Welcome to the Week 1 NFL DFS Weighted Consensus Rankings! That has a nice ring to it. For those who aren’t familiar with our Weighted Consensus Rankings read the next paragraph for a full introduction. For those who are back, thanks for joining us for another great NFL season. Note that expert’s “current” score is based on last year’s results but will transition to this year’s score after Week 1. In general, you will want to build a lineup with the highest ranked players for Cash games but drop down to grab a few of those players lower on the list for GPPs as they will likely carry lower ownership but are still strong plays this week. I’ll give away the QB section for free in Week 1 so everyone can see what a great compact overview of the entire DFS expert community looks like.

In this series, we will publish a consensus of NLF DFS expert’s recommendations that take into account each expert’s current DailyOverlay score to generate a Weighted Consensus ranking for each position. To calculate the Weighted Rank Score, each expert’s DailyOverlay score is weighted on a sliding scale from 1 to 5 with the top expert in the current standings being weighted with a five while the last place expert is weighted with a one. If you have ever wondered how to differentiate between two players who were both selected by the same number of experts, then this is the list you need. We also list the projected Ownership Percentages for Cash and GPP leagues (after a couple of weeks) to help you identify some players that could be good low-owned contrarian plays. We will include all players with a Rank Score of 10 or higher.
