 DFS NFL Playoff Writeup: Super Bowl 53
Posted by Jeff Mans on Saturday, February 2, 2019 - 20:00

There is a song that I love from the Broadway musical Hamilton called “One Last Time.” The song takes us through the final days of George Washington’s presidency and how his exit would set a precedent for the country for years to come. It’s a similar feeling for me as I begin the final DFS NFL article of the season. 

So maybe Super Bowl 53 won’t have as much historical impact as the end of the nations first presidency, but for us DFS players, it’s as close as it gets. This is our last chance to make that money in daily fantasy football this season. Or maybe just until the DFS AAF starts…stay tuned.

 DFS NFL Playoff Writeup: Championship Round

There have been a lot of lessons learned this NFL season. One that constantly needs to be reinforced though is exactly what I was reminded of last week. Don’t let groupthink sway what you absolutely know. We put in a lot of work all week breaking down teams, players and matchups. We do this so that we can gain an edge on our opponents. Then what happens? Popular opinion makes its way onto social media, radio, podcasts and television. These opinions force doubt into our minds about the conclusions we’ve made independently. This is an exercise that occurs in so many areas of life, but in DFS, it costs us money.

Normally, I really dislike two-game slates for fantasy purposes, but this one is as good as it gets. For the first time ever, the top four offenses in the NFL are playing for the right to meet in the Super Bowl. These potent offenses offer us quite a bit of options in building lineups this week. Once again, I will be building multiple lineups this week and swinging for that GPP fence. Let’s get to it!!

 DFS NFL Playoff Writeup: Divisional Round
Posted by Jeff Mans on Friday, January 11, 2019 - 20:45

Last week was an emotional roller coaster for me. It started out great as the Colts marched right down the field against the Texans and built a 21-0 lead. But the late rash of catches by Keke Coutee at the direct expense of lock button #1 DeAndre Hopkins was not ideal.

The injury to Sebastian Janikowski at the end of the first half in the nightcap on Saturday crushed any chance the Seahawks had of beating the Cowboys in Dallas. But lock button #2 Ezekiel Elliott balled out, and the minimal shares of Ed Dickson made me feel good and had me in striking distance going into Sunday’s games...

Nothing good ever truly ends. I told you this in the Week 17 Cash Game Breakdown, and hopefully, now you know what I meant. Just because the 2018 NFL regular season has come to an end, it doesn’t mean our opportunities to make significant profits from the football season has too. We’ve got several opportunities starting this week to pad our bankrolls. Here are a few things to do this postseason to grab your share of these proceeds...

 DFS NFL Cash Game Breakdown: Week 17
Posted by Jeff Mans on Sunday, December 30, 2018 - 12:58

Nobody ever tells you that the journey is always the best part. It doesn’t really matter what it is we’re talking about, but secretly, we all love the grind. Sure, there are up and downs, drastic ones at times, but when it is all over, oh, how we miss it so. 

This is my seventeenth intro to the Cash Game Breakdown this season, and in looking back, I realize that most of them, like the start of most of my SiriusXM shows, involve me venting about a certain topic. I suppose this one will be no different. 

But instead of my usual bitching, I really just want to tell each and every one of you, thank you. Whether you like me, hate me, enjoy the article, don’t care for it or just use it as a placeholder until something you like better gets posted to the site, I really appreciate you taking the time...
