Fan Duel Week 3 NFL line up advice

Welcome to Week Three of NFL Fantasy on Fan Duel

Updates will be made as needed leading up to week one kick offs.

Each week I’ll be posting players I am strongly considering for my Fan Duel football line ups each week. I’ll also include QB/WR stacks and injury news you should be watching for possible value priced reserves who may benefit from those situations with extended play time.

The Injuries started to pile up on week 2 in the NFL

Injured Running backs: A Peterson MIN, A Foster MIA, D Martin TB, A Abdulah DET, J Stewart CAR and D Whitehead SD leading the list.

Injured Wide Receivers: D Moncrief IND and D Baldwin SEA.

Injured Quarterbacks: J Cutler CHI and J McCown CLE.

But there is also some good injury news, J Charles KC RB is expected to play (on a limited basis). T Eifort CIN TE is expected to return this week and C Ivory JAX RB is also expected to play.

Week 3 Top Scoring Game Lines:  ATL at NO -3 (54), SD at IND -3 (52), DET at GB -7.5 (48), WAS at NYG -4.5 (46), OAK at TEN -1.5 (47)

Low Scoring Games: CLE at MIA -9.5 (41.5), MIN at CAR -7 (43), SF at SEA -9.5 (40), DEN at CIN -3 (41)

You want to be sure to get as many players from the ATL at NO on Monday Night, OAK at TEN and the SD at IND games into your line ups.

Chicago plays at Dallas on Sunday night and Chicago is a complete mess with defensive injuries and there’s a very good chance that B Hoyer will start at QB for J Cutler (hand). The Dallas DEF looks like a solid play and it could very well be a Prescott, Elliot and Bryant coming out party against a crippled defense.

Cleveland has as much of a mess as Chicago (maybe worse), strongly consider a MIAMI stack of Tannehill/Landry/DEF

Players to consider and their salaries for week 3 on Fan Duel:

QB’s: P Rivers SD 8000, D Prescott DAL 7100, R Tannehill MIA 7400

RB’s: E Elliott DAL 8100, D Murray TEN 7700, M Gordon SD 7100, T Riddick DET 6400,

WR’s: D Byrant DAL 7900, K Benjamin CAR 7800, J Landry MIA, T Benjamin SD 6900, P Dorsett IND 6000, T Sharpe TEN 5800

K: D Bailey DAL 4700, Boswell PIT 4600, Lambo SD 4500

Stacks: Tannehill/Landry MIA 14400, Carr/Cooper OAK 15800, Rivers T Benjamin SD 14900, Prescott/Bryant DAL 15000

Injuries to watch: A Foster MIA RB, R Jennings NYG RB, J Cutler CHI QB

Out: C Coleman CLE WR, J Stewart CAR RB, A Peterson MIN RB, D Moncreif IND WR, D Martin TB RB, A Abdullah DET RB, C McCown CLE QB, K Allen SD WR, RG3 CLE QB, T Romo DAL QB, D Lewis NE RB, B Watson BAL TE, T Bridgewater MIN QB

Suspensions of note: T Brady NE QB, L Bell PIT RB, J Gordon CLE WR, J Brown NYG K

Fan Duel Week 2 NFL line up advice

Welcome to Week Two of NFL Fantasy on Fan Duel

Updates will be made as needed leading up to week one kick offs.

Each week I’ll be posting players I am strongly considering for my Fan Duel football line ups each week. I’ll also include QB/WR stacks and injury news you should be watching for possible reserves who may benefit from those situations.

Always keep in mind that Week 2 is still typically a hard week to handicap. We saw only some, of what each team has planned, but there were a few clues and trends to pay attention to.

Week 2 Top scoring Game Lines:

TEN at DET -5.5 (47), CIN at PIT -5 (47.5), NO at NYG -5 (52.5), TAM at ARI -6.5 (50), SF at CAR -14 (48.5), ATL at OAK-4.5 (48)

Low Scoring Games: PHI at CHI -3 (42.5), MIA at NE -6.5 (41.5)

Players and Games I’m targeting this week,

NO at NYG looks to be very high scoring. Eli Manning NYG QB and O Beckham NYG WR are a very tempting stack. The Saints defense couldn’t stop Oakland in week one and I doubt they’ll stop Manning/OBJ this week. The Giant defense isn’t a stone wall either, so D Brees NO QB, B Cooks NO WR and W Snead NO WR should be worth starts. The ball should be flying the entire second half in this game. You want players from this game in your line ups.

