Let’s find out who are the winners and losers in DFS for Week 18!

Jonathan Taylor – ($9,300 DK, $10,200 FD)  – Taylor is still at the price tag of $10k on FanDuel. He has another great matchup this week versus the Jaguars. They rank 18th in giving up fantasy points to running backs this season. You just know that with a must-win game for the Bills that they will feed Taylor early and often in this game. He’s a must-start this week.

Nick Chubb – BEWARE –  ($7,900 DK, $8,200 FD) – The Browns have nothing to play for. Therefore, I’m surprised that they are playing Chubb. Of course, the Bengals aren’t starting their top players so who knows where this game flow goes. Either way, I’m staying away from Chubb as he’s one of the more expensive backs this week. He’s just not worth the price tag.

Best Value – RB – D’Onta Foreman – ($5,700 DK, $6,900 FD) – There may be cheaper backs this week, but Foreman has been getting over 20 carries per week over the past couple of weeks. In fact, last week, he scored 22.2 fantasy points. This week, he gets the Houston Texans who rank 30th in giving up fantasy points to running backs. He’s a great value in this matchup.

Best Mid-Value – RB – AJ Dillon – ($6,200 DK, $7,300 FD) – The Packers gain nothing this week, win or lose. Therefore, we expect the starters to play some, but probably only a quarter. So, that leaves plenty of opportunities for AJ Dillon to run over the Lions’ run defense that ranks 29th in giving up fantasy points to running backs. He’s an excellent value as well.

Overall, this week we are seeing some potentially huge values but a few people to stay away from that we normally give a full endorsement.
