David Johnson remains a value in Thursday DFS
If you are a serious fantasy player, chances are you are playing daily fantasy sports (DFS). It is without a doubt the next big thing in the industry and it has created a significant opportunity to make money for those who know what they are doing.
Daily fantasy operates under a budget, so the relative value a player offers at his respective price is just as important as his raw statistical production when constructing lineups. PFF Fantasy offers many great DFS resources. I’ll be focusing on Thursday games and making sure you get your lineups off to the right start each week.
Las Vegas is predicting a low scoring week in the NFL with only two games exceeding a projected over/under of 47, which makes the 45.5 projection on Thursday’s Vikings vs. Cardinals game a decent option to target in DFS relative to the rest of the league. This is particularly true of the Cardinals, who are 7.5 point favorites, giving them the fourth highest team total of the week with 26.5.
