The first week of the 2018 NFL season brought with it some of the highest scores we’ll see all year, both in real football and in fantasy football. The chalk hit like never before and salaries were soft, the combination of which led to explosive lineups.
Week 2 will feel different in comparison. Salaries are more realistic for Week 2 because they weren’t set a month in advance. But there is still value to be found, and we’re here to help give you some thoughts for setting a cash lineup you’ll like.
The “Top Value” charts above show the top values based on projections and salary. However, not all of the players included in the charts should be considered cash game options. The charts are meant to show you — at a glance — which players have the most favorable salary-to-projection ratios, but when selecting players for your cash lineup, other factors need to be considered.
Week 2 cash QB strategy in one sentence: There are options across the spectrum this week, which usually means it’s smart to pay down.
