    Last minute changes….so last minute changes to lineups that I had already submitted have cost me $1,036,000 the last two weeks. Its taken me a week to start to come to grips with this. Still sick to my stomach.

    Assuming it was a change in the DK million that cost you first place? What was the lineup you changed?

    Right before the 1pm games I switched out NE for GB…remaining lineup would have finished top 10…couldn’t leave well enough alone so with the possibility that the Eagles would sit their starters I switched out McCoy for Forte right before the 8pm lock. I’m wicked smart.

    Original lineup:
    Manning
    McCoy
    Dennis Johnson
    Decker
    Demaryius
    Ryan Griffin
    Riley Cooper
    Prater
    NE D

    If my math is right would have been 212.9

    CB is right – all about short term memory.

    Possibly a silly way to look, but whenever I make a mistake like that I justify it by thinking the following things:

    1) That was just 1 lu combination I consider throughout the week – there were plenty other lu’s that I had locked in at some pt, or at least contemplated that would have performed worse – could have very easily played one of those. Timing of the change shouldn’t matter, although it without a doubt makes it more painful.

    2) In a large GPP like that there were at the very least a handful of other people that had considered a diff lu at some pt that would have allowed them to take down first place.

    Haha!! I got burnt bad on a lineup change in basketball about 4 hours ago. Had Steph and Kamen switched for Bledsoe and Bogut. Easily the biggest screwup I have made since playing DFS. I’m really just using this post to vent! The unofficial outcome of my switch. Steph 57.75 Kamen 39.0 – Bogut 20.5 Bledsoe 5.5! It’s like I tell my 2 year old when she falls, just shake it off.
