T.Y. HILTON WEEK 1 AND 2 FANTASY OUTLOOK

T.Y. HILTON IS A BAD DFS VALUE ON FANDUEL AT $7.7K AND DRAFTKINGS AT $6.6K

He is projected for 10.9 FanDuel points and 14.3 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is coming up -$996 short of $7.7K on FanDuel and -$709 short of $6.6K on DraftKings. There should be much better options (see below). Barring a significant lineup change consider him a daily fantasy player to fade. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.
