    Just as an aside, the whole “5x salary” thing is also why it’s almost always better to use as close to the full 50k salary allowance as you can.

    50k x 5 = 300, which is almost always going to be enough to at least cash on any slate. The more money you leave on the table, the closer to 6x and 7x you’ll need your players to produce in order to reach the same total.

    I believe that Biyombo can hit 7-8x for sure with Vuc playing. Will crush if out

    where is STL cards daily NBA article?

    For me it depends on pricing too. I look for 7-8x out of punt plays in the 3500-4500 range. 5-6x is fine for guys like RWB and Jamee Harden.

    Ya absolutely. A lot of people get lost in thinking EACH player has to hit exaxty that. You can win a GPP with RWB going 4x if you have the right 8-10x punts and 6x mid priced guys.

    When did oladipo play for Miami?

    Whoa, I guess playing in Florida doesn’t count.

    50K x 5 is only 250 pts. That would be 6x.

    Your point till stands and I agree though

    How the hell is washington #1 vs PG’s so far this season…

    Does anyone know what their rank was before the Elfrid dud o saturday?

    Is Brewer a good enough defender to downgrade Walls production tonight?

    No.

  • Kujo2020

    This might be the spot to fade Embid. I definitely will if Vuc is out, & Bismak starts.

    Embiid at a minimum will get you 30 it feels like. With 45-50 point upside. Love Embiid tonight, his matchup should keep his ownership low. He has the second highest usage rate right behind Westbrook. At $5700 on DK and a better bargain on fanduel he feels like a lock to me

    Duds from Schroeder and Payton?

    He seems pretty matchup proof to me. Super versatile on offense and he can get a few steals and or blocks on defense.

  • DomTwan

    Gobert or DeAndre Jordan? Who is better for UTIL spot when I have $7000 left on DK?

    Will probably have 100% Biyombo (if Vuc sits) and sprinkle in some Embiid together with him.

  • jessedio

    Embiid is a good player but he has to deal with Gobert and Favors tonight. He’s definitely not a must play on DK when Gortat is just a few hundred more.

  • knick89

    Tough to decide between Russell or Harden tonight…

    Yeah it’s nice for Vegas to give the game a 223.5 O/U, but you have to keep in mind that around 143 of those points will go to GS. And half of those will be spread between their backups.

    No

    Why you all feel no will get blown out is beyond me. They just got crushed by the Lakers. Fade please everyone..

  • Scottjmark

    Finished 276 in 3$ DK Sharpshooter the other night with 300 points. Won 47$. Doesn’t seem like much considering I was 27 points behind winner. First year doing NBA and was second day using this site. Thanks for the great advice.

    Hey guys, Im kinda new to DFS. I understand that when a player hits like 5x their value that its good, but how is that number calculated? Thanks!

    5x is for losing lineups though

  • ehylton

    George Hill now questionable, sprained his right thumb

  • erizos17

    What do you all think about E’tawn Moore and Derrick Favours for tonight?

  • gillio

    Harden averaged 73 DK points vs the wizards last season and he has a new role with an uptempo offense. Take it for what it’s worth but I’m going harden tonight
