Each week I will make daily fantasy football lineups suggestions specific to DraftStreet, Draft Day, and Draft Kings, FanDuel that we like to call DFS Cheat Codes. In the world of gaming, cheat codes involve a player using non-standard methods for creating an advantage beyond normal gameplay. I think that’s a very apt definition of this weekly column. I’ll be incorporating our fantastic daily apps with some other contrarian tactics championed by the rest of the RotoViz staff. It’s important to note that the scoring and position requirements at these sites are slightly different. A dual threat quarterback offers more value on sites with four-points per passing TD than sites with six. Finally, you should not just blindly follow these lineups. Very often guys are ruled out, players are upgraded, downgraded and usage becomes clearer as game-time approaches. There are tons of places to check for pre game updates, but I’ve found Twitter searches work best for me. Quick Reads: – In a bit of non-fantasy news, it looks like the Jaguars may be once again playing their way out of position to draft a franchise quarterback. I do not know how to reconcile the “to tank or not to tank” dilemma when it comes to football, but there is no denying a team like the Colts benefited from hitting rock bottom in 2011. – Is it just me or did Chad Henne look pretty decent last night? I mean at the very least he made some nice throws in high leverage spots (his first two touchdowns came on third down) and extended a few plays with his legs. It was a welcome sight for those of us who have been stubborn enough to hold onto Cecil Shorts and start him out of desperation. – Finally, I wanted to address last week’s Monday Night Football game real quick. For as great, and I mean great, as Russell Wilson has been playing I remain in complete awe at the Seahawks play calling. Now I am not a tape-grinder nor will I pretend to fully grasp the depth of Seattle’s playbook, but it refreshing to see a team capitalize on its strengths.
