The Arrowhead Pride Fanduel league is starting to fill up. You can join our league by clicking HERE. As I write this, there are 75 people in our league.

If you haven't heard of Fanduel then you haven't turned on the TV or gotten online in the past few weeks because they are everywhere. Fanduel is a daily fantasy game where you enter a league for one week only and you pick your teams based just on that week.

You join a league with a set price to enter (ours is $5) and then you're given a $60,000 salary cap with which you need to build your team. The players expected to score the most points are the most expensive so the key is knowing which players are undervalued. Last year, for example, Travis Kelce was undervalued almost all year long. He's still a good value this year ($6,000) as the third most expensive tight end.

The other piece of advice I have is on the Chiefs defense. They had just six interceptions last year. There is NO WAY the Chiefs are going another season with just six interceptions. Expect that number to rise dramatically and expect Justin Houston to have another good season (although probably not a 20-plus sack season). The Chiefs defense is a good value at the 16th priced defense. The Houston defense, unfortunately, is probably a good play as well with JJ Watt facing the Chiefs o-line.

Now that I have told you my secrets, join our league and you could win as the top 20 are paid out.
