Week 3 NFL FanDuel Value Picks

If it was not clear last week the goals of these posts are to give you a pick or two in your FanDuel lineups that allow you to put together a great team. I dont need to tell you to try to start Tom Brady, Adrain Peterson or Andre Johnson, but in order to fit their large salaries into your line ups, you’ll need a pick or two at a cheaper price to use.

If you have not tried FanDuel, don’t. It is completely additive and way too much fun, plus you can legally make money doing it. (What’s NOT TO LOVE!) To see how this is legal check out my previous post click HERE. To get started with FanDuel, click the link or the banner and get up to a $20 deposit bonus on your first deposit.

Kevin Kolb @ SEA – $7700 – I’ll be honest, I’m still a bit of a Kolb doubter but the match up is just too good. Seattle ranks 29th in passing D and Beanie Wells was dinged up in practice on Thursday so the door is open for Kolb. (Others to consider: Cam Newton vs JAC – $8000, Matthew Stafford @ MIN – $8400, Phillip Rivers vs KC – $8900)

Mark Ingram vs HOU – $5600 – Everyone has been just waiting for this kid to break out and we might finally have the game for him to do it. His first two games were vs GB and CHI. Where he saw 13 and 14 carries vs the 11th and 12th ranked rushing defenses respectively. Houston’s passing defense has been fairly solid (7th) but their rushing D is ranked 24th and gave up over 100yds on 18 attempts to another rookie RB last week, Daniel Thomas.

Ben Tate @ NO – $6400 – We all know the story by now, Arian Foster has a lingering hamstring issue left over from the preseason. Foster gave it a go last week but it seems that go was too soon. Tate has looked great so far and has received the lion’s share of carries with 23+ touches in his two games. New Orleans is ranked 25th versus the run. All signs point to this game being a high scoring game with two high power offenses, look for Tate to have a big day. (Others to consider: Daniel Thomas @ CLE – $6100, Mike Tolbert – $6600, Rashard Mendenhall – $7500)

Nate Burleson @ MIN – $6200 – He’s back again for a 2nd week in a row. I really wanted to avoid it but I poured over the WR prices and match ups and it is a tough week for value WRs. I guess that shows you how much the NFL has become a passing league with so many top WRs producing every week. Sooner or later defensive coordinators are going to possibly TRIPLE team Calvin Johnson as he’s not going to keep scoring two TDs every week and Nate Burleson will get in the endzone.

Nate Washington vs DEN – $5900 – Yes, I’m as surprised as you are while I’m writing this but there is another guy that lines up on the other side of the field from Kenny Britt, that’s Nate Washington. Washington is 18th overall in targets with 13 catches and 83yrds/game this year. Just like the Nate above with a star-WR on the other side and with TEN struggling ground game in Chris Johnson, Nate Washington is poised to have a good game vs DEN the 24th passing D. (Others to consider: DeSean Jackson vs NYG – $7100, Mike Wallace @ IND – $7800)

Fred Davis @ DAL – $6100 – This might be the last week we see Fred Davis below $6500. He has 11 catches for 191 yards and a touchdown in two games. DAL ranks 15th vs TEs and what is likely going to be the year of the TE in the NFL. (Others to consider: Dustin Keller @ OAK – $6200, Evan Moore vs MIA- $5100, Jermaine Gresham vs SF – $5100, Tony Scheffler @ MIN – $5100)

I really shouldn’t have to tell you to not spend to much on a kicker but FanDuel has some really ridiculous kicker values so some quick picks: Nick Novak vs KC – $5100, Dan Bailey vs WAS – $5200, Phil Dawson vs MIA – $5200.

Most of the defenses are priced the same but at $5000, the Charges D vs a hapless KC, is my choice for most of my teams this week.

Week 2 NFL Fanduel Values

I basically broke even last week in football I waged $117 and won $98, made up quick with it on a very good baseball day last week.

I had a busy week and this post is a bit late but here are my quick picks for Fanduel value:

Matthew Stafford vs KC – DET is at home, KCs defense is decimated with its recent loss of Eric Berry, SS who had 87 tackles and 4 INTs last season. Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 4TDs last week, its the new best show on turf, watch for a huge game from Stafford at $7900. (Others to consider: Rex Grossman – $6500, Big Ben – $8500, Ryan Fitzpatrick – $7900)

Tim Hightower vs ARI- 25 carries last week vs a decent Giants run-D, 72 yards and a TD. Now he faces his old team at home and Arizona’s defense gave up a lot of yards last week. Granted most were in the air to a rookie QB but WAS is a much more balanced team. – $6500

Fred Jackson vs OAK- FJax had 112 yrds on 20 attempts as the Bills tore up KC, he gets the same amount of touches and a TD this week a the amazing price of $5900.

Jahvid Best vs KC – What can I say, another DET player vs KC. See FJax above with his results at KC. Best is home, in the dome, and has great value at $6700. (Other RBs to consider: James Starks @CAR – $6500, Carnell Williams @NYG – $6100, Shonn Greene vs JAC – $6100)

Nate Burleson vs KC – Obviously I’m all-in for Detroit players vs KC. You actually have hope KC scores a few time before DET gets up too much and grinds out the clock. But at $5900 you can pick some higher end RBs instead. (Others to consider: Vincent Jackson @ NE – $6300, Mario Manningham vs STL – $6300, Anquan Bolidin @ TEN – $6500)

Owen Daniels @ MIA- I nearly fell out of my seat when I saw the lovely price of $5100. MIA-D was just ripped apart by TFB and 198 yards and two TDs was given up to the two tight ends of the Patriots. On top of that, WR2 for Houston, Kevin Walter, is likely out. Should be a great game here, especially at $5100. (Others to consider: Jermaine Gresham @ DEN – $5300, Fred Davis vs ARI – $5500)
