ASL has found these top-value players from three top projection sources to help you win your Daily Fantasy NFL contests.

If you're playing Daily Fantasy NFL contests, you might find these top-value players helpful for building your lineup. ASL has calculated optimum lineups for DraftKings and FanDuel contests, based on multiple top projection sources and a "Blend" lineup that uses all sources together. These aren't necessarily the players that will score the most points, but represent the most value (points/salary) as part of an ideal lineup calculation.
