NFL Week 7

Below are some players worth targeting this week on DK and FD main contests. The goal with this article is to remove the bias from your decision when building your lineup. There is some information about that player, without giving away who the player is. You can reveal the players at the end of the article to see who they are and the specific prices for both DK and FD. Hopefully this will remove any bias you have towards players and think about matchups, stats, and ownership when building your lineups.

QB

The first QB we will look at is under $7,500 on DK & under $8,500 on FD. This QB is at a higher price than usually found in this article. This QB was on fire coming into last week, and had one of the worst QB performances of the week. I think that will drive his ownership down this week, even though the opposing defense is atrocious. When building your lineup, you can count on this guy to get you 25+ fantasy points.

The second QB we will look at is under $6,500 on DK & under $8,000 on FD. Talk about trending in the right direction. This QB has only one game where he as scored under 20 fantasy points. ONE. And he still has a low price tag. Couple that with a fantastic matchup this week against a very soft pass defense. Locking this guy in your lineup allows you to pay up for some studs.

RB

The first RB we will look at is under $7,000 on both DK & FD. Following a very down week last week, and buried down the list on salaries; this RB will be low owned. Prior to week 6, He had found the end zone in three straight games. Look for him to get back on track this week, against a weaker rush defense.

The second RB we will look at is under $6,000 on DK & under $6,500 on FD. There is no doubt there is some risk involved with this play. More of a GPP play. Given the price, I don’t mind plugging this player in. He has had back to back weeks of single digit fantasy point production. The flow of those two games played a huge role in abandoning the run. The matchup this week is phenomenal, and well worth the plug in your lineup, especially if he scores a TD (double digit fantasy points).

WR/TE

The first WR/TE we will look at is under $6,500 on both DK & FD. This WR has solidified himself as this team’s WR1. He has at least 5 targets in each game this season, but only two TDs so far this season. The opposing defense gave up 4 TDs their last time out. This should be an under the radar play.

The second WR/TE we will look at is under $6,000 on DK & under $7,500 on FD. If there is one lock in this article, this is it. The matchup is fantastic. He has double digit targets in half the games so far this season. Since the QB play is unstable on this team, this WR will likely be low owned. Load up on this guy, he is going to have a monster week for his price tag.

The third WR/TE we will look at is under $6,000 on both DK & FD. The price tag on this one doesn’t make sense, it is way too low. He has four straight weeks of double digit fantasy points. Targets of 9, 7, 8, & 8 over the last four games. He is getting involved in the offense. And this week, he is going against a defense who ranks near the bottom of the league in pass defense. Plug this one in, and pay up for a stud or two.

We hope that this article helped you approach your fantasy plays this week a little differently. Good luck this week and be sure to give us a follow on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook for the latest updates!

NFL Week 6

Below are some players worth targeting this week on DK and FD main contests. The goal with this article is to remove the bias from your decision when building your lineup. There is some information about that player, without giving away who the player is. You can reveal the players at the end of the article to see who they are and the specific prices for both DK and FD.

QB

The first QB we will look at is under $7,000 on DK & under $8,000 on FD. This QB is averaging just under 20 points on DK and FD this year. In week four, this QB got off to a great start but fizzled towards the end of the game. With a week of rest, and the soft defensive matchup this week, look for 20+ points this week, with ease. Meaning you are looking at 3x value with upwards of 4x value.

The second QB we will look at is under $6,000 on DK & under $8,000 on FD. This QB is averaging over 25 points per week over the last four weeks. This play makes a lot more sense in DK, given the huge price difference when compared to FD. He should see 5x value in DK, while we are looking at 3x or 4x value in FD.

RB

The first RB we will look at is under $6,000 on both DK & FD. This RBs touches have increased each week, including in the pass game. The matchup is fantastic, with the opposing defense allowing north of 170 yards per game to RBs. And at this price, why not plug him in. A nice floor of 10-12 points, and go get yourself some studs in your lineup.

The second RB we will look at is under $5,000 on DK & under $6,000 on FD. This RB is off to a rocky start this year. But his usage has increased over the first few weeks of the season. The matchup is fantastic this week. The price tag is the selling point here. You should see around 10 fantasy points, and if this guy goes for a TD; thats just an added bonus.

