    I finished 44th in the dribbler on FD. Still if he would have gotten me 8 points Festus I would have won $300 instead of $30.

    Just turned 5.00 into 500.00.. Very Happy, Especially with the Holidays coming up. My first Win of 500.00 or more. Got Hairy @ the end.

    Draymond Green had a steal about a minute into the 3rd off an inbound play that wasn’t credited. Anyone else see that?

    You didn’t Cash $ with 300 on FD

    Yea I did $90 (305.40 pts). Lot’s of what if’s that would take me to 1. but lots of decent moves too (Aaron Gordon). On to tomorrow.

    Min cash on 3 of 12 Draftkings Return to the court ….almost had another 3 cash with Curry ( Damn early fouls :)

    Cashed $70 on 1 of 4 Fanduel Mega slam

    Curry missing the 1st , Vucevic getting hurt and Ibaka with the shitty 2nd half cost me lots of cash ….Oh well that’s the way it goes . On to the next 1 already have a lineup I like

  • Lionfan22

    On the bright Side I’m already learning how to construct better LU’s quicker than I thought.

  • Turn2gold

    I hit exactly 300 on Fanduel good for $70 had 2 other rosters with Curry / Vucevic / Ibaka just 19 points off

      RG Overall Ranking

    First and last time I make more than one cash lineup.

    Made one with Curry (254.75 DK) and one without (252.75 DK) cashed only 30% of double up… all losses by no more than one point…. Too tilting.

    Great Job bluesunday ….I just got my first actual 1st in a big GPP 2 weeks ago on Draftkings won $3,000 for 1st off $3 ….Still waiting for a actual NBA win best I’ve had was 5th for $1,500 on Fanduel and 9th on Draftkings for $1,000

    Congrats again on your big win now get another

    Thanks! I’ve gotten a lot of great insight here on Rotogrinders. It feels good to finally win a decent amount. Hopefully more wins in the future for all of us!

    Yea I was sweating at the end ….Curry got the rebound and 2 FT Min cashed me on 2 return to the court thank god Thompson’s FT and Block didn’t move me down

  • Turn2gold

    In for $425 ( Mostly tickets 12 return2court 4 Mega slam ) Cash $226 :(

  • donkeydealer

    I had 2 seperate lineups end with an identical score. The only players that were on both lineups were Westbrook and Hot Sauce. Both lineups scored 279.5 and my third lineup scored 277.75. Good enough for an $11 profit

    Deciding to go crazy and play 200 lineups tonight on FD ($250K Wed NBA Shot) and DK ($300k Sharpshooter). Especially crazy because I’ve never even played a single NBA lineup on DK. Really hope nothing changes in the next three hours so I don’t have to edit 400 line ups!

    Here’s what I did….. (All commentary is based on FD, same cast of characters on DK though)

    PG – Westbrook for my stud and Dellavedova for my cheap option. Threw in some Bayless, Lowry, Curry, and Teague for diversity. Absolutely not feeling great about Westbrook over Curry, but decisions had to be made! Wanted Wall and Lillard too, but didn’t want to spread out too much.

    SG – Bet the farm on Antetokounmpo and Harden. Got a little Hood, Fournier, Stauskas, Stuckey, DeRozan in there too, but if Antetokounmpo and Harden don’t both go off, it’s gonna be a bad night. Normally go all in on McCollum but against the Utah defensive I only got him in 1 of 200.

    SF – Leonard and George were my main options. Diversified with Aminu, Gay, and Durant.

    PF – Love and Myles Turner. This is were I’m feeling the most nervous. But the Pacers are coming off of a B2B and Mahinmi is hurting. Add that Myles Turner only played 15 minutes yesterday and the upside is huge at minimum salary. Got a lot of Griffin in there too, feeling like that salary go go further elsewhere, but he’s one of those guys I have to play. Diversified a bit with Morris, Porzingis, Diaw, and Derrick Williams. Really wanted some LMA action, but just couldn’t at the price.

    C – Big on Koufus, then equal parts Horford, Johnson, and Ezeli. Diversified a little with a little Okafor and Chandler. Hopefully fading Monroe completely won’t come back to haunt me, but with Cousins and Bogut out, this seemed like the best spot to save money.

    So yeah, that’s my $1K experiment tonight! Hope my YOLO moment pays off.

    Well, that was stressful. Lost almost all $600 on DK and was up a little on FD for a net loss of $112. Served as a good reminder that I need to stay far away from DK. I always do poorly there.

    congrats that was a nice score

    Ended up winning $ 380 tonight. Won $300 on the FD Mega Slam ($25). Finished 118th with 323 score. Little salty about how the clips game finished because Paul wouldn’t run the offense through Griffin whatsoever, probably cost me around $1000. Good night all in all though so I guess I won’t complain too much!

  • Turn2gold

    So most of my 12 DK lineups I had a 5 player core Fournier / Thorton / McConnel / Ibaka / Vucevic then filled in the stars ….The 3 Super Value Plays ( Fournier / Thorton / McConnel ) were great …Thought Ibaka / Vucevic were strong plays too

    Ibaka cost just $6,400 with back2back 42 FPS games
    Vucevic cost $7,700 with 3 42 FPS games in a row with 2 of those 46+ FPS

    Ibaka absolutely sucked 2nd half
    Vucevic actually sucked the 1st half but still could have had 30+ FPS especially with the OT too bad he got hurt early in the 3rd

    So in the future should I continue with a 5 player core and then mix in other players or not ?

    Good night. Could have been an amazing night if D Green did something nice tonight but happy walking away with a profit. Highest score was 324 with the highest score in Mega Slam at 342…If only Green could put up more than 20 FDP tonight.
