Thursday 21st Sep 2017

Welcome to the long-awaited Week 1 of the NFL season! Each Wednesday I'm going to share my top picks for DraftKings with some commentary. This is going to be a unique week since the salaries were set over a month ago and a lot has transpired since they were released. There are obvious bargains based on pre-season developments but keep in mind everyone knows them so you'll need to differentiate your team among the high-priced players.

Be sure to check out our DraftKings section as fellow staff members will be sharing their favorite plays for DraftKings contests throughout the week.

Here's my Week 1 top plays.

andrew luck full


Andrew Luck 8300 Second highest game total on the board
Drew Brees 8100 Highest projected game total on the board
Eli Manning 7500 Been so bad in pre-season that he will be overlooked
Derek Carr 7300 Highest projected game total on the board
Matthew Stafford 7200 Second highest game total on the board
Jimmy Garoppolo 6200 Should be able to dink and dunk into decent numbers
Dak Prescott 5000 The price is right to save money for other positions


lamar miller full


Lamar Miller 7000 Bears defense should not have much of a chance
Mark Ingram 6600 Save a few bucks off the top-tier.  Should be just as good
Rashad Jennings 5400 Expected to see a full workload against poor defense
Melvin Gordon 4600 Not a great match-up but cheap.  Coming of strong pre-season
Spencer Ware 4400 Underpriced if Charles is out
Theo Riddick 4000 Lions rushing game showed little in pre-season
DeAndre Washington 3700 Should see all the Raiders passes out of the backfield
James White 3600 Fits right into to the dink-and-dunk approach


julio jones full


Julio Jones 9400 Easy to construct a roster that fits two of the top WRs
Odell Beckham Jr. 9300 Suggest rostering two of the top-five WRs
DeAndre Hopkins 8800 Nice week one matchup
Dez Bryant 8500 Can he connect with Prescott for real?
A.J. Green 8400 Often overlooked among the elite WRs
Mike Evans 7400 Nice alternative to the very top tier
Jarvis Landry 6000 Tannehill wont have time to look deeper than Landry
Tyler Lockett 5000 Nice price for dynamic playmaker against bad secondary
Marvin Jones 4600 Might be the last time to use him at this price
Chris Hogan 3600 Nice price for week one use
Terrelle Pryor 3000 Worthy of GPP play with Gordon out
Tajae Sharpe 3000 Cheap starter.  Concerned about lack of overall targets


rob gronkowski full


Tight End    
Rob Gronkowski 7400 Tough to pay this price
Gary Barnidge 4700 Looked good with RGIII
Zach Ertz 4300 Finished 2015 on a roll
Dwayne Allen 3200 Can he excel with Fleener gone?
Jared Cook 2900 New start in pass-happy Green Bay

seattle seahawks D full


Seahawks  3900 Biggest favorite on the board
Eagles  3300 RGIII has been known to throw the ball to the wrong side
Texans  3200 Texans get to tee off on Jay Cutler.  J.J. Watt likely to play
Browns  2300 Cleveland gets the rookie QB
