    Great job. So hard to win. I had 351 last night and was happy with getting $15 back on a $5 entry. You must be on cloud 9.

    Hill was 4K. You could have played both and had the roster flexability to pay up elsewhere. In terms of price, Hill did have upside if his minutes were going to be stable. 6x value was only 24 points for him. Instead of comparing him to Turner it’s easier to compare him to the other 4K players. Cole, Brewer, Thompson, J.Smith etc.

    how? only played 20 minutes when mahinmi was out of the lineup against the suns and 16 against the warriors. had a solid game against sac yes but what indicated that he would get minutes last night? since even with mahinmi out, he wasn’t getting them consistently. lopez and jokic far superior plays. its one thing on DK to throw him into your UTL spot but on fanduel no way im playing hill with his sketchy minutes over lopez or jokic, no way

    Consensis today is MKG. I like him as well but for about the same price, I like Turner and he has been playing well. Also, anyone like M Williams today. He is about the same price and playing well also. Just getting too many CHA players in my LU. Would like the group’s thoughts.

    ok, i get it. but there is just no way you could argue hill offers the same type of upside that turner does. hill had not been producing even with mahinmi out of the lineup. i feel like that hill game was an anomaly. for me, it makes sense to play the guy with more upside even if its chalk and just differentiate elsewhere.

    Hill is not a bad player. He’s had his moments this year if you look at the whole year rather than just the last few weeks. Solid scorer and rebounder throughout his career.

    ya hes ok i seen him play before, was solid on the lakers but what im saying is that even with mahinmi out, his minutes have not been consistent. had that good game against sac yes but diddn’t see much floor time against suns and warriors. i think it boils down to the matchups, and if they go small with allen or turner at center and george at the 4, which leaves hill out of the game for the most part. i guess you just have to guess how the teams will matchup

    I played Lopez. Lol

    me too. fantastic play. i play him over hill all day every day. i play fanduel so you have to pick one center. what im saying is that its crazy to think that you had to fade a 60 burger from lopez to win last night.

  • WuChef1986

    All over Smart (again)

    he put up 33 against Orlando on the 29th in 28 minutes ,and has over 30 FP in 3/4 games

    Most people thought the same thing as you, he was owned in less than 10% of teams in the tournaments I was in. Nothing to get mad over this stuff happens all the time in dfs

    explain more, ive never heard of that. you really think on fanduel with one center it made sense to play jordan hill over jokic or even lopez? hill hasn’t done 40 all year and has done nothing even with mahinmi out!

    Yea, I played Jordan Hill.

    He was cheap and produces when he gets minutes. He hasn’t lately, but I haven’t forgotten what he did at the beginning of the season.

    Yet again I found myself going to the Paul George well and coming back dry! I had a couple of lines with Ellis harden brolo and wall and they still didn’t cash! None of my punts worked out for me last night

  • zpa1989

    also hill had 6 blocked shots. out of character for him. season high, could even be a career high. just a fluky, random outcome. but hey its dfs happens nice when you have that guy. i had lou williams in his big blow up game this year. lavine’s 40 burger the other night. picked thornton when he hit 10x against the clips few weeks ago. nice when you nail it.

    Dieng or Towns today on Fanduel?

    I have shares of both, but heavy on Towns.

    Bingo

  • Whacko

    The question was raised why I am looking at Gerald Henderson simple fact for me is that he should be lowly owned, with the potential to have 21 minutes plus.
    He is a Punt therefore if he Hits value so be it, but if he manages 7x that’s butter…

  • ejr0680

    Anybody else like Gorgui Dieng? tonight for DK cash game

    So here’s thing. Yes, it was somewhat of a risk to play Jordan Hill over Lopez. BUT, if you want to win a GPP you must take some of those risks. And that’s the bottom line. It doesn’t always make sense.

  • badlands92

    I’m with ZPA 100%. For those who played Hill, congrats. For those who played him as some “no brainer” on FD (with only one center option)…uh huh. He very well could’ve clogged the C position with a 22 fpts performance.

    Some people like to take anomaly games and run with them as if they performed some DFS wizardry. Taking Hill on DK in a puntish move probably made good sense. Taking him on FD was nothing more than some good luck (which of course is half the battle).

  • DirkDigglerz

    If Garnett is out all in for Dieng and KAT

    Almost every night I look at the winners LU and think WTF was he thinking while the winners are stacking cash. You have to be bold with GPP Lu’s not stupid but bold.

    Loving some Dieng tonight and all aboard the MKG train.
