What are the best FanDuel tournaments and GPPs strategies and players for optimal lineups for Week 16 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: Ben Roethlisberger ($8,700). The Steelers/Saints game has the slate’s highest over/under at 53, and the Saints have allowed the fifth-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks. Roethlisberger’s home/road splits haven’t existed this year.
Chalk: Andrew Luck ($8,200). On paper, the Giants aren’t the easiest matchup; they’ve held opposing quarterbacks to one or no touchdowns in seven of their last eight. But as a 9ninepoint home favorite, Luck is going to be a popular play. We project him to be the second-highest-owned quarterback of the week.
