Divisional Round DFS

Posted January 11, 2020

As I said last week, “It’s nice to be working a small slate for a change.”  Small slates are fun because you can see the key strategical points and players very clearly. Last week, I told you that Michael Thomas was the best raw play on the slate, but that his level of ownership would…

Posted December 28, 2019
