DraftKings Week 3 NFL Line Up advice

Week 3 DraftKings Line Up Suggestions and Stacking advice.

Welcome to Week 3 on DraftKings….

Note: Updated September 21, 2016

Now that we have a week of NFL fantasy under our belts, we can maybe see a couple of trends developing? We haven’t seen everything, but we can sorta notice (we’re still mostly guessing at this point) how some things are developing.

Vegas has set some very low scoring overs for week 3, they seem to think scoring will be low this week with many notable defensive games. In fact there are 8 games projected to have total scoring of 44 points or less.

Week 3 Game Lines:

Higher Scoring Games: ATL at NO -3 (54), SD at IND -3 (52), DET at GB -7.5 (48), WAS at NYG -4.5 (46), OAK at TEN -1.5 (47)

Low Scoring Games: CLE at MIA -9.5 (41.5), MIN at CAR -7 (43), SF at SEA -9.5 (40), DEN at CIN -3 (41)

A few thoughts about the Week Three players and match-ups:

Week 2 saw a lot of anticipated fantasy scoring fail to materialize. Who knew that Saints and Giants could actually play some defense? Who knew the rain/wet conditions in Pittsburgh would affect the aerial attacks of the Steelers and Bengals to the extent it did?  Those 2 games alone severely hampered and disappointed many fantasy players.

Injuries also dotted the NFL landscape with several notable players going down in week 2.

Running back’s took the brunt of the mayhem with A Peterson MIN, A Foster MIA, D Martin TB, A Abdulah DET, J Stewart CAR and D Whitehead SD leading the list.

Injured Wide Receivers: D Moncrief IND and D Baldwin SEA.

Injured Quarterbacks: J Cutler CHI and J McCown CLE.

The Atlanta at New Orleans should be the game fantasy players key in on Monday Night. Make sure you have exposure in this one. Brees, Cooks, Snead, Ryan, Julio and Freeman all should be considered.

I’m also liking the Miami offense this week, namely R Tannehill QB, J Landry WR, D Parker WR and J Ajayi RB (monitor A Fosters status) all having a good days against the Cleveland Defense.

Start the MIA DEF against the Browns.

Matt Forte NYJ RB looks like he is 25 again, ride him again this week. Q Enunwa NYJ WR is also an interesting play, most defenses pay so much attention to B Marshall and E Decker he is often forgotten in coverage.

The SD at IND should also have a few nice fantasy plays. Play P Rivers SD QB and stack him with T Benjamin SD WR. A Gates SD TE should see even more targets with D Woodhead RB now on IR.

P Dorsett IND WR and D Allen IND TE will also be seeing more targets from A Luck IND QB with D Moncrief IND WR status still unknown at this time.

OAK at TEN should also be another battle of porous Defenses, make sure you get D Carr OAK QB, A Cooper OAK WR, L Murray OAK RB, M Mariota TEN QB, D Murray TEN RB, T Sharpe TEN WR and D Walker TEN TE added to your lineups wherever possible.

The Sunday night game features CHI at DAL. Chicago looked worse than Cleveland on Monday night. Start the DAL DEF (no J Cutler for CHI and B Hoyer is starting?) and this could be finally be the week that D Prescott and D Bryant finally hook up for a couple of long scores. E Elliott should have a excellent rushing game in the 2nd half with a big lead.

D Washington DET RB will be starting in  A Abdulahs place.

F Whittaker CAR RB will start in J Stewarts place.

DraftKings Week 2 NFL Line Up advice

Week 2 DraftKings Line Up Suggestions and Stacking advice.

Welcome to Week 2 on DraftKings….

Note: I’ll be updating this post as more information becomes available

Now that we have a week of NFL fantasy under our belts, we can maybe see a couple of trends developing? We haven’t seen everything, but we can sorta notice (we’re still mostly guessing at this point) how some things are developing.

Vegas has set some very high scoring overs for week 2, they seem to think scoring will be up in 2016, so I am looking at some very high scores for us fantasy guys this week.

