5 Undervalued Players in Weekly Fantasy Football – Week 11

This late in the season it can be really hard to find undervalued players that are solid plays.  So, this list is mainly filled with deep sleepers that are pretty gutsy plays.  They all have the potential to post solid numbers, but that doesn’t come without risk.

Brock Osweiler, QB – Denver Broncos ($5900)

peyton-manning

Welp, Peyton Manning is heading to the bench for a little while due to injury and that brings in the young whipper snapper, Brock Osweiler.  We haven’t seen much play from him yet, but he instantly plugs into a very solid offense with a ton of weapons.  With the QB position being so pricey, he looks pretty attractive for the price of $5900.

Marvin Jones, WR – Cincinnati Bengals ($4600)

marvin-jones

The Arizona defense will most likely be locked in to the Bengals main weapons, AJ Green and Tyler Eifert.  That could leave a lot of room for Marvin Jones to make some big plays.  Both teams have solid defenses, but even better offenses.  That could mean this will turn into quite an interesting shootout.

Jamison Crowder, WR – Washington Redskins ($3900)

Crowder just seems like he’s due for a breakout game.  The number of targets he’s seen has increased over the course of the season, and Kirk Cousins seems to be more consistent in throwing the ball lately.  Carolina’s secondary is solid, but a shifty guy like Crowder should definitely make for a great option in the passing game.

Jay Ajayi, RB – Miami Dolphins ($2400)

jay-ajayi

A lot of people are thinking Jay Ajayi snags a red zone look or two from Lamar Miller going forward.  It’s not necessarily a long shot to think that, especially with Ajayi’s skillset, and how well he’s played since being activated off the IR.  It’s a gutsy play, but not a terrible gamble for your flex spot.

Shaun Draughn, RB – San Francisco ($3300)

colin-kaepernick

Kaepernick is out, and now Carlos Hyde is out.  The 49ers will now be looking to Shaun Draughn to takeover the starting RB position.  It’s a tough matchup against the stout Seattle defense, but he should be in for a pretty large workload.  $3300 for a starting RB is not too shabby.

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

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):

cj-spiller

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):

christine-michael

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):

stefon-diggs

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):

landry-jones

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.
