NFL Week 1 Field Report – FanDuel

Welcome to the RotoMinds NFL Field Report where we will take a look at ownership levels in Thursday Night GPP’s on FanDuel. This week we will be using results from the $250k NFL Rush which is a 57,471 entry tournament with a $5 entry fee and the $2 GPP. Enjoy!

Compare ownership levels with RotoMinds Fantasy Point Projections to identify the best tournament plays for week 1.


Player Own %
Tom Brady 24.7%
Sam Bradford 15.0%
Ben Roethlisberger 10.4%
Tyrod Taylor 7.8%
Aaron Rodgers 5.1%
Ryan Tannehill 5.0%
Andrew Luck 3.4%
Matt Ryan 3.3%
Tony Romo 3.3%
Carson Palmer 2.2%
Peyton Manning 1.7%
Cam Newton 1.6%
Eli Manning 1.5%

Removing Brady and Big Ben from the player pool we should see a slight increase to Bradford and a more significant bump to Tyrod Taylor. We are also expecting a moderate bump for Aaron Rodgers as he should approach the 8-10% range.

T.Y. Hilton 4.2%
Rueben Randle 2.7%
Emmanuel Sanders 2.5%
Sammy Watkins 1.2%

With 3 WR’s over 10% and one approaching 25% we should expect an increase to 8-15% range on a few of the top end guys with Julio Jones remaining about the same with if Roddy White is confirmed as a starter this week.

Tight Ends

Rob Gronkowski 32.4%
Greg Olsen 16.8%

Jason Witten 4.1%
Jordan Cameron 3.2%
Delaine Walker 2.8%
Tyler Eifert 2.6%
Richard Rodgers 1.5%
Austin Seferian-Jenkins 0.6%

Tight end ownership levels should change quite a bit with Gronk out of the player pool on Sunday. Greg Olsen appears to be the chalk play at tight end this week.

Team Defense

Team Own %
New York Jets 18.9%
Miami Dolphins 16.2%
Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2.8%
Minnesota Vikings 2.4%
San Diego Chargers 0.4%

By Sunday we are projecting that both the Jets and Dolphins will cary 20%+ ownership levels on FanDuel.
