NFL DFS Pace of Play for Super Bowl LVII (Fantasy Football)
In a one game sample size, the possibilities feel endless when you start considering how this game will play out between the Eagles and Chiefs. All of our preconceived notions of these teams and our player evaluations come to the forefront but ultimately this comes down to roster construction. I personally play in large field tournaments at this point in the season and had good success in the Conference Championship identifying leverage points from our Roster Percentage report.

Overarching Pace Thoughts
Diving deeper into the pace of play gives the prospective DFS player an opportunity to consider not just Vegas totals but how the game will be played out in a given week. Game flow is a tricky rabbit hole to jump down when you consider the endless scenarios that can play out in a game. Stacking up-tempo offenses who can keep the ball moving is crucial to gaining an edge in DFS. For every 5 seconds difference in terms of per play, a team runs 15 more plays per game. In the DFS world, that’s a massive difference considering volume is king.
