5 Undervalued Players in Weekly Fantasy Football – Week 9

Trying to build the optimal line-up in weekly fantasy this week?  We got some players that can help you do just that.  There’s also details on how to win $10 playing daily fantasy at the bottom of the article.

Check out this week’s 5 undervalued players on FantasyScore:

Jameis Winston, QB – Tampa Bay Buccaneers ($6300)


Jameis and the Bucs are going up against the New York G-Men this week, and while he hasn’t played incredibly well, this could be the week he turns it on.  The Giants will be without several key pieces on defense including cornerback Prince Amukamara.  There’s a good chance they’ll also be playing from behind, so Jameis should be forced to throw the ball a lot.

Jeremy Langford, RB – Chicago Bears ($5000)


He might not be Matt Forte, but he’ll be getting Forte’s regular workload this week.  Jeremy Langford has a rare golden opportunity on Monday night against a San Diego defense that struggles against the run.  He has RB1 potential for the price of a low-end RB2.  Langford could definitely be this week’s lottery ticket.

Dontrelle Inman, WR – San Diego Chargers ($2800)


Philip Rivers has been playing Super Saiyan so far this year, not to mention he just lost his favorite WR.  That means it’s between Stevie Johnson, Malcolm Floyd, and Dontrelle Inman to take the torch.  My money’s on Dontrelle Inman.  In the two weeks that Keenan Allen missed last year, Inman averaged 6 catches for 79 yards a game.  He also averaged 8.5 targets in each of those games.  Rivers seems to trust him a lot, and I’d expect him to emerge as the new No.1 option for the Chargers.

Benjamin Watson, TE – New Orleans Saints ($4600)


Watson has been straight killin’ it and he still is one of the lower end TEs as far as cost goes.  Drew Brees has definitely shaken off all the cobwebs from the offseason and will be looking to continue his solid play against the Titans this week.  Save a bit of money at the TE position and roll the dice on Watson once again.

Chris Thompson, RB – Washington Redskins ($2900)

There shouldn’t be any doubt that the Redskins will be playing from behind this week.  In comes the Redskins’ passing down back, Chris Thompson.  They should have to throw often, and they’ll have to get the ball out quick against New England’s tough defense.  That means we should see a good number of check-downs to Mr. Chris.  He’s a great flex play to save some money this week.

5 Undervalued Players for Weekly Fantasy Football – Week 7

I’m sorry if you had to wander through last week’s Fantasy Football challenge without my guiding voice…  But no fear.  I’m back this week.  Here are 5 undervalued players on FantasyScore for week 7:

Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB – New York Jets ($5700):


Ryan Fitzpatrick is fairly affordable this week.  Part of the reason being that he’s going up against a pretty stout New England defense, but my guess is they get in a hole early on and Fitzpatrick is forced to throw the ball the rest of the game.  It could definitely lead to some decent numbers for Fitzy even if they end up losing.

C.J. Spiller, RB – New Orleans Saints ($3800):


Man, oh man.  When is C.J. Spiller going to see some more touches?  The Saints have been continually saying they want to get him the ball more.  I’d be willing to spend the $3800 on him in Weekly Fantasy to find out if this is the week.  This is possibly the biggest gamble on this list, but sometimes you have to roll the dice.

Christine Michael, RB – Dallas Cowboys ($3600):


Welp, this is the week we finally find out if the Cowboys are going to let Michael get a decent workload.  He’s only seen two carries so far this season, and there’s no guarantee he’ll be the main guy this week.  He’s another gamble, but his talent and potential opportunity to take the lead spot are very appetizing.

Stefon Diggs, WR – Minnesota Vikings ($3000):


Are you Diggs-ing Stefon Diggs yet?  Well, all corny jokes aside, you should be.  He’s turning into the number one receiving option in Minnesota alongside Mike Wallace.  He has also seen a huge number of targets (19) over the past two weeks.  Invest some cheap stock into Stefon Diggs to leave extra capital in the big name guys.

Landry Jones, QB – Pittsburgh Steelers ($4600):


All signs are pointing to Landry Jones getting the start for Pittsburgh this week.  The second-year QB came into last week’s game and performed quite well against a solid Arizona defense.  This week he goes up against a KC defense that gives up the 3rd most fantasy points to QBs so far this season.  I like Landry a lot if he ends up getting the start.

5 Undervalued Players in Daily Fantasy Football

Looking to save some cap space on your Daily Fantasy Football squad?  Check out these undervalued players that could provide big numbers without using up your bankroll.

5. Blake Bortles, QB – Jacksonville Jaguars ($5000):


This week, Blake Bortles is basically the cheapest viable option at QB.  I’m not just picking him because his low price, but because I can see this game against Tampa Bay featuring a lot of throws from both teams.  There might be a couple turnovers on each side, but expect Bortles to end the day with some solid numbers.

