FanDuel Week 5 Freeroll Contest: Looking for Value

We're continuing our weekly $500 freerolls 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.

A couple of weeks ago we debuted a new tool 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.

W5 FanDuel

Let's take a look at the top 5 values at each position...


1. Curtis Painter ($398)
3. Cam Newton ($410)
4. Aaron Rodgers ($410)
5. Michael Vick ($422)
There are a couple of undependable options in Painter and Jackson along with three "studs" in Newton, Rodgers and Vick. Note that Mark Sanchez (who has a matchup with a very bad Patriots pass defense) also chimes in at $422. 


1. Fred Jackson ($411)
2. Arian Foster ($460)
3. Ryan Mathews ($461)
4. Ahmad Bradshaw ($461)
5. Jahvid Best ($472)
Jackson looks like a no-brainer start against an Eagles defense that has given up a ton of fantasy points to opposing RBs this season. Foster has a terrific matchup with poor Raiders rush defense. Bradshaw won't have Brandon Jacobs vulturing any carries this week, so he's a nice play as well.


1. Santonio Holmes ($461)
2. Jeremy Maclin ($470)
4. Julio Jones ($476)
5. Steve Smith ($486)
Holmes, Maclin and Jones all represent excellent value at the $7000 price point (or less). This week, WR looks like a spot to focus on value instead of studs.


1. Owen Daniels ($539)
2. Jimmy Graham ($561)
4. Dustin Keller ($571)
5. Rob Gronkowski ($590)
Daniels looks like a good value, especially with the extra targets he'll see with Andre Johnson sidelined, but keep in mind that the Raiders did a great job of shutting down Gronkowski last week.
