DFS guide: Week 15 in FanDuel tournaments
Week 15 is primed to be a stars-and-scrubs week in FanDuel tournaments, with so many big names in big spots, it will be hard to get away from that roster construction this week.
If you want to fade the crowd, you’ll have to attack the middle tiers in Week 15.
We’ll go over some options for both strategies in this week’s guide. Below are some possible strategies for you to employ for Week 15 FanDuel GPPs.
(For the FanDuel cash game guide, click here.)
Quarterbacks I like in FanDuel tournaments this week:
- Tom Brady ($8,800)
- Aaron Rodgers ($8,500)
- Russell Wilson ($8,400)
- Ben Roethlisberger ($8,000)
- Cam Newton ($7,900)
- Jimmy Garoppolo ($7,300)
I cover Wilson, Roethlisberger, and Garoppolo in the cash game guide.
I’m definitely paying up for quarterback in GPPs this week. Brady is my favorite option way up at $8,800. He’s so expensive and on such a cold streak that I think people will be off of him more than they should be. But prior to his past two bad games (on the road against division rivals), Brady had been on a season-long tear. Brady’s career stats against Pittsburgh are also absurd. In 12 games, he has a 70 percent completion rate, 294 yards per game, 29 TDs, and 3 INTs.
Roethlsiberger is a much better tournament play than cash game play this week. He’s at home, where he’s always better, and this came could easily turn into a shootout. I’ll definitely have exposure to Big Ben.
Rodgers is another pricy quarterback I love in GPPs this week. He’ll definitely be owned, but probably not at typical Rodgers levels. For one, he hasn’t played in two months. It’s also not that great of a matchup. But Rodgers has slate-breaking upside, so even if his ownership is a little lower than it otherwise would be, it’s a week I want in on in GPPs.
