FantasyPros Football Podcast: DFS Lineup Advice: Week 1

Sep 7, 2018

Keenan Allen should be the focal point of some of your DFS lineups this week

Welcome to the latest episode of the FantasyPros Football Podcast. The show is hosted by Bobby Sylvester (@bobbyfantasypro) and Mike Tagliere (@MikeTagliereNFL). Throughout the NFL season, we’ll be interviewing featured experts and team correspondents who will offer insight to help your squads.

Football is back! Doug Norrie from Daily Fantasy Sports Rankings is with us as we give our favorite cash game and GPP plays for Week 1. Before digging in, our crew takes some time to explain what DFS is (8:41) and how players should approach cash games and GPPs (9:21). How well can we expect James Conner to perform if Le’Veon Bell is absent on Sunday (14:39) and how much consideration should you give Leonard Fournette and Joe Mixon in cash games (26:44)? Are A.J. Green and Keenan Allen (42:18) two wideouts you should build your DFS lineups around, and is Andy Dalton (1:00:01) someone you can rely on in cash games this week?
