Posted by Thad Houston on Saturday, December 22, 2018 - 16:32

What’s up y’all? It’s Week 16 of the NFL season! The bye weeks are all done, so you know what that means? There are lots of defensive units for us to choose from. As always, let’s go over the “boxes” we’re looking to “check” with our team defense:

•home favorites

•facing an opponent with an implied run total less than 18.0

 TE Breakdown: Week 16
Posted by Benny Ricciardi on Friday, December 21, 2018 - 12:33

Last week was a fantasy bloodbath at the tight end position. The best guys all underperformed and the best plays were guys you probably had no way to get to with any analysis. Travis Kelce went 7/61 for 13 points and frankly if you had him that wasn’t a horrible day. George Kittle was not even the highest scoring TE on his team with that honor going to Garrett Celek who had one of the best weeks at the positions with just 2/61/1.

 Vegas Game Report - Week 16
Posted by Tom Brolley on Friday, December 21, 2018 - 11:00

Making final lineup decisions can be absolutely excruciating (clearly, you’re reading this article!). For the last decade, I’ve factored Vegas lines and player props into my final decisions when I’ve had particularly tough lineup decisions (of course, Guru projections are the top factor). I’ve decided I shouldn’t keep this info to myself any longer.

This article is designed to be a one-stop shop for everything you need to know about this week’s games with a Vegas spin. Understanding what Vegas thinks will happen on gameday will help us make better-informed fantasy decisions. I’ll give my spin on each game in the “Brolley’s Report” section – which will focus on a combination of game scripts, trends, tape study and stats. I’ll also throw in my favorite player prop picks in the “Brolley’s Bets” section, available exclusively to Fantasy Guru Elite Football Betting VIP members (subscribe today).

The Colts enter this week as 9-point favorites so they could ride Marlon Mack in the second half of a juicy matchup against the Giants this week...

 Fantasy Draft Plays - NFL Week 16
Posted by Thad Houston on Thursday, December 20, 2018 - 16:30

Even though a lot of what you read in this article can be used across multiple sites, I’m going to focus on how to come up with the “secret sauce” on Fantasy Draft. NEVER TRIED Fantasy Draft? Try it here!

“Big Ben,” I mean, Col. Andrew Luck (22.51 Fantasy Draft points per game) is playing at home this weekend. Whatever. Different guy, same concept...

 Week 16 WR Breakdown
Posted by Vlad Sedler on Thursday, December 20, 2018 - 00:30

Welcome to the Week 16 DFS Wide Receiver breakdown. The first look below contains a mid-week list of players to consider at the position. Listed are DraftKings and FanDuel prices along with thoughts on projected ownership, matchup and cash vs. tournament play. Note that players listed aren’t just players I recommend – some of them are fades in tournaments. Note that bye week season is officially over - only players from the 12-game main Sunday slate are listed.

 Week 16 RB Breakdown
Posted by Ted Schuster on Wednesday, December 19, 2018 - 19:00
  • Todd Gurley – Los Angeles Rams ($9,200 DK & $9,600 FD) vs. the Arizona Cardinals (GPP)

The knee injury is a concern despite his ability to finish the game last week. The Rams offense is struggling with the poor play of Jared Goff but it would be wise for them to let Gurley get healthy as you could see by watching the game that something is bothering him.

 Week 16 QB Breakdown
Posted by Ray Flowers on Tuesday, December 18, 2018 - 20:00

Each week on Wednesday, Ray Flowers will break down the quarterback position. There are a handful of signal callers who you always can feel confident in starting. We know the names. At the other end of the spectrum, there are a handful of quarterbacks you should never be starting. We know that as well. It’s the twenty quarterbacks in the middle that really matter. Ray will review the entire position each week, letting you know which quarterbacks should be started and/or avoided on a weekly basis...

 Benny's Mon/Sat NFL Rundown - 12/17
Posted by Benny Ricciardi on Monday, December 17, 2018 - 16:03

We don't have a Thursday game on the schedule here this week or moving forward with the college football season done. We do have two Saturday games and a small-ish Mon-Sat slate to look at. I will break those games down here, but also want to mention there is a different element to playing Mon-Sat v. Mon-Thurs.

 Tommy G's Week 15 DFS Rundown
Posted by Tommy G on Sunday, December 16, 2018 - 13:29

You guys have been asking me to narrow it down for you a bit, so here you go. I am going to rank all my players by price tier for you, to make it easier to construct a lineup. I am also going to bold in RED to signify my favorite 1 or 2 players in the tier and bold in BLACK the players that will be on one of my main 3 lineups.
