Preseason DraftKings Plays: Week 2

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.

    Any other recommendations for just Thursday night plays? I’m looking for another WR and another FLEX. Was thinking about going with a combination of Rashad Ross, Ryan Broyles, Andre Roberts, Deonte Thompson, Vince Mayle, and Bronson Hill. Any recommendations of that bunch, or any added recommendations?

    Great job on preseason week 2. Being too lazy to research preseason games and needing my first football fix, I utilized many your picks for a nice W. Tip O’ the cap.
