If you are playing DFS Fantasy Football at sites like FanDuel or Draft Kings its all about value. Today I will give you three options at wide receiver and two more at tight end that should provide great value and allow you to spend more money elsewhere.
Wide Receivers and Tight Ends
WR: Kamar Aiken Baltiomore Ravens (FanDuel $6,000, Draft Kings $4,300) Aiken has been decent this season and lets face it he’s one of the only capable receivers the Ravens currently use. He’s hauled in 15 passes for 243 yards and a touchdown this season and has a road matchup against a league worst passing defense of the 49ers. Aiken is available in just over 65 percent of all Major Fantasy Football leagues.
WR: Allan Hurns Jacksonville Jaguars (FanDuel 6,500, Draft Kings $5,000) Hurns has been quite good this season catching 27 of Blake Bortles passes for 430 yards and 3 touchdowns as well as 2 fumbles. His matchup this week is at home against the Houston Texans who allow 236 passing yards per game. Hurns isn’t the number 1 option but as we’ve seen over the last couple of games Bortles sends balls his way. Hurns is available in just over 30 percent of all Major Fantasy Football leagues.
WR: Lance Moore Detroit Lions (FanDuel $4,500, Draft Kings $3,000) If Lions tight end Eric Ebron doesn’t suit up again this then and only then would I consider rostering Moore. Last week Moore had a nice game last week against the Arizona Cardinals catching 6 passes for 55 yards and a touchdown. He’ll have a tougher task ahead of him this week against a strong Bears passing defense but the opportunities should be there for Moore.
TE: Gary Barnridge Cleveland Browns (FanDuel $5,700, Draft Kings $4,400) If you are playing at FanDuel and Draft Kings then you already know Barnridge is a big producer. If you are a Cleveland Browns fan then you also know Barnridge leads the team in receptions with 24 including touchdowns in his last 3 games. The Browns have a much tougher matchup this Sunday against the #5 team againts the pass in the Denver Broncos and his price is great if you want to spend up this week. Barnridge is also available in just over 30 percent of all Major Fantasy Football leagues so grab him while you can.
TE: Brent Celek Philadelphia Eagles (FanDuel $4,700, Draft Kings $2,500) Celek is priced so low its incredible and this week he has a very good matchup against the #31 passing defense NY Giants. Celek has scored a touchdown in each of his last 2 games and while he isn’t the sexy choice if he scores another touchdown this week he’ll double his value. For seasonal leagues I wouldn’t roster him unless I’m in a deep league of 16 teams or more.
