Daily Fantasy Sports Spreadsheets

Soon...

I will post a link the Google Drive folders where you can find DFS spreadsheets for NASCAR, NFL, NBA, MLB, and Golf.

DFSnotes.com Hiatus

We're busy working at other Daily Fantasy Sports websites. This place will sit dormant for a little while, but as always, it will be back eventually when there is a need. The reality is that working full time job, running a website, producing all of the content, and working for two other DFS websites is too much. This site does not generate income and is a hobby, so it will go to sleep for a little while.

If you want Daily Fantasy Sports content, then come over to:

Whats In A Name?

College football season kicks off in full force tomorrow. How much I will pay attention depends on how well Tennessee does, thus getting on TV and where I might find a decent bar in ACCland to watch the game.  I'm already dreading basketball season, but..thank God for hockey.

With that in mind, I had some of my favorite college mascots rolling through my head.

But first. What makes a good mascot anyway?

It's Called History...And Some People Pay Attention To It

So Colin Kaepernick didn't stand up for the National Anthem before Saturday's game...And I care why? Yeah, it really only proves my point about how Gabby Douglas shouldn't have gotten the shit she did, while our NFL stars get away with disrespecting the flag all the time.  I go have some qualms with Jemele Hill's comparison and presumed lack of understanding about Muhammad Ali. Cause I'm pretty sure I do understand...it's pretty clear

You....Do....Do...What??

I'm all about your job being something easy to explain. Typically I've had jobs where an elevator speech was unnecessary. One word pretty much summed it up. Teacher......Librarian..... you get the point. Saturday morning I wake up in pretty good shape, so I figure I'll be able to handle the noise of the TV without it murdering my head...#nohangover. Cartoons were a bit outta my realm, and I couldn't stand watching another "wife kills husband-husband's mistress kills wife" thing on one of the thousand basic cable channels that show that stuff on a loop.  ESPN seemed like a good choice..since I'd seen all the baseball highlights from Friday night's games on the MLB network.

It's College......

Last week the President of the University of Chicago made waves be declaring his school free of safe places, and trigger warnings. Oddly enough, the conservative world jumped up and down.Not wanting to be out done, the liberal world jumped even higher.

There Is A Special Place For These People

The Book Matthew, which I am currently reading, talks about casting judgement, to the effect of "don't judge or you will be judged" Still as I read this, I have to know in my heart of hearts, there is a special place for certain people.

Welcome Me Back!

Well sports fans! Did you miss me? New job, and a new town took me on vacation, sending me to Orlando for a nice long sitting spell in a hotel conference room. So here are a few reflections on things I noticed when I was gone.

First and foremost. The dive bar scene in Orlando, Florida....not bad. In fact..Great

So Much Room For Activities

Apparently there has been a great rift in the men's fashion world about cargo pants, and the bastards didn't ask me to weight in. Just notify my next of kin, this wheel shall explode...

Personally, I like cargo shorts and I use them. Guys have shit they carry. "What in the world could you possibly carry that you need two who extra pockets?" you're not asking yourself. Friends, I have lived out of what you can carry in a pair of cargo pants/shorts for a week.  Ask Race. He's seen it. Couple pairs of underwear, and a shirt or two in the one side. Toothbrush, toothpaste, book, maybe some soap in the other. Sandals cut down on the need for shocks, but if its winter you can fit a pair in. Plus even when I'm not living out of them, I hate sitting on my wallet, so I have that. My chiropractor told me once, never sit on you wall..ever....We have have bad poster anyway, why add a 5 inch wedge? And my new smartphone too...And skoal cans and a lighter...you never know when you need a lighter...and hell sometimes a book.

Really though folks, why are we wasting time on this issue anyway? Who is really worried about what guys wear?

I'm not, and this might not even see the light of day, but it does beg the question?

Check out Mike D on Facebook or mikedsbbq.com

What do cargo pants say about me?

I've been told, even before these articles, that they make me look bad..too frumpy...not form fitting enough. To which I reply "Do you really want to see my form?"

