FanDuel Value Plays Week 6 by @NFLClark

I finally had a nice week on FanDuel last week. Hoping that the hits keep coming here in Week 6. I'll go over a couple of my favorite plays this week below. Good luck out there!

Quarterback

Eli Manning - $7,800

The Giants haven't run the ball well yet this year, and they head to Philadelphia to take on the Eagles this week. The Eagles are hitting their stride offensively after a slow start, and this game is expected to be high-scoring. Odell Beckham is expected to play, and that gives Eli the target he needs to get over 300 yards and at least a couple of touchdowns.

Ryan Fitzpatrick - $6,900

Fitzpatrick has been a great start in most weeks so far this year. With the Jet's hosting Washington this week, I expect the men in green will have no problem moving the ball through the air. Eric Decker should be available this week, and with Chris Ivory doing more than enough to at least threaten the run, Fitz could have another banner day this week.

Running Back

Adrian Peterson - $8,900

Peterson is the Cadillac play at RB this week. The Chiefs D gives up plenty of yards and points, and the Vikings are leaning on Peterson heavily. If you're going to spend up on a running back this week, AD is a great candidate.

Arian Foster - $8,500

If you want a stud RB, want to save a couple hundred in salary, and want to roster a low-owned guy, Foster is a nice play this week. I think ‘the public' is going to be waiting for Foster to put up a good game before being willing to pay up for him, and Jaguars are, well, the Jaguars.

Andre Ellington - $5,600

Ellington only needed 1 play to pay off his price last week. His long touchdown showed he's back to 100% healthy. A running back with Ellington's skillset in the potent Arizona offense is well worth his price this week.

Denard Robinson - $5,100

The Jaguars face a Texans defense that has not been as stout this year as we thought they would be entering the season. Last year, Robinson had some great outings when he was healthy and the lead back. With TJ Yeldon ailing, Robinson could be in for a big workload. I know that Toby Gerhart was getting the #1's reps in practice, but Robinson is simply better. If Yeldon sits, Robinson should be in your lineup this week.

Wide Receiver

Odell Beckham Jr. - $9,100

Odell is the highest price receiver this week, and against the Philadelphia defense, on Monday Night Football, he's going to be worth his price. Eli will have to lean on Beckham this week. Neither the Giants nor Eagles defense is going to do much too slow down the opposing offenses, and we should see fireworks in primetime.

Brandon Marshall - $8,000

I think the Jets are going to attack Washington through the air this week, and Marshall will continue his great 2015 campaign. Decker returns, giving Washington more to think about on defense. With Fitzpatrick and Marshall already muy simpatico, Marshall is a nice play this week at 8k.

Jordan Matthews - $6,600

I can't quit Matthews. He's going to have a huge game here eventually, and I want in while his price tag is so low. I wont re-hash my thoughts on the Giants v Eagles matchup again, but I think Matthews chips in big-time for the Eagles this week.

Dwayne Harris - $5,300

Harris has become a nice third receiver for the Giants this year. With the Giants' top two receivers battling hamstring injuries, Harris could fall in to a big workload. Even if Ruben Randle and Odell Beckham are full-go, Harris could still pay off his salary at a nice, low, salary-savin' $5,300. As an added bonus, for you Where the Buffalo Roam fans, when Harris hits pay-dirt, you get to yell "Harris, from the post" in your best Bill Murray voice.

Tight End

Rob Gronkowski - $8,200

Gronk Smash. I (and everyone else, so we'll all be wrong) expect the Patriots to crush the Colts this week. Gronk may be owned less than usual coming off his pedestrian 4 catch, 67 yard outing against the Cowboys. I'm finding a way to get Gronk in most lineups this week.

Antonio Gates - $5,500

Last week was not an anomaly. Gates is getting long in the tooth, but he has plenty left to get a few catches and a few touchdowns. The Chargers are going to have to score to keep up with Green Bay, and the Packers don't have anyone that can check Gates. If you pass on Gronk, but still want a quality tight end play this week, Gates is your man.

Kicker

Brandon McManus - $4,800

McManus has been the model of consistency, even if the Broncos offense has been mediocre so far in 2015. With his big leg, and the sputtering Broncos offense, I expect McManus to get another few long field goal attempts in this game.

Robbie Gould - $4,500

A nice min-price option this week is Robbie Gould. The Bears are heading to Detroit, and Gould has been consistent this year so far.

Defense

New York Jets - $4,800

The Jets host Washington this week, and expect the Jets D to continue to roll against Kirk Cousins. I'm guessing the Jets get out front early, forcing Cousins to drop back, get sacked, and get picked a few times this week.

San Francisco 49ers - $4,000

The Niners are the lowest price this week, and they host a Ravens squad decimated by injury. If San Francisco can build off their tough loss to the Giants last week, the Ravens are ripe for a whoopin'.
