    No chalk mid range guys to CPT like Rondo. A bit trickier than the other series was.

    My Lebron 2x, Harden 1.5x, Kuzma 1.2x, Tucker, Caruso FD LU came 8 points from first, dammit! Plus the wife “moved back in” last night after I told her it was done yesterday. Hopefully $100k today. Just 1 LU.

    Kawhi 2x, Joker 1.5x, contrarian 1.2x, semi-contrarian, contrarian.

    Clippers going down today it appears.

  • SkateFiend

    The best thing about another Clippers meltdown will be the exit of Doc Rivers.

    Excellent!

    I was dreading watching that game, now I can look forward to it.

    And who can blame D’Antoni for wanting out of Houston? Good for him.

    truly bizarre

    13 game streak on ESPN on Clippers

    they were up big at the half so I thought it was in the bag

  • ScofieldReturns

    Shoot! It does. Contests are already up on FD

  • superjon

    Hopefully I lose what I make today on MNF tomorrow so I won’t have to worry about playing on Tuesday.

    Love these snake drafts. No projections yet so people put it on auto draft and take guys like Noah and Haslem in the first round.

    Edit

    Last one I just did, the guy with the first pick took Beverley, Craig, Crowder, Milsap, Dragic and Williams. Obviously on auto draft without building a que
    I took Jokic, Tatum, Bam, Murray, Smart and Herro.

    I just did one. I got

    Dragic, Murray, Kawhi, Tatum, Bam, Jokic

    Vs

    Lou, Walker, Brown, Butler, PG, Harrell

    I have found an edge by getting into them early, before rotogrinders posts their projections. Build your queue then enter the draft. There are at least a few people that blindly enter. If they are not paying attention, it drafts automatically based on the order the players are in the pool. For instance, for Tuesday, the order they are listed at is Noah, Haslem, Williams, Iggy, Dragic, Millsap, Pat Pat, George, Hayward, etc.

    You probably want to build a Queue something like Kawhi, Joker, Tatum, George, etc.

    You get one of these blind drafters you are at a huge advantage.

    Just had another where the guy with the second pick took Noah.

    It was just freezing for me. Had my queue set up so it did matter. Must be what is happening to them

    Drafters.com will actually give you an text alert (if you enable it) once the draft begins. That site is looks like a Geocities holdover and you have to wait more for contests to fill, but competition is tougher than FD IMO.

    I have no idea why FD had Noah ranked that high. For a second I thought something had happened to Zubic, but even then, there’s no way I would pick him first. FD also had MPJ and Onounby ranked lower than they should be, and it’s easy pick someone like Marcus Morris before them.

    I’m also a huge fan of snake draft and currently winning at more than 50% clip, although I’m debating whether that has to with the current playoff format. I tried snake drafts at the now defunct Draft and didn’t really have too much success there.

    Just did another one. I had the first pick.
    I got Leonard, Bam, Murray, Kemba, Smart, Crowder.
    Guy picking second took Jokic, Noah, Haslem, Millsap, Williams, Iggy
    Guy picking third got Tatum, George, Butler, Brown, Dragic, Harris

    Guess which guy was on autodraft without a queue?

    I have been doing pretty well on them too. I think FD just has the players listed in a random order.

    I’m pretty high on Noah/Haslem so it has to be the 3rd guy

    Some of these snake drafts have been pretty interesting though. Time moves quickly and if you are not prepared, it autodraft’s the next player on the list after 30 seconds.
