    Just out of curiosity how many of those games did the teams only have 1 kicker? Also I’m thinking for cash it is still probably the better play to go with both right?

    I condensed all of them into one kicker, since that’s our situation today. Most of them were already that way. Dan Carpenter nearly made it two years in a row inside the top six scorers in the HoF game, on two different teams. Hard to do.

    The thing with a HoF kicker is they don’t dud. You’ll get at least a PAT, and probably a cool 5 points or so (5.5 is the average; 5 is the median). The thing is that the ceiling is around 9 points. DSTs and skill position players can put up 20-25, even in these silly games.

    It’s fine if you want to play one in cash (which tends to have a higher money line than GPPs in these games, by the way). I just wouldn’t get carried away if you care about cracking 10 FP.

    Theo Riddick signs w/ the Broncos.

    I could be crazy, but this pushed Devontae Jackson, Khalfani Muhammad, and Devontae Booker up my board. Somebody’s getting cut sooner rather than later. Time to figure out who.

    With David Williams I’m not as sure that he’s duplicative of Riddick, and I’m not as attracted to him in the first place since he’s less of a receiver. You absolutely gotta score or catch balls to matter in this game.

    Play Zaccheaus or lose $.

    A dirty little bird told me Kurt Benkert served for two years at UVA as QB to Olamide Zaccheaus, where he was jointly responsible for much of the man’s sizzle reel.

    Dan Quinn and Julio have both expressed eagerness to see Zaccheaus on the field. Camp reports have been superlative, yet he should still be presumed to be behind Hardy and Gage on the roster bubble. I’d expect plenty of him and a good 3 quarters of Benkert, plus or minus half a quarter.

    WRs—all WRs—bust at incredibly high rates and are the most important and volatile properties to own in fantasy football. Nobody’s a sure thing. I’d still say this is as good a tip as you’ll find.

    Anyone on Brian Hill?

    He is one of the RBs I’m debating swapping a kicker out for

    Why do people keep trying to make me think about Brian Hill?

    He doesn’t catch passes, as a rule. Not a guy I care to dwell on, particularly in this game.

    UPDATE: Hill (undisclosed) participated in Monday’s training camp practice, Jason Butt of The Athletic reports.

    ANALYSIS: Hill appears to have returned to full health after exiting practice early last week due to an undisclosed injury. “The 2017 fifth-round pick is reportedly showing well as a pass catcher in training camp, which could bode well for his usage in 2019”. It’s also worth noting that Hill currently resides above Kenjon Barner and Qadree Ollison on the Falcons’ depth chart, though preseason depth charts should be taken with a grain of salt.

    This is probably the most degenerate DFS lineup Ive ever pieced together. Absolutely no idea what I’m doing… i got a good laugh out of finding out everyone is the same price about 10 minutes into my intial lineup construction…

    then i look and see how many sharks mass entered the $5 main event and had another good laugh.

    My roomate once wagered $1,000 on the XFL title game. This is the DFS equivalent to that IMO.

  • PaperStacking92

    Man alot of people will be out tonight including some players people think are gonna play tonight

    If you mean that it’s softer action that makes it easier to win than regular-season DFS if you’re paying any attention at all, then yeah. Playing easy games where you’re less likely to lose your money is hella degenerate.

    only playing one lineup (mostly cash) have been on both kickers since yesterday but leaning toward swapping out Travechhio for Qadree Ollison. He seems to be getting a lot of talk from Falcons guys on twitter that he should get a decent amount of work. Hope I don’t regret the decision. I’ll feel a lot more comfortable if it comes out that Ito Smith isn’t playing at all, if that is the case I think we see a decent amount of Hill and Ollison and I think Ollison is the better player of the two and will play earlier in the game with in theory better O-lineman.

    I’m pretty heavy on Ollison but I’m not thrilled about it. Quinn has a propensity to put errybody in the pool in these early preseason games. Ito was more or less in the same position last year as Qadree’s in now and he got 3 touches for 1 total yard at the Jets in Preseason Week 1 (i.e., next week).

    Qadree’s nowhere near a sure thing. Kickers definitely have a higher floor.

    Your rants in the PGA threads are enough. Dear God please don’t spew anymore of your bullshit.

    No Booker, eh? Uh oh. Gotta scramble to switch a few lineups now.

    Essentially we’re betting money on guys who will be driving trucks in a few weeks.

    Yeah, as much as there’s the edge of avoiding players that’ll be inactive, this is definitely degenerate betting. We’re betting on players to essentially be at the right place at the right time, but the window is much smaller than in NFL. That being said, I’m all for it

    Preseason NFL and NBA are the best and usually reward the people who dig up the most information. I love it.

    According to NickiJhabvala on twitter
    “”(player-popup #devontae-booker)Devontae Booker”:/players/devontae-booker-35607 out here in full uniform fielding punts.”

    Probably just returning punts tonight. But could be sneaky since they are going to try and trade him.

  • realphipps

    Gotta be a fine line there for a guy you want to move.

    You wanna showcase him but one serious injury and you’re paying the man.

  • Dfspacman

    Is Booker playing?

  • PaperStacking92

    Wonder who eats his usage if Booker is strictly gonna just be doing punts? Looks like Khalfani Muhammad and Devontae Jackson should eat. David Williams could be sneaky

    I hope so, I have Jackson in my main lineup and Jackson and Muhammed in my 1 off GPP lineup