WR/TE

The first WR/TE we will look at is under $6,500 on both DK & under $7,500 on FD. This WR gets the targets, with upwards of 10 in each game he has played so far. This will be a stack with one of the QBs in this article. The matchup is great, with the opposing defense ranking in the bottom half of the league in passing.

The second WR/TE we will look at is under $6,000 on both DK & under $7,000 on FD. He has only played two weeks so far this year, as he has been dealing with injury. I don’t think this player is on many people’s radar just yet, but that won’t last long. Neither will this price tag. Once again, another great matchup for this WR. This is fantastic value.

The third WR/TE we will look at is under $6,000 on both DK & FD. This guy went OFF in week 5. He had his coming out party. And now everyone will have this guy on his radar. But the circumstances this week cannot be passed up. He should see an increased usage (if thats even possible) with one of the other WRs out. And let’s not forget they are going against a defense is horrendous against the pass.

We hope that this article helped you approach your fantasy plays this week a little differently. Good luck this week and be sure to give us a follow on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook for the latest updates!

NFL Week 5

Below are some players worth targeting this week on DK and FD main contests. The goal with this article is to remove the bias from your decision when building your lineup. There is some information about that player, without giving away who the player is. You can reveal the players at the end of the article to see who they are and the specific prices for both DK and FD.

QB

The first QB we will look at is under $7,500 on DK & under $9,000 on FD. This QB has not produced lower than 23 points in DK or FD so far this season. He also provides fantasy production both through the air and on the ground. His down week last week (for his standards) has moved his salary back down, which is way under where it should be. The matchup this week is one that you should target, with potential to give you 5x value on DK and upwards of 4x value on FD with ease.

The second QB we will look at is under $6,000 on DK & under $8,000 on FD. The first three weeks were pedestrian for this QB, but he showed out Week 4; going for over 27 points in both DK & FD. He is going against a defense that ranks near the bottom of the league defending the pass. This move is more of a GPP play, with room to pay up at other spots in your lineup.

RB

The first RB we will look at is under $6,500 on DK & under $7,500 on FD. This RB used to be at the top of the league, what seemed like a couple years ago. He has averaged just under 15 points per week in DK & FD. This opposing defense is dismal against the run this season. This is a nice value play.

The second RB we will look at is under $6,000 on DK & under $6,500 on FD. This RB has had a horrible start to the year. The matchup is good this week but he is so far down the list, I don’t think many will play him. A recent change in play callers, could prove to be what this player and offense needs to start clicking. This will be a low-owned guy, and could the difference for you in the final standings.

WR/TE

The first WR/TE we will look at is under $6,500 on both DK & FD. This WR has been average just under 20 points per week in both DK & FD. This will be a nice stack with one of the QBs in this article. I really love the value of this play, where this guy can go for 4x value easily.

The second WR/TE we will look at is under $6,000 on both DK &FD. His first two weeks, he averaged double digit targets. This followed a week three that saw him leave the game early. Fast forward to this week, and many may forget how involved he is with the offense. His price is still to cheap for his targets. Expect this one to be a low-owned player.

The third WR/TE we will look at is under $5,000 on DK & under $6,000 on FD. You read that right. Look how cheap this play could be and allow you to pay up for studs at other spots in your lineup. His floor should be at 10 fantasy points this week. The matchup is phenomenal, the opposing defense seemingly cannot stop anyone. I have confidence in this play, with a chance to get 3x value with ease.

We hope that this article helped you approach your fantasy plays this week a little differently. Good luck this week and be sure to give us a follow on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook for the latest updates!

NFL Week 4

Below are some players worth targeting this week on DK and FD main contests. The goal with this article is to remove the bias from your decision when building your lineup. There is some information about that player, without giving away who the player is. You can reveal the players at the end of the article to see who they are and the specific prices for both DK and FD.

