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.
Eli Manning vs. WAS – $7,500
While paying up for quarterback can pay dividends, I like Eli Manning at just $7,500. Manning faces a hopeless Redskin pass defense that is allowing the most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks.
Le’Veon Bell at ATL – $9,600
While he is very expensive, Le’Veon Bell is the best play in fantasy football this week. Over his last three games, Bell is averaging 36.4 fantasy points per game. He now draws the most favorable matchup for running backs.
Justin Forsett vs. JAC – $7,700
Vegas predicts that the Ravens will win this game by 14 points, meaning they’ll be playing with a lead. With Torrey Smith iffy and the predicted game flow, it projects to be a high volume game for Forsett. He’s been productive and doesn’t come with a massive price tag.
Odell Beckham Jr. vs. WAS – $8,500
Odell Beckham has been amazingly consistent, averaging 8.2 catches over his last six games. He’ll be the focus of the Giants pass offense against arguably the worst secondary in the NFL. Dez Bryant also deserves consideration at $8,500.
Charles Johnson at DET – $6,600
Although the Lions’ secondary has played well this season, Johnson projects to be a target monster while the Vikings play from behind. Johnson is an athletic freak on a team that doesn’t have many other weapons. He’s also inexpensive.
Marquess Wilson vs. NO – $4,500
For his price, Wilson is a nice play. With Marshall out for the season, there is a huge target void to fill on the Bears. Wilson should see single coverage and has sneaky sleeper appeal in what could be a high scoring game.
Martellus Bennett vs. NO – $6,200
With Marshall out, Bennett will continue to see a large percentage of Jay Cutler’s targets. Last week that led to 12 catches for 84 yards and a touchdown. Bennett is a top three tight end play at just the 6th most expensive price.
