Brian Hoyer (QB) – We weren’t sure if Hoyer would be back this week so we got a nice price break on a QB with a great matchup.  Last time he played Jacksonville he put up 24 fantasy points on the Texans.  His DraftKings salary is great at $5,100, but on Fanduel $6,900, he is priced higher than Bradford making that a tempting offer.   His Yahoo price is $31, not much lower than Fitzpatrick and a number of others.

Week 15 Recap: Best Fantasy Player Values

NFL Daily Fantasy

Finding the Best Fantasy Value: Player Cost (Dollar Value) Per Point of Production

DraftKings ScoreFirst of I want to brag a bit and show off one of my lineups this week.  I scored 192.68 points and came in 115th place out of 57,500 entries.  To put things in perspective so you can see how close to winning and moving up from 115th to 10 place, I was 12 points away from 10th place and about 29 points away from taking 1st place!

I have been talking a while about ways to make money playing Daily Fantasy Football on websites like FanDuel and DraftKings, showing you some strategies the pros use to consistently make money and keep their cash flow growing.  One of the topics I spoke about was calculating player value, after all, how do you know if a player is a good value or not other than guessing?  In this example, Im going to use my DraftKings lineup.  All the pricing below is based on the DraftKings pricing model.  FanDuel is generally higher priced, so you know player cost per point will be much higher.

Steelers @ Bengals (47)

Pittsburgh Steelers

Ben Roethlisberger($8200)
His price has gone up so much that its just below the elite QBs in the NFL which makes me want to stay away from Big Ben. The Bengals pass defense has gotten better the last few weeks as well.

LeVeon Bell ($9400)
Bell has been safe bet every week, but his price is pretty high. The Bengals have gotten healthy but they can still be run on. If you can fit him in your lineup start him.  I wont be as I will find a cheaper option.


Cincinnati Bengals

Jeremy Hill ($5400) & Giovani Bernard ($5300)
I’ll be fading these guys tis week, mainly because of the time share, but I’d prefer Hill, if I had to start one.

AJ Green ($8200)
The Steelers secondary has been beatable all year.  Dalton has targeted Green 24 times in the last two weeks and with Dalton being better at home I really like Green this week.

Week 13 Fanduel and Draftkings Strategy Advice: Daily Fantasy Football Player Picks

NFL Daily Fantasy

FanDuelAnother week of Daily Fantasy Football is in the book and now we at week 13 and a great day of Thanksgiving games! Thanksgiving is all about family, food, friends and FOOTBALL!  Nothing brings American families together like watching Football on Thanksgiving Day. Its also the start of the Holiday season with Black Friday shopping and sales going on and of course that brings us to Christmas.

For DFS’ers this is a great holiday.  There are so many Daily Fantasy Games on FanDuel and DraftKings geared soley to the Thursday games.  Think of the entertainment value of that, being really glued to your seat with an extra incentive to watch all the games.  I’ll spend some extra focus on the Thanksgiving games as far as targeting players because its such a special day of games.  Then I’ll cover all of the Sunday Monday games as well..


Every week I analyze the upcoming games here and not only do I try to give some advice to win at your FanDuel and DraftKings games, but to look  back on the previous week’s results and learn from my loses so I can see what worked and what didn’t to help improve going forward.. My week 12 was a mixed bag as far as my results. I had another solid week on Fanduel but took a loss on Draftkings. You can’t win every week in Daily Fantasy. You just need to manage your cash flow so that you can be profitable by seasons end.  Maximizing your gains on the good weeks while minimizing your losses on down weeks. By using the proper mix of contest like, 50/50, HTH, Small GPP and Large GPP’s is the key to maintaining your cash flow.

DraftKings is running a promotion this week called the Thanksgiving Wishbone Tournament and they are giving a $20 voucher to enter this week.  If you don’t already have DraftKings account, you can register for you can sign up below.
You have a chance at a $100,000 first place prize!


Since the slate this week is broken up in to two separate groupings I’m going to switch things up and deal with them separately. Keep in mind that a 3 game slate needs to be treated very differently when considering GPP versus HTH. For those playing Thursday GPP’s there is no move too obscure or risky. There simply aren’t that many viable players to choose from. Winners will generally find a player or two that you would normally never consider and have them go off for them. These contests HEAVILY favor newer player for obvious reasons.


11/27 12:30 ET At Detroit -7 Chicago 47


At first glance, this game looks like it will be a blow out and Vegas sees this as fairly high scoring  game. Chicago’s defense has been very poor (Packers tore them up twice).  How in the world are they going to stop Megatron?  He should be in a number of your Thursday lineups. Megatron is priced fairly low on Draftkings this week which is an extra bonus.  I also like Golden Tate and Joique Bell this week. With all the attention Megatron is going to get, Tate should be able to run free catching a ton underneath. As for Chicago, Im not feeling anyone other than Forte and if the price is to high I’ll probably fade him too this week.. Loins Defense is in play this week too!

