SOC | Must-Have: EPL | 12/12/17

Johann Berg Gudmundsson (DK: $8,100): It’s not an error, the Burnley winger is in another great matchup and is our Must-Have on the short EPL slate. Gudmundsson put up double-digit crosses for the first time in his last game. However, what was interesting, only three came from corners because Burnley were up a man for more than a half. The absence of Robbie Brady provides Gudmundsson an opportunity to step…

NBA | Must-Haves | 12/11/17

Terry Rozier (FDraft: $8,100 DK: $4,100 FDuel: $4,000): Our first Must-Have today has big shoes to fill replacing Kyrie Irving, who has been ruled out for the Boston Celtics. On the season, Rozier has averaged a usage rate of 18.2% and .86 Fpts/min. However, with Kyrie Irving and Marcus Morris off the court, Rozier’s usage rate increases to 23.1% and and Fpts/min increases to .96 Fpts/min. When Irving is healthy,…

NHL | Must-Haves | 12/11/17

Anders Lee (FDraft: $13,300 DK: $6,300 FD: $6,400): Lee is on the Islanders potent first line, and tonight finds himself in a plus matchup at home. For starters, Lee has tremendous home splits. He’s scored 14 points at home in 11 games this season, compared to 15 points in 18 road games. His team has similar splits, scoring 4.64 goals per game at home, which places them at the top…

SOC | Must-Haves: Interleague | 12/11/17

Luis Alberto (DK: $9,000): On a short slate, where there aren’t many stars available, you are almost forced to pick the Spanish playmaker for Lazio. For a better perspective, if you have ever played NBA, this is like rostering Russell Westbrook on a 2-3 game slate; you kind of need him to cash. Luis Alberto has been reliable all season for Lazio, setting the tone offensively for them. He’s second…

NBA | Must-Haves | 12/10/17

JJ Barea (FDraft: $10,200 DK: $5,200): Our first Must-Have is a familiar face to us as he was our Must-Have Friday night. Dennis Smith Jr. will miss this game again which makes Barea a terrific play. His usage jumps to 29% and he is averaging 1.17 Fpts/min in this situation. The Dallas Mavericks will face off against the Minnesota Timberwolves in what is a paceup game for the Mavericks, aiding…

NBA | Spotlight: Antetokounmpo, Harden, Durant | 10/23/17

The NBA season has been great to us so far at DFI, and Monday night offers us a fun slate with a star-studded main slate on PlayLine. Unfortunately, the big GPPs on PlayLine are filling more than 24 hours in advance lately, so I reached out to PlayLine to see if they’d make a new GPP for DFI users. They said yes, and you can access that by clicking here….

NFL | Spotlight: PlayLine Quarterbacks | Week 6

Last week, this spotlight article covered quarterbacks, and I think that was the most fun and the most helpful position for me to write about. It allowed me to analyze four different offenses and which players were in good spots. I also think it’s one of the most skill-based positions to predict because it’s all about yardage. Without touchdowns as a factor, you don’t get burned if the team chooses…

If you didn’t read last week’s article and don’t know what PlayLine is, open PlayLine.com now and make an account. Then click on the free contest titled 1 PM Featured Quarterbacks….
