Fantasy players to avoid in Week 2 of DFS

As you look to set your Week 2 DFS lineups, you’re going to have a handful of player you love — including bargain players and locks — but there should also be some players you avoid as well.

With that in mind, here’s a list of players I’m fading in DFS this week in at least one format (cash games or tournaments). As usual, for the most part, these are player I’m fading in both formats. If there’s an exception to that — I’ll call it out.

(Note: I’m providing only DraftKings and FanDuel salaries as I live in Florida, where Yahoo does not operate.)


Andrew Luck, Indianapolis Colts (DraftKings: $7,700; FanDuel: $8,500)

Andrew Luck appears to be back to his old self, and he’s fresh off a performance as the No. 1 quarterback in DFS. So why fade him? He has two things working against him this week: He’s expensive — Luck is the fourth-highest-priced quarterback on both DraftKings and FanDuel — and he’s playing against the Denver Broncos defense, who are still excellent against the pass. They held Cam Newton to just 194 passing yards in Week 1, the 25th-most, and just one passing score.

    Is there a reason I can only see the beginning of these articles? I’m logged into my account. It’s frustrating!

      What kind of membership do you have? You need a DFS Pro or All Access to read DFS content.

  • Xatos

    If you can’t fix these articles so I can see the whole thing even when I’m logged in and I’m going to start reporting and asking for refunds this is ridiculous.

    • Tyler Loechner

      Do you have a DFS Pro or All Access membership? That is required to see the DFS content. Thanks!

      • Xatos

        Yes, of course I do.

  • Ciaff24

    This site is bullshit. Where do I go to get a refund?

  • Ali Nobani

    This is ridiculous! This problem needs to be fixed! We should be upgraded to the All Access package because of this inconvenience.

    • Tyler Loechner

      DFS content requires a DFS Pro or All Access membership. Do you have one of those? If so, and you still can’t see the article. let me know. Thanks!

  • George

    I am having the same issues as the aforementioned. Why can’t this be fixed?

    • Tyler Loechner

      Do you have All Access or DFS Pro membership? If so, you should be able to read the whole article. Let me know if you do have one of those memberships but still can’t read it.
