Week 5 GPP Picks on FanDuel
Matt Ryan @ PIT $8,300
Matt Ryan is looking like the Matt Ryan that won the MVP in 2016. He had 11 touchdowns through his first four games that season and he has 12 while averaging 329 passing yards per game in 2018. He’s racked up over 1,000 passing yards in his last three games. The Falcons’ defense has been awful this season and it’s resulted in mostly shootouts when they hit the field. Ryan has had no choice but to air it out and he has another soft matchup this week despite playing on the road. Matty Ice ranks second in fantasy points per game on FanDuel and the Steelers have allowed the most fantasy points per game to QB’s. Pittsburgh has given up the third most yards per game and the fourth most passing yards per game. No surprise ATL/PIT features the highest total of the week (57.5).
Andy Dalton vs MIA $7,500
Andy Dalton is straight up feeling it and he’s another great play this week. Miami has given up the seventh most yards and passing yards per game. Dalton ranks inside the Top 10 in passing attempts thanks to 40 plus throws in each of his past three games. His 11 touchdowns are the second most in the league and this offense looks really good as they return home with what looks like a healthy Joe Mixon. They have the fifth highest team implied total (28.5).
