Five Value Players I like for Sunday

John Manuel

By John Manuel:

Here are five low dollar players I like for Sunday if you’re playing DraftKings, FanDuel or any of the other daily fantasy sites. Below we have listed their DraftKings prices, or should we say values. These guys should reach or exceed value, but more importantly let you get those top plays in your lineups.

Because a lot of these guys present risk, they are better GPP/Tournament plays.

So what do you think, which value players are you targeting? And which nfl fantasy stats do you focus on when building daily fantasy lineups?

1- Marcus Mariota- Titans vs. Vikings $6400 DK

My feeling is that Mariota will become a solid option all season even with the not ready to contend Titans.  Even with a good Vikings defense Mariota at home will put up decent stats.  I like how he now has a couple running backs lining up with in the backfield that can do damage.  Tennessee has some excitement now and I even think they could pull off the upset led by a solid Mariota performance.

2- James White– Patriots vs. Cardinals $3600 DK

Someone will need to take the role of top Pats running back and why not White.  Who stepped up after Dion Lewis went down and caught a lot of balls in that role last season.  Garrapolo could be forced in this game to put the ball up a lot and why not with a lot of dump offs to his backs.  Something the Patriots have been known for.

3- Willie Snead- Saints vs. Raiders $4800 DK

Snead came out of no where and put up big catch numbers but the kinda fizzled.  I think he is back baby and will catch enough balls to be a solid third receiver.  Everyone likes Thomas but gonna give it some time to see how the rookie is.

4- Will Fuller- Texans vs Bears- $3700 DK

I know I just said give Michael Thomas some time as a rookie but Fuller has big play potential.  And against a possible sh*tshow like the Bears its worth taking a chance on a Desean-like big play touchdown at such a low price.  Word that Fuller has stepped up all summer makes him intriguing.

5- Jacob Tamme– Falcons vs. Bucs $2800 DK

I know Tamme is not a regular option but the fact is that Matt Ryan lights up the Bucs.  And why not take a chance on the Falcon’s tight end to make a few plays. $2800 is so low it may be worth the risk.
