FanDuel Projected Ownership: Week 2 PREMIUM
One week is behind us and we are all itching to get more lineups in for a crack at $1,000,000 or even just a successful cash game lineup. Ownership rates can be useful for either type of slate, as in GPP contests, you will want some exposure to players with upside that are going overlooked, and in cash games, playing the chalk is often a wise investment. Today, I’ll discuss the five players we project to have the highest ownership at each position and a few other standouts for you.
There is no standout option at quarterback for the second straight week, leading to a widespread in terms of ownership. Alex Smith is likely to lead the pack, being owned in about one-eighth of lineups in a potential shootout versus the lackluster Colts’ secondary. Behind him will be a trio of other mid-priced quarterbacks: Patrick Mahomes and Ben Roethlisberger in a 52.5 over/under game then the always steady Philip Rivers at Buffalo. For lineups needing to save money, Tyrod Taylor will be a quality option versus the Saints’ defense that surrendered 48 points last week.
