Have you even been to an almost empty SoFi stadium?  In this house, it’s all about football, even coaching my sons flag football team – this was the big game at SoFi stadium.  We won 20-0 and went 10-0 that season.  He’s a Chiefs fan and I’m a NY Giants fan.  With Draft Ops, we’ve combined our love of football and math to bring you the best possible stats, analysis and predictions for Daily Fantasy Football fanatics for DraftKings, FanDuel or any other DFS platform.  We provide you with only the stats, analysis and predictions by prizes on DraftKings or FanDuel.


Draft Ops provides Daily Fantasy Football fans that play on DraftKings or FanDuel with the necessary stats, analysis and projections to play on for the Showdown (Prime Time Football Games – Thursday, Sunday and Monday Night) or the Mega Millionaire Prize (Typically 12 games).  We sort of the NFL stats and provide you with the stats you need and no more.  Our NFL stats analysis includes player usage percentage, rank variance of the defense vs, the offense, a double duty report that shows the stats for RB’s that have a role in the running and of course running game – that’s our granddaddy of them all, a projections report based on the player usage percentage and what the defense gives up and much more.  We break down the game to every detail, take total yards, we then break down by passing, running and receiving.



You gotta love NFL games and the Rams or Chargers games at SoFi are awesome to be at.  While there, I'm always thinking of my stats, analysis and predictions, and DFS does make the football game even more exciting.
