Nothing is more nail-biting for our fantasy football expert value top picks than the added excitement of the playoffs!
This afternoon kicks off the playoff action, and combined with tomorrow’s games we have some excellent reasons to plop ourselves down on the couch. During the regular season when we have 25+ teams to choose from for our fantasy football expert value top picks, matchups are a major determining factor when constructing our lineups. There’s definitely merit to playing the matchups this weekend, but what’s most vital is extracting the value from the player pool. With so few teams to choose from, finding an underpriced performer regardless of matchup is crucial to rostering the big-name studs likely to deliver monster outings. With that angle in mind let’s get to the players you should be targeting this afternoon!
Five Guys Fantasy Football Expert Value Top Picks
Colin Kaepernick $11,800 - Coming off three straight monster games, it’s fair to say that Kaepernick has shaken his early-season struggles. The 49ers offense on the whole is running much more efficiently, and their signal caller is priced as the 7th most expensive quarterback. There’s a ton of value to be gained here.
Ryan Mathews $10,800 - Mathews has finally looked the part of stud running back, albeit a few seasons after the initial hoopla was initiated. What matters is what you’ve done for me lately, and he’s been as consistent as anyone in the second half of the year.
Trent Richardson $7,400 - T-Rich is playing better, because let’s be honest, he couldn’t be worse. He represents the cheapest running back value on the weekend.
T.Y. Hilton $9,900 - Being a heavily targeted wideout with a prolific field general is a strong combo. Use Hilton to fill the mid-range gap in your lineups.
James Jones $6,900 - I’ve heard his quarterback is pretty good….In all seriousness, Jones is the top overall value on the site this weekend.
