This week's Fanduel game is a little more challenging because there are only four teams to choose players from. That means that you're going to have be strategic about which players you pick considering everyone else is going to be picking the best players, too.

If you're not familiar with Fanduel, it's a one-week fantasy football game so there is no draft where you'll keep players for the entire season. You enter one of the games and you're given a salary cap of $60,000. You must fill out your team while staying under that salary cap. The best players who score the most points -- Tom Brady, Andrew Luck, Aaron Rodgers, etc -- are the most expensive players. Smart people can figure out the inefficiencies in the prices -- maybe a receiver has a good matchup with a cornerback -- and hit on those players.

With only four teams playing you need to get lucky on a few players. If I knew the secret to winning, I probably wouldn't be sitting here typing this. I would be rich. The game is quite fun though if you haven't tried it yet.
