Week 16 – DFS Recap

It was the touchdown that wasn’t for Kelvin Benjamin that really undid his fantasy day in Week 16. We saw a resurgence from the elder statesmen in the NFL with the likes of Larry Fitzgerald and Antonio Gates having huge days. And of course, a reality of this part of the calendar in the NFL…

Week 16 – DFS Stud & Value Plays

Quarterback STUD – Cam Newton (vs. Tampa Bay) Since Newton is coming off of a four touchdown performance, playing him again this weekend might be a very popular option. There’s a reason, though: Tampa Bay is 29th in DVOA against the pass and 21st in DVOA against the run. Newton had 32 pass attempts and…

Week 15 – DFS Recap

No complaints at all about the day Le’Veon Bell had, but Week 15 was the Todd Gurley show in Seattle. His 21-152-3 line easily won a lot of semifinal matchups this weekend, but clearly helped players succeed in their daily fantasy contests. Cam Newton had a huge day as well, responsible for four passing touchdowns…

Quarterbacks STUD – Case Keenum (vs. Cincinnati) The Bengals are allowing their opponents to play at the fastest pace in football this season, with 72.5 snaps per game on average. 34.9 of those plays are throws, which means Keenum should have plenty of opportunity to air it out at home on Sunday. His price is…

Week 14 – DFS Recap

Week 14 was Dak-tastic for owners of the Cowboys’ signal caller. He bounced back in a big way, averaging 11.1 yards per attempt on 30 drop backs, and throwing three touchdown passes. He can thank Dez Bryant and Rod Smith for long touchdown trots after receptions for improving his passing average, as the two combined…
