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.

Sure, the running backs position is missing superstar Adrian Peterson, and the tight ends without Greg Olsen stings quite a bit. But it’s still the quarterbacks (even with the return of Tom Brady and Marcus Mariota) and defenses that have thinned the most.

The defenses will miss the Jets and Panthers – two top-10 DSTs for sure. And while the Dolphins are out, too, they haven’t done much defensively, and now they’ll have a new head coach and a new defensive coordinator when they return from their bye week.

But they’ll also be missing the Vikings defense, which has been a great surprise thus far.
