Last week, I spoke about my first week using FanDuel, SB Nation's main fantasy football sponsor for this season, and my entry into The Kalil Foundation's Duel for a Difference, where the proceeds went towards the fight against Lupus. Sadly, I didn't do as well as I might have liked, placing 478th out of 1239 entries with a team score of 112.16 points. My team looked like this:
Unfortunately, there isn't another Duel for a Difference this week. . .apparently that will be back in Week 3 (I thought it was an every week thing), so I'm going to delve into a different pool this week. This one has a $5 entry fee, with a limit of 250 entries. Here's the roster I'm going with for this week.
Managed to spend
every penny $59,700 of my $60,000 salary cap, and still have a couple of homer picks (though I'm guessing that Patterson is finding his way on to plenty of non-Vikings fans' FanDuel teams). Hopefully I can find my way into the money this week.
And, if you were to jump into one of these pools, how much would it cost you to field an (almost) all-Minnesota Vikings lineup if you were so inclined?
Total Price - $44,100 (Last week's total, with Peterson, was $46,900)
That would still give you enough salary cap space to grab any running back you want in order to round out your 9-man roster.
So, if you're curious about FanDuel or just want something a little different in your fantasy football experience, jump on in and give it a go. Hopefully some of you folks will do that and find a lot more success than I did last week.
