    ANOTHER ONE: ISlide x NHL Partnership

    After securing NBA, MLB, and NASCAR, we knew the NHL was the next step when presented the opportunity because....well,

    ISlide Fantasy Football: Week 1 Recap; Week 2 Preview

    ISlide Fantasy Football: Week 1 Recap; Week 2 Preview

    Tyler (Weddy Roosevelt) vs. Steve (Dikembe and Devonta) 126 - 92.8


    Tyler picked up the W on the back of Austin Ekeler, who posted a fat 42.4. Tyler could have a challenging few weeks because Joe Mixon should be out. Very disappointing considering Zac Taylor had the Bengals looking like a real offense.
     
    Steve got NOTHING from Sony Michel (1.8). The sheer amount of weapons on the Patriots could make him a riskier option than we thought, and Rex Burkhead actually looked NICE Sunday night, (https://twitter.com/i/status/1170895156205297666). I'd bet on Sony to get most of the goal line carries though, and the Patriots get the Dolphins next week. This would have been uglier if Kyler didn't have a dominant 4th quarter and OT, putting up 238 yards, 2 TD and a completed 2 point conversion. James Conner, OBJ, and OJ Howard should all be better. Steve's an annual playoff contender, he'll be fine. 
     
    Sam Pease (Let's Cook) vs. Paul (Team Butt) 107.2 - 120.3
     
    Paul had a hot Monday, with the Deshaun Watson / Will Fuller combination putting up almost 40. David Johnson looks well worth a top 5 pick, and Tarik Cohen is lowkey super valuable if he remains in the slot, (Full PPR).
     
    I'm devastated. Dalvin Cook and Marlin Mack BOTH went off, (with a combined 54.4), but Jared Goff severely under-performed, and Matt Breida barely showed up. Travis Kelce should have had another TD but instead Mahomes' no-look attempt sailed. I expect Goff to bounce back, and Breida is definitely the starter moving forward after the Coleman Injury. Watch out. 
     
    Alain (Team Tub) vs. Nick (Captain Deadpool) 60.6 - 137.7
     
    Oh Alain. Cam, Aaron Jones, Tyreek, Steelers D, and AB combined to put up 9.2 points. Gonna be tough to win with that. Aaron Jones might have a tough time rushing vs. MIN this week, and we might see a bit of a slide from Team Tub.
    Nick (Autodrafted and didn't set his lineup), put up the THIRD best score of the week. Kamara and Josh Jacobs are studs, (and the Oakland offense doesn't look that bad). It's amazing that Nick's bench may have been more impressive than the starters. Dak, (33.4), Jamison Crowder, (24.3), Terry McLaurin, (26.5), and Chris Conley (21.7) absolutely ate. Nick's team looks deep, But can he find a Tight End? Trey Burton won't cut it. 
     
    Bas (Bout Dat Business) vs. Tori (Meat Eater) 160.7 - 90.2
     
    Bas more than justified my rank for him. Mahomes had 30.2 vs a great Jags secondary. Barkley didn't even go all the way off. Mark Ingram is the lead back of one of the most rush happy teams in the league. Evan Engram is gonna get force fed the ball until the WR core is healthy in NY, and even then he could be the #1 option in the passing game. Not to mention he has DJAX on his bench. I'm scared.
     
    Tori got solid return from her Top 5 pick Le'Veon, who is going to get TOUCHES. Especially now that Darnold is out because of mono, (sup). Big Ben had no idea what to do with the Patriots secondary and Devonta Freeman was up against MIN. Hopefully he looks more like himself, and can stay on the field. 
     
    Luke (Coach's Kryptonite) vs. Shannon/Becky (Women Who Score) 185.4 - 147.4
     
    #1 this week was Luke, and sheeeeeeeeeesh this team is good. McCaffrey was on the field for every offensive snap, and he made the most of each touch. Carson is similar to Ingram, in that he's going to run a LOT. I expect consistent 15-20 point weeks from him. Fat upside at WR with Amari and Ridley. It might be tough to beat Luke this year, but at least you're all welcome to join me on the beachfront property I own in his brain. Coach's kryptonite? We all know my real kryptonite is a big bag of cotton candy grapes. 
     
    Becky and Shannon put up 147.4 with Miles Sanders, Mike Evans, their defense and kicker combining for 9.5. Sammy Watkins is unbelievable and will pipe without Reek in there. Kittle will be better. Nuk looked amazing. Don't sleep! THEY'RE GETTING MELVIN BACK AT SOME POINT
     
    Tom (Boston Skreets) vs. Shane (2 Gurley's 1 Cup) 116.7 - 137
     
    Shane looks dangerous and didn't get a full workload from Zeke. Alshon, Gallup, and Hollywood Brown on the bench all put up at least 22. Look out for Hurns this year in a new look Dallas offense run by Kellen Moore. I'm not sure he can rely on almost 20 from Emmanuel Sanders/ week, considering Joe Flacco can barely move. Rooting for Broncos -5.5 was one of most painful things I've done this year.  Good thing he's deep at WR.
     