Week 2 Game Lines:

Higher Scoring Games: TEN at DET -5.5 (47), CIN at PIT -5 (47.5), NO at NYG -5 (52.5), TAM at ARI -6.5 (50), SF at CAR -14 (48.5), ATL at OAK-4.5 (48)

Low Scoring Games: PHI at CHI -3 (42.5), MIA at NE -6.5 (41.5)

A few thoughts about the Week Two players and match-ups:

I benefited greatly using D Williams PIT RB and A Brown PIT WR on Monday Night on week one, I’m going to ride the Steelers offensive studs until further notice. AJ Green CIN WR excelled in week one, expect him to see numerous opportunities in a high scoring game with the Steelers this week.

Until further notice start whatever defensive team is playing the LA Rams, this week it’s the Seattle Seahawks.

SF is at CAR this week, The 49er DEF held the LA Rams to 0 points. The Panthers are not the Rams. I’m looking at C Newton QB,  K Benjamin WR, G Olsen TE, T Ginn WR and J Stewart RB all as very playable this week at home.

S Ware RB KC had a great week one against the Chargers, He’s up against a better HOU DEF this week and we still don’t know if J Charles will be available. Start Ware, but don’t expect a 30 point game.

JAX is visiting SD this week, I’m liking the Jaguars to rebound from their week one loss to GB in a big way. B Bortles JAX QB, A Robinson JAX WR and A Hurns JAX WR should put up bigger numbers against he Chargers DEF this week. K Allen SD WR was put on the IR with a knee after week one, this makes T Benjamin SD WR, T Williams SD WR and A Gates SD TE more viable targets for P Rivers SD QB to throw to.

Arizona lost to NE on Sunday night, look for the Cardinals to take out some revenge against TB this week. Make sure you get D Johnson ARI RB, L Fitzgerald ARI WR and M Floyd ARI WR in your line ups,  I can see J Winston TB QB throwing an awful lot to play catch up with M Evans TB WR being the big target for Winston.

T Sharpe TEN WR didn’t disappoint in week one, look for him to continue to prosper this week against DET.

D Prescott DAL QB had an okay ( 10.3 fp’s) first start for the Cowboys, his price increased to 5800 on week 2, which is still a great value for the starting QB on a good offensive team in what should be a high scoring game against Washington.

DraftKings Week One NFL Line Up advice

Week One DraftKings Line Up Suggestions and Stacking advice.

Welcome to Week One on DraftKings….

Updated: September 7, 2016

Now that the NFL preseason is coming to an end, it’s time to start your in-depth line up research and begin setting those week one line ups. Here are the Always Rules that I use to help me in my line up decision making process.

Week One in the NFL is usually one of the hardest weeks to handicap for fantasy purposes, no one really knows how good any real team will be (offensively or defensively), no one knows the exact plans or strategies the coaching staffs will use and it will take us fantasy players a couple of weeks of regular season game action to actually know what is what, who is who and until then, it’s just a guessing game.

Vegas has set some very high scoring overs for week one, they seem to think scoring will be up in 2016, so I am looking at some very high scores for us fantasy guys this week.

A few thoughts about the Week One match-ups:

I’m looking at the Colts taking some liberties with the Lion defense this week, so Andrew Luck combined with his talented receiving corps should put up big points.

In this game I’m also thinking that M Jones Jr. DET WR will continue to stand out as M Staffords deep guy (without Megatron this year), he has so far in camp and he has been turning heads around the league.

I really like the Stacks of B Bortles/ A Robinson JAX and Cousins/Reed WAS (Monday Night) to continue their excellent play as shown last year.

It looks like J Charles KC RB will not play in week one, this makes S Ware KC RB 4400 a must start in your line ups.

Dak Prescott DAL QB 5000 has been named starter to replace T Romo DAL QB who is expected to miss 6 to 10 weeks. Prescott has been outstanding in preseason and seems very comfortable leading the Cowboys. Although he is untested, he could easily put up 18 to 20 fantasy points this week and would be an extremely valuable play until his price increases in weeks 2 and 3.

C Ivory JAX RB should find plenty of running room for the Jaguars this year, courtesy of the deep threats of JAX WR’s Robinson and Hurns.

OAK at NO could also provide some fireworks on both sides, I think the younger Raider offense can put up some big points against the weaker Saints Defense this week.

