Win Daily Show Interview with Rob Rivera of “The Black Hole”

On this Win Daily Show Interview with Rob Rivera of “The Black Hole” Michael Rasile and Rob discuss the idea, creation, and foundation of “The Black Hole.” Known as one of the NFL’s most notorious fan bases, The Black Hole has been loud and prominent since it’s inception in the mid 90s. When the Raiders moved from Las Angeles to Oakland, a group of fun loving fans came together to create a movement.

Over the years, Rob and his friends continued to recruit fans to join them at tailgates and parties until it got big enough to officially organize as a group. This also led to them all wanting to sit together at the game, or stand and scream together. It got to the point where other fans left their seats in the section and The Black Hole took over.

Once more and more people saw what was going on, they wanted to join. To the point where people from Alaska and New York were asking to be members of the group. This eventually led to The Black Hole creating chapters for the organization and having them spread across the United States and internationally.

Rob discusses the move from Oakland to Las Vegas and how it hurts the group, and all the fans in Oakland. They understand this is a business, but wish for the team to stay. The Black Hole already has their office outside the new stadium and is in the process of planning their move. While saddened by the move, Rob did say a lot can come from a move to Vegas. More nightlife, more opportunity for events, and more people to engage with on a daily basis.

Week 12 DFS Tight End CashGame Plays 

Darren Waller, OAK at NYJ

FD($6,200)          DK ($5,700)

Waller’s price has risen on DraftKings, but dropped a few hundred on FD – but that’s just minutiae. After a seven-target week and another 7-78-0 tacked onto his season total (56-666-3), we’ve got to see him as a solid cash game pick in a week without many sure things. He’s a much-matured player now, has a relatively safe floor and has plenty of upside against the Jets.

Zach Ertz, PHI vs. SEA

FD($6,100)         DK ($6,000) 

It’s a concern that his price jumped $1K on DK, but he’s coming off back-to-back 11-targets weeks, is looking a lot more like his old self and silencing his critics. I’m not going to overthink my cash game TEs this week. I think Waller and Ertz are the best options unless you’re paying down for a bargain like Mike Gesicki (more on him later).

Week 12 DFS Tight End GPP Plays

Ryan Griffin, NYJ vs. OAK

FD($5,600)         DK ($4,200) 

Last week I mentioned that Griffin gets no respect in theDK pricing algorithm, and it’s been corrected – kind of. He’s still a solid GPPplay on both sites and has as much upside as any TE this week, coming off a5-109-1 game in Week 11.

Jared Cook, NO vs. CAR

FD($6,000)          DK ($4,500)

Cookhas a difficult matchup in Week 12 facing the Panthers, who defend TEs quitewell. He’s not my favorite choice this week and his price is a little too highon FD, but his ownership will likely be restricted to Saints stacks, and that’sa good way to get exposure to him in GPPs.

Jacob Hollister, SEA at PHI

FD($5,100)         DK ($4,300) 

Coming off two big performance then a Week 11bye, Hollister’s price has shot up to $4,300 on DK, but I think he’s worth it.I’m, not convinced he’s a great cash game play just yet, but he’s certainly gotthe upside to make him a solid GPP play (10-62-1 in Week 10 at SF).

Greg Olsen, CAR at NO

FD($5,100)         DK ($4,100) 

Olsen had just five targets last week but he went for 5-57-0. If he can have another day like that and add a TD, he’ll be in good shape. This game could get high-scoring (45.5 total), so the game script could help his cause, and Olsen is a target that Kyle Allen trusts.

Cameron Brate, TB at ATL

FD($5,400)          DK ($3,600)

The Bucs are playing games with us. Brate was targeted 14times in Week 11, hauling in 10-73-0. He’s on my list of GPP plays because of thematchup and the obvious upside, but I’ll limit my exposure when I feel like I’mgetting toyed with.

Dallas Goedert, PHI vs. SEA

FD($5,200)         DK ($3,700) 

I wouldn’t play Goedert with Zach Ertz, but they both havesolid matchups this week against Seattle. He’s actually been more consistentthan Ertz over the past week weeks, so he’s another cash game option if you’dprefer not to spend up, but I’ll be focusing on him in GPPs because he’s scoreda TD in three of his last four games and has two-TD upside this week.

