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 – Playoffs?

Chris Sweet - Senior Fantasy Analyst: The Wagner Wire If the regular season is a marathon then the Fantasy Playoffs are a street fight where anything and everything is allowed. You've worked hard all season to assemble a team worthy of taking home Fantasy Gold. This is a guide to what to do and not do in the Fantasy Playoffs. Dance with who brought you If you've played fantasy football for even a few years then you know that match-ups play a big part in deciding whether your players come up big or fall short.

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 from Week 2

Chris Sweet - Senior Fantasy Analyst: The Wagner Wire It's that time for 69 again. 69 things, thoughts, musings, and anecdotes from Week 2. In honor of this column, Congrats to Gronk on career TD Number 69! Tom Brady against the Saints defense is unfair, especially to owners playing against him last week. Brandin Cooks is gonna explode one week soon but you have to start him every week and take the bad with the good. The Saints offense hasn't had that great week yet. They will probably have to wait at least one more week. Carolina's D is strong. Matt Ryan and the Falcons offense looks as good as last year. Devonta Freeman is gonna have a lot of big

Sweet Fantasy – 69 Things: Week 1

Chris Sweet - Senior Fantasy Analyst: The Wagner Wire Your Sweet Fantasy is back and I'm bringing you 69 thoughts, facts, and musings from a mostly ugly Week 1 of fantasy football. Alex Smith has a large chip on his shoulder. Kareem Hunt is going to be a problem for opposing fantasy owners. Travis Kelce is not Gronk...he's better than him. Tom Brady will be just fine. I want to own Brandin Cooks this week in New Orleans. Chris Hogan is not a suitable replacement for Julian Edelman. The Top 5 Fantasy QBs in Week 1 were Alex Smith, Sam Bradford, Matthew Stafford, Trevor Siemian, and Derek Carr. At least 3 of them won't have a better week all year. Minnesota's

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.
