DFS VALUE PLAYS: Week 14

TE_Rob_Gronkowski_NEP_2

It is still strange to see Gronkowski priced in the $5K range for a fifth consecutive week but outside of Week 1 and Week 12 we haven’t seen much of the old Gronkowski. In fact it is crazy that a team such as the 9-3 New England Patriots doesn’t have any standout fantasy players we consider for daily DFS on a weekly basis.

DFS GEMS: Week 14

QB_Carson_Wentz_PHI_1

The idea this week is to save a bit of budget so we can spend it elsewhere and Wentz not only gives us a solid spot to save this week but he also might get us a quarterback with moderate ownership in GPP’s.

STREAMING DEFENSES: Week 13

LB Darius Leonard tackles RB Joe Mixon

The only player who has a chance to do any damage versus the Colts is T.J. Yeldon who has done a good job in filling in for Fournette this year. If the Colts shut him down this game has shutout written all over it.

DFS GEMS: Week 13

RB Kareem Hunt, Kansas City Chiefs

You pretty much need a piece of the Kansas City offense every week if you want to secure your spot atop the GPP landscape. At $7,800 (DK) Kareem Hunt makes the most sense this week. Kansas City is set to massacre reeling Oakland and there will be plenty of work for Hunt in this contest.

DFS GEMS: Week 12

WR_Julio_Jones_ATL_1

The Atlanta at New Orleans tilt will have massive fantasy implications in Week 12 boasting the weeks highest over/under which is now up to 60... the fact that the Saints are 13 point favorites only implies a positive game script for Julio Jones and company.

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.

DFS VALUE PLAYS: Week 11

RB_Mark_Ingram_NOS_1

Philadelphia overall this season has played the run well but over the last few weeks it has been gashed by Saquon Barkley and Ezekiel Elliott. The Philadelphia pass defense has not played well, which will open up running lanes for New Orleans.

DFS GEMS: Week 11

Taylon Smith DAL tackles Saquon Barkley NYG

Barkley is another guy we’ll need to spend up for if we want him, and this week against Tampa Bay, you’ll probably want him in a few lineups! Tampa Bay ranks in the Bottom 10 against running backs this season and has given up multiple touchdowns to the position in 4-of-9 contests this season.

DFS VALUE PLAYS: Week 10

QB Andrew Luck IND

Andrew Luck has thrown for 22 or more fantasy points in his last five games suggesting that his price is too cheap for his production. The matchup is tough but the Jaguars can be thrown on as just last game, the Eagles threw for 286 yards and three scores.

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.

DFS GEMS: Week 10

TE_Greg_Olsen_CAR_1

Back-to-back double-digit fantasy outings and a matchup against a Bottom 5 team against opposing tight ends is typically a recipe for success. When you consider the dearth of viable tight end options thus far this season, that pushes Greg Olsen into must-start territory.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 9

QB_Cam_Newton_CAR_1

Let's admit it: Fitzpatrick should've never have been benched for Jameis Winston... Fitzpatrick figures to be one of the better performing field generals this week, but one of the few guys who is a stronger play this week is Cam Newton.

NEW AGE RANKINGS: Week 9

RB Marlon Mack IND

He missed a couple of games due to injury, but Colts RB Marlon Mack currently shakes out as a RB1 according to the NAR, ahead of guys like Adrian Peterson, David Johnson and Phillip Lindsay. Mack has been good enough to reign in the number of throws that Andrew Luck has to attempt every game.

DFS VALUE PLAYS: Week 9

WR Courtland Sutton WR

The trade of Demaryius Thomas to the Texans means Courtland Sutton is ready to take over his role. Thomas was averaging 7 targets a game and Sutton already saw 4.6 targets a game and will split the vacated targets with Emmanuel Sanders. The match-up this week is average but the value should be there. Expect high ownership.

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.

DFS GEMS: Week 9

QB Kirk Cousins MIN

Another week, another great matchup for Kirk Cousins. He’s playing at a Top 5 level in season-long fantasy and hasn’t posted less than 17.5 DraftKings points since the Week 3 debacle against Buffalo. With a floor that safe and sky-high ceiling, Cousins makes a ton of sense coming in just below the top tier of quarterback pricing this week.

STREAMING DEFENSES: Week 8

LB Kyle Van Noy NEP

Let's get one thing clear the Patriots are not a great defense, they may not even be that good of a defense. The Bills are just awful on all sides of the ball. They may very well be the worst team in the NFL and an all time worst offense. Add to that the only player you worry about LeSean McCoy is in the concussion protocol and even when healthy has looked old and slow.

DFS VALUE PLAYS: Week 8

RB Adrian Peterson WAS

The New York Giants have decided to start the rebuilding process by trading away Eli Apple and Damon Harris, who was a Top-5 run-stopper. They also will be without Alec Ogleltree at linebacker. That’s three missing pieces for a run defense that already ranks 20th in run defense entering this game, allowing 186 rushing yards per game with six touchdowns yielded this season.

