Rush Classic Pack 

Now that we've established the contents of each pack, let's delve into a few crucial aspects regarding the player cards featured in them and explore their potential expected value (EV).

To begin, let's examine some key facts of this drop. There is plenty of star power in this drop, with teams like Miami and Buffalo set to face off in a pivotal Week 5 matchup. Here are the total numbers of players at each position that can be found in the drop

  • QB: 18
  • RB: 27
  • WR: 57
  • TE: 17
  • DEF: 0
  • K: 0

Projected Value Per Pack: $69.50 

Projected EV: +$19.50 if you buy 5* (for an average price of $50 per pack) 

Top Cards: 

*All at the ELITE tier

  1. Bijan Robinson 
  2. Jalen Hurts
  3. AJ Brown
  4. Travis Kelce
  5. Amon-Ra St. Brown
  6. Patrick Mahomes
  7. Tyreek Hill
  8. Justin Jefferson
  9. Chris Olave
  10. Ja'Marr Chase

Now, calculating the EV of these packs is relatively straightforward. Multiply the number of cards for each player at each tier by their price/marketplace value, or in our instance projected value ($716,000 total) for all tiers, and then divide the result by the number of packs available (10,300).

While it's evident that not every pack will attain that anticipated value, it's worth noting that there are a few chances to get a card worth around $700, based on current marketplace value. Also, the average points per player in this pack is one of the highest of any all season. Despite the high supply and the upcoming shift in prize pools from the CORE to the higher tiers, these cards offer plenty of utility, making them attractive at the promotional price points.

Also, stay tuned to DraftKings Social Networks and Discord for announcements regarding Week 6 RUSH-only contests! So, get ready at 6:00 p.m. ET today! Make sure to check out all the available
