 Tommy G's Conference Championship DFS Rundown
Posted by Tommy G on Sunday, January 22, 2017 - 09:13

Last week of NFL, #EliteMafia. Only a two game slate so as always, we suggest you be conservative with your bankroll. We have combined the @MagicSportsGuy and @TommyG write-ups into one “hybrid” write-up that will let you who we are playing in our Cash and GPP line-ups. 

 

QB

Aaron Rodgers (OK for CASH) – 33.75 DK points last four, obviously in play in ALL formats.

Matt Ryan (OK for CASH) – Facing a weak Packers secondary and at home with a 33.5 team total. Yes, please.

Ben Roethlisberger – Tommy G GPP play. At $5.8k on DK, he will open up cap space, be low owned and the Pats have given up big numbers to top 14 QBR QBs this season.

It’s a special playoff version of Stat Pack! I will go team-by-team and breakdown three (five!) key statistics with a forward-looking view. The attempt here isn’t so much to provide atypical game recaps, but to provide rich context about the games that may not be obvious.

Instead of writing the column alphabetically by team, I changed the format a bit to look at each game. Here is the Championship Round Stat-Pack:

 

Green Bay at Atlanta Falcons

Packers

  1. Aaron Rodgers has posted a 7:1 touchdown-to-interception ratio, thrown for 699 passing yards, and averaged 9.2 yards per attempt in sev

 Benny's Divisional Round Preview

Seattle Seahawks @ Atlanta Falcons

Vegas: Falcons -4.5, O/U: 51.5

Atlanta brings their high-powered second ranked DVOA offense to this home tilt against the 10th Ranked DVOA defense of the Seahawks. These two teams played earlier this season with Seattle winning at home 26-24. This time the Seahawks defense is without Earl Thomas and that is a huge loss. Throw in the change of venue and it is easy to see why the Seahawks are the underdog. The Seattle defense has been stingy all year with QBs scoring the fourth fewest fantasy points against them, running backs the 6th fewest, and tight ends the 5th fewest. Wide receivers are middle of the pack against them and that is the best way to attack this defense. Most teams would not be able to, but this Atlanta offense has been clicking on all cylinders. Matt Ryan is fairly priced on DK at $7000 and I think he goes a tad under owned this week. Without Earl Thomas playing center field, the Seahawks can get beat deep which is why I think Julio Jones and Taylor Gabriel both make decent targets for a big downfield catch. You can attack the Seahawks deep without Thomas and I would bet the Falcons take more than a few shots down the field. I also think Mohamed Sanu is a sneaky play here. The weakest part of that Seattle secondary is Jeremy Lane, who will be matched up in the slot most of the game on Sanu. Sanu is cheap and could be a big upside play as well. I am not a huge fan of the TEs for Atlanta and think the WRs will do most of the damage through the air. You still have the two headed RB monster of Tevin Coleman and Devonta Freeman. Both guys are pretty cheap today, especially on DK. Coleman has performed very well in games Atlanta has won and Freeman is the more explosive of the two. They will split carries, but the sheer volume of run plays means both are worth a look. Neither guy played all that well the first time around, but that was in Seattle, where the Seahawks are tough to beat. I expect both RBs to have a better showing this time around I prefer Freeman, but it can honestly go either way depending on who gets the touchdown(s).

Seattle Seahawks at Atlanta Falcons

Seahawks

  1. This year alone, Russell Wilson averaged 23.41 fantasy points per game at home (1.62 passing scores and 273 passing yards per game; 8.47 yards/attempt) versus 17.29 points per game on the road (1.0 scores and 254 yards per game; 7.28 yards/attempt).
  2. As a team, the Seahawks’ averaged 28.4 offensive points/game at home (0.88 win percentage) versus a lowly 15.9 points/game on the road (0.38 win percentage).
  3. Paul Richardson has out-snapped (98:84) and out-targeted (11:10) Jermaine Kearse since Tyler Lockett went down in Week 16.
  4. Russell Wilson’s red-zone (inside of the 20-yard line) target distribution this year is as follows: Jimmy Graham (18), Doug Baldwin (17), Kearse (16). No other receiver has more than five red-zone looks.

 Vlad's Values: Divisional Round
Posted by Vlad Sedler on Friday, January 13, 2017 - 13:26

If you’re having difficulty constructing lineups this week, you’re not alone. The divisional round this year is a tough slate. With so much variance and a low margin for error on this four-game slate, I’ll primarily be focusing on building GPP lineups, with only about 20% of my money in play on cash games. (edit) Though as I’m writing this piece, I’m feeling more and more confident about the slate.

Most people seem to be on the same page (at least the people I talk to) in terms of liking the Patriots to win handily, the Falcons and Chiefs to win tough home battles and folks being completely up in the air about how the Packers-Cowboys game is going to go. GB-DAL has the highest implied total of the weekend (52.5) with the Cowboys currently favored by 4.5, a line that would be a lot closer if Jordy Nelson didn’t have broken ribs and was able to play. Game stacking this one in the Quarter Milly Maker is certainly a viable option, and that’s probably the only place I’ll have Randall Cobb. I’m going to take a stand and not have crazy exposure to him this week. Cobb will likely be the highest owned WR due to his price and three-TD performance in the Wild Card game.
