Every Sunday in the weekly fantasy chats, I get asked about my favorite plays of the week or who is my player pool that weekend for DFS.

This article series covers exactly that.

I will go through the players I am targeting as core plays for all formats and will cover tournament plays and games to target for stacks in other posts.

The idea is that this will paint a clearer picture of framing lineups.

Week 2 DFS Content:

Our core players are the players that we will have the most exposure to in their positions. They can be played in cash games and tournaments.

Week 1 was a major letdown where my core players let down and my tournament players picked up the slack. That will typically be reversed more weeks than not, so we are going to get back this weekend.

I will have some analysis on the player selections and game writeups, but check out the Week 2 Worksheet for a fully detailed breakdown of the players and games.


Josh Allen ($7,900 DraftKings/$9,200 FanDuel)

This is as good of a bounce-back spot as you could look for.

Allen is at home and a massive home favorite. The Bills have the highest team total of the weekend.

Since his rookie season, Allen has averaged 23.8 fantasy points per game as a home favorite of a touchdown or more.

The matchup is also good.

After allowing 0.450 passing points per attempt in 2022 (28th), the Raiders allowed 0.444 passing points per attempt in Week 1 (25th).

The Raiders allowed a league-high 51.2 yards per drive after allowing 34.6 yards per drive in 2022 (29th).
