Thoughts on the first 6 games of the week

Here are some of my initial reactions to the preseason action we have seen so far.

The Raider offense isn’t quite there yet. I spoke with a Raider beat writer on Friday, and he didn’t have a lot of great things to report. It appears they are still prepared to try Darren McFadden a lot at RB, which we know won’t really work. WR Chaz Schilens’ foot issue seems to be in play still, and WR Darius Heyward-Bey’s great offseason has come down to earth a little. The good news is TE Zach Miller’s been great.

Tony Romo’s never going to change. He’ll always be a guy who holds on to the ball at times and breaks plays down on his own when he shouldn’t. He’s always going to have the faults we always point out, but he’ll still put up large fantasy numbers.

The Patriot offense is shaping up to be pretty damn good. It might be changing a little to take advantage of their new toys (like the TEs and WR Brandon Tate), but that can’t be a bad thing. I think they could be potent even without Wes Welker because Julian Edelman looks fantastic. If they have Welker, look out.

Of the my starting $500 Bankroll, I was left with $471 come Tuesday Morning. Not terrible. It’s all about having fun and hopefully winning a little money in the process. I […]

  • The DFS Virgin “Week 1″ September 11, 2015
    And here we are. Week One. Thursday Night Football. A damp, fall-like evening in the Northeast. The perfect evening to kickoff the NFL’s 50th SuperBowl Season. I’m not going to lie, I have some butterflies in my belly. Maybe it’s because I just deposited $500 into an account at Maybe it’s because I never […]
