PRO VEGAS TOOL: Week 5 NFL DFS Flex Values Based on Vegas Player Props

alex bylineHere is a tool you can use in your Week 5 DFS research. We’ve aggregated all the open NFL player props available to us to identify how Vegas sees the fantasy production occurring in this opening weekend of action.

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.

    Start Cooks vs SEA or Sanders vs NYJ? And trade Lindsay for Baldwin or Jeffery? I have Barkley, Gordon, Nixon, Michel but weaker at WR.

    1 pt PPR

    WR: Need 2
    M. Sanu, J. Crowder, Sterling Shepard, Marvin Jones

    RB: Need 1
    M. Ingram, Kerryon Johnson

  3. Help! Need a 2 for one trade to open up a roster spot for a kicker. Roster: Mahomes/Wentz; D.Henry, Barkley, T. Coleman, A. Jones, M. Breida, Schuster,D. Hopkins, T.Boyd,C.Davis,K.Stills, A.Calloway. Advice on trade to strengthen roster? Is Henry droppable vs Calloway or Stills?
