Editor's Note: FanDuel is running a $1,000,000 fantasy football league in week 2. The Top 46,000 teams win cash with $100,000 paid to first place. Join now!
We're back with the same league setup and prize payout as week 1.
- It's a Sunday-only league, so no Broncos-Chiefs (tonight), or Jets-Colts (Monday).
- Only three players break the $9k mark (out of a $60k salary): Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers ($9,300, v. Seattle), Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown ($9,200 v. San Francisco) and Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson ($9,000 v. Detroit).
- Perhaps the most interesting DFS player of the week? New England Patriots Tom Brady. He was the best QB of Week 1 with 27.6 points but is available for just $8,300. Why? He and the Pats are facing the Bills and their defensive line which is quite the task.
- Marcus Mariota went off in his first ever NFL game racking up 25 points, third best in the NFL. The Titans head to Cleveland to play the Browns, and you can get him for Week 2 for $7,400.
- Rams QB Nick Foles will cost you $6,500 after a 19-point Week 1. Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford? $7,500 after 15.4 last weekend. The Rams effect in full display.
- At running back, your Rams trio looks like this: Tre Mason for $7,200, Todd Gurley for $6,300, Benny Cunningham for $5,800. Tells you what they think of the injury report.
- You have to be careful with wide receivers in DFS leagues. Three of the top 10 on cost came in with less than 10 points in Week 1: New York Giants WR Odell Beckham, Jr., Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson and Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green.'
- Tight end is a bit of Rob Gronkowski versus everyone else, but I could understand a rationale for Jared Cook.
- I noted last week how surprised I was at the FanDuel cost for the Rams' defense was. They're $600 more expensive this week, though some of that may be attributed to Washington's offense.
So have it. Let us know if you put an entry into the league!
