    Jimmy Butler 34.2% owned in FD NBA Monster. Legitimately feel bad for anyone who played him.

    There simply needs to be more transparency regarding injuries and illnesses for the NBA. We knew that Ingles is sick (and he still might play), but no mention of Butler until minutes before tip-off. If DK and FD are going to be sponsors of the NBA then the NBA needs to help make this a better product by actually announcing these things much sooner. That or actually offer decent GPP’s for late swap, or only offer late swap.


    The argument can be made for late swap, but the real problem is the NBA not having injury designations.

    You play a guy who carries one its on you if he sits.

    Gordon on 37.25 DK points with the first half about to end. Beast mode.

    Makes it even more frustrating that I have butler in every lineup with Gordon….

    Butler out my LUs are done

    Same. I thought about switching him out to make room for KAT and now I wish I did.

    Oh well time to make a late night lineup now.

  • roach62

    is Porzingis high out there or what? he looks completely fucking lost…

    Vucevic is on pace for a 22 point double double though, so there’s that.


  • jadoninc

    20 lineups 19 has Jimmy Butler. Hi money say hello to fire.

  • mark83vt

    So Hardaway at 0 and hurt. Butler gone. KP a complete dud. That should pretty well wipe me out tonight.

    bulls beat writers are the worst. remember the game where derrick rose just never showed up to the arena? not a single beat writer even mentioned it.


    Butler plays for the Timberwolves now

    Rose played on the Knicks when that happened last year

    They somehow didn’t even notice he wasn’t warming up. Not sure you can blame the Bulls though, he was at NY last year.

    @Ree4erMadness said...

    I didn’t have any Butler because I didn’t like his usage, price, or match up against Oladipo.

    Match up against dipo? Are you serious lol. People like that get lucky because of no late swap. Suck a fatty DK smh

  • MisterMister

    Don’t feel too bad, I removed Jimmy Butts two hours before tip-off but thankfully have Timmy Jr taking his place as my grand goose egg of the night.


  • Supanice

    As a NFL player making his second attempt at a NBA double up lineup.. wow I might cash, Butler was 37% in the single entry double up. Love it.

    @AxeGrinder said...

    DK determined that casuals LOVE getting zeros. Sharps LOVE getting zeros. You would need to scour twitter for hours for this news that I got well before the game locked on DK Live. I don’t have much butler but still bothered and wish DK or FD made a decent contest with late swap but they won’t because this is the skill part. Apparently, Butler was sick but it was a secret and no one knew except maybe a few pros got the inside info. I am going to check his ownership in higher buy ins.

    But where would the pros even get this information? It’s the equivalent of insider trading at this point. All any of us can do is scour twitter/rotoworld and hope we get solid info. It’s like were not playing on a level field if any pros had this info.

    faded sabonus hope he gets to foul trouble

    KAT and Teague starting really slow to complete the washout

  • Lathum

    anyone have an update on THJ?

    Is he shut down for the night?

  • KindGuy

    My “Fade KP and Jimmy Butler anytime they play” rule might actually work out if Hardaway can show up!

  • mbunner23

    Was all in on Butler….night over.

  • terrypercs

    Thank god my Jimmy butler exposure is limited to $1 worth of entries. Went heavy on towns , Wiggins and had some Teague/Gibson. Not that it’ll make a difference cause my main slate entries is so far from cash right now. Hopefully I can do well in the late slate

  • Strumz

    Would it be too long winded if DK/FD offered you the chance to pick backups in case your player is ruled totally out after lock? Not good if you are putting 150 different teams in but maybe better for the causal fan so they don’t get burnt.

  • someclevername

    Switched Gordon out last minute and I don’t even know why really. Oh well, at least I don’t have Butler and I also took THJ out when I realized I had picked THJ.

  • Lathum

    I have one lineup with THJ, Terrance Ross, and Butler. Its like I am trying to set a record for ineptitude
