NFL Daily Fantasy Week 16: Under the Radar Plays at Each Position
NFL daily fantasy season is almost over! If you haven’t started using one or two of the under the radar plays in GPPs, you should get on it. Here are the Week 16 plays.
(salaries via FanDuel)
QB – Case Keenum $5,000
Yup, he’s now on the Houston Texans and Bill O’Brien is leaning toward starting him. The Texans draw the Ravens, which has one of the best rush defenses, but one of the worst pass defenses thanks to a banged up secondary. He should get at least 40 pass attempts.
RB – Matt Asiata $6,100
The Dolphins rush defense has been awful as of late with all their injuries. Asiata is the No. 1 back and has solid PPR value.
WR – Malcom Floyd $5,400
Not the greatest matchup, but Keenan Allen is done for the year. Malcom Floyd should get some more looks in the passing game and is a near-lock to exceed salary, despite an iffy matchup.
TE – Jason Witten $5,300
The Colts are one of the worst teams in the NFL at defending TEs. The Cowboys could also be without DeMarco Murray, which could give Witten a few extra opportunities. Look for a shootout in Dallas.
K – Dan Carpenter $5,000
Carpenter is one of the best kickers in the league, the Bills are -6 and have good weather in Oakland.
DST – Cardinals $5,200
There are plenty of DSTs to like this weekend from a spread and sacks matchup perspective. The Cardinals are 8-point underdogs, but the O/U is only 36.5, the Cardinals’ DST is on fire and the Seahawks actually give up the 12th-most sacks. Arizona also racked up 10 FPTS at Seattle earlier this year.View all posts by Nick Juskewycz
