DraftKings has added their Week One Thursday Start NFL Week One Contests.
Why did it take so long? DraftKings has always offered preseason Fantasy Football and to avoid the confusion of the various start days of the NFL preseason schedule, DK has traditionally waited until the very end of the preseason schedule to post their complete week one NFL contest schedule.
The Thursday Night Kick off game features Carolina at Denver. This should be a tough defensive struggle and you should probably temper your enthusiasm for a high scoring contest.
Whatever you decide, do not load up on CAR and DEN skill players. You cannot win week one on one Thursday night game, you can however lose week one if it turns out to be a low scoring game.
Be selective and stick to one or two players only, you still have 13 other games to choose your line up from. (Complete Week One line up advice)
Players to watch on Thursday Night: C Newton CAR QB 7700, T Ginn CAR WR 4100, G Olsen CAR TE 5100, CAR DEF 3800, DEN DEF 3700.
