Monday Night Line Up Suggestions

Tonight’s Monday Night game has a lot of promise for some high scoring.

Monday Night Match-up: Chicago Bears at San Diego Chargers

Both teams are not particularly good defensively and there are plenty of opportunities for fantasy players.

I wouldn’t be surprised if this turns out to be a 35-31 kind of shoot out……….I used multiple players from this weeks Monday Night game, heavily on my all my week 9 contests

All the player salaries are within reason and you’ll be able to use anyone you’d like when building a line up for the Draftkings $325K Monday Night Special. You could even make up 5 or 6 line ups mixing up all the player options and all with high scoring potential to insure yourself multiple payouts.

For the Monday Night Game, I’m liking just about everyone.

QB’s: P Rivers SD $6900, J Cutler CHI $5200. I’d lean towards Rivers here, he having a great year and the Bears DB’s cannot cover any one

RB’s: J Langford CHI $4000, D Woodhead SD $4800, M Gordan $4000. I’m leaning towards Langford, he’s unproven but has a really high upside (20 to 25 possible touches) on a team that likes to use their RB’s heavily in the pass game.

WR’s: A Jeffery CHI $6700, M Floyd SD $3900, S Johnson SD $3200. I’d play any of these guys, Floyd and Johnson will see a lot of looks now that K Allen is done for the year. Jeffery and Cutler have a great history of big plays.

TE’s A Gates SD $4700, M Bennett CHI $4900. I’d expect Gates to score at least twice tonight–no problem. Bennett will be a bit more active tonight with Forte out.

The Thursday Night Game is Buffalo at NY Jets.

This one may not see as much scoring, as both teams have better defenses.

QB’s: Fitzpatrick NYJ $5100, T Taylor BUF $5500. Fitzpatrick has better receiving options, go with him on Thursday.

RB’s C Ivory NYJ $5900, L McCoy Q BUF $5500, K Williams BUF $3800. Ivory is a must start for the Jets.

WR’s: B Marshall NYJ $7400, E Decker NYJ $5300, S Watkins BUF $5000. Marshall and Decker are the 2 best receivers in this game.

DEF: NYJ $3000 The Jets are the only defense I’d consider.

Here’s one line up you can start tonight

Week 9 DraftKings Line Up Advice and Value Plays

It’s Week Nine in the NFL and time to look at some NFL News, Results and a few early line up suggestions and player values for this weeks Draft Kings Fantasy football players and salaries.

You should always use these Basic Draftkings Weekly Football Tips and Strategies every week to enhance your DraftKings line up scoring potential.

Key Week 9 NFL Lines to consider when looking for your weekly player options:

WAS at NE -14 (52.5), TEN at NO -8 (47.5), OAK at PIT -5 (48), DEN -4 at IND (48), CHI at SD -4 (49.5)

Here’s a couple of thoughts from this past weekends games played and where I’m looking in Week 9.

First off, Week 8 took a severe injury toll on a few Top Fantasy Players.

L Bell PIT RB Knee, S Smith BAL WR Achilles, M Forte CHI RB Knee, K Allen SD WR Back, C Johnson DET WR Ankle, R Bush SF RB Knee, L Green SD TE Ankle, B Marshall NYJ Ankle/Hand all did not finish their games and the season has ended for Bell, Smith and Bush. Monitor the statuses of the others closely this week.

The Denver D took a toll on A Rodgers GB QB Season Stats: 77 YP and 0 TD’s. He has another tough assignment this week v CAR.

Now, I don’t think that Aaron Rodgers will have 2 stinkers in a row, but I can’t see him throwing 300 and 3 against a very strong Panther Defense either.

P Manning DEN QB showed some Nay-Sayers that he still may be good enough to lead the Broncos and their outstanding Defense to another Super Bowl.

Demaryius Thomas WR had a great game against the Packers, he didn’t score but had a nice line of 8/168.

The Broncos should manhandle the Colts this week, so Thomas WR $7500, E Sanders WR $7300, R Hillman RB $4600 and the DEN D $3000 should be worth playing.

The NYG at NO game saw D Brees NO QB throw 7 TD’s and E Manning NYG QB throw 6 TD’s and have the fantasy scoring game of the year. In total, both of them combined for 861 YP and 13 TD’s.

By the way, O Beckham NYG WR had 3 of those E Manning scores.

Ride’em while their hot…..

D Brees NO QB v TEN $7200, E Manning NYG QB v TB $6900, O Beckham NYG WR v TB $8800, B Cooks NO WR v TEN $5800

I’m liking the San Diego Chargers hosting the Chicago Bears on Monday Night. Philip Rivers QB $6900, A Gates TE $4700 and K Allen $7700 WR (watch his status) should post very good stat lines. J Cutler CHI QB $5200, A Jeffery WR $6700 and even the Bear rookie RB J Langford $4000 should have nice games trying to keep up with the Chargers.

