Each year, daily fantasy sports are becoming more and more popular. With DraftKings, you are given a $50,000 salary cap to create your NFL roster and compete with others that did the same thing. Select nine players who each count a specific amount against your salary cap. There is a total of $100,000 in prizes and a $10,000 first place prize for week 1 and it is FREE!

Right now, WR Julio Jones of the Atlanta Falcons is the most expensive player available with a salary cap figure of $9,300. Which San Francisco 49ers players are the most expensive for week 1 of the NFL season? The answer may surprise you and give you some confidence to outsmart others.


Find the top 10 listed below. The 49ers open the season on Monday, September 14 against the Minnesota Vikings at Levi's Stadium.

What is interesting is that QB Dylan Thompson is on the practice squad, RB Kendall Hunter is on IR, and TE Vernon Davis — a starter — comes in cheaper than either of those players.

Week 1 might be a good opportunity for you to beat some players that don't yet know any better.
