NFL Daily Fantasy Football: Ranking The Top 10 Toughest WRs

 

2020-21 NFL Computer Predictions and Rankings Fantasy Football Strategy Uncategorized  toughest receivers ranking football fantasy daily  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.

Ouch! 3 NFL Coaches on the Hot Seat!

2020-21 NFL Computer Predictions and Rankings Coaches Uncategorized  coaches  Marvin Lewis-Cincinnati Bengals: He was once voted the AP Coach of the Year in 2009, and has a 112-92-2 career record, but he has never won a playoff game. Last year the Bengals had the playoff game against the Steelers won but then two critical 15 yard penalties allowed the Steelers to get into field goal range and win the game. The penalties sum up Lewis’ career, he takes chances on talented but hot-headed and reckless players and it came back to cost him bigtime. The Bengals have all the talent to seriously compete for a super bowl but they must stop shooting themselves in the foot and disappointing in crunch time. If they cannot win a playoff game this postseason, Lewis will be gone.
Chuck Pagano-Indianapolis Colts: Pagano has a 41-23 record with the Colts and is 3-3 in the playoffs, but he has still disappointed and the talent he has on his roster continues to underachieve. He has a franchise QB in Andrew Luck, and although I have always said Luck is highly overrated and a mere system QB at best, he has no OL to keep him healthy. The decisions by Pagano and his staff have hindered the Colts ability to have success. They have not addressed the OL and two years ago they drafted WR Phillip Dorsett when they already had a speed burner in T.Y. Hilton. He also has perhaps the dumbest playcall ever on his record, when he went for the suicidal fake punt against the New England Patriots. The Colts have gotten away with success against a very bad AFC South division, but it has improved tremendously and Pagano must find ways to sustain success and keep Luck healthy if he wants to keep his job.
Jason Garrett-Dallas Cowboys: Garrett has found a way to keep his job this long, but he must have the Cowboys make a deep playoff run in order to save himself this year. The Cowboys have one of the most talented offensive rosters in football, but they have not been able to stay healthy. They drafted RB Ezekiel Elliott to take pressure off an aging QB in Tony Romo and hope he can produce what DeMarco Murray did in 2014, when he led the league in rushing behind that great OL. The Cowboys problem is that they rely so heavily on a few players and if they get hurt, like WR Dez Bryant and Romo did last year, they have no depth to in place to compete. The defense is also a mess and the Cowboys have not done anything to fix it. Garrett must hope his stars stay healthy and that the Cowboys can finish in the 4th quarter, which is not something they are good at, as they must win shootouts just to compete. If the Cowboys miss the playoffs, it will be because of Garrett’s coaching flaws and personnel decisions and he will be gone.

Cardale Jones: Boom or Bust? It Depends on Him!

2020-21 NFL Computer Predictions and Rankings Quarterbacks Uncategorized  jones depends cardale  Former Ohio State QB Cardale Jones was one of the most polarizing draft prospects in recent memory. In 2014 when starters Braxton Miller and J.T. Barrett went down with injuries, he led the Buckeyes to three straight post-season wins en route to a national championship. His impressive performances against Wisconsin, Alabama and Oregon led some scouts to believe he should leave school early as he possessed all the physical traits of a QB. Jones is 6′ 5″ and 250 pounds, with a pure rocket for an arm. He is tough to bring down with one defender and he can keep plays alive with his feet. It’s obvious why scouts were intrigued by him, but Jones is raw and has immaturity issues. Ohio State was able to maximize his strengths and minimize his flaws during their 3 game championship run. They ran the ball a combined 76 times with RB Ezekiel Elliott for 696 yards and 8 TDs. Jones was asked only to launch it deep to WR Devin Smith when he was matched up one on one, and he used his legs to convert third downs. Ohio State did not ask him to read and dissect defenses, because as 2015 proved, he struggled with it. He started the season as the Buckeyes QB but struggled with reading defenses and not turning the ball over as he threw 8 TDs but 5 INTs.

