Glock’s NFL Lineup Review | Week 3

What is up everybody! This is a new article we are introducing this year which will review my main GPP/Single Entry team that I played over the weekend. I’ll do my best to explain why I played who I played, what I would have changed, and the results that came with it. The aim is to have this released every Tuesday and the hope is that the article can help provide you some valuable insight which can help improve your process when playing NFL DFS.

I always like writing review type of articles too since it forces me to be self-critical about my play and helps improves my process in turn. I definitely recommend reviewing your lineups after every weekend as well, I can guarantee it will make you a better player.

If you are familiar with my NBA Year In Review article from last year, I am not a high stakes player whatsoever and tend to play SE contests which are at the $100 price point and under. Whether you are a high stakes or low stakes player, you should be able to take tidbits and apply it to all levels of play. For the purposes of this article, I’ll be reviewing the ownership from the $50 NFL $300K Red Zone [$50K to 1st, Single Entry] contest. Lets dive in!

THE LINEUP

Boom! We finally did it, a min cash! I can’t lie I was getting a bit nervous about trying to put together a winning week for you all and not go 0-17 for the entire year haha! Instead of going summary form for this week, I’ll break it down player by player and give my reasonings for each play. Whichever format you all like better, let me know and I can do that going forward.

CJ Stroud – The Texans have been operating at one of the highest tempos in the league to start the year and HOU/JAX was an environment I liked the most if I wanted to get away from the Cousins/Herbert primary stacks. Also very cheap tag to help jam in studs which we’ll cover below

Kenneth Walker – No Bryce Young for the opposing team, Seattle was a favorite at home. KW3 in theory should have a favorable script and was up against a CAR team who has given up 100+ on the ground each week of the season so far

Travis Etienne – My favorite run back option from my primary stack of HOU due to the Texan’s poor run defense. Colts ran all over them the week previous and ETN’s usage has been amazing to start the season

Keenan Allen – I didn’t get primary exposure to LAC/MIN through my QB so I definitely wanted to get mini-correlation somehow. Keenan was a clear #1 option for me from LAC if I could get the salary over Mike Williams who was higher owned

Nico Collins – Was between Collins or Robert Woods as my 2nd WR to pair with Stroud. Collins to me is a clear upside play while Woods is more of a safe/floor play

Tank Dell – Too cheap of chalk to pass up, especially if I am pairing him with my QB. Was the guy I wanted to pair most with Stroud as he gives the best combination of salary savings and upside

Cole Turner – No Logan Thomas so step in unowned Cole Turner who was priced right under chalk Durham Smythe. Actually led the team in targets with 7 and had a couple red zone targets too so could’ve been a massive day

Justin Jefferson – I mentioned LAC/MIN mini-correlation earlier so what better way than to get it with the WR1s from both squads?

Jets DST – Didn’t think they’d end up being the chalkiest defense on the slate to be honest but I thought they had upside against a Patriots squad I don’t fully believe in with Mac Jones behind center

THE RESULTS

I started the year 0-2 so it feels good to come out with a min-cash in all contests especially without having the Miami RB duo of Raheem Mostert (45.2 FPTs at 15.12%) and De’Von Achane (54.3 FPTs at 0.22%). I liked Joshua Kelley for a bounce back performance but preferred the other 2 RBs I played and the Keenan Allen correlation more. He was the 2nd highest owned player in the 50$ SE at 32.47% so was fortunate to dodge that.

If I knew the Jets DST were going to be the chalkiest DST on the slate, no way I would’ve played them and pivoted elsewhere. Nico Collins was disappointing but I’m always a guy that double stacks my QB unless my QB has true rushing upside like Hurts/Lamar. Regardless, it was a week in green so we move forward and go for the shipper next week!
