FantasyFeud Week 5 Values & Top Plays
Welcome to Week 6. We’re still in the thick of bye season, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have a myriad of options this week. This is a bit of a strange week in that there aren’t many elite players standing out as must-plays (at least in my opinion), but there are quite a few mid-range (and even low-range) values that are standing out as cash game options. As always, let’s see if we can find the pricing glitches in the matrix in order to field that winning lineup.

Editor's Note: The 4for4 Championship is still going strong in Week 5 - and now we're rolling out something special! This week's tournament still awards 5 Championship seats and $7,000 in cash prizes, but in Week 5 you can enter for only $5 (instead of $10) and you can also win a FREE VIP TRIP to Las Vegas for the World Fantasy Football Championship Event in December! The trip will include a hotel room and round trip flight, as well as access to FanDuel's exclusive parties the weekend of the event. This will be the weekend of a lifetime, and your best chance to get there is in the 4for4 Championship. Draft a team now!

Step 1: Jameis Winston ($109,400) vs. JAC
I can’t deny that Winston has been a turnover machine this season (and probably will continue to be), but he also comes at an extremely cheap price this week and is coming off his highest yardage total in his short NFL career. While the Jaguars aren’t an easy matchup for Winston, he finally has two healthy weapons in Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson and (in my opinion) makes for a better (and higher upside) flier than similarly-priced players like Brandon Weeden and Kirk Cousins.
