    this slate is so weird lol

  • panters

    Cashed all 20 entries in the QA (two-game slate) last night. Fifteen won .50 and 5 won 5.20 each for 33.50. High score was 325.
    First time I’ve ever cashed all 20 and I play everyday. Sorry but I just had to tell someone as I have no local friends in DFS.

    Congrats bro, that’s hard to do

    I guess we’re all waiting on Teague and Whiteside news.
    At first glance, I’m going Chalmers / Gasol with some Dragic and Waiters.
    Don’t like hardly anyone on Pho, I faded Monroe for his last dud but think I’ll end up on him today.
    If no whiteside I’m going olynyk too

    Yeah he’s been MIA, hope all is well. I do know he usually focuses on football on Sundays.

    FD GPPs

    Play: Gasol and Butler
    Fade: Warren, Wiggins, and Chalmers

    Trap of the Day: Tyus Jones (if Teague is out)

    Value of the Day: Jamal Crawford (if Teague is out), Honorable mention to Kelly O. (if Whiteside is out)

    I hate this slate. There’s good dfs teams playing, but they are in terrible matchups.

    Bulls have value, bad matchup.
    PHX has great DFS plays but are atrocious on the road.
    MIN should be done with PHX by halftime.
    BKN is in a super pace down game and sucks on the road.
    MEM is in a pace up game against a team that struggles to keep games close on the road.

    And MIA…..should also be done with the pathetic bulls by halftime.

    What a terrible slate. I’ll probably do just one $4 LU on FD and maybe a 4 quarter games on DK.

  • intolerablelucker

    what’s the deal with the Alt Slate on FD? Is it simmilar to Main one, or some different rules maybe?

    (If Teague is out) a $4500 guy that would get minutes regardless of the score as he’s a young player that needs all the PT he can get. I’ll happily take that trap.

    The only differences I can see (without digging very deep) is it offers late swap and contests with much lower prize money.

    Will the Optimizer be up and running today?

    @underdawgs said...

    Congrats bro, that’s hard to do

    Thanks underdawgs. Hope to grow a pair and max enter a $1 in the near future.

    It’s up now.

    @superjon said...

    Be my guest.

    Could you at least explain why it’s a trap? (again, this is only if Teague is out, obviously not playing Jones if Teague is in)

    Congrats!

    I keep having these nights were I am winning a lot of money and then as the night goes on my late night hammers forget their hammers and I end up barely cashing.

    Ownership and huge price bump.

    He’s got some good numbers in games where he gets at least 20 minutes.

    Thanks moped. For some unknown reason my late night hammers are actually hitting the heads lately. Good luck today.

    Small slate, everyone will be owned much higher than usual. Plus I don’t worry about ownership when it comes to lower priced players (especially on small slates)

    As for his price jump I assume you are talking about FD b/c on DK he’s still only $3600.

    We’ll just have to agree to disagree about the trap. There really isn’t any PG that is in an ideal spot today. MIA could blow out the pathetic bulls (so pathetic I will no longer be capitalizing their name). MEM could have their way with BKN. And PHO could easily get blown out even if Booker plays. Jones is one of the few PG’s today that is blowout proof and won’t have someone eating into his minutes (like the PHX PGs).

    Carroll or Markkanen?

    Yes, I’m specifically talking about FD. It’s just a trend I’ve noticed.

    1. Player in the 3k range has a great game or two.
    2. Player’s price gets raised a lot.
    3. Player busts or has a mediocre performance in his next game.

    Agree about no PGs being in great spots. My top 4 right now are

    1. Tyler Johnson, more so if Whiteside is out.
    2. Dunn
    3. Dragic
    4. Dinwiddie

    As for Tyus. I’m only playing 4 line ups today due to it being a 3 game slate. There’s a chance I’d add him in a couple if I were playing a lot more.

    Good luck if you do play him.

    I know he said he was dealing with an injury that kept him at home, hope all is well with him, he’s a great poster

  • DirkDigglerz

    Kinda like the Phoenix bigs Minnesota kinda weak inside. Hopefully Tyson sits..