Update: K Allen SD WR is out indefinitely with a Kidney injury, this makes M Floyd SD WR $3900 and S Johnson SD WR $3200 the options to consider on Monday Night.

The NE Patriots should have little trouble with the Washington team. T Brady QB $8500, J Edelman WR $8200, D Lewis RB $5400 and Gronkowski TE $8000. I’m also liking the NE D $3300 against a shaky WAS Offense

Can T Gurley STL RB $6900 continue his Jim Brown impersonation against the Vikings? I would say so.

Can S Diggs MIN WR $5300 score again against the Rams? Well, he will get a quite a few chances as that game gets out of hand.

I  have used B Bortles JAX QB $5400, A Robinson JAX WR $6400 and A Hurns JAX WR quite often this year with a lot of success. They are at the Jets who have a solid Defense and should force the Jags to be throwing a lot when they stop trying to run ball.

Eric Decker NYJ WR $5300 may be the #1 receiving option for the Jets with B Marshall nursing a bad ankle.

C Ivory NYJ RB $5900 seems to find the end zone every week and the JAX Defense leaves us with a lot to be desired.

The loss of L Bell PIT RB makes D Williams PIT RB $5500 a nice value and has made the Steelers more of a passing team more than ever. B Roethlisberger QB $6600 , A Brown WR $8100, M Bryant WR $5500 will be active against the Raiders at home.

The Atlanta Falcons will be visiting the SF 49er’s. Starting M Ryan ATL QB $7100, J Jones ATL WR $9300, D Freeman RB $8000 and the ATL D $3400 are line up locks to me. The 49er’s have so many offensive and defensive issues and no real answers to any of them.

More players to consider in Week 9

R Hillman DEN RB $5900, L McCoy BUF $5500, G Olsen CAR TE $6500,

Here’s one Week 9 Line up using our suggestions

Week 8 Sunday Fantasy Update

It’s just a few hours before all the 1PM kick offs, here’s a couple of last minute Weekly Line Up Tidbits…….

Ben Roethlisberger PIT QB looks good toLast Minute Fantasy Advice go today against the Bengals.

With the addition of Martavis Bryant PIT WR along with Antonio Brown WR and LeVeon Bell RB, Big Ben has a full arsenal and should be ready to put up points.

Andy Dalton CIN QB is having a great year and is up against the Steelers today. His price is right and he makes a good play along with T Eifort TE and AJ Green WR.

Expect the Bengals at Steelers to be a high scoring game.

Dez Bryant DAL WR has a good chance of getting back into the Cowboy starting line up today against the Seahawks. However, keep in mind that he has Matt Cassel as his QB, it’s a bad match up and he could be on a Snap Count. I’d think twice before committing his salary cap hit on your weekly line ups today.

John Brown ARI WR is questionable today but practiced Friday (a good sign). He did play last week with a similar Hamstring Injury. Just monitor his his status for his 1PM Start. Use Mike Floyd ARI WR if Brown is out.

M. Evans TB WR may be the only true WR playing today because of injuries for the Bucs today. He is a nice play against the Falcons.

Eric Decker is another Questionable WR. The Jets are at Oakland and is a late start, monitor his status and have a back up plan in place. C Ivory NYJ RB, B Marshall NYJ WR are also a nice plays today.

Antonio Gates SD TE, has a MCL Sprain and most likely will be a scratch, start Ladarius Green SD TE in his place with confidence against the Ravens.

The Chargers at Ravens game have two bad pass defenses up against each other. Rivers SD QB, K Allen SD WR, J Flacco BAL QB, J Forsett BAL RB, S Smith Sr. BAL WR all should out up nice numbers.

A Peterson MIN RB v CHI always runs over the Bears, expect a huge game from him.

A Jeffery CHI WR will see a lot of balls thrown towards him today against the Vikings. The Bears should be playing from behind in the second half and there will be garbage time points scored.

The STL D v SF and the CAR D v turnover machine A Luck QB of the Colts are strong defensive team choices.

Other RB’s to consider using today are T Gurley STL is a Outstanding Play v CLE, D Woodhead SD v BAL.

Other WR’s to consider using today are S Diggs MIN v CHI, and M Jones CIN v PIT

A couple of TE’s who could also be used: T Eifort CIN v PIT, G Olsen CAR v IND

DraftKings Week 8 Line Up Advice and Value Plays

It’s Week Eight in the NFL and time to look at a few early line up suggestions and player values for this weeks Draft Kings Fantasy football players and salaries.

You should always use these Basic Draftkings Weekly Football Tips and Strategies every week to enhance your DraftKings line up scoring potential.

Key Week 8 NFL Lines to consider when looking for your weekly player options:

The all of the early NFL lines have not been finalized as I write this, here is what available to use:  TB at ATL -7 (48), NYG at NO -3.5 (49.5)

Here’s a couple of thoughts from this past weekends games played and where I’m looking in Week 8.