QB

The first QB we will look at is under $7,500 on DK & under $9,000 on FD. This QB is averaging 35+ points in both DK & FD over the last two weeks, and provides fantasy production both through the air and on the ground. His salary has been adjusted up in both but is still way under priced. He has a great matchup, likely to continue this output, with potential to give you 5x value on DK and upwards of 4x value on FD with ease. The opposing defense has been generous to QBs, giving up nearly 300 pass yards per game and upwards of 30 fantasy points to QBs.

The second QB we will look at is under $6,000 on DK & under $8,000 on FD. He is averaging just above 24+ points in both DK & FD through the last two weeks. The opposing defense for this upcoming week has not been able to defend the pass this season. The opposing defense is giving upwards an average of 400 pass yards per game. Look for this QB to build on the last two weeks. He should get 20-30 fantasy points, and at this price, thats great value when building your lineup.

RB

The first RB we will look at is under $6,500 on DK & under $7,500 on FD. This RB had a lackluster week three, but has a great matchup this week to get back on track. The week three performance can be blamed largely on the game flow . This opposing defense is dismal against the run this season. This price point make it hard to pass this guy up, and look for him to be low-owned since he had a very bad week three (single digit fantasy points).

The second RB we will look at is under $6,000 on both DK & FD. This RB has had an up and down start to the season. With a couple changes on the offense, look for this guy to get more involved. He is carrying the ball around 15 times a game already. The matchup doesn’t look great on paper, but that is because the first three games for this opposing defense the other teams abandon the run game. This will be a low-owned guy, and could the difference for you in the final standings.

WR/TE

The first WR/TE we will look at is under $6,500 on both DK & under $7,500 on FD. A theme with this article, players who’s matchup looks bad on paper, which could prove to be some low-owned opportunity spots for you. This WR has 4 TDs through the first three weeks. I like the streak to continue and another TD for this one. His price should be adjusted up, and will be soon. So jump in on this guy’s cheap price while you still can.

The second WR/TE we will look at is under $6,500 on DK & under $7,000 on FD. He has 5+ targets in each game so far, and has a great matchup this week. He has double digit fantasy points in both DK & FD in every week. Look for this WR to offer upwards of 4x value this week.

The third WR/TE we will look at is under $5,500 on DK & under $6,000 on FD. He is averaging just over 7 targets per game. He has yet to reach the end zone yet. This is will be a nice stack with one of the QBs listed in this article too. The matchup is favorable, and the price makes you want to consider this player which allows you to pay up at others.

We hope that this article helped you approach your fantasy plays this week a little differently. Good luck this week and be sure to give us a follow on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook for the latest updates!

NFL Week 3

Below are some players worth targeting this week on DK and FD main contests. The goal with this article is to remove the bias from your decision when building your lineup. There is some information about that player, without giving away who the player is. You can reveal the players at the end of the article to see who they are and the specific prices for both DK and FD.

QB

The first QB we will look at is under $7,000 on DK & under $9,000 on FD. This QB is averaging 30+ points in both DK & FD, and provides fantasy production both through the air and on the ground. His salary has been adjusted up in both but is still way under priced. He has a great matchup, likely to continue this output, with potential to give you 4-5x value on DK and upwards of 4x value on FD.

The second QB we will look at is under $6,000 on DK & under $8,000 on FD. He is averaging just above 23 points in both DK & FD through two weeks. The opposing defense for this upcoming week has not been able to defend the pass through the first two weeks. This QB could see upwards of a 30 point fantasy performance. The only worry with this play is if they team gets up early, and abandon the pass game to run the clock.

RB

The first RB we will look at is under $7,500 on DK & under $7,000 on FD. This RB trending in the right direction. An increase in workload happened during week two, and continue to see this in week three. You can’t pass up this matchup. The opposing defense inferior, and look for this team to be up early and lean not he run game to close this one out. He should be close to 3x value in both DK & FD this week.

The second RB we will look at is under $6,000 on both DK & FD. This RB does not have the starting job, but has seen double digit fantasy outputs through each of the first two weeks in both DK & FD. The opposing defense this week has given up 120+ yards each of the first two weeks. This is a favorable matchup, and at the price, I really like this play, which allows you to pay up at the spots in your lineup.

