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. Out of 24 Quarterbacks to choose from I think I have found five of them that might outdo the rest of the pack.
New England Patriots QB Tom Brady ($9100) is pricey but he does have a good matchup this week on the road against a New York Jets defense allowing 260.5 passing yards a game and 16 touchdowns this season. The Jets are especially bad at home allowing 12 touchdowns through the air in just four home games. Brady has been very good this season throwing for 1915 yards and 16 touchdowns with just one interception. That’s good for a 24.3 point FanDuel average. Vegas set a 48 point over under with the Patriots an eight point road favorite. Weather shouldn’t play a factor in this one and if you are willing to pay the price Brady is as solid and steady as you can get.
Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer ($7100) hasn’t had the best season but he does have a very good opportunity this Sunday on the road against a Atlanta Falcons defense allowing 283 passing yards a game and 23 touchdowns this season. Palmer has thrown for 2642 yards and 13 touchdowns this season and that equates to 16.1 FanDuel points a game and 10 interceptions this season. There is a 50 point over under with the Falcons an early week four point favorite and the game will be played in a dome so weather won’t be a factor. There are always risks with Palmer but the price is right and the matchup is about as good as it gets.
New York Giants QB Eli Manning ($7800) has a terrific matchup this Sunday on the road against a Cleveland Browns defense allowing 265.5 yards a game and 25 touchdowns this season. Manning has been solid throwing for 2708 yards and 17 touchdowns with ten interceptions for a 16.2 FanDuel points per game average. The weather shouldn’t be a factor and Vegas has set a 45 point over under with the Giants an early week seven point road favorite. The thing about the Browns is that they actually play better defense on the road then at home as they have allowed 16 passing touchdowns in just five home games as opposed to nine in six road games.
Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr ($7900) has been terrific this season and he has a home game this Sunday against a Carolina Panthers defense allowing 271.1 passing yards a game and 19 touchdowns this season. This season Carr has thrown for 2800 yards and 20 touchdowns with just four interceptions for a 19.6 FanDuel points per game average. Weather shouldn’t be a problem and Vegas set a 49.5 point over under with the Raiders an early week 3.5 point home favorite. This should be a high scoring affair and hopefully Carr can continue racking up yards against a shaky Panthers secondary.
Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff ($6000) is awfully cheap and he has a road matchup against a New Orleans Saints defense allowing 280.7 passing yards a game and 14 touchdowns this season. Goff is making just the second start of his career and while he didn’t light the world on fire against Miami last week he did throw the ball 31 times completing 17 for 134 yards and ZERO interceptions. Goff should fly under the radar this week and you will be able to practically play any other player you would like if you do decide to use Goff on Sunday.
Good luck at FanDuel!
