Daily Fantasy Football First Impressions: Week 1 – DraftKings Pricing

Daily fantasy football is my all time favorite among the daily fantasy sports. We’re a little over 40 days until NFL kickoff. DraftKings has answered our prayers and released their salaries for Week 1. Along with a tournament that leaves a crisp $2 million to first place and $1 million to the runner up. We’ve still got some time to go before kickoff and a lot can change, but I am going to give my initial impressions of some price points, because why not? If you missed my first impressions of FanDuel pricing, you can find it here. I suppose

The Lowdown: Roddy White’s Injury and Kevin White on the PUP List

Roddy White From Rotoworld.com: Roddy White had his knee drained prior to June minicamp and expects the knee to be drained again during the 2015 season. Knee drainings are generally routine, non-surgical procedures, but may be concerning for White coming off back-to-back injury-plagued seasons. White actually hinted doctors told him to have surgery, but he is going to play through the knee “irritation” instead. “It’s not a concern to me because it’s just like a little irritation,” said White. “My cartilage in my knee is not smooth. It’s kind of rippled. You can elect to have surgery, but I just

The Lowdown: Markus Wheaton Adjusting to the Slot and the Texans QB situation

Markus Wheaton From TribeLive.com: “I’ve worked on everything during training camp because I want to be a complete receiver,” he said. “I’m not just a slot receiver. “I don’t think we need to change much, but there are things we need to correct. There are little things I have to correct. As the young guys grow, including me, this offense will grow.” “We believe our offense will be even more explosive with a healthy and more confident Markus Wheaton,” Mann said. “He’s worked hard on improving his game in every area, so he’s expecting a lot himself.” Markus Wheaton was

The Lowdown: Second Chance for Sammy Watkins and Lamar Miller to get More Carries?

Lamar Miller From ESPN.com: “I would tell you I’ve never been in a meeting where I’ve said to [offensive coordinator] Bill [Lazor] or [running backs coach] Jeff Nixon or the offensive line coaches have said ‘Lamar can’t carry the ball 20 times a game. He can’t do it,’” Philbin said. “I’ve never heard that. That’s never come out of my mouth.” “I would tell you, if he’s cranking and he got it 24 times a game and he’s healthy and he’s fast and he’s explosive, it doesn’t bother me one bit,” Philbin said. “But I think sometimes it’s not taken

The Lowdown: Seattle’s Tight End Depth and the Lions Need More From Their TEs

Detroit Tight Ends From MichiganLive.com: “There wasn’t a more disappointing position group last season than the tight ends. Despite having two first-round picks and a proven red-zone threat, the trio of Eric Ebron, Brandon Pettigrew and Joseph Fauria combined for just 41 catches, 389 yards and two touchdowns. Injuries are partially to blame. The trio missed a combined 14 games, with a non-football ankle injury to Fauria being the biggest blow.” Justin Rogers was spot on with how disappointing the Lions tight ends were. Not a single one of them had any sort of efficiency. Brandon Pettigrew was used primarily

The Lowdown: Sam Bradford’s Injury and Questioning Carson Palmer

Sam Bradford From NJ.com: “If I’m not ready for 11 on 11 by training camp, then something has gone horribly wrong,” Bradford said. “That’s the plan right now. We’re going to keep plugging away and be ready when camp starts.” In his five year career, Sam Bradford has managed to play all 16 games just twice. I don’t think Bradford would even be on most fantasy drafters radar, if it wasn’t one for one thing. He’s in Chip Kelly’s system and that’s what makes him appealing. We’ve seen Mark Sanchez and Nick Foles be successful under Kelly’s play calling, so

The Lowdown: Projecting Nick Foles and Can Andy Dalton Improve?

Nick Foles From ESPN.com; Rams reporter Nick Wagner was asked to project Nick Foles: That’s a tough question to answer at this point because we still need to see how he fits and how well he grasps the new offense. By Foles’ own admission, this offense is much different from what he had in Philadelphia. That’s not a surprise but it means it will take some time to learn. It would be foolish to expect him to repeat the 27-touchdown, two-interception performance of 2013. But he will also need to be better than the 13-touchdown, 10-interception version from last year. Considering

Daily Fantasy Sports First Impressions: FanDuel Week 1 Pricing

It’s late July and FanDuel has already released their pricing for Week 1. So here I am trying to delve into these prices already. I’m not going to go too in depth on these, but just wanted to rattle off my thoughts. A lot can change between now and then, between injuries and roster changes, but these are my first impressions of their pricing. I suppose this is a good time to mention that my Joe 2 Pro series will be returning for it’s second year. Here is my first article on how to enter daily fantasy sports without drowning

The Lowdown: Washington Running Game and the Cowboys’ Backfield

Washington Running Game From RealRedskins.com: “Who will carry the ball? Gruden has assured us on multiple occasions that Alfred Morris is still the workhorse running back so until I see something different I’ll believe him. Morris carried 265 times last year so let’s say stays right around in that area. Rookie Matt Jones should get the 40 carries that the departed Roy Helu had last year and then some, perhaps 100 total. The wild card is quarterback rushing attempts. We’re not going to see a return to 2012 when Robert Griffin III ran the ball 120 times. But if Griffin

The Lowdown: Saints to use TE by Committee? Titans Expect More From Bishop Sankey

Bishop Sankey From TheTennessean.com: “He was the first running back chosen in the 2014 draft and the 54th overall selection, but Sankey did not explode onto the scene for the Titans last year. He averaged 3.7 yards on his 152 carries and his longest run was for just 22 yards. Sankey contributed a bit in the passing game with 18 catches for 133 yards, but again, not as much as the Titans envisioned. Sankey missed OTAs because of school commitments and never quite seemed to catch up. Sankey is the odds-on favorite to be the starter when the season gets
