As I mentioned in my article last week, I've given in to the succubus that is daily fantasy games. They're just too much fun and if I'm being totally honest, I'm bounced out of the playoffs in a few leagues so it also keeps me in tune to the fantasy football world.
Last week was a ridiculous, raging success for our first tiptoe into giving suggestions on the daily front. In fact, the lineup we suggested ended up winning numberFire's $200 Freeroll and ended up 14th out of 1199 contestants in Starstreet's huge weekly freeroll. Pretty sick, huh?
- QB: Tom Brady - Projected: 21.78 - Actual: 24.82
- QB: Russell Wilson - Projected: 16.24 - Actual: 39.40
- RB: Arian Foster - Projected: 23.13 - Actual: 18.90
- RB: Marshawn Lynch - Projected: 21.61 - Actual: 19.70
- WR: Calvin Johnson - Projected: 22.61 - Actual: 22.10
- WR: Greg Jennings - Projected: 16.73 - Actual: 9.00
- TE: Antonio Gates - Projected: 10.96 - Actual: 13.10
- FLEX: Alfred Morris - Projected: 17.02 - Actual: 23.30
- FLEX: Kyle Rudolph - Projected: 10.2 - Actual: 5.20
Total Score: 175.52
numberFire Freeroll Rank: 1/91
StarStreet Weekly Freeroll Rank: 14/1199
Not bad, huh? Obviously Russell Wilson was a huge, huge surprise for us, and Tom Brady and the Patriots getting their act together in the second half did wonders for our score. We reached a little bit with Greg Jennings and Kyle Rudolph; while they certainly didn't explode, they provided some very nice value for a very low price.
The Honor Roll
A few people took our suggestions to heart and won: andrew4096, puma1408, brianzfl each walked away with a split of 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes for a total of $33.33 a piece. Those three also placed very highly in the Weekly Freeroll, scoring a ticket into StarStreet's Weekly $5k Tournament.
Other money winners from our Freeroll include uniquebach193, Djcoleslaw43, cbedwards73, djohnson, TSHWAY60, and GMrg1170an. Nice job!
