Edmonton Oilers left wing Taylor Hall

Adam Markowitz already gave you a great set of picks for today—but if you're anything like me you sometimes like to throw an alt-lineup into one of the FanDuel tourneys ... especially the ones that allow multiple entries. Consider this a Sports Jerks alt-lineup. It's kind of like Pink Floyd without Roger Waters or Van Halen without David Lee...

Philadelphia Flyers forward Claude Giroux

I'm back again, somewhat  riding a nice little wave of non-failure. Zack Kassian has been my personal FanDuel hero and has kept these picks respectable. Again, I looked at "important minutes" when crafting the following team. Power play ice time is my tie breaker when I'm down to two players at any given position. LW: Zack Kassian $4,500. As long...

Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice

Economic panics collapse economies, often starting with well-coiffed business people hurling themselves out of 19th story windows in downtown financial districts. That's probably an overreaction to the coming Ray Rice Panic of 2013. But it’s coming, and you should get ahead of the whole anxiety-driven thing this offseason. And if you absolutely must throw yourself out of a window, do...

Edmonton Oilers left wing Taylor Hall

After a rough start in my FanDueling experiment I somewhat righted the ship on Monday with players like Zack Kassian coming through for me with 4.8 fantasy points. Today I turn my attention to players who get "important minutes" or power play ice time. If I'm torn between two players I'll take the player who sees more power play...

Boston Bruins left wing Milan Lucic

I won't pee on your shoes and tell you it's raining. Yesterday was a rough day down at FanDuel. Claude Giroux and Sidney Crosby combined for a whopping 0.12 fraction of a fantasy point. When your two expensive studs lay an egg so horrendously rancid you move on, question whether there is a God who truly loves you, and...

Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury

For most people, Week One was a roller-coaster of emotions. If you stockpiled San Jose Sharks on your squad, you probably have a big lead going into this last day. If you relied on goalies like Jon Quick, Henrik Lundqvist, Jimmy Howard, Mike Smith or Cam Ward (all Tier One goalies, mind you), then you're probably in a world of...

Vancouver Canucks right wing Zack Kassian

At Sports Jerks we've found an increasing interest in daily fantasy hockey. To meet that demand we will roll out your best FanDuel picks every day for the rest of the season. There are some great tournaments over at FanDuel, or you can create your own head to head match ups. The picks below represent games starting at 3pm...

goalie Pekka Rinne

Welcome to the first of my weekly posts for the guys here at Sports Jerks! In these posts, I will be covering what you need to know for the upcoming week in fantasy hockey in reference to Head-To-Head leagues. It seems to me a lot of people are trying fantasy hockey for the first time this year because of both...
