Week 5 FanDuel Tournament Picks

By Jared Smola 12:10pm EDT 10/8/20


QB

Josh Allen ($8,400)

Allen has a nice price on FanDuel and ranks 3rd in dollars per projected point, behind just Dak Prescott and Patrick Mahomes.

Allen has been a monster this season with 1,326 passing yards, 12 passing TDs and 3 rushing scores through just 4 games.

Somehow, Allen goes under-owned every single week and I’ll take advantage again this week going up against a Titans defense that allowed 252 yards and 3 TDs to Kirk Cousins in Week 3.


RBs

James Conner ($7,000)

Coming off a “bye” week, Conner should be fresh after piling up 215 rushing yards and 2 TDs in his last 2 games against the Texans and Broncos.

Conner is simply underpriced for his workload as he will project for 15-20 carries and 3-5 targets. The matchup isn’t an easy one against the Eagles, who rank 13th against the run. With the Eagles offense mightily struggling, though, there should be plenty of play volume for the Steelers and their offense.

Conner ranks 3rd in dollars per projected point, with a projected floor of 14.9 points. I’ll be looking to roster Conner in at least 25-30% of my FanDuel lineups in Week 5.

Jerick McKinnon ($6,400)

McKinnon ranks 5th in dollars per projected point, with a projected floor of 10.9 and ceiling of 18.6. McKinnon is a borderline lock play if Raheem Mostert misses another week after he was used as a workhorse against the Eagles with 14 carries and 7 catches on 8 targets.

With the 49ers favored by 10.5 points and implied for over 27+ in a cake matchup against the Dolphins, McKinnon is an elite GPP play in Week 5. I’ll be looking to roster him in at least 30% of my FanDuel lineups (if Mostert is ruled out).


WRs

Will Fuller ($6,600)

Fuller’s price barely came up from last week, when he was just $6,100 against the Vikings. Fuller was excellent, with 6 catches on 7 targets for 108 yards and 1 TD. It was nearly a 2-TD game, but his 2nd score was called back as the ball bobbled a bit when he hit the ground.

Fuller has by far the best connection with Deshaun Watson as Brandin Cooks was held catch-less last week.

Now Fuller gets an unimposing matchup in Week 5 against the Jaguars, who rank 24th against the pass.

Fuller is in play in GPPs every week with immense upside as we saw last season when he had 217 yards and 3 TDs against the Falcons. He hasn’t had that kind of breakout yet this year, but as long as he’s healthy, he is certainly capable of 100+ yards and multiple scores.

Sammy Watkins ($5,600)

Watkins has seen a solid role with the Chiefs this season, leading the team in snaps and routes run through 4 weeks. Watkins has seen 7+ targets in all 4 games and only found the end zone in Week 1 against the Texans.

Watkins is never owned when the Chiefs are healthy as he is often an after-thought in this dynamic offense.

With extremely low projected ownership on Watkins and high ownership projection on teammate Tyreek Hill, I will be looking to roster Watkins in about 10% of my Week 5 FanDuel GPP lineups.


TE

George Kittle ($7,100)

Coming off a monster game and somehow priced as the TE3 on FanDuel, Kittle is simply the best TE play on the Week 5 slate.

Kittle is unsurprisingly atop the position in dollars per projected point after annihilating the Eagles defense for 15 catches, 183 yards and a TD in Week 4. Now Kittle has another unimposing matchup against the Dolphins, who rank 28th against the pass. The ‘Niners are projected to score over 27 points.

Kittle will be popular this week, but I will still prioritize him and look to roster him aggressively in at least 50% of my lineups.


DST

Browns ($3,800)

Priced at just $3,800 as 1.5-point underdogs, the Browns are flying under the radar against turnover prone Phillip Rivers.

If the Browns build a lead and make Rivers throw, it could be a big day for the defense as they have 3 sacks in 3 consecutive games, 4 INTs in their last 2 and 6 fumbles forced through just 4 games.

The Browns have given up 126 points through 4 games but are opportunistic by attacking the opposing QB and forcing turnovers.

I will be looking to roster the Browns in at least 15% of my lineups as they will be a low-owned, high-upside play in Week 5.
