Week 2 DFS Cheat Sheets (DraftKings, FanDuel) and HyperDFS Lineup Generator Now Available

The epic DFS Cheat Sheets for FanDuel and DraftKings are now LIVE and available for download to RosterWatch PRO members.

PRO members, click here to head over to the downloads section to use the sheets or give HyperDFS a spin. (one note: due to the deletion of kickers from FanDuel contests, HyperDFS for FanDuel contests will be offline this week, but we hope to have this minor issue resolved in time for Week 3. The cheat sheet for FanDuel is still available and the DraftKings Lineup Generator is fully functional as usual).


NEW! Check out the new and improved version of our professional lineup builder, RosterWatch HyperDFS, also in your downloads section!

*****As a reminder, we always recommend using the Cheat Sheet in conjunction with the Vegas Tool once it is published Saturday evenings as Vegas almost always identifies a few value plays who aren’t necessarily on the sheet, but may provide excellent flexibility cap-wise. Sometimes we will update the sheet through the weekend as information comes in from injury reports, Vegas or elsewhere*****


THE GOAL of the sheet is to reduce the number of players for the weekly slate to players expected to generate Positive Surplus Value (fantasy points over salary expected points). The player pool is narrowed down to players who meet a minimum number of trends.

THE TRENDS are a series of pass/fail threshold tests of position-specific stats predictors. Through the use of predictive models, we have analyzed every predictive metric we could for each position related to Vegas Indicators, Unit Matchups, Individual Matchups, Historical Performance, Game Script, Weather, and so much more.

Using a non-linear model, we’ve found BASELINES for each metric. For each baseline TREND TEST, if the player passed, he receives a [+1]. For example, using the Matchup Tool Rankings vs. QBs, the model found that an Opponent Ranking ranked in the bottom (9) teams allow on average +3.7 surplus points to opposing QBs. If the QB’s matchup is ranked worse than the baseline, the QB receives [+1] trend. In addition to positive trends, negative trends are also included. The model found that the top ranked pass defenses vs. QBs allow on average -5.4 surplus points.


  1. Love the product!

    Quick question. I have Fournette, Lindsey, and Hyde. I can roll with Hyde in the early game, or wait to see if Fournette suits up with Lindsey as a fall back. Which do you think? PPR

    1. Like the plan. Hopefully Fournette is a go.

  2. Thanks for helping me get a deal done to acquire Freeman for Hilton in my PPR league where I already had AB, Keenan Allen, Gordon, Cobb, & Miller but only Collins, Burkhead, Kerryon, Crowell and Penny at RB.

    Need help consolidating my team in my other 12 team half-PPR league:

    RBs: Zeke, Mixon, Howard, Drake, Kerryon, Peterson
    WRs: Gordon, Kupp, Watkins, Jordy, Miller

    Trying to upgrade my WR and package 2 guys in a trade 1 player deal so I’ looking at teams who need RB help since I have depth there and we only start 2 or 3 since there’s a FLEX. Looking at 2 different teams who are weak at RB with Julio on one and Hopkins and Hilton on the other. In a bubble what’s the most you’d offer for any of those WRs? I know both owners like Howard.

    1. Am I writing in invisible ink or something? I’d even take some advice from some of the non-experts here… I really don’t understand why my questions get skipped, yet you’ll take the time to answer start/sit questions and waiver questions that RW supplies more than enough tools to make your own informed decisions on? I get it there are some tough calls some times, but I feel like the more in depth trade and roster construction questions should be priority since they’re not as clear cut sometimes. I can also understand that if you’re like me and manage 3 or 4+ season long teams (hence why I ask for help a lot) you’l need some start/sit questions every now and then but man every other question got answered but mine? Don’t take this the wrong way, as I’ve been a Rosterwatch member for YEARS and I appreciate all the help I do get, when I get it but I just figured I’d share some feedback. Also I want to add my thoughts that if people want to chime in and help others, I get it but I think most would agree they care more about the advice and opinions of the true experts around here like Alex, Byron, and the filthy Trashman! I could easily share my opinion on most people’s questions but I wouldn’t want to be the reason someone doesn’t get an expert answer from one of the experts who have way more insight and knowledge than of us…

      Sorry I also might be a little annoyed that I just found out Freeman is gonna miss more than just week 2 (traded for him but gave up Hilton) and I also potentially might be losing Josh Gordon whom I own everywhere as my WR1 pretty much.

      Okay end rant.

      1. OH MY… just realized that the comment/reply by Byron below for “Tinknocker” was intended for me!? Had no idea you saw other post! Wow I feel horrible! Thank you so much Byron! NO need to worry about every losing me as a member!

  3. Hi guys, quick question.

    Standard league, I have mixon ( that hurts a little after I lost Olsen and Walker last week) and I’m considering picking up either Crowell, Kerryon, or Lindsay before Sunday as a flier for this weekend. Which player do you think has the most season upside, or at least the next 4 weeks?

    Thanks allot!

    1. Answered this inside the other thread where you asked. Thanks for your support!

  4. Ive got a bit of a dilemma. 12 team 2 QB Keeper Keep 6, .2 PPR (weird I know), dress 3 WR +flex


    Ajax/Royce Freeman/Lewis/Ingram/Guice

    Ekeler got dropped to waivers. Thinking I should make a bid. But I am torn between Pettis and Godwin to scoop him up. Premium backup with stand alone, and I am thin at RB.

    Thoughts nation?

    1. In a keeper it would be difficult for us to drop Godwin or Pettis for Ekeler. Don’t hate the idea, just unclear he’s a better own than anyone on your current roster. Believe that is Ajayi in your roster- don’t believe you are as thin at RB as you think.