WR/TE

The first WR/TE we will look at is under $7,000 on both DK & FD. He has been fantastic through the first two weeks. He has scored in each of the first two weeks, been targeted 5+ times in both games and near 100 receiving yards in each. This week offers an even more favorable matchup, with the opposing defense surrendering 250+ passing yards in each of the first two weeks. This game should be a shootout, which will increase fantasy production.

The second WR/TE we will look at is under $6,000 on DK & under $7,000 on FD. This WR is one of only two players to have double digit targets in each of the first two weeks. He is slightly more value in DK than FD based on the scoring difference (1 pt per reception in DK vs 0.5 pt per reception in FD). This player offers great value at the price.

The third WR/TE we will look at is under $4,000 on DK & under $5,000 on FD. This is a nice player to plug in your lineup and allow you to pay up at other positions. In week two, he saw nearly double digit targets and will continue to have this expanded role in week three. it is worth noting the opposing defense has been torched by TE so far this season. By Sunday, this will be a chalky play, but go ahead and eat it here to get those studs in your lineup.

We hope that this article helped you approach your fantasy plays this week a little differently. Good luck this week and be sure to give us a follow on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook for the latest updates!

DK Showdown BOS/MIA 9/19/20

With Miami up 2-0, this is a pivotal game for Boston. And let’s go ahead and address what everyone is wanting to know; Hayward’s status. It appears he is questionable for this game, and even if he plays, it will likely be with a minutes restriction. I would avoid him in your lineup for this one, but note that his return will impact others playing time and fantasy production.

So let’s take a look at some captain options.

Bam ($13,800) was outstanding for a second straight game, scoring 46 dk points in game two. I don’t see how Celtics can stop him, so look for him to continue this in game three.

Herro ($10,800) is a nice cheaper option for captain, if that’s how your lineup shakes out. He scored 30.8 dk points in game two, after 40.8 dk points in game one. He just tied Dwayne Wade with a franchise most, 10 straight playoff games with 10+ points as a rookie. Look for him to break this record tonight.

I have no problem with either of those options at captain, and would plug in the other at a utility spot for you. With Hayward’s return looming, I think the player this will impact the most is Brown ($8,600). I wouldn’t pay up for him in this game.

Dragic ($8,200) has been crushing it. He has one game below 30 DK points since the beginning of Aug; ONE. He offers you a solid floor and is a nice guy to plug into your lineup. Game one fo this series he scored 46.8 dk points, and followed up with 36.8 dk points in game two. that is still over 4x value for his salary.

Wannamaker ($4,800) has been a nice play for the first two games of this series, but his salary increased by $2,000 for this one. Steer clear of this play.

Crowder ($6,800) & Theis ($6,200) offer nice floors at their price, likely each going 20+ dk points at a minimum. That offers 3x value, with the upwards of 4x value.

DK Showdown MIA/BOS 9/17/20

If game one was any indication of how this series will be, buckle it because its going to be a good one!

So where do you go with captain in this contest? Tatum ($15,600) is by far the most expensive option, with Butler ($13,800), Bam ($13,200), and Brown ($12,900) to follow. In a way to construct a balanced lineup, I would target one of the following two players: Dragic ($11,700) or Herro ($10,500). Both went for 40+ dk points in game one. I do think Herro is a slightly more risky play at captain.

So building out the rest of your lineup. If you went with one of the two players I listed to target for captain, I would first make sure you grab the other as your first utility spot: Dragic ($7,800) or Herro ($7,000).

So if you went with those first two plays to start your lineup, you have an average just under $8,000 to fill out the rest of your lineup. Tatum ($10,400) had a GREAT game one, going for 67 dk points. that’s now three straight games at 60+ dk points. Go ahead and lock him in to your lineup. You’ve got a ton of scoring power in your lineup already and still have roughly $7,000 left for the final three spots.

I honestly don’t mind taking a flyer on Wannamaker ($2,800) in this one. He is cheap enough, that you can add two top guys in the lineup. He turned in a great game one going for 33.8 dk points. I don’t think he gets that in this game, but even 10+ dk points I would consider a win for this pick. Plus plugging him in your lineup gives you the ability to pick Butler ($9,200), Bam ($8,800), Brown ($8,600), or Walker ($8,200).

