    Optos can be hit or miss. I’ve seen nights where the #7 opto-generated LU goes for 347. And, it’s got someone like Rudy Gay in it. And you sit there and scratch your head for 19 minutes trying to understand how on earth the opto would know it was a Rudy Gay 7x night.

    But most nights otpos kick out a mixture of obvious chalk plays with mid-tier duds.

    Anyone else play this pos tonight?

    If everyone is using them and playing Prince and Taj wouldnt you want them to use them so you win easier?

    Actually, I just want people to win by making lineups through their brain and knowledge of the sport. Not through some generated bs. Its gonna be hard for me to win on FD because I have Ish and Beal so it aint looking good there. But on Yahoo, I might cash tonight because I faded some of those busts except for Ish ugh.

    Now they’re saying Napier is NOT starting. Conflicting reports.

    Optos help guys who can’t spend 5 hrs doing research and hand-building LUs. They provide instant research. But, otpos should be looked at as a tool, not THE answer.

    I use them to start roster construction but I rarely just toss in an opto LU with no editing done first.

  • Culver, wiggens, graham, dieng, roco

  • zpa1989

    drummond floor game crushed me. think gobert might be the center to pay up for on FD

    I get what you’re saying. Here’s how I view the smart way to use optos. I use them to point out players I’m not thinking of and that prompts me to look into why the opto may like them. Something I may not be seeing. That said, if people pay to use them at face value and it’s not against the rules, there’s not much you can do but complain that people use them. Is what it is.

    If everything was single or 3 X entry, maybe you wouldn’t have as many people using the tools. No one has time to hand build 150 lineups on a daily basis.

    Yes quite a bit on DK, like 100% lol

  • EhhTimmay

    I hate Julius Randle.

    Guy is a bum every time I put him in lineups. Naturally, don’t have much today.

  • Herf

    Frazier was a great play tonight IMHO. I had a mix of him and Rose and figured one of them would have a solid stat sheet. Drummond and JVal are doin some dirty things to great lineups right now. I will still cash decently, but not near what could have been.

    I really like Fox, Wiggins, and Niang in the later matchups.

  • Petergunz82

    Where the fuck is J Val?

    I try my hardest to squeeze in like 20 lineups. I don’t know how someone can do 150 lol

  • Gadnuk

    So is napier going to play tonight? I have him at UTIL on DK right now and am trying to decide to switch him out or not. Have 3400. Any insight is greatly appreciated.

    I’m just gonna keep him in my lineups, thought about swapping some to Culver but just gonna let it ride. Hopefully he can still get 15-20 mins

  • choppadown

    I wouldn’t have believed you if you swore to me that NY was going to beat up on BKN tonight…but here we are.

    I think that it’s a smart play. Napier produces more than Culver normally so he will still get his chance off the bench.

    I see tonight is the bash on the optimizer’s night.

    i was gone 2 weeks and that argument is still going lol

  • zpa1989

    wow shouldve rolled the dice on dieng, mabe wiggs. those people will get PAID

    i can just bet you any amount of money if i loaded up on dieng, towns would’ve played, 100% stone lock to play even if i had ONE. 05 cent share, so i full faded and here dieng is going to smash. god damnit…

  • jjwd

    @Calicapo said...

    I find it hilarious that the optos had Prince as a cash game play

    which ones?

  • zpa1989

    beal getting hurt was just plain unlucky imo. probably played into the blowout.

  • yisman

    FWIW, RG left Napier’s projected minutes the same and moved Culver from 16 to 14

    don’t ask me how that makes sense

    Hoping Napier gets 20.

    Not much to swap to that is any better FPPM wise. I have 100% on the Main and Late slate. I just “re-optimized” my late lineups down to 55%
