5 Players Whose FanDuel Salaries Are Way Too Low

Month-old salaries led to underpriced players in Week 1. But which cheap guys should you target and use?

One of the least discussed strategies in daily fantasy sports is rostering players whose salaries have changed significantly since the previous week. While a large majority of the focus for DFS players is on projecting player performance, we can gain an advantage by thinking about salary change as an important piece of the puzzle.

Despite the perception that comes with a drop in salary, these players actually perform well beyond their expectations. Over the past four seasons, any player whose salary has dropped $500 or more on FanDuel from the previous week is 37 percent more likely to reach tournament value (three times the player's salary in fantasy points).

Just for Week 1, let’s take a look at the five players whose salary would be much different if prices were released this week and not a month ago.
