    That’s the problem with the knicks. Even randle is topping out at 32 minutes. They’re playing too many guys. Even though my gut says elf and randle should smash, I just can’t trust it. I’d love to go heavy on these guys, I just can’t.

    RJ Barett seems to get his 30 minutes no matter what. 5500 is a fair price. I can put him in a few, and be just a little less nervous about it. Still quite nervous, just slightly less.

    That’s what I’m saying, it is really tough. Elf was in a prime spot last night and shit the bed. Randle with only 24.0 FD was a lineup killer as well. Yesterdays slate looked really good and I missed on almost every lineup. RJ is probably the easiest way to get around 30 FDFP but on the other hand Reddish is in the same spot.

    I’m going to trust the optimizer a little more than normal today.

    Then put a couple of dart lineups in haha.

    I’d probably play Bradley over Melli too, especially with the $500 difference on DK..

    BUT

    Melli is averaging 23 minutes over his 5, including two games of 26 minutes and although he’s only averaging 18.4 DK points over those 5 games, if you scroll further down his game log you will see spikes of 24+ and as high as 32.3 DK points against the Warriors not that long ago. Sacramento has struggled mightily with C’s, or at the very least more so than OKC over the past month plus.

    On the other hand Bradley has 2 starts this year in Goberts absence.

    11/23 vs NOP – 23 minutes, 26.3 DK points
    11/25 at MIL – 22 minutes, 30.8 DK points

    So, again, even in starting opportunities Bradley didn’t get significant minutes. His results are not far off line with Melli’s production as a whole.

    Also again, I’m sure I’d play Bradley over Melli, but if you’re digging for GPP pivots it’s not crazy.

    The only issue I have with Bradley, Melli, or really anyone in that price range. Is if they will even be necessary tonight.

    This slate is really looking like a balanced approach over stars and scrubs is the way to go

    I’m just messing. You weren’t even complaining.

    Separately, not talking about you at all, I’ve just seen soooo many posts where someone just took down a GPP or has had a nice hot streak, then has like a 3 day losing streak, comes on here complaining about how impossible NBA DFS, and that nothing goes their way. I’m like come on dude, you just won a GPP, you’re good for the season.

    I understand if someone is just losing all season and wants to vent. I’ve been doing this for a while so I understand how it works. I’m having one of my best NBA DFS seasons, yet I’ve hit steaks of going 0-fer 4 nights in a row. Not just losing literally, not cashing even 1 of like 7 lineups for 4 straight nights.

    I know it’ll come around. Everyone who plays is sharp, can’t expect to win every night.

    Don’t 💩 on my Bradley parade.

    He was in foul trouble (meaning he had 5 fouls, yet I’m not sure if he was in actual foul trouble) those games and they were against incredibly pace-y teams. Don’t know if they don’t want to give him a lot of run regardless. This is a spot Utah could extend his run. Yet you raised valid concerns. Still, id appreciate no opinions that are contrary to my presuppositions 😉😁

    Yeah, I am just a rookie at all this so I’m still learning the ropes. I use to just throw a few lineups in and not do any research and lose money time after time. i just got sick of donating and wanted to compete a little so I started taking it a little more seriously. Even if I do have a losing streak, its not that big of deal. Win some/lose some.

    But being apart of this forum, website, and all has been extremely helpful. I find it interesting how differently people will think to construct a lineup (not optimized).

    For science, can someone tell me what 322 placed in for the $4 last night?

    Look at My post at the end of yesterday’s thread, I summed up our little debate…would have been around 20th for $400

    stack the hammer game EOM

    speaking of stacking NO.LA/ SAC

    Both cites have common roots:

    • built below seasonal flood planes so buildings required to be 2 stories before the flood control levee systems were built…. because 1st floor was going to be under water for 1-2 months
