Fade Peyton Manning in Thursday DFS
If you are a serious fantasy player, chances are you are playing daily fantasy sports (DFS). It is without a doubt the next big thing in the industry and it has created a significant opportunity to make money for those who know what they are doing.
Daily fantasy operates under a budget, so the relative value a player offers at his respective price is just as important as his raw statistical production when constructing lineups. PFF Fantasy offers many great DFS resources. I’ll be focusing on Thursday night games and making sure you get your lineups off to the right start each week.
This Thursday features a huge early season AFC West matchup with the two favorites in the division: Denver and Kansas City. Arrowhead Stadium will be as loud as ever under the lights, giving a boost to a defense that should smell blood in the water after watching film of a deteriorated Peyton Manning from Week 1. Vegas seems to agree that it will be a defensive-minded game with a 42 point over/under that is tied for the third lowest of the week, meaning this is not a game that you want a ton of exposure to. Still, as always, there is some value to be mined and traps to be avoided.
