    I like the new format. Maybe add exposures?

  • Coleray22

  • fupnation

    Injuries and/or late news is where at least I struggle the most and its no surprise that last night’s news was the biggest/most impactful so far of the season, and the first night i got dunked on (Also overweight on Joker..sadge) I need a contingency plan each night, this new overview should help make it easier as your advice is worth price of admission

    I read the Grind Down every day and really appreciate the detail that goes into the article. It is very valuable content regardless of what news breaks later on in the day.

    That said I think the overview is an excellent idea as an added piece to the Grind Down.

    I like the new article format, makes it easier for me if don’t have time to read through the entire article

    I know the NFL Premium summary is created for NFL but it would help to transfer this idea to the NFL Grinddown as well

  • jasonstovall

    Thank you so much for looking at ways to improve the service. Appreciate it!

  • erudin

    Love the new edition/addition and thanks again for your work! The only slight comment I have would be to keep your exposure rating as part of your analysis. Thanks again!

  • bradvos2021

    Great idea, Noto. This is fantastic as a quick summary and a place for updates. Kudos.

  • wildlife108

    Love this, could you do the same for the NFL. Quick overviews are great, and then we will read the in depth analysis to see if we agree or disagree. Thanks.

    I can definitely add this back in. Wasn’t sure if people paid attention to it.

    We can look into it. Little more difficult with four of us doing the write ups but I’ll run it up the flag pole.

    Appreciate the feedback everyone. If we can improve on anything, let us know!

  • ChinaTown

    I love the chart on the first page of Grind Down showing the projected paces and respective O-D ratings. Since each game is just a cliff notes version of different plays each way, perhaps you could also note where it’s a good pace up (or bad pace down) spot in the cases where it’s particularly meaningful

    (“Not basically neutral” OR “something to factor” is now I’d define meaningful there.)

  • stickman1019

    Lineup question (prepare for some math!) If I’m making 8-10 lineups for a 20 Entry Max tournament with a 10 game slate is there a desired number of players I should use in my player pool?
