DFS guide: Week 2 in FanDuel tournaments
Week 1 tournament winners didn’t score that many points. The millionaire winner scored 173.18 points. That’s a good score — no doubt — but it doesn’t even represent a 3x return on FanDuel salary, which is usually the barometer for a great tournament lineup.
We’ll probably see more points in Week 2 as the superstars get up to speed. If you cashed in last week, you’ll have to score even more to hit pay dirt this week.
Here’s my FanDuel Week 2 strategy guide for tournaments.

Week 2 outlook: FanDuel pricing and projections
The Box: The first row within each tier represents the average salary of every player in that tier. The second row represents the average projected fantasy points for every player in that tier. The third row is the average value of each player in that tier (points/salary*1000). The Box is also color coordinated within each position throughout the tiers.
I’m paying up for an expensive quarterback in cash games, and I’m probably going do it in plenty of my tournament lineups as well.
The NE-NO (56 points) and GB-ATL (54 points) games are projected to be shootouts, and there’s no other game this week with an over-under of 47.5. That means those two games are expected to produce at least one more touchdown than any other game in Week 2.
