Hammer Time WK8

Anthony Volanti

Washington Redskins WR Terry McLaurin

Welcome back to DFS CheatSheet’s Hammer Time with the Gambling Guru! After going 3-3 on player props and picks, 1-1 on parlay plays, and 1-1 on first TD scorer bets in Week 6, my cumulative record for the 2020 NFL season heading into Week 7 is as follows:
· Player Props and Game Picks: 75-79, hitting on 49% of bets
· Parlay Plays: 4-3
· First TD Scorer Bets: 4-5-4*
*“Ties” indicate player scored later in the game (winning wager back with DraftKings Primetime 1st TD Scorer Promo)

Lots of action to get to today nut let’s begin with a quick recap of the Thursday night game.

TNF Player Props and Bets:
NYG @ PHI: 5-5
· PHI -2.5 (lost)
· Over 44.5 total (lost)
· Devonta Freeman under 54.5 rushing yards (won)
· Daniel Jones over 20 rushing yards (won)
· Carson Wentz over 15 rushing yards (lost)
· DeSean Jackson over 34.5 receiving yards (lost)
· Boston Scott over 39.5 rushing yards (won)
· Travis Fulgham over 4 receptions (won)
· Travis Fulgham over 44.5 receiving yards (won)
· Travis Fulgham to score (lost)
The Philadelphia Eagles defeated the New York Giants by a single point in an ugly divisional game Thursday night. It was perhaps the most frustrating win I’ve ever witnessed as an Eagles fan. Jake Elliot missed a 29-yard chip shot field goal and the Eagles failed to convert on a 2-point conversion late in the 4th quarter, which busted both the spread and over total points bets. Carson Wentz and DeSean Jackson both fell 1 yard shy of their player props as well. The Eagles (2-4-1) laughably sit atop the historically bad NFC East heading into Sunday of Week 7.

But enough wallowing in self-pity. It’s time to drop the hammer on these best bets and win some money. LET’S GOOO!

Sunday Spreads and Player Props:

DAL @ WAS:
· Terry McLaurin over 72.5 receiving yards (-165 at DraftKings)
“Scary” Terry McLaurin is averaging over 80 yards per game this season and over 13 yards per reception. Meanwhile, the maligned secondary of the Dallas Cowboys is giving up over 160 yards to receivers per week and over 100 yards to the opposing team’s top target. This may be my favorite bet of the week. Hand me Thor’s hammer, please.

BUF @ NYJ

BUF WR Stefon Diggs

· BUF -10 (-115 at Bet MGM)
· Stefan Diggs over 75.5 receiving yards (-155 at DraftKings; over 78.5 -110 at FanDuel)
· Cole Beasley over 56.5 receiving yards (-110 at FanDuel)
The New York Jets are far and away the worst team in the NFL. The last time these two teams met in Week 1, the New York’s secondary gave up a combined 214 yards to Stefon Diggs, John Brown, and Cole Beasley. Brown has been ruled out for the grudge match, giving a boost to the other two’s projections. Diggs enters the game averaging over 90 yards per game and went over this line last time with 86 yards. Beasley has flown under the radar with 60 yards per game and put up 56 in Week 1. The only way these two don’t smash is if the Buffalo Bills get such a big early lead that they pull their starters or salt the game with the run.

CAR @ NO

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara

· Alvin Kamara receptions over 5.5 receptions (-125 at Bet MGM)
· Alvin Kamara over 54.5 receiving yards (-115 at Bet MGM)
Michael Thomas was aiming for a Week 5 return from his high ankle sprain but missed that game due to disciplinary actions. He was fully recovered coming out of the Saints Week 6 BYE, but then pulled a hamstring. He’ll now miss his fifth straight game, keeping Alvin Kamara positioned as the focal point of the Saints offense. Their opponent, the Carolina Panthers, have given up the 4th most fantasy points to the running back position this season. It’s a perfect storm. Hammer the over.

GB @ HOU
· GB -3 (boosted to -110 at DraftKings)
· Aaron Jones or Jamal Williams over rushing yards (not available at the time of this writing)
The Houston Texans have arguably the worst rush defense in the league this season, giving up an average of 157.5 yards per game and four 100-yard rushers. Last week they were trampled under Derrick Henry, who galloped for 212 yards. Aaron Jones will feast—if he plays. If he doesn’t, his carries will shift to Jamaal Williams with rookie A.J. Dillon feasting on the scraps in a larger-than-usual role.

CLE @ CIN
· Kareem Hunt over 86.5 rushing yards (-110 on FanDuel)
Cincinnati’s defense is giving up an average of just over 100 rushing yards per game this season—middle of the pack. However, the maligned defensive line of the Bengals gave up over 200 yards in their first game against the Browns. Vegas has set this player prop right where Hunt finished in that contest with 86 yards, but he was playing second fiddle to Nick Chubb, who chalked up over 120 yards as Cleveland’s primary back. With Chubb still on injured reserve, Hunt should smash.

DET @ ATL
· Kenny Golladay over 74.5 receiving yards (-110 at DraftKings)
You know the drill here. We hammer receivers facing Atlanta’s abysmal secondary. The Falcons are giving up 188.5 yards per game to wideouts and 8 receivers have gone over this line this year. Kenny Golladay has only started three games this season, but he’s clearly Matthew Stafford’s top target. He’s racked up 57, 62, and 105 yards on 16 total receptions. The line is higher than I’d like, but he should still hit.

TB @ LV
· Josh Jacobs under 54.5 rushing yards (not available at the time of this writing)
· Darren Waller over 4.5 receptions (not available at the time of this writing)
Josh Jacobs is averaging 75 rushing yards per game with a season low of 48 yards in Week 4, but Tampa Bay boasts the best run defense in the league, giving up an average of just 40 yards per game. This is not a product of scheduling. The Buccaneers have held several high-profile backs in check this season, including Alvin Kamara (12 carries, 16 yards), Melvin Gordon (8 carries, 26 yards), David Montgomery (10 carries, 29 yards), and Aaron Jones (10 carries, 15 yards). The most yards they’ve given up to a single rusher this season is Christian McCaffrey, who they still held to under 60 yards. Making matters worse for Josh Jacobs, the Las Vegas Raiders are dealing with a COVID-19 issue that’s left the status of their entire starting offensive line in jeopardy. I think the lack of ground game will force Derek Carr to go to the air. He’ll check it down often to his favorite target, tight end Darren Waller, who has averaged 7 catches a game (more if you exclude his 2-catch day when he was shut down by the Patriots). The NFL has flexed the game out of its primetime Sunday Night Football slot in case it needs to be postponed (this is likely the reason that oddsmakers have yet to publish player props), so keep an eye on that. Once the lines drop… drop the hammer!

SNF Spreads and Player Props:
SEA @ ARI
· DeAndre Hopkins over 75.5 receiving yards (-115 at Bet MGM)
· Christian Kirk over 46.5 receiving yards (-115 at Bet MGM)
· Chris Carson to score 1st TD (+650 at DraftKings)*
· Total points over 54.5 (-113 at DraftKings)
Seattle’s secondary holds the unwanted distinction of being the worst secondary in the league thus far, giving up more yards and fantasy points than any other to the wide receiver position. They are historically bad, giving up 282 yards per game and a whopping 94 yards per wide receiver faced this season. That is not a typo. Wide receivers are averaging almost 100 yards each against the Seahawks. Of the 15 wide receivers they have faced, only 3 were held under 65 yards. Jamal Adams has been ruled out for a third straight game, which certainly won’t help matters. This week, they face their toughest task yet: containing DeAndre Hopkins, who leads all wide receivers this year with 601 yards through 6 games. Christian Kirk has quietly emerged as the Cardinals second receiver. His production has increased each week and he is averaging 60 yards per game over his last 4 starts. Get ready to see some fireworks in primetime.

Bottom of the Barrel WK7 (NFL DFS)

Bottom of the Barrel WK7
10/20/20
Chris Robin https://twitter.com/DetroitBeastie

Our words are powerful. Our words have meaning. They can hurt others. They can help others. Are you part of the problem? Or are you part of the solution?

I’ve never had a problem editing an article or admitting when I was wrong. What does one have to do with the other? In all my years I’ve never edited B&B. I’ve never gone back in after it was published to add players. I’ve never gone back in to delete my words either. Once it’s published it’s history. It’s set in stone right? For the first time ever I’ve decided to make an edit to Bottom of the Barrel. Not subtract but to add! With all the injury news today I felt compelled to do so!

Being and honest and transparent are two ideals we need as human beings. Being open and honest as a fantasy sports writer is imperative.

With week 7 of the NFL season upon us a few things are becoming clear. Waiver wire adds, DFS and writing are becoming mundane and exhausting. We’ve officially entered into the quitting portion of fantasy football.

Fantasy football teams are being abandoned, fantasy football writers/podcasters are taking steps back and the grind of the constant work is draining us all. What we’re doing here is clearly a marathon and in no way a sprint. It’s a year round type commitment.

Let me rewind back all the way to March when I become fully entrenched on Twitter. Large groups of people were constantly writing, ranking and broadcasting. It was the off season, there were no deadlines to hit and content didn’t have a expiration date.

Now, lets fast forward to the present time where our content is only relevant for a few days or a week tops. You either get into a strict schedule or you’re lost, passed by. It’s heartbreaking. I truly want us all to succeed. We can all make it. Unfortunately that’s not the case. People are giving up before the miracle happens.

I’ve long said the best way to get along with our writing and broadcasting is to help others. Reach out and share as much content as you can. We all deserve a millions views. A million downloads and a million comments. That’s not realistic and most times it doesn’t go our way.

Shout out to everyone who writes and broadcasts on a daily basis. Shout out to those of you have stepped back. We all have our reasons right? Shout out to anybody who has made a healthy decision here. I love you. I got you!

QUARTERBACK

Not new anymore but here’s the most expensive player at QB in week 7. Should help put B&B prices into perspective!

Patrick Mahomes KC @ DEN (24th)(FD-$9,000)(DK-$7,400)

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at QB!

Ben Roethlisberger PIT @ TEN (27th)(FD-$7,400)(DK-$6,600)

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger

Big Ben didn’t have to do much vs. the Browns last week. However, he continued to strengthen his bond with Claypool and James Washington! I’m fully expecting Ben to crank up the volume on Sunday. With volume comes points!

Ryan Tannehill TEN vs. PIT (5th)(FD-$7,300)(DK-$6,200)

Tennessee Titan QB Ryan Tannehill

See what happens when Fanduel doesn’t catch up? What the hell are they doing? Tanny is completely 100% a must start week-to-week now right? You bet your ass he is!

Matthew Stafford DET @ ATL (32nd)(FD-$7,300)(DK-$6,500)

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford

Can the Lions get a three game winning streak going? You bet your ass they can! Careful how many times you bet you ass here. Stafford didn’t do much Sunday vs. the JAX and rightfully so seeing how their ground game was lights out. I’m fully expecting an entire air show in ATL Sunday!

Teddy Bridgewater CAR @ NO (29th)(FD-$6,800)(DK-$5,800)

Carolina Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater

Ah Teddy is back with us here at B&B! Teddy has played well in spots this season. That’s what we’re looking to find here at B&B. He’s been very efficient with his passes although the points haven’t added up as much as we’d like. How many of you buy into revenge games? I wouldn’t say this one qualifies seeing how New Orleans took a chance on him and treated him well. Regardless, Teddy B will want to show them what they’re missing!

Kyle Allen WSH vs. DAL (22nd)(FD-$6,700)(DK-$5,200)

Washington QB Kyle Allen

This is a classic of match-up over the actual player. Forget that you’re spending fictitious money on Kyle Allen and just skip ahead to the mouth watering match-up. The Cowboys are in trouble here. Arizona made them look inept and silly. Here’s hoping we can capture some of that magic with Kyle Allen. Can’t believe I just typed that…

RUNNING BACK

Not new anymore but here’s the most expensive player at RB in week 7. Should help put B&B prices into perspective!

