NFL Week 7 DFS Value Plays: Kyle Allen, Kenyan Drake Top List

Week 7 of the NFL means we’re nearly two months into the season, a delight in the age of COVID-19. I’m pulling from four positions for this week’s value plays, and going to the Cardinals well twice in what should be a high-scoring affair against Seattle. Kyle Allen, Washington QB […]

Live Scoring Issues Tarnish Weekend’s DFS Football Games

The weekend of football proved hair-pullingly frustrating for DFS users who couldn’t follow live scoring for their contests, and who are still waiting for payouts on Monday – up to two days after some contests ended. Neither DraftKings nor FanDuel offered live scoring for college football contests on Saturday. DraftKings […]

If you want to play Lamar Jackson or Dalvin Cook this week, you’ll need to dig deeper into the salary pool in other roster spots to afford the high-priced guys. As always, I’m here to help with five cheap DFS plays under $5,000 on DraftKings. Let’s dig in. Myles Gaskin, […]

Waiver Wire TE Pickups: Dallas Goedert Fractures Ankle, Jimmy Graham Rising

The Philadelphia Eagles suffered a huge bad beat when they lost tight end Dallas Goedert indefinitely with an ankle injury. With Goedert down, consider adding Jimmy Graham (Chicago Bears), Mike Geisicki (Miami Dolphins), or Eric Ebron (Pittsburgh Steelers) if you need a fantasy football TE. In essentially nine quarters of […]

Week 4 Waiver Wire Pickups: Myles Gaskin, Allen Lazard, or Justin Jefferson

If your NFL fantasy football team needs help after three weeks of action, you’d better work the waiver wire to plug those holes in your roster. Consider Myles Gaskin (Miami Dolphins), Carlos Hyde (Seattle Seahawks), rookie Justin Jefferson (Minnesota Vikings), or Allen Lazard (Green Bay Packers) as potential Week 4 […]

Saturday Night DFS: Stack Bama or Miami

The Saturday night DFS slate is small, but mighty. Miami-Florida State and Alabama-Missouri should offer plenty of high-scoring DFS totals, but other games offer players with sneaky good values for low salaries. Consider these six players for your rosters this week. Quarterbacks  D’Eriq King, Miami ($8,700 on DraftKings, $10,200 on […]

This Week’s DFS Value Plays (NFL): Josh Kelley, Curtis Samuel

We can roster the Jets’ QB Sam Darnold for $5,000 on DraftKings this week, but I’ll say no thanks to that. Instead – like we did last week – we’ll focus on running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends for our under $5K DFS value plays. Josh Kelley, Chargers RB […]

College Football DFS: SEC Returns, but Look to Texas and Oklahoma

The SEC returns to play this Saturday, but for DFS purposes on the day slate, I’ll mostly focus on the Big 12. Oddsmakers predict big scores from teams like Oklahoma and Texas, so we want to draft several players from these squads. Quarterbacks Sam Ehlinger, Texas ($8,900 on DK, $10,800 […]

Waiver Wire Week 3: Mike Davis, Dion Lewis, Jonnu Smith, Marquez Valdes-Scantling

While the world fights the coronavirus epidemic, the NFL fights a plague of serious injuries. Big-time fantasy football studs like Christian McCaffrey (Carolina Panthers), Saquon Barkley (NY Giants), and Davante Adams (Green Bay Packers) were sidelined with injuries in Week 2. You should strongly consider adding their backups– RB Mike […]

5 NFL Week 2 DFS Value Plays Under $5,000

Last week’s DFS value plays didn’t hit it big, with the Falcons’ new tight end Hayden Hurst being overshadowed by the big days posted by the team’s wide receivers, and the 49ers focusing on the ground game, leaving Kendrick Bourne with precious few targets. This week, no starting quarterback is […]

The Saturday slate for college football DFS will feature plenty of high-scoring offenses, with players like Oklahoma State’s Chuba Hubbard and Houston’s Marquez Stevenson among those likely to put up big points for daily fantasy players.
