Position 1: DraftKings NFL Daily Fantasy Sports Lineup Breakdown – Quarterback (QB):
Cam Newton (Carolina Panthers) (34.82 Points Scored) 4 PaTD, 353 PaYds, 1 INT, 1 300+Pass, 37 RuYds, 1 FUM (9.6% Owned)
An elite quarterback who can score with both his feet and his arm Cam Newton will pretty much be a strong pick on any given weekend. With a talented team behind him and more propensity to throw the football now Cam should provide value no matter what week you play him.

Position 2: DraftKings NFL Daily Fantasy Sports Lineup Breakdown – Running Back (RB):
LeGarrette Blount (New England Patriots) (21.3 Points Scored) 1 RuTD, 123 RuYds, 1 100+RushRuYds (12.1% Owned)
The beneficiary of backup and hurt quarterback play LeGarrette Blount put up daily fantasy sports numbers this past weekend. While one of the hardest parts of predicting the Patriots running game is figuring out which players are going to get touches this might be a year Blount gets to showcase his talents and is someone to watch closely at least until Tom Brady is back.

Position 3: DraftKings NFL Daily Fantasy Sports Lineup Breakdown – Running Back (RB)
David Johnson (Arizona Cardinals) (17.3 Points Scored) 45 RuYds, 98 RecYds, 3 REC (14.7% Owned)
One of the best running backs in the entire NFL its hard to go wrong with a David Johnson pick. A multi threat back that gets a heavy workload he is in for big numbers on any given weekend. While he underformed in this daily fantasy sports lineup he still brought in plenty of points and enough to propell the leading DFS lineup to huge win and million dollar scoop.

Position 4: DraftKings NFL Daily Fantasy Sports Lineup Breakdown – Wide Receiver (WR):
Kelvin Benjamin (Carolina Panthers) (32.8 Points Scored) 2 RecTD, 108 RecYds, 7 REC, 1 100+Rec (13.6% Owned)
Just a monster this year Benjamin has now scored in back to back weeks and puts up double TD weekend here. Looks like Cam will be looking often for him in the end zone and he has the perfect skill sets to catch lots more touchdowns as well as the quartback to back up his talent.

Position 5: DraftKings NFL Daily Fantasy Sports Lineup Breakdown – Wide Receiver (WR):
Travis Benjamin (San Diego Chargers) (32.4 Points Scored 2 RecTD, 115 RecYds, 6 REC, 1 100+Rec, -1 RuYds (15.6% Owned)
I guess this NFL week 2 was all about the Benjamins in more ways this one. San Diego is dealing with a plethora of injuries and it looks like Travis might be one of the ones picking up the slack. Highest % owned player on the team and now with season ending injuries to both Allen and Woodhead we could be seeing a lot more run for Travis and at the current price of $4400 how could you go wrong until it adjusts accordingly. Great value here but not a real secret either.

Position 6: DraftKings NFL Daily Fantasy Sports Lineup Breakdown – Wide Receiver (WR):
Marvin Jones Jr. (Detroit Lions) (22.8 Points Scored) 118 RecYds, 8 REC, 1 100+Rec (8.8%)
11 targets this week and it looks like Jones Jr. may be competing closely with Golden Tate for the number 1 receiver spot on the roster. Still no TD’s under his belt yet but at $5500 and double digit targets per game Marvin is one we will certainly want to keep our eyes on all year until a major price move or news report occurs.

Position 7: DraftKings NFL Daily Fantasy Sports Lineup Breakdown – Tight End (TE):
Antonio Gates (San Diego Chargers) (10.5 Points Scored) 1 RecTD, 15 RecYds, 3 REC (3.8% Owned)
The lowest pick owned on the team and only a recipient of 15 receiving yards this pick was probably not that great of a play despite the TD. Probably more a result of injuries then anything Gates is probably nothing to take note of until he starts performing more.

Position 8: DraftKings NFL Daily Fantasy Sports Lineup Breakdown – FLEX:
Stefon Diggs (Minnesota Vikings) (36.2 Points Scored) 1 RecTD, 182 RecYds, 9 REC, 1 100+Rec (5.4% Owned)
20 targets in two weeks and a missing Adrian Peterson might mean Diggs will be seeing huge fantasy numbers for weeks to come.An obvious early Bradford favorite this is one cheaper WR we will want to keep our eye on. Almost 200 yards in one game is off the charts so who really knows what the ceiling is here.

Position 9: DraftKings NFL Daily Fantasy Sports Lineup Breakdown – Defense (D):
Broncos (22 Pts) 5 SACK, 1 INT, 1 DFR, 2 DefTD, 1 14-20 PA (4.6% Owned)
At this the Von Miller lead Broncos are pretty much the best defense in the league and proving yet again how valuable NFL defenses can be. Anyone say defense equals Super Bowl titles? Best in the game right now and must play.
