FanDuel GPP Value Plays – Week 4

Each week I’ll explore cheap players whose FanDuel price does not match the ceiling they offer, making them GPP value plays. In FanDuel GPPs, I recommend cheap players who will offer at least 3x value, providing salary relief for your remaining roster spots. In general, I will be looking at quarterbacks priced below $7,500, running backs and wide receivers below $6,500, and tight ends below $5,500. It is important to remember that these value recommendations are for GPPs (and not cash games), so we’re aiming for a hit rate above 20 percent.

Week 3 Review

  • In order to keep myself accountable, I will be keeping score of my past results. While 3x is the gold standard for reaching GPP value, each week is different – sometimes requiring a higher or lower average multiplier. My score each week is based on a formula that factors in the multiplier needed to reach the cash line in FanDuel’s Sunday Million contest and an adjustment that accounts for cheaper plays needing a higher multiplier to reach value.1
  •  Week 3 Results:2 Total = 4/7 (57%), QB = 1/1, RB = 1/2, WR = 1/3, TE = 1/1.
  • Year-to-Date Results:
    • Total = 10/21 (48%)
    • QB = 2/3
    • RB = 4/6
    • WR = 2/9
    • TE = 2/3

Week 3 GPP value plays

  1. value play success = (6667/Player’s Salary)^1/3 * multiplier  (back)
  2. Cash line for week 3 = 112.18 points, value success formula = (6667/Player’s Salary)^1/3 * 1.9  (back)
