Daily Fantasy Football – Keep it Simple

In putting together a roster for FanDuel today one thing to keep in mind is to keep it simple. Sticking with teams that are one dimensional, or have limited options at a given position, is a fine way to do this. Oddly enough this week that might indicate a tight end to...

Daily Fantasy Football – Rebound Players

Among the strategies for picking a weekly fantasy football lineup is to look for players who you know are certain to be more productive over the course of a season than they’ve been in their recent games. Admittedly, such an approach involves as much art as it does science but...

Daily Fantasy Baseball – Cleveland Battery

P Danny Salazar of the Indians ($6,100 in salary for daily fantasy baseball at FanDuel tonight) strikes out batters at a rate of over 10 per 9 innings pitched, and he only walks 2.70 per 9 IP. The problem is he averages about 5 innings per start. That might still...

Thanks, Roy—But The Games Go On

I mentioned yesterday that it might be Halladay’s last as a Phillies starter. Had I only known it would also be the shortest of his career. One has to salute Roy Halladay for working as hard as he does and attempting to come back from shoulder surgery so soon. It...
