Week 1 FanDuel Advice

By Kevin English 11:09am EDT 9/7/17


Yesterday, Jared brought you his thoughts on DraftKings for Week 1. Today, it’s time to tackle FanDuel’s format.

With Week 1 kicking off tonight, let’s jump right into the action…


QB

Play of the Week: Marcus Mariota, Titans ($7,800)

From a value-driven perspective, Mariota gets the nod here because he sits #1 in our $/point rankings. He lands 4th in our projected fantasy points, yet FanDuel has 9 QBs with higher salaries.

The sharps in Vegas certainly expect points here, as the O/U of 50.5 is tied for the highest total of the week. A quick glance at Oakland’s defense is really all you need, though. CB Sean Smith struggled on the field this summer and was arrested off it in August. 1st round rookie CB Gareon Conley missed most of the summer due to a leg injury, while 2nd-round S Obi Melifonwu recently landed on IR with a knee injury.

An upgraded supporting cast only raises Mariota’s ceiling as he enters his 3rd NFL campaign. Consider him a top tournament target, with TE Delanie Walker completing a potential stack.
