Victiv Week Two Value Plays
Fantasy football contests and freerolls are going off tonight and all weekend at Victiv – we will be paying out $27,000 in free and guaranteed prizes through Monday.
I wrote up an analysis of our value plays just in case you’re having trouble setting your lineups. Also, if you’re new to the game, check out the Victron tab on the contest enter page. It’s a daily fantasy noob’s best friend.
Victiv Value Plays:
Jake Locker ($8900) – Going against the abysmal Cowboys defense. Locker has the ability to make things happen with his legs. Could put up big numbers.
Alfred Morris ($5,800) – Alf averaged 6.5 yards per carry last week against a tough Houston front. At this price point any true feature back represents value.
Shonn Greene ($5,100) – People forget that Shonn Greene is the starting back for the Titans. Greene outplayed his backup Bishop Sankey last week, receiving more than twice Sankey’s workload. Up against the Cowboy’s defense.
Justin Forsett ($3800) – With Ray Rice out of the league, Forsett stands to split the load with Bernard Pierce this week who should also be widely owned. Forsett should be the change of pace back, but the price is right. Thursday games only.
Dez Bryant ($6,600) – Tony Romo looked terrible last week. That being said – Dez is an elite talent and it would be a surprise if the Cowboys don’t try to get him more involved in the offense against the Titans.
T.Y. Hilton ($5,300) – Hilton is a major boom or bust play this week. Going against Philly in what is expected to be a high-scoring affair (over under at 53.5, highest of the week), I think Hilton makes a nice large-field tournament play here.
Delanie Walker ($3,200) – Walker will be one of the most added TE’s in season-long formats having a solid week one showing. Again, going against the Cowboys there should be plenty of points to spread around.
Cardinals ($5,100) – Despite being hampered by injury, Arizona looked tough and ready to play against an above average San Diego offense on Monday night. This week they face the Giants offense that is apparently totally lost. I expect big things.
Texans ($3,500) – Loosing Clowney is a hit, and Carr looked decent in his debut for Oakland. That being said they face a rookie QB on a below average Raiders team and the price is right.
