Best Fan Duel Week 2 2014 Fantasy Football Strategies and Plays

I play fanduel, I win more then I lose.  But, no I cannot do it for a living.  But, I can help you win, by reading this blog.  Below I have listed in what my opinion are the best week 2 plays in Fantasy Football in the fanduel salary cap game and system.  I will go via game and list the players I like for this weekend:

Indianapolis Colts- Philadelphia Eagles- I love this game for playing fanduel, if you are playing this should be a high scoring affair and you are going to want multiple action in this game.  LeSean McCoy at 9,2000 while high could be a huge bargain.  Indianapolis has surrendered more then 30 points in its last 3 games.  In fact, the only Eagle I would avoid is Foles only because I think there are better quarterback values to be had.  Jermey Maclin at 6,300 and Zach Ertz at 5,600 are great bargains as well.

As for the Colts they are a tough team to figure who will get the ball and score the touchdowns.  I personally feel luck at 9,200 is too rich, Pep Hamilton will go conservative in the first half like he always does.  The running back situation is murky as Bradshaw and Richardson got equal touches against Denver so that is a stay away situation.  And the receivers are just as murky, with Wayne, Hilton and Nicks all competing for the ball,  The only Colt I see as a possible pick up is Dwayne Allen at 4,800 (he caught a TD last week and was targeted a great deal).

Green Bay Packers NY Jets-  I love love love Aarond Rodgers this week, and if you are tournaments stacking him with Jordy Nelson maybe possible for a huge week.  Jordy's price tag is high at 7,900 but the Jets are going with second and third string corners, and even if Millner comes back, he still sucks.    Cobb is 7,600 is also a strong play but I would go with the number one guy for only 300 more.  Rodgers at 9,100 might be the best qb matchup on the board.  Don't worry about the line the Packers will figure it out.   Their tight end situation is murky and they will probably be kept into block anyways.  Eddie Lacy has a concussion and they will have trouble running on the Jets even if he were healthy, so at 8,200 he is a stay away.

As for the Jets, I do not see much plays here, their offense stinks and receivers and running backs are by committee.  Gun to my head Chris Ivory at 5,700 is not a bad longshot play.

Miami Dolphins Buffalo Bills-  The Bills passing game is receiver by committee with Woods, Williams and Watkins getting equal play.  Miami has small corners so Watkins at 5,900 and Woods at 5,200 being interesting long shot plays.  The Bills have run the ball at will against Miami in their recent matchups so RB is the way to go here CJ Spiller at 7,500 is a good bargain but he does not get goaline carries  Fred Jackson who is only 5,700 is their third down back gets goal line carries is a great bargain this week.  Remember Miami's starting linebackers are out.

Miami Dolphins-  I tend to avoid the Phins running game this week with Moreno and Miller splitting carries and the Bills run defense being better then New Englands.  The matchup I love is Charles Clay against the Bills he is only 5,800.  Jarius Byrd is gone and the Bills safeties and linebackers are iffy in coverage.  Mike Wallace is an interesting play as well, though Miami maybe too concerned about protection to get Wallace deep in this game.  Tannehill at 6,500 if you are looking for a longshot quarterback play maybe money, especially if the Phins get behind early.  He played poort against the Bills in two games last year but will have a better offensive line up with him this year.

St. Louis Tampa Bay- Needless to say both defenses are strong plays here as both offenses looked impotent in the seasons first week.  The Rams Defense can be had for 4,800 and the Bucs for 4,900.  The offenses are slim pickings Doug Martin looks washed up so 7,400 for him is obscene,  Mike Evans is an interesting wide receiver play however he had 8 targets last week and a touchdown called back and can be had for only 6,000.  Vincent Jackson at 7,300 I like Evans better at his price.  Due to the fact their offense stinks.

But not as bad as the Rams offense stinks.  They are doing running back by committee with Stacy and Cunningham splitting carries so avoid and their receiver and quarterback situation is worse.  Couple that with a horrible OC and the Rams O is a dumpster fire, avoid at all costs.

KC at Denver-  Manning is a gimmie play anyweek, the Chiefs defense lost tow defenders as well to injuries and their corners are suspect.  I love Demaryuis Thomas this week, he is at 8,700 second highest receiver salary on the board but he should earn it.  Julius Thomas salary shot up to 8,100, and after three touchdowns he is probably overpriced.  Emmanuel Sanders at 6.,900 I also believe is too high for an iffy touchdown proposition.  But if you are in a head to head or 50/50 league, he provides solid production and consistency.  Monte Ball is a great play as all Denver starting RBs are he sucked last week and still scored 17 points.  At 8,100 he is a great bet especially in 50/50 or head to head leagues for guaranteed production.  If you are mining for defenses to play Denver at 5,400 maybe a great play, I am not sure how KC will move the ball on them.

Kansas City-  Jamal Charles was horrible last week, he is still 9,100 I would not dive in until I see him start to deliver a big week here or there.  Tight End targets were split last week so I would avoid both McGrath and Kelce.  Dwayne Bowe might be worth a sniff at 6,400 since he is their only NFL caliber receiver.  Alex Smith was horrible last week there is no sign that will change stay away.
