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 DEN – $5,900
Despite coming with some inherent risk, Drew Stanton makes for an interesting starter. At $5,900 he’s cheap but comes with upside while facing a Broncos team that will force the Cardinals to throw. Coach Bruce Arians loves to throw the ball and the Broncos are allowing the 4th most points to opposing quarterbacks.
Rashad Jennings vs. ATL – $7,200
After resting on Thursday night, Rashad Jennings will be fresh for this week’s matchup against the Falcons. The Falcons have been the most favorable matchup for opposing running backs. Running backs have rushed for eight touchdowns against the Falcons, no other team has allowed more than five.
Khiry Robinson vs. TB – $4,900
In terms of cheap running backs, no one is a better value than Khiry Robinson. It’s nice to have the clock-killing running back on a team that is a heavy favorite. The Saints are favored by 11 and will likely give the Bucs a healthy dose of Robinson in the 4th quarter.
Keenan Allen vs. NYJ – $7,000
Few wide receivers at Keenan Allen’s price come with the same kind of upside that he possesses. Facing a weak Jets secondary, Allen is a sure-fire WR1 this week. He’s just the 19th most expensive WR on FanDuel.
Michael Floyd at DEN – $6,400
Michael Floyd is an interesting target this week. With 33 wide receivers listed at higher prices, Floyd is undervalued. He offers blow-up potential in a shootout against the Broncos. Vegas has the Broncos/Cardinals game as the 2nd highest scoring matchup on Sunday.
Allen Robinson vs. PIT – $5,000
The Jaguars are likely to be playing from behind against the Steelers this week. That means a lot of pass attempts for Blake Bortles. With Cecil Shorts and Marquise Lee out, Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns could be in for a boatload of targets – Robinson is the cheaper investment.
Clay Harbor vs. PIT – $5,000
While I believe Jimmy Graham is the best value, I figured I’d provide owners with a cheaper option this week. If you want a cheap tight end, Clay Harbor is your guy. As mentioned above, the Jaguars are in need of pass catchers. Harbor caught 8 of 8 targets last week.
