It’s time to take all the theory and strategy sessions we at the Fantasy Footballers DFS Podcast have shared over the summer… and actually do this thang! 

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. 

Check back on Thursday where Matthew Betz and myself share our official DraftKings and FanDuel picks for cash & GPPs exclusively in the DFS Pass.

  • Patrick Mahomes ($8,100) is going to be the QB1 most weeks and with the highest total (53) on the slate, it’s hard to argue against him. Just know stacking Mahomes with Travis Kelce or Tyreek Hill (both $8,200) is 32.6 percent of your budget. In other words, you need that stack to combine for at least 75+ points in a tournament to 5x.
