The FFX: Fanduel DFS Plays Week 14

My strategy in Fanduel DFS during any given week is usually to pay up for the high-volume workhorse backs who are involved in the passing game. In order to do that, I try to find low-price value plays at the other positions.

Below you’ll see some players I might spend up for based on opportunity. On the contrary, you’ll find some low priced; value plays that should get an opportunity on the field as well as give you some leverage in terms of ownership. What I look for when selecting my plays of the week are Volume, Consistency, Matchup, Value, and Opportunity.

Quarterbacks

Play of the Slate:

Ryan Fitzpatrick @ NYJ – $7,400

Ryan Fitzpatrick has been hot as of late. He has been a top-five quarterback in each of the last two weeks against weak defenses, and the streak could continue this week against the Jets. Fitzpatrick throws the ball with no fear, and the Dolphins have nothing to lose. He is a great value with respect to his air yards and pass attempts, especially with running back, Kalen Ballage being placed on IR.

Other Top Plays at the Position:

Andy Dalton @ CLE – $7,000

Jacoby Brissett @ TB – $7,400

Sam Darnold vs. MIA – $7,700

Kirk Cousins vs. DET – $8,200

Aaron Rodgers vs. WAS – $8,400

Runningbacks

Play of the Slate:

Leonard Fournette vs. LAC – $7,500

In the last two weeks, Fournette has seen a massive target share in the passing game. He had 11 and 12 targets in each of the previous two games along with 14 and 24 carries. There’s no doubt that Fournette should see 20+ total touches in a solid matchup against the weak Charger run defense. As long as Fournette remains under 7k, he should be no brainer autoplay in your lineups based on volume and opportunity.

Other Top Plays at the Position:

Devonta Freeman vs. CAR – $6,000

Benny Snell Jr. @ ARI – $6,100

Joe Mixon @ CLE – $6,700

Le’Veon Bell vs. MIA – $7,300

Melvin Gordon @ JAC – $7,300

Derrick Henry @ OAK -$9,100

Wide Receivers

Play of the Slate:

DeVante Parker @ NYJ – $7,200

Parker is coming off a breakout game, reaching over 100 yards and two touchdowns. He has been one of the most consistent wide receivers of the season, reaching eight or more fantasy points in 11 of 12 games. For the simple fact of him being on the Dolphins, it seems that Fanduel refuses to price him too high. Pair him with quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick for one of my favorite stacks on the slate.

Other Top Plays at the Position: 

Christian Kirk vs. PIT – $5,900

Zach Pascal @ TB – $6,100

John Brown vs. BAL – $6,400

James Washington @ ARI – $6,700

Calvin Ridley vs. CAR – $6,900

DJ Moore @ ATL – $7,100

Stefon Diggs vs. DET – $8,000

Davante Adams vs. WAS – $8,400

Tight Ends

Play of the Slate:

Kyle Rudolph vs. DET – $4,800

Rudolph has seen at least five targets in each of the last four games to along with six touchdowns in the previous six games. With Adam Theilen likely out another week, Rudolph should continue to see a large target share from Kirk Cousins against a beatable Detroit secondary.

Other Top Plays at the Position:

Noah Fant @ HOU – $4,800

Jonnu Smith @ OAK – $4,900

Darren Waller vs. TEN – $6,200

Jack Doyle @ TB – $6,300

Hunter Henry @ JAC – $6,400

Defense/Special Teams 

Play of the Slate: 

Minnesota Vikings v Pittsburgh Steelers

Pittsburgh Steelers @ ARI – $4,300

When choosing a defense, you typically want to target a team bringing pressure, and the Steelers do just that. The Steelers rank in the top three in sacks across the league. Meanwhile, the Cardinals rank in the top five in sacks allowed, so there is an excellent opportunity for the Steelers defense to capitalize in this matchup.

Other Top Plays at the Position: 

Kansas City Chiefs @ NE – $3,200

Indianapolis Colts @ TB – $4,000

Baltimore Ravens @ BUF – $4,200

Houston Texans vs. DEN – $4,600

Good luck and be sure to come back next week for the Fanduel DFS Week 15 edition!
