Sunday Staff Cash Plays - FanDuel Week 2

Roaring into Sunday's slate of games, there are a lot of roster situations that bear watching - examples include: Mike Evans was limited in practice Thursday, as was LeSean McCoy. T.Y. Hilton is a game time decision this week - Reggie Bush sat out of Thursday's session , as did Delanie Walker. On the flip side of the coin, Michael Floyd, Matthew Stafford and Jonathan Stewart all practiced fully on Thursday. As always, Dr. Jene Bramel's Second Opinion Columns and Craig Zumsteg's Week Two Injury Report Insight column are required reading for DFS players, and cover the full spectrum of injury situations that are playing out in practices this week.

Looking at the FanDuel Sunday Cash Games lineups: (scroll down past the Thursday material), there are several Staff Trends to note.

Stacks are Back

For Sunday there are several Footballguys going with QB/WR stacks  - Sam Bradford ($7,500) to Jordan Matthews ($7,000)  is featured on three staff lineups, while Jason Wood is going with Drew Brees ($8,900) to Brandin Cooks ($7,400) this week -  all told, Bradford is the QB of choice for five staffers and Matthews shows up in six lineups in total.

Running Back Concordance/Discordance

Mark Ingram ($8,000) is included on three of 15 lineups; Ameer Abdullah ($6,400), five; Bishop Sankey ($6,500), five; Matt Forte ($8,900), six; and Carlos Hyde ($7,000), four. As you can see, there is a favored back at many different price points.

Despite their solid Week One performances, Chris Ivory ($6,900) and Jeremy Hill ($8,400) only made one staff lineup each this week.  As Andrew Garda highlighted in Thursday Staff Cash Plays - Adrian Peterson made nobody's short list this week. His $9,000 price point behind that patchwork line put everyone off the Minnesota rushing attack.

Hocker and Brown consensus PK picks

Zach Hocker, (NO - $4,500) and Josh Brown (NYG - $4,500) are the favored low-cost kickers this week - Hocker has five staffers starting him while Brown is in on three staff lineups. Keep an eye on the wind conditions in MetLife Stadium before you start Brown, though - winds are forecast to be around 13 MPH on Sunday and they can be swirling and unpredictable in this New Jersey venue. Hocker is indoors in the Louisiana Superdome - weather isn't a worry for him.

Good luck this weekend, everyone! Enjoy the full slate of games! - MPW
