Fantasy Football 2022: Everything You Need To Know Before You Draft

We are well into the swing of the 2022 NFL season, as we enter week 6. Although the games began a month ago, that doesn’t mean you can’t join DFS NFL a little late. 

 

Daily Fantasy Sports is just that – daily. You may end up being a couple of points behind the other players, but you can still make strides if you know how to play the game right. Let us show you how!

 

The Three Basic Rules To Follow

These basic rules we want to give you are more like suggestions or guidance. You don’t need to follow them to play well, but if you do your chances of success will be much higher.

 

The first rule is to pick players who are on the pitch often. High-floor and high-volume players will give you a strong start to your game. This is because they will be earning points simply by joining in. These players will become the backbone of your team, constantly trickling points even if they don’t play well.

 

The second rule is to avoid players that you’re unsure of. If you’ve heard a rumor that a specific player has a weak ankle, or their practice runs have become a little sloppy, then avoid them. Trust your instincts and don’t bag a player that might let you down. We will go into more detail about injured players later but as a general rule of thumb, if you’re not sure don’t pick them.

 

The third rule you should consider is paying attention to the news surrounding your players. Health information, stat changes, and announcements from the teams. All of this data can tell you when to put your players into the reserve, when to place them back onto the field, and how to manage your team as the tide changes.

 

Keep these three things in mind as the game continues!

 

The Tight Ends You Should Consider

The first two tight ends you should consider are Travis Kelce (Kansas City Chiefs) and Mark Andrews (Baltimore Ravens). Kelce is a top player at the moment, scoring 4 touchdowns in his latest game to bring Kansas to a win, while Andrews held his own against the Cincinnati Bengals scraping their way to victory.

 

The Quarterbacks You Should Consider

When it comes to quarterbacks you may think that Tom Brady is our top pick, but depending on the coins in your pot you may not be able to afford him. Even worse, the hero seems to be going through a downward spiral.

 

Instead, we suggest aiming for Josh Allen (Buffalo Bills) and Patrick Mahomes (Kansas City Chiefs). Allen earned the award for Fantasy Player of the Year in 2020, and we hold onto the same hope for him in the current season.

 

Use The Middle Ground To Round Off Your Team

At this point you want to look at your points and how many positions you need to fill. There is no point in purchasing multiple high-end quarterbacks and backing them up with a low-end receiver. Your defenses and kickers need as much attention as the rest of your team. 

 

Ideally, you want a “sleeper”. These are players which are often overlooked, playing a lot better than they were predicted. These players are gems and should be snapped up as soon as possible.

 

The opposite of a sleeper is a busted player. These are players that are not performing to their caliber. Drop these players when you see a pattern of slipping.

 

Consider Replacement Players For Injury Risks

Rules two and three both touch on the subject of injuries. If you’re unsure of a player’s recovery you should avoid selecting them, and if you read news about an injury put the player on the bench.

 

However, you can never be sure of when an injury will strike. If you want a player on your team, but know they are prone to injuries, place them on the field early, and prepare a player to replace them when the inevitable happens. 

 

Remember The Bye Week

In the NFL, we have a term called “bye week”. Once a season, every team will have a week where they will not play. This year they are spread out between week 6 and week 14.

 

Consider when your players will be on their bye week, and replace them with active players to avoid losing points as you wait for their return. When week 14 is over, you can go back to putting your best players forward.

 

2022 Is The Year Of The Rookie

Lastly, we suggest keeping an eye on the rookies this year. Sleepers are normally rookies that haven’t had their time in the sun yet, and this season Brian Robinson is basking in the light. Robinson plays for the Washington Commanders and has started to take the role of running back away from top player Antonio Gibson.

 

Just 6 weeks ago, Robinson was shot in the leg, and now he is storming the field.

 

Summary

The NFL stats change quickly, so find your sleepers, your strong players, and your replacements and get ready to move them from bench to field in flow with the game.

 

Fantasy Football: 7 Tips and Tricks to Win Your League

 Playing fantasy football can be so much fun, and if you play it right, it can be super rewarding too. However, getting things to the point where you feel like a confident and supreme expert in fantasy football takes time and effort. 

 

DFS NFL is going to take you some time to get your head around, but learning some tips and tricks can help you along and make it a little easier for you as you start. 

 

If you are a fan of the NFL and you want to get even more involved fantasy football is definitely the way to go. So, here is how…

 

#1. Know The Positions Each Team Is Going To Be Made Of

 

Websites for DFS NFL will usually use a defaulted system and thus a default lineup. You start with a single quarterback, 2 running backs, 1 tight end, 1 kicker, 2 wide receivers, and 1 team defense. 

 

However, before you draft, check the settings for each team, which is even more important if you are doing it live. You can use the same formula if you want, or alter it slightly, but doing so will affect the lineup. 

 

You need to ensure you have enough players in every position for the bye weeks as well.

