Week 2 FanDuel Tournament Picks

By Kevin English | Updated on Fri, 15 Sep 2023 . 8:55 PM EDT

NFL DFS Picks for Tournament and GPP Play

Quarterback

Joe Burrow, Bengals ($7,400) vs. Ravens

Ownership projection: 11%

Toss out his ugly, rain-soaked Week 1. Back home (and with the forecast looking rain-free) Burrow should smash this price tag.

The Ravens enter Sunday set to play without S Marcus Williams and CB Marlon Humphrey, so fire up Ja’Marr Chase ($8,400) as a stackable piece.

Also consider: Anthony Richardson

Running Back

Rachaad White, Buccaneers ($6,200)

Ownership projection: 10%

White piled up 19 touches last week in a close win over Minnesota. If he sees that type of workload again, he’ll be positioned to deliver for DFS players.

The Bears just surrendered 32.5 FanDuel points to Green Bay’s backfield. While the team overhauled its LB corps in free agency, a still-weak D-line says the big number isn't fluky.

Jahmyr Gibbs, Lions ($5,800) vs. Seahawks

Ownership projection: 8%

After seeing only nine (dynamic) touches in the opener, that number is expected to rise on Sunday.

Sure, he’s a poor TD bet. But at $5.8K, you can take a shot on Gibbs hitting a big play or two. The Seahawks matchup could turn into a sneaky shootout.

Also consider: Derrick Henry, Joe Mixon, James Cook

Wide Receiver

Mike Williams, Chargers ($6,700) at Titans

Ownership projection: 9%

You’re embracing a high range of outcomes any time you play Williams. But that’s just what you want for tournaments.

Projected at only 9% ownership, Williams could see an extra target or two if Austin Ekeler (ankle) is sidelined. He’ll also face a Titans secondary missing S Amani Hooker (concussion).

Chris Godwin, Buccaneers ($6,300) vs. Bears

Ownership projection: 11%

The Bucs received surprisingly effective play from Baker Mayfield in the opener. His PFF passing grade ranked 5th on the week, while he tallied zero turnover-worthy plays.

Godwin heads home to face a Bears squad that recently placed slot CB Kyler Gordon on IR. 

Jahan Dotson, Commanders ($6,200) at Broncos

Ownership projection: 2%

Terry McLaurin figures to draw CB Patrick Surtain, who limited Davante Adams to only 2 catches in the opener.

Dotson, meanwhile, should see plenty of work against CB Damarri Mathis. He gave up the bulk of Jakobi Meyer’s Week 1 line (9-81-2).

Also consider: Davante Adams, Keenan Allen, Christian Kirk, Treylon Burks 

Tight End

Travis Kelce, Chiefs ($8,500) at Jaguars

Ownership projection: 15%

HC Andy Reid confirmed that Kelce will play against Jacksonville. This matchup, ownership projection, and price all align to make him an excellent tournament option.

We’ll just keep an eye out for any reports of a snap limitation.

Also consider: George Kittle

Defense

Colts ($4,800) at Texans

Ownership projection: 5%

If you play the Colts, it’s mostly for the leverage off of people playing Dallas’ defense ($4,500).

But this isn’t some wild shot in the dark. The Texans will be without several O-linemen on Sunday, a list that might include elite LT Laremy Tunsil. Indy has enough in the front seven to create issues in C.J. Stroud’s second career start.

Also consider: Giants at Cardinals