You should also consider using L Blount NE RB, He will be “the guy” with D Lewis NE RB out in week one and beyond? No one really knows if J Garoppolo NE QB will be up to the task while he starts during Tom Bradys 4 game suspension. You would think there would be more touches for Blount, but who really knows what Coach Belichick is thinking. Blount has a great history of Goal Line touches and scores, this could be his opportunity to really shine. Also, without Tom Brady, I’d lower my expectations for any NE receivers, including Gronk until further notice.

As soon as the Monday night contests are posted on DraftKings, lean on Big Ben, Antonio Brown and D Williams as stack options. K Cousins WAS QB and J Reed WAS TE also make a nice QB/TE stack on Monday night.

OAK at NO-1 (50.5), GB -4.5 at JAX (47), NYG at DAL -3.5 (49.5), DET at IND -5 (49), NE at ARI -5.5 (Sunday night) (48), PIT -3 at WAS (Monday night) (50.5).

Top defensive games: MIN -3 at TEN (42) and SD at KC -7 (43)

Saturday, March 12 Fan Duel NBA Line Up Suggestion

I made one of the biggest mistakes a daily fantasy player could make yesterday on my NBA line up. I set a line up that I was happy with and then started reading some “expert” pick advice and changed my mind.  NEVER allow yourself to change your initial thoughts on your line up decisions (unless there is an injury involved). If you read something you think will work, make a new line up using that information, but always keep your original line up intact.

I ended up setting my line ups on the fly yesterday and produced one small pay-out.

Friday Win

My mistake was switching out L. Stephenson MEM SG who scored 52.4 points for E Moore CHI SG who scored 15.9 points. I had Stephenson in my original line up but switched him when D Rose was ruled out for CHI. That cost me a win on my 10 team contest and my Main Slate $10K tournament.

I had 2 lineups scoring over 317 points, which is a good night. But scoring was really high last night and you would have needed 350+points for a semi-decent win on almost every contest.

The Main Slate $10K was won with a 399.6 point score and 1st place took home $750 for that score.

I’m just going with the Main Slate contests tonight, I couldn’t come up with a line up I liked on the Late night or After Hours contests.

There are no Express Contests tonight on Fan Duel.

Saturday, March 12th Main Slate tournament line up

Saturday Main Slate Line Up

The Daily $250 NBA free roll starts at 7PM on Fan Duel tonight.

Thursday, March 10th Fan Duel Line Up Suggestions

The last few days I have been just awful with my line up combinations on Fan Duel.

I’ve had a few scores within reach of at least a cash out, but nothing really exciting to speak of.

I play mainly the larger GPP tournaments and maybe I could have caught a few wins on a few of the smaller 10 team leagues, double ups or 50/50’s.

Being a tournament player, I like the excitement for the potential for a big winner on my line ups, that’s why I stick to the larger GPP’s.

You just have to live with the cold spells when they occur during your tournament play.

Tonight we have a 4 game NBA slate on Fan Duel starting at 7:30PM

My main tournament plays tonight are on the $1-$20K Dribble (single entry), the $1-$75K NBA Swat and the $1-$10K Baby Swat with these two line-ups:

Monday, March 7th Fan Duel NBA Line Up suggestions

Line Ups Updated 3:30PM & 6PM

First off, you had to know that Golden State would lose to a lessor team eventually, but the Lakers???????

Wow, who saw that coming? I figured a easy GSW win with the starters sitting out the 4th quarter.

Well that just shows you, sometimes the best match up in fantasy, just isn’t all it’s cut out to be………..

Luckily, I stayed pretty much away from that game (except for K Thompson and  a couple of Lakers)  and concentrated on the rest of the Sunday NBA schedule.

My efforts seemed to work, I ended up Sunday ahead of the game.

Still, I had 3 line ups that scored over 352 points but still only hit some small payouts. I doubled my buy-ins, so I do consider that a success.

The $1/$20K Dribbler was won with a 433.7 score (a $2000 win), which was 80 points over what my line ups produced……

I cashed on the Sunday Dribblers, here are my results:

Sunday Dribber Wins

Don’t ask me what happened on the daily $250 free roll, do you think the free roll winner (433.5 points) played a real money contest? I hope he did!!!!!!!!

My Express Line up did what I always hope to to do, at least hit a minimum win.

