Some of the performances we got from quarterbacks in Week 1 were ridiculous. The top five signal callers on DraftKings averaged just under 30 DKFP collectively. Now that we have some tape to work off of, we have an idea of what gunslingers have the best chance to light it up in Week 2. We’ll go over the best DFS quarterbacks options above $6,000 at DraftKings.
Aaron Rodgers ($6,800), Green Bay Packers vs. Detroit Lions
Rodgers totaled more DKFP (33.8) than any other quarterback in Week 1 and Davante Adams led all players in fantasy points with 44.6. This battery is bound to put up some crazy numbers all year, and the Packers have a very desirable matchup in Week 2. Detroit forked up 242 passing yards and three touchdowns to Mitchell Trubisky. While they didn’t have the Jeff Okudah — the top cornerback prospect in the 2020 NFL Draft class — available, the rookie should have a tough time containing one of the toughest covers in the NFL in his pro debut.
Josh Allen ($6,700), Baltimore Ravens vs. Miami Dolphins
I was one of the people who expected regression from Allen in 2020, but he was a pleasant surprise in Week 1. He threw for 312 yards and two scores and also ran for a score against the New York Jets. Only Rodgers tallied more DKFP than him at the quarterback position, so it’s surprising to see that his price has only risen by $200. Miami forfeited two rushing touchdowns to the New England Patriots’ Cam Newton, and Allen is just as threatening as a dual-threat quarterback.
Kyler Murray ($6,100), Arizona Cardinals vs. Washington Football Team
Murray is another quarterback who is criminally underpriced. He would have eclipsed 30 DKFP if a touchdown pass to DeAndre Hopkins didn’t get called back against the San Francisco 49ers and tallied 230 passing yards while rushing for a score against one of the most feared defenses in the NFL. Murray had rushed for over 100 yards at one point in the game. The second year quarterback’s connection with Hopkins is special, and while Washington shocked the world with its defensive front against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 1, I don’t think it can replicate that performance against one of the most elusive signal callers in the game. Murray’s price has dropped by $300 after putting on one of his best performances ever.
