NFL Week 12 Main Slate GPP Targets

By on in NFL.
Some COVID/Injury news after this was written: Jonathan Taylor hit the COVID list so look for Wilkins and Hynes to split carries. If you think the Colts will be trailing I don’t mind the shift to Hynes but I think Wilkins will have the more predictable running back work. Whether that means more fantasy points is up for debate. Christian McCaffrey¬†has officially been ruled out which makes Mike Davis another […]

NFL Thanksgiving Slate GPP Targets

By on in NFL.
Quarterback: It’s going to be really hard to get away from Deshaun now that there are only two games on the slate. For what it’s worth I think every quarterback has an argument to be played. Watson has the highest ceiling on the slate though, indoors, against a pretty bad Lions’ defense. With a run game that has been pathetic without David Johnson, Watson has been forced to shoulder the […]

NFL Week 11 Main Slate GPP Targets

By on in NFL.
Happy Taysom Hill week! Let’s get to it! Quarterbacks: We’re doing it, we’re going back to Lamar. He is coming in about $1000-2000 cheaper on both FanDuel and DraftKings from what he was priced at earlier in the year and after a fairly miserable game against the Patriots last week, I don’t really see the masses going back to Lamar this week. The Ravens are back at home where their […]

NFL Week 10 Main Slate GPP Targets

By on in NFL.
Week 10 sees several prominent offense off of the main slate with the Falcons, Cowboys, and Chiefs on their byes, and the Ravens on Sunday Night Football. Slates like this leave things a little more wide open as aside from the Packers, there really is not a strong must-play stack. This should in theory lead to some pretty evenly distributed ownership percentages for every position. The Optimizer loves Green Bay […]

NFL Week 9 Main Slate GPP Targets

By on in NFL.
The Optimizer loved the Chiefs last week and for good reason! Mahomes went off for 5 touchdowns and a Chiefs stack with Dalvin Cook found its way to a ton of winning lineups. This week? The Optimizer loves the Bills as they welcome the Seahawks to town in a game with a total of 55 points which is easily the highest on the board. No weather issues this week that […]

NFL Week 8 Main Slate GPP Targets

By on in NFL.
As we close out the first half of the 2020 season we are finally preparing for some inclement weather this weekend! That’s right, before constructing your lineups, check the local weather reports as Cincinnati, Cleveland, Green Bay, Kansas City and Chicago are supposed to have winds over 20 mph. Just like the game on Thursday night in Carolina, we see a serious downgrade to the deep ball pass-catchers and quarterbacks. […]

Week 8 NFL Thursday Showdown Slate

By on in NFL.
On paper, Thursday Night Football looks like a barnburner with two potent offenses, two pretty bad defenses, and a Vegas point total of 51.5. On closer inspection, there looks like some pretty severe winds and rain tonight which may lend to both teams keeping the ball on the ground. This is a spot where both quarterbacks are going to be pretty good plays at the MVP spot and I would […]

NFL Week 7 Main Slate GPP Targets

By on in NFL.
I hope Week 6 treated you all well! We had some good hits off of our picks including players from that Vikings/Falcons shootout, as well as some more under owned players from the Titans/Texans game that went into overtime. Alexander Mattison was a nice reminder that chalk plays are not always the best route to go, especially in large-scale GPPs. We have an 11-game slate to get through in Week […]

NFL Week 7 Showdown Slate

By on in NFL.
Not a very exciting game tonight unless you are an Eagles or Giants fan but nonetheless we have a Showdown Slate which means there is money to be made!¬† With so many star players missing from the game, there is going to be a ton of value and potential for some cheaper players to hit. Here are a few players I will be targeting tonight!   MVP Targets: Look, quarterbacks […]

Week 6 NFL Main Slate GPP Targets

By on in NFL.
Week 5 was just one of those weeks where a player like Chase Claypool goes off for 4 touchdowns and completely tilts a slate. Some our picks went off last week and some of them were pretty flat *ahem Jimmy G. This week keep an eye out leading up to Sunday as we could potentially have a couple more postponements with COVID-19 positive tests. We have some big totals on […]
