THE GRIND: DFS Week 12

QB Baker Mayfield CLE

Taking the upside into consideration along with the fact that Baker Mayfield is playing better football – throwing multiple touchdowns in four straight outings – leads me to believe he is the best value at quarterback on the slate.

THE GRIND: DFS Week 10

QB_Russell_Wilson_SEA_1

The Seahawks find themselves as double-digit dogs on the road in LA, but that doesn't mean it won't be a fantasy bonanza when these two teams meet. Wilson has thrown multiple touchdowns in all but one game this season.

THE GRIND: DFS Week 9

TE O.J. Howard TB

I am not going to stop playing O.J. Howard until they raise his price. It’s ridiculous. I can’t understand what the algorithm is telling the Draft Kings tech people to keep his cost suppressed, but I rather enjoy it.

We are into the meat of the NFL season, with each and every week bringing new information to our attention. Treading through all of it while fighting recency bias can be a difficult endeavor. It is important to keep the ...

THE GRIND: DFS Week 5

QB_Matt_Ryan_ATL_1

Right off the bat we are grabbing a major piece of the highest total of the week. Ryan has scored over 30 points on Draft Kings every week since the opening night of the season and now will have to shoot it out with the Steelers if he wants to give his team any path to victory.

THE GRIND: DFS Week 4

WR_Odell_Beckham_NYG_2

The Saints are the worst team in football at defending the pass, period. And yes they did roll coverage to slow down Julio Jones, but the Giants offense is predicated on getting the ball out quick; so don't be shocked at all if OBJ winds up catching 12-14 balls in a game the Giants offense will have to do plenty of catching up.

THE GRIND: DFS Week 3

WR Pierre Garcon SF

Obviously targeting the high total in KC again here. This is the best spot for Pierre Garcon for the remainder of the season. Once the 49ers fall behind, the pass attempts will pile up and with Marquise Goodwin not at full health, Garcon will approach 10- 12 targets in this one.

THE GRIND: DFS Week 2

RB James Conner PIT

Week 1 did not disappoint. It was high-scoring and it had outstanding performances with a few surprises mixed in. Baltimore, Tampa Bay and the New Y0rk Jets lit up the scoreboard, just like we all thought. For daily fantasy (DFS) ...

THE GRIND: DFS Week 1

RB Christian McCaffrey CAR

Season long fantasy football can be a grind in itself, but compared to Daily Fantasy Sports, and especially Daily Fantasy Football, it is a cakewalk. If you are serious about playing DFS on Draft Kings and Fanduel from now through ...

TE_Julius_Thomas_JAC_1

With the lack of stability around the NFL at the running back position, it is not only effecting season-long fantasy footballers all around the nation, it is also causing every daily player in the western hemisphere to play a wide ...

Week 4 Breakouts

WR_Ted_Ginn_CAR_1

I touted James Jones right in this very column last week and proclaimed ‘start him everywhere.’ Of course, his performance got overshadowed by the highest-scoring fantasy football week around the league in a very long time. This week, I will ...

Week 3 Breakouts

RB_C.J._Anderson_DEN_2

No season in recent memory has tested the panic meter on several high profile players like 2015. What can we expect going forward? Who should you target in trades? Should you keep starting players you drafted high and have underperformed ...

Observation Deck – Week 2

RB_Danny_Woodhead_SDC_1

Don’t overreact. Most of the country will do it, for better or for worse. This is especially important when breaking down the numbers after one week of action; because that is all we have to work with – one measly ...
