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

Good morning, Rotoballers. Quite the night of baseball we had last night with a no-hitter from the Big Maple, a pitching gem at Coors Field and an offensive explosion from the Royals that sent Dylan Bundy to the showers in the matter of minutes. Let's hope today is just as wild. There are two slates... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (5/2/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

Two pretty attractive schedules on deck here with five games in the matinee and nine games this evening for the Main slate. Luckily for us there are a handful of good-to-great pitchers in each, and the rest we can pick on with bats. We've got nine games in the Main slate this evening and none... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (4/27/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

Happy friday, folks! We've got a bevy of good baseball games tonight with a Brewers-Cubs appetizer this afternoon to hold us over until the Main slate at 7:05. It's also Chris Tillman day! That fills me with excitement, because I love to stack against Mr. Tillman and see the runs pile up. As is custom... Read More

FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/27/18): NBA DFS Lineups

Thanks to teams forcing games sixes and pushing these series further along, we get a nice little three-game slate for Friday evening. Playoff basketball (in potentially series' deciding games!), the NFL Draft continues, and a 14-game main slate in MLB is a really nice way to kick off the weekend. My first thought about this...

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (4/25/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

Wednesday DFS is gracing us with a split-slate once again. We've got a four game Early Only slate starting at 2:05 and a healthy nine-gamer for the Main at 7:05 tonight. Lots to unpack here! I'll update my Vegas section with new lines and heavy line movement as it happens. As for now, those with... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (4/18/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

Welcome back to another split-slate Wednesday. Not a whole lot better than twice the number of chances to win in a single day than normal. I won't even knock the early slate and the ugly pitching options - becuase I'd rather have the chance to play an ugly slate and the Main slate than suffer... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (4/13/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

Happy Friday to all of you, fellow Rotoballers. We made it to the weekend, it's finally warm in the northern half of the country, and we have an awesome 13 game Main slate to play with this evening. There's not much to complain about in the DFS world, as we've got good-to-great pitching options and... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (4/11/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

I decided about halfway through last season that I had to take on a Wednesday column for next season because there's a lot of day baseball. Day baseball means split slates in DFS. Split slates (when each one is at least three games, preferably a 5-9 game range) are twice the fun. That's not even... Read More

FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (4/9/18): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

It is here - the final Monday of the regular season. We've got a nice little nine game slate on deck for this evening. If I'm being honest, the beginning of "the end of the season" came real fast, and this last month has dragged for a few reasons. I don't particularly love tank-and-sit season,... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (4/6/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

The beginning of the regular season starting in March and that 'Thursday on-Friday off' schedule has made for a weird Friday schedule today. Just nine games are set to take place, with a few mid-afternoon first pitch times. Normally, we'd have a Wrigley game to get us through the afternoon and then a 14 game... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (4/4/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

What a wild night of baseball we had! Christian Villanueva with three home runs? The unpredictability of baseball is fantastic, albeit at times frustrating for fantasy owners. But the season is long, and there are thousands of chances at redemption - like today for instance. The major league baseball gods have blessed us with aces... Read More

FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (3/30/18): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

Baseball season may have started, but we still have a few healthy basketball slates left to roll with in the regular season. Nine games are on the docket for Friday night - let's make it a good one! As of this writing, there are two games with really high projections from Vegas - and I'll... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (3/30/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

Opening Day part two, anyone? I know it happened yesterday, but the Reds and Nationals are gung-ho on the name, seeing as they got rained out yesterday. Every team is in action today and that's a beautiful thing. Hopefully the weather holds up around the country, as March games prove to be a little trickier... Read More

FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (3/19/18): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

What a weekend of hoops! The NBA has a lot to live up to over the next few days before they go back to sharing the spotlight with the NCAA Tournament - which delivered a lot of excitement over the weekend, namely in the form of crazy upsets. The NBA is giving us a healthy... Read More

FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (3/16/18): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

Sprinkle a little extra madness in your March by combining the thrill of college hoops action all day and NBA DFS action all night. Starting at 7:00 Eastern, FanDuel offers up a nice little six game slate with a pretty even East-West coast split. As we've seen over the past week or two, Vegas odds-makers... Read More

FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (3/12/18): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

I was expecting a monstrous slate since the NCAA will be dormant for a few days, but the NBA didn't take advantage and left us with a four-gamer. Normally, this is where I'd say - but, it's a really nice looking four gamer! That is not the case today, as this is one of the... Read More

FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (3/9/18): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

Happy Friday to you, my fellow Rotoballers and DFS addicts! March Madness is upon us, and while that phrase generally refers to NCAA action, there is quite a bit of madness in DFS right now. The madness of projecting and finding players who should see a healthy number of minutes. Anywho, we've got 10 beautiful... Read More

NBA DFS Risers and Fallers for Week 21

We've reached peak tank season, and it's coupled with "let's see what these bench guys are capable of" (on good teams, mind you, the bad ones have long been playing reserves) season. As teams have just 15-18 games left on their schedule, playoff teams are tapering their starters minutes in preparation for the playoff stretch... Read More

FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (3/5/18): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

A seven-game NBA slate is a nice way to start this first full week of March. March is a pretty damn good basketball month from what I remember, so let's kick this one off appropriately with a fatter DFS bankroll than what we started the month with. Of these seven games, we've got four with projected... Read More

FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (2/26/18): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

I'll be honest, I am starting to get the multi-sport cravings again. The beautiful thing about hoops is that, up through the Super Bowl, we always have another sport to play and having that really decreases the chances you get burnt out on one sport. February changes all that, and it's been a long, short... Read More

FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (2/23/18): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

Well, now that the way-too-long All-Star break is over, we can get back to business. Technically, basketball returned yesterday, but that six game slate was pretty damn weak. Luckily for tonight, we have a really full menu. Eleven games with a lot of east coast flavor - which is great for this non late-swap world we... Read More

NBA DFS Risers and Fallers for Week 18

Welcome back, my daily fantasy sports friends, to another edition of Risers and Fallers. There's not as much to cover this week, as we're just a day away from the All-Star Break. Did you know the break is a full 7 days? I sure didn't, and it made me sad because seven days without DFS hoops... Read More

FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (2/12/18): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

Good morning, my daily fantasy basketball friends. Hopefully you enjoyed the Sunday split-slate as there was some nice action there - particularly from Victor Oladipo and his 7 (!!) steals. That's in the past though now, and we've got a pretty attractive six gamer on the docket for this evening to prepare for. The only... Read More

NBA DFS Risers and Fallers for Week 17

Welcome back, my daily fantasy sports friends, to another edition of Risers and Fallers. There's a lot to cover every week, but I'm expecting next week's to be the wildest of the season - seeing as how yesterday's NBA Trade Deadline was one of the wackiest that I can recall. This is a really fun league,... Read More

FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (2/9/18): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

Happy Friday to you all, my daily fantasy friends.

Hopefully the good hoops trend continues throughout the weekend (I have no reason to believe... Read More

That game was ridiculous. Not really much more you can ask for in terms of entertainment, suspense and the like. We can only hope the hoops action tonight is half as exciting. On deck at 7pm for the Main slate we have a seven game slate with a decent spread of games. It is certainly... Read More

NBA DFS Risers and Fallers for Week 16

A lot can change in the NBA landscape in just a weeks' time. Since we last talked, John Wall and Kevin Love have gone down to injury and will miss serious time, and trade happenings are moving players - or just keeping them on the sideline until a deal gets done. Throw all of that... Read More

The Super Bowl can wait, right? We've got an awesome few days of basketball before we shift our attention to the big game. Tonight's nine game slate is a pretty attractive one, with fairly high projected point totals across the board. A big slate with few or no "avoid games" makes things much more interesting,...

I wouldn't dare open with "happy Monday!", but let us celebrate this nice little six game slate on the 29th of January. It's something to look forward to, and I'll help you prepare. The Monday night slate is the only thing that gets me through the cubicle life, and it's extra pleasant when the slate... Read More
