FanDuel Week 14 Bargain Buys

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.  That being said, we won’t be covering the top players at each position.  The players listed below should help fill in around some of the stars.  Let’s get started on FanDuel Week 14 Bargain Buys!

Quarterbacks

  • Matt Ryan (ATL)- $7900
  • Colin Kaepernick (SF) – $7200
  • Brian Hoyer – (CLE) – $6700

Why is Matt Ryan here at $7900?  Simple.  He should outperform his price.  Julio Jones has been slowly returning to form and this game should be a track meet.  Aaron Rodgers should carve up the ATL secondary so all odds are that Matt Ryan will be playing from behind nearly all game.  He is worth the gamble here.

Colin Kaepernick’s price tag continues to drop, and rightfully so as he has been underperforming for weeks.  The reality is that Oakland is flat bad right now and just got stomped by the Rams.  Kaep should have some good opportunity in this game to post a quality stat line.  He should be a pretty safe bet this week.

Josh Gordon has openly admitted that he is rusty and that he has been responsible for some of the interceptions that Hoyer has thrown in the last 2 weeks.  In addition, the Colts DST has been giving up over 250 yards per game through the air.  Add in the fact that Cleveland will likely be playing from behind all game and 6700 is quality for someone with the upside that Hoyer has this week.

Running Backs

  • Lamar Miller (MIA) – $6700
  • Steven Jackson (ATL) – $6600
  • Dan Herron (IND) – $6400

Baltimore is only giving up an average of 86 yards per game on the ground, however Lamar Miller is an all purpose back that also gets his yards through the air.  Baltimore DST is surprising poor at pass defense.  He should be someone that you should be able to fit into your lineup so that you can afford your higher tier players.

The packers have been terrible defending the run this season.  If Atlanta wants a shot at winning this game, they will need to control the clock and run the football effectively.  This could be one of the largest workloads that Jackson will see all season.  If the old man has enough left in his tank, it could be worthwhile to add him to your lineup.

Dan Herron is an interesting name this week with an interesting price.  Like Green Bay, Cleveland also has many issues in regard to trying to stop the running game.  The Colts clearly do not have much faith in Richardson.  I would expect that once this game gets out of hand (due in large part to Luck having a field day), that Herron will get his carries and could pop in a late TD.  He is certainly worth a flier.

Wide Receivers

  • DeAndre Hopkins (HOU) – $7500
  • Martavis Bryant (PIT) – $6600
  • Doug Baldwin (SEA) – $5500

Hopkins is a bit higher WR than we normally like to showcase on this list, but here is the reality:  The Jaguars are statistically the worst team in football at defending opposing team’s #1 WRs.  Having said that, we advise a bit of caution because “chasing last week’s numbers” is typically not a good thing in fantasy football.  His price however is still lower than it should be for the value.  Take advantage until FanDuel moves him up.

Bryant’s value has been dropping in recent weeks since he exploded earlier in the season.  His value at $6600 is now appealing again as he can be fit into most lineups.  Big Ben has been airing it out for weeks, and the risk with Bryant is minimal.  This should be a close game against the Bengals and we believe that Bryant should be a save bet for 70-80 and a TD.  He’ll be better than most that you’ll find around this price range.

Doug Baldwin is extremely good value, and this is the matchup that you have been waiting for.  The Eagles are giving up over 250 yards per game through the air.  They are also an explosive offense in their own right.  That means that there are many matchups that can be exploited in this game and that typically equates to a bulk of fantasy points.  Baldwin is risk/reward, but there are fewer risks that we would take at the WR position this week.

Tight Ends

  • Delanie Walker (TEN) – $5400
  • Travis Kelce (KC) – $5300
  • Kyle Rudolph (MIN) – $5200

The Giants are one of the worst teams in football with defending the TE position.  They are giving up over 7 passes per game to the TE spot and over 50 yards receiving.  Add in the fact that Walker is capable of catching some deep balls, and it makes him a decent gamble this week.