 

#2. Know The Bye Weeks Of Potential Drafts

 

Speaking of bye weeks. The ones that will affect you the most will be your quarterback bye weeks. You should probably draft 2, and make sure that these two quarterbacks do not have the same bye weeks. 

 

If they do, you might have to pick up a quarterback on the waiver wire to keep you covered. You should also consider the running backs and wide receivers as well.

 

#3. Plan Out How You Want To Draft

 

Planning ahead is always important, but before you draft you need a plan. You want to list exactly how many players you need for each position. 

 

Unless you have the first pick of the draft you do not need to worry too much about who you pick, instead focus on having the right amount of players. 

 

#4. Understand How To Pre-Rank Players Pre-Draft

 

If you had Larry Johnson as no.1 on your pre-ranked list, it won’t help you a great deal if he gets injured in the final game of preseason and ends up out of the game for the season. 

 

You want to stay up to date on how a player is doing before you draft. 

 

If you know the sequence before you draft, you will have a better idea of who is available before it is your turn to pick. There will only be a few players who are automatically top 5 of course. 

 

If you do draft later on, you want to know who the good 2nd tier players are from who is available.

 

#5. Be Aware Of Who Is On The Waiver Wire

 

Before and after the season starts, you should always keep a close eye on the waiver wire. Some people can get super lucky when another team drops a great player just because of a bad week or two. 

 

On the other side of things, you should be wary of dropping players for the same reason. Always be hot on the waiver wire, you can always pick up a player and pop them in the DL slot, you can carry that and another player. 

 

You can also pick up good players who may have had injuries the year prior. They may usually be ranked low, and if no one else is paying attention you might get lucky and be able to get a great player just because no one else is paying much attention.

 

#6. Know The Playoff Schedule

 

It is always good practice to know the schedule, your goal is to get to the playoffs after all. The playoffs will typically occur during weeks 15 through 17. 

 

Many of us win through the regular season and end up losing in the playoffs. So, always be aware of the schedule, you may look at the waiver and schedule players. Look at the schedule at the end of the year to see if there are any teams he may be on. 

 

You could end up picking some brilliant players if you pay attention to the end of the year, not just the regular season. Remember, you are not just aiming for the regular season, but the playoffs too! 

 

#7. Draft Running Backs That Catch The Most

 

Finally, do not forget the importance of a good running back. A good running back will gain you plenty of yards and touchdowns. An even greater running back will gain touchdowns and receiving yards for you. 

 

As you draft, look for running backs that catch most of their passes. Look at the players with high stats, know the names of some of the best, make a list of many 20, at least a couple of those should be available, or at least one of them. 

 

Note all the good running backs, while everyone else is focused elsewhere, swipe up the good stuff!

[Fanduel] How Fantasy Football Became Big Business

 The story of Fantasy Football and how the world fell in love with it

If you have never played fantasy football before then you are missing out on something special. Fantasy football is the perfect way to make new friends at work, make watching football more exciting, and get the thrill of winning every week (even if your team is having a bad season).

If you’re a sports lover like us then it probably feels like fantasy football appeared overnight out of nowhere. But now we can’t imagine life without it. However, you may be shocked to learn that fantasy football was actually invented in 1962! And that it was created by Oakland Raiders fans living in New York…

Keep on reading to discover the history of fantasy football.

What is fantasy football?

Fantasy Football is a stats based gambling game. That can be played amongst a group of friends, colleagues, or online. The point tracking can be done by hand or you can use a website to work out and track everything for you.

A group of people agrees to create a league together. Each person drafts together a team from existing players in the NFL that year. They usually make a roster of 52 players (like the real NFL teams do). These players can be taken from any team in the league.

Each person puts forward a weekly team. The performance of each player is scored depending on how well they performed their role. These individual scores are added up and a team score is given. Over the season, all the weekly scores are added up and the person with the most points at the end of the season wins.

Some fantasy sports systems can be quite simple – like done on the number of points scored by a player. However, in football, not all players are given a chance to score. So each player can gain points in fantasy football for actions related to their position – for example, they may get points for an interception or a sack.

This system makes the choice of picking players a little more challenging. Putting together a really good defensive team could rack you up a lot of points. Each choice becomes much more important with this kind of system and we love it!

History of fantasy football

We challenge you to guess the original name of fantasy football…

Did any of you guess Greater Oakland Professional Pigskin Prognosticators League? No, we thought not.

We can date the first fantasy football league back to the Greater Oakland Professional Pigskin Prognosticators League in 1962. It was created by a group of Oakland Raiders fans who were staying in a New York hotel and were trying to kill some time.

The game was very similar to what we know now. Each person would create their own fantasy NFL franchise based on the current NFL teams at the time. They would then be awarded points based on the success of their players.

The game is believed to have caught on by word of mouth.

In the following decade, a series of companies attempted to monetize the idea in the form of fantasy baseball. There were board games and trading cards that tried to recreate the system. None of this really caught on until the late 1990s when the internet became readily available.

