Editor’s Note: We may not list all the players we consider to be the best game. Be sure to consult the table at the bottom of the page. This page will be updated once Sunday morning if necessary.
DFS optimizer? We do not have a facilitator, but we do have a promotional agreement with FantasyLabs. With this add-on, you get access to their optimizer and it comes pre-loaded with both ETR forecasts and Adam Levitan’s proprietary estimates. Click here For details.
You don’t need to play money games to understand why understanding them is important. The players we look at in cash are the ones we believe have the lowest value, the best floor/ceiling combination, and a relatively narrow range of output.
In other words, these are the best plays on the board after factoring in price, computational context, and positional depth. Those seem like pretty good options for GPPs as well.
The best GPP lineup mixes some of these currency-type plays into a lineup of high-variance options. In cash games (where approximately 50% of the field is paid), we don’t worry about ownership, game stacks or affiliation. In large field tournaments, our ACO (Average Cumulative Ownership) should be reasonably low. Please read This column Listen to episode 237 Podcast For more on big field tournament strategy.

With all that said, these are our top picks considering the following factors: median projection, matchup, upside and value. Ownership is not considered here. In general, these players are what we call “head to head and 50/50 estimation”.
They are listed in descending order of value (It is not registered in “best game”.). Below, you’ll find suggested rankings per site after payroll.
Lamar Jackson ($7300 DK, $8500 FD) – Lamar’s got the Jets, and as much as we can be excited about their improved personnel, this is still a game against a top dual-threat QB against a team that overachieved last year. Lamar is a top play across all formats.
