    Thoughts on the Spicy Mustard tonight? May be a good punt vs Lakers. Should hit value easily, with some small upside (for Cash).

  • mchin1027

    Lopez seems to be pretty productive when given minutes, but his minutes are unpredictable.

    Should play more vs Drummond right?

    I have been playing Draftpot lately only…….I am only going to be playing H2H from here on…..

    For those who aren’t familiar with DP, in a H2H/GM mode game, you have a 300 point limit to build your team and each player points is based on their average FPS per game. Any advice on how to correctly build a lineup??????

    What did you build around those three? :)

    You really can’t build around those unless you pick scraps and they luck out. Like LIn and Moore.

    I cashed 11 in the new DK tourney and had A.Rivers and Thompson only get a combine 11 points.

    feel better now?

    I had WB, Curry, and Draymond last night. Did have both Lin and Moore, though. Lin was obvious, but Moore was purely a punt with his minutes/matchup. Nice to have a 180 points from 3 players to build on, though!

    Please keep thinking that way and when you do make sure you throw some cash in the GPPs.

    2 nights ago, Spencer Hawes was in the winning lineup. You call that “strategy and research”. Spencer friggin Hawes. Give me a break.

    He’s been a hot play for 2 weeks now lol

    Booker/Brewer or Affalo/Tucker for Cash?

  • bluesunday1287

    Best night i’ve had in a week or two last night.. 12TH in the Fanduel Swat, 361 Points… 1 Dollar turned into 300.00…. Lets eat tonight boys!

    Im taking Asik over Ro-Lo, but thats just me and in cash. holla.

    I’m playing Asik also, centers feast on the shoddy Laker defense. At that price he could hit value with a broken leg.

    How hard is it really to actually pull down a GPP? I ask myself this question becasue you literally have to have everything fall into your lap..Think about it..Last night E’Twaun goes off which I had in one lineup that I didnt have Jimmy Buckets in and that lineup did great(also had AD, LA, Westbrook, and Kyrie) but the other 4 pieces of the puzzle fucked me and they were all solid plays. But Butler gets scratched late after FD lock and all the money is removed from those lineups because of the zero..So a complete fade in JB(who was the best SG with the best matchup as well last night) would be just the starting point..If Butler was scratched before lock, i wouldve had 100% exposure to E’Twaun(huge purdue fan, watched every single one of his college games minus a few) and thought that it was going to be one of the lowest owned Value plays that would pay off atleast 7x which i bvelieve he payed off 9x last night…I wouldve pivoted to Oladipo from JB and had Moore as my orther SG to go with Westbrook, Kyrie, AD, LA, Horford. Though Covington and Barnes sucked i still wouldve cashed across the board. Im starting to think the big GPP’s are just too tough to take down with a limited bankroll and im tlaking under 1000$. I think there definitely is some skill involved, but the luck completely outweighs it in my opinion

    Congrats! How many lineups you put in?

  • tdsforever

    @jeuffd said...

    Woah thats rough! They must have had E’Tuwan, Lin, or Oladipo to top that.

    LOL. I also had Lin, Jordan Hill, Dieng, Covington, Barea, Gibson and Bargnani

  • dailyfinancialsports

    @tdsforever said...

    Bargnani

    bruh….

  • quietstorm778

    What about Lin & Moore was luck?

  • tdsforever

    @dailyfinancialsports said...

    bruh….

    With the lineup I had, I basically had to utilize a player with barely any stats, which is why I chose him.

  • jeuffd

    @quietstorm778 said...

    What about Lin & Moore was luck?

    The only thing that was lucky on FD was that Jimmy Buckets was late scratch after lock. I liked the play regardless (matchup/minutes). Lin was going to get a ton of minutes/usage with starting at point with Kemba out. Neither was luck. EM just went for 10x instead of 6-7x because of Buckets sitting.

  • dominicanpapi

    That after hours slate on FD is rough, you’re basically forced to start Alonzo Gee.

    I almost took down the Fanduel $25 slam about three weeks ago. Ended up in 3rd for a cool fifteen grand. I should have won the thing though. I had Chris Paul and Wade in the last game of the night, and the two guys ahead of me had no one left. Clippers broke the game open with about 5 minutes to go in the fourth quarter. That sent Paul and Wade to the bench. Missed second place by less than one point, which would have gave me an additional 5 grand, and missed first place by about 9 points, which I would have had most likely if the game stayed close.

    A few nights ago scores were through the roof. I had something like 370 points and finished in about 200th place.

    He put up 23.60 FD FPTs against the Lakers earlier this year and didn’t score a single basket lol

    Since you are a Dolphins fan, I believe they will move you up in the rankings solely because they feel your pain of so many disheartening seasons. JK

    I am not sure how they work.
