Week 5 FanDuel Lineup
Each week I will be releasing my favorite FanDuel plays for the weekend. These plays are decided by market prices and match ups. When I believe someone is a bargain that owners can benefit off of, this is the space that I’ll let my secrets out.
Let’s not waste anymore time, there’s money to be made.
Blake Bortles at TB – $6900
Since facing Carolina in Week 1, Bortles has scored at least 17 points in each game. He’s improving and suddenly has a nice supporting cast with Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns, and T.J. Yeldon. This week Bortles is inexpensive and allows you fit other high priced players into your lineup.
Le’Veon Bell at SD – $9000
There isn’t a running back in the NFL that’s better than Le’Veon Bell. With Big Ben hurt, the Steelers will heavily rely on the league’s best back. The Chargers have allowed the 2nd most fantasy points to opposing running backs. This is a week to pay up for Le’Veon.
Devonta Freeman vs. WAS – $7600
Freeman has scored 75.2 fantasy points over his last two games. Last week’s game got so out of hand that he only played 56.7% of the snaps. The Redskins have played solid run defense but Freeman’s price and workload make him a solid play.
Keenan Allen vs. PIT – $7700
With the injuries to Stevie Johnson and Malcom Floyd, Keenan Allen becomes more likely to be targeted. Already a target monster, Allen will have a heavy workload in a solid matchup against the Steelers secondary.
James Jones vs. STL – $6400
With Davante Adams still sidelined, Jones will be one of Aaron Rodgers’ top two targets for at least another week. Jones has been phenomenal this year but his price is still extremely affordable.
Allen Robinson at TB – $6300
After breaking out in Week 2, Robinson has been quiet. We know how talented he is but he hasn’t had the right matchup. With Hurns showing what he can do last week, it’ll be Robinson’s turn to exploit coverage this week. At just $6300, he’s a solid option.
Travis Kelce vs. CHI – $6500
While Chicago has defended tight ends well, they haven’t faced anyone of Kelce’s caliber this year. We know from Week 1 that Kelce is capable of exploding – a home game against Chicago will give him a nice opportunity to do so this week.
Cairo Santos vs. CHI – $4600
Santos was wonderful last week, making seven of seven field goal attempts. This week he’s still cheaply price in what should be a high scoring game.
Green Bay Packers vs. STL – $4800
Despite coming off a road win against the Cardinals, the Rams are still no match for Aaron Rodgers’ Packers. As home favorites, the Packers should have the lead necessary to force the Rams to throw more than they would like to.
