FanDuel & DraftKings NFL DFS Week 2 GPP Breakdown

Sep 16, 2023
Week 2 GPP Breakdown

In this space each week will be the top stacks, contrarian plays, and strategies to attack GPPs on both FanDuel and DraftKings. The backbone of our player pool is value, as highlighted by 4for4’s proprietary value metric, which goes beyond simple point-per-dollar projections. To be successful in GPPs, however, it’s essential to be unique and that can be accomplished by combining knowledge from 4for4’s suite of DFS tools including ownership projections, leverage scores, correlation, and stack values.

Even with all of these resources at our disposal, adjusting for game type is essential. For example, someone playing the Millionaire Maker shouldn’t have the same approach as someone entering a $300 single-entry contest with 150 entries. For nuanced explanations on game selection and lineup construction, be sure to check out 4for4’s DFS Strategy Hub and DFS MVP game theory segments.

Note: Many of 4for4’s value plays should be in your GPP player pool but may not necessarily be written about below. Most starters on teams with high implied totals are worthy of being rostered but players in this breakdown are those to be overweight on.

Week 2 Overview

Whereas last week's slate entailed jamming Tyreek Hill and Justin Jefferson into lineups while simultaneously avoiding cheap landmines (Marvin Mims, anyone?) in order to finish in the green, the elite players available this Sunday are sparse. And that median player pool, not to mention figuring out what is actually sticky from Week 1, has created a chaotic slate with risk at every corner.

Fortunately, risk is our friend in tournaments.

Popular Games to Target

Chiefs @ Jaguars (-3.5); O/U 51.5

When Patrick Mahomes ($9,000 FanDuel/$8,300 DraftKings) is on the main slate, people take notice. But his ceiling—the highest among all quarterbacks in this slate—is expected to go overlooked for Josh Allen's simply because the field has no idea how to stack the Chiefs, who defeated the Jaguars by 10 and seven points in their two matchups last year.
