FanDuel Week 5 Bargain Buys

So, who are the players that you are targeting this week in FanDuel?  You want to start all great players, but cannot because of the salary cap?  This column is for you.  Here we will list a few players at each position that we consider “Bargain Buys.”  So, what defines a GM Fantasy Pros Bargain Buy?  We consider a bargain buy a player that has a great opportunity to perform at a higher level than what their salary cap reflects.  Let’s get started.

FanDuel Week 5 Bargain Buys


  • Ben Roethlisberger (PIT) – $8300
  • Colin Kaepernick (SF) – $7800
  • Mike Glennon (TB) – $6100

Big Ben is the one out of this bunch that seems most likely to perform very well.  Jacksonville has allowed the most passing yards in the NFL so far this season and Roethlisberger should feast on their secondary all day long.

Running Backs

  • Rashad Jennings (NYG) – $7200
  • Andre Ellington (ARI) – $6800
  • Bishop Sankey (TEN) – $5900

Rashad Jennings is going up against the Atlanta Falcons and they have allowed the third most rushing yards so far on the season.  Jennings is also coming off of a Thursday game last week meaning that he has been able to have a longer amount of rest and preparation.  He should be in for a great stat line.

Wide Receivers

  • Wes Welker (DEN) – $6900
  • Michael Floyd (ARI) – $6400
  • Allen Robinson (JAX) – $5000

Michael Floyd has all but taken over as the #1 wide receiver in Arizona.  Playing away at Denver means that in all likeliness Arizona will be playing from behind all day long.  Floyd should see a great share of catches and yards that accumulate throughout this game.

Tight Ends

  • Larry Donnell (NYG) – $6200
  • Vernon Davis (SF) – $6000
  • Greg Olson (CAR) – $5900

It is difficult to argue with Larry Donnell here coming off of his three TD performance against the Redskins.  This week he is taking on the Atlanta Falcons whose defense has been Swiss cheese throughout the first four games.  Add in the fact that he is clearly the red zone target for Eli, and it creates a great opportunity for success.

Kicker Quick Picks

  • Brandon McManus (DEN) – $5900
  • Cody Parkey (PHI) – $4900
  • Shaun Suisham (PIT) – $4800

Defense/ST Quick Picks

  • Denver Broncos – $5100
  • Houston Texans – $5000
  • Detroit Lions – $4800
