Rummerz’ NFL Week 5 Moneyball Money-blitz!

Your weekly NFL DFS tips are in from Rumballz so that you can win yourself some Moneyball dollars!

I’ve broken this column down into three categories; Studs, Value and Match ups. The studs are the backbone of your team, these are the guys that will score you the most points (hopefully!) Value plays are players that are cheap for the amount of points they are capable of putting up for the game. They allow you to fit more studs into your team. Match ups are players that might be playing a team that’s weak in a specific position. They might be a mixture of studs, mid-priced and value. If you’re tossing up between two players, it generally helps to go the one with the better match up. Balancing out these three categories will give you the best chance of scoring well.

Aaron Rodgers, QB, Green Bay, $9,200

Faces Dallas in what’s predicted to be the highest-scoring game of the week.


Odell Beckham Jr, WR, NY Giants, $9,200

He had a couple of injuries last week, but the game score over/under is predicted to be the third-highest, and the Chargers defence gives up the 12th-most fantasy points to WRs.


Le’Veon Bell, RB, Pittsburgh, $8,700

Scored you 32.6 fantasy points last week and meets a team who’s weakness is their run defence.


Todd Gurley, RB, LA Rams, $8,100

TGIII has proven match up-proof so far this season due to his volume of touches. This should continue.


Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle, $8,000

Seattle sorting out their messy RB situation might play in favour of Wilson who could be forced to throw more, or run himself.



Ameer Abdullah, RB, Detroit, $6,400

Scored over 18 fantasy points last week against  Minnesota and has another tough match up on paper this week, although Carolina have allowed almost 200 yards in receptions to RBs.


Bilal Powell, RB, NY Jets, $6,000

As predicted, Powell showed last week what he can do as the number one guy. Monitor Forte’s status over the weekend.


Alex Collins, RB, Baltimore, $5,300

Looks to have taken over from West as the primary RB. Can be value if gets over his fumbling issues.


Will Fuller, WR, Houston, $4,900

Brought the goods last week scoring almost 18 points and is value again this week if this game versus KC turns into a shootout.


Wayne Gallman, RB, NY Giants, $4,500

Another who has surpassed on the depth chart. Put up 12 points last week and meets the Chargers who allowed over 30 fantasy points to Blount/Smallwood.



Dez Bryant, WR, Dallas, $7,900

Meets Green Bay who allowed over 100 yards to Julio Jones and AJ Green, and is a 52-point predicted over/under scoreline.


Dak Prescott, QB, Dallas, $7,700

QBs have had a bit of a tough time against Green Bay, but I think Prescott can buck that trend this week in this predicted high-scoring affair.


Jordy Nelson/Randall Cobb, WR, Green Bay, $8,500/$6,600

With Adams in the concussion protocol and unlikely to suit up, the remaining WR corps are set to take advantage of a defence giving up the 10th-most fantasy points to WRs .


Larry Fitzgerald, WR, Arizona, $6,600

Great match up against the Eagles that are averaging 285 in the air per game to opposition.


Brian Hoyer, QB, San Francisco, $6,500

Indianapolis are ranked 29th in pass defence.
