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.
Aaron Rodgers vs. CAR – $9,700
With few reliable streamers, it’s a nice week to pay a premium for a quarterback. Rodgers has thrown for ten touchdowns in his last four games and can be trusted as this week’s top quarterback play. The Panthers’ secondary has allowed at least two touchdown passes in five of six games this season.
Andre Ellington at OAK – $7,100
Andre Ellington is an exciting play this week. He’s only the 16th most expensive running back but faces a Raiders’ defense that is allowing the 4th most points to opposing running backs. The Raiders have allowed 100+ rushing yards and a touchdown in four of their five games this season.
Justin Forsett vs. BAL – $6,200
With a cheap price of $6,200, Justin Forsett is my favorite FanDuel play this week. He’s proven himself as the top running back in Baltimore and has a cake matchup this week. The Falcons are the only team to allow more than seven rushing touchdowns to opposing running backs – they’ve allowed 11. They’ve also allowed the most rushing yards (767) to opposing running backs.
Jordy Nelson vs. CAR – $8,900
This is a really nice week to stack Jordy Nelson and Aaron Rodgers. Over his past three games, Jordy Nelson has 20 catches for 281 yards and four touchdowns. There’s a good chance they’ll connect for another touchdown against the Panthers’ poor secondary.
Golden Tate vs. NO – $6,700
With Calvin Johnson out, Golden Tate has been a target monster. The Saints are allowing the 4th most points to opposing wide receivers. Tate will be the Lions’ best means of moving the ball through the air.
Andre Holmes vs. ARI – $6,000
Coming off a 121-yard two-touchdown performance, Andre Holmes is a nice value. He led the Raiders’ wide receivers in snaps last week and has a tasty matchup against the Cardinals. The Cardinals are allowing the most points to opposing wide receivers out of teams playing this week.
Jordan Cameron at JAC – $6,100
With the Browns’ rushing attack clicking on all cylinders, Jordan Cameron received favorable looks from the defense last week. Expect Cameron to keep rolling against a Jaguars’ defense that is allowing the 4th most points to opposing tight ends.
