Welcome to the ninth edition of GPP Leverage for NFL DFS. This article is going to be a catch-all space for my GPP thoughts during the course of the NFL season. In this space, we’ll mix some macro and micro concepts to help improve your odds in tournaments. The goal is to differentiate your play in an intelligent and correlated way that gives you a better chance to get paid off when you’re right.
I think it’s important to note I’m not a football guy who plays DFS. I’m a professional DFS player who plays NFL. So my play is largely through the prism of using resources around me to do what I do best: Play the game of DFS within the context of the NFL. Whether this is you or you’re a football guy who has a better handle on the schemes and the mismatches, there should be something in here for you to improve your game as a DFS GPP player.

WEEK 8 ANALYSIS
Week 8 was another good one for Leverage as we identified IND-DET and KC-NYJ as the two pivots from SEA-SF that made the most sense. Despite all the points in the dome, the IND-DET game ended up difficult to stack as Philip Rivers nearly completed a pass to as many different Colts receiving options as he has children and Kenny Golladay/D’Andre Swift combined for less fantasy points than Rivers has children. However, KC stacks ended up redeeming us as the tournament winners on both sites. Our own Mike Leone used a KC-NYJ game stack to take down the Thunderdome while I had a few sweats that came up short using KC or DET-IND stacks.
