Values abound on FanDuel this weekend. Check out a few of my favorite value plays for the Sunday NFL slate.

Brian Hoyer - $6,000 – Chicago @ Indianapolis (-4.5), +/- 48

Hoyer will have a pretty high ownership percentage coming off a good game and costing owners a grand above the minimum. He's got a good matchup against an Indy D that hasn't stopped anyone this year. We've seen Hoyer put up good numbers before, and it's a safe bet that he'll do it again here in Week 5.

James White - $5,500 - New England (-10.5) @ Cleveland, +/- 47

I believe in the ‘Angry Brady’ narrative, and so I believe that most Patriots are a great play this weekend. The poor, poor Cleveland Browns are having another very Cleveland Browns season. While the Pats have leaned on LeGarrette Blount early in their first 4 games, White should see more action with the return of Brady.

Dontrelle Inman - $6,100 – San Diego @ Oakland (-3.5), +/- 51

Inman had a huge game last week against the Saints, a game where he saw 11 targets and found the end-zone. With the Chargers facing the only defense comparable to the New Orleans, you want to get your Chargers in your GPP lineups this weekend.

Delanie Walker - $6,400 – Tennessee @ Miami (-3.5), +/- 43

I’d rather pay up a bit at tight end this week with Zach Miller nursing a rib injury and poor matchups for the cheaper guys we’ve been rolling with early this year. Walker is really the only game going in the Titans receiving corps and Miami is… well they’re going to have a premium draft pick next year.

Titans - $4,200 - Tennessee @ Miami (-3.5), +/- 43

The Titans are losing close games, slowing down the pace, and not giving up a ton of points. Ryan Tannehill is getting sacked at an alarming rate, and he’s being awfully generous with interceptions this year. If you need to save a nickel on your defense, go with Tennessee.

Mike Nugent - $4,600 – Cincinnati (-2) @ Dallas, +/- 45

The Nuge is having another consistent year for a Bengal’s offense that is having no trouble moving the ball. If the Bengals keep truckin’ on O, Nugent will convert on his chances.
