    What’s the site you can plug in basically any question and it’ll give you stats for them?

    Example: “”(player-popup)Lebron James”:/players/lebron-james-1227 game log vs Knicks 2016”

    Thank you

    If you want to win or place high in a GPP your looking for at least 6-7 times a players salary. So if Durant costs $9400 on DK your looking for 56-65 fantasy points. If Durant gets you those easy 40 DK points like somebody said on here, your lineup is probably a losing one. Durant has played great this preseason but it’s definitely not a lock that he scores 56 plus fantasy points on Leonard and the Spurs.

    Rachelynn is correct. Expect something around 315-330 tonight.

    IDK about that. on a 3 game slate that seems high.

  • mrmogz

    JGun, it’s all relative though. If Curry, Dame, LBJ, Kawhi also don’t score 5-7x value then Durant not doing it doesn’t prevent him from being in a winning lineup. On full(ish) slates it’s bound to happen with the amount of players playing but on a 3 game slate, if the few stars don’t produce 5-7x then the cash lines and winning lineup will just be lower scores.

    ZaZa or TT?

  • Usual21

    Good to be back playing NBA. I remember that we used to do a daily FD league here before it died out. Any chance we get that going again?

    A 3 game slate that has: Lebron, Durant, Curry, Klay Thompson, Irving, Melo, Lillard, McCollum, Leonard, Aldridge, Gobert, Love…

    All of those guys are capable of getting 40 FPs. Some even 50 or 60. Hell, I think Curry even hit 70 on FD last year.

    (of course this was on Fanduel, I’m too lazy to go back and see if the question was for Draft Kings.)

  • JGun10

    @mrmogz
    I agree with that line of thinking but I think tonight there will be multiple 50 plus points scorers even only in 3 games. The key tonight is picking the right stars that go off and combining with lower owned value plays. If KD gets 40-45 points but Lebron, Curry, Leonard, Irving, Lillard, Gobert, Melo, or Porzingis have a good game then KD could hurt you in a lineup. The 3 game slate is tricky tho, you could win a gpp with 290 tonight or you might need 330 plus if a bunch of stars go off tonight.

  • mattyice522

    You are correct. RWB hit 82 once too.

  • strassnerte

    PF on FD. Who to play along with Lyles? Green and Aldridge overpriced, so is it Love or Porzingis? Basically same price

    The winning lineup was 319.75 last year (again, discussing Draftkings).

    That was 3 games including Cleveland at Chicago, Detroit at Atlanta, and New Orleans at Golden State.

    That was also with Love and Irving not playing, and Anthony Davis putting up a massive dud.

    There’s WAY more studs in play tonight as well as great value plays with high over/unders. Not to mention multiple position eligibility for several players now.

    It’ll be 315-330, if not more.

  • Asylum13

    TT. I think he is being overlooked. He can ball.

  • Ty127

    Any cash musts on dk?

  • BPhillips44

    Keep coming up with a UTA/POR stack. Makes me nervous.

  • BiggrThnu3113

    Why would Draftkings not have the NBA Wednesday10/26 slate up yet, am I missing something?

  • IronMonkey415

    Probably toying with us or They want us to go ALL IN tonight.

  • DomTwan

    Lerron Yames

    ALL IN

    He’s another one of those guys that is bad when I pick him and great when I don’t. I should probably squeeze him into at least one of my lineups.

  • Luctyl99

    Carmelo or kristaps is the big question who will have the better game fantasy wise?

  • BiggrThnu3113

    I’ll be ALL-IN for a $4 DK GPP DART! Anything more is just bad bankroll management- 3 game slate with some of the best defenses…would like to spend time researching the WED slate but DK’s holding out!

    I actually like Aldridge. Of all the PF’s you mentioned the only one I didn’t put into any lineups is Green. I want to see what his numbers will be with Durant there before I start spending the money on him. I would give Love the edge over Porzingis though, but that is b/c I have Irving in most of my lineups.

    Lyles will be the mega chalk in cash and GPP’s.

  • moped_jones

    This is for the people that do multiple lineups..

    Do you ever pick a lineup from the early games just so it’s not as boring? I hate having all late game players and falling behind and then having to play catchup for the rest of the night. Plus you run the risk of getting a DNP if someone is a late scratch in the late game.

    I have 1 lineup tonight that has 7 people from the first game. I ended up having money left over for Gobert and Hood. The rest of my lineups focus mostly on the later two games. I was just curious if anyone just played an early game lineup they know would get them a great start but then fade away as other games started. Kind of to tide you over until your “real lineups” start.
