Wagner Wisdom: Top DFS Performers – NFL Playoffs (Wild Card)

Adam Wagner - Fantasy Sports Analyst: The Wagner Wire   The NFL Playoffs are upon us. Congratulations to those of you whose teams were fortunate to achieve a post-season reservation and my condolences to those of you with teams that weren't as fortunate. Regardless, we all have daily fantasy sports to compete in. The slate of games has reduced, making your decision of who to roster more critical. With the exception of Pittsburg, the defenses that these players will encounter are legitimately tough. The Steelers can still get after the quarterback, although they allow 271 yards/game through the air. With Andy Dalton's status uncertain, the Steelers might be able to sustain and repel an otherwise dangerous Bengals' offense. That being said, should you

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

Sweet Fantasy – Week 7 DFS Value Picks

Chris Sweet: Senior Fantasy Analyst – The Wagner Wire Wagner Wire Nation it's time again for your Sweet Fantasy to hit you off with some value. We are settling in to the NFL season now and trends are developing. Everyone should have a better idea of what each team is going to give you from week to week and that makes it harder to find bargains that will produce. We've seen significant bumps in guys that this column has touted in the early weeks. Some of the options I listed this week are strictly gpp plays like all 3 QBs but some are almost better as cash games like a few of the RBs. Quarterbacks Landry Jones $5,100 DK/$10,500 FDraft/$6,000 FD Assuming Big Ben can't

Ravens at Steelers: NFL Thursday Night Football Special

  Chris Sweet: Senior Fantasy Sports Analyst - The Wagner Wire   Good Morning my fellow Fantasy Football freaks. Just like that Week 4 is here with a tilt between two teams that have no love lost for each other. The Steelers losing Ben Roethlisberger for a month or more hurts the fantasy value of this contest a bit but we're still going to try and find some value in here for everybody in their season long and daily leagues. Now I mentioned last week that if you are playing a Thursday contest on DraftKings the guys from this game will be heavily owned generally so a lot of time you will find value in fading this game completely. For you season long players

Just The Tip – After Hours

Author: DZ   Fellow FF Degenerates, As you dive into each draft this year you will need to add depth to your roster. You will be able to find some fire power from these guys with your late round/after hours picks.l These after hour picks are where fantasy football championships are won. Keeping that in mind, let me give you just the tip that will win your FF championship.     Markus Wheaton - WR/Steelers Wheaton is on one of the most explosive offenses in the league. While Antonio Brown, Bell, and Bryant are the big production guys for the Steelers, Wheaton is no slouch. Big Ben has been targeting Wheaton this preseason including a TD in game 2. With the big 3 drawing so much attention,

Just The Tip – Climbing The Charts?

Author: David Zidek - TWW   Fellow FF degenerates, It's that time of year again! As your draft dates are closing in, here is some food for thought on some players you should take a good look at.   TE - Martellus Bennett With Brandon Marshall relocating to NY and #1 pick, Kevin White sidelined indefinitely, who will reap the rewards? Bennett! Jay Cutler will likely look the way of the big TE, along with Matt Forte, especially in the first half of the season. RB - Ameer Abdullah The Nebraska RB has shown some early explosion and looks to push the depth chart for plenty of early playing time. With Calvin Johnson drawing tons of attention on deep and clearing routes, look for Abdullah to hit the
