Week 2 Thursday Night Single-Game DFS: Top FanDuel & DraftKings Plays
The football gods are giving us a second straight legitimate matchup on Thursday Night Football. Justin Herbert and the Los Angeles Chargers travel to the midwest to take on Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs.
It is vital to remember that single-game slates are not simply a “max salary, play as many big names as possible, and submit” format, especially in larger tournament fields. We need to identify players that can be pieces in their offense’s success, whether in the lead or trailing, as well as the players that could be focal points in a neutral game script. The ability to then take those players and identify which will succeed in the single-game format will put us in a better position to succeed as daily fantasy players.
It is not just about finishing in first place in Showdown, it is about finishing in solo first. This format is one of the easiest to chop the top prize because of the smaller player pool. Therefore, being different (and correct) in roster construction is the difference between doubling your entry cost and taking down a GPP. Let’s take a look at this week’s important notes and players I am focusing on when building for Showdown formats on DraftKings and Fanduel.
