Slate Notes:

Highest team totals (TT move): ARI 20.25 (+2.75), MIA 20 (+1.25), DEN 19.75 (+2.25), IND 19.50 (+2.75)

Lowest team totals (TT move): JAX 13.75 (-2), ATL 15.5 (-0.75), CAR 16.25 (-0), NE 16.25 (-3.50), NYG 16.25 (-0.75)

Bankroll allocation: We’ll have three main slates this week (Thursday, Friday, Saturday). For Thursday, use 6-8% of your bankroll with 50-75% of that allocation in low-risk contests (H2Hs, 50/50s, Double Ups). If you’re a low-risk player, that allocation should be close to 75%. Admittedly, we do like the high-risk options a bit more on Thursday, setting up for a good slate to play a handful of cheap, high-risk lineups. 

Low-risk lineup strategy: Three RBs. Always three RBs in NFL Preseason DFS. Even in high-risk. 

Joe Webb is our top QB play as he’s expected to play most of the game, he has experience, and he offers upside with his legs. We certainly understand if you want to use Tyler Bray instead, as Chicago has a higher team total. Baltimore is the safest DST option, as the opposing Jaguars have the lowest team total on the slate (and it’s already dropped 2 points since lines opened). As the case for all lineups, don’t forget to use the FLEX spot for players who play in the latest game in your lineup! 

High-risk lineup strategy: Still stick with 3 RBs. Because of playing time expectations and low game totals, there is no need to triple stack (3 players from one team) or game stack (multiple players from the same game) -- just stack a QB with one of his pass-catchers. The best positions to differentiate here are WR and TE, so use the high-risk plays at those positions (unless you’re stacking one of our low-risk plays with his QB). Note: if you’re playing in satellites/leagues where there isn’t a huge field (think less than 150 entrants), go with a “Cash+” lineup -- keep your core 4-5 low-risk players, then swap out the others for high-risk options. 

High-risk contest selection: The more high-risk allocation you have, the more lineups you should be making. Fortunately in preseason DFS, there is no salary cap, so it’s super easy to make multiple lineups. Primarily play 100-player leagues on FanDuel. For GPPs, still be sure that you’re max-entering whichever contests you enter (e.g. if it’s a 3-Max GPP, enter 3 lineups). P.S. There’s a freeroll on DraftKings. Do it. It’s free. 

Satellite targets

FanDuel: There are a ton of satellites available for both the Sunday Million (Week 1 main slate) and Thursday Million (Week 1 Thursday night single game), both of which have $1 million top prizes. There are a few satellites that award 100 tickets -- target those specifically. Have a small bankroll? They even have 5c and 10c satellites.

DraftKings: Four tournaments to targets via satellites: Sunday Millionaire, Thursday Millionaire, Play Action ($3 entry, $200K to 1st, great for ALL bankroll sizes), and the Week 3 Preseason Dress Rehearsal GPP ($15 entry fee). 

LAC/ARI Showdown recommendations: There are expected to be 7 QBs playing in this game, plus multiple RBs from each side. We love a high-risk approach here using any of the ARI/LAC WRs listed above (Byrd, Johnson, Scott, Davis, or other guys we highlight in the team notes below). In a game where no high-floor plays standout, both DSTs are priority options. The Chargers have two kickers on the roster, so rostering either is a low-floor/low-ceiling proposition. Zane Gonzalez, though, is the sole kicker for Arizona, making him a potential play. Note that Arizona currently has the highest implied team total of the evening (19.75).

Starting QB (then Flacco, now Lamar Jackson) played 2 series in PSW1 2018.
6th round rookie Trace McSorley was dual-threat QB at Penn State for 3 seasons as a starter. He’s the only backup to Jackson who has been on the roster long enough to master offense. Joe Callahan signed late last week.

Miles Boykin has been running with first team.
Marquise Brown limited in camp with an injury. Likely OUT.
A lot of Baltimore’s defensive backs have been impressed with UDFA Antoine Wesley. He’s flashed all camp, as has Jaleel Scott. Scott is the most improved Ravens WR from a year ago.

Eagles:

Unofficial depth chart here

WR: Julio Jones will not play.
Calvin Ridley not practicing, likely won’t play.
Russell Gage (16 snaps in HOF game) was in a non-contact jersey Monday.

James White and Sony Michel did not take part in walk-through Wednesday. If they do play on Thursday, it will be very brief.
Damien Harris and Nick Brossette should get a lot of work. Harris has been more impressive.
WR: Julian Edelman and Demaryius Thomas will not play.
UDFA Jakobi Meyers has the most WR catches in camp and is projected to make the team by a trusted reporter. Seems to understand how to get open in this offense, played with the 1st team in live 11-11 scrimmage against Lions. Brady had positive comments on the WR.
Braxton Berrios considered a slot WR and is returning punts. Expected to have large role.
N’Keal Harry is starting to show flashes after a slow start. Harry got hurt on Tuesday and did not take part in practice Wednesday. WILL PLAY
Gunner Olszewski could be a dark horse candidate to surpass Braxton Berrios at the slot.
Dontrelle Inman and Ryan Davis getting little reps, days could be numbered in New England.

Brandon Powell & Andy Jones are likely the top guys to see time with Fales.
Chris Lacy has been the top QB target in the red zone so far.
TommyLee Lewis was activated off PUP list Tuesday. Should be contending for a backup role.
TE: Jesse James will start. T.J. Hockenson played “a lot” in scrimmages, should carry over into preseason. Hockenson could be a real red-zone threat.
Fales has connected a few times with rookie Isaac Nauta.
Will probably see a lot of two TE sets from the Lions.

Webb will at least play the entire 2H, and most likely 3.5 quarters.
Jordan Ta’amu was signed Wednesday night, shouldn’t affect Webb’s playing time

Damarea Crockett continues to shine as a possible back-up RB option- even connecting out of the backfield with Webb.
Traded for RB Duke Johnson on gameday, but he’s not an option.

Danny Vitale keeps making plays, performing well during open RB battle. Has shown strong receiving talent. A “lock” for the roster. More of a FB.
Dexter Williams had some nice runs in practice.
Signed Keith Ford on Tuesday, but likely won’t play Thursday with no time to practice.
Corey Grant RELEASED.
WR: WR battle heating up, Jake Kumerow and Trevor Davis have been main standouts.

J’Mon Moore fighting for final WR spots with Darrius Shepherd and Teo Redding. Has not helped his case, quiet so far, seems to be a step behind.
Trevor Davis got injured Monday, will be reevaluated and will know more tomorrow. Did not practice Tuesday, most likely out.
Darrius Shepherd has been getting praise from both Rodgers and HC, should play a ton of snaps.

Brett Hundley will likely close out the 1st quarter after Murray exits.
UDFA Drew Anderson has surpassed Charles Kanoff as the QB3 and should see a ton of playing time in the preseason.
RB: Spotted occasionally using 2 RB sets with both DJ and Chase Edmonds.
T.J. Logan had a nice day at inter-squad scrimmage against first-team defense.
Six healthy RBs on roster. Even if DJ doesn’t play, likely split work.
