  • The Eagles "Air Raid" Offense and More Air Yards Analysis Through 2 Weeks

    In case you missed it, I wrote an article before week 1 using air yards to evaluate which teams had the most efficient and least efficient offenses from 2016 (hint: The Jets were terrible and the Patriots and Saints were awesome). Using the same method I used for that 2016 article, I decided to look at which teams […]

  • 5 Best Fantasy Matchups for DFS NFL 2017

    It’s hard to evaluate fantasy matchups after only one week of the NFL season. Teams change a lot year to year, so last years data isn’t necessarily predictive of the current season. In this article, I’ll evaluate rosters and defensive statistics to break down the best matchups for Daily Fantasy NFL on FanDuel and DraftKings. […]

  • Don't Sleep on Jeremy Maclin, Breshad Perriman, and Mike Wallace

    Week 1 was one of the strangest week’s of fantasy football I’ve ever witnessed. I was in Boston for DraftKing’s opening week party, and the scene at the sports bar we were sent to watch the games at was both sad and hilarious. The energy was low. DFSers, who had brought their laptops to the […]

  • A Data Driven Look into Offensive Efficiency in the Passing Game

    I was recently considering how to use statistics to determine the overall skill and strategy of offenses in the NFL. As DFS players, we are very good at gauging what kind of opportunity a wide receiver, running back, or tight end will get on a given week through synthesizing through news, snap counts, and other relevant […]

  • NFL DFS: Quick Fantasy Position Outlooks Heading into 2017 – NFC East

    We’re onto the second part of our position outlooks heading into 2017 – the NFC East. Again, these are brief overviews of each fantasy position and what we can expect for 2017 DFS purposes. We’ll touch on battles or developments to watch in preseason, bounceback or regression signs to look for in 2017 and hit up a […]

  • Curveballs are underutilized early in the count

        I got the idea for this article thinking about pitching strategy. It makes sense to me that getting to two-strikes for a pitchers is an important strategy for good performance. With two strikes, pitchers can get a hitter to swing out of the zone and either make bad contact or miss completely, two […]

  • The issues with Expected Outcome wOBA

    There is a lot of luck involved in hitting a baseball. When a player violently swings at a pitch, which sometimes travels over 100 mph, even a small change in where the bat meets the ball could be the difference between a homerun or a pop up. A ball could be hit hard in the […]

  • The Most Important Skill For Pitchers Is Throwing Two Strikes

    There’s a lot of data I look at to evaluate pitchers. Contact rates (the quality of their pitches) and how often they get swings outside of the strike zone are two of the most important factors I use to determine if a pitcher is pitching well or not. How often they throw strikes is another. […]

  • DFS MLB Strategy: Why You Should Fade Top of the Order Changes in GPPs

    A few years ago, when DFS was new and players we’re a lot less knowledgeable, Daily Fantasy Baseball strategy was simple and straightforward. There were easy tricks to find players who’s projections were going to outpace their salary. For example, a right-handed hitter facing a left-handed pitcher? Play the man! A hitter moving from 9th […]

  • Dylan Bundy Is Ready To Fix The Orioles Pitching Problem

    It was announced today that Orioles pitcher Dylan Bundy will start this Sunday on the road against the Rays. The move makes sense, the Orioles need good starting pitching and Bundy could become a good starter. I think Bundy will do very well as a starter, and in this article I’ll talk about why. Just a […]

  • DFS NBA: With Injuries, Be Cautious With Big Men Minutes

    Minutes are a huge part of Daily Fantasy NBA. When players who get a high amount of fantasy points per minute see a large expected minute increase, they tend to be awesome DFS picks. But if there’s one thing I’ve learned from my experience doing DFS NBA, it is that big men don’t always see […]

  • DFS NBA: 5 NBA Stats You Need To Use For Daily Fantasy

    If you are playing Daily Fantasy Basketball and have not yet visited stats.nba.com, you are seriously missing out. Over the past few years, the NBA has started to embrace the analytics movement, opening their own stats and data website with their own advanced metrics. There is a ton of data on the website, much of which […]

  • DFS NBA: Home/Away Splits

    There’s a concept that applies to nearly every major sport that is always a bit helpful in daily fantasy: players play better at home than they do on the road. I always have a slight bias for choosing players at home rather than away for precisely this reason. But how much do Home/Away splits really […]

  • DFS NBA: Best Matchups By Position

    A few weeks ago, I created one of my favorite tools on DFW, NBA Adjusted FP Allowed. The gist of this tool is it takes the difference between actual fantasy points (FP) allowed by position and expected FP allowed by position, which is based on FP per 36 minutes on the season of opposing players. A quick […]

  • Daily Fantasy NBA: Adjusted FP Allowed Per 36

    I wrote an article last week about how looking at fantasy points allowed (or DvP) in DFS NFL is not very effective at determining optimal matchups, mostly because of strength of schedule, luck, and injury impact can skew the results. However, this is likely not the case in the DFS NBA, mostly because we are able to look […]

  • Strokes Gained T2G Regression: Long or Short

    You may have noticed a new tool under the tools tab, PGA Expected T2G Regression. In a similar vein of the SG Putting Regression tool, the T2G Regression tool takes Strokes Gained Tee to Green over the last 2 years, and uses linear regression to predict a player’s SG Tee to Green this year. Then, we […]

  • DFS Golf Expected Putting Regression Tool

    We introduced a new tool this past week for DFS Golf. It’s called the Expected Putting Regression Tool (You can find it under the Fantasy Tools tab) and it’s a great way to decipher which players are running above and below expectation on the season. In tournaments like the DraftKings’ Golf Millionaire Maker’s, this tool should be very useful […]
