2021 DraftKings Millionaire Maker Trends Through NFL Week 3

If you missed the 2020 Millionaire Maker Top 10 recap, you can catch up here, but since we are three weeks into the 2021 season it’s time to start looking at this year to see if there are any trends we can take advantage of.

Let’s jump right in and compare some differences from this year compared to what we have seen in the past two seasons.

I want to start off by stating we are seeing some differences in the NFL this season compared to last, many of which I alluded to in my 2020 recap article above. Here are two key differences between the 2020 season as a whole and the 2021 season through three weeks both in DFS and in the NFL.

— DraftKings salaries are much flatter than last season, spreading out ownership to a larger degree than previous seasons. There aren’t as many 20%+ owned players, and more 5-10% owned players due to this.

— Scoring is down 2 points per game from the 2020 all time high of 49.5 points per game. Generally we can expect scoring to decrease as the season moves on due to weather, injuries to key players, and teams facing opponents a second time in division.
