Last week, I entered a heads-up league with our friends at FanDuel.com in an attempt to finally get "into the money" in one of these leagues. So, how did I fare?
Here's the final box score:
|16.72||Joe Flacco||QB||Aaron Rodgers||24.3|
|8.8||Branden Oliver||RB||Le'Veon Bell||24.5|
|24.3||Ronnie Hillman||RB||Justin Forsett||9.5|
|19.6||Dez Bryant||WR||Brandon Marshall||7.8|
|1.9||Alshon Jeffery||WR||James Jones||5.5|
|26.4||Golden Tate||WR||Golden Tate||26.4|
|1.8||Heath Miller||TE||Jordan Reed||7.9|
|13||Blair Walsh||K||Matt Prater||6|
So, really, thanks a lot to Alshon Jeffery and Heath Miller for, apparently, forgetting that their teams were playing this past Sunday. Through seven weeks, I have still yet to hit pay dirt in a league at FanDuel.com.
This week, I think I'm going to get back into a 50/50 pool. That's the league that has 100 entrants and 50 of them will make the money, all for the same amount. Here's what I'm rolling with for this weekend.
Yep. . .rolling with a few Vikings this week. If this offense can't get it going this week against a pretty bad Tampa Bay defense, then they don't deserve to win and I don't deserve to get into the money anyway. Plus, saving a bit at QB and one of my running back spots allows me to load up a bit at my other RB spot and my WR position. At least, I think so.
So, if I wanted to roll with all Minnesota Vikings, how much would it cost this weekend?
Total - $47,900 (up $100 from last week)
It's actually a little more expensive to field an all-Vikings team this week. . .not much, but it's a step in the right direction.
Best of luck to all of you that are partaking in FanDuel leagues this weekend, and may we all find our way into the cash.
