NFL Preseason DFS: Week 1 - Slate 2022 Preview + Core/Captain Plays

Updated: Aug 13, 2022

Highlighting the top picks for the Preseason NFL DFS Week 1. Going over the top Showdown and DFS picks as well as highlighting some bets!



I will be updating each slate as they come, and as the research comes. So this should be treated more as a thread that gets updated for each slate


To really dial in who the top plays are for Preseason NFL DFS we have to look at two things, the first is going to be the king, and the second has led to some easier low-owned plays.

  1. Simply who is going to get the most playing time on the field. Whether it is a QB playing a full half-scoring throwing two INTs, and only scoring 5 DK points that is still enough to help you cash. RBs and WRs playing a lot are king.

  2. What are the coaches' tendencies for each game. This will tell you somewhat of what the coaches' philosophies are for preseason games, and they tend to just use this to get a look at players.


We will start with number two, and look at the coaching tendencies for previous game 1s.


 

Saturday Afternoon Slate:

Due to the number of games associated with this slate we will go game by game highlighting the top picks from each position rather than breaking down some picks that could work out. (Bigger slate = more options)


Chiefs: They will be playing their starters a lot makes it tough to know which ones to be on. With not many injuries they are a tough team to nail down playing time.


Quarterback:

Skylar Thompson (MIA) Core Play:

It is expected that Tua is going to sit which would mean that we get a lot of Skylar Thompson, an possibly a full half of Teddy Bridgewater. Both are great plays if that ends up being true. But the one thing we do know is that Thompson is expected to get a lot of snaps in this game and most likely a majority of the QB snaps. He is someone that with that work load we have to play.


Ian Book (NO) QB Core Play:

Book is one of my favorite plays on this slate. Book should get a majority of the snaps with Winston Day-Day and Dalton being a veteran QB. I expect this to be a lot like the Patriots split at QB where Hoyer got around 4 series then it is the young QBs turn. Now Book is not that good but he can scramble. His feet make him and even more appealing play.


Running back:

Kenneth Walker III (SEA) High Exposure:

Walker is a Rookie RB that everyone in Seattle is excited about because he can potentially become a workhorse RB. He is expected to start this preseason game with Penny sitting which makes me like him slightly less actually. This could lead to him getting less playing time than I would have wanted. Homer and Dallas could also be worth a look as they are battling for the RB3 spot on the roster.


Jaylen Warren, and Anthony McFarland (PIT) Mid Exposure:

Warren is a small quick twitch type RB, which the Steelers do not really have so there is a chance the Undrafted Rookie could find himself making the roster. He has already made several of big players in camp so the hype is there. Tomlin has been someone to run rookie RBs a lot more than vets in the preseason so this could be a good spot for Warren. Harris will at most play a quarter, Benny Snell is out which leaves Warren, McFarland, Durant, and Teague for RBs. All 4 should get enough reps, but McFarland is the only other RB that has been getting a decent amount of hype out of camp.


Tony Jones JR (NO) Low Exposure / Stack:

I like Jones Jr more in stacks with Ian Book as he is someone that can catch passes out of the backfield. But he is someone that has struggled in the NFL thus far. He has apparently had a good camp and needs to have a good preseason.


Dameon Pierce (HOU) Low Exposure:

This offense is loaded with quality 2nd string RB vets. Which means the Texans should give Pierce enough looks today to see what they have him in. It would not be shocking to see a few of the vets sit as well.


Malik Davis and Aaron Shampklin (DAL) Core Plays :

Davis is to me the best RB option on this slate, as he should be in for the most amount of playing time. Zeke is going to sit and Rico Dwodle, and Ryan Nall are injured. That currently leaves Tony Pollard, and Anthony Shampklin. Davis is a big play quick twitch guy and makes the most sense workload-wise. Shamklin I know nothing about, and there's barely any news on him. He also had covid around 10 days ago. Tough to gauge him as a player.


Jake Funk (LAR) High Exposure :

This is 100% of a "Kristian Wilkerson" type play where there's not much news out there on Funk saying that he is going to play a lot or anything like that. But Funk is someone who I could see even being the Rams RB1 eventually this season. I really like his film, he just seems like the full package.


Wide Receiver

Dareke Young (SEA) - High Exposure:

Young is comparable to DK Metcalf in terms of raw athleticism, which is probably why they decided to grab him this offseason. He comes from a small college but his film really stood out, clearly better than the competition he was playing against. Apparently that has translated to a good camp as well. I am excited to see what he can do. He also benefits from Lockett and Metcalf most likely not playing that much, and with Swain, Eskridge, and Goodwin all being a little bit banged up as well. The chance to make a name for himself is there tonight.