I believe Urban Meyer started Jones because of his upside, and how his big frame makes it very difficult for defenders to bring him down. This was evident in the season opener at Virginia Tech when Bud Foster sent lots of blitzes and about 3 or 4 times the Hokies defenders had Jones wrapped up but they could not bring him down for the sack. He was eventually replaced by J.T Barrett because of his immaturity and inability to protect the football. When Jones is forced to read defenses and make decisions, and cannot just chuck it deep against man coverage like last season, he struggles. He is a project for the Buffalo Bills and should sit the bench for a few years to develop, especially his short and intermediate accuracy and timing. I was surprised the Bills drafted Jones after their misfortunes with former 1st round pick E.J. Manual, who is another big framed QB with a strong arm but struggled with accuracy and turnovers. As a QB myself, I believe the most important physical tool of a QB is accuracy, and getting the ball out on time and on target. Jones needs to improve his accuracy and needs to mature a lot before he can become a starter in the NFL. Cardale Jones has a lot of upside and a cannon for an arm, but the Bills will need to be patient and really develop him into a guy who is comfortable reading defenses and throws the ball accurately with minimal turnovers. He is a major project, and it will be his maturity and willingness to sit and develop that will ultimately dictate his future in the NFL.

Top Waiver Wire Pickups

2020-21 NFL Computer Predictions and Rankings Fantasy Football Strategy Player News Uncategorized  waiver top waivers top waiver wire pick ups nfl 2019 pickups how to get into sport betting best waiver wire picks
2020-21 NFL Computer Predictions and Rankings Fantasy Football Strategy Player News Uncategorized  waiver top waivers top waiver wire pick ups nfl 2019 pickups how to get into sport betting best waiver wire picks

The season is still in its early days, so people might not still have their routine for waiver wire down just yet. In fact, some might be wondering when will the waivers clear in their ESPN and Yahoo leagues. But, even if the time is still not exactly known, aside from usually being in the period between 4 and 5 a.m., on Wednesday, there will be new players on the roster. Everyone playing the game wants them to be the best alternatives so for NFL betting for week 3 or those into fantasy football, the choice will be between J.J. Nelson, Samaje Perine, Chris Carson, Rashard Higgins and many others. Injuries created quite a commotion in the domain of the fantasy world during the previous week, but this also creates new opportunities which can be taken by anyone.

Even in those cases where players might not be good enough to have a waiver claim merit, a shrewd move would be to pick them up down the same waiver wire. This possibility is also related to the size of the fantasy league, but there still will be many opportunities to pick up some real gems from the free agent list. Here is a breakdown of the top potential options and opportunities, along with the Week 3 matchups. However, it is important to mention that only players that are owned in less than 50% of the Yahoo leagues will be taken into consideration.

Rashard Higgins, Browns, WR

Corey Coleman has a broken hand and Kenny Britt is not up to the task so the catcher for the Cleveland is Higgins. He is a second-year out of Colorado State and so far managed to get 11 targets meant for the 95 yards. So far, not much is known about him aside from the current successes. Cleveland is going to have a game with Colts really soon and Higgins is likely to be in a range of lineup as their WR3, which makes the same receiver a potential keeper.

J.J. Nelson, Cardinals, WR

Nelson has two TDs in as many weeks and is close to having his third. In Week 2 he managed to attain 120 yards and seems to be the No. 2 for his team, while it is also true he managed to finish the last year in great shape. Right now, his Week 1 TD occurred in garbage time and he was out-targeted last week by John Brown. Still, he has a lot of big-play ability and as long as the team is missing John Brown he will be a good alternative for a seven or more targets every game.

Chris Carson, Seahawks, RB

The era of Thomas Rawls and Eddie Lacy as a shared No. 1 did not last long in Seattle and now Carson seems like the best guy in the backfield. The team’s coach Pete Carroll he wants to see more of Carson and this occurred on Sunday when the rookie ran 93 yards against the Oklahoma State. Now, chances are that his transition will not be this clean, being that Rawls is still involved. But, in spite of this, Carson is more than worth picking up.

Samaje Perine, Redskins, RB

There were no fractured ribs for Rob Kelley in Week 2 and more will be known by Week 3 about his status. But, the Redskin is playing on Sunday night and Perine is going to be an absolute must for the team. The rookie did not really impress during the last week with his run for 67 yards, but there was no fumble, which was his big problem in the pre-season.

