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.
Cam Newton vs. WAS – $8600
Cam Newton is my top quarterback play this week. Cam has at least 16 points in each of his last eight games. The Redskins have allowed multiple touchdown passes in six of their last seven games. If you’re looking for a cheap option, don’t be afraid to use Case Keenum for just $4800.
Charcandrick West at SD – $7100
No team has allowed more fantasy points to opposing running backs than the Chargers. The Chargers have allowed at least 100 rushing yards to opposing running backs in seven of their last eight games. West’s price still doesn’t match his workload and talent – he’s a chalk play this week.
Darren McFadden at MIA – $6800
For running backs, volume is extremely important. Since taking over as the Cowboys lead back, McFadden has received 20 carries in three of four games. With Tony Romo returning, the Cowboys offensive will improve drastically. His return will dramatically help McFadden, who has little competition for touches.
Larry Fitzgerald vs. CIN – $7400
Larry Fitzgerald has seen below eight targets just twice this season. With Michael Floyd and John Brown banged up, Fitzgerald will be a big part of the Cardinals’ game plan. He has blow-up potential in one of this week’s potential shootouts.
Michael Crabtree at DET – $6500
Michael Crabtree is in the midst of a renaissance year. He has at least 54 receiving yards in each of his last six games. Still a relatively inexpensive option, Crabtree draws a nice matchup against the Lions. Darius Slay will cover Amari Cooper, making Crabtree a nice daily fantasy option.
Stevie Johnson vs. KC – $5600
With Keenan Allen and Malcolm Floyd out, the Chargers will lean heavily on Stevie Johnson and Antonio Gates. In a game with sneaky shootout potential, Johnson will see enough targets to have a productive day. Few wide receivers combine such a cheap price tag and high target floor.
Antonio Gates vs. KC – $5900
Antonio Gates has at least 11 targets in three of his four games played this season. Coming off a bye, his knee should be feeling a lot better. The Chiefs have defended tight ends well but Rivers is sure to lean heavily on a healthy Antonio Gates.
Sebastian Janikowski at DET – $4600
At just $4600, Janikowski is a cheap and quality option.
Carolina Panthers vs. WAS – $4900
Facing Kirk Cousins at home, the Panthers are worth paying up for this week. Only the 49ers have a lower projected team total than the Redskins. This season Cousins has thrown seven interceptions in four games on the road.