Week 12 DFS Tight End PuntPlays 

MikeGesicki, MIA at CLE

FD($5,000)         DK ($3,400) 

Gesickihas been solid, and if the Dolphins are serious about beating the Browns, they’llbe using him. Joe Schobert is questionable, the Browns defense is missing someimportant defensive line components, and Gesicki is an athletic, big-play orientedTE who’s been woefully underutilized. He’s had six targets in each of the lastthree, but that’s just not enough. We could see a 10-target game for him in Wek12, and I’ll be way ahead of the field on my ownership in GPPs.

TylerEifert, CIN vs. PIT

FD($5,000)         DK ($3,100) 

Eifert’s price is stilldown and he’s probably going to see more usage in Week 12 against a Steelersdefense that ranks 28th in the NFL against TEs. He’s probably dependenton a TD to be worth using in GPPs, but he did see 9 targets and haul in 6-74-0in Week 9 against the Rams, so he’s got some upside.

Additional Week 12 DFS GPP andpunt options:

BenWatson, NE vs. DAL (FD $5,300, DK $3,100) – GPP

JonnuSmith, TEN vs. JAC (FD $5,300, DK $3,600) – GPP

NoahFant, DEN at BUF (FD $5,100, DK $3,900) – GPP

O.J.Howard, TB vs. NO (FD $5,000, DK $3,300) – GPP

BlakeJarwin, DAL at DET (FD $4,500, DK $2,900) – Punt

FosterMoreau, OAK (FD $4,700, DK $2,800) – Punt

Week 12 DFS DST Cash Game Plays 

Chicago Bears (CHI vs. NYG)

FD($5,000)         DK ($3,700) 

The Bears, with theirability tot get to the QB, have to be one of the top plays of Week 12 in allformats. Daniel Jones, for as good as he’s looked, is a fumbler. He fumbles theball over and over, and he’ll be in that position on Sunday, likely dodgingBears lineman and being forced into bad throws.

Pittsburgh Steelers (PIT at CIN)

FD($5,000)         DK ($4,000) 

The Bengals are terrible and the Steelers DST has been one of the most productive units in DFS. They had a bad week against the Browns, but are in an excellent spot for a rebound in Week 12.

Week 12 DFS DST GPP Plays

Buffalo Bills (BUF at DEN)

FD($5,000)         DK ($3,400) 

It’s not my favorite thing to go after the Broncos in Mile High, but the Bills should be up to the task of stopping this mediocre offense and creating some turnovers by their inexperienced QB. They are a consensus top-five pick DST in Week 12.

Detroit Lions (DET at WAS)

FD($5,000)         DK ($3,100) 

This is a great matchup on paper, but the Lions could be down some key defensive players in Week 12 (Trey Flowers included), so my use of them will be restricted to GPPs, with the possibility of multiple Dwayne Haskins gaffes still lurking as a distinct possibility. Get some shares in tourneys.

Oakland Raiders (OAK at NYJ)

FD($4,600)         DK ($3,600) 

The Raiders defenselooks better every week, and the Jets can get a little silly with the turnovers,as you all know. Clelin Farrell and Max Crosby make a mean defensive end combo,so Sam Darnold better be on his toes.

Week 12 DFS DST PuntPlays 

Jacksonville Jaguars (JAC atTEN)

FD($4,200)         DK ($2,800) 

I’m not looking at too many punts this week for DST, but the Jags make my list. They’ve had a couple of bad losses over the past couple weeks and will likely come out pretty fired up in this divisional matchup. I’m not sold on Ryan Tannehill, and if they can contain Derrick Henry to a relatively pedestrian day, we could see some results.

Seattle Seahawks (SEA at PHI)

FD($4,100)         DK ($3,600)

The Seattle DST is massivelyunderpriced, especially against an Eagles team that’s missing so many of its offensivecomponents. I’ll have some shares of them in contrarian GPP stacks using Jacob Hollisterand Chris Carson (without Russell Wilson).

Week 11 DFS Tight End CashGame Plays 

Mark Andrews, BAL vs. HOU

FD ($6,900)          DK ($6,100)

With 6-53-2 in Week 10, things worked out for Andrews, who we listed as our top GPP choice. There’s a dearth of viable cash game options this week, so even in a tough matchup against the Texans, Andrews is likely the best we’ve got. You can always spend down at TE in cash games and assume a little more risk since it’s a generally inconsistent position in terms of week-to-week production, but Andrews should be considered an elite TE at this point.

