 Tommy G's Super Bowl DFS Rundown
Posted by Tommy G on Sunday, February 4, 2018 - 18:30

FIRST OF ALLL…Our NBA, NHL and MMA products have been ABSOLUTELY ON FIRE!! I don’t need to tell you how fucking amazing Jeff Collins, Draftcheat, Benny and Thad are on the NBA side, while NHL and MMA have been a fucking ATM machine. Go on Twitter or in the chatroom and ask the other subs about how NHL and MMA have been going. It's FUCKING COMICAL how much better we are than the rest of the industry. NHL is literally free money with Nick and Kenneth and Madlab is 19-4 on the last two MMA cards to start the fucking year. Football is over, so I’m gunna do you a solid this week…

 @MagicSportsGuy's Super Bowl LII DFS Breakdown
Posted by Kevin Adams on Sunday, February 4, 2018 - 18:30

Both FanDuel and DraftKings have $1,000,000 to first tournaments for the big game. On FD, they are running the $9 “Big Game Bowl,” which has you select 5 flex positions (same $60,000 cap). The 5th flex position gives you 2x points, which ads a little (very little) layer of strategy. It really is a play for rake, as it will entice suckers like me to multi enter the same lineup and simply move around the players to that fifth slot. We all know playing a...

 Jeff Mans Super Bowl Breakdown
Posted by Jeff Mans on Sunday, February 4, 2018 - 18:29

I am putting this together while held up in my hotel room here in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the host site of Super Bowl 52. This is my fifth consecutive Super Bowl appearance, more than either Tom Brady or Bill Belichick. I am very fortunate to be able to hob-knob, talk and hang out with the best football minds in the world. I have spent most of my time here bitching about the insanely cold weather, which has bordered on inhumane. But I will take a break from my passionate hotel bar discussions with NFL elite and social media cries about the weather in order to bring you, the Elite Mafia, one last triumphant week of fantasy football until we reconvene in August...

 DraftKings Big Game NFL Showdown IDP Breakdown
Posted by Justin Varnes on Friday, February 2, 2018 - 17:00

This postseason saw the premiere of the NFL Showdown (single-game) slate on DK, where we finally got to play defensive studs like Cameron Jordan, Telvin Smith, and Harrison Smith (all of whom came up big and were rostered by winning lineups in cash games and tournaments). With the scoring on DK benefitting the big plays (sacks, INTs, etc.), we’re fading the 5-6 tackle per game guys. Luckily, we get a 3pt bonus at 8 total tackles (solos = 1, assisted tackles = 0.5) so the elite tacklers still can hang with the big play boys.

 DFS NFL Championship Round Breakdown
Posted by Jeff Mans on Saturday, January 20, 2018 - 18:30

There is no such thing as a proper cash game lineup in a two or four-game slate. Don’t listen to anybody that says otherwise because chances are they are not really cash game players at heart. That is not to say that you shouldn’t play in 50/50’s or H2H’s in smaller slates. You still have a much better chance of winning in cash games than you do in a GPP. So, if you’ve been struggling or are on a very tight bankroll, it still makes sense to play cash.

It’s been a very topsy-turvy NFL season, to say the least. Between devastating injuries to stars such as Aaron Rodgers, David Johnson, Odell Beckham Jr, etc and unexplainable falls in production such as late season Russell Wilson, mid-season Kareem Hunt and early season Le’Veon Bell, the football world failed to make sense for a while.

Then we get to last week where even in a very small slate we manage to absolutely smash on every huge performance. Yet, thanks to FanDuel’s lack of quality four-game tournaments, we had to settle for a good but not great return on our investment. Fortunately, there was plenty of action on DraftKings to ensure that our playoff work was worth the effort.

This week, we have our last real DFS NFL weekend of the year. Sure, we’ll find some form of DFS to play for Super Bowl 52, but single game DFS NFL just doesn’t feed the bulldog. So, we’ll give it a go here in the two-game slate, where we really don’t have many fantasy stars to choose from. This is a terrific thing for those of us who analyze matchups because the names that pop off the page are not well-known performers.

The key this week is to...

 Conference Championship Kicker Recommendations
Posted by Mike Horn on Wednesday, January 17, 2018 - 10:16

Kickers averaged 7.5 FP in the Divisional Round.  The system again had pretty mixed results.  The two "Sits" were poor as a group, although one managed 10 FP.  The only "Neutral" was the 2nd highest scoring kicker this round (two weeks in a row a "Neutral" had the #2 score for the week).  "Marginal Starts" were pretty good but the "Starts" were done in by their teams scoring all TDs – although Stephen Gostkowski miissed a 53-yarder that would have pulled up the group average:
