DFS Week 1 Main Slate

DFS Week 1 Main Slate

QB

Carson Wentz QB Eagles ($5700 DK) The Eagles placed a lot of resources towards the offense over the offseason with the addition of DeSean Jackson, Miles Sanders and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside among others. Wentz is a strong start this week and should pick apart a poor Redskins defence. 

Kirk Cousins QB Vikings ($5500 DK) is extremely underpriced as he takes on the Atlanta Falcons, a team that finished 28th in the league in pass defense in 2018. Confidently lock Cousins into your NFL DFS lineups at a fraction of the cost of several comparable quarterbacks and look for a huge return on value.

Matthew Stafford QB Lions ($5400 DK) The Lions should be a run-heavy offense in 2019, but Week 1 could be the chance for Stafford to feast to his three-headed monster at receiver of Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones, and Danny Amendola. (My Play Of The Week) 

RB

Christian McCaffery RB Panthers ($8800 DK) McCaffrey and the Panthers face the Los Angeles Rams, who were in the bottom half of the NFL last season against the run, allowing over 120 yards per game. In the 2019 preseason

Chris Carson RB Seahawks ($5700 DK) If you don’t have daily fantasy exposure to Carson this weekend, you must hate Last year, the Seahawks led the league in rushing, and now they are big home favorites against a Bengals defense that last year allowed the third most production to opposing running backs. 

Mark Ingram RB Ravens ($5100 DK) Ingram draws a Dolphins defence that ranked second worst in run defense last season. The Dolphins allowed 143.7 yards on the ground and tied for fifth worst in rushing touchdowns allowed per game. Fire up this power back. 

WR

Chris Godwin WR Tampa ($6200 DK) The 49ers allowed the most touchdowns to opposing receivers last season, and Godwin and Mike Evans should feast in Week 1. Comfortably get Godwin into your week one DFS lineup.

Marvin Jones JR WR Lions ($4800 DK) Arizona is starting Tramaine Brock and rookie Byron Murphy at CB. Marvin Jones should devour either of those two and a lot cheaper than Kenny Golladay. (Stack with Stafford) 

Micheal Gallup WR Cowboys ($4300 DK) It’s a good bet that Janoris Jenkins will be charged with Cooper, leaving the speedy Gallup to work mostly on rookie DeAndre Baker, whom he can roast for at least one long scoring play. 

TE

Hunter Henry TE Chargers ($3900 DK) Henry’s first three seasons in the NFL have been plagued with injuries. The pass-catching tight end will make his return in Week 1 against the Indianapolis Colts, who allowed the most receptions to TEs last year.

Delaine Walker TE Titans ($3500 DK) Mariota’s favourite target. Yes the Browns’ defense is good in a lot of places, but it can be vulnerable to tight ends and he’s still the most reliable Titans pass catcher.

Will Dissly TE Seahawks ($2900 DK) The Bengals were a plus matchup for tight ends a year ago, plus Russell Wilson only has a limited amount of pass catchers to throw to. Dissly should see an up take in work, and started the season red hot last year.