Arizona is another terrible team at defending opposing TE’s.  This is evident in the fact that they are also giving up many passes and yards to the TE position.  The real gamble here is that the KC offense runs through Charles.  There is always a lot of risk with Kelce, but if you need to save money at TE this week, Kelce is certainly an option.

Rudolph is the riskiest TE pick of the week in our selction, but the choices start to get slim.  If you can afford Walker or Kelce, we’d probably go that route.  Having said that, Rudoph has had multiple catches and 1 TD in his last 2 games.  He is still establishing rapport with Bridgewater, but against the Jets, there is always opportunity.

Kicker Quick Picks

  • Phil Dawson (SF) – $4800
  • Connor Barth (DEN) – $4700

FanDuel Week 12 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.  That being said, we won’t be covering the top players at each position.  The players listed below should help fill in around some of the stars.  Let’s get started on FanDuel Week 12 Bargain Buys!

Quarterbacks

  • Josh McCown (TB)- $7500
  • Colin Kaepernick (SF) – $7300
  • Brian Hoyer – (CLE) – $7000

Both the Bears and Buccaneers defenses are terrible against the pass.  The Bears are allowing over 250 yards per game through the air.  This game has all the billings of your typical shootout.  We are going to take McCown with rookie standout Evans in what should be one of the best QB bargain matchups of the week.

Kaepernick has a stellar matchup against the Redskins this week.  The Redskins are in disarray right now as an organization and the way that RG3 is playing, they don’t have the fire power to keep up with the 49er’s offense.  Kaepernick is a good buy at this price as he has one of the top QB matchups of the week.

Hoyer’s matchup is almost too go to be true.  Atlanta is the worst team in the league against the pass, and they are allowing over 280 yards per game through the air on the season.  This is not only a game that is one of the best QB matchups of the week, but it comes on the heels of the return of Josh Gordon.  His presence alone will open things up for Hoyer and the rest of the offense.  This is certainly a matchup to like.

Running Backs

  • Steven Jackson (ATL) – $6400
  • Ryan Mathews (SD) – $6400
  • Terrance West (CLE) – $6100 / Isaiah Crowell (CLE) – $5500

Let’s cut to the chase here.  Cleveland is ranked 30th in the league against the run.  If that alone isn’t enough to convince you of the value here, keep in mind that Antoine Smith is now done for the season eliminating an additional person to feed the football to.  Jackson should get plenty of opportunities to tote the rock, and he will need to in order to keep the Cleveland offense off of the field.

Ryan Mathews match-up is pretty good this week also as they play against the Rams who are allowing just over 110 yards per game on the ground.  The reason that Mathews is here is because he under performed in his first game back last week and he is still listed at a low dollar value.  He is an all-purpose back and should see plenty of opportunities to run and to catch the ball this week.  He should be a solid play.

Atlanta is nearly as bad against the run as they are against the pass.  They are giving up over 120 yards per game on the ground.  Cleveland has not listed which of their backs will get the start this week, but once they do, that back should be a solid play.  Both Crowell and West are a good value this week, however make sure that you find out which one will start before you set your final lineup.

Wide Receivers

  • Kenny Britt (STL) – $6400
  • Percy Harvin (NYJ) – $6400
  • Kenny Stills (NO) – $5900

San Diego is surprising bad against opposing #1 WR’s.  With Rivers banged up, they have kept their opponents in games and could do so again this week.  Britt is starting to come on in the absence of Brian Quick.  He is showcasing speed and an ability to be able to produce as an NFL #1 WR.  This week should provide him with an opportunity to showcase his skills, and for this price, he could easily be someone that could outperform this value.

This game will now be played on Monday night, and will be played indoors.  That will contribute to the speed and quickness of Percy Harvin.  Buffalo has a good DST and they are very stout against the run.  Vick however should be able to connect with Harvin and it wouldn’t surprise us to see him get behind the defense a couple of times.

