Welcome to my Weekly DFS Cheat Sheet. If you love The Primer, my weekly fantasy football novella, you’ll thoroughly enjoy this cliff notes addition. For my in-depth thoughts on the players listed here, see the Primer for my full breakdowns, but if you’re a DFS degen like myself rifling through numerous lineups only minutes before lock, you’ll love this listicle of players I want to target for each game.

For site-specific plays, showdown captains, and more, let’s chat in the Fantasy Pros DFS Discord. Tag me with your DFS questions weekly. Let’s stack some cash this week.
