DFS Minute: NFL Week 2

This is your DFS Minute for week 2 in the NFL. Here are my lineups for Draftkings and Fanduel for the Sunday slate of games.


Anyone that plays Daily Fantasy Sports wants their share of the pie. May you find this week’s lineups to be helpful in putting some cash in your pockets. Last week I wrote the first DFS minute of the season. It was a good week for Jalen Hurts, Deebo Samuel, and Dalvin Cook. Courtland Sutton, James Robinson, and Michael Pittman Jr were big misses.

Quarterbacks

Justin Herbert, Draftkings/Fanduel- $6,500/$7,800
Joe Burrow, Draftkings/Fanduel- $5,800/$7,500

Justin Herbert is up against a Cowboys defense nursing injuries. Tom Brady threw for 379 yards and four touchdowns on the Cowboys last week. Look for Justin Herbert to have a solid week through the air.

Running Backs

Jonathan Taylor, Draftkings/Fanduel $7,200/$7,200
Chase Edmonds, Draftkings/Fanduel $4,900/$6,000

Chase Edmonds comes at an incredible value this week. The Arizona Cardinals running back faces a Vikings defense that surrendered 150 totals yards and two touchdowns to Joe Mixon in week 1. Edmonds totaled over 100 yards in week 1 against the Titans.

Wide Receivers

Adam Thielen, Draftkings/Fanduel $7,100/$7,600
Cooper Kupp, Draftkings/Fanduel $6,000/$6,200
Darnell Mooney, Draftkings/Fanduel $4,200/$5,500
Amari Cooper (Flex) Dratkings/Fanduel $6,800/$7,800

Adam Thielen again showed why he is one of the greatest values in all fantasy sports last week. Kirk Cousins found Thielen in the endzone twice and Thielen finished the game with nine catches and 92 yards. Do not be surprised to see the Vikings trailing the Cardinals early this week, which means a lot of air time for Thielen. 

It was evident early that Matthew Stafford favored Cooper Kupp in his first regular-season game with the Los Angeles Rams. Kupp finished the game with 108 yards and a touchdown. Kupp’s opponent this week, the Indianapolis Colts gave up several big plays to the Seahawks. It is realistic for Kupp to have a repeat performance in week 2. 

Amari Cooper fills out my flex position this week. It was clear Dak Prescott favored Cooper and used him as a safety net when it mattered. Cooper is likely an every-week play this year.

Tight End/D/ST

Gerald Everett, Draftkings/Fanduel $3,600/$5,000
George Kittle, Fanduel $6,700 
Patriots D/St, Draftkings/Fanduel $3,700/$5,000

Gerald Everett could turn into a red zone favorite for Russell Wilson this season. He found the endzone last week in his first game with the Seattle Seahawks. The New England Patriots travel to play the New York Jets and you can guarantee Bill Belichek will be pressuring Zach Wilson all game long.

Values and Honorable Mentions

David Montgomery, Draftkings/Fanduel $6,100/$7,300
Tee Higgins, Draftkings/Fanduel $5,400/$6,000
Zach Pascal, Draftkings/Fanduel $4,400/$5,100
Van Jefferson, Draftkings/Fanduel $3,500/$4,900 

I would not fault you for adding any of the above-mentioned players to your lineup this week. They all hold incredible value. You will see in my Fanduel lineup below I replaced Gerald Everett with George Kittle because Fanduel has a larger budget than Draftkings.