George Pickens (PIT) Core Play:

The Steelers have used young WRs a lot in preseason, and it seems like that is part of the point, they want to see what they have in them. Pickens would be that guy this week, and I think he will have a solid day. He is someone I think makes for a great lineup filler. Calvin Austin is another rookie WR that could get some PT. But the Steelers have too many of the same guys like Austin that it makes him individually someone I want to target.


Lynn Bowden Jr, Braylon Sanders, and Erik Ezukanma (MIA) Stack with QB:

Bowden is a lot like Isabella as a play last night where he is someone that wants to be traded, and either way it benefits the team and Bowden to play well in this game. Bowden needs to provide himself either way and he needs to continue to impress in camp. Both rookies Sanders, and Ezukanma have been having great camps which is why players like Bowden and Preston Williams are not locks today as it could end up being the Sanders and Ezukanma show. Either way getting a piece of these WRs is the way to go when playing Thompson at QB


Kirk Merritt and Chris Olave (NO) Stacks:

Merritt is a WR that can get open, and if you haven't figured out I love to target those WRs in preseason DFS as they typically create a nice safe floor. He has been getting a lot of hype out of camp as well. The rookie WR Chris Olave will get a chance to finally show out and I am excited to see what he can do. He should get a decent amount of PT as well.


Johnny Johnson and Jalen Camp (HOU) Stacks:

One of the strangest stacks is going Driskel (TE) then going Johnson and Camp at WR. Then doing another team stack elsewhere possible with Books or Thompson. Both are players getting a lot of hype out of camp, and thus I like them a decent amount with this stack.


Simi Fehoko (DAL) - Low Exposure:

Fehoko was someone I thought would be a solid preseason DFS play last year, but that didn't really happen. This was because I liked his film, well apparently he is putting together a great camp this year, and that makes me want to use him again this year and hope for better results.


Others I like: Tutu Atwell, and Ben Skowronek, and Joe Reed (LAC)


Tight Ends

Lucas Krull (NO) Stack:

Krull is a TE for the Saints that has had a good camp. Good TE plays are always hard to find, and that is true for this slate Krull could get lucky.


Jeff Driskel (HOU) CORE PLAY LOCK:

Driskel is a player that you should just hit the lock on, I do not really care what his ownership will be. He is listed as a TE on this slate but is going to play QB with Kyle Allen OUT today. That leaves current starter Davis Millis as the only other QB. Driskel has been an alright preseason QB in the past, and he has the speed to produce.


Saturday Morning Slate:

Due to the number of games associated with this slate we will go game by game highlighting the top picks from each position rather than breaking down some picks that could work out. (Bigger slate = more options)


Chiefs: They will be playing their starters a lot makes it tough to know which ones to be on. With not many injuries they are a tough team to nail down playing time.


Quarterback:

Trevor Siemian and Nathan the Goat Peterman (Bears) - Mid Exposure:

Fields is expected to play around 10 - 20 snaps, which to me means until that #1 offense puts together a good drive then they will be out. That leave Siemian most likely closing out the first half and probably getting the 1st series of the 2nd. After that we get preseason DFS Goat Nathan Peterman in there. Peterman has always been a QB that looks good against backups, to the point where in his rookie year he was named the starter for a few games. Soon it was discovered that his arm strength was not their to compete against NFL starters. Still Peterman consistently puts up DK points against backups and I think he'll do that again today.


Taylor Heinicke (WAS) Core Play:

Wentz is going to play around 10-20 snaps as well just like Fields it will come down to how soon the offense puts together a good drive. We got word that Heinicke will play into the 3rd which most likely just means a drive or two. Still that should be enough to hit value going against a bunch of backsup. I think that he will score a TD an as a result I think he makes for a great play. Sam Howell will get around 1 quarter in a half.


Case Keenum and Matt Barkley (BUF):

Keenum and Barkley are my favorite QBs on this slate simply because we know that they are going to play the most. Josh Allen is sitting which means both QBs should get a full half. Keenum should be able to score a TD, and Barkley should as well although Barkley will probably throw and INT or two. Playing time is king and thats what this play is based off of.


