A closer look at week one salaries on Draftkings

DraftKings Week One Line-up Thoughts

I went thru all the position salaries listed on Draftkings for the Week One fantasy football contests and have listed by position the top salaries. If you take this information, you’ll have a decent idea of who you could start to build a week one line-up around.

It is still way to early (as of this writing) to lock your first DraftKing line-up, however you’ll have an idea of what you’ll want to start with and how much you’ll have left to fill the open positions.

There are a lot of things that can change in the next month of NFL camps, stay tuned in and pay attention to every bit of NFL training camp/preseason game news/opinion you can find.

The player salary listing on Draftkings includes player stats and recent news and notes (click player name), current weeks opponent, OPRK (opponents ranking against that position, green good match-up, white average match-up, red bad match-up) and FPPG (avg. fantasy points scored per game).

Top QB Salaries

WK One QB top salaries

Aaron Rodgers is the #1 salary/ranked QB, however you have to take into account he is not going against the same mismanaged Bear Defense from last year.

Honestly you cannot think of him as the #1 option just yet.

Drew Brees showed kinks in his armor last year and he has lost too many of his best targets.

I personally am thinking that Russell Wilson SEA just may be the safest option to start the year.

Top RB Salaries

WK One Top RB salaries

Adrian Peterson MIN is rested, happy and on a Viking Team that is on the verge of success in 2015, He would be my choice as the RB to start building around in week one.

LeSean McCoy is also interesting pick, he could be hell bent on proving the Eagles as fools.

Matt Forte CHI is now on a John Fox coached team, that means more RB by committee and probably less time, less production for  Forte.

Top WR Salaries

WK One top WR salaries

I’m looking at Calvin Johnson and Emmanuel Sanders as a pair of WR that should start off the year with a bang.

Calvin Johnson is coming off a injury plagued year and wanting to re-establish himself as Megatron once again (the DET defense will not be as good in 2015 and the Lions will need to score points in bunches to compete in the NFC).

E. Sanders is the obvious #2 option in Denver with huge up-side, as #1 Demaryius Thomas will no doubt, attract more attention from opposing defenses.

R Cobb GB and J Nelson GB are usually very reliable options, but the unknown CHI defense in week one could be problematic.

Odell Beckham Jr. had a great 1st year, however he still needs to continue his early dominance and adapt to how defenses handle him  in 2015.

Top TE Salaries

WK One Top TE salaries

I love Jimmy Graham on SEA……

He gives Russell Wilson a quality receiver with 1000 yd /15 TD potential. I think Jimmy Graham is a can’t miss TE this year, start him early and often.

Top DST Salaries

WK One DST salaries

Seattle has kept their defense intact and should maintain their dominance. Houston is another DST to watch, if Clowney is back and healthy the Houston DST will be a force to contend with.

First Week One Line up Suggestion

Week One Line Up suggestion

This is just a first “trial” line-up, things can and probably will change before the Sept 13th Kick-off.

I stacked Wilson QB SEA/Graham TE SEA, went with my #1 WR as C Johnson DET and Seattle as my DST.

Carlos Hyde SF RB should be the #1 RB on the 49er’s. I also like J Rodgers CHI RB as a high upside, pass catching RB.

The balance of this line-up are very cap friendly rookie WR’s. Kevin White CHI, Amari Cooper OAK and DeVante Parker MIA. This could be considered taking a chance, all unproven and 2 with injury concerns.

Keep in mind that DK football scoring favors receivers PPR and it is always best to use high upside players on large tournament size fantasy football contests.

But it it still very early, the injuries noted seem to be minor and they each could prove to be sure things.

I will be writing more on DK week one value plays as we get closer to the opening week-end and will no doubt have more line-up(s) and ideas to share……
