The Week 10 redzone contest on FanTeam is the biggest yet with a €15k and a €4k Monster contest starting on Sunday at 6pm. This is an eleven game slate including all the 6pm and 9pm kickoffs. There are different buy-in levels to suit your budget but for those who want to try NFL DFS, we have our exclusive 5 Yard Rush contest which is free to enter! Not only that, you can enter four lineups and it’s still free. There isn’t a better way to experience the thrill of NFL DFS without breaking the bank.
Join the fun at:
You build your lineup by picking 1 QB, 2 RBs, 3 WRs, 1 TE, 1 Flex (RB, WR or TE) and 1 DST. Each player has a price and you must construct your lineup while staying below the 135m budget. The obviously ‘best’ plays are higher-priced so you’ll need to think about where you can make savings whilst maintaining upside. Below are some players we think are capable of that and offer good value.
Matt Ryan- Atlanta Falcons – 16.9m
Matt Ryan finally has control of this Arthur Smith offense in Atlanta. As a result, his last few games, even without primary weapon Calvin Ridley, have been extremely encouraging. Ryan is averaging 20.2 fantasy points per game this season. In addition to this, he gets to play the Cowboys this week. The Cowboys are ranked 30th in the NFL in fantasy points allowed to Quarterbacks per game. Expect Matty Ice to keep rolling on this Sunday. Especially as the Falcons are currently the 7th Seed in the NFC in the hunt for the last Wildcard spot.
Teddy Bridgewater- Denver Broncos -16.7m
Murf has been very critical on the show with regards to this offense. However, for fantasy, they have been fairly good. Bridgewater is currently QB15 on the season. However, he is just a handful of points off the top 12 spot. In addition to this, Bridgewater is huge value in terms of price, compared to points he has put up this season. And, he is coming off one of his best games of the season. In addition to this, he faces an Eagles team who give up a ton of yards in the air. They were handedly beaten by the Chargers last week, and I am sure the Broncos, who have playoff aspirations of their own, saw that and will target the Cornerbacks and the deep ball in this one.
Melvin Gordon- Denver Broncos – 11.6m
There is an argument that both Broncos Running Backs are in play for this contest. However, for this particular column, I would argue that Gordon is the better play. The Eagles are giving up just short of 120 rushing yards per game this season. However, I think the Broncos could even exceed that this week. Gordon would be my pick for this week because Gordon has scored 4 Touchdowns in the last three weeks. Conversely, the Eagles have given up 6 rushing Touchdowns in their last 4 games. He represents terrific value.
Tony Pollard- Dallas Cowboys – 10.1m
This one is a boom or bust play. However, with the health of Ezekiel Elliot a concern, with a sore knee, the Cowboys could decide to give Pollard an inflated work load. They did this a few times last year when Zeke was carrying an injury, and it wouldn’t surprise me if they did this again. It’s going to be a gamble. However, if you plan to cash this weekend, it’s smart gambles like this that will present you an opportunity to do so. For what it’s worth, the Falcons are ranked 26th in fantasy points allowed per game to Running Backs.
T.Y. Hilton- Indianapolis Colts – 10.4m
Whilst Hilton is still not officially cleared in terms of the concussion protocol, he is expected to clear that before Sunday, unless he gets a setback. The risk of him returning has argubally been placed into his value, therefore, he becomes an intriguing play. The Jags are the 29th ranked team in the NFL in fantasy points allowed to Wide Receivers, so it looks like an opportunity too good to turn down. Especially as he looked sharp upon his return from injury and has no problem separating from coverage.
Russell Gage- Atlanta Falcons – 10.6m
Gage got a significant amount of targets last week. Enough to appear on Murf’s Waiver Wire column this week. And it is this kind of volume, mixed in with the lack of opportunity, and a great matchup vs. the Cowboys that is just too good to turn down. The Cowboys rank 25th in fantasy points allowed to Wide Receivers this season, meaning all of Patterson, Pitts and Gage should be peppered with targets. He looks like a great stack option with Ryan.
Pat Friermuth- Pittsburgh Steelers – 10.7m
Friermuth has three Touchdowns in his last two games. This week, the Steelers get the luxury of playing the Lions, who are winless this season. Without any competition from Ebron, and the injury to Smith-Schuster, Friermuth has started to come into his own. Whilst the Lions aren’t the worst team in the world against Tight Ends, the fact they struggle to move the ball will mean Roethlisberger and company will get many opportunities to move the chains and chase redzone opportunities. He should be a steal at his price this weekend vs other similar priced options.
Noah Fant- Denver Broncos – 9.9m
If you have not been sold on targeting the Eagles at Quarterback or Running Back, then let me tempt you here at Tight End. The Eagles are dead last at fantasy points allowed to Tight Ends in the NFL. Fant should clear COVID protocols this week to return on Sunday. And, as a true playmaker in this offense, he will be looking to make up for lost time. Also, with the return of Jeudy, it will mean defenses will have to pay more attention out wide, and almost allow some yards up the middle. This will be good news for Fanteam scoring Tight Ends. There will also be several Redzone opportunities as well for Fant this week.
