FanDuel Picks Week 15: NFL DFS Lineup Tips for Daily Fantasy Football GPP Tournaments

Since we’re playing GPP tournaments, we’re rolling the dice and building our Week 15 FanDuel tournament lineup around Texans rookie quarterback Davis Mills. It’s priced low at $ 6,800, and the savings allow us to put together an NFL DFS lineup that we are excited about from top to bottom. This alignment obviously presents a lot of boom or bust prospects, but we’re targeting the moon here and the only possession of first place.

Before we get into this week’s lineups, here are the basic rules for FanDuel contests. The punctuation is pretty standard, and the only notable settings are Four-point pass TD Y Semicircular PPR.

FanDuel Picks Week 15: NFL DFS lineup for GPP tournaments

Sunday main board, $ 60,000 budget, no more than four players on one team

QB Davis Mills, Texans @ Jaguars ($ 6,800). Mills has played better in recent weeks, scoring at least 18.0 FanDuel points in three of his last six contests. The Jaguars are one of the worst defenders in the league, so Mills will be in a good position to put in a decent fantasy effort and get the lineup in position to finish on the green.

RB James Conner, Cardinals @ Lions ($ 8,300). Conner may give up a few catches to Chase Edmonds, but he’s been as steady as they come with just three games under 10.0 points from FD. The Cardinals are heavily favored against the Lions, so the script for the game suggests we could see a lot of runs and touchdowns from the Cardinals on Sunday.

RB Antonio Gibson, American Football Team @ Eagles ($ 6,900). Gibson disappointed a lot of people with a poor showing in Week 14, but we’ll get back in the pot in what should be a better matchup. The Eagles have been generous against running backs in terms of allowing FanDuel production, and Gibson is still just one game away from a four-game stretch in which he scored at least 19.6 FD points three times.

WR Diontae Johnson, Steelers vs. Titans ($ 7,200). Goals continue to flow in Johnson’s path. His 10 against the Vikings last Thursday night marked the fifth time in a row that he received double-digit looks. As long as you’re shooting targets and reasonably priced, we’ll be keen to name you our WR1 in these lineups.

Field marshal | Running backwards | Wide receiver | Tight end | D / ST | Kicker

WR Jaylen Waddle, Dolphins vs. Jets ($ 7,100). Waddle may not be close to being a finished product – we don’t expect him to operate as a short-range receiver for much of his career – but he’s finding his place in the NFL nonetheless. He has seen double-digit goals in each of his last two games and scored in double digits in four of his last five. The Jets defense ranks last in the DVOA pass, so Waddle shouldn’t have much trouble generating another solid performance.

WR Amon-Ra St. Brown, Lions vs. Cardinals ($ 5,900). St. Brown looks like he’s developing strong chemistry with quarterback Jared Goff. The rookie has won 12 goals in each of the last two games and also scored his first career touchdown in that span. Even if main target TJ Hockenson returns from a hand injury, St. Brown has probably done enough to keep his position high within the Lions’ pecking order for catching passes.

Field marshal | Running backwards | Wide receiver | Tight end | D / ST | Kicker

TE George Kittle, 49ers vs. Falcons ($ 7,800). Kittle is on fire right now, so he’s likely to be a popular pick on Sunday, but sometimes it’s better to go the “KISS” method and accept the easy answers. He’s scored 62.7 FD points on 27 goals over the past two weeks, and he should be able to find more success against poor Falcons defense.

FLEX (RB) Rashaad Penny, Seahawks @ Rams ($ 6,100). Penny has played well at times when he’s been healthy, but health has been an elusive attribute for him throughout his NFL career. He’s in one piece for now, though, and we’re going to turn to him in what could turn out to be a fun back-and-forth showdown in the NFC West. A replay of your 26.3-point performance may be difficult to pull off, but another healthy workload should be on the cards.

DEF Texans @ Jaguars ($ 4,000). This is 100 percent due to the ineptitude of the Jaguars and messing with a team that appears to be falling apart. Despite all the struggles the Texans are in 10th in defensive DVOA, so they should be able to cause trouble for the hapless Jags, who averaged 9.1 points in the past seven weeks.
