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.
Browns are hopeful RB Nick Chubb can return next Sunday, per @RapSheet https://t.co/LPNaXho295— B/R Gridiron (@B/R Gridiron)1604848932.0
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.

Unless you're the Pittsburgh Steelers, chances are your team is still uncertain about making the playoffs.
The Packers lost, yet the Saints won. The Seahawks won, but so did the Rams. The NFC is in a frenzy, while the Steelers sit atop the AFC waiting for everyone else to catch up. With only five weeks left, the playoff picture is a little fuzzy, but it clarifies with each game.
Likewise, fantasy playoffs are just on the horizon, and unless you're undefeated, there's a strong chance you're still clamoring for a spot.
If you need to make some moves for a playoff berth, here are some suggestions in this week's drops, swaps and shops.
Note: For ESPN Leagues, all public leagues must submit trades before the trade deadline on Wednesday, November 25th at 12 ET. Rules vary within leagues, but this could be your last week for swaps.
As Ferris Bueller might say: The world of sports moves pretty fast; if you don't stop and look around at least once a week, you could miss it.
Here we'll review what you might have missed in the past week all in one place. Why spend hours scrolling through Twitter to catch up on the news you want? We've already done that for you, so remember to check back every Monday to get your dose of weekly sports review.
Taysom Hill, Andy Dalton, and P.J. Walker all lead their teams to Week 11 victories filling in for injured starting QBs. Cleveland moved ahead of the Ravens in the AFC North with their win over the Eagles while Baltimore fell to the Titans. The Steelers continued to roll and now sit at 10-0 atop the NFL. The Colts outlasted the Packers in an overtime thriller as Indianapolis is now positioning themselves as a team nobody wants to see come playoff time as they boast the best defense in the NFL.
Joe Burrow was injured in the Bengals' game against Washington and he miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury. This should make Justin Herbert the odds on favorite to win Rookie of the Year if you're interested in a futures bet.
At this point, I may never bet on the NFC West again.
Week 10 Vibe Check (2-2)
At this point, I may never bet on the NFC West again. After losing to the Rams last week, Seattle turned around and beat the Cardinals on Thursday night. Every matchup in that division is a heavyweight bout and it's hard to justify betting on one when they can all throw a haymaker at any time. Meanwhile, the Bengals weren't ready for a D like the Steelers and the QB of the future looked stuck in the present reality for the time being.
As for our wins, in a shocking turn of events, betting against the Chargers WORKED! Or, perhaps, I should say betting on the Dolphins worked. Brian Flores looks more and more like he was the true key to the Patriots defensive success in recent years. He took on two NFC teams back to back and cruised against the poor, befuddled Chargers. Tua coming into his own has certainly helped, as well.
Brandon Aiyuk tallied a whopping seven catches down in New Orleans, even as the 49ers completely sputtered and blew a chance to upset a Drew Brees-less Saints. This continues a month long streak of calling player props, which is almost certain to end this week after pointing out its existence. *Fingers crossed* *No jinx* *Reverse jinx*
