NFL DFS Week 3 DraftKings Podcast with Pat Mayo
Pat Mayo (@thePME) of The FNTSY Sports Network, RotoeXperts, and DailyRoto stops by The Fantasy Coach Podcast to talk about NFL DFS Week 3 for DraftKings. I promise we talk some strategy after catching up and exchanging the finer points on blogging and tagging posts. (I kid you not!) After talking about this week’s hot-button issues like the NCAA going after college athletes for playing DFS we delve into the week 3 slate.
First we discuss Thursday Night’s game between the Washington Redskins and the New York Giants and discuss if we want any exposure to the game or if we should play the Thursday start slate but fade the match up. Kirk Cousins, Jordan Reed, Pierre Garcon, Matt Jones and Odell Beckham Jr. are discussed.
We then talk about paying up for Defense this week and how to go about setting your lineup if you are going to take Seattle at home against the Bears.
We discuss paying up for RBs this week versus taking low priced options. Adrian Peterson, Marshawn Lynch, and Jamaal Charles are discussed versus the lower priced James Starks, Danny Woodhead, TJ Yeldon and Latavious Murray.
We touch on the big DFS game of the week as the Pittsburgh Steelers are visiting the St. Louis Rams. Players discussed include, Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown, Le’Veon Bell, Nick Foles and Todd Gurley.
We talk about highly volatile tournament plays such as Torrey Smith and Ted Ginn Jr.
We discuss bankroll management. Differentiating between building a tournament lineup versus a cash game lineup and discuss how hard it can be to stay on course.
