Are you ready to set those lineups for NFL DFS Week 2? It's been quite the tumultuous week monitoring all of the NFL injuries, watching over our daily fantasy football projections, studying all of the weekly fantasy football player rankings and, of course, playing around with whose salary fits where and which players are worth us paying up. Last week is often considered one of the toughest of the season because we all still had much to learn about coaching tendencies and how certain players were going to fit in their new offensive schemes. Some shined bright while others left us scratching our heads still . Many of those questions are supposed to be answered this week, but until the games are actually played, we have to go with what we know. Using a DFS Compare tool and our NFL Lineup Generator (DFS Lineup Optimizer) can certainly be helpful, but I recommend you study through all the content we have posted, check out my players in both the NFL DFS Playbook and Dart Board and start building based on what we actually know, not what we want to see. There's a big difference, so be careful. 

Just a few notes here about the lineups below...

The cash lineups were built solely off the players I put in the Playbook. These are the guys who, unless I have indicated otherwise, offer up the higher floor and will help you cash in your Double-Ups and 50/50s. For GPP tournaments, particularly the large-field ones, you need to find alternative routes to the cash line. I will utilize players from the Playbook and the DFS Dart Board to fill in the gaps, but what I am looking for are some lower-owned stacks that make sense based on expected game flow and other news. You may also see in the GPP lineups, there may be some names I haven't discussed this week on the site, but have talked about during the week on the Fantasy Alarm Show or even on the Fantasy Alarm Sunday Gameday Show on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio. You will also notice, though, that others on the site have mentioned some of these players in places such as the position coaches, so it's not like we're trying to hide anything from you. The only time, and I mean the only time you will see a player in a GPP lineup who hasn't been discussed is if we are using a stack and need a player from the other team coming back. But it's rare when that happens.

Again, these lineups are meant to serve as examples for you; a sounding board, as I said. They are not meant for you to plug in as your own. That's the lazy way and we don't condone it. We are trying to teach you how to be a better DFS player; we aren't lineup-sellers. You should be creating your own lineups using all the information we provide you throughout the week and then coming here to see if there is anything you may have missed or simply for an alternative perspective.

Best of luck to you this week and let's make some money!

As a reminder, when you're stacking in GPP, you always want to run someone back from the opposing team. One-sided games often turn to a running back seeing higher-than-usual volume or the back-ups start to play. For a stack to really pop, the other team needs to keep things competitive.
