Fanduel Week 1 NFL DFS Top Picks for Sunday – Monday

Week 1 NFL DFS Top Picks

Hey there, fellow DFS lover…  I’ll be here each and every day leading up to kick-off to give you additional insight into building your FanDuel lineups. This week, we’re diving into Week 1 NFL DFS Top Picks! Are you ready?

My goal isn’t to build your lineup for you, it’s to be a guide by using my experience as a sports bettor and by using the membership tools available at Team Rise or Fall. With that being said… let’s look at this week’s favorites.

We recently added Individual Sport memberships to our offerings here at Rise or Fall. If you would like to subscribe for an NFL Monthly or NFL Weekly without access to any of the other sports you now have that option. 

All memberships come with Discord Access, however, only the *Monthly All Access* for $39.99 comes with the $20 monthly credit to Fantasy Cruncher.

Week 1 NFL DFS Top Picks

Who’s projected to make the most fantasy points this week? 

Patrick Mahomes

At $8.7 on FanDuel, Mahomes is projected to bring the most fantasy points in our Week 1 NFL DFS Top Picks. Do I think that will happen? I’m not sure. The Cardinals do have two key defensive players out with injuries (Watt and Golden). That leaves them a bit weaker, however, KC isn’t the same team as it was last year. This will be an interesting match-up for sure. 

Got deep pockets?

Jonathan Taylor 

JT comes with a hefty price tag of $10.2 this week And I’m not sure that I’m on board. With the amount of production he has, an average of 15.7 fantasy points per game is a tough pill to swallow considering there are other less expensive options available. That and having a new QB situation make him one of the riskier Week 1 NFL DFS Top Picks, but it would certainly pay if he goes off. 

Looking for consistency?

Mark Andrews

If it’s consistency you’re looking for in your Week 1 NFL DFS Top Picks, and you have the budget available, look no further than Mark Andrews. The TE consistently has the ball and provides high-value fantasy points (averaging 19.4). Both Mark Andrews and Jonathan Taylor will be highly rostered, so perhaps you only go with one stud. That’s probably all you could squeeze out of your budget anyway.
