 DFS Monday-Thursday Writeup: Weeks 1-2
Posted by Jeff Mans on Monday, September 11, 2017 - 17:52

Do I love two and three game slates in daily fantasy football? No. So why do I analyze them and play them so frequently? Because a key element of DFS is that when you have a significant advantage over your opponent(s) you need to seize such opportunity and make the most of it.

Let’s face the facts. We’re better at DFS NFL than most people out there. Maybe that is cocky, maybe its brash but what else do you want me to say? I watch the industry minute by minute and I see folks playing three Cardinals in their lineups. I see them using garbage players in cash games and safety valves in GPP and all I can do is chuckle warmly and thank the good lord we’re on the winning team.

It is in this spirit that I bring you the DFS NFL Monday-Thursday Breakdown. Yes, these plays are going to be completely off the grid sometimes and be risky as hell. But it takes a very specific approach to dominate small slates in DFS NFL.

There will be numbers, viewpoints, comments and concerns, as he takes a look around the entire week of action and lets you know, what you need to know, so that you can continue your domination in the game of fantasy football. Here’s his take on Week 1.

 DFS NFL Recap: Week 1
Posted by Benny Ricciardi on Monday, September 11, 2017 - 11:58

Every Monday I look through the contest I played to try to gain some insight into how to build better rosters going forward. I try to see what the guys who won did. Is there a pattern to all of the rosters that finished on top? Did they go chalky? Did they stack? How did they allocate their salary cap? All of these things can help give us a little edge when building our own lineups. What I am going to do here each week is give you my thoughts and observations on how things went on Sunday in terms of importance for us as NFL DFS players. Getting better at this game is a process. Studying past performances is how we can improve our process to get better results in the future. With that in mind, here are some observations.

Cheap QBs are a Good Way to Build High Scoring Rosters

 Jeff Mans Week 1 Recap
Posted by Jeff Mans on Monday, September 11, 2017 - 04:26

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.

There are two very different groups of people among the fantasy football community. For the record, I don’t belong to either because I have just seen it all that I don’t react the way many of my people do to winning and losing. I think it comes back to the old adage (since July 2017) of Knowing Vs Hoping.

What up Elite Mafia! Can’t believe it’s been a year since getting this site started. Very thankful to all the writers, contributors, staff and especially the subscribers for taking us from an idea and a dream to being one of the most popular DFS sites. If you were with us from the beginning, you have to be impressed by the amount of content we have on the site now. The addition of Jeff Mans, Ray Flowers and Ted Schuster has really taken our content to the next level. OK, enough with the sentiment, it’s time for football...

 DFS NFL Cash Game Breakdown: Week 1
Posted by Jeff Mans on Saturday, September 9, 2017 - 17:57

Welcome to the Guru Elite DFS NFL Cash Game Breakdown! In case you haven’t noticed, we are absolutely stocked with talented writers and contributors this NFL season, which means Guru Elite is truly your one stop shop for anything you need in either seasonal or daily fantasy football.

I have been planning on what to include in this writeup for weeks now. I’ve gone back and forth as to what format to use and hope that each of you can appreciate what I have resolved. I could sit here all week and type out 10,000+ words on a variety of players for you and discuss why you should consider them for your cash game lineups. But instead, I think that it’s better if I show you the data outliers for each position before I tell you who should be in play this week.

Since this is week one, we really don’t have much data to consume in terms of what is happening on the field this season. So, I am relying on my knowledge of the systems and how they matchup in order to select our best cash game plays this week. I’ve been a notorious fast starter in DFS NFL in the past, and if Thursday night was any indication, we are all in for a very, very big season...
