DraftKings Daily Fantasy Football Helper for Week 7
Week 7 rolls in with what Vegas projects to be some lopsided, definitive victories, as only one of this week's slate of games is projected to be within three points (Lions versus Vikings). Such scoring projects fantasy points across all positions, and we'll take a look at which studs and value plays there are for you to capitalize on this week.
Remember, as a rule of thumb in daily fantasy, you want your players to hit three times their value; that is to say for each $1,000 in salary, we want that player to achieve three fantasy points (If Cam Newton has a $7,000 salary, we want him to hit 21 fantasy points to be considered worthy of rostering).
Here, we'll also take a look at Guaranteed Prize Pool (GPP) players with the potential to surpass that threshold while being lower owned compared to the rest of the players at his position.
Of course, numberFire also offers a great tool for premium members, allowing you to build customizable lineups by inputting your players and seeing what our projections offer for the week. There's even an optimization function that'll use our algorithms to help fill out the rest of your daily lineup and give you the best chance of succeeding on game day.
Using Vegas spreads and totals, our Net Expected Points (NEP) metric, and some daily fantasy gamesmanship, let's take a look at which players you should target this weekend.
As a reminder, the Chicago Bears, Cincinnati Bengals, Denver Broncos, and Green Bay Packers will all be on their bye weeks.
