Just The Tip – Thanksgiving Food For Thought
DZ - Fantasy Sports Analyst: The Wagner Wire Degenerates, With a big Week 12 getting starting on Thursday afternoon, you are gonna have some early decisions to make. Can Tom Brady continue to lead the Pats to victory with even more injuries at WR? Hmmmm...can you really continue to start A.J. Green? With Romo back under center, who on Dallas' offense will come alive? Just some food for thought..... Patriots Offense Year after year, Brady's Bunch continue to put up great numbers on offense. This week may be a bit more challenging? With Edelman already injured, Monday night made things even worse. The Pats Offense took another big hit when they lost Amendola and Dobson. These injuries significantly impacted Gronk's production. He only managed 2
Just The Tip – An Extra Tip
Degenerates, Here we are, back again for another week in the NFL. Just gonna drop a little info and maybe help get your wheels turning. Mike Evans/WR/Bucs So far this year Evans hasn't produced near the numbers he did last year. However, Tampa is coming off a bye week and gets the Skins this week. Extra prep time from the bye should have allowed Evans and Winston to get on the same page. Not to mention...last year Evans took the Skins secondary "to the woodshed" going for 200+yards and 2 TDS Chris Boswell/K/Steelers I know, I know....a kicker? Look, I think Kickers should stick to soccer but they can play a pivotal role in your FF wins/loses. Maybe you have McMannus on bye this week?
Just The Tip – Moving On…
DZ: Fantasy Football Analyst - The Wagner Wire What's up Degenerates, Well we are 3 weeks into the NFL season and teams are starting to take shape. Most likely not all of your draft picks are panning out the way you had hoped! Plain and simple, it may be time to Move On....? Mike Wallace/Vikings Let's see....after a promising few years in Pittsburgh, Wallace took the cash and headed to Miami. A few years went by and they sent him packing to a polar opposite....Minnesota. His lack of production and notable attitude was overlooked by the Vikes and well.....same result. Same Mike Wallace production just in a different temperature. A WR getting #1 money being out played by many #3 WRs in all FF
JustIn Time! – Top 3 NFL Sleepers: Week 4
Justin Hawley: Fantasy Sports Analyst - The Wagner Wire Happy Thursday DFS warriors and welcome to another edition of JustInTime fantasy with yours truly! Today marks a new week in the NFL and another chance for you guys to set some lineups and make some moolah. Im gonna give you a couple sleepers that can rack you up some points and save you some salary in the process for DraftKings' contests. Tyrod Taylor $5,800 Taylor is a great bargain at QB for Week 4 against the Giants. He is averaging 23.1 FPPG this season and is always a threat with his legs as well. The Giants are giving up the most passing yards per game in the league so expect him to try
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 – 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?
Week 3 Thursday Night Preview Redskins at Giants
Chris Sweet – Senior Fantasy Analyst: The Wagner Wire Hey there Fantasy freaks, Your Sweet Fantasy is bringing you a quick look at tonight's game between the Redskins and Giants for Season Long Fantasy and DFS purposes. I'm going to start off by saying I don't love this game for DFS purposes but if you get in a contest that includes tonight's game fading the game entirely may be the best bet as the Thursday Night guys usually have high ownership and if it's a stinker of a game that will benefit you. Washington Redskins Must Plays: Jordan Reed - Tight End I don't know that there is a must start for the Redskins in tonight's game but a good option at TE in all formats