Christian McCaffrey CAR v NO (15th)(FD-$10,000)(DK-$8,300)

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffery

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at RB!

D’Andre Swift DET @ ATL (18th)(FD-$6,100)(DK-$5,400)

Detroit Lions rookie RB D’Andre Swift

It was a real joy to watch the Lions play well and watch Swift show out! After a performance like that it leaves us all asking for an encore! D’Andre should very much give us one Sunday in Atlanta!

Justin Jackson LAC vs. JAX (28th)(FD-$6,100)(DK-$4,900)

LA Chargers RB Justin Jackson

Mr. Jackson had 20 total touches Sunday vs. the Saints. He also out-touched Joshua Kelley 20-12 and out-produced him yardage wise. If you look at the slate Kelley is a touch more expensive than Justin. It’s a no brainer for me here in week 7.

Giovani Bernard CIN v CLE (14th)(FD-$4,800)(DK-$4,500)

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard

Joe Mixon has already been declared out. So in turn that pushes Gio up to their RB1. If you remember correctly Gio was the starting RB in Cincinnati for I believe three maybe four seasons. In 2013 Gio rushed 170 times for 695 yards scoring 5 times. He also caught the ball 56 times for 514 yards and 3 touchdowns. Look I’m not going go through his entire career just letting you know Gio is very capable of playing RB in the NFL.

Samaje Perine CIN v CLE (14th)(FD-$4,500)(DK-$4,000)

Cincinnati Bengal RB Samaje Perine

Maybe this one is little wild. Maybe I’m just excited that some value has been made available. He’s merely a special teams player at this point but we have no clue how the targets and touches will shake out. 6 or 7 carries and a reception or two is what I think he gets Sunday. This is what B&B is all about! Do you have the guts?

A.J. Dillion GB @ HOU (31st)(FD-$4,500)(DK-$4,000)

Green Bay Packers rookie RB AJ Dillon

Word broke this afternoon that Aaron Jones suffered a minor calf injury sometime in the past few days. This is purely speculative seeing how he’s the third string back in GB. It’s actually quite simple, if Jones plays there is no room for AJ. Pay close attention this over the weekend!

Antonio Gibson WSH vs. DAL (24th)(FD-$5,700)(DK-$5,000)

Washington rookie RB Antonio Gibson

JD McKisson (FD-$5,200)(DK-$4,600)

Something something Dallas’ defense is awful. Something something Gibson/McKissic are splitting touches. Nothing more then a plug and play here!

Zach Moss BUF @ NYJ (26th)(FD-$5,400)(DK-$4,200)

Buffalo Bills RB Zach Moss

Was tough sledding for Devin and Moss Sunday. Obviously the Kansas City Chiefs are at the top of the NFL food chain so I wouldn’t think too much into it. Looking ahead the Bills travel to the Jets and oh boy is it going to be bad news for them and Adam Gase. Who here thinks the Bills get up big, like 21+ points, on Sunday and we see a steady dose of Moss in the second half? Exactly! That’s what I thought!

Jamaal Williams GB @ HOU (31st)(FD-$5,000)(DK-$4,000)

Green Bay Packers RB Jamal Williams

Did you see what Derrick Henry did to the Texans on Sunday? 200+ rushing yards and 2 TD’s. Once of which that ended the game. Henry single handedly took the Texans soul with him after this one. Aaron Jones is the RB1 here in this one but lets get wild and roster J-Will! Lot’s of room to run on a soul-less defense.

La’Mical Perine NYJ vs. BUF (19th)(FD-$4,800)(DK-$4,200)

New York Jets rookie RB La’Mical Perine

I respect Frank Gore very much but the Jets would be wise to get the rookie involved. Adam Gase is so bad, “how bad is he Chris?”, he’s starting to effect our DFS decisions now too. Absolutely awful!

Jeremy McNicols TEN vs. PIT (3rd)(FD-$4,500)(DK-$4,000)

Tennessee Titans RB Jeremy McNicols

Not an ideal match-up for the kid. Henry is no doubt the unquestioned RB1 in Tennessee but in today’s day and age can he realistically carry the ball 30 times?

WIDE RECEIVER

DeAndre Hopkins ARZ vs. SEA (32nd)(FD-$9,000)(DK-$8,200)

Arizona Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at WR!

Mike Williams LAC vs. JAX (18th)(FD-$5,900)(DK-$4,7000)

LA Chargers WR Mike Williams

That-a-boy Mike! He’s finally come alive. Albeit after Keenan Allen left with injury. Regardless the Chargers are fresh as a daisy coming off their bye week and with studly rookie QB Justin Herbert playing this well, plenty of targets and touches to go around!

Marvin Jones DET @ ATL (28th)(FD-$5,700)(DK-$4,400)

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones Jr.

The volume may be lower now that Kenny G is fully healthy, Swift is getting his and Stafford is looking TJ Hock’s way 4-5 times a game but Marvin is Marvin! He’s always been super efficient with his targets. At a sub-6k price tag and this match-up I’m jumping all over it!

Tee Higgins CIN vs. CLE (29th)(FD-$5,700)(DK-$5,300)

Cincinnati Bengals rookie WR Tee Higgins

Life comes at you fast folks! I full expect Tee to be the next graduate here at the B&B DFS academy. The chemistry that’s developing here between Burrow and Higgins in undeniable! Tee continues to see targets. Continues to put up fantastic numbers. Tee and Burrow are on the fast track to super-stardom. Will it translate into real life wins? Not my area of expertise. Long as the fantasy points are accumulating and the money is flowing who has time to worry about real life wins/loses?

Keelan Cole JAX @ LAC (15th)(FD-$5,500)(DK-$4,700)

Jacksonville Jags WR Keelan Cole

Cole has been a pleasant surprise for us DFS players. He continues to rack up receptions, yardage and even touchdowns yet his price remains low. He’s put up 100+ yards or scored in four of his last six games. It’s such a nice floor for the price that you’d be a fool not to roster him!

Tim Patrick DEN vs. KC (5th)(FD-$5,500)(DK-$4,600)

Denver Broncos WR Time Patrick

Remember when I said life comes at you fast like two minutes ago? What about how shocking and totally unpredictable fantasy football is? If I told six months ago that Tim Patrick was going to be the Broncos WR1 heading into week 7? I would’ve been laughed out of the business. Tim has had back-to-back 100yd receiving games and is absolutely a threat to take it home on any given play. Very tough task ahead vs. KC but his volume alone makes him a play!

Christian Kirk ARZ vs. SEA (32nd)(FD-$5,400)(DK-$4,900)

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk

Have the Cardinals finally put it together? Are they clicking? Hitting on all cylinders? Kirk was a popular sleeper add in our seasonal formats so naturally we assumed he’d be a great DFS play week after week! You know what they say when we assume? Makes an ass of u and me. Get it? Kirk has come alive the last few weeks and Seattle comes to town giving up a ton of points to opposing WR’s. Boom or bust? I’d bet BOOM yet again on Sunday!

Corey Davis TEN vs. PIT (25th)(FD-$5,200)(DK-$4,800)

Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis

Corey was finally playing well! He was helping us and we liked it! Then he was added to the COVID-IR. Corey is back now for a match-up that isn’t that scary when you look into it! Will he get enough volume? Or enough targets to make him a viable option this week? I’m guessing 5-6 targets and 3-4 receptions. Fortune favors the bold!

Tre’Quan Smith NO vs. CAR (4th)(FD-$5,300)(DK-$4,000)

New Orleans Saints WR Tre’Quan Smith

Tre’Quan is no stranger to B&B! Michael Thomas has been ruled out and so has Emmanuel Sanders. Mr. Smith has now been thrust into a predominate role Sunday in New Orleans!

Gabriel Davis BUF @ NYJ (13th)(FD-$4,800)(DK-$3,600)

Buffalo Bills rookie WR Gabriel Davis

Gabe is no stranger to us here at B&B and given the match-up along with his price, undeniable to me! Roster the kid! 75yds and TD in week 7?

TIGHT END

Travis Kelce KC @ DEN (13th)(FD-$7,900)(DK-$6,300)

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at TE!

Logan Thomas WSH vs. DAL (26th)(FD-$5,000)(DK-$3,500)

Washington Football Team TE Logan Thomas

Have you heard how awful the Cowboys defense is yet?

Anthony Firkser TEN vs. PIT (9th)(FD-$5,000)(DK-$3,000)

Tennessee Titans TE Anthony Firkser

Keep an eye on Jonnu Smith and his injury designation. He went down Sunday and didn’t return. Tony went wild in his absence! 8 receptions 113 yards and a TD! If Jonnu is out I’m telling you now this is a slam dunk play. Probably my favorite play to be honest!

Drew Sample CIN vs. CLE (22nd)(FD-$4,700)(DK-$3,200)

Cincinnati Bengal TE Drew Sample

Look, if you’re reading this then you know what’s going on day to day in the fantasy community I’d assume. Drew hasn’t done a thing for quite some time. He put up zeros in all statistical categories Sunday week 6. That’s both good and bad. Are you a glass half full kind of person? Or a glass half empty kind of person? He had 0.0 Sunday, so there’s no where to go but up right?

Dawson Knox BUF @ NYJ (20th)(FD-$4,500)(DK-$3,300)

Buffalo Bills TE Dawson Knox

I like to pick on bad teams. it’s the not so very secret to my DFS success. Knox has the Q tag currently but keep in mind as you’re building lines for week 7!

Harrison Bryant CLE @ CIN (14th)(FD-$4,500)(DK-$4,000)

Cleveland Browns rookie TE Harrison Bryant

Not to be rude to Harrison but this is just the process of elimination. Starting TE Austin Hooper came down with appendicitis. David Njouk is just there so that leaves the rookie looking at an expanded role! If you’re like me, punting TE, this selection is looking better and better by the hour!

I’ve always enjoyed reading waiver wire articles with a “graduated” portion of the article but that’s not my style. I do want to mention Justin Jefferson, CeeDee Lamb and Chase Claypool. Hope to see them playing for a long time!

Here are two of my sample lines I’m going to use for week 7! Keep in mind these lines are for entertainment purposes! Please play responsible!

Fanduel 10/25 1p MAIN

Also look for updated lines closer to lock on Sunday morning 10/25!

Draftkings 10/15 1p MAIN

Bottom of the Barrel WK6 (NFL DFS)

Bottom of the Barrel WK6
10/13/20
Chris Robin https://twitter.com/DetroitBeastie

This is downright strange. Or is it absolutely awful? As I type this I’m still thinking about Tuesday night professional football. Come to find out that’s never happened in the history of the NFL? Or has it? Oh 2020 how we loathe thee. Or do we love this idea?

That’s the thing! No one can decide! No one can agree! We’re stuck in this early week purgatory waiting for football but also wanting to look ahead to our week 6 waivers and our week 6 DFS slates!

Look, I’m not complaining at all. That’s not my style. I’m also not blaming the DFS sites. I’m too easy going for that. We are allowed to be a little irritated and frustrated. When you turn everything over to computers and algorithms this is bound to happen. My trusted ole pen and paper has never blacked out or delayed me!

DFS has become a juggernaut. It’s given birth to thousands of websites and podcasts. Lets be honest, its changed the way we all play fantasy sports. Personally, I love it. That’s where this whole article and most of my content has come from.

As human beings we’re good and adapting and overcoming. Case and point; 2020. We are in the home stretch now friends. Little over two months left in the year. Lets be mindful of each other and treat everybody with respect. Kill em’ with kindness as my late father used to say!

What you find horrid and nasty I find exciting and opportunity! Week 6 here we come!

QUARTERBACK

I have a new idea! A new feature if you will. Give out the most expensive player at each position as we get to it. Putting into perspective the B&B prices!

Lamar Jackson BAL @ PHI (14th)(FD-$9,000)(DK-$7,600)

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at QB!