Running back:

Isiah Pacheco and Derick Gore (Chiefs) - Mid Exposure:

Showdown wise you will probably be forced to play Pacheco, and probably Gore as well both are not only playing for a roster spot but maybe even significant playing time. Now Pacheco has probably been getting the most hype out of any rookie RB thus far this preseason, but is he really that good or is he Darwin Thompson all over again, we will see. Gore was the Chiefs best runner last year, but can he display good film in the passing game. Both have a good chance to score. Rojo has been getting reps like he will be the 3rd string RB in this game, if that is true that could be huge as well.


Trestan Ebner (Bears) High Exposure:

DM is not playing today which means Herbert will get the start, after that it is a bit of a guessing game for playing time. Darryton Evans is a player that I also like and will have some of in Showdown slates, but Ebner seems like the RB they want to get some film on. He is a verstile RB that should get some catches in the passing game.


Robinson Jr and Jaret Patterson (WAS) High Exposure:

If you're using Heinicke at QB I actually like stacking Patterson with him because Patterson is a great pass-catch RB. I could see those two connecting for a lot of yards and possibly a TD. Robinson Jr is someone that they want to use in short-yardage situations, this leads me to believe that he has a chance to score a TD today.


Ty'Son Williams (COLTS) - Low Exposure:

Williams has been a player that I have liked on film when he was with the Ravens. With JT sitting, that means Hines will start, and Philip Lindsay will fill in from there. That leaves Williams most likely getting the 3rd quarter all to himself. Just a matter of if that is enough for him to produce.


James Cook (BUF) - Low Exposure:

I expect that we will get some targets to Cook today to see what he can do in the passing game. That should mean that his floor is a bit higher. With Zach Moss and Devin Singletary being quality NFL RBs it makes sense for the Bills to get a look at Cook today.


Wide Receiver

Justin Watson (Chiefs) - High Exposure:

Watson has long been a player that is good enough to do well in preseason games, he just might not have what it takes to dominate against starters 100% of the time. Watson is putting together another good camp, and makes me want to target him once again this week.


Tajae Sharpe, Isaiah Coulter, Dante Pettis (Bears) - Stack with a Bears QB:

I have ranked those WRS in order of importance. Sharpe, and Coulter have been getting hype out of Bears camp which is not saying much as a lot of the Bears "good" WRs have been injured. That means that their should be a lot of playing time to go around. Another Bears WR that could do something today is Dezz Newsome but I think I like these three the most. Sharpe is a proving good enough WR, Coulter is looking to take the next step, and Pettis was productive last year for the Giants, and really has always been good when he takes the field. The problem with Pettis is that apparently he sucks in practice.


Jahan Dotson (WAS) - High Exposure:

Personally I like Dotson best with some Heinicke Stacks, but he could be used alone. Not much news is coming out of Commanders camp about anyone other than Dotson he has apparently been dominating in camp. Really for Rookie WRs in fantasy football its either Doubs or Dotson as the top dog at this point. Dotson looks to cement himself as being the top rookie WR today.


Isaiah Hodgins and Jake Kumerow (BUF) Stack with QB:

One of my favorite stacks on this slate is using these two WRs with one of the QBs. Hodgins has had a great camp, and Kumerow getting PT against backups should be money guy is a stud against backups.


Others I like: Brandon Zylstra (good enough WR going against backups). Keke Coutee (Needs a good camp)


Tight Ends

Jake Tonges and Chase Allen (Bears) Core Plays:

The Bears are going to have 3 TEs sit in this one which means that the Rookie TEs Allen, and Tonges should get some work in this game. Both have been getting a lot of reps with QB Nathan Peterman so it makes more sense to use them in stacks with him but both should get around a half of football. This should lead to them not getting a fat 0 today.


Tommy Tremble + Jared Scott (Panthers) Core Play:

The Panthers seem like they will only have 3 healthy TEs, Tremble, rookie Jared Scott, and Stephen Sullivan. Tremble is the one that does need to step up the most in my eyes. The Panthers need him to produce at that position this year. Sullivan apparently has been away from the team as well which really just leaves Tremble and Scott.


Drew Ogletree (Colts) - High Exposure:

Ogletree is someone I am excited to watch today for season long, and best ball purposes. he has been getting a lot of hype out of camp, probably the most out of any Colts player. He has a chance to back up that hype today. He would make for a great SD low exposure play.


