Week 2 Funny Money: Buying on the Bayou for your DFS lineup

Yahoo Sports Minute

In this week's Funny Money, Yahoo Sports' Brad Evans and Brandon Funston get animated about the attractive Daily Fantasy values for New Orleans receivers Brandin Cooks ($24) and Brandon Coleman ($17).

Last week, Cooks was held in check (four catches, 49 yards) by talented Arizona coverman Patrick Peterson, but Tampa Bay offers a reprieve for the cat-quick second-year wideout. The Buccaneers secondary was lit up by Tennessee rookie QB Marcus Mariota last week, allowing four touchdown passes. Cooks is ranked as Yahoo's No. 7 fantasy receiver for Week 2, but has more than 20 receivers going for a higher price than him in the Daily Fantasy game - a deal, that Funston says, you can't ignore.

Big Noise Evans is also getting in on the New Orleans' aerial action, chasing Saints No. 3 receiver Coleman, who scored his first career NFL touchdown in Week 1. At 6-foot-6, the towering Coleman is expected to continue to be one of Drew Brees' red zone favorites, and Evans likes his chances of finding pay dirt for the second consecutive week given the matchup with the Bucs' generous secondary.
