DFS Diamonds for 10/9: DFS Pro J.P. on NFL, NHL and PGA



WIN DAILY is excited and proud to welcome DFS Pro Javier Prellezo to the team! Check out his incredible career DFS accomplishments in his bio at the bottom of the page.

Win Daily DFS Grinders: Happy Wednesday to you!!

To those of you that don’t recognize me, I go by JPrellezo on FanDuel and DraftKings, but you can call me Javi. My goal is to assist you in becoming more successful and profitable with some DFS Diamonds. I’ll go through what works for me and I hope I can guide you to the Promised Land! 

For those of you that were in our Premium Gold Slack Chat this past week, I was trying to guide you all to push for Christian McCaffrey. They are simply forcing him the ball and rolling the offense towards CMC. Until they decide to lighten the workload, you need to keep pushing CMC as a CORE PLAY.  Unfortunately, he’s not on the main slate for this week so it’s time to be sad.

Most DFS sites, pros, players, etc. don’t focus on the next week until later on in the week, but I want to provide an early look into Week 6. I want to focus on the top 3-5 games that I’m currently leaning towards for Week 6. I will take a deeper dive into the games later in the week.

DFS Cash Game Plays and Top Plays

Bengals vs. Ravens

This isn’t a game to target on both sides, but more on the Ravens side. The Bengals defense is bad  and for those of you that took advantage of the cheap price on the Bengals DST were thoroughly disappointed. Given two straight weeks of disappointment for Lamar Jackson, I’d expect a BIG bounce-back game for Jackson and the Ravens offense. Keep your eye on Marquise Brown and his ankle throughout the week. 

DFS Core Plays  

  • FanDuel
    • Lamar Jackson, QB, BAL – $8,200
    • Marquise Brown , WR, BAL – $5,800
    • Mark Andrews , TE, BAL – $6,300
  • DraftKings
    • Lamar Jackson, QB , BAL – $6,900
    • Mark Andrews, TE, BAL – $4,800

Value Plays

  • FanDuel
    • Joe Mixon, RB, CIN – $6,400
  • DraftKings
    • Auden Tate, WR, CIN – $4,500

Texans vs. Chiefs

To be honest, this might be the game stack of the week. Texans vs. Falcons did NOT disappoint and I don’t think this game will either. Given two mediocre defenses and two killer offenses, I’ll be heavily invested in this game and I’d expect it to be the chalk. Keep your eye on Patrick Mahomes, who was hobbling all game on that ankle.

Core Plays  

  • FanDuel
    • DeAndre Hopkins, WR, HOU- $8,400
    • Will Fuller, WR, HOU – $6,600
    • Travis Kelce, TE, KC – $7,500
  • DraftKings
    • DeAndre Hopkins, WR, HOU  – $7,400
    • Travis Kelce, TE, KC – $7,000
    • Will Fuller, WR, HOU – $6,000
    • Deshaun Watson, QB, HOU – $6,700

Value Plays

  • FanDuel
    • Carlos Hyde, RB, HOU – $6,000
  • DraftKings
    • Deshaun Watson, QB, HOU – $6,700
    • Carlos Hyde , RB, HOU – $4,400

Falcons vs. Cardinals

Many may shy away from this game because of how bad both teams are, but I wouldn’t say their offenses are as bad as their defenses. Austin Hooper will be the chalk given the Cardinals defense versus TEs, but hopefully, ownership will shy away from Hooper a little given that they shut down Tyler Eifert.

Core Plays  

  • FanDuel
    • Calvin Ridley, WR, ATL – $5,500
    • Julio Jones, WR, ATL – $8,500
  • DraftKings
    • Austin Hooper, TE, ATL – $5,000
    • Julio Jones, WR, ATL – $8,000
    • Matt Ryan, QB, ATL – $6,400

Value Plays

  • FanDuel
    • Larry Fitzgerald, WR, ARI – $5,600
    • Christian Kirk, WR, ARI – $5,600
    • Calvin Ridley, WR, ATL – $5,500
  • DraftKings
    • Calvin Ridley, WR, ATL – $5,700
    • Christian Kirk, WR, ARI – $5,200 (if active)
    • Devonta Freeman, RB, ATL – $5,700

GPP Game(s) of the Week:

Redskins vs. Dolphins

Battle of the defeated! Who will get their first win or will they tie? Honestly, both defenses are bad, both offenses are bad. I suspect that many will NOT be on this game because of how bad they are, but this could be GPP gold. I side more with the Redskins side for offense, but with the Dolphins coming off a bye week. You just never know.

Value Plays

  • FanDuel
    • Adrian Peterson, RB, WAS – $5,300
    • Preston Williams, WR, MIA – $5,600
  • DraftKings
    • Adrian Peterson, RB, WAS – $4,500
    • Preston Williams, WR, MIA – $4,100

Eagles vs. Vikings

Kirk Cousins is alive! I feel like most players will shy away from this game because of what the Eagles just did, but I expect the Vikings to feast on this terrible defense. The Vikings are motivated and Dalvin Cook had an off week. I expect Dalvin Cook to be a CORE PLAY!

