Hunter Report Week 12 2017

(11/21/2017)

Hunter Report Week 6 2017

(10/11/2017)
I finally had a decent week in DFS play, or one that I consider solid enough to talk about here. Look at the lineup below that snagged me 2,497th place out of 634,165 entrants in the DraftKings NFL $1.6M Play-Action [$100K to 1st], for a $30 win with a $3 entry. Winning 10 times your entry fee is al Full Story

Hunter Report Week 5 2017

(10/4/2017)
Let’s get right to Week 5, and don’t forget I’m using DraftKings.com salaries. Cheers to you winning the big pool play! Week 5: QUARTERBACK Top Level Aaron Rodgers, GB @ Dallas Cowboys ($8,100) – Rodgers is averaging 24 FPPG this season in DraftKings games. Not bad, eh? I love this game Full Story

Hunter Report Week 4 2017

(9/27/2017)
Let’s get right to Week 4, and don’t forget I’m using DraftKings.com salaries. Cheers to you winning the big pool play! QUARTERBACK Top Level Tom Brady, NE vs. Carolina Panthers ($8,000) – Brady is a cut above the rest of the field this week, so if you’re going to spend up at QB here you Full Story

Hunter Report Week 3 2017

(9/20/2017)
I hope you listened to me and paid up for Tom Brady’s services in Week 2, while also taking advantage of Jarvis Landry’s 11-catch day. But I sure hope you didn’t listen to me on Kareem Hunt and Michael Crabtree, both listed in my “Overvalue” section last week. Yikes, that sure did hurt. I love Ka Full Story

Hunter Report Week 2 2017

(9/14/2017)
How did you fare with your DraftKings NFL $5.55M Fantasy Football Millionaire ($1M to 1st) lineup? I didn’t do so hot, so I won’t bore you with the details. How many of you had Jacksonville’s Defense, or the young Bears running back Tarik Cohen? Every year there’s always some young whippersnappe Full Story

Hunter Report Week 1 2017

(9/6/2017)
The year is shaping up nicely for another successful DFS season. Of course, it depends on what you consider successful. Being on the plus side over 17 weeks of the NFL regular season sure would be nice, but isn’t breaking even a success too? Well, maybe; however, no one wants to just break even. Full Story

TheHunterReport DFS Week 20 2016

(1/17/2017)
This is it – your last chance to lock in on a NFL DFS lineup! Crazy season, huh? It’s going to be sad to see it end. Still, we’ve come so far yet again. It’s been a pleasure writing this piece for FootballDiehards.com. For those that have been loyal to this column I really, really dig you. Thank Full Story

TheHunterReport DFS Week 19 2016

(1/11/2017)
I guess I pegged Odell Beckham, Jr. wrong as being the best performing WR during Wildcard Weekend, huh? Sometimes staying with the obvious in Antonio Brown just serves your lineup best, so getting cute can hurt you at times – just like punching a wall. With the NFL slate being whittled away due t Full Story

TheHunterReport DFS Week 18 2016

(1/4/2017)
We’ve only got eight games to choose from, but we should be able to have some excellent options to snare from the Wild Card Playoff rounds. As always, I’m using DraftKings.com salaries for reference. With the NFL slate being whittled away due to the regular season ending, you’ll see that my piece is Full Story

TheHunterReport DFS Week 17 2016

(12/28/2016)
This is it, Folks – the last week of the 2016 regular season is upon us. This is the last week that we’ll be able to fill out a lineup with a full slate of games on the docket. We’ll get playoff games, sure, but it just isn’t the same deal-io, is it? It’s hard to believe that the season is at an Full Story

TheHunterReport DFS Week 16 2016

(12/20/2016)
It continues to be a very interesting football season, with players tanking late in the season that aren’t supposed to tank. And, of course, the reverse is happening as well. I’m sure it’s been going on since the inception of football, although it’s seemingly hitting me harder this year than most. Full Story

TheHunterReport DFS Week 15 2016

(12/13/2016)
Where has the NFL season gone? Yep, there’s only three weeks left in the regular season. That means there’s only three weeks left in the DFS pool where we get a full slate of games. Sure, we’ll get playoff games to rustle up some good lineups, but when the player pool gets dwindled everyone’s NFL Full Story

TheHunterReport DFS Week 13 2016

(11/30/2016)
Rather than focusing on the misery of Week 12, I’m immediately moving to Week 13. NFL DFS just hasn’t been kind to me this season, mainly since I’m taking far too many risks with my lineups. Right, right, you have to be risky and contrarian when all you play is GPP. I know that, so it comes with the Full Story

