We’ve analyzed every group’s highest-probability recreation scripts to evaluate the most probably fantasy football outcomes, together with which gamers are in line to thrive greater than anticipated in addition to fall wanting expectations.
The next preliminary advisable lineup (for tournaments, 50/50, or head-to-head competitions) goals to lock in a comparatively excessive ground whereas maximizing upside.
Rams vs. Payments prime TNF NFL DraftKings DFS picks
Right now, we’re enjoying DraftKings “Showdown Captain Mode,” which incorporates one participant who earns 1.5 instances his scoring output, plus 5 Flex gamers. The next NFL betting suggestions are primarily based on proprietary PFN predictive analytics pulled from a long time of NFL historic information. Utilizing this information, I’ve constructed dozens of fashions exhibiting actionable chances of better-than-expected and worse-than-expected outcomes.
Standards corresponding to age, sturdiness, shifting personnel, schedule, and different components assist form these last assessments. Within the coming days, I’ll regularly evaluation this lineup within the context of late-breaking NFL information, and PFN will publish my last willpower nicely earlier than subsequent week’s recreation.
Josh Allen, QB, Payments ($12,000)
I’m not anticipating a blowup recreation for Josh Allen, regardless of his consensus preseason QB1 ranking. This must be a tougher-than-expected matchup. That mentioned, Allen’s ground is as excessive as any participant on this discipline, and his capability to rack up factors on the bottom and thru the air makes him a super DFS addition.
I’m placing Allen in my Captain slot, which means he prices $18,000. So if he scores 18 DFS factors, it could translate to 1.5x that quantity (27 factors).
Matthew Stafford, QB, Rams ($10,800)
Admittedly, I’m not excited to begin Matthew Stafford on this recreation. That mentioned, assuming Buffalo’s line of defense largely shuts down the operating recreation, I’m envisioning extra dump-offs than typical, with the occasional deep cross to one in all his two big-time receivers.
Stafford is a good guess for 14+ factors, and if this contest is decrease scoring than anticipated, that quantity may make him one of many recreation’s highest scorers.
Gabriel Davis, WR, Payments ($7,200)
Stefon Diggs prices extra, and I believe their upsides are comparable towards the Rams. Once we final noticed Gabriel Davis in a recreation that mattered within the standings, he scored 4 touchdowns on 201 receiving yards. Now, let’s not child ourselves. A 5-60-1 receiving line can be excellent in Week 1. Let’s additionally perceive that Davis may realistically go toe-to-toe with Diggs all season.
Allen Robinson, WR, Rams ($6,200)
Ignore what Allen Robinson did (or, quite, didn’t do) final season. He stays an upper-end NFL receiver and has now landed in an almost superb offense. Whereas most eyes might be on Cooper Kupp, Robinson may push for equal seems to be — and yardage — within the Rams’ opener. I see this as a press release recreation for a participant the Bears gave up on too quickly.
Tyler Bass, Ok, Payments ($4,000)
That is the place issues get fascinating. With $7,800 in wage remaining, we may add somebody like Dawson Knox after which go ultra-cheap with Tutu Atwell (one in all my favourite non-starters within the league). However I merely don’t understand how LA plans to make the most of Atwell, and each groups have very succesful kickers who can hit from deep. So I’m comfy betting on 10+ DFS factors from Tyler Bass.
Matt Homosexual, Ok, Rams ($3,800)
After all, that leaves us with Matt Homosexual. Homosexual related on two or extra discipline targets in 12 video games final 12 months whereas lacking solely one in all his first 32 makes an attempt. For a group that gained every of their last three playoff video games by three factors, Homosexual was one of many under-the-radar heroes. Towards a tricky Payments protection, don’t be shocked if he will get 5+ makes an attempt.
