Well folks it's the last week of the regular season, and the slate on FanDuel is amazing this week. I'll go through one of my favorite GPP lineups and see if we can bring in the new year with a little extra cash.
Eli Manning $7,500
The Eagles @ Giants game is a big one this week with an over/under of 51. The Eagles and Giants defenses cannot stop anyone, and the Giants are coming off of a horrible game last week against the Vikings. I think the Giants bounce back, and Eli gives us a great showing in Tom Coughlin's last game.
Tim Hightower $7,000
I picked Hightower last week, and I'm riding the Tim-train ‘til the end. With the Saints heading to Atlanta in a game that has the highest over/under of the week, I love the volume I'm getting for $7k. Hightower should continue to see the same workload as a determined Drew Brees and company delight in a shootout against the Falcons.
Cameron Artis-Payne $5,500
I need to save a few bucks somewhere to get the lineup I want this week, and Artis-Payne is my penny-pincher pick of the week. The Panthers need to win, and Artis-Payne is in a last-man-standing situation in the Carolina backfield. You don't need him to do much, but I am thinking the other Cam gives us just enough to pay off this week.
Julio Jones 9,300
Julio and the Falcons are facing the Giants, and the Giants haven't been able to stop anyone this year on defense. With the Saints coming to town, I think we'll see plenty offense in this matchup. The Falcons coaching staff may be able to save their jobs with a big game this week. We saw the good times return last week with the Ryan to Julio combo last week, I'll take my chances with it again this week.
Odell Beckham Jr. $8,900
Stacking Eli and Odell this week. If he needs it, Beckham should all the added motivation/gusto he could possibly need this week. After missing last week's game, I think we're in for another typical, amazing day from Odell.
Jordan Matthews $6,600
Matthews has put together several nice games to close out the year, Chip Kelly has been released, and the Philly/Giants game is expected to be a big one as far as scoring is concerned. I think Bradford will have a nice game through the air against the Giants secondary, and Matthews will be a big benefactor of that soft coverage this week.
Zach Ertz $5,700
I like Ertz for the same reasons I've queued up Jordan Matthews this week. Ertz should have no problem slicing through the Giants secondary, and here at the end of the year, he too is pouring it on.
Josh Brown $4,600
I need to save a few bucks, and Brown gives you a nice options at just over $4,500 this week.
Pittsburgh Steelers $4,900
The Steelers face the Browns to close out the season. The Browns are finishing the year in typical Browns fashion, the Steelers have a chance to sneak in to the playoffs. After losing to the Ravens last week, I'm counting on the Steelers to bounce back against a Cleveland team that I think will phone it in here in Week 17.
That does it for this week, good luck out there folks!
