DraftKings CFB DFS Picks - Daily Fantasy College Football Advice for 11/17

We're down to the final stretch of the regular season. Before we know it, Bowl Season will be upon us. Luckily for those of us obsessed with college football DFS, we still have a handful of big slates left. This Saturday, beginning at noon, we have an 11 game Main slate on DraftKings. Before we...

DraftKings CFB DFS Picks - Daily Fantasy College Football Advice for 11/10

Week 11 is upon us, and we're graced with 11 games on the DraftKings Main slate, beginning at noon on Saturday. It's definitely a weaker plate of games this week, but that's not too surprising as last week was one of the best we've had in a month. Home favorites dominate the slate, as nine... Read More

DraftKings CFB DFS Picks - Daily Fantasy College Football Advice for 11/3

Welcome to week 10! DraftKings really decided to shake things up this week, changing the Main slate from 10 games to - wait for it - 11! While I have been negative about their game selection in recent weeks, I have to give them credit where it's due - this weeks' games are much more... Read More

DraftKings CFB DFS Picks - Daily Fantasy College Football Advice for 10/27

Let's jump right into it, shall we? As has been the case since week three, there's a 10 game main slate this Saturday on DraftKings, with kickoff (and slate lock) at noon eastern. If I'm being honest, it's not the prettiest slate of games, but you play with the cards you're dealt. There's one gem... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (10/24/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

The final score looked a little lopsided, but Game One of the World Series did provide a ton of back-and-forth action. Here's to hoping Game Two continues that trend this evening. First pitch tonight is at 8:09 at Fenway Park - the visiting Dodgers will march out the hefty lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu and the Red... Read More

DraftKings CFB DFS Picks - Daily Fantasy College Football Advice for 10/20

Week eight of college football is upon us, which means this season is flying by entirely too fast! On DraftKings this week, they're sticking with the 10 game Main slate - kickoff at noon - and continuing the trend of using power five teams, many of which are ranked. The only downside to the latter... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (10/17/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

Well, last night was pretty exciting in the baseball universe, huh? Despite a lopsided final score, the Red Sox and Astros dueled prety evenly throughout game three, and we had a benches clearing incident in Los Angeles as the Dodgers beat the Brewers in extra innings to even the NLCS at two games a piece....

DraftKings CFB DFS Picks - Daily Fantasy College Football Advice for 10/13

Welcome to week seven! DraftKings decided to keep with the trend of picking 10 games for the Main slate on Saturday that are power-5 focused, with one lovely exception (UCF at Memphis). At first look, I thought the slate looked pretty ugly - but there are a few hidden gems and, overall, the spreads in... Read More

DraftKings CFB DFS Picks - Daily Fantasy College Football Advice for 10/6

Can't believe it's already week six of the college football season, but here we are. The benefit of being nearly halfway through the season is that we have a much clearer picture of which teams are good, and which of those are frauds we were fooled by in the earlier weeks of the 2018 season....

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (10/5/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

We've got what is probably going to be the juiciest slate of the playoffs today with four games on the Main slate - which begins at 2:05 Eastern. The NLDS series are rolling along with the home team (Milwaukee, Los Angeles) each taking game one, and both ALDS series set to start today in Houston... Read More

FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks (10/3/18): MLB DFS Lineups

For whatever the reason, FanDuel is only running a one game slate, rather than combining today's game with tomorrow's Atlanta - Los Angeles game. So, what we have to work with here is just the contest between the visiting Athletics and host Yankees tonight in the Bronx. The Athletics - adopting from the Tampa Bay... Read More

DraftKings CFB DFS Picks - Daily Fantasy College Football Advice for 9/29

Welcome to Week 5, my daily fantasy friends. DraftKings decided to roll similarly to last week for this Saturday's options, keeping it at a 10-game Main slate with a lot of household teams. However, we don't have the luxury of many games with tight spreads, so we'll have to be careful not to target too... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (9/28/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

The final Friday of the regular season - I can't believe we're really here. The seasons always seems to fly by, but this one in particular seemed lightning quick. Anywho, we have a lovely 13 game Main slate on deck for tonight with a handful of intriguing pitching options. In this article, I will be... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (9/26/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

I can't believe our beloved regular season is coming to a close. Soon we'll be seeing ALCS and NLCS schedules with two-to-three games and we'll long for the double-digit game slates - so cherish them these last few days. We've got a healthy 12 game slate on deck for this evening, with a handful of... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (9/21/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

The Cubs have returned to their regular schedule of playing in the afternoon on Fridays, so we're back to a 14 game Main slate - but it's an attractive one! We've got a number of household names on the bump and a lot of important baseball to be played still (tight division races!), so tonight... Read More

DraftKings CFB DFS Picks: Daily Fantasy College Football Advice for 9/22

Welcome to week four of college football daily fantasy! We're back with a 10-game slate that features some tightly (projected) contests and a lot of household teams and names.

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (9/19/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

We've got a pretty health slate of games on deck tonight for the 7:05 Main slate, which consists of 10 games. It features a few upper tier pitchers and quite a few with a strikeout projection of six or more, which should add some spice to tournament selection. As it's customary at this point, let's...

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (9/14/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

Happy Friday, my fellow fantasy addicts. I can't believe we only have a few of these regular season Fridays left together - the season has really flown by, but at least the tight pennant races should make what we have left a very interesting segment of the season. The Cubs are home today, but, they... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (9/12/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

On deck for today? One of the last doubleheader slates of the year - and this is one of just a few times in recent memory that both slates have been worth playing. The early slate (4 game) features a ridiculous amount of pitching talent and the eight game Main slate has a solid offering... Read More

DraftKings CFB DFS Picks: Daily Fantasy College Football Advice for 9/15

Week Three of college football action is already upon us! Time flies when you're making DFS lineups I suppose. This week on DraftKings, they decided to tighten things up a little bit, bringing the total number of games in the Saturday Main slate from 15 down to 10. Not to worry, though, as that is...

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (9/7/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

Happy Friday, Rotoballers. Boy, do we have a ridiculous treat today in terms of pitching options on this 14-game Main slate. I'd go as far as to say it's a pitching bonanza. I don't think I've had a chance to do a write-up - or even seen, for that matter - a slate with seven... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (9/5/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

We've got two matinee games and a nice looking 12-game Main slate beginning at 7:05 Eastern. The pitching options are no doubt a downgrade from yesterday's smorgasboard, but there's still a nice mix of cash and tournament options. I'm going to call out a few Vegas lines that are worth a look as of this... Read More

Happy Friday, Rotoballers. We made it to the weekend, and we're graced with an interesting 14-game Main slate this evening.

Happy hump day, Rotoballers. We've got a nifty 10-game slate on deck this evening, with a handful of solid and intriguing (see also: risk + upside) pitchers toeing the rubber under the lights.

Welcome back, friends, to another edition of split-slate Wednesday. I don't have the best news about the split, unfortunately.

2020 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers - Jose Urquidy

It's been a tumultuous winter for the Houston Astros.
