A new season of Fantasy Football is just around the corner and the Daily Fantasy Sports games are more alive than ever. I spend a good part of my fantasy football season playing on FanDuel each week during the NFL season and look to find the best matchups and gems for that particular week. Well we are still a good 3 weeks away from Week One of the NFL season but I wanted to take some time and look at some of the best options at player prices at FanDuel. Over the next week I will be picking one position at a time and breaking down the top 5 options and their prices for that week and also give 1 value play at the position.
01. Matt Ryan ATL $8,800 (@NO) - The Saints are awful when it comes to defending the pass and often find themselves in a shoot out style of game each and every week. Matt Ryan continues to impress and has the top duo at WR with Julio Jones and Roddy White. Add in Tony Gonzalez sure hands and the addition to the newest pass catching RB Steven Jackson and you have a recipe for a huge fantasy game. Target Ryan as the top choice when deciding on your Week 1 FanDuel lineup.
02. Tony Romo DAL $8,200 (vs NYG) - Dez Bryant, Miles Austin, and Jason Witten are going to be in for a big day with Romo throwing the ball. The NFC East teams always seem to get into high scoring affairs when the meet each other and this particular matchup looks to be a high flying offensive one. It is hard to trust the Cowboys running game currently so I have to go all in on Romo at this point to lead the offense.
03. Matthew Stafford DET $8,500 (vs MIN) -
04. Drew Brees NO $9,600 (vs ATL) -
05. Andrew Luck IND $8,500 (vs OAK) -
VALUE PLAY Brandon Weeden CLE (vs MIA) -
