It's always fun when you guess right about something and get a positive reward. That's what happened for many of us on Thursday night with D'Andre Swift in the Eagles-Vikings game.
When Kenneth Gainwell (ribs) was ruled out, the assumption was Swift would be the best running back for Philadelphia, ahead of Rashaad Penny and Boston Scott, but there was some uncertainty. Nick Sirianni could have easily left Swift in a complementary role and gone with Penny or Scott as his top running back, or just used a hot-hand approach with whoever was doing best.
Maybe that was his plan all along, and Swift just had the hot hand. He finished with 28 carries for 175 yards and a touchdown, along with three catches for 6 yards on three targets, and he dominated touches for Philadelphia. Scott had five carries for 40 yards and no targets, and Penny was a non-factor with three carries for 9 yards and one catch for 5 yards on one target.
When doing my DFS lineups for Thursday night, I knew Swift would be someone to target, and it paid off. Now, we have to guess right again with our lineups for Sunday.
Here are two DFS lineups for you to play on DraftKings and FanDuel for the Week 2 slate. On DraftKings, this is one of the lineups I'll be using in the $4M Fantasy Football Millionaire tournament. For FanDuel, here's one of my lineups for the $2.5M NFL Sunday Million tournament.
I hope by the time Monday gets here we're all celebrating in a big way. But, just remember, even if you only win a small amount, you're still adding to your bankroll for the season.
Which QB-WR combination is worth locking into DraftKings lineups? And which RB is worth using in lineups on both sites? ... Join SportsLine here to see Jamey Eisenberg's Week 2 DFS lineups!
