I don't think it's good when the guy on your team with the most points is the kicker.

My cash lineup for this week, putting it in $160 of double ups on DK

QB Matt Stafford $6800
RB Leveon Bell $9800
RB Bilall Powell $4000
WR Chris Godwin $3000
WR AJ Green $7700
WR Golden Tate $6800
TE Garrett Celek $2500
Flex Marvin Jones Jr $6200
DEF Bears $3000

things were looking grim after the first half of the morning games. But 3 TDs in the second half for Stafford, and a long TD for AJ Green and Golden Tate saved the day. Billal Powell was a huge bust but it didn't really matter as he was 75-90% owned in most of the double ups.

Ended up with 124 points, which was good for almost a full double. Just barely fell out of the money in 1 $25 double up late in the 4th quarter, but returned $270 from my $160 buyins. Account is up to $285 now, all off a $7 freeroll win in week 2. cashed 7 out of 8 weeks with my cash lineups.

Good call on Celek!

Week 10 bets:

Dallas +3 $7,000
Washington +1.5 $6,000
NY Giants -2.5 $6,000
Indianapolis +10.5 $800


yuck.

Should have gotten off Dallas with Tyron Smith out of the lineup. Never seen a single player (non QB) alter an entire offense so much. Dallas is pretty much done if Tyron Smith and/or Sean Lee miss any time. They will not beat Philadelphia with swinging door Chaz Green playing LT next week.

sorry I wasn't around to answer your other questions on Sunday, saw them later. Celek and Powell were (IMO) the 2 most mispriced players on the slate, since they had players ahead of them go down injured after the prices locked, so you got two starters in great matchups at almost min price.(speaking for DK here, I don't play on Fan Duel, but I assume they were cheap there too)

I couldn't find Powell on FD.

Lucky you, although Fournette didn't do much better :(. I played him in my GPP lineup as well.

My day sucked. I was planning on running another Brees/Ingram/Thomas stack but chickened out and went with Stafford/jones stack. Oops. My free money is almost gine after 2 bad weeks.

week 11 balance: $1,600

week 11 bets:

Minnesota -2.5 $1,300
Oakland +7 $100
NY Giants +10.5 $100
Dallas +4.5 $100

JT Miller finally took a hit last week and dropped to $129,000, though that's kind of inconsequential to me now. Need to double up every week for the rest of the year.

neither are in a great spot but I'd go with Cousins because they will likely be behind and forced to throw the ball a lot and that game could turn into a shootout (Unlike lions/Bears)

I tinkered again. Hopefully this goes better than the other times I've tinkered.

Out:
Melvin Gordon
Chargers D
Drew Brees

In:
Brandin Cooks
Tom Brady
Baltimore D



reasoning:

Melvin isn't actually that good as a real life football player. His immense fantasy value comes from his massive usage. I still think he's a good play this week but his usage has been dropping in the last few weeks as Austin Ekelar ahs been eating into his playing time. I think there's a sub-10 point floor here in a worst case scenario if he loses any red zone work. I decided I liked Cooks floor and upside equally as much at $1000 less. With Hogan out, and against the raiders, who are really bad at defending against WRs playing on the outside, Cooks should get 8+ targets.

Once I made that change, I had some extra cash to play with. I went up from Brees to Brady. Not much to say there. Both are good plays but Brady definitely is a stronger play. Patriots are a more pass centric offense than the Saints at this point. Then decided there wasn't really anywhere else on my lineup that I wanted to upgrade with my last $500, so went up to Baltimore D. Chargers D is going to be really popular (probably 50+% in cash games), so I hope they don't go off. I doubt the Bills are going to let Peterman chuck the ball much, and wouldn't be surprised to see them go run heavy or go with a lot of short throws, so I wouldn't be surprised if there aren't many turnovers in that game.


final cash game lineup (for now)

QB Tom Brady
RB Kareem Hunt
RB Rex Burkhead
WR Jamison Crowder
WR Bruce Ellington
WR Sterling Shepard
TE Travis Kelce
FLEX Brandin Cooks
DEF Baltimore