Jared Cook, NO at TB

FD ($6,000)         DK ($4,400) 

It’s a ugly week at TE. Cook rarely can be considered a lock forproduction, but he’s been remarkably consistent for the past three weeks withdouble-digit DK points in all three, and his 10 targets last week were aseason-high for him.  His price has comeup on FD, but DK still has him listed as just $4,400, making him a huge bargainin a great matchup (TB ranks 31st against TEs)

Week 9 DFS Tight End GPP Plays

Darren Waller, OAK vs. CIN

FD ($6,700)          DK ($5,500)

Waller has just as much upside as any TE this week based on matchup and typical volume, but Derek Carr is spreading the ball around more to his other TEs and WRs like Hunter Renfrow. Waller is worth a look in GPPs, but he’s no cash game lock.

Eric Ebron, IND vs. JAC

FD ($5,200)          DK ($3,600)

Ebronis actually the discounted Colts TE this week, coming in at a remarkably low $3,600after a 12-target game in Week 10 against the Dolphins. His ownership might bea little higher than Doyle’s based on the pricing.

Jack Doyle, IND vs. JAC

FD ($5,400)          DK ($4,000)

It’s fascinating to watch Doyle and Ebron flip back andforth on DK, with Doyle priced up this week despite just four targets to Ebron’s12 a week ago. Both make sense for GPPs, though it would take some hutzpah toplay them both together. That’s not recommended.

T.J. Hockenson, DET vs. DAL

FD ($5,300)         DK ($3,900) 

Hockenson gets a favorable matchup against Dallas, as the Cowboys are30th in the league against TEs based on DK points allowed. The rookie parlayedhis six targets into 3-47-0 last week facing the Bears, and he gets Jeff Driskelagain this week. He’s not a lock, but worth sprinkling into some GPPs.

Ross Dwelley, SF vs. ARI

FD ($4,900)         DK ($3,400) 

Dwelley only hauled in three of his seven targets last week,but he faces the worst defense in the league against TEs and should have moresuccess against the Cards than he did against Seattle. George Kittle is listedas doubtful for Week 11.

Week 9 DFS Tight End PuntPlays 

TylerEifert, CIN at OAK

FD ($5,000)         DK ($3,200) 

Eifert’s stock is on therise, as theBengals have installed Ryan Finley down the stretch and a big-bodied, sturdytarget like Tyler could offer a security blanket for the rookie. This week hegets a favorable matchup against a Raiders team that has struggled in passdefense and will likely allow multiple dump-offs to Eifert and the RBs.

Ryan Griffin, NYJ at MIA

FD ($4,800)         DK ($2,900) 

Griffin gets no respect ion the DK pricing algorithm, andthat’s just fine with me. I’ll have tons of shares of the Jets TE, especiallywith Chris Herndon out for the season and no longer a threat to cut into hissnaps and targets.

Greg Olsen, CAR vs. ATL

FD ($5,100)         DK ($3,900) 

Olsen had 10 targetslast week and he could have a huge impact in this game if the Falcons stack thebox against CMC. I love the Panthers offense as a whole this week, as last week’sperformance vs. the Saints was probably an anomaly.

Kyle Rudolph, MIN vs. DEN

FD ($4,500)         DK ($3,600) 

FanDuel must have something against Rudolph, because he’s just $4,500 there. For a guy with four TDs in his last four weeks, that’s way too low. Use him in GPPs at TE or flex if you aren’t loading up on Dalvin Cook and the run game.

Additional Week 9 DFS GPP andpunt options:

ZachErtz, PHI vs. NE (FD $6,200, DK $5,000) – GPP

NoahFant, DEN at MIN (FD $5,100, DK $3,700) – GPP

O.J.Howard, TB vs. NO (FD $5,300, DK $3,600) – GPP

MikeGesicki, MIA vs. BUF (FD $5,100, DK $3,500) – GPP

BlakeJarwin, DAL at DET (FD $4,500, DK $2,900) – Punt

NickBoyle, BAL (FD $4,900, DK $2,700) – Punt

Week 11 DFS DST Cash GamePlays 

Buffalo Bills (BUF at MIA)

FD ($5,000)         DK ($3,800) 

In Week 11, the Bills facethe Dolphins. They had a poor showing versus the Browns in Week 10 but scored10+ against this Miami team in Week 7 when Preston Williams was healthy andthey had more viable RBs. They offer a solid floor and upside this week and shouldbe a cash game staple, and the price on DK is still affordable.

