The top DFS bargains for Week 1
Week 1 in the NFL is the wild, wild west. Up until this very moment, all we’ve been able to do is speculate based off of last year’s numbers and extremely limited preseason play.
Everything changes this weekend.
The DFS pricing has been out in the world for a number of weeks. A lot of depth charts have changed since the release of these prices, so there are bargains galore. Next week we won’t have the same volume of cheap plays. Therefore, get in while the getting is good.
Here are some bargain bin DFS plays going into Week 1.
(Each player’s information is accompanied by three numbers: “ROI” is his historical return on investment based on fantasy performance and salary. “Matchup” measures the strength or weakness of a player’s matchup that week. “Value” scales a player’s projected point total against his weekly salary. This information is all gathered from our DFS Lineup Optimizer tool.)
