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 5

Chris Sweet - Senior Fantasy Analyst: The Wagner Wire Week 5 is in the books so here are 70-1 things I took away from it. Ben Roethlisberger is playing like he did retire after last year. The only Steelers players you can start right now are Antonio Brown and Le'veon Bell. Joe Mixon is getting the carries now but his 2.8 ypc needs to improve if he is going to break out. The Bengals offense is starting to look better. AJ Green is the Elite WR nobody talks about. He is on pace for over 1600 yards receiving. Joe Flacco shouldn't be owned in many fantasy leagues. It's hard to trust any Ravens WR on any given week. Buck Allen is

Sweet Fantasy – Week 13 DFS Value Picks

Chris Sweet - Senior Fantasy Sports Analyst: The Wagner Wire My loyal subjects, Your King Sweet Fantasy is back to find some values in a full Week 13 slate of 15 games. Week 12 treated me well and I went a little contrarian with my cash lineup. I took Philip Rivers as my QB coming off a terrible performance the week before. Nobody wants to back a guy that just got smoked the week before but sometimes that can work to your advantage. Rivers was less than 4% owned in all of my contests even though he had one of the best match ups of the day. So don't be afraid to use a QB this week that looked bad last

Just The Tip – Who Ya Got?

DZ - Fantasy Sports Analyst: The Wagner Wire Degenerates, Week 12 in the NFL brought more injuries, lack of production, and players stepping up their game. Chris Johnson and Tony Romo may have BROKEN your DFS/FF chances last weekend, but other players like Julius Thomas, Markus Wheaton, and Antonio Gates really stepped their game up. A new week brings a new challenge. So....Who Ya Got this week? Here are 3 players I'm rolling with for sure in Week 13! Julius Thomas/TE/Jags DK-$4000/Draftpot-6.95 Is he back? Has Julius Thomas joined Stella and got his groove back? He looks like he may have after a big performance in Week 12!?!? Thomas has found the end zone in back to back weeks. Last week he posted a stat

Sweet Fantasy – Week 12 DFS Value Picks

Chris Sweet - Senior Fantasy Sports Analyst: The Wagner Wire Well Sweet Fantasy Followers,  Thanksgiving has come and gone, hopefully everyone added some winnings to their expanding waistlines this Holiday and was able to enjoy Black Friday. But this week is far from over and there are a ton of great plays out there this week with so many starting Running Backs out for the year and with the bye weeks over. The last two weeks have been very low scoring and I expect that trend to flip on it's head this week. I'm expecting some of the higher cash lines of the year so try to make the most out of every pick this week. Don't forget to enter the
