Jonas Valanciunas (C, TOR) - FanDuel Upside Play on 1/20/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: vs BOS, $6,100 ANALYSIS: Relatively speaking, Valanciunas has been somewhat of a monster lately, totaling 33 fantasy points or more in three of his last five games, despite never eclipsing 30 minutes in those contests. He's exceeded his price implied value in eight of his last 1o games, by an impressive margin of 5.29... Read More

Dirk Nowitzki (PF, DAL) - FanDuel Matchup Play on 1/20/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: vs MIN, $7,100 ANALYSIS: A rested Dirk is a strong Dirk, and that's what we have on our hands tonight. Nowitzki has exceed his price implied value in seven of his last 10 games, by an impressive average of 3.11 points over. The big veteran has an outstanding matchup tonight against the Timberwolves, as... Read More

Tobias Harris (SF, ORL) - FanDuel Value Play on 1/20/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: at PHI, $5,600 ANALYSIS: "There are actually a lot of decent, serviceable options at small forward tonight" - a thought I had earlier. It's a thought I don't think I've had before. With guys like Lebron, Durant and Carmelo playing tonight, there's quite a bit of starpower, so that thought may not be surprising.... Read More

James Harden (SG, HOU) - Safe FanDuel Play on 1/20/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: vs DET, $9,300 ANALYSIS: The drop in salary is warranted, but in the last 10 days, we've seen Harden's salary go from $10,500 all the way down to $9,300. That's quite a bargain. He has been a disappointment lately in terms of fantasy production, but the opportunity is always there for The Beard, and... Read More

Damian Lillard (PG, POR) - Strong FanDuel Play on 1/20/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: vs ATL, $8,800 ANALYSIS: Despite exceeding value in 6 of his last 10 games, Lillard has an extremely appealing pricetag this evening, a pricetag that has dropped $600 in total since the start of the month. Any time you can find a guy of Lillard's skill priced under 9K, the matchup is worth investigating,... Read More

DeMarcus Cousins (C, SAC) - Top Option on FanDuel for 1/13/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: vs NO, $10,600 ANALYSIS: DMC has been on fire over the past week, exceeding value in his last five games, four times eclipsing 50 fantasy points and twice eclipsing 60. On a night where there are lots of value plays at other positions and the options at center don't look to appealing - whether... Read More

Cody Zeller (PF, CHA) - Value Play on FanDuel for 1/13/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: vs CHR, $4,900 ANALYSIS: While my projection models still project Zeller to have a pretty low floor (6-8 fantasy points), his production has been steady recently and more importantly for tonight, he draws a nice matchup. In his last eight games, Zeller has only played less than 28 minutes once, and that was in... Read More

Andrew Wiggins (SF, MIN) - FanDuel Tournament Play on 1/13/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: at HOU, $6,500 ANALYSIS: Due to the facts that his fantasy point totals can be up and down and he (normally) relies heavily on hitting shots to score on FanDuel, I'm not confident in Wiggins enough to play him in cash tonight. That said, I love the price tag and the potential for a... Read More

Klay Thompson (SG, GSW) - FanDuel Bargain Play on 1/13/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: at DEN, $7,600 ANALYSIS: The Splash Brothers have an ideal matchup tonight in a projected high scoring game against a Denver team that doesn't do much to slow down opposing guards. For the production I'm expecting out of Klay tonight, even with a price tag above 7K, I'm considering him a bargain. I normally... Read More

Tyreke Evans (PG, NO) - Strong FanDuel Play on 1/13/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: at SAC, $7,800 ANALYSIS: Tyreke is back to his drive-to-the-basket-at-all-costs ways, and as a result, his fantasy production has skyrocketed after taking a few dips in early and mid December. Not only has he recorded 36 fantasy points or more in each of his last four games, he's playing a lot of minutes, which helps... Read More

FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice - NBA DFS Lineup Picks for 1/13/16

