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.
Tom Brady vs. WAS – $9500
Tom Brady has at least 25 fantasy points in five of seven games and at least 20 in all seven. He’s been phenomenal. In a week with so many nice cheap options, Brady’s superiority at QB is worth paying up for.
DeAngelo Williams vs. OAK – $6500
There’s no doubt that Oakland has played well against the run but DeAngelo Williams’ likely volume make him a worthy play. In the only two games without Le’Veon Bell, the Steelers featured Williams giving him at least 20 carries. He’ll see a heavy workload with an affordable price tag.
Jeremy Langford at SD – $6400
No team has allowed more fantasy points to opposing running backs than the San Diego Chargers. At just $4,600, Langford will step into a starting role with the perfect matchup. ESPN Bears reporter Jeff Dickerson said, “it would be a surprise” if RB Jeremy Langford did not get 20 carries against the Chargers.
Antonio Brown vs. OAK – $8700
With Le’Veon Bell out, you can expect Antonio Brown to be featured throughout the game. The Raiders are exploitable through the air and Big Ben should be ready to go. All signs points to a big game for Brown this Sunday.
Emmanuel Sanders at IND – $7600
With Demaryius Thomas likely to be covered by Vontae Davis, there are expectations that this will be a big Emmanuel Sanders game. His price isn’t prohibitive and the Denver offense moved the ball well last Sunday night. Look for Sanders to be involved this week.
Stevie Johnson vs. CHI – $5400
With Keenan Allen out for the season, Stevie Johnson becomes a much bigger part of the Chargers offense. The Bears have proven exploitable through the air and Philip Rivers’ volume has been solid all season. At just $5400, Stevie Johnson is a perfect low-price play.
Antonio Gates vs. CHI – $6000
With Keenan Allen out for the season, Philip Rivers has even more reason to target Antonio Gates frequently. Now presumably healthy, Gates is an extremely affordable tight end play.
Sebastian Janikowski at PIT – $4500
At just $4500, Janikowski is a minimum priced kicker and has at least 13 points in each of his last three games. In what should be a very high scoring game, he’s a quality option.
Denver Broncos at IND – $5300
The Broncos defense has been insanely productive this season. They have at least 14 points in five of seven games and at least nine points in all seven. The Colts have struggled on offense this season and haven’t seen a defense equal to the Broncos.
