FanDuel: Week 12 Fantasy Notes

IMG_7118-fitz-pats-fantasy.jpg

This week, the Jets are hosting the red-hot New England Patriots. The good news: Last week, the Jets had a bye, so they'll be well-rested. Here's the thing: The Pats might not be as scary as you think. Their defense ranks in the middle of the NFL—17th, to be exact—and in front of their home crowd, New York's finest could rack up a goodly number of FanDuel points. The question becomes, which Jet will do the racking?

RYAN FITZPATRICK – QB – $6,800After suffering a knee sprain on Nov. 5, Fitzpatrick returns to the field as the starting QB on Sunday. While Fitz hasn't put up remarkable FanDuel numbers—he hasn't topped 20 FDPs since week two—he can be relied upon to hit the mid-teens, and in a week when you want to add Arizona's high-priced David Johnson to your roster (the Cards are playing Atlanta's brutal run defense), value from the quarterback position is crucial.

MATT FORTÉ – RB - $6,800Quietly, ever so quietly, the first-year Jet is having a monster FanDuel season, averaging 14.9 FDPs, and topping double-digit FDPs in all but three of his games. Over his last four outings, Forté has scored five touchdowns, and has averaged 97-plus yards from scrimmage. Look for coach Todd Bowles to lean on the reliable veteran in this tough divisional game.

ROBBY ANDERSON – WR – $4,700If the Jets are going to snap their two-game losing streak, they'll need contributions from unlikely sources, and Anderson might just be that guy. He's seen exactly six targets in five of his last seven games, and while he's yet to find the end zone, his FanDuel point production seems to amp up every game—last week, he put up a season-high 8.9 FDPs—and hitting paydirt is only a matter of time.
