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

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

Draftkings Lineup Week 2

Had a strong start to the year last week, putting up 200 points as they finally let Russ cook and Davante Adams went off. I return to the well on one of those two. QB Kyler Murray vs. Was $6,100 RB Ezekiel Elliott vs. Atl $8,200 RB Jonathan Taylor vs. Min $5,700 WR Diontae Johnson vs. Den $4,500 WR Julio Jones vs. Dal $7,400 WR Davante Adams vs. Det $8,100 TE Chris Herndon vs. SF $3,400 Flex Paris Campbell vs. Min $4,500 Def Miami vs. Buffalo $2,100 Hoping Kyler has better luck against that Washington defensive line than the Eagles … Continue reading Draftkings Lineup Week 2

DraftKings Lineup Week 1

Only one lineup this week. I have not reloaded my Draftkings lineup yet this year. With sports gambling finally legal in Illinois, my discretionary gambling money is mostly in BetRivers and FanDuel right now. But, I had a little left over in DraftKings, so I will see if I can build that back up before I put any new money in. This is a mostly head-to-head lineup. QB Russell Wilson, SEA 7,000 RB Josh Jacobs, LV 6,800 RB Todd Gurley, ATL 6,100 WR Davante Adams, GB 7,300 WR Marquise Brown, BAL 5,100 WR Desean Jackson, PHI 4,900 TE Jack Doyle, … Continue reading DraftKings Lineup Week 1
