DFS Ownership Percentages: Week 9
Gridiron Experts not only provides our Premium and Platinum Members with Fanduel and DraftKings projected ownership percentage data, but shows them how to use that data effectively to create the best DFS lineups. Getting your hands on ownership percentage is a very valuable source of information in daily fantasy and can give you the winning edge when deciding on who to pick in your GPP lineups.
What is Fanduel Ownership Percentage?
If you enter an NFL daily tournament which includes Thursday players at Fanduel, you are shown the player ownership percentage data once the game is live. You simply click on the player to get more information, and Fanduel will tell you the percentage of ownership for that player in the contest you are in.
You can then use this data when making your lineups for Sunday GPP lineups.
Now, obviously, this is just a helpful guide as there will be a slight change in the player ownership percentage data from the Thursday games to the Sunday games, but for the most part, the information is very close.

But Wait, Didn’t Fanduel Cancel the Data?
Fanduel has made the decision NOT to provide Ownership Percentages of players for games that have not played. So you will know the data, but not until after a game has started.
Gridiron Experts has invested in creating projected daily fantasy ownership percentage data by buying lineups and using a process of elimination along with price point budgeting and Vegas odds each week to create a near perfect replacement.
After three weeks of testing, we feel the results are just as good, and considering how exclusive they now are as the rest of the public don’t have the same access, we feel our Premium Members have an edge to creating the best DFS lineups.

At this point in the season, you would think that any injury to a player would create a massive stock increase to the backup, especially if they were a QB or RB. Yet, people aren’t too excited about Nick Foles this week against the Jacksonville Jaguars. I understand the Chiefs are not usually thought as a powerhouse passing team, but with Spencer Ware out (concussion) and Jeremy Maclin back at practice Friday (rumored to be missing the game with a groin injury), things should be trending upwards.
Foles has a great deep ball and was known for stretching the field when in Philly. Expect a few deep shots this week against a Jaguars secondary that has only three interceptions on the season and ranks near the bottom of the league in passing defense.
Fanduel Salary $7,200 | Ownership 0.56%| DraftKings Salary $5,100 | Ownership 0.57%[the_ad id=”58837″]The pressure is on this week with rumors of a possible QB change in Denver. Broncos coach Gary Kubiak alluded to some frustration with Siemian at his Monday presser. Luckily, Siemian gets to go up against a Raiders defense which ranks last in the league in allowing passing plays of more than 40+ yards, and ranks near the bottom for yards and TD’s allowed through the air.
If you’re trying to create a lineup that goes against the grain, you have to consider Siemian for week 9.
DraftKings Salary $3,900 | Ownership 8.44%
Bang for buck, I’m surprised more people don’t have Sproles in a lineup for week 9 in a PPR format like DraftKings. It was quite obvious that the Eagles loved having Sproles on the field last week against the Cowboys. His quick, elusive speed and excellent hands make him a mismatch nightmare. Sure, Ryan Mathews was the one who punched in the score around the goalline, but the team hasn’t used him much since he fumbled late in the fourth quarter in Detroit.
Fanduel Salary $5,900 | Ownership 1.79% | DraftKings Salary $5,000 | Ownership 2.17%
These Ownership percentage numbers could go up if DeMarco Murray’s injury status takes a turn for the worse, but as we see it now, Henry’s workload should increase heading into the Titans matchup against the Chargers regardless. Murray (toe) was full practice for the Titans on Friday, but the nature of the injury could be nagging. I could easily see a heavy dose of Henry in the second half of this matchup if the Titans are holding the strong lead.
Last week Derrick Henry had 16 carries for 60 yards and a touchdown, with 4 receptions for 37 yards.
Fanduel Salary $8,700 | Ownership 19.44% | DraftKings Salary $8,900 | Ownership 16.88%
Normally, I do everything possible to find a way to get Antonio Brown into a lineup, but this week…. I’m not so sure. The chances of Big Ben coming back and returning to his old form is unlikely. Don’t get me wrong; I respect the heck out of Roethlisberger. He has to be one of the toughest guys in the league. But, Big Ben has been limited at practice this week despite the fact he’s fully expected to suit up against Baltimore. The matchup isn’t great, QB isn’t 100% and the fact that Brown’s cost in daily is still so high, and I think this is the week I take a contrarian approach and buy someone else.
