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 8 Review

Targets

49ers at Seahawks
Titans at Bengals
Colts at Lions

Low-owned Game Stack

Jets at Chiefs

The Titans were a huge disappointment, and Ryan Tannehill flopped as my favorite DFS play this weekend. However, each of the other games offered some fantasy goodness. Russell Wilson continued to cook, and DeeJay Dallas provided elite fantasy production in the depleted Seahawks backfield. The Lions didn’t fully uphold their end of the bargain, but the over hit regardless. Perhaps most importantly, the Chiefs-Jets game was an ideal DFS target. As predicted, a Patrick Mahomes double stack brought back with Denzel Mims was a great combination, and the winner of the Draftkings Millionaire Maker played that exact stack.

Fades

Saints at Bears
Patriots at Bills
Vikings at Packers

Both the Saints and Bills games grinded their way to decent fantasy days, hitting the over. Though it is worth noting the Patriots were missing Stephon Gilmore, Stefon Diggs continues to perform as an elite wide receiver, even in tough matchups. The Vikings continue to reduce play volume, but their ability to gain chunk yardage in both the run and pass game is creating quality fantasy environments. Dalvin Cook is clearly healthy and is again an elite running back down the stretch. The Packers remain pass-heavy, but slow-paced, offense. On to week 9.

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…...
