DRAFTKINGS NFL PLAYOFF ADVICE AND VALUE PICKS: CHAMPIONSHIP WEEKEND

As a relatively casual DFS player, I’m much more partial to playing cash games than I am GPP’s for several reasons: 1.) I only play a small number of lineups, 2.) I find it much easier to construct a winning lineup in cash games as opposed to GPP’s, and 3.) I find the chances of taking home substantial money (substantial meaning 2X your original investment) in tournaments to be the opposite of The Hunger Games. The odds are not in my favor. Not that winning in cash games is a walk in the park either, but I’ve had better luck playing one or two lineups in large field 50/50’s or head to heads. That’s personal preference mostly. There is no right or wrong formula to approaching DFS, just make sure you find a strategy that works for you and yields results.

DraftKings NFL Playoff Advice and Value Picks: Wild Card Weekend

Thousands of years ago, the ancient urban philosopher DJ Khaled made history, proclaiming to the masses, “They don’t want you to win!” Khaled felt that haters within the establishment were conspiring in an effort to prevent him from achieving feats of great success, and unfortunately that very same principle can be applied right now in the world of fantasy football. “Wait ‘til next year” they said. “The season is over” they said. Well, they are wrong. There are still three solid weeks to acquire great riches via NFL DraftKings competitions, so if you weren’t fortunate enough to win your standard league, feel free to spend money you don’t have in an effort to win back those dues. For the decorated few, for you champions out there, don’t be afraid to get greedy and attempt to quadruple your already quadrupled league investment.

The Price Is Right: DraftKings Edition, Week 17

I’ve got some bad news, guys. Football season is officially OVER. Unless you’re part of that 10% lucky enough to win your league’s hard earned prize pool or watch your hometown team compete in meaningful January football game, in which case I hate your guts and don’t want you reading my article. For the other 90% of us, all that remains between a long offseason of coaching searches, combines, and insufferable draft Twitter is one final regular season DFS slate. To make matters worse, Week 17 can only be described as DFS purgatory, meaning playoff seeding is going to wreak havoc on your fantasy lineups. With many teams resting their starters, there are only a handful of elite players worth rostering in your lineups this week. Guys like Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson and Devonta Freeman will be uber-chalk and if you want to win back some of that Christmas money you wasted on things like gifts for your loved ones, you’ll have to play those guys. You know it and your opponent knows it, which means finding good value that allows you to pay up for those few high dollar guys is as important now as it has been at any point during the season.

The Price Is Right: DraftKings Edition, Week 16

I’m assuming all of you have missed enough days from work/school to have seen your fair share of “The Price is Right” episodes at 11 am EST on CBS. If you haven’t, then you’ve definitely read enough “The Price is Right: DraftKings Edition” articles on The Fantasy Report dot net to know how the game works. Having said that, we’re going to switch things up this week. Blindly guessing prices a mere 48 hours away from the most wonderful time of the year is a cruelty only Mr. Scrooge and the Grinch would bestow upon their children if it were physically possible for them to mate and produce offspring. So in the spirit of holiday cheer, there will be no guessing, no bidding wars to wage this week. Instead, all picks will be nestled safely under the tree (metaphorically speaking, of course) because much like Mr. Grinch, my heart too grows three times its size on Christmas Day.
