NFL DFS FanDuel GPP Picks for Week 14 (Fantasy Football)
Each week I’ll highlight my favorite GPP picks that I have some confidence heading into the weekend to put into my player pools. For more on GPP strategy and the mechanics of it, make sure you listen to our DFS GPP Overview episode. On the Fantasy Footballers DFS Podcast, Betz and myself will dive into a couple of these but this article is intended for DFS Pass subscribers to get the full lay of the land.
Selecting QBs for GPPs is about finding stacking partners that also give you leverage on the field. Remember QB roster percentages are relatively flat. Nevertheless, refer to the FanDuel cash game picks and then add these guys in the mix of players who are contrarian.
Josh Allen @ TB- $8,800
Tom Brady vs BUF- $8,200
As I detailed in the Pace of Play article, this game can go in a lot of different directions and it rests on how Josh Allen and the Buffalo offense responds. What we love is that both teams throw at such a high rate that ceiling for every single player should be elevated. We’ve been mostly staying away from ancillary options like Emmanuel Sanders or Cole Beasley but a Josh Allen with 40+ pass attempts feels like one with QB1 overall upside. Allen is averaging the 6th most EPA per pass attempt and the 5th highest pass rate when trailing. You need a rushing score added to truly pay off his salary as the QB1 on the slate. It’s honestly a bit surprising it’s that high given the Bills are 3.5-point road favorites. Double-stacking with Brady feels like a weekly conversation point. He’s the leading MVP candidate for a reason.
