FanDuel NFL: Week 1 DFS Breakdown

Value Gems for Your Fantasy Lineup

In this section, we're diving into the treasure chest of potential fantasy value, uncovering players who offer significant bang for your buck. In the world of DFS, getting solid returns on a player's salary is the name of the game, and these picks could be your golden tickets.

J.K. Dobbins BAL vs. HOU ($6,500)

Dobbins has been a topic of intrigue after an uneven 2022 season. However, he finished strong, amassing 397 yards and a touchdown in his last four games. Despite a brief training camp hiccup, Dobbins seems to be in good health. His strength lies in goal-line work and his potential as a pass-catcher. The Ravens' offensive line is a powerhouse, and with Desmond Ridder at quarterback, expect a run-heavy game plan.

Jayden Reed GB at CHI ($5,000)

Rookie Jayden Reed steps into the spotlight as Green Bay's pass-catching corps deals with injuries. Reed, who is likely to see significant playing time, could be a steal at this price. He's up against Kyler Gordon, a cornerback who had his struggles as a rookie. Reed's potential shines in this promising matchup.
