Ok, I know that sounds crazy, but it’s really the only thing that makes sense anymore. Every night, no matter who I pick, no matter what the data says, that player will bomb and bomb badly for me. It is driving me nuts and just feels like they personally want to burn me. Case in point, Frank Kaminsky. I play this prick on 2/23 and he gives me 23 pts. I skip him the next game and he goes off for 47 pts. I play him on 2/26 and he gives me 26 pts. No thanks Tank. I skip him last night and he’s another 40 pt burger. Reggie Jackson is another. 29 pts if I don’t play him. Lucky to get 10 pts if I do. Otto is the same way. Add Millsap, Rose and Tobias Harris to the list.
Other than ranting, I guess my question is how in the hell can you have confidence in your lineup with so many up and down players? I feel like it’s a game of wack a mole and while I do get some right like Marcus Morris giving me 55 pts, it is nearly impossible to have all other eight slots catch all these boom or bust players on their boom nights. I started creating a daily list of all the bust players and will blacklist them if they burn me more than one within a week. Then they have to put up 3 good scores in the future before I will try them again. That’s the only way I know to saddle this extreme frustration.
