Finding the value plays for daily fantasy football is critical for building a winning lineup. Players that will reach value are the key to scoring enough points to reach the money. Finding these low to mid salary guys will allow you afford the high priced players. Often times to win money in a large gpp it requires you play players that are not highly owned amongst the field. Since Fanduel does not allow for late swaps, team’s lineups are visible Thursday night for the entire weekend. I prefer to play in mostly Sunday only slates, but I will play at least one week long slate gpp because it gives me a feel of what players will be highly owned on Sundays. Below are some of this week’s players that stand out.
Matthew Stafford – (8600) I think he is due for a bounce back week. I suspect his ownership may be low due to the fact he burned so many last week.
Blake Bortles – (6500) At this price he should easily be able to reach value. They will be playing from behind most of the games which should give him plenty of opportunity to throw the ball.
Donald Brown – (6300) The opposite applies to the Chargers. They should have the luxury of being able to run the ball most of the game. With Danny Woodhead and Mathews out, Brown is the lone RB to feed the ball to once they get the lead over Jax.
Lamar Miller – (6900) Received most of the touches last week, and has a plus matchup this week against Oakland.
Antonio Brown – (8400) He has been very consistent, and has a very good match-up against Tampa Bay this week. He is a must start in cash games.
