Our very own DFS Accountant Keagan Scott got you DFS'ers off to a great start for this weekend with his DraftKings lineup yesterday. Let's get you FanDuel'ers a lineup you can hopefully cash in with on GPP's. Let's kick this off. We're going big time this week, with a $5 entry into the Sling $1M contest (up to 235k entries).
Defense: Buffalo is scoring over 12 ppg in FanDuel scoring and has a favorable matchup against the Dolphins, who are giving up the 5th-most points to opposing DEFs. At $4,700, it seems like a decent deal.
Kicker: We're not quite to a point seasonally to start looking for indoor (or warm weather) kickers only, but indoor kicking does sometimes translate into better production. We like Matt Prater ($4,600), who's scoring over 8 ppg. Good matchup against the Redskins, points should be scored.
QB/WR/TE stack: We'll get right to it: we love the Jags this week, especially the passing game. The run game is still a work in progress and only 3 other teams allow more points to QBs than the Raiders. Only 2 others allow more to WRs and 4 to TEs. So we're plugging in Blake Bortles ($7,400 - an absolute steal), Allen Robinson ($8,400 - costly, but should be worth it), and Julius Thomas ($5,500 - a value).
Running Back: Jamaal Charles was back last week but it was Spencer Ware ($7,000) that got most of the fantasy love. Against the #32 ranked Saints' run D, we figure Ware will be worth the $7k. There are some nifty little RB fill-ins this week that will make that number seem even more palatable.
Running Back: Last time Jacquizz Rodgers ($5,600 - just insane), got the start, he ran for over 100 yards and caught 5 balls (against the Panthers, no less). Well, Doug Martin again appears to be out, allowing Rodgers to start against the Niners, who are terrible against the run. Yes please.
Wide Receivers: We have an average of $8,400 per player left, with a couple of wideouts yet to ink. We will put our money where our mouths are and play Marvin Jones ($7,700 - our #3 WR this week). This allows us to plug our #1 WR (Julio Jones, $8,500) in with $600 to spare.
