Week 5 FanDuel Cheatsheet

Things continue to get crazy in the world of Daily Fantasy Football, after we had yet another week where scoring eclipsed what Las Vegas expected to happen. Know that our Week 5 FanDuel cheatsheet is meant to help you overcome these lapses in handicapper’s judgment!

In Week 5, we’re looking at four teams going on byes, which essentially means you’ll have to dip a little deeper as you fill out your DFS lineups.

Now, you’re going to start seeing players like Willie Snead and Marquess Wilson in the mix, whereas you normally wouldn’t even give them a second glance.

The four teams on byes include the Dolphins, Jets, Panthers and Vikings, which means the quarterbacks and defenses are really the two positions taking the biggest hits this week.

Week 3 FanDuel Cheat Sheet

This is it! This is the last weekend before bye weeks hit, until we reach Week 12 of the NFL season. So understand that you’ll have more choices and see more players available in our Week 3 FanDuel Cheat Sheet. That could also mean that this is the last week of the greatest variance, also.

It stands to reason, right? In Week 3, you have the option of 32 NFL starting quarterbacks, so a DFS tournament could have 32 different starting QBs, too. But starting next week, with only 30 different quarterbacks, the variances will be smaller. Plus, in Week 9, when six teams are on byes, the variance will be even smaller.

FanDuel Week 2 Cheat Sheet

Let’s get right into it – the FanDuel Week 2 Cheat Sheet offers up several very good value plays for this week’s NFL matchups.

Stick with a stud at quarterback, as I’m not a big fan of any of the middle-tier guys.

But among the running backs, injuries and suspensions have made players like Browns RB Terrance West and Matt Asiata good values in FanDuel Week 2 contests.

My only problem with West is – he had a horrible preseason, with 2.7 yards per carry, so it’s difficult to give him too much credit entering Week 2, after a breakout Week 1. Especially when Isaiah Crowell played so well, too. The “other” rookie might actually be the better play – especially in tournaments where you need diversity.
