NFL FANTASY -Week 5 Funny Money


[MUSIC PLAYING] BRAD EVANS: Ah, Funbags, it’s my favorite time of the week. It’s Funny Money time. We are going to attempt to dissect the best buy low option in the Yahoo DFS game here in week number five. Who do you got on your radar this time around? BRANDON FUNSTON: Oh, I love me some Sammie Coates in Pittsburgh. Running number two to Antonio Brown and that passing game, you get the New York Jets. We have seen the Jets have struggled in pass defense, especially the deep ball. They’ve given up seven pass plays of 40-plus yards. That is the most in the league. And guess what? Sammie Coates leads all receivers in 40-yard pass plays. He has had one in every game so far. He is a death of target stud, getting almost 22 yards per catch now. So given the matchup, given the lucky $13 price tag, Sammie Coates is a no-brainer this week in Yahoo DFS. BRAD EVANS: Yeah, I think that’s a great call. My guy? DeAndre Washington, who has been elevated from the backup role, and we presume is going to be thrust into the lead role, with Latavius Murray listed as doubtful. A legitimate three-down back. He’s going to be splitting some time with Jalen Richard, but he’s got great breakaway ability. Number five among all running backs so far this season in breakaway percentage. He’s averaging 6.6 yards per touch as well. And then you look at the matchup. It’s San Diego. It’s a defense that’s allowed, yeah, only 3.6 yards per carry, but the third most fantasy points to the running back position. And Washington, the guy that can do it all. So he could do a lot of damage, not only between the tackles, but also outside as a receiver. Only a crisp Alexander Hamilton is all he’s going to cost you. That is an RB minimum in the daily game. So if you’re looking at somebody who’s going to put you (IMITATING AC/DC) back in black, I think it’s definitely going to be DeAndre Washington this week. All right, that is a wrap on this episode of “Funny Money.” Don’t forget to sign up for $175,000 baller competition. $10 to enter. That’s all it’s going to cost you, and you could win thousands.