QB_Aaron_Rodgers_GBP_1

One of the more interesting weeks of the season is upon us as the Chiefs and Rams both return to the main slate. It’s not every Sunday you glance at the Vegas Lines and see Aaron Rodgers as a double-digit ...

DFS GEMS: Week 8

RB Kareem Hunt, Kansas City Chiefs

Hunt was sensational last week and I want to thank him for giving me a Top 4 cash in a Week 7 GPP! This week presents another great opportunity for success as the Broncos and their 8th friendliest defense for opposing running backs visit Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs could score from any angle, at any point, so there is some risk that Hunt might get left out of the scoring party simply by bad luck.

DFS VALUE PLAYS: Week 7

QB_Cam_Newton_CAR_1

Cam Newton hasn’t been below 18 DraftKings points all season and has a ceiling of at least 35 points. The match-up against Philadelphia is a good one as Carolina has allowed 290 passing yards per game with eight passing touchdowns given up this season. The Philadelphia secondary has under-performed this season and Newton has a good opportunity to take advantage.

DFS GEMS: Week 7

QB Mitchell Trubisky CHI

New England is currently allowing an average of 19.5 points per game to opposing passers, good for 10th friendliest in the league. This looks like a good spot for Mitch Trubisky to keep building on his success.

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 LOWDOWN: Week 6

QB_Eli_Manning_Tony_Romo_NFL_1

Other than Saquon Barkley, it seemed as if the entire team gave up after its first series. No fire, no hustle... just going through the motions. I get that Eli Manning is old and is less mobile than the Statue of Liberty; but can we at least try to buy him some time in the pocket?

DFS VALUE PLAYS: Week 6

RB Chris Carson SEA

Last week Chris Carson ran the ball 19 times and caught one pass. The previous week he carried the ball 32 times and caught two passes. If he’s going to get that kind of work at this price point, he has to be considered a core value play.

DFS GEMS: Week 6 – Hurricane Edition

RB Marshawn Lynch OAK

If you are looking for a solid back this week, look no further than Lynch. He isn’t getting traditional workhorse numbers but he is absolutely dominating red zone looks with 19 on the year so far. To put it in perspective that is 34% of the team total not including the quarterback position and more than all of the wide receivers combined.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 5

QB_Carson_Wentz_PHI_1

Carson Wentz is playing himself back into Top 10 levels, and since the Vikings seem to have forgotten how to play defense, there's good reason to have him in the top spot this week...

DFS VALUES: Week 5

RB_T.J_Yeldon_JAC_1

Chalk week was back as 16 of the top 20 owned players produced this week. There were a few disappointments by position such as Drew Brees at QB, Michael Thomas or Odell Beckham Jr. at WR and Tevin Coleman at ...

STREAMING DEFENSES: Week 5

Helmet_Buffalo_Bills_1

Obviously I am not a fan of the Buffalo offense but its defense isn’t that bad. Two weeks ago the defense shut down Minnesota and if it can do that to Minnesota it can do it against Tennessee. Marcus Mariota hasn’t taken that next step we all expected him to make and Buffalo can exploit that.

DFS GEMS: Week 5

WR_Philip_Rivers_SDC_1

This one has shootout written all over it! The over/under has risen to 53.5 with L.A. possessing a 29.5 point implied total. Rivers should have ample opportunity to put up points against this middling pass defense so while he is one of the higher priced quarterbacks this week, he should easily provide good ROI.

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.

DFS VALUE PLAYS: Week 4

TE_Benjamin_Watson_NOS_1

Watson gets overlooked this week but people forget that tight ends against the Giants is still a thing. Last week the Giants allowed 115 receiving yards to the Texans tight ends. Watson could be a sneaky touchdown this week and a contrarian stack option with Drew Brees.

DFS GEMS: Week 4

RB_Melvin_Gordon_SDC_2

The Chargers have a 28.5 point implied total and shouldn’t need to pass much in the second half meaning plenty of work for Gordon in addition to his usual clip of receptions. The only fear here is that the 49er’s don’t keep pace and Gordon gets rested. That could easily happen here so lets hope Gordon hits pay dirt early to get the day started.

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.

DFS VALUE PLAYS: Week 3

TE_Charles_Clay_BUF_2

We haven’t seen much from Clay this season as he has received just 5 targets on the season. However game theory leads me to believe that this week could be a good week to target Charles Clay.

DFS GEMS: Week 3

QB_Matthew_Stafford_DET_1

I fully expect the Lions to get baptized by the Patriots Sunday night but along the way Stafford should have ample opportunity to put up some decent fantasy points. He comes in at a nice price and is facing an expected positive game flow as 6.5 underdogs to the Patriots this week.

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.
