FanDuel Picks Week Two: NFL DFS Lineup Advice for Daily Fantasy Football GPP Tournaments

The fun doesn’t stop there. To complement our quartet of elite studs, we have a trio young and affordable big-play receivers. Jalen Hurts could be one of the most expensive QBs in weeks, so we are hammering him as hard as we can. We want him to be paired with his best receiver. DeVonta Smith, however, is still cheap. Check out the FanDuel lineup below for more options to help you get to the top in your NFL DFS tournaments.

We should first outline the rules of FanDuel DFS before we move on to the picks. The only exceptions are four point passing TDs and halfpoint PPR.

FanDuel Picks Week Two: NFL DFS Lineup for GPP Tournaments


Sunday Main Slate, $60,000 Budget, not more than 4 players from one team

QB Jalenhurts, Eagles at the 49ers ($7.800). HUTTS showed off both his arms and legs during the Eagles’ Week 1-winning rout of the Falcons. Although the Eagles have the advantage of being at home, it is not as easy against an opponent with more experience. We also know how much damage fantasy quarterbacks can cause.

Lineup Builder

RB Dalvin Cook, Vikings @ Cardinals ($9,200). Christian McCaffrey ($10,000), is not a force to be included in the mix, so we will “settleā€ on Cook. Cook has a good chance of seeing a lot. This contest opened with Vegas opening the game at 49.5. There’s still shootout potential. Cook will be a certain winner, however, more Vikings points equals more for us.

RB David Montgomery, Bears vs. Bengals ($7,300). Montgomery was able to post a respectable score of 20 points on Sunday, but it wasn’t enough. At home, the Bears are expected to have a better outlook against the Bengals. Montgomery won’t have to worry about volume this season. Montgomery will be able to score a touchdown if he gets some support from his teammates on Sunday.

Steelers vs. Raiders ($5,900). Claypool, who had five targets, was third among Steelers, although he did take a 25-yard carry, which showed his versatility and ability to make big plays. The matchup against the Bills in Week 1 was going to be tough. Claypool has a great opportunity to exploit the Raiders’ weakness and make some big plays. As a rookie, he scored nine touchdowns and will be able to find the paint again this season.

WR DeVonta Smith Eagles vs. 49ers $55,600 His quarterback will be paired with him in an interesting matchup. This may have more scoring potential that the initial 45.5 under/over set by Vegas betting sites. Although it is not clear how Smith will be used as a target hog in Philly at this time, it seems reasonable to believe that Smith will operate as the No. 1.

WEEK 2 STANDARDRANKINGS

Quarterback | Running Back | Wide Receiver | Tight End | D/ST | Kicker

WR Ja’Marr Chase, Bengals @ Bears ($5,500). This week, we’re taking some of the responsibility off one more rookie. Chase, like Smith, made an impressive debut, leading the Bengals’ in yards, targets and receptions. Chase will likely be traded to Tee Higgins (6,000), for the role of lead quarterback, but he was selected No. We drafted Chase No. 5 for a reason. As long as he is the less expensive of the two we will be interested.

TE George Kittle 49ers @ Eagles $6,700 A healthy Kittle is a strong threat to be the overall TE1. Kittle will likely be rostered heavily, although Darren Waller ($7,000), who is a more expensive option, has a higher price. We’re happy to split the profits. In a meeting with the Eagles in 2020, he was worth 32.6 FD points and we are excited about the possibility of another great performance.

WEEK 2 PPRRANKINGS

Quarterback | Running Back | Wide Receiver | Tight End | D/ST | Kicker

FLEX(RB) Jonathan Taylor Colts Vs. Rams (7,200). Taylor had 14.6 FD points in Week 1. However, we loved to see him make six grabs on seven targets. Total yardage will not be an issue if Taylor continues to play a key role in the passing game. The touchdowns will be the only thing we’ll watch, which was 12 for his rookie year.

Denver Broncos DEF @ Jaguars ($4,600). Is it beginning to feel like Urban Meyer’s experiment in Jacksonville has already failed? While we won’t pretend that the Broncos have shut down an efficient offensive force in the Giants’, the Jags don’t seem to be clicking. As we look for big plays and takeaways, we’re prepared to spend a little more on defense. 52 passes were attempted by the Jags and they converted only three of 11 third downs. So there should be plenty of opportunities for Week 2.
