The BeerBarrel Sports Writers FanDuel Face-off- Week 3


In our third edition of the BeerBarrel Sports writer’s Fanduel face-off, we waged war in our third consecutive week of football, taking on Week 15 of the NFL season. The five of us writers utilized our $60k salary caps to put together the team we thought would give us the best opportunity to outscore one another. Week 3 of the challenge brought us our third straight week with a different winner, while also bringing our first two-time last-place finisher. Let’s take a look at the results:

Thomas Buckley- 117.2 pts

Kayne Gilcris – 114.28 pts
