Ownership Percentages following Week 5 are below. As usual and expected, the more the player is selected by experts, the higher his ownership percentage. Not much change over last week. The noticeable difference is that the GPP chart has begun to form a bit of a pattern.

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.
