Thursday night DFS preview

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 games and making sure you get your lineups off to the right start each week.

Despite featuring several elite playmakers, Thursday’s matchup between the Rams and the Buccaneers features one of the lowest Las Vegas over/unders of the week with 41.0. With St. Louis favored by a single point, it means that both teams have relatively anemic implied team totals and this game should be avoided for the most part. Still, there is some value to be had here. As always, it is worth putting lineups into the Thursday slate even if they don’t have any Thursday players in them.

    Are we trusting in Evans against Trumaine? Is it better to start Tate vs Kyle Wilson in PPR?
