Hopefully you’re in the playoffs in your season-long leagues. But, if you’re not, there is still plenty of fantasy to be had on the ole FanDuel. Take a look at one of my favorite GPP lineups for main Sunday slate
Philip Rivers $8,000 - San Diego (-1.5) @ Carolina, +/- 48.5
I love Rivers against the struggling Panthers. We should see plenty of points in this matchup, and the Chargers should have no trouble with the porous Panthers defense.
Matt Forte $7,700 - New York Jets @ San Francisco (-2.5), +/- 43.5
Forte with a rookie QB going up against the worst rush-defense in the league? I’ll take this everywhere I can get it.
Thomas Rawls $6,500 - Seattle (-3) @ Green Bay, +/- 45
Rawls is 100% back from injury and he looks every bit the player I hoped he could be before an ankle injury cut his season short last year. Rawls won’t be at this low of a salary for very long, so get in while the gettin is good.
Dez Bryant $7,800 - Dallas (-3.5) @ New York Giants, +/- 47
Dez continues to find the end-zone on this steady if not potent Dallas offense. In a prime-time matchup against a division rival, we may end up with one of those ‘oh yeah, i sort of forgot how good Dez really is’-type games here
TY Hilton $7,600 - Houston @ Indianapolis (-6.5), +/- 46.5
The Texans don’t have anyone that can hope to hang with Hilton, and while i think the -6.5 number is a little high, I don’t see how TY walks out of this game with anything less than 100 yards and a touchdown.
Kenny Britt $6,900 - Atlanta (-6) @ Los Angeles, +/- 45
I get a little salary relief here with Britt, and I also get a player facing the worst pass defense in the NFL.
Ladarius Green $5,800 - Pittsburgh (-3) @ Buffalo, +/- 46
Green showed us what we all hoped we’d see when we heard he was heading to Pittsburgh this offseason. He looks fully healthy and ready to play a big role as the Steelers make their playoff push.
Matt Prater $4,900 - Chicago @ Detroit (-7.5), +/- 43.5
I had a little salary left over, so I ‘splurged’ on Prater, kicking inside, in a game that Lions should dominate.
Vikings $4,800 - Minnesota (-3.5) @ Jacksonville, +/- 39.5
The Vikings haven’t shown the absolutely dominant form that they opened the season with, but against the human turnover, I like their chances to put up a big number as my DST this week.
