Raybon's Review: What We Learned From Week 7 DFS on FanDuel & DraftKings
Analyzing the prior week's results is one of the most valuable investments of your time as a DFS player. In this space, I will deconstruct the winning lineups from FanDuel and DraftKings' biggest GPPs. I will also list general DFS takeaways from the past week.
Week 7 Winning Millionaire Maker Lineup
The chalk hit in a major way in Week 7. By my count, last week’s combined ownership of 196.5% (21.8% per slot) was the highest ownership of a winning lineup since the start of 2015 (23 weeks). It was the first time four players were owned 35% or more over that span as well.
The key for Week 7 Millionaire Maker winner Jtortona was Jay Ajayi at 4.1% ownership. Ajayi crushed it to the tune of 214 rushing yards, firmly entrenching himself as the feature back going forward and thus prompting Arian Foster to call it a career a day later. Ajayi became just the fourth player in NFL history to rush for 200 yards in consecutive games. More on him later.
