NFL Week 1 DFS Quarterback Plays for DraftKings & FanDuel



Are we ready for some football?! I’m Joe DiCarlo, new hire to WinDailySports, and very excited to be a part of the team. The 2022-23 NFL season is finally here, so let’s get down to business and break down these quarterbacks for this Main Slate. There are so many ways to go this week at quarterback. With all the moves during this past off-season, we can pay up for the studs or pay down for value. Once you’re done with this article make sure to check out our expert chat on Discord

Let’s check out our NFL Week 1 DFS Quarterbacks!


Herbert gets another crack at the Raiders after losing to them in one of the most thrilling games of the 2021-22 season. He threw for 383 yards and three touchdowns in a shootout win-or-go-home game against Las Vegas. Herbert is up there in price across all of the DFS formats, but well worth his salary on a game in which he definitely will show up to play for. In 2021 he threw for over 5,000 yards with 38 touchdowns, even more of a reason for your QB in Week One as well as the season.


Even though Lamar still hasn’t landed a new contract, he is nonetheless a team player and is here to compete. In Baltimore’s run-heavy offense, he is the true number-one option for the Ravens. Playing against one of the highest DVOA run defenses from 2021 in the New York Jets, Jackson will be a cheat code. With running back J. K. Dobbins still not ready for a full workload and backup Gus Edwards still on IR, Lamar will feast. Baltimore also being very thin at the wide receiver position to start the year also helps benefit Lamar by abandoning the pass and breaking out of the pocket for chinks of yardage. For cash games, he’s a lock.


Murray will be entering his fourth year in the league and each year has become more efficient, finishing the season with a 69 percent completion rate. He will be home to host Pat Mahomes and the Cheifs which already has an O/U of 53.5 and some shoot-out potential. KC was the most generous last season to opposing quarterbacks in fantasy points and may bleed out even more losing Tyrann Mathieu to free agency. Look for Kyler to use his legs even more than his arm in this one. The Chiefs play a lot of 4-3 and zone coverage that would allow plenty of yards on the ground to Murray.


I am all over Phila this year for NFL DFS who have one of the softest schedules. Hurts is in The Motor City to beat up the Lions’ soft D, who was the red-headed stepson of the league last year. Now that the Eagles have signed a true alpha receiver in AJ Brown, opposing teams will have to respect their passing game. Hurts is another dual-threat quarterback who should have a field day this week while giving you 3X on his pricetag, a nice cash game option.


Before Jameis went down with an ACL injury in Week 8 last year, he was very efficient throwing for 14 touchdowns to only three picks. Should he be ready to start Week 1 he is at a bargain, especially on DK and a sneaky GPP play against Atlanta. The Falcons’ defense looks like it will be another dumpster fire this season that ranked at the bottom of every stat sheet in 2021. Winston could do 4 times his salary…LFG!


All eyes will be on Baker this Sunday as his former team of Clevland will welcome him to his new home in Carolina. I mean can we get any better of a “Revenge Game” narrative than this? The Browns and Mayfield parted ways this offseason after signing Deshaun Watson and trading him for a conditional fifth-round pick. After being tossed out of Cleveland like an old jockstrap the writing is on the wall for Baker to put his stamp on this game. It may be chalky but his salary is too juicy to scroll passed. GPP and cash games are doable for Mayfield.


So we may have another “Revenge Game” on the Main Slate for Week 1, “Jersey” Joe Flacco…all jokes aside I am serious about this play. If Zach Wilson does sit out in the Jets’ home opener, Flacco could ball out against his former team where he won MVP of Super Bowl 47. New York is loaded with young talent with Moore, G. Wilson, and Breece Hall. Baltimore is no slouch on defense though, but Joe is way too cheap to not hit value this week. I would stay away from him in cash games but awesome for GPP.
