DraftKings Week One Monday Night players to target

Set a great DraftKings NFL Line-up on Monday Night.

The NFL has scheduled 2 Monday night games (like they always do) to kick off the 2016 regular season and that will allow for Monday Night only Fantasy Football on Draftkings. As soon as the Monday night contests are posted on DK, I’ll highlight them right here.

The Featured Monday Night Contest on Draftkings is the $600,000 NFL Monday Night Doubleheader. At only $3 to enter it features a firstplace prize of $50,000 and pays out over 59000 winners.


Here’s a early look at those games and who you should consider using in your line ups on Monday, September 12th

Week One Monday Night Lines: 

7:10 PM ET PIT -3 at WAS (50) and 10:20 PM ET LA -2.5 at SF (44.5)

This years Monday night Kick-off has 2 interesting games to watch. The PIT at WAS game is projected to be high scoring with plenty of action. You want to have a big part of it.

Both teams had trouble stopping opposing offenses last year and will still have problems. Both of those offenses, especially PIT can put up points quickly. Stacking Roethliberger and Brown would be ideal, but is an expensive proposition, like almost 40% of your cap space. I like the Cousins/Reed stack with A Brown as my number one WR.

R Kelly WAS RB 4300 could be starting in place of M Jones WAS RB (shoulder), if he is, he is a must start value play for Monday night.

LA at SF puts 2 offenses against each other that last year were pretty disappointing. T Gurley is the best RB on the Monday Night schedule and should be worked into your line up some how, some way.

V McDonald SF TE looks like an interesting Value Play, he and B Gabbert SF QB have seemed to develop a connection with each other at the end of last season and during the preseason this year.

I really like the following players on these Monday games:

QB: B Roethlisberger PIT 7800, K Cousins WAS 7400, B Gabbert SF 5400

RB: D Williams PIT 7000, T Gurley LA 7800, R Kelly WAS 4300

WR: A Brown PIT 9800, M Wheaton PIT 5400, P Garcon WAS 4400, D Jackson WAS 6100, S Coates PIT 3700

TE: J Reed WAS 6600, V McDonald SF 3100

DST: Start  LA 3800 or SF 3100. As the lowest scoring game tonight, these Defenses should accumulate points.

QB/WR Stacks: Roelisberger/A Brown PIT 17600, K Cousins/J Reed WAS 14000, Gabbert/McDonald SF 8500

The limited schedule on Monday night will allow a great deal of Salary Cap flexibility and offer many chances to set up multiple lineups to increase your chances of winning on the Monday Night Double.

DraftKings Adds Thursday Start Week One Contests

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.

DraftKings Week One NFL Line Up advice

Week One DraftKings Line Up Suggestions and Stacking advice.

Welcome to Week One on DraftKings….

Updated: September 7, 2016

Now that the NFL preseason is coming to an end, it’s time to start your in-depth line up research and begin setting those week one line ups. Here are the Always Rules that I use to help me in my line up decision making process.

Week One in the NFL is usually one of the hardest weeks to handicap for fantasy purposes, no one really knows how good any real team will be (offensively or defensively), no one knows the exact plans or strategies the coaching staffs will use and it will take us fantasy players a couple of weeks of regular season game action to actually know what is what, who is who and until then, it’s just a guessing game.

Vegas has set some very high scoring overs for week one, they seem to think scoring will be up in 2016, so I am looking at some very high scores for us fantasy guys this week.

A few thoughts about the Week One match-ups:

I’m looking at the Colts taking some liberties with the Lion defense this week, so Andrew Luck combined with his talented receiving corps should put up big points.

In this game I’m also thinking that M Jones Jr. DET WR will continue to stand out as M Staffords deep guy (without Megatron this year), he has so far in camp and he has been turning heads around the league.

I really like the Stacks of B Bortles/ A Robinson JAX and Cousins/Reed WAS (Monday Night) to continue their excellent play as shown last year.

It looks like J Charles KC RB will not play in week one, this makes S Ware KC RB 4400 a must start in your line ups.

Dak Prescott DAL QB 5000 has been named starter to replace T Romo DAL QB who is expected to miss 6 to 10 weeks. Prescott has been outstanding in preseason and seems very comfortable leading the Cowboys. Although he is untested, he could easily put up 18 to 20 fantasy points this week and would be an extremely valuable play until his price increases in weeks 2 and 3.

C Ivory JAX RB should find plenty of running room for the Jaguars this year, courtesy of the deep threats of JAX WR’s Robinson and Hurns.

OAK at NO could also provide some fireworks on both sides, I think the younger Raider offense can put up some big points against the weaker Saints Defense this week.

You should also consider using L Blount NE RB, He will be “the guy” with D Lewis NE RB out in week one and beyond? No one really knows if J Garoppolo NE QB will be up to the task while he starts during Tom Bradys 4 game suspension. You would think there would be more touches for Blount, but who really knows what Coach Belichick is thinking. Blount has a great history of Goal Line touches and scores, this could be his opportunity to really shine. Also, without Tom Brady, I’d lower my expectations for any NE receivers, including Gronk until further notice.

As soon as the Monday night contests are posted on DraftKings, lean on Big Ben, Antonio Brown and D Williams as stack options. K Cousins WAS QB and J Reed WAS TE also make a nice QB/TE stack on Monday night.

New York State is back On-Line for Daily Fantasy……

NEW YORK is now open for Daily Fantasy…..

The NY State Gaming commission has approved and gave the go ahead for DraftKings and Fan Duel to start accepting Fantasy Players from NY State.

Each site had to show exactly what contests they would be offering, show compliance for customer fund safety and how they would monitor where players are located when they are playing on the site.

In total, the 4 Big Players: DraftKings, Fan Duel, Fantasy Draft and Yahoo have been awarded Temporary Daily Fantasy Operating Permits and all expect the formal licensing process to be completed without issue.

That Means all New Yorker’s can reload, research and get ready for the 2016 NFL Fantasy Season which will be starting in just a couple of weeks.

Quote from NYSGC:

The Commission has completed a legally required thorough review of the temporary permit applications from these five companies, ensuring required consumer protections, player safeguards and advertising restrictions are in place.

“As the newly enacted law requires, the Commission regulates all aspects of interactive fantasy sports, including ensuring the operators put important consumer protections in place,” said Commission Executive Director Robert Williams. “While the Commission continues work on formal regulations for these games, these temporary permits get companies up and running in New York State while assuring resident players that safeguards are in place.”

Comments from DraftKings CEO Jason Roberts:

“MLB pennant races are heating up, an exciting NFL season is just around the corner and we are thrilled to be able to bring DraftKings back to millions of New York sports fans. We thank the New York State Gaming Commission for being thorough and expedient in approving the return of fantasy sports to New York.  We are proud to be a leading sports-tech and entertainment company that delivers an unparalleled fantasy sports experience, with state of the art technology and a mission to bring fans closer to the sports they love than they ever thought possible. New Yorkers can play our games right now, and on behalf of everyone at our company, thank you New York and welcome back to DraftKings!”

Ironically, there were rumors of Fan Duel adding a season long product later this August for the upcoming 2016 NFL Fantasy season. Could DraftKings have beat Fan Duel to the punch?
