Dan's DFS picks for NFL Week 15

16 December 2015
Man, last week sucked. Not only was I knocked out of my season-long fantasy football league's playoffs, but I also had cashes stolen from me in two DraftKings GPPs. My Week 14 lineup entering Monday night was good enough to put me in the money in both the $3 buy-in Millionaire Maker and the $27 buy-in $1.5M ... (read more)
 

Dan's DFS picks for NFL Week 14

10 December 2015
It's Week 14, which means it's the first week of the playoffs for most season-long fantasy football leagues. I snuck into my league's postseason as the No. 6 seed (out of six teams), so I'm looking to make a 2007/2011 New York Giants-esque run and come out of nowhere to win the title. I could use the $700 first-place prize, too, as my daily fantasy bankroll keeps on plummeting by the minute. ... (read more)
 

Top 10 impressions of the Twin River poker room

7 December 2015
I've lived in New England for eight years and my wife's family lives in Rhode Island, but until last week I had never stepped foot inside Twin River Casino in Lincoln. See, while I am certainly a "gambling enthusiast," I really don't care much for slot machines or other table games. I'm a poker player. ... (read more)
 

Dan's DFS picks for NFL Week 13

3 December 2015
Another week, another gutter ball. After hitting rock bottom with my Week 11 picks, my Week 12 lineup didn't really perform much better in the DraftKings Millionaire Maker. I mustered just 130.66 points, good for 162,125th place. Hey, at least I beat 107,996 other lineups! But this week, I'm feeling a big score. ... (read more)
 

High-volume players boycott PokerStars

3 December 2015
Several well-known and high-volume poker players banded together this week to boycott PokerStars.com, the most trafficked poker site in the world. The three-day boycott that started Dec. 1, organized on the Two Plus Two forums by professional poker player Dani Stern, came in response to changes announced by PokerStars on Nov. ... (read more)
 

Dan's DFS picks for NFL Week 12

25 November 2015
Well, that was a complete and utter disaster. My Week 11 lineup produced just 83.56 points in the DraftKings Millionaire Maker, as six of my nine players scored in the single digits. That's not just bad. That's, like, so bad, I should be fired from writing this column. It's so bad I should retire from daily fantasy sports and take up craps. ... (read more)
 

Dan's DFS picks for NFL Week 11

19 November 2015
When I went to bed Monday night, right about at the end of the first quarter of the Bengals-Texans game, I just assumed I had no shot to cash in the DraftKings Millionaire Maker. I was wrong. I woke up Tuesday morning to an e-mail on my phone with a subject line that simply read, "danpodheiser, you won!" ... (read more)
 

Dan's DFS picks for NFL Week 10

12 November 2015
I had four really good picks in Week 9. The rest of my team was utter garbage. My Derek Carr-Amari Cooper stack was great. Jeremy Langford had a monster game in Matt Forte's absence, and Odell Beckham had another run-of-the-mill 20-plus point performance. And then there was the other side of the coin. ... (read more)
 

Dan's DFS picks for NFL Week 9

5 November 2015
So close, but so very, very far away. I had a decent week in the DraftKings Millionaire Maker in Week 8, but my picks came up just a tad bit short. I was 11 points away from a cash, but there were still a whopping 54,000 entries between me and the first player to min-cash. Yeah, these DFS guaranteed prize pool (GPP) tournaments are tough. ...

Dan's DFS picks for NFL Week 8

29 October 2015
When the 4 o'clock games ended on Sunday, I was having quite the day in the DraftKings Millionaire Maker. My Week 7 lineup had already amassed nearly 150 points, thanks to monstrous games from Todd Gurley, T.Y. Hilton, Antonio Brown and the Rams' defense. And I still had two of my key players to go, as ... (read more)
