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 the tournament plays for all formats and will cover core players 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:
It is not that all tournament players cannot be used in cash games. If a player here works out for your team structure in cash games surrounding your primary core, use them.
These are just the players that come with some element of inherent risk but are the primary players that I still want to be ahead of the field on compared to the percentage of rosters they are projected to make this weekend.
Our Week 1 tournament players lifted the low tides provided by my core players to salvage the opening of the season.
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.
Justin Herbert ($7,000/$8,200)
The Chargers ran wild on the Dolphins, rushing for 238 yards. That is something that is surely not going to happen here against the Titans.
The Titans were once again dominant against the run in Week 1, but also once again struggled to defend the pass.
They allowed 9.2 yards per pass attempt (31st) to Derek Carr while allowing 0.430 passing points per attempt (21st).
Herbert threw for 313 yards in this matchup a year ago, but he failed to throw a touchdown and tossed a pair of interceptions. I am betting on the touchdowns swinging back in his favor while the Chargers are going to have to throw the football against this defense.
