Who's ready for some NFL Week 15 DFS? With the fantasy football playoffs starting up, there are a number of people out there just jonesing for some NFL action and the only way to really scratch that itch is with DFS. Ok, sure, you can bet the games too, but to do the full fantasy breakdown, daily fantasy football is where it's at. We've got a fantastic slate of games this week and multiple ways to play it. You'll get your usual Thursday Night Football showdown, but just like Thanksgiving Day, you'll get a separate three-game Playbook for Saturday and then a full main slate Playbook for Sunday. The focus for Saturday will be building winning DFS lineups for GPP tournaments and then we'll go back to working in our cash lineups for the Sunday main slate. Of course we'll do GPP lineups for Sunday as well, but there are just four weeks left to the 2022 NFL season, and that is usually where the cash games stop. The NFL playoffs have smaller slates and, as we've discussed before, playing cash games on smaller slates becomes much more difficult because of all the player overlap. So let's get our focus here and finish the season strong.
Just a heads up, we have our Fantasy Alarm Holiday Special running where using the promo code HOLIDAY will get you 20% off the annual subscription price PLUS a special #FAmily member swag bag that includes a Fantasy Alarm t-shirt, logo pint glass and Fantasy Alarm stickers. This will run through the month of December, so if you want to spoil someone in your life, it makes for a fantastic gift.
Now, for those who may be joining us for the first time here, allow me to say Welcome and give you “the talk.”
“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 14
This was actually a really solid week for value. Yes, it was better on DraftKings than it was on FanDuel and that's going to happen from time to time due to the price discrepancies on some of the value picks. This week, we tried using D'Onta Foreman and Travis Homer as value backs on FanDuel and neither guy came through, whereas on DraftKings we had guys like Adam Thielen, DJ Chark and even Phillip Dorsett available to us. With all of their pricing below $5,000, we were able to bet bigger-named receivers like Justin Jefferson and Ja'Marr Chase into our lineups, so when both the value and the chalk hit, we win.
And here are the top lineups you could have created on your own using ONLY the players from the Playbook and Dart Board:
