    So in April he will be shooting 50%.. watch out NBA

    I think he was 50% tonight.

  • SkateFiend

    This was an ugly slate – Cojo, Parker, Zubic and Lyles torched my lineups. And I was never on this Randle guy.

    Thankfully my Drummond lineups avoided the landmines.

  • terlingua

    Just an FYI for folks beating themselves (or others) up for rostering Chasson. He was in 44-48% of Chipotle, Awesemo and Papagate’s lineups. Youdacao had him in 29%…. the $15 500K on DK.

    He was a perfectly legit play.

    Agreed. $3.3k for a starting point guard is nothing to be ashamed of.

    Lol that’s why they call it Stars & Scrubs.

    Your Stars starred and your Scrubs scrubbed true to form.

    I feel you though, had 338.5 with Randle

  • JSteele

    I thought I had no chance but Will Barton allowed me to min cash and save my buy in. Does Reggie Bullock have a better performance tomorrow against the Hawks? He’s 3.4k he should have a couple practices under his belt now and he plays besides LeBron and its the Hawks.

    Updated Giannis 3 point shooting % by Month
    October 6.3%
    November 14.3%
    December 22.2%
    January 30.6%
    February 36.4%

    If you take away all of his 3PA for the season, he’d easily be the most efficient 20+ ppg scorer in the league over Steph.

    @Baller93 said...

    Excuse me, but at 2:15 Malik Beasley hit a three pointer and they credited to Will Barton. This will cost me $20,000 if it doesn’t get corrected. I’m sweating bullets right now.

    Edit: They corrected it lol

    20k in which contest?

    Cojo/Murray…NEVER AGAIN

    Cojo/Murray…NEVER AGAIN

    Cojo was just a straight out bad play, with Matthews active and starting.

  • mtdurham

    Lol i just read last night’s thread…. the tilt was real…

    disappointing night i had a lot of good lineups thanks to my heavy griffin/drummond/beal/george exposure but nothing over 324 and of course i got dinged by randle/jabari like everyone else…

    wish id played more kadeem allen man that was the play… a night like last night i feel like you had to get some serious scrub exposure because there were just SOOO many in good spots you knew someone would pop.

    NBA is about to get awesome for DFS purposes because of the tanking and the new players and all… i think you pretty much HAVE to start getting a little stars/scrubby but you wanna be careful not to necessarily go overboard on one in particular…. i mean randle was 43% owned and kadeem allen wwas 1%. Was Randle really 43 times more likely to be the better play???

    Okay back to a more normal slate tonight…

    You’re welcome for the Beal plug, lol.

    Avoided the Parker trap on DK, really didn’t think he was a good play at 5.6, but did get Randle in a couple and then completely ignored what Wes Matthews was likely to do to Joseph’s minutes so had him in 4 of my 7 lineups. Still cashed 5 of my 7 due to PG, Drummond, Beal, Deng, Nance, and CP3 doing the heavy lifting. I completely forgot about Chriss and Russell was a guy I really liked but just didn’t play him.

    Today is interesting, lots of guys that are great price point plays but have some serious question marks whether it be recent play (Ben Simmons, Aaron Gordon), minutes restriction (Davis), or matchup (Gobert). May just make a lineup with all of those guys.

    Yep thanks you definitely helped me go heavy there… also incredibly glad i stuck with my guns and ran the blake/drummond stack in so many lineups… usually i like to alternate those guys, but if there was ever a night to play them together it was last night…. i had so much exposure to that game, a shame it didnt go to overtime i would have had a lot of big lineups….

    Ariza was really overlooked last night…. ive got more to say about that but i dont want to give away my entire strategy for tonight lol

    5 game slate is like the perfect size i think… gives us a chance to make some under the radar plays but not have to go all crazy with whatever the heck that lineup was last night that won

    I’ve just been ignoring Ariza every night and it has been a bad decision so often. I just keep foolishly going to Sabonis at the same price just waiting for him to have one of those 18 and 14 games in 24 minutes. I’m so invested at this point I’m going to be so pissed when I jump off and that game happens, so obviously I can’t allow that and I’m just going to keep burning money until it works out after 15 tries.

    I just want to know how 96% of players just knew this was not the night to roster Reggie Jackson. Did everyone just go for Westbrook and the value PG?