      But, I guess if you can only keep 6, I’d consider it. Very close call. Will you ever be able to actually start Ekeler if Gordon doesn’t go down?

  6. Mixon injury- should I react?
    1point PPR play 2 RB. 3WR. 1Flex
    My RB: Kamara. MGordonIII. Mixon. JConnor. CThompson. JWilliams
    My WR: THill. JuJu S-S. CHogan. MArvJones. NAgholor. AMiller

    Should I pick up SMichel or Ekeler and drop AMiller for more RB depth
    leave RB alone and pick up WR Enunwa or John Brown and drop AMiller
    Pick up TE J Cook. Or A S-F. To play instead of Njoku

    Thank you

    1. You should absolutely own Ekeler as a Gordon owner, regardless. Hate dropping MillerTime but that’s prob ok. Honestly, if I’m not playing him I’m also considering dropping CHogan. Miller is a stash. Hogan is dead as weekly play as soon as Edelman returns, and it’s not clear that he’s even a good weekly play right now. Dorsett looked good.

    The lineup generator for FanDuel is not working for me. It didn’t work last week either. Any idea when it will be up and running?

    1. We have made improvements to the models that support our Fan Duel product on HyperDFS. These updates will be completed shortly, and the Fan Duel functionality will promptly become available again to our PRO subscribers. Please reference the Fan Duel DFS Cheat Sheet in the meantime. Thank you for your patience. We greatly appreciate your support!

      ETA is WK3 or WK4

    Fournette owner in 2 leagues (yeldon isnt avilable in either) Have him in my flex for now here are options (if i wait until game time )

    1: Burkhead (Q), Penny, Millertime (Starting Saquon and Connor)
    2: Burkhead, millertime (Starting Kamara and C. Thompson)

    If i make the swap now my options open up to the following:

    1: Hogam, Lamar miller, K johnson, W fuller
    2: Jamaal Williams, K johnson, Cobb, josh gordon

    Kind of in a tough position right now and cant decide what to do. Thanks for any help!

    1. Post By Show Me Your TDs

      both full PPR

    2. I’d play L Miller and Cobb if Rodgers goes. Otherwise, I’d roll the dice on LF w/ Gordon now out too. Tough week of injuries. Gotta grind through it. If somehow Blount sits, Kerryon shoots way up the board.

  9. couple of questions – Would you drop Jimmy G for Alex Smith? Also for flex would you go with Kerryon or Golladay? Thanks

    1. Prob roll with Alex Smith and Golladay.

      1. thanks — i was thinking of season long — Jimmy G v Smith — I have Watkins as a starter

  10. Post By Nebraskan Assassin

    Corey Clement is on waivers. Should I drop any of these for him? Aaron Jones, pettis(currently in the flex) Garcon, Mike Williams, Marshall.

    Have gurley, mixon, fournette and Jones as my backs
    14 team .5

    1. Prob drop Jones or Pettis for Clement.

  11. Post By Eaglesfansince77@yahoo.com

    Losing Mixon for a bit, 14 Team redraft PPR. Gurley my other starter.
    D.Henry, J. Wilkins and Kerryon on my bench. Should I drop any or 2 of them for Jalen Richard/Nyheim Hines?

    1. I would stick with Henry and Kerryon. Wilkins will most likely lose touches when Mack gets back.

  12. Flex Full point PPR- Carlos Hyde, Sterling Shepherd or Sammy Watkins?

    1. Leaning towards Hyde

  13. Do you guys do Kicker? I have Prater but McManus and Hopkins are available. I’m thinking McManus since Oak D is weak. Hopkins has an easy D as well.

    1. I am rolling with McManus. He will be at home kicking in higher altitudes.

      1. Thank you Sushi. Please email us directly rosterwatch@gmail.com, if you are interested in being a regular moderator for the season- we will hook you up

  14. Dearest Man of Trash………….Need one defense ( I stream….pickings be slim)
    help me with this dumpster of cock-o-maimy picks….


    Thanks in advance.

    1. I do have the jets already….feel like that is a fluke though last week

      1. Could be, but those other options aren’t better. I’d roll the Jets and take my chances. Agreed it could be a trap game, but it’s best calculation of the group

  15. Post By rbrusuelas@consolidated.net

    Fournette game time decision and the late start time of game is stressing me. I have TJ Yeldon, should I simply start Yeldon regardless of whether Fournette starts or not? Or avoid the while JAX RB situation and start Carlos Hyde?

    If I wait, I only have WRs left of bench (playing Fournette/Yeldon as Flex to allow WRs). Have Cooper, Hogan, and Shepard sitting on my bench.

    So… start Fournette, Yeldon, Hyde, or a WR? Thanks!!

    1. I’d prob roll Hyde.

  16. Post By gurpindersdeol@gmail.com

    TJ yeldon owner is asking for too much so pick 2 for this week.

    L. Fournette
    D. Henry
    A. Ekeler
    K. Johnson

    Also curious if jordy nelson is droppable for someone like golladay or d-jax or should I just wait and see on him? My receivers are fine so I don’t need an immediate play.

    Thanks for your help!

    1. Post By gurpindersdeol@gmail.com

      12 team standard btw

  17. If Leonard Fournette is a no go, and we find out after the start of the noon games, I have these options, who should I go with, full point PPR:

    T.J. Yeldon
    Royce Freeman
    Kerryon Johnson

  18. I have Hogan in my 1pt PPR LU. Should I consider Chris Godwin or maybe even Callaway from Cleveland. Reds Ginn is also available

  19. Post By trincoach@yahoo.com

    D. Adams or E. Sanders in a standard league? Adams probably gets covered by X. Rhodes

  20. I am really struggling with my core. I want to start Big Ben and Antonio Brown on FanDuel but should I continue with Connor or Melvin Gordon?
