Each Friday, FindBet will preview the week's DFS slate, highlighting players that are priced well on FanDuel, as well as some contrarian plays that can push your team to the top of the leader board.

Most NFL FanDuel games have you putting a team together with players from a certain slate of games. It could be just Sunday 1:00 PM games or it could be every game that is slated for the week.

Once the last game that has eligible players is over, the final payouts are made according to how many fantasy points each team scored. Each player is worth a certain dollar amount, and you have a cap of $60,000 to build your team with. You have to have 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 FLEX (RB, WR, or TE) and 1 DEF.

The general scoring rules include (6) points for each rushing and receiving touchdown, (4) points for each passing touchdown, (0.1) points for each rushing and receiving yard gained, (0.04) points for each passing yard, and also (0.5) points for each reception. There are other scoring opportunities for defenses. You can see the entire breakdown on FanDuel. Let's take a look at players we like this week.

Players to Target:

Jared Goff (QB) - $7400

Goff isn't on most radars every week, but this week is a good week to take a chance on a lower tier QB going against one of the worst NFL pass defenses the NFL has ever seen. I think you can get good production from him and spend money elsewhere.

Nick Chubb (RB) - $8200

Chubb is on track to return this week against Houston, and should regain his 15-18 touch form against a lower tier run defense in Houston.


Aaron Jones (RB) - $8800

Jones has had some extra time to recover after the Packers Week 9 TNF win over the 49ers. He looked good in that game and with the extra rest should be in good shape this week.

Antonio Gibson (RB) - $6100

The Lions run defense is exploitable, but with WAS starting their 3rd QB of the year, Gibson should get plenty of touches,

JuJu Smith-Schuster (WR) - $6400

The Steelers have a great match up against a Bengals defense that has given up a ton of points this year. JuJu seems to have regained Ben Reothlisberger's attention the past couple of weeks.

Cooper Kupp (WR) - $7700

Kupp has been a disappointment this year in regards to overall production. I like his chances though this week going against the Seahawks.


John Brown (WR) - $5600

Brown is a sneaky sleeper pick this week in what looks to be another high scoring game with the Cardinals. Stefon Diggs will most likely be shadowed by Patrick Peterson, leaving plenty of work for Brown.

Dallas Goedert (TE) - $5800

Goedert had an extra week to continue healing after the Eagles Week 9 bye. He's locked in as a TE1 in that offense at a really nice price this week.


Detroit Lions (DEF) - $3900

A great spot start for the Lions going against WAS this week. That money saved helped us target another stud at RB.

Paul George grabbing a rebound in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals

In a must win game for the Los Angeles Clippers, Paul George was finally able to look like the best player on the floor in a playoff game.

After a slow start, George poured it on in the second half on his way to a game high 41 points in Game 5. The performance elevated the Clippers over strong outings from the likes of Devin Booker and Chris Paul as L.A. outlasted Phoenix 116-102.

The Clippers don't have much time to bask in their win however as they have to turn around and play two more elimination games just to make it out of the West. The Suns jumped out to a 3-1 series lead as Los Angeles struggled to find their identity without Kawhi Leonard. If the Clippers are to stave off elimination any longer, George has to continue this level of play.

Ben Simmons disappointed in the playoffs this season

Following a Game 7 loss to the Atlanta Hawks, the Philadelphia 76ers and coach, Doc Rivers, are questioning if Ben Simmons is the right guy to be running their offense through moving forward.

Offense being the key word here.

Simmons is an all-world defender possessing the ability to guard virtually any opponent on the court from the perimeter to the rim. But it was his lack of offensive help throughout this playoff season that stood out beyond any accomplishments this year. Simmons joined Rudy Gobert as unanimous selections for the NBA's All-Defensive First Team this year and also finished fifth in the NBA in assists per game with 8.8 per contest.

The Lakers looked lost in the Valley

The Phoenix Suns are just a win away from sending LeBron James home in the first round of the playoffs for the first time in the King's illustrious career.

After stating that "These shoulders were built for a reason," James referring to facing the challenge of taking on added responsibilities after Anthony Davis was ruled out for Game 5, the Lakers and LeBron disappointed in a big way Tuesday night. L.A. started off hot jumping out to a 10-5 lead behind a couple shots from James and a three from Davis' replacement Markieff Morris. But it didn't take long for the wheels to completely fall off for the defending champion Lakers as they spent most of the first half trying to remember how basketball works.

Two numbers stick out in the Game 5 loss for the Lakers and those are 34.5 and 12. Los Angeles shot 34.5% from the field on Tuesday night and were minus 12 in turnover ratio. No matter who's on your team, if you can't shoot and you can't protect the ball, the outcome is already determined.

The Suns weren't simply beneficiaries of a poor performance however as the Suns put it on the Lakers early and often and they never let their foot off the pedal for 48 minutes. Phoenix ended with 15 more assists, had seven more combined steals and blocks, and outscored L.A. in the paint by 12 points. Devin Booker and Cameron Payne were spectacular and they seemed to hit big shots every time the Lakers appeared to threaten a comeback. Mikal Bridges was effective on both sides of the ball adding three steals and two blocks to help electrify his team with the defensive effort.
