  • NFL, Week 12

    Working through my player pool for the week. I think that while many flock to Moore on the heels of his big game vs the Lions and Funchess being out, I'm going to also look to the other side of that receiver group and put Samuel into mine. Seven targets la... Read More

  • NFL, Week 11

    I enjoyed doing this instead of the normal thing. Here's how it all ended up (red is < 3x value, yellow is between 3x-4x value, green is > 4x value). [img]https://i.imgur.com/KzEnRQa.jpg[/img] - I ended up with a loss of 13% on the day. A down week, but nothing disheartening. - Lineup construction is such a huge deal. I ended up down on the day but I owned every single player that won the $3 1.2MM GPP except for the Texans. It's not just enough to have the correct players in your pool yet that's what the vast, vast, vast majority of DFS discussion is on these forums, podcasts, articles, and videos. Trying to figure out how to mix and match them to optimize your potential points is just as important. I'll need to focus more on that next week. - I had too much Lewis. I knew I had too much Lewis when I posted this yesterday. If I shifted Lewis from 16 to 11 and Ingram - the other player I liked at that price point - up from 3 to 8 the day could have been more positive. These are the good examples of how thin the margins are in this game. I can't only focus on the negatives though because I also said I had too much DJ Moore at 45% owned. With Moore being more contrarian than I thought - around 4.5% - it was a nice boost that mitigated the Lewis errors. I think moving forward capping exposure at around 60% as long as there's not an injury related misprice such as the Chubb week is ideal. - I don't feel too awful about the Lewis play in general. The Colts did their part for a shootout, Lewis had 20 yards on the first drive, and then Gabbert had to come in for Mariota and that killed any chance of success. Still too much exposure, but a play I don't regret in retrospect. - Tight End and Defense was a dumpster fire for me this week. I need to improve at those positions instead of treating them as pure salary relief dart throws. - Too many 1 off dart throws without much of a reason for them. Crabtree with Jackson was a hopeful play instead of a smart one. Godwin in a crowded offense was a hopeful play instead of a smart one. "(player-popup #doug-martin)Doug Martin":/players/doug-martin-13565 was going against a terrible run defense but he doesn't get enough volume to roster him. Smallwood was a pick of a low volume RB in a crowded backfield. Some of the other one offs had potential to put up big games - Hopkins, Boyd, Juju, and Shepard can put up 30 in some weeks - but those other ones just had no real purpose. Overall it was a fun week. I think after having a couple of positive weeks that the process is still improving. I'm better than I was in week 4 and I hope I can say the same in week 14 about me right now. Thanks to the forum for keeping things interesting.

  • NFL, Week 11

    Wanted to try something a little different this week. Instead of just doing a general toss out of a few of my favorite plays as the week progresses I decided to wait until I did all of my research, chewed on it, and then created my lineups for the week. Ra... Read More

  • NFL, Week 11

    If you're looking at all 22s I'd love some insight into Golladay. Was he getting much focus prior to Jones going down and the team needing to throw to catch up? Not just from Stafford, but focus from the defense as well. Read More

    Barkley v TB, Zeke @ Atl, McCaffrey v Det, and "(player-popup #david-johnson)David Johnson":/players/david-johnson-21774 v Oak are in fantastic matchups, large parts of their offense, catch passes, and are priced highly enough that it's hard to get multipl... Read More

  • NFL, Week 10

    Glad to hear mike! I also had my first truly good week (which could be even better if Barkley has a good night since my Sun/Mon lineups had Ertz/Ingram and is well into the money already!) and part of it was identifying my favorite plays and mix and match ... Read More

  • NFL, Week 9

    I'm excited for you because I did the same thing. Second half going to be big! At the start of the week I said Lat Murray was one of my favorite plays. Now with Diggs likely out and Cook getting limited snaps causing many to shift off of him, I have upgra... Read More
