Russell Wilson ($8500) Seahawks @ Ravens – Wilson has quietly been a fantasy beast the past three weeks after taking some criticism prior to that due to his poor play. He has thrown 11 touchdowns with no interceptions the past three games and continues to add bonus points with his feet. The Seahawks will travel to Baltimore to take on a battered and bruised Ravens defense that has been bleeding fantasy points to every position this season. Russell’s worst game the past three equaled 25.4 fanduel points and I don’t think he will do worse than that Sunday. I know his price is near the top at the position but I don’t think it matters as he will continue to roll this weekend.

Jameis Winston ($7800) Buccaneers vs. Saints – The consistency continues to be there for Winston as his impressive rookie season gets a schedule boost this week. Seeing the Saints opposite him has to give Winston some incredible confidence that he will be able to exploit them anyway he generally feels like. The Saints have allowed the third most points to the quarterback position and just got lit up by Cam Newton. I know Winston is not playing anywhere near the level of Cam but I still think this is the time to use him for daily fantasy. His price is still reasonable and he has an good chance to surpass 20 points against a weak defense. Like Wilson, he also has been effective on the ground and can always give you a short rushing touchdown as well.

Blake Bortles ($7700) Jaguars vs. Colts – Another great thing about daily fantasy is that you can be an equal opportunity player. The Jacksonville Jaguars are a terrible NFL team and one that very little people actually pay attention to. Most would probably be shocked to know that Blake Bortles has more passing touchdowns this season than Aaron Rodgers. Coming off a five touchdown performance against the Titans, Bortles should continue to produce big numbers against a terrible Indy secondary. The Colts season and their defense has been a major disappointment and Bortles should be able to have his way with a price tag that is still well below some of the more “elite” quarterbacks in fantasy.

Others I Like – Tyrod Taylor ($7500), Ryan Fitzpatrick ($7800), Cam Newton ($9200)
