Week 1 of the 2017 NFL season is in the books and with it our first week of daily fantasy.

Last week we tried to identify some of the best value plays in DraftKings so you could spend a little extra on the likes of Antonio Brown and LeSean McCoy, and did pretty well for ourselves. Carson Wentz was a top five quarterback despite being one of the cheapest on the board, Zach Ertz did the same at tight end, and the Rams defense was the top scoring unit in the league.

This week, the goal is the same — pick some daily fantasy players that have the potential to produce numbers at a cheaper price so you can splurge on superstars elsewhere in your lineup.

Take a look below and see where your lineup can be helped.

QB: Jameis Winston, $6,300

Jameis Winston have had an extra week off and are surely restless to take the field. With a lot to prove after an up-and-down year last season, expect them to come out firing at home against a Bears secondary that is vulnerable to giving up a big play or two. Winston's ability to run with the ball and score on his own is an added bonus.



RB: Ty Montgomery, $5,800

Don't be fooled by his number, Ty Montgomery is a running back and should probably be in your lineup this week. The Packers are heading to Atlanta to take on the Falcons, and will want to establish the run on the road. Last week Montgomery got 23 touches including catching four passes, and the Falcons have trouble defending pass-catching backs.



RB: Kerwynn Williams, $4,800

Kerwynn Williams is filling the shoes of David Johnson for the Arizona Cardinals (and fantasy owners across the country), and is a nice value at under $5,000 for the amount of touches he might be getting on Sunday.



WR: Tyreke Hill, $6,200

Tyreke Hill broke a big run against the Patriots to open the season after calling his own play. Up against the Eagles at home this week, look for him to burn some of Philadelphia's secondary as they tire later in the game.



WR: Chris Hogan, $5,600

With Julien Edelman out for the year and Danny Amendola going down with a concussion against the Chiefs, the Patriots will look to Chris Hogan as their "Next Man Up" against the Saints. Hogan is fast and has solid hands that make him a good go-to look for Brady on midrange routes.



WR: Donte Moncrief, $4,000

It looks like the Colts are going to bench quarterback Scott Tolzien in favor of newly acquired Jacoby Brissett in Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Brissett came into the game last week and threw and impressive jump ball to Moncrief for 50 yards for his only meaningful pass attempt of the game. If the Colts hope to have any more offensive success this week, it'll likely be more of the same.



TE: Jared Cook, $3,300

Jared Cook is another large, unstoppable option that Derek Carr has available to throw to, and had five catches on five targets last week. If you expect the Raiders to tear through the Jets defense, catching Cook at just $3,300 is a value.



DEF: Redskins, $2,900

The Rams may have put up more points than any other team in Week 1, but I don't expect that to be the norm throughout the year. The Redskins have a solid front four that brought a lot of pressure against Carson Wentz last week, and should be able to take down Goff a few times here.
