Wildcard Weekend FanDuel GPP Lineup

Check out this WildCard FanDuel GPP lineup.

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Four games in two days, and plenty of nice matchups on FanDuel this week. I'll go through one of my favorite GPP lineups, and call out why I made the selection.

Quarterback

Bryan Hoyer $6,900

Hoyer is the first man up in my Texans stack this week. With this lineup, I am counting on the Texans to rout a Kansas City team that embarrassed the Texans week 1. KC's winning streak is impressive, 10 in a row in the NFL is no joke. But it has been a few weeks since KC has a faced competition like the Texans can offer. By taking Hoyer as a highly discounted option at Quarterback, I'm able to get a lot of talent in to this roster's pass catcher corps.

Running Back

Eddie Lacy $6,000

With news that Marshawn Lynch is out, I'm going bargain hunting at running back. This slate, as great as it is, is a little short on great running back plays. I'm throwing darts with both of my picks at RB, hoping that guys that have been up and down will be up for me this weekend. Lacy started the year as a no-brainer top 5 re-draft pick. He's played himself in to a time share with James Starks and lost touches to John Kuhn. With this pick, I'm hoping Lacy impresses again late in the year again.

Alfred Blue $5,700

Blue is another guy that has had some good games, and disappeared in few matchups. When the Texans are able to build a lead, they lean on Blue to rush and shorten the game. Keeping  with the theme of the Texans winning big over the Chiefs, I'm crossing my fingers that Blue will manage 20-25 touches and sneak in to the end zone for me.

Wide Receiver

Antonio Brown $9,500

Brown is coming off of another amazing regular season, and his price clearly reflects his elite play. The Steelers are going to have to throw to keep pace with a Bengals team has plenty of talent on offense and Brown could end up posting another hall of fame performance in a primetime Saturday night matchup.

DeAndre Hopkins $$8,800

Hopkins is another high-price option that has had an amazing year. I've discussed the matchup already, and no one can hang with Nuke.

Randall Cobb $ 6,500

Cobb is a question mark here, but I'm betting on Aaron Rodgers and the Packers showing up when the face Washington. Washington's secondary is putrid, and Rodgers has to throw it to someone. Cobb is the cheapest option that could have a monster game, so I'll plug him in and hope.

Tight End

Jordan Reed $7,400

Reed has been on a blistering pace to close out 2015 and he is a must play this weekend. Kirk Cousins loves to throw to Reed, and Reed has proven that when healthy he belongs in the elite Tight End discussion. Washington should be able to score against the Packers, and Reed will be the first option in the red-zone.

Defense

Houston Texans $4,600

JJ Watt and Whitney Mercilus are on a tear as of late, and I'm hoping they make things very uncomfortable on Alex Smith. We're counting on sacks and low scoring here since Alex Smith doesn't make a ton of mistakes, but betting on the Texans to get to the quarterback has been a safe bet so far this year.

Kicker

Dustin Hopkins $4,600

I'll put my chip on the Washington kicker to knock in a few 3-pointers against a poor Packers defense.
