Beauty is in the O-Line of the Beholder

Beauty is in the O-Line of the Beholder

As fantasy owners, we realize that generally the success of an individual player may hinge on several factors. Either directly or indirectly, it may include his teammates, his coaches, the schedule/opponent and even his offensive line. But even the most stellar of statistics can be met with controversy. Take the Chicago Picasso sculpture at Daley […]

A Quick Glance at the 2017 NFL Coaching Changes

A Quick Glance at the 2017 NFL Coaching Changes

An associate at work has recently rekindled my appreciation for The Who. Why do I bring this up? Each season a new batch of coaches are hired to turn around a struggling NFL franchise. Are the new coaches “a substitute for another guy?” “Are the simple things we see all complicated?” The optimist would say […]

32 NFL Teams and 32 Things to Watch

32 NFL Teams and 32 Things to Watch

Players and situations I like “or don’t like” from each NFL team, one month prior to the official start of the 2017 NFL free agent period at 4:00 P.M. on March 9. Arizona: Who stands to benefit next can be up for debate. With the release of Michael Floyd, many see John Brown stepping into […]

NFL Usage Chart

NFL Usage Chart

An NFL scout needs to know more than just the rules and intricacies of the game. An NFL scout must be a student of game film so they can determine which players will benefit their team the most. In the fantasy world, most of us self-proclaimed fantasy scouts do not have access to game film. […]

FanDuel NFL Divisional Round Plays and Stay Aways

This will be the last write-up of the season. Once again, I greatly appreciate anyone and everyone who has read this column this year and hope you have gained some sort of insight at some point along the way. I will see you back next season and will probably be doing some DFS articles during […]

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. Click Here […]

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 […]

FanDuel NFL Wild Card Plays and Stay Aways

FanDuel NFL Wild Card Plays and Stay Aways

Welcome to the Wild Card round. I don’t love these short slates, but I’m too much of a degenerate to not play. I’ll scale back my entries this week, and maybe build a couple teams with some contrarian plays. This week’s write up will be shorter than normal due to a much smaller player pool, but […]

Five Early Picks For Impact Fantasy Rookies In 2017

Five Early Picks For Impact Fantasy Rookies In 2017

The NFL’s regular season has come to an end, and that means that the top of the draft order is now set. This allows football writers and analysts to compile their most accurate mock drafts yet, which gives us a better idea of which skill position players from the college ranks could end up on […]

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 17 Start or Sit

Week 17 Start or Sit

Week 17 is a lot different than every other week in the fantasy season, and a big part of why a lot of people are against playing a week 17 championship. A lot of teams have nothing to play for this week. Whether they have locked up a playoff spot or they have no chance […]

FanDuel NFL Week 17 Plays and Stay Aways

We are finally to Week 17. I shouldn’t say finally, because the regular season has flown by. This year has been a lot of fun! If there is actually anyone out there that does read this each week, I truly want to thank you and I hope I’ve steered you in the right direction more often […]

Waiver Wire Week 17

Waiver Wire Week 17

The last waiver article for the 2016 season. Many are probably already long gone either because of early elimination or a week 16 final. But, for those of you still in the running for a week 17 title, here is my final waiver wire article for the season. And don’t forget my tip from last […]

Start or Sit Week 16

Start or Sit Week 16

Wow. Week 16. Time really flies. If I had to guess for a majority of you this is the championship, or at least week one of a two-week final. I know for weeks I have been saying trust the research, and I do think that is true, but there is something about championship week that […]

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 […]

Just two weeks left in the regular season and it’s a short week of research with the main slate of games on Saturday, so let’s jump right to it.

Week 16 Waiver Wire

Week 16 Waiver Wire

Whether this is your final run at waivers or you have one more go at it before a week 17 matchup, the basic idea doesn’t change. Use whatever FAAB you have left to get one of the top options. You will notice I didn’t put in FAAB amounts or if you should burn a waiver […]

Week 15 Start or Sit

Week 15 Start or Sit

If you’re reading still, congrats on still being alive. Week 15 has a couple interesting storylines heading into the weekend. The cold and the bad quarterback situation. Weather in the Packers/Bears and Chiefs/Titans games are going to be below freezing. While cold isn’t typically a big deal, below freezing is a different story. If I […]

Week 15 NFL DraftKings picks

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 15 Injury Report

Week 15 Injury Report

For most leagues this is the championship week – or next week. Either way, there is little room for error right now. At this point in the season there is very little to say. Make sure to double-check all your players prior to setting your lineup, and good luck to you this week. Darren Sproles […]
