Week 2 FanDuel Tournament Picks

By Jared Smola 9:09am EDT 9/18/20


QB

Josh Allen ($8,200)

Allen is the ultimate GPP play at QB. His ceiling is as high as any QB in the league not named Lamar Jackson or Patrick Mahomes. Allen dominated the Jets in Week 1 with his first career game of over 300 passing yards, 2 passing TDs and 57 rushing yards with an additional TD.

Allen will go extremely under-owned in Week 2 as he is priced just $100 less than chalk-option Dak Prescott against the Falcons. Allen comes in with a projected ownership of just 6% in an elite matchup against the Dolphins.

Allen lit up the Dolphins last season with QB10 and QB1 finishes. Miami just allowed Cam Newton to run for 75 yards and 2 TDs on them. Allen is a lock and load GPP play for Week 2.


RBs

Aaron Jones ($7,700)

TDs are huge on FanDuel, and Jones is elite in that department. He scored 20 times in 2019 and once again got in the box in Week 1 of 2020.

Jones quietly had 16 carries and 4 catches on 6 targets in the opener, as the Packers went nuclear for 40+ points on the Vikings defense. As 6-point favorites on the road against a dismal Lions defense, I expect Jones to get in the end zone once again. He’s underpriced at just $7,700.

Jones is the #1 RB in our dollars per point rankings but comes in at a projected ownership of under 4%. I will be looking to roster Jones in at least 20% of Week 2 GPP lineups.

Jonathan Taylor ($5,800)

With Marlon Mack going down for the season with an Achilles injury, Taylor is at least $1,000 too cheap on FD this week. The rookie carried the ball just 9 times in Week 1 for 22 yards, but the Colts fell behind and elected to use more of Nyheim Hines, who also vultured 2 TDs.

Taylor was also heavily used in the passing game, with Philip Rivers loving to check it down to his RBs. Taylor caught all 6 of his targets for 67 yards against the Jags. If we project Taylor for a few more carries and a similar target outlook, he will smash his $5,800 price tag against an overrated Vikings defense who lost a lot of key pieces in the offseason.

Taylor isn’t going overlooked this week with a FanShare ownership projection over 15%, but I will look to double the field and play him in at least 30% of my Week 2 GPP lineups.


WRs

Calvin Ridley ($7,100)

Ridley was on a tear to end 2019 with over 76 yards and/or a TD in his last 4 games. He picked up right where he left off, annihilating the Seahawks defense for 9 catches, 130 yards and 2 TDs on 12 targets in last week’s opener.

The Falcons-Cowboys game has the highest over/under on the slate with Vegas projecting a back and forth affair. The Cowboys secondary doesn’t have the tools necessary to keep up with Julio Jones and Ridley.

Ridley comes in as the #10 WR in our dollars per point rankings. At just 10% projected ownership, I will be looking to roster him in about 20% of my GPP lineups for Week 2.

Marquise Brown ($6,200)

Hollywood Brown is an elite GPP play in Week 2, coming in as the #2 WR in our dollars per point rankings with a ownership projection of just 7.5%.

Brown did all of his damage in Week 1 in the first half against the Browns, as he accumulated over 100 yards on just 6 targets. If the Texans are able to keep it close, Brown could be in for a huge day as they have no one in their secondary that can keep up with him.

I’ll be looking to roster Brown in about 20% of my GPP lineups, looking to triple the field on a guy with excellent upside at relative low ownership and an affordable price tag.


TE

Mark Andrews ($7,500)

We want TDs at TE — and Andrews could be the new Gronkowski with another 2 TDs in Week 1 against the Browns.

Andrews played over 70% of the snaps in Week 1 and will certainly be Lamar Jackson’s favorite option when they get down close in the red zone. Dating back to last season, Andrews has 9 TDs in his last 8 games and can easily finish as the overall TE1 once again this week.

With a projected ownership of just 12% and TE1 upside, I will be looking to roster Andrews in about 25-30% of my Week 2 GPP lineups.


DST

Bucs ($3,800)

The Bucs defense was quietly outstanding in Week 1, holding the Saints to just 6.4 yards per pass and 2.4 yards per rush. Along with the Titans, they’re the largest Week 2 favorites. It could be a long day for Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater if the Bucs are able to build an early lead.

The Bucs come in as the top defense in our dollars per point rankings and don’t appear to be overly chalky at just 9.5% projected ownership.
