NBA | Must-Haves | 11/20/17

Kyle Anderson (FDraft: $8,600 DK: $4,500 FDuel: $5,200): Our first Must-Have today is the versatile Kyle Anderson who finds himself in a terrific matchup against the Atlanta Hawks. With Kawhi Leonard on the shelf, Anderson has stepped up in a huge way, averaging just over 27 minutes per game. Anderson is Mr. Do-It-All for the Spurs, averaging 8.3 PPG, 6.3 RPG and 2.3 APG while averaging a block and steal…

NHL | Must-Have | 11/20/17

William Nylander (FDraft: $12,800 DK: $6,200 FD: $5,800): He battled an illness, and struggled without Auston Matthews, but tonight with both of those factors behind him, Nylander is in a spot to explode. His Maple Leafs play host to the Arizona Coyotes in a game with a six goal over/under tonight. The Coyotes are among the worst in the NHL in defending right wingers. Worth noting specifically, is the assist…

NHL | Must-Haves | 11/18/17

Vladislav Namestnikov (FDraft: $11,900 DK: $5,900 FD: $6,600): Playing alongside Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov has worked wonders for Namestnikov this year. He comes into this game with 20 points (9G, 11A) with 50 shots on net in 19 games. The Lightning have an appetizing home matchup tonight when the New York Islanders come to Tampa Bay. Vegas currently lists the Lightning as big favorites, and with an over/under set…

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….
