FanDuel Week 12 Slate Breakdown with Cash and GPP Picks
In this space each week, I give my overall FanDuel cash game and tournament strategy thoughts and discuss how players fit into these strategies. By offering a general approach to the week, along with a player pool to consider, you should walk away feeling well-equipped no matter your bankroll strategy or game selection process. For those new to 4for4, we use a proprietary value metric to determine the best values across all positions, rather than the flawed raw point-per-dollar value you usually find across the industry. An extension of our value metric and projections is our GPP Leverage Score, a single value that drives our decisions on which players we can be most confident using in GPPs as it relates to their expected ownership in large-field tournaments.
Main Slate Cash Game Strategy
The shootout of the week is expected to take place in Atlanta where the Falcons host the Buccaneers in a game with a 51-point over/under and a spread of four in favor of Atlanta. Matt Ryan ($7,900) and Jameis Winston ($7,600) have both topped 300 yards passing in a game seven times this season, tied for the league lead. Both defenses rank in the bottom 10 in schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed (aFPA) to quarterbacks but the Falcons have looked like one of the better defenses in the league since their bye week while Tampa Bay ranks last and continues to give up huge games through the air. This correlated passing game provides the top two quarterback values of the week with the nod to Ryan despite the slightly higher price tag.
