    Well, we can trade tips then. Because the NFL is my best sport in DFS. lol

    This shit… my god.

    It’s embarrassing. It’s not like I just don’t cash. I finish near the back end of cash games probably the majority of the time. haha. It’s a joke

    I’m the same way with NFL LOL! It’s gotten to the point where I won’t even play NFL anymore, as much as it pains me. It doesn’t matter who I draft, they get hurt or don’t see touches they should.

  • MrPerfekt7

    Wow so a Thunder stack is currently the play right now.
    So Carmelo decided to play tonight

  • emnj69

    nobody will play zbo next game and he will drop 50 fantasy points too

    NFL is 100x worse. I can cash easily in NBA on a nightly basis. If you need tips, just ask :D

    I can’t win a single dollar in NFL to save my pathetic life though.

    I’m the complete opposite, I routinely cash most contest I play for NFL, but for NBA I’m always on the same page as most people for the right plays, but the rest falls apart and I been struggling to consistently cash.

    I fell hook line and sinker on the late breaking “”(player-popup #jordan-bell)Jordan Bell”:/players/jordan-bell-37877 is starting” news

    I only play NBA GPPs. No cash games for me.

    I swear fuck Zac Randolph

  • emnj69

    nfl sure guys can get hurt in game but at least when u submit your line up there is not a chance a guy decides to take the night off-

    Yea that’s about 95% of all I play for NBA…even had a bad run on cash games here lately. I win an build back up through NFL to only piss it away in NBA lol

  • sox9

    Near the half and Ingles and Rubio both scoreless

    I work up my bankroll little by little during the week on NBA, then waste it on Sunday.

    yep I only did one line up tonight as I didnt like the mixed slate today but wanted to watch some games I put in zbo in tonight last minute I did not like his game logs but thought I would get at least 20 points out him never thought a zero would be coming my way

    If you look at the DK stats they say the top 1% players earn 46% of the winnings with 25% of the entries. The next 49% of players win 8% the remaining 50% win 44%. I am guessing most of us here are not top 1% so we overall donate over the long haul.

  • balladamus

    So how does Ingles go from being a very active player overall to doing absolutely nothing tonight? How does variance strike that damn hard…

  • byo34

    I have Ola and Mitchell and these last 6 mins were great, Favors only other guy I have going in this game alongside those 2. So far so good!

    The top 1% are guys that do this for a living=pros or sharks. Most of us are casual players (I’ll put up $10-$15 every couple nights) just to make the games a bit interesting. In 3 years I am roughly plus or minus a few hundred by the end of the year.

    He could still get his 20 fantasy points. If you look he hasn’t scored more then 10 points in like a month.

  • Beckhams3Fingers

    One thing I will say, once I stopped trying to fire single bullets, or like 2, 3, 4, 5 entries in GPPs… and went full on MAX entries, I started to seeing positive ROI. There’s just no way you’re going to be profitable long term if you aren’t max entering GPPs. You may get lucky with a LU once in a while, but 99% of the time you won’t be cashing.

    I max enter the .25 juke and the $1. Build a core of 3, 4, 5 players, then create 20 LU variations. Now and then I will fire a single bullet in a higher entry GPP, like $8, because I want that life-changing $50K score… and I’m always reminded of why I don’t do it often LOL

  • TheRyanFlaherty

    Joe Ingles makes me sad : (

    Jealous. I had a Favors/Blake lineup but I took it out. That Mitchell/Oladipo play is looking sexy right now.

  • Beckhams3Fingers

    Some people say you play GPPs to win. I don’t necessarily agree with that philosophy. If I see 3x, 4x return with max entries in the .25 juke, that’s a legit successful evening for me. Of course I want that 1st place score (got one a month ago), but realistically, I“m hoping for minimum 3x ROI to build my roll and eventually move up in buy-in.

  • Bnett2210

    Yeop it would probably be a safe guess that most donate over the long haul lol. I used to just play a lot of the smaller 5-10$ DU contest like 4-5 entries to try An cover any GPP losses, but with A bad streak going on the DU’s right now, its starting to show a lot more in the bankroll lol

    Rest of my LU has some definite risks. Reed, PJ Tucker, Tyrone Wallace but also Lou Will and Eric Gordon.
