Glock’s NFL Lineup Review | Week 8

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

This week I played a lot more chalk than I expected, but I definitely felt that you could make a case for said chalk and that it would be considered “good chalk”. Below are my thoughts behind each play:

Jalen Hurts – The Commanders seemingly give up a big QB performance to everyone they face so who better than Jalen Hurts to keep the trend going? Lamar Jackson was trending to be the higher owned dual-threat QB so Hurts was a lower owned pivot

Alvin Kamara – Benefactor of dump off city and is a threat both via the passing attack and ground game. NOP/IND was an environment I definitely wanted exposure to

Breece Hall – Just priced way too cheap for his big play upside. Also in a matchup versus a Giants team I do not respect whatsoever

Nico Collins – HOU/CAR was another game environment I liked and with Robert Woods out, my thought is that it would boost up Collins big time. Instead of Hurts, I was also considering Stroud double stacks (luckily I went Hurts)

Terry McLaurin – My preferred runback for my PHI stacks. Dotson would’ve been the nut here but I didn’t really need the salary relief

Josh Downs – Give me more Josh Downs until he’s over 5K! Was a nice mini-correlation with Kamara in a game environment I liked

Trey McBride – TE and DST were my last in pieces and McBride was the standout punt option as his role has grown each and every week

AJ Brown – The true WR1 of the PHI offense, no brainer to stack with Hurts

Bengals DST – Similar to the Chiefs last week, just thought Bengals DST was way too cheap for a DST that has been playing great this year. Was also leverage on chalky SF stacks

THE RESULTS

Nice little 4x week despite the chalkyness of the lineup! If I got anything else from Nico Collins, it could have been an even better day but we move forward. In my mind, I somewhat thought Terry McLaurin and Nico Collins could be steam candidates and if I knew that before hand, I probably should have pivoted to a lower 2v2 with a guy like Dotson at a cheaper tag and upgrading Collins. That is probably my one gripe about the lineup this week but regardless, green is green! See you next week!
