Absolute Must Have

As we look to move into the second quarter of the NFL season, we have some certainties, one of which is Tom Brady!  Aug 16, 2013; Foxborough, MA, USA; New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (12) throws a pass against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during the first quarter at Gillette Stadium. Mandatory Credit: Stew Milne-USA TODAY SportsHe has started off the season as the highest producing player on FanDuel and #3 on Draftkings. This week he is our #1 overall Absolute #MustHave! This is the game we have been waiting for since the Colts called shenanegans on the Pats last post season. Not only have the Patriots owned them of late, they have blown them off the planet. This game doesn’t seem to have any more to it than that but I will say that by enlarge the Patriots have beat the Colts down by running the ball with an extra lineman into block. Look for Brady to exceed his projection of 26.12 on Draftkings this week as they have different weapons this year and I suspect that Lewis, Gronk and Edelman will all get into the mix, not just Blount! I believe that Gronk get’s back on the TD train, Patriots roll the Colts by 29, just like they have averaged since Andrew Luck came into the league.

FanDuel Projection – 22.89  Draftkings Projection – 26

***Reminder Must Have’s are salaries that are $7,800 and higher


 

Absolute Notable

For FanDuel our top Notable for week 6 is Ryan Fitzpatrick, coming in with a projection of 17.77 and a positive projection to spend ratio of 2.24.  He is coming off a bye week last week and the Washington secondary is not very good.  Aug 24, 2013; Arlington, TX, USA; Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton (14) throws in the second quarter against the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium. Mandatory Credit: Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY SportsLook for Brandon Marshall to also have another solid performance again this week. On Draftkings, we have Andy Dalton. What can I say about his play this season, simply amazing.  I have started him on one lineup every week since week 2 and he has outperformed our projection each time this season. The Bills defense is supposed to be stout but did you know that they have given up at least 22 fantasy points to every QB this season except Mariota last week.  He was close but look who Tennessee has, certainly no AJ Green over there, look for Dalton to continue his top 5 play again this week and put up 25 fantasy points.  On Draftkings as his salary is far lower than his production so far this season so give him a shot, you won’t be disappointed. His Draftkings Projection is 20.85.

***Reminder Notables are salaries between $5,200 and $7,800

 


Absolute Sleeper

fanduelNow for the category that most, if not all of you are really looking for.  Each week we have nailed our #Sleeper for the week and that is why we have been so consistent in winning on both FanDuel and Draftkings!  Drum roll please………….Ryan Fitzpatrick is our Absolute Sleeper on Draftkings this week. Ryan Fitzpatrick_headshots_250He comes in with a Draftkings Projection of 16.58 and a salary of only $5,000. I know that you might be looking for a different position here but our Absolutes are based off of a combination of projection and matchup value for the week.  While Washington has a descent statistical value this season, the value for Fitzpatrick is there.  If you took McCown last week, who was in a similar situation, you blew it up last week and Fitzpatrick is that guys this week, trust me.  Our FanDuel Absolute Sleeper is C.Santos for the Chiefs.  Yeah, I know a Kicker, come on MAN! The truth is, the Cheifs are going to struggle to put the ball in the end zone with Charles gone for the season, look for big points out of this young man.  My personally selection for this week’s #Sleeper is Antonio Andrews of the Tennessee Titans.  Andrews is averaging 13.8 fantasy points per game on Draftkings this season and Miami comes in with the highest projected rush yards against for the week.  He is only $3,400 so for that price, you can afford some higher priced folks this week.

***Reminder that Sleepers are salaries under $5,200

What You Need To Know for Both #ALDS Game 5’s Today – #OwnOctober

1. I Got a Feevah, For More Baseball

It doesn’t matter that the Cubs were 0-11 All-Time in the post-season, if they lost the first game of the series.  It doesn’t matter that the Cubs were 0-4 All-Time in series clinching games, at home.  It didn’t matter when they won their first game giving up 3 HR’s to the opposing team in the post-season.  It just doesn’t matter – anymore.

It feels different today doesn’t it?  Beating the Cardinals, overcoming history, it all feeeels different, right?!  I’m not a Cubs fan, but are friends with many, and although the AltX.Logo.whitemoment feels good now and things have been accomplished that have never been done before – you just hope, and have a lot of prayer, to make it thru the witchcraft that has been your history.  But man for right now, enjoy this, just know, you are not thru the woods yet Cubs fan – hopefully no one goes and gets a tattoo or anything else that might upset your #KarmicResponsibility.  There’s still more games to play.

  • Meanwhile, how about Theo Epstein – should he be the focal point of Moneyball 2: Curse Killer?
  • How about today’s games, both Game 5 showdowns.
  • Harold Reynolds must be as popular in Toronto as Chase Utley is in New York, right?
  • It’s awesome that beginning this afternoon, we’ll have two elimination games
  • Gotta love this October so far, eh?

Here is a preview of the games between the Rangers/BlueJays and the Astros/Royals.  Remember to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter – there are a lot more nuggets of info that we don’t have time to always prepare for you here – and as always tell your friends – share us with the world:

  • ALDS Game 5 previews: It’s win or go home for all four AL playoff teams

    For just the third time in the wild-card era, both American League Division Series have come down to a single-elimination Game 5. In the entire history of best-of-five playoffs in Major League Baseball, there have been 36 series that went a full five games; exactly half of those series have been won by the team that failed to clinch in Game 4, and one shy of half (17 of 36) have been won by Game 5’s home team. Momentum and home field advantage have proven meaningless.

    The American League Championship Series starts Friday night and could still consist of any of four matchups. By midnight tonight, we should know which of those four pairs will indeed be playing for the pennant……(continue reading)

 

 

#NFL Week 5 #FanDuel Retrospectacle + The Best Of Steve Spurrier and 5 Coaches for USC

NFL Week 5 Retrospectacle: Next Man Up for Charles-less Chiefs

NFL Week 5 had it’s usual studs and duds, but the Chiefs are in trouble after possibly losing Jamaal Charles for the rest of the season.

The Kansas City Chiefs’ Jamaal Charles (knee) is expected to be ruled out for the season after an MRI finds his ACL is torn. Charcandrick West ($6,200 for Week 6) and the mysteriously absent Knile Davis ($5,500) become potential bargains.

West had taken over as Charles’ backup, but frankly neither West nor Davis were doing much behind Charles. Now Andy Reid’s Chiefs are left to resort to those young backups, or Alex Smith ($7,000) throwing to the emerging Travis Kelce ($6,200) and the steady veteran Jeremy Maclin ($7,200).…..(continue reading)

TOP 10 STEVE SPURRIER MOMENTS

  • You already know by now that legendary college football coach Steve Spurrier has retired, effective immediately. The man has done a lot in his career. He’s won big games, talked lots of smack and shared his larger-than-life personality with America. So we thought we’d combine all those into a single list to give the Head Ball Coach a proper farewell……(continue reading)

5 USC HEAD COACH CANDIDATES

HarsinHeltonGundy

  • USC’s suddenly vacant head coaching position (due to the unfortunate circumstances surrounding the recently fired Steve Sarkisian) reignites a rumor mill that ran rampant just two years ago. After Lane Kiffin’s firing in September 2013, a wish list that was as long as it was unrealistic got play from national media.  Like last time, NFL coaching names will surface. USC alumni Jack Del Rio and Jeff Fisher are almost assuredly to be rumored this time around, but a new unlikely candidate emerges……(continue reading)