NFL Week 2

Below are some players worth targeting this week on DK and FD main contests. The goal with this article is to remove the bias from your decision when building your lineup. There is some information about that player, without giving away who the player is. You can reveal the players at the end of the article to see who they are and the specific prices for both DK and FD.

QB

The first QB we will look at is under $7,000 on DK & under $9,000 on FD. This QB turned in a great week one (25+ point performance on both DK and FD) , and provides fantasy production both through the air and on the ground. He has a great matchup, likely to replicate his week one performance, with potential to give you 4-5x value on DK and upwards of 4x value on FD.

The second QB we will look at is under $6,000 on DK & under $8,000 on FD. His week one performance was less than stellar, but managed to salvage the week in terms of fantasy. The opposing defense was shredded week one through the air to an inferior offense. This QB could see upwards of a 30 point fantasy performance. I really like this play for a few reasons: great matchup, should be low-owned and it allows you to pay up for other players.

RB

The first RB we will look at is under $6,500 on DK & under $7,000 on FD. This RB has high expectations this season. He has a favorable matchup this week, with the opposing team giving up 136 yards on the ground during week one, and surrendering 53 yards receiving to RBs. He should be relatively low-owned this week.

The second RB we will look at is under $6,000 on both DK & FD. He had a great week one against a tough run defense. He had 15+ rush attempts, 3+ targets, and had a multi touchdown game. He has a good week two matchup. Just watch as this guy could be a trendy plug & play guy this week.

WR/TE

The first WR/TE we will look at is under $7,500 on both DK & FD. He turned in a nice week one stat line: going for over 100 yards, 5+ receptions, and 2 TDs. This week offers an even more favorable matchup. Additionally, he would be a stack with one of the QBs in this article.

The second WR/TE we will look at is under $6,500 on DK & under $7,500 on FD. His week one did not live up to the expectations, only catching 5 of 9 targets; his salary has been adjusted down slightly from that performance. He is another great situation to turn in a great fantasy line. The opposing defense gave up 200+ through the air and 3 TDs. This player has the potential to go off on any given game.

The third WR/TE we will look at is under $4,500 on DK & under $5,000 on FD. He drew a tough week one matchup, but still gave up a serviceable fantasy stat line. He was targeted 7 times, catching four of those. He has a favorable week two matchup, with the opposing defense giving up 5 catches for 50+ yards during week one. At his price, it’s hard to pass up the potential here, and allowing yourself to pay up at other positions.

DK Showdown CIN/CLE 9/17/20

Week two kicks off with a divisional game between Cincinnati and Cleveland. The Browns are coming off an underwhelming week one game against the Ravens, while the Bengals played tough against the Chargers, losing at the end of the game.

So what direction do you go in this contest?

Burrow ($16,200) and Mayfield ($15,300) are the most expensive options for captain. I actually like pivoting off the QBs for captain and came back to them later in the lineup. One player that I WOULD target for captain is Mixon ($12,900). While he only had 69 rush yards on 19 attempts and one reception for two yard, I do expect him to do better. JK Dobbins went for two scores against this Browns defense.

So lets fill the rest of your lineup.

Burrow ($10,800) played well against the Chargers. I like him in this contest as well and wouldn’t mind stacking either AJ Green ($9,000) or Tyler Boyd ($7,000) with him.

So what is going on with the browns backfield. Hunt ($7,400) outpaced Chubb ($7,600) in week one. I don’t mind playing the RB from Cleveland, but which one? There is a great deal of risk here playing either of them. I personally would steer clear of this until we see what the usage is for a few weeks.

I like targeting Hooper ($6,800) in this lineup. He is a cheaper option. NJoku scored the lone TD during week one and is now on the IR. Hooper was only targeted twice during week one (against a tough Ravens defense).

I actually like plugging in one of the kickers during this contest. I can see a scenario where between 3-6 combined FGs are made during this contest. Siebert was a Brown during week one, and is a Bengal during week two. Parkey ($4,400) is set to see the kicking duties for Cleveland, while Bullock ($4,200) looks to be clear of injury and see the kicking duties for the Bengals.

