Everything You Need to Know About Playing NFL DFS on Fantasy Aces
Anthony Amico and TwoQBs.com introduces you to its 2QB DFS content plan for the 2016 fantasy football season with a Fantasy Aces NFL DFS primer. …
It’s been a terrific ride so far here at TwoQBs. For the last few months there has been plenty of quality content pumped out to help you make your 2QB drafts a success in 2016. As NFL season finally approaches, we’re pleased to announce that not only will we be providing you with league-winning content throughout the year, we will also be doing our best to be THE home for Fantasy Aces NFL DFS content! Before I let you know about all of the awesome information we’ll be disseminating weekly, here’s a little info about Fantasy Aces if you aren’t already familiar.
It shouldn’t surprise you to see we’ll be providing content for a a DFS site that rosters two quarterbacks. In addition to that, Fantasy Aces requires one less wide receiver than both FanDuel and DraftKings, but utilizes two flex spots. There are also no kickers. Fantasy Aces definitely allows for the most flexibility in NFL DFS.
In addition to requiring two quarterbacks, Fantasy Aces also scores them differently. You receive more points for passing yards (.05) than the two major sites (.04), and are penalized more harshly for interceptions (-2 instead of -1). This will definitely impact how you select your signal callers, as you’ll want to avoid those who are prone to turnovers. Fantasy Aces is also a .5 PPR site.
Now that we have the general layout of the site out of the way, I’ll give you some pointers that I have found along my own journey on the site.
- Apply the techniques we preach on TwoQBs when selecting your quarterback plays: early-round QB, late-round QB, and studs and streaming. Instead of using ADP as a barometer of early/late quarterbacks, use the prices that the site gives.
- Consider how many points you can reasonably expect from each passer while choosing which strategy is best for a particular week. Perhaps on week there are a lot of tough quarterback matchups you might want to lock in two studs. In another week, there could be two very cheap quarterbacks in great situations. Be fluid in your approach.
- Identify the major value options every week. Especially on Fantasy Aces, I have found those options to be incredibly high owned in cash games, and you don’t want to get locked out of cash because everyone has a cheap player that went off.
- Since the scoring only awards half of a point for every reception, consider filling those flex spots with running backs in cash games. This should give you a higher floor of touches.
- In tournaments (also known as GPPs), consider filling your flex spots with wide receivers and even tight ends. You’ll want to build some variance into your lineups to give your team a higher overall ceiling.
- Tournaments also allow for you to lock in stacks using two different quarterbacks, maybe even two super-stacks (quarterback and two receiving options) for maximum variance!
