Stack Eagles and Giants on FanDuel
Our final shot at a full slate of games brings with it an interesting roster-construction quandary. Do we shoehorn as many of the upper-tier receivers who appear to be in excellent matchups onto our teams, and make it work with sub-optimal fliers? And from which position should we try to cut corners to save cap room? Or should we opt for a more balanced approach, and only nibble at the expensive fruit at the top of the salary tree? At least right now, there is no one correct answer.
The apparent lack of value this week is, for now, an impediment to the first roster construction strategy. As more news comes in from Friday practices, and especially on Sunday morning, cap-saving opportunities will present themselves. That is usually the case and, especially during this chaotic final week of the season, it will be again. Staying extra plugged-in during the hours leading up to kickoff will go a long way toward deciding who finishes the 2015 NFL season on a high note.
Below are a couple of expensive quarterbacks, since many will attempt to save at the position – it has worked for most of the year – and we can construct unique rosters by spending up here. There are a few cheap running back suggestions, and some mid-range wide receiver and tight end options that should fit any strategy. Hopefully these, and the other plays that I’ve discussed this season, are worthy of your time and have helped you to be profitable. I have truly enjoyed writing them.
Happy New Year, everyone …and on with the Week 17 FanDuel tournament plays.
