NFL Survivor League Picks – Survivor Pool Targets and Avoids (Week 17)

Week 16 finally knocked most survivor contestants out of pools, leaving around 20 people left in survivor pools. Week 16 solidified each AFC playoff team and cleared up the NFC picture. There are two spots up for grabs; the Packers, Lions, and Redskins are all vying for it. If the Redskins win and Packers-Lions does not... Read More

NFL Survivor League Picks – Survivor Pool Targets and Avoids (Week 16)

Survivor pools still have a good amount of contestants left due to the lack of big upsets this season. I keep waiting and waiting for a heavy favorite to go down, but it's not happening. Just like last week I will be picking all 16 games, in descending order of picks I would make. Also note, most of... Read More

NFL Survivor League Picks – Survivor Pool Targets and Avoids (Week 15)

For all of you who chose the Colts, on my advice, and were subsequently knocked out, it’s not the end of the world. The Texans are the favorites to win their division, so you can bet against Brock Osweiler in the playoffs and win your survivor money back! I'm here, as always, to try and help... 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

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.

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

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

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

Can a New Coach Fix Baker Mayfield in 2020?

Another season has passed and another disappointment by Browns fans has been realized. Baker Mayfield got the head coach he wanted in Freddie Kitchens in 2019.

The one (and only) good thing about fantasy football season ending is that we have plenty of time to analyze what happened during the past few months and put performances into context to prepare for next season.

Introducing Value Over Starter Football Metrics

When it comes to fantasy sports, we're always looking for the highest possible Return On Investment or ROI.

Tight End ADP Winners and Losers: 2019 Season Review

I've always believed that it is easier to lose a fantasy championship than to win it on draft day.
