What are the best FanDuel tournaments and GPPs strategies and players for optimal lineups for Week 14 of the 2018 NFL season? This piece will run through each by offering up chalk plays, contrarian plays, and stack options — all from a tournament perspective.
Chalk: Drew Brees ($8,500). Brees had 439 yards and three scores against the Buccaneers in Week 1, and on the season as a whole, Tampa has given up the fourth-most fantasy points per dropback. The Saints/Bucs game has the highest over/under of the week (55.5).
Chalk: Ben Roethlisberger ($8,600). Roethlisberger and the Steelers are 10.5-point favorites against the Raiders, who have given up the most fantasy points per dropback to quarterbacks. It’s a road game, but that won’t slow Roethlisberger in this matchup.
Contrarian: Matt Ryan ($8,200). The Packers/Falcons over/under continues to rise, and as of this writing, it’s at 50.5. (PFF projects 53 total points.) Ryan has a high ceiling in this matchup and projected ownership under 5%.
