    Didn’t end up playing this past week. This week should be a lot more interesting. On top of that a lot of guys are priced down. Gurley at 8K, Gordon at 6200, Macks price dropped after crushing Houston, Damien Williams dropped to 5100 with Ware coming back, Zeke down to 8200, Kamara a very fair 7300, all of the receivers are under 8K, Woods Alshon and Cooks under 6K. I think DK kind of ruined this slate by pricing so many guys down. First guy I like is Mack. I think if Indy loses this game it’s because they’re on the road outdoors. I really feel like they’d beat KC on turf

    Interview with DK’s player pricing manager

  • 808state

    Why does the league always make the LAC play the early east coast game?

  • hautalak

    Honestly don’t care about pricing because I know I can actually get some offense places. The hard part is going to be keeping up with all the points, yardage, and receptions.

    Probably locking in Luck, Mack, and Gurley right now and trying to fit in from there. I’m hoping this ends as a fun week. Because wild card week underwhelmed in the scoring department but did provide some drama so I’ll take it I suppose.

    All the Foles and Eagles defense..I feel a deja vue of when Vikings was favored by 13 last year at home vs Philadelphia

  • kdsdawg

    Brady $5600..at home in January ..with Edelman or White..fading Gronk against that Charger TE defense..IND and KC in the bottom defending the TE..NO in the top against TE..Rams #5 against TE
    just typing out thoughts

    Bad luck for this round. NE had the 1pm game scheduled before the wildcard round. Had Houston won, Chargers would have gotten the 4pm with KC.

    It’s a conspiracy. Kraft and BB conspired to play the team that has to travel cross country twice. You didn’t hear?

  • kdsdawg

    so game script caused the Colts to not involve Hines at all Saturday…not one target nor one carry
    one would think this game script would be different..we know KC can put up the points

  • Ndepompei

    I’ll be going with Zeke over Gurley he should have a monster game

    He played 9 of 72 snaps. It was more than just game script. I’ll be hard fading unless something changes between now and then.

  • lukemiller42

    This is a Melvin game. I love James white too seems like the type of defense to force a lot of short passes

  • hautalak

    @lukemiller42 said...

    James white

    I never mind me some James White come Pats playoff time.

    Looks like this week we are going to have to make some tough decisions. Tough decisions and more lineups!!!

    It’s a market/fan base type of thing. They have no fans, early games are always the games that are smaller draws then the later games. Chicago and the Cowboys were the late games last week, Houston/Indy/SD/Balt were the early games. Pretty sure it’s not even the league picking the time slots, it’s the networks that have the right to choose and the will always put SD in the early slot, lowest draw in maybe the whole NFL.

    The Vikings were favored by 3 @ Philly. I can’t believe we got to spend a week listening to the team of destiny crap because we missed a FG by an inch. You guys should give NO’s a better fight then last time because you couldn’t play any worse but Philly isn’t going anywhere this year. Last year you didn’t get lucky, you won games.

    I wish Nagy would have tested you guys deep early and often, like I thought they would. You played tight coverage and it would have changed the whole game. Deep passing game would have opened up everything and it was there to be had. Philly’s weakness is always big plays in the passing game. I wish you guys would have straight up beat us instead of what happened, be easier to swallow. Or I wish Nagy would have just let Min win so none of this would have happened.

    I’m out here collecting cans because your team couldn’t win at home as the biggest home favorite. 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

    You will be a better person in the end for it Squid. Growth experience my friend. Whatever you lost, add a zero to it. Had a few teasers too on top of Bears and the over. Just took to long for the Bears to get aggressive.

    Mack is going to be heavy chalk too. I don’t think he’s had 2 big games in a row. On paper and in cash, he should be a lock. But his big games are in bad matchups and/or blowouts. Both Dal/Hous were bad on paper matchups and the plan going on was to run the ball, the blowout was secondary. I got a feeling he’s a fade but the numbers suggest otherwise.

    BIF- Arians would be a great hire for you guys.

    I think you are right about something more to the story, but if we don’t hear about him being in the dog house, you play him. Legit 20 plus pt ceiling of KC does it’s thing and jumps out early. I didn’t know he played 9 snaps, felt like 0.

    Remember what we were saying last week about teams playing their studs in the playoffs?

  • deeebo

    vikings were favored by 4.5 against us – not sure if the line shifted but positive thats what it opened at. Saints lone should go down – either way we won’t get spanked like we did earlier but we will lose. I knew we had a shot at beating the bears because that team was over hyped all season going against garbage teams. i knew that 6.5 spread was gonna make everyone confident in that ML easily hitting. Idk much about dfs strategy but i know about football and betting lol. either way saints will beat us this week but dont think we lose by 40+ like during the season. i hope im wrong

    Hopping off so soon? ;)

    And did you get the icing on the cake last week with a work league and Bears victory?! Either way I hope that Eagles win benefitted you nicely. And I think you’re getting the hang of DFS strategy just fine!

    SD has to play 6-7 DB’s because of injury. NE has a top 3 run blocking O-Line. This game has Sony M written all over it. You would have to assume White being covered by a D back instead of a LB, that limits his upside. On paper, Sony should get a 100 yds easily and Devlin has some sleeper appeal. I could see BB running FB dive a lot. Even think Burkhead in play. Awful matchup for NE’s WR’s, ideal matchup for their run game.

  • deeebo

    and agreed you guys should have went at our corners early in the game instead you guys did dump offs and stupid wrs screens against a defense that was playing way too aggressive. if you guys would have took shots down the field on those double moves – no matters who’s in mills or maddox they’re all biting on that double move – mitch would have had a field day but instead you guys reverted to short passing bs and running and cohen. which didnt work out lol. seems like a terrible game plan to me against our trash secondary.
