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 at NO – $9000
With Tom Brady nursing injuries to many of his weapons, Cam Newton is the clear top quarterback. No team has allowed more fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks than the Saints. The Saints have allowed at least two passing touchdowns in seven straight games.
Shaun Draughn at CHI – $5900
With all of the split backfields, volume is becoming a big concern for running backs. Draughn has no such concerns; last week he played every snap for the 49ers at running back. Draughn’s receiving prowess has given him a nice floor. It helps that the Bears have allowed the second most fantasy points to opposing running backs.
David Johnson at STL – $5300
Those who follow my writing know that I love David Johnson. With Chris Johnson and Andre Ellington injured, David Johnson will step into a starting role. At just $5300, his price hasn’t caught up with value. Johnson will play a high volume role and his receiving process fits well in the Cardinals pass-heavy offense.
Alshon Jeffery vs. SF – $7700
When healthy, Alshon Jeffery has been an absolute beast. Finally fully healthy Jeffery is not even listed on the Week 13 injury report. Facing a 49ers defense that has been dreadful on the road, Jeffery is in for a big week.
Eric Decker at NYG – $7200
With at least 80 yards and/or a touchdown in every game, Eric Decker has been a model of consistency. The Giants secondary is far from imposing so Decker will have his opportunities.
Danny Amendola vs. PHI – $6700
With Julian Edelman, Dion Lewis, and Rob Gronkowski injured, Danny Amendola will be a featured part of the Patriots offense. Before his knee injury, Amendola had 19 catches in two games. He’ll be the apple of Tom Brady’s eye against the Eagles. Adding fuel to the fire, the Eagles have allowed the most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers, including seven touchdown receptions in their last two games.
Travis Kelce at OAK – $6200
Seeing at least seven targets in each of his last four games, Kelce is seeing the necessary targets to be productive. We know he has the skill and now he has the matchup. The Raiders have allowed a league-high 11 touchdowns to opposing tight ends.
Robbie Gould vs. SF – $4600
At just $4600, Robbie Gould is a cheap and quality option. As some would say, Gould is good as gold.
Washington Redskins vs. DAL – $4400
The Redskins have been a different team at home; the Cowboys have been a different team without Tony Romo. Cassel has proven incapable of moving the ball without turning it over. He’ll need to move the ball to keep up with the Redskins at home.
