Taking down massive GPP tournaments like these can be a challenging feat that requires knowledge of both the players you are drafting and the opponents you are playing against. Beating a field with hundreds, of thousands, of entrants can be a daunting task, but correctly drafting players with low ownership percentages, that are also in good spots to produce, is a recipe for success. Below, we'll be highlighting our GPP-specific projections to provide you with players at each position who can produce and also be below 20% owned, preferably lower.
Volatility is the name of the game in GPPs, and quarterbacks don't get much more volatile than Manning. He's a true boom-or-bust play with five games in which he tossed three or more touchdown passes and four games of one touchdown pass or fewer this year. Overall, his 275.6 yards passing per game ranks ninth and his 33 touchdown passes are tied for fourth. Eli struggled the first time the Giants played the Eagles, but the matchup is a good one for him. The Eagles have allowed the seventh most passing yards per game (265.3) and second most touchdown passes (34) this season. The result, from a fantasy perspective, is the third most DraftKings points allowed per game and the second most FanDuel points allowed per game to quarterbacks. The game features a robust 51 point over/under total, per Pinnacle Sports, and the Giants are 3.5-point favorites, so there should be plenty of fantasy points to be had by Manning.
