In today’s post, We are going to review NFL Draftkings football. I will be letting you know a few things you should keep in mind. While you are beginning the NFL season next Sunday. This season is going to be action packed for sure. It is already playing out to be very unpredictable right now.
Teddy Bridgewater just suffered an injury. That probably won’t even allow him to see a snap this season. So it’s good to be on the lookout for his replacement. Then you have Colin Kaepernick and his situation. I mean it’s going to be ideal to see what the 49ers are going to do with him. That’s just to name a few things.
Trending in the NFL as of right now. But that’s not what we are here to discuss. So let’s get to the good stuff, shall we?
NFL Draftkings Football 411 – Best Review
Learn The System
Draftkings is not like Fanduel. So you need to approach it with a different mindset. The layout is different and the scoring is different. Even though they may have similar contests. You need to separate the two in your mind. A strategy that works for one.
Will not work for the other. Especially in football. A big reason is that on Fanduel you get a kicker. Which in most cases will score you 10+ fantasy points. Then on Draftkings, you do not even have the option to draft a kicker. So you now have to find a way to get those ten points. In another fashion. See how using the same strategy wouldn’t work?
As long as you can separate the two and come up with two different ways of winning for each. You will be ok. I remember when I first started playing DFS football. I would jump from site to site and try to use the Sam strategies and would get crushed
. I mean sometimes the lineup would be the same and win on one site and not the other. Well for one I was missing a kicker on one and in the other, I had two TE’s so. It makes sense to me now. On how and why that happened.
You Have Time
The cool thing about Draftkings. Is that you have time. What do I mean when I say that? Well on Draftkings you have the option to swap players and change your lineup complete before the game starts.
On Fanduel you do not have this option. If your contest starts at 1pm and you have players in there who’s games start at 8 or 8:30. Your line up is now locked at 1 and you cannot change them. This is very bad for late scratches and guys who just gets sick and doesn’t feel like playing that day.
Now you have to sit there for hours and stare at a guy’s face. Knowing he’s not going to give you any points. Draftkings allows you to tweak your lineup. Until the game starts for each individual player. They don’t lock the entire line up like Fanduel does.
So you have a little more time and you can be a little more relaxed with your drafting. Be sure to keep an eye out for last minute news. Like I always say it could be the difference between $900 or $9,000.
Don’t Let The Commercials Break You
This falls more under self-discipline more than anything. This is around the time of year. Where you will start seeing Draftkings and Fanduel commercials. All day long if you are watching any kind of sports network.
The thing is the commercials can be very enticing and make you want to deposit each time you see them. I’m here to let you know first hand. I was once that guy. I would see these commercials and the money raining down all over the screen. Guys making truckloads of money playing DFS.
It made me deposit way more than I researched and I would be disappointed with my results. It wasn’t that the commercials were causing it.
It was because I was just drafting like a fool and not taking the time to make sure my picks were legitimate. So take it from me. Trust me I know how it is. But do not let those commercials break you.
Defense And TE’S Win Games – On Draftkings
I will say this and I will forever say this. Defense and TE’s win games on Draftkings. Why? Because they accumulate points fast. If you have a good defense in play you could be looking at cashing for that day.
Defenses aren’t usually highly owned like players are. What I mean when I say that is. You will rarely play a contest and find a defense that is owned over 50%. You will see this with players every week.
But not so much with defenses. Which makes them high on my to get list. Research the defense you plan on choosing and research the offense it is up against.
Do some basic mathematics and sprinkle in a little common sense and your defense will reward you. In most cases, you will hope for your defense to hold the opposing team to zero points. When your defense does this. At the end of the game, they will get an additional +10 points added to what they’ve already accumulated during the game.
But with kickers, it’s hard to do this. That’s why it’s good to have a decent kicker in your lineup as well. But since you can’t choose a kicker on Draftkings. You must settle for the next best thing and that is a TE.
Two of them is even better. Which is totally possible on Draftkings. Having Gronk and Antonio Gates is never a bad idea. At least it wasn’t last season.
This is the 411 on NFL Draftkings Football. You can take this advice and store it in your head for the upcoming week. I’m not saying that following these steps will turn you into a millionaire overnight.
But if it does. I hope you let me know and send me a little something via PayPal. Haha no I’m just playing. But no seriously I accept checks, handouts, and donations. Anyway, I will guarantee your winning percentage will increase. It has no choice but to.
If you are researching and choosing players based on facts. That will set you apart from the pack and a result of that in DFS is cash.
