Default Week 8 FanDuel Line-Up

QB- Peyton Manning; $8,800; playing one of the worst pass Defenses in the league this week (Saints)

RB- Chris Johnson; $7,300; Indy has givin up at least 100 total rushing yards in every game except for last week...CJ has come on stron the past few weeks..plus its .5 points per recprion

RB- Ryan Mathews; $7,600; Cleveland allowing 133 rushing yards per game; Mathews averaging 100 yards and 4 receptions the past 4 games

WR- Julio Jones; $7,400; Falcons WR are hard to cover..its either cover White or cover Jones..and Jones can get open deep; Eagles last 3 games- Eli Manning 309 yards 2 TD, Big Ben 220 yards 1 TD; Matt Stafford 311 yards 1 TD...Matt Ryan is averaging 293 yards/game

WR- Marques Colston; $7,100; Averaging 119 yards and almost 2 TD the past 3 games...Saints are always in shootouts and Colston is easily targeted the most; I dont see that trend stopping against the Broncos and maning

WR- Eric Decker; $6,200; was the cheapest of him and Thomas (see above Colston and Manning reasoning); hes also averaging 6 receptions 85 yards and 1 TD per game the past 4 games

TE- Jason Witten; $5;400; Averaging 8 receptions 85 yards pergame past 3 games; Dez Bryant is injured so wont be much use...Giants are bottom tier when it comes to pass defense

K- Rob Bironas; $5,100; one of the cheapest K..usually automatic from 35 yards out or closer

D- Packers; $5,100; Again, cheap defense...playing lowly Jags with no MJD and maybe no Gabbert...Gabbert isnt much, but if Henne plays instead..could easily be a sleeper Defense

$100 leftover

Any thoughts or opinions?

I'm fading Colston and jones this week but I think everyone is one Thomas including me. I like Wayne, Antonio Brown, Mike Wallace and Cobb all this week. Do you play daily fantasy fb on any other sites? I'm adona72001 on all of them.

did some research using 5 different sites to try and match-up the best team possible...

came up with a few tweaks:

subbed out Ryan Matthews for Matt Forte...saved me $200..and seems that across all the sites but 1, Forte is a consistant top 5 RB this week (Yahoo #3, ESPN #1, FF Toolbox #5 )..Mathews is still projected to do good, but some have him top 3, some barely in top 10...

subbed Brandon Marshall in for Julio Jones...saved another $400...hes a consistant top 3 WR on all sites i checked (save for 1, who had him at #9 due to Cutlers rib injury)...whereas as Jones was around 10th in all

subbed Reggie Wayne for Marques Colston...i still think Colston will be nice this week..but guess i went a more safer route and also saved another $300...Wayne is also a consistant #5 WR, while Colston is close behind him, but also as low as 9-10 in some "projections"

used the extra $$ to upgrade Jason Witten to Tony Gonzalez...who is a clear top 2 TE across the board projection wise..

i tried my hardest to squeeze in Thomas for Decker...but ended up $400 short..and i still think Decker is a solid play. i think the upgrade at TE will serve me better.

Probably shouldnt rely so much on "experts"..but when they are all pointing in certain directions..they cant be wrong about them all right?

I have

P manning- popular play this week but almost to obvious to pass up
A Morris-like skimping on RB and he seems to do well with focus on RGIII
R Mathews- le others picking on clev run defense
P harvin- just seems under priced every week but its getting closer
R Wayne- same as harvin keep riding him again against tenn
D Moore- against a bad kc defense
Tony Gon- if I knew in time ahern wasn't playing I may have splurged on Gronk
Walsh
Raiders-against kc team in trouble.

After having a few good weeks I jumped in more expensive games so I'm sure ill stumble this week.

Out of 20 teams in the $25 50/50 I'm in 13/20 took harvin. Many have manning. A Morris seems to be my only unique play so he will be big for me this week, scary.

Shouldve stuck with my gut with Julio Jones and Witten..instead of Marshall and Gonzalez

instead of sitting at 75.2 points with manning/Decker and Witten to play and on the verge of cashing in all the games ive entered (6 total..with cashing sitting at around 85 points)

im currently at only 67 points..such a shame

yep...so totally kicking my ass for changing my lineup....

swap Julio Jones for Brandon Marshall..for a loss of 6.5 points
swap Jason Witten for Tony Gonzalez for a whopping 16 point loss

id be sitting at 99.5 points with Manning and Decker getting ready to play...

cashing in all sitting at only 100 points....fml

I'm setting at 110th place in the FFFC Qualifier with David Akers still left so assuming he gets 7 points I should win $40-$70 off my $10 entry!
