Week 12 DFS Sleepers by Chol Souders and John Burke
Last week was a very profitable week for us here at SportsWave. We cashed in mostly on the backs of the combo of Josh Allen and John Brown that JB recommended. Nick Foles did exactly what we needed him to do on his return to action with a 2 TD game and almost 300 yards passing at a very low ownership level. Josh Jacobs is becoming a very reliable beast in the running game and Joe Mixon even decided to show up for once in his NFL career. Debo Samuel was big time for us and in the lineups that we decided to do 49ers stacks we were rewarded with all of wine and women that we could as for!!!!(Not really....we actually only brought home 10x winnings but that is just as good). We did have some big time loser picks but hey, it happens when you are scraping the bottom of the barrel to find cheap winners. OJ Howard reminded me why I never use OJ Howard..and I never will again. The Vikings D got lit up more than Tupac in Vegas. It happens! We arent going to hit every pick but we can tell you that anything posted here are plays that we do ourselves in tournaments. Which brings me to another coaching tip: Dont go for the whale everytime!!!!! Sure, it is cool to enter into the big millionaire maker tournaments. Hell, nothing is more fun than being alive in one of them tournaments going into the 4 o'clock games and thinking where you are gonna spend all of your winnings. I am not saying to not enter. Do it! Have fun doing it! But make sure that you also enter into the lesser known tournaments. Look for tournaments that have around 1k-2k participants at a similar entry cost and the same lineup that finshes in 3000 place in the millionaire maker will likely win this smaller tournament. You wont win a million $$$ but you will be able to take home a decent amount this way. Ex.) I entered a 49ers stacked lineup in a $12 entry with about 2700 patricipants and finished in 15th place. I won $150. Not a bad ROI!
The type of games that you enter mean just as much as the players that you select. Enter some smaller tournaments and some 50/50 contest this week and watch how all of the sudden you go profitable. Now get out there and win some Playboys!!!!!
JB’S WEEK 12 PICKS
CAN YOU DIG IT (OTHER PLAYERS TO LOOK AT):
Baker Mayfield, Miles Sanders,DK Metcalf, Jamison Crowder and Allen Robinson all came close to making the article. They either have great matchups or are trending toward a big game. Ex.) Sanders looked great last week in first half but Philly decided not to use him in 2nd half, Robinson faces weak Giants secondary and Metcalf is going up against Eagles secondary that has been lit up all year....also in that game if you are looking for an absolute long shot that nobody else in the tournament will have you can throw a bone to JJ Arcega-Whiteside for Philly. There has been alot of talk about how the Eagles passed on Metcalf and drafted JJ this week. The top 3 Philly receivers may all be out now that Algholor has not practiced all week so JJ is going to get his chance to prove why he was drafted ahead of Metcalf with DK on the other sideline. It is an extreme longshot though so I make no promises but if there ever was a game to think that Wentz will get JJ involved or JJ will want to step up, it is this one.
VAYA CON DIOS!!!!