The Steelers offense rolled thru the WAS defense on Monday night and will have no problems with the CIN DEF this coming Sunday. B Roethlisberger QB, A Brown WR and D Williams RB scored a total of 83.5 total fantasy points together on Monday and I’m riding this trio until further notice. The Bengals have their own stud receiver, AJ Green who had 12/180 and a TD last week. Figure on him almost matching those numbers this week while A Dalton CIN QB is trying to match the Steelers point for point. This is another game you a piece of this week.

Face it, week one proved that the LA Rams offense stinks, play the Seattle Defense this week.

It looks like Thomas Rawls will be the starting SEA RB this week.

The Baltimore Defense looked good in week one and this week they have the rebuilding Cleveland Brown offense minus RG3, the Ravens Defense should do just fine.

The SF 49er’s visit the Carolina Panthers this week. The SF DEF looked good against the LA Rams on Monday night, they won’t against the Panthers. Load up on C Newton QB, K Benjamin WR, T Ginn WR, J Stewart RB and G Olsen TE this week. You want part of this game in your line up, also..

K Allen SD WR is now on the IR with a severe Knee Injury. This makes T Benjamin SD WR and T Williams SD WR the most likely recipients of Allen’s numerous looks and catches from SD QB, P Rivers.

T Sharpe TEN WR looked good in his first start for the Titans, I expect him to get even better as the season rolls on.

M Jones Jr DET WR had a line of 10/85/0 in week 1, he was indeed sought out by M Stafford DET QB often and will see better results (TD’s) as the season progresses.

D Prescott DAL QB disappointed some fantasy players in week 1, he is still a value QB (7000) and will only get better as he settles into the starting QB job on the Cowboys.

S Ware KC RB is up against a stiffer HOU DEF this week, however he still can do everything asked of him, just don’t expect another 30 point game.

Players to consider and their salaries for week one on Fan Duel:

QB’s: B Roethlisberger PIT QB 8300, C Newton CAR 9000, E Manning NYG 8100, A Dalton CIN 7800, D Prescott DAL 7000.

RB’s: S Ware KC 6800, D Williams PIT 7600, T Rawls SEA 6600, D Murray TEN 7400.

WR’s: O Beckham NYG 9400, A Brown PIT 9200, AJ Green CIN 8900, T Benjamin SD WR 6100 K Benjamin CAR 7500, T Sharpe TEN 6000, B Cooks NO 8400, W Snead NO 7200, A Jeffery CHI 7800, M Jones Jr DET 6500.

TE’s: G Olsen CAR 7600, J Reed WAS 7400,

K: G Gano CAR 4900, C Boswell PIT 4600, R Bullock NYG 4800,

DST’s: SEA 5200, BAL 4500, CAR 5300,

Stacks: E Manning/O Beckham NYG 17500, C Newton/K Benjamin CAR 16500, A Dalton/AJ Green CIN 16700.

Injuries to watch: TY Hilton IND WR, J Stewart CAR RB, J Jones ATL WR, M Sanu ATL WR, D Freeman ATL RB, R Gronkowski NE TE, D Thomas DEN WR, S Watkins BUF WR, J Thomas JAX TE, C Ivory JAX RB, J Charles KC RB, Z Ertz PHI TE, R Wilson SEA QB,

Out: K Allen SD WR, RG3 CLE QB, T Romo DAL QB, D Lewis NE RB, B Watson BAL TE, T Bridgewater MIN QB

Suspensions of note: T Brady NE QB, L Bell PIT RB, J Gordon CLE WR, J Brown NYG K

Fan Duel Week One Tournament line-up

Here’s one possible tournament line-up for Fan Duels Week One Fantasy Football Contests.

As you probably already know, Tony Romo fractured a vertebra on the first play of their 3rd preseason game this past week end.

This leaves Dak Prescott DAL QB 5000 as their announced week one starting QB. The Cowboys are currently scrambling to sign a FA Veteran QB as a back up. Romo is expected to miss at least 6 weeks, probably more.

This is one of those opportunities that fantasy players dream of, a no name QB, who has had an excellent camp and preseason stats, who costs the bare QB Minimum salary ($5000) on Fan Duel.

Now using him is of course a risk, but if he can you at least 200 yds passing, a few rushing yards and a TD or 2 (20-25 points) he is an exceptional value.

He is a great tournament play at this price……

Of course if he has any success in week one, his price will skyrocket in week 2. Take advantage now while his salary is this low.

What does his low $5000 salary get you? How about an chance to build a line up like this?

High risk Fan Duel line-up for week one

You’ll be able to max out your line up, using 4 or 5 of the top RB and WR options available on week one.

The line up I’m using is just one of the possibilities, use your best judgement and build one or several strong line-up’s using Prescott’s incredible value.

Fan Duel will give all new depositors a 5 pack of free contest entries with any deposit today.

