NFL Fanduel Week 1 Recap

NFL Fanduel Week 1 Recap

What a wild first week in the NFL! Plenty of surprises, scares, near misses and rising stars. Lets take a look at how our Fanduel Players to Start for Week 1 fared.

QB - Tom Brady - NE - $8,800                     16.12
QB - Carson Palmer - ARI - $6,300             18.01
A lot of QB's in the high teens/low 20's last week. We gave you two of them in the high priced Brady and bargain Palmer. Brady fell victim to 3 offensive fumbles (one of his own) that killed potential scoring drives. Palmer showed signs of developing a nice little relationship with star receiver Larry Fitzgerald. Definitely one to stash in the memory bank for the next favorable match-up. All in all, no stud here but no real bust either.

RB - Jamaal Charles - KC - $8,800             17.5
RB - Isaac Redman - PIT - $4,600                0.6
Charles and the Chiefs showed why many are picking them to be the breakout team of 2013. The offensive was very productive, led by Charles and new QB Alex Smith. 17.5 is solid, but could have been even better had he not left in the 3rd quarter due to injury. Redman, like all Steelers last week, was a complete bust. No way to sugar coat that one. If he was one of your sleeper picks you probably didn't cash this weekend.

WR - Julio Jones - ATL - $8,000                 15.1
WR - DeSaun Jackson - PHI - $5,700         19.9
Both WR picks found the endzone making for solid productive selections across the board at the position. Jones showed why he is Matt Ryan's favorite target and very well could have had a second TD if not for a poor throw from Ryan late. Boy oh boy, Jackson and the new look Eagles offense is fun to watch. Chip Kelly's high speed Oregon offense is tailor made for Jackson and QB Michael Vick. Both worth keeping an eye on moving forward.

TE - Jason Witten - DAL - $6,800                23.0
TE - Zack Sudfield - NE - $4,500                  0.0
Witten caught a pair of TD's and was fantasy gold on Sunday night. Sudfield on the other hand was anything but. After slipping on a route that led to an interception he found his way to the bench next to Steven Ridley in the Bill Belichick doghouse.

K- Steven Hauschka - SEA - $5,000            7.0

It was a low scoring affair for Seattle and Carolina last week. Hauschka hit a pair of FG's, one of 50+ to end the day with a middle of the road 7 points.

DEF - Tampa Bay - $5,100                          10.0
A foolish personal foul on defense ended up costing Tampa Bay the game and owners a few points but all in all, we'll take double digits from the defense. If only we had gone with Kansas City and their 26. On well, there's always next week...
