Fantasy Football: Week 4 Staking Bales Results + Promo
At 4for4, I posted my Week 4 daily fantasy results:
It was almost a big one. Heading into Monday night’s Saints-Dolphins matchup, I was set for some big cashes in a few different daily fantasy tournaments, most notably StarStreet’s Playboy Championship Qualifier. If you recall from last week, I won a $109 entry ticket into the tournament in Week 3. I was matched up against 149 other lineups, the winner receiving an all-expenses paid trip to the Playboy Mansion for StarStreet’s $250K championship in December.
After the 1pm games, things were looking great. I was bullish on running backs Matt Forte and Jamaal Charles, as well as receivers Antonio Brown and Reggie Wayne—all of whom had quality games. I would go as far as to say I was the favorite about three hours into the week.
Despite awesome efforts from Wes Welker and Kenbrell Thompkins, I was in third place by the time the Monday night game rolled around. With no one left to play, the Playboy Mansion dream was dead, at least for this week, but it was still looking like fourth place and a $300 cash was realistic.
Then Drew Brees, Darren Sproles, and Jimmy Graham happened. I had some exposure to Sproles and Graham elsewhere, so they didn’t completely ruin me, but their play caused me to eventually drop down to 8th out of 150.
I won a $69 qualifying ticket for my effort, so I’ll be doing the exact same thing in Week 5. I’m probably like 99 percent to take it down this time around.
Week 4 Profits
All in all, it wasn’t a bad week. I was really close to profiting $500+, but that’s the nature of the game sometimes. Here’s how it all turned out.
