 DFS Monday-Thursday Writeup: Weeks 5-6
Posted by Kevin Adams on Monday, October 9, 2017 - 17:00

Being a disciplined DFS player in terms of bankroll on management and game selection goes a long way to your long-term success and sustainability. Unless you have very deep pockets and look at DFS as pure entertainment, I would recommend taking a similar conservative approach to these 2-game slates.

This is a pretty fun two-game slate with the debut of the number two draft pick, Mitch Trubisky going tonight along with the return of Sam Bradford (28 FP in week one). Thursday’s game features two QBs coming off of monster fantasy performances, both Cam Newton and Carson Wentz finished as top 5 QBs for week 5 and are now neck and neck for the season. Wentz is QB7 (23.78 FPPG) and Cam QB8 (22.97).

 Benny's Week 5 DFS Recap
Posted by Benny Ricciardi on Monday, October 9, 2017 - 10:52

Each week I take a look at what worked and what didn’t in DFS to see if we can notice some patterns or trends. Hopping on patterns or trends before other people do is a great way to get a leg up on the competition and cash some big tickets. Here is what I saw from Week 5.

Chalk QBs not getting it done

For the second week in a row, we do not have one QB over 10%-owned, making it to the top 10 of the Milly Maker on DK. Brian Hoyer was on the first and second place roster as well as a few others. We had a Brissett roster, a few Cam rosters, a few Dak rosters, but not one roster with the chalk Aaron Rodgers play, despite him throwing three TDs and leading the comeback

 Jeff Mans Weekly NFL Recap: Week 5
Posted by Jeff Mans on Monday, October 9, 2017 - 09:23

As many of you already know, I don’t miss anything when it comes to the NFL or fantasy football. This is mostly because I watch every single snap of every single game every single week. I have hard drives full of every game that I go back and reference whenever there is something in question. I don’t do all of this for my health, quite the contrary. I do this for all of you. So that when you spend your time and/or money with us here at Guru Elite you will always be in the know.

So, every week once the dust settles I will take my pages of notes from the day of football and put them into proper seasonal and daily fantasy context right here. If you have ANY questions about any game, team, player or situation don’t ever be afraid to reach out and ask.

This was a good week. Sure, it was excruciating to navigate but as all of the dust settles I know that it was a productive week for the Elite Mafia. It feels like the days of knowing what the NFL landscape will be at the end of the year are over. It is all about survival these days. We don’t simply hope to avoid injuries anymore, we all will suffer injuries. Injuries will impact our seasonal teams, our favorite teams and our DFS lineups. If you’re the type of person that gives up when the going gets tough, you’re in a lot of trouble in today’s fantasy football market.

 Vlad's Values - Week 5
Posted by Vlad Sedler on Friday, October 6, 2017 - 16:58

Bye week season has arrived. That means smaller DFS slates and tougher lineup decisions for our season-long squads. DraftKings sure didn’t help matters by removing SNF from their main slate. Injuries crushed some of our lineups last week (Dalvin Cook, Julio Jones, Chris Carson) and we’re hoping for some better luck in that regard in Week 5...
