  • Early Daily Fantasy Thoughts For Each NBA Team and Comparing to Last Year's Rosters

    Every NBA team has its own agenda in the beginning of the season. Some teams look nearly the same as last year, some are trying to figure out what works and some are just trying to get through injuries. Let’s break it down.   Atlanta Hawks – Al Horford is back, which is huge for […]

  • Daily Fantasy NBA Top Plays 10/30

    It’s only a few days into the NBA season so we have to speculate a lot on trends and predictions without a lot of hard data. But with so much murkiness, there should be a lot of edge to be had over the field. Here are my top plays for today. Lebron James (10500 DK, […]

  • Target Watch Week 8

    There were several absolutely astounding performances in week 8, but lost in the craziness were solid performances by WRs we don’t want to forget for next week’s slate. WR targets are a great way to analyze whether a receiver may be a good play in the future, because it shows how many opportunities a receiver will […]

  • NFL Playing Time Watch

    Looking at Week 8 snap counts to find value for NFL Week 9. Steven Jackson had a season high 50% of snaps, having a solid fantasy day with 60 yards and a TD. The snap increase is kind of surprising but sensible since the Falcons were up on the Lions most of the game, but […]

  • Previous Divisional Matchups NFL Week 8

We also have Houston and Tennessee, as well as a probable low scoring affair between the Jets and the Bills, and lastly the Ravens at the Bengals. Redskins at Cowboys Game 1 Game 2 Not a lot to […]

  • Daily Fantasy Football Week 8 DSTs Flying Under the Radar

    It’s amazing how much a DST can score in a week randomly. In GPP formats, it can be a huge killer in your chances at winning big money if you don’t have that unit in your lineup. Here, I’m going to give you the DSTs you want to include when making several lineups.   Obvious, […]

  • Daily Fantasy Baseball: Predicting Stolen Bases

    On DraftKings and FanDuel, stolen bases are incredibly highly valued in their scoring systems, worth 5 and 2 points respectively, each as valuable as a double. Most baseball players steal bases a negligible amount, so there’s not much reason to care. But for some hitters like Dee Gordon and Billy Hamilton, who steal over 50 […]

  • DraftKings and FanDuel MLB Match-up Breakdown 8/12

    Tonight has a huge slate of games, with a lot of great match-ups for hitters. My strategy for evaluating match-ups is a combination of our pitcher handedness splits, player projections (which you can find under the tools tab), and GB/FB ratios. I’m not going to go through every pitcher, just the juiciest.   Yohan Flande (opponent – […]

  • Daily Fantasy Baseball: Using "Platoon Splits" To Help You Win

    If you look at most daily fantasy baseball players talk about their reasons for picking one player or another, you will see a lot of “This pitcher is terrible against lefties” or “This guy has crushed righties over his career!” What they are talking about is a phenomenon I will refer to as platoon splits, which […]

  • Daily Fantasy MLB Targets for Fanduel 8/6

    The NBA season starts today, which will begin a 6 month period of daily fantasy NBA games nearly every day.

  • Wyndham Championship Breakdown and Picks on DraftKings

    Before we get into the heat of the FedEx Cup playoffs, the Wyndham Championship gives us one more look at a weaker field. It’s no surprise that most of the biggest stars won’t be participating, since they would like a break before the home stretch that concludes with the Ryder Cup. However, there are still […]

  • How I won over $10,000 Playing Fantasy Golf on DraftKings

    A month ago, I made one of the biggest scores of my gambling life in the British Open big $20 buy in tournament and the mini $2 buy in tournament on DraftKings (for prizes of $10,000 and $1,500 respectively) as a total amateur bettor. I’m certainly not as smart as my brothers–the founders of this site–when […]

  • PGA Championship Analysis and Picks

    The final major of the year has arrived – the PGA Championship. Usually the PGA Championship is considered the least hyped, however, Valhalla promises to bring fantastic excitement and drama. Not only was Valhalla the site of the 2008 Ryder Cup when USA last defeated Europe, the details of this course will excite DFS players. […]

  • WGC Bridgestone Invitational Picks and Analysis

    It’s an incredibly stacked field at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational. What’s tough is that there are no big steals on DraftKings for the event. Yes, some are certainly better than others, but nothing like we are accustomed to finding when comparing prices versus Vegas odds. Consequently, with the exception of a few of the top […]

  • RBC Canadian Open Daily Fantasy Breakdown

    The RBC Canadian Open kicks off Thursday in the first PGA tournament since the Open Championship. As expected, since most players are experiencing jet lag, this is a relatively weak field. We have a few of the big-name golfers, but there’s a pretty big fall off early on. Nevertheless, without NFL and NBA in the mix, […]

TBD

Don\'t be discouraged about Blake Griffin\'s average performance in his first game. He had a team-high 23 points in 38 minutes. The problem? OKC played at a slow pace with Westbrook going down and with a depleted roster. OKC also had a big lineup and dominated the boards. That definitely won\'t happen against the Lakers and a terrible frontcourt defense. The O/U is 212 and the Clippers are -12. Griffin has 50 FPTS potential.

TBD

With Stefan Taylor out, Ellington should get some goal-line action and he has a dream match-up vs a Dallas team that may be without Tony Romo. He's under-priced on both DraftKings and FanDuel.
