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.
Drew Brees vs. ATL – $9,100
Drew Brees looked magnificent on Monday night, moving the ball whenever necessary en route to 375 passing yards and three touchdowns. He’s now reached at least 27 FanDuel fantasy points in three of his last four games. He’s a near lock for success against the Falcons.
C.J. Anderson at CIN – $7,800
At $7,800, C.J. Anderson provides daily players with a solid RB1 at a reasonable price. Anderson has been receiving massive workloads and the Bengals are allowing the 5th most fantasy points to opposing running backs.
Fred Jackson at OAK – $6,700
Despite C.J. Spiller’s return, I expect Fred Jackson to continue to see heavy workloads. His 3rd down work keeps his floor high and the Raiders have allowed the most receiving touchdowns to running backs this season. They’re allowing the 2nd most fantasy points to opposing running backs this season. I also considered Tre Mason in this space.
Dez Bryant vs. IND – $8,600
With DeMarco Murray banged up, look for the Cowboys to heavily target Dez. Colts/Cowboys is currently Vegas’ 2nd highest projected total. There should be plenty of offense in this game – expect Dez to be included in the fun.
Kenny Stills vs. ATL – $6,100
Kenny Stills has been heavily involved since Brandin Cooks went down. This week the Saints have a dreamy matchup against the Falcons defense. The Falcons have allowed the 4th most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers. Stills is affordable and will have a chance to pay off big in what should be this week’s highest scoring game.
Donte Moncrief at DAL – $5,900
With T.Y. Hilton likely out, Donte Moncrief will be heavily involved for the Colts. Lacking playmakers outside of Hilton, the Colts won’t be moving the ball with Hakeem Nicks and Reggie Wayne. This is a great spot for Moncrief to show why he deserves more snaps.
Martellus Bennett vs. DET – $6,200
While Jimmy Clausen is tough to rely on, the Bears will have plenty of garbage time. Bennett figures to be something of a safety valve for Clausen and should see enough targets to be a worthy tight end play.
