Hey FanDuel Fantasy Football player!
Did you win last week? Last week’s value picks weren’t meant to be an entire roster but I entered them anyway and we didn’t win. We did come awfully close and I have some ideas as to how to change things this week
Please remember that the list below isn’t meant to be an entire roster…..these are picks I believe will get you extreme value in order for you to spend up on certain players if you so choose. Of course you can also go with this entire lineup or just pick a couple or disregard the entire list and do your own thing!
The other thing I want you to remember is this; our goal is to get 2 Fantasy points per $1000 dollars of salary spent and if they exceed that then we have a great opportunity to win some real cash on Sunday.
QB: Last week’s selection of Ryan Tannehill wasn’t the best idea I ever had……and this week I’m going to spend less and hopefully get more value by adding the Bengals Andy Dalton ($7,600) to the mix. 8 TD’s and 1 interception for 866 yards is nothing to sneeze at and he’s got a fairly good opportunity to do some damage against the 287 yards passing per game allowing Chiefs so this could be good on Sunday.
RB: I like the Falcons Devonta Freeman ($7,200) on Sunday against the Texans. The Texans 108 rushing yards allowed is pretty good but Freeman is better. Freeman just torched a very good Cowboys rushing defense for 141 yards and 3 touchdowns and is also a pass catching threat as well. $7200 was the clincher for me. That’s too good a price to pass up on Sunday.
RB: I like the Browns Isaiah Crowell ($6,200) against the defensively challenged Chargers rushing defense on Sunday. Josh McCown is still the Browns starting QB and with that bad Chargers rushing defense handing the ball off to Crowell might not make him look so bad on Sunday. Plus it would be the smart thing to do. It’s also an awfully low price to pay for the Browns backfield workhorse.
WR: I really like tandems and I like the tandem of Dalton and A.J. Green ($8,400) on Sunday against the Chiefs. Green is the Bengals and Dalton’s big play guy and he hasn’t disappointed this season with 2 catches of 40 yards or more including an 80 yard touchdown reception. Look for Green and Dalton to hook up plenty on Sunday.
WR: The Cardinals Larry Fitzgerald ($7,400) is having a nice season thus far and he’s delivered as Carson Palmer’s go to guy with 23 receptions for 5 TD’s already this season. Sunday should be a good test against a Rams defense that has only allowed 202 passing yards per contest but Fitzgerald should be good to go on Sunday.
WR: Keenan Allen ($7,700) has a nice matchup against the pass defense of the Cleveland Browns. The Browns have allowed 238 yards per game and that bodes well for Allen who torched the Vikings in week three with 12 receptions for 133 yards and 2 TD’s.
TE: This week I have to flip the script and go with Charles Clay ($5,200) this week against the NY Giants. QB Tyrod Taylor is the talk of the NFL and one of his main targets is Clay. Last week Clay had 4 catches for 44 yards and while he didn’t find the end zone Sunday he has been there twice this season and should find his way in there a couple of times this Sunday.
K: Last week our kicker got zero points. That sucked. This week we are going to go with the Bills Dan Carpenter ($4,700) for the same reasons we went with the Dolphins kicker last week. Buffalo should score lots and that means Carpenter should be kicking lots.
Defense: Last week I scrimped on my defense and it cost us money. You get what you pay for right? I’m not making that mistake and going with the Legion of Boom also known as the Seattle Seahawks ($5,300). They are playing the Detroit Lions on Monday night and let’s face it; the Lions offense is near the bottom of the pack, the Seahawks defense is near the top and also playing at home. This could be a good way to finish the weekend!
