VEGAS TOOL: Week 1 DFS Flex Values Based on Sportsbook Player Props

alex bylineHere is a tool you can use in your Week 1 Main-Slate DFS research. We’ve aggregated all the open NFL player props available to us to identify how Vegas sees the fantasy production occurring this weekend.

By gathering the Las Vegas over/unders on receptions, rushing and receiving yards, we can compare the projected output to the DraftKings/FanDuel pricing as a tool in gaining an edge.

We can, of course, also use it as a tool in making decisions for our season-long leagues as well.


– This is not a comprehensive list of all players, but we do our best to find as many props as we can across dozens of different sports books. Players will be added into the spreadsheet as the bookmakers get them to us through Saturday evenings in-season and later in the week during the playoffs. Please check back leading into lineup lock if you don’t see a player you’re interested in listed on the sheet.

Due to the fact that we pull props from numerous sources both online and private, sometimes props between books and line-makers can differ, especially when getting them as early as we do. If we notice a major difference between two reputable books, we’ll update the sheet to use the average of the two props given, while accounting for juice.

– These are not RW official projections, but rather, an additional tool to aid our members in decision making.

– This is not the RosterWatch DFS Cheat Sheet. Cheat Sheets can be downloaded here once available.

– Players with no over/under receptions props available have been supplemented with implied associated stats based on season averages and/or recent trends.

– The “Bonus” column is indicative of the three-point bonus received on DraftKings for rushing or receiving for 100 yards. Players with organic production projected by the bookmakers at 89.5 yards (rushing or receiving – not combined) or over receive three points, 79.5-89.5 receive two points, 69.5-79.5 receive one point.

  1. Need to drop one to pick up a Kicker–Lat Murray, Waddle, M Calloway or T Lance.

    My roster is as follows:

    QB- Hurts, T Lance
    RB- J Rob, Javante Williams, Mostart, M Gordon, T Sermon, Lat Murray
    WR- Tyreek, DK Metcalf, Cee Dee, Waddle, M Calloway
    TE- Hooper

    What do you think?

    1. Prob Calloway if you think you need Murray. I’m not sure you do with those RBs. I don’t hate dropping Murray either.

  2. Would you guys drop and of the following players to stash Tony Jones Jr.
    M Carter, Callaway, Landry, I also have Gio, but he is locked..
    Thanks RW

    1. Don’t think so. Maybe Carter or Callaway if you don’t want to own two saints

  3. Just wanted to see when the line-up optimizer tool will be updated to match the Draft Kings and Fan Duel player values? I am a new Pro member and will try not to ask to many questions.

    Thanks Ken

    1. Lol thank Ken- it goes up every Friday as early as possible, but it’s usually a late afternoon or evening release. Thank you so much for your support! Best wishes this season!

  4. Just a quick question, when do you normally update the Line up Generator tool? So the dollar amount match the Draft Kings or Fan duel sights. I know you guys are busy, and I am a new Pro member, so I will try not to ask to many dumb questions.

    Team name (Turn over Twins)

    1. Yes- it all matches up! Go give it a spin!

  5. In a non PPR 16 team league is it safe to drop Carlos Hyde or Justin Jackson for Dyami Brown?

    1. I would not. Hyde and Jackson have value in that format. Hold them for now. Hyde is actually a sneaky start this wk if you are in a pinch at flex!

  6. Are we dropping javonte or Michael carter for ty’son?

    1. Maybe / probably Carter

  7. PPR: I have Miles Sanders as my Bellcow and really want to handcuff him prior to Sunday. I have the following WRs that I could drop to pick up Kenneth Gainwell: Mike Williams, Jarvis Landry, Elijah Moore, Mecole Hardman… My other WRs are Calvin Ridley and Stefon Diggs… My other RBs are Josh Jacobs, Darrell Henderson and Trey Sermon

  8. I might drop Landry is you really want him.

  9. Good morning. Can you rank these 3 ROS? Gio, Tevin Coleman, Lat Murray.


    1. Murray + Gio + Coleman

  10. Post By John Hunsberger

    How much fab would you put on lat Murray ? (Out of 100)

    1. Depending on your need at RB, I think he’s worth a decent bid. Maybe up to 16.

  11. Would you drop Reagor for any of the following? Ty Williams, D Parker, Marvin Jones, Ruggs, Agholor, Justin Jackson. 0.5 ppr

    I already have: K Allen, AJ Brown, Sutton, Chase, Fuller.
    RBs – CMC, Gibson, AJ Dillon, Pollard

    1. I think I’d grab Ty’Son Williams now. You are thin at RB, and you aren’t likely to start Reagor over those other WRs anytime soon.

      1. Agree with Mr. Ron Rich!

        1. Im sorry it Tyrell Williams… someone did just cut Michael Carter but Ill have to wait until waivers this week where I am 9th so I doubt Ill get him.

  12. 12 team ppr. I have 1 flex spot to fill
    Elijah Moore
    Mecole hardman
    Marquise brown
    Who would it be?

    1. answered in the other thread.

  13. Pound the Emmanual Sanders overs. I think he is still very talented and poised to enjoy the Josh Allen effect.

  14. Team name..flying squirrel stole your nuts. Ppr need 1 rb and 1 flex starting cmc, Diggs, already payed Lamb. Mixon, Mostert, Locket, Dionte Johnson,


    1. I’d go Mostert and Mixon, maybe Lockett if you have a hunch

  15. D.. Harris (NE), K. Hunt, J. Chase, M. Carter and C. Davis. Which is the best flex. 10 team, .5 PPR. RosterWatch fan for two years running!

    1. I like Harris, good luck!

  16. Need 2 .5ppr
    Team name: All I do is winston. 2-0
    Mattison, amari cooper, lamb.

  17. Who to go with in flex?
    Team name: Don’t you fournette about me. 0-2
    Mattison or Gordon.

    1. Full ppr

  18. TE spot. Don’t you fournette about me.
    Kmet or Engram?
