Eli Manning – $5,600 – I am loading up on the New York Giants/Philadelphia game this week. Both teams have nothing to play for so I would expect the offenses to engage in a shootout. The over/under in Las Vegas is 52.5 points and with the up-tempo pace that Philadelphia’s offense runs combined with the lack of defense on both sides of the field, Manning will meet more than value this week.

Also consider: Matt Ryan – $5,500 – I would build my roster around Atlanta/New Orleans and New York Giants/Philadelphia this weekend.


Devonta Freeman – $7,600 – Ownership level may be through the roof, but so could his numbers this week.

DeAngelo Williams – $7,100 – He has averaged just below 25 points per game in his last five games. I would expect 20-plus points this week against Cleveland. I would lock in Freeman or Williams as one of my running back this week.

James White – $5,000 – White has been a reliable target for Tom Brady out of the backfield. He has scored at least 14 points in five of the last six games.

Top Value Plays: Rashad Jennings – $3,700 – He has had a strong finish to the 2015 campaign and is the lead dog in the New York Giants backfield right now.
