DraftHustle’s Top Fanduel Tournament Plays of the week
Taylor Heinicke – WAS ($7,300) vs Chiefs
Taylor Heinicke gets a dream matchup against the Chiefs in week 6. Kansas City gives up the most Fanduel PPG to QBs this season. In a game that is expected to be high scoring, Heinicke will have plenty of opportunity to put up points. Be on the look-out for Terry McLaurin’s status, as he popped up on the injury report of Friday. Abandon ship if McLaurin sits.
Darrell Henderson Jr. – LAR ($7,300) vs Giants
Darrell Henderson Jr. hasn’t been the picture of healthy in his career, but he is coming off 10 days rest and gets a good matchup against the Giants in week 6. The Giants gave up 201 rushing yards to Dallas in week 5, and the yare extremely banged up on both sides of the ball. With the Rams being by 9, they should be able to build a solid lead and allow Henderson to get lots of work.
Terry McLaurin – JAC ($7,400) vs Chiefs
Terry McLaurin is having a career year in Washington this season, and he gets the leaky Chiefs defense in a shootout on Sunday. McLaurin Is averaging over 11 targets a game in his last 4, and is 5th in the league in target share, so volume will not be an issue. Be on the lookout for his health status because he missed practice on Friday do to hamstring tightness. If he goes, he makes a solid play in tourneys.
Ricky Seals-Jones – WAS ($5,000) vs Chiefs
Continuing the theme of attacking the Chiefs defense, Ricky Seals-Jones is an ideal play at TE on Fanduel this week. The Chiefs rank last in the league in yards per target and receiving yards per game allowed to TEs. Most people will be paying up for TE, while going cheap at RB, making Seals-Jones a solid contrarian TE play.
Minnesota Vikings – ($3,700) vs Panthers
There isn’t much in terms of value D/STs on this slate, but Minnesota stands out. They rank second in the NFL in sacks, and they face a Panthers offense that will be without Christian McCaffrey yet again. If you are in need of a sub-4k D/ST, Minnesota is your best bet.
