March 18th, 2015

News & Notes:

We are introducing a new format for our DiRTy Plays as we will be posting our Absolute Must Have, Notable and Sleeper for both Fan Duel and DraftKings.  In this segment we will identify the players you should have in your lineup(s) for tonight’s games as we look to combine their matchup with their projection and rank them by salary category.  For more information and additional insight for more players and lineups be sure to check out DiRTy Plays – Week of March 16th.  Below you will find a Free Roll that we have put together with DraftKings that is designed for only beginners.  You can click on any game, banner or highlighted phrase to be taken to the proper location.  This means if you have NEVER played on Draftkings before tonight is your night.  It cost you nothing to enter and if you click here or just go to our DiRTy Plays Week of March 16th page we will tell you how to win at this contest.  Once you win some money tonight, come back and visit us next week as our lineup optimizer will be ready for you to use and not only will we will analyze your daily DiRTy plays for DraftKings but Fan Duel as well, we always provide insight into why you should stick with certain players.  If you need some instructions on how to play on either DraftKings click here and for Fan Duel click here.  We will be adding a new segment next week that will also outline some of those guys that you should shy away from and why that is so look for that new segment.  Now let us me show you how we are doing as we don’t just provide info we play too so yes, we put our money where our mouth is so you can trust our analysis and results thereafter.

Absolute Must Have, Notable & Sleeper – New Segment

The definition for these respective categories is all based on the salary assigned to the individual for today’s games on both Fan Duel and DraftKings.  The Absolute Must Have category is designated for players with a salary above $8,000.  The Absolute Notable is for players that have a salary between $5,300 and $7,900.  Absolute Sleeper is defined as players that have a salary at or below $5,200.  We will be identifying the best player for these respective salary ranges each day and you should take all three of these individuals as they have the best matchup and the projection combination for the day.  You will then be able to review the next section where we outline some additional players to complete your lineup and finished off with a lineup to consider for each site.

Absolute Must Have

  • Kyle Lowry– Projected with a 40.1 on Fan Duel and a 41.0 on DraftKings.  He has the best matchup with an overall ranking of #1 and he is still on the somewhat cheap side considering his output will get you at least 12% of your required scoring total to cash tonight.

Absolute Notable

  • Goran Dragic– He is our guy for Fan Duel tonight, coming in with a solid projection of 33.9 and has been playing well of late.  The Heat have been solid in the back court with Wade playing great, look for this to continue tonight.
  • Elfrid Payton – He comes in with the best rating for our Absolute Notable section for DraftKings with a projection of 34.5.  It should be noted that Tobias Harris will most likely not play tonight so look for Payton, Oladipo and Vucevic to pickup the scoring duties tonight.

Absolute Sleeper

  • Robin Lopez– A projection of 23.1 on Fan Duel means can provide you with solid output from the Center position and allow you to afford some other key guys tonight.
  • Justin Hamilton– I’m sure that most of you have no idea who this young player is and really why should you.  Unless you follow the T-Wolves and read their media reports you would never know that this guy has come into the starting lineup with Garnett out and is averaging 12 points and 8 rebounds per game over his last 5 games.  For DraftKings we have him projected at 27.5 tonight.

3 Strikes

1 – Football is and has always been a brutal sport.  It satiates our bloodlust.  It feeds the ancestral need to watch brutes maim each other in the Coliseum.  We watch more intently now, devour fantasy stats, play in leagues, play online and buy merchandise.  We obsess and have been consumed by a product that promotes violence, while we swivel away when that violence spills over into real world.  We watch fascinated, as young men mature up the ladder to hopefully play professional football – knowing the inherent risks involved – just for that chance at eternal glory the mob showers their heroes with – only to later bemoan their suffering.

The NFL has been called out for the cover-up of head trauma and parents have begun to opt out, not letting their sons play football.  The media acting as town crier, continues to signal the end of Pro-Football and yet the adoration advances.  Now we learn of several shocking retirements of players that still have treadlife – retiring because of injuries, or future health risks.  Patrick Willis having a Hall of Fame type career, betrayed by the pain in his feet.  Jake Locker retires after 4yrs in the league and joins Sydney Rice as players labeled with potential never realized.  However, Chris Borland, a Defensive Rookie of the Year candidate, was maybe the biggest surprise, retiring after one year and was looked at as the next man up after P.Willis – will the last man in the 49ers locker-room please turn off the lights…

