FanDuel is the go-to spot for fantasy sports games, so find out how you can get in the game with their $300,000 weekend contest. Go head to head with fellow fantasy sports players, or enter your squad in a tournament to see how your team stacks up.

When building a fantasy football team for this week’s $300,000 NFL Bomb, it’s important to identify high-upside players in opportunistic situations. Games that pit explosive offenses against each other force aggressive playcalling and generate the most fantasy production. If the two teams are evenly matched, it’s even more likely they will continue with the aggressive offense through the fourth quarter. Use weekly point spreads and game totals to help target players from shootouts each week.

Here are the games you should look to target to win the $300,000 Week 5 NFL Bomb:

Detroit at Green Bay (-7) Total 53.5

Both of these teams rely on the pass to move the ball, and both teams struggle to defend the pass. The quarterbacks are in play here, as are all of their targets. 

Sleeper Play: Jermicheal Finley is a sneaky value at tight end coming back from injury, priced as the 11th most expensive option.

New Orleans at Chicago (PK) Total 48.5

Jay Cutler has the ability to air the ball out when required. The New Orleans offense will force Cutler’s hand in this game. When healthy, Jimmy Graham is a top selection regardless of matchup. Darren Sproles broke out in week 4’s win and will continue to see plenty of targets in space underneath the defense.

Sleeper Play: Because of Brandon Marshall’s dominance, Alshon Jeffrey has flourished in single coverage. Priced as the 37th most expensive WR this week, Jeffery’s value should easily exceed his price.

Philadelphia at New York Giants (-2) Total 54

The Eagles and Giants have surrendered the most points in football this year, coming in at 34.5 and 36.5 points per game respectively. The studs are all quality selections, and there is even value to be had with them. Victor Cruz is the 9th most expensive WR, while Desean Jackson is the 15th.

Sleeper Play: Jason Avant is the minimum price, and is likely Michael Vick’s second option after Jackson. He could have a big week if the Giants roll coverage towards Jackson all day.
