Each week I like to post one of my favorite FanDuel GPP lineups here, so that you all have a nice list of players that appear to be in spots where they'll score big, but will actually leave you very disappointed come Monday night. Without further ado...
Tom Brady - $9,100
Brady continues to pick apart opponents and put up big numbers. The Giants always seem to play the Pats tough, but I think this is a game that the Pats will dominate through the air.
James Starks - $6,000
There are Lots of seemingly great values at running back this week. Starks was named the starter earlier in the week, and he's been the best back for Green Bay so far this season. Against a soft Detroit Lions squad, hoping James hands in a big day for his small salary.
CJ Anderson - $5,900
The Broncos backfield is still a mystery, but CJ looks better than Hillman when I watch the tape. I expect both backs to see plenty of action this week. However, I am hoping that the question marks keep other owners away, and Anderson ends up dominating the play-time this week.
AJ Green - $8,300
I've watched every snap for the Texans this year, and they don't have anyone that hang with AJ Green (keep in mind, maybe 3 corners in the league can). Green is a sort of boom or bust play at this salary, but in a prime time matchup against the Texans, I'm hoping I get to climb the leaderboard late on AJ Green's MNF performance.
Julian Edelman - $8,000
Stacking Edelman with Brady here this week. The Giants secondary is horrible, and while we're trying to figure out which back will pick up Dion Lewis' touches, I think Edelman will be the main beneficiary here.
Allen Robinson - $7,500
Robinson and Hurns have been good options all year, and that Ravens secondary cannot stop anyone. I expect this will be another high scoring game that the Jags manage to find a way to lose late. But, before that, Robinson has a big day.
Jordan Reed - $5,800
I'd be surprised if we don't see at least 25% ownership for Reed this week. The Saints defense is absolutely horrible, and Reed is Kirk Cousins' favorite target.
Dustin Hopkins - $4,500
Hopkins is a nice minimum price option in a game where a lot of points are expected. With my lineup this week, I had nary a nickel to spare, so, Hopkins it is.
Green Bay Packers - $4,900
I really wanted to get the Packers in to my lineup this week. The Lions, not a good football team, and the Pack are coming off a couple of tough losses. I think the Pack will get out in front early and then just crush the Lions' will with sacks and turnovers.
