DraftHustle’s Top Fanduel Tournament Game Plays of the Week!
Daniel Jones – NYG ($7,800) vs Lions
Daniel Jones has played well this year, which has partly contributed to the Giants success, and it has been due to his rushing ability. He is 4th in the league in rushing yards per game for QBs, which is the equivalent to an extra passing TD in fantasy football. This week he faces the Detroit Lions, who are the worst overall defense in the league, and they give up the most rushing yards per game to QBs. They were just torched by Justin Fields, and I expect the Giants to employ a similar approach with Daniel Jones.
Brian Robinson Jr. – WAS ($6,600) vs Texans
Brian Robinson Jr. is coming off his most impressive performance of the season, rushing for 86 yards and a TD against arguably the best defense in the league. In week 11, he gets to face the worst rushing defense in the league in the Houston Texans, who give up by far the most rushing yards to RBs at 156 per game, over 20 yards per game more than the 2nd worst team. The Commanders are favored in a game with the 3rd lowest projected Vegas Over/Under, so Brian Robinson will get plenty of work with multi-TD potential.
Darnell Mooney – WR ($6,000) vs Falcons
After a slow start, Darnell Mooney, along with the entire Bears offense has started to show its true potential. Mooney has averaged over 7 targets a game over his last 5 games, and he faces one of the worst secondaries in the league, the Atlanta Falcons in week 11. Atlanta gives up over 200 receiving yards per game to WRs, and Mooney is easily the Bears’ most proven WR. This game is projected to have the highest Vegas Over/Under at 49.5 and the Falcons are currently favored, so Mooney will have chances to rack up targets and yards in this game. His $6,000 price tag fits nicely in GPP lineups, and he is a nice pivot play from David Montgomery to get a piece of the Bears’ surging offense.
Greg Dulcich –DEN ($5,500) vs Raiders
There isn’t a more contrarian offense to use in DFS than the Denver Broncos, and that can mean good things in GPPs. The Broncos will be without Jerry Jeudy this week, bumping Greg Dulcich up to second on the target hierarchy for Denver. Prior to last week, Dulcich was averaging 6 targets and 68 receiving yards per game. The Broncos get a great matchup in week 11 against the lowly Las Vegas Raiders, who have the 2nd highest TD% allowed and give up the 4th most Fanduel PPG to TEs this season. If you are feeling bold enough to fade the chalk TEs this week, Dulcich is a great pivot play.
Washington Commanders – ($4,000) vs Houston Texans
The Commanders shocked the world last week by handing the Philadelphia Eagles their first loss of the season thanks to their defense forcing 4 turnovers, a safety and scoring a defensive TD. This week, they get a much easier task against the Houston Texans, who are currently projected to have the 4th lowest Vegas implied team total at 18.75 points. While a defensive TD is unlikely, the Commanders have a strong defensive line that can wreak havoc against a weak Texans offensive line and force a few turnovers. I love them as a contrarian D/ST in week 11.
