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 Stanton at ATL – $6,500
Recently I’ve been paying up for expensive quarterbacks, but this week there are a few nice cheaper options. One is Ryan Fitzpatrick, who is the minimum of $5,000 on FanDuel – he’s a nice play but comes with a limited ceiling. Stanton is a little more expensive but comes with more upside. The Falcons are allowing 284.2 passing yards per game and Stanton has proven he’s capable of moving the ball. Just tell yourself you’re relying on “Bruce Arians’ quarterback.”
Arian Foster vs. TEN – $8,700
Those playing Foster must check the pregame reports to make sure that he is healthy and likely to receive a full workload. If he is, Foster is an elite RB1 play. The Titans are allowing the most fantasy points to opposing running backs. Foster scored 37.3 fantasy points against the Titans in Week 8.
Dan Herron vs. WAS – $5,800
Thrust in to the starter’s role, Herron already looks more impressive than Trent Richardson. We can all assume that he will lead the Colts backfield in touches going forward. The Colts have the 2nd highest projected total for the week and will have clock-killing carries. Herron will have a solid opportunity to return value on his cheap price tag.
Antonio Brown vs. NO – $9,200
Antonio Brown at home is always a good idea. For the season Brown is averaging 8.4/122.8/1.2 at home and 7.7/91/0.5 on the road. Pay up for his consistency, he’s worth the price tag.
Josh Gordon at BUF – $8,100
As the 11th most expensive wide receiver, Josh Gordon is still undervalued. With 16 targets last week, the Browns showed that he will have heavy usage in their passing attack. Gordon has the ability to explode any time he walks on the field.
Kenny Stills at PIT – $5,100
The Saints usage of Kenny Stills last week was encouraging. Instead of just targeting him deep, Stills was used in the short and intermediate passing game – showing the Saints intend to get the ball in his hands. He finished with eight receptions for 98 yards. Luckily on FanDuel his price remained suppressed, as he didn’t find the end zone.
Jimmy Graham at PIT – $7,500
When selecting a tight end, you have to pay up for quality. There are no reliable options this week behind Graham and Gronk. Since Graham is cheaper, I’m happy to start him in a solid matchup against the Steelers.
