Week 18 FanDuel 1-7-21

1/7/2022
​How will injury situations in San Francisco and Arizona affect the plays this week? Who's worth waiting on in Green Bay? Why should you ​not ​be scared of chasing Devin Singletary's climb up the salary ladder? And which game looks most inviting for stacking?

Week 18 DraftKings 1-7-21

1/7/2022
Jonathan Taylor and Cooper Kupp once again sit well above their positions in both salary and shine. But both probably can't fit in your cash lineup this week. So which is the better value? Playing either guy requires finding some low-cost upside to fill out the lineup, and Jared and Matt might have different ideas on where best to seek that savings. There's agreement on the top game for stacking, however, as well as some sleepers across positions who just might sneak in underplayed. QB ......

Week 18 Preview 1-6-21

1/6/2022
Joe Burrow has told us that the Bengals don't plan to play their key guys this week. Other teams are leaving us guessing. Can we use Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams or any other Packers starters? What about the Eagles and Cowboys? COVID has knocked out a couple more key players -- Justin Fields and Diontae Johnson -- and left us with other situations to monitor. And questions remain with who the 49ers will play at QB and RB. We're tracking injury situations, talking sleepers and assessing...

Week 17 FanDuel 12-31-21

​Does Trey Lance factor in as heavily on FanDuel this week as he does on DraftKings? And how different do Jonathan Taylor and Cooper Kupp look over here?

Week 17 DraftKings 12-31-21

12/31/2021
​Good luck avoiding Trey Lance in cash on DraftKings this week. But what do we do with him in GPP lineups? Is there enough value to fit Jonathan Taylor ​and​ Cooper Kupp into lineups, or must we decide between the 2 kings of Week 17? Here's the rundown ...

Week 17 Preview 12-30-21

12/30/2021
​It's Championship week in most fantasy football playoffs. That means it's time to overthink everything. Who should we worry about coming off COVID? Who are the fill-ins that belong in our Week 17 lineups? And who are the land mines we should try to avoid? Jimmy Garoppolo's thumb injury puts Trey Lance in the spotlight. Lamar Jackson is back ... but still might not be ready to play. Rex Burkhead, Michael Carter and Damien Harris are coming off big games ... but are any of them usable this...

Week 16 FanDuel 12-24-21

12/24/2021
​We don't usually care about cheap QBs nearly as much on FanDuel as we do on DraftKings. But this week finds Jalen Hurts and Joe Burrow aligning high ceilings with attractive price tags. That can help us get Cooper Kupp and his $9800 salary into lineups. And a bevy of $5k-$6K options at RB just might make it tough to avoid selecting 3 of them.

Week 16 DraftKings 12-24-21

12/24/2021
​Antonio Brown is back, and he's cheap. But does that make him a lock for DraftKings lineups? Justin Jackson looks like a potential DFS centerpiece at $4200 if Austin Ekeler remains on the COVID list. But does the wealth of options at RB keep him from being a "must" play?

Week 16 Preview 12-23-21

12/23/2021
​COVID situations, injuries and a devastating Week 15 leave us with at least as many questions as answers heading into the semifinals of the fantasy football playoffs. But answers are our specialty here. How should you approach Thursday Night questions? Who should you play over Patrick Mahomes if Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill don't make it back? Who benefits if Austin Ekeler remains out? Who can you turn to for upside at TE? Let's hit on all of it. Thursday Night Football: San Francisco...

Week 15 FanDuel 12-17-21

12/17/2021
​​Welcome to the Post-Urban Meyer Era in Jacksonville, where we're all wondering whether the firing of a head coach can unlock RB James Robinson. That plus a tremendous matchup sure makes him attractive across DFS formats on FanDuel this week. It also doesn't hurt Robinson's popularity that this is a rough week at RB otherwise. There's no shortage of options at WR, though. QB shines a spotlight on Aaron Rodgers in Baltimore, but some lower-priced passers might sneak in at low rostered rates....

Week 15 DraftKings 12-17-21

12/17/2021
​​A cruel -- or adventurous? -- Week 15 schedule has taken nearly all of the attractive RBs off the main DFS slate. So does that make it difficult to find RBs you like for your lineup ... or easier to focus and pay up at other positions? We've got attractive value options at QB, WR and TE to offer further help -- though there's 1 TE coming off a pair of huge games and towering over this slate. Does that make him a must or a fade for GPP use? QB ... 2:04 RB ... 7:01 WR ... 13:51 TE ......

Week 14 FanDuel 12-10-21

12/10/2021
​It's easy to like the $8K QBs on this week's FanDuel main slate. The question will be who is liked the most as lineups are set. That just might help guide decisions more than usual. Leonard Fournette tops Austin Ekeler as a value here, with his price further behind than it should be. Who else can be rostered at too-cheap rates?

Week 14 DraftKings 12-10-21

12/10/2021
​​Austin Ekeler looms large over the DraftKings main slate this week, with Keenan Allen out. Can you fit another expensive RB with him? Is there room for Tyreek Hill, Stefon Diggs or any other top-shelf WRs, or is TE the position to spend up for this week. Travis Kelce and George Kittle are tough to question.

Are you fighting to get into the fantasy football playoffs? Have yours already started? Either way, it's getting to crunchtime for this season, making every lineup decision even more important. We have injury situations to sort out with Elijah Moore, the Dallas backfield, San Francisco RBs and more. Is it time (or past time?) to stop relying on Kyle Pitts?
