NFL DFS Picks and Analysis - Week 2: The Grind Down

Welcome to the RotoGrinders NFL Grind Down, a fantasy football advice article for DraftKings, FanDuel, and Yahoo. This DFS breakdown is an all-encompassing preview of the week ahead in the NFL from a daily fantasy sports perspective. We’ll provide all the projections, projected ownership, picks, targets, and analysis you need to set your lineups for this week’s contests.

Every game will be broken down with a DFS-first mentality. Betting lines are shown with projected team totals, spreads, and moneyline to give you an idea of the game environment. Each contest is then analyzed team-by-team, with a focus on finding matchups to exploit and trends to follow. At the end of each section, we’ll deliver a DFS cheat sheet of stacks to build, players to target, and low projected ownership plays that can make an impact on your weekly success.

NFL DFS Analysis

I can only hope all of the premium members here at RotoGrinders had a better Week 1 than yours truly. At the very least, I’m not sure it was possible to have a worse Week 1 than I did. I bricked the main slates on both FanDuel and DraftKings, I went 3-10 in my betting picks, and my Jaguars got trounced by the Texans. I point this out to show you that everyone has bad weeks when it comes to the NFL. If you got off to a rocky start, know that you are not alone. We will look to bounce back with a strong Week 2 and that starts with a Thursday night battle between the Football Team and the Giants.