Arian Foster HOU RB ruptured his Achilles, he is out for the year. Alfred Blue is slated to be the starting RB from this point on, he hasn’t really impressed anyone this year, but his $3500 price is very tempting.

Ben Roethlisberger PIT QB  is expected to play Sunday, you can start A Brown WR, M Bryant WR and L Bell RB with confidence this week.

Philip Rivers SD QB $6600 and K Allen SD WR $7700 should be successful going against a bad Ravens secondary ranked at the bottom of the NFL.

Miami plays at NE on Thursday Night, look for Thursday start contests on DraftKings to get T Brady, R Gronkowski, J Edelman into your week 8 lineups.

Julio Jones ATL WR $9200 and D Freeman ATL RB $8000 should have big weeks against Tampa Bay.

The Indianapolis Colts really are bad, the only start-able players are D Moncrief WR $5500 and TY Hilton WR $6900.

Todd Gurley STL RB $6300 going against a very bad 49er’s team in week 8. He is a must start this week on all formats.

The STL DST $3200 is also a must play against the 49er’s in Week 8.

S Diggs MIN WR $4800 is going against a bad Bear defense this week, look for him to continue to be T Bridgewaters #1 receiving target.

Alshon Jeffery CHI WR $6400 had a nice return to the line up in week 6, look for J Cutler CHI QB $5200 to find him quite often this Sunday.

Value Plays Sunday / Monday Games:

Best QB Values:  P Rivers SD $6600, A Dalton CIN $6000, B Roethlisberger PIT $6700, C Palmer ARI $7000, J Cutler CHI $5200

Best TE Values: G Olsen CAR $6500, T Eifert CIN $5300, M Bennett CHI $4900, L Green SD $3000 (if A Gates is out)

Best Flex Values: Any Value Receiver or Tight End, you always want to throw a receiving option into the flex spot, points per reception will always tip the scales in favor of receivers in the DraftKings Flex position.

Basic DraftKings Fantasy Basketball Strategy

Basic Daily NBA Fantasy Strategy on DraftKings

The NBA is tipping off in a couple of days and here a few tips and strategies you can use when making your daily line ups on DraftKings.

The Basics:

On fantasy basketball you are not just looking for the high point scoring players. You really want the players who are the best all around players.

Rebounds, assists, steals and blocks are where the big fantasy scores come from and the players who can average a double-double every night and the occasional triple-double are the highest fantasy scorers.

Player Minutes are another key stat to watch as the season progresses, it only makes sense that when a player is on the floor longer, the more opportunity he will have to rack up fantasy points.

DraftKings has all that information right at your fingertips whenever you are on the Player selection screen.

Player Selection Screen (Draft Room)

DraftKings NBA Draft Room and Player Salaries

When you click a players name on the salary listing you’ll get details of that players stats, splits, game log, match-up and any recent news or fantasy outlook.

Player Card

Using OPRK on DraftKings:

Finding the best match-ups for your line up is easy on DraftKings. The player listing will give you a OPRK for every player listed. The OPRK is how that players opponent that night ranks against his position.

The higher numbers are better than the lower numbers when looking at OPRK.

For example: A Green OPRK number means that player is playing a favorable match up that night, his opponent that night doesn’t defend his position very well.

A Red OPRK means his opponent defends his position very well and it is not a good match up that night.

White OPRK is more of a neutral match up that night, his opponent is about average against his position that night.

Using your Cap Space: You’ll never be able to start every player you’d like to every night. Your $50000 Cap will only allow you an average of $6250 per man. This means you’ll have to find a Value player or 2 every night.

Fear not, there are plenty of $3K to $5K value players to choose from every night.

Nagging injuries to star players are a good place to find these value players. Click any top salary player with an injury notation and read up on which player is expected to see more minutes should the injury be serious enough for a starter to limit his minutes or sit out a night or two.

You can find each NBA teams depth charts on the player selection screen on the NBA games listed for that evening.

NBA Game list

You can also look for back ups on teams who are heavy favorites on a given night. The favored teams starters will usually be pulled out in the 3rd or 4th quarter with a big lead to eliminate injury risk and save their legs for later in the season. Those back up players additional minutes can add up to some nice fantasy points.

This could also work the other way too, if a team easily blows out their opponent on a given night, star players on the winning team may not put up huge fantasy numbers (because he is sitting more) that night. That too is something to remember.

Always look for top players on games that are expected to be a close, hard fought game. They’ll be in the game longer and score more fantasy points.

How much should I spend on each position?

It is best to spend more Cap Space on PG’s, PF’s and Centers. They will score more on assists, rebounds, blocks and steals and will have better chances for the double-double or triple-double bonus points.

DraftKings posted this list of average position spend from last seasons winning line ups on their PlayBook.