New Orleans Saints (NO vs. ATL)

FD ($5,000)         DK ($3,700) 

With 14 sacks over theirpast four games, the Saints make for a solid option in all formats against abanged-up Falcons offensive unit. They’re cash-viable with 20-point upside inGPPs.

San Francisco 49ers (SF vs.ARI)

FD ($4,900)         DK ($4,000) 

The 49ers defense gets a favorable matchup and is one of thebest units in the game, and they didn’t take advantage a couple weeks ago in Arizona.Now, on their home turf, we could see a completely different story emerge. They’re  solid play in all formats.

Week 11 DFS DST GPP Plays

New England Patriots (NE atPHI)

FD ($5,000)         DK ($3,500) 

This might be the cheapest you’ll see the Patriots defense the restof the way out this season on DK, where they’ve scored double digits in everyweek of the season except Week 9 and their bye. They should easily be $4Kagainst a banged-up Eagles team that’s lacking in consistent offensive options.The best option for GPPs (20+ upside) and cash-viable as well.

Minnesota Vikings (MIN vs. DEN)

FD ($4,700)         DK ($3,400) 

The Vikings defensive line must be licking theircollective chops at the prospect of going after Brandon Allen on their hometurf. This week could feature their highest DST score since the dropped 16 DKpoints on Atlanta in Week 1.

Oakland Raiders (OAK vs. CIN)

FD ($5,000)         DK ($3,300) 

The Raiders face one ofthe worst teams in the league, if not the worst, and should put plenty of pressureon Ryan Finley despite their issues with pass coverage. They might have a lowerflor than some of these other STs listed, but they have just as much upside asanyone except the Pats and Vikings.

Dallas Cowboys (DAL at DET)

FD ($4,100)         DK ($3,600) 

The Cowboys are relatively inexpensive, because they’re a risky bunchto get into shootouts and don’t create a ton of turnovers. They have muchhigher upside this week against a poor run defense (they can slow it down andyou can pair Ezekiel Elliott with the Cowboys DST in a few GPP builds)) and apositive game script for the defense against Jeff Driskel.

Indianapolis Colts (IND vs. JAC)

FD ($4,400)         DK ($3,300) 

TheColts are a boom-or-bust GPP play this week, as they face the Jaguars and NickFoles. I’m willing to consider them at home against a QB who could be rusty,especially sine they have a solid run defense and Foles might be forced to throwa bit more than he’d like in his first game back.

Week 11 DFS DST PuntPlays 

New York Jets (NYJ at WAS)

FD ($4,500)         DK ($3,100) 

The Jets face a rookie QB (Dwayne Haskins) and have looked muchbetter defensively the past few weeks. They’re a viable play in all formatsthis week and still won’t cost you much.

Baltimore Ravens (BAL vs. HOU)

FD ($4,300)         DK ($3,000) 

The Ravens DST has a toughmatchup, but the Texans are not immune to mistakes. They’re a risky play butcheap on both sites and GPP viable.

Carolina Panthers (CAR vs. ATL)

FD ($3,700)         DK ($3,000) 

The Panthers might be my favorite punt defense this week in GPPs,because they have the best RB in fantasy and the Falcons are a mistake-prone groupmissing their top RB and TE Austin Hooper, a key safety valve for Matt Ryan.

Thursday Night Football Value and Punt Plays

Running back Jalen Richard ($3,000) is by far the cheapest player that will see significant snaps. Richard led the Raiders in receiving yards last week (59) and set a new season-high with 70 total yards. He is primarily used on third-downs and obvious pass-catching formats so he does have value in formats that reward receiving production. The matchup also favors a pass-catching running back. Over the past four weeks, the Chargers have allowed the fourth-most receptions, seventh-most targets, and sixth-most yards to running backs. In his two games, last year versus the Chargers Richard averaged 5.5 receptions for 52.5 receiving yards. Easy 10-12 fantasy points in DraftKings scoring. Great punt play for DFS.

