Cracking FanDuel: Week 8

A weekly overview on cash game strategy, bankroll strategy, and sample cash game lineups.


No change to the primary cash lineup, but do have some thoughts below.

Jamaal Williams is in a great spot this week, and there will be two different types of cash builds for this week. The first is what I'm going with which is the Henry, Hunt, Bernard build.

I expect that you will see a lot of this build. To be honest, it's a good build, and you could strongly consider it for your contests this week. I prefer the one that I'm going with just because I think Derrick Henry's upside is too great this week. I have concerns about Alvin Kamara and the Bears ability to shut him down as they have not allowed a receiving running back to catch more than 40 yards in a game. Kamara's prop is only 49.5 yards which seems much lower than it otherwise should be.

Difficult Week

If you’ve followed along this year, hopefully you’re up this year as the primary cash lineup has absolutely crushed seemingly every week. Going to be honest this week, it is a difficult week, we are going to do our best to decipher through some of the craziness that is going on this week. Weather is a big concern, a significant amount of injuries. This is a week where you may want to consider diversification whether that is on multiple sites or multiple lineups as it is not nearly as straight forward as some of the prior weeks.

While most of the season we have said do not take unnecessary risks, this may be a week that you have to do that. Going down at wide receiver seems like the way to find salary relief with players such as Damiere Byrd, Tre’Quan Smith, Denzel Mims, Darnell Mooney are players who you could consider. The key this week will be to have a core group of players who score enough while getting just enough out of the low-end wide receiver.
