Niche Site (Yahoo!, FantasyAces, DraftDay) Week 2 Breakdown
Below is a breakdown of general strategy on Yahoo!, DraftDay, and FantasyAces. These niche sites offer DFS players the opportunity to "shop around" for the best pricing on a player they may want exposure to in a particular week. Players who offer value because their price is vastly different from the Big 2 sites will be pointed out below.
We have Cam Newton ($36) projected to score four more points than any other QB coming off a nine-day rest as a home favorite with a team total of 29. His $/point value is approaching .70, while only three of the other 15 QBs priced $30 or more even clear .60.
The Giants purchased an improved run defense in free agency, and Ezekiel Elliott ($25) banged into it 20 times for only 51 yards. He should have more Luck against a Redskins run defense coming off a short week that just allowed 173 total yards and 2 TDs to DeAngelo Williams. Jeremy Langford led all NFL RBs in percentage of snaps played (96%), yet is priced as the RB24 as a home favorite.
