THE GOOD

Overall, I’d say my power rankings were on the right track. There were a few exceptions of course, and I’ll talk about those in “The Bad” paragraph. Out of the 5 players that I predicted would have great weeks and therefore picked in multiple lineups, 2 of them (Chris Carson and Austin Hooper) had great games, and the other 3 (Mark Ingram, Byron Pringle and Redskins D) did good enough to warrant their salary price. I also managed to double my money with my second and third lineups, so that is a plus for obvious reasons. Going 2/3 with my Draft Kings lineups is a winning week literally and motivationally, and everybody knows I needed a week like this badly.

THE BAD

To put it bluntly, my first lineup was the dictionary definition of bad. It’s all good though because every week I usually make a long shot lineup, and this was for sure it this time around. Minshew Mania was bound to end eventually, and I shouldn’t have gone so all in on The Jags offense the way that I did. In addition to the Jags offense being shit, the rest of that lineup was ice cold way so its irrelevant. As for bad regarding my power rankings, the standout players that I ranked incorrectly were Dalvin Cook, Zach Ertz, Cooper Kupp and The Cowboys D.

All in all, I’m pretty happy with how Week 6 went on Draft Kings. I would have loved to have gone 3/3 and won money with all of my lineups, but there’s no sense getting greedy when you’re already in the hole. If you’ve been following along with how my game picks have been going, you know all about that hole I’m referencing.

This week was a little different than usual because of my vacation so I only did the Sunday games, whereas usually I do Thursday-Monday. This might have worked in my favor though and helped me get a much needed comeback week. Unfortunately, my dumbass will go right back to my Thursday-Monday format and I’ll probably go right back to losing. Just gonna have to wait and see. We’re on to Week 7.
