FanDuel Week 2 Cash Game Breakdown
Week 2's pricing is a lot tighter than Week 1's, which is no surprise seeing as how it wasn't released over a month in advance. However, there are still some situations to take advantage of since pricing was released prior to the Monday night games. Because there are some high-end players in attractive matchups at QB. RB, and WR, I'm going with a barbell approach this week in terms of salary, paying up at QB and a pair of RB and WR slots while going with extremely inexpensive options at WR3 and TE that are underpriced based on the volume they received in Week 1. This allows for a roster that contains a top-2 projected QB, two top-3 projected RBs, two top-5 projected WRs, and a top-5 projected D/ST.

QB Eli Manning $8,100 vs. NO
Manning gets his turn against a Saints defense that has allowed 300 or more yards passing in 11 of its last 17 games and will be trotting out a cornerback corps consisting entirely of rookies and journeymen signed in the past two weeks (more on that in Odell Beckham’s blurb). The Giants team total is approaching 29 points (second-highest on the slate to Carolina as of this writing) and the game’s over/under is currently 53, by far the highest on the slate. Since head coach Ben McAdoo took over as offensive coordinator in 2014, Manning has accounted for 79 percent of all Giants offensive TDs.
