DraftKings NFL Playoff Advice and Value Picks: Wild Card Weekend

Thousands of years ago, the ancient urban philosopher DJ Khaled made history, proclaiming to the masses, “They don’t want you to win!” Khaled felt that haters within the establishment were conspiring in an effort to prevent him from achieving feats of great success, and unfortunately that very same principle can be applied right now in the world of fantasy football. “Wait ‘til next year” they said. “The season is over” they said. Well, they are wrong. There are still three solid weeks to acquire great riches via NFL DraftKings competitions, so if you weren’t fortunate enough to win your standard league, feel free to spend money you don’t have in an effort to win back those dues. For the decorated few, for you champions out there, don’t be afraid to get greedy and attempt to quadruple your already quadrupled league investment.

Talent vs. Situation: A Fantasy Football Debate

Everyone who has played fantasy football has, at one time or another had the following internal debate, “I really like this player’s talent, but this other player has such a better situation”. Now that situation might be a season long outlook or a weekly match-up, but nonetheless, fantasy football players’ are getting headache after headache, week after week, year after year regarding this very subject. There are those who believe talent triumphs over all (insert Player X’s name here truthers know who they are) while others believe that no matter how much talent a player has, their situation (Steelers’ running back, or Drew Brees’ tight end) can be a lone determining factor for draft slot or week-in-week-out playability. I won’t say that this article will answer the question of what’s more important, but I will strive to provide some concrete examples over this past season of each of these factors (talent or situation) having an impact on some of our favorite NFL players.

The Price Is Right: DraftKings Edition, Week 17

I’ve got some bad news, guys. Football season is officially OVER. Unless you’re part of that 10% lucky enough to win your league’s hard earned prize pool or watch your hometown team compete in meaningful January football game, in which case I hate your guts and don’t want you reading my article. For the other 90% of us, all that remains between a long offseason of coaching searches, combines, and insufferable draft Twitter is one final regular season DFS slate. To make matters worse, Week 17 can only be described as DFS purgatory, meaning playoff seeding is going to wreak havoc on your fantasy lineups. With many teams resting their starters, there are only a handful of elite players worth rostering in your lineups this week. Guys like Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson and Devonta Freeman will be uber-chalk and if you want to win back some of that Christmas money you wasted on things like gifts for your loved ones, you’ll have to play those guys. You know it and your opponent knows it, which means finding good value that allows you to pay up for those few high dollar guys is as important now as it has been at any point during the season.

How Did the Top 20 Drafted Wide Receivers Perform in 2016?

Fantasy owners spend valuable time over the summer doing research in preparation for the draft. It’s a common mantra that you can’t win your league at the draft, but you can lose it. This article will go through the end of year rankings and stats of a variety of wide receivers that were drafted early in the summer of 2016. We’ll examine if the busts were avoidable and if the “surprises” were predictable.

The Price Is Right: DraftKings Edition, Week 16

I’m assuming all of you have missed enough days from work/school to have seen your fair share of “The Price is Right” episodes at 11 am EST on CBS. If you haven’t, then you’ve definitely read enough “The Price is Right: DraftKings Edition” articles on The Fantasy Report dot net to know how the game works. Having said that, we’re going to switch things up this week. Blindly guessing prices a mere 48 hours away from the most wonderful time of the year is a cruelty only Mr. Scrooge and the Grinch would bestow upon their children if it were physically possible for them to mate and produce offspring. So in the spirit of holiday cheer, there will be no guessing, no bidding wars to wage this week. Instead, all picks will be nestled safely under the tree (metaphorically speaking, of course) because much like Mr. Grinch, my heart too grows three times its size on Christmas Day.

DraftKings GPP Plays: Week 16

There are many teams that are eliminated from the season-long fantasy playoffs by this time of the year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get your fix of fantasy football a couple more times this year.

A very successful strategy in daily fantasy sports in general is to try and think about who will be owned, and how they will perform relative to that performance. For example, if a $4500 wide receiver on DraftKings is projected to see somewhere in the range of 8-10 targets because of an injury he’s a good play. Since that injury news is common knowledge though, there’s a good chance that the ownership of that player will skyrocket. There is a point where the ownership of a player can (and should) deter you from playing them because the results can’t help you when a guy is going to be 50%+ owned. If that player fails and you can find a player in that price range that outperforms him, you stand to benefit.