Brandon Cooks is out for the season with a broken thumb.  Baltimore’s attention will certainly be on stopping TE Jimmy Graham.  This should really open things up for the speedy Stills.  Kenny is a very deep value play and at $5900, he has an excellent opportunity to outperform that price.

Tight Ends

  • Delanie Walker (TEN) – $5500
  • Coby Fleener (IND) – $5400
  • Austin Seferian-Jenkins (TB) – $5100

Delanie is probable this week and should be good to go week 12.  Philadelphia has been suspect against opposing tight ends on the season.  Philadelphia is also giving up over 250 yards per game through the air making this matchup very appealing.

Fleener is a great play this week.  Dwayne Allen and Ahmad Bradshaw both caught passes consistently from Andrew Luck.  What does that mean?  That means that those passes will have to go somewhere now that both of those players are out.  Sure some will go to Hilton and Wayne, but Fleener will be the primary tight end this week, and the primary beneficiary.

Seferian-Jenkins benefits heavily from his matchup this week.  He plays against a Bears DST that has been very suspect against the pass.  We are already highlighting McCown this week and there should be plenty of passes and yards to go around.

Kicker Quick Picks

  • Greg Zuerlein (STL) – $4900
  • Shayne Graham (NO) – $4700
  • Billy Cundiff (CLE) – $4500

Defense/ST Quick Picks

  • Louis Rams – $4800
  • Cleveland Browns – $4800
  • Tennessee Titans – $4500

FanDuel Week 11 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.  That being said, we won’t be covering the top players at each position.  The players listed below should help fill in around some of the stars.  Let’s get started on FanDuel Week 11 Bargain Buys!

Quarterbacks

  • Robert Griffen III (WAS)- $7400
  • Teddy Bridgewater (MIN) – $6600
  • Brian Hoyer – (CLE) – $6200

RG3 has the 2nd best matchup of any quarterback this week.  (Cam Newton has the best statistically)  Tampa Bay has been absolutely terrible against the pass as they are giving up over 277 yards per game through the air.  RG3 has a nice deep ball, and hopefully we will see him have a few more rushing yards in this game.  He should post a quality stat line in a game that features 2 less than desirable defensive units.

Teddy isn’t in this article because he is lighting the world on fire this season.  He is here because Chicago has been playing poor football, and Teddy is at a bargain price.  Chicago is giving up over 260 yards per game through the air and the Vikings will likely see the return of Kyle Rudolph to the passing game.

Cleveland has been playing some good ball in recent weeks and surprisingly Houston is giving up nearly 275 per game through the air.  With Clowney only to see a limited number of snaps, Hoyer should be able to get through the Texans DST effectively.  In addition, Andrew Hawkins is practicing this week, which means that Hoyer could have even more upside.

Running Backs

  • Jeremy Hill (CIN) – $6500
  • Shane Vereen (NE) – $6500
  • Ryan Mathews (SD) – $6200

Yes, I know that Hill dogged all of us last week.  This week could be different however as he has earned another start with Bernard likely out again.  On the surface, New Orleans looks like a bad matchup, but the reality is this:  They are giving up over 100 yards per game on the ground.  In addition, opposing running backs are averaging 7 catches for over 45 yards receiving per game.  That bodes well from a FanDuel perspective and at $6500, Hill projects out as a great bargain.

Shane Vereen is also a bargain price this week.  While the Colts DST doesn’t give up quite 100 yards per game, what they do is provide a great receiving game for opposing backs.  The Colts DST is giving up 6+ catches for over 55 yards per game to opposing backs.  This is a matchup that I would expect the Patriots to exploit.  The combination of rushing and receiving could make Vereen a great play at this price.

San Diego has openly said that Ryan Mathews is expected to only see around 15 carries this game.  The good thing for Mathews is that 15 carries should be enough as Oakland is giving up over 130 yards per game on the ground.  This also doesn’t account for the receiving part of Mathew’s game.  At $6200, there may not be a better play.

