NFL Reid Option: Week 11
Each week, Sammy Reid will break down each position in detail, pinpointing his favorite plays at various salary ranges. Who should we be focusing our core on this week? Read below to find out!
If you read the plays in last week’s Reid Option or listened to this week’s Sunday Recap Pod you know that your boy Sammy had a monster week … but in the end I still felt like a loser. Why? Because I did something in last week’s column that I never do – I wrote up a player I didn’t believe in: Adam Humphries.
It’s a slippery slope, writing this column. I turn it in on Wednesday night or Thursday morning, and a lot can change between then and Sunday. New injury information comes out, players’ status changes, opinions change. It’s not often my lineups are the same on Sunday as they are on Wednesday – nobody’s are – that’s just the reality of DFS.
Something I pride myself on is that all the players I write up are born from my own research; I don’t read a single column or listen to a single DFS podcast until I’ve finished this column. I basically do everything I can to limit outside influences so that everything in The Reid Option is organic. Obviously I’ll end up writing up some plays that everybody else is on, and other times I’ll write up guys who I think are great plays that end up being contrarian.
The point is, I care about doing this column right. I don’t consider myself a tout, even though I imagine I’m viewed that way. Sure, I write a column for RotoGrinders and do some podcasts/XM Radio spots. But I’m not out there trying to build a brand, sell coaching services, get people to sign up for my new site, etc. Really, I’m just a dude who likes BSing about sports and has had success at online gaming. I enjoy writing, and I genuinely care about this column helping people win money at DFS.
