every week starting Sunday night I put together a preliminary sleeper/value list for every position. I’ve been looking for a community that can offer some good discussion as to the upside and down side to each player on this list. This seems like the best one and the most informative.
Just a little background I play on FanDuel. I only play GPP’s and am looking to prefect my GPP play over the long term. I got lucky and hit a decent 3rd place score and have about a $1,000 bankroll to work with. Nothing big but good enough to work with and build over time. I will also redeposit and have a fall back plan if I bust.
I only play the $1-$2 buy in $30-$60K guaranteed tournaments. I am ok with the variance that goes along with playing large field GPP’s but these are the most fun to me. I am just not that into grinding cash games.
I am looking for players in the $4500-$6500 range that I can pair with elite quarterback/Wide receiver stacks.
Here’s the list and I will most likely Adjust them as the week goes on and do more research. Also, I use the raw defensive statistics on 4for4 to search out the best match ups but that isn’t available until Tuesday so I am going off what I have gathered up to week 12.
Tre Mason $6,000: Plays the Raiders at home on a fast surface.
Bryce Brown $5900: He’s going to be in the Spiller roll when Jackson is fully healthy.
Trent Richardson $5900: I’d rather go Herron at this point as he has the much bigger upside but they play the Redskins at home
Dan Herron $5800: This may be the lowest Herron is all season. Plays the Redskins at home.
Knile Davis $5700: At home against Denver who were somewhat gashed by the Miami running game.
Jerrick McKinnon $5500: Plays Carolina at home who is a bottom 4 run defense last time I checked. Will Tate Vulture his touchdowns? best matchup he’ll have all year and best chance for him to go off.
Stepfan Taylor $5200: Plays Atlanta who is a bottom 4 run defense. Ellington can get banged up at any moment and Taylor stole 2 touchdowns from him a few games back.
Doug Martin $5100: the most unsexy option on here but they play the Bengals. Keep in mind that bengals defense is getting healthier so may not even be worth it at this point.
Let me know what you think I’ll be posting the others maybe tonight or tomorrow
