Every week the First Look article gives you a taste of the slate and some of the more intriguing salaries that DraftKings and FanDuel release. The goal is to identify early-week cash game considerations, as well as potential tournament plays before we piece together the stacking options. On Tuesdays, I share some of these insights on the Fantasy Footballers DFS Podcast if you want further commentary on some of the salary standouts.

Check back later in the week when Matthew Betz and I share our official DraftKings and FanDuel picks for cash and GPPs exclusively in the DFS Pass.

Here are the games for this week’s main slate* including team-implied totals (TIP) for each matchup.


For newcomers, the main slate for DFS includes the Sunday early (1:00 EST) and afternoon games (4:25 EST). At first glance, here are a couple of things to note:

  • Off the Main Slate: CAR, CHI, IND, NE, NYJ, LV, DEN, BUF
  • Bye Week Teams: KC, MIA, PHI, LAR
  • There is some serious star power removed from this slate when you see the four teams on bye.
  • The Giants/Cowboys game is a laugher with one of the lowest team implied totals I have seen since doing this full-time.

  • DET @ LAC profiles as the top game of the week with a number of juicy fantasy options. However, the best guys are cost-prohibitive so even correlating Amon-Ra St. Brown with Austin Ekeler or Keenan Allen is running into a salary issue and roster percentage.
  • All salaries are DraftKings unless noted for FanDuel (FD).


  • After a mostly dreadful Monday night where the Chargers defense stole the show, Justin Herbert ($7700, $8500-FD) is firmly on the GPP radar at home against the Lions. Not only does it sport the highest over/under of the week, but the Lions are one of the clearer pass funnels in the NFL. Teams are throwing on the Lions 65% of the time, 4th highest rate in the NFL.
