This is a thread dedicated to getting help on fanduel or just bragging about tourneys and wins. I started week two and won $70 in a $1 tourney by getting 2nd place to begin the season.

Available for help on the week, or love to hear and see winnings (be sure to show them). 

 

Please nail this thread with the draftkings thread above!

The first week I won $10 in a dollar tournament, so I'm ahead. Didn't win anything last week, although I came close. Antonio Brown and De'Angelo Williams helped me the first week, as did Luck. Brown kind of slid last week, but I'll still put him in my lineups.

 

I should have had New England as my defense this week, but didn't use anyone from Thursday night. At least I didn't use Osweiler.haha

Is Fanduel better than DraftKings?

 

I never played DraftKings, so I can't say, but I do enjoy Fanduel. I like the variety of leagues and tournaments and all the different amounts of money you can choose from. There are even free games no cash value, but to see how many points you can get.

I enjoy it better for the most part. Fanduel caters to beginners better by separating them from highly experienced players based on winnings, and I can withdraw checks for low amounts if I need too at any time. Needed to pay my dad back some money, so I withdrew $75, and they sent me a check. Really convienent from when you used to had to of had $250 to withdraw years ago. I would recommend fanduel 100%.

Congrats! That's solid. $10 in a $1 tourney isn't bad at all. I wouldn't use anyone from a Thursday night game at all, this is a suggestion as other players in your lineup that play on Sunday or Monday could get injured in practice. Corey Coleman breaking his hand is an example. I would completely avoid the Thursday games and play the 1:00 games on and have the ability to set your lineups til the 1st games start. That will give you protection against the injuries that could occur.

Didn't go so good this week. Sometimes I wonder how much the NFL analysts really know. I was going to have some KC players, but it was suppose to be a bad match up against the Jets' defense. Turns out the Jets' didn't have a defense this week.  Luck and Rivers were "starts of the week."; wasn't real bad, but not as expected. 

 

Antonio Brown continues to impress. Despite the Steelers' pathetic defensive game, Brown still got me 20 points. He was one of the few bright points. Maybe next week will go better.

Minnesota defense and TE Kyle Rudolph got me a winning position in one of my Fanduel tournaments. It was in a dollar league, and even though the winning wasn't  a huge amount, every little bit helps. Someone brought up the point that the Giants hadn't given up a touchdown to any tight ends this season. Last night Rudolph scored a touchdown, so there's always a first time. Liking Minnesota so far this season.

Good job Tegan! How much did you win in the tourney? I did a withdrawl and had to start over. Turned $13 into $34 as I won all 11 of my cash leagues. This week, I'm going to enter a tourney or two and take a few more chances on a couple 5 and 10 player tourneys to see if I can double my bankroll again.

I won $12.50 so far; spent $4.00. I've  been playing the $1 and $2 leagues along with some free ones. The free ones, of course, don't pay anything, but they give me a chance to practice setting up lineups while staying within the salary cap. I can't afford to spend more than that at a time.

That's pretty decent. Fanduel allows you to withdraw at basically anytime. I withdrew $75 to make up for some losses at the casino, so it's a lot lower now than the $250 minimum years ago. I'm doing $1 and $2 leagues as well. Was going to do a $5 league this week, but cancelled it because i want to build my bankroll higher first. Lots of ways in $1 and $2 contests to do that. Good luck this week!

T. Y. Hilton got me 28 points, and helped me win. I always use Antonio Brown and Le"Veon Bell in my lineups, no matter the match up. They are my "go to" guys. 

 

I almost used Brady, but decided elsewhere. I spent the money on other positions instead. it wasn't too bad, though, as Derek Carr got me 22 points. I keep hearing about  Zach Ertz, but he didn't do much, so most likely won't try him again.

I had an average week this last week. Used Aaron Rodgers in cash and Brady in tourneys with Bennett, along with Cooper and Marshall. So did better in tourneys, though Terrance West and Zach Ertz hurt me. I also switched Vinetairi out for McManus out to be Contrarian, and it cost me 11 points. So I made some decent money in tourneys, but made a couple dumb mistakes as well. 

 

Couldn't bring myself to use Brown and Bell this week. Marshall was slightly better, and I had Jordan Howard. May go back to one of them this week though. Definitely a harder week with all the prices up. Someone like Bell or Brown will be a nice pick performance-wise I think.

I have Prescott and Elliott in one of my tournaments. The advice from some analysts is to bench Elliott against Green Bay, but they've been wrong before. Elliott has been so productive that I want to use him. Green Bay's defense doesn't always deliver, and I'm hoping that Elliott has a big day. Will find out later if I made a mistake.

 

I also have Sammy Coates, but looks like he might need to be replaced, as he's still listed as questionable and will be a game time decision. My lineups lock at 1:00, so have to decide soon. I really dislike 'game time decisions" in fantasy football.

I am PERMANENTLY BENCHING allen robinson,  and PERMANENTLY PLAYING mike Wallace. 

 

Allen robinson is absolute trash!  

 

I bench latavius murray cause of his garbage play. And he puts up 22 in ppr. 

 

I can't win at all.  I play good people they do trash, I bench players when they've been garbage and then they do great.

Jacksonville has been disappointing this season. I had Bortles and Robinson in leagues last season and did well with them, but not  this year.

 

L Murray hasn't done much at all, so it figures that the game he's benched is when he puts up all those points.  It seems that the NFL doesn't cooperate with fantasy football.