PGA US Open Championship

I want to keep this as simple as possible, so each week I will give you 5-10 golfers worth targeting in your lineups.

For DK, since the average to spend on each golfer is $8,333 to make up the $50,000 salary, we will take at golfers to target above and below $8,000. On FD, the average golfer is $10,000 to make up the $60,000 salary, so we will target golfers on FD above and below $10,000.

The golfers will be divided into two tiers: Tier 1 (DK above $8,000 & FD above $10,00) and Tier 2 (DK below $8,000 & FD below $10,000).

Tier 1

Rahm ($11,000 DK & $11,800 FD) : While everyone will be high on DJ, I think Rahm is a nice pivot. 6th, 1st, and 4th. Those are the finishing spots for Rahm over the last three tournaments. He is should be considered a safe play to finish top 15, with a chance at winning!

Thomas ($10,700 DK & $11,600 FD): Thomas is a great pivot from DJ as well. He came storming back to make things interesting at the Tour Championship with DJ, but the starting difference of three strokes proved to be the the difference. I really like this play at well, eyeing a top 10 finish.

Morikawa ($10,000 DK & $11,100 FD): Can Collin win back to back majors? This may be the riskiest play on this list, especially at his price. He missed the cut at the Northern Trust but bounced back for a 20th place finish at the BMW Championship.

Berger ($9,200 DK & $10,700 FD): Berger has been on a tear since golf returned. Four top 5 finished. FOUR. Those are in addition to a 13th place and 25th place finish. He has been such a consistent play, and at his price, I don’t know how you can pass him up.

Tier 2

Casey ($7,900 DK & $9,800 FD): Paul has been up and down since golf returned. He had a great month of August. There is some inherited risk with this play given his price, but when you are building your lineup and can fit him in at the end, I don’t mind plugging in Casey.

Wolff ($7,700 DK & $9,600): It is surprising his price hasn’t adjusted higher. He has finished top 50 in the last six tournaments he played in, with a top 5 finish in there. You can play him with confidence, with the hopes of adding another to 20 finish.

Kisner ($7,600 DK & $9,000 FD): Prior to his 25th place finish at the BMW Championship, Kisner had back to back top five finishes. At the Tour Championship, Kevin finished 23rd. You have to go back two months to find a tournament where Kisner finished outside the top 30.

Munoz ($6,600 & $8,000 FD): After finishing in 8th place at the Tour Championship, Munoz is in a nice place to keep things rolling. He is trending in the right direction recently with top 20 finish at the Northern Trust Open. He is a nice golfer to plug in the lineup and allows you to get some higher priced guys.

Honorable mentions: Schauffele ($10,100 DK & $11,400 FD) and Hovland ($8,000 DK & $9,700 FD)

DK NBA 2 Game Slate 9/15/20

Denver came back to force a game 7 against the Clippers, while game one of the ECF between the Celtics/Heat start tonight. Below are some players to target on this slate:

Guards

Goran Dragic – PG ($7,300): Dragic has offered a nice floor (25 dk points) throughout the bubble. He should get 5x value , if not 6x. He is logging plenty of minutes, which should provide opportunities to fill up the state sheet. I prefer paying down here versus paying for Murray ($8,700) or Walker ($7,700).

Lou Williams – PG/SG ($5,500): Sweet Lou has the potential to go off on any night; he can fill it up. There is some inherited risk with this play as he has scored 20 or less dk points in 3 of the 6 games of this series. He is logging 20+ mins. I don’t mind plugging him in your lineup at this price.

Tyler Herro – SG ($5,400): Herro…what a rookie year. This bubble has been great for him. Look for him to continue what has has been doing. He has scored less than 20 dk points only ONCE since the beginning of August. And he is filling up the stat sheet; this provides a nice floor, even if he has an off not shooting.

Gary Harris – SG ($4,600): this is by far the riskiest play of the guards I listed. Since coming back, he has been logging more minutes but his scoring is inconsistent. I do look for him to get around 20 dk points tonight.

