Rejoice #Footclan! Football is back! And with it, so returns the beautiful beast that is NFL DFS. Yes, I know it’s been a long offseason and rust has piled up that we must shake off. Let’s do just that by identifying some big-picture principles we’ll want to utilize as a foundation when rostering RBs in our DFS lineups.
Opportunity Is King
One foundational rule still reigns supreme no matter what specific format of fantasy football we’re playing: Opportunity = fantasy points. And in DFS, where we’re rostering players to go bonkers for us in one specific game, the importance of this rule is heightened to extreme levels. This is true for all players to varying degrees but no position benefits from volume more than Running Back.
