Jordy Nelson, WR, Oakland Raiders @ Los Angeles Chargers
DK Price: $4,500
Another player who provides great value in the Raiders @ Chargers matchup is former Packer, Jordy Nelson. Nelson started the season slow but has shown up with a TD in back-to-back weeks while averaging 8 targets per game during that span. Nelson also showed he still has plenty of big game potential in Week 3 when he went for 173 yards against the Dolphins.
This week, Nelson will face a Chargers defense that has allowed the 5th most fantasy points per game to wideouts this season. The Chargers are giving up an average of 2 TD’s per game to the wide receiver position, leaving plenty of room for both Amari Cooper and Jordy Nelson to have a solid day.
Nelson provides great value at $4,500 considering his 15.1 FPPG is right on par with Amari Cooper (15.2 FPPG, $5,500) and even Keenan Allen (15.1 FPPG, $7,800). You get the same upside with Nelson compared to these guys in the exact same game at a fraction of the price.
