 Vlad's Values - Week 15
Posted by Vlad Sedler on Friday, December 15, 2017 - 16:58

It’s our shortest Sunday slate since the bye weeks ended, as we’ve got two games on tap for Saturday. More than half of the games on the 11-game slate involve over/unders below 42 points, with most game stackers and GPP players focusing on the Steelers-Patriots matchup featuring a rather predictably high 53.5 Vegas total. It feels as though values are more difficult to come by this week, and many of us will have to take stands on a couple higher-priced players over the others, including...

 Vlad's Values - Week 14
Posted by Vlad Sedler on Friday, December 8, 2017 - 16:58

Week 14 is unique in many ways. It will be the first time since September that the main slate on FD and DK will be in sync, as FanDuel is not including the Sunday night game (BAL-PIT). They do have an interesting tourney they are hosting: their $4M Fan Championship -- a $250 entry that pays a million bucks to first place. If you don’t typically play at the level but have felt like giddying up just once this season, this here’s the spot. Other uniqueness in the mix this week with the Saints-Falcons game in the rearview now includes...

 Vlad's Values - Week 13
Posted by Vlad Sedler on Saturday, December 2, 2017 - 16:56

It’s the final week of the regular season in season-long leagues, and we soon shall welcome fresh fish to the DFS fray with open arms. We’re officially out of the weeds (bye weeks), which means the regular Sunday slate is a monster one – 13 games on DK, 14 on FD, which includes some fun Sunday night hammer action with the Seahawks hosting the team with the league’s best record (the Eagles) with the front-runner for league MVP (‘grats on the royal engagement!).

A large slate with no bye weeks means...

 Vlad's Values - Week 12
Posted by Vlad Sedler on Friday, November 24, 2017 - 09:49

This week, it’s a 12-game slate (11 on DK) with several games projected to be one-sided affairs so predicting game script will be ever more important. The Patriots are 15.5 favorites over the Dolphins, the Steelers are favored by two touchdowns against the Packers on Sunday night, the Eagles’ line against the Bears at home is currently 13.5 and there are a few others lines currently set at eight points or more (KC -10 vs  BUF, ATL -9.5 vs TB, CIN -8 vs CLE). There appears to be very few cheap RB punts worth risking for cash games this week, and with no Le’Veon Bell on the DK main slate, we’ll likely see a big chunk of ownership gravitating towards Kareem Hunt in a get-right spot with a blessed matchup and Todd Gurley and the Saints’ RBs (Ingram/Kamara) in the week’s most anticipated and chalky matchup. The options at WR and TE seem plentiful this week, but many of our favorite plays are on teams projected to crush (Cooks/Gronk, Jeffrey/Ertz, Hill/Kelce, Julio, Green) so it will be vital in figuring out which of these teams’ opponents will be able to at least put up a fight. Of course, this group of studs have stud QBs throwing them the ball (well, with the exception of Dalton) and some of them can do their fair share of damage in two-to-three quarters, but if the games become blowouts early, it really vacuums out the upside of some of these options.

 Vlad's Values - Week 11
Posted by Vlad Sedler on Friday, November 17, 2017 - 16:59

It should be a fun 11-game main slate (12 games on DK) with the contest likely to garner the most DFS exposure taking place in Mexico City. It’s the Patriots taking on the Raiders with a Vegas total that has moved up 4.5 points since open (50 to 54.5). The Patriots actually stayed in Denver to practice and get further acclimated to the elevation (Mexico City is 2000 feet higher than Denver), while the Raiders decided to stay in NorCal and won’t get their fill of wet burritos and other extra-curricular activities until they arrive on Saturday. Not getting acclimated earlier will likely show on the field, especially for a secondary that won’t be able to keep up with Cooks and company...
