8 NFL FanDuel Studs to Target in Week 5

Greg Olsen leads tight ends in targets, receiving yards, and FanDuel points, and he has a nice matchup with Tampa Bay.

As is the case when playing any sport on FanDuel, it’s imperative to hit on the high-priced players in your lineup. They require a big chunk of your salary, and when paying up for them, you shouldn’t have to worry about them letting your team down.

With this being a weekly article, we’ll start off by looking back at the previous week’s studs to see how we did. The goal is to hit on all of the studs, but it’s very important to look at any misses in order to learn from the experience and adapt our strategy moving forward.

The tight ends were the highlight of last week’s studs. Avoiding Rob Gronkowski – who finished with 1.60 FanDuel points – paid off as our picks of Jordan Reed and Greg Olsen ended the week with the first and second, respectively, in FanDuel scoring among tight ends.

We also had two top-eight wide receivers, and the sixth-best running back.

We rolled the dice with two quarterbacks playing on the road, which ended up backfiring as neither of them were inside the top 10 FanDuel quarterbacks. This was partially due to Cam Newton leaving the game early with a concussion, but we will continue strive for perfection moving forward.

Moving on to Week 5, here are eight studs who should prove to be worthy of their high price tag.
