    Thanks as always, Noto! Rotogrinders needs to hook some of these pages up with music like MySpace used to do…then every time somebody opens up your articles, they just hear “No- No- No- Notoooorious” and instantly know what’s up hahaha…it could be like the equivalent of WWE entrance music for all you contributors lol

    I legit wonder why Vegas continues to put low totals on Miami games. With the way Philly plays and Miami’s recent games, the over should be a mortal lock?

  • Mike4daWin22

    Agreed, Needs music!

    Last chance to clinch a seat to the WFBBC in the $77 qualifier on FanDuel. I’m going to try to take in as much information as possible as tonight’s slate should be a good sweat going into the late games. Lineup construction is something I’m working on but prioritizing players is tricky. Picking up on trends has been the key for me with the help of some RG content like Noto’s Grind Down article. The Grinder Shows have been too vague for me personally but it’s a good insight into the process. Good Luck everyone!!!

    Great slate last night. Barea ended up being a steal at 4,700 on DK. I plugged him into all my lineups last night. What a huge slate tonight compared to the last few. It seems like it’s been a while since we had a slate this large. Their are so many players in the elite category at almost all positions. Today is going to be a battle with so many possibilities. I’ll probably be staying away from the Houston elite just because of the blowout factor. As always I’ll be doing my best to figure out the top 2-3 at every position and roll with those configurations. I’m gonna focus on up pace games and hope that’ll be the key. It’ll be tricky though. Any thoughts Notorious?

    HAHAHA!!! I just saw your CVR and saw you like some Utah players. Me too. They will be the team I target the most for cash but we’ll see. I usually love Ingles but his price is getting higher. Whenever I pick him he’s been gold for me but he’s getting a little pricier, but has good usage if Rubio is out. Royce had a dud last game but also has great minutes with Rubio out. Have we heard yet if Rubio is playing or not?