Ryan Tannehill TEN v HOU (8th)(FD-$7,300)(DK-$5,900)

Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill

Quick turn-a-round for the Titans this week. With a monster RB like Henry I don’t think it matters much. Tanny has posted 13 multi-TD games in his last 14 games. Good bet he does it again Sunday at home vs. Houston’s 21st overall ranked defense.

Matthew Stafford DET @ JAX (27th)(FD-$7,300)(DK-$6,200)

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford

Fresh off the bye week the Lions travel to Jacksonville in what should be a winnable plus match-up. As a Detroit Lions fan that means squat. Stafford is averaging 250+ passing yards a game along with 2 TD’s per contest. He’s a safe bet to hit those numbers Sunday.

Kirk Cousins MIN v ATL (32nd)(FD-$7,100)(DK-$6,100)

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins

Minnesota has shown some life their last few games. Looking ahead to Sunday it doesn’t get any sweeter then the Atlanta Falcons. As you read on you’ll notice a Viking type theme going on! Roster Kirk in week 6! As Bob Barker would say, “the price is right!”

Daniel Jones NYG v WSH (28th)(FD-$6,700)(DK-$5,400)

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones

5 interceptions, 16 sacks and a fumble in each of the last 4 games. I do this to myself quite often when putting this article together. So why would we use Danny Jones in week 6? He has to break out of this funk sooner or later right? You’d think so right? To be honest the Washington DST is the play in this one.

Alex Smith WSH @ NYG (5th)(FD-$6,500)(DK-$5,000)

Comeback Player of the Year Alex Smith?

I’m sure we can all agree seeing Alex on the field in week 5 was spectacular. Ron Rivera did say if Kyle Allen is healthy enough he’s the starting QB. Regardless, I’m happy he’s healthy and proud to mention him in B&B! Shout out to Mike F @DaddysHomeFF!

RUNNING BACK

Christian McCaffrey CAR v CHI (13th)(FD-$10,000)(DK-$8,500)

Carolina Panther RB Christian McCaffrery

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at RB!

David Montgomery CHI @ CAR (32nd)(FD-$5,900)(DK-$5,800)

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery

Correct me if I’m wrong but I believe D-Mont is arguably the best RB play of week 6. I was shocked to see him under 6k. Very excited and happy but surprised! Without Cohen David is seeing all the backfield touches. Goal-line work included! The volume he will see in week 6 alone makes him a slam-dunk play!

Antonio Gibson WSH @ NYG (20th)(FD-$5,800)(DK-$5,500)

Washington rookie RB Antonio Gibson

Gibby has seen back-to-back 5 target weeks and is fully entranced as WSH lead back. On Sunday they travel to the NYG for a very positive match-up! Look for Antonio to do it all for our DFS teams this Sunday!

Myles Gaskin MIA v NYJ (28th)(FD-$5,700)(DK-$5,400)

Miami Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin

Gaskin is putting together some nice weekly averages. Looking ahead to week 6 MIA finds themselves in a sweet spot. I fully expect Myles to see 15-16 touches and around 80 total scrimmage yards. In addition to price point I love the play.

Damien Harris NE v DEN (1st)(FD-$5,600)(DK-$5,000)

New England Patriots RB Damien Harris

This game was originally suppose to be played last week. Instead both teams got bye weeks and will try again this Sunday. Harris was all the buzz last time out after getting 17 carries and accumulating 100 yards. With an extra week to prepare I’m counting on Harris to see a ton of touches in unison with James White.

D’Andre Swift DET @ JAX (24th)(FD-$5,400)(DK-$4,500)

Detroit Lions rookie RB D’Andre Swift

Swift is no doubt the best pass catching back on this Lions team. When will the Lions let him loose and give him a full work load? For his price on both sites this week I’m willing to take that bet! #FreeSwift

Mike Boone MIN v ATL (23rd)(FD-$5,100)(DK-$4,000)

Minnesota Vikings RB Mike Boone

Dalvin Cook has already been ruled out for week 6. Enter Alexander Mattison! I say in walks Boone and matches Alex’s touches! The classic case of zigging when others zag! Boone has always been very productive when he sees the field. That’s the issue! With a healthy Cook it leaves Mike the odd man out. Week 6 is your DFS window for Boone!

Ke’Shawn Vaughn TB v GB (31st)(FD-$4,900)(DK-$4,000)

Let’s be honest, a large portion of us want Vaughn to be a thing. Well I do at least. Let me also say that if Leo Fournette is active Ke’Shawn is a non-factor.

Gus Edwards BAL @ PHI (12th)(FD-$4,600)(DK-$4,000)

Baltimore Ravens RB Gus Edwards

The Ravens back-field has been a mystery so far this season. Fantasy players are currently dropping Mark Ingram. That’s how crazy this 2020 season has been so far. Gus is averaging 6.8 carries a game. Through the first few games Edwards has a 6.2 YPC. I like his odds this week in Philly.

WIDE RECEIVER

Davante Adams GB @ TB (10th)(FD-$9,000)(DK-8,000)

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at WR!

Justin Jefferson MIN v ATL (25th)(FD-$5,900)(DK-$6,000)

Minnesota Vikings rookie WR Justin Jefferson

Admittedly JJ’s price is towing the line for B&B but he’s under 6k at home against an awful Falcons team. He’s averaging 74.2 receiving a yards a game to go with 3.8 receptions a contest. Don’t think twice about it! ROSTER JJ in week 6!

Chase Claypool PIT v CLE (30th)(FD-$5,500)(DK-$5,200)

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie WR Chase Claypool

What a coming out party for the kid in week 5! There’s nothing I can say you don’t already know. Give the rookie a shot in week 6 while his price is still manageable.

N’Keal Harry NE v DEN (27th)(FD-$5,400)(DK-$4,500)

New England Patriots WR N’Keal Harry

I try and stay away from players who’s value is tied to another. Meaning, long as Cam Newton is the starting QB for the Pats I like Harry as a DFS play. Keep an eye on Cam the next few days. Nothing official yet either way.

Darnell Mooney CHI @ CAR (6th)(FD-$5,000)(DK-$3,000)

Chicago Bears Darnell Mooney

Did you know Mooney has been targeted 5 fives times in two of their last three games? He’s also played the 2nd most snaps of all the Chicago WR’s. Foles threw some awful passes last time out but with another week of practice under their belt here’s hoping for some chemistry!

Danny Amendola DET @ JAX (19th)(FD-$4,900)(DK-$4,100)

Detroit Lions WR Danny Amendola

Danny will never put up WR1 numbers each week for your DFS team. He will however produce a safe floor at a low price enabling you to roster one, may two WR1’s! It’s strategic move this week!

Darrius Shepherd GB @ TB (10th)(FD-$4,500)(DK-$3,000)

Green Bay Packers WR Darrius Shepherd

The Packers stud WR1, Adams, has practiced in full all week. Green Bay rarely gets into 3+ WR sets during the game. I still find some sort of value for Darrius here in week 6. He’s literally the cheapest you can get at WR.

TIGHT END

Mark Andrews BAL @ PHI (29th)(FD-$7,600)(DK-$6,500)

Baltimore Ravens TE Mark Andrews

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at TE!

Tight end is a wasteland for cheaper options this week. So tread lightly!

Trey Burton IND v CIN (19th)(FD-$4,700)(DK-$3,100)

Indianapolis Colts TE Trey Burton

Here’s a guy that’s always bugged the heck out of me. All the potential in the world but just can’t put it together. Always on and off the IR and injury reports. I know he can only do so much. Phil Rivers seemingly looks his way when he’s on the field. Whatever that’s worth.

Tyler Eifert JAX v DET (6th)(FD-$4,500)(DK-$3,400)

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Tyler Eifert

Eifert didn’t practice Wednesday due to a neck stinger but reports out of Jacksonville are saying they aren’t worried about his status Sunday v the Lions. I have this odd feeling Tyler scores a few times Sunday. I don’t know! I can’t shake it!

Richard Rodgers PHI v BAL (17th)(FD-$4,400)(DK-$2,500)

Philadelphia Eagles TE Richard Rodgers

I honestly have no idea what the heck is going on in Philly. Goedert is still not playing. Zach Ertz looks slow and washed. Something something Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson. All in all it’s quite awful.

Irv Smith Jr. MIN v ATL (32nd)(FD-$4,300)(DK-$2,500)

Minnesota Vikings TE Irv Smith Jr.

If the Irv Jr. breakout game doesn’t happen this week friends it’s not happening at all.

Nick Boyle BAL @ PHI (29th)(FD-$4,100)(DK-$2,500)

Baltimore Ravens TE Nick Boyle

Boyle played 62 offensive snaps in week 5! His largest total of the season. We’ve seen Lamar feed Mark Andrews several times this season. Who’s to say PHI doesn’t take away Mark leaving Boyle open a time or two?

Here are two of my sample lines I’m going to use for week 6! Keep in mind these lines are for entertainment purposes! Please play responsible!

Fanduel 10/18 1p MAIN

Also look for updated lines closer to lock on Sunday morning 10/18!

Bottom of the Barrel WK5 (NFL DFS)

Bottom Of the Barrel WK5
10/5/2020
Chris Robin https://twitter.com/DetroitBeastie

What a Sunday! What a weekend! What a week for Bottom of the Barrel!

It’s week 5 now and week 4 is behind us! We have to move fast in this fantasy football world! Only way to survive is planning ahead!

QUARTERBACK

I have a new idea! A new feature if you will. Give out the most expensive player at each position as we get to it. Putting into perspective the B&B prices!

Patrick Mahomes KC v LV (9th)(FD-$9,000)(DK-$7,700)

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at QB!

Joe Burrow CIN @ BAL (22nd)(FD-$7,300)(DK-$6,000)

Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow

Joe is the real deal! Burrow just set a rookie QB record! 3 straight 300 yard passing performances by a rookie QB. Playing in BAL is no easy task but let’s see what this rookie is all about! Joe should be lowed due to the match-up but I’m loving the potential in this one!

Teddy Bridgewater CAR @ ATL (32nd)(FD-$7,100)(DK-$5,900)

Carolina Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater

Teddy! It’s great to see him on the field and running around again isn’t it? Let’s be honest this Carolina team has a little momentum winning two in a row! They now head to ATL (0-4) and the match-up couldn’t be any better.. The Falcons are reeling, to say the least, while the Panthers putting it all together! No disrespect to Teddy but this play has everything to do with the match-up.

Phil Rivers IND @ CLE (30th)(FD-$6,900)(DK-$5,800)

Indianapolis Colts QB Phillip Rivers

Phil is Phil! Sunday in CLE may just be the game we see the old bolo tie wearing gun slinger! CLE ranks 20th overall vs. the pass while Rivers sits around 7th in overall net passing yards per attempt. I know that’s a long shot statistic but it could be a perfect storm in Cleveland!

C.J. Beathard SF v MIA (29th)(FD-$6,000)(DK-$5,300)

San Francisco 49ers QB CJ Beathard

Assuming Jimmy G is still out for week 5 and assuming Nick Mullens is benched for C.J. I really like this match-up. You know what they say when we assume? Makes an ass out of you and me. Get it?

Tua Tagovailoa MIA @ SF (8th)(FD-$6,200)(DK-$5,400)

Miami Dolphins rookie QB Tua Tagovailoa

Dolphins coach Brian Flores hasn’t committed to a starter in week 5. The entire fantasy football community is on pins and needles waiting for Tua’s debut. I’m with you! Lets pay close attention to this one…

RUNNING BACK

Ezekiel Elliot DAL v NYG (17th)(FD-$9,000)(DK-$7,800)

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliot

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at RB!

D’Ernest Johnson CLE v IND (2nd)(FD-$5,300)(DK-$4,700)

Cleveland Browns RB D’Ernest Johnson

I’m sure you’ve heard Nick Chubb is on the IR. It’s very unfortunate but it’s now an opportunity for Johnson. Who filled in very well Sunday. To the tune of 13 carries for 95 yards. CLE has been very run heavy the first few games of the season. I don’t see that changing now. Hunt will no doubt see all the passing down work but what if I could promise you 10+ carries from D’Ernest?

