Top NFL DFS Experts – Week 7
Week 7 turned out to be a chalky week in DFS with a lot of high scores. DailyFantayCafe provided the top plays for the week, followed by Rotoballer and RotoGrinders – Lineup Builder.
The Overall Leaderboard stayed mostly the same with FantasyAlarm and RotoGrinders – Consensus leading the way with the RotoGrinders – Lineup Builder finding its way into the Top 3 for the year.
Plenty of weeks and grading for the NFL analysts and optimizers to work their way up the leaderboard.
On to the Week 7 grades, class is in session!
