Let’s go Discount Diving for FanDuel once again. Sure, it is the PLAYOFFS in seasonal formats everywhere but not on FanDuel. Every Week is new and important in daily fantasy sports and this week is no exception. Plenty of fantastic match-ups, surprise injuries, and even worse game time decisions that will make setting lineups extra tricky this week.
That is why I am here, and hoping to help you find some cheap values while building a formidable cash winning lineup. I also need to apologize for life getting in the way last week which prevented me from writing up a post. I hope most of you also follow me on Twitter and saw my lineup posted on my feed. my discounted players of Isaiah Crowell, Joique Bell, Vikings DST, Charles Johnson and Kenny Britt allowed me to lock in Andrew Luck and T.Y. Hilton. This squad hauled in 145 points and cashed out in most leagues.
Again, so sorry you missed my post, and hopefully this weeks is just as helpful. This week I am going to post two lineups. One with more risk, and one that is more safe. Each will have discount diving players in them, but you can determine which way you want to go if you happen to duplicate my exact lineups. Good luck everyone in Daily and Seasonal. I know I will need it.
QuarterBack: Eli Manning, New York Giants vs Washington
Eli has found a new best friend and thankfully he is light years more exciting than Larry Donnell. He has thrown 9 touchdowns over the past 5 weeks and over 240 yards as well. Odell Beckham Jr is coming on strong and becoming one of the best rookie receivers this season. Eli is intriguing at $7,500 this week, but you throw in they’re facing one of the worst secondaries in Washington this week. He will be in some of my lineups for sure. Projected FanDuel Points: 16.7
Running Back: Isaiah Crowell, Cleveland Browns vs Cincinnati
Cincinnati has not been fantastic against the run this season, and they allow touchdowns to Running Backs this season. 15 to be exact, and since the Crow gets majority of the touches in the red-zone all signs point to him being a solid option this week. He is also relatively cheap at $6,500. He may be the only player in ever FanDuel lineup of mine this week. Splitting carries or not, he is by far the most talented back in Cleveland. Projected FanDuel Points: 11.2
Wide Receiver: Kenny Stills, New Orleans @ Chicago
Stills is a boom or bust player without a doubt, actually all New Orleans receivers tend to be, but they face the atrocious secondary of the Bears this weekend. Chicago has allowed the second most deep passes this season, and that is Stills strength so I am plugging in to my lineups with hopes of a few big plays, and hopefully a touchdown or two. Projected FanDuel Points: 11.4
Wide Receiver: Marquess Wilson, Chicago vs New Orleans
On the other side of the ball is my absolute favorite cheap play this week. He comes in at $4,500 and will be starting in place of Brandon Marshall. Although there is no way he will get the same amount of targets as Marshall, he will by default be a part of this offense so I have no problems plugging him in at this rock-bottom price tag and hope for the best. Projected FanDuel Points: 9.8
Week 15 bonus: Other targets on my list
Donte Moncrief $5,700
Latavius Murray $6,500
The Final Lineups……Well, Two of them
