DraftHustle’s Top Fanduel Tournament Game Plays of the Week!
Kenny Pickett – PIT ($6,700) vs Falcons
Kenny Pickett is popping the Drafthustle +/- Model this week, mostly due to his great matchup against the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons rank in the bottom 6 of the league in pass yards per game allowed and Yards per attempts allowed to QBs, and they give up the 10th most Fanduel PPG to the position. Pickett has yet to score more than 20 Fanduel points this season, but this is the matchup for him to break out if it is going to happen, and he has a few options that are easy to stack him with.
Nick Chubb – CLE ($9,600) vs Texans
Nick Chubb is currently projected at 3% ownership on Fanduel, and that means he is all but a lock in GPPs. He is averaging over 110 total yards and 1 TD per game this season, meaning his weekly floor is rather high. This week he faces the Houston Texans who give up the most rushing yards, most total yards, and most Fanduel PPG to RBs this season, in addition to allowing the 8th most points above average to RBs in the last 5 weeks. It could be tough to fit him in at $9,600, but if you can manage it, Chubb can be a tourney winner this week.
George Pickens – WR ($6,700) vs Falcons
George Pickens has been up and down in his rookie year thus far, and his week 13 matchup is shaping up to be an up week for him. He faces the Atlanta Falcons who are the 4th best overall matchup in Drafthustle’s adjusted DVP metric. They have given up the most total points to WRs this season, making Pickens a great GPP play with his elite playmaking ability. He has scored at least 13 Fanduel points in 3 of his last 5 games, and has a great chance to make it 4 of his last 6.
George Kittle –SF ($6,200) vs Dolphins
In his 9 healthy games, George Kittle has scored 11+ Fanduel points 4 times, and 5.2 or less in the other 5, epitomizing the boom or buts nature of the TE position this year. He gets a great matchup in week 13 against the Miami Dolphins, who give up the 3rd most Fanduel PPG to the TE position. This game is looking to be a shoot-out, and the 49ers have the 7th highest Vegas implied Team total at 24.5, which correlates well with TE production. Kittle’s 4.1 points last week will scare people off, making him a great GPP play.
Chicago Bears – ($3,200) vs Green Bay Packers
The Green Bay packers have been so bad this season, that the Chicago Bears who will be without their 3 best defenders from the beginning of the season, project as the best matchup according to the DH +/- model. Aaron Rodgers is banged up, so he may not own the Bears as much as he normally does. Even still, @$3,200, the Bears’ D/ST wont need to do much to hit 2x value, and you get a lot of room to load up other stud plays in your GPP or cash lineups.