Once the internet was up and running, it wasn’t long before people were making websites that would run people’s fantasy football leagues for them. The players would simply have to enter their team sheets and everything else would be done by the website. This prevented one member of the group from having to go through all the match statistics and adding up the scores.

The idea took off quickly and by 2010 the online fantasy sports business was making over $1 billion dollars every year. Some sportsbooks even began to offer payouts for the winning teams.

Fantasy sports started with football in America but it has spread around the world and into many different sports. It is particularly popular in Australia and the United Kingdom. If you have never played fantasy football before you need to correct that right now!

LEGALITY!

Wagering in sports is growing in popularity and is now legal in many parts of the U.S., which means more than one-third of Americans can participate without even having to leave their homes. It’s critical that those who choose to engage in it know the pertinent federal and local laws and, most importantly, do it responsibly.

NFL Daily Fantasy Football: Ranking The Top 10 Toughest WRs

 

 As the National Football League’s newest season starts in less than ten days from now, your favorite bookies have also begun offering Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) football. The DFS football games allow you to earn a huge amount of money as long as you strategize in creating a powerful team composed of the current NFL players.

Aside from the quarterbacks, flex, running back, and tight end, you also need to pick the best wide receivers to create a strong DFS football roster. Wide receivers play the most important role in the offensive side. The WR needs to have the fastest speed since they are responsible for passing and catching the ball to make a goal.

While the NFL is fast approaching, you can take part in many DFS football plays while cheering for your favorite players in the field. To get you guided in forming a winning lineup, here are the current DFS NFL projections of the top ten wide receivers you can pick.

Julio Jones

Julio Jones is topping the DFS football projection today for the best receivers to pick. He is one of the highest-graded WR’s in today’s football generation. In the last five years, Jones has produced a 15-yard gain around 225 receptions. Besides that, he is the starting wide receiver for the Atlanta Falcons since he joined in 2011.

Michael Thomas

Earning around 90.0 receiving grade in the last four seasons, Michael Thomas is another wide receiver to consider in your next DFS plays. He has joined the New Orleans Saints to portray the same position in the field. Like Julio Jones, Thomas is also one of the WR’s who has the highest grade in the said position.

DeAndre Hopkins

The Arizona Cardinals had traded DeAndre Hopkins in the NFL Draft as their new wide receiver. Hopkins is the only WR who produced the highest grade in single coverage, which happened in 2017 when he’s still with the Houston Texans. Apart from that, he also has impressive ball skills, where he recorded 58 balls inside the yard on the sideline.

Tyreek Hill

The defending champions, Kansas City Chiefs, wouldn’t win the Super Bowl LIV if Tyreek Hill didn’t contribute much in the receiving department. In your DFS football plays, there should be no reason not to include Hill in your lineup. Looking into his records, this player made 20-yard targets with 1,964 deep yards.

Chris Godwin

One of the NFL wide receivers who became part of the elite achievers in 2019 is Chris Godwin. He joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2017 as the starting WR, who recently accomplished a 90.7 receiving rate. In the last season, he caught 51.2 in all his targets, which was rated as the third-best performance in the whole NFL season.

Davante Adams

This Fresno State alumnus joined the Green Bay Packers as a wide receiver in 2014. Since then, he is known as one of the toughest route-runners, where he tallied 27 catches within a single coverage during the 2018 season. Today, he is boosting his double move tactics to increase in wide receiving skills.

Mike Evans

With an impressive football record, Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Mike Evans is ranked as the fourth-best NFL wide receivers today. His football fantasy odds look attractive, so don’t forget to consider him in your current roster. In 2017, Evans recorded 37 catches, which came out in a ten yard downfield, making him the leader in all NFL WR’s.

Odell Beckham Jr.

Odell Beckham Jr.’s performance with the Cleveland Browns last year was a bit underwhelming. It’s expected as he played as a rookie and adjusted to how Baker Mayfield performs inside the field. Although he didn’t have a quite impressive performance, he still managed to set an impressive score as a rookie and improved his upcoming plays.

Amari Cooper

Copper arrived in Dallas Cowboys during the 2018 mid-seasons. Upon his arrival, he impacted the receiving department right away, where he ranked the ninth on the best-receiving grade. Today, the Dallas Cowboys ranked 4th among the 32 teams in the receiving division, and Cooper was the guy who contributed to this achievement.

Keenan Allen

Completing the list of today’s DFS football best wide receiver projection is Keenan Allen. Since he joined the Los Angeles Chargers in 2013 as the wide receiver, Allen didn’t make a slip in making his records impressive. In 2017, he made an open separation in a single coverage within 48 targets. With this, he was considered a guy to tap whenever the Chargers need to hustle in an emergency situation.

Takeaway

Forming a successful DFS football lineup is quite challenging. You need to get the best players in the field to make sure that your team can win. Choosing the best performing wide receiver has the same importance as picking the key positions. Make sure to consider the ten names mentioned above to fulfill a winning DFS football dream team.
