    have Biz Markie JR Smith and Cory Joseph tonight with my beasts going tomorrow

  • ratwaters

    If you have Biz, Frye, Patterson in the same lineup I know you all smiles…..

  • satchmo77

    I have to admit, most of my lineups are dead, but it sure is nice to have a 46, and a 44 with curry,westy,Durant, etc still to go.

    If only 10% have biz then why do you think you won’t cash? If you are in a small pool then yes but larger ones you can.

    Sub par games by Westbrook and Curry could help. If you don’t have them.

    No Lineups for SaahilSud

    I’ve always wondered exactly how to read these. For instance, by quick math, I see at PG taking up 82% of players already played. So now I’m thinking there’s only 18% left worth of ownership between Westbrook, Curry, Livingston and maybe Barbosa? That’s impossible right? What am I missing here? I’m guessing you have to account for the multi-positional possibilities of DK?

    If my math holds true though then that’s good news for me as my lineups are based much heavier on the Sunday game. I just can’t imagine I’ve got Westbrook and Curry in a few lineups together and they’re both under 10% owned. Someone help me here.

    you forget that you can use up to 3 PG’s in a LU on DK…PG, G, and util…i do sometimes just because PG’s have the ball a lot

    Should have known only a matter of time for Biz but at his price too high at the time. He will be even higher the next time.

    His salary actually came down $200 on DK.

    i feel like ezeli is a total trap. would’t shock me if he did nothing and bogut went for 20 plus. its always the opposite of what you think in these playoffs never chase last game since everygame is different.

    anyone agree bogut>ezeli?

    Yes. Festus and Mo just as likely to have 5 Fpts as 15. They only play 8-12 minutes. Bogut might play 20 so theoretically a higher floor/ceiling, but he rarely shoots and he’s not getting 25 RB’s like Biz did last night. Trying to get exposure to all but doubt that any C’s in the Sun game hit, let alone ‘crush’ value.

    The ownership percentages aren’t a reflection of some % of position, but rather % of lineups. Not as if capped at 100% (sum total of PG % ownership € 100), as after all; one can play 3 PG“s in every DK’s LU. Unless Lowry, Irving, Cojo, Della in 100%, there’s no way to guess even that Curry, Westbrook, et all won’t be the highest % owned in slate. I have Westbrook and Curry in 100% of my LU’s and Cojo in about 60%, other punt PG’s in 80% of them… Your misunderstanding is understandable, but your interpretation of ownership percentage is indeed incorrect.

    In a perfect world, yes (and no, I don’t). I only went Biz last minute in 1 (of 12) LU’s as seemingly not that I didnt believe in his potential or value (cheaper than Adams, historically equal ceiling and getting all TOR mins at ‘C’ vs. sharing w/ Kanter), More about time spent mired in the muck trying to solve the “C” puzzle and ‘guess correctly’, ‘hedge bets’ & “cover all bases’ (likely to no avail) in Sun game. In hindsight, (POint 1): I was stupid for overlooking Biz)…. (Point 2: ) ‘Punts” are not player selections, they are strategy roster/salary concessions that are a byproduct of tact taken. Ergo; If okay with your strategy; Don’t get too high when the punts pay; too low when they don’t. (Frye and PatPat were not punts but risky plays that paid off when seemingly better options existed – still might (Iggy/Barnes) – in that ‘no mans land’ between 3500-7200) Good Luck to All.

    @TripleCee said...

    All of my LU’s with JR, have K Love… hmmmmm

    I preach this point; it falls on deaf ears; all the time. One player selection dictates another in 90% of LU’s. It’s not that hard to figure out. In this slate especially true. If taking a F not over $10K on DK’s, must logically play a player in the $4-6K range; either another Center or guys like Iggy/Barnes/JR/Ibaka/TT. Anyone trying to roster 3-4 guys at 10K will not; cannot have a mid-range starter in tow.

    Hopefully you’re not on FD… That’s definitely not working there..

    DK’s. Sorry for oversight.
