    Hibbert usually plays well against the Bucks as they have tried over the years to trade for him several times.

    That might explain his ceiling a bit which was THIRTEEN X on DK!! Don’t think I’ve ever seen a min priced DK player go for 39.75.

    But Hibbert was needed badly for his team as a big so I’m very surprised how low owned he was in cash and GPPs @ 3k and opening up the gems at the top. I mean barring an injury his FLOOR in my projections was easily 15-20 for tonight. Had him on my cash (7% owned) and GPP DK silver bullet (5% owned) :)

    dude you won 12k, congrats. nothing to be pissed about. Wish I would have entered and won it but too rich for my blood. It’s like playing slots and hitting jackpot for $200 when playing minimum where if you put in max you win 20k. I’ll get there but congrats and watch out when I do have $300 to waste on the monster.

  • Johno

    Well, I overplayed the shot slate yesterday and lost approx. $100… I stuck with my core today and won almost $1000 (profit)… Thank you Myles Turner and the 6x and 7x hitting scrubs that let me fit Harden, Westbrook and AD in all my line ups

    Congrats Man, wish I would have played my 399.8 in that contest :)

  • Tammy409

    What a Night. Got $4 back and somehow managed to cash one with 292 that had both a “0” (T. Williams) & a “-0.5” (Glenn Robinson3). Nuts.

    Nice Work. Congrats.

  • Tammy409

    Seems like everyone is hitting 400 points. Is that a FanDuel thing? I don’t play there, but on DK’s it does happen, but not very widely or very often.

    I would guess guys like Frazier $5,000 (8X), Ennis $4,000 (6X), Barnes $4,300 (6X), Dieng $5,500 (6.5X), Bogdanovic $4,100 (6.5x), Winslow $4,700 (7X), Kanter $5,100 (7X), Kidd-Gilchrist $5,400 (8X), Barton $5,100 (5.8X), Monte Ellis $5,500 (7X) There were a ton of guys who hit high value tonight with the soft pricing.

    It will happen very infrequently after about another week. Once the prices get adjusted for some of these guys you will not be able to have a viable lineup with 4 studs and great scrubs. The only exception is when a bunch of value opens up because a couple guys get hurt. Tonight you had a bunch of starters priced like scrubs. In a few weeks you will cash at 275 and win GPP’s at 330 and above.

    Yep, he and the rest of Detroit killed me. I’ll probably still go back to them and write off tonight as a fluke. They do look shaky on defense though. Also not sharing the ball on offense.

    Ey I see you around a bunch in some other forums so I’m just going to give you some advice on that one.
    Don’t do it, Detroit is a trap on most nights, I learned that the hard way.
    They can be a fun team to watch when they’re on their game, but the way they play is just not conducive to taking down a gpp , or even cashing for that matter.

    Now Andre is practically a lock for a double double (without injury), but he does not have same ceiling as other similarly priced centers.

    I don’t know what the hell is going on.

    It’s the big leagues now… No more free lunch.

  • Tammy409

    Why is it that people on here say ‘If I had done this, I’d have won that”.. ?

    The fact is you didn’t.

    No way could you have played guys like Frazier, Deng, Kanter on Draftkings. I think they were each about $6000 on a $50K Budget. Needed to plug in bare minimum, $3000 players in at least 3 or 4 spots. My winning lineups with all three had Stuckey as the PG for Chrissakes.

    Thanks for clarifying. I was shaking my head, honestly, when I’d see these posts about having 400 points and not cashing, as I was like, what tournaments are they playing? 300 on DraftKings got you your money back at least.

  • fpsnba

    In my heart, I thought I win money today, but still lost about $22; all 30 LU w/ eyebrows and the beard man. tough day! Better luck tomorrow

  • Johno

    Where I play they seemed cheaper (moneyball.com.au) wasn’t too hard. I had guys like Turner, mkg, Frazier, etc that were heaps low owned.

    So happy NBA is back. Dfs NFL has been killing me.

  • Asylum13

    You can play $1-$2 satellites to earn monster tickets. I have won a couple. Have one coming up soon.

    Damn, congrats! You were crushing preseason too.

    Got a little excited when I woke up and saw my 327 then saw top scored were near 400. Crazy night. Gonna go deal with a sudden wave of jealousy issues lol

    Ever since the pre season finale I have failed to cash in almost every contest I have played in. I don’t know what the hell is going on. It’s about to be almost a week of nothing but losing. Just feel like quitting altogether right now.

    I’m taking the day off today and getting back after it on Friday. Would suggest you do the same.

    This slate was very draining for me for some reason. I believe it’s because I only entered 25 LUs. Last year when the Swat was the big tournament I could enter 100 LUs and not stress about tinkering or anything like that. If I had put in 100 LUs I would’ve had a lot more AD and not had him paired up with only Oladipo.

    Don’t see how you guys that put in 5 LUs or whatever do it. That’s not really enough to hedge if your favorite plays aren’t working out as you’d hope.
