NHL | Must-Haves | 12/16/17

Brayden Point (FDraft: $12,600 DK: $6,100 FD: $5,800): Our first Must-Have gets a very appetizing matchup tonight when the Tampa Bay Lightning travel to Colorado to take on the Avalanche. Vegas currently lists the Lightning as massive favorites, and with an over/under of 6.0 goals, we could see Tampa demolish the Avs tonight. Point is having himself a tremendous year, already registering 30 points (14G, 16A), with 71 shots in…

SOC | Must-Haves: EPL | 12/16/17

Xherdan Shaqiri (DK: $8,900): Our first Must-Have is the Swiss international, Xherdan Shaqiri. Stoke’s play has left a lot to be desired this season and they look to turn things around when they play West Ham. West Ham has failed to perform on the road, evident by their three straight road losses. Stoke are coming off of two straight road losses and their last victory coming at home against Swansea….

NBA | Must-Haves | 12/15/17

Lou Williams (FDraft: $13,800 DK: $7,600): It’s no secret that the Clippers have been hit with the injury bug this season. With Austin Rivers going down last game with a concussion, even more opportunity has opened up for Lou Williams. When we adjust for the available Clippers tonight, Lou Williams has a team high 37.4% usage rate and 1.35 FPTs/min. This is an increase in usage of 7.9% and in…

NHL | Must-Haves | 12/15/17

Tyler Seguin (FDraft: $15,900 DK: $7,800 FDuel: $7,900): Seguin is going to cost you, and should have decent ownership, but this matchup is a great one. His skillset is undeniably there, and on this short slate we recognize that overthinking this one would likely be a mistake. The Devils have allowed the 4th-most shots per game in the NHL, which matches up excellently with Seguin’s strengths – consistently one of…

SOC | Must-Have: Interleague | 12/15/17

Thomas Lemar (DK: $8,900): Our Must-Have for the three-match Interleague slate is Thomas Lemar, the promising French midfielder for AS Monaco. Monaco faces off against Saint-Etienne in a lopsided match when looking at the league table. Saint-Etienne are 15 points behind Monaco, sitting in 15th place, while the French giants are 3rd in Ligue 1. Saint-Etienne are expected to be heavily depleted with three players missing the match due to…

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….
