Welcome back for another week of Daily Fantasy Football.

With Week 1 in the books, I want to share one thing with everyone. DO NOT CHASE LAST WEEKS STATS.

Now I know this is easier said then done. The reason why I say this is that I look at Daily Fantasy Sports like the stock exchange, you want to buy low and sell high.

Players that had great Week 1 performances last week most likely will not repeat and can be overpriced. There are exceptions of course and I hope this article helps.

Note: all prices are based on Fanduel pricing

 

Week 2 Daily Fantasy Football: 3 FanDuel Value Plays at WR

We handpicked a threesome for your Daily Fantasy Football pleasure! These three wide receivers are good plays considering their prices and their matchups in Week 2.

 

Jordan Matthews, Philadelphia Eagles vs. Dallas Cowboys ($7,000)

Jordan Matthews gets to face off against the weak Dallas Cowboys secondary. Matthews saw 13 targets Monday night and if head coach Chip Kelly challenged a close score late in the game in Week 1, Matthews probably would have been credited with a touchdown. Between the amount of targets and the fast pace play of the Eagles offense, I can see Matthews having another great game this week and easily justifying his price.

John Brown, Arizona Cardinals  at Chicago Bears ($6,200)

The Cardinals travel to Chicago this week without top Running Back Andre Ellington, who usually catches some passes out of the backfield. This is good news for John Brown who had seven targets in Week 1 and caught a touchdown. Brown clearly looked like one of Carson Palmer`s top targets last week and I could see Palmer going back to the well. The Chicago Bears secondary is nothing to write home about.

James Jones, Green Bay Packers vs. Seattle Seahawks ($5,400)

It looks like James Jones and Aaron Rodgers picked up right where they left off in 2012. Jones caught all four targets for 51 yards and two touchdowns. If you factor in that he wasn’t even on the roster two weeks ago, Rodgers still looked for Jones in the red zone. Randall Cobb looked like his shoulder was still bothering him and that leads me to believe that Jones could have another big game.

 

3 Wide Receivers to Avoid

This trio of quarterbacks are players you should stay away from for the upcoming weekend of NFL action. Some of these players might be worth a contrarian play in a GPP tournament, but for the most part, they’re players to avoid.

Keenan Allen, San Diego Chargers at Cincinnati Bengals ($8,200)

In Week 1, Allen grabbed 15 receptions for 166 yards. Rivers targeted Allen 17 times and faced a weak Lions secondary. Allen will be facing a much tougher Bengals secondary this week, so don’t expect a repeat performance out of Allen.

Amari Cooper,  Oakland Raiders vs. Baltimore Ravens ($6,700)

After a flashy preseason, this lead a lot of people to assume Cooper could be in for a big season. Welcome to the NFL Mr. Cooper! Cooper faced off against a tough Bengals secondary in Week 1 and he put up a shaky stat line (five receptions for 47 yards). that was helped a lot by garbage time in a blowout. Now Cooper gets to face off against a Ravens defense coming off a tough loss in Denver. Cooper is going to face off against a tough CB in Jimmy Smith and not to mention that the Raiders will probably be without Derek Carr.

Nate Washington, Houston Texans at Carolina Panthers ($4,900)

Washington put up a great Week 1 stat line (six receptions for 105 yards). The Texans fell behind early and it lead them to air the ball out. I just can not see the Texans throwing the ball as much as they did last week.

Don’t forget to also use Doug Anderson’s “Fantasy Points Allowed by Position,” where he breaks down the ability of defenses going up against each Fantasy position. The best part is – it breaks it down according to the individual scoring rules on several DFS sites, including FanDuel, DraftKings, FantasyAces, Drafster and FanThrowdown.
