XN Sports is introducing a new daily fantasy site called Victiv, which has one of the best features in all of daily fantasy, in addition to a sleek design, and a few ways to play daily fantasy football.
After you have signed up, be sure to take on Victron. This is Victiv’s computer, and if you beat it, you can win cash prizes. This is yet another way to play daily fantasy football, so try Victiv today..
On Victiv, you are given $50,000 in cap space to play a lineup composed of a quarterback, two running backs, two wide receivers, a tight end, two FLEX, and a defense/special teams. The scoring is a regular half-point PPR scoring system, which can be found in detail on the site.
How can we beat Victron, other players and win real money? First, sign up for Victiv here.
Second, take a look at XN Sports’ plays and lineup for Victiv for this weekend’s slate in fantasy football:
Ryan Fitzpatrick, Houston Texans $3,900
This play is purely based on price. Fitzpatrick is over three times cheaper than some of the top options like Andrew Luck and Aaron Rodgers. Fitzpatrick doesn’t have an excellent matchup, and was benched for a rookie quarterback, but at $3,900 he is hard to pass up. At that price, he would only need to score one touchdown to reach value, and the Titans have allowed a touchdown pass in all but one game this season. With Fitzpatrick on your teams, you will have the ability to add some top-tier players at other positions. If you need another reason to start him, Fitzpatrick is cheaper than 10 defenses.
Latavius Murray, Oakland Raiders $3,900 (if he is active)
This is another price play, as it gives you a top option at running back for his team, and gives you plenty of flexibility to use for the rest of your team. Murray is a freak of an athlete just waiting for his chance, and if it weren’t for a concussion last week, he may have run for 200 yards. If he is cleared to play, start him at just $3,900 against the Rams, who allowed 21 fantasy points to the Chargers’ running backs last week.
DeAndre Hopkins, Houston Texans $5,000
Hopkins is an easy stack with Fitzpatrick, but being priced at $400 more than Andre Johnson will cause some to choose Johnson over Hopkins, but read into it a bit deeper. According to RotoViz’ Game Splits App, Hopkins is at his best with Fitzpatrick under center. In 10 games with Fitzpatrick, Hopkins has a 74/1150/6 pace (catches/yards/touchdowns) but without Fitzpatrick, Hopkins has 17 games with a 54/834/2 pace. That’s a significant difference, and well worth a stack with Fitzpatrick for a combined price of $8,900, or the same price as Demaryius Thomas, who you can afford with these two in your lineup.
Charles Clay, Miami Dolphins $2,700
Clay is just $700 over the minimum on Victiv, but has the best remaining matchup against tight ends. The Jets have allowed 10.6 fantasy points per game to tight ends (per ESPN.com), which is the second-most in the NFL behind only the Bears. With Clay catching 17 passes in his last three games, he is a safe pick for his price against one of the worst defenses at defending the tight end. Fortunately, with the other values in this lineup, if you want to spend at tight end, you can.
