 Transition: Season-long to DFS
Posted by Vlad Sedler on Saturday, September 1, 2018 - 11:45

DFS football is truly an experience of extreme highs and lows. One minute, you’re feeling good. The DraftKings app is flashing green as you’re up a thousand bucks on your $80 in entries. Without warning, a chalky A.J. Green catches a fifty-yard pass in the end zone. You didn’t play him that day, and all that green drops back down to zero. A good and profitable Sunday can kick-start your week with an extra pep in your step in the office on Monday. A less than stellar one makes you question your lineup decisions and all the hours of research you spent that week. With the highly volatile nature of football and DFS football in general, it’s important to make the right steps and build our own process if we’re making the transition from season-long fantasy football to DFS...

 MLB Minor League Breakdown: Week 23
Posted by Vlad Sedler on Tuesday, August 28, 2018 - 14:30

Everyone loves a shiny new toy. In fantasy baseball terms, that means rookie hitters and pitchers that we fawn over and overspend for on the waiver wire.

Though some first-year hitters come out the gate red-hot, many of them inevitably hit major slumps that could negatively impact our fantasy rosters. Same goes for pitchers who step into the league with a never-before-seen arsenal, only to get exposed their second time around the big leagues. The term ‘hitting a rookie wall’ is a widely-used idiom for a reason.

 Vlad's FAAB Values: Week 22
Posted by Vlad Sedler on Saturday, August 25, 2018 - 23:01

Many questions come through my twitter feed this time of year asking to compare Player X and Player Y for the rest of the season. Simply put, ‘rest of season’ is no longer applicable once we hit August. As we head into September, all player comparison and analysis should be done on a week to week basis. There is no merit in recommending one roster bubble player over another without looking only at the week ahead.

 Vlad's Hitter Breakdown - 8/21
Posted by Vlad Sedler on Tuesday, August 21, 2018 - 14:10

A mammoth 15-game slate is something we have not seen in a while, with many of the last few Tuesdays and Fridays having at least one game earlier in the day. Plenty of teams around and above five projected runs, and with a full slate of games, nothing will be too chalky when it comes to hitters. So long as the weather holds up in Coors, you’ll see Rockies and Padres with some guys at double-digit ownership, as well as hitters from the Brewers (vs Sal Romano), Cubs (vs Jordan Zimmermann), Blue Jays (vs Dylan Bundy), Diamondbacks (vs Felix Pena) and of course, those red-hot Athletics (vs Ariel Jurado).
