Betting on football has become extremely popular over the years in one way or another. Some people will bet on individual games or prop bets from singular games. Fantasy football continues to grow in popularity, especially the daily fantasy contests sites like FanDuel and Draft Kings.
The beauty and horror of fantasy sports is it is essential a crapshoot. Any given player can go off on a Sunday afternoon, which makes the prospect of betting in that fashion even more fun.
So if you are already into daily fantasy contests or want to give it a shot this weekend, here is a lineup I feel can win you some money on FanDuel.
Week 10 DFS Lineup
QB: Jared Goff – Los Angeles Rams – Goff is next in line to feast on the lowly Seahawks defense. Seattle ranks dead last in the NFL, as they give up 362 passing yards per game. Goff has the weapons to make this a very valuable pick.
RB: James Robinson – Jacksonville Jaguars – Robinson has had a solid rookie campaign thus far. He has rushed for 580 yards and five touchdowns on 4.4 yards-per-carry. Green Bay has given up 4.5 yards-per-carry and 11 rushing touchdowns on the season.
RB: Antonio Gibson – Washington Football Team – Another rookie makes this week’s lineup. The Lions give up 4.7 yards-per-carry and Gibson rushes for 4.3 YPC. He has shown glimpses of what he is capable of and Sunday afternoon could be a huge day for him.
WR: Will Fuller V – Houston Texans – If you are a regular fantasy owner of Fuller, then you already know how big he has been over the past six weeks. He has a touchdown in six-straight games and is going against a Cleveland secondary that has given up 283.75 yards-per-game through the air. It could wind up being a shootout in Cleveland on Sunday.
WR: Travis Fulgham – Philadelphia Eagles – Fulgham has been one of the surprise stories of the season to this point. The second-yard receiver has 29 receptions, 435 yards, and four touchdowns on the season. He and the Eagles will travel to New Jersey to take on the Giants in a big divisional game. New York gives up 11.3 yards-per-reception and 283.8 YPG through the air.
WR: Brandon Aiyuk – San Francisco 49ers – The Saints are one of the best teams at defending the run, so the 49ers will have to rely on the passing game. Aiyuk has had his share of the injury bug, much like most of his team, but could have a solid game against the Saints who have given up 19 touchdowns in the passing game this season.
TE: T.J. Hockenson – Detroit Lions – While the Washington Football Team is the best team at defending the pass this season, they don’t do a great job on tight end, having already given up 464 receptions and six touchdowns. Hockenson’s role has been increasing over the past few weeks, with 24 targets in the past three weeks.
FLEX: Terry McLaurin – Washington Football Team – A second member of the Washington Football Team is in the lineup and it could be a big factor in determining whether or not you win some money this week. McLaurin has 50 receptions for 692 yards and three touchdowns. Detroit’s secondary has given up 1,358 yards and seven touchdowns so far.
DEF: Pittsburgh – The Steelers have one of the best defensive units on the season, despite some hiccups last week. The Steelers will play host to rookie sensation, Joe Burrow, this week, and could have a field day against the offensive line. Cincinnati has allowed Burrow to get sacked 28 times this season, while Pittsburgh leads the league in sacks with 32. Look for the Steelers to get after Burrow early and often.
