I love Thursday nights! Have I mentioned how much I love Thursday night games? The early start, setting your season long lineup early, having to make a call on a questionable guy scheduled to play on a Monday and your back up plays Thursday so you HAVE to make a call? Thursday nights rock! Yeah, even I can’t buy that line, I still hate Thursday night, except this week! This week there are plays to be made, so let’s dive in.

The guys are back to tackle Week 3 DFS Football, drink a new beer, and discuss mascot fashion. This week, a web site malfunction slowed down Britt and Craig’s analysis, so the guys are Continue reading “Week 3 DFS: You Are Not Prepared!”
Once again…. I hate the Thursday game! This game is a great example as to why: two offenses that sruggled to get anything done in week 1, both on a shortened week, both with major question marks n multiple positions. So let’s dive in! Continue reading “Week 2 Thursday DFS Preview”
So the major sites have restrictions on sharing lineups, so I cannot post my lineups before they go live, but once lineups lock at the start of the 1 PM games. I’m free to discuss what I did. Now the first question should be, “Why should I care about your lineups once they’ve locked? I can’t use them.” and its a fair one. The answer though is very straight forward, if my picks are all terrible, why would you listen to our podcast? By sharing my lineups on Sunday after you cannot use them and before games go final, you can decide for yourself. Continue reading “Fignuts Week 1 DFS lineups”
Let me start by saying, I prefer to avoid using players on Thursdays nights as a general rule. The shorter time to practice, the shorter physical recovery time (particularly as the season goes on), and the rush on coaches to game plan all factor in to less consistent performance and harder predictions when it comes to DFS. That being said, I did promise to post my thoughts on Thursday night games each week, and its time to discuss week 1. Continue reading “Week 1 DFS Thursday: Britt Hates Thursday Games”
When Craig and I hatched this podcast, we envisioned a hobby that we would do in our spare time. Record weekly, do the occasional written piece on the site, and share some of the knowledge we’ve accumulated over 50 years of combined Fantasy Football play. It would be fun! And it is, but then…. the preseason arrived. Continue reading “Preseason Week 3: It Just Gets Weirder”
No Manifesto! Just 5 tips to make your draft a success.
Do you know how many “Draft Day Manifesto” articles I’ve read this week? Every site, every prognosticator, every writer has one of these. Manifesto is such a serious word though, when someone suggests they have a ‘manifesto’, people like Karl Marx had a manifesto, people who hold rallies in college quadrangles have manifestos; fantasy football players should not have manifestos. A fantasy football player needing a manifesto to do well in their draft is about as much of an overstatement as an airline pilot needing a manifesto in order to fly a plane.
