FanDuel Week 8 : The Squad

I gave you my favorite plays yesterday.  Here is my squad today.

Quarterback : Eli Manning ($7,300) Really surprised how cheap Eli is this week heading into New Orleans. Yeah he may have had pooped on the bed the past two weeks but I’m pretty sure he cleaned his sheets. Plus he is going up against the Saints defense that allows 404 yards per game.


Running Back: Todd Gurley ($8,100) “Todd the God’s” price is sweeter than breast milk. I have him ranked as my #2 running back this week overall and he is leaps and bounds cheaper than the top guys. Flip a coin between him and Devonta: one of them will be the running back of the week.


Running Back: Danny Woodhead ($6,100)  All the 5 foot 8 running back does is rack up targets while doing a good job running the ball. Woodhead caught 11 of 12 passes for 76 yards last week.  You gotta take him at that price vs. the Ravens or you are doing yourself a disservice.


Wide Receiver: Julio Jones ($9,200) Get Real.

Wide Receiver: Odell Beckham Jr. ($8,700) ODB practiced this week and is playing the Saints. I’m expecting 100 plus yards and at LEAST one score.


Wide Reciver: Michael Floyd ($4,900) Floyd has quietly had two straight games of 13 plus fantasy points. John Brown is in question and if he gives me 8 I’ll be happy. He faces the Browns this week.


Tight End: Greg Olsen ($6,400) I met him a couple weeks back and he told me personally that he likes green tea with a little bit of lemonade in it.  It must work because he destroyed the Seahawks that week and will do work vs. the Colts on Sunday.


Kicker: Josh Lambo ($4,500) Cheap and in a good offense.


Defense:  Atlanta ($4,800) I honestly don’t like many defenses this week, but I’ll take a flier on the Falcons at home vs. Jameis.
