Daily Fantasy Sports: Week 13 Lineup Review

Week 13 provided a lot more entertainment from a fantasy sports perspective than in quite a few weeks. In my season long league, I was trying to backdoor into the final playoff spot, to no avail. And in DFS, I tiptoed around spectacular plays on different lineups, but couldn’t create the right combination of players to have a great lineup. Here’s a breakdown of all my lineups from week 13.

Daily Fantasy Sports: Week 10 Lineup Review

In the words of Troy Aikman, “I dwell on the past.”

Week ten continued to be kind to me in daily fantasy sports, as I had another very good week. The commercial that the first quote was playing right as I started typing this, which I thought was fitting since I’m typing about very, very recent history.  A few things that have helped me enjoy this endeavor is the fact that I’ve stayed disciplined with my bankroll, I’ve developed a decent strategy to construct my lineup, and I’ve made some money. (It’s okay, you can mutter the slurs about my egotistical lines now, as I’ve already done so myself!) What can I say; I have to do something that keeps my mind preoccupied from the Black Friday gloom that’s about come. Enough of me babbling, here’s my best lineup from week 10:

Daily Fantasy Sports can, and will, change a man. Trust me, as I’m finding this out from experience. At least for a fantasy sports perspective. As I notice myself spending more and more time focusing on my weekly lineups, which for me is on Fanduel, I’ve come to realize the advantages of trusting my gut as well as doing a little bit of research on matchups. Because of those two things, I’ve done really well this season for DFS leagues, especially given the limited bankroll that I’ve given myself. Sometimes you have to ball on a budget.

Shiva Season: Week 3 Must Have Stars and Diamond Players

Different variations of the old adage “You don’t know what you have until it’s gone,” kept popping into my head this week. With all the dumbassery (props to the Lex and Terry show for that word) that has come out not just this week, but all season about football players at both the college (Jameis Winston) and pro level (Ray Rice, Ray McDonald, Adrian Peterson), it just seemed like a fitting phrase. Not to mention the injuries that piled up in week 2 for many teams.

I make no bones about the fact that football season is my favorite time of year. It gives a special sense of optimism that ultimately turns into despair that only the truest of Browns fans can endure yet enjoy. It also brings about a lot of enthusiastic fantasy players creating the ultimate team. For many, it’s not just football season. No sir, this is Shiva Season. (Thank you FX for creating The League!)

One Season In Cleveland: If I Was In Charge

Cleveland stadium

Anyone who follows sports knows that there has been a huge whirlwind swirling over Lake Erie and the Cleveland Browns organization. From the outside looking in, owner Jimmy Haslem seems to have proven his ineptitude to run an NFL organization (I’m not going to speculate how inept his other business may or may not be run, but there is that question in my head). Since it seems that any Joe Schmoe halfwit fool can run the organization, I figured why not write about what I would do hypothetically if I was in charge of my beloved Browns. Continue reading
