FanDuel Week 15 Contest: Looking for Value

We're continuing our weekly $500 contests at FanDuel -- think you can beat our very own Josh Moore? If so, you'll win a cool $5, maybe more if you score big. All you have to do is assemble your team in FanDuel's weekly salary cap format. Enter now. There is a $2 entry fee this week, but as a handicap Josh will only pick players from SNF and MNF (Ravens, Chargers, Steelers & 49ers).

We debuted a new tool this season for subscribers that identifies the best FanDuel values in any given week. The lower the $/Point, the better the value. Here are the first few rows of the table so you have an idea of what it's all about.

FanDuel 15

Let's take a look at the top 5 values at each position for Week 15:
1. Seneca Wallace ($382)
2. Caleb Hanie ($382)
3. Rex Grossman ($397)
4. Kyle Orton ($400)
5. T.J. Yates ($406)
The top 5 is dominated by bargain QBs this week and none of these options are swelling with dependability. Grossman came through last week and has another nice matchup with the Giants. The last two times he's faced the G-Men, he's thrown for at least 305 yards and two TDs. The first high-priced stud, Aaron Rodgers, checks in at #7 at a value of $428.
1. Felix Jones ($370)
2. Roy Helu ($438)
3. Chris Johnson ($451)
4. Shonn Greene ($453)
5. Reggie Bush ($461)
There are a number of good value, mid-priced RBs this week, as six of the top seven values are between $6400 and $7800. Jones takes over for DeMarco Murray, and Helu has a nice matchup with a shaky Giants defense. Johnson has the Colts, while Greene has been hot of late and has a nice matchup with the Eagles. And don't forget about Kevin Smith at $6400.
1. A.J. Green ($498)
2. Percy Harvin ($500)
4. Jordy Nelson ($504)
5. Damian Williams ($506)
There are several nice values -- Green, Harvin, Nelson -- in the mid-level range, while Thomas and Williams are high-risk, high-reward plays. 
1. Rob Gronkowski ($520)
2. Jimmy Graham ($543)
4. Owen Daniels ($631)
5. Kellen Winslow ($635)
Gronkowski has been money in the bank of late and is once again the best value at TE. Finley is an interesting buy at $6100 now that Greg Jennings is out with a knee injury -- he could see extra looks this week as the Packers de facto WR1. The same goes for Daniels with Andre Johnson sidelined.
