FanDuel Sunday Cash Lineups

As the week's practices wind down, we're getting a clearer picture of the injury situations across the league, including closely-watched players like Drew Brees, Alshon Jeffery, and Eddie Lacy. As always, I commend to everyone who is monitoring an injury situation the work of Footballguys Dr. Jene Bramel (his Twitter Feed; his Columns at and his Thursday injury-related CrackingFanDuel Blog post Thursday Injury Expectations ) and Craig Zumsteg's weekly Injury Insight column.

Looking at the Staff Sunday Cash Lineups (scroll down past the Thursday material):

No Consensus at Tight End

There is a wide variety of tight ends in play across the Staff's Sunday lineups - eight different tight ends are on at least one of the 13 lineups - Greg Olsen ($5,900) appears on three of the 13, and Tyler Eifert ($5,900) is also favored on three of the 13. Kyle Rudolph ($5,300) appears on two of the rosters, with Rob Gronkowski ($8,400), Delanie Walker ($5,200), Jimmy Graham ($6,300), Coby Fleener ($4,900), and Ladarius Green ($5,600) checking in on one roster each.

Notable Running Back Pairing

Marshawn Lynch ($8,700) is heavily favored this week, appearing on nine of the lineups, and he is paired with Jonathan Stewart ($6,500) on three of the lineups. The weak defenses of both these running back's opponents (Chicago and New Orleans, respective) and the fact that both of these teams look likely to start second-string quarterbacks (Jimmy Clausen and Luke McCown) are spurring the interest in Lynch and Stewart.

Dominant Defenses

Seattle at home vs. Chicago ($5,300), Denver at Detroit ($4,600), and the Jets at home vs. Philadelphia ($4,500) are the favored defenses this week, with Seattle appearing on four rosters, while Denver and the Jets checked in on two. As I note in my comments regarding New York: "The Jets have four interceptions and six fumble recoveries over two games - they are creating turnovers at a torrid rate! This, and the Eagles' offense is playing horridly right now - the Jets' D should feast on the inept Eagles at home on Sunday."

Three Way Tie at Placekicker

Stephen Gostkowski ($5,000), Graham Gano ($4,700) and Chandler Catanzaro ($4,700) each drew three adherents among the Staff this week - each playing for teams that should score prolifically on Sunday.

Good Luck on FanDuel this weekend everyone!
