It’s finally here- Week 1 of the 2022 season (more importantly we have meaningful DraftKings contests!) After rosters and coaches changed during the offseason, we can start to see how things are truly going to pan out this season.
This season, we are back offering you DFS advice to try and help you navigate your way to victories throughout the season. The players selected here are based on their price, their ability to hit value and likely ownership.
The selections are leaning more towards GPP slates, rather than cash (50/50) slates. But let’s get into it

Jalen Hurts @DET ($6,800)
Hurts comes into Week 1 with alot of people having high expectations on him for fantasy. It’s easy to see why. He has true dual-threat ability which helps for fantasy, as well as improved receivers with the addition of A.J. Brown.
The Eagles are expected to score points against Detroit, and with Hurts throwing and rushing the ball, he is at the center of it all
Derek Carr @LAC ($5,900)
Carr was a target for me in draft season, last season he was among the best in the league with 4,804 yards. Then the team went out and acquired one of the best receivers in the league, Davante Adams.
In a game that should have plenty of points, he is a solid addition if you want to spend down a little bit.
Jameis Winston @ATL ($5,300)
Winston is cheap this week, probably because there was uncertainty over the starter for the Saints when the slate was released, but this is a great money-saving option.
The Saints have all of their weapons ready to go, with Michael Thomas set to return alongside new additions Jarvis Landry and Chris Olave. Against a Falcons defense that has shown itself to be full of holes, at home, and he is a decent option at the helm of a solid offense.
