Don't sweat Gronk's price spike on FanDuel
To Gurley, or not to Gurley? That is the question when constructing tournament lineups this week. It is easier to fade popular options when they are expensive, or when we can pivot to similar players in equally enticing matchups. Neither is applicable to rumbling rocket ship Todd Gurley. He is an affordably-priced home favorite, coming off of a bye, and facing a league-worst Browns run defense that couldn’t hold the Broncos sorry rushing attack under 4.6 yards per carry last week.
Gurley shouldn’t be owned everywhere this week, but if we are creating multiple lineups, it would be insane to not have some exposure. In the likely event that he erupts, not benefitting from it could dig an insurmountable hole. There is no shortage of chalk on this week’s slate to fade, and Gurley’s price allows us to differentiate lineups in other creative ways.
On with the Week 7 FanDuel tournament picks.
