  • 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)

Sunday Night Risk Reward Week 8  report has my constructed 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.

Sunday Night Risk Reward Week 8 SUNDAY NIGHT PIT VS DET


Note that DET has more Risky Type Players going this week!. A PIT is favored by a TD or so given the offensive firepower that Big Ben commands!

Stafford faces off against a very tough defense this week with a -17 DAP and -3.6 QB DAP. Subtract 2 Scores of so from DET. That places DET in the 2 TDs range at best! I have Stafford at a mid risk 44 because of the Pit D!

The DET WR go to war vs a -6 DAP. 2 Scores at best then. The Jones can get one/two and Tate if he plays. I did not rank him but if he plays he is a high risk near 80 rank! This seems to be a tough game for Tate to do well in!

The TEs vs -1.9 TE DAP. Fells might get a score. He and Ebron at high risk near 30!

Finally, the RBs face off vs -2.3 DAP. They are the game keys!  Abdullah and Riddick are mid-risk and 72 and 62 ranked! They have an opportunity to push the PIT D and if so the passing game could open up! They score 1 TD. Like Riddick as a longshot to score.

Sunday Night Risk Reward Week 8 SUNDAY NIGHT PIT VS DET


Big Ben goes to battle tonight with a tougher than average DET D! They have ended the seasons of a few players this year. A physical D! Ben is up against a -1 DAP and -2.3 QB DAP. He gets 3 Scores! I have him at a mid risk 41!

Brown and the WRs form PIT battle a -2.3 DAP and will get an average game! Brown does his usual! JuJu also can contribute to a score! Brown is low risk 99 and JuJu at mid risk 57!

The TEs have been active as PIT likes to use the TE position but they are missing a good TE! James is mid risk 20 and McDonald is at high risk 5! Some grabs only as check-downs! They struggle tonight even with a nice +2.3 TE DAP (DET D weakness). They certainly can score but seems like they have not stepped up this year!

Bell the RB also has a +2 favorable DAP to play into and should get rushing scores and nice yards! I worry about injury against the DET D. I might be stashing Conner in case! Bells is low risk 100!  PIT should win via their Defense and Big Ben getting the passing game rolling!
