Outside of Thursday Night Football, 30 NFL teams will be playing on Sunday and Monday, allowing for numerous options in one-week leagues. Last week I suggested several bargain plays such as Ryan Fitzpatrick, Shaun Hill, Tre Mason and Kenny Stills who worked out quite well.
Out of over 80,000 entries, the $175,000 winner of last Sunday’s Million Dollar contest racked up 252.02 points with the following lineup.
Unlike the charade that will envelop college football this weekend, it is sheer wins and losses that will determine the NFL playoff field during the next four weeks.
There will be no 12-person committee sitting behind closed doors to determine who is worthy of championship contention. All division winners (even the NFC South) and two wild cards from each conference get in. Style points and who teams played will not matter.
You see the adverts about selecting your FanDuel lineup in just seconds. Just click Jamaal Charles Le’Veon Bell, Demaryius Thomas, Odell Beckham, et al. But obviously no one can create an All-Star team that will fit under the $60,000 cap. The utilization of value plays is what makes it all work. Fortunately, strategies exist in Week 13 for contestants to take advantage of matchups while allowing cap room for elite players.
After Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker was carted off the field on Sunday with a hip injury, many feared he would be out for the rest of the 2013 season. Locker has now had an MRI and reports suggest he will be out for a minimum of four to six weeks.
I’ve got some more names for you guys who are scrambling to find the sleepers of Week 7. Remember to comment below this post with your questions, and I’ll do my best to get back to each and every one of you.
