Dak Prescott Will Be Popular, and For Good Reason
Despite being touchdown underdogs, Prescott’s projected ownership and Captain ownership look to be nearly as high as Brady’s. This is not too surprising, as Prescott can affect the game as a rusher as well. Still, Brady looks like the safer option where affordable, facing a Dallas defense that ranked 27th in PFF’s team coverage grade.
The Safest Receiver Bets
At $5,600 on DraftKings, Antonio Brown comes in as the highest-value skill position player for either team and ranks second in that metric on FanDuel. CeeDee Lamb comes in as Awesemo’s top-value skill position play on FanDuel and is a strong MVP option in tournaments.
Running Back by Committee in Tampa?
If Leonard Fournette earns more playing time after his excellent performance during last year’s playoff run, then he is a great NFL DFS pick at $7,000 on DraftKings and $11,000 on FanDuel. However, the Awesemo projections show that Fournette is far from a sure thing. Ronald Jones is projected for nearly identical production but comes in at significantly lower salary on both FanDuel and DraftKings.
