DraftKings plays for preseason Week 4
Last weekend’s dress rehearsal games were the most important of the preseason for NFL teams, and tonight’s are the polar opposite. For daily fantasy sports (DFS) players, however, they offer an opportunity to exploit the unique nature of projecting games that don’t count in the standings. Essentially all players that coaches are unwilling to risk will be watching Thursday night’s proceedings from the sideline. We need to mine rosters for treasure, even if they will ultimately be put out with the trash.

If you haven’t already taken the DFS plunge, now is the time to wet your beak – even if it is simply by taking part in one of the Freerolls that DraftKings is offering. It will give you a chance to get a feel for their site or their app before the regular season kicks off. There are also low-entry qualifiers into the Week 1 Millionaire Maker, which is awarding a $2 million top prize.