Evan Engram, Giants, TE

With 4 out of 7 targets for 49 yards zone caught on Monday night, Engram is clearly going to be a big part of the offensive Giant’s line. This is especially true for the red zone and with the entire Giant’s injuries in Week 2 which took out Rob Gronkowski, Greg Olsen, Jimmy Graham, Tyler Eifert, and Jordan Reed, there are enough chances for him. Also, he does not have a stiff competition which makes him a good candidate for the potential TE1.

OMG! NFL Wagering and College Football Wagering are Not The Same!

2020-21 NFL Computer Predictions and Rankings Sports Betting Uncategorized  wagering football college

 

There are at least a half-dozen factors that separate college football betting from NFL betting. For starters, action on college football is much more likely to come from sophisticated bettors, known as “sharps” or “wiseguys”, who often possess some insight or kernel of information that may provide them with an edge against the house. Experienced bet takers know not to treat heavy activity on an obscure game, such as East Carolina versus Wake Forest, as casually as they might deal with increased wagering interest on a marquee NFL game such as a Redskins-Cowboys confrontation. For that reason, bookmakers usually move college football betting lines quickly, often one full point at a time. In general, it takes more money to move an NFL betting line(for example, NFL betting at Skybook ) and when it is moved, usually it is by only half a point.

Largely because of a lack of proficiency in the kicking game, key numbers such as 3, 4, 6, 7, 10, 13 and 14 are not nearly as sacrosanct in college football betting as they are in the NFL. College football games just do not fall on those numbers as often as they do in NFL contests.

We may never again see a three-touchdown favorite in the NFL but lines of -30, -40, or even -50 are not that uncommon in the college gridiron game. Oddsmakers and bookmakers also find college totals more difficult to gauge because some coaches try to impress those who have a vote in the polls by running up the score. Others, feel that a third-string player’s reward for practicing all week is to get to play in a blowout. It’s just these types of unique uncertainties that compel bookmakers to shift college “over/under” numbers more quickly than they move NFL totals.

It’s also the nature of college football that personnel change every year. This makes early season evaluation more difficult and leads bet takers to move lines and totals more quickly, especially in September and early October when the season is still young. There is personnel movement in the NFL too, of course, but mostly it involves players of established ability moving from team to team. In college football, you’re always dealing with fresh faces.

By collective bargaining agreement, each week, the NFL publishes a comprehensive list of injured players and their status. Sure, there are mistakes and abuses and players who have been listed as “doubtful” have played while those regarded as “probable” have not but overall, the list is accurate. On the other hand, colleges are under no obligation to announce the status of injured or disciplined football players. This vagueness over availability sometimes can create opportunities in college football betting. Consequently, bookmakers are wary if too much wagering attention is paid to one team.

When it comes to parlay card numbers, you are much more apt to see a slight gap between those prices printed on cards and those posted on the board in the NFL than you are in college football. The key element is that bookmakers can more accurately predict the public inclination for an NFL game than they can for a college football game. It’s not unusual then for traditionally popular team such as Dallas or a “hot” team such as Oakland, to be listed as a 7 1/2-point favorite on a parlay card but just a 6 1/2 or 7-point choice on the board. Through experience, bookmakers know that “public” teams such as the Cowboys, as well as “now” teams such as the Raiders, will be more aggressively played on parlay cards than they are straight up.

Clearly, understanding the differences between college football betting and NFL betting is essential to winning.

DIFFERENCES BETWEEN COLLEGE AND PRO FOOTBALL:

College Football:

‘Wiseguys’ frequently supply the action

College football betting lines often are moved by a full point at a time

Key numbers are not as important

Personnel changes can make early season analysis difficult

Information on injuries is not always accessible

There’s usually not a disparity between parlay card and board numbers

NFL:

Money from public is prevalent

Betting lines are usually moved by a half-point at a time

Key numbers are VERY important

Personnel changes are less volatile and easier to evaluate

Information on injuries usually is accessible

Parlay card numbers sometimes are intentionally different than prices on the board.
