Getty Marquise Goodwin is a sneaky start this week. VIDEOTo win big money in daily fantasy, you have to veer slightly off the path. It’s the contrarian and high-risk picks that make millionaires, but there’s real data behind those selections. Below are three guys you can grab for cheap in DFS for Week 6. Each of them play for “bad” teams, but each could perform at a high level this week on the cheap.
It’s very simple for Colombia. Get a win in Lima Tuesday night, and punch a ticket to Russia next year. Lose, and watch the World Cup on television. Colombia have 25 points in the CONMEBOL standings, just one point ahead of Peru heading into the final day of qualifying. Peru have streaked themselves into the World Cup picture, winning three of their last four qualifiers. They scraped a draw with stumbling Argentina in their last appearance, shutting out Messi in Buenos Aires.
Mexico is in, Honduras is out. Tuesday night in the final day of CONCACAF World Cup qualifying, one of those things can change. Honduras are sitting at 10 points through nine matches, tied with Panama and two behind USA. If Mexico decide to tinker with their lineup and Honduras steal a win, they could sneak through the backdoor into next year’s World Cup. Mexico have already clinched, but there’s still a mark to set.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
