The Daily Dos & Don'ts - Week 1 DFS Advice (2017)

Stagg Party's Week 1 DFS

 

Pillar: Amari Cooper – FanDuel - $7,600 / DraftKings - $7,200

This week, while everyone will be building his or her lineups around two stalwart running backs, I will play slightly different and run out some high priced receivers to provide a contrarian look. Cooper actually ranks as a borderline top-10 wide receiver depending on your preferred site, but has the upside for much more. While Cooper is more of a GPP play because of his high ceiling, Tennessee’s weak secondary also give him so cash game appeal. 25% of Amari Cooper’s 32 career games have gone for over 20 PPR fantasy points, and nine have gone for over 100 yards, so if there is a bonus system, he has a good likelihood to hit that mark. Amari’s price allows him to be one of the first players to lock in and still pay up at another spot should you wish. Tennessee allowed the most yards to opposing wide receivers and second most catches. With a bulked up physique and a dominant display this preseason, Cooper could get hot from the start.

 

Sleeper: Doug Baldwin – FanDuel - $7,500 / DraftKings - $6,700

Doug Baldwin is another receiver I will be spending a little more cash on while most will be forced to go dumpster diving if they go with the jamthemin strategy with Le’Veon Bell and David Johnson. Badlwin was in this same spot against the Packers last year, and disappointed despite many putting him in as a lineup lock. Disappointment in prime spots typically leads to lower ownership, but the way he was drafted this offseason leads me to believe he will be heavily owned as he is priced outside of the top ten receivers. Baldwin’s weekly volatility makes him more of a gpp play, but the tournament winning upside is there. Baldwin has played 36 games including the playoffs over the last two seasons, 33% of those have gone for over 20 points in PPR leagues. Baldwin’s price relative to his scoring upside gives him a slot in my rosters.

 

Low Cost Dart Throw: DeShone Kizer – FanDuel - $6,000 / Draftkings - $4,800 

Back to the well with cheap rookie quarterbacks who can run the rock to give you a nice floor. Let’s play a game, what does it take for DeShone Kizer to three X on FanDuel? So how can DeShone get to 18 fantasy points for you this week and give your roster some much needed savings. Let’s see he could throw for 275 yards one touchdown and no picks with 30 rushing yards. He could throw for 250 yards with two touchdowns an interception and ten yards rushing. Or he could have a Tyrod Taylor like game and pass for 200 yards throw one touchdown and rush for 40 yards. These are all well within his range of outcomes, while he isn’t a viable cash game play, for tournaments he can be used in a handful of lineups to add some diversity to your plays.

  

I’d Avoid: Ezekiel Elliott - FanDuel - $8,700 / Draftkings - $8,100

Ezekiel Elliott got his suspension stayed for at least one week, so many will flock to him. For those who may not have gotten a redraft share, they may try and play him in a game where he looks locked and loaded for a big workload should he be on hiatus for the next six weeks of the season depending on the results of the TRO hearing tomorrow.  The Giants were one of the best squads at bottling up Zeke last season. Holding him to 51 yards on 20 carries and a touchdown in game one and a catch on two targets for one yard in their first tilt. In the second, Elliott rushed 24 times for 107 yards and no scores and failed to catch any of his two targets. On the season, the Giants allowed the fifth fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs and possess some of the best run defenders in the league on their defensive line. While Zeke may possess a big workload this week, the overall score upside leaves him on the outside of my rosters looking in.

 

 

 

ØC's Week 1 DFS

 

Pillar: QB, Russell Wilson – FanDuel - $8,000 / DraftKings - $6,900

Wilson leads a powerful offense into Green Bay on Sunday with a chip on his shoulder. Russell was lambasted back in Week 14 of the 2016 regular season when he threw five interceptions in a 38-10 loss. I think he will come back with a vengeance and a healthy core of running backs to assist. Wilson had six games of 21 or more FF points last season and Packers were dreadful against fantasy QBs, allowing the second most (23.3) FF points per game to opposing passers. Wilson is locked and loaded as my Daily Pillar in a high scoring affair.


