 DFS NFL Cash Game Breakdown: Week 7
Posted by Jeff Mans on Sunday, October 21, 2018 - 12:59

It’s happening. Whether you realize it or not, it is happening. The “it” that I am referring to is your education of DFS NFL. During the preseason, I mentioned this is the Miyagi Dojo of daily fantasy sports. We teach you by showing you the process. Each week, I outline the basics of how the slate sets up and what the expected game scripts are...

 DFS NFL Cash Game Breakdown: Week 6
Posted by Jeff Mans on Sunday, October 14, 2018 - 12:58

Don’t look now, but we are straight ballin’ this season in cash games so far. I know we’ve only had one “easy” week so far, but what matters is being ahead of that payline. We’ve been able to do that each of the last four weeks, which is what they call in the business a “streak.” Streaks don’t last forever so a letdown is bound to come eventually. But, we will keep on trucking and stick with the process marching forward. 

I hope all of you regular readers of the Cash Game Breakdown were able to read the Cash Game Lineup Review article that I posted this week. This piece reviewed not only my lineup from this past week but also the entire process of locking in each piece of the lineup. I hope this peek behind the curtain will help you guys understand how deep our thought process needs to be, even after we settle on the player pool for the week...

 Cash Game Lineup Review: Week 5
Posted by Jeff Mans on Monday, October 8, 2018 - 21:05

Ask and you shall receiver should be our new motto here at Fantasy Guru and Guru Elite. You guys have been pretty emphatic that you wanted a cash game recap article over the last few weeks and so here it is. I cannot commit to this every week simply because I took on too much of a workload on a daily basis and won’t be able to fit all of this in each week. But you have my word that I will try and do this several times this year on BOTH winning and non-winning weeks. I appreciate all of you who asked for this article and who are honest and serious about getting better.

 DFS NFL Cash Game Breakdown: Week 5
Posted by Jeff Mans on Sunday, October 7, 2018 - 12:58

Enough is enough. It feels like every week I am writing an intro to this article trying to directly state what our rules of engagement are for profiting in daily fantasy football. Then, I spend a few hours in our DFS NFL Chat Room and I become genuinely depressed. I get that some of you want to add your own spice or flare to your lineups each week. There is nothing wrong with that…unless you try and blame me when you lose. I am not taking that shit. Not now, not ever. I’m here to help you get better and find the formula to make you profitable. Let’s revisit a couple key elements to this before moving on to this week...

 DFS NFL Cash Game Breakdown: Week 4
Posted by Jeff Mans on Sunday, September 30, 2018 - 12:58

We are never done learning in DFS. The moment that you think you have it all figured out is the same moment you allow an opponent to gain an advantage on you. Last week, we smashed. Quite honestly, I don’t know if we can get any better than the Calvin Ridley call the rest of the season. That’s not to say we won’t try or we won’t win. Because we will and well, we will. But I’ve already had a few ask me, “who is this week’s Calvin Ridley?” The answer is nobody. I’m not going to waste time chasing the plays of weeks past and neither should you. Each week brings us new challenges, matchups and opportunities, and that needs to be our complete focus. So let’s get to it...
