Dollars Per Opportunity: Austin Ekeler Still Matters

Opportunity, opportunity, opportunity — that’s what fantasy football is all about. Each week I utilize our GLSP projections to find the best DFS values from a dollar-per-opportunity perspective with a focus on Yahoo! DFS. There’s no sugar-coating it — last week was a bloodbath as the Seahawks-Cardinals game saw its worst possible outcome, which was the Seahawks getting out to an early lead and grinding it…...

College Football Confident Cash Plays: Week 6

Welcome to another edition of the 2019 Confident Cash Plays Series! Hopefully you loaded up on the high point total WR duos last week! If you did, I’m sure Devonta Smith worked out for you okay with 274 yards and five touchdowns! Let’s see if we can find some other solid plays this week. If you like GPP contests, Ryan Collinsworth has a piece for…...

DK Buffet Week 5: Key Stats for the Main Slate on DraftKings

When I’m looking into the DFS slate each week, I like to go game by game and identify players or situations that intrigue me. In every game, on every team, there’s a situation that’s relevant for DFS purposes, for either a positive or negative reason. These situations can help us figure out how to attack each slate. Arizona Cardinals Spread: +3.5 @ Cincinnati | Total: 47.5…...

Pookaville, Chubahoma: Week 6 DraftKings CFB GPP Breakdown

The title to this breakdown may seem a bit odd, so allow me to briefly explain. “Chubahoma” is a mash-up of Chuba Hubbard (RB, Oklahoma State) and Oklahoma, while also serving as a hat-tip reference to “Chulahoma” by the Black Keys. “Pookaville” refers to a fictional city in the Chubahoma/Oklahoma territory, wherein Kansas RB Pooka Williams is the mayor. The CFB DFS season rolls on with 11 games…...

FanDuel NFL Cash Plays – Week 5

The Fantasy Football Ghost has identified several excellent values for us in his FanDuel cash plays for Week 5! I wish we could celebrate this week with how well we all did in Week 4, but not only was I surprised with how horribly most games turned out, but so, it seems, were large swathes of the football and fantasy world. Case Keenum got benched…...

Week 5 DraftKings Targets: Zeke Is a Must Play

This is an odd main slate for DFS purposes in the sense that every single game’s betting total is under 50 points, meaning there isn’t a game that will create chalk exposures. The fact of the matter is we don’t have the absolutely lucrative games to attack this week the way we have the past couple of weeks, particularly for our cash lineups. What we do have…...

When The Devy Breaks: Master Teague Is Waiting In The Wings In Columbus

Week 4 of college football taught us a few things about teams near the top of the rankings: Alabama’s offense might be the best we’ve ever seen. Ohio State is a bonafide national title contender. Clemson has work to do to meet expectations. There wasn’t plenty of action outside the upper echelon as well: The long hard road finally caught up to USC and BYU…....

The Buying Window on David Montgomery is Open

Off-Season Darling In FFPC startups immediately following the NFL draft, David Montgomery was typically drafted in the fifth round, and sometime fell as far as the late sixth. In rookie drafts he was consistently taken in the early-to-mid first, foreshadowing the enthusiasm that would eventually drive up his ADP in startups. By the end of the summer Montgomery was a staple of the dynasty top…...

High Staked: Down in a Hole

Veteran high stakes fantasy football player Monty Phan chronicles his season. More than a third of the 11-week FFPC Main Event regular season is in the books, and I am depressed. Things have gone poorly. In one Main Event league, we’re 2-2 and third to last in points. We’re also 2-2 in our other league, but in a virtual tie for last in points. In…...

NFL FanDuel Week 5: What The Lineup Optimizer Is Telling Us To Do in GPPs

Large-field GPPs are primarily won in three key areas: 1) player projections, 2) roster construction, and 3) wwnership. Groupthink can run rampant through the fantasy football grapevines and cause DFSers to home in on just one scenario in a player’s possible range of outcomes. What was once a good play in a vacuum can become sub-optimal as chalk. And what may feel thin at first…...

Group of Five Devy Rundown: Week 5

Week 5 was one of my favorites weeks so far this season. It featured unexpectedly close games between conference foes, fan-friendly shootouts, and only a few blowouts. Both of last week’s games of the week turned into high scoring affairs and showcased the potential that can come from the group of five. Quarterback Jack Abraham, QB, Southern Mississippi Jack Abraham took an extended path to…...

Shawn Siegele looks at the best QB streaming options for Week 5, presents a deep superflex option, and offers a sneaky 2-QB trade target. I’m filling in for Giana Pacinelli as she enjoys her vacation. I love the format for her piece and won’t sully it by trying to replicate it here. Instead, I’m going to focus on a couple of my obsessions – the…...

Week 5 Fantasy Football Kicker Streaming

The Process Before I look to Week 4 it is important to observe if the selection process was effective. Here is a recap of last week’s recommendations.

Saquon Who? What Expected Points Are (Not) Telling Us After Week 4

If you spend any time reading RotoViz, eventually you’ll hear us talking about expected points. Expected points (EP) are the number of fantasy points that a target or carry should score based on game situation — down, distance, and field position. In other words, expected points allow us to transform raw opportunity, such as carries and targets, directly into fantasy points. From there we can…...
