Why You Should Ditch Average Fantasy Apps for ThriveFantasy

By: Braeden Long Draft Kings and FanDuel have an implemented plan that draws the average player to play in DFS games with high hopes of getting rich.  Sure, it’s more fun to watch sports when there’s money on the line, but how confident are you picking a perfect lineup to get dough? ThriveFantasy, unlike Draft Kings and FanDuel, is the perfect platform for the everyday fantasy player to place daily wagers confidently.  Thrive doesn’t have nearly as many users as their competitors as of yet, so it’s much easier to win money.  Don’t let fantasy platforms hook you in to enter massive contests with small bets ending in the rich getting richer.  The DFS industry is projected to be a multibillion-dollar

Sweet Fantasy – 69 Things from Week 12

Chris Sweet - Senior Fantasy Analyst: The Wagner Wire I hope everyone had a great Holiday Weekend full of food, football, and family. It is now one of the most important weeks of the Fantasy Football Season. Week 13 is the last week of the regular season in many leagues so those Byes and last playoffs spots are on the line. Without further ado here are 69 things I took away from Week 12.   The Dallas Cowboys and any Fantasy owners of theirs sure miss Ezekiel Elliott. The offense is just completely out of synch. Rod Smith is an interesting guy to pick up for the playoffs with Alfred Morris struggling and Darren McFadden retiring after being waived. In a season

Sweet Fantasy – 69 Things I’m Thankful For

Chris Sweet - Senior Fantasy Analyst: The Wagner Wire Thanksgiving Week is upon us so I'm switching it up a little this week. It's the time of year that we say what we are thankful for. So here are a Holiday 69 of things I'm thankful for. I'm thankful that DeAndre Hopkins is QB proof again. I'm thankful for DFS Thanksgiving slates. Because what goes better with a day full of family and eating than having some money on the line? I'm thankful for Mashed Potatoes and Gravy. I'm thankful that the Pittsburgh Steelers are giving Le'veon Bell all the carries he can handle. I'm thankful that the Chiefs are still the Chiefs I'm used to. I'm thankful that the Bills

Sweet Fantasy – 69 Things from Week 10

Chris Sweet - Senior Fantasy Analyst: The Wagner Wire The homestretch is upon us. 3 weeks for the rest of your life. Well, the rest of your fantasy season at least. You need this 69 right now, more than ever. 69 things I took away from Week 10. Tyron Smith was the Cowboys MVP, not Ezekiel Elliott. Those expecting automatic RB1 numbers from Alfred Morris will have to wait a few weeks. The Eagles come off their bye for a big-time Sunday Night Football Game at Dallas. Alshon Jeffery has 19 targets and 3 TDs in his last 2 games. Jay Ajayi could have a big game against the Cowboys Defense. Sterling Shepard is averaging over 100 yards and 11 targets

Sweet Fantasy – 69 Things from Week 9

Chris Sweet - Senior Fantasy Analyst: The Wagner Wire It's time to get down once again. The fantasy performances were a little uneven in Week 9. We are down to the home stretch in most leagues with only 4 weeks left to make the playoffs. Here are 69 things I took away from Week 9. Holy smokes, Carson Wentz is gonna win a lot of people Fantasy Titles. Jay Ajayi looked impressive on only 9 carries. Alshon Jeffery is emerging a little. Even so, this was only Jeffery's second game with more than 4 receptions. The Cowboys have quite the young Quarterback as well in Dak Prescott. He is a true Fantasy Stud. Terrance Williams caught all 9 of his targets

Sweet Fantasy – 69 Things from Week 6

Chris Sweet - Senior Fantasy Analyst: The Wagner Wire Week 6 is in the books and here's what I learned. 69 times. The Steelers are going to get every ounce of production that they can from Le'veon Bell this year. I do not believe he will be a Steeler next year. Antonio Brown is the best WR I’ve seen since Jerry Rice. Only Amari Cooper has been a bigger bust than Martavis Bryant at the WR position. The Browns still don’t have a QB. Copy and pasted every year since 1999. Joe Flacco is tough to watch. It’s really hard to put any Ravens in your lineup right now besides their Defense. Andy Dalton is available in some leagues and should

Home Road Splits and Primetime Games

Tyler Moore - Fantasy Sports Writer: The Wagner Wire   Quarterbacks and their home road splits; Plus, how they play in crucial games. Many people question if home road splits are an actual viable stat to keep in mind for fantasy football. These are professional quarterbacks we are talking about after all. Those people I would like you to meet Mr. Big Ben Roethlisberger (maybe you have heard of him?), who is the poster boy for this stat. Since 2014 Big Ben has averaged 30.1 points per game at home compared to just 17.12 points on the road. If put those numbers at a season long pace Ben at home would have 482 points, but on the road, he would have 274 points.

The Impact of Strength of Schedule For Fantasy Football – The Difference Between DFS and Season Long

Tyler Moore - Fantasy Sports Contributor: The Wagner Wire     Fantasy Impact: Strength of Schedule   How much should you consider strength of schedule when you are drafting players for your fantasy team? If you look back just to last year the Atlanta Falcons were tied for having the hardest strength of schedule, but that didn’t stop anybody from drafting Julio Jones or Devonta Freeman. Julio Jones was actually one of the best foundations fantasy football teams could have last year. Julio came in at a staggering 20.1 percent of teams that made it all the way to their championship weekend. Pro Football Focus has the New York Giants as the top secondary for the 2017 season, but Dez Bryant, who faces the Giants
