    Yes

  • dominicanpapi

    I like how some of these players are out indefinitely with the season being over 9 days from now lol. Just rule them out for the rest of the year.

    Can you go Jeffries/Lamb on FD?

    1) Essentially yes, however there little tweaks that and adjustments made otherwise you’re simply deposition’ money and gettin’ no return.

    2) Depends entirely on the slate and also if a team is in contention or not at this point in the season. Research usually consists of USAGE, USAGE, USAGE, minutes played, the matchup, rotations, any news articles that covers the teams/players on the slate, (you can find where the motivational factors might lay and that may further assist in the player selection process), narratives i.e. b-days, former teams, hometown, etc.

    3) Stats can be a little misleadin’, I tend to focus mostly on usage, minutes and matchup. As I stated before, I think usage is the most important to note given the matchup and opportunities presented because if you can find a way to pin that down, it’s almost akin to bein’ in the coaches head and knowin’ who their go to guy is.

    4) My player pools tend to be medium sized dependin’ on ownership, usage(there goes that word again), matchup and price point. For example take last nights slate on FD, there was two guys at PG at 9900, Kyrie and Steph. Steph in comparison to his skill set was, in my estimation, right around his price point (low end $9,200 – high end $10,100) and had the easier matchup, but OKC isn’t a team to necessarily lay down and die because their not an overall great team. However, he was super highly owned, can’t remember the percentage, but it was somewhere near 45%. You want to be as different from the field as you can so you gotta take some risk. Kyrie (low end $9,000 – high end $10,000), tougher matchup, but it was him and Durant who get all the usage and he was at like 6% owned. No brainer for me, but obviously you still mix in Steph just to cover your bases. Again usage and minutes played I believe are two key factors to rely incorporate into the entirety of your DFS Strategy.

    5) It’s almost impossible to win anything doin’ 1 LU, but if I’m doin the main slate for the $3.33-$7.77 price range I do only a few and try to be as contrarian as possible while also notin’ matchup and value points. If it’s $.05-$.25 I do maximum 10-20 simply because there’s so much news flowin’ throughout the day, i find it damn near impossible to keep up with everythin’ unless you do this for a livin’.

    6) There’s no sixth question, but pick your spots. If you dont wanna pay for a DFS strategy site, try to configure your own if you have that type of ability. If not Awesemo has days where it’s free to look at the ownership tool on their site. I find that to be quite helpful. Also trust your gut, if you find yourself really wantin’ to pick someone and you feel stupid about it, pick them anyway, especially if you did your do diligence with research. it’s better to pick the guys YOU want based on feel and research than to pick a guy you’re iffy bout only see the guy you wanted have a quality fantasy day. That way you’re beatin’ yourself up about it later. it won’t always work out, but I find that when I do that, I can at least live with the results knowin’ I chose who I wanted.

    Hopefully this is helpful in someway,
    Cheers!

    Preciate the response! Definitely agree that matchup + minutes + usage is where it’s at

    Do you use a site for projections? Or how do you try to gauge usage aside from obvious injuries? N does it take a long time to look everything up every day?

    I use Awesemo for ownership when it’s free, but primarily I watch the games and take note of who is primary scorer/how the team chooses to run it’s offense, who’s active on defense, who’s lazy, who fouls a lot, yada, yada. Yeah it’s a lot to take in, but it’s also partially instinctual for me. If you wanna use a strategy site I say go for it if you have the disposable income, it definitely makes things simpler. Just because other people are usin’ the same sites, doesn’t mean they have the same insight, feel or have the understandin’ of how to configure an, “optimal”, LU even if they use an optimizer. That doesn’t guarantee anything, if it did, then those people would be winning’ big bucks every time they played, which isn’t the case.

    Seems like a good blowout spot (that sounds weird when I say it out loud), but I’ve seen crazier shit happen. The Rockets beat the Bucks not too long ago and that should have been a blowout. Don’t underestimate how prideful these guys can be…that said, you’re prolly right.
