Who's ready to finish the 2023 NFL DFS season in style? First and foremost, I'd like to thank Jon Impemba for taking over not just the NFL DFS Playbook last week, but also the DFS Weekly Watch List and all the fixins that come with a full DFS week. It looks like the #FAmily did great and now I am re-charged and ready to dive into things here in Week 17. Hard to believe we're already at this point, but don't worry – we've got you for this week, next week and then we start diving into the short slates for the NFL playoffs. So with that ahead of us, we start the week off as we usually do – identify the soft match-ups and figure out what angles we want to take as we build winning DFS lineups for both cash games and GPP tournaments. We will also identify which teams are vying for playoff spots, divisional titles, improved playoff seeding and, of course, potential record-setting, career-best milestones. Having something to play for over these next two weeks is going to be paramount to our success.



With many people being eliminated from the fantasy football playoffs and another fantastic week for DFS Playbook, courtesy of Jon Impemba, comes another 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 17 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 16

An absolutely rock-solid job by Jon Impemba, identifying both the chalk and the top DFS bargain plays from this past week. While he may not have had Amari Cooper in the Playbook, the other slate-breaker, Breece Hall, was there and there were enough other top receivers to use in lineups to still score big points this past week. We'll carry this momentum into NFL Week 17 and see about coming away from the second-to-last week of the 2023 NFL season with some big wins for the #FAmily! Let's get it!
