Week 18 NFL DFS Quarterbacks (QB) Targets For FanDuel & DraftKings

Welcome to the FC Insights Quarterback Targets Article. In this post, we will be breaking down our top options and plays at the QB position for each DFS week of the 2021-2022 NFL DFS season.

Top Plays

Josh Allen ($8,800 FD, $8,100 DK)

Opponent Team Total Opponent Passing Yards Allowed Per Game Opponent Total Passing Touchdowns Allowed Opponent Fantasy Points Allowed Per Game to QBs
Jets 29.75 259.7 26 18.76

I love Josh Allen and think he is one of the top three quarterbacks in the NFL in general and the top quarterback for fantasy due to his ability to his rushing ability. Allen has rushed for 700 yards this season which is third-most in the NFL and has six rushing touchdowns which are also third-most in the NFL at the position. Allen also has over 4,000 yards passing and 34 passing touchdowns. Both of those marks are in the top ten of the NFL as well. If we look at just pure fantasy points we will see that Allen is averaging 26.1 fantasy points per game which is the most at the quarterback position and second-most in the NFL this season. The Jets also set up nicely for Allen as they are one of the best match-ups for quarterbacks in the NFL as they have allowed the fifth-most fantasy points per game this season.

Tom Brady ($8,100 FD, $7,500 DK)

Opponent Team Total Opponent Passing Yards Allowed Per Game Opponent Total Passing Touchdowns Allowed Opponent Fantasy Points Allowed Per Game to QBs
Panthers 25.00 183.9 23 15.60

The Panthers have been an elite pass defense this season and actually shut Mr. Brady down the last time they faced off but I have a good feeling about the GOAT this week. I have a good feeling about Brady this week due to the fact that the Bucs want to win to lock up the second seed in the NFC and if they are going to do it is going to be through the air as though they are dealing with major issues at the receiver position with Chris Godwin done for the year and Antonio Brown being well Antonio Brown they are dealing with even more injuries at the running back position. As of this writing, the only healthy running back for the Bucs is LeVeon Bell and he was not even on the team until last week.

Value Plays

Davis Mills ($6,400 FD, $5,300 DK)

Opponent Team Total Opponent Passing Yards Allowed Per Game Opponent Total Passing Touchdowns Allowed Opponent Fantasy Points Allowed Per Game to QBs
Titans 16.50 242.5 21 16.98

After struggling most of the season the Titans’ pass defense has been really damn good and dare I say elite since their bye week. In those four games, the Titans are allowing just 7.61 fantasy points per game to quarterbacks. While that number is about as low as you are going to ever see for a team during a four-week stretch I also think it is a bit misleading. The reason I say this is due to the fact the Titans have only allowed one passing touchdown during those four games after allowing at least two passing scores in seven of their previous 12 games. The Titans are still also allowing over 220 passing yards per game during this stretch which is around the middle of the pack in the league in that category. Those numbers along with the fact that the Titans haven’t really faced an elite passing attack the past month make me believe that they could be headed for a regression this week against Mills who is a lot better than people might want to give him credit for.

Ben Roethlisberger ($6,700 FD, $5,400 DK)

Opponent Team Total Opponent Passing Yards Allowed Per Game Opponent Total Passing Touchdowns Allowed Opponent Fantasy Points Allowed Per Game to QBs
Ravens 18.25 281.7 30 19.54

I am not a big gut-call guy and prefer to let the numbers do the talking. Well, this week my gut and the numbers are telling me to play Big Ben. My gut is telling me to roster Roethlisberger due to the fact that this is likely his last game in the NFL. Roethlisberger has stated he doesn’t see himself playing past this season and I just feel like the Steelers let Roethlisberger go out with a bang. The Ravens are a perfect match-up to go out with a bang on as they are the worst pass defense in the NFL which brings me to the numbers. The Ravens have allowed the most passing yards per game this season and second-most fantasy points per game to the position. Big Ben also had one of the best games of his season against the Ravens throwing for two scores and producing 19.34 fantasy points.
