NFL DFS FanDuel GPP Picks Week 7 (Fantasy Football)
Building winning GPP lineups, by definition, is tough. There are, however, some key things to look for when filling out your roster. First and foremost is ceiling; we want the players with potential to score the most points. Next is leverage; we want the players that fall through the cracks. Finally, we have to build a lineup that tells a winning story through game script and stacking.
For a deeper dive into GPP strategy, make sure to check out the Tournament Strategy episode that Borg and Betz put out over the offseason, and make sure to stay locked into the DFS and Betting Podcast.
A final note before diving into the picks. Don’t ignore Borg’s Cash Picks article. It pairs perfectly with my GPP picks article, as it’s typically a good idea to mix in some value plays, especially if they fit the GPP-winning story you write.
Justin Herbert @ KC – $8,300
Patrick Mahomes looks to be more popular, so give me Herbert. He has nearly the same ceiling as Mahomes at a $900 discount and a significantly lower roster percentage according to our optimizer. He’s coming off his worst game of the season against Dallas but is poised to bounce back in the best game environment on the slate, which sports a 4.5 Game Pace Score (GPS), as highlighted in Borg’s Pace of Play article. Rostering Herbert also opens the door to multiple stacking and bring-back options as leverage on Mahomes stacks.