DRAFTKINGS Player Advice and Cheat Sheet


I did game by game breakdowns in my FanDuel Strategy Advice column, so I’m going to just highlight the players to target, their DraftKings price and my thoughts and strategy on which players you should target for your DraftKings Lineup.


Cleveland Browns @ Atlanta Falcons (o/u 47)

Cleveland Browns

Josh Gordon ($6300)
Everyone has Gordon fever, so I expect him to be VERY highly owned. Gordon has an amazing matchup going against the Falcons, who’ve allowed 4 TDs in the last five games to WR1s.

Andrew Hawkins ($4900)
Hawkins is the player who’s value could be effected most by the return of Josh Gordon. I don’t think the Browns throw enough for both guys to really produce, but who knows, maybe they will throw the ball now with Gordon back.  I still think he could do well with softer coverage with Gordon back.

Brian Hoyer ($5900)
Hoyer is a very interesting play this week between Gordon coming back and his price tag. He has a great matchup against a poor Atlanta defense.   I’m Stacking Hoyer and Gordon in at least one lineup this week.

Isaiah Crowell ($3800)
With the release of Ben Tate and Crowell being named the starter last week, Crowell becomes an interesting play this week for the price. Atlanta is 24th against the run and I should get the majority of the carries.

Week 12 Fanduel and Draftkings Strategy Advice: Daily Fantasy Football Player Picks

NFL Daily Fantasy

Week 12 of this Daily Fantasy Football season is here. Another week to try to better our strategies and see who performed and which matchups paid off for us.  That’s the beauty of DFS, it gives us weekly fantasy football opportunities. Ive used this site to provide you with the tools and techniques I’ve used not only in fantasy football and successful survivor picking, but to show you how to be profitable playing DFS


Its important to factor is to always keep an open mind and be open to new ideas even if it goes against contemporary thinking, after all the contrarian play tends to pay off in daily fantasy football as it does in the stock marketing. I make sure to look back on the previous week’s results and whenever possible, adjust my strategy and techniques in an effort to maximize returns whenever possible and see what ideas of mine worked and which did not.  Learning how to make your money last by playing cash games as well as GPP contests has gone a long way to keeping a nice bank roll going.


Looking back to week 11, I had a great FanDuel week, winning almost all of my matches with the exception a a few GPP contests with 57,500 people in it.


Now on to the week 12 match-ups.

Week 12 Game Breakdowns

Thursday Night

KC @ OAK (42.5) Here is another Thursday night game that doesn’t really interest me. Other than Jamal Charles being a great play against the Raiders poor run defense, I may also consider the Kansas City defense for the right price.. If we get word that the Raiders will use Latavius Murray this week, he would be a sneaky play this week.


Sunday Games

CLE @ ATL (47)  All the talk this week is about the return of Josh Gordon.  Im sure everyone will have him in their lineups this week, especially since Atlanta’s defense has been terrible. As far as running backs, Cleveland got us last week by switching between West and Crowell. Atlanta is easy to run on, so  I’d consider going with whoever is named the starter this week. Cleveland Defense had some more injuries again this week and they have not bee great against number tow receivers, so that puts the Atlanta Offense is in play once again. Ryan, Jones and White (good number two WR) are all good starts. The Ryan to Jones stack has not been working very well, so I may go with the Ryan to White stack as a contrarian play in GPP’s.

Week 11 Fanduel and Draftkings Strategy: Daily Fantasy Football Player Picks

NFL Daily Fantasy

Last week was a tough one, somehow I did really well on FanDuel with my lineups, but ending up not doing as well on DraftKings.  Between injuries to Ronnie Hillman and my Steelers guys (Rothlesberger and Brown) a few of my lineups didn’t perform as well.  I had a feeling they wouldn’t do well, so good thing I only put them in one lineup.  I had one lineup with Sanchez, Matthew, and Olsen, but lost some games to players that loaded up on Eagles vs Panthers game players such as Benjamin, Olsen, Sanchez, Matthew, and Celek

Most of my picks and calls were good from last week such as pairing up Rodgers and Nelson who torched the Chicago defense.  It appear that Rodgers and Nelson are the best stack so far this season..  They look pretty strong for the rest of this season.


Once again I’m fading the Thursday games and its paid off once again. In DFS games its important to maximize any advantage possible such as finding guys people are overlooking and exploiting statistical anomalies. This week players like Green, Hill, Sanu and even Dalton were over-drafted  because of their past performance and as a result scoring for the Thursday GPP’s was down significantly.

Week 8 Game By Game Break Down

Thursday Night Game

– Last year these two teams split, but if the Chargers want to win this one up in Denver, they are going to have to run the ball effectively to keep Peyton off the field. Now with Denver’s improved defense that may be a little harder to do.. The Broncos are a big favorite with a high O/U.  Starting options are Peyton, Sanders, The Thomas brother’s (D & JThomas) and Ronnie Hillman for this game. For the Chargers Allen, Oliver, Gates, Floyd, and maybe, maybe Royal.