J.K. Dobbins BAL v CIN (22nd)(FD-$5,200)(DK-$4,300)

Baltimore Ravens rookie RB J.K. Dobbins

Something has to give here right? Ingram, Gus and Dobbins are all in the mix. It’s driving JK owners nuts. Sunday v CIN should afford Dobbins more chances. With chances come opportunity. With opportunity comes fantasy points.

Reggie Bonnafon CAR @ ATL (13th)(FD-$4,900)(DK-$4,200)

Carolina Rb Reggie Bonnafon

We all thought Reggie was CMC’s handcuff right? Come find out Mike Davis is good at football! Reggie caught a TD in week 4 then they sent him back down to the practice squad Monday. So if they call Reggie up again they have to keep him on the active roster or risk losing him on waivers. CMC is still a week out so I fully expect a Davis/Reggie backfield week 5 in ATL. It’s such a plus match-up both backs can be successful.

Brian Hill ATL v CAR (31st)(FD-$4,800)(DK-$4,000)

Atlanta Falcons RB Brian Hill

Hill was given some very high upside attempts Monday but fell short of anything productive. Which is fine. Just sets him up nice Sunday v CAR who just happens to be the worst graded team v pass catching RB’s. Carolina has given up 27 receptions to RB’s.

Jordan Wilkins IND @ CLE (27th)(FD-$4,800)(DK-$4,000)

Indianapolis Colts RB Jordan Wilkins

A lot of you were upset with Jon Taylor’s usage Sunday and rightfully so. Hines and Wilkins received some major work behind him. Is that a sign of things to come? I doubt with a young stud like JT but we need to think ahead and prepare just in case.

Anthony McFarland Jr. PIT v PHI (19th)(FD-$4,500)(DK-$4,000)

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Anthony McFarland Jr.

James Connor is no doubt the lead back in PIT. McFarland and Snell split carries behind him Sunday. Anthony took advantage and did more with his carries then Snell. I have no issue putting McFarland in some of my GGP lines Sunday. I’m expecting the rookies first NFL touchdown at home this weekend! The word “electric” was also thrown around after his week 4 preformance!

WIDE RECEIVER

DeAndre Hopkins ARZ @ NYJ (10th)(FD-$8,700)(DK-$7,900)

Arizona Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at WR!

CeeDee Lamb DAL v NYG (19th)(FD-$5,900)(DK-$6,000)

Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb

Oh c’mon! CeeDee is still ONLY $5,900 on FanDuel? Fresh off a 5 reception, 79 yard and 2 touchdown game his price goes up only $300? It’s shocking quite frankly! He’s right on the cusp of being too much for B&B but until his price increases get used to seeing him here! Can you blame me?

Cole Beasley BUF @ TEN (21st)(FD-$5,200)(DK-$4,700)

Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley

I’ve never been big on Cole and I was wrong Sunday. This Buffalo team is very good and Josh Allen can support 3-4 WR’s! I know! It’s wild right? Cole is currently on pace for 1,000 yards too! Beasley will continue to be a favorite option for Allen moving forward and that alone makes him worth the price!

Tim Patrick DEN @ NE (24th)(FD-$5,200)(DK-$4,400)

Denver Broncos WR Time Patrick

I could write and write about Tim and his prospects all day long. How many people would read it though? To keep it simple, Patrick lead the Broncos in targets, receptions and receiving yards Sunday. He looks to have a strong connection with young QB Brett Rypien. At his DFS price that’s enough for me to add him!

Hunter Renfrow LV @ KC (1st)(FD-$5,100)(DK-$4,900)

Las Vegas Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow

The Raiders rookie WR’s are still hurt it seems. Giving Hunter more playing time and targets. It’s a tough task Sunday vs. a fast and hungry KC secondary but Carr has looked fantastic to start the season. The snaps are there and the price is right!

Jeff Smith NYJ v ARZ (3rd)(FD-$4,900)(DK-$3,000)

New York Jets WR Jeff Smith

Who? How many people in the world do you think have this name? Jeff Smith! Another kid who has been thrust into a starting role due to injuries. Keep a close eye on Perriman. If he’s unable to play Sunday Mr. Smith will play opposite of Crowder and for this price you could do worse. Right?

Gabriel Davis BUF @ TEN (21st)(FD-$4,700)(DK-$3,400)

Buffalo Bills rookie WR Gabriel Davis

Gabe Davis played so well last Sunday I had to add him again! As I said above, Allen can support all these different combos of WR’s! Davis has no doubt carved out a role in Buffalo!

Isaiah Ford MIA @ SF (11th)(FD-$4,600)(DK-$3,500)

Miami Dolphins WR Isaiah Ford

Has Ford taken over the WR2 role in MIA? Not sure. Has he taken to Chan Gailey’s offensive game plan? Absolutely! Whatever is going on I want a slice of it. Ford looks fast and elusive! He’s the reason I created this article!

TIGHT END

Travis Kelce KC v LV (8th)(FD-$7,800)(DK-$6,400)

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce

Aside from the no doubt must start stud TE’s this position is pretty shallow in week 5. I t would be rude of me to just skip it all together!

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at TE!

Jordan Akins HOU v JAX (24th)(FD-$4,800)(DK-$3,300)

Houston Texans TE Jordan Akins

Akins suffered a concussion Sunday so keep an eye on him. This Sunday, week 5, against JAX is a very juicy match-up. If he plays he’s in my lineup.

Dawson Knox BUF @ TEN (25th)(FD-$4,600)(DK-$3,600)

Buffalo Bills TE Dawson Knox

Tyler Kroft BUF @ TEN (25th)(FD-$4,400)(DK-$3,000)

I’m going to lump both Buffalo TE’s together here if you don’t mind? What are the chances we see a repeat of a few weeks ago and both BUF TE catch a TD? I’d say not half bad given the match-up!

Blake Bell DAL v NYG (9th)(FD-$4,200)(DK-$2,800)

Dallas Cowboys TE Blake Bell

Raise your hand if you’ve heard of Blake Bell? That’s what I thought! Dallas welcomes the Giants to Jerry World Sunday in an NFC East match-up. It has all the makings of Zeke Elliot game here. In turn, screams 2-3 TD game from their TE’s! Shultz is the TE1 in Dallas but don’t forget about Bell!

Dan Arnold ARZ @ NYJ (18th)(FD-$4,200)(DK-$3,200)

Arizona Cardinals TE Dan Arnold

Dan Connor AKA Dan Arnold makes his return to B&B simply due to match-up. The O/U in this one sits at 48.5 points as of now. It just screams Cardinals blow out doesn’t it?

Here are two of my sample lines I’m going to use for week 5! Keep in mind these lines are for entertainment purposes! Please play responsible!

Fanduel 10/11 Main

Also look for updated lines closer to the start of the season! This Thursday 10/8 and Sunday morning 10/11!

I Hate Fantasy Football Players THE END!

I Hate Fantasy Football Players pt. 3
10/3/20
Chris Robin https://twitter.com/DetroitBeastie

When’s the last time a sequel was better then the original? When you enter into trilogy territory that’s when you know you’ve got a hit!

Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, The Godfather, Back to the Future and The Mighty Ducks are all on the list of greatest movie combos ever. If you’re into 1980’s horror slasher flicks like me, then a trilogy has a greater meaning! Halloween, Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street.

I’ve always antiquated football with the fall. The fall with horror movies. I Hate Fantasy Football Players deserved a third part thus, making it a trilogy. When discussing horror movie trilogies there are a few rules to discuss.

If you missed the first two here there are! https://www.dfscheatsheet.com/i-hate-fantasy-football-players/nfl/05/

Here is #2! https://www.dfscheatsheet.com/i-still-hate-fantasy-football-players/nfl/05/

 

1. Sex = Death
2. Don’t drink and do drugs
3. Never say “I’ll be right back!”
4. Sequels are always bigger and bloodier
5. Sequel killers are basically superhuman
6. Anyone can die in a sequel

On social media you see everything! On social media anything goes. I look at fantasy football on Twitter and Facebook as being in an actual horror movie! The owners listed below are the same as a masked man carrying a large knife! They will chase you down, cause anxiety and murder your fantasy football joy!

1. Glad it’s a free league guy

I’m no big shot. I truly understand the excitement of drafting and building a team. Certain website allow you to draft at an instant. In turn you get people racking up 20-25+ free leagues and deserting most of them by week 3. Not to be rude but that’s none of my business. What is our business are all the preposterous trade offer screen shots littering social media. I don’t know about you but it tests my patience. Would you send and accept half the offers you receive if your current home league was free?

2. “Thoughts” guy

Literally the worst! From what I’ve seen a lot of fantasy football groups on social media have banned this exact statement! Made this trade, thoughts? Most of these questions don’t include league size, scoring format or current roster. At this point in the article hopefully you’re upset. Just as pissed as I am! Please dear Lord don’t be thoughts guy! It’s lazy and upsets people! Most of the time there is a huge fight in the comment section. People get upset and they answer with a smartass reply. That leads to more smartass comments and before you know it there’s a full blown Royal Rumble going on.

3. Will I win guy?

My worst fear!

If you have to ask probably not. Before we jump to conclusions I do get the idea. Some of us are wound tight. We get nervous. We want others to back us up. In all my years of playing fantasy football I’ve never seen anything good come from this question. In today’s day and age of social media you’ll always wind getting made fun of and/or put down. Trolls right? They are everywhere!

4. Get back in 5 guy

Ghosting 101…

We all know what this is. The blow off move. When another team owner is scared or doesn’t want to hurt your feelings, “I’ll be right baaaaaaack!” No you won’t!

5. Over thinking guy

Start? Sit? Add? Drop?

Hopefully by now you understand I’m not putting anybody down. Heck, I’ve done each and every one of these! Over thinking anything is just a by product of being thorough. Wanting to be absolutely right in every way. Which as you know is impossible! If it seems too good to be true it usually is. If it feels off and not right it usually is. With fantasy sports so prevalent on social media now a days a quick poll should do the trick. Or a quick message to your most trusted friend. Nothing good comes from over thinking. It creates unwanted stress and anxiety. The whole point of this is fun! Connecting with others. Building relationships with others. Make a decision and stick with it! Easier said then done I know but just try it this week! Lets see what happens.

6. Toilet tinkered guy

Where some of my best ideas come!

Some of my best work is done on the toilet! Not bring crass or rude, it’s just the truth! We can tinker with our seasonal lineups and our DFS lines and both are deadly! Everybody has a smart phone. Meaning we have everything at our finger tips at a moments notice! Games, banking apps, news apps, sports apps and our fantasy sports apps. Oh! What better time to check the waiver wire while we have a few moments alone on the toilet right? I set my seasonal lineup Sunday night or Monday morning for the following week. I check back Tuesday to get in my waiver claims. Wednesday morning I shuffle my roster around and leave it be! Sunday morning I check the news and injuries and give it one last look over before lock at 1p EST. My point, if we make our decisions early in the week they come from a place of confidence! A gut reaction that is normally right and spot on! When it comes to DFS enter enter all week then edit right before lock. Tinkering will be the death of your team. Unless that’s the fun?

7. Victory lap guy

This is a huge topic of discussion on social media. For those of you who don’t know let me briefly explain. A victory lap is just a told you so. A parade thrown for yourself after getting a certain projection or ranking correct. For example, “Ahhhh I told you Ke’Shawn Vaughn wasn’t a top-10 dynasty rookie RB!”. Vaughn has been in street clothes so far this season meaning the victory lappers have decided enough time has passed to solidify their stance on him. I’m being objective here! No opinion one way or another. Just shining light on the topic. Most recently victory lappers will now ask ahead of time. For example, “May I take my victory lap on Brandin Cooks now?” which is very thoughtful and we all appreciate you! In some cases the victory lapper will lay out their plans, “If Julian Edleman doesn’t catch 10 passes today I’m going to take my victory lap.” Another nice and thoughtful idea. I’ve also noticed their have been a few rules placed on victory lapping. To me, the most important one, the injury victory lap. Don’t victory lap when a player gets hurt. That’s in poor taste right? Overall I find the victory lap very perplexing.

