FanDuel DFS NFL Week 18 picks and lineup advice: Quarterback

Josh Allen ($8800) is clearly the top pick on the slate this week with a fantastic matchup against the Jets and with the Bills needing a win to lock up the AFC East, look for them to go all out and bury the Jets as they did in their first matchup.

Kyler Murray ($8400) had a solid game last week against a tough Cowboys defense and now gets a much more favorable matchup against the Seahawks. Murray always has QB1 upside with his rushing ability and will be one of my favorite tournament plays this week. With the Cardinals still having a chance at the NFC West title, they will be going all out this week.

Matthew Stafford ($7400) has been really struggling as of late, but the Rams continue to pull out wins despite him sinking our DFS lineups. Now he gets a fantastic matchup against a 49ers secondary that is incredibly depleted. With the Niners likely to hold the Rams’ run game in check, Stafford will have to air it out for better or for worse. People will be hesitant to play him after his recent performances, but I will be rolling him out in a few tournament lineups this week as the Rams fight for the NFC West title.

Tyler Huntley ($7000) and Trey Lance ($7000) are two very similar quarterbacks this week, assuming both of them are starting. Both have shown signs of talent and have rushing ability, but are still priced as low-end quarterbacks. Even though the matchup is not great for either of them, I think there is still plenty of opportunity for both of these quarterbacks to break the slate. Of the two I prefer Huntley since he will not be able to rely on his team’s defense and run game as well as Lance.

Finally, it is ugly but Andy Dalton ($6300) could be worth a look as a huge punt play this week as the starter against a poor Minnesota secondary. I think he has a viable chance at a 250 yard, two-touchdown performance with the Vikings having essentially nothing to play for.