    Good but not good enough for Tom. David Montgomery clearly looked like the best option in the Chicago backfield, but he didn't get the carries (6) he needed to put up real points. AJ Green and Golden Tate are just hanging on the bench. Hopefully AB can boost Brady's points enough to get him through the injuries, (Guice too).
     
     
    Aashil (Juju on the Beat) vs. Jordan (Bear Force One) 115.5 - 83.9
     
    Aashil rolled Jordan, but Malcolm Brown might vulture Gurley's TD's consistently, and he looks dangerously thin at RB. Hunter Henry going down is brutal. Let's hope for Aashil's sake that Mark Andrews' chemistry with Lamar Jackson is real. 
    Jordan might have joined the Alain tier. Fournette loses Foles and I'm sure more teams will start stacking the box. Tevin Coleman is week to week after suffering from a high ankle sprain. Rodgers will have to look more like Rodgers for Jordan to stick around. 
     
    Bets of the Week:
    Last Week - 3/5
    Parlay of Ravens spread (-7) and Chiefs Spread (-4) +270 YUP
    Packers Moneyline +145 YUP 
    Lions Spread (-3) EVEN
    Pats Spread (-6) -110 YUP
    Texans Moneyline +240 
    ABSOLUTELY SHOULD BE 5-0. LIONS HAD THE GAME. THEY ACTUALLY GOT THE FIRST DOWN. HOW. DO. YOU. CALL. THAT. TIMEOUT. 
    Kinda mad about Texans Moneyline but you can't give Brees that much time. *Sigh*
     
    THIS WEEK:
    Panthers -6.5 (-110)
    Cowboys -6 (-115)
    Bears -3 and Chargers ML Parley (+250)
    Colts Moneyline (+155)
    Patriots -19.5 (-110) 

    ISlide Fantasy Football: Post Draft Recap

    ESPN's Post Draft Ranks

    1. Bas
    2. Becky/Shannon
    3. Nick
    4. Tori
    5. Shane
    6. Aashil
    7. Paul
    8. Luke
    9. Alain
    10. Jordan
    11. Steve
    12. Tom
    13. Me
    14. Tyler

    Not sure how ESPN creates these rankings, but if you told me they throw our team names into a random list generator i'd believe it. 

    Becky/Shannon I like your team but you auto-drafted and ended up with Melvin Gordon who I don't think plays this year. Nick was full auto-draft and actually has a p solid team, but also ended up with someone named Terry McLaurin (WR on the Redskins). Never heard of him. Just for that I don't think a top 3 rank is deserved. 
    Alain has Antonio Brown so he should be last, (Boomin), by default. He also drafted Cam a bit early and it's possible his season is cut short because he needs shoulder surgery. You hate to see it.
    My personal 3 favorite rosters are mine, Paul's, and Bas'. If Bas finds another reliable WR he'll be in BUSINESS. Some high upside guys on the bench. Paul has Chubb (I'm on record saying he could finish the year as the #1 fantasy RB), and an elite TE, (Ertz). I think it's important to have an elite TE in deep leagues, as more people will be looking to churn that spot on their roster. 
    My team absolutely pipes. LOVE that ESPN put me 13. Haters make you famous. 
    My Ranks - I took these very seriously and invested a whole 5 minutes into looking at all the rosters. 
    1. Me
    2. Bas
    3. Paul
    4. Steve
    5. Luke
    6. Shane
    7. Aashil
    8. Tyler
    9. Tom
    10. Nick
    11. Becky/Shannon
    12. Tori
    13. Jordan
    14. Alain
    I think most of the teams are even though, and probably make up 2 tiers. 
    Enjoy GB x CHI tonight, and good luck this year!
    My bets of the week:
    Parlay of Ravens spread (-7) and Chiefs Spread (-4) +270
    Packers Moneyline +145

    ISlide x Los Pollos Collection Sells Out in Hours

    Our most recent collection with eSports gamer, Los Pollos, has sold out in all sizes and colors.

    After collaborating in 2018, we teamed up with Los Pollos again, to offer another collection of designs on limited edition colorways. 

    In the first 3 hours, over 200 pairs were purchased and we were beginning to worry if we would sell out before the end of the sale. BUT! Because we like to see as many people as possible have the opportunity to own a pair of ISlides, we hit up Los Pollos to see if he wanted to add another design on a special colorway for the last few hours of the sale. 

     

    At the end of the sale, we had released a total of 8 designs with two of them being super limited edition, having less than 50 pairs of each. 

    You can check out what you may (or may not) have missed out on below and don't forget to comment who you think we should collab with next!
