FanDuel Week 7 GPP Breakdown
Below, I'll focus on players I believe to be strong tournament plays based on multi-touchdown upside and low projected ownership. I won't blurb chalk plays (Carson Palmer, Philip Rivers, Devonta Freeman, Todd Gurley, Larry Fitzgerald, DeAndre Hopkins, John Brown, Martavis Bryant, Stefon Diggs*, Antonio Gates*, Stephen Gostkowski, and the Rams) -- they're all justifiable GPP options -- particularly Freeman and Gurley -- but you won't take home big money by stuffing your entire lineup with chalk. Use chalk plays selectively, a few at a time, filling out the rest of your lineup with a few players likely to be low-owned who have that multi-touchdown upside, allowing you to differentiate from the field and shoot up the leaderboard. As usual, I draw heavily from my Ownership Outlook column, and all the players I highlight below are players I believe you should have more exposure to than the field will. Since who you fade can be just as important as who you play in a GPP, I've also added a "Fades" section at the end where I briefly highlight any highly-owned players that I believe you should have less exposure to than the field, or no exposure to at all.

After playing only 15 percent of the snaps in Week 1, Michael Floyd ($4,900) has gone on to command 20 percent of the Cardinals’ red zone targets since Week 2; just as many as John Brown. Floyd has seen seven or more targets in two of his last three games, and has seen throws 20-plus yards downfield on 38 percent of his routes. Against a Ravens’ defense ranked 31st in WR aFPA, deep threat Floyd could pay off his near minimum-salary in one play. The Ravens have allowed the fourth-most 20-yard passing plays in the league. Floyd was in two percent of lineups on Thursday.