"Cargo pants and shorts are for old men!" she said
"Old men wear clothes for function" I said
"You not old"
"I feel old"
That got a roll of the eyes.

This chick did give me a lot of shit about what I wore and how rumpled I looked. I gave her a lot of something, but I can't really say that here...even if it is the fringes of the DFS world....hint though it has four letter and.......oh...you thought I was gonna say it...pervs. She wanted me to dress will and be pressed...I typically dress ok, but rarely am pressed, so who do you this won that battle????

Guys are going to wear what they want to wear. No amount of chiding from women is going to really change that. Sure they can with hold sex, or make you sleep on the couch...but that's childish, and any women that would do that over some cargo pants ain't worth keeping around. Dump the broad! Yesterday!

My mind tells me cargo pants on a dude....who uses them...means hes ready to do bidness. He's got tools or a phone or a wallet in there and he is going to use that stuff. Get outta his way...he's got shit to do

Mike D's BBQ Bloody Mary

I'm not a bloody mary guy. Mimosa are my thing. The LAeX was a bloody mary drinker, but I like my clear liquor from a jar. Preferably made in Franklin County, Virginia. Besides, you're hungover, and drinking a drink with something sticking out of the glass is dangerous. Ta hell with that noise

That's not to say I've not tried a Mike D's BBQ Blood Marytm

Ingrediance 
Vodka..if you're a redneck like me use moonshine..not that shit you buy in the store either
Mike D's BBQ Sauce 
Lemons
Celery  
Olives
Ice

Preperation..we're making this easy...you're hungover remember
Pour however much vodka in a glass
Top off with Mike D's BBQ Sauce
Put olives in
Save lemon for later...you're hungover. Knife work is dangerous
Tear celery off stalk 
Stick celery in drink
Mix that stuff up
Add ice...if you're an ambitious type

This Is Just Wrong!

The 2016 Olympics have already proven to be some what of a dud from the scarenews point of view. No Zika...that we know of..nothing serious. So what do we have to stir the pot???

Gabby Douglas didn't put her hand over her heart for the national anthem.........

If you can't tell where this is going I'll spill the beans and tell you that I think this is...wait for it...crap!

Why The Rest Just Suck

Whatever channel I have on my cable box that keeps showing rodeo...I love. I can't really tell because I don't pay attention to the commercials so I'm not sure were I should driect my praise. But it has led me to this conclusion

Rodeo is the best sport ever, and the rest just....suck.

What Is This Noise?!?!?!?

Maybe it's because I've spent a shitload of time on the road, or that I've discovered this thing called ITB which an odd number of devotees of listen to country music, but what the hell has happen to country music?

My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys....But Really?

Rodeo, besides baseball, is one of my favorite sports to watch on TV. Without cable, this isn't easy. Since my new crib has cable, I was watching some rodeo from somewhere before work. What I saw has been on my brain since.

Daily Fantasy NASCAR Xfinity Spotlight - Mid Ohio: Stanton Barrett


Sign up to play Daily Fantasy NASCAR at RaceDayScore.com and make a deposit using the code: DFSNOTES and they'll match your deposit 100%. 

Not only does he look like a road racer, he drives like one. Technically, he's not a road racer, but he's a stunt car driver and the son of a stunt car driver (plus, the godson of Paul Newman). Barrett's average running position last week at Watkins Glen was 19th. that's not bad for a lower tier driver at RaceDayScore.com. This week, Barrett will be in different equipment, but it's not as if he was in exceptional equipment last weekend. He's not a road course ringer, but he has more stock car road race experience than 95% of the field.

DFS Homer Picks 8.5.16

What's yellow on the outside and white in the middle? Twinkies you perv!!!!....Dozier homered and I mentioned him by name..it's a win....deal with it 24-20

Looking at the match ups tonight is like watching a Pat McCory campaign commercial....it's just a whole lot of bullshit trying to be polished to a high buff....talk about a dumpster burning, shit show.

