Welcome into the 1st edition of our Ownership Percentage Results article. This will be a weekly feature moving forward and something that we track in every sport here at DO. With three weeks in the books, I feel this is a nice spot to begin looking at ownership trends using our data from Cash and GPP ownership numbers. Not surprisingly, the more a player is selected by the experts, the higher the ownership percentage. We’ll analyze this data from week to week but for this first article, I’ll just be posting the numbers below.

Below are the updated ownership percentages by position for both Cash and GPP contests. Ownership percentages are taken from a DraftKings Double Up for the “Cash” percentages and from a DraftKings Single entry tournament for the “GPP” percentages. The Count is the number of times that the DFS experts we grade chose a given player at each position.

We use these ownership percentages as the baseline for the projected ownership percentages we include in our Weekly Consensus and Weighted Consensus articles. Analyzing ownership percentages and having an idea of expected ownership percentages for a given player is a great way to understand who the chalk plays will be and who you might be able to be contrarian with and get at a lower ownership percentage.
