DraftKings Picks: Divisional Round

DraftKings Picks: Divisional Round

After a disappointing Wild Card weekend, here’s to hoping the Divisional Round games are more competitive in the NFL.  The beautiful thing about DraftKings is that even if the games are not great, we can still have fun tracking our fantasy players.  Let’s see if we can make our last week a winner.

DraftKings Picks: Wild Card Weekend

DraftKings Picks: Wild Card Weekend

It is Wild Card weekend, which is one of the most fun weekends of the NFL calendar!  All fantasy seasons are done, but daily fantasy is still going strong and I have some players to recommend for you.  We are heading into the home stretch so let’s get right to it. Click Here for this […]

Week 17 NFL DraftKings picks

Week 17 NFL DraftKings picks

Happy New Year everyone!  Last week was hugely frustrating for me – I had a lineup with David Johnson (34.6 DK points), LeSean McCoy (28.5), Allen Robinson (26.7), Adam Thielen (47.6), Delanie Walker (11.3), Mark Ingram (25.3) and the Chargers defense (10.0) heading into the Sunday night game.  I was in about 150th place out […]

Week 16 NFL DraftKings picks

Week 16 NFL DraftKings picks

Merry Christmas!  Happy Hanukkah!  Happy whatever holiday it is you celebrate!  The NFL’s gift to us this holiday season is to spread out their slate as much as possible.  There are 12 games on Christmas Eve (for the 12 days of Christmas?), so I will be focusing on that slate.  There is a lot to […]

Week 15 NFL DraftKings picks

How is everyone doing this week?  As I have told you all a few times, I usually make 6-8 lineups a week in football, pivoting around my main core and play GPP only.  Last week when constructing one of my lineups, I noticed that all of my players were playing in 1:00 games, so I […]

Week 14 NFL DraftKings picks

It’s getting to be late in the season, and one thing we have to look out for at this point is the weather.  I write this while freezing my big ass off in snowy Montreal, Canada – and there will be football played in places that will be cold and snowy like Montreal this weekend. […]

Week 13 NFL DraftKings picks

Week 13 NFL DraftKings picks

How is everyone doing this week?  It was my second good week in a row last week, and I hope you took advantage.  Some of the guys I recommended were flops (Russell Wilson, Allen Robinson), but I more than made up for it with some gems like Brandon Marshall, Carlos Hyde and especially Travis Kelce. […]

Week 12 NFL DraftKings picks

Week 12 NFL DraftKings picks

Hey guys!  I hope it has been a glorious Thanksgiving week for all.  The key to having a great week, especially in GPPs, is to hit on your low owned, low-priced plays so that you can fit more studs in your lineups.  Last week in this space, I recommended Malcolm Mitchell, who was under 1% […]

DraftKings NFL Thanksgiving Day Special

DraftKings NFL Thanksgiving Day Special

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  I am a proud Canadian, but I lived in the US for 8+ years, and one thing that I miss the most is Thanksgiving.  Since my family was up in the north, we used to get together with our close friends for some football and food every Thanksgiving, and it was one […]

Week 11 NFL DraftKings picks

Alright boys and girls, I am ready for another fantastic week of daily fantasy football this week.  This is as tough a week as you will see on DraftKings as value plays are few and far between.  That having been said, I have still found some guys that I like and will be happy to […]

Week 10 NFL DraftKings picks

Hi all!  My sincere apologies for the delay this week.  I truly wish that I could write about and play fantasy sports for a living (I really do), but that is not my reality.  Unfortunately for me, my real job got in the way this week and I was unable to find the time to […]

Week 9 NFL DraftKings picks

Week 9 NFL DraftKings picks

What a great time to be a sports fan!  I am exhausted as I write this on Thursday morning with the Cubs and Indians keeping me up all night.  But there is no rest for the sports fan.  Being a huge NHL fan and DFS player, I have a 12 game slate to analyze and […]

Week 8 NFL DraftKings picks

Week 8 NFL DraftKings picks

Usually I begin my DraftKings scouting for the week when the salaries are released on Tuesday.  I will scroll through the match-ups and salaries and jot down some of the plays that I like before actually studying the numbers.  This week I performed that exercise and I must have set a personal record for the […]

Week 7 NFL DraftKings picks

Week 7 NFL DraftKings picks

Oh what could have been!  I always research and write this article before I look at which players others in the fantasy community are recommending.  This is mainly for two reasons: I don’t want other peoples’ opinions to influence my opinion here, and I don’t want to inadvertently borrow someone else’s work. Last week, my […]

Week 6 NFL DraftKings picks

Week 6 NFL DraftKings picks

Ladies and gentlemen, it is great to be back here to give you some daily fantasy football guidance.  The last two weeks have actually been my DFS quasi-offseason as I have only been playing daily fantasy football since the end of the baseball regular season.  Now that hockey is back, I am back into the […]

Week 5 NFL DraftKings picks

Week 5 NFL DraftKings picks

I have a friend, let’s call him Allan (his name actually is Allan, so this is convenient), who is an excellent season-long fantasy sports player.  Allan drafted Sammy Watkins and Eric Decker as two of his top 3 receivers this year, and now has a fantasy team that is hemorrhaging at wide receiver and will […]

Daily Fantasy Quick Hits – October 2

Daily Fantasy Quick Hits – October 2

Welcome to the season finale everyone!  What a great year it has been for me, and I hope that you have all benefited as well.  Truth be told, because it is a holiday for me today, and because of my NFL DFS entries, I think I am skipping baseball today, so I have played my […]

Daily Fantasy Quick Hits – October 1

Daily Fantasy Quick Hits – October 1

Hello again everyone!  There are only two days left in the daily fantasy baseball season so let’s take advantage.  Today, there are two aces on the mound in Kershaw and Lester, but both play for playoff bound teams, so I am a little bit weary of using them as they may be on low pitch […]

Daily Fantasy Quick Hits – September 30

Daily Fantasy Quick Hits – September 30

Welcome again everybody!  We are winding down the MLB season and also winding down the daily fantasy season.  At this point we have to really be aware of teams that are resting guys for the playoffs (like the Cubs) while also doing our regular analysis.  It is not the easiest task and it is really […]

Week 4 NFL DraftKings picks

Week 4 NFL DraftKings picks

I can’t believe that it is week 4 of the NFL season already, but time flies when you are having fun.  At this stage in the season, we have a more robust data set to work with based on this season and we can start throwing the 2015 season into the rearview mirror.  In my […]
