Best of luck to those season-long players who have Week 1 of their playoffs this week. Over here in Daily Fantasy world, we’ve got a slate with approximately 50 cash-viable running backs, so let’s get right to it.Please, blog, may I have some more?
We’ve officially entered the time of year where red Q’s enter your dreams chasing you through your high school naked while your high school crush is looking on. Don’t fret though — I’ve got you covered — not with the dreams though. Seek help.

Welcome to Prop bet fans. For the second straight week, we had a reader beat the touts. With an 9/10, reader ILuvMomJeans outscored the field. With an 8 Fighting Chance Steve was the best tout. Week’s 11 and 12 are always odd, so it will be interesting to see if the touts can get their groove back. This week’s prize is a voucher to have B_Don show up as Kim Jong-un to your next secret meeting in Singapore. You can get into THIS WEEK’S PROPS here. Don’t forget to give Rudy’s Tools a trial if you want an edge.Please, blog, may I have some more?
For this week’s article I am going to try something new. Let’s get a conversation going on a topic that’s DFS-related but not particularly substantive (and thus probably won’t be the topic of discussion anywhere else). Is it a good thing that the Rams/Chiefs game won’t be on the main slate? I’m not talking about the general point about the value of having the MNF game on the slate (as they used to do a few years ago), rather, just specifically the Rams/Chiefs game, which has the highest total since 1986 and would have had numerous guys who would have been main cogs of your lineup had the game been on the slate (Gurley, at his slightly lowered price of $10,600, and Tyreek Hill at $7,900 would have been two monster plays, Kelce at $7,800, Woods at $7,500, and Cooks at $7,800 would have been expensive pieces but reasonable plays, Josh Reynolds at $5,000 would have been an interesting punt, and while Patrick Mahomes at $9,500 may have been priced out of viability, Jared Goff at $8,300 would certainly be in the conversation). So, what say you, my loyal readers? Feel free to post as to whether you think it’s a good thing or a bad thing that the Rams/Chiefs game isn’t on the slate (or if you think it’s good for cash games, bad for GPPs, or vice versa, that’s certainly an interesting take too). I’d love to hear everyone’s opinion on this…Please, blog, may I have some more?
The one injury I’m watching most closely this week is Joe Flacco’s. I know he’s only owned in around 20% of leagues, but it’s not him I’m concerned about — it’s Lamar Jackson. The 2016 Heisman winner actually had an even better 2017 than his 2016 and would’ve won the award back to back if it weren’t for the crazy breakout of Baker Mayfield. If you’re a Tom Brady owner looking for a good bye week replacement — keep an eye on the Ravens QB situation. Either way Flacco goes I think a Ravens QB is due for a big game.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Just four short weeks before the fantasy football playoffs. I don’t know about you guys, but it seems like I have a lot riding on this Thursday’s game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Carolina Panthers for this week’s results. This week is one thing, but what about the fantasy playoffs?
Is it too early to start thinking about the most important three week run of the fantasy season? Hell no! Be Bill Belicheck, not Jason Garrett. Before we get to the rankings for week 10, I’m going to point out some favorable playoff schedules that I have noticed so far. That way, you can prepare some sneaky trades before your deadline or go on a hunt in the waiver wire to see what you can get while others are living week to week trying to survive bye week hell…Please, blog, may I have some more?
The baseball article I write during the baseball season has a section “Doing Lines In Vegas” but here in NFL season, we’re “Doing Lines With cinthree.” If anyone is willing bet me that Nathan Peterman will outscore the Chicago Bears defense in fantasy points tomorrow, I will take that bet. Peterman’s not going to break 10 and the Bears are probably putting up 12-15 (which makes them a bad play in DFS).Please, blog, may I have some more?
That is how I envision Nathan Peterman going out on Sunday will look like. It’s an embarrassment to football and modern civilization that he continues to get opportunities to start games in the National Football League. Where we all saw Nick Mullens last night destroy a Raiders team that is actually an abomination, it will be a real contest to see if Peterman can do worse. Let’s look at some of the key games for fantasy this week…Please, blog, may I have some more?