Wide Receivers

  • Kelvin Benjamin (ATL) – $6600
  • Vincent Jackson (TB) – $6500
  • Pierre Garcon (WAS) – $6500

I’d image that Benjamin is here because of how poorly Newton has been playing.  Having said that, he still shouldn’t be this cheap.  He scored twice last week in a terrible game for the Panthers.  This week they take on the Atlanta Falcons who are not only giving up over 280 yards per game through the air (the worst in the league), they are also giving up great points to opposing #1 WR’s.

The Redskins are only giving up about 220 yards per game through the air, so why is Vincent here?  He is here because the Skins are giving up nearly 7 catches for 70 yards per game against opposing #2 WR’s.  The way Evans has been playing, he should gather more attention which should also open things up for Jackson.

As bad as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are at pass defense, I’d expect Garcon to get in on the action as well this week.  There should be more than enough yardage to go around.  If that isn’t enough, the Bucs are also giving up over 5 passes per game to opposing #2 WR’s.  Garcon is certainly risk/reward, but the opportunity for some catches and a score is there for him.

Tight Ends

  • Dwayne Allen (IND) – $6100
  • Mychal Rivera (OAK) – $5800
  • Vernon Davis (SF) – $5300

In my opinion, Allen is a steal at $6100 this week.  New England is giving up an average of 8 passes per game for over 60 yards to the tight end position.  Add that to the way that Luck has played this season and the fact that Allen is a red zone threat and you have a recipe for success.

We were right on Rivera last week and hopefully it paid off for someone out there.  This week I expect another quality stat line.  He has the 4th best tight end matchup of the week.  San Diego has been unusually suspect against the passing game as of late.  I also expect San Diego to be ahead for a large part of this game which should lead to a passing day for Derek Carr.

Does Vernon ever come through?  Here is the unfortunate truth for all of us:  Yes, but you’ll never know when it will happen.  That alone makes Davis a tough prediction.  The thing that he does have going for him this week however is that he has the best TE matchup of the week against the Giants.  The Giants are giving up over 7 passes for 65 yards per game to the tight end position.  If there is any week that Vernon should be able to produce, this would be the week.

FanDuel Week 10 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.  That being said, we won’t be covering the top players at each position.  The players listed below should help fill in around some of the stars.  Let’s get started on FanDuel Week 10 Bargain Buys!

Quarterbacks

  • Matt Ryan (ATL)- $7800
  • Colin Kaepernick – (SF) – $7500
  • Mark Sanchez – (PHI) – $6600

Tampa is allowing 285 yards per game through the air which is a ton!  The last time that the Falcons played against the Bucs, it was a shoot out!  $7800 is way too low of a price for Ryan.  This is a great match-up, and he should put up some good numbers.

Colin has been unimpressive in his last 2 match-ups.  This week he will need to keep up with Brees and the Saints offense.  He should also add some yards on the ground.  This is an important game on the road that the 49ers need to win.

I have never really been a fan of “Mr. Butt Fumble.”  Having said that however, his price tag is low and the Eagles have a ton of weapons.  They will certainly give him every opportunity to succeed.  He is worth the risk.

Running Backs

  • Denard Robinson (JAX) – $6800
  • Bobby Rainey (TB) – $6700
  • Steven Jackson (ATL) – $6300

For anyone that hasn’t noticed, Denard Robinson has been on fire the last 3 weeks.  He is getting around 20 carries per game, and Dallas is giving up over 100 yards per game on the ground.  Robinson is one of the few bright spots right now for the Jags, and I would expect him to continue to get the rock.

Rainey is the primary ball carrier (for now) and the game against Atlanta looks like a game that will lack defense.  He should get plenty of work and would expect him to be an above average play.

