FanDuel Championship Weekend: Go Contrarian

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports
Editor's Note: SB Nation's partner FanDuel is running a $1M fantasy football league on Sunday. First place wins $100,000. Join now!

Well, this is the last week for NFL tournaments on FanDuel. It has been a fun year. This is the toughest weekend of the year because there are only 2 games. All of your chalk players are going to be really highly owned. If you are going to take down a large field tournament, you are going to have to find a couple of guys that no one else is on that have big days.

Here are a few theories I will be using:

Figure out which Patriots pass catcher not named Rob Gronkowski or Julian Edelman is going to have a big game. Everyone will be on Gronk and Edelman. Keshawn Martin saw 4 targets last week. He is better at football than Brandon LaFell. He is worth a flier on this small slate.

Owen Daniels is a sneaky play. Everyone will be on Gronk and Greg Olsen. Peyton Manning has been known to give his tight ends a lot of looks in the red zone.

Speaking of Peyton, he will be the lowest own QB on this slate. This is likely his final hurrah. A big game from him could take down a tourney.

Good luck this weekend.