DFS Homer Picks 8.4.16

Napoli went oli the way in on the Cuyahoga last night so I'm taking the win 23-20

I'm throwing a stack to the Twins tonight.  Max Kepler, Brian "Bull" Dozier and Eduardo "Pablo's Not Here" Escobar are all in the homerun leader boards. Escobar will be likely hitting right handed and the only thing worse that Mike Clevinger's numbers against righties are his numbers against lefties..........(I'll let that one sink in). Run with the Twinkies tonight. Obviously my bet is on them......(again..let that one stew)

Big Popi is likely a good pick tonight save his price.  I double, nay triple checked Ariel Miranda's numbers and they're as ugly as a mud fence. 13.50 ERA, 2 IP 2.00 WHIP and 4 SO. Miranda might seriously want to reconsider that 90 miles...........(you're not going to get that joke...and I'm not explaining it) He's new, sure! And I'd have the same numbers if I just got to the bigs too...still if you're trying to win, Ortez is a good pick.

Daily Fantasy NASCAR - Pit Times Spreadsheet 2016


DFS Homer Picks 8.3.16

The White Sox/Tiggers (yeah I know there are two g's there) game produced 5 homers...it's a win for me 22-20. 

For this evening, first ponder Mike Napoli. He's homered in three of the last three, plus he's facing a Tyler Duffey that has been taken to the woodshed his last two starts.  If Duffy lasts that long Napoli with have a crack or two to make it four in a row.

Mitch Moreland, looks like a interesting pick as well.  He's been warming up and frankly the match-up against Kevin Gausman is a good one.

Shit-show of the evening......St. Lew and THE Ohio Redlegs.  Pham has been smacking the ball when they need him. Just about all the offense the Redbirds have been producing has come from his bat, so give him a look. If nothing else it's a value play...prolly..

Check out Mike D's BBQ! Official BBQ Sauce of DFS Notes

Michael Vick..Better PETA Spokesman or Quarterback?

Michael Vick doesn't think too much of himself, and that's a damn shame.

I mean really, let's take a look at some stats from some pretty famous rookie seasons





                      COMP%       YDS       TD      INT      RATING
Vick                60.6               371          2          1           79.8
P. Manning     59.8            2,249          9        17            67.9
Brady              64.4            4,770        36         7            102.2


Frankly, I'm not a fan of Michael Vick. I never have been nor will I ever be. He went to Va Tech which put me off right away, then he goes goes pro in the PDFL...Professional Dog Fighting League. We had to hear about him the whole time he played, and now we're having to hear about his lame ass come-back. Please!!!

On the field or off the field he sucked.

So why is Dan Patrick interviewing him? And why the puffballs Dan? Why not get after him about trying to get that one, last, crappy, season in with the Steelers?

Really, I'm not sure why I'm even writing about this. It just ticks me off when guys think they're worth more than they really are! He's not go Hall Of Fame numbers, he's not ranked in the top 10 quarterbacks of all time, and pretty soon he's going to be forgotten as a rushing quarterback.

I could see, and have seen Pete Rose give a similar interview, and rightfully so. Rose at least has a Hall of Fame argument. Vick is just a dead beat, broken down, never-was that thinks he's worth more than he is.

As my ex-father-in-law would say "I'd like to buy him for what he's worth, and sell him for what he thinks he's worth"

DFS Notes Badass Of The Day


This Ranger Roy Sullivan. Sullivan is one of the most storied rangers in National Park Service. He was struck by lightning 7 times over the course of 40 years and lived through every single strike!

Parlor Tricks

We can safely say that most of the DFSers reading this blog don't know what a documentary is. That's ok...yall go back to your coloring books. Snack time is in a bit, and they gave us extra juice boxes. By chance if you aren't of the knuckledragging bred, you might want to check out the documentary FASTBALL on the Netflix. Well made, and pretty interesting, it's worth a watch. Maybe on a night were the slate is slow, or there are nothing but shit show match-ups.
