05 Nov Daily Fantasy Football WR and TE
By: Phil Naessens at http://www.philnaessensshow.com
This week we have plenty of choices at Wide Receiver (WR). Hopefully we make the right choices this week. Here are five players that I think should have great games for you this Sunday at FanDuel.
Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson ($8200) has a great matchup against an Indianapolis Colts defense allowing the WR1 to average 86 yards a game. Overall this Colts defense is allowing 287.8 passing yards a game and 14 touchdowns on the season. Nelson is averaging 59.3 yards per game, has six touchdowns and is averaging 13 FanDuel points per game. Currently the Packers are a seven point home favorite and the 54 point over under is the highest on the main slate. I like Nelson a LOT this week.
Los Angeles Rams WR Kenny Britt ($6000) has a tremendous under the radar matchup against a Carolina Panthers defense allowing the WR1 to average 110 yards a game and the defense as a unit is allowing 286 yards a game and 16 touchdowns this season. Britt has been solid with 33 catches for 535 yards and two touchdowns good for 11.4 FanDuel points a game. Carolina is currently a three point road favorite with a 43 point over under. If the Rams are smart they will attack this Panther secondary, use Britt a bunch and win us some cash!
New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks ($7600) has a great matchup with a San Francisco 49er defense allowing the WR1 to average 81 yards a game and as a unit teams average 222 yards a game and 16 touchdowns. This season Cooks has 36 receptions for 534 yards and five touchdowns and averages 14.7 FanDuel points a game. The Saints are a 3.5 point road favorite with a huge 52 point over under so having some shares of Cook might make sense this week.
Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace ($6600) has a great matchup with a Pittsburgh Steelers defense allowing the WR1 84.4 yards a game and as a unit 283 passing yards a game with eight touchdowns. Wallace has 35 receptions for 490 yards and three touchdowns for a FanDuel average of 12.6 points a game. The Ravens are a three point home favorite with a 43 point over under. Just like Britt I think Wallace is under owned this week and might make folks sorry they didn’t roster Wallace this week.
Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor ($5200) rarely if ever gets mentioned in Fantasy Football circles. Unless of course it’s to sit him. This week he has a matchup with the New York Giants allowing WR3 to average 90.8 yards a game and as a unit 267 yards a game and seven touchdowns this season. Agholor has 21 receptions for 216 yards and a FanDuel average of 5.5 points a game. The Giants are currently a 2.5 point home favorite with an over under of 43. Sometime the illogical choices win in DFS and Agholor will be flying way under the radar this week!
It’s time to wrap this week’s suggestions with the Tight Ends for week nine of the FanDuel Fantasy Football season. This position is never easy; and this is what I have for you.
San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates ($5500) has a terrific matchup this week with a Tennessee Titans defense allowing tight ends to average 70.8 yards a game. Gates has 21 receptions for 152 yards and three touchdowns this season good enough for seven FanDuel points a game. Gates has 13 red zone targets this season and hauled in four of them to account for his three touchdowns this season. The Chargers are an early week five point home favorite with a solid 47 point over under. I like the price here and this seems like a great opportunity for Gates this week.
It’s hard to roster San Francisco 49ers these days but TE Vance McDonald ($4500) appears healthy and has a good matchup at home against a New Orleans Saints defense allowing tight ends to average 49.5 yards a game. This season McDonald has eight receptions for 142 yards and two touchdowns good for six FanDuel points a game. McDonald has just one red zone target and he caught for a touchdown. The Saints are a three point road favorite in a game with an over under of 51 so Vegas expects someone to score from the 49ers and it may as well be McDonald on Sunday!
Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten ($5200) leads NFL tight ends with 13 red zone targets and he has a great matchup this Sunday against a Cleveland Browns defense allowing tight ends to average 65.8 yards per game. Witten has 30 receptions for 290 yards and just one touchdown good for 7.1 FanDuel points a game. I forgot to mention Witten caught seven of those 13 red zone targets and that’s how he scored his lone touchdown. Dallas is an early week seven point favorite and the over under of 48.5 indicates Vegas believes a bunch of points will be scored so why not Witten?
Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle ($5300) has a great matchup with a Green Bay Packers defense allowing tight ends to average 63.5 yards a game. This season Doyle has 31 receptions for 318 yards and four touchdowns and an 8.9 FanDuel points per game average. Doyle also has ten red zone targets catching eight of them for 80 yards and three touchdowns. The huge over under of 54 points with the Packers an early week 7.5 point home favorite leads me to believe Colts QB Andrew Luck will be airing it out on Sunday.
Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge ($5200) has a very solid matchup with a Dallas Cowboys defense allowing tight ends to average 65.1 yards per game. This season Barnidge has 33 receptions for 403 yards without a touchdown and a 7.3 FanDuel points per game average. Barnidge has five red zone targets this season catching one of them but in a game with a 48.5 over under maybe Barnidge will get a few more opportunities than usual.
Good luck at FanDuel!
