Draftpot NFL Projections

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 $700k NFL Rush which is a 160,920 entry tournament with a $5 entry fee.

Compare ownership levels with RotoMinds Fantasy Point Projections to identify the best tournament plays for week 4.


POS Player Own
QB Aaron Rodgers 15.20%
QB Derek Carr 12.10%
QB Andy Dalton 11.60%
QB Cam Newton 10.60%
QB Micahel Vick 9.00%
QB Joe Flacco 8.20%
QB Tyrod Taylor 8.10%
QB Carson Palmer 4.50%
QB Matt Ryan 4.30%
QB Philip Rivers 3.10%
QB Russell Wilson 2.30%
QB Andrew Luck 2.20%
QB Peyton Manning 2.00%
QB Eli Manning 0.80%
QB Blake Bortles 0.70%

QB Colin Kaepernick 0.50%
QB James Winston 0.40%
QB Ryan Tannehil 0.20%
QB Drew Brees 0.10%
QB Nick Foles 0.01%

After three consecutive solid weeks, Aaron Rodgers is the most popular quarterback in Thursday contests where 17.2% of users rostered Mike Vick or Joe Flacco. It’s reasonable to say Rodgers willb e 20%+ owned once we lose the Thursday game, the London game and possibly Andrew Luck. Ryan Tannehill, Peyton Manning and Philip Rivers are our best bets for GPP upside this week based on Thursday ownership levels.

Running Backs

RB James Starks 0.70%
RB Arian Foster 0.50%
RB Alfred Morris 0.40%
RB Jonathan Stewart 0.40%
RB Bilal Powell 0.20%

Karlos Williams is the highest owned player at any position in Thursday leagues at 30%. Le’Veon Bell was 29.8% owned in Thursday leagues so it’s safe to assume Williams will approach 35-40% in tournaments and likely 70-75% owned in cash games. Jamaal Charles and Adrian Peterson represent the most tournament upside but there value will depend heavily on reaching the end zone in these matchups.

WR Anquan Boldin 0.50%
WR Torrey Smith 0.40%
WR Marques Colston 0.30%
WR Sammy Watkins 0.20%
WR Jeremy Kerley 0.10%

Steve Smith was 32% owned in Thursday leagues… pause for a moment and laugh with me. James Jones is the next highest owned wide receiver as it looks like many users were forced to use James Jones as their Green Bay handcuff with Aaron Rodgers. After we remove Steve Smith (32%) and Antonio Brown (20%) we should see Larry Fitzgerald, Randall Cobb and Amari Cooper all approach 25-30% owned this week.

Tight Ends

TE Greg Olsen 22.20%

TE Maxx Williams 4.70%
TE Jason Witten 4.10%
TE Kyle Rudolph 1.90%
TE Gary Barnidge 0.80%
TE Jared Cook 0.40%

Greg Olsen is the popular play at tight end this week with Gronkowski and the Patriots having the week off for their bye week. Jimmy Graham and Travis Kelce represent the best tournament plays in week 4 based on Thursday ownership levels.

Defense is pretty straight forward most weeks and week for is more of the same. The Miami Dolphins represent the best tournament value in week 4 based on Thursday ownership levels.
