If you are not familiar with Fan Duel it is a daily game for fantasy football where you get to pick a different team each and every week. You are given 60K to pick a QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, TE, K, DF/ST. Here are some of the value picks for week 5:
Philip Rivers ($7,400)
Phil has been on a tear and his value still hasn’t caught up to his production. He may go off again this week and his value will continue to rise. Keep playing him until the value gets out of control.
Eli Manning ($6,600)
Eli has been a train wreck of epic proportions over the last 3 weeks. This week he has a defense that he should shred and is worth the price to see if he can make it happen.
Terrelle Pryor ($6,600)
Boom player that could go off against a defense the most points to opposing QBs. Definitely the best bargain on the board this week.
Eddie Lacy ($6,000)
Lacy is a little bit of a risk coming off of a concussion, but if he is all systems go, the Lions give up the 4th most points to opposing RBs.
David Wilson ($5,600)
Wilson is a pick that you need cajones for this week, but there is not another RB that can go off at this price.
LeGarrette Blount ($4,500)
Blount could be the starting RB for the Patriots this week and at this price, you won’t find someone that can get 20 plus touches.
Alshon Jeffery ($5,300)
Jeffery is really starting to gain a rapport with Jay Cutler and Cutty is finally realizing that he has more than just Marshall. Double digit points are certainly within range here.
Denarius Moore ($5,000)
Moore has shown good chemistry with Pryor and they will be able to exploit the Chargers secondary.
Jeremy Kerley ($4,800)
Kerley is the last man standing in the Jets WR corps and the Falcons allow the 4th most points to fantasy WRs.
Charles Clay ($4,500)
If you don’t go all in on Graham, you better be maximizing your money to go bid in other areas. Clay is super cheap and can get it done in this matchup.
Atlanta Falcons ($5,200)
The Falcons may have the best matchup on paper and are not priced accordingly. This is the best value for all the defenses.
