 Week 2 Preseason - Saturday Slate
Posted by Graham Barfield on Saturday, August 19, 2017 - 16:58

For all preseason NFL slates, I’ll be focusing heavily on player usage while intertwining ways readers’ can research and build teams. Especially in the first two weeks of preseason, starters typically play little -- if at all -- and the edge lies in attempting to predict usage. Talent and matchup should encompass perhaps 5-10% of your preseason NFL DFS research while predicting usage, opportunity, and simply following news on positional battles should make up 90-95% of your time.

Some of my likely core plays will show up in red text.

 Friday Week 2 Preseason DFS Plays - 8/18
Posted by Benny Ricciardi on Friday, August 18, 2017 - 16:31

QUARTERBACKS

  1. Trevone Boykin - He had a beast of a game last week and should be in line for another. He threw 12-15 for 189 including a 77-yard TD pass. What I like though is he also ran for 31 on 4 carries including a TD. In preseason, we are not looking for tons of points, but the dual threat QB who can get us 20-30 yards rushing is huge.

 Don’t Draft Le’Veon Bell
Posted by Ray Flowers on Friday, August 18, 2017 - 11:30

We do not follow the herd at Guru Elite. If you're looking to punch the clock, to merely do what everyone else does, you're in the wrong spot. If you're willing to pull back from the norm, to consider different points of view, then you've found the place you need to be. For my first edition of the free Coffin Corner column, I’ll tell you why taking Le’Veon Bell over Antonio Brown in the first round is a mistake. I really don’t see how you can read the situation any differently, despite the widespread belief existing that Bell is easily the second-best player on the draft board after David Johnson.

The best of the best are part of SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio (Sirius 210, XM 87). We spend hour after hour, day after day, talking fantasy sports on the channel, trying to help you all to be the best you can be. So, there’s not a better group of folks to participate in a draft with if you’re looking for a challenging couple of hours. Twelve teams, a PPR setup, and we’re off. How did the Oracle’s team turn out? He wrote a diary during the draft explaining his thought process throughout.

 2017 BARF Fantasy Football League
Posted by Ray Flowers on Monday, August 14, 2017 - 18:18

The last two years, a group of fantasy aficionados have descended upon San Francisco to participate in BARFBay Area Rotisserie Fantasy – for fantasy baseball. The 2017 football season will be our first foray into that sport. So how did the 12 person, superflex league play out this past weekend? There were tremendous selections and spotty ones. Drinks of soda and hooch (the draft was at a bar in S.F. – thanks to Tod and The Wreck Room). Shirts of unicorn’s and of Team Oracle. Yes, it was a heck of a Saturday in San Francisco. Here’s what went down.

 Week 1 Preseason Thursday Main Slate
Posted by Graham Barfield on Thursday, August 10, 2017 - 15:30

Oh, yes. NFL DFS is back! Well, sort of. It’s third- and fourth-string players -- but it’s football nonetheless.

For all preseason NFL slates, I’ll be focusing heavily on player usage while intertwining ways readers’ can research and build teams. Especially in the first two weeks of preseason, starters typically play little -- if at all -- and the edge lies in attempting to predict usage down the depth chart. Talent and matchup should encompass perhaps 5-10% of your preseason NFL DFS research while predicting usage, opportunity, and simply following the news on positional battles should make up 90-95% of your time.

My likely core plays will show up in red text.

 Hall of Fame Game Slate (Updated: 8/8)
Posted by Benny Ricciardi on Thursday, August 3, 2017 - 16:58

It is finally back boys and the lobby is filled with preseason NFL DFS action. I love it. Now, the best way I can explain preseason NFL DFS to you guys is the stock market. During the day, when the market is open, everyone trades. This is like the regular season for NFL DFS. Everyone more or less has the same information, because so many outlets are covering the breaking and important news in depth. It doesn’t matter whether you are sophisticated investors, big bank, or an average Joe with an E-Trade account. Whether you are a fantasy expert or a novice player. Almost everyone is operating off of perfect information, because they are saturated with football takes from every angle during the season. Trades are fast and marked correctly. Lineup swaps and adjustments are done as the news breaks. Everyone has at least a pretty good idea of what the fuck is going on...
