FanDuel Week 7 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 few 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.


Let's take a look at the top 5 values at each position:
1. Matt Moore ($388)
3. Aaron Rodgers ($418)
5. Tim Tebow ($7800)
So there are three $6000 and lower guys (Moore, Whitehurst and Ponder), the uber-stud at $9800 (Rodgers) and a mid-range guy (Tebow) at $7800. Given a very nice matchup with a Marcus Trufant-less Seahawks secondary, Colt McCoy also looks like a nice value at $7500.
1. Earnest Graham ($427)
2. Maurice Morris ($453)
3. Ryan Mathews ($479)
4. DeMarco Murray ($492)
5. Matt Forte ($492)
There are three guys in the top 5 (Graham, Morris and Murray) who are filling in for injured players. Murray has the best matchup (STL), but he also has a pretty good player (Tashard Choice) stealing touches. Jackie Battle and Darren Sproles also check in in the top 10.
1. Calvin Johnson ($474)
2. Greg Little ($484)
3. Eric Decker ($511)
4. Damian Williams ($547)
5. Marques Colston ($550)
Typically there's a lot of value in stud WRs, but Calvin is the only one that shows up in the top 7 this week. Little has a very nice matchup with a shaky Seahawks secondary, while Decker has a similar matchup with the Dolphins, but has Tim Tebow throwing the ball to him.
1. Jimmy Graham ($473)
3. Ed Dickson ($620)
4. Owen Daniels ($629)
5. Lance Kendricks ($656)
So it looks like you should either pony up the $7800 for Graham or go cheap with one of the other options this week. The Colts have not been very kind to TEs this year (allowing the third-fewest Adjusted FP to opposing TEs), but Graham is on fire right now. Pettigrew could see a few extra targets with Jahvid Best absent from the Lions' short passing game.
