DFS Podcast: Week 11 FanDuel 11-16-18

​ With the Chiefs and Rams out of view on the NFL Week 11 main slate, it's Eagles and Saints and then everyone else. But we've got plenty of guys from other games that you should consider for your FanDuel lineups. Jared and Matt have some differing views on the safest bargain RB this week, as well as which top-shelf back should most draw your focus. And Matt might just be underrating the opportunity facing a certain young NFC North wideout. Here's the rundown ... Cash-game QBs ......


DFS Podcast: Week 11 DraftKings 11-16-18

With perhaps the most DFS-friendly matchup of all time (Chiefs-Rams on Monday night) off the main slate, we're focused pretty heavily on Eagles-Saints for options on today's show. But that doesn't mean we're ignoring other intriguing spots. We've got enough mentions from Titans-Colts and Jared's worried about playing too many, and then there's the Bucs-Giants game that's way more intriguing than it really deserves to be.​​ Here's the full rundown: Cash-game QBs ... 2:28 GPP QBs ......


Fantasy Football Podcast: Week 11 Preview 11-15-18

We'll all have to wait until Monday night for the biggest game of NFL Week 11, but there will be plenty more intrigue and questions to answer along the way. Are both QBs really upside targets in the nauseating Buccaneers-Giants matchup? Can Mitchell Trubisky outperform a tough spot against the Vikings? Who are the non-obvious plays from Eagles-Saints? And what's gonna happen at QB for the Ravens? Here's the rundown: Our favorite buy ... 00:36 Dallas Cowboys at Atlanta Falcons ......


Fantasy Football Podcast: What to Do With This Guy 11-13-18

​ A key WR injury creates some opportunity in the Rams offense but might only significantly impact the fantasy outlook of 1 other player. The long-awaited rise of the Tennessee offense has vaulted several guys into view for the fantasy stretch run. And we have a bunch of big RB performances to sort through. Listen to the end of today's show, and you'll hear about some team defenses that you might want to stash to help you close out a fantasy title run. Here's the rundown: The Cooper Kupp...


DFS Podcast: Week 10 DraftKings 11-9-18

DFS Podcast: Week 10 FanDuel 11-9-18

​ Does FanDuel's Week 10 pricing present a MUST play at QB or TE? Or both? Do you have to pay up into the $8K range to get tournament-winning upside at QB?

​ What goes into selecting the proper defense? Jared and Matt don't always agree, but they're happy to talk through the thought process. Then we have a key injury to a wideout that's knocking his QB out of starting territory, another star wideout in a new place and an offense that looked horrible in the 1st half but just might be ready for a turnaround.

DFS Podcast: Week 9 FanDuel 11-2-18

As Todd Gurley inches closer to eating up 20% of your budget, does he remain the top cash consideration at QB for Week 9? Is he even the top cash consideration in his own game?

Fantasy Football Podcast: Week 9 Preview 11-1-18

​ Demaryius Thomas switches sides for this Sunday's Broncos-Texans matchup, but he doesn't seem to carry any extra fantasy appeal. What is appealing? Saints-Rams. Patriots-Packers.

DFS Podcast: Week 8 FanDuel 10-26-18

​ At about $3,000 more in salary than our cash-game favorites at RB, Todd Gurley might finally be a starter to step over as you're building your DFS lineups this week.

Fantasy Football Podcast: What to Do With This Guy 10-23-18

The Carlos Hyde trade set DFS abuzz on Friday, but then the Raiders and Cowboys outdid that with the Amari Cooper deal. Does the move help Cooper's fantasy outlook this season?

Here's the rundown: ​The Amari Cooper trade ... 1:12 The new Jaguars backfield ... 8:15 Mitchell Trubisky ... 11:33 Lamar Miller ... 14:01 James White ... 16:15 Kenyan...


DFS Podcast: Week 7 FanDuel 10-19-18

Which main-slate game has a pair of #1 WRs we can pair up in a tournament lineup? Does Todd Gurley's move north of $10,000 push him out of lineups?

DFS Podcast: Week 7 DraftKings 10-19-18

​ Well, Carlos Hyde played for a different team when we recorded this. So you won't find any talk about Nick Chubb. But he becomes quite intriguing after Friday's trade. You will, however, find plenty of Jacksonville talk. And the Hyde trade doesn't change the positive outlook for T.J. Yeldon. You'll also hear plenty about what looks like 1 of this week's sneakiest upside fantasy games. Here's the rundown ... Cash-game QBs ... 3:10 GPP QBs ... 4:50 Cash-game RBs ... 10:52 GPP RBs ......


Fantasy Football Podcast: Week 7 Preview 10-18-18

We have some exciting QB streaming options for Week 7. We have some big-name QBs in bad spots. We have some usually boring wideouts that look like PPR starters.