8. Inappropriate group chat guy

We all know this guy. Most of the time we tell each other, “Oh don’t mind Steve he’s a miserable human being to begin with!” Steve is always sending awful meme’s or sexually explicit photos/videos in you leagues group chat. In certain cases that’s all he’s known for. We even stick up for him in advance of said meme’s and gif’s. “I want to warn you Chris, Steve is a little off and he says weird things sometimes.” It helps soften the blow. If you’re reading this and laughing hysterically saying, “dang that’s funny but we don’t have a guy like Steve in our group chat!” Then you’re Steve! You’re the inappropriate group chat guy! Never change Steve!

9. Neglects an entire position guy

This one is exactly what you think it is! Zero RB guy! Or zero WR guy. Let’s fool around during the draft and try to outsmart everybody else! In the end it never works out well. Let’s say over the years a team was orphaned in your league. New owner comes in and trades most of the talent away. In turn, they have Julio Jones, Davante Adams and Michael Thomas at WR. Pretty sweet right? Until you notice their starting RB’s are Frank Gore and LeSean McCoy. A top heavy team that never really competes due to neglect at one position. Again, it’s none of my business how you run your team. That’s the beauty of this! We’re our own teams general manager! Just bringing awareness.

10. Commish with no plan guy

Full disclosure, I was struggling with the last, “Guy” on this list. Ten is just a nice round number. When have you read a list that ended with nine. After the breaking news Cam Newton tested positive for COVID-19 and the New England at Kansas City was delayed a lot of fantasy managers were scrambling for replacements. Even more so after the postponement of Pittsburgh at Tennessee. Throughout the weekend I’ve seen a ton of advice and overall disappointment in leagues commissioners. Rightfully so if you’re now left holding you hat with an incomplete roster. We all knew this 2020 NFL season was going to be unlike any season we’ve experienced before. Certain votes were cast before the draft and some after. Any way you slice it we need contingency plans. Anything! To sit back and do nothing isn’t fair. It’s not right to us and all fantasy managers alike.

Is it over?

Hope you had fun! Is the idea now dead? Like Michael Myers at the end of Halloween? Who knows! You’ll just have to wait and see!

Thank you for reading! Any questions or comments?

Hammer Time WK4 (Sunday Edition)

Hammer Time
10/4/20
Anthony Joseph Volanti https://twitter.com/A_Volanti4390

Welcome back to DFS CheatSheet’s Hammer Time with the Gambling Guru! Each week, I’ll share my favorite bets to help give you an edge over the oddsmakers. Because let’s be honest, the only thing better than watching football is winning some money on it. LET’S GOOO!

*Note: The odds listed are accurate as of the time of writing, but the market is subject to change—shop around for the best lines. Gambling problem? Call 1-800-GAMBLER.

Week 2 Betting Recap:

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler

After a huge Week 2, the Gambling Guru faced some regression in Week 3. I hit on 3 of the 5 Thursday Night props—Myles Gaskin easily hit on both of his props and the Dophins trumped the Jaguars (I told you to fade the ’stache!)—before going 10-15 in the Sunday afternoon slate of games. Several factors contributed to the shortcomings, including Diontae Johnson getting knocked out of his matchup with a concussion and Bucaneers head coach Bruce Arians inexplicably sticking with Ronald Jones over Leonard Fournette. But several players fell just short of their props. Miles Sanders missed his total yards prop by a measly 2.5 yards—adding extra justification for my screaming at the television as the Eagles passed and then punted for the tie at the end of the game instead of running the ball to get in better field goal range. Austin Ekeler and Kenyan Drake also narrowly missed their rushing yard props, though the former crushed his passing and total yardage prop. The Bears-Falcons game in particular was brutal as all four of my bets fell short. I was saved from a disastrous day by a huuuge performance by Alvin Kamara in the night cap. Kamara hit both of his props, as well as the first TD scorer bet—his second time this season already (shameless brag: he also propelled me to a comeback victory in fantasy with 44+ points).

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake

Week 3 Record: 15-18 (45%)

Let’s see if we can recover here in Week 4, starting with some TNF props…

TNF Player Props and Bets: DEN @ NYJ

· Melvin Gordon over 60.5 rushing yards (-112 at DraftKings)
· Noah Fant over 43.5 receiving yards (-110 at Bet MGM)
· Jerry Jeudy over 50.5 receiving yards (-112 at Bet MGM)
· K.J. Hamler over 33.5 receiving yards (-112 at DraftKings)
· Melvin Gordon to score the first TD (+500 at DraftKings)*
Just when we thought the Thursday Night games couldn’t get any uglier, the NFL unloads a battle of basement dwellers on us as the talentless New York Jets play host to the hapless Denver Broncos. The Jets, indefinitely hindered by the Adam Gase Effect and plagued with injuries at the skilled positions, offer little in terms of player prop value. The options on the other side are just as unappetizing, as third-string quarterback Brett Rypien will be getting the start for the Broncos. Still, what kind of Gambling Guru would I be if I sat this one out? Unlike these teams, I have heart, so I’ve dug deep for these sleeper picks.

First, the chalk. Through 3 games this season, Melvin Gordon has 42 rushing attempts and 174 yards. That averages out to 58 yards per game and 4.1 yards per carry. Gordon was notably limited last week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, getting only 8 touches in the ground game. Poor game script aside, I suspect that’s because head coach Vic Fangio wanted to keep him fresh for tonight’s game since they’ll be playing on a short week. The Jets defense is quite possibly the worst in the league and this is Rypien’s first official start, so all things point to Denver pounding the rock. If Gordon gets a workload closer to the first two games of the season, he should have at least 15 carries. That puts him on track for at least 62 yards so I’m hammering the over there. I’ll also pick him to score the game’s first touchdown, simply because there are no better options.

I’m also going in on Noah Fant’s yardage prop. he’s eclipsed this in each game so far this year, with 81, 57, and 46 yards. The yardage is trending in the wrong direction, but I’m confident he’ll pull through as Rypien’s security blanket. I’ll also take the over on Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler’s receiving yards as yards should be easy to come by against this Jets secondary.

Sunday Spreads and Player Props:
SEA @ MIA:

Miami Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin

· Myles Gaskin over 3.5 receptions (-112 at Bet MGM)

· DeVante Parker over 61.5 receiving yards (-112 at FanDuel)
· Tyler Lockett over 72.5 receiving yards (-110 at FanDuel)
· Tyler Lockett over 5.5 receptions (+105 at Bet MGM)
· DK Metcalf over 67.5 receiving yards (-112 at Bet MGM)
Tyler Locket has averaged 8 receptions for over 85 yards per game so far this season and D.K. Metcalf has averaged about 100 yards per game. Look for more of the same against a weak Miami secondary this Sunday. Hammer the over on all three of these mispriced lines. On the flip side, Seattle has been the second worst team against the pass so far. That makes DeVante Parker a solid bet to go over his reception and receiving yards prop. Parker eclipsed both numbers last week against the Jaguars, in spite of a negative game script, and came within 15 yards of the receiving prop in the first two games against the elite corners on the Bills and Patriots. Myles Gaskin, who is averaging 30 yards on 5 receptions per game, will continue to get work on passing downs, as they’ll be playing from behind in this one.

N.O. @ DET:

New Orleans Saints WR Tre’Quan Smith

· Alvin Kamara over 7.5 receptions (+123 at DraftKings)
· Alvin Kamara over 59.5 receiving yards (-115 at Bet MGM)
· Kenny Golladay over 60.5 receiving yards (-112 at Bet MGM)
No surprises here. My love affair with Alvin Kamara continues as I project him to go over 59.5 receiving yards and total 8 or more receptions. It’s a steep number, but he absolutely crushed it last week in a shootout with the Packers. Michael Thomas has been already been ruled out for a third straight week, so the “Drew Brees Checkdown Show” starring Alvin Kamara will continue. For Detroit, I like Golladay to flash in his second start, especially since both starting corners for the Saints are out. Hammer all three of these props.

CLE @ DAL:

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliot

· CeeDee Lamb over 61.5 receiving yards (-112 at DraftKings)
· Michael Gallup over 57.5 receiving yards (-112 at DraftKings)
The Cleveland Browns have been one of the worst teams against slot receivers. That bodes well for stud rookie CeeDee Lamb, who is averaging over 75 yards and no fewer than 59 yards through three games this year. I also like Michael Gallup to go over his receiving yards prop. He’s had fewer receptions than Lamb, but his average yards per reception has been much higher in each game this season at 16.67, 29, and 23. Gallup and Prescott have also come close to hooking up on several other 40+ passes this year—it’s clear that he is the go-to deep target. I found the best line (both in terms of lowest threshold and lowest juice) at DraftKings so shop around. *hammer* *hammer*

ARI @ CAR:

Carolina Panther RB Mike Davis

· Kenyan Drake over 70.5 rushing yards (-112 at Bet MGM)
· ***BEST BET*** Mike Davis over 5.5 receptions (+117 at DraftKings)
· Mike Davis over 39.5 receiving yards (-112 at Bet MGM)
Kenyan Drake has been disappointing so far this season. But this week? We love the Drake. To quote Seinfeld: “How can you not like the Drake?”

We’ve seen him go off in the past—I can attest to that from a painful personal experience in the second half of my Fantasy Championship last year—and this is a great blowup spot. The Carolina Panthers have the worst run defense in the league and have given up the 2nd most fantasy points to opposing running backs. Drop. The. Hammer.
For the Panthers, I am banking on Mike Davis continuing to be a PPR machine in the absence of Christian McCaffrey. I think he tops his receiving yards prop easily as the Panthers should be playing from behind in this game. Davis had 8 receptions in each of his two starts this year, so I’m shocked that his line is only 5.5 receptions at DraftKings and even more shocked that it’s being offered at plus money. That’s a huge oversight by Vegas. Make them pay. I’m laying down the hammer like Thor.

BUF @ LVR:

Buffalo Bills RB Devin Singletary

· Josh Jacobs over 72.5 rushing yards (-112 at DraftKings)
· Darren Waller over 5.5 receptions (+105 at Bet MGM)
· Devin Singletary over 77.5 total yards (-124 at DraftKings)
· Devin Singletary over 58.5 rushing yards (-112 at FanDuel)
Devin Singletary made the most of his 17 touches last week accounting for over 125 of Buffalo’s yards on offense. Zack Moss is questionable to return from his toe injury, after getting limited sessions in practice this week. Look for head coach Sean McDermott to stick with the hot hand. Bill Belichick always schemes a way to control the opponent’s best player, so it was no surprise he targeted Darren Waller in last week’s matchup. Waller will bounce back from his abysmal performance in a big way today. He has to if the Raiders are going to stay in this game. Josh Jacobs will also be a key to a Raiders victory and slowing down a red-hot Josh Allen. I don’t think they will, but I do think they nail these props.

BAL @ WAS

Baltimore Ravens rookie RB J.K. Dobbins

· BAL -12.5 (+110 Odds Boost at FanDuel)
Baltimore’s offense is too unpredictable to find any juicy props here and Washington—well, they are a professional football team… but one without a name or talent. Lamar Jackson has heard the talk and will look to disprove the “haters” with a 2019-esque MVP performance. FanDuel is going to regret this Odds Boost promo. Hammer it.

Parlay Play of the Week:

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson

4-team money line parlay: SEA, NO, LAR, and BAL (+171 at DraftKings)*
There’s not much analysis to offer on this one. The Ravens and Rams should run away in their respective games and, on paper, the Seahawks and Saints should have their way as well. If you want to be ballsy, you can take NO -3 and SEA -5 instead of the money lines or look for an alternate game line for Baltimore and Los Angeles for a higher payout. It all depends on your level of risk aversion.

