NFL Survivor League Picks – Survivor Pool Targets and Avoids (Week 14)

I would like to congratulate Jeff Fisher on his two- year contract extension. As a fan, this is great. We get to see Jeff Fisher struggle to find his challenge flag for two more years! I'm here, as always, to try and help you identify the best survivor pool targets and avoids for Week 14 of... Read More

NFL Survivor League Picks – Survivor Pool Targets and Avoids (Week 13)

At about 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, it really looked and felt like it was going to be upset Sunday. The Jaguars, Rams, and 49ers, all seven-point underdogs, led 7-0. The Browns, also seven-point underdogs, were tied with the Giants. But every single favorite pulled through. There hasn't been an upset Sunday in a while, but... Read More

NFL Survivor League Picks – Survivor Pool Targets and Avoids (Week 12)

Now the real season begins. Bill Parcells and Cris Collinsworth believe when Thanksgiving arrives, football really begins. This is where teams separate themselves from the pack. Thursday is a loaded slate. Each game features a division winner. I will not be making selections in any of the Thursday games and I suggest you do the... Read More

NFL Survivor League Picks – Survivor Pool Targets and Avoids (Week 11)

After 10 long weeks for fans of the Los Angeles Rams, they finally have something to cheer for! Jared Goff will be getting his first start on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. How funny it would be if Goff was awful, but doubtful that happens. Jeff Fisher will have a gameplan on Sunday featuring checkdowns,... Read More

NFL Survivor League Picks – Survivor Pool Targets and Avoids (Week 10)

The NFL is so unpredictable. I thought the Packers were the lock of the year against the Colts last week. But as soon as the Colts returned the opening kickoff, they took control of the game, never relinquishing the lead. There are no stats that can account for something like that to happen. I'm here, as always,... Read More

NFL Survivor League Picks – Survivor Pool Targets and Avoids (Week 7)

Perhaps the playing level has diminished, but what about the coaching? Mike McCarthy this Sunday made some boneheaded decisions. On 4th and 1 from the Dallas 19 in the first quarter trailing 7-0, he kicks a field goal. Two drives later on 4th and 2 from the Dallas 25, McCarthy settles again. Although Aaron Rodgers has been...

NFL Survivor League Picks – Survivor Pool Targets and Avoids (Week 6)

Through five weeks of the season, it’s safe to pronounce the Houston Texans as this year’s good bad team. They’ll defeat the bad teams, but get crushed by the good ones. The Texans had trouble defeating the Bears, Chiefs, and Titans. They got smoked by the Patriots and didn’t seem too interested in playing football... Read More

NFL Survivor League Picks – Survivor Pool Targets and Avoids (Week 5)

The NFL schedule impacts each team in drastic ways. The Eagles opened with the Browns and Bears at home, then destroyed Pittsburgh. What if the schedule was turned around and the Eagles opened with the Steelers? The Steelers would have been a favorite and my guess is they would have won. If the Eagles lost... Read More

NFL Survivor League Picks – Survivor Pool Targets and Avoids (Week 4)

There are 31 teams that are too hard to get a grasp of, and then there’s the New England Patriots. They are the only reliable team week to week. I think my third rule for survivor, saving the best teams until the end, is no longer viable. Each week, take the team with a favorable... Read More

NFL Survivor League Picks – Survivor Pool Targets and Avoids (Week 3)

Week 3 is do or die for some NFL teams. Starting a season 0-3 spells doom. In NFL history, only five teams have made the playoffs after starting 0-3. Teams like the Bills, Colts, and Washington are in must-win situations. More on these matchups below. Editor's Note: Be sure to check out FantasyAces DFS contests for... Read More

NFL Survivor League Picks – Survivor Pool Targets and Avoids (Week 2)

It was one of the best opening weekends the NFL has had in some time. Week 1 ended after the ultimate duel between Case Keenum and Blaine Gabbert. They combined to throw for 300 total yards. Astonishing. This highlight doesn’t even show a pass that Keenum completed. Is Jeff Fisher really sure Jared Goff isn’t... Read More

As you all know football is back. I'm not going to bore you about cliches. Rather, let's get right into week one. Week one is always the hardest week to gamble on. This year’s opening weekend is one of the more difficult in recent years. I have scrolled through the lines at sportsbook.ag more than 20... Read More

Daily Fantasy Golf DraftKings Picks (PGA DFS): THE PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP

James Hahn defeated Roberto Castro in a playoff to capture the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow. Castro hit one of the most unlikely shots in the playoff; hitting the ball off a man's head and then landing in a shoe.  Hahn was awful at this course in recent year's, but managed to win. It shows how unpredictable a... Read More

Daily Fantasy Golf DraftKings Picks (PGA DFS): Texas Open

Former number one in the world Luke Donald was unable to convert his 54-hole lead into a victory as Branden Grace shot 5-under 66 in the final round to win his first PGA Tour event.

Daily Fantasy Golf DraftKings Picks (PGA DFS): RBC Heritage

Jordan Spieth looked like he would run away with The Masters and defend his title after 63 holes. But a quadruple bogey on the Par-3 12th, did him in. Let's not say Spieth choked, because playing in front of that many people is unfathomable, but rather collapsed. Danny Willett played tremendous golf Sunday to win... Read More

Daily Fantasy Golf DraftKings Picks (PGA DFS): The Masters

Jim Herman captured his first PGA Tour victory holding off Henrik Stenson by one stroke to win the Shell Houston Open. I have picked Herman many times in this column in the past and I am glad the 38-year-old finally broke through. Stenson's second place finish is another tournament where he fell short. The Swede has... Read More

Adam Scott did it again. He won his second tournament in a row holding off Bubba Watson by one stroke. My top pick, Dustin Johnson, was right up there heading into Sunday, but shot a final round 79. Sound like a familiar story? Well, yeah. Johnson is known to blow up on Sunday so it... Read More

Daily Fantasy Golf DraftKings Picks (PGA DFS): WGC- Cadillac Championship

Adam Scott defeated Sergio Garcia by one stroke to win the Northern Trust Open.

Daily Fantasy Golf DraftKings Picks (PGA DFS): Honda Classic

Bubba Watson birdied two of the last three holes to win the Northern Trust Open. Jason Kokrak and Adam Scott both finished one stroke back. Last week I picked Sergio Garcia or Charl Schwartzel to win. Garcia missed the cut and Schwartzel finished T45. Matt Kuchar was my best pick, as he finished T8, 10-under.... Read More

Daily Fantasy Golf DraftKings Picks (PGA DFS): Northern Trust Open

Phil Mickelson was lining up on the 18th hole for a birdie putt, to force a playoff, when CBS showed a stat saying Mickelson was 23-for-23 on putts within six feet for the tournament. Once that stat was shown, I knew he would miss it. The putt lipped out and Vaughn Taylor won, overcoming a six... Read More
