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.

Play on Week Three for Free on DraftKings, with any deposit.

Players and their salaries I am targeting this week on DraftKings.

QB’s: R Tannehill MIA 6200, R Fitzpatrick NYJ 5900, D Prescott DAL 5700

RB’s: F Whittaker CAR 3800, M Forte NYJ 7000, C Simms TB 4900, M Asiata MIN 3000, J Ajayi MIA 4000, M Gordon SD 5800

WR’s: J Landry MIA 6600, T Sharpe TEN 4700, Q Enunwa NYJ 4800, T Benjamin SD 5200

TE’s: D Walker TEN 5000, J James PIT 3500

DEF: MIA 3000, ARI 3600, TB 3100, DAL 2500

Top Stacks: Tannehill/Landry MIA 12800, Prescott/ Bryant DAL 14100

Injury updates: J Charles is expected to play this week in a limited manner. C Ivory JAX RB and T Eifort CIN TE returned to practice this week.

New Injuries to watch:  A Foster MIA RB, R Jennings NYG RB, J Cutler CHI QB,

Out: C Coleman CLE WR, J Stewart CAR RB, A Peterson MIN RB, D Moncreif IND WR, D Martin TB RB, A Abdullah DET RB, J McCown CLE QB, D Woodhead SD RB, RG3 CLE QB, K Allen SD WR, T Romo DAL QB, D Lewis NE RB, B Watson BAL TE, T Bridgewater MIN QB

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.

Did you use the DK Live app on Sunday?

DraftKings rolled out their new mobile app DK Live last Thursday,

When I wrote about it last week, I promised to try it out on Sunday with a full NFL schedule of games playing.

I spent a lot of time on DK Live and played with all the features while flipping thru the early NFL games on TV.

I thought it worked very well, I bounced from single game play by play, to red zone plays, to my players scoring and back continually. I had multiple line ups going and quite a few players to monitor.

The App is a little slow when posting plays and scoring when compared to the TV action, but all online sports scoring app’s are also similarly delayed.

You cannot change or view your line ups from DK Live, you can only monitor individual player results and not whole line up scores.

You can however go directly to your account on the DraftKings App (click the DK crown on bottom right) and make line up changes and view your contest line up scores there……

This is App perfect if your on the road, at a party, at work or anywhere to monitor real games, your fantasy players and see which real players around the league are having a kick ass fantasy days.

Download it today on your App store and use it to make your DraftKings experience complete.

DraftKings Ticket Redemption

I’ve been bombarded with how do I redeem my Second Chance ticket I won yesterday on Draftkings

Thousands of players who didn’t win cash won on the Week One $100K free contest, won tickets to the week 2 Second Chance Free Roll.

I for one, am one of those players. I used too many high risk high reward players on that contest.

The Good News, Draftkings is having another NFL $100K free contest next Sunday also. I’ll be in that one too, hopefully with better results.

To redeem any ticket on DraftKings, just follow these easy steps:

Go to my account on DraftKings (upper right corner on home page).


Then click my tickets,


Click Redeem,


All Second Chance Ticket holders will be notified when the 2nd Chance Contest is open for drafting. Keep in mind that you’ll have to use this ticket in week 2.

When you click redeem for any other DraftKings contest tickets, you’ll be brought to contest(s) that the ticket(s) can be used to enter.
