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.
Jay Cutler vs. GB – $8,100
When looking for quarterbacks, it’s great to use underdogs who are at home. Underdogs are typically forced to pass a lot because they’re down and quarterbacks are more efficient at home. Cutler fits the criteria and doesn’t come attached to a killer price tag.
Matt Forte vs. GB – $8,600
I’m not against the idea of stacking players, especially against a bad defense. Forte comes with a hefty price tag but should perform against a defense that has allowed a rushing touchdown in every game this season. I wouldn’t mind inserting Eddie Lacy but he comes with a similar price tag and isn’t guaranteed as many touches.
Lamar Miller at OAK – $6,900
After playing well last week, Lamar Miller is now averaging 5.75 yards per carry. With questions surrounding Ryan Tannehill, he’s guaranteed a heavy workload. It doesn’t hurt that the Raiders have allowed the most rushing yards to opposing running backs this season.
Alshon Jeffery vs. GB – $7,600
If we’re buying in to the Chicago offense, we have to stack Alshon Jeffery. With Brandon Marshall injured, Alshon was heavily targeted last week. While Marshall still hasn’t practiced this week, Alshon has been removed from the injury report. At $7,600, he’s a relatively cheap target monster.
Mike Wallace at OAK – $6,500
Despite the struggles of Tannehill, Mike Wallace has been consistently productive this season. It’s more his price tag than his matchup that entices me. I would prefer if the Dolphins had a tough matchup that would force them to pass all game but Lamar Miller is a solid stack because he would benefit from that game flow.
Justin Hunter at IND – $5,300
Despite being without their starting quarterback, I believe that one of the Titans receivers will have a big game. The hard part is predicting which guy. The Colts will likely jump out to a big lead in this one, meaning lots of pass attempts from the Titans.
Jimmy Graham at DAL – $8,200
I don’t think there’s any question as to if Jimmy Graham is worth his price tag. He’s the best tight end in the league and faces the defense that is the worst at defending the tight end position. Find a way to get him in your daily lineup.
