Dummy Grid 12.22

JMToWin is a high-stakes tournament champion (Thunderdome, Luxury Box, Game Changer, Wildcat) who is focusing this year on single-entry/three-entry max


OWS Fam ::

This is not a complete list of all the good plays on the slate

This is, instead, a look at the player pool I’ll be fishing


The Grid ::

Bottom-Up Build

:: covered in-depth in the Angles Pod (it’s highly recommended that you listen to the breakdown of the roster in order to see the thinking behind it, and in order to understand what we’re talking about when we look at a “bottom-up build”)

Blue Chips

:: my “Tier 1” plays: the plays I feel confident leaning into across different types of builds; these players have a high ceiling and a low likelihood of price-considered failure

Build-Arounds

:: games, offenses, situations, or scenarios I’ll be looking to build around across my rosters

Building Blocks

:: unique player pairings that can be used as foundational building blocks for tournament rosters

Bonuses

:: players who don’t fit into the categories above — either Upside pieces who don’t have the floor to be Blue Chips (and are not being focused on within my game-focused builds) or players who may not have a strong shot at ceiling, but are worth keeping in mind from a “role” perspective

Blue Chips

Patrick Mahomes

We’ll touch on some of the Mahomes pairings I like in the Building Blocks, but this one is pretty simple: KC tops the NFL in pass rate over expectation and is playing a Rams team that ranks fifth in DVOA against the run and 26th against the pass. You probably don’t need me to tell you that Mahomes is a Blue Chip. He carries the best floor/ceiling combo at the QB position this week.

Story:

“Bucs come off the bye and turn their yards into TDs”

Why It Works:

No one wants to play the Bucs anymore. Everyone on this list is carrying an ownership projection of 5% or lower.

How It Works:

The Bucs rank top five in passing yards per game, while the Browns rank bottom three in defensive DVOA and points allowed per game. The issue for the Bucs this year has been an inability to turn their yards into points…but this week, they are coming off the bye, and are taking on a soft defense in the Browns. You should mix this into your large-field play. And I’ll be considering this one (and variations of this one) on my tighter builds, including on my Main.

In this game, I also like Rachaad White, Chris Godwin, Amari Cooper, and David Njoku. I’ll comfortably play White outside of game-focused builds, while the Browns pieces will largely be confined to rosters of mine that bet on this game environment.

POTENTIAL DOWNSIDE:

The story plays out differently, and you don’t get first place — which is really all that matters.

If Building For Single-Entry // Three-Entry Max

This is my narrowest pool, which means it’s the pool likeliest to change a bit as I move deeper into builds. If it changes throughout Saturday night, I’ll add an update in this space.

If I were building for single-entry // three-entry Max, my tightened-up player pool would be:

QB ::

Tom Brady || Joe Burrow || Kyler Murray || Justin Herbert || Derek Carr || Geno Smith || Patrick Mahomes