TheHunterReport DFS Week 12 2016

(11/22/2016)
I knew at some point I’d cash again – I just didn’t think I’d go nine weeks in between. Without further adieu, I’m getting straight to my one and ONLY lineup I submitted in the DraftKings NFL $1.2M Play-Action [$1,200,000] contest. At the last minute, I decided to be a cheapie in Week 11 and sub Full Story

TheHunterReport DFS Week 11 2016

(11/16/2016)
Well, that wasn’t good. I thought I’d be sneaky and sly and submit five lineups under the DraftKings NFL $2M Mini Midseason Celebration [$100K to 1st] contest, where it’s only $4 to play. I thought for sure I’d cash out with a couple of my lineups. Nope. Ever hear of a DFS slump? I’m in one right no Full Story

TheHunterReport DFS Week 10 2016

(11/10/2016)
Things got a bit better for me in Week 9, although I still didn’t cash. This one lineup thingy is tough, mainly since I only want to spend the one $20 entry fee. This week, I’m going to change things up a bit and enter five different lineups in the DraftKings NFL $2M Mini Midseason Celebration [$100 Full Story

TheHunterReport DFS Week 9 2016

(11/3/2016)
It’s starting to get ugly. I usually don’t have this sort of a poor run, but it’s been six weeks of not cashing in the DraftKings NFL Fantasy Football Millionaire [1M to 1st] contests. Sometimes I tend to over think and crunch the numbers too much, if that’s possible. I need to rely on my gut just a Full Story

TheHunterReport DFS Week 8 2016

(10/26/2016)
In Week 7, I played the DraftKings NFL $4.25M Fantasy Football Millionaire [1M to 1st] contest with very similar results to the last bunch of weeks. This is getting old, staying so mediocre and not cashing. Sure, I could increase my chances by submitting a bunch of lineups – you have to have a fat b Full Story

TheHunterReport DFS Week 7 2016

(10/19/2016)
The DraftKings NFL $4.44M Fantasy Football Millionaire [1M to 1st] contest is getting the best of me right now, with my fourth week in a row not finishing in the money. Week 6 provided some interesting results, although I was too hit-or-miss with my choices, netting almost the same exact finish as l Full Story

TheHunterReport DFS Week 6 2016

(10/12/2016)
It was another mediocre performance for me in the DraftKings NFL $4.44M Fantasy Football Millionaire [1M to 1st] contest in Week 5. The player suggestions are there as evident in my weekly write-ups; I just keep grouping the wrong players together. For instance, no Ezekiel Elliott in my lineup, even Full Story

TheHunterReport DFS Week 5 2016

(10/5/2016)
As a long-time fantasy sports veteran, I’m quite happy to see Week 4 end. I’ve never completed a study to correlate my theory, but I truly believe that the NFL will start to settle down as we head into Week 5. Meaning: we won’t see as many crazy games and upsets as we did during the first four weeks Full Story

TheHunterReport DFS Week4 2016

(9/29/2016)
I finished 111,287 out of 256,904 in the DraftKings NFL $4.44M Fantasy Football Millionaire [1M to 1st] contest in Week 3, finishing way out of any money spots. I guess I can’t expect to cash every week. I know you don’t, right? Take a look at the lineup I went with: Position Player % Dr Full Story

(9/21/2016)
How many of you had Stefon Diggs in your DFS lineups? Good for you. Unfortunately, I wasn’t one of these genius folks. If you were fortunate enough to speculate on Diggs’ fortuitous day, I’m pretty sure you placed well in your leagues; however, I did get return on my one lineup investment, winning $ Full Story

TheHunterReport DFS Week2 2016

(9/14/2016)
The best I could muster last week in DRAFTKINGS NFL $5M FANTASY FOOTBALL MILLIONAIRE [$1M TO 1ST] was a 252,071 place finish. Seems pretty pitiful, doesn’t it? It’s not where I wanted to finish, although I did cash out while doubling my $3 entry fee. I’ll take it. There were a total of 1,436,510 ent Full Story

TheHunterReport DFS Week1 2016

(9/5/2016)
Crazy how time flies, right? Week 1 of the NFL is upon us and for some of us it’s time to get heavily invested again. Are you in? I am. This is what we’ve all been waiting for: Josh Gordon and Le’Veon Bell suspended, Peyton Manning, Marshawn Lynch and Calvin Johnson retired, and Ezekiel Elliott e Full Story

This daily fantasy sports thing has sure gotten crazy eh?

(7/24/2016)
Let’s be honest: DFS is fun, enticing and, well, downright exciting. The prospect of beating opponents, while winning some dough, drives us into this lovely hobby of ours. Plus, don’t forget about the smidge of hope that floats around in the back of our minds that we could be one of those dudes that Full Story
