    WHAts best advice on making lineups for a newb

    This is my second year and I do mostly $1 and $2 single entry and between NBA MLB and NFL and haven’t had to make a deposit since last April. I would say be patient and if you have a good night and double your bankroll don’t start doing a lot of lineups. I usually only do one- three lineups each night. Also on Yahoo they have small single entry No Veteran(so mostly begginners) that are pretty good. I hope that helps. Good luck

    I am a little confused as to why so many people on this forum are trying to force value in order to attempt to get both westbrook and Harden into a lineup together. On new year’s when I finished 10th out of 117k in a tournament my lineup had Greek Freak, Harden and Lebron in it, but the lineup was created when crazy value opened up at last minute with Porzingas sitting and Melo being limited and Delledova being out putting Brogden into an ideal spot. All three of those players were also still cheaper (not LeBron) and were in great matchups. Tonight Westbrook has to hit like 65 to meet value and he finally has a decent backup in Cam Payne back in the lineup and Harden is playing his 3rd game in 4 nights against a tough defense. Not sure why people are trying to force two guys into a lineup that are likely barely hitting value because of price or situation by forcing value out of players that you are throwing darts at. I believe that you can easily get in 1 9k player and 1 or 2 7 – 9 k player tonight and go with 4.5 k or higher with the rest and build a fairly solid lineup tonight. It is rare that the winning lineup has the two most expensive players on the slate when there are 9 games on the slate.

    Val or Monroe ?

    If i had to choose i’d go monroe just because of blowout chances for toronto. But if this game stays remorely close Val should be able to kill value

    Hey Buck I know you like Rubio. What do you think of him tonight? He appears to be in a good spot especially if Lavine is out again

    He is now that KCP is out. Though he did have over 38 mins last night and didn’t produce much

    WHAts best advice on making lineups for a newb

    This is my first year also with no major success yet. Try every single $1 to $2 dollar tourney and the QA stay away from double ups would be my advice. As for lu construction this thread is a goldmine although not everyone is always right which is to be expected. Also try rg lineup builder and if you dont mind paying for a site i’d suggest dailyfantasynerds. Its only $25 and it helps.Fantasylabs is also very good but its pretty expensive for a newbie I actually started making better lu’s with nerd. Last but not least stick to bankroll rules i have a 10% rule right now but its up to you if you want to go lower or higher.

    No. He’s just used as a defensive specialist when he’s out on the floor.

    waiters looks pretty locked for 6x w/ jrich out

  • frugal

    Well after jiggling around somethings I’m now looking at Covington or Gordan at SF on Yahoo. SF the only position giving me fits today. Strange.

    @Rahfulz said...

    not saying that’s a bad choice by any means but stanley johnson is an excellent defender

    Yeah Stanley Johnson is a solid defender. So i’m thinking Hood will have to shoot more 3s or am I wrong?

    lol

    The data is there. Dragic usage does go down with Waiters in. The guy just doesn’t give up the ball. With most of the starting lineup healthy, the offense doesnt run exclusively through Dragic. So still a GPP play, but the upside is limited.

    Make your lineup within the salary limit. Write it down. Then don’t enter. If you start doing consistently well, then start putting money in. Best advice I can give on starting out.

    I play on Yahoo too and you mentioned Carroll earlier. I have him in some and Gordon in a couple as well. I think Cov gets MGK defending him

  • iron_tactics

    So….Waiters is tonight’s Wade? Another Johnson & Johnson Baby Oil night?

    Or do this, but enter the free GPPs, so you can at least win a quarter from time to time.
