This Week in DFS February 4th – February 11th

This Week in DFS is a weekly feature highlighting anything newsworthy in the DFS community.  Have any DFS tweets or articles you think should be included?  We’d love to see them.  Tweet them at @AwesemoDFS and @Awesemo_com using #ThisWeekinDFS.   

Super Bowl LI didn’t disappoint with the largest offensive output of any Super Bowl ever.  The Eagles prevailed over the Patriots, despite Brady’s big performance, but the big winner of the night was the world’s most contrarian dude.

Until he wasn’t.

The long wait until Week 1 now begins…

The NBA controversy of the week was, of course, #SmoothieKingGate, the “rainout” caused by a leak in the Pelican’s Arena.

DFS Twitter was not pleased.

Some blamed the sites.

And at least one of them obliged.

While others directed their anger elsewhere.

But we all know who the real culprit was.

The days that followed had DFS’ers a little on edge.

But the silver-lining in all of this was that DFS Twitter was finally able to agree on something.

The world fell in love with Cedi Osman for a night.  I have a feeling he may be a one-hit wonder.  But just in case, a PSA for all you DFS touts.

February 9th was historic in the number of revenge games taking place.  I generally don’t give credence to narratives but they’re the one exception.  Some, however, may have gone a tad overboard.

Finally, if you’re looking for the deal of a lifetime.

Big week ahead with Tiger back on the course and Daytona 500 on Sunday.  Until next time!

Tweet your favorite DFS-related tweets to @AwesemoDFS and @Awesemo_com using #ThisWeekinDFS.
