David Zidek – Fantasy Sports Analyst: The Wagner Wire
How did your DFS weekend treat you? Mine was wonderful, $10,000 worth of wonderful. Follow me on Twitter @TheWagnerWire! I don’t like Twitter, so I have Wagner act as my assistant. I’ve been carrying him since Pop Warner Football and damn near have scoliosis. Ask him how he did in our season-long fantasy football league this week. Yeah – I beat him to advance to the championship. Haha! This weekend was extraordinary! I won roughly $10,200! My nut came on a 3rd place finish from (1) $9 card, with 41,500 other degenerates fighting for the same cash.
The build up for MNF was exciting and stressful. I was within a few points of winning 1st place (20 Gs)…..while also within a few points of plummeting, and finishing with only a $4,000 score. I actually felt like I was in the damn DK commercial, where the guy is clearly ready to scream! My winning line up included 2 of the 3 players I suggested to all of you Degenerates use. I also had to roll with Cam at QB. This was a “lock” since he was going against that busch league defense of the Giants. FYI…Jordan Reed is almost the equivalent of a #1 WR on most teams, so quit sleeping on him! To cap it off, I had the league’s best WR, Antonio Brown. Broncos D….please! AB is now endorsing 84-ply toilet paper because all he does is SH!T on opposing DBs. This is how I separated myself from the herd…
Cam Newton – 48.60 Pts/ 8.6% Owned
You heard Wagner mention Cam as the lock on his Wednesday show and he reiterated Sunday morning. Wagner even mentioned that he’d get 100 yards rushing and throw for 5 TDs. It came to fruition. Giants are the worst pass defense in the NFL, allowing 309 yards/game. No-brainer here! Cam finished with 340 yds passing, 100 yds rushing, and threw 5 touchdowns.
Antonio Brown 49.90 Pts/ 6.7% Owned
Come on! 6% owned!? What is wrong with everyone? We know I rock the Steel City Stack, but AB is the best wide receiver in the NFL. Debate me on this, please! AB torched the best defense in the NFL for 16 receptions, 189 yards receiving, and 2 touchdowns. Umm, yeah!
Jordan Reed – 27.40 Pts/ 10% Owned
Reed is big, fast, tough to tackle, and not only has emerged as one of the best targets in the NFL, but he is becoming Capt. Kirk’s primary option. Look for Reed to continue to be a dominant force and cheaper option than Gronk. Reed finished with 7 receptions for 84 yards, and 2 touchdowns.
