    I completely agree with it. I’m trying to decide whether to drop down from Westbrook to Holiday and seeing if I can make up the additional 20ish pts elsewhere with the savings. Of course I would be hoping for closer to 40+, I think upper 30’s is a fair projection. I would like to take all of the big 3 on DK, but I really like Randolph at PF tonight, and it’s impossible to fit those 3 with him.

    Ya, it’s hard to fade either of the 3 big guns today but I did fade westbrook in a few LU in place of holiday.
    Randolph is also on my radar!

    Yes, Douglas plays the 1 now.

    ‘Are you saying you’re submiting the same players in all LUs in GPPs too ?

    If I do 4 LUs, I’ll do 4 entries into whatever GPPs I play that night if that’s what you’re asking.

    How does Dante Cunningham do tonight?

    His usage rate is one of the lowest in the league. Last game with no brow and Anderson was even an outlier. He’s a below average rebounder and shoots a very bad percentage for a pf. Imo he may get rostered at 20-25% mark and you should let they be their mistake. I personally like motie, zeller (Williams is questionable) as lower priced guys

    I mean if you’re using the same LUs on all entries in GPPs as well?

    FWIW Barnes was on the Winning card for the $100 Showtime GPP in DK.

    358.5 – I Thomas, JR Smith, Lebron, D Green, Duncan, Rubio, Barnes, Monroe. – he could have crushed even more if he went with J Lin (instead of Barnes) … but that would mean leaving like $700 on the table, and plus who would have thunk Lin would put up against SA.

    Or swapped out Green/Barnes for Lin and Porter…would have been a 30 point difference

  • wystateofmind

    Sims / Adams or Sloan / asik?

    On fanduel Zeller is $4400 and Cunningham is $3600. He can definitely get 20-25 fantasy points which would be fine. Hard to call last game an outlier when the two PF’s ahead of him on the depth chart didn’t play and he is in line for close to 40 minutes again tonight…

    And then used the savings there to pay up for Steph Curry or John Wall and improved his lot even more or to pay for Horford rather than Duncan. . . any way you cut it the winner could have gotten by without Duncan and Barnes in his lineup and still won.

    The whole “you gotta have this guy in your lineup” is just beyond absurd.

    Hot Streak LU is a tricky one today, could be the end of my streak!

  • Wolfedawwg

    @Wolfedawwg said...

    My projections of top 3, based on having an AVERAGE game, Based on DK point system,

    Russell Westbrook OKC PG 59.03
    James Harden HOU SG 55.35
    Kevin Durant OKC SF 54.61

    Slight change in PROJ due to change of Vegas O/U

    Russell Westbrook OKC PG 60.07
    James Harden HOU SG 56.32
    Kevin Durant OKC SF 55.58
    Jrue Holiday NOP PG 36.50

    You could definitely be right on a short slate if you wanna pay up for all the big guns he is worth looking at. IF and only if Williams sits I will be rostering zeller. Better rebounder and playing a much worse defense if Williams sat zeller would be a great play IMO. Cunningham is a bad player on a bad team playing s good defense. I think there are better plays out there but if your rostering Durant westy harden he’s a great way to make it fit. Just don’t forget winning a or placing high in a gpp is about differentiating yourself from the field, harder to do but there are wades to do it

    I swear I have put the same lineup in single entry and multientry and did better in the multientry contest multiple times. Everybody is putting their BEST lineup in the single entry tourneys… In multientry… there are a TON of dead entries you are playing against due to going insanely contrarian trying to take 1 down. If the object is to cash… multientry is the way to go. Its alot easier from what i can see.

    Single entry’s are traps good luck facing everyone’s optimal lineup

    Yeah, but could you win a GPP with going George over Lebron? Or having Kyrie in your lineup? Unless you have Duncan, PJ Tucker and Lin in it as well you might cash, but you cannot win a gpp with a 30 point swing at SF

    Freudian slip right there…..Dwayne Wade is the key to tonight!

    I almost forgot I wanted to give you all a heads up that play fan duel. The 2 dollar satellite to mega slam on 30th they run every night has some soft competition. Cut line has been about 20-30 pts less then gpps and double ups I have already racked up 13 tickets. Great way to get some entries into the slam.

    Cosign… I have 3 of them. I play 1 entry every slate.

    You are able to look at your lineups when they’re finished and select the “optimal” one? If that’s the case why bother entering any others?

  • Chief1Champion

    @dakimbell said...

    I bet you tonight most lineups will have all 3 of Harden, Durant, and WB, there is a ton of value and not many premier options at certain positions tonight..

    Can’t see it with the way Bog has been shooting lately, besides, they have Bog playing the SF slot so I can see it affecting Wayne Ellington more than anybody!
    I’m sure RHJ will be on a minutes restriction as well being away from the game for 3 1/2 months.
