FanDuel Week 2 Slate Breakdown with Cash and GPP Picks
In this space each week, I’ll give my overall FanDuel cash game and tournament strategy thoughts and discuss how players fit into these strategies. By offering a general approach to the week, along with a player pool to consider, you should walk away feeling well-equipped no matter your bankroll strategy or game selection process. For those new to 4for4, we use a proprietary value metric to determine the best values across all positions, rather than the flawed raw point-per-dollar value you usually find across the industry. An extension of our value metric and projections is our GPP Leverage Score, a single value that drives our decisions on which players we can be most confident using in GPPs as it relates to their expected ownership in large-field tournaments.
Main Slate Cash Game Strategy
After lighting up the Dolphins for 33.6 FanDuel points in Week 1, Lamar Jackson ($8,200) tops the 4for4 value report at quarterback against another putrid secondary. Without their two starting cornerbacks, the Cardinals were a team to target in Week 1 and things went as expected, with Matthew Stafford scoring 27.6 FanDuel points, albeit with a full extra period of playing time. Priced as the QB3 on the week, Jackson is projected for just 0.2 fewer FD points than Patrick Mahomes ($9,000) but is $200 cheaper. Jackson didn’t need to run last week, but his legs always give him a comfortable projection floor.
