We are now over halfway through the NFL season and the ownership percentages have stabilized. For the most part, the more often a player is recommended by the DFS experts we track the higher the ownership percentage, especially in Cash leagues.

At quarterback, the biggest jump occurs when a QB is recommended by at least nine experts. At running back, the biggest jump starts around the seventh or eighth time an RB is selected. Wide Receiver has a couple of different jumps one around six expert recommendations and another jump when they are recommended by at least 10 or more experts. At tight end other than an odd spike around seven and eight the ownership doesn’t trend upward until they are recommended by at least 11 experts. Finally, at defense the increase occurs at a pretty low level of six experts.

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.