Favorite Stack

With the Chargers favored in the game with a total of 49.0 points, the best builds are about incorporating the Los Angeles key offensive players. This Oakland pass defense is downright putrid as they have allowed the most fantasy points to quarterbacks over the past four weeks. The Raiders at home have also have been attacked through the air; they have allowed the third-most passing attempts per game (38.7). Philip Rivers ($10,000) is locked in for at least 300 passing yards and two passing touchdowns at least. You will want to definitely stack Rivers with his two best receivers Keenan Allen ($9,000) and Mike Williams ($7,400). Over the past four weeks, the Raiders have allowed the most fantasy points to the wide receiver position.

You can also add Melvin Gordon ($7,200) and/or Austin Ekeler ($7,000) in multiple builds to the stack. Over the past four weeks, the Raiders have allowed the eighth-most fantasy points to the running back position. Specifically, they have allowed second-most passing touchdowns to running backs over the past four weeks. Both should be involved in the passing game on Thursday night football.

Then I would recommend adding in Josh Jacobs ($9,400) from the Raiders. Jacobs has continued to smash at home like we saw last week. 23.4 fantasy points per game at home versus just 11.7 points per game on the road. The matchup is also great versus the Chargers, who have allowed the sixth-most fantasy points and fifth-most rushing attempts to running backs over the past four weeks.

Thursday Night Football Contrarian Plays

Ekeler is priced just $200 less than Gordon, so he is going to see less ownership with Gordon coming off his best game of the season. With no Arden Key and the Raiders’ defense just generally horrible, the Chargers D/ST ($6,300) is also worth a look. Trent Brown and Rodney Hudson are dealing with injuries and the Chargers D/ST has seven sacks over their past two games. On the side for kickers, Mike Badgley ($5,700) is back and healthy so he would be the option to go with. The Chargers are third in the NFL in field-goal attempts per game with Oakland ranking third to last in that category.

Get ready for Thursday night football! Be sure to check out Monkey Knife Fight as well and wage the overs on Philip Rivers and unders on Derek Carr.

This report will provide plays for the NFL DFS Monday Night Football slate. I will break down the top fantasy players to consider.

PODCAST: Learning from the Big Winners and MNF Showdown with The King and Dan Wehr

Chicago Bears vs. Washington Redskins

O/U: 41.5 (CHI -4.5)

The Chicago Bears travel to Landover, MD to take on the Washington Redskins. Jonathan Allen will be rejoining the Redskins defense after going down with a knee injury in Week One. The Redskins defense has been picked apart their first two weeks, surrendering an average of 455 yards per game with 168 yards of that being on the ground. Carson Wentz and Dak Prescott were both in tune with hitting their short and intermediate passes against the Redskins and allowed them to take deep shots downfield.

I do not believe tonight is the night for a Bears offensive outbreak, but I think Trubisky is in a better spot than he was in Weeks One and Two. The Redskins defense has only 20 QB pressures and two sacks and even with Jonathan Allen back, he is not 100% and I question his effectiveness in the pass rush. The Bears have struggled with offensive play calling with 42% of all passes going to the RB position. I believe NFL defenses have figured out Matt Nagy’s offensive system. He vowed earlier in the year to not use Tarik Cohen as he did last year, but this still remains to be seen.

Cohen has a 60% snap share and 15 receptions in 2019 compared to his 50% snap share in 2018. This is why I believe the intermediate passes are so crucial in tonight’s game. If the Bears can get away from the predictable dump off passes to their running backs and utilize the talent they have at receiver they should see better game flow and ultimately more scoring.

NFL DFS: DraftKings Approach

NFL DFS Captain:

Allen Robinson ($14,700), Mitch Trubisky ($15,600), Bears DST ($9,300), and Tarik Cohen ($10,200).

NFL DFS Flex:

Mitch Trubisky ($10,400), David Montgomery ($9,400), Bears DST ($1,600), Taylor Gabriel ($4,400), Trey Burton ($6,000), Terry McLaurin ($8,600), Chris Thompson ($7,400), Tarik Cohen ($6,800), Paul Richardson Jr. ($5,000)

My favorite approach on Draftkings is Allen Robinson at the Captain spot and pairing him up with Mitch Trubisky in the flex. I will have minimal Redskins in my single entry lineup.