Fan Duel adds to Week One Schedule

Fan Duel has added Thursday Sept. 8 start Fantasy NFL Contests.

Just as we all thought would happen, Fan Duel has added a Thursday start NFL Slate for week one.

That means for everyone who just can’t wait until Sunday the 11th, you can start your fantasy season right from the first Kick off of the 2016 season.

The Highlighted Thursday start contest on Fan Duel is the $250K NFL Rush, which is a $5 entry, $40K to 1st place and pays out over 11,000 winners.

Of course there are all kinds of $1 and $2 contests open for the Thursday slate, including the $2 NFL Snap ($100K GTD) and the $1 NFL Squib ($50K GTD).

The first regular season NFL game of 2016, kicks off at 8:30 PM ET and has CAR -3 at DEN (42.5).

Players to watch in this one are C Newton CAR QB 8600, G Olsen CAR TE 7500, J Stewart CAR RB 6400, T Ginn CAR WR 5900. The DEN DST is still very good, so limit your expectations for really big fantasy scores from the Carolina skill players.

I can’t see M Sanchez DEN QB 6300 doing too much against the stout CAR DST.  D Thomas DEN WR 7200 and E Sanders DEN WR 6800 will accumulate their usual receptions and yardage, but it looks like scores will be harder to come by.

It is the first game of the week, so don’t overload your rosters with CAR and DEN players.  You can’t  win anything on Thursday, but you can lose everything with a Thursday heavy line up with little or no scoring.

You should always be very selective on your Thursday start players, remember you still have everyone on all the games on Sunday and Monday to choose from.

Fan Duel Week One NFL line up advice

Welcome to Week One of NFL Fantasy on Fan Duel

Updates will be made as needed leading up to week one kick offs.

Last Update: Sunday, September 7

Each week I’ll be posting players I am strongly considering for my Fan Duel football line ups each week. I’ll also include QB/WR stacks and injury news you should be watching for possible reserves who may benefit from those situations.

Vegas has several high scoring games on their lines for week one, there should be plenty of points to be had for savvy fantasy players this week.

Always keep in mind that Week One is typically a hard week to handicap, no one really knows who or what the coaching staffs are secretly planning to use or how to use their newly found gems and we’ll all have to wait and see the regular season play out a couple of weeks to really get a grasp on exactly what team defenses are good and how the rookie class of players will be used/emphasized.

Week One Top scoring Game Lines:

OAK at NO-1 (50.5), GB -4.5 at JAX (47), NYG at DAL -3.5 (49.5), DET at IND -5 (49), NE at ARI -5.5 (Sunday night)  (48), PIT -3 at WAS (Monday night) (50.5).

Top defensive games: MIN -3 at TEN (42) and SD at KC -7 (43)

Players I’m targeting this week,

I’m putting a lot of emphasis on the Monday night match-up of PIT at WAS for my Fan Duel line-ups. There are a couple of stacking opportunities to behold and I can see this game being even more high scoring than the wise guys in Vegas are predicting.

Even without L Bell PIT RB (3 game suspension), the Steelers should be able to rack up a shitload of points. Don’t be the guy who does not have A Brown PIT WR in your line-up. D Williams PIT RB also proved to be a more than capable replacement for L BELL when he missed time last year.

It looks like J Charles KC RB will not play in week one, this makes S Ware KC RB 5400 a must start in your line ups.

The connections that B Bortles JAX QB had with A Robinson WR  and A Hurns WR  was incredible last year. Any stack involving those guys cannot be discounted and it is one I can highly recommend on the Sunday game slate this week. Also the 2016 JAX running game has been greatly improved with the addition of C Ivory and I can see their deep threats opening a lot of space for Ivory.

K Cousins WAS QB and J Reed TE had a fantastic end of season run in 2015, you can expect that to continue to grow in 2016.

Without T Brady NE QB for the first month, I can imagine that L Blount RB will have quite a few more touches especially if J Garoppolo NE QB has any trouble in the Patriots spot light. Of course you can never tell what Coach Belichick will do, but without D Lewis NE RB (out) in the mix to take touches, Blount looks like a pretty good choice, at least for the first few weeks and especially up close on Goal Line opportunities.

M Jones Jr. WR DET has established himself as M Stafford’s DET QB deep threat in camp and without Megatron this year some one has to step up and be the Lions go to deep guy.

I was fortunate enough to see a few preseason games this past week end on the NFL Network. Make sure you use the HOU D 4900 against CHI on week one. The Bears offense looks terrible and the HOU defense looks ready to dominate offenses this year.

