EPL Daily Fantasy Breakdown – 2016 Week 13

EPL Daily Fantasy Breakdown – 2016 Week 13   It’s that time again as Research Fantasy brings you this weekends EPL games and plays. Soccer is one of those sports if you want to make money you have to do your research, and we can bring you our plays and players we think may have success in any given game but I will remind everyone as I do at the end of every article, remember to check the lineups that come out an hour or so before kick off. I know for football and even the NBA you can plug guys in the night before and know they will play, soccer is not like that especially this week when there are Champions League game during the week. So once again double check guys are playing before kickoff!  West Bromwich-Hull City–West Brom may be the biggest surprise so far this season as the are in 9th place and a match up with Hull should yield 3 points. Hull has a league worst -17 goal difference. Plays: FWD-Salomon Rondon(WBA) MID-Sam Clucas(HULL) GK-Ben Foster(WBA) DEF-Craig Dawson(WBA) Liverpool-Sunderland-Liverpool should get back to there goal scoring ways against one of the worst defenses in the EPL. Plays: FWD-Roberto Firmino(LIV) MID-James Milner(LIV) FWD-Jermain Defoe(SUN) DEF-Joel Matip(LIV) Leicester-Middlesbrough-Leicester is a strange team, champions league play they look amazing while EPL league they look bad. This is...

EPL Daily Fantasy Breakdown – 2016 Week 12

Can you do us a favor and fill out a fantasy sports survey? It will take less than 2 minutes. Thank you in advance!Loading... EPL DFS Picks – 2016 Week 12 Soccer, or football as it’s called everywhere except the USA, is the most followed and most profitable sport in the world. We here at Research Fantasy decided it’s time to focus some of our efforts on talking daily soccer now that FanDuel and DraftKings both offer the sport. Now that the international break is done, this is the best time to start focusing on the EPL for DFS. 11 games into the season and I feel we have a good idea of what teams need to do not only in the transfer market, which starts in January but what they need to do to stay atop the league. Sunderland-Hull City– A battle between 2 of the bottom 3 teams both fighting to stay in the first division and not be regulated. Both teams have a less than impressive defense so goals might be aplenty here. Plays: DEF-Curtis Davies(HULL) FWD-Victor Anichebe(SUND), if he starts DEF-Michael Dawson(HULL) Stoke City-Bournemouth-2 middle of the table teams hoping the first 1/4 of the season was a springboard for better things starting now. Plays: MID-Joe Allen(STOKE) MID-Xherdan Shaqiri(STOKE), if fit to play DEF-Charlie Daniels(BOU) Crystal Palace-Manchester City-Man City is a tired team playing in so many...

College Football Week 11 Recap

  College Football Breakdown – 2016 Week 11   Week 11 brought us the chaos that some of us had hoped for but in a way none of us thought. 5 of the top 10 lost, some of which came on last second plays while others were over before the final drives. Could this be the year the college football committee actually has to do work? In previous years, the final 4 were cut and dry and no one could argue for other teams getting in. This year, however, at the end of the season you could have 2-3 teams that have legit arguments to be in the final 4.   Best Game of the Week:   A Lot  Lets just list the games that are best game of the week material. Pittsburgh-Clemson-Last second field goal by Pitt gives Pitt one of the biggest wins in program history. Clemson finally loses a game it should have lost. Michigan-Iowa–Another game decided by a last second field goal. Iowa wins 14-13 and Michigan looked horrible, and lost its starting QB Wilson Speight for the season to a broken collarbone. Ole Miss-Texas A&M-Battle of backup QB’s where Ole Miss looked better in the second half putting up 23 points in the 4th quarter. Penn State-Indiana-Penn State scores 24 points in the 4th quarter to save its season. Texas Tech-Oklahoma State-High scoring back and forth game...

College Football Week 10 Recap

Can you do us a favor and fill out a fantasy sports survey? It will take less than 2 minutes. Thank you in advance!Loading... Week 10 proved to everyone one thing: rankings mean nothing. The frauds that are the college football playoff committee put a 1 loss SEC team in front of an undefeated Pac-12 team and what happened? The 1 loss Texas A&M got embarrassed on the road at Mississippi State while the undefeated Washington rolled to a 66-27 victory also on the road at Cal. None of these rankings matter until the last one to determine who actually gets to play in the final 4.   Best Game of the Week:   Oklahoma State-Kansas State  This was a back an forth game throughout the whole game. OK State had a 21-16 lead at halftime and Mason Rudolph looked like he was going to roll to another huge day. He ended with a huge day but it was not as easy as OK State fans would have liked. Down 37-28 OK State and Rudolph had to score twice in the last 8 minutes; once on a 82 yard TD strike to James Washington and after a 3 and out the would score again on a 17 yard TD run from Chris Carson. K-State would have one last attempt from the OK State 18 yard line but K-State QB...

College Football Week 9 Recap

College Football Week 9 Recap   Week 9 has been the craziest week to date. 5 top 18 teams upset and 4 top 10 teams taken to the limit but survived. That’s the name of the game the rest of the way: survive and advance. At this point in the season, any slip up and its going to be extremely difficult to climb back into a position to be in the final 4. Best Game of the Week:   Louisville-Virginia  Not only did Lamar Jackson leave the Hesiman Trophy door open, but his team almost suffered an embarrassing loss on the road against a 2-6 Virginia team that has looked horrible this season. Jackson lead his team down the field and hit Jaylen Smith on a 29 yard TD pass with 13 seconds left to steal a win. For Jackson, 361 passing yards and 4 passing TD’s looks unimpressive and leaves the door open for guys like JT Barrett and Jake Browning. Biggest Let Down of the Week:   Baylor Not only did Baylor cost itself a chance at the final 4, but they also cost the Big 12 it’s only chance to get a team in as well. Losing on the road at Texas 35-34 on a last second FG by Texas showed everyone that this Baylor team led by former Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe is not...
