It’s almost fantasy playoff time and whether you are in it or not, I have good news! DFS play doesn’t care about the rest of your season. So to try to make up for the money you may have lost over the season or to add on to what you might have already won. Here are my picks for the week coming with some value plays.
Brett Hundley vs Tamps Bay Buccaneers: Price $5100
Tampa Bay have not got a good defense, especially against the pass. This combined with looking on Hundley’s perfomance last week against a formidable Steelers defense, should give him a nice opportunity to succeed especially at a great salary saving price
Tyrod Taylor vs New England: Price $5400
Tyrod’s stats haven’t been gaudy this year or eye opening but when you mix his solid passing numbers and running ability he becomes a good fantasy option. Matching that against a high scoring Patriots offense and bad defense he has the opportunity for a huge game in a potential shoot-out scenario.
Josh McCown vs Kansas City: Price $5500
Case Keenum @ Atlanta Falcons: Price $6000
Jamal Williiams vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Price $4700
Sticking with the theme of a bad Bucs defense, as of now Jamal Williams is the only threat the Packers have in the run game. If they’re able to move the ball like we expect them too, he should get a few red zone chances to put a TD on the board.
Tarik Cohen vs San Francisco: Price $3700
Cohen has been quiet as of late after making a big splash to start the season. The 49ers defense can make anyone look good especially with dump offs to the backs. This is the type of matchup that should allow Cohen to put some points on the board and at only $3700, this then gives you the opportunity to load up on star players around him.
J.D. McKissic vs Philadelphia Eagles: Price $3900
Orleans Dawkwa @ Oakland Raiders: Price $4600
Corey Coleman @ Los Angeles Chargers: Price $4300
The hype train for Josh Gordon has been off the rails this week. Hue Jackson is talking about how he wants to get him involved and have him be a huge part of the offense. While all of this is happening everyone is forgetting about the best receiver the Browns currently have and that’s Corey Coleman. He’s a big play waiting to happen and he has been consistent when on the field this season. Take advantage of his low price while you can.
Dede Westbrook vs Indianapolis Colts: Price $4100
Dede Westbrook has been getting more and more involved every week in the offense since returning from injury and you can see flashes of his talent and speed. A match-up against the Colts is the perfect recipe for a breakout game for the Jags’ preseason superstar.
Paul Richardson vs Philadelphia Eagles: Price $4600
Sammy Watkins @ Arizona Cardinals: Price $5200
Hunter Henry vs Cleveland Browns: Price $4700
Hunter Henry is not an extremely low price for a tight end. Yet his talent mixed with the amount of points Cleveland gives up to tight ends is a match made in heaven. This could be the overall number one tight end this week and is only the 10th most expensive tight end.
Julius Thomas vs Denver Broncos: Price $3500
Julius Thomas has been a fairly consistent of late with a pretty decent floor. The match-up is good this week with the Broncos being the second worse team giving up fantasy points to opposing tight ends.
Eric Ebron@ Baltimore Ravens: Price $3000
Charles Clay vs New England: Price $4100
Detroit Lions @Baltimore Ravens: Price $3000
The Ravens offense is one of the worst in the league and prone to turnovers. Detroit has been fairly opportunistic all season so with a good chance of interceptions meaning they have a ton of upside in this match-up.
San Francisco 49ers @ Chicago: Price $2600
Chicago has limited weapons on offense and are fairly low scoring. If you are bargain hunting this could be one of the best options to face an offense of that caliber at a ridiculously low price giving you room to work with your roster.
