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, FanDuel and Yahoo 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.

Build the best lineups with the power of The Machine for Daily Fantasy Sports.

Here is a top-value quarterback and skill-position player from each projection source for each of the three DFS platforms:
