Just The Tip – NFL Top Running Backs For DFS: DraftKings

Degenerates, Week 17 is here! As the regular season comes to a end, your DFS roster may face some challenges. Some teams will play "back ups" this week as an audition for next year. You may also see teams with nothing to play for, to be reluctant to risk further injury to their starters. There are still teams fighting for playoff spots and seeding position. Let's take a look at the RB position and analyze which players you need in your DFS lineup. DeAngelo Williams/DK $7100 Williams has been a huge suprise for the Steelers this season. The Steeler workhorse has racked up at least 110 total yards 7 times this season while only starting 8 games. This week Pittsburgh is visiting Cleveland. The

Just The Tip – $ Holiday Cash $

David Zidek - Fantasy Sports Analyst: The Wagner Wire Degenerates, Week 15 was awesome! Cam's huge day, Antonio Brown's dismantling of the Bronco's stingy D, and some WWF action on the football field. With Week 16 starting on Christmas Eve, is your DFS lineup ready to make some holiday CASH? I had a MONSTER week 15! Let's look at some players that could help you get back some cash from your holiday spending. Denard Robinson - $5400 DK/$5,200 FantasyHub Last week, Robinson played on every offensive snap. He didn't have a huge day, but he did put up over 15 points. With Yeldon still sporting a knee brace, it looks like Robinson will be the workhorse again. This week the Jags get the Saints, who

Just The Tip – Budgeting your roster

DZ - Fantasy Sports Analyst: The Wagner Wire Degenerates, Wow! Week 13 had some players rack up big time points. Mariota, Bortles, Antonio Brown, and Buck Allen were a few guys that brought their A-game last week. Let's take a look at a few players that could have thier game on the rise this week, bringing great value and impact to your DFS lineup. Darren Sproles/RB/Eagles DK-3500/FantasyHub-3300  Sproles is coming off of a very productive game where he totaled 100 scrimmage yards and a Punt Return for a TD. With DeMarco Murray rumored to be in Coach Kelly's doghouse and Matthews battling injuries, Sproles should continue to lead the Eagles in touches. Philly gets the Bills this week who are giving up the 9th most

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

Just The Tip – Just Relax!

DZ - Fantasy Analyst: The Wagner Wire Degenerates, Quite the weekend in the NFL. Big Ben, Luck, Bridgewater, and plenty more were injured this weekend. Is your FF team and personal pride on the verge of going down the toilet? Just relax....JUST THE TIP has got some info to help your struggles. Landry Jones/QB/Steelers With a few QBs on the injury report, Landry, can be a solid fill in. He is facing a struggling Browns team that has been piecing together their secondary lately. Joe Haden has missed a lot of time this season with injuries and a concussion. Even if he is able to play this week he will surely be rusty. Pair that with the Steelers playing at home, Landry getting some

Just The Tip – Playoff Push

DZ - Fantasy Analyst: The Wagner Wire Degenerates, With every win and loss becoming more crucial, you need make each week and each roster move count! Now is not the time to hesitate and second guess yourself. At this juncture of the season you know what moves you need to make. You just need to get to the playoffs! Yes Jim Mora...Playoffs!   Robert Woods/WR/Bills Woods doesn't have the best QB situation. However, he has been vaulted into the #1 WR spot. Percy Harvin has battled injuries his entire career and is now contemplating retirement. Sammy Watkins....he just can't stay healthy. The Bills are on bye this week so try to pick him up as a FA. He should continue to lead the team in

Just The Tip – Roster Improvement

    Degenerates, As always, another big week is on the horizon. Decisions need to be made regarding your lineups and it may be time to shake things up. Take a look at these guys and look to improve your roster.   Josh McCown/QB/Browns While he isn't killing it so to speak, he has been consistent. McCown has scored over 20 points 3 weeks in a row now. The Browns haven't been bashful about letting him throw it either. He has a tough match up this week with Denver in town but he is worthy of a roster spot. Oh yeah, he still gets to play the Steelers secondary twice!   Willie Snead/WR/Saints Snead has made himself at least the #2 option in the passing game. He is seeing

Just The Tip – Got The Injury Bug?

    DZ - Fantasy Sports Analyst: The Wagner Wire My fellow DFS Degenerates - Ouch, DAGGER, and WTF?! If you said any of those things after week 2, chances are that you lost a significant player to injury. Take a look at these players as a solid replacement to fill your void Dion Lewis-RB/Patriots Even with Blount returning from suspension, that couldn't slow down Lewis' FF production. Whether it's rushing or receiving Lewis has been getting his touches. He totaled 100+ yards including 6 receptions in week 2. Look for him to be the lead running at least for a few more weeks. Not to mention....he is playing against the Jags this week.   Travis Benjamin-WR/Browns Here is a cheaper version of Mike Wallace. Maybe more productive too?

Just The Tip – Who’s On The Rise?

Dave Zidek - Fantasy Sports Analyst: The Wagner Wire   Degenerates, Wow - what a start to the season! Week 1 handed out a handful on injuries, next man up?!?! With injuries happening all the time, a teams focal point (s) can and will change. These players could see  a large increase in action....meaning more FF points for your team. Jason Witten - Cowboys With Dez Bryant being sidelined for over a month with a foot injury look for Romo to turn to his Mr Reliable. Witten had the week 1 game winning TD. He should continue so see a increase in targets on the short and intermediate routes to keep the chains moving.   Larry Fitzgerald -Cardinals  While Fitz  isn't the beast he was a few years

Just The Tip – Buyer Beware

Author: DZ   Degenerates, Everyone knows the big names, popular players, and usual big point producers. As players change teams, injuries mount, and draft picks show promise, your fantasy forcast can change too! Here we have a few players that typically you may not consider a "risky " pick but should come with a Caution label this season. So....Buyer Beware!   Cam Newton - QB/Panthers   Typically a above average fantasy QB, Newton may have a tough year. With below average depth at WR and losing his #1 WR, where will Newton turn? Benjamin, Newton's #1 target is out for the season. He has veterans like Ginn and Cotchery but nobody that can match Benjamin ' s production. Carolina did draft Funchess but he doesnt have the speed
