*** Please read this introduction fully BEFORE posting your question! ***
To our knowledge, DLF is the only fantasy site that answers your specific lineup questions all seventeen weeks of the NFL regular season and into the post season as well. It’s just another feature we offer our valued premium subscribers.
Our lineup advice isn’t an overly-simplified one-dimensional list of players each week which doesn’t account for your own individual situation, changing player variables or your match-up. Every week, each question is given our full attention with respect to match-up, weather and trends in combination with your unique circumstances to render a decision as if it was our own team. That’s the commitment that we make to each of you and what you hopefully have come to expect from DLF. We’ve been performing this service for years and despite our continued Premium subscriber growth, we’re not stopping now.
If you’d like a second opinion on your lineup for the week, simply comment to this post with your question. We’ll answer every single lineup question submitted in a timely fashion as an exclusive service only for our Premium subscribers.
Before submitting a question, please take note of the following items which will help us help you:
- DLF continues to grow and our weekly lineup advice is very popular. Our goal is to aid in your decision making, not manage your roster. Please don’t post each position from EVERY one of your teams. The fewer the questions, the more thorough our research can be. Because of the growth we’ve seen this past year, I ask that you please be very mindful of this request. Quality lineup advice means taking time with each one so please help us out in this area.
- Scoring System – Let us know if your league is PPR, non-PPR or if there are any unusual scoring rules that would affect our advice. “Standard” scoring often means different things to different owners.
- We always like to see what YOU are thinking on your question(s) first. On those “toss-up” or “coin-flip” plays, as we call them, knowing which way you are leaning helps us.
- Go easy on us! We strongly encourage each coach to make their own decision(s) but we’re here to help as much as possible. We pride ourselves on our accuracy and research, but our crystal balls aren’t perfect.
- If you wait until game day to ask your question, we may not get to you. Be sure to register your question as early as possible.
- If you respond to one of our comments, it’s usually best to do so as a brand new comment so it’s sure to be seen! Responses can get lost or missed as the string grows.
Good luck this season!
Let’s get to it!
It was an odd mix of excitement and bad football in week one! But even bad football is so much fun, I’m sure you all agree!
As I mentioned last week, don’t get caught up in the poor performance of your squad in week one. It’s not uncommon for defenses to have the upper hand until week three, give or take, until offenses gain rhythm and chemistry. Avoid the temptation to make impulsive moves or wild free agent bids. Sometimes it’s best to sit on your hands and let others burn their dry powder while you stay patient and watch from the sidelines.
It was also a brutal first week as we saw many good players fall for the season or, at least, a significant part of it. David Johnson, Allen Robinson, Danny Woodhead and Kevin White are just a few that suffered notable injuries. Again, resist the feeling to make crazy moves. In fact, while sitting on your hands, observe what your fellow coaches are doing, specifically noting who they are dropping to add this week’s hottest prospects. Many times you’ll find owners not as patient as you are providing opportunities for you to capitalize on hasty decisions. Be sure to follow our player news tool for a few possible targets. This week, keep an eye peeled for Josh Doctson, Kevin Hogan or Breshad Perriman. All are in the dog-house this week but still possess upside.
