Beer Review: Sam Adams New England IPA

Sam Adams used to be my go-to beer. I knew early on that Sam Adams was a step above other mass produced beers. However as time has gone on, along with my willingness to explore new beers, my taste has expanded and evolved. Up until a few years ago I was not a fan of IPAs, I felt they were way too bitter or hoppy. Unless I was eating something, I could not even imagine finishing an Continue reading “Beer Review: Sam Adams New England IPA”

The Fig Never Sleeps…

Back in 1989, a chubby little teenager was hanging out in Caldor (might have been Bradlees, don’t hold me to it) checking out the new music and stumbled across an album from an artist named Biz Markie called “The Biz Never Sleeps”. He took a good long look, not knowing the single “Just a Friend” would become burned into his memory a short time later. He walked away thinking to himself, ‘Everyone sleeps, who the Hell is so busy that they don’t sleep’. Now, if I had a time machine, it would appear in front of that kid and I would step out and slap that kid across the face and scream, “Buy BitCoin!” before getting back into the time machine and returning to the present. This offseason has come so fast and so furious, that sleep has been a luxury. Of course the kid in the story was Continue reading “The Fig Never Sleeps…”

Week 12 Sunday/Monday Preview

Thanksgiving is behind us, as is my mystery illness which has made it pretty much impossible for me to think long enough to write the last two weeks. I have discovered that when I’m not well, I can still tweet though and I’ve connected with many of you that way. But I’m back and there is a lot of interesting value plays this week. Let’s jump in to Week 12!  Continue reading “Week 12 Sunday/Monday Preview”

Week 9 DFS Preview: Britt vs. The Metric

The article is late this week because of life, so we will skip over the terrible Thursday game that I advised skipping via Twiter yesterday. I made a few minor changes to the Metric’s prediction systems and here is what I like in Week 9 and what the system says we should use. We do not always agree and this week it highlights pretty clearly. Continue reading “Week 9 DFS Preview: Britt vs. The Metric”

Week 8 DFS Picks (Including Thursday Flyover)

Lots of interesting options this week in DFS, so let’s start by dismissing the one game, no one should touch in anyway, shape or form. Seriously, if you want to cash this week, stay out of this game altogether, there will be someone with value but I’m not liking it at all, so I’m urging folks to stay out of this game. Continue reading “Week 8 DFS Picks (Including Thursday Flyover)”

Week 7 DFS breakdown: Alert Level: Crazy Cat Lady

I seriously want to put on a housecoat, walk around with bag full of cats and just mumble incoherently. Week 7 was that bad. This entire season has been hit or miss, I did ok in a couple of lineups thanks to guys like Elliott and Ginn, but I didn’t really talk about them in the article, the guys I used from the article were overall terrible and this entire season has been like that, its been difficult to predict in the cash game, but I’m not giving up! I actually still have a chance with the Monday night game to have a profitable week, that being said, let’s cover where we got it right and where we got it wrong. Continue reading “Week 7 DFS breakdown: Alert Level: Crazy Cat Lady”

Week 7 DFS with Thursday Preview

If you read the week 6 recap, you know I was thrilled with the results. The majority (10 of 16) recommended players made value and I fully expect that trend to continue this week. But before I get into the predictions, a quick reminder about how this system works. This system is designed to identify value players in DraftKings. That means players with high point projections and low salaries. If you can find two or three solid values and then fill in the lineup with guys who are regular producers, you win in cash games. That is the whole idea, save money on certain guys that allows you to spend up in other places. So keep in mind that hitting on 10 of 16 is really really good. You wont see a lot of posts on Leveon Bell or Rob Gronkowski here because their salary will always be too high to be recommended value plays. That doesn’t mean you cant use those guys, it just means you have to pay attention to where you can save salary money first.

All that being said, here is what I see for Week 7.  Continue reading “Week 7 DFS with Thursday Preview”
