    Bubbling out the cash line with 300+ in the 888 with a zero from Goodwin and the blow out by GS kind of really sucks

  • dominicanpapi

    Absurd that Wiseman had this kind of game playing only 20 minutes

    Maybe Goodwin should get some of his juice

    What is fd cash line going to be. I have 326.6 and I’m worried I’m not even going to min cash. Stupid

    I finished at 393.8 on the $1 dribbler for 81st place. Not bad but missed a couple of pieces needed to win some decent money. Didn’t know of Sexton was playing and punted both PG positions. Maybe its a start to something bigger. The last week or so hasn’t been so good.

    Eh, people are forgetful. Or tend to not want to embrace new things.

    1) Toronto has been league average defensively, and actually giving up much more than the average amount of fantasy points to guards this year.

    2) Nunn was a leading contender for ROY, last year and smashed plenty of times when Butler was out. He was a 6K+ player at times, before the league shut down. Then going into the bubble he had covid or some injury that left him behind, and he just never got back into the rotation. Not because he suddenly sucked at basketball.

    I’d actually bet historically without going back and looking at last year, that he succeeded in this spot way more than he didn’t in the past.

    All true. And not sure why I brought up matchup as I don’t really care about that (with the exception of Jrue and Bev maybe) especially with a value play. And I remember Nunn balling out last year for sure. I just didn’t think anything was concrete enough with him to warrant 40% ownership. Also on a kind of related note I feel like having a solid memory on players has hurt me this year. Take Delon Wright for example, I remember him being 5-6k and putting up 40 spots. Which is why I constantly went to him at a cheap tag with some minutes. Same thing with Josh Hart, he dropped 50 spot one time when I shipped a tourney on yahoo and used to put up 40 all the time. Keep going to Cam Johnson on the cheap as he put up 30 spots a few times last year when he got run. I know there is more. But what do I know. I whiffed so hard on everything tonight it’s embarrassing.

    Hit on Wise-Man.. Dray duds out, Curry fizzles out. Had no big shares of OT games. Say Quickley-Fever tomorrow. Robinson. Curry! Dray! Some Wise-Man’s. Even Randle at 8800 is playable. Think could be great game stack. Feel like Draymond has 1st 50-Burga of season. Maybe 45. Like the Over in Game as well. Won again, on G S -1 today.

    the mem/por cancellation messed up everything for me…

  • chronoxiong

    The posts in these threads are growing lighter as time progresses. People are tired of their plays not working out. Or just tired of losing. I’m tired of losing right now. I told myself to stop getting trigger happy and entering in a lot of games. Because I wasn’t working today, I got excited since it was an 11 game slate. Ended up playing $60 worth of games with a Slam entry. Backfired on me for the 3rd time this season as thats how many times I been in the Slam. Fell short of cracking 300 points due to so many duds.

    This is what I deal with every in my cash games: https://www.fanduel.com/games/53764/contests/53764-243282924/entries/2335908221/scoring?entry=2335903897

    I’m fed up with this. It is stupid to play PG13 and Kawhi Leonard together in the same lineup. Thats as lame as playing Lillard and McCollum together (which I did not too long ago and lost). Isn’t this the true example of lineup optimizers? Because you’re not supposed to do that if you make your own lineups. And don’t give me the “oh, but the Kings/Clippers game’s o/u was 228” or something like that. I’m not crying tonight. I knew what I was going into by being in $60 worth of games. I think that 50/50 I just linked to you guys made me realized that I need to take a break from them for a few days. And try out a Double Up of $5 or something and see if there’s a problem there. By the way, I calculated out my original dummy lineup and it would have fallen short of cashing anyways. Sucks..

    Chrono, hang in there. Dfs is a marathon not a sprint. Have a bank roll and be disciplined. Ride out the highs and lows. It’s possible to get a big payout. Many here have. I’ve been playing for a few years and have 6xs the amount that I started with. It’s still peanuts. Dfs occupies my time, stimulates my brain, love the challenge, and is fun. I never gamble too much. Many years ago, I made a S500 football bet and lost. The whole game I was cursing and pissed off. I don’t want to feel like that again. Tonight, was example of me having fun.

  • emoney1214

    That 361.6 lineup had was like 25-35 percent of cash lineups on fd. Had them beat till oladipo must have had a block or steal taken away. These big slates can be brutal if you miss on 1 or 2 guys.

    Yep. Only 1 or 2 guys off is the difference from cashing big to eating peanuts. Have to be lucky too.

    Yeah true. I used to be able to withstand the losing because I knew that I can win again. But its getting hard to win if you making one wrong play now. And making two wrong plays can even end your night. Thats why it is angering me. I have people constantly reminding me to stop playing so much if it continues to be like this. To keep my action to $20 or less. I’m gonna try to see if I can do that from here on out. The lineup trains, yeah not even cool though. I keep thinking I will beat them often but so far this season, thats not the case. I have no clue what a S500 football bet here but it sounds like it was a lot. I would be depressed if I lose something like that. Glad to hear you are enjoying winning again. Sounds like you are having fun which is always good. This is fun to me because I like to figure out how to beat others in fantasy. Thats why I dont want to give up totally lol

  • monarch

    Had a 339 DK last night with Goodwin bagel. Also chopped a SD with awesemo which helps the BR.

    Not sure about tonight. Feels like Tuesdays slate. I may go be a tourist in the NHL streets today.

    That was the RG optimal. It’s been winning at an amazing rate so far this year as the projection team is nailing it. George/Leonard were both good prices for their floors so they were fine cash plays. If McCollum and Dame are both underpriced for their projected points you definitely could use in the same ‘CASH’ lineup. GPP, no.

    I hate Fanduel league games so much, but unfortunately they seem to be the only thing left to enter when it’s 30 minutes before lock. Scored a 360 and came in nearly last place in a 10 man league. It’s freaking ridiculous that I would have needed a 380 score just to minimum cash.

    They must be just infested with sharks NBA is just hopeless now.
