Phils Fantasy Sports
(Maximum Sports Channels – Phil Naessens
) Week twelve of the main slate at FanDuel
has twelve games. There are several ways to go with this and it should be quite the interesting week. There are plenty of running backs with great opportunities and I’ve narrowed them down to five that I think have the best chance to win you some cash this week at FanDuel!
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi ($8400) has been very good at home; over his last five home games he’s scored five touchdowns and rushed for 571 yards on 90 carries. This week the Dolphins are at home against a San Francisco 49ers defense allowing 179 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns this season. The 49ers are terrible on the road; in just four games they have allowed 1092 yards and five touchdowns on the ground. The forecast calls for clear skies but 17 mile an hour winds and that bodes well for the running game and of course Ajayi. Vegas has set a 46.5 point over under with the Dolphins an early week 7.5 point favorite. This is about as good as it gets I think.
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings ($6600) has a terrific matchup with a Cleveland Browns defense allowing 143.9 yards a game and 13 touchdowns this season. The Browns defense is pretty bad at home allowing 920 yards and six touchdowns in five home games this season. Jennings is averaging 10 FanDuel points a game and has rushed for 340 yards on 100 carries for two touchdowns this season. The weather shouldn’t be a problem on Sunday and Vegas set the over under at 44 points with the Giants being an early week seven point favorite. I really like the price for Jennings this week and the matchup is a good one that hopefully Jennings can exploit.
San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde ($6800) has a great matchup on the road against a Dolphins defense allowing 126.1 yards a game and eight touchdowns. In five home games the Dolphins have allowed 522 yards and just two touchdowns. Hyde is averaging 13.2 FanDuel points a game 529 yards on 141 carries and six touchdowns this season. As previously mentioned the skies will be clear but the wind will be blowing and hopefully Hyde can get off to a good start and stay active throughout the game.
San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon ($8200) has a good matchup on the road against a Houston Texans defense allowing 111.6 yards per game and ten touchdowns this season. In five home games this season the Texans have allowed 581 yards and six touchdowns in their own stadium. This season Gordon is averaging 19.7 FanDuel points a game with 838 yards on 217 carries and nine touchdowns. Gordon also has been valuable as a receiver with 33 receptions for 346 yards and two touchdowns. The weather shouldn’t be a factor and Vegas has set an over under of 46.5 with the Chargers an early week 1.5 point favorite. I like this matchup very much this week.
Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware ($7000) was heavily touted last week and he laid a dud. This week he has a great opportunity against a Denver Broncos defense allowing 123.7 yards a game and nine touchdowns this season. In five games at home this season the Broncos have allowed 612 rushing yards and six touchdowns. Ware is averaging 13.5 FanDuel points a game and has rushed for 641 yards and two touchdowns this season; as a receiver Ware has 22 receptions for 340 yards and one touchdown. Weather shouldn’t be a factor Sunday evening and Vegas has set a 39.5 point over under with the Broncos being an early week three point home favorite. I like Ware this week
Good luck at FanDuel!
