    The magic just seem to get worse each year? It seems like they should be somewhat competitive with their roster…

    Winslow only dud so far for me. Waiters and Embiid making me not care.. still have plenty of my studs to play as well.. liking tonight so far but it is early!

    If the NBA is going to be a partner with DK and FD (I see their logos on courts and all over arenas) then they need to force teams/coaches to give better/sooner info. There is no reason the Memphis news should not have been released sooner. I have zero Conley or Gasol, but I still don’t like how this is handled. The MLB provides starting lineups and batting orders hours before the game, why can’t the NBA get it together!

    you really think the coaches care about fantasy? they make their money and FD/DK gets their rake fees

    Well said I completely agree with this. In the long run it evens out if you play every night. I dont like late swap bc I work night shift so I cant watch twitter after the games start on most days.

    I never have bought the evens out in the long run, if you get stuck with a 0, you lose, ain’t much way around it. If you end up on the other end and don’t have the zero, most of the time, it’s probably at most between 15%-30% that have this player. You still have to have a good score to beat the 70-85% that don’t have a 0 in their lineup. you have less people to beat, but you still have to have a good night, but if you get stuck with the 0, you are done.

    Mike Conley is out. What kind of bullshit is this? I could’ve swore its November! Not April!!!!

    Hmm…that Dunn pick is extra sexy now…and not nearly as chalky as folks predicted!

  • mvanderk10

    No late swap in NBA? Jesus Christ Draft Kings what a deplorable move for basketball daily fantasy.

  • LaranzoW

    Marc gasol out??

  • BphillzMSU

    Someone give me a heads up on Winslow. Thanks.

  • mrmogz

    Loving having Dragic in 6/10 LU’s tonight. Please put up a 50 burger/donut/lobster/sammich/poutine/steak

  • skankinmat

    P.S Elfrid Payton playing with that hair is ridiculous. It bounces up and down as he runs like he wearing a giant sombrero

  • tmspriggs

    Sergio going off

  • LaranzoW

    F**k!!!!!!!

  • Tammy409

    Just sat down and ready for Conley/M.Gasol stacks to roll…

    I kid ;’]… I saw the news but didn’t bother changing them… Too much stress trying to madly swap out. I’m cool with it. I do own a ton.

  • skankinmat

    He also just almost air balled a wide open 3…

    These guys know the risks more than anyone. Even the best players are going to have some horrible nights, but they make it all back when they hit it big. The NBA is notorious for their late scratches, so it’s just part of game. Not trying to say it doesn’t suck, but it can be really beneficial if you happened to fade those particular players. Like I said, it does tend to even out in the long-run

  • dtrain187

    I never said the coaches care, of course they shouldn’t…BUT…the NBA should care, and they are employed by the NBA. There is just no reason this info about MEM should’t have come out hours before. Again, I have no Conley or Gasol tonight, I just know hope the NBA makes some changes to starting lineups being released sooner and more transparency.

  • PDFOUR

    I should be happy that Conley is out. But I have a major dud in Andre drummond. That was a very stupid play on my part, he’s up against joakim Noah who is a good defender and Andre drummond is a one trick pony who gets into foul trouble. Nothing has changed with that guy nor will it.

    Try entering high stakes contests and risking large amounts of money and your night is over before it starts. We’re not talking about $3 entires. But, imagine being the guy entering $300 contests. No late swap is terrible.

    I don’t even want to mention the ownership % I had of Gasol tonight.. at $6100 and slowly coming along lately I saw a low owned guy with a high ceiling. Maxed out the $3 and yeh have MANY lineups with him. Including my dart in the $333… very disappointing evening

  • hobbes2d

    Well this night is crazy lol

  • mbyrd75

    Never hear anybody post when a 20% owned guy they faded gets late scratched and they have a good night. Only the negative.

    speaking of negative..D’angelo russell…w..t..f

  • LaranzoW

    Have no reason to play NBA on dk if there is no late swap

  • jjhollaway

    So glad I went all in on DION WAITERS! HIT VALUE IN THE 1ST QUARTER! Sergio also going off and my studs are doing what they are supposed to do! My core was Waiters, Vue, sergio, and Leur and they are all doing very well. Lets make some money boys

    Yeah he sucks. Took him in 1 LU over Waiters

  • thedkexperience

    Real Talk: Embiid is the best center in the Eastern Conference.

    If you have not seen this guy you just have no idea.
