FanDuel Cash Lineup Recap: Week 1

The average cash line in the Week 1 FanDuel 50-50 contests hovered in the 110-116 point range. Here is the most-owned lineup constructed from Thursday locking contest data last week:

Player    Cost    Own   PTs
QB Sam Bradford 7500 14.8 15
RB Eddie Lacy 8500 23.2 17
RB Lamar Miller 7300 14.0 8
WR Davante Adams 5500 27.5 8
WR Jordan Matthews 6800 20.2 15
WR Julio Jones 9000 15.7 31
TE Greg Olsen 5900 18.5 2
K Brandon McManus 4500 14.7 18
DST New York Jets 4400 16.9 17
59400 18.4 131

Even with the complete dud from Greg Olsen and the tepid performances from Davante Adams and Lamar Miller, this lineup was an easy winner in cash games for Week 1. Brandon McManus and the Jets performance at bargain basement prices were highlights.

Using this approach in 2014 over the final 10 weeks of the regular season, the recommended lineup surpassed the average cash line eight times. 2015 is off to a great start. Stay tuned for the Week 2 lineup on Friday.


  1. Is it advisable to use these recommended lineups in $25 tournaments? My goal of course is not to win the whole thing as these lineups are more for cash games but I'd just like to win some easy cash as well.

  2. I generally like to put my favorite cash lineups into GPPs. Saves me from kicking myself when it outscores all my GPP lineups.
