A lot of the same players are in my lineups at both FanDuel and Draft Kings this week.
This list is not exhaustive, but it should give you quite a few starting or finishing spots this week:
Philip Rivers — Rivers remains a top-5 QB with a sub-top-5 price at both sites. He has an excellent matchup this week.
Seneca Wallace — Speaking of matchups, this is a good one for Aaron Rodgers‘ backup. He’s not going to throw 5 TDs, but he’ll greatly outproduce his salary.
Drew Brees — Brees is pricy but he has the best QB matchup this week and will battle Peyton Manning for most fantasy points from a QB
Reggie Bush — FanDuel is a half-point PPR league and Draft Kings is a PPR league. Bush might be a top-3 back this week and is priced well under that.
Mike James — Doug Martin’s handcuff has the second-best matchup of the week. He probably won’t drop 30, but his minimal price allows you to upgrade at WR or QB and still get solid starter numbers
Chris Johnson — The Titans are playing Jacksonville this week so Johnson should be a lock to outperform his price this week.
Danny Woodhead — At $6,600 on FanDuel and $5,600 at Draft Kings, Woodhead is a steal. He has two 9-catch games, an 8-catch game and a 7-catch game this year.
Keenan Allen — The Chargers’ budding star is still an extreme value at both FanDuel and Draft Kings. If you only play one lineup this week, make sure Allen is in it.
Antonio Brown — Brown’s price has been on the rise and he is barely a value at Draft Kings. However, his matchup is great this week.
Brandon Marshall — Marshall is pricy in both formats, but he’s probably worth it against the Lions, even if Cutler aggravates his injury.
Brian Hartline — He’s in my lineups at Draft Kings because his PPR upside is too high for his $3,900 price tag.
Wes Welker — I don’t like to roster Denver receivers because the week I roster Wes Welker, Eric Decker will score three TDs. But this week Welker is in too many of my lineups to ignore.
Antonio Gates — Gates is a steal at $6,900 on FanDuel and $5,800 at Draft Kings. He’s probably in 75% of my lineups this week.
Jimmy Graham — I won’t pay full price for a lot of players, but I always make an exception for Jimmy Graham in a couple leagues.
Garrett Graham — On paper, Graham has the best TE matchup of the week against the Cardinals. His price is cheap too.
Tyler Eifert — The Cincinnatti rookie will not have to share TE targets with Jermaine Gresham this week and he has an excellent matchup against the Ravens.
Tim Wright — Another solid value play here in an excellent TE matchup against the Dolphins.
The bottom of the list guys this week are Dan Carpenter and Caleb Sturgis. If you want to upgrade a bit look at Nick Novak, David Akers and Dan Bailey. Steven Hauschka, Robbie Gould and Mason Crosby are a little pricy, but they have good matchups. In the larger tournament games, like Sunday Quarter Arcades at Draft Kings and the Sunday Dives at FanDuel, a half a point can sometimes be the difference between a goose egg and finishing in the money.
Titans defense all day against the Jaguars. They are a good value at both sites too. If you play multiple lineups and you want to mix it up a bit. I like the Cardinals, Raiders and Bills as low- to medium-priced Ds. The upper tier Ds that might be worth the price this week are Seattle and San Francisco.
If you’re trying to fill your Draft Kings Flex spot or your final position at FanDuel you might just need a bottom of the barrel player with upside. The following players could fit that bill this week: Eddie Royal, Donald Brown, Mike Brown, Doug Baldwin, Marquise Goodwin, Jason Avant and Dennis Johnson.
