DraftKings Lineup Week 6

Here is what I’m playing this week. The highest predicted team score of the week is the Minnesota Vikings, with 28.5, against Atlanta. I’m skipping over Kirk Cousins this week, however, and going with three lineups with three quarterbacks from that next tier down in Vegas totals, two from the same game. Cash Game Lineup QB Ryan Tannehill vs. Texans $5,900 RB Derrick Henry vs. Texans $7,300 RB Alexander Mattison vs. Falcons $7,200 WR Adam Thielen vs. Falcons $7,300 WR Terry McLaurin vs. Giants $5,700 WR AJ Brown vs. Texans $5,600 TE Irv Smith Jr. vs. Falcons $2,500 FLEX Jonathon … Continue reading DraftKings Lineup Week 6

DraftKings Lineup Week 5

Here is what I’m playing this week. Reminder, I play mostly cash games. There are three games with a Vegas total of 54 or higher this week, so much of this week’s success is going to be picking the correct one of those three to stack in all likelihood. QB Patrick Mahomes vs. Raiders $7,700 RB Josh Jacobs vs. Chiefs $6,300 RB David Johnson vs. Jaguars $5,200 WR Tyreek Hill vs. Raiders $6,900 WR Darius Slayton vs. Cowboys $4,800 WR Brandin Cooks vs. Jaguars $4,100 TE Darren Waller vs. Raiders $5,900 FLEX Kareem Hunt vs. Colts $6,500 DEF Texans vs. … Continue reading DraftKings Lineup Week 5

NFL Draft Kings Week 4

Here is what I’m playing this week. Again, I play mostly cash lineups. Adjust accordingly if you are playing GPP. A fair amount of chalk here with Kamara and Metcalf. Fitzpatrick will probably be more of a GPP play, so playing him in cash might be a little bit of a differentiation. Kamara is still the best RB in football, although I do expect Dallas to force the ball to Zeke for narrative reasons. I decided to go with OBJ in that game. He has been just disappointing enough to start the year it feels like he is due for … Continue reading NFL Draft Kings Week 4

My Favorite A’s

With the passing of Bob Gibson, Will Leitch, most famous for being from Mattoon, put together his list of his all-time favorite St. Louis Cardinals. He had Gibson at number one. Not a surprise for men of my age or slightly older. Surprisingly, Rick Ankiel was number two on his list. He admitted it was Gibson and then no one was close for number two. Seeing the list, however, got me thinking about my favorite Oakland Athletics. My list is similar. It is Rickey Henderson and then every one else. Still. Putting in as little thought as possible, here is … Continue reading My Favorite A’s

NFL Draftkings Week 3

After the carnage of week 2 with injuries, we are back for yet more punishment and misery. But, seeing two of the first three picks in season-longs go down on the same day is a reminder of why I play more DFS than season long at this point. Two lineups this week, mostly cash-game based as I like a lot of the chalk this week. Lineup 1 QB–Russell Wilson vs. Cowboys, $7,300RB–Miles Sanders vs. Bengals, $6,400RB–Devin Singletary vs. Rams, $4,900WR–Deandre Hopkins vs. Lions, $7,900WR–Amari Cooper vs. Seahawks, $6,500WR–KJ Hamler vs. Bucs, $3,000TE–Jordan Reed vs. Giants, $4,000Flex–Jonathan Taylor vs. Jets, $7,000Def–Giants … Continue reading NFL Draftkings Week 3