 

Friday Slate:

Due to the number of games associated with this slate we will go game by game highlighting the top picks from each position rather than breaking down some picks that could work out. (Bigger slate = more options)


Quarterback:

Jordan Love (Green Bay Packers) - Core Play:

It has already been reported that Aaron Rodgers will sit preseason game 1 and game 2. The Packers are currently only rostering 3 QBs (Rodgers, Lover, and Danny Etling). It is clear that Etling will be a practice squad QB for the Packers if he proves himself worthwhile, and he will most likely get the second half of a play. He is someone that can score points with his legs. He is not a bad play, but Love is the one I want the most of. Love has looked good throughout his NFL career seemingly looking better each time we see him. Reports are coming out of camp that he looks even better this year. Last year Love did well enough for us in the preseason and he should do even better this year.


Trace McSorely (Ravens) - Core Play:

McSorely is going to get the start in this game which means that Colt McCoy and Kyler Murray are not going to be active in this one. This leaves Trace, and Jarrett Guarantano who should mostly be a known factor in this one. Who is someone they brought in for camp. But both should get about a quarter of play. McSorely we have at least seen be productive in multiple preseason games with the Ravens.


Brandon Allen (Bengals) - Core Play:

Taylor already came out and said that Allen would start and play the whole first half at QB. He has always been a solid preseason QB, and backup as a whole. I think he has a great chance to score a TD on Friday. The biggest problem with him is that he is the only Bengals player that is really a stand-out play to me. This will make it hard to know who to be on.


Running back:

BJ Baylor and Tyler Goodson (Green Bay Packers) - High Exposure:

AJ Dillion and Aaron Jones are not really expected to play, Patrick Taylor is a little bit banged up which led the team to bring in former GB RB Dexter Williams. We know that Williams is not that good so he should be a none factor. That leaves us with two rookie RBs that I am excited to see. BJ Baylor is more of an "Aaron Jones" type back whereas Tyler Goodson is more of a "AJ Dillion" type back. Both are players that if they get around 8 opportunities in this game should be able to hit and exceed the value, and at the very least they should not hurt you. Both will be players I target on Friday's slate.


Trey Sermon (Niners) - High Exposure:

It has been reported that Sermon is expected to get a lot of run in this game. Which if true would be huge obviously, he was someone that most expected would be the lead back eventually in SF last year. Those people didn't realize that Mitchell was a stud, anyways Sermon getting a lot of touches on offense would be intriguing and something worth rostering.


Kennedy Brooks and Jason Huntley (Eagles) - Core Players:

Before signing an RB this morning (Thursday) the eagles only had 5 RBs on the roster. 2 of them are injured, and Miles Sanders is the starter so who shouldn't play too much. That leaves us with Brooks and Huntley getting a lot of snaps and a lot of rushes. Both are firmly in play. I think Huntley is the better player but Brooks should be locked in to more playing time.


Wide Receiver

Romeo Doubs, Juwan Winfree, and Samori (Green Bay Packers) - High Exposure:

Winfree was a preseason stud for us last year, and it seems like he will be again this year. he is a WR that might not be good enough to play against the starters in the league but he has proven that he can beat the backups in the league. He is someone you should be able to play with faith that he will be productive. Romeo Doubs is a rookie WR that most of you have probably seen the hype on already. He has been a standout in not only the Packers camp but really for all rookie WRs in this training camp thus far. We will finally get to see him in action on Friday to see if the hype is real or not, by all reports he should be able to make a big play. Samori is another rookie WR that I really like for the Packers, I expect him to get open early and often, he should be the one WR that plays the most as well out of these 3.


Greg Dortch and Andy Isabella (Cardinals) - Stack with McSorely Lineups:

Three of the Cardinals WRs are listed as injured or out (Brown, Wesley, and Hopkins). They also have AJ Green who is a veteran and does not need to play that much. With Dortch getting a lot of hype and is someone that is expected to start he makes a lot of sense to stack with McSorely. Isabella on the other hand needs to make an inpact this preseason to show that he needs to get on the field more or to show other teams that they should trade for him.


Britain Covey (Eagles) - MId Exposure:

Covey is a short quick WR that has gotten a lot of hype out of Eagles Camp. The Eagles have 4 WRs questionable so I do not really expect them to play too much. AJ Brown and Zach Pascal are proven, vets. Quez Watkins will probably play a little but he was a starter for the Eagles, and then we just get a lot of former good preseason DFS plays with Lance Leninor and Deon Cain. There is a path to Covey having a good game.


