This week we had to make our final prototype to show to our class on Monday. I decided to put my skills to the test and make my only weekly team on Fan Duel for 25 cents, just to see how I do. There are 20 people in my bracket and my goal is to come in the top 5, 1st place would be great though. The way my contests works is, they give you 6,000 virtual coins to spend and you pick a quarterback, two running backs, three wide receivers, a tight end, a flex which could be a running back, wide receiver, or tight end, and lastly a defense. However, the best players like Christian McCafferty are worth the most coins. For example McCafferty is worth 11,000 coins, which doesn’t give you enough money for other players. So I look for value for example I took Elliot this week for 8,400 coins, if he gets 24 points, and McCafferty gets 25 points, Elliot did better. Now he may get 1 less point than McCafferty, but now you get an extra 2,600 coins to spend on others. So after a lot of research and consideration here is my team:
Quarter back: Sam Darnold, Running backs: Ezekiel Elliot, Aaron Jones, Wide receivers: Geronimo Allison, DeVante Parker, D.J Clark Jr, Tight end: Ryan Griffin, Flex: Stefon Diggs, Defense: New Orleans Saints.
For my presentation I will show everyone how I did, and why I took the players I took.
