Oh the humanity! The carnage! NFL Week 2 was a veritable bloodbath and while our cash lineups escaped some of the bigger injuries and easily cleard the cash line, we weren't as lucky with some of our GPP picks. Injuries happen. We roll with the punches and move on. That's the beauty of playing DFS. We can move past the carnage and appreciate the potential value we should see this week with so many no-named players likely to step into more prominet roles.We should also see some interesting pricing as some of the bigger disappointments from the first two weeks. Bargain-hunting is always fun, especially when you unearth some gems like Mo Alie-Cox and Adam Humphries .

If you've been a card-carrying member of the #FANation #FAmily, feel free to hit the player list. For those who are just joining us as NFL Playbook Pro subscribers, allow me to introduce you to the DFS Watch List.

If you give a man a fish, he’ll eat for a day. If you teach a man to fish, he’ll eat for a lifetime.

We take this to heart when it comes to playing NFL DFS. The Fantasy Alarm Playbook isn’t just about handing you a list of players and a lineup to use each week. It is designed to help you learn to be a better DFS player. It’s about teaching you the process used in selecting which players to scout and, eventually, which ones to use.

Therefore, we will begin each week with the Weekly NFL DFS Watch List which is designed to keep tabs on marquee names, chalk plays and, of course, the weekly bargains who may not see the same coverage and exposure. This piece will be continuously updated throughout the week, based on the most recent news and injuries which means you may see a name or two removed as we get closer to kick-off. You may also see a few late-week additions who pique our interest for some reason too, and by the end of the week, this Watch List will eventually become your Playbook. Again, it’s about teaching you the process.
