Now that Week 1 passed, the mistakes made can be lessons learned in Week 2.
Things were wild in Week 1 of the NFL season. There were some massive games from major stars (Russell Wilson and Davante Adams were nearly untouchable at their positions), while other stars failed to even come close to their lofty expectations (Le’Veon Bell’s issues with his head coach might be something to steer clear of all season).
This week, Fanduel fantasy players now have a better idea of what’s to come.
This week’s Sunday slate has the return of Patrick Mahomes and the rest of the Kansas City Chiefs. The Houston Texans’ weird offense is part of the picks. Pittsburgh and a bevy of possible steals isn’t just part of the Monday night slate. There’s a lot of fun options for Fanduel players to choose from that weren’t available to them last week.
There’s a lot of reactions to last week, too. Adams is now the most expensive receiver, going up $600 this week after leading in points last week. Honestly, there are so many options this week that any lineup is possible if you really want it. The deals coming around the league allows you to fill your daily fantasy lineup with stars and high-risk, high-reward plays.
The key to winning in daily fantasy is finding those players who hit big, while also avoiding the misses on the highly-priced players. Michael Thomas hurt a ton of teams last week. Some were in on Boston Scott after Miles Sanders was declared out, and that was a mistake. This week, since players know a little more going into the week, there are smarter decisions to make.
