Week 1 Matchups

The NFL Edge :: 2019 Edition!

__________________

Back in 2015, I developed an article at RotoGrinders that quickly became one of the staple research pieces in daily fantasy football: the NFL Edge, in which I broke down every game of the weekend from top to bottom. If you are reading this, there is a good chance you have been consuming the NFL Edge for three or four years now — and as such, you know that one of my goals each year is to take the NFL Edge and make it even better than it was before.

Last year, we took the biggest step forward in the development of the NFL Edge to date, migrating the article from RotoGrinders to One Week Season, where we were able to build out this site to specifically account for the unique elements that the NFL Edge presents — allowing readers to navigate quickly from game to game, and allowing readers to develop their own personal notes on each game along the way.

I can’t say too much about this right now…but we are in the process of developing a new idea for the NFL Edge (look for an announcement toward the end of August!) that will blow away any improvements we have made in the past — increasing the value of this article exponentially, and once again pushing the limits on what this article can do, and what this article can help you accomplish as a DFS player.

I can hardly wait for this season to get underway!

Excited to hang, fam.