As for Steven Jackson, see the same thing that I said above for Rainey.  He is worth the risk in a game that should be a track meet.  Both of these DST’s are terrible and I would think that we could see a pretty crazy game.

Wide Receivers

  • Julio Jones (ATL) – $8000
  • Mike Evans (TB) – $6600
  • Martavis Bryant (PIT) – $6100
  • Kenny Britt (STL) – $5500

Just a quick note on Julio here.  I don’t typically highlight players of his caliber, but at $8000 I need to say that with his matchup against the Bucs, that he is waaaaaaaay to cheap!  Get him!

Atlanta’s DST is nearly as bad as the Buccaneers.  Evans has emerged as the #1 option ahead of Vincent Jackson.  He is finally starting to get some credit as he has moved up to $6600.  He should still be higher.  Start him with confidence.

Martavis has been awesome over the last 3 weeks and Big Ben has been on fire.  Sure they could both cool a bit, but let’s be honest…..  These are the NY Jets.  They have been an accident waiting to happen.  At $6100, he is a lot better than others around that price range.

Arizona is giving up the most yards in the air of any team in the league right now.  Britt has assumed the top WR role.  On the other side, Palmer should put up his share of points.  Davis will need to do the same, and I would think he would look to Kenny to make that happen.

Tight Ends

  • Mychal Rivera (OAK) – $5700
  • Owen Daniels (BAL) – $5400
  • Zack Ertz (PHI) – $5100

Rivera is someone who hasn’t come along until recently, and he has been relatively unknown.  The reality however is this:  He has 15 receptions in the last 2 games and will be playing against a Broncos DST that plays with a lead nearly all of the time.  In addition to that, Denver is giving up over 250 yards per game through the air.

I’m not a huge fan of the match-up for Daniels, but he gets the targets and the receptions.  With focus now on Steve Smith, it opens up Daniels down the seam.  He is also a great red zone target.  Great price at $5400.

Ertz is someone who could benefit now that Sanchez will be under center.  Even as bad as Sanchez was with the Jets, he still was able to help his TE’s be someone fantasy relevant.  If he relies on Ertz in that same fashion, it could pay dividends on prime time.

Kicker Quick Picks

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.  That being said, we won’t be covering the top players at each position.  The players listed below should help fill in around some of the stars.  Let’s get started on FanDuel Week 9 Bargain Buys

Quarterbacks

  • Colin Kaepernick (SF)- $7800
  • Ryan Fitzpatrick – (HOU) – $6400
  • Brian Hoyer – (CLE) – $6200

Kaepernick passed for nearly 350 yards, had a slew of rushing yards, and accumulated 3 total touchdowns in his last meeting with the Rams.  At $7800 he is the highest cap player we have here, but he still has a great shot to outperform that dollar.

Philadelphia has been shredded through the air this year and they are allowing the 7th most passing yards per game.  At $6400 for “The Beard”, it is difficult to ask for a better matchup.  This game could be a track meet and Fitzpatrick could really help you get some studs in your lineup.

The only thing worse than Tampa Bay’s pass defense this season is the fact that they are giving up an average of over 30 points per game.  Sure, Hoyer is no Peyton Manning, but at this point, just about anyone has been able to throw the ball on Tampa.  He is a riskier start than the other QB’s on our list, but the rewards could be immense if he delivers.

Running Backs

  • Ben Tate (CLE) – $6900
  • Bobby Rainey (TB) – $6200
  • Jeremy Hill (CIN) – $5200

Curious as to why Ben Tate is here?  You shouldn’t be considering what we just said about the Bucs for Hoyer.  In addition to the points per game that they are giving up, and all of the passing yards, believe it or not, they are still giving up over 120 yards per game on the ground.  Their defense has been flat bad, and Tate should be licking his chops.

It honestly pains me to put Rainey on this list from the standpoint that I don’t like to highlight 2 backs in the same game.  The reality however is as bad as Tampa is at defending the run, Cleveland is actually worse.  They are giving up over 140 yards per game on the ground, and Martin looks like he will be held out of the game again.

