It was a year of high hopes for America’s Team in the Dallas Cowboys after dealing with mediocre seasons and early playoff exits for the past five years. With a weak schedule to start the season, Dallas rocketed out to a 3-0 start but quickly began to fall back to earth as the team would finish 8-8 on the year and second in the NFC East. There isn’t a better record to describe this team than .500 as the offense was potent at times in 2019 but they lacked consistency both on offense and defense causing them to crumble against better opponents.

As the end of the regular season approaches, analysts and fans alike are brainstorming all the different ways that their teams could somehow capitalize on their 1% chance at the playoffs. But to take your mind off of that for a moment, let’s look back at the rookie performers who dazzled in week 15 of the NFL season. This week was offensively heavy as several running backs are looking to make their mark as the season comes to a close. However, a few household defensive names continue to impress. Let us proceed now into these rankings starting, as always, with a couple of honorable mentions.
Hopefully, everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving and found out Monday night that they made the playoffs. If you did be thankful for it and if you didn’t, it’s never too early to start preparing for next year, especially in dynasty leagues. With three weeks to go (unless you play in week 17 for some weird reason), every decision on who the start and who to sit is even more critical. To kick off the start of the fantasy playoffs we have a matchup between the Cowboys and Bears. Not only is this game critical to fantasy owners but to both franchises as they fight for the playoffs.
A lot has changed since the last time the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants faced off. That was the first game of the season for both teams and Eli Manning was the starting quarterback for the Giants. Daniel Jones is now the starting quarterback. The Cowboys beat the Giants in that game and then went on to win two more games before dropping three in a row. They then beat the Philadelphia Eagles and now sit at 4-3 at the top of their division in the NFC East. Here are my best players in this divisional matchup. Continue reading →
In this week’s edition of our rookie rankings, we have more new faces who have quickly risen to the top of the leaderboard after exceptional performances last weekend, including one rookie who made history. We also have a couple of names missing including Marquise Brown, who just missed the cut, and Kyler Murray, who had a rough week three performance including being sacked eight times. Who broke out in week three, and who slipped down the rankings this week? Some of the names just might surprise you, so let us begin, as always, with a couple of honorable mentions.
Before we talk about who to buy and who to sell in week three, we should highlight a few awesome performances. If you missed last week’s article, then check that out before scrolling here, as many of the players are still available (though not in the under 50% owned threshold), see Demarcus Robinson.
One of my favorite activities to take part in at bars, other than drinking, of course, is playing darts. Throwing darts takes precision aim, but if you hit the bullseye or triple-20 you’re sitting very pretty. It’s the same concept when it comes to taking down a large field tournament otherwise known as GPPs. Sometimes you have to get a little weird and go off the radar. You don’t have to get a ton of these guys in your lineup, but one or two could be incredibly beneficial. It could also fail miserably. But if you’re playing in a tournament like the Milly Maker on DraftKings, you’re going to need to get creative and use at least one low-owned player. Without further ado, let’s get to some Dart Throws that might help us take home a ton of money. Continue reading →
Kickoff for the 2019 season is just around the corner, and if you are up to your elbows in DFS research already, welcome to the club! I personally cannot wait for this season to start so we can have our little Sunday afternoon sweats back.
Today we take an early look at some value plays at each position so we can jam in all those tried-and-true studs.
Almost every year, fantasy owners picking early in the first round target bell cow running backs as they are worth their weight in gold. This year there are four running backs in that group: Saquon Barkley, Christian McCaffrey, Alvin Kamara, and Ezekiel Elliott. A month ago, these four running backs were being drafted all in the top four picks according to Fantasy Football Calculator. However, since Zeke is currently holding out, his ADP has dropped down a little to 1.05 and is the fifth player being taken on average, behind the other three running backs and DeAndre Hopkins.
The Dallas Cowboys last season were a surprise of sorts, they missed the playoffs the year before, but this year they redeemed themselves, improving from a 9-7 record the year before to a 10-6 record. This was enough to win the NFC East and get a birth into the playoffs, where they managed to win a game against the Seahawks, and then lose in the NFC Divisional Playoff game to the eventual Super Bowl participant Los Angeles Rams. During the season, they traded their first-round pick to the Oakland Raiders for WR Amari Cooper.