Tight Ends

Tanner Hudson and Troy Fumagali (Niners):

Really these two plays come down to the fact that Kittle shouldn't play much if at all, because Tanner Hudson is basially the best preseason DFS TE ever when he was with the Bucs, and for Fumagali he is a former Badger that has been battling injuries. He is more of a pass-catching TE. IN a crowded TE room he needs to stand out.


Chris Pierce Jr (Cards) - Stack With McSorely:

Chris Pierce JR was a college WR, that the Cards are trying to convert to TE. This should void well for catching some passes this preseason. Pierce will also benefit from the top 3 TE for the Cards most likely sitting out. Stephen Anderson is a solid pass catching TE, but he shouldn't play too much which only leaves Pierce, a blocking TE, and the other TE is an international player that they brought in. Chances are he won't play too much.

 

Thursday Slate:

Brian Daboll - New York Giants:

With the Giants, we do not get much information on coaching tendencies. Daboll has bounced around a lot, and it will be hard to determine what concepts have stuck in terms of playing time for players in preseason games. The Bills were somewhat one of the more difficult teams to predict usage for as well, this could lead to us just not being on NYG players as much on this slate. Reports are saying that starters will play a little but not too much.


Bill Belichick - Patriots:

The Patriots have been great for Preseason DFS for the most part. They rarely play their starters, and they commit to a couple of stud backups. The theme each year is to target which RB the Pats are going to run into the ground in the preseason and well play them into the ground. The amount of rushing attempts also leads to the Pats D typically being on of the better ones to choose from.


John Harbaugh - Ravens:

The Ravens are basically a better version of what I wrote up about the Patriots. Both teams rank top 5 in preseason rushing attempts over the past 4 years as well as bottom 5 in points allowed. We can see both go hand in hand. The QBs for the Ravens have been nice in the past but the WRs have been tough to nail down.


Mike Vrabel - Titans:

The biggest problem with the Titans is that their backup QBs have typically been terrible, which I believe is the true reason they drafted a rookie QB, and if that rookie QB can develop into a starting QB that would be great for them. The Titans did have the leading individual rusher last year with Sargent getting 49 carries. That is something that we will need to monitor for Thursday.


Takeaways:

  • Easy to fit in 3 "stud" RBs for this slate.

  • Tough to nail down which D we should be on. Pats or Bal should be the best options

  • Ravens and Titans running the ball a lot should mean the under hits. The Ravens are a great preseason team and I feel comfortable betting them to win.


Giants Players to Watch:

QB

We have not gotten any reports on the QB situation or really any position spots which for some reason is typical with New York media. The biggest news that we have gotten is that Jones has stayed in his norm which is being bad. A report came out saying he threw 4 INTS in one scrimmage this week. Not good, but this could lead to the Giants needing to get him live reps. With that I am not sure if they will need to get Tyrod Taylor reps, he is a proven VET at this point, the only thing that would lead to him getting the same amount of playing time as Jones is if these two are truly in a QB competition which some (bad) reports have suggested could happen. The third QB is Davis Webb I do expect him to get a majority of the 2nd half snaps.


RB

At RB it would not really make sense for Saquan to play too much, Matt Breida is also dealing with an injury so the top two RBs for the Giants should not get much if any reps at all on Thursday. That leaves us with Antonio Williams who last reported having to leave practice with an injury, it seems like he is fine now but something to monitor, Gary Brightwell is there who somewhat impressed in last year's camp and is currently listed as the RB3. Then some practice squad-type RBs with Jashaun Corbin being a player that a lot of people are excited to see on the field. Corbin is an UDFA out of Florida State who had some good production in college, he has the size, and speed to play at this level, if anyone were to score it could be him. Sandro Platzgummer was an international player who did have a big run in last year's preseason but probably won't play much.


The two I would target as a result would be Gary Brightwell, and Jashaun Corbin.


WR

The Giants have way too many WRs, and with the starters not expected to play much, and only David Sills being ruled out this is a tough spot to nail down. The only two WRs for the Giants I really am interested in are Wan'Dale Robinson, and Collin Johnson. Robinson the rookie WR is listed as a starter though which makes things more difficult. Collin Johnson is a guy that always seems to have a good camp. Really the rest of the WRs are all good enough to win against practice squad CBs in the second half but we just do not know playing time yet.


TE

Daniel Bellinger is a rookie TE that has been getting type, and he might just be the one great play from the Giants tomorrow. RSJ is already going to sit, and Andre Miller is dealing with an injury. That leaves vet TE Jordan Akins, a blocking TE, and fellow rookie TE Austin Allen. Allen was the 2021 All Big Ten TE last year so he could make a splash as well. If we struggle to find a TE elsewhere we will look to the Giants.


