The projections page also provides underlying data including expected targets, Vegas lines, usage rates and much more.
NFL DFS Ownership Projections (Premium) (posted on Wednesday mornings and updated throughout the week): As the competition becomes increasingly sophisticated, knowing who the under-discussed plays of the week are is nearly as important as knowing who the highly projected players are. Ownership projections provide insight to each player’s projected popularity. Looking across voluminous data from slates of all sizes, our model provides the most accurate ownership projections in the industry. With that data, you get the competitive edge to pivot away from over-owned players to the less popular plays that take down GPPs on DraftKings and FanDuel.

Perfect for hand-building fantasy football lineups or comparing to your own projections to test for accuracy, these grades are also featured in our Lineup Builder.
Awesemo’s Premium Breakdown (Premium) (updated throughout the week): Alex Awesemo Baker’s weekly NFL stats-based article highlighting his favorite plays and stacks, relative to ownership. Success in NFL DFS is knowing how likely a stack is to be the highest scoring and how popular it is. That way you know whether a stack is going over or under owned relative to their odds of success.
