FanDuel Daily Fantasy Football Helper: Week 10
FanDuel is beginning to really up the pricing on many of our favorite weekly plays in Week 10, as Patrick Mahomes is edging closer to the $10,000 mark, while stud running backs like Kareem Hunt, Melvin Gordon, and Alvin Kamara are all hovering at or around $9,000. Todd Gurley actually sees a price drop this week, but $10,800 remains a hefty price to pay. Travis Kelce is also at his highest salary of the season, at $8,000. While there's value out there as always, it's perhaps getting more difficult to go full-on stars and scrubs with your lineups compared to what we've seen through the prior nine weeks.
We'll dig into that and more in our weekly FanDuel primer, where we give you an overview of the Sunday main slate to help you get started on your research. As always, we recommend checking out all of numberFire's premium tools at your disposal. In particular, the heat map is a great way to get a general overview of the slate's implied totals, and every team's strengths and weaknesses. You also have access to numberFire's weekly projections, which can assist you in nailing down who might be the slate's top scorers and best values.
Be sure to also pay attention to inactives prior to Sunday's games, which can often completely change the makeup of a given slate. After all, injuries can have a huge impact on playing time, where an otherwise low-priced backup can suddenly find his way into a feature role and become an excellent play.
Now, let's run through some of this week's top plays on the FanDuel main slate.
Philip Rivers ($8,200 on FanDuel): Philip Rivers has shown a solid floor all season, throwing multiple touchdowns in every game and never falling below 15 FanDuel points, but his only real spike week came in Week 1 against Kansas City (29.96). But against a Raiders squad that just got embarrassed 34-3 by the 49ers and undrafted free agent Nick Mullens -- who threw three touchdowns his first career start -- we have to like Rivers' chances of putting up big numbers. The crumbling Raiders rank dead last by a wide margin in Adjusted Defensive Passing Net Expected Points per play, and they're one of just two teams allowing over 30 points a game.
