It's time to get ready for NFL Week 16 DFS and we need to set everything up a little differently this week as the NFL schedule pushes the FanDuel and DraftKings 10-game main slates to Christmas Eve on Saturday while we get another three-game slate on Sunday, Christmas Day. The NFL Week 16 DFS Watch List will be, as it usually is, specific to the main slate and we will have a separate NFL DFS Playbook for the three-game slate on Sunday which will come out on Saturday during the games. And yes, both slates will have NFL DFS Week 16 Example Lineups as well. Main slate ones will arrive by noon (eastern) on Saturday and then the Sunday ones will come out an hour before that slate kicks off. But those are the only real noticeable changes. Everything else stays the same, from the position coaches to the NFL Week 16 DFS Projections to all the NFL tools.
After such a crazy week last week, let's skip all the other pleasantries and just get down to business.
Just a heads up, we still 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 15
Last week was a rough one. We hit the nail on the head with our Saturday Playbook, but that Sunday slate got all sorts of crazy. Some of the chalk hit – we got strong efforts from Derrick Henry, James Conner and A.J. Brown – but if you go back to our NFL Live Stats page and look at who the top names were, you're going to be doing a lot of head-scratching. When you have days like that, it favors the max-lineup players and people who believe that the only way for you to win a GPP is to have lineups filled with random dart-throws. We're better than that, so we'll concede a week to them, but will come back even stronger next time. Below is the value list for the Playbook, but again, not a lot of great stuff about it. Christmas Eve and Day will be significantly better for us.
And not that it matters much, but here are the top lineups you could have created on your own using ONLY the players from the Playbook and Dart Board:
