Featuring: Renee Miller (@ReneeMiller01)

About My GuestRenee Miller:  

Renee Miller, Ph.D. is a neuroscientist at the University of Rochester. She is an avid fantasy player, participating in multiple season long NFL, NBA, and MLB leagues. Her first love is Daily Fantasy Sports, which she writes about at RotoWorld, Pro Football Focus Fantasy, Fantasy Insiders, RotoWire, and The Fake Football. She occasionally contributes articles for season long fantasy football to RotoViz. Her book, Cognitive Bias in Fantasy Sports: Is your brain sabotaging your team? combines her  knowledge of neuroscience with her love of fantasy sports. It will give you new insight into how you approach fantasy decisions and help you to make the most logical and rationale choices.

Episode Summary:  Renee and I talk about the DFS slate for week one of the NFL season across DraftKings and Fanduel.  We discuss how the vagaries of week one of the first week of the NFL change the way we normally approach setting up our lineups.  We specifically talk about Peyton Manning, Julius Thomas, Frank Gore, Shaun Hill, LeSean McCoy, Alshon Jeffrey, Michael Floyd, Michael Crabtree and Rob Gronkowski.
