OBSERVATIONS, ADVICE, AND FACTS

  • With everyone and their brother doing DFS stacks, is it time to move away from the stack to differentiate in cash games especially?
  • Bortles has two or more TD passes in three straight games
  • The AFC East has two of the hottest teams (Pats / Bills) and two of the worst teams (Jets / Phins) and all four have solid fantasy angles.
  • The largest Vegas total is Pitt / Miami (48). Do you believe the Dolphins offense can score 20+ vs the Steelers? I don’t.
  • Jordan Howard is looking like RB add of the year. Howard has 100+ rushing yards, three receptions and 16 plus FF points in two straight games.
  • The Super Bowl hangover theory is on par, just ask the struggling Panthers. That team is in disarray.
  • Broncos, Steelers, and Titans can all cover the number.
  • Emmanuel Sanders is hot, 24 receptions for 285 yards and three TDs over his last three games.
  • Shady vs the 49ers is the MUST start of Week 6.
  • Brock Osweiler is 3-0 at home
  • Alex Smith is 7-1 vs Oakland
  • The Giants need the return of Rashad Jennings to run the offensive effectively
  • Week 6 DFS try plugging in RB’s and going value WR’s, there are many in Week 6. Robert Woods, Davante Adams, Michael Thomas, Tavon Austin to name a few….
  • Mike Evans leads the league in targets with 62 but has 32 receptions. Good time for the bye week to clean that up.
  • Devonta Freeman (averaging 22.46 points over last three weeks) continues to fly under the radar in DFS. 5200 on DK in Week 6?
  • Don't plan on Eddie Lacy playing this weekend
  • Jeremy Kerley has 20+ FF points in two straight games and he's making really smooth cuts to get open. Will Kap ruin this momentum or help it?
  • Undercover Lucky 7: These low hanging fruit players all had 7 targets in Week 5: Nelson Agholor, Crockett Gillmore, Pierre Garcon, Jalen Richard and Andrew Hawkins.
  • Bears skill position players (who would have thought?) continue to be some of the most consistent FF producers in the mix.
  • Terrance West (11 carries for 95 yards) averaged 8.6 YPC in Week 5.
  • Lamar Miller has zero TDs and only 14 receptions through five games. That will turn around this weekend unless Blue continues to get more looks.
  • Cordarrelle Patterson has double digit FF points in two straight games for the first time since Week 7 and Week 8 of 2014. Remember Patterson is a former first round draft pick and made pro bowl his rookie year.
  • I agree with my friend Dr. Roto, I'd like to see what Jay Ajayi could produce with 20+ carries…
  • ASJ (Jets) is a crafty pickup moving forward, especially with Decker loss.
  • Jeremy Hill hasn’t rushed for 100+ yards since late December of his rookie year. He had five 100 plus rushing yard games his rookie year but zero in 2015 and 2016.
