Top NFL DFS Experts – Week 1
A wild first week is in the books with Stokastic – Upside leading the way followed closely by DFSArmy – Domination Station and Rotowire. The DailyOverlay – Cash Consensus started strong and there were plenty of low-owned hits by a variety of DFS sites.
On to the Week 1 grades, class is in session!
Head of the Class – Week 1
Each week I will highlight a few of the top experts for the week. Here are the experts who deserve a “gold star” for Week 1 based on their cumulative grades for all players they touted this week.
#1) Stokastic – Upside (Score: 5.00) provided an “A+” and two other picks of “C” or better with their three selections
#2) DFSArmy – Domination Station (Score: 4.67) the top optimizer of the week delivered five picks graded with an “A” or better
#3) Rotowire (Score: 4.40) saw four of their five recommendations receive a grade of “B” or better
