    I think Luka is pretty much un playable tomorrow, Even though he may make value you have to find some serious value. At first look I kinda like the Mem/Clev game.

    Thomas Bryant is ridiculous value if he sees 25+ mins. I have no idea what his mins limit is though.

    I’m also certain Jeremy Lamb will be chalky because every optimizer will be all over that points-per-price.

    And holy…Kevin Huerter’s last game???? What in the world? I did not play….I’m glad I didn’t.

    Also, what was the winning lineup? I don’t play FD, so literally I’ve just been going off posts here. I know it had MPJ, who else?

    I think I know it by heart because it was identical to mine pretty much.

    Kemba, Rubio, Mitchell, Middleton, Ingram, Barton, Favors, MPJ, Robert.

    I didn’t look it up. But sure that’s it

    High scoring night. I put up 407 on FanDuel and finished 5000 out of 62000.

  • ghostfacekicker

    5003 and 411.1

  • ghostfacekicker

    Walker Ball Middleton Mitchell Barton Hayward Leonard Porter Jr Anton

    Hayward has a 15 and I still put up 411.1 to finish 5003 in the money.

    I give ADAM SILVER credit — it’s a FUN PRODUCT……..sadly; for the record — I’ve long since decided since LBJ and the #WhoIShongKONG – CHINA – (situation) — that i can no longer respect him….moreso as a person… (I play him a ton, though in DFS)…

    WORST of all, I’ve been rooting for the #FAKERS since the early 80s……I pray they don’t win shizzle with LBJ #AYDS there…just the way I roll ……

    P.S. — I guess 10.6% owned SingleEntry RJ BARRETT and his 13.75 — got injured or sumpin?
    20% AYTON was huge..and a 50burger from 18.2% Kahwi was solid – BOJAN B at 17.5% — 36.25…bleh, but not a negative..

    FYI = the DK SE was a 327.75, I’ll take it..betta than not cashing by sub 3pts..STAT CORRECTION ON PLUM DOGS — holy shit he got a BOARD or something and a BLOCK ADDED..

    ZION RETURNS SOON

    I’d think Bryant gets low 20s @ worst…….anxious for ZION……..Pelicans are interesting, but can be really messy from a DFS perspective..if u had either any LONZO #ayds BALL or “”(player-popup #eric-bledsoe)ERIC BLEDSOE”:/players/eric-bledsoe-1031” — LeMello ball would be betta, u were screwed for elite GPP finish…..just can’t make BOMB – mistakes and NAIL THE TRAP PLAYS………..

    tmarhol: Why does Giannis suck at FTs all of a sudden?

    He has never been good at them, but he used to be at least a 72 or 73% shooter. I think it is all in his head. I have seen him swish 12 in a row, and also seen him brick them consistently like this year. My theory, he takes too much time. He needs a routine. Go up there, take a couple rythym dribbles, and shoot the damn ball. He is a human rain delay this year. He would be right there with Harden in scoring if he shot a decent percent this year.

    Congrats to those who won tonight. I’m jealous of you all. I’m gonna send FD a support ticket to ask them to fix their soft pricing because seeing the high scores tonight is not cool. Neither is it fun. Yes, I’m not happy tonight. I feel like crying to be honest. I knew Monte Morris was a trap. Knew Jerami Grant was one too. And stupid me for picking Bledsoe over Rubio and Walker. Along with trusting Harrell in a game that I felt was going to blowout. Again, I have no one to blame but myself. I went heavy on FD tonight and lost it all again. Along with going heavy on Yahoo again too. I think I’m done playing on Yahoo for now. Except on Fridays.

    Money Market? I recommend SPY. It only goes up.

    No idea what a SPY is. Just want the dude to not lose money and have cash when the tax man comes calling.

    Not a huge fan of playing bigs vs. Toronto. I have been playing Garland a lot, he is shooting the ball a lot more, Ja isn’t a good defender. Val has been playing better. Sabonis killed the Wolves the other day. No idea which Spur guard will go off vs. Atlanta. Beal seems really cheap…. I think he put up 90 against Tor last year.

    I remember when the goal was to hit 300. Now you have to shoot for 450.

    KAT if he comes back will help the Pacers actually. Yea didn’t play that slate when Pacers and Wolves played, but I wonder what Lamb was priced then. A 4.6k Lamb does look really cheap but he’s been really struggling last few games.

    I won’t play Bryant unless he sees 25+ mins, looking at his last 2 that might be a stretch though.

    I think LMA is solid value vs. the Hawks. I know Garland has been playing better, but not sure I want to get on his train yet. He’s definitely got a really good stroke so that will make him valuable no matter what in the future.

    Also I need an explanation on why Cam Reddish is 4.8k on DK coming off a sub 10 FP game….??? Anyone know? Are they actually trying to make him 0% owned. Even if Trae was out, I wouldn’t play him at that price and I’m a big proponent of playing him whenever Trae is out against bad defensive teams (like the Nets).

    To make it simple, if you or someone you know has a 401k, that (and similar products) makes up probably a decent chunk of it.

    That didn’t help me. My 401K is made up of large cap, mid cap, small cap, bond funds, index funds, and some foreign funds. No idea what you referred to.

    It’s basically the large cap, but it’s also highly correlated to mid cap, small cap, index funds, etc. So essentially your 401k should have been doing super well last few years, just like SPY.

    Wow Cavs have 4 players who’s dads played in the NBA

    Darius Garland – Winston Garland
    Kevin Love – Bob Love
    Larry Nance JrLarry Nance Sr (who was really good)
    Tristan Thompson – LeBron James

  • superstars92

    Whoa and Bradley Beal is so cheap he’s like a lock tomorrow. Just noticed that….7.6k historic lows in maybe 1.5 years.

    that seems excessive, but it’s not…….

    I really do love NBA — in general and moreso DFS — it’s a crazy game….. especially sub 150 entries……but 2 each their own…

    just grind out the #AYDS one day @a TIME……….. —- ‘til u #BOINK sumpin’ and go from there……

  • eatmyturf23

    Congrats to the winners, especially Billy! Incredible.

    That said, I’m tired of each night becoming a silly scoring fest with arcade scores. One dud and you’re effed.

    It hasn’t been fun playing on Yahoo lately bro. Looks like I’m going to give up on that site for now except for Fridays due to the Yahoo Cup. Seems like you make one mistake on there, you lose too.

  • fluffynuggets

    Rough formula for anyone winning 10K+

    Withdraw 90% of winnings; leaving 10% to enjoy a bankroll bump and continued DFS fun.
    Take half of what you withdraw and put it into a safe, FDIC insured investment (CD, mutual fund, etc.), that will maturate just before tax time. Riskier investments are unwise due to any possible loss.
    Take the remaining half of your withdraw and do as you see fit. Enjoy it.

    Congratulations to all the winners!
