    I'm 75% and he should still get 30 minutes tonight. Shouldn't have a problem hitting value, imo, with Minnesota's defensive efficiency near the bottom of the league. Read More

  • DK Cancelling the 7pm NBA/NHL Slates

    At the very minimum, DK should have paid out the "guaranteed" prize pools no matter what. If you cashed, you keep what you made, if you fell outside of the money you should have gotten your entry fees back. End of story. Anything else and it appears the... Read More

    Just another losing player trying to bring down DFS because someone else made more money than him. Give it up, bro. Read More

    If it's your first time multi-entering, I'd do a couple different cores of 3-4 golfers. Do 10 lineups with the same 3-4 guys and differentiate the other 2-3 roster spots using pivot plays off the first lineup (which should be your optimal lineup of the 10... Read More

  • John Deere Classic (PGA)

    In my opinion, I like to weigh recent form more than course history. As superstars pointed out, CH doesn't take into effect how a player has regressed/progressed since the prior year(s). I like to run a cut % formula to see what percentage of the time a ... Read More

  • RG Community - Tell RotoGrinders About Your Craziest Sweat!

    My most recent sweat came back in December 2016. I was playing NBA that night and decided to go with two 10K studs that night and fill out my roster with value, as there was a chance some value would open in the late games. I built this particular roster around "(player-popup)James Harden":/players/james-harden-1037, "(player-popup)DeMarcus Cousins":/players/demarcus-cousins-1490 and "(player-popup)Nikola Jokic":/players/nikola-jokic-31812. This was a point in the season where Harden and Cousins were both < $11K and Jokic was around $8.5-9K. Dorian Finny-Smith was getting the start for Dallas that night, so he was my boom or bust punt play of the evening at $3K or just above, and he ended up finishing with 37 DK points at low ownership. My other value play that was critical to this lineup was "(player-popup)Omri Casspi":/players/omri-casspi-1270 - "(player-popup)Rudy Gay":/players/rudy-gay-1341 was questionable going into the late games and most of the news was pointing to him not suiting up, but wouldn't be confirmed until pregame warm-ups occurred. I decided I'd pair Casspi with Cousins, as they were playing the Lakers and you always stack against the Lakers, especially when it's two terrible teams facing off. The sweat: So, all my early game guys had done their part. Beal, Carroll, Beverly, Harden all went for 6+ salary price in the early slate of games. The Denver/Dallas game going into halftime had DFS crushing value and Jokic was sitting at about 19 DK Pts. The sweat started when Jokic got HOT in the second half - he put up 30 DK points in the second half to get to just under 50 total DK points. Going into the late game slate I had Cousins and Casspi left and I was sitting in the top 3000 out of 132K entrants. I knew I had a good shot at big score if Cousins put together a good performance and Casspi just reached value (~15-18 DK points). Fast forward to the 4th quarter and I have jumped all the way up to anywhere from 10th to 18th, just jumping back and forth, winning $1,000 at one moment, winning $2-300 only the next moment. Well, Cousins was highly owned (per usual) and SAC was starting to blow out the Lakers in the 4th quarter. By this time, Cousins was also the second highest total point scorer on the night (behind Harden). Cousins gets pulled during blowout, but Casspi gets to see some additional garbage minutes with Gay ruled out, and a limited bench at the SF position. I settle into what I think is a top 10 score in 9th place, until Casspi hits a (meaningless) three pointer with under a minute to go and then immediately steals the inbounds pass. I jump from 9th to 4th and was cashing for $8K vs $1K a few minutes earlier. Time expired and I was still left in awe on what Casspi just did in garbage time to catapult me up the standings.

  • Terrible payout structure in $4 20 max and $8 (100k to 1st) on DK

    In my opinion, they need to limit the payout structure to the top 20% of the field getting paid instead of the top 24% they use in most contests. Cash lines would obviously go up in GPPs but I don't think by a large margin, as the scores between the top 2... Read More

  • NBA, 3/30

    At min price, I don't mind this play. I wouldn't put too much weight on his season long FP/Min stat..it's Brooklyn, so if the minutes are in the upper 20's/lower 30's tonight, I think his floor is 5x tonight with upside of 8-9x. Read More

  • NBA, 3/30

    I'd lean LBJ and McCollum. I think that combined ceiling is higher than Harden/Ariza. If LBJ goes for 60 tonight (definitely possible), Harden needs at least 74 to match value. Not sure I like those odds with the sore wrist factored in but he could get ... Read More

  • DK main slate doesn't include best 2 games

  • Max Entries NBA down to 20?

    Those 20 max tournaments had almost the exact same player pool as this weekend. It filled with no problem each night, so the 150 vs 20 entry is moot, as they didn't increase the player pool entry size much at all over the weekend. Do the right thing DK a... Read More

  • Max Entries NBA down to 20?

    Loving the 20 max rule so far for the $4 tournament. Prize pools are still pretty nice for the big GPP and it levels the playing field for people who don't want to max out at 150 lineups every night. And, the fact it's still filling about 30 min before l... Read More
