Fantasy Cruncher NFL Week 2 DFS Lineup Optimizer

The first week of the NFL has come and gone and one DFS player won $2 mil on DraftKings thanks to a 2nd touchdown run by Carlos Hyde!

Don't even think about making a DraftKings, FanDuel, FantasyAces or a Yahoo DFS lineup without the Lineup Optimizer via

Save Time DFS Lineup OptimizerFantasy Cruncher doesn’t remove the fun of creating your lineup, it speeds up the process to create the most optimal lineup. How many lineups could you create in ten minutes? One? Five? Ten? Fantasy Cruncher can create 50 totally unique lineups in under one minute. Create more lineups, save more time.

Expert Projections

For our optimizer to work, you need projections. Luckily we supply those for you in the form of our expert daily fantasy projections, created by our very own pool of professional players. Each sport (NBA, NFL, NHL, MLB) has player projections created by one of our experts. This gives you an excellent base to create your lineups from.

Week 2 DFS Advice

Using the Fantasy Cruncher lineup optimizer, we created 100 lineups.  Except this time, we removed all of the players we believe will be owned by a majority of DFS players, guys like Drew Brees, Danny Woodhead, Lamar Miller, Antonio Brown, Brandon Coleman and Jason Witten.

We also removed some of the very expensive players like Aaron Rodgers, Jeremy Hill and Julio Jones.  What we were let with were players who would be affordable, are projected to produce solid point totals and may be that one guy you own that makes your roster just unique enough to take home the top prize!

If you decide to steer clear of Brees, Matt Ryan is probably your best bet.  Rodgers is facing Seattle, Tom Brady gets the Bills and Andrew Luck faces the Jets.

We do not suggest banking of Marcus Mariota doubling up on a 4 TD performance.   Remember, he only completed 13 passes for 209 yards.

Ameer Abdullah, Justin Forsett and Chris Ivory are the play at RB/FLEX.  If you can afford Forte, he will almost always total right around 100 yards from scrimmage, but he will have to do so against the Cardinals defense.

Adrian Peterson and the Vikings looked out of sync on Monday Night and is too expensive to consider.

How do you feel about DeMarco Murray only getting 8 carries on MNF, but going up against the Cowboys, his old team?!  He did score twice... 

Jordan Matthews, who caught 10 passes for 102 yards, dropped the one ball he needed to catch, which turned into a game clinching interception.  He will be looking to redem himself in Week 2 and could be a nice value.  Keenan Allen quietly caught 15 passes for 166 yards and while I don't expect him to repeat those numbers, Antonio Gates is still suspended and a concussion could keep Ladarius Green out as well, so plenty of targets.
