As long as there is football to be played, your fantasy season is never over on FanDuel. Welcome to the weekly Wednesday DFS article where the writers sift through the cheaper players like a metaphorical DFS flea market to try and find you the best deals of the week. They are intended to be high upside plays that we believe can outperform their value and help set your GPP lineups apart from the rest. So check them out. Read our explanations and see if any of us can convince you to take a chance on our pick to round out your Week 16 lineups.

WR Ted Ginn vs ATL, $4800

“What if I told you that you could roster the WR1 for last year’s MVP in a great matchup at home for only $4,800? Would you be interested in that? I know I am! Over the last eight games, Ted Ginn has seen 53 targets whereas Benjamin has only seen 51. I get it though; believe me I get it. ‘There’s no way I can trust Ted Ginn,’ you’re saying. Well, Ginn has caught a TD in four of his last five games. If you looked at his recent stats without knowing it was Ginn, you’d be more excited, I can promise you that. And that’s the thing, it’s all about fighting through the perception here, because the perception of Ginn is the reason he’s priced so low in the first place. Take advantage of this market inefficiency with Ginn facing a Falcons defense giving up the third most pass yards and that is tied for the 2nd most pass TDs allowed. I know I will be.”

QB Tom Savage vs CIN, $6300

“After leading a comeback victory for the Houston Texans with 23 of 36 passes for 260 passing yards against the Jaguars, Tom Savage has claimed the starting gig this coming Sunday. With many years in Bill O’Brien’s offense and having a solid rapport with starting wideout DeAndre Hopkins, this could be the best ‘glory play’ yet for those seeking a sleeper QB this weekend.”
-Brandon Sanders, @brandontsanders

RB Dion Lewis vs NYJ, $5100

“It’s always a tenuous position to put your name next to a New England RB, but we were all wondering if Dion Lewis would be able to return to ’15 form or if he would even get the chance. Looks like he’s back and he didn’t even need targets to have a big day. He’s a big risk, but we call ’em dart throws for a reason.”
-Eric Ludwig, @FF_Gouge

TE Charles Clay vs MIA, $4500

“With double-digit points in each of his last 2 home games, Clay is a lock at the FanDuel minimum. Since the start of October, Clay has had 4 or more targets in every game with 13 targets over his last 2. Now Clay gets a Miami team that ranks in the bottom half in terms of defending the TE position.  With how up and down the TE position has been it just doesn’t make sense to spend any more than the minimum.”
Keaton Denlay, @keatondenlay

WR Allen Robinson vs TEN, $5600

“Listen I get it… as a fellow ARob owner I’m completely fed up with the Jaguars, Blake Bortles and this dumpster dive of a season. But his value has plummeted to dart throw territory with this bottom tier FanDuel price. Robinson had 15 targets last time these teams played and the Titans rank 29th against the pass. Bortles and company could be in ultimate DGAF mode and this present an awesome end of the year opportunity to pepper Robinson with targets. You could get disappointed as the down-the-field looks simply have not been there this year. But I’m willing to throw the dart in GPPs one more time in this juicy matchup as my third WR.”
-Kyle Borgognoni, @kyle_borg

RB Derrick Henry @JAC, $5300

“Henry is becoming an absolute force in the NFL and the Tennessee Titans know it. They’ve slowly worked him in more and more since he returned from his injury. Per Evan Silva, since their Week 13 bye Henry has 7 red-zone carries compared to DeMarco Murray’s 3. Last week when he scored 2 touchdowns, he had 5 red-zone carries. How many did Murray have last week? 0. Over his last 3 weeks he’s averaged 53 rushing yards a game and scored 3 touchdowns in that span. He takes on Jacksonville who’s been a decent run defense but have given up 5 rushing touchdowns in their last 4 games. While his ceiling is obviously capped being the backup, I think he finds the end zone once again and could be a cheap option to give you flexibility in your salary cap.”

WR Robby Anderson @NE, $5500

“What’s that? Being Bryce Petty’s favorite target isn’t enough for you? Anderson has scored 14 or more fantasy points in 3 straight games. I have a hunch the Jets will be playing from behind in this one, probably about 3 minutes into the 1st quarter (and that’s if they get the kickoff), and that means they will be throwing a ton. New England can’t risk putting lesser CBs on Brandon Marshall and that should leave a lot of room for Anderson.”
-Ryan Weisse, @TheFantasyFive

WR Chris Hogan vs NYJ, $5300

To me, all contributing players in the New England offense are in play for GPP this week. The Jets have seemingly thrown in the towel on the defensive side of the ball, not that they were doing very well before, especially against the deep ball. They got torched by Matt Moore last week so just imagine what Brady could do to them. If you couple that with the fact that Hogan, since returning from his back injury, has established himself as a perennial deep threat, then it shouldn’t be hard to see why I like his upside.
