DraftHustle’s Top Fanduel Tournament Game Plays of the Week!
Mike White – NYJ ($7,000) vs Seahawks
Like a Phoenix from the ashes, Mike White has risen from the grave to save the Jets from obscurity. He has been cleared from his rib injury to be the starter in week 17, and he immediately is a startable fantasy option. He has averaged 317 passing yards per game in his 3 starts, and the Jets will need to pass to keep up with their opponents, the Seattle Seahawks. Seattle has been better against QBs recently, which will help keep Mike White’s ownership down, and help his GPP viability.
Tyler Allgeier – ATL ($6,700) vs Cardinals
The Falcons have begun seeing what they have in their rookies, and for Tyler Allgeier, we love to see it. He has averaged 126 total yards in his last 2 games as the lead ball carrier for a team that can’t (and refuses to) pass the ball regardless of game script. The Falcons face the Arizona Cardinals who are spiraling into chaos, and the team plays like it. They give up the 3rd most Fanduel points to RBs over the last 5 weeks, so Allgeier is in a nice spot for usage and production.
Allen Lazard – GB ($6,200) vs Vikings
With Christian Watson hampered by a hip injury and Romeo Doubs recently returning from IR, Allen Lazard will be looked to by Aaron Rodgers to lead the Packers WR core against the Vikings in week 17. The Packers will look to target the Vikings weak secondary, who give up the 3rd most yards per target, 2nd most Fanduel PPG, and the most receiving yards to WRs on the season. Allen Lazard tied his season high with 11 targets last week, and he is in a smash spot. At $6,200, he can fit comfortably in cash and GPP lineups.
Tyler Conklin –NYJ ($4,900) vs Seahawks
Tyler Conklin is DraftHustle’s “Cheap option if you are too scared to pay up for Travis Kelce” play of the week. He faces the Seattle Seahawks in week 17, who are currently the best matchup for TEs, surpassing the perennially bad Cardinals. At only $4,900, the matchup is worth the risk given his recent production, although that was with Zach Wilson and Chris Streveler. Let’s pray he falls into the endzone!
New England Patriots – ($4,000) vs Miami Dolphins
The New England Patriots are the top value option this week according to DraftHustle’s matchup model. They face a Tua-less Miami Dolphins team that is currently on a 4-game losing streak. The New England D/ST has scored double digit Fanduel points each of the last 3 weeks. They are currently 2nd in the league in sacks and INTs, so they are plenty capable of rattling Teddy Bridgewater and the Miami Dolphins’ mediocre offensive line and causing a few turnovers.
