    Here we go Folks, A beauty of a Slate on Sunday.

    Even the Early game only slate on FD looks very very playable.

    One question…Is Shaq Harrison gonna get over 25 mins again. ..and is that almost entirely dependent on Arcidiacano being out.

    Yeah if Archie is out I’ll play some Shaq. Main slate on DK is easy. Just built my dummy lineup. A few Bucks, a couple Suns, a couple Mavs, and your favorite Stud

    I like Shaq but he has a tougher matchup while Delon Wright has the same matchup Shaq just had and is a much better player with possibly THJ and Curry out. Also Jordan McGlaughlin gets the race track game vs New Orleans which makes me like him over Shaq as well but I do like Shaq.

  • monarch

    Also find it annoying that the Suns-Bucks isnt on either FD slate.

    I’m glad it isn’t on the main FD slate but surprised it isn’t on the early one. Guess you could play the all day slate but who wants to play for just tickets

    I’ll have Wright again and you may need both Shaq and Jordan on early slate. Maybe Lavine plays and we dont have to mess with Shaq

    Last night was one of the first times I actually lost money when playing 100 or more lineups. I can usually expect to break even most of the time.

    HQ isn’t up yet, so no idea what plays I like yet.

    I will be playing 1 in the Early, and 100 in the Main (99 Optimized and 1 Hand Built)

    I have a question for the guys that run max entry every night, i currently play one lineup a night in mid to higher stakes cash games, im thinking about making the jump over to max entering, how do you guys delegate your time throughout the day? I spend the whole day perfecting one lineup i cant imagine combing through over 100 to make sure they are up to my standards, or do you just use a good optimizer? Ive tried in the past with nfl but didnt have much success ive always been better at single entry, any insight would be appreciated thank you

  • mbunner23

    3:30 slate just stack NO/Minn with maybe a piece or two from CHI or Brooklyn.

    Instead of spending the day perfecting one lineup I’ll spend a few hours getting my player pool and projections adjusted. Then wait for any news, make any changes and get exposures adjusted. Then 10 mins before lock I’ll build lineups and import to DK, FD, and Yahoo

    Thank you, i think its the bankroll aspect that scares me as well for me to max enter The way i want to, im looking at around 3x my current nightly amount

    I’m a hand builder by nature so I agonize over like 10 lineup cores then enter each 15 times into a tournament if I’m gonna max enter then I just start make what I deem are some necessary pivots it has worked for me pretty well when there isn’t a ton of slate breaking news right at the end but it’s a lot of work I usually run a few optimizers to see what they are spitting out but by far and away my best finishes are when the optimizers get it wrong and my own takes are right that being said it can be ugly when I’m wrong.

    Yea i have a similar approach in my single build i use the optimizers to see what everyone else is gonna be on then adjust accordingly not all chalk is bad obviously but i like to make reasonable pivots, like last night bog over barton won me a bunch of money

    Yep every lineup I make will most likely include Bledsoe/Middleton/Ersan

    Dont know, havent done any research. Looks like they are both 3k so I’m sure one of them is in play

  • ripking

    Luckily they are both 3k on Dk. So plug in whoever starts.
