    Starting to see that the high priced players ain’t worth it

  • deactivated66527

    Was ready to give up NBA dfs for a while until Clarkson & Randle combined for almost 100 DK points and got me 300 total points out of nowhere…onto tomorrow we go…

    DK lets you ban yourself. Lol. But I know how you feel. I’m kicking myself for paying up for Queen James.

  • windsorpg

    Ended night with 4 of my 5 LU’s go over 300… Won 6x the entry fees… finally a good night!

  • dragon1952

    I had 2 identical LU’s on FD that hit 304.9 even with Covington’s 0. I actually cashed in one and missed by just 3 fp’s in the other :^ /

    I did the same thing. Everyone else on my roster hit value. And it’s not like Lebron had a Cousins type night like last night but I still didn’t cash. I had Lin, Richardson, Lebron, Saric, Nurk, Rose, Ariza, Zubac. Stressful man.

  • makeitra1n

    @hangtime28 said...

    So the Lakers have been talking about giving Zubac 30+ minutes for the past week. Then he starts tonight just to play 18 minutes. Wtf.

    You do know they have a significant advantage to lose games right?

  • Sleepyfloyd16

    LeBron, Covington, and Hornacek benching Hernangomez in the second half doomed me tonight. All of the profits from my small gains all week pretty much gone in one night. I’m not a big entry player, but it still stings. In one of my better lineups I was waffling until lock between Clarkson and Beverly. Guess which one I picked?

  • RipCityRings

    Pretty decent night. 344 for 84th in the Dribbler, 323 for 342nd in the Block. Even put up a 310 with Covington in the Swat. Cashed 9/12 lines and tripled up.

    Turned $8 into $175 this week, finally getting some momentum going.

  • smalhot1

    idc how many heat players are out i will never play waiters hes a horrible basketball player pure luck whatever stats he puts up

  • smalhot1

    hahahaha i wudnet be able to make that if u gave me 1000 days with this slate to make different lineups hahahahahahaha

    That is tough. That’s crazy that it didn’t cash. I had Zubac with you too and he could have had so much more. He had 20 fantasy points in the first half. That was disappointing.

  • viciousphilpy

    Zubac was killing it, and then he just killed me. I’m surprised the Sixers didn’t lose on purpose, as any Lakers win lowers their chances of getting their top 3 protected pick

    Jokic will be like 80% owned tomorrow.

    I expect Randle Russell and Jokic all to be highly owned

    thats ridiculous

    no one would come up with that lineup unless they did a mass entry with automatic lineup builders..

    Ill make sure Jokic posts a total of 18 dk fpts tomorrow by using him heavy.

  • mccoolio

    Pretty sure even then it wouldn’t have made that after 1 million attempts. RG lineup builder had Clarkson going for 23 FPS tonight I believe, which is well below the 5x threshold for the lineup generator to consider him without user intervention. (I even tweaked his projected FPS to a bit higher and still only ended up with him in like 6% of my lineups). I was heavy Lillard and Booker tonight. Lots of min cashes.

    I had 4 of the them in 3 lineups, considered two of the others Whiteside and Saric, and probably would have played Saric if I’d known about Covington being out, doubt I would have used any of the Nets, they just play too many, even though I did play Lin in one lineup. Of course I didn’t have any good combinations of those that I did play.

  • bigkino217

    Guys there are probably Millions of lineups submitted everyday if not more and I can’t remember anyone hitting the optimal lineup all season. If they did, it was probably on a 2 or 3 game slate. There’s almost always a random punt or 2 that went almost 0% owned. Don’t think today was special for any reason.
