Changes are afoot, and all source of that statement will become clearer as time passes, but, as we head into the post-season, let's take a look at playing some daily formats to keep it interesting for the remainder of the season.
For this year, I am going to FanDuel, playing the Sunday Night/Monday Night Challenge this week to get our feet wet.
I don't know about you, but I don't have a lot of experience playing Daily formats, but, if you are like me, you love playing games, so to start, by the time you read my words, you will know if I got the first half of the two-game equation, meaning there might be some tension Monday night when the Broncos and Bengals mix it up.
So, here goes:
QB-Russell Wilson (Seattle, $8600): Not exactly a no-brainer, as Peyton Manning was also available, but I am guessing the Arizona offense, behind Ryan Lindley, will struggle at the hands of the NFL's best defense, and that will afford opportunities for Wilson.
RB-Robert Turbin (Seattle, $4500): Tempted to go Lynch, but I think that despite Arizona's strong defense, this game will not really be that much in question halfway into the second quarter. As a result, I think Lynch will get some down time to rest his body, and Turbin will get a chance to shine a bit.
RB-C.J. Anderson (Broncos, $7800): He's been a monster the past month, and I suspect the very good Denver defense will have Andy Dalton on the defensive, and as a resutl, some ball control will give Anderson the shot to show he is the starter going into 2015.
WR-Emmanuel Sanders (Denver, $8100): Just because Anderson runs doesn't mean Peyton won't throw, and Sanders is his favorite.
WR-A.J. Green (Bengals, $8600): Probably the best WR suiting up once Sunday night arrives. I think Dalton will be playing catch-up, so that suggests some big plays intended for his best guy.
TE-Julius Thomas (Denver, $6000): Pretty hard to go wrong with anyone on the receiving end of a Peyton Manning pass. I think this game will remind us that if Seattle is the best team in the NFC, Denver is the best in the AFC (sorry New England).
PK-Chandler Catanzaro (Arizona, $4900): I really wanted Steven Hauschka here, but there are limits to how many players on a given team you can have. And, Catanzaro is pretty good, and might afford the only chances to score for his team.
DEF-Seattle Seahawks ($5500): Much of this week's roster is rooted in an inexperienced QB (Lindley) facing the best defense in the league. That suggests some turnovers and mistakes simply because of lack of experience. Logically, if the bet is against the Arizona offense, then if that premise is correct, the opportunities favor the Seattle defense. So, we put our money on that.
