Week 10 of the 2015 NFL season is upon us. If you were faithful to Bigplay in week 9, you averaged 22.14 points from our five value plays and hopefully made a nice return on your investment in DraftKings. This week, we venture into a variety of players who could either make or break your lineup. As stated many times before, the only way to achieve fantasy greatness is to look at your roster like an investment. Would you buy stock in a company that has been valued at say 30 a share, knowing that the value is substantially less than advertised? Never, same goes for DFS. Buy low and sell high is the rule to live by in the investing world. In a way it is a comparable rule in fantasy football. You must buy players at a low value and at the correct time to win.
Todd Gurley is a perfect example. There were weeks that Gurley was valued under $5,000 and scored in the top 5 at his position. Now, he is the most expensive running back in week 10 with a salary of $7,300. In week 9, we picked DeAngelo Williams at $5,500 to be our value play at the running back position. He scored 41.5 points and outperformed every player who was priced above him. This week, Williams is $6,500 and is dealing with a minor injury, it is all about timing.
Winning in fantasy football will be impossible if all that comes to mind is, “This guy who is $8,000 will surely score big points for me this week.” No shit, there is a reason behind his price. Winning is about seeing the potential in players who have been overlooked by the masses. Each week, we try to find this potential and share it with the world. So put your faith in us and check back every Tuesday for our Fantasy Football Value Plays of the week. Just remember folks – bet big, win big and best of luck in week 10.

So, instead of sitting at home listening to the new Mumford and Sons album (Hipsters…you know you’re guilty of this) click on the link below, make $100,000, buy a bunch of booze, send us some and then party like Dan Bilzerian every time his attorney calls to inform him that the paternity test came back negative.