Sleeper: WR, Kelvin Benjamin – FanDuel - $6,500 / Draft Kings - $5,900

Kelvin Benjamin will lead the re-vamped Carolina Panthers into San Francisco and put on a show. The Niners were the fourth worst defense against opposing fantasy wide receivers in 2016, allowing 25.3 FF points per game to wide outs. Benjamin is a massive target and a staple in the red-zone when the Panthers dial up the pass. Kelvin collected 91 yards on six receptions while adding a TD in the first week last year and could easily surpass those numbers on Sunday. At less than $6,000, Kelvin will be a bargain in Week 1.

 

Low Cost Dart Throw: WR, Mohamed Sanu – FanDuel - $4,800 / DraftKings $4,200

The only way Chicago can come close to an upset in Week one against last year’s best offense is to stack the line and double cover Julio Jones. This will lead WR2, Mohamed Sanu open all day long. In the last three games daily fantasy production was tracked, Sanu posted 16.9, 14.4, and 13.2 FF points at the end of 2016. This included a touchdown in each of those games and I see no reason why he can’t continue to reach this production. Many of these scores were at home so the opening week road game may cause some challenges, plus Chicago has at worse an average secondary.

 

I'd Avoid: TE, Jordan Reed – FanDuel - $7,100 / DraftKings $5,900

Jordan Reed lives on the injury report, this time it’s a toe injury just a few weeks after he was activated from the PUP list. Combine Jordan’s durability with a first Week match-up against the second toughest defense against fantasy tight ends and you get a recipe for failure. Reed snagged a late touchdown in Week 17 last season but hasn’t been fantasy relevant since his two touchdown performance on Thanksgiving when he also left with a dislocated shoulder. There are many ends with cheaper price tags you can consider for better fantasy output.

 

 

 

 

d-Rx's Week 1 DFS

 

Pillar: Julio Jones - FanDuel - $9,000 / DraftKings - $8,500

This Bears defensive secondary is totally new after an offseason reboot. They were an above average unit last season against WRs for fantasy points against on FanDuel and DraftKings, but you can’t use those metrics for this season because it’s all new faces this time around. Prince Amukamara was going to be covering Julio Jones (gulp), but he’s out with an ankle injury. But truth be told, I think it’s less about what the Bears do or don’t have, and more about the demons that Ryan and Julio have to exorcise after their heartbreaking Super Bowl loss in February. If They put up a nice win and everyone puts up nice stats, people will stop looking in the rear-view mirror and focus on the Falcons for 2017, who should again put up the most fantasy points of any NFL offense. This will probably be the most expensive Julio will cost all season, but I’m going all in!

  

Sleeper: Tyrod Taylor - FanDuel - $7,500 / DraftKings - $6,200

Great matchup against the Jets here for Tygod. He comes at a reasonable price and should be ready to brush off the cob webs and get the post-Sammy era going fast and early. Hopefully, the cloudiness from the concussion is behind him and he starts off hot with his 2 new weapons at wideout in rookie Zay Jones (another guy I am playing at a value on my DFS teams, see stack below) and Jordan Matthews who was just traded from the Eagles. This is a litmus test for this Bills offense that I firmly believe they pass with flying colors. I’m digging the Bills offense on the ground and through the air this season.

 

Low Cost Dart Throw: Evan Engram - FanDuel - $4,900 / DraftKings - $2,900 

Even if Odell Beckham plays, he’s going to be 50% of himself. Marshall has been banged up as well. I think Engram is the one that you move up in this one, because the Cowboys aren’t good against TEs. Last season, they were second worst in giving up #FF points to tight ends in DraftKings at 17.3 fantasy points per game, and they ranked just as poorly in FanDuel allowing 13.6 points to the position. Evan is essentially a WR that is faster than a lot of the best WRs in the league (I’m looking at you Antonio Brown) and will be a matchup nightmare for the Cowboys linebackers. Watch McAdoo get his new shiny toy going early to set the tone for teams across the league that the Giants offense has a lot of weapons this time around. 

  

I'd Avoid: Ty Montgomery - FanDuel - $6,600 / DraftKings - $5,800

The Seahawks defense looks fired up this season, and they are a top 5 team at stopping RBs from scoring #FF points against them. I think Ty gets his ass handed to him this week and has owners that over-drafted him worried sick about how well he can hold up this season. With Ajayi out this week he’s a top 10 back in salary on DraftKings and 14th at RB in FD. No thanks, to rich for my blood.
