The end of the season is on the horizon, and it’s time to make up for any losses with this week’s FanDuel lineup.
The NFL schedule is coming to a close, with just two weeks left in the regular season, fantasy players are running out of time to make a profit on their FanDuel lineups. The great part about being a FanDuel player is it takes just one week to make enough money for the rest of the year.
This week is the last week where everyone is going to play their starters. There are a lot of teams who will likely have very little to play for next week (the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills come to mind). This is also a weird schedule this week, with Friday and Saturday games to go along with the usual Sunday night and Monday night games. That takes off some great offenses, like the New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Arizona Cardinals.
Speaking of Saints, losing Michael Thomas mid-week was a surprise that really hurt lineups. The same goes for the loss of Julio Jones. That’s happened a lot this season, where star players who were expected to be available on Monday had no chance of making it to Sunday. Then, there are star players like Christian McCaffrey and George Kittle who were a long shot to make lineups, and once again they were on the sidelines.
There are still some juicy matchups to be had. The Chiefs are taking on the porous Atlanta Falcons secondary fresh off a blown lead to Tom Brady. The Cleveland Browns’ punishing run game goes up against a no-longer-winless New York Jets team that is still terrible. Pittsburgh and Indianapolis go head to head in one of the best games of the week. The Seattle Seahawks and Los Angeles Rams go into next week’s matchup both facing major question marks.
This will help make some stellar lineups this week which hopefully saves from the losses this season might have brought to your previous lineups.
