    I recently created an NBA lineup that I was relatively happy with that was $3600 under the salary cap. Of course, I switched out a player and ended up $200 under the cap (probably will end up badly). How much is too much to leave on the table? Anyone routinely play lineups that are thousands under the cap?

    i think 3600 is too much in nba. the higher the salary/points correlation of the players, the worse it gets. i was using a $500 as my max unused cap for nba before i hiatused NBA to focus on nascar and the upcoming baseball season. in baseball on the other hand, im not nearly as committed to using all of my cap. leaving $3600 would probably be a very unique circumstance though. take that with a grain of salt. i recently looked at another player’s analysis of high volume players and I used the least amount of salary for all that were analyzed in mlb.

    3600 definitely too much in my opinion but I have left over 1000 in both NFL and MLB. Out of the ordinary to leave that much though.

    There was an optimal lineup last year in a Week of NFL that was $2,600 under the cap I believe.

    There is no actual number. If you have money on the table, but there are no potential upgrades you like, who cares if you have money left over. There must have been an upgrade or two you could’ve made with 3600, I usually have several hundred left over every day.

    I like to give other players a chance sometimes i leave over 5k on the table

  • paulmsr

    I typically leave anywhere from 2-800 on the table, very rare for me to leave more than that

    Personally I think that NBA DFS is the most crucial to use as much of your cap space as you can. In sports where one play can be a large percentage of your score (MLB, NFL) I think it’s less significant.

    wouldn’t even remotely consider 3600 left over, unless it was a shot-in-the-dark tourney lineup

    The perfect lineup each night almost never spends the whole cap. It is usally from $59,200 to $59,800 on Fanduel.. For this reason, and I am GPP only i deliberately try to leave money on the table. More often than not, we know a good play when we see one, and it is when you try to force things because of that extra salary that we get in trouble. Plus, it will differentiate your lineup from the crowd, as most will obsess over each pick until they come up with a lineip that uses all the cap..
