1. I really like your site and I visit often. What is it that makes your site so successful?
We’ve been very fortunate to cultivate an extremely loyal user base that uses all facets of our website including our live chat room, fantasy analysis articles, waiver wire pickups blogs and iPhone apps, in addition to DFS advice and subscription based services. Our awesome writers, consistently produced content, willingness to live chat with users at any time, presence on social media from day one, and grass roots growth model, has enabled us to be in the position we are.
2. I've been asked this next question a couple times already on Twitter. Who's the better start for this week (week 9) in a 1/2 point PPR?
Rueben Randle vs. IND or
Brandon LaFell vs. DEN
It’s not a slam dunk because both players get a good amount of consistent targets, but LaFell plays for the more skilled quarterback on the much hotter offense, and we expect high projected scoring totals for this contest. Couple that eyeball test analysis with the fact that Indianapolis allows the fewest points to fantasy wide receivers on average, and we are pretty confident recommending the former Panthers great over the Giants second year man.
3. Give us one of your favorite buy low players right now.
LeSean McCoy has been one of the most undervalued players over the past few weeks, even on DFS sites, and he’s completely healthy, so you know the general industry consensus is that he’s currently in "bust status" and is not an RB1 at the moment. This is exactly the time to strike in trades for Shady and try to buy low on last year's #1 running back and first overall fantasy pick in most PPR drafts in this year. See if you can flip a Mohamed Sanu or Steve Smith Sr., maybe even with an RB2/FLEX, for the beleaguered back coming off another subpar performance in Week 8.
As a bonus, we’ll throw in A.J. Green for your buy low pleasure. See if you can trade an RB2 with upside like a Chris Ivory or Lamar Miller while their values are very high, and Green’s value remains depressed due to the uncertainty of his toe injury.
4. Do you know what to make of the ARZ WR Corps? Floyd let a lot of fantasy ballers down last week with his zero catch performance. Meanwhile Fitz and J. Brown got it done. This week ARZ plays DAL. What's your take on the ARZ WR situation moving forward and how would you rank the trio for this week?
The Cowboys come into Week 9 sporting the third best defense against fantasy wide receivers. While they only allow a mere 16.59 points per game average, they will have their hands full with Carson Palmer being back in form, and the emergence of possible the best long-term wide receiver on the team, John Brown. The rookie 3rd round pick was brought into Arizona for a reason, and he has become a Bruce Arians favorite and Carson Palmer’s preferred deep threat.
While Michael Floyd has under-performed due to being banged up and drawing tough coverage, Larry Fitzgerald seems to still be a clear cut #2 option in Arizona regardless of whether John Brown or Michael Floyd gets the highest percentage of targets every week. That being said, we would rate them as follows for the rest of this season: Floyd, Fitzgerald/Brown. Both Fitz and Brown are the coin flip #2 targets for Carson Palmer every week assuming Michael Floyd is 100% healthy and ready to play.