Jeremy Hill has looked great on weeks in which he has shared time with Bernard.  This week Bernard has been sidelined and Hill will more than likely be owned in the majority of leagues.  At $5200, it is difficult to argue that fact.  The Bengals take on the Jaguars this week and with AJ probably coming back off of injury, I would expect the Bengals to lean on their running game.

Wide Receivers

  • Odell Beckham Jr. (NYG) – $6600
  • Wes Welker (DEN) – $63 00
  • Kenny Britt (STL) – $5300

Beckham Jr. has 16 targets, 10 catches, and 3 touchdowns over the course of his last 3 games.  If that doesn’t sway you enough, the Giants are playing on primetime against the Colts who can put up points in bunches.  I would expect that Beckham Jr. should be heavily involved this week.

Welker missed the first part of the season and he has underwhelmed ever since.  He has become almost an afterthought of the Denver passing game.  So why is he here?  The reality is this…  He catches passes from Peyton Manning, he is playing against his former team in the New England Patriots, and this game could turn into a track meet.  That is really all that is needed to play Welker at this price.

Kenny Britt is our true risk/reward type of player.  I’ve been a critic of Kenny Britt for years.  This week his team needs him and he has been a player that has delivered on occasion.  Brian Quick is out for the year and Britt moves into the #1 receiver role for a game that they need against a 49ers DST that has underperformed recently.

Tight Ends

  • Vernon Davis (SF) – $5700
  • Jordan Reed (WAS) – $5500
  • Zack Ertz (PHI) – $5400

This is the 3rd week now that I’ve had Vernon on this list.  I stand by what I said 2 weeks ago when I stated that you don’t want to miss out on his high week.  St. Louis got shredded by Brandon Lloyd last meeting.  If you can afford a top notch TE, this is the probably the week that I would take one.  Having said that, Vernon has a good shot to outperform $5700.

Jordan Reed has been getting targets since his return and the Vikings DST is suspect.  It is difficult however to predict what will occur in RG3’s return to action.  Reed is high risk, but he is capable of getting downfield which adds to his big play ability.

Houston is giving up 4th most passing yards per game as they are allowing over 270 passing yards per game.  $5400 is a low price for the points that could be had from Ertz in this matchup.  As I stated with Vernon however, this could be the week to take a top notch tight end as some of the other “Bargain Buy” positions I would consider to be of a larger bargain than the TE position this week.

Kicker Quick Picks

  • Cody Parkey (PHI) – $5000
  • Chandler Catanzaro (ARI) – $4900
  • Nick Novak (SD) – $4700

Defense/ST Quick Picks

  • Arizona Cardinals – $5100
  • Houston Texans – $4800
  • Cleveland Browns – $4800

FanDuel Week 8 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.  That being said, we won’t be covering the top players at each position.  The players listed below should help fill in around some of the stars.  Let’s get started on FanDuel Week 8 Bargain Buys!

Quarterbacks

  • Ben Roethlisberger – (PIT) – $7500
  • Carson Palmer (ARI)- $7400
  • Mike Glennon – (TB) – $6800

Big Ben is an interesting selection here as a “Bargain Buy” because Indianapolis is only giving up an average of 214 passing yards per game.  The real truth behind this selection however is that the Steelers DST is very suspect and Andrew Luck should have a field day.  Big Ben will need to keep up and that should result in some above average numbers.

Arizona is at home and the Eagles DST are giving up over 250 passing yards per game.  The fun fact here is that Arizona DST is giving up over 280 passing yards per game.  This has all of the billings of a typical shootout.  Palmer is a great buy at this price and he has a great opportunity to far outperform his value at $7400.

Mike Glennon is also a cheap buy at $6800 and that should allow you to put some studs in your lineup.  With Orton throwing for over 200 yards and 2 TD’s last week against the Vikings DST, Glennon should be able to provide a similar stat line.  As long as your expectations are not Peyton Manning, you should be alright starting Glennon at home this week.

