FantasyFeud has one of the more challenging salary cap games in the industry. If you used to play on DraftStreet, you’ll notice some similarities. You start a 10-man roster with a $100,000 cap in half-point PPR scoring. It’s a two-quarterback lineup and no kickers. Each week, I’m going to give you my optimized lineup.

Here’s this week’s optimized cash game lineup:
QB: Mark Sanchez
We’re going to save some money with our quarterback selections this week, and you absolutely can’t be Sanchez’s price. He’s now at the helm of Chip Kelly’s high-octane offense, and should have no problem putting up numbers. Sure, the interceptions will be there, but so will big production. In relief of Nick Foles last week, Sanchez racked up 202 yards and two touchdowns.
QB: Josh McCown
Okay, I just threw up a little bit in my mouth, but it’s going to be okay. We’re not expecting a ton out of McCown this week, so anything we get is gravy. McCown takes back over for the Bucs after riding the pine since getting knocked out of the Bucs’ Week 3 debacle of a loss to the Falcons. Is it redemption time this week? Probably not, but his price tag allows us to load up elsewhere, so we’ll take it.
RB: Matt Forte
He’s the No. 3 fantasy running back and does a bit of everything. I doubt the game script sets up for a lot of Forte on the ground, but the Bears will force feed him the ball even when they’re down. To make matters better, this often comes in the form of short dump-off passes. That’s an added bonus in this half-PPR scoring system.
RB: Ronnie Hillman
With the featured back gig all but secured, Hillman has been an extremely solid fantasy option. Over the last four weeks, only DeMarco Murray, Matt Forte, Arian Foster, and Jamaal Charles average more fantasy points per game.
WR: Jeremy Maclin
Despite somewhat suspect play, Maclin has emerged as a bona fide WR1, with massive production in each of his last two outings. Getting Maclin in our lineup allows for a stack with Sanchez as well.
WR: Paul Richardson
The rookie out of Colorado saw six targets last week. While he only caught three of them for 12 yards, it’s important that he’s getting looks. Richardson has game-breaking ability, so it may only take one play for him to go off. We get him this week for bottom dollar, so it’s excellent value.
TE: Owen Daniels
Coming off a knee scope, Daniels looked no worse for the wear last week, racking up six catches on nine targets for 53 yards. Those numbers don’t set the world on fire, but I do like his chances of continuing to see a high volume of targets and potentially finding the end zone.
The league’s No. 1 defense faces a hot Dolphins team at home. While some may fade this matchup, I’m all over it. Detroit’s pass rush should get to Ryan Tannehill early and often, potentially rattling the young quarterback. The Lions are the best value for the price this week.
FLEX: Anthony Dixon
He’s more Mike Alstott than Barry Sanders, but at this price tag, we’ll take it. Dixon figures to see the lion’s share the running back touches this week with Fred Jackson very questionable and Bryce Brown bouncing everything to the outside.
FLEX: Andre Ellington
The touchdown production hasn’t quite been there with Ellington this season, but you have to like the fact that he’s touching the ball just over 22.6 time per game. Expect Ellington to get his hands on the ball plenty against a Rams teach that gave up three scores to Chiefs running backs two weeks ago.
