NFL Draftkings Week 12

Here is what I’m looking at this week. Just cash for me this week as I got a late start and won’t get a chance to look at low ownership plays. Thanks to value found throughout today, I was able to pay up at QB for Mahomie and at RB with Cook and TE with Kelce. All of those guys will be around 30 percent owned, but it is a rare week you can afford all three and be comfortable elsewhere. Hill and Hines are lower dollar guys getting opportunities with backfield mates out–Gurley in Atlanta and Taylor in Indy. … Continue reading NFL Draftkings Week 12

NFL Draftkings Week 11

Apologies on not getting this up before the noon kickoffs. I got a workout in this morning and am running behind. Here is what I’m looking at this week. Just cash for me this week. I’ll go on record as saying Jameis Winston probably should have gotten the starting nod over Taysom Hill. I don’t think Hill works as a fulltime quarterback. But, if they are rolling with him, I’m gonna bank on him getting enough rushing yards to make is usable as a cheap QB. Cook will be highly owned, Gibson medium-owned in the 5-10% range. Tyler Boyd will … Continue reading NFL Draftkings Week 11

NFL Draftkings Week 10

Here is what I’m looking at this week. Two line-ups once again. On the left is my cash lineup, with GPP on the right. Rolling once again with the rookie QB in both lineups. This is a high-risk, low ownership play as he should be less than five percent owned against a top 10 pass defense from the Dolphins. Mike Davis is almost autoplay at that price with McCaffery out again. And then I’m counting on the Packers and Steelers. I have Jones/Adams in both lineups, as well as Diontay Johnson. Then, in my GPP, I double up on Pittsburgh … Continue reading NFL Draftkings Week 10

NFL Draftkings Week 9

Here is what I’m looking at this week. Two line-ups once again. On the left is my cash lineup, with GPP on the right. Cook might wind up the most owned player in DFS this week and is a cash-game must. I just didn’t have the guts to fade him in GPP either. Darnell Mooney is not quite a full punt play, but is the What The Heck guy this week at $3,900. He has had at least six points in three straight games and at 3.9k, it doesn’t take much to reach value. Darren Waller is the other guy … Continue reading NFL Draftkings Week 9

NFL Draftkings Week 8

Here is what I’m looking at this week. On the left is my GPP lineup, with cash on the right. Let’ start with cash. Derek Carr is looking at a high-wind game, but the Raiders are built around the short-intermediate passing game already, so I don’t see as much of a downtick there as a typical QB would in 30 mph winds. Henry is almost auto-start at this point. Hunt is running it back against Carr in case the wind does prove problematic for Mayfield, and the Raiders are 29th in rush defense DVOA. Adams is a cash-play must at … Continue reading NFL Draftkings Week 8

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

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
