Glock’s NFL Lineup Review | Week 5

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 $250K Red Zone [$50K to 1st, Single Entry] contest. Lets dive in!

THE LINEUP

Felt pretty good going into the PM games as I had Marquise Brown and Tyler Boyd left as a mini-correlation. Little did I know that it was gonna be a Ja’Marr Chase slate, so I held onto the min cash for dear life. Below are my thoughts behind each play of my lineup this past weekend:

Tua Tagovailoa – If you read my Playbooks, I am a big fan of the Miami offense in general and will stack them as much as I can this year. The Giants defense is nothing to fear either. If it weren’t for a couple of silly INTs, Miami could’ve put up an even bigger number

David Montgomery – My #1 priority play of the week, no matter how high owned he would be. No ASB and Gibbs so all signs were pointed towards a massive role for DMont as well as a positive game script

De’Von Achane – I knew Achane would be chalky but likely as a one-off play. I paired him with Tua in hopes of a more unconventional stack where I pair my QB with my RB and a pass catcher

Tyler Boyd – My opto was spitting Josh Reynolds here but I really didn’t want to play 3 Lions without a Panther bring back or Jared Goff so I opted for Boyd once Higgins was ruled out

Tyreek Hill – Always the clear correlation with Tua when I have the salary. Has slate breaking upside and not to mention, wants to be a porn star post his NFL career. How can I fade that?

Wan’Dale Robinson – My cheap bring back option to my MIA stack, doesn’t need much at the 3K minimum and in the SEA game, Danny Dimes was just dumping it off to him in the slot. Thought more of that would be in play with how bad the NYG offensive line is

Sam LaPorta – With DET not having Amon-Ra St. Brown, LaPorta in my opinion essentially became WR1 even though he is a tight end. The TE position has been horribly inconsistent to start the year apart from LaPorta so he was one of my priority plays after DMont

Marquise Brown – CIN/ARI was another game environment I thought had potential for a lot of points and I was able to get a mini-correlation in the late games with Brown/Boyd

Dolphins DST – Despite the high ownership percentages throughout my lineup, playing Dolphins DST with a NYG player was another effort in making a unique lineup. Thought Dolphins DST had really high upside as well after seeing how bad NYG’s line was vs SEA

THE RESULTS

As I mentioned earlier, I felt really good about my lineup heading into the later games. If Joe Burrow looked as bad as he did Weeks 1 through 4, who knows what kind of day it would’ve been. Instead, he and Chase mega nuked with decent ownership which caused me to hang onto the min-cash.

I think the biggest thing you can takeaway with my team this weekend is that despite the chalkiness, my lineup was unique in all of the contests I played in, including the large field milly maker. It is not about how owned a single player is in your lineup, but how that play incorporates to the rest of your lineup (It’s not about WHO you play, but HOW you play them). Unconventional things that the field doesn’t like to do such as pairing a QB with a RB or playing a DST plus an opposing player are all things that can help make you unique.

Always happy to answer any questions you may have for me, just reach out in discord. Our official cash tally is up to 2-3, we aim to get to .500 this coming weekend with more money on the horizon!
