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.
Carson Palmer vs. BAL – $8200
No team has allowed more fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks than the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens have allowed at least two passing touchdowns and 340 passing yards in four of their last five games. The only quarterback not to exploit them was Michael Vick. Palmer is at home with the most favorable matchup for a quarterback.
Todd Gurley vs. CLE – $7400
At just $7,400, Todd Gurley is a steal this week. Over his past two games Gurley has rushed for 305 yards. This week he faces the Browns, who are allowing the 4th most fantasy points to opposing running backs. The Browns have allowed at least 152 rushing yards to opposing rushing backs in four of their six games this season.
Lamar Miller vs. HOU – $6700
Returning from the bye the Dolphins made it clear that they’re prioritizing the run-game. Miller rewarded them by rushing 19 times for 113 yards (5.9 YPC). He’s a talented back that should see a healthy workload. The Texans have been far from imposing to opposing running backs.
DeAndre Hopkins at MIA – $9200
I’m a sucker for DeAndre Hopkins. Seeing an average of 14.8 targets per game, Hopkins has an extremely high floor. He’s scored under 24 PPR points in one of six games this season. I’m happy to pay up for him against a mediocre Dolphin secondary.
Larry Fitzgerald vs. BAL – $7800
If I’m in love with Palmer’s matchup, I’m obviously going to be on Larry Fitzgerald. With John Brown’s hamstring tightening up, Fitzgerald figures to be Palmer’s top target. With at least 14.7 PPR points in every game this season, Fitzgerald has a really high floor in this cake matchup.
Stefon Diggs at DET – $5800
With 19 targets over his last two games, Diggs has performed impressively against the Broncos and Chiefs. Diggs led Viking WRs in snaps last week and appears to be their top wideout. For a price of just $5800, he’s a nice cheap option at WR.
Antonio Gates vs. OAK – $5800
Despite no Bronco tight end catching a pass against them, the Raiders are still allowing the most fantasy points to opposing tight ends. Aside from the Broncos game, the Raiders have allowed at least six catches, 83 yards, and one touchdown to opposing tight ends in every game. Gates has the best matchup possible and a cheap price tag, making him a chalk play this week.
Travis Coons at STL – $4500
At just $4500, Coons is a minimum priced kicker. He’s played well this season and will kick in a dome against the Rams.
St. Louis Rams vs. CLE – $4500
Coming off a bye, the Rams defense has a wonderful matchup against the Browns. McCown has been playing well but we know the Rams rush the quarterback very well. They’re one of the best defensive plays this week.
