NFL DFS Preseason Primer: Picks, Projected Ownership, and Strategy for Thursday

Our analysts break down the main slate in detail, setting you up for success in your daily fantasy football contests throughout NFL Preseason.

Thoughts on Week 1

This isn’t going to be a long and detailed analysis on the week, but rather a message on what I am seeing on the GPP contests. The field is significantly better at playing preseason DFS, and ownership is highly condensed. There is a careful balance to be had when playing tournaments between rostering high fantasy point expectations and finding leverage against a field of opponents gravitating towards the same ideas.

You’ll want to be identifying not just your favorite raw projection plays for tonight’s slate, but also the pivot options you can place in 3 to 6 spots of your lineup. These differentiation plays will put you in a better position to ascend large field leaderboards.
