The Fanduel core games were burned in Week 13 by DJ Chark and Jonathan Williams. We will try and bounce back this week with some nice DFS values among our top four. For fantasy playoff losers, this is the perfect time to try and enjoy some GPP tournaments at Fanduel, and the exemplary composition and tips below will help you do that.
If you are new to this article, we select four players each week we will be overweight in our lineup build. Next, we give an example of how to complete them around tournaments. Our “Core Four” this week are Ryan Tannehill, Alvin Kamara, Jamaal Williams and Mike Williams. This is not an “optimal composition”. rather, it’s an example of one you could build if you started with “Core Four”.

WEEK 14 MULTIPLE KIDS:
Quarterback | Running back Wide receiver Tight end D / ST | Kicker
Option FanDuel Week 14: Listing an NFL DFS Example for GPP
QB: Ryan Tannehill, Titans @ Raiders ($ 7,300)
There weren’t many finalists in the league who were better than Tannehill since taking over for Marcus Mariota earlier this season. Tennessee will always be a team that seems to establish a run through Derrick Henry. Still, Tannehill was extremely effective with his limited attempts to pass and showed enough rushing ability to give him a solid floor at his price point. This week, Tannehill controls only $ 7,300 on FanDuel in a Raiders defensive tackle that has looked horrible in recent weeks and has given up the 4th most fantastic spots in the NFL in opposing quarterbacks. With many of the high-end quarterback options in tough matchups, I have no problem spending Tannehill in both cash games and GPP.
RB: Alvin Kamara, Saints vs. 49ers ($ 7,600)
Kamara was one of the most frustrating players to reach DFS this season. He gets the usual volume of touchdowns and sees amazing volume in the passing game with 45 goals in his last 5 games. However, it has not touched the ground or through the air since Week 3, which has killed its upside. We have to think that some Touchdown bend is coming to Kamara before the end of the season and I’m willing to go with him this week with a very reasonable $ 7,600 invoice. The matchup is tough against the 49ers, but I think the Saints offense will do well at this point with San Francisco playing their second consecutive East Coast, 1 p.m. kickoff. The Kamara is the seventh highest value running back on the plate, which is very low given its upside if the positive touchdown regression finally hit.
RB: Jamaal Williams, Packers vs. Redskins ($ 5,600)
Roster’s build this week leads me to play two value games in my core games, starting with Williams at $ 5,600 on FanDuel. Williams has been the most consistent back in the Packers backfield in recent weeks, absorbing nearly all of the passing game over Aaron Jones, but still comes in at a $ 2,200 discount. While Jones certainly has the highest rise and the most equilibrium stocks, I like the floor Williams offers this season and it makes a lot of sense to get cash or GPP lineup-style “stars and scrubs”. Williams has seen at least 10 bets in each of the last three weeks and I expect that trend to continue with the Packers coming as a 13-point favorite in the Redskins.
WR: Mike Williams, Chargers @ Jaguars ($ 5,900)
The other value game I see this week is Mike Williams. It’s been a tough time for Williams, who doesn’t just have a touchdown since he’s a red zone monster in 2018. Similar to Kamara, I’d be shocked if Williams didn’t have at least some positive rebounding before the end of the season. Williams has been used as the main threat for the Chargers this season and his goal yards are among the highest in the NFL, making him an exciting game on a web like FanDuel that is not worth as much as DraftKings. The matchup is also good for Williams and the rest of the Chargers offense, who take on the Jaguars, who have allowed 34.3 points per game over their last three outings.
WEEK 14 PPR GRADES: Running back Wide receiver Tight end
WR: A.J. Brown, Titans @ Raiders ($ 5,400)
For the GPP series, I’ll start by stacking a three-person Titans with Tannehill and Derrick Henry. I don’t mind playing Tannehill on my own, but in big tournaments I want to associate him with Brown, who has proven to be the most reliable Titans player.
WR: Julio Jones, Falcons vs. Panthers ($ 7,800)
Jones is expected to return to the lineup this week after missing the race near the Saints. Jones should go extremely low, despite being very good at home with the Panthers. Jones is another player due to some positive rebounding and the point-per-dollar rebound is among the best on the plate.
TE: George Kittle, 49ers @ Saints ($ 6,700)
Kittle is priced at $ 6,700 for FanDuel this week and makes a good leverage game by Jack Doyle, who is at a similar price and will probably be superior. Kittle is coming off a rough game against the Ravens, but the conditions in this matchup were not created to pass either. Expect a rebound for the entire 49ers offense as they head to New Orleans to face the Saints at the Superdome.
FLEX: Derrick Henry, Titans @ Raiders ($ 9,100)
While Henry does not get enough passes to make him an excellent playmaker with Tannehill, he will still have enough ground to meet salary expectations if he enters the endzone.
D / ST: Pittsburgh Steelers @ Cardinals ($ 4,300)
The Steelers have been one of the best defenses in football in recent weeks, and a coaching general in a racing offense should not slow them down.
