Last week ended up being a mediocre week in terms of picks. No one really had a huge game but there was some consistency going down the list. Hopefully the momentum rolls over into this week where we should have some competitive division games that I really like this week. Tampa Bay vs New Orleans, Philadelphia vs Washington and Dallas vs the New York Giants are all matchups I’m going to want to be in on this week. Those games have 3 of the 4 highest over/under totals this week and should be exciting games to watch. I’ll be paying up for running backs this week and looking for some value in the wide receiver area. Continue reading

Hey everyone, welcome to week 13. There are 13 games on the slate this week and there’s a bit of weather to deal with for a few of the matchups. It looks like the games in Green Bay and Chicago have a 90% chance of precipitation. Pittsburgh and Cincinnati also have slight chances for some rain. We have a lot of options at every position this week. Unfortunately, this post will be shorter than usual. Finals week is coming up and I’m loaded up with school work so, check the notables sections for some additional players to look at this week. I wanted to go with some more off the radar picks this week. Hopefully it makes building your lineups a little easier. The usual suspects like Aaron Rodgers, David Johnson and the obvious others are all still in play. There are a lot of opportunities save salary this week and spend up for stud players.

Here we are, week 12 marks the three quarter mark of the season and it feels like it’s flying by. I hope everyone had a nice Holiday and enjoyed all the games on Thursday. I have another set of what I think are great picks for your lineups this week. With 12 games on the slate there are some matchups I really like this week and some value to be had if you’re willing to take a risk or two.

Draftkings NFL Daily Fantasy Picks for Week 11

I’m going to admit right off the bat that week 10 was not kind to me. Hopefully the only pick you took away from last week was Jordy Nelson. Other than that, I let you down on pretty much every other pick. Week 10 might have actually topped ‘way off week three.’ Bad weeks are bound to happen in daily fantasy, especially with football. The only thing to do now is hop back in the saddle and move on to week 11. And for the record, I’m blaming the super moon. Continue reading

Welcome again daily fantasy football fans and players! For those who might be following along week to week, I apologize for not posting last week.

Week 10 has some great matchups and a nice 12 game slate.

Hello again, Week 8 is here and it marks the halfway point of the season. I may have been a week late on the Bortles pick last week. He could be the QB#1 this week after all that garbage time on Thursday. But, as usual I’m focusing on the Sunday 1pm slate this week, there are 6 teams on bye and there’s an early 9am game so there are only 10 games on the slate this week. As always there are the obvious and not so obvious picks and I’m here to help you navigate through all these matchups and find the guys that can get you those big numbers and get you above the cash line in your tournaments.

Hello again, and welcome to week 7 of my DraftKings weekly column, where I offer up some my picks each week for the 1pm Sunday only slate. It looks like a bit of a tough week this week, I don’t like the matchups for a lot of the more expensive guys and there’s not many obvious bargains. So, I’m mostly covering the middle tier guys this week. Hopefully, I can help you fill any holes you might already have in your lineups or help you start fresh and give you a core group of guys that you can build your own lineup around. Continue reading

Week Six is upon us and I’m back with some more DraftKings picks for you to consider for your lineups. My high price picks last week worked out a lot better than the bargains, go figure. Finding great value at a low price can be difficult but that’s the name of the game. Find the cheap guy that’s going to earn 6-8 times his projected value so you can plug all the big stars that you know will do well. This week looks like it’s going to be another tough week to find that bargain player. Last week it was Cameron Meredith and Sammie Coates. Both of these guys are reasonably priced this week and will likely see similar workloads. Although defenses won’t be caught off guard by them again now that we’ve seen what they’re capable of. Plus, I don’t like chasing points from last week. I might have them in one or two lineups just because they fit well, but otherwise I won’t have a ton of them. Now, let’s find that sleeper and get some solid picks into your lineups. Continue reading

Hopefully your week three was better than mine. The week wasn’t a total loss thanks to the Monday-Thursday slate. I’m not apologizing for the picks that didn’t work out last week. Every player that goes into these columns each week are in my own lineups in one way or another. So now the ‘way off week three” is behind us, it’s on to better things this week. We have a couple nice matchups and injuries to work with this week. Let’s get right into it.