Bottom of the Barrel WK4 (NFL DFS)

Bottom of the Barrel
9/28/20
Chris Robin https://twitter.com/DetroitBeastie

I’ve long said what we do as fantasy sports writers is fleeting and quite fickle. Things change so fast day to day we don’t have long to bask in our glory. It’s a good pace if we fail miserably.

Regardless, we need to find common ground. Somewhere between, “I’m good at what I do.” or along the lines of, “Just following the numbers.”

We’re entering week 4 of the NFL season and little has taken shape. You read that right! The injuries have been piling up. With that comes opportunity! It’s up to us to be aware of the depth on each team and specifically on a positional basis!

Let’s take a look at week 4 and where we can take advantage of those opportunities!

QUARTERBACK

I have a new idea! A new feature if you will. Give out the most expensive player at each position as we get to it. Putting into perspective the B&B prices!

Lamar Jackson BAL @ WSH (21st)(FD-$9,600)(DK-$8,100)

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at QB!

Jared Goff LAR v NYG (11th)(FD-$7,500)(DK-$6,700)

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff

Goff and the Rams fell behind big to Buffalo then came alive. That was last week and this is now week 4. The Giants got absolutely hammered by San Francisco Sunday. Nick Mullens threw for 343 yards while their RB’s went nuts. What do you think Goff can do?

Matthew Stafford DET v NO (28th)(FD-$7,200)(DK-$5,900)

Detroit QB Matthew Stafford

We’re three weeks in and Stafford hasn’t looked right to me. I can’t put my finger on. Getting sacked and throwing awful interceptions. Regardless, Matt had a great showing Sunday in Arizona. 22 completions and 8.7 yards per attempt. With Kenny G back expect the Stat-pad-ford of old moving forward! New Orleans comes to town week 4 and I’m fully expecting 250+ passing yards and 2 TD passes as his floor in this one!

Ryan Fitzpatrick MIA v SEA (31st)(FD-$7,100)(DK-$5,400)

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick

Miami’s passing attack is coming together! Right? I mean Fitz has gone over 24 fantasy points his last two games. Ryan is averaging 8 yards per attempt and 226 yards a game. We all know the wheels are going to come off at a certain point but I’m riding it until they do! Sunday MIA is home vs. an awesomely talented offensive SEA team. Their defense however not so much. The Seahawks are giving up, on average, 28 points a game.

Baker Mayfield CLE @ DAL (30th)(FD-$7,000)(DK-$5,800)

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield

This one here isn’t so much about Baker but the Cowboys defense. In the first three week of the season they’ve given up 97 points! Ninety seven! Do the math that’s 32+ points a game! If my O/U math is correct this one sits at 55.5. Highest of the day, at this point. 31-28 final here I’m going to guess. Roster Baker in week 4! Off the record, I actually like all of Bakers commercials! Have you seen the new book club one? Classic Baker!

RUNNING BACK

Ezekiel Elliot DAL v CLE (29th)(FD-$9,000)(DK-$8,300)

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliot

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at RB!

Carlos Hyde SEA @ MIA (15th)(FD-$5,700)(DK-$5,300)

Seattle Seahawks RB Carlos Hyde

This one is super simple. Chris Carson got gator rolled. Was super nasty and quite dirty if you ask me. Thankfully, Carson will be fine. Knee sprain out 1-2 weeks. In the meantime this Seattle offense is averaging 37 points a game. I’d want any part of it I could get!

Alexander Mattison MIN @ HOU (28th)(FD-$5,500)(DK-$4,000)

Minnesota Vikings RB Alexander Mattison

Dalvin Cook is the play here but that’s not Bottom of the Barrel way! Cook has scored 20.8 fantasy points a game so far. Houston is allowing the 5th most fantasy points (27.4) a game to the opposing teams backfield! Last I checked Mattison is part of the MIN backfield! Look for the Vikes to open up their playbook Sunday. 0-4 would be an absolute disaster!

Myles Gaskin MIA v SEA (5th)(FD-$5,400)(DK-$5,000)

Miami Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin

Scroll up to the Ryan Fitzpatrick section. Ok good you’re back! Same principles apply! Myles carried the ball 22 times Sunday and caught 5 passes! If that’s the case again in week 4 I’m expecting some big numbers out of Gaskin! He also saw a 74.5% snap share. I’m telling you now get in now on the ground floor! Before his price goes way up!

Chase Edmonds ARZ @ CAR (31st)(FD-$5,300)(DK-$4,200)

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmunds

This is strictly a gut call. Drake is the RB1 and seeing all the work. Chase gets a few looks a game and I firmly believe he explodes for one in Carolina Sunday. Full disclosure, his price on FD is too steep for me. DK play only.

Travis Homer SEA @ MIA (16th)(FD-$5,200)(DK-$4,000)

Seattle Seahawks RB Travis Homer

How are the targets and touches going to pan out in the Seattle backfield? Maybe a Homer/Hyde combo? Whatever the case may be I want all the SEA offense I can get right now! Homer has a legit shot of seeing RB1 duties Sunday with Carson out.

Latavius Murray NO @ DET (24th)(FD-$4,900)(DK-$4,900)

New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray

What’s funny is the fact I thought Arizona was going to hammer the Lions Sunday. I think the Saints are going to wail on Detroit this Sunday! Alvin has looked like the best player in football. So much so what’s the use in playing Murray? Latavius has seen double digit touches in back to back weeks now. Plenty of room for him Sunday in Detroit!

J.J. Taylor NE @ KC (18th)(FD-$4,700)(DK-$4,000)

New England Patriots RB J.J. Taylor

Pay close attention to Damien Harris and his availability this coming Sunday. Same with James White. If both men are still out I’d take a flyer on JJ in a massive GPP. Rex Burkhead scored three times Sunday! Why can’t JJ? That’s normally how this team rolls!

WIDE-RECEIVER

Michael Thomas NO @ DET (24th)(FD-$8,800)(DK-$7,600)

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at WR!

CeeDee Lamb DAL v CLE (24th)(FD-$5,600)(DK-$5,400)

Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb

Lamb has looked awesome! Catching 16 of his 21 targets to start the season for 230 yards and a TD. Lamb will go face to face with a CLE defense that’s given up 5 TD’s to opposing WR’s. Lamb finds the end zone this week! Book it!

Justin Jefferson MIN @ HOU (9th)(FD-$5,400)(DK-$5,200)

Minnesota Vikings rookie WR Justin Jefferson

Why hello there Mr. Jefferson! What a coming out party! Have you noticed its taken a few weeks for these blue chip rookies to get going? No looking back now! Justin will be in ALL my lines until his price is raised!

Tre’Quan Smith NO @ DET (24th)(FD-$5,300)(DK-$5,000)

New Orleans Saints WR Tre’Quan Smith

Smith hasn’t hit that 75yd homerun of a TD yet this season! The targets are there! Alvin Kamara is as well. Don’t fret don’t frown Sunday in Detroit is Tre’Quan’s time!

James Washington PIT @ TEN (19th)(FD-$4,900)(DK-$4,800)

Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington

Did you know James led the team in targets and receptions Sunday? Juju is the big dog on this team in terms of receiving BUT if Diontae can’t play due to a concussion then watch out for Washington.

Adam Humphries TEN v PIT (25th)(FD-$4,600)(DK-$4,000)

Tennessee Titans WR Adam Humphries

Adam has taken full advantage of a AJ Brown-less Titans team. He’s also their full time slot guy now. At these bottom of the barrel prices sing me up!

Gabriel Davis BUF @ OAK (3rd)(FD-$4,600)(DK-$3,200)

Buffalo Bills rookie WR Gabriel Davis

This new Buffalo Bills passing game is making a star out of everyone! Again, pay close attention to John Brown and his status Sunday. If he’s out I’m firing up Davis in any and all lineups! He’s not a flash in the pan folks, this kid is here to stay!

TIGHT END

Travis Kelce KC v NE (5th)(FD-$7,600)(DK-$6,800)

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at TE!

Dalton Schultz DAL v CLE (28th)(FD-$4,900)(DK-$4,300)

Dallas Cowboys TE Dalton Schultz

Dalton is seeing a ton of volume, target wise. I know the excitement around him heading into week 3 was very high. Be patient and go back to the well this weekend. Cleveland has surrendered 22 catches and 3 total TD’s to the TE position already this season.

Logan Thomas WSH v BAL (30th)(FD-$4,900)(DK-$3,500)

Washington Football Team TE Logan Thomas

His volume alone makes him a play. Add in his cheap pricing across the platform and bam you have your DFS TE for week 4!

Dawson Knox BUF @ OAK (11th)(FD-$4,600)(DK-$3,500)

Buffalo Bills TE Dawson Knox

Something something Josh Allen something something MVP.

Dan Arnold ARZ @ CAR (4th)(FD-$4,300)(DK-$2,700)

DFS is all a matter of perspective and opportunity. With Maxx Williams on IR, set to miss 3 weeks, that makes Dan Arizona’s TE1. This offense starts and ends with Hopkins and Drake but at these prices who’s to say Arnold can’t be productive!

Gerald Everett LAR v NYG (6th)(FD-$4,200)(DK-$2,500)

Los Angeles Rams TE Gerald Everett

Nothing special to say here. Only the fact the Giants are in town after taking a drubbing at the hands of San Francisco. Does Everett get loose for a TD?

Adam Trautman NO @ DET (12th)(FD-$4,000)(DK-$2,500)

New Orleans Saints rookie TE Adam Trautman

Adam might be my favorite cheapy TE play of the weekend! As I’ve said before this DFS game is all about opportunity! If Cook can’t play then I’m locking Adam in all of my lines!

Here are two of my sample lines I’m going to use for week 4! Keep in mind these lines are for entertainment purposes! Please play responsible!

Fanduel 10/04 1p MAIN

Also look for updated lines closer to the start of the season! This Thursday 10/1 and Sunday morning 10/4!

Draftkings 10/04 1p MAIN

Welcome back to DFS CheatSheet’s Hammer Time with the Gambling Guru! Each week, I’ll share my favorite bets to help give you an edge over the odds makers. Because let’s be honest, the only thing better than watching football is winning some money on it. LET’S GOOO!

*Note: The odds listed are accurate as of the time of writing, but the market is subject to change—shop around for the best lines. Gambling problem? Call 1-800-GAMBLER.

Week 2 Betting Recap:
Wow. What a huge week for the Gambling Guru (and you, if you’ve been following my best bets and player props). First, the Nick Chubb to score the 1st TD prop (+400 at DraftKings and +650 on FanDuel) hit on Thursday night. That was a nice payout, especially if you did the max $20 for the DraftKings promo or took advantage of the higher odds on FanDuel. The Chubb over 71.5 rushing yards also smashed. The Joe Burrow over 23.5 rushing yards narrowly missed—at one point in the game he actually had it before taking a loss on a subsequent play—and the Same Game Parlay missed one leg because the total points went over. That provided a profitable 2-3 start to the weekend.

On Sunday, my best bets were split down the middle, but injuries to Saquon Barkley, Parris Campbell were partly to blame. Green Bay and San Francisco easily covered, while Kansas City avoided an upset and Tennessee pushed in the teaser. But we also learned just how bad Minnesota and Philadelphia are this year; the Vikings and Eagles are officially on the list of teams I can’t trust. Miami got a backdoor cover against Buffalo that I’m going to chalk up to a combination of Ryan Fitz“magic” and the game delay caused by the wild weather. However you slice it, it’s a lackluster 11-12 performance in the main slate.

The Monday night game was the big winner, however, as almost all of my player props hit. Alvin Kamara scored the first touchdown (+550 at DraftKings) then scored a second time (+600 at FanDuel). If you bet both props and Kamara to score at any time (a mis-priced -105 at FanDuel), you had a big day. Kamara also crushed his over 4.5 receptions, 37.5 receiving yards, and 90.5 total yards props. Likewise, Josh Jacobs hit the over on 2.5 receptions, 68.5 rushing yards, and 85.5 total yards. He failed to find the end zone and narrowly missed his over 17.5 receiving yards line with 17 yards, which killed 3 props. Still, that’s a dominant 9-3 finish to the Week 2.

