Daily fantasy sports are much more action-packed than traditional fantasy sports. It happens across a much shorter timeframe too, but this can confuse how DFS games are scored. The Internet has created massive communities oriented around every sport and the fantasy playoffs in them. 

We’re focusing on fantasy football scoring here, the most popular form of fantasy sports that is played in America. You can see NFL daily fantasy sports in action online. Here we have information on how those fantasy games are commonly scored, along with pertinent definitions that beginners will want to know.

 

DFS Point Scoring

Here’s a rundown of how different events in a game are scored under generalized DFS rules. Remember that the specific rules may change depending on who you’re using to manage your fantasy sports games.

Rushing yards made = 0.1 points 0 points allowed = 10 points
Rushing touchdowns = 6 points 1-6 points allowed = 7 points
Passing yards made = 0.04 points 7-13 points allowed = 4 points
Passing touchdowns = 4 points 14-20 points allowed = 1 point
Receiving yards = 0.1 points 21-27 points allowed = 0 points
Receiving touchdowns = 6 points 28-34 points allowed = -1 point
Return touchdowns = 6 points 35+ points allowed = -4 points
Safeties = 2 points Field goals from 0-39 yards = 3 points
Sacks = 1 point Field goals from 40-49 yards = 4 points
Interceptions = -1 point Field goals from 50+ yards = 5 points
Interceptions made = 2 points
Receptions = 0.5 points
Blocked punt/kick = 2 points
Fumbles lost = -2 points
Fumbles recovered after touchdowns = 6 points
Opponent fumbles recovered = 2 points
Kickoff return touchdowns = 6 points
Punt return touchdowns = 6 points
Two-point conversion passes = 2 points
Two-point conversions scored = 2 points
Extra-point conversions = 1 point
Extra point return = 2 points

 

Important Definitions

To properly understand daily fantasy sports, you should know some important definitions that enable you to figure out what’s going on. Here are several:

$/Point: The salary of players, divided by how many fantasy points they score.

50/50: Where half the field is paid evenly, usually double the entrance fee.

Balance: A lineup that’s filled with mid-price range players.

Bankroll: The money you use when betting or playing fantasy sports.

Ceiling: The max points expected from a player based on past performances.

Chalk: A player/team/game expected to be popular with the crowd.

Dart Throw: A longshot play that relies on a player reaching a higher target score. 

Double-Up: Contests where your entry fee is doubled if you’re in the top 50%.

Fish: A new (and inexperienced) DFS player.

Field Size: The number of people in a contest.

Floor: Opposite of ceiling, the lowest points expected from a player based on past performances.

Guaranteed Prize Pool: Tournaments with a guaranteed minimum prize pool.

High Stakes: Contests with a higher entry fee, typically $50.

Head-To-Head: A contest between two DFS players, one on one.

Lean: A preference towards one position over others, e.g., you lean X player over Y player.

Min Salary: The minimum amount a player costs on the site.

Multi-Entry: Where one enters more than one lineup into a contest.

Overlay: When a tournament pays out more money than they receive.

Pay Up: To choose high-price players instead of mid or lower ones.

Player Prop Bet: Oddsmaker lines that focus on one player and their performance.

NFL Daily Fantasy Football: Ranking The Top 10 Toughest WRs

 

2021-22 NFL Computer Predictions and Rankings Fantasy Football Strategy Uncategorized  toughest receivers ranking football fantasy daily  As the National Football League’s newest season starts in less than ten days from now, your favorite bookies have also begun offering Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) football. The DFS football games allow you to earn a huge amount of money as long as you strategize in creating a powerful team composed of the current NFL players.

Aside from the quarterbacks, flex, running back, and tight end, you also need to pick the best wide receivers to create a strong DFS football roster. Wide receivers play the most important role in the offensive side. The WR needs to have the fastest speed since they are responsible for passing and catching the ball to make a goal.

While the NFL is fast approaching, you can take part in many DFS football plays while cheering for your favorite players in the field. To get you guided in forming a winning lineup, here are the current DFS NFL projections of the top ten wide receivers you can pick.

Julio Jones

Julio Jones is topping the DFS football projection today for the best receivers to pick. He is one of the highest-graded WR’s in today’s football generation. In the last five years, Jones has produced a 15-yard gain around 225 receptions. Besides that, he is the starting wide receiver for the Atlanta Falcons since he joined in 2011.

Michael Thomas

Earning around 90.0 receiving grade in the last four seasons, Michael Thomas is another wide receiver to consider in your next DFS plays. He has joined the New Orleans Saints to portray the same position in the field. Like Julio Jones, Thomas is also one of the WR’s who has the highest grade in the said position.

DeAndre Hopkins

The Arizona Cardinals had traded DeAndre Hopkins in the NFL Draft as their new wide receiver. Hopkins is the only WR who produced the highest grade in single coverage, which happened in 2017 when he’s still with the Houston Texans. Apart from that, he also has impressive ball skills, where he recorded 58 balls inside the yard on the sideline.

Tyreek Hill

The defending champions, Kansas City Chiefs, wouldn’t win the Super Bowl LIV if Tyreek Hill didn’t contribute much in the receiving department. In your DFS football plays, there should be no reason not to include Hill in your lineup. Looking into his records, this player made 20-yard targets with 1,964 deep yards.

Chris Godwin

One of the NFL wide receivers who became part of the elite achievers in 2019 is Chris Godwin. He joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2017 as the starting WR, who recently accomplished a 90.7 receiving rate. In the last season, he caught 51.2 in all his targets, which was rated as the third-best performance in the whole NFL season.

Davante Adams

This Fresno State alumnus joined the Green Bay Packers as a wide receiver in 2014. Since then, he is known as one of the toughest route-runners, where he tallied 27 catches within a single coverage during the 2018 season. Today, he is boosting his double move tactics to increase in wide receiving skills.

Mike Evans

With an impressive football record, Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Mike Evans is ranked as the fourth-best NFL wide receivers today. His football fantasy odds look attractive, so don’t forget to consider him in your current roster. In 2017, Evans recorded 37 catches, which came out in a ten yard downfield, making him the leader in all NFL WR’s.

Odell Beckham Jr.

Odell Beckham Jr.’s performance with the Cleveland Browns last year was a bit underwhelming. It’s expected as he played as a rookie and adjusted to how Baker Mayfield performs inside the field. Although he didn’t have a quite impressive performance, he still managed to set an impressive score as a rookie and improved his upcoming plays.

Amari Cooper

Copper arrived in Dallas Cowboys during the 2018 mid-seasons. Upon his arrival, he impacted the receiving department right away, where he ranked the ninth on the best-receiving grade. Today, the Dallas Cowboys ranked 4th among the 32 teams in the receiving division, and Cooper was the guy who contributed to this achievement.

Keenan Allen

Completing the list of today’s DFS football best wide receiver projection is Keenan Allen. Since he joined the Los Angeles Chargers in 2013 as the wide receiver, Allen didn’t make a slip in making his records impressive. In 2017, he made an open separation in a single coverage within 48 targets. With this, he was considered a guy to tap whenever the Chargers need to hustle in an emergency situation.

Takeaway

Forming a successful DFS football lineup is quite challenging. You need to get the best players in the field to make sure that your team can win. Choosing the best performing wide receiver has the same importance as picking the key positions. Make sure to consider the ten names mentioned above to fulfill a winning DFS football dream team.