Running Backs

  • Ahmad Bradshaw (IND) – $7000
  • Mark Ingram (NO) – $6100
  • Jerick McKinnon (MIN) – $5800

Bradshaw has been a difference maker and a receiving threat for Andrew Luck so far this season.  Add in the fact that Trent Richardson has been missing practice all week and you have a stellar recipe for Bradshaw.  At $7000, adding Bradshaw to your lineup very well could be the best decision of the FanDuel weekend.

Ingram is back!  Wait, was Ingram actually ever good?  He is no Murray, however, teams have been able to run on the Packers this season as they are giving up nearly 150/yards per game on the ground.  New Orleans needs to try to play keep away from Rodgers, and with Thomas out and Robinson banged up, Ingram will play a huge role for them this week.

Tampa bay has been giving up over 125 yards per game on the ground and the Vikings have been increasing McKinnon’s workload as of late.  Another thing to keep in mind here is that FanDuel is a PPR and McKinnon is also involved in the Vikings passing game.  With a lack of available playmakers, the Vikings may need to get McKinnon involved early and often.  If that occurs, expect a quality stat line, especially at this dollar.

Wide Receivers

  • Terrance Williams (DAL) – $6800
  • Brandon Cooks – (NO) – $6400
  • Mike Evans – (TB) – $5900

Williams is on the list because he has done nothing but performed week after week.  The other reality is that defenses have to focus on Murray and Dez Bryant.  Dallas has also made repeated comments about decreasing Murray’s workload. (If he maintains his current pace, he will set the NFL record for carries in a season)  If Dallas is worried about keeping Murray upright, more targets should be available in the passing game and that will only help Williams.

Brandon Cooks is at home and playing with a gimpy Jimmy Graham.  Add in the fact that the Saints are 18-0 at home with both Drew Brees and Sean Payton together.  Enough Said, Cooks could be a nice play.

Mike Evans is coming off of an injury and getting re-incorporated into the offense while Vincent Jackson is still nursing an injury.  He is a large body WR who sees a good amount of targets.  In addition he is a red zone threat for Glennon.  Evans could easily end up being the receiver that does the most damage against the Vikings this Sunday.

Tight Ends

  • Delanie Walker (TEN) – $5600
  • Zach Ertz (PHI) – $5400
  • Jordan Reed (WAS) – $5200

Delanie Walker has been in the dumps for a few weeks now and he is a risky pick.  However with a new QB and a rookie at that, Walker more than likely will be the security blanket.  Mettenberger has a strong arm and he received rave reviews around draft time.  He is a rookie and will have his pains, but Walker should prove to be a reliable target to throw to.

Arizona has been terrible against the tight end position all year long.  Patrick Peterson should shadow Maclin all day and that should open things up to Ertz to do some damage.  He seems likely to have a good shot at 70-90 yards receiving with a score.

Jordan Reed has missed a ton of time this season and is just getting re-acquainted with the offense.  Colt McCoy is likely going to be the starter, but there is an outside shot that RG3 plays in this game.  Either way, Reed is a quality target and should receive plenty of looks.

Kicker Quick Picks

  • Dan Carpenter (BUF) – $4900
  • Billy Cundiff (CLE) – $4800
  • Randy Bullock (HOU) – $4700

FanDuel Week 7 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.  That being said, we won’t be covering the top players at each position.  The players listed below should help fill in around some of the stars.  Let’s get started on FanDuel Week 7 Bargain Buys.

Quarterbacks

  • Colin Kaepernick (SF)- $7800
  • Joe Flacco – (BAL) – $7700
  • Carson Palmer – (ARI) – $7300

Against Denver, the 49ers are going to need to keep the pressure on.  Kaepernick has been outperforming his salary recently in FanDuel including last week posting nearly 30 points in a primetime matchup.  This again is a primetime game on Sunday night and Colin shouldn’t disappoint.