NFL DFS: FanDuel Approach

NFL DFS MVP:

Mitch Trubisky ($14,500), Allen Robinson ($13,000), David Montgomery ($12,500), and Tarik Cohen ($9,500).

NFL DFS Flex:

(All plays at MVP can be used in flex) Taylor Gabriel ($6,500), Trey Burton ($6,000), Terry McLaurin ($13,500), Paul Richarson Jr. ($8000), Dustin Hopkins ($9,500).

My favorite approach on Fanduel is Mitch Trubisky at the MVP spot and pairing him up with Allen Robinson in the flex.

This report will provide plays for the NFL DFS Monday Night Football slate. I will break down the top fantasy players to consider.

Cleveland Browns vs. New York Jets

O/U: 45.5 (CLE -2.5)

After a disappointing Week One home opener against the Titans, the Browns look to rebound on the road against the New York Jets who will be without quarterback Sam Darnold due to illness. The Browns allowed 125 yards on the ground and 248 through the air in Week One. The Titans showed us how ineffective Baker Mayfield can be if defenses are able to pressure him and force him to make throws he normally wouldn’t.

I cannot see the Jets replicating what the Titans did. C.J. Mosley has already been ruled out for tonight’s game and that leaves a gaping hole in the middle of the Jets run defense and pass rush. Le’Veon Bell is also questionable with a shoulder injury, but media outlets suggest he should play tonight. Assuming he plays, I have to imagine he will carry a ton of usage as the Jets do not have a lot of offensive talent outside of Bell. If the Browns can execute their game plan and contain Bell the Jets offense could be in for a long night It is worth noting that Demaryius Thomas and Trevor Siemian played together in Denver. Thomas is also listed as questionable, and he definitely isn’t the same player he was in 2017.

NFL DFS: DraftKings Approach

One of the key differences between DK and FD is the salary is 1.5 times more expensive at the Captain position on DK. I will provide some core options at both Captain and Flex positions.

My main approach with single games is game scripting. It takes out a lot out of the guesswork and gives you a foundation when building your lineups. In tonight’s matchup we have a 45.5 O/U with the Browns being favored by -2.5 points. Suggested low scoring on both sides and a close spread almost always puts kickers into play for me. All players in consideration at the Captain position can also be used in the Flex player pool.

Captain: Nick Chubb ($15,000), Le’veon Bell ($17,400), Odell Beckham Jr. ($17,700), and Jarvis Landry ($13,500).

Flex: Austin Seibert ($3400), Sam Ficken ($3200), Ty Montgomery ($1600), David Njoku ($5800), Jamison Crowder ($8000), Robbie Anderson ($7000), Demaryius Thomas ($3800), and Trevor Siemian ($8200)

NFL DFS: FanDuel Approach

FanDuel does not hit us with a salary penalty for their MVP spot so we can choose the player who we believe can score the most raw points at that slot. All players in consideration at the MVP position can also be used in the Flex player pool.

MVP: Nick Chubb ($13,000), Baker Mayfield ($15,000), Le’veon Bell ($15,500), Odell Beckham Jr. ($14,000)

Flex: Trevor Siemian ($12,500), Demaryius Thomas ($6500), Jarvis Landry ($12,500), Austin Seibert ($8,500), Sam Ficken ($9,000), David Njoku ($10,500), and Jamison Crowder ($12,000).

This report will provide plays for the NFL DFS Monday Night Football slate. I will break down changes each team has made during the off-season and provide recommended plays for each game.

MNF DFS Podcast with the King and Dan Wehr: Listen Below

Houston Texas vs. New Orleans Saints

O/U: 51.5 (NOS -6.5)

NFL DFS Team: Houston Texans

The Texans were one of the best rushing teams in the league last season according to team rankings, averaging 125 yards per game. They’ve added a few pieces here in the offseason through the draft, specifically at their weakest positon, left tackle (Laremy Tunsil). The Texans fell to the middle of the pack in terms of passing efficiency last season and I think injuries to Will Fuller, Deshaun Watson, and ineffective running by Lamar Miller were big contributors.

Watson took more hits than any QB in the league in 2018 so it was clear where they needed to make a change. By adding bulldog running back Duke Johnson and solidifying their offensive line they have a well rounded offense that can excel in the passing game if they can give Watson the time he needs to throw against a so-so New Orleans secondary (266 YPG allowed in 2018).