Week 2 Record: 22-18 (55%)

Let’s see if we can keep it going for Week 3, starting with some TNF props…

TNF Player Props and Bets: MIA @ JAX
· Myles Gaskin over 16.5 receiving yards (-122 at FanDuel)
· Myles Gaskin over 2.5 receptions (-148 at DraftKings)
· Mike Gesicki over 51.5 receiving yards (-110 at FanDuel)
· Over 48.5 total points (-110 at DraftKings)
· MIA +3 (-110 at DraftKings)
Minshew Mania may be in full effect, but Jacksonville’s defense is still a bottom feeder. So far this season, running backs have gashed the Jaguars when catching balls out of the backfield. Myles Gaskin has been impressive thus far as the surprise starter in Miami, so I expect that to continue tonight. Sure, there’s always a slim chance that receiving back specialist Matt Brieda steals the show, I’m confident coach Brian Flores will ride the hot hand. I think Gaskin goes over 2 receptions and smashes the receiving yards line (I’d even bet it up to 20 yards if the line continues to move). I also love Mike Gesicki to hit on his 49.5 receiving yards prop. Through two games, the Dolphins young tight end has been targeted 16 times, logging 160 yards on 11 receptions. DeVante Parker was removed from the injury report Wednesday, but playing on a short week after fighting through a hamstring injury only boosts the odds for Gesicki to be the focal point of this passing attack led by Fitz“magic”. I anticipate a high-scoring, messy affair. I’ll take the points with the Dolphins simply because I believe in the coaching staff. Fear the beard, fade the ’stache, and hammer these bets.

Sunday Spreads and Player Props:

Cincinnati Bengal’s RB Joe Mixon

CIN @ PHI:
· ***BEST BET*** Miles Sanders over 109.5 total yards (-112 at DraftKings)
· DeSean Jackson over 55.5 receiving yards (-112 at DraftKings)
· Joe Mixon under 65.5 rushing yards (-112 at DraftKings)
· PHI -4.5 (+105 at FanDuel)
To quote the great Marshawn Lynch, “you know why I’m here.” I’m taking my Birds to cover 4.5 points and defeat the Bengal’s for the first time in 20 years (yes, seriously). I’ve been wrong on a lot of my Eagles picks this year, but that can only mean I’m due for a hot streak. Right? There is no such thing as a must-win in Week 3 but if Philadelphia can’t come away with a win against Cincinnati, the season is lost. Luckily, when Wentz’s back is against the wall, he responds. And right now, not only is his back pressed up against the wall, but a large Philadelphian mob is waiting on the other side with pitchforks and torches. In terms of player props, I’m sticking with Miles Sanders this week and fading the lead back on the other side. The offensive and defensive lines for the Bengal’s are among the worst in the league. That bodes well for Sanders, who I think easily surpasses the total yards mark, and poorly for Joe Mixon, who I think will run the rock less than 15 times. I’ll fade the DeSean Jackson touchdown prop this week (fool me once, shame on me; fool me twice… you’re off the best bets), but I will take the over on his yardage prop since Jalen Reagor is out.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs

LV @ NE:
· Josh Jacobs over 2.5 receptions (-110 at Bet MGM)
· Josh Jacobs over 15.5 receiving yards (-110 at Bet MGM)
· NE -6 (-110 at DraftKings)
Bill Belichick always tries to take away the opponent’s best weapon. You could argue that Josh Jacobs is said player, but recent bias would make a strong case for Darren Waller. Either way, I like Jacobs as a reliable check down option. He’s embraced the extra work in the passing game and should get 3 catches easily and just over 5 yards per reception is a reasonable ask. I also think the Patriots will come prepared after the heartbreak in Seattle last week. Meanwhile, the Raiders are primed for a letdown after their upset win in their stadium’s inaugural game.

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley

CHI @ ATL:
· David Montgomery over 14.5 receiving yards (-112 at DraftKings)
· David Montgomery over 52.5 rushing yards (-110 at FanDuel)
· Calvin Ridley to score (-112 at DraftKings)
· Atlanta -3 (-104 at DraftKings)
Fact: The Atlanta Falcons have had the worst secondary this season. This should be a get-right game for Mitch Trubisky, which will buy him at least one more week before he’s supplanted by Nick Foles, and Allen Robinson, who has been dragging down fantasy teams this season. That being said, the lines are rather chalky. I see more value on the lines for David Montgomery, who has been Chicago’s lone bright spot thus far. On the other side, I have Ridley scoring yet another touchdown this week (I just can’t quit him) but am not touching the inflated line Vegas has posted. The Bears are undefeated, but their victories came against the lowly Lions and the Barkley-less Giants. “Matty Ice” may be too hot to handle.

Buffalo Bills RB Devin Singletary

LAR @ BUF:
· Devin Singletary over 60.5 rushing yards (-110 at Bet MGM)
The Rams-Bills game is one of several great match-ups in Week 3. I’m leaning towards Buffalo, but not enough to make a call here. My favorite prop here is Devin Singletary to go over the rushing yards. Zack Moss will not play so Singletary will have the backfield all to himself. Well, unless T.J. Yeldon gets some carries. He won’t. Hammer the over.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson

HOU @ PIT:
· Diontae Johnson over 61.5 receiving yards (-110 at FanDuel)
This one is another tough matchup. It’s hard to imagine Houston starting the season 0-3, but no one would fault them given their brutal opening schedule. Maybe a loss would put Bill O’Brian on the hot seat (probably not, but Texans fans can dream). The under on the rushing props for James Connor and David Johnson are enticing, but I am avoiding the unpredictable nightmare. Nothing else really stands out, except rising star Diontae Johnson. JuJu Smith-Schuster should draw the Texans top corner, which could mean Johnson gets loose. I’ll take the over 61.5 receiving yards while I still can.

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry

TEN @ MIN:
· Jonnu Smith over 41.5 receiving yards (-112 at FanDuel)
· TEN -2.5 (-115 at DraftKings)
I’ve already written off Minnesota this season. The defense is a far cry from what it was just a few seasons ago. The secondary in particular is atrocious, which is great news for Corey Davis and Jonnu Smith. I prefer the latter—partly because the loss of Anthony Barr should help up the middle of the field for Smith and partly because I find it hard to trust Corey Davis to be consistent. Even if Tannehill throws for just 150 yards, Smith should smash this line. I’m also looking for the Titans to smash the Vikings and cover the 3. *hammering sounds*

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler

CAR @ LAC:
· ***BEST BET*** Austin Ekeler over 89.5 total yards (-109 at DraftKings)
· Austin Ekeler over 60.5 rushing yards (-110 at FanDuel)
· Austin Ekeler over 26.5 receiving yards (-110 at FanDuel)
Another best bet? That’s right! I’m all in on Austin Ekeler this week. The Panthers had the worst run defense last year (which probably prompted them to go entirely defensive in the draft) and not much has changed. Joshua Kelley will eat into his carries and may vulture a touchdown, but there will be plenty of yards to go around. Give me the over on Ekeler’s rushing yards. Give me the over on Ekeler’s receiving yards. Give me the over on Ekeler’s total yards. Hammer, hammer, hammer!

Colts rookie RB Jonathan Taylor

NYJ @ IND:
· ***BEST BET*** Jonathan Taylor over 77.5 rushing yards (-112 at DraftKings)
Surprise! A third best bet! The Jets could barely be called a professional football team when the season started, let alone now when they are crippled at the skilled positions. Who is Sam Darnold going to throw to? Can the ghost of Frank Gore do anything on the ground? The Colts will take a commanding lead and then it’s J.T. time. He may even double this line.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson

DAL @ SEA:
· Chris Carson over 20.5 receiving yards (+106 at FanDuel)
There are a lot of juicy options in this game, especially given how Seattle’s secondary has played through two weeks. Unfortunately, Vegas has put up some chalky lines for Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, and rookie CeeDee Lamb. I do like D.K. Metcalf now that the Seahawks are finally letting Russ cook, but my favorite bet here is on Chris Carson. He doesn’t scream “pass-catcher” but the bruising running back has put up huge numbers as a receiver so far this year. Vegas is asleep behind the wheel here with this line of 20.5 yards. Hammer the over.

Arizona RB Kenyan Drake

DET @ ARI:
· Kenyan Drake over 77.5 rushing yards (-110 at FanDuel)
I see Arizona running away with this one. Literally. It’s a high number, but Kenyan Drake is due for a big game and this may just be it. I love “the Drake” this week.

TB @ DEN:
· Noah Fant over 3.5 receptions (-139 at Bet MGM)
· Leonard Fournette over 51.5 rushing yards (-110 on FanDuel)
· TB -6 (-110 at DraftKings)
The Denver Broncos have been decimated by injuries. Drew Lock and Courtland Sutton are out, and rookie Jerry Jeudy is a game-time decision. Hammer that 3.5 receptions. Tampa Bay has a stiff run defense, so I think Melvin Gordon will not be able to carry the load. That just leaves just Noah Fant as the safety blanket for backup quarterback Jeff Driskel. Leonard Fournette, on the other hand, showed he could carry the load last week after Ronald Jones was benched following a fumble. Even if Lenny doesn’t get the start this week, he’ll take over at some point. He’ll crush this number as the Buccaneers sit on the ball and run out the clock. Hammer it.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara

SNF Player Props and Bets: GB @ NO
· Alvin Kamara over 5.5 receptions (-139 at Bet MGM)
· Alvin Kamara to score (-167 at DraftKings)
· NO money line (-175 at DraftKings)
Can we postpone this game until both Michael Thomas and Davante Adams are healthy? Even without these stars, the game should be a fun one. Without knowing the status of Adams, it’s hard to pick a prop confidently for Green Bay. On the New Orleans side of things, I’ll stick with my new favorite running back (he won me quite a bit of money and has been clutch in fantasy), Alvin Kamara. He’s been the focal point of this offense in the absence of Michael Thomas. I like him over the receptions and think he’ll reach the endzone yet again. This game would be a pick ’em on a neutral site so it will be close. I’m leaning Saints if Adams sits, but that may just be because I don’t have any Packers on my fantasy teams.

 

MNF Player Props and Bets: KC @ BAL:
· Clyde Edwards-Helaire to score (+105 at Bet MGM)
· KC money line (+148 at FanDuel)
I can’t remember the last time we had such a big Monday Night Football match-up. I’m hesitant to fade this game entirely and just enjoy the fireworks, but I’ll make a couple of picks for my fellow gambling degenerates. I understand why Baltimore is a home favorite and that they match up well here, but I can’t pass up on the opportunity to bet the money line on Super Bowl LIV MVP and future Hall of Fame Patrick Mahomes as an underdog. I also love the mis-priced odds for Clyde Edwards-Helaire to score at Bet MGM (another teachable moment—always shop around! This line was almost -200 at FanDuel and DraftKings).

Parlay Play of the Week:

Welcome back to DFS CheatSheet’s Hammer Time with the Gambling Guru! Each week, I’ll share my favorite bets to help give you an edge over the oddsmakers. Because let’s be honest, the only thing better than watching football is winning some money on it. LET’S GOOO!

Week 2 Betting Recap:
Wow. What a huge week for the Gambling Guru (and you, if you’ve been following my best bets and player props). First, the Nick Chubb to score the 1st TD prop (+400 at DraftKings and +650 on FanDuel) hit on Thursday night. That was a nice payout, especially if you did the max $20 for the DraftKings promo or took advantage of the higher odds on FanDuel. The Chubb over 71.5 rushing yards also smashed. The Joe Burrow over 23.5 rushing yards narrowly missed—at one point in the game he actually had it before taking a loss on a subsequent play—and the Same Game Parlay missed one leg because the total points went over. That provided a profitable 2-3 start to the weekend.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow

On Sunday, my best bets were split down the middle, but injuries to Saquon Barkley, Parris Campbell were partly to blame. Green Bay and San Francisco easily covered, while Kansas City avoided an upset and Tennessee pushed in the teaser. But we also learned just how bad Minnesota and Philadelphia are this year; the Vikings and Eagles are officially on the list of teams I can’t trust. Miami got a backdoor cover against Buffalo that I’m going to chalk up to a combination of Ryan Fitz“magic” and the game delay caused by the wild weather. However you slice it, it’s a lackluster 11-12 performance in the main slate.

