The BeerBarrel Sports Writers FanDuel Face-off – Week 2


In the second edition of our BeerBarrel Sports writer’s Fanduel face-off, we took on Week 14 of the NFL. Each of us five writers compiled the team we thought could best carry us to victory. Unlike last week, where all five of us had relatively strong teams, Week 14 brought nothing of the sort, as all of us struggled mightily, with only one writer, the winner Derrike, outscoring the fifth-place finisher’s total from last week (91.62 pts). Without further ado, here are the results:

Winner: 

Derrike Palmer – 99.88 pts

Josh Hardy – 88.26 pts
Thomas Buckley – 75.2 pts
Kayne Gilcris – 72.1 pts
Jeff Beazley – 68.48 pts
