Week 5 NFL Plays

By: Keith Hall on October 10, 2015

Here we go! Week 5 is upon us and it’s time to have a great weekend!  I would like to touch on two things before we get into this weeks cash game players.  First, if you are down on the season don’t freak out yet.  The first quarter is big on learning a lot of what’s going on and the biggest thing to understand is that there is still a lot of football to be played.  Second, I believe roster construction is going to play an even bigger roll this week than normal.  With so many value plays opening up… Read More »

What we learned from Week 4

By: Keith Hall on October 5, 2015

Week 4 was a very interesting time for DFS.  The craziest thing was that the Millionaire Maker over on DraftKings was determined not because of a great play made by the Seattle defense, but by suprisingly enough, NFL referee’s not knowing what the rule was.  Yes, when K.J. Wright batted the fumble by Calvin Johnson out of the back of the end zone at the end of the game, the play was dead, and Detroit should have been rewarded the ball at the spot of the fumble.  Due to the ruling on the field, the Seattle defense was credited with… Read More »

Week 4 NFL Picks

By: Keith Hall on October 3, 2015

Well, it’s time to turn our attention to what should be another great NFL Sunday!  It shouldn’t be as crazy as last week, but definitely not as bad as it was in Week 2.  As always, we do have some injury news and notes to keep an eye on for Sunday morning, but most of the guys I’m focusing on for cash games have their roles already determined. Injury Notes: Watch out for Drew Brees.  There is talk he will go, but with a QB and a shoulder, I always want to make sure.  He is off limits for cash,… Read More »

Week 3 NFL Recap and Learnings

By: Keith Hall on September 29, 2015

Wow!  What a weekend!  I don’t think I have seen a higher scoring NFL weekend since I have been playing DFS.  To give you an idea of the kind of weekend it was, our fearless leader, Bryan, posted a 235 in our season long league.  This isn’t a league with some crazy scoring either.  It’s a full point PPR, one QB league that has a flex.  He did this by the way, while setting his lineup, in Italy, on his anniversary trip. As far as DFS is concerned, I saw teams putting up crazy numbers in both cash games and… Read More »

Week 3 NFL Picks

By: Keith Hall on September 26, 2015

Ah. The time is upon us.  The time is here to truly forget last week completely and start building rosters for tomorrow.  First, we have to put all the information that we’ve gathered together and make sense of all the information we’ve tried to dissect over the last five days. I am going to apologize up front if this seems shorter than normal.  I am being rushed today.  I’m sure some will enjoy the “quick and to the point” nature though. Quarterback:  Cash: There are a couple options here.  For myself though it is going to really depend on price… Read More »

Do you have what it takes?

By: Keith Hall on September 26, 2015

Lets face it.  We all have seen the commercials for FanDuel and DraftKings this football season.  Like them or not, they are driving the industry at the moment.  New players are coming in daily and playing DFS for the first time this weekend.  I love the growth of the industry at the moment because whenever one of those commercials is playing, I take a certain since of pride in what is possible.  I also get offended when people comment that there is no skill involved.  You know that guy in the bar that plays Fantasy football with his buddies and… Read More »

Week 2 Recap, Thoughts, and Learnings

By: Keith Hall on September 22, 2015

Ouch! That was rough.  I have never seen such a crazy weekend in the NFL.  Sure, we get a game here or there, but not 15!  Today, as we turn the page from Week 2 into Week 3, I am going to stress the importance of bankroll management.  Chalk it up.  Don’t try to make it up all this week.  I’m going to touch on my thoughts for every game, hit on some injury notes, and how it applies to DFS.  Then, we turn the page. Denver – 31 @ Kansas City – 24 Peyton Manning is still a viable… Read More »

Week 2 Cash Game Plays

By: Keith Hall on September 19, 2015

I have mentioned a number of times this week on how to approach what happened last week with so many players have multiple touchdowns.  Mostly, that advice is geared towards tournaments.  Remember, we’re going to apply each situation differently and not chase the points.  Week 2 has some some very nice matchups that we are going to load up and take advantage in our cash games. Quarterback: Stud: Drew Brees Brees is going against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that just made Marcus Mariota look like Joe Montana.  The Saints are in a great spot to get their offense back on… Read More »

If Only I Saw That!

By: Keith Hall on September 19, 2015

Another weekend is upon us, and with that brings another great time to dive into another topic that I feel is important in having long term success in DFS.  Actually, it’s a two part topic.  Game Theory and Chasing.  There are a ton of tools, as DFS players, we have at our disposal when it comes to predicting who will do what and how games will go.  You have heard me say before and I will state it again, the first place you should start, is with Vegas.  From here, instead of a fork in the road, we have more… Read More »

Week 3 CFB Throwdown

By: Keith Hall on September 17, 2015

It’s finally here! No, I’m not talking about NFL, or the end of MLB, or NBA pre-season.  I’m talking about the end of non-conference season in College Football!  I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of seeing McNeese State playing Ohio State.  I’m ready for competetive football!  Then again, I might still pumped up from my Sooners beating Tennessee in double overtime last week.  I might be biased, but that easily one of the best games of the year so far.  Starting next week we get into the conference season which is what makes CFB so great!  This week… Read More »
