2017 Week 2 NFL Fantasy Picks and Lineups

2017 NFL Week 2 Fantasy Football Picks

FanDuel and DraftKings Week 1 PicksNFL Week 1 has come and gone and sadly our picks did not win us the Billion Dollars which would have set us up for multiple lives, nor did we hit the 1st place podium in the Fantasy Football Millionaire.

We were happy with our picks that netting us a decent profit on the week allowing us to throw more $20 darts at this week's Million Dollar Contest.

Some big names last week were dosappointments for fantasy players but that won't be a trend for the rest of the 2017 NFL Fantasy Football season.

Fantasy Football Freeroll

This week we have both FanDuel fantasy football picks for the Sunday Million contest and DraftKings Fantasy Football Millionaire picks that we will be playing in various lineups. These fantasy football picks are players that we like based on their projected permormance and their value as a salary cap pick. Also don't forget to load up on some FREE Fantasy Football Contests happening this week.

FanDuel Fantasy Picks for the Sunday Million

QB – Quarterback Picks

Derek Carr $8,300 – This may be a weekly trend for this fantasy space of looking to see who the NY Jets are playing and picking the opposing QB. This week David Carr lands on the Wheel of Fortune and should post nice numbers in the 1st half...then probably hand off the ball the second half to preserve the early lead.

Jameis Winston $7,800 – We actually had Winston in a bunch of lineups last week and then when the game was postponed we had to change everything up. The Bucs get the Bears this week that were pretty solid defensively against the Falcons but with an extra week to prep and playing at home, look for Winston to air things out.

RB – Running Back Picks

Marshawn Lynch $7,200 - Beastmode had a good Raiders debut and will get to showcase his power again aganst the Jets. Look for the offense to get a big lead early and then let Lynch eat up the clock the rest of the way. He may not have a ton of TD's and probably very little need to catch the ball but his rush yards should be huge.

Kerwynn Williams $6,100 – Starter David Johnson may be missing multiple weeks so the 1st crack at carries will be Williams. Facing a bad Colts defense this will be Williams' chance to shine and if he doesn't 3rd stringer Andre Ellington will get a look. Williams is a bit of a risk but a solid chance to take in a GPP like the FanDuel Sunday Million. ***Update - The Cardinals have signed Chris Johnson who was cut before the start of the season. Williams will get 1st crack but be a bit risky now***.

WR – Wide Receiver Picks

Mike Evans $8,500 – A higher cost than we'd like to pay for a WR but we like the matchup against the Bears. Stacked with J. Winston, Evans should hit fantasy paydirt in NFL Week 2!

Larry Fitzgerald $6,600 Fitzgerald saw 13 targets but was pressured by the Lions defense making only 6 catches...That won't be a worry against the Colts which are hurting defensively. Look for Fitzgerald to put up some nice fantasy numbers this week.

TE – Tight End Picks

Delanie Walker $6,200 – Walker proved once again that he is Mariota's favorite target hauling in seven of nine targets for 76 yards. Facing the Jags this week will be no challenge and should see Walker hitting the endzone to add to his totals.


Oakland Raiders $5,300 – The Jets are bad and scoring won't be easy no matter who they play. It be higher price tag for the Raiders defense but a pretty safe pick nonetheless.

FanDuel has their Sunday Million Contest with a prize pool of $3 Million for NFL Week 2 and a 1st place prize of $1 Million...for just $7 - how can you pass this up!

DraftKings Fantasy Football Picks for Fantasy Football Millionaire

QB – Quarterback Picks

Tom Brady $7,900 – Tom Brady lost last week and that can't be sitting well with him. Now he gets to face a Saints team in the highest over/under total for week 2. Expect a shootout and expect Brady to go big!

Carson Palmer $6,000 – Palmer didn't look great last week but facing the Colts this week should solve that. With the running back game suffering I like the Cardinals to try to put up some points early, work out some offensive kinks and then try to run out the clock.

RB – Running Back Picks

Christian McCaffrey $5,600 – McCaffrey had a nice debut last week and split carries as expected with Stewart. This week I see the Panthers dominating the Bills and as they run the clock, look for McCaffrey to get some more looks to see what the rookie can do.

Dalvin Cook $5,900 – Cook had a great rookie debut last week and should be looked at again this week facing a weak Steler defense. The Vikings may have to throw more to keep up with the Steelers offense but that just means more dump passes to Cook increasing his PPR points.

WR – Wide Receiver Picks

Brandin Cooks $8,200 – Yes it will be an expensive QB/WR stack taking Brady and Cooks but in a shootout like this and Cooks facing his former team, I could see the Patriots trying to feed him the ball a bit more than last week.

Tyreek Hill – $6,200 – Hard to deny that Hill is a huge playmaker and with his speed he has the potential to break out a long TD at any time. He gave Alex Smith confidence in him last week and should get more targets this week.

TE – Tight End Picks

Rob Gronkowski $6,900 – Although he's the highest priced tight end at DraftKings, he's worth it at the $6,900 salary cap hit in a game that will see a lot of fantasy points scored.


Carolina Panthers $3,600 – OK so the Panthers only gave up 3 points last week to the 49ers and this week they get another bad team in the Bills. Cheap defense that should pay off in decenty points this week.
