Jeff Collins

Owner/Director of NBA/MLB & NFL Analyst      

The simplest way to describe Jeff Collins is he's a guy who loves sports, numbers, and competition. This started for him as a kid and grew over the years as he played basketball in high school and worked as a ball-boy for the Golden State Warriors. The numbers really started to become a passion for Jeff after high school as he got into coaching and began studying the sports from an analytical perspective.

Jeff has been one of the elite fantasy sports players for years now. Before DFS, he competed in the high stakes season-long leagues like the FFPC and experts leagues such as the FSTA NFL Experts Draft on SiriusXM. As prize pools and live finals started to grow a few years ago on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings, Jeff shifted his focus towards learning everything he could about DFS. After feeling confident about his skills and the measurement of his results, he felt that attacking live finals would be where he had the biggest edge…he was right. A couple weeks after making it a goal of his to qualify for his first live final, Jeff won a qualifier to the FanDuel 2015 Playboy Basketball Championship on one of his three $25 entries. Since then, he's qualified 16 times for live finals and has performed well, with a 5th place finish in the 2015 WFBBC ($30,000) and an 8th place finish in the 2015 WFBC ($75,000) among his results.

JeffElJefe (his DFS name) is known for his off-the-board contrarian calls often landing him on 1% ownership of players in tournaments. An example of this was in 2015 when he won two FanDuel WFBC tickets ($100,000 value each) on the back of a 1%-owned Charcandrick West against the tough Broncos defense. He plays the chalk players when it makes sense, but is always looking for a reason to pivot.

"Jefe" ("the boss" in Spanish), as he's referred to by friends and people in the community, worked for RotoGrinders as a broadcaster and writer until his move to FantasyGuruElite. He still does work for the guys over at StatMuse to provide them with feedback on how to make their product better for DFS players. Collins joins Tommy G, Kevin Adams, and John Hansen to form one of the most dynamic groups in the industry.

 Jefe's NBA Playoff Rundown - 5/8
Posted by Jeff Collins on Tuesday, May 8, 2018 - 16:08

Injuries: None

In the playoffs since we’re dealing with very short slates you can play anyone that’s a solid part of the playoff rotation, but this article will cover my favorite plays. Don’t feel like you can’t use someone that isn’t mentioned here. 

 

Slate Notes

This slate is very unique in that it has the two best teams in the NBA playing as huge favorites in series-clinching home playoff games. It’s best to break these games down with two perspectives: 1) targets for if the game stays competitive, and 2) targets if it’s a blowout. If
