With the appetizer of Week Zero in the rearview mirror, DraftKings has provided for us with an eleven-game slate for Thursday evening. As a rough roadmap for these offerings, I break down the tiers of options at each position — let’s get to it.
John Rhys Plumlee ($10,600) is the most expensive player on the slate but for good reason. His 50-55 point ceiling makes him an ultra-appealing option to jam into lineups on Thursday. The fact that he’s playing an FBS team means there is a more accessible projection for his ceiling. That being said, Kent State is one of (if not the singular) worst teams in FBS, and this one should be well in hand by halftime if UCF plays how we expect.
