Here are the 5 most asked questions I have received the past week via E-mail and by Google search inquiries.
These are the most commonly asked questions about DraftKings.
What is OPRK on DraftKings?
OPRK is the strength rating of that individual players opponent that week...
If it is Green, then that player is up against a weaker opponent (against that position) and should have a good or higher scoring game fantasy point wise.
If it is Black, then it is a neutral match up and you can expect a normal point (not great, not bad) scoring game against that opponent. A match-up like this could go either way, very good or very bad, but not out of the players usual fantasy scoring average.
If it is RED, beware….. The opponent is very good against that position and a bad/low scoring game by that player is very possible. Do not expect an outstanding scoring game…….
Like all things Fantasy, any individual player could always exceed expectations (good or bad) or completely disappoint your expectations on any match-up. Nothing is a sure thing on Fantasy Football.
Higher Green numbers of OPRK (21 to 32) are the best to play against, lower Red numbers of OPRK are the worst to play against (1 to 10) and the middle Black numbers like 10 to 20 are about average to play against.
On the DraftKings 2016 NFL Week One QB list,
Aaron Rodgers is up against the 29th ranked (worst) Defense (JAX) against QB’S last year and is projected as a really good starter in Week One.
Eli Manning is against the 5th (best) ranked Defense (DAL) against QB’S last year and probably should be avoided in week one.
Russell Wilson is up against the 17th (Average) ranked defense (MIA) and has a neutral match-up, could be good, could be bad, but you could expect his average fantasy numbers in Week One.
