3 Hot Tips To Help You Win Your Next Daily Fantasy Football League

3 Hot Tips To Help You Win Your Next Daily Fantasy Football League

Fantasy football has become a daily activity for many during the football season. For those who are unfamiliar with the concept, essentially, you are the manager and coach of your fantasy football team. You can opt to draft pick your team players or you can opt for auto draft of your players.

Whether you are one who chooses to pick your own players or one who chooses to have your players picked for you, you have to follow football games on a daily basis to keep up with scores and performances of each player. The players on your team may or may not be from the same team, thus you are paying attention to all of the football teams, rather than just your favorite team. Beginners to the fantasy football league often select the auto pick option, but that’s not necessarily the best choice if your goal is to win every single week. Looking for a bit of help? Here are three hot tips to help you win your next daily fantasy football league.

1. Understand the Scoring

According to the Daily Fantasy site at Reviewster, this tip might be the most important when it comes to winning your daily fantasy football league. Every site has a different scoring method, and while they’re a bit similar in nature, there are some notable differences. To optimize your chances of winning, you must know where those differences lie. For example, on some fantasy football sites, receptions are worth 1 point, while on others, you’re only ever going to see a half point gain for every reception your players make. Another example is that a passing touchdown on some sites is worth 6 points, while it is only worth 4 points on other sites. The ability to spot simple differences like these means you know which players are going to give you the most strength for a given site, and you can start building your team from a strategic perspective..

2. Pay Close Attention to Your QB and WR

This is a very important tip posted on Yahoo, to seeing success with your fantasy football team. Obviously, you don’t want to choose your QB or WR randomly. You can choose your favorite QB and then choose your favorite WR based on individual stats, which is what many people do. However, the better strategy is to choose your favorite QB, based on performance, then choose his favorite WR. Doing this will increase the chances that your QB and WR will perform well together for your league and help you see those high win numbers you really want.

3. Go On Bargain Hunts for Sleepers

Something that people don’t realize is that fantasy football sites often take their time to update the players’ salaries. This can work to your advantage if you look for bargain players. The simple reality is that you don’t have an unlimited budget, and if you have to take a budget hit somewhere, you don’t want it to be on your key players. A good bargain hunt can help.

The best players in the world of bargain hunting? Those coming back in after having had injuries. You can also look for players who have been turning up their game over the last few days or players who have been stepping in for the injured players who have not been given a salary increase yet. Chances are, you will be getting a great player for less money. Those guys who haven’t quite hit that big spotlight best are always going to be a cheaper choice, and they allow you to use more of your budget for the the players who are consistently solid from week to week to week.

If you want to make sure that you have the winning team in your fantasy football league, you must know and understand the scoring system used on the site or sites you are involved in, choose a QB and a WR who work in sync together, and pay attention to players who are not in the spotlight so that you can use your fantasy football money wisely. You’re out there looking for that big win, and it really can be as simple as following these tips!

11 Google Chrome Apps and Features to Help You Get More Done with Less Effort

11 Google Chrome Apps and Features to Help You Get More Done with Less Effort

In today’s fast-paced and never-ending busy world, we are overwhelmed by tasks that need to be completed by tight deadlines. With so much technology it is difficult to find the right tools to help boost our efficiency. And, many tools get obsolete so its essential to stay up-to-date to know when you will have to make adjustments to these tools. Independently of where you work, there’s a good chance that you have to be working on a PC or a laptop.

Do you are feel like you do not have enough time, or cannot accomplish much as of late? It is recommended to take a step back and look at the big picture. Also, you want to explore new and innovative ways to improve productivity.

In this article, I outline 11 features and apps within the Chrome browser that can help you do just that.

Minimizing Tabs

Let’s face it we all have more than a dozen tabs opened on our computers. One neat trick to still keep most of them open is to turn them into pinned tabs. On Google Chrome you can right-click the tab and select “Pin Tab” option. This turns the tab into an icon enabling you to continue multitasking.

Pinning a tab anchors the tabs on the left of your toolbar; a great benefit of the “Pin Tab” feature is that you can’t close these tabs accidentally since the “X” disappears after pinning them.