4. Chris Thompson, RB – Washington Redskins ($2600):


The last RB I recommended that was going up against Atlanta: Lance Dunbar.  Want to know how he did?  Just 10 catches for 100 yards plus some work in the ground game.  Receiving backs have tore it up against the Falcons this season.  Thompson is the clear receiving back for Washington, and he’s very cheap on Daily Fantasy right now.

3. Rueben Randle, WR – New York Giants ($3800):


Something about Rueben Randle I like this week.  Some people rely on all kinds of crazy statistics and analytical reasons, but it’s just something in my gut this week with Randle.  San Francisco has not been that great, and as long as Victor Cruz remains out, Randle will have a spot in this offense.

2. Richard Rodgers, TE – Green Bay Packers ($3800):


There’s not too many attractive TEs out there this week that are in the more affordable price range.  No, I don’t mean attractive as in good-looking.  Richard Rodgers seems to have found a solid chemistry with ARod, and is coming off a solid game last week.  I can see him repeating last week’s performance if not out-doing it.

1. Allen Hurns, WR – Jacksonville Jaguars ($2600):


Why is Allen Hurns so cheap?  I know he’s dealing with a tweaked ankle, but he should still suit up and play.  Hurns and Bortles definitely seem to have a good thing going, so I’d even look to double stack and play both Bortles and Hurns in your lineup.

Stats for last week’s picks:

Kirk Cousins, QB – Washington Redskins: 290 passing yards, 1 passing TD, 1 rushing TD

Thomas Rawls, RB – Seattle Seahawks: 48 rushing yards

Leonard Hankerson, WR – Atlanta Falcons: 6 catches, 103 receiving yards, 1 TD

Gary Barnidge, TE – Cleveland Browns: 6 catches, 75 yards, 1 TD

Karlos Williams, RB – Buffalo Bills: 40 rushing yards, 3 catches, 30 receiving yards, 1 TD

5 Undervalued Players for Daily Fantasy Football – Week 4

Let’s take a look at the best bargain players for week 4 daily fantasy football on FantasyScore.  If you’re needing to save some money to get your favorite elite players, here’s the guys you can use to do it:

Kirk Cousins, QB – Washington Redskins ($5400):

Now that the NFL season is several weeks underway, it’s hard to find a bargain on a QB in Daily Fantasy Football.  Kirk Cousins is a great, affordable option this week going up against an Eagles D that is rather soft.  Not to mention that Washington’s D isn’t all that great, so this could end up in a shootout.


Thomas Rawls, RB – Seattle Seahawks ($4000):

The latest update on Marshawn Lynch is that he has a 50/50 chance of playing this week.  If he sits, I would recommend throwing Thomas Rawls in one of your RB spots.  It’s a Monday night game, so it might be hard to wait and see if Lynch is going to play or not.  There’s some risk in this one for sure, but….  No risk, no reward.

Leonard Hankerson, WR – Atlanta Falcons ($2200):

Hankerson has seemed to overtaken Roddy White as the No.2 WR in Atlanta.  Hankerson always showed solid skills during his time in Washington, so now that he’s on a team with a near-elite QB, he should be able to do some real damage.  Not to mention that he’s only $2200.  JEEZ that’s cheap.  This is a solid “hail mary” play to save money for elite players.


Gary Barnidge, TE – Cleveland Browns ($2500):

The TE spot seems like a crapshoot every week unless you’re rolling with Gronk.  Why not take a really big gamble on a player that could pay huge dividends and save some money while doing so?  Gary Barnidge showed solid chemistry with QB Josh McCown last week, and playing against a middle-of-the-pack Defense in San Diego could help him repeat his week 3 stat line of 6 Catches/105 Yards/1 TD.


Karlos Williams, RB – Buffalo Bills ($5400):

Karlos Williams is officially the starting RB in Buffalo this week.  Even with McCoy playing the past 3 weeks, Williams still managed to score a TD each week.  Now he gets the full workload while going up against a Giants D that is giving up the 4th more fantasy points to RBs so far this season.  All aboard the Karlos Williams train.


Stats for Last Week’s Picks:

Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB – New York Jets: 283 Passing Yards, 2 Passing TDs, 13 Rushing Yards

Lance Dunbar, RB – Dallas Cowboys: 5 Rushing Yards, 10 Catches, 100 Receiving Yards

Donte Moncrief, WR – Indianapolis Colts: 4 Catches, 32 Receiving Yards, 1 Receiving TD

Charles Clay, TE – Buffalo Bills: 5 Catches, 82 Receiving Yards, 1 Receiving TD

Rishard Matthews, WR – Miami Dolphins: 6 Catches, 113 Receiving Yards, 2 Receiving TDs

5 Undervalued Players in Daily Fantasy Football – Week 3

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.
