    IDK how. Good job i guess.

    I only play the 11 player double ups. Cashing scores always seem to be surprisingly low.

    @elmore0631 said...

    It’s going to be 300

    Well I guess my 284 wouldn’t have cashed that either.

  • Malorum

    So glad that slate is over. Can’t believe i cashed with that Simmons dud. I think it is painfully apparent that teams have him figured out. Until he takes more shots, defense are going to continue to sag on him and funnel him into shot blockers. Defenders know he is going to pass it so they just get in his passing lanes. He had so many silly turnovers tonight.

    Covington will get 10 boards and the double double it looks like..

    Yeah that’s interesting. I have him in my best lineup.

  • zigger77

    I made a whole 860 off 800 in entry fees. But man these tourneys are WAYYYY too top heavy. I’ve won a couple tourneys but if you don’t win it, it sucks.

    Played 28 double ups with one LU. Only scored 265 and had Dray. Won 27 of them (barring stat correction raping).

    Dang, I want to play against you h2h. Also, want to play whatever you were playing. 265 and cashing tonight seems unbelievable.

    325 was the lowest cash score line any of the matches that I played in on FD tonight.

    I think I mentioned it before, it is not only the lineup that you have but I believe a part of it the equation is what games you play in as well. Unfortunately for me not playing in high dollar games, it seems because they are lower stakes games it allows for more people to throw in a multitude of lineups and having one cash to make up for the losers. Good strategy if you got the bank to do it…..though doesn’t require a whole lot of skill. Spray enough shots and you are bound to hit something.

    I do think I may try to concentrate on more single or 3-5 limit entry tourneys in the future.

    Simmons is nothing when the team is healthy.

    RIGHT? Big tourney cashline on DK was like 293 he must be on a weird site then

  • tristanwolf

    stat corrections or last minute heroics cut my money by 33%. tough slate. on to tomorrow. this forum is always fun and amusing and annoying (probably often myself among them) but best wishes to all tomorrow and a fantastic new year in dfs!

    Well just a heads up a single entry doesn’t mean you’ll get a lower cash score.

    Tonight i cashed the big $8 fairly easy but not the $40 single entry with the same lineup

    He’s probably talking about the late slate. That’s my guess. I didn’t play that, but it seemed like that was possible, especially since he said he chose Draymond.

    Dray was in 54% of almost all the double ups I played. If you think it’s so easy, feel free to join. I don’t remember the last double up I was in that didn’t have youdacao, Chipotleaddict and Rexgrossman.

    Will gladly accept any H2H.

    i hear ya, 384.9 and only pick a few bucks.

    DUDE YOU SERIOUS 384 AND ONLY A FEW?? which tournament did u enter?

  • Dirt_Lavert

    So psyched I got 326 dkp and 317. Good enough to cash all my entries.

    27$ single entry
    12$ single entry
    2 8$ GPP entries
    2 5$ double ups

    Really wishing I went in and played more cash games especially. Knew Shabazz wouldn’t be as high as he should’ve been.

    Yea of course, ROI is gonna be similar. Chances of winning are higher if you play more entries, but no guarantee it leads to a higher ROI. Could easily lead to a smaller (or negative ROI) since you are putting in more.

    This is what I posted last night pertaining to my first look at the slate, FD specific, not too far off.
    _______________________________________________________________
    Tomorrow looks easy to me at first glance, which probably means it will be complex.

    PG’s – Play McConnell and Murray.
    SG – Play Tyreke and Barton
    SF – Courney Lee and Taurean Prince
    Power Forward play Saric – he kills in games that Embiid doesn’t play.
    Center you have to go with Cousins.
    I left one Power Forward out as to not violate forum rules of posting full lineups. :)

    I mean look at what that no talent team Dallas did to New Orleans on the road today, you could probably just play 4 knicks. Even Porzingdud is in play against that bunch.

    Good Job Swami….Can you give me the winning NFL and NBA Lu’s for tomorrow. LOL , I usually do a QA the night before. So I know what my original thoughts were before reading and researching things. I’m Going QB Jacoby, WR Hilton, TE Doyle. RB’s Drake, Lewis Kamara.

    I feel you. in the last 3 minutes of that game I went from 5X my entry fee total to 1.5 X.

    I am happy I made money or at least broke even but damn…when you have two lineups that score 363 and 357.4 respectively you hope to cash in a little bit.

    That GS/MEM game killed what I thought was a great lineup for me. I didnt have any players in that game. If it would have just been a “normal” game or slightly higher scoring than expected I probably would have raked!

    But tomorrow is another day.

    On a separate note, is there a way to see the rosters of the people on this board of the games they play after the slate is complete? Woiuld be so much better than having to ask what your lineup was or sharing if your own.

    just join the free contest leagues ppl have. was in a 11 man with all grinders and came in 3rd. think kat won it.

    You are obviously talking about the late slate because no way he would be 54% owned in the regular slate. I didn’t play that but I agree I see them all the time, especially in those 4-10 man 50/50s, which are more apparently in the smaller/late slates.

    12/18, you slayed. how much did you win? 800 a night is hardcore, ive recently bumped up from 30 to 60 a night with some recent success, but i’m fly/bantamweight.

    Wait Jacoby at QB? Wow I thought I was the only one. I had no choice cause I didn’t have salary left…but I’m kinda worried lol. Hate stacking QB/WR in cash. If one busts, the other might too.

    I’d gladly accept too.

  • superstars92

    Btw give Ben Simmons at least until PHX tomorrow (with Embiid back) before saying people have figured it out. Has PHX figured anyone out?
