FanDuel’s Week 1 Main Slate features a whopping 15 games. It is a tricky lineup of games because the six teams with the highest implied team totals (Nebraska, Alabama, Ohio State, Michigan, Georgia, Texas and Washington) are each favored by more than 20 points. Balancing the risk of blowouts limiting the playing time of the top stars versus the obvious upside of the talented players in great matchups may end up being the key to the slate.
We have some fairly obvious values under $5,000 at each position, which also adds to the intrigue and opens the door to a stars and scrubs type of lineup build. On the other hand, there is also a ton of value in the mid-priced range and we can build lineups with seven players each capable of posting huge fantasy totals.
This slate breakdown will go through the slate position-by-position. Each positional breakdown will start with a big-picture view of the options on the slate. We will then go in-depth on the top options, which are broken down into two categories. Players listed as “core play”s are those who you can play with high confidence in both cash games and tournaments. Players listed as “others worth considering” are viable as cost-saving options in your main lineup or high-upside options for tournaments
