FanDuel Thursday Ownership Percentages

*In 2016 FanDuel has stopped giving out ownership percentages for games that haven’t started yet, so this content is no longer relevant.  Check out my DraftKings NFL Strategy Video!

On this page we will be publishing DFS ownership percentages from the Thursday FanDuel contests, so we can get a rough idea on what ownership will be for those players on the weekend at both FanDuel and DraftKings.

If you are unsure why ownership % can be important when playing Daily Fantasy Sports check out my video “Why Does Ownership Matter in DFS“.

In these Thursday contests the players from the Thursday games are usually over owned, so the weekend players are generally at a lower % then what they will be for the weekend.  Adjust accordingly.  Also take into consideration that sometimes players are either a great value at FanDuel or overpriced, and that affects the percentage as well.
