Ahead of the Pack(er)

With Aaron Rodgers presumably back this weekend, Jordy Nelson is nowhere near as expensive as he should be with his old pal under center.

The Middle(ton) Man

Khris Middleton has increased his scoring every month this season and spot up shooting is the way to beat the Pelicans. Start Middleton with confidence in this matchup.

Poppin’ Bortles

Blake Bortles has averaged 23.4 fantasy points per game over the course of his last three games and he now he will face a defense that has allowed eight touchdowns to opposing quarterbacks in their last four games combined.

Aminu Found Glory

The Warriors like to play small so Al-Farouq Aminu should come in handy for the Trail Blazers to counteract those lineups. He is way too cheap on FantasyDraft tonight.

40 oz. to Faried-dom

The Magic both struggle to keep opponents off the offensive boards and they have allowed the most total points on cut plays this season. Unfortunately for them, Kenneth Faried excels in both aspects, so he should be in line for a monster game.

Bernard: King

Assuming Joe Mixon misses this week with a concussion (and a shoulder injury), Giovani Bernard would draw the start, and he is priced at the bare minimum on FantasyDraft. That would be tough to pass on.

Rondo Boy Fresh

Rajon Rondo has double-doubled in three straight games and will now draw a date with a Nuggets backcourt that ranks 23rd in efficiency. At his mid-tier price point, Rondo is an excellent value.

You’re No Goodwin

The Texans have allowed the seventh most fantasy points per game to wide receivers over the course of the last month and have not fared well against speedy receivers all year long. Consequently, Marquise Goodwin projects as a great play in all formats as he looks to exploit one of the major weaknesses of this defense.

Beauty and the Beas

Michael Beasley is the current number one option on offense for the injury-ridden Knicks and yet he is priced close to the minimum. Fading him on this slate would just be silly.

Ap-Paul-ingly Affordable

At just $14,700, Paul George is a great investment facing a team he has averaged 41.4 fantasy points against in two meetings so far this year.
