DFS Cheat Sheets

Spectre’s NBA DFS Breakdown: Thursday, December 14th, 2017

Sean’s rocking the player breakdown for NFL week 15, so I’ll post my picks here today.  Monday, Wednesday, and Friday my picks are in the Lineup Logic cheat sheet with Sean’s, Josh’s, and Scott’s.  Don’t forget, for just $15/month you can get access to both Fantasy5x5 premium and our Lineup Logic cheat sheets, @joshfern ‘s worksheets, and Slack chat access via Patreon where we hang out all day and prepare for the slate.

A five-game slate, to me, means eating what we believe to be the good chalk, and making some smart pivots in certain areas to be different.  I love doing this in smaller tournaments on slates like this.  For example, I’ll be using a lot of the green plays you see below, but at certain positions I might see a higher ceiling elsewhere (the gold plays), and make the pivot despite there being a bit more risk.

Let’s do this using the cheat sheet format, with preferred players (in all formats) in GREEN and preferred tournament options in GOLD.  These are the players I’ll have nearly locked in my lineups, with the non-highlighted names being peppered in here and there.

Check out our partner Fantasy5x5 for inactives, situations to monitor, tons of useful tools, and so much more.
