Week 13: NFL 64

NFL64

As we look into the week 13 of the NFL season I’m looking for some consistency. Not from a team or player, but from the league and it’s officials. While the NFL league administration gets a little too much flack for player behaviour, especially for players offending for the first time, because that is a relatively unpredictable, (Anyone who screws up a second time there is no excuse for and the NFL should be dealing with that with a far speedier process. See Aldon Smith.) the idea referees behaviour can’t be better controlled is ridiculous. Continue reading

NFL Summation: Week 12

Summationweek12It is long overdue for the NFL to make officials full time employees. I realize they at most work 24 games a year, but how is this not as great an integrity issue as potentially deflated footballs? Would it be crazy for me to suggest that because the Broncos went for the field goal instead of the TD and cut the lead to 4 when the spread was 3, that any official who may have bet the Bronco’s plus 3 had a vested interest in seeing the Bronco’s score again? Continue reading

NFL 64: Week 12

NFL64

Week 12 is here and Thanksgiving week is always weird week. Teams will start actually clinching playoff spots soon, both in the real NFL and in your fantasy leagues! The best game of the weekend will probably be the Seahawks hosting the Steelers. Neither team is great, but I think both are very good and are very evenly matched. Continue reading

NFL: 64 Week 11

NFL64

We’ve spent a lot of time on the playoffs this week and we will continue to because that’s why they play the game. Lots of fun games to watch this weekend with an eye on the post season. Can the Vikings take control of the NFC North hosting the Packers? Can the Falcons rebound off their bye week against an Andrew Luck-less Colts? Have the last couple of weeks of the Chiefs been legit? Continue reading

NFL:64 Week 10

NFL64132 regular season NFL games in the books, 125 left to go. It official we passed the halfway point. I hope your favorite team is still in the playoff hunt, if not, I hope your fantasy team is still relevant. If that’s not the case either, adopt a team! I recommend adopting a team from the other conference. If you are a Ravens fan for instance and they have been super unlucky and would have to have a series of miracles occur for them to sneak into the playoffs, adopt an NFC team. Maybe the Rams and the best rookie running back in the long time, Todd Gurley. Continue reading

NFL Summation: Week 9

Summationweek9In week with 6 teams on the bye it felt like the league started to take a more definitive shape. Like when Jello first starts to solidify in your favorite mold. (If you don’t have a favorite Jello mold you are a savage.) It wasn’t pretty and I’m not sure that some of the teams wins mean much more than the fact that they won and that gives them a big advantage in gaining a playoff spot, or in playoff seeding. Continue reading

NFL:64 Week 9

NFL64I talked a little on Tuesday about how top heavy the league has become. I only think there are 13 teams that are legitimately playoff caliber teams right now. That’s insane. Conversely the very bottom is filled with dumpster fire after dumpster fire. San Fran, Detroit, Tennessee, are all pretty much laughing stocks right now. Cleveland, Houston, San Diego and Baltimore are just bad football teams for various reasons. Chicago and Dallas are sort of in a twilight zone of mediocrity. Tampa, Indy, Washington, Philly, KC and Jacksonville I think should all be better and just have underperformed. Buffalo, Miami, New Orleans and the Giants are teams that have shown a tendency to just sort of fall down, and not lightly when these teams have fallen down, they have fallen down hard. Just ask My Friend Craig. Continue reading

DraftKings Week 8 Review

For the first time this year I failed to land in the money in back to back weeks on DraftKings. That’s not great, but it was likely to happen eventually. It was what I’m going to call a very top heavy week at DraftKings, meaning that the top scorers scored an ass load of points and then there were a bunch of guys who had ok weeks. So let’s review my top/bottom 3s and my teams! Continue reading

Week 8 DraftKings Preview

We continue the search for opportunity and value on DraftKings. As I continue to try and find ways to judge that value I’ve started to think of ways to evaluate ownership %, cost, and points scored. We won’t see the results of those ideas this week, as I’m still in the alpha phase of development, but hopefully soon I can start showing some of the results. Continue reading
