These charts will be updated throughout the week, so check back as we detail and dissect the movement.
owboys/Chargers, it was not a good week for you. It is a fascinating study on how the DFS hive-mind will fixate on a particular game as a can't miss. Even when there are plenty of other just as viable options on the table. Then a FOMO sets in, and it feels like if you don't stack up that game or at least get pieces of it, you'll kick yourself when the chalk hits.
team matchplay competition. Last time around, Europe dominated the United States at Le Golf National, but the biennial competition was postponed for a year because of the Covid-19 epidemic in 2020. Eight of the world's top ten players are on Steve Stricker's 12-man team, including several players who have recently won major tournaments or on the PGA Tour. Let’s break the team down and delve into their strengths and weaknesses.
It's officially Ryder Cup week, and I'm ecstatic. So happy that the typically biennial competition may be competed again after a one-year hiatus — and with thousands of delighted fans littering the gallery in all their patriotic glory. So enthused are two dozen of the world's top players that they will compete fervently for the honor of representing their country and expressing their pride rather than the all-powerful cash.
Fans of the NFL were treated to a wild week two set of games, capped off with a stunning Baltimore Ravens victory over the Chiefs. A series of last-second field goals (and misses) left bettors sweating it out on Sunday. To top it off, we will be treated to an NFC North matchup of the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers.
The Ryder Cup has established itself as one of the most prestigious athletic events in the world. A match-play competition pits 24 of the finest players from Europe and the United States against one other every two years. Drama, tension, fantastic golf, camaraderie, and sportsmanship are all served up in equal measure, enthralling an international audience of millions. It's a sporting event that transcends sports while remaining true to its founder, Samuel Ryder.
The second week of the NFL season will conclude with an NFC North matchup between the Detriot Lions and Green Bay Packers. Both teams were dominated for at least most of their respective games in Week 1. This game is a great opportunity for the winner to build momentum and start the rest of the season the way they wanted to last week.
It is always interesting to track the money. One of the most prominent and accessible indicators of where the betting syndicates are siding in a game comes from the ticket-to-handle ratio. When a side has substantially more money than the percentage of tickets sold, it tells you that the people backing that side are doing so with significantly more money per wager.
With the NFL season now in full swing, no one in the United States is happier than the sportsbook owner/operators. According to multiple reports, the NFL's opening weekend helped U.S sportsbooks take in a record-setting number of bets. Although there is a growing number of states allowing legalized betting, a vast majority of the country is still (legally) limited to Daily Fantasy as a way to profit off sports.

Oh, the woeful tight end position. No one's favorite when it comes to DFS (unless you're some kind of sicko, which I might actually be) yet ever so crucial in actual football. Sometimes it feels like pretty much a crapshoot unless you are using one of the select few high-end options. There is, however, an argument to be made that this is one of the most essential roster spots on any DFS lineup. Since there is only one TE hole to fill, getting the top-scoring TE on the slate in that spot is one of the more critical factors for any DFS tournament team. Let's look at this week's options.
I watch film, I model, I predict. Here are my fantasy values for Week 2 of the 2021 NFL season, all in one place:
his column previews three Week 2 matchups: the Kansas City Chiefs at the Baltimore Ravens, the Las Vegas Raiders at the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the Buffalo Bills at the Miami Dolphins.
Here we are, and NFL week two is nearly upon us. Week one is all about people believing they know far more than they do. Week two is all about the field overreacting to what we saw in week one. The second week of the NFL season can actually be one of the best times to gain an edge in tournaments since overreaction to the smallest of sample sizes in week one is inevitable. This week, we don't have as much of a mega-obvious chalk build, with less clear value at the WR position. This should lead to very different roster constructions than we saw in week one. Let's dig into the running back position for week two.
ferent this week. We do still have some solid cheap value in good game environments if looking to pay down. Some of the best point-per-dollar options at WR and RB live in the mid-range this week, which could lead to more balanced builds being optimal. Let's take a look at some of the top WRs in each tier for week two.
