About Frank Dyevoich

I'm a New York/New Jersey attorney with a strong passion for the NFL and fantasy football. I am a die hard New York Giants fan first and foremost and an aspiring fantasy football analyst. I specialize in re-draft PPR, but will happily answer best ball, dynasty and keeper questions if you tweet me. I hope to attack fantasy football analysis from unique angles and bring to light aspects of the game that not many people realize impacts fantasy football. I also stay up to the minute with news that breaks across the NFL and can share insight on the hottest legal issues.

Week 17 Start Em’ Sit Em’

Frank Dyevoich | December 29th, 2018

Most fantasy football championships were won in Week 16 so Congratulations to those of you who have brought home that coveted title in 2018! For those of you still competing in Week 17, you are doing it wrong. Week 17 is usually just as unpredictable as the pre-season because many teams have locked up their playoff position and have nothing to play for which results in many teams resting their starters. This messes up the entire fantasy arena because the superstars who carried you all the way through the playoffs are not going to play and you are left searching the waiver wire for backup players that are going to see a ton of volume. Further, some teams that are out of playoff contention also choose to rest their superstars because they do not want them to suffer a serious injury that may threaten their availability in 2019 in a completely meaningless game. Therefore, first and foremost, stop playing your championships in Week 17. For those of you still with a title on the line, the following start/sit recommendations are based on this week’s matchups and whether or not teams have anything to play for in Week 17.

Week 16 Start Em’ Sit Em’

Frank Dyevoich | December 23rd, 2018

It is here! It is finally here! We have scratched and clawed our way through 15 grueling weeks for a chance to contend for the title and the championship is upon us. Week 15 was brutal to fantasy owners so here is to hoping that Week 16 can go a little more according to plan. I will not recommend any long shots or dart throws in this week’s Start Em’ Sit Em’ because we can’t afford to be wrong. No more hunches. No more speculations. The only thing that matters is who is going to score the most points this week. So let’s get to it. I recommend that you start and sit the following players if you want the best chance at taking down the title!

Week 16 Waiver Wire Adds

Frank Dyevoich | December 18th, 2018

It seems like just yesterday that we were mock drafting three to five times a day leading up to the most glorious day of the year, fantasy football draft day, and now we are preparing for the final matchup to determine the champion. Oh, how time flies when you are having fun!

Week 15 Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em

Frank Dyevoich | December 16th, 2018

Congratulations if you have made it to your semi-finals and are still fighting for that coveted fantasy football championship. There is only one more week before our championship rounds, unless you play in Week 17, so now is the time to focus even harder and analyze our lineup options with a fine-toothed comb because one wrong move and it spell disaster for everything that we have worked so hard to accomplish this year. The most important rule is not to get cute with your lineups. Last week, Joe Mixon had a tough matchup and Sony Michel had a delicious one, but if you started Michel over Mixon you fell flat. Mixon is a stud and you start your studs. The following start and sit recommendations are based on this week’s matchups.

Week 15 Waiver Wire Adds

Frank Dyevoich | December 11th, 2018

Congratulations if you have made it this far! Many fantasy owners out there have just suffered heartbreaking defeats, so take a minute to enjoy this moment because you have earned it!…. OK, now stop celebrating because that extremely important victory we just pulled out means nothing. It is time to fall back, sharpen our weapons, and add new weapons that will aid us in our victory because if we lose, we die.

Week 14 Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em

Frank Dyevoich | December 8th, 2018

Ladies and gentlemen, this is it. Week 14, the fantasy football playoffs. Congratulations to those of us who have reached our first goal. Now we must re-dedicate ourselves and re-focus all of our energy onto the next three weeks. It is win or go home, and I don’t know about you, but I want to win. There is one very important rule when preparing for an epic playoff run: don’t get cute. Julio Jones only had three fantasy points last week, but this week’s matchup vs the Packers should be a shootout between two bad defenses. Start Julio Jones. And don’t get thrown by a matchup and start a much less talented player in a good matchup over an elite player with a bad one. Matchups are a factor, but not the only factor.