Forwards

Kawhi Leonard – SF ($10,400): Game 7. Expect Kawhi to show up and carry this team tonight, if needed. He has scored above 40 dk points in every game of this series, with three of the games over 53 dk points. I think you could expect 45-55 dk points as a realistic number tonight.

Jae Crowder – PF ($5,800): Jae Crowder scored over 31 dk points in the last four games. I do expect him to regress slightly in this series to 20-30 dk points. That would imply 3.45x – 5.17x value for him. I don’t hate that number. Plus, if you are one for storylines, maybe he looks for a little revenge against his old squad.

Michael Porter Jr. – SF/PF ($5,300): Porter has been up and down for dk points during the playoffs. Once again there is some inherited risk with this play (just as Sweet Lou), but offers the potential to go for 40 dk points on any given night. I expect his scoring to be around 25 dk points tonight, giving his value around 4.72x.

Centers

Nikola Jokic – C ($10,000): The Joker has been on a tear. He has scored above 50 dk points in all but the first game of this series, with three of those above 60 dk points. If Denver has any chance tonight, their offense will need to go through Jokic. I expect him to be 50+ dk points again. Consider him a lock tonight if you are willing to pay up.

Bam Adebayo – ($8,400): Bam had a down game in the final game against Mil, with only 21 dk points. Prior to that game, he scored 43+ dk points in 5 of the last 6. I like him to bounce back tonight with a 30+ dk point performance tonight.

Ivica Zubac – C ($4,800): This is the riskiest play for centers tonight out of those I listed, but provides an option if you pay up at other spots. He is averaging 22.2 dk points over his last three games. He should have a floor of 15+ dk points tonight.

DK Showdown HOU/KC 9/10/20

Football is back!!!

This should be a high scoring game. Vegas has the game line at 54.5. So even though the defenses can be a nice play in showdowns because of their price, lets avoid all together for this one.

Mahomes or Watson? They are both going to put up solid numbers…25+ for each. They are priced very high for captain and I just don’t see the paying up for either at captain spot, because the rest of your lineup will be high risk guys.

One player I like for captain tonight is David Johnson at only $11,400. a change of scenery could go along away. and without DHop, the targets have to go somewhere. Cooks is also marked as questionable. If he sits out, I like this play even better at captain (and also plugging in Stills ($4,600) into your lineup).

So if you plug in David Johnson at captain, you could grab both QBs (Mahomes $12,600 & Watson $11,800) in your lineup. This would leave yo with $14,200 or an avg or $4,733 remaining.

I would target one or both kickers tonight for your lineup. They are priced low (Butker $3,800 & Fairbairn $3,600), but offer almost guaranteed points (5-15).

if Cooks ($7,200) plays tonight, I don’t mind playing him. If he doesn’t, I like Stills as a cheaper replacement. Watkins at $5,800 and Hardman at $5,200; I would lean Hardman when looking at those two players.

Best of luck!

DK Showdown BOS/TOR 9/3/20

Game 3 of this series, with BOS up 2-0, this is a crucial game for TOR in this series. Pricing didn’t change much compared to game 2.

Kemba saw a slight bump in price ($13,500), while he didn’t have a great game 2 (compared to game 1). On the other hand, Jaylen Brown ($12,600) had a great game 2 and saw no price change. I like targeting Brown as your captain when building for this showdown.

I once again like OG ($6,400) and Gasol ($4,800) at their prices. If you plugged in those three, you have a great base for your lineup and still have an average of $8,733 for the final three spots.

Tatum ($10,400) had a FANTASTIC game 2 where we saw 55 DK points. I don’t mind him, although I do think we can expect his scoring to go down in this game.

Siakam ($9,600) and VanVleet ($9,200) are two players that don’t mind paying up for. With Lowry ($8,800) slightly cheaper with some inherited risk in this play.

At the end of the day, TOR needs to show up big in this game and get the W if they have any chance of winning this series.

DK Showdown MIA/MIL 9/2/20

Coming off another game one loss in these playoffs, do we see MIL bounce back again in Game 2?

