FanDuel Week 3 GPP Breakdown
In case you haven’t heard or noticed, this week, FanDuel changed their main slate to include only games being played on Sunday. This means that all major tournaments, such as the Sunday Million, will no longer include Monday Night games. Moving forward, the FanDuel GPP Breakdown will focus on the Sunday-only slate. If there are plays worth mentioning in the other slates, they will be noted as such.
During the offseason, Chris Raybon and I put together a set of guidelines for FanDuel GPPs. These guidelines are meant to serve as a convenient reference to use while you build your lineups.
In addition to the handy guidelines, always keep in mind the principles outlined in the Definitive Guide to Stacking on FanDuel, and you’ll be well on your way to the top of the leaderboard.

Besides the fact that Detroit has a porous secondary, Green Bay threw on almost 70 percent of their red zone plays last year and has averaged over 60 percent red zone passing in the McCarthy/Rodgers era.
