Daily Fantasy Five NFL Week 4: Raiding the Oakland Raiders Roster

Daily Fantasy Five NFL Week 4: Raiding the Oakland Raiders Roster

There’s just a ton of great Daily Fantasy Football articles out there, including some articles from my colleagues at other sites and from some great writers at many other sites.

My goal here is to someday get a group of writers to help me, where we can post an article like this each morning, showing the top new Daily fantasy Football articles of the day.

But until then, I’ll churn some of these out once or twice a week, and we’ll go from there!

Last night’s Ravens-Steelers game was about exactly as we thought it was going to be. Michael Vick disappointed, Antonio Brown had a stinker, Le’Veon Bell was about average and Josh Scobee kicked (and missed) enough field goals to warrant being ranked 12th among kickers this week by me!

Daily Fantasy Five: Getting a Grip on NFL Week 2

Daily Fantasy Five: Getting a Grip on NFL Week 2

While my goal is to post something on Daily Fantasy Sports every day, sometimes it’s going to be a handful of my favorite Daily Fantasy links, which I’ll call the Daily Fantasy Five.

Yesterday, we posted our FanDuel Cheat Sheet Week 2, and I plan on posting that every week. That doesn’t count as one of my favorite links, but I wanted you to be aware of it, too. While it defaults to FanDuel, you can also use the dropdown to use it for Draft Kings, FantasyAces and Yahoo!.

Daily Fantasy Five!

 

1. Week 2 Daily Fantasy Football: Value Based Drafting Targets

Over on SoCalledFantasyExperts.com, Michael Tomlin @Tomlin3 wrote a great piece that broke down how he uses a common strategy for yearly Fantasy, but for DFS – value based drafting. Like me, he thinks Jameis Winston offers great value for Week 2 against the Saints, and he shares a solid “All-Value Team” that you’ll enjoy.

Sunday Prayers for Big GPP Tournament Wins?

Sunday Prayers for Big GPP Tournament Wins?

Most games will be over by the time the sun sets tonight, so you’ll want to get your lineups in there for GPP tournaments by 12:30pm ET, then adjust accordingly as the day rolls on.

Some pitchers still looking for their first win include: Tony Cingrani, Edwin Jackson, Ubaldo Jimenez and Matt Moore.

Also, something to keep in mind on Sundays is that many times, a catcher will get a day off, allowing his backup to get the day start after a night game. This is a great way to move in some cheap backup catchers into your lineup.
 

Sunday’s Daily Fantasy Baseball Links

Unfortunately, today I went golfing with my brother and nephews. Every year, we do a weekend dedicated to my father on Masters weekend, down at my brother’s place in Lake Okeechobee. This is the 7th Annual Don Gonos Memorial Masters Weekend Extravaganza! We get together and do all the things my dad loved – golfing, drinking, fishing, playing poker, watching golf, drinking, eating, arguing, saying regretful things, drinking, apologizing, gambling and drinking.

So today’s links aren’t directly to the columns, but rather, to the website that hosts them. So really, you’re just two clicks away from fantastic Daily Fantasy Baseball content. Leave a comment or tweet me @DavidGonos, if I missed any articles.

Don’t feel bad if you lose today – even God has a tough time choosing catchers on Sundays!

I’ll still be playing in some tournaments and some 50/50s, so let us know who your favorite picks are in the comments!

Seeing Red on a Manic Monday

Seeing Red on a Manic Monday

Here are your top Daily Fantasy Baseball articles of the day! If you know of an article I’ve missed, drop it in the comment section, or tweet it at me @DavidGonos.

LockerRoomFantasySports.com – News & Notes

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a big fan of what these guys do on a nightly basis, going through and handpicking some of the best tweets and tidbits from the day’s action. It’s a nice primer for starting the day in baseball.

It’s just crazy to think that Chris Colabello is leading the American League with 11 RBI so far. He’s seeing the ball really well, right now, and he’ll face off against lefty Scott Kazmir this afternoon! Colabello’s already up in the $8,000 range on Draft Day, but he’s $3,900 at Draft Kings, and $2,500 on FanDuel. The salaries have climbed a bit this past week, but he could still be a bargain in the early matchups.

(With that said, he’s a 30-year-old slugger, whose batting average should dip considerably sooner than later. I’m not a huge fan of him in traditional Fantasy play just yet.)

ESPN.com – Daily Notes

Fellow Rays fan (and current Fantasy Baseball Writer of the Year) Jason Collette takes care of the Daily Notes today. He likes Cardinals’ SP Michael Wacha at home against the Reds (Joey Votto’s not having the best start to the season), and then John Lackey against Texas.

Draft Day, Daily Fantasy Baseball SitesInterestingly, he also has Reds SP Tony Cingrani ranked third, so he must expect a low-scoring Cards/Reds affair. Load up on Red Sox against SP Tanner Scheppers, however. He’s also not a fan of Matt Moore pitching at Kansas City.

<blockquote>” Tampa Bay has a history of poor play in Kansas City and Moore is struggling with his command this spring. That’s a bad combination when facing a Royals team that has the third-highest walk rate in the league at 11.2 percent.” – Collette</blockquote>

RotoExperts.com – Daily Fantasy Rundown

One of the top Daily Fantasy Baseball players in the industry, Drew Dinkmeyer, shares some of his favorite picks for today’s games.

Dinkmeyer likes Brian Dozier, who I still believe to be one of the more underrated second baseman in Fantasy, as he lines up against another lefty (Kazmir).

If you’re going to spend some money on your outfielders, both Mike Trout (at Houston) and Carlos Gonzalez (vs. CHW). For value plays, he likes White Sox leadoff hitter Adam Eaton.

FanGraphs.com – Daily Fantasy Strategy for DraftStreet

Brett Talley likes using an Angels stack today against Houston, and a White Sox stack of players at Coors Field.

Hopefully, these articles help you bring back some money today!
