Fanduel Week 7
Fanduel Week 7 is here! Great news for Dolphins fans this week… Tua is back! This not only gives the Dolphins a better chance at getting their first win since week 3 but it also makes this team more fantasy relevant. Unfortunately, the Dolphins aren’t on the main slate for Fanduel… because they are in a primetime game! Dolphins players can be played in the Sunday night – Monday night slate or on the single-game slate for Sunday night. For this one, we will look at the best Dolphins to play and also other players for the main slate.
Quarterbacks for Fanduel Week 7
With Tua Tagovailoa back behind center for the Dolphins, we could see a whole new offense. This team has struggled to really get it going on the scoreboard without him. Dolphins fans will obviously remember when he broke every Fanduel contest when he threw for 469 yards and six touchdowns as a cheaply priced quarterback. Now we can’t promise that he will do that again but another big performance could be in store for Tua this week against the Steelers Sunday night.
On the main slate we have Dak Prescott returning from injury in a really good matchup against the Detroit Lions. At $7,500 he is an affordable price for a quarterback who normally is a top 5 highest-scoring quarterback each week when healthy. It is not without risk playing Prescott as the Cowboys could try to be cautious with him, but the rewards could pay off big time.
Raheem Mostert is just the sixth highest-priced running back on the two-game slate for Sunday night and Monday night. He has been the go-to back for Miami with at least 14 carries in all three of their last games. Sunday night should be another opportunity to see a similar amount of touches and he is at a fair price. Chase Edmonds has three carries and five total touches combined in the last two weeks. He can probably be left out of lineups unless you want a low-owned play with a little upside.
Jonathan Taylor is returning this week after missing the last two games. He has gotten 20 or more carries in three of the four games he has played in but hasn’t been super effective thus far. At just $8,000 and the eighth most expensive running back on the main slate, he could be worth a shot against Tennessee.
The only fantasy-relevant wide receivers for the Dolphins all year have been Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle. Some weeks they have been some of the best on the main slate. Hill has been more consistent than Waddle but is priced at $1,100 more on Fanduel. On the Sunday-Monday night slate, these two are the highest-priced wide receivers, for good reason. With Tua back, you can fire them up confidently. See other options at WR for Fanduel Week 7 below!
A good value wide receiver this week is Chris Godwin of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Mike Evans and Godwin are options 1A and 1B for Tom Brady. They face the Carolina Panthers this week and I wouldn’t be surprised if they try to run up the score on them. Both Evans and Godwin should be beneficiaries of that but Godwin is just $7,000 while Evans is $7,600 on Fanduel. Godwin has six catches or more and 28 total targets in the past three games he has played in.
Mike Gesicki continues to be the only Dolphins tight end to be fantasy relevant. Last week Gesicki had his best game of the season by far with two touchdowns and 69 yards on six catches. On the Sunday-Monday night slate, he is the second-highest-priced tight end. He definitely could be worth a look on this small two-game slate.
At just $4,800 you can pair Dak Prescott with one of his favorite targets from last season, Dalton Schultz. Schultz was good in week one with Dak but since Dak has been out he has either not played well or not played at all. He could be a great low-priced play here in week 7 of Fanduel action. That is it for the skill positions for Fanduel Week 7, but take a look at the defense now.
Defenses of Week 7 Fanduel
The Dolphins defense has given up a lot of points so far this season but this week could be a good spot for them. Pittsburgh will either have Mitchell Trubisky or rookie Kenny Picket at quarterback, both of whom are almost guaranteed to turn the ball over and get sacked multiple times. As the second-most expensive defense on the Sunday-Monday night slate, you could fire them up.
On the main Fanduel slate the Bengals are one of the cheapest defenses. They play the Atlanta Falcons who are better than advertised but the Bengals could prove that they are a bit overrated. Miami could be a good cheap option to play as your defense. Are you ready for Fanduel Week 7?
