Welcome to the game environment series. This series will provide several weekly games to target and fade, based on macro-level factors that impact fantasy production. For more on these factors, click here. We recommend using this in conjunction with our micro-level analysis, including the buy low report, the strength in numbers series, our quarterback, kicker, tight end, and defense streaming articles, and the slate of DFS analysis we provide.

Week 9 Review

Targets

  • Seahawks at Bills
  • Lions at Vikings
  • Texans at Jaguars

Low-owned Game Stack

  • Broncos at Falcons

Josh Allen and the Bills put on a fireworks display, eschewing the run game and throwing as much as possible. The Bills’ defense generated a few turnovers, but Russell Wilson continued his onslaught of fantasy points. Dalvin Cook was a cash game lock, and for good reason, as he again generated an elite performance. The Lions’ side was mildly disappointing, as each of their players failed to hit ceiling outcomes despite the shootout. The Texans and Jaguars traded long touchdowns, exceeding the projected average pace, and generating fantasy goodness. Drew Lock and Jerry Jeudy were in the winning DraftKings Millionaire Maker lineup at a combined 21% ownership. Though it cashed in a few tournaments, I was unfortunately on the Matt Ryan side of the low-owned game stack. However, that’s two weeks in a row it has included a quarterback in the winning Millionaire Maker lineup.

Fades

  • Ravens at Colts
  • Panthers at Chiefs
  • Steelers at Cowboys

The Ravens-Colts matchup was the slow-paced game we expected, limiting fantasy production. The Steelers and Cowboys played a much more competitive game than expected, allowing Ben Roethlisberger to stay aggressive and hit a ceiling performance. The Panthers and Chiefs game overcame pace concerns with aggressive fourth down playcalling and high passing volume. On to week 10.

Is Bully Tight End Viable in Best Ball Mania 3?

As a former tight end, I’ve always had an affinity for using two elite tight ends. In Madden, I’m notorious among my friends for getting two elite ones, like George Kittle and Kyle Pitts, and using their combination of receiving and blocking ability to lock the defense into one personnel and smash them in a hurry-up offense. In short, I’m a full-on tight end nerd…....

FFPC Never Too Early Tournament – Zero RB out of the 1.05

This is the second of a three-part series analyzing my entries into the FFPC Never-Too-Early best ball tournament. This time, I drafted out of the 1.05. The NTE just filled, but many of the principles and decisions will remain when the FFPC releases its next tournament, likely shortly after the NFL draft. 1.05 – The options: Cooper Kupp, Justin Jefferson, or Ja’marr Chase The debate:…...

FFPC Never Too Early Tournament – Bully Tight End Out of the 1.01

Hello again RotoViz subscribers. It’s been a year since you last heard from me, when I decided to crown Daniel Jones and Kenny Golladay the Stefon Diggs and Josh Allen of 2021. Well … after that, I was forced to serve a (self-imposed) one-year suspension, but I’m back now and will stick to touting #good players in 2022. That starts today. Below is the first…...
