    I’m sick of breaking 300 on Draft Kings and not cashing.

    I think im taking a break for NBA DFS. I think optimizers have hurt the game a lot.

    I’m gonna stick with hockey and baseball when it comes back.

    it’s not only optimizers…the premium sites will color code the exact players you should have in your lineups. it’s not like poker training sites where you have to actually put work in and be smart to get better at the game. they hand pick all the plays for you.

    the kicker is all the contributors that you pay $60+/month to are max entering all your contests. $720 a year isn’t enough for them. lol

    On top of all the colluding teams that you have to play against.

    I started to play hockey semi seriously this year and I can honestly say I min cash way more consistently in that sports compared to the NBA. I took down a quarter contest last year. The 35 plus save bonus for goalies at DK gives you a bit of a cushion.

    NBA (in its current state) is very unfriendly for DFS play, because you basically have to hand pick 8,9 right plays, and the small player pool results in massive ownership. Mike Trout won’t be 40% owned in most MLB slates.

    Beverley sore groin, left the game

    Q to return

    Time to hang on for dear life, well done dude

    Thanks man, fingers crossed

  • yisman

    I’ve always hated NBA DFS but I will say all the optimizers should make taking down a GPP easier.

    Ownership much more concentrated than it used to be.

    Easier to know which guy or guys to fade.

    Cash games are obviously a dumpster fire but they pretty much always were.

    Are these guys allowed to play DFS? I thought lineup sellers couldn’t play DFS.

    when you see HIGH PRICED guys in smash spots 60% owned in 50,000 player pools you know everyone getting the same lineups.

    Too many common lineups.

    Takes all the fun out.

    Try to be different and get killed by 60% and if the 60% guy doesn’t have a good game, the Max entry guys have the pivots as well.

  • yisman

    not sure if mentioned, but after trading Iguana, Memphis signed Dillon Brooks to a 3 year $45 million extension

  • queensfinest

    porzingis broke his nose

  • yisman

    Butler hurt his shoulder, went to the locker room

    porzingis broke his nose

    Good thing he dropped 58 fpts first. He would have played more too if game had stayed close at the end. He was itching to come back in but there was no reason to risk it

    The optimizer sites also probably use paying customers lineup info to help make their lineups better
