The biggest DFS price movers in the NFL leading into Week 5
Being a DFS analyst sometimes feels as much like being a psychoanalyst as it does being a statistician. You see, DFS really is a market unlike traditional sports. While the season long owner can only needs to determine which of two players is better in a given trade or weekly roster decision, the DFS owner needs to consider not only the quality of the player and the match-up, but the price for that given week as well.
A player that was a nearly unanimous play at $5,000 like James Conner can become unplayable at $7,800 in the blink of an eye, and on the flip side, a slumping player like David Johnson can eventually reach a point where he's too cheap, even considering the rough start he's off to. Let's take a look at some big movers and shakers this season, and see if we can't pinpoint a few guys whose prices could increase dramatically going forward.
