NFL Rundown Week 1




GB/CHI o46 (-115)

Bills +3 (-125)

Panthers +3 (-110)



Patrick Mahomes

  • With the highest game total on the slate at 52 points and Mahomes being the shot collar in the highest scoring offense in the league makes him an every week play.

  • With the Jag's hiring of John DeFilippo (formerly of the Vikings) they will move away from a stale offense and try to show off their shiny new toy in Nick Foles. If the 2018 Vikings a signal of things to come expect a much faster offense and either more points or more 3 and outs....both of which equate to more possessions for Mahomes to rack up the points.

Jameis Winston

  • With the third highest game total of 50 points Winston will have to sling the ball to keep the Buccaneers in the game.

  • In 2018 Fitzpatrick and Winston combined to be the QB2 in all of fantasy.

  • Winston will now have Bruce Arians at the helm, Arians is known to be one of the most fantasy friendly coaches.

  • The 49ers were 29th in DvP vs QB's last year.

Russell Willson

  • What I thought as a sneaky stack in Willson/Lockett/Carson seems to be becoming more and more popular.

  • Russell had the fewest passing attempts of his career by a large margin, with a new OC hopefully the Seahawks can get one of the most efficient QBs in the NFL back on track to fantasy stardom, and going up against the Bengals (who allowed the most fantasy points to QBs in 2018) seems like a good place to start.

  • Call me crazy but the Bengals just signed Gio to a nice extension so if you play the stack above be sure to bring it back to Gio who will rack up the receptions when the ginger is trying to not get killed by Clowney.

Josh Allen

  • The Jets being 27th in DvP against QB's last year paired with Allen's $5,600 price tag on DK and sub 5% ownership makes him a great GPP play for me.

  • Allen's rushing upside pared with his consistently low price makes him a great play most weeks, over the last 7 games of 2018 Allen averaged the most fantasy points of any QB.

Lamar Jackson

  • Looking back to Miami's last game of 2018 Josh Allen had 9 rushes for 95 yards and 2 TD's.

  • Miami is obviously in #TankForTua mode and the general consensus is that that Ravens should man handle the Dolphins, my only worry is that a competent Mark Ingram will vulture rushing TD's unlike Gus Bus or Kennith Dixon were able to do last year lol.

  • Lamar's lack of a clear #1 target makes him primarily a cash game play for me since we want some QB/WR or QB/TE correlation in our GPP lineups.

Matthew Stafford

  • While I mention that the Lions are archaic in their play calling later, they do know that they have a gunslinger QB in Stafford.

  • With the Cardinals playing up in pace and on their 3rd and 4th string CB's already (LOL) I imagine that Stafford has no problems carving up the Cardinals secondary.

  • With Stafford projected sub 5% ownership on Draftkings this makes a Stafford/Golladay/Johnson stack look very appealing for GPPs.

Cam Newton

  • I love Cam in GPP's with the Questionable tag next to his name driving down the ownership on a QB with rushing TD potential in the second highest game total on the slate.

Kyler Murray

  • The Rookies first sta
