@FF_Contrarian Would you be willing to write up/ share some of your process or what you learned for these plays of the week? Or how you may have honed your research skills over the year/s?
I was so impressed by some of these suggestions. Zach Zenner, week 17, Cardinals, and Patriots D, marquise Lee, as just under the chalk plays that turned into home runs... im guessing there were plenty of lessons learned from people you did not play etc. be exciting to learn how you found success on this endeavor
thanks for the tips as always

To start with, I can't say enough about the tremendous tools that FantasyLabs provided. That's not a surprise with the minds they have there. Bales is awesome, and then they work with some of the top DFS guys in the world.
So I spent a decent amount of time with their tools each week, some early in the week to get a feel of plays I might want to use, and then I'd come back to it again later in the week and narrow down the choices.
I also did a lot of work with our Weekly Projection Machine. (We also have a weekly internal contest for PM results, which creates accountability and fosters competition.) The PM is a ridiculously good tool. Beyond the natural competitiveness of wanting to perform well in the contests and the important goal of providing good content to the site, using these different tools also helped in setting lineups for my seasonal teams.
The players who showed up well in the FL tools and in the PM (and GLSP) frequently performed quite well.
Any time you come out ahead against such a strong group of minds, it's important to realize that one of the key elements was likely luck. But I do think these are tremendous tools, and I do recommend that subscribers at least occasionally use the public version of the PM for themselves. It has a crazy amount of information and really helps in the process of making strong weekly selections.