Flacco absolutely destroyed Tampa Bay last week with 5 early touchdowns.  I’m not saying that he is going to replicate that performance, however Atlanta is allowing an average of 278 pass yards per game.  This game should be a solid performance for Flacco against a subpar defense.

So, what did Carson Palmer do in his first game back from injury?  Not much, just attempted 44 passes for over 250 yards and 2 touchdowns.  Oakland is a middle of the road defense and I would expect that Palmer is well worth the cap at $7300.

Running Backs

  • Ahmad Bradshaw (IND) – $6600
  • Justin Forsett (BAL) – $6200
  • Storm Johnson (JAX) – $5400

Bradshaw will be part of a game that could turn into a high scoring affair.  Both the Colts and Bengals have high powered offenses capable of putting points on the board in bunches.  At $6600, and with being Luck’s safety net out of the backfield, Bradshaw could be in line for some decent stats.

Justin Forsett is here for a similar reason as Flacco.  The Falcons defense has been terrible on the season and in addition to the passing yards per game that they are allowing, they are also giving up over 140 yards per game on the ground.  Forsett catches passes and he is the current choice out of the crowded Raven’s backfield.

Storm Johnson is an interesting choice here as he did not have a great yards per carry last week.  The reality however is that the Jaguars had him on a carry count.  He only received 10 carries and still managed to pop in a touchdown.  This week they face the Browns who are giving up nearly 150 yards per game rushing.  If Storm is going to make a fantasy impact and show why he should earn the job, we should see that performance this week.

Wide Receivers

  • Sammy Watkins (BUF) – $6400
  • Malcom Floyd (SD) – $5800
  • Marques Colston (NO) – $5500

The Vikings are not giving up an abundance of passing yards per game, however Watkins is a bargain at this price and he is a playmaker.  He gets an abundance of targets and should play a factor in a game that will be played on his home field.

Floyd is the deep threat in San Diego right now.  He is pulling targets away from Allen and should continue to do so this week against the Chiefs.  Eddie Royal left last week with an injury and Floyd will capitalize if Royal cannot go on Sunday.

Colston is on this list because Brees needs to throw to someone and there is no indication at this point that Jimmy Graham is going to be playing in this game.  Although Colston’s cap is extremely appealing, there is some high risk with this pick as Detroit bolsters one of the best pass defenses in football to this point.  We like Colston as someone to see a good share of targets, but a bit of caution is advised.

Tight Ends

  • Dwayne Allen (IND) – $5700
  • Vernon Davis (SF) – $5700
  • Larry Donnell (NYG) – $5500

We were off on Dwayne Allen last week, but we are going to try him again this week against the Bengals.  Last week he had 3 catches for 49 yards.  He did however have 7 targets and that was in a game where Hilton dominated.  He should be well targeted again this week and the way Luck is playing, it is a good idea to have a piece of the Colts.

Vernon is at a great cap here at $5500 and this should be a fun matchup to watch in primetime against Denver.  Last week both Crabtree and Lloyd scored.  This offense has a lot of weapons and it will be nothing more than a matter of time before Vernon gets his due.  Don’t miss out on it when it occurs.

Larry Donnell along with the rest of the Giants had a terrible game last week against the Eagles.  This week could be a bit scary also with the way the Cowboys are playing and how they dominated Seattle.  Having said that however we believe that Giants will make enough adjustments to make this a better offensive showing.  If there is a Giant that we are willing to gamble on, it is Donnell as he is clearly the red zone target for Eli.  With Cruz out, it only amplifies his worth.

Kicker Quick Picks

  • Dan Carpenter (BUF) – $5000
  • Nick Novak (SD) – $5000
  • Cairo Santos (KC) – $4500

Defense/ST Quick Picks

  • Houston Texans – $5100
  • Buffalo Bills – $5000
  • Dallas Cowboys – $4600
