Week in and week out we are diving into the best value plays at various positions. Each week always plays out differently, especially when deciding what areas to spend down on, and where to spend up. While many articles point out the top values, we hope to guide you in lineup construction as well. Pricing on FanDuel generally ties into fantasy point outcome, where on DraftKings, matchups and ownership are baked into the algorithm a little more. Injuries, seasonal changes, and matchups all create value, and here at DFC we break that down for you. Our content is focused on the Main Slates, but you can find me answering questions in the comments, or on Twitter at @JGuilbault11. Premium access grants full list of value plays.
Carson Wentz, QB, Philadelphia Eagles
Yards Per Attempt
Opposing Secondary Rank
Carson Wentz may not qualify for you as value, but he should. Wentz has thrown for 17 touchdowns this season, and has also rushed for 196 yards. He gets a tremendous home matchup against San Francisco, who have allowed the second most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks this season. They have allowed seven total touchdowns in the last two weeks to other NFC East quarterbacks, in Kirk Cousins and Dak Prescott. Only two quarterbacks have failed to score two or more touchdowns against San Francisco this season, which was Russell Wilson and Jacoby Brissett. Wentz is averaging 2.4 touchdowns per game over his last eight games, and 8.1 passing yards per attempt. Philly has hte largest total (30) of the week, and has the highest Pts/$1K on the slate at quarterback. That is why he is a value.