Players to consider and their salaries for week one on Fan Duel:

QB’s: K Cousins WAS 7800, R Wilson 8500, B Roethlisberger PIT 8500, Bortles JAX 8400, Dak Prescott DAL 5000

RB’s: S Ware KC 5400, L Blount NE 6000, D Williams PIT 7100, Langford CHI 6200, L Murray OAK 6600, D Sproles PHI 5600, C Ivory JAX 6100, J Hill CIN 6500

WR’s: K White CHI 6000,  M Crabtree OAK 6100, A Brown PIT 9300, M Jones Jr DET 5500, T Sharpe TEN 4800

TE’s: J Reed WAS 7400, D Allen IND 5500, V McDonald SF 4700

K: D Bailey DAL 4800, C Boswell PIT 4600, B Walsh MIN 4700

DST’s: HOU 4900, SEA 5000, KC 5100, MIN 4600

Top Stacks: K Cousins/J Reed WAS $15200, Big Ben/ A Brown PIT 17800,  Bortles/A Robinson JAX 16900, D Prescott/D Bryant DAL 13000

Injuries to watch: J Reed WAS TE , J Nelson GB WR, L Fitzgerald ARI WR, J Matthews WR PHI, T Eifort CIN TE, C Hyde SF RB, D Amendola NE WR, J Brown ARI WR, V Cruz NYG WR, E Ebron DET TE, D Allen IND TE

New Injuries to watch: A J Green CIN WR, K Stills MIA WR

Out: T Romo DAL QB, D Lewis NE RB, B Watson BAL TE, T Bridgewater MIN QB

Suspensions of note: T Brady NE QB, L Bell PIT RB, J Gordon CLE WR, J Brown NYG K

New York State is back On-Line for Daily Fantasy……

NEW YORK is now open for Daily Fantasy…..

The NY State Gaming commission has approved and gave the go ahead for DraftKings and Fan Duel to start accepting Fantasy Players from NY State.

Each site had to show exactly what contests they would be offering, show compliance for customer fund safety and how they would monitor where players are located when they are playing on the site.

In total, the 4 Big Players: DraftKings, Fan Duel, Fantasy Draft and Yahoo have been awarded Temporary Daily Fantasy Operating Permits and all expect the formal licensing process to be completed without issue.

That Means all New Yorker’s can reload, research and get ready for the 2016 NFL Fantasy Season which will be starting in just a couple of weeks.

Quote from NYSGC:

The Commission has completed a legally required thorough review of the temporary permit applications from these five companies, ensuring required consumer protections, player safeguards and advertising restrictions are in place.

“As the newly enacted law requires, the Commission regulates all aspects of interactive fantasy sports, including ensuring the operators put important consumer protections in place,” said Commission Executive Director Robert Williams. “While the Commission continues work on formal regulations for these games, these temporary permits get companies up and running in New York State while assuring resident players that safeguards are in place.”

Comments from DraftKings CEO Jason Roberts:

“MLB pennant races are heating up, an exciting NFL season is just around the corner and we are thrilled to be able to bring DraftKings back to millions of New York sports fans. We thank the New York State Gaming Commission for being thorough and expedient in approving the return of fantasy sports to New York.  We are proud to be a leading sports-tech and entertainment company that delivers an unparalleled fantasy sports experience, with state of the art technology and a mission to bring fans closer to the sports they love than they ever thought possible. New Yorkers can play our games right now, and on behalf of everyone at our company, thank you New York and welcome back to DraftKings!”

FD Football

New York is now open for Daily Fantasy Play…..

Full Steam Ahead for the estimated 3 Million DFS Players in New York…..

Governor Cuomo of New York requested the Bill passed back in June by the NY State General assembly today and promptly signed it, opening up New York for Daily Fantasy Play and just in time for the upcoming Fantasy Football season.

Any Site desiring to operate in NY will have to apply for a temporary permit to start operating immediately and then apply for a permanent license when the details of the procedure are established.

The newly signed law includes many protections and game rules to not only level the playing field for all players but will generate an estimated $4 Million in new tax revenue for the Empire State.

The two largest Fantasy Sites Fan Duel and Draftkings have already incorporated all these rules and regulations onto their sites which include:

  • Sites must prevent play by minors, with a minimum age of 18 for users.
  • In advertisements and upon entry in a contest, operators must “make clear and conspicuous statements that are not inaccurate or misleading concerning the chances of winning and the number of winners.”
  • Sites must allow players to exclude themselves from play and include a resource for compulsive play.
  • Sites must identify all “highly experienced players” in any contest.
  • Sites must ensure that players funds are segregated from operational funds.
  • There is a 15% tax on gross revenues from NY state players and an additional .5% tax on revenues up to $50,000

As many players already know the NFL season is only 35 days away from Kick-off, the reintroduction of play from New York will undoubtedly fuel the 2016 Daily Fantasy Season to new heights.