My Sunday NBA Express result:

Sunday Express win

There are 7 games scheduled tonight in the NBA, including ORL at GSW in which the Warriors should be looking to make every one forget what the Lakers did to them on Sunday.

My Main Slate Monday, March 7th Line Ups will be on the $1-$100K Swat, the $1-$25K Dribbler and the $1-$500 Mini Dribbler.

Conley PG MEM is out tonight, replace with K Irving CLE PG

Monday March 7th Main Slate Line Ups

Updated Main Slate Line Up with D Green GSW now a GTD

Updated Main Slate Line Up

Beware, V Oladipo ORL SG is a GTD and is a late starting game, It sounds like he will play.

Switch out Matt Barnes MEM SF with H Barnes GSW SF, Matt Barnes is a scratch.

March 7th Free Roll Entry

I skipped the Express slate tonight and went with a Late Night Line up.

$1-$10K Late Night Swat Line Up

Updated Late Night Line Up, D Green GSW may not play(Illness)

Updated Late Night Line Up

Monday March 7th Late Night Line Up

I may be using too many Golden State players (3) on my Late Night Line Up, I hope it’s not a absolute blow out and everyone sits in the 4th Quarter.

The Nightly $250 Free Roll starts at 7PM on Fan Duel

 

March 5th Express Line up Suggestion

One of my 4 paid tournament line ups caught a Pay Out on Fan Duel on Friday Night.

Friday Winning Line Up

The winning line up on the $10K NBA After Hours Swat scored 276 points and won $750.

What was the big difference between his line up and mine?

He had Markel Brown of the Brooklyn Nets. I had W Barton.

Brown scored 40.1 points to Bartons 18.9

Markel Brown March 4th Fantasy scoring

Now only .5% of the 11,764 entrants had Brown, that’s like 58 total line ups with Brown and by the way, he was on the 1st and 3rd place contest finishers.

How did they know he was going to go off like that?

The BKN at DEN game also went into OT, just another thing that just went against me on Friday Night.

The Saturday March 5th NBA game Slate has just 8 games scheduled.

Here’s the line up I’m going with on the BKN@MIN, SAC@SA and HOU@CHI 8PM Express Slate.

March 5 Express Line Up

Here’s the line up I’m using on the Late Night 8:30PM Slate.

Satyrday March 5 Late Night Line Up

As always there is a full 8 NBA game $250 NBA Free Roll on Fan Duel tonight.

Friday Fan Duel Express Tournament Line Up Advice

My Thursday Line Ups were close, but just one pay out…….

Thursday Main Slate Results

I was only 6 points off a small pay out on both the $250K and $100K Tourneys…….

The night started slow scoring for my line up and I started creeping up the rankings when the late games started. If only OKC and GSW would have gone into OT or if I had started K Durant 54.5 pts. instead of B Westbrook 39.7 pts. (their salaries were about the same) I would have ranked a little higher.

Thursday Late Night Scores

The late night contests also were slow starting for me, but at about 11:30PM I finally hit a payout and once again an OT game by OKC/GSW would have been to my benefit. Most late games that go into OT usually screw me, but last night it would have been nice, I was heavy into the last game with players.

The $2 – NBA TNT $250K had 3 players tie for 1st with 350.1 points and they each won $13K.

The $1 – NBA Swat $100K winner had 351.4 points for a $10K win

The $1 – NBA Swat $10K  winner had 312.9 points for a $750 win.

There are 10 games on the Fan Duel NBA Slate tonight and player salaries are not as top heavy as last night on all the slates.

I got my monthly FDP Bronze free roll invite last night, that’s a $2000 Rewards Free Roll for low limit players like me.

Bronze FDP Free Roll

Here’s the Line Up I’m using on that Free Roll and the daily $250 Fan Duel Free Roll:

Friday Free Roll line up

Here is my suggested Express Line Up for Friday, March 4th:

Friday Express Line Up

Here are the Line Ups I’m using on the Late Slate:

Friday Late Line Ups

Here is my After Hours Line Up:

Friday After Hours Line Up

Watch the status of Clarkson on the Lakers, if he plays you might want to switch out G Harris DEN with him, you’ll have enough salary to do it.

Good Luck On Fan Duel tonight……
