Week 1 is finally here, and we already seen some great football. Each week I will be breaking down the optimal lineups for Cash & GPP projections, as well as letting the optimizer choose the optimal stack with a lineup around it. I will be running these lineups late Friday night, or early Saturday morning, so you might get something a little different with our changing projections. You can find various weekly info on the site, but I will offer up a few changes of my personal liking if I see them to these lineups. Lets jump into it!
A similar core is on both sites in terms of the optimal lineups this week. Aaron Rodgers is a better value on FanDuel at $8,300. We also get his pairing partner, Jordy Nelson this week. Both are playable in all formats for me, but you can argue that Nelson belongs in a GPPs only. It just depends on your risk tolerance. I say that also because people using Larry Fitzgerald, Aaron Rodgers, Le'Veon Bell, and Todd Gurley. That core is likely to be the popular route in cash games. I didn't mind DeAndre Hopkins on DraftKings, but not on FanDuel at $7,100. There are plenty of guys in the $6000-$7,000 range to target. Kelvin Benjamin and Martavis Bryant being a few others. Charles Clay popped up on my GPP radar this week, and at $4,600 isn't bad. I say that because Zach Ertz is a different play on DraftKings, being $3,500. That isn't the case here. Graham Gano and Los Angeles are top plays at their position this week.
