While Thursday night was quite the debacle (Andy Dalton anyone?) there's still a chance to make some money this weekend on FanDuel.

QB

Eli Manning (7500)  Manning has had two god fantasy weeks in a row, but is going on the road to Seattle.  He will be little used in tournaments and cash games, and for good reason.  The fact that Rueben Randle has not stepped up and made any plays for Manning makes it tough to start him even if the Giants had a better match up this weekend.

Aaron Rodgers (9900)  Rodgers gets the Chicago Bears at home as the Packers come off of their bye week.  The Packers do have some issues on the interior of their o-line as both starting guards are questionable, but Rodgers is a very nice cash game play as well as an interesting GPP play if you team him with multiple Packer receivers.

Matt Ryan (7800)  Ryan gets Tampa Bay coming off the Flacons bye week.  Matty Ice has had an up and down fantasy year, but clearly he needs a healthy Julio Jones to hit his true potential.  This week Julio Jones practiced in full and has said his ankle is finally 100%.  That bodes well for stacking Matt Ryan and Julio in your lineups.

Mark Sanchez (6600)  Sanchez takes over as the Eagles starter for the injured Nick Foles.  Sanchez's price is very interesting for me in lineupos where I want to spend at running back and wide receiver.  I believe Foles was more a product of the Chip Kelly Offense and I think Sanchez can be an adequate replacement.  The price is nice, but you should know a lot of people will be playing him.

RB

DeMarco Murray (9300)  Murray faces the Jacksonville Jaguars in London this week.  With Tony Romo expected to play this week it should keep the Jaguars from playing nine in the box.  I like murray as a cash game play this week and will gladly pay for him if I can afford it.

LeSean McCoy (7700)  McCoy has only scored one touchdown this year.  One!  That's amazing, especially considering that the Eagles are still one of the highest scoring teams in the league.  This week he gets a Carolina Panthers run defense that has been picked apart this season.  I really like the match up and believe he will finally get in the end zone.

Ronnie Hillman (7400)  The Broncos get the Oakland Raiders as they come off their tough loss to the Patriots.  I expect game flow to help Hillman's numbers this week as the Broncos quickly get out in front and use their running game to ride it out.

Bobby Rainey (6700)  Rainey gets another week as the Buccaneers starter at RB.  He played well last week, but didn't see much action in the second half as the Buccaneers threw the ball a little more.  With rookie Charles Sims expected to be active Rainey will lose some touches, but Sims isn't ready for a big work load yet.

Andre Williams (6700)  Williams is cheap, but not cheap enough for me to take a chance on him this week.  The Seahawks defense at home still has the advantage especially if both safeties are in the lineup.

WR

Antonio Brown (9100)  Brown has been unbelievable this season.  Absolute money in the bank, but everyone knows that.  With him being the highest priced wide receiver on this week's slate and Big Ben not playing as well on the road, I may look elsewhere.

Jordy Nelson (8500)  Nelson will be in every one of my lineups where I have Rodgers.  Nelson is the forgotten stud at times and coming off the bye week he should be on your radar.

Julio Jones (8000)  This is a very low price for the upside that Julio Jones has.  Jones hasn't produced since week two of the season, but that has a lot to do with an ankle injury that's taken away a lot of his explosiveness.  He is reportedly healthy this week so plug him in.

Brandon Marshall (7300) Marshall has been a big disappointment this season, but it all stems from the high ankle sprain that he suffered early in the season.   The bye week was huge for him and I am excited to see if he's healthy now.  The price is right for Marshall this week.

Kelvin Benjamin (6700) Benjamin has struggled the last few weeks with drops and consistency, which is normal for a rookie.  This week he gets an Eagles secondary that can be exploited and will be involved in a game that should be high scoring.  I really like his price on a rival web site, but I can make a case for playing him at this price in this match up.

Odell Beckham Jr. (6600) Beckham Jr. has played really well the last few weeks, but this might not be the week to jump on the band wagon.  I will use him a ton the rest of the season, but today I will be looking elsewhere in his price range.

Cheap WR

Justin Hunter (5400) Hunter was everyone's favorite breakout for season long fantasy, but it hasn't happened yet.  With Mettenbereger taking over at QB Hunter saw 10 targets last time out.  This week he has a nice match up against a banged up secondary and is a nice play where you have to punt.

James Jones (5400) Jones was blanketed last week by the Seahawks and David Carr hasn't been very efficient getting him the ball the last few weeks.  Jones still has a good chance to score a TD, especially if (and when) the Raiders fall behind the Broncos.  He could get some nice points in mop up duty.

Davante Adams (5200) Adams is the lowest priced wide receiver that I would even think about playing this week.  He has taken over the wide receiver three role in Green Bay and if Rodgers has a big day, then Adams should see some of the production.

Good luck this week folks, and check back Monday for my season long Waiver Wire Advice.
