Fantasy Sharks is teaming up with FanDuel for Week 7! Get involved in one of the fastest growing segments in fantasy – daily games! The prize pool continues to grow! Click the link below to sign up and be sure to check out the full breakdown of Week 7 to help you set your lineup.
The entry fee is $25 and first place takes home $25,000!
The standard salary cap is $60,000. The familiar names and studs will put a dent in your salary cap so you will need to find some value picks along the way. This contest includes only the Sunday games so you’ll have until 1 p.m. kickoff when rosters lock to sign up.
Peyton Manning – $10,400 –
Manning drops $400 in price from last week, but still can put a dent in your wallet. I always try to form a lineup with Manning in it first. If I think I can do better, then swap out Manning, save a couple thousand, and get back to work.
Cam Newton – $8,700 –
It is always tough to trust Newton as he has his ups and downs, but he can always score with his legs and that’s a plus in four-point passing touchdown leagues. St. Louis cannot stop the run, as it showed last week, so if Newton can get his legs going, he could have a big day.
Jay Cutler – $7,900 –
Cutler has put up about 20 points in each of the last three weeks. For a quarterback priced under $8,000, that seems like great value to me.
Philip Rivers – $7,600 –
Rivers is a great value play again at this price. He gets to face the worst team in the league in Jacksonville so look for a solid effort.
Nick Foles – $7,200 –
If Foles gets the call in Week 7, he should be considered against Dallas in a potential high-scoring affair. We know the Philadelphia Eagles do not have a defense so they will need to put up points. Foles will not feel the pressure of DeMarcus Ware so he should have some time to throw.
Eli Manning – $6,800 –
If he ever decides to have a big game in your lineup, you should have a great chance to finish in the money. He has averaged just 11 points per game over the last five weeks, but did put up 18 against Philadelphia’s leaky defense. He has struggled in his career against Minnesota, particularly with interceptions. If he limits the interceptions, look for a big night under the lights for Manning.
Worth Your Buck
LeSean McCoy – $9,500 –
McCoy should be featured in a potential high-scoring affair in Philadelphia.
Reggie Bush – $8,600 –
Cincinnati has a solid defense and Bush has had a big game in every other game this season so far (last week was big), but the speed of Bush on the home turf is always appealing.
Matt Forte – $8,500 –
If you can’t afford
, look no further than
against Washington. Forte has been putting up the same solid numbers as he was in the first four weeks, but he didn’t reach the end zone the last two. Throw in a touchdown and he puts up his usual 20-point effort.
Best Plays in the $6,000s
DeAngelo Williams – $6,400 –
The St. Louios Rams cannot stop the run. It is as simple as that. If he doesn’t score from outside the 5-yard line, it will likely be Mike Tolbert or Cam Newton taking the short yardage plunge. However, he definitely has the ability to break a long gain for a score with his speed.
Joseph Randle – $5,500 –
If DeMarco Murray and Lance Dunbar are out, it is Randle that will run the show. A lot of value is offered here against Philadelphia’s defense.
Zac Stacy – $4,900 –
Stacy is at a bargain price again for a starting running back. He rumbled for nearly 80 yards in a tough matchup against Houston. Carolina is not a cakewalk matchup, but I would expect Stacy to pile up around 75 total yards again with a chance for a score.