We've got a 10-game slate scheduled for this evening, with five games (of the seven with point totals listed at this time) having point projections above 205. In other words, there are a lot of appealing games for DFS players, particularly Golden State at Denver (211), Dallas at Oklahoma City (211.5) and Milwaukee at Washington (208)... Read More

Karl-Anthony Towns (C, MIN) - Strong FanDuel Play on 1/6/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: vs DEN, $7,500 ANALYSIS: Towns put up somewhat of a dud against the 76ers in his team's most recent game, but I like him to bounce back against a Denver squad that is hurting in the middle thanks to Faried's injury. In the three games prior to the T-Wolves loss to the Sixers, Towns... Read More

Serge Ibaka (PF, OKC) - Cheap FanDuel Option on 1/6/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: vs MEM, $6,500 ANALYSIS: There are quite a few options tonight at power forward that I think are in consideration for both cash and tournament, but I wanted to give you a guy who's a  little less pricey than most and still provides a nice floor. In Kevin Durant's absence the other night, Ibaka... Read More

T.J. Warren (SF, CHA) - FanDuel Value Play on 1/6/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: vs CHA, $4,300 ANALYSIS: With all the expensive plays I've suggested tonight, I wanted to find a value play I could confidently back. That said, my confidence levels up if Nicolas Batum is unavailable for the Hornets tonight. Warren has seen his usage and production increase greatly since the absence of Eric Bledsoe due... Read More

DeMar DeRozan (SG, TOR) - High Floor FanDuel Play on 1/6/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: at BKN, $8,200 ANALYSIS: There is quite a bit of value available at shooting guard tonight, but not enough consistency among them for me to warrant cash game consideration - I'll save those guys for tournament play. DeMar draws a great matchup against Brooklyn. Honestly, rostering at any position against Brooklyn is a favorable... Read More

Chris Paul (PG, LAC) - Strong FanDuel Play on 1/6/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: at POR, $9,000 ANALYSIS: I think you could go Westbrook in this spot as well for cash games, but with so many options tonight at point, I'd rather save the $1,700 and go with Paul. He's got a real nice floor, has been playing very well of late - he's exceeded value in eight... Read More

FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice - NBA DFS Lineup Picks for 1/6/16

Tonight we've got a lovely 11-game slate scheduled. My favorite thing about the larger slates is that if you miss on a 40+ fantasy point scorer or two, your night isn't necessarily over. In this article, I will be providing you with Daily NBA picks for FanDuel for 1/6/16. The picks will range from some... Read More

Draymond Green (PF, GS) - Big Money Play on FanDuel 12/30

Draymond Green (at DAL, $9,200) Although it's a term I don't like to drop often, Draymond has nearly become a "must-play" these days. He's racking up fantasy points at an incredible rate and the best part about it as that he has a solid floor of minutes and doesn't rely on shot-making to rack up... Read More

Rajon Rondo (PG, SAC) and Omri Casspi (SF, SAC) - Stack on FanDuel 12/30

Rajon Rondo (vs PHI, $7,800) I'm going with counterparts in this Philly-SacTown matchup, one that I found particularly intriguing in GPP's due to two less than stellar defenses, a high point total projection and the pace in which both these squads play. Despite dropping 39 and 35 FPTS last week, Rondo had one of his... Read More

Ish Smith (PG, PHI) - Value Play on FanDuel 12/30

Ish Smith (at SAC, $5,200) Ish might be the flavor of the week and all that, but I can't resist him at this price point. I happened to catch the Sixers-Jazz game the other night, and Smith was incredibly impressive. He had the look and feel of a guy completely in control of the offense... Read More

FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice - NBA DFS Lineup Picks for 12/30/15

Ten-game Wednesday ought to be pretty fun and fairly tricky. We've got a few games projected to be tight contests (Clippers at Hornets, Pacers at Bulls, and Jazz at Timbervoles) with spreads of three points or less, a few with projected point totals over 206 (Lakers at Celtics, Warriors at Mavericks), a few with absolutely...

FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice - NBA DFS Lineup Picks for 12/23/15

A 13 game slate Wednesday is a real holiday treat. So many games, options and stacks to consider on this Christmas Eve Eve. Not every spread and over/under total has been released as of my writing, but a few games I'll be targeting due to high totals and and relatively low spreads are the following... Read More

FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice - NBA DFS Lineup Picks for 12/16/15

This slate is all sorts of intriguing. For starters, we've got a whopping twelve games scheduled. Of the 24 teams in play, just three - the Timberwolves, Celtics and the Bucks - are on the back end of a back-to-back. The three teams that lead the league in offensive efficiency - Golden State, Oklahoma City... Read More

Jeff Teague (PG, ATL) and Al Horford (C, ATL) - Stack on FanDuel 12/16

Jeff Teague (vs PHI, $6,100) When looking for salary relief at the point tonight, look no further than Mr. Teague. He's priced incredibly fairly, and while his recent performance suggests using him in cash is risky, I think his matchup tonight warrants strong consideration in tournament play. His price implied point total is just 23, and facing... Read More

Avery Bradley (SG, BOS) - FanDuel Value Play for 12/16

Avery Bradley (at DET, $5,800) Chasing points with Bradley might be a relatively popular pick tonight thanks to his recent outbursts, but one of the few times ownership percentages should be the lesser of your concerns is on a night with 12 games. Even with strong performances his last few times on the court, his price hasn't... Read More

FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice - NBA DFS Lineup Picks for 12/9/15

We have a really awesome slate scheduled tonight. Twenty teams are in action and only four of them are on the end of a back-to-back. Seven of the 10 games feature spreads under three points. Nine of the 10 feature spreads under six. Seven of the listed nine overs (San Antonio and Toronto is off... Read More

FanDuel CFB DFS Picks: Daily Fantasy College Football Advice for 12/5

Daily Fantasy College Football: FanDuel Picks for 12/5 I shed a tear or two when I came to the realization that this is the last *true* college football DFS Saturday of the year. There are sure to be a sprinkling of smaller contests on FanDuel throughout bowl season, but nothing like the mega-slates of the... Read More

NBA Daily Fantasy Lineup Picks - FanDuel DFS Basketball Advice for 12/2/15

As far as NBA Wednesday's go, the nine-game slate we have tonight is a little on the lighter side. Nonetheless, there are plenty of players to consider (and include) in your FanDuel lineups tonight. In this article, I will be providing you with Daily NBA picks for FanDuel for 12/2/15. The picks will range from... Read More

FanDuel CFB DFS Picks: Daily Fantasy College Football Advice for 11/28

Daily Fantasy College Football: FanDuel Picks for 11/28 The FanDuel operators are getting pretty stingy here in the closing weeks of the college football season. For the second week in a row, we're selecting players from just 14 games, as opposed to the normal 15+ we had throughout the earlier parts of the season. To... Read More

NBA Daily Fantasy Lineup Picks - FanDuel DFS Basketball Advice for 11/25/15

We've got a monster slate ahead of us tonight with 24 teams in action, tipping off at 7:00 EST. Surely we all have more important things to be thankful for this holiday season, but this certainly juices the pot for DFS-ers on Thanksgiving eve.

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.

Wide Receiver VOS (Values Over Starter): 2019 Season In Context

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.

Biggest Breakouts of 2019: Quarterback

2019 was a very interesting season of fantasy football, to say the least. It's safe to say no one was banking on the season that we saw from Lamar Jackson but he wasn't the only one to stand out. At the quarterback position, we saw some really exciting players start to shine and some older... Read More

Biggest Busts of 2019: Tight End

2019 was not the record-breaking season for tight ends 2018 was.

Kansas City’s Travis... Read More

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.