The Town Crier is shouting, this is the beginning of the end for the NFL.  Calling this the tip of the iceberg for the League and too recognize how dangerous the game has become.  The NFL counters that concussions are down, and that may be true, but this is a sport built on the assumption of brutality.  One on one battles actually exist, bones are broken, blood is spilled, exotic sports cars conducting ballet with dump trucks and we love every minute of it – fall can not come soon enough.   But what of the product?  Will the cries of fervor and weekly campaigns of “think of the children,” against the league change how football is watched?  All the players that are retiring of injuries and fear of “after-football” will be replaced by others seeking idolatry – there will always be those willing to sacrifice themselves for our sanguine hunger for the adulation of hero worship.  But at what cost to the talent pool?  Do the better athletes migrate to other sports, that require less than the requisite pounds of flesh the NFL offers?  Baseball players live normal healthy lives “after-baseball,” receive pensions, and medical benefits that are the envy of every sport – you can play longer, make more money, but the globalization of the game of Baseball, adds more to the talent pool.

If we get to the point that talent will not play in our Coliseums – we will find others – maybe we continue with the convict philosophy the NFL seems to embrace, #RayRice, #GreggHardy, #AaronHernandez, etc…We will be entertained while our true gladiators will be those that we care the least about – the locked up dregs of society.  Or Elon Musk will develop robotic machines that play our games with an exploding football.  When you drop a pebble in a pond you get ripples – soon that ripple fills the whole pond.  This could be that moment and I say that ripple has started and will circumvent the whole NFL pond.  We will remember more what football used to be than what it has become.  Players will come and go, but our thirst will always exist and we will be forever hungry.

2 – What we have done is develop a new way of thinking.  A new way to approach the way sports are looked at, and today we have new ways to play sports, with Daily Fantasy games.  We can now satisfy our urge to play arm-chair GM.  We have more tools at our disposal than our fathers did to predict outcomes, or know what players will perform more consistently.  This is what we work on.  This is what we offer and it is amazing.  Other sites, other prognosticators may shout louder, may have more followers at this time – but none of them can match our actual success.  Want Proof? We gave you Reggie Jackson yesterday as a notable and all he did was score 50+ in FanDuel.  We constantly come within +/- 2pts in our projections for the NBA.  We cash over 70% of our lineups in NBA Daily games.

We are still working to provide you an experience that will be unrivaled by any site.  Providing your own personal analytics, enough information for you to make the best decision possible and giving you the tools to continually be right more than 70%.  Look around.  There is NO ONE who can predict that level of accuracy, no matter how much smoke they blow.   According to VegasInsider.com, the best NFL handicapper was right 57% of the time – In college football, 61%.  We were right 72% in both the NFL and college for the year.  We gave you over 70% accuracy in the bowl games and with what we have built, we will improve on that.

It is great to have you here reading our information, using it – It can be very exciting to think about the results you are likely to generate.  We know you want to get the best results from our site, and we want to invite you, and your friends to join us – help build the best site out there.  In the future, we will provide more amazing analysis, and tools for you to research and learn how to make some extra cash following the sports you love.  For the remainder of March, we are offering several free offers of Platinum Membership to the first 15 people that send us their email via the contact page – with “I want the free Platinum Membership” in the comments.

Thank you again for reading.  Follow along with us in our attempt at the NCAA Tournament Bracket and see if we can beat 55% accuracy from the best college hoops handicapper listed on VegasInsider.com.


 

3 – Oh Rockies…You put out, for a national audience, your A-lineup.  The Angels, scrupulously countered with a journeyman pitcher, found in baseball’s independent league.  That’s the next level up from A-league Softball – or the more like the beer-league of baseball.  You would think we would have jumped on the guy, but no.  This is the Rockies and too often they demonstrate a lack of plate discipline or fundamentals, to hammer a guy who does not belong in the majors.  The Rockies were shut out and lost 11-0 to the not-in-Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.  Mike Trout smoked two home runs – 2-run and a 3-run jacks before he exited – Mike Trout 5, Rockies 0.

I know this is Spring Training.  I know it is Baseball’s version of pre-season and none of it matters, but when we will stop hearing the excuses.  Tulo, who went 0-2 made the comment that this beer-league pitcher just: “jumped on us.”  How does that happen? Why does that happen?  The guys pitching for our team are better than Capt.Softball and still got waxed by the Halos, giving up 11 runs.  We scored none. Nada. Zip. Squadoosh.  Are we already pretending this is a road trip?  Please tell me we will have meaningful baseball after July and not another year of excuses, like we have had the last 4yrs.