Incognito Mode

Google Chrome is a very easy-to-use and intuitive. But, Google does collect our browsing data; so to remedy this, you can use Incognito Mode. This feature does not keep your browsing or download history. You can enable or access it in three different ways:

  1. Press Ctrl/Command+shift+N
  2. Select File Menu and choose New Incognito Window
  3. Download extension New Incognito Window

This feature is very handy if you’d rather not have your browsing history stored and utilized for future advertisement or suggested pages.

Save Webpages as PDF Files

Have you ever browsed interesting or important information and then forgot to bookmark or save it in “favorites”, making it impossible to find again? Chances are you have done this on a number of occasions.

Thankfully, there is an easy solution. You can save webpages as PDF files. On your keyboard, press control/command+p and you will be able to save webpages as PDFs.

Open Recently-closed Tabs

Ever had dozens of tabs opened and all of a sudden your browser shuts down? It has probably happened to all of us. You can easily recover all of your tabs using two approaches. Don’t panic if this happens because there is a workaround and solution for it.

One is by pressing Ctrl/CMD+Shift+T.

The other approach is to click on the three vertical dots on your browser and hover over “History”.

Solve Mathematical Problems

Google’s Chrome browser doesn’t just search for relevant and updated information. It is also capable of performing some mathematical problems. Within the omnibox (Chrome’s address or URL bar), you can perform mathematical exercises.

For example, if you are struggling with percentages you can search 20 percent of x amount and it will instantly provide a result. Pretty handy, right?!

Play Media Files

Are you frequently met with difficulties when playing or watch a video files? Well, once again Chrome comes to the rescue. You can can listen or play videos from all sorts of movie or music files (mp3, mp4, .mov, .mkv, .ogv, .webm, .wav, etc.) by simply dragging the file into the search bar.

In addition, you can view images, PDF files and Microsoft Office files, too.

Navigate Swiftly Between Tabs

With all of those tabs opened comes great navigation responsibilities. Rather than clicking through every tab, you can use shortcut keys like Ctrl+Tab to navigate all of the different tabs. Also, you are able to navigate to the first tab by pressing Ctrl-1, Ctrl-2, and so on. If you want to switch to the very last tab, press Ctrl-9.

Stay Focus(e)d

Computers nowadays have awesome capabilities.

Sometimes we like to get work done, but let’s face it, we’re all human. We sometimes procrastinate by visiting a website we really like, or maybe take a break with watching a flick on Netflix, a video on YouTube or browsing Facebook.

With Chrome’s StayFocusd extension, you can truly stay focused and get more done in less time.

This extension naturally helps you stay more productive by limiting the amount of time you spend on websites. You can set the time and it will automatically block those sites after a certain period.

Grammarly for Editing

Grammarly is a must have, and it’s really a complete powerhouse. Grammarly helps you check your grammar and spelling for everything you write online.

You can use it professionally or as a student, which will make the editing process much easier and more efficient. Furthermore, it can automatically check for typos when you send an email, type a Tweet, or post a Facebook comment. It’s like having your own personal copyeditor!

Loom

There are times that words in an email or written text in a chat app will just not convey the right meaning.

There is a saying that a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, the same is true of videos.

With Loom, you can capture, narrate and immediately share video recordings of your screen, which will help coworkers understand issues you are facing, or to easily convey an explanation on screen. Plus, with video you will be able to easily walk people through a process, and you can use it to create simple how-to videos.

Chrome Calendar Extension

No matter what your level of responsibility is at your job, Google Calendar is another essential resource to have at your fingertips.

Specifically, you can have this extension added as an icon in the toolbar of your browser, which I highly recommend. Once you add the extension to your browser, you can check for upcoming events with a single click without leaving your current page.

Final Thoughts

Google Chrome has definitely evolved from its inception. As you can see you have a very powerful tool that comes as a free installation and is loaded with dozens of capabilities. The above listed Chrome apps can resolve some of the most common obstacles to your time management and productivity.
