Welcome to the Week 3 FanDuel tournament guide. With two weeks of fantasy football in the books, it has become clear that placing well in GPPs this year requires a different strategy from previous years; the new flex spot (in place of kickers) is proving to make a big difference.

Chalk: Jimmy Garoppolo ($7,400). Jimmy G is the quarterback opposite Mahomes. He’ll be a popular pivot from Mahomes to still have action in this game.