Patriots Players to Watch:

QB

Last year Mac Jones got a decent amount of reps in the preseason beating out Cam Newton for the starting position, this year we all know that position is his. He is not expected to play in this one, which might lead to Brian Hoyer getting a half, which has happened a decent amount, and rookie QB Brian Zappe almost for sure getting a full half. The question is will Hoyer play enough to hit value, because if he does get a full half against backups he should score a TD. Zappe is the "safe" play though.


RB

I do think that we will see a decent amount of both Damien Harris, Rhamodre Stevenson, and JJ Taylor Thursday night maybe around 5 touches each. After that we will get rookie RBs

Pierre Strong Jr. and Kevin Harris both of which had productive college careers, both having at least a season with 1,000 rushing yards and over 10+ rushing TDs. Also both of them look to be in the practice squad RB that we can run into the ground during the preseason. I like Pierre Strong Jr. The most, and his filmed popped but I expect both of these players to have a good game.



WR

Ty Montgomery has been one of the standouts in camp, which really just might mean that the Patriots end up moving on from James White as Montgomery has been playing a lot of RB for the Pats. I do not really expect any of the "starters" to get many targets. This leads me to want to be on last years preseason stud Kristian Wilkerson who is in line for his same roll again this year. He is a backup behind Jakobi Meyers, he does a lot of things well that Jakobi Meyers also does well. If he ends up with 4 catches for 40 yards that would not shock me. The one player on the Patriots that has been getting so much hype that I think we have to play them is rookie WR Tyquan Thornton out of Baylor. He is basically a Denzel Mims 2.0. He is a speedy WR that could easily catch a deep pass for a TD. I like the idea of stacking Wilkerson and Thornton with Zappe and Pats D.


Titans Players to Watch:

QB

Last year Ryan Tannehill did not play in preseason week 2, it was Logan Woodside, and Matt Barkley throwing for a total of 24 times which is simply not enough to rely on a QB. The interesting part is just how much rookie QB Malik Willis will play I would assume that they would try to play him a minimum of a half. This would be what we are monitoring.


RB

Julius Chestnut has been a rookie RB that has been getting some hype out of camp and if last years usage of Sargent was any sign of how they will use an RB that could mean that they are going to go the future practice squad player route again. that would mean Chestnut would be the RB to target. Hassan Haskins is the rookie RB that everyone is excited to see, and I am as well I think both of these rookie RBs make the most sense in terms of playing time, and I think one of them has a good decent chance to score a TD.


WR

At WR the one player I am extremely excited about is rookie WR Kyle Phillips who has been getting maybe the most hype out of any rookie WR in the league, and possibly rookie. He is a tough-to-cover WR which means that he should be able to get open for some easy receptions and some easy points in DFS. The other rookie WR for the Titans worth watching is Treylon Burks who has reportedly been struggling in camp. Maybe that just means he is a gamer. I bet the Titans will want to get a good look at Burks on Thursday Night.


Ravens Players to Watch:

QB

We already have news that any experienced starter is not going to play in this game. That means Lamar is out, which cool, but we still have 3 other good enough QBs. Tyler Huntley was solid last both in the regular season and in the preseason and was a stud. I want to be able to play him again but I am not seeing that as the way to go. Brett Hundley is also there who is a great backup and a seasoned vet. If he gets some PT in this one he could score a TD. Anthony Brown is a QB I know nothing about. Mostly this just feels like a stay away for now.


RB

The Ravens RB position has been a sweet spot in Preseason DFS ever since I started covering Preseason DFS 5 years ago. They want to get that clock running and get out of there. Last year we saw a lot of Nate McCary getting the 2nd most carries of any other RB in the preseason at 42 total, and Tyson Williams had 24 total which was a high total as well. This week we have 3 RBs that are going to be inactive, then 2 veteran RBs in Corey Clement and Mike Davis that shouldn't see much work which leaves us with Justice Hill, Nate McCary, and Tyler Badie. I think that all 3 of them will get around 6 carries. With Badie being the one most likely to get more than that. He also has been the one getting the most hype out of camp.


WR

At WR with how much the Ravens run the ball I have found it best to fade them. If anyone looks like a good play before lineup lock I will make that clear.


Josh Oliver is a decent TE play.
