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 at PHI – $7,200
Sitting in between Tony Romo and Joe Flacco, Eli Manning is a nice value this week. Since Week 1, Eli Manning has at least two touchdown passes each week and hasn’t thrown for below 200 passing yards. The Eagles also haven’t allowed fewer than two touchdown passes in any game this season. Only the Redskins have been a more favorable matchup for opposing quarterbacks.
Matt Forte at ATL – $9,000
While he is expensive, Matt Forte is worth his price this week. He’ll be receiving a monster workload against the league’s worst defense. The Falcons are the only team to allow more than six touchdowns to opposing backfields – they’ve allowed nine. Thus far the Falcons have been by far the most favorable matchup for opposing running backs. Expect a huge week from Forte.
Braden Oliver at OAK – $6,200
Still at a relatively discounted price, Braden Oliver is an exciting play this week. He showed his ability by going off against the Jets last week and will receive a monster workload with Donald Brown out this week. The Raiders have allowed 120+ rushing yards and a touchdown to opposing running backs in three of their four games.
Rueben Randle at PHI – $5,900
For an extremely cheap price, Rueben Randle is certainly worth playing. He’s leading the Giants in targets and faces an extremely favorable matchup. The Eagles have allowed the most points to opposing wide receivers. Expect Randle to find the end zone in this matchup.
Golden Tate at MIN – $6,400
With Calvin Johnson out, Golden Tate has been a target monster. Besides his running backs, Matt Stafford doesn’t have many reliable targets outside of Tate. Opposing number one receivers have posted very solid games against the Vikings; pencil Tate in for a big week.
Michael Floyd vs. WAS – $6,300
I like Michael Floyd as a tournament play. With many concerned about the controversy surrounding the Cardinals’ quarterback uncertainty, many will be fading Floyd. If this were a typical week with Carson Palmer starting, everyone would want Floyd in their lineups against the dreadful Redskins’ secondary. Even with Drew Stanton, there’s no reason why Floyd can’t exploit this favorable matchup.
Martellus Bennett at ATL – $5,900
There’s not a lot of reliability at tight end with Jimmy Graham on bye. Martellus Bennett is a good player that will play in the game that will likely be the highest scoring of this week. He’s also tied for the lead in targets on the Bears and only the 7th most expensive tight end.
