Looking for some ways to save money on your Daily Fantasy Football team? We got you covered, here are the Top 5 Undervalued Players for week 3. Don’t use all of these guys, but snag a couple if you want to save money to load up in other positions.
5. Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB – New York Jets ($5500):
After two weeks of football, the price on most QBs has jumped a solid amount. Ryan Fitzpatrick is a guy that has had a couple of solid outings the last two weeks, but is one of the most affordable options out there. He has a fairly favorable matchup against Philly this week. He’s a solid, cheap option at the QB position.
4. Lance Dunbar, RB – Dallas Cowboys ($2600):
This one is a pretty big “hail mary,” but could pay off huge dividends for the price. Brandon Weeden will be under center for the Cowboys against Atlanta. Atlanta has allowed 199 receiving yards to RBs over the first two weeks, and Dunbar is the main receiving RB in Dallas. I’d expect a lot of checkdowns in this one, which could equate to big points.
3. Donte Moncrief, WR – Indianapolis Colts ($3300):
I am really not sure how Moncrief is still this cheap. I had him on my list last week, and he put up 7 catches for 122 yards and a TD. After that performance he’s actually even cheaper than he was last week, and he’s yet to put up less than 15 points so far this season. I’d look to add Moncrief on my squad again this week.
2. Charles Clay, TE – Buffalo Bills ($2900):
Charles Clay has always been a risky play, whether it be in daily fantasy or your season-long league, but going up against his old team this week could motivate him to go all-out. He’s one of the cheaper TE options out there, and he’s the clear No.1 option for Tyrod Taylor at the TE position. Risky play, but no guts… No glory.
1. Rishard Matthews, WR – Miami Dolphins ($2700):
Jarvis Landry is definitely Tannehill’s main option down in Miami, but Rishard Matthews has the potential to breakout this year. He’s seen at least 6 targets in each of the first two weeks, and going up against a tough Buffalo D that might target Jarvis Landry heavily this week could make for a perfect storm. He’s got in the endzone once, but he seems to catch every pass that comes his way which is great for PPR.
Last week’s results:
Cam Newton, QB – Carolina Panthers: 18 completions, 195 passing yards, 2 passing TDs, 76 rushing yards, 1 rushing TD.
Tevin Coleman, RB – Atlanta Falcons: 32 rushing yards, 1 rushing TD.
Vernon Davis, TE – San Francisco 49ers: 5 catches, 62 yards.
Donte Moncrief, WR – Indianapolis Colts: 7 catches, 122 yards, 1 TD.
Brandon Coleman, WR – New Orleans Saints: 3 catches, 33 yards.
