Review of Last Week
Last week, we ended the season off strong finishing in the top 10% of all of the cash games that were entered. This ended the season incredibly strong as five of the last six weeks all placed within the top half of 50/50’s.
WHat went well?
- Jamison Crowder at 5% owned was a big reason for the success of the lineup as the slot receiver showed that once again the Bills struggle to defend the position as he had 8 receptions for 66 yards and a touchdown.
- Jets defense at 30% was another big reason for success. As expected, the Bills only played their starters for a short portion of the game as Josh Allen only threw the ball five times while Matt Barkley saw a majority of the snaps in this one.
- A.J. Brown at 17% was the final low owned player who succeeded. Brown bounced back tremendously after being shut down the previous week against Marshon Lattimore. Brown had his way against the weak Texans secondary.
What went Wrong?
- The only true mistake on this slate was playing Matt Ryan at $7,800. Ryan was not terrible throwing for 313 yards and a touchdown, but with Dak Prescott being in the same price range, he was likely the quarterback to go to as he threw for 303 yards and 4 touchdowns.
How to approach playoff DFS Slates?
Playoff DFS can be a lot of fun, but at the same time, we have to realize what it is. Essentially it is a glorified afternoon slate and from a bankroll, standpoint should be treated accordingly. This is not the time to chase losses or try to increase your profit. This is a slate that many people are going to end up on very similar lineups due to the lack of choices, and therefore it will drive a significant overlap.
