Monday Night Risk Reward Week 3

Monday Night Risk Reward Week 3 

Game Script Overview, Game Script by Predicted Game Totals and Each Game DAPs


Monday Night Risk Reward Week 3 has my Risk and Reward Analysis will include:

  • Game Script
  • Defense against the Position (DAP) Data
  • Non-PPR and PPR Rankings (100 to 0) Green to Red
  • My Risk Assessments for each Player (High, Mid, and Low Risk)

I have constructed these data charts to maximize your visual view of the entire game landscape. Use thoughtfully. My philosophy is less is more. I may hit the highlights but will try not give you the same old tired pundit driven opinions.

I like to see the overall points to be scored, then into the positional DAPs and finally to risk and ranks. I let the bargains come to me in DFS. Do not force yourself to play heavily this early.

DAL should win this game! They however still will be in a dogfight vs a -1.5 overall DAP! Dak vs a +3.9 easy DAP and will need to score 3X. The WRs should be productive vs a +2.9 WR DAP. I think DEZ is Dez tonight and could get 2x TDs as a ceiling! T Will could catch the 3rd TD or Beasley will! The issue is that RB and TE Elliot and Witten Face -2.4 to -2.7 DAPS. If DAK can get the passing game going then Elliot will collect the 4th score later and Witten as well for 5TDs. DAL should get 4 to 6 TDs to win! If DAK connects and pushes the ARI defense then the Eliot/Witten train places the game into the DAL column! The passing game is the Fulcrum for Dallas!

DAL has fewer high-risk players than ARI!  ARI needs it best to beat an average DAL performance this night!




ARI faces an easier time than thought vs a +0.9 overall DAP. They have an opportunity to be competitive this night! Palmer goes against a +1.3 QB DAP and should get 2X TDs or 3. His WRs also have a good game script vs +2.9. Larry is still mid-risk to low -risk +86 WR2 this week. I also think JJ Nelson is a similarly ranked lower-risk player! 1TD each is expected but this game could see a high scoring total and Nelson has a ceiling of 2x TDs! The Running Backs as a RBBC should get a score of two as well vs. a +6.8. ARI wins this game if the RBs go off (Fulcrum of the Team)! I rate Johnson as a safe (low-risk) RB 3 this week with RB 2 upside! Willaims is a mid-risk RB 4 level player! Ellington just might catch a pass or two as well! The TE Gresham is quite vs a -1.1. I think the ceiling is 5 TDs for the ARI team closer to 35 points! This game seems to be trending that way!
