Fan Duel.com Fantasy Football Scoring
FanDuel uses a Standard Fantasy Football Scoring system and a Salary Cap Format for all their NFL fantasy contests.
Each individual player has a set salary. These salaries will vary week by week as the player values increase and decrease as the season unfolds.
Once the first NFL contests are posted on any week, the salaries posted will stay the same, even if players are ruled out and their back ups value greatly increases.
Fan Duel uses STATS, Rotowire and the FSTA for scoring stats, player news, player rankings and salary cap updates.
Top QB and RB salaries are in the $9400 to $10,000 range, Top WR’s $8000 to $8500, Top TE’s $$7300 to $7600, Kickers and Defenses average about $5200 (min.$5000).
Minimum values for all position players range from $3000 to $3500
Player salaries are not out of line, you can field a very good team with the standard $60K Cap.
Your 9 man starting roster will have a average player salary of $6667.
Check out the results of a $1,500,000 Sunday Million to see a winning line up.
The secret to winning Salary Cap Contests is to take advantage of weekly NFL game match-ups, player grudges and 2nd or 3rd string players taking advantage of starter injuries and performance issues.