NFL DFS Team: New Orleans Saints

The Saints are coming fresh off of a heartbreak loss in the postseason after a much criticized no call on an obvious pass interference call against the Rams. I have to imagine this team comes in firing on all cylinders with aspirations of getting back into the postseason as a top seeded team. They lost a few pieces in the offseason, Mark Ingram being one of the biggest in free agency. The Saints replaced him with journeyman RB Latavius Murray, who should see a good bit of work in the red zone.

The Saints were a Top 10 team in terms of rushing and passing offense in 2018 and I don’t expect much to change this season. With no Ingram and Murray handling some of the workload, I still expect Alvin Kamara to see a massive snap share and should be considered on a week to week basis. Let’s not forget about sure handed receiver Michael Thomas, who reeled in 95% of catchable balls thrown his way. The Saints have lost the last five of their season openers.

NFL DFS Plays to consider:
  1. Michael Thomas WR ($8500 FD|$7800 DK)
  2. Deandre Hopkins WR ($9000 FD|$8000 DK)
  3. Will Fuller WR ($6100 FD|$5300 DK)
  4. Duke Johnson Jr. RB ($6500 FD|$6000 DK)
  5. Alvin Kamra RB ($9000 FD|$8500 DK)
  6. (Punt Play) Latavius Murray ($6000 FD|$4100 DK)
  7. Deshaun Watson QB ($8600 FD|$6800 DK)
  8. (Punt play) Kenny Stills WR ($5200 FD|$3900 FD)
  9. (Punt Play) Tedd Ginn Jr. WR ($5000 FD|$4100 DK)

Denver Broncos vs. Oakland Raiders

O/U: 43.5 (DEN -2)

NFL DFS Team: Denver Broncos

The Broncos have struggled with finding a QB since the departure of Peyton Manning and turn to the services of Joe Flacco for the 2019 season. Flacco, once an MVP caliber QB for the Ravens, has struggled to find consistent footing in the offense since his miraculous run in the 2012 postseason. There was a lot of praise for Flacco out of Broncos off-season camps, citing his ability to read the defense and vertically stretch the field (but we already knew that). Philip Lindsay is coming off of surgery but is at full health. Royce Freeman is also back to 100% health and saw a majority of the action in the preseason with Lindsay in recovery. I believe we see a more balanced snap share in the back field between the two this season and I tend favor Freeman in this first game just due to the fact that Lindsay did not see a lot of work and should be eased back into the offense.

Not much should change for the Denver defense, they still have that formidable defensive line and a solid core of LBs to complement them, although they still allowed 120 rushing yards per game last season. The Broncos also added much needed versatility to their secondary, one of the weakest spots in their defense last year. They allowed 245 yards per game through the air on average last season.

NFL DFS Team: Oakland Raiders

What a disastrous last few weeks for the Raiders. With the untimely departure of Antonio Brown it leaves a huge hole in one of their weakest positions on offense. The only receiver worth noting on this offense, Tyrell Williams, draws a tough matchup against Isaac Yiadom. One noteworthy change to the Raiders is their improvement at the offensive line positions.

The defense isn’t very appealing and tried to make up for their woes through the 2019 draft. The defensive performance will be determined by their rookie draft picks (Two edge rushers, and one safety in the first two rounds). If these guys can plug and play I think the Raiders could have a bright spot on the defense. Another player to keep an eye on for the Raiders is highly touted rookie RB Josh Jacobs. He comes into tonight’s slate as a top value play and although the Raiders are not a run first offense, I believe they turn to Jacobs to pick up the slack on offense.

NFL DFS Plays to consider
  1. Joe Flacco QB ($7000 FD|$5100 DK)
  2. Josh Jacobs RB ($6800 FD|$5000 DK)
  3. Royce Freeman RB ($5900 FD|$4300 DK)
  4. Emmanuel Sanders WR ($5700 FD|$5500 DK)
  5. Darren Waller TE ($5400 FD|$3400 DK)
  6. Courtland Sutton WR ($4900 FD|$4500 DK)
Defense

Flip a coin between the Raiders or Broncos. I favor the Broncos just due to all the questions surrounding the offense right now.

  1. Denver Broncos DST ($4800 FD|$3500 DK)
  2. Oakland Raiders DST ($3800 FD|$2300 DK)
