And just like that, we're back to our research with another main slate coming up for NFL Week 12. The article and Watch List below will be focused on the Sunday games. If you are looking for Thursday action, there will be a special NFL DFS Playbook for the Thanksgiving Day three-game slate. We will also have a separate DFS Showdown write-up for the Miami Dolphins/New York Jets game being played on Black Friday. All the plays you need to succeed will be readily available and all of that content will be out in plenty of time to build your winning DFS lineups. Now, I know we've been focused on roster construction this past week and that was a huge boost to many of you. Just keep in mind that short slates like the one we will have Thursday have a much different strategy than for contests on the Sunday main slate. Shorter slates tend to push you into a few more dart-throws than you would probably like but you have to find different ways to separate yourself from the herd. But all of that will be discussed in that Playbook. For our purposes here, we've made the necessary adjustments to improve on our GPP tournament lineups, we've continued to crush it in our cash games and we are ready to follow that upward trajectory!



Yet another big DFS week for the #FAmily and with that brings a new wave of new subscribers, so as always, I would like to welcome all of you. I love seeing all the new screen names in Discord and seeing all of these new sign-ups for the All-Pro package makes me very happy, so before we fully dive in to the NFL DFS Week 8 Watch List, please allow me to welcome all of the new members of the Fantasy Alarm #FAmily. There are a lot of you and we thank you for joining. Now it's up to us to help you cash consistently on your NFL DFS action and we are psyched to make that happen. Since you are new to the Watch List, allow me to share some thoughts real quick:

“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 adage 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 Sunday 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.

So what exactly did last week's Playbook deliver? As always, we like to check in to ensure we remain on the right path.

Scoring The Playbook Week 11

Well, our 2-TE strategy comes up short this week with massively disappointing performances by Sam LaPorta and Cole Kmet, but we definitely hit in a number of areas where the masses avoided. First and foremost, the Trevor Lawrence/Calvin Ridley pairing was a huge hit. We stacked them along with either Christian Kirk or Evan Engram, which obviously didn't work, nor did our correlation with either Tyjae Spears or Kyle Philips. We had DeAndre Hopkins in the Playbook so that was the call, but we tried to stay invested in other games so the salary didn't work for us on that front. Another strong takeaway was the pay-down at running back. That continues to work for us, so we'll keep an eye out on that RB value during our research. Nothing we can do about NFL injuries. We got burned by Aaron Jones leaving early and many of you also got tagged by the De'Von Achane exit as well. It happens. We move on. Overall, though, we improved on our GPP scores overall, so the extra work with Dan Malin and Jon Impemba on lineup construction paid off. With a similar effort this week, I think we've got it!

Now let's get to who we're watching for the NFL Week 12 DFS Main Slate!
