FD Building Blocks Introduction

Get access to this and all our DFS content here!

Get our building-block players. Each week we do a ton of research so you don’t have to. We take into account projected game scripts, player projections, expected ownership levels, recency bias, and much more to make sure you’ve got the players you need to build a good lineup foundation.

Foundation: These are players we feel have a high floor and a high ceiling, meaning there is a chance they do really well with little risk that they are a complete bust. These players are great in cash lineups and tournaments.

Tournament Winners: These are players who can be the foundation of your tournament lineups. Some are popular players with really strong match-ups, others are high-variance players who have a high ceiling and are expected to be low-owned. These players won’t always hit, but are needed to differentiate yourself from the field in large tournaments.

Million $ Players: These players are even more high variance and best suited for massive tournaments with thousands of entries. These are the low-owned difference makers you need to take a shot at winning the million $ tournaments.

Hail Mary: These are players who generally aren’t expected to do well, but we see a potential path for them surprising at minimum ownership levels.

Fading: These are players we expect to be heavily owned by the public, but we aren’t playing them.

Favorite Stacks: In tournaments, it’s generally best to pair correlated players. For example, pairing a QB and WR. If one does well, there is a good chance the other will do well too. (You’ll sometimes see players listed in a stack that aren’t in our core picks… in those cases, we like those players better as part of team stacks or game stacks, rather than individually.)

Current week picks are typically posted on Saturday afternoon. Occasionally we will make some updates Sunday morning as new information comes out. Player recommendations table needs to be viewed on the computer; not mobile optimized.
