DraftKings NFL Pickem Week 2 Strategy
Using our new floor/ceiling projections, this season we will be able to simulate all of the DraftKings Pick ‘Em tiers. We’ll share the results of these simulations in a premium article for subscribers along with other ideas about attacking the Pick ‘Em slate each week.
This is my first year playing the PickEm games seriously, but Drewby outlined the reasons why you should be playing this format last season: https://dailyroto.com/nfl-dfs-strategy-draftkings-pickem/
I’ll probably have a healthy dose of Drew Brees (NO) and Ben Roethlisberger (PIT) in this tier. That approach will be in line with the market, but each player has close to a 50/50 chance of being a Top 2 player at the position and is very stackable with the other tiers.
Of course, the availability of Aaron Rodgers (GB) is going to impact this tier. If he’s out, there are more paths to Cam Newton (CAR) winning the position outright, and I’d be interested in him as a contrarian play you don’t have to stack. The floor/ceiling projections I’ve worked on over the offseason show that rushing ability adds positively to a QB’s ceiling, but not necessarily their floor: https://dailyroto.com/nfl-dfs-floor-and-ceiling-projections/
