    He came in and had a bunch of alley oop dunks.

    Sounds like Gafford—he was ESPN’s designated go-to highlight guy before Zion came along. Actual productive play, winning games, that sort of thing he wasn’t so good at. But he’ll get his dunks and blocks.

    You think it’s worth playing?

    it’s essentially a discount on rake, so I would say it’s better to play that contest than a contest without a bonus pool.

    So yes.

    I just built one in an optimizer that has a good shot. I don’t think it will cash necessarily though. I’m not entering this contest so I’m not sharing a full lineup.

    Nunn, Dragic, Graham, Fournier, Harris, Bertans, Porzingis, Covington, KAT

    I think they won’t all hit a 3. Maybe 20% they do?

    The problem is if you want a better shot at the bonus pool, you’re hurting your ‘optimal’ lineup build in a variety of ways. I guess it would make you different, though.

    What contest is this on FD? The 0.05 cent one? which one has the bonus for whole lineup hitting 3’s?

  • Yeoman

    @yisman said...

    yes, I’ve heard of it.

    They have a ‘bonus’ pool of X amount.

    If everyone in your lineup makes one, you split the bonus pool with anyone else who accomplishes it.

    I always thought the play in contests like that is to fade the bonus pool. Everybody will be stacking shooters in their lineups chasing the pool, so get the peripheral-stats guys at low ownership instead.

    I’m not sure it’s every day, and even if it is, sometimes it fills very early. Check FD lobby daily. They often have some kind of bonus pool.

    For NFL they had a couple of weeks with a bonus pool if a player of yours scored an OT TD. The 2 weeks I saw they did it, no OT TDs, so they kept the bonus pool.

    Where do you see no Brunson?

  • JSteele

    Nunn, Dragic, Graham, Fournier, Harris, Bertans, Porzingis, Covington, KAT

    6.1, 6.0, 8.4, 5.3, 4.2, 7.2, 6.4, 5.9, 9.0

    The average number of 3 pt attempts per game. For one of them to miss on all of that would be a bad beat.

    Didn’t you just answer your own question?

    But in your opinion is that the right move? Any strong takes?

    @superstars92 said...

    No one’s really talked about him but Nikola Jokic is only 8.4k. Yea, he’s fat, overweight and whatever else as tmarhol says, but he’s only 8.4k.

    If he was 6.8 – 7K, I would consider him.

    Why would I not play Spencer Dinwiddie in 100% of my lineups? 20 entry max? Outside of the obvious he could have a bad game narrative…

    I’m not sure. Would you put 100% of your money in a single stock?

  • deepfat

    Liking Delon Wright as some cheaper value. Game could blow out giving him closer to 30 minutes off the bench.

    Wait, are you talking about bleals, or actual stocks?

  • kettab24

    Donovan mitchell may well be the slate breaker on DK…he’s at an odd price which may steer ppl away…alo really like Lavine

    I mean, I like Burks better for both personally, but that doesn’t mean it’s correct.

  • tmarohl

    @miggs6876 said...

    It is just a bonus on top of the regular contest. If it hits, you might get three bucks. Big deal.

    actual stocks this time.

    Speaking of bleals, anyone else really like Isaac?

    At what point does it hurt to fade Spencer 45+? Im fading him for the likes of butler,aldridge and graham

    He’s going to be about 35-40% owned, so if the guy you fade him for doesn’t outscore him it hurts a lot.

    That being said, all of those guys you mentioned have a real solid shot at doing so.