 

Then injuries happen, and that changes everything. I've lost more in ppr leagues than won, but still continue playing. I just keep trying, thinking each week is another chance.

Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott helped me gain in the top 50% of a 100 player league, so I won a small amount of money. I was near the bottom before Sunday night.  Denver's defense also scored 22 points for me.

 

Julio Jones seems to do well the times I don't have him in the lineup; when I do have him, he scores very few points. I'm never sure whether to play him or not. I won't next week because I avoid Thursday night games in daily. I don't like my lineups to lock that far ahead.

I got first place in a five player league thanks to Ezekiel Elliott. He got me 39 points, the most I've ever gotten from one player. it was a free game, so no cash value, just bragging rights.

 

On another league, I wasn't sure at first about DeMarco Murray against GB, but it worked out. Murray ran wild on the Packers. That helped me get a small amount in a dollar tournament. Should have also used Elliot in that one, but oh well.

On the other hand, Brady had an off game. I expected more out of him since he is expensive; should have gone with Newton or Roethlisberger instead. Had a good week overall, though.

It's challenging trying to set up lineups. Many of the top quarterbacks didn't do well, so I'm not sure who to trust this week. I'm definitely putting Le'Veon Bell in my leagues. I was in the top 50% because of Bell: he got me 49 points! I don't expect him to do that every time, but how can I not have him in my lineups? Especially when the Steelers are trying for the playoffs.

 

Then if teams are already going to the playoffs, will the starters still play? That's why I prefer daily fantasy: each week is a different league.

    • it's kind of a win win though if we do have a bad season I won't be too upset and if we have a great season then that's awesome. unless we keep our coach and get like a late 20s pick cuz I mean we'd still get value but not as much maybe as a top 10 pick obviously. it's not as simple as just want a good season not this year. even though I always want the Colts to kick butt
    •   Denver won a superbowl with Brock Osweiler (plus a living corpse Manning). Osweiler (and Siemian both) looked a lot better under Kubiak's hand than any QB under O'Brians hand since he left Boston. Not to mention, O'Brian replaced Fitzpatrick with Hoyer, who was worse than his predecessor, then replaced Hoyer with Osweiler who also was worse than his predecessor. Imo, O'Brian couldn't install a system for his lesser talented QB's, which would've helped them use their strengths.   On the other hand, Pagano is a secondary coach. Let's see what he has done there? The Colts (Grigson) didn't draft a single player in the secondary in the first 3 years. Of the free agent additions: Davis become a first team all pro. Mike Adams made the pro bowl multiple times and played his best football over age 30 in Indy. Dwight Lowery had a decent year here, one of his best. Greg Toler wasn't good, but he played his best football in Indy. The Laron Landry project failed, but it failed more due to not being able to stay healthy, than production. (I didn't particularly like him though, but I can't say he was terrible when healthy.) Darius Butler become a decent player, having his best years of his carreer in Indy. Then, when the Colts finally decided to draft in the secondary: D'Joun Smith turned out to be a bust. Health issues again. Geathers became a fine player - sadly, health issues there again.  For T.J. Green, Hooker and Wilson the jury is still out. And they found Rashan Melvin off the streets. This is not bad at all. Most players, who stayed healthy, played their best in Indy. Of course talent matters. You can't make pro-bowlers out of journeymen.     Pagano's record is 15-7 at home and 13-14 on the road against coaches ahead of him. That's not a bad record considering that coaches ahead of him usually have better rosters under their control. (The numbers might be off by one or two here or there, due to coaching changes, etc. I might counted - or not counted - a game played against a previous coach. I also counted games against Harbaugh and Kubiak supposing they'd be in top10 being active. Anyway the true record must be close to the above.).   All in all, I think Pagano is right there where he belongs to after 3 winning plus 2 down seasons. Middle of the pack. But ..... I think, based on "potential", he is better than his current value. He is a top10 coach on my list.   I know many of you guys strongly disagree, but that's my honest opinion. There are better coaches in the NFL than him. But not many. So I really wish Pagano will prove himself in 2017. Aaand, if he fails and will be fired, then I cross my fingers that there will be at least one guy available of those "not many". (Yes, despite my belief that he is a fine coach, I agree that he has to go if he fails to prove himself. Because that's the right decision. But honestly, I'll be scared if that happens. It won't be easy to find a better guy. And there is always a chance to be ChipKelly-d....)  
    • Banner was up to 260Lbs He was at 253lbs for the combine with a goal of 245lbs. I thought that's what I read.  Walker adding 7 so he's back up over 240.    Wilson at 207lbs jumps out to me. We heard about "football shape" for him. He was 211lbs at the combine. You'd think him being in better shape would make him a blink quicker. If he's a little faster we may not get him. I'm excited to see this kid with Hooker on the back end. If we can get Geathers back we could have something.   
    •   And, wittness such a weird offseason. Giving up a fortune for Mahomes, letting Poe (+Howard) go then sign Bennie Logan for similar cash? Let Charles, Knile Davis go then sign C.J. Spiller? And finally, let Maclin go and not even try to do something with the WR depth. (There was Decker available for example....)   These remind me a bit of what happened in Philly when Chip Kelly took full control. He let McCoy go then signed Murray and Matthews to huge contracts, etc. Weird moves.   Reid is not Kelly, the old man is proven and good. But still.... something doesn't feel right for me there.
    • Even though this is Camp weight [nothing to get riled over] there are a few players that intrigued me weight wise. Hooker, Woods(23lbs is alot of weight), just to name a few