There is no arguing, Giannis is a MUST in your lineup. The question is do you pay up ($19,500) as your captain or take him as a utility ($13,000). Giannis likely has a floor of 45-50 DK points, meaning at a captain spot, that’ll give you 67.5-75 points as a captain. The bad part is the lack of money you’d have remaining ($30,500) for the final 5 spots (avg of $6,100).

The smart, conservative play here is Giannis as a utility spot.

Back to the captain spot. the next four players are all who I would consider: Butler ($15,000), Middleton ($14,700), Bam ($14,100), and Dragic ($12,600).

Butler had an OUTSTANDING Game 1, with 53.5 DK points. for the captain price, I actually would skip him and go with a cheaper play, and get Butler in a utility spot (at only $10,000).Middleton and Bam are the next two on this list, at relatively the same price, it comes down to personal preference. Both have their risks. If MIA tries to force the ball out of Giannis, Middleton could be inline for another big game. and finally, Dragic has been on a great, over the last night games scoring 30+; with game one of this series scoring 44 DK points.

One player I would consider at captain at a cheaper price is Herro at only $9,900 captain price. He only scored 16.8 DK points in Game one, but has been above 20 DK points since the start of the bubble.

A cheap option to plug into the lineup is Wesley Matthews at only $3,600. He scored 14.8 DK points in game one. If we can get the same out of him game two, I’ll take it!

One more player I would consider plugging in is George Hill at $5,000. With Bledsoe marked as a GTD, I like playing Hill either way. Even if Bledsoe does play, he may be limited.

DK Showdown BOS/TOR 9/1/20

Celtics took game one of this series. It was truly a team effort from the Celtics, with Tatum and Smart both finishing with a team high 21 points. As for Toronto, the team struggled fro the field as a whole.

So where do we go for the captain spot? Tatum is by far the most expensive at $15,000. Followed by three Raptors, Siakam at $13,800, Lowry at $13,500, and VanVleet at $13,200.

I think the answer to who to play at captain comes from one of the next two guys: Kemba at $12,600 or Jaylen Brown at $12,000. Kemba is coming off a nice game one, for DK purposes.

A couple guys I wouldn’t mind targeting below $6,000 is Anunoby ($5,400) and Gasol ($5,000). By taking one (or both), allows you to get some higher priced guys from this showdown. Anunoby has been consistent to say the least; with at least 20 DK points in each of the last 7 games. Gasol is a slightly more risky play but feels like he will get at least 20 DK points tonight.

So if you’ve built your line so far with Kemba, Anunoby, & Gasol, that leaves an average of $9,000 to use for the last three spots. You can grab some studs for the rest. For instance, you could go Tatum ($10,000), Lowry ($9,000) and Brown ($8,000) and have $0 left. If you like VanVleet ($8,800) over Lowry, I don’t mind that sub.

DK Showdown MEM/POR 8/15/20

Dame is a LOCK. The question is, do you pay up ($18,000) for captain (1.5x) or take the $6,000 discount and plug in as a utility

While Dame will likely be high scorer from this game, I would much rather plug him in a utility spot. So the question is…who do you play at captain?

MORANT = CAPTAIN

Morant is coming off a a triple double game against MIL, where he didn’t shoot well. I will gladly pay $14,700 for a floor of 40 DK points (60 in captain role).

So Morant at caption ($14,700) and Dame in utility ($12,000) leaves you with $23,300 for the remaining four spots. He may be chalky today but Tolliver should get the nod at PF today and at a price of $3,200…I don’t know how you pass that up. Eat the chalk on this one.

That will leave you with $20,100 for the final three spots.

Nurkic ($10,000), McCollum ($8,800), & Valancinuas ($8,600) are the top plays left. All come with some level of risk. Ranking the players in this group in the order I would play them as follows: Valanciunas, McCollum, Nurkic.

Moving to the next tier of players: Anthony ($7,200), Brooks ($6,600), Trent Jr ($6,200), Clarke ($5,800), Whiteside ($5,400), & Anderson ($5,000). Even with Tolliver expected to start, Clarke should play a solid number of minutes. For these price points, I am leaning towards Trent Jr, Anderson, and Clarke.
