Fave 5 Fantasy Picks for Week 1 on DraftKings

When you’re filling out your Fantasy Football lineup in Week 1 on DraftKings, I want you to think about using this handful of players in your lineup!

Geno Smith, QB, N.Y. Jets ($6,500): It sounds crazy, I know … But I have started to become a Smith fan over the offseason, as I think he’ll pick up plenty of points with his feet – and with a legitimate red-zone threat like Eric Decker, he’ll pick up some passing touchdowns too. Only the Vikings allowed more passing touchdowns last season.

Drew Brees, QB, Atlanta ($9,700): If you’d rather spend high on quarterback, which is usually a sound strategy, Brees has a great matchup against a team that he threw for 635 yards and four touchdowns against in two games last season.

Jonathan Dwyer, RB, Arizona ($3,000): With Andre Ellington (foot) a gametime decision, I like Dwyer on the cheap, because even if the second-year back plays, he can’t be effective.

DeMarco Murray, RB, Dallas ($6,800): He’s healthy and he’s facing a Niners defense that is a shell of its former self.

Ladarius Green, TE, San Diego ($3,200): Another Monday night starter possibly replacing an injured guy (Antonio Gates (hamstring)), Green will face the Cardinals, who allowed the most Fantasy points to tight ends all of last season.

Bonus Player to Avoid – Antonio Brown, WR, Pittsburgh ($7,500): You might be hearing how Brown has done pretty good against Browns CB Joe Haden in past seasons – don’t believe it.

Good luck in Week 1 on DraftKings!
