    been on drummond all year, but the constant foul issues at this price made me nervous and i only have him on 1 of my 2 teams.

    might have a triple double at halftime…

    I punted with Babbitt (4%) , Ish Smith and Crabbe by taking one or a combo of the two in my 2 different LU’s.. Super paid down at point with Mike James, then took Greek, Pau, & stacked Fournier/Vuc and/or Booker/Warren..also varied them a bit. Also have Justin Holiday in one of them.

    Also just to clarify, I am not saying Dedmon is a bad play. All I’m saying is the huge flip in his ownership % vs. John Collins ownership % (literally it went from 5% vs. 25% to 25% vs. 5%) is 100% due to one game, the last game.

    Dedmon might still get 5x (he really should at that price, he was getting that too when he was 5% owned), but it’s so weird for him to have that huge of an ownership % due to one big game. However, now I understand that, I will use that information next time to help me make better decisions.

    The huge ownership on Dedmon leads me to believe Alex Len will go way underowned.

    In the case he has a good game (not saying he will, but let’s imagine he did), everyone will be like “omg why didn’t he do this last time,” but that’s why you gotta #TrustTheProcess.

    in DK yes. Seems like the main slate included the ATL/DET game. On fanduel the main slate doesn’t have that game. Thats why earlier i said i’m secretly glad they didn’t to many extra wrinkles to think about during construction.

    Drummond on pace for about 25/25/12

    Elfrid Payton Austin Rivers ruled in. There in my GPP lineup tonight. Cant wait to see ownership…

  • Kamais_Ookin

    I regret not having drummond in all my lu’s but he was pretty pricey was hard.

    You’re kidding right???? Why don’t you ask the pros why they max enter instead of firing single bullets dude.

    It’s to reduce variance and lock in their EV. It doesn’t have to do with improving EV. Think about it like diversifying in stocks. You are good at predicting stocks, but if you just do 1 stock, you can be right or wrong. However, if you do 100 stocks, you might be right 60% and wrong 40%, but you have a better chance at locking in that +EV.

    Yep, refs called that bullshit 2nd loose ball foul on Dedmon, and it’s smooth sailing for Drummond now. Could have easily been the other way around. I just can’t seem to avoid the bigs foul trouble 1st q thing right now, it’s nauseating! Luckily, Dedmon only needs like 20 fpts to exceed value. Assuming he can stay away from the fouls, he SHOULD get there.

    Yeah, but 27k is A LOT to fill in the last twenty minutes.

    Five minutes left, and still 23k. Lots of overlay possible.

    sweet lol i could use 177k if austin and elf are like 1-5% owned… lol i dont think elf will be that low though.

  • Kamais_Ookin

    Baynes is 11% owned for the DK contest. Jaylen brown 4.5%

    To reduce variance.

    Only one of their 150 lineups is optimal.

    No Drum No Cash. I wish he was on the fd slate

    I may catch heat for saying this, but here’s my bold prediction:

    By season’s end, Andre Drummond is one of the top-3 DFS players, both as far as price and production.

    First quarter: 6 PTS, 4 AST, 8 REB, 1 BLK, 2 TO

    I went 80%. Had him higher than that, but dialed back some.

  • Kamais_Ookin

    Luke Babbit is epic I had him in my dummy lu I made last night but edited it out today. Could be costly.

  • iron_tactics

    At 7:20 made 2 lineups in the FD 7$. One with Bledsoe-Brogdon pairing at PG, 3 players from the UTA MIA game…………….
    and Payton-Irving in a Marcus & Marcus little deal. Fuckin last minute lineup entries, why did I do it?

  • firemedicpat

    Finally Drummond has a huge night. I’m not greedy, I will take 80.

  • DirkDigglerz

    Luke Babbit though hahah

    Also a good thought here… Wonder if DK stole alot of FD players because they had the ATL/DET game large prize pool. On FD they have the ATL/DET in with late swap only. And those prizes aren’t worth my money imo… thoughts though? because if we see something set up like this it could be a little DFS trend to watch.

  • dabucklebuck

    Why hasnt the Celtics game started?

  • pbr713

    no chance hes top 3 but will flirt with 10k price tag

  • nickelos85

    Babbit baby!

  • superstars92

    I took some chances and chose some really low owned punts that were “pivots” off of the popular sub 4k plays tonight like Grant.

    So got some Ish Smith and way higher exposure than normal. Even have a team with Pat Pat. Probably super -EV, but hey maybe they’ll go off.
