The Kansas City Chiefs are your Super Bowl LIV champions! It took them 50 years to find their way back to the big game since beating the Minnesota Vikings back in 1970 but they did it spectacularly on their way to a fourth-quarter rally to beat the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 for the win. The suffering of Chiefs fans is over and Andy Reid has officially locked himself into the Hall of Fame after finally grabbing his first Super Bowl victory as head coach.

TNF Fantasy Preview: Kansas City Chiefs vs Denver Broncos

Mike Fanelli | October 17th, 2019 

Last week’s Thursday night game between the New York Giants and the New England Patriots was a closer game than many expected, at least till the fourth quarter. Eventually, the Patriots won 35-14 as the defense scored two touchdowns to match Tom Brady‘s two rushing touchdowns. While the game wasn’t full of fantasy points, Golden Tate and Julian Edelman joined Brady and the Patriots D/ST as the only players to score more than 14 fantasy points in the game. Hopefully, tonight’s game offers more big-time fantasy scorers.

Tom Greene | September 30th, 2019 

Ah yes, it was a duel of top-tier QBs in Detroit this afternoon. Matthew Stafford took on Patrick Mahomes in a battle that Lions fans won’t forget, but may want to. A day that looked promising early, and even late, turned for the worse as Darrel Williams crossed the goal line to seal the deal for the Chiefs. Continue reading

NFL DFS: Cash Game Plays for Week 1 (Kickoff Sunday)

Joey Ricotta | September 8th, 2019

Well, this is it. This is what we’ve all been waiting for. NFL football is back baby! Of course, we had the Chicago versus Green Bay game on Thursday night to kick off the season, but that was simply a tease. A low scoring defensive battle with one touchdown over the course of the game. Sure, it was a good football game (not the outcome I wanted being a Bears fan), but not at all what fantasy players were hoping for either. There will be a lot more action and points today, guaranteed. Cash games have been an area we can find an edge when it pertains to daily fantasy football. Every year new players jump aboard the always rolling DFS train. Luckily for you, most of the new players will be applying what they know about season-long fantasy into DFS. That’s not a terrible strategy, but it can lead to bad habits or skipping over important details. By putting in the extra effort and taking in as much as you can, you’re already winning. With all of that said, let’s kick off this season the right way. Take a stroll with me and look at some options to target for Week 1 DFS Cash Games. Continue reading

The Walsh Way – Week One NFL DFS GPP Plays

Kevin Walsh | September 7th, 2019

First, I’d like to introduce myself. My name is Kevin Walsh, and I am from Pittsburgh, PA. I have been playing DFS since DraftStreet still existed. This is my first season writing for The Scorecrow, and this is my first tournament rundown. I have written about DFS before, so hopefully, that shouldn’t be too much of an issue. I am a huge football and hockey fan, and I am always so engulfed in fantasy sports from September until January. I plan to give you a peek inside what I have going on in my head and hopefully lead you to some DFS success (as well as myself, of course), but enough about me, let’s get to the good stuff.

Fantasy Battle: JuJu Smith-Schuster vs Travis Kelce

Ian Brennan | Aug 12th, 2019

Welcome to another fantasy battles. I will evaluate two players who have similar ADP in 12-team PPR scoring. The two competitors in question will be Travis Kelce and JuJu Smith-Schuster. According to Fantasy Football Calculator, both players are being taken in the early second round. With a similar ADP, we will look at the reasons for and against taking both players and whom I value based on the points made. Kelce is currently being taken as the TE1 while Smith-Schuster is being taken as the WR7. In 2018, Kelce finished as the TE1 while Smith-Schuster finished as the WR8. Follow along to see the pros and cons of drafting one over the other.

With that in mind, here are my top 12 tight ends for the 2019 season.

Fantasy Fallout from the Tyreek Hill News

Mike Fanelli | July 19th, 2019

Earlier today the NFL announced that the Kansas City Chiefs star wide receiver Tyreek Hill would not be suspended after being investigated for domestic violence this offseason. Whether you agree or disagree with this decision, whether you are a fan of the NFL’s personal conduct policy or not, the reality is Hill is allowed to take part in training camp next week and play in all 16 games this season. I’m not here to sway your opinion on the NFL’s decision or Hill as a person. I am here to explain how the news impacts the entire Chiefs’ offense from a fantasy perspective.

John Wagner | December 6th, 2018

Let’s talk about the wonderful tale that is happening in Kansas City in the form of the Chiefs. You can’t say Kansas City without saying Patrick Mahomes, kind of like back in 2015 when you couldn’t say Kansas City without saying Salvador Perez.

Week 12 Streaming Options: QB, TE, D/ST, K, and Deep “Boom” Plays

Travis Finkel | November 21st, 2018

Hello, Patrick Mahomes and Jared Goff owners. Welcome to Week 12 edition of streaming options. After Monday’s performance, I’m sure you’re sick to your stomach thinking that you have to start somebody else at quarterback. There is hope for you, I would feel less anxious than a Travis Kelce owner who needs a win this week. If you are that Travis Kelce fan, we’re going to try to get you a touchdown with your TE streamer in Week 12. The tight end wire doesn’t really offer much more than a touchdown prayer at this point.

Nick Popio | November 9th, 2018

Kansas City Chiefs: 2018 Season Preview

Kody Clawson | August 27th, 2018

The Kansas City Chiefs were a streaky team last year. Although they finished 10-6, they were bounced out of the playoffs in a tough loss to the Titans. Can they find some stability this season with all the new faces in town?

Deciphering the Tight End to Help You Maximize Value and Crush Your Draft

Frank Dyevoich | June 21st, 2018

One of the most frustrating positions in fantasy is the Tight End.  You’re required to play at least one, and unlike the other offensive positions, a 10 point performance is considered pretty good. When it comes to drafting a TE you either want to be one of the first or one of the last. DON’T get caught in the run on TEs. Start the run or wait, unless there’s value you can’t ignore.  After diving into the numbers, I’ve come up with some realizations to improve my rankings and help you maximize your TE value on draft day.
