Top NFL DFS Experts – Week 14
Week 14 of NFL DFS expert grading saw Rotoballer take the top spot, followed by DailyFantasySportsRankings and GoingFor2. There were also a bunch of off-the-radar plays that fared well and were only recommended by a couple of analysts. Be sure to check out the Extra Credit section to find out which experts were on these hidden gems.
Also, we have a new leader on the Overall Leaderboard with DailyFantasyInsider taking the lead with their must-have plays of the week. There are still three weeks for the DFS analysts and optimizers to make their move up the leaderboard.
