Welcome gamblers to another section geared towards winning the big $$$ on Fanduel. Taking a different approach this week by going with two high priced running backs vs. looking for the bargain backs with high volume potential. This may hurt my wide receiver selections, but I couldn't pass up on the running back matchups. Good luck to you all!
QB – Drew Brees, NO ($9,400): Brees should be up for a huge performance at home this week going up against a Carolina defense that averages 2 touchdowns allowed through the air per game. Expect Brees to top that average in what looks to be a high scoring affair.
RB – Arian Foster, HOU ($8,700): Foster is healthy coming into this dream matchup so I can't pass up on this one. Jacksonville gives up 129.4 rushing yards per game and at least 1 touchdown per game. Foster should hit those numbers on the ground and add to them since he is involved in the passing game as well.
RB – Eddie Lacy, GB ($8,500): Taking another high ticket RB this week since Lacy has a great matchup against a Falcons defense giving up 118.3 yards per game on the ground. As we start getting into more cold weather games expect the Packers to lean more on the ground game vs. their norm of airing the ball out.
WR – Kenny Stills, NO ($6,400): Great price for someone who has stepped up to be the number 1 receiving option for the Saints. I love pairing my quarterback with one of their receiving options for Fanduel tournaments as well.
WR – Robert Woods, BUF ($5,900): Should be a decent play for the price as Buffalo will inevitably need to be throwing for touchdowns to keep up or catch up to the Broncos. Throw in Orton returning to Denver where he had success and Sammy Watkins being banged up adds some more incentive.
WR – James Jones, OAK ($5,400): Breaking a rule of never playing anyone from Oakland, but going high on other positions this week makes the receiver selections limited. Strictly went off of who has been averaging the most fantasy points in this price range for this selection.
TE – Antonio Gates, SD ($5,600): New England has been shutting down opposing teams outside receivers but tight ends and slot receivers have had success. This game has potential for high scoring and if it does expect Gates to be involved in that.
K – Phil Dawson, SF ($4,800): Looked to be the best priced kicker not playing in a cold weather location. Oakland also gives up the 5th most fantasy points to opposing kickers.
DEF – Houston Texans ($5,300): I love playing any defense against the Jaguars and especially love playing an elite fantasy defense against them. Good chance for some touchdowns coming here.
