Nick Foles, PHI at NYG ($6,000):
The Giants have given up the most fantasy points to quarterbacks, and Foles is at the minimum price for a quarterback. He proved himself competent in 2013 with a 9.1 YPA, and the Eagles offense should continues to roll even without Carson Wentz. And using Foles allows the ability to stack studs at the other positions, though he is probably better suited to GPPs as opposed to cash games.


Mike Davis SEA vs LAR ($5,800):
Davis is clearly the top running back in the Seattle backfield with a healthy 35 touches his last two games, and the Rams have given up the second-most fantasy points to opposing running backs this season. Keep an eye on Davis' status, as he entered the week with a rib injury.

Kenyan Drake, MIA at BUF ($6,500):
Drake has put together back-to-back 20-plus fantasy point games, getting 59 touches. He's being used in the passing game and no one other running back registered a carry for the Dolphins last week. The weather should be markedly better in Buffalo this weekend in a prime matchup against the Bills, who have given up the most fantasy points to running backs.


Jordy Nelson, GB at CAR ($7,200): The return of Aaron Rodgers should resurrect Nelson's fantasy value after not having a double-digit fantasy point game or a receiving touchdown with Brett Hundley. Nelson had six touchdowns through the first four games of the season, and this is probably the lowest his price has been ever when Aaron Rodgers has started a game. The matchup isn't too bad either, as the Panthers have given up the eighth-most fantasy points to wide receivers.

Devin Funchess, CAR vs GB ($7,300):
Funchess has been incredibly consistent since the Kelvin Benjamin trade to the Bills. Funchess has at least 11.1 fantasy points in each game since (five games, 7.8 targets per game), including a 23.7 effort. He's scored four touchdowns in the last four games, and with an ailing Greg Olsen and no Benjamin he'll continue to see plenty of targets. The home matchup Sunday is a good one as the Packers have given up the fifth-most fantasy points to wide receivers.

Tight End

Charles Clay, BUF vs MIA ($5,300):
Clay will have Tyrod Taylor back under center Sunday, which bodes well for his fantasy prospects. The weather should be much better this week in Buffalo, and Clay has always been Tyrod's safety blanket when healthy and on the field. The Dolphins have given up the sixth-most fantasy points to tight ends this season, making them a good team to target. Clay had three games of at least 12.9 fantasy points earlier this season working with Tyrod.


Josh Lambo, JAC vs HOU ($4,700):
Lambo has been fantastic since joining the Jaguars, hitting 16 of 17 field goals. He's been perfect from inside of 40 yards this season, and Jacksonville shouldn't have trouble moving the ball against the Texans' injury-riddled defense.


New Orleans Saints vs New York Jets, ($4,600):
The Saints average a respectable 9.1 fantasy points as a defense/special teams, good for fifth best on Fan Duel. They'll be at home where they've had their two best performances of the season (18 and 33 fantasy points), and it's a good matchup against Bryce Petty and the Jets.
