I can't remember an uglier start to the week than this Week 7 in daily fantasy sports.
For starters, Aaron Rodgers' injury is a real bummer for any football fan – real life, fantasy, dfs, etc. Football is better when Rodgers is playing, because it's fun watching the best in the world at what they do.
For DFS purposes, Saints-Packers looked like a fun shootout to target. Now you have to wonder if the Packers can keep up with Brett Hundley.
Second, if you're playing on DraftKings, that very fun-looking Falcons-Patriots game on Sunday night isn't on the main slate of games. FanDuel is where the fun is this week on the main slate.
Third, there are six games as of this writing with an over/under at 42 or below. That makes this week especially difficult when there are very few easy games to target.
The key to this week in DFS? I think it's figuring out which of these low total games goes way over what Las Vegas thinks. Keep an eye on those lines throughout the week to see if any sharp money comes in on an over bet.
This week's picks:
