Dollars Per Opportunity: Values Galore in Week 1

Opportunity, opportunity, opportunity — that’s what fantasy football is all about. Each week I aggregate projections from around the internet and find the best DFS values from a dollar-per-opportunity perspective. We’re back baby! [Insert 1-hour rain delay] Okay, now we’re back! [Insert 864 yellow flags] God I missed football! While the Thursday night opener wasn’t necessarily a value-add proposition in terms of minutes spent in our lifespan, I can assure you that there is plenty of value to be had this week in DFS. It’s Week 1, after all, and that’s the week in DFS where it’s impossible to only make 150 unique lineups that you absolutely love. Before we get to the plays for the week, a quick description on what to expect this season. Every week I’ll aggregate weekly projections and find the best values of the slate from a salary per opportunity perspective. I’ll try to suggest at least one cash game play and one tournament play for each position. Last year, my record on DraftKings was 89-75 — not too shabby, but definite room for improvement. As always, we’re looking for 3x value here. Let’s get to the plays!
