NFL DFS FanDuel GPP Picks for Week 16 (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.
Note: Remember on FD the pricing for QBs is bunched together so seemingly “expensive” players. I personally like paying up for QBs on this site and prize rushing QBs even more than on DK.
Note: I’m approaching this slate as if Tyreek Hill & Travis Kelce aren’t playing. I certainly would add Patrick Mahomes in if one of them cleared COVID protocols.
Josh Allen @ NE- $8,500
Honestly, I haven’t known what to do with Allen all week long. Everything about the matchup says to “stay away” but sometimes good players just shine through regardless of the “red” you might see in front of you. Last year in Foxboro, he went 324 & four TDs against Uncle Bill. I’ve settled playing Allen + Diggs stacks in GPPs especially if the field is going to fade it. He’s expensive so people won’t want to pay that price tag and the recency bias is all over that Week 13 game where Mac Jones threw the ball a total of three times. Ignore that noise and shoot for the moon with Allen in a tourney.
