If you are new to a salary cap format, here are the basics. You get a fake budget to spend on your players/team. Your weekly lineup strategy is completely up to you. You can target a group of medium-priced players, or play some higher-priced studs mixed with lower-priced value plays. All you need to do is stay under the salary cap.
You’ll need to save money on at least a couple of positions if you want to roll with any high-priced studs in your lineup. With that in mind, here are some FanDuel value picks for Week 10 that I like (based on a $60k budget; sorted by position and price).
Vick was a bit bland last week, but he could get a boost with his matchup for Week 10. Facing a Steelers team that is putting up a lot of points lately, Vick could be forced pass and run more this week. If the Jets fall behind, there could be plenty enough late game numbers for Vick this week.
If you’re looking for a cheap QB play, Mark Sanchez has a good amount of upside with Chip Kelly’s fast paced offense. Sanchez hasn’t been consistent in his past, but he stepped up last week and looked as good as Nick Foles. Sanchez is the 24th priced QB on FanDuel for Week 10.
Running Backs (.5 PPR)
It’s a short week for the Bengals as they play on Thursday this week. It’s very possible Giovani Bernard is held out again this week. If Bernard is out, Jeremy Hill could be a great play against a Cleveland team that is currently the 2nd worst in the league against the run.
The Rams can be frustrating with a committee, but Tre Mason is their best RB. It’s a bit grey, but I suspect Mason leads his team for touches and is a candidate for 15+ carries. Mason is a bit more risk than I like this week with his run matchup, but his low price could make for some nice upgrades elsewhere in your lineup.
Wide Receivers (.5 PPR)
Marshall could be a solid value pick this week. This could be a high scoring matchup and if the Bears fall behind, even more upside for Marshall. Marshall has been disappointing in his last 2 games, but I like his chances to rebound this week. Marshall has 10 targets in each of his last 2 games.
The Jets did well getting Harvin involved last week with 13 targets for 129 yards. Going against a Steelers team that has been putting up a high amount of points, Harvin could get a heavy dose of catch up and late game numbers.
Tight Ends (.5 PPR)
Against the Packers earlier this season, Bennett put up 9 catches for 134 yards. He’ll be on the road this time, but the upside is still there and even higher if he can find the end zone in this re-match.
A repeat on the list, but Kelce always has TE1 upside. Going against a Buffalo defense that can be stingy against the run, Kelce could get extra targets this week.
I don’t trust the rookie Zach Mettenberger against the Ravens this week. The Ravens are at home and should be very aggressive against the rookie QB. After last weeks loss against the Steelers, the Ravens should be highly motivated.
It’s time to pick on the Jaguars again. If Tony Romo plays this week, the Jags could fall behind early in this matchup and Blake Bortles can’t be trusted yet. Blake Bortles is averaging 2 interceptions per game.
Punting on 3rd Down
