NFL DFS Picks - Best Plays By Position
Below are our preferred plays for different contest types and roster spots. Plays are listed in order of preference.
Low-Risk: Contests where roughly half the field doubles their entry fee (e.g. H2Hs, Double Ups, etc.)
Small-Field High-Risk: Contests with exponential payouts and/or where a smaller portion of the field gets paid with less than 500 entrants (e.g. Multipliers, Leagues, smaller GPPs)
Large-Field High-Risk: Contests with exponential payouts and/or where a smaller portion of the field gets paid with more than 500 entrants (e.g. Multipliers, Leagues, smaller GPPs)
Slate Breakdown Video
Low-Risk: Jalen Hurts, Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen
High-Risk: Joe Burrow, Daniel Jones, Dak Prescott, Brock Purdy, Trevor Lawrence
In low-risk contests, we’re always going to favor dual threat QBs, particularly when they are in high total games or when they’re large favorites (Jalen Hurts meets both criteria this week). In high-risk, we like stacking offenses with more passing upside than their peers.