The Monday night game was the big winner, however, as almost all of my player props hit. Alvin Kamara scored the first touchdown (+550 at DraftKings) then scored a second time (+600 at FanDuel). If you bet both props and Kamara to score at any time (a mispriced -105 at FanDuel), you had a big day. Kamara also crushed his over 4.5 receptions, 37.5 receiving yards, and 90.5 total yards props. Likewise, Josh Jacobs hit the over on 2.5 receptions, 68.5 rushing yards, and 85.5 total yards. He failed to find the end zone and narrowly missed his over 17.5 receiving yards line with 17 yards, which killed 3 props. Still, that’s a dominant 9-3 finish to the Week 2.

Week 2 Record: 22-18 (55%)

Let’s see if we can keep it going for Week 3, starting with some TNF props…

TNF Player Props and Bets: MIA @ JAX

Miami Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin

· Myles Gaskin over 16.5 receiving yards (-122 at FanDuel)
· Myles Gaskin over 2.5 receptions (-148 at DraftKings)
· Mike Gesicki over 51.5 receiving yards (-110 at FanDuel)
· Over 48.5 total points (-110 at DraftKings)
· MIA +3 (-110 at DraftKings)
Minshew Mania may be in full effect, but Jacksonville’s defense is still a bottom feeder. So far this season, running backs have gashed the Jaguars when catching balls out of the backfield. Myles Gaskin has been impressive thus far as the surprise starter in Miami, so I expect that to continue tonight. Sure, there’s always a slim chance that receiving back specialist Matt Brieda steals the show, I’m confident coach Brian Flores will ride the hot hand. I think Gaskin goes over 2 receptions and smashes the receiving yards line (I’d even bet it up to 20 yards if the line continues to move). I also love Mike Gesicki to hit on his 49.5 receiving yards prop. Through two games, the Dolphins young tight end has been targeted 16 times, logging 160 yards on 11 receptions. DeVante Parker was removed from the injury report Wednesday, but playing on a short week after fighting through a hamstring injury only boosts the odds for Gesicki to be the focal point of this passing attack led by Fitz“magic”. I anticipate a high-scoring, messy affair. I’ll take the points with the Dolphins simply because I believe in the coaching staff. Fear the beard, fade the ’stache, and hammer these bets.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew

That’s all for now. Check back next week for more favorite picks and player props.

Bottom of the Barrel WK3 (NFL DFS)

Bottom of the Barrel
9/23/20
Chris Robin https://twitter.com/DetroitBeastie

Awful. Shocking. Painful. Nightmare. Just a few words to explain NFL week 2 on Sunday.

Much like anything unpleasant we need to forgive. That doesn’t mean we forget. Only means we grow and learn and file it away as a mistake. Exactly what we should do ahead of week 3. It will test our resolve, our attitude and also our moods. Brighter days are ahead.

Let’s get into Bottom of the Barrel week 3!

QUARTERBACK

I have a new idea! A new feature if you will. Give out the most expensive player at each position as we get to it. Putting into perspective the B&B prices!

Lamar Jackson BAL vs. KC (FD-$9,400)(DK-$8,200)(DK-$9,400)

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at QB!

Jared Goff LAR @ BUF (29th)(FD-$7,200)(DK-$5,600)

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff

Goff hasn’t thrown a ton through the first two weeks but he’s been very efficient! In Buffalo this week isn’t a juicy match-up but that only interests me more for DFS purposes!

Mitchell Trubisky CHI @ ATL (25th)(FD-$7,500)(DK-$5,700)

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky

Oh boy! Mitch Mitch Mitch oh how I loathe thee. Trubisky has an outstanding match-up Sunday in ATL. A Falcons team that completely folded Sunday in Dallas. In week 1 they gave up 38 to SEA then 40 even in Dallas. Playing Mitch has everything to do with Atlanta not so much Mitch and the Bears.

Justin Herbert LAC v CAR (12th)(FD-$7,200)(DK-$5,900)

Los Angeles Chargers rookie QB Justin Herbert

I wrote my notes over the weekend having no idea what the Charger team doctor had done. I have no words really. Herbert looked fantastic on Sunday v KC. I fully expect the coaching staff to open it up and let Justin do his thing.

Daniel Jones NYG v SF (15th)(FD-$6,900)(DK-$5,500)

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones

This one has so many layers to it! Saquon is on IR. Bosa is on the IR. Where does that leave Danny Dimes? Without Barkley what does the NYG offense look like? More passing I’d assume right?

Jeff Driskel DEN v TB (22nd)(FD-$6,500)(DK-$5,300)

Denver Broncos QB Jeff Driskel

Another tough real life situation has given Jeff the starting nod this weekend at home vs. TB. Some guys are really good back QB’s! Does Jeff fit in that category? Only time will tell but I do love his price in our lines! KJ Hamler, Noah Fant, Jerry Jeudy and Melvin Gordon III are all at Jeff’s disposal.

RUNNING BACK

Ezekiel Elliot DAL @ SEA (29th)(FD-$9,000)(DK-$8,300)

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliot

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at RB!

Mike Davis CAR @ LAC (6th)(FD-$6,000)(DK-$5,100)

Carolina Panther RB Mike Davis

Sometimes injuries open the door for certain players and we get all wide eyed and bushy tailed. This article doesn’t necessarily mean I’m all in on these guys. What if I took the time to mention a player for the sole purpose of telling you to fade him? That’s what I’m doing here. Fade Davis!

Devin Singletary BUF v LAR (21st)(FD-$5,900)(DK-$4,900)

Buffalo Bills RB Devin Singletary

Moss or Devin? Devin or Moss? That’s the question here right? Both have a favorable match-up Sunday v the Rams. Between the two I’m rolling with Devin.

Jerick McKinnon SF @ NYG (7th)(FD-$5,700)(DK-$4,900)

San Francisco 49ers RB Jerick McKinnon

Another team hit hard by the week 2 injuries, San Francisco. Their RB1 and 2, Mostert and Coleman. In walks McKinnon! Who has look explosive if I may say! Recent news has come down saying Jeff Wilson Jr., “could see the most action” in week 3. To me, all this is doing is throwing people off Jerick’s sent. The upside and his price makes this a homerun!

Antonio Gibson WSH @ CLE (14th)(FD-$5,500)(DK-$4,700)

Washington rookie RB Antonio Gibson

The Browns defense through two weeks has been no slouch. Especially v rush yards. The volume Gibson will see Sunday alone makes him a nice play. 15 carries 5 targets?

D’Andre Swift DET @ ARZ (22nd)(FD-$5,300)(DK-$5,000)

Detroit Lions rookie RB D’Andre Swift

Let’s be honest, the Lions look awful. So why am dropping Swift as a DFS start on Sunday? I fully expect ARZ to put up 40+ points on Sunday. In turn Stafford, the WR core and Swift will be on the field A LOT! Its elementary dear Watson!

Jeff Wilson Jr. SF @ NYG (7th)(FD-$5,200)(DK-$4,000)

Wilson was a late addition to B&B given the news from the San Francisco Chronicle. It briefly stated Wilson could see a bulk of the workload this week in New York. I’ve learned over the years to take this kind of thing with a grain of salt. Although we still need to prepare. My friends over at Rotoballer and their thoughts on Wilson. https://www.rotoballer.com/jeff-wilson-jr-rb-sf-week-3-waiver-wire-pickups/784347

WIDE RECEIVER

DeAndre Hopkins ARZ v DET (19th)(FD-$8,500)(DK-$7,900)

Arizona Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at WR!

CeeDee Lamb DAL @ SEA (28th)(FD-$5,600)(DK-$5,400)

Dallas Cowboys rookie WR CeeDee Lamb

Lamb has been a pleasant surprise hasn’t he? We all had our own expectations for him headed into the season and it’s nice when something goes according to plan! The Seattle secondary is far removed from the Legion of Boom days.

Darius Slayton NYG v SF (20th)(FD-$5,500)(DK-$4,900)

New York Giants WR Darious Slayton

Strange enough I just had a conversation with a friend on twitter about Slayton! Darius is dependent on big plays. The textbook boom/bust play. So we have to be careful and pick out spots with him. The 49ers are fantastic up front even with the loss of Bosa. I have an odd feeling Darius gets loose on a 50-60 yard TD this weekend.

Tre’Quan Smith NO v GB (32nd)(FD-$5,400)(DK-$4,200)

New Orleans Saint WR Tre’Quan Smith

How many of you watched Monday Night Football? Saints v Raiders. I had a blast watching the game and I kept a close eye on Tre’Quan. While Thomas sits Smith will be relevant. I think it would be smart of Sean Payton and Brees to get Smith more involved Sunday v GB!

Corey Davis TEN @ MIN (23rd)(FD-$5,300(DK-$5,200)

Tennessee Titan WR Corey Davis

Is this the real deal? Is Davis finally breaking out? Who the heck knows! We’ve been talking about it for years! I know this will sound weird but it’s not business if Corey is here to stay. All I care about is this Sunday! Titans in Minnesota is a plus PLUS match-up! 29th overall ranked defense kind of plus. Back to back weeks with a TD for Corey coming right up!

Laviska Shenault Jr. JAC v MIA (9th)(FD-$5,300)(DK-$4,300)

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault Jr.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed how the Jags have used Laviska the first 2 games of the season. What excites me most is the fact Jacksonville is just learning what a Swiss army knife Shenault can be!

Curtis Samuel CAR @ LAC (8th)(FD-$5,100)(DK-$4,000)

Carolina Panther WR Curtis Samuel

What if I told you Carolina is going to use Curtis as a running back AND a wide receiver Sunday? He’s no CMC but at his price and potential usage could be a perfect storm!

TIGHT END

George Kittle SF @ NYG (5th)(FD-$7,500)(DK-$6,300)

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at TE!

Logan Thomas WSH @ CLE (26th)(FD-$4,900)(DK-$3,700)

Washington Football Team TE Logan Thomas

Haskins targeted Logan nine times last week! That’s fantastic for any skill position let alone the tight-end! Have you seen his price on FD and DK this weekend? You’d be negligent not to roster him!

Dalton Schultz DAL @ SEA (21st)(FD-$4,900)(DK-$4,500)

Dallas Cowboys TE Dalton Schultz

Dalton is the de-facto TE in Dallas now without Jarwin. Yeah yeah Seattle I hear you. For these prices you’re only looking for a few grabs. Consider that done!

Drew Sample CIN @ PHI (30th)(FD-$4,800)(DK-$3,500)

Cincinnati Bengal TE Drew Sample

You know what I just thought of? Why are my B&B plays this week so closely connected to our seasonal waiver wire adds this week? Free and/or cheap plays with added targets and touches that’s why!

Eric Ebron PIT v HOU (23rd)(FD-$4,700)(DK-$4,300)

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Eric Ebron

Houston is allowing 12+ fantasy points to opposing TE’s so far this season.

O.J. Howard TB @ DEN (27th)(FD-$4,700)(DK-$3,500)

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE OJ Howard

This is just my goodbye to OJ Howard. He can be dropped in any and all formats now. My love for him goes back quite some time. I thought you were the one OJ. I’m heartbroken.

Here are two of my sample lines I’m going to use for week 3! Keep in mind these lines are for entertainment purposes! Please play responsible!

Fanduel 9/27 Main

Also look for updated lines closer to the start of the season! This Thursday 9/24 and Sunday morning 9/27!

Draftkings 9/27 Main