Core Plays  

  • FanDuel
    • Stefon Diggs, WR, MIN – $5,800
    • Zach Ertz, TE, PHI – $6,600
    • Dalvin Cook, RB, MIN – $8,200
  • DraftKings
    • Dalvin Cook, RB, MIN – $8,400

Value Plays

  • FanDuel
    • Stefon Diggs, WR, MIN – $5,800
  • DraftKings
    • Stefon Diggs, WR, MIN – $5,900
    • Jordan Howard, RB, PHI – $4,900
    • Zach Ertz , TE, PHI – $5,400

This is NOT a homer pick, but if Darnold is out this week once again, I’d say load up with the Dallas DST and move on from anyone else. Luke Falk is terrible and bad defenses (like the Eagles) have been feasting. The word is that Sam Darnold will be active, but be on the lookout for this news.

I’ll be back Friday with a deeper dive into my favorite NFL games for Week 6.

NHL DFS (10/9)

Three game slates are NOT my favorite, but I do like to max enter on low-cost entries to see if we can hit big. My strategy is to put in 10-20 lineups for each team. Ideally, you can do 10 PP1 for each team and 10 PP2 for each team. It isn’t the best strategy, but it worked more times than once. I’d also recommend doing different combos of game stacks and hope for a 6-5 shootout in one of the games. With these PP lines, I’d focus on a game stack or focus on a particular stack that you’re in love with to mix and match,

Kings vs. Canucks

Kings – The Kings were bad last year and will continue to be bad. Losing 6-5 to Edmonton in their first game shows us a promising offense. As expected, their defense is bad and the Canucks could be a sneaky stack even though they are supposed to be any good this year. Core plays for the Kings include Anze Kopitar, Tyler Toffoli, and Ilya Kovalchuk.

Canucks – A young squad with lots to learn. This game might the one we want to avoid given the inconsistencies of both teams. I don’t know what to expect, but there are some solid core players here. Core plays for the Canucks include Elias Pettersson, J.T. Miller, and Alexander Edler.

Key Takeaway – Being on the second night of a back-to-back, I’d load up on the PP1 and PP2 of the Canucks. Nothing is sneaky on a three game slate, but the Canucks are a solid play against the worst team in the NHL.  I’d fade the Kings.

Devils vs. Flyers

Devils – The defense has been suspect through two games and offense seems middle of the pack. I’d fade them for now, but the offense does look promising coming off what they did last year. Core plays from New Jersey include P.K. Subban, Taylor Hall, Wayne Simmonds, Travis Zajac, and Kyle Palmieri.

Flyers – One game, one win. They allowed three goals on the path to a 4-3 win against the lowly Blackhawks. This game has the potential for high scoring given the rivalry and the poor defenses on both sides. I’d target more the Flyers side vs. the Devils side. Core plays from Philadelphia include Claude Giroux, Jakub Voracek, James van Riemsdyk, and Shea Gostisbehere.

Key DFS Takeaway – This game has the potential to be high scoring so a game stack isn’t out of the question, but I’d prefer the Sabres vs. Canadians in that regard.

Canadiens vs. Sabres

Canadiens – Through two games, they’ve allowed three goals and five goals while losing both games in Shootouts. Defense looks to be a problem for the Canadiens, but the offense does NOT. I’d stack the top two PP lines with a focus on the PP1. Core plays from Montreal include Phillip Danault, Shea Weber, and Brendan Gallagher.

Sabres – They have beat two solid teams thus far with only three goals allowed thus far in the first two games. The offense put up seven recently against a solid Devils team, so we can wait and see to see how it goes, but I would just focus on the Canadiens side as of now. Core plays from Buffalo include Jack Eichel , Jeff Skinner, Victor Olofsson, and Sam Reinhart. These guys will be on the PP1 unit and have good value for your stacks.

Key DFS Takeaway – My primary game stack play would be this one. Both defenses are pretty suspect and both offenses seem to be strong this year. If I had to pick a side for this game, I’d choose Buffalo.

PGA DFS (10/9)  – Houston Open

Core Plays

Doc Redman (FD : $8,400 ; DK : $7,200) – Best value for this tournament.  He can find his way into contention given he is third in greens in regulation and fifth in strokes gained off the tee. Best value on the slate and will most likely be the chalk.

Harris English (FD : $9,900 ; DK : $8,900) – Weak field and this is your most expensive play on both sites, but this golfer was once elite. He’s an above-average with his putter and his short game is one of the best in the game.  Although he has a weak approach game, he can be trusted given the weak field of this tournament.

My Consensus Value Rankings for this Tournament:

  • Harris English
  • Doc Redman
  • Lanto Griffin
  • Henrik Stenson
  • Brian Harman
  • Scottie Scheffler
  • Jhonattan  Vegas
  • Zack Sucher
