    Well I’m Canadian for starters so it’s not my Turkey Day but there is a NCAA FB game with Utah State hosting New Mexico on after the 2 NFL games and a couple of evening NCAA Hoops games.

    With respect to interacting with people; we are on a lockdown so we cannot have people over nor can we visit other households for about 3-4 weeks (or longer) which is fine with me. Most stores are also closed so I’m not getting dragged out this year for Black Friday or Christmas shopping (an added bonus of Covid lockdowns !).

    Oh and Friday has a nice slate of college games as well !

    well at least that’s better than the Hallmark Channel!

    don’t look now but DK may be tinkering with the T’giving “no brainer” contest. I see a note on the site to stand by for updates. Assuming the Balt v Pitt game still plays on Sun, I’m not sure why they would need to do anything other than score and payout 3 days later.

    What no-brainer contest ?

    Everything for Thursday has the Pit-Bal game as off the slate and in red.

    DK won’t include that game as they want to churn all the rake they can by people playing on Thursday and again on Sunday – they don’t want money tied up for 3-4 days. This is why they make small shitty contests for the Thur-Mon slates and don’t offer a big SNF/MNF 2 gamer anymore because they can churn more revenue/rake off the separate Showdown slates.

    How does this sound guys ? Say I do 10 lineups. I’m going 5 on Watson. 3 Staff, 1 Dalton, 1 Smith. Thoughts?

    Sounds like you will be matching the field pretty much for ownership

    calm down, BIF. LOL, I was talking about their Sportsbook contest. My mistake not labeling it that way. Sheesh.

    Sounds equivalent to going to the laundromat, putting a fiver into the change machine and only retrieving $4 in quarters

    This Thanksgiving is gonna suck. What are we supposed to do now after day football is over, we’re all bloated and drunk? Play board games with people we see once a year and really don’t like? We may even have to talk with one another.

    Well, if those people are politically opposite of you, make sure you drink a lot and then bring up the election. Make sure you video the ensuing chaos.

  • truegrinder

    If you want to be different tomorrow play both WASH running backs

    LOL. That would surely be a quick path to a family divorce. No thanks. Sports is the last bastion of semi-normalcy for me.

    What’s the point of doing the FD Main slate tomorrow if you’re not MME? Unless you think Steven Mitchell, Cam Sims, Steven Sims Jr, Hall, Coutee or Pollard put up a 20 spot.

  • zovyn

    FD update:

    My missing Thursday night Showdown slate entries have now been refunded and show in my history.

    Thursday-only full slate – All BAL@PIT 8:20PM Thursday players have been removed from the pool. Unlikely to be replaced with a Sunday version. Looks like they’ll run it as a crappy 2-game slate. Meh.

    Snake draft LUs for Thursday-only slate – BAL@PIT 8:20PM Thursday players have been replaced with BAL@PIT 1:15PM Sunday players. Looks like they’ll ride it out until Sunday scoring. Best way to keep the money they’ve already collected, I guess.

    THUR-MON slate – Same as Snake draft – BAL@PIT 8:20PM players have been removed from the pool and now BAL@PIT 1:15PM Sunday players are available in the pool, but you need to re-roster them.

    MAIN, SUN-MON, 3-man Challenge, and Superflex slates remain unchanged. BAL@PIT not added to the pool.

    This has been your Fanduel update. :P

    Yikes, if my guy Brendan can’t find a way to be different I might as well just withdraw all my entries now. Showdown slates you have no issues and now with an extra game you’re at loss for words? Come on bro, I was counting on you for some differentiating insight.

    I’m toying around with some QB and opposing team defense lineups

  • DarthPasta

    How is WAS QB pressure?

    Ehh… well… there are at 2-game slates on FD every week – usually SunNight-MonNight and MonNight-ThurNight so it’s really not that different. I’ll lower my investment there and focus in a little more on any 2nd half and 4th quarter Showdown slates available, I imagine.

    How is WAS QB pressure?

    WAS is averaging just under 4 sacks/game – signficant Home>>Away splits there, though. fwiw Roto’s show earlier today on Sirius was touting their QB pressure ability. Of the 4 DSTs I’d definitely say they get the most pressure overall if that’s the only question. None of these 4 O-lines impress me on any level, really.

    Just wondering how much their quality of pressure would put Lamb/Schultz in play over Cooper…Dalton having to dump off sooner, etc.

    Washington had six sacks against Dallas four weeks ago

  • SkateFiend

    In a two game slate, is it viable to just stack one team? Something like QB, 2 WRs, 1 RB, and the team’s defense?

    The difference is that the Red Rifle is really really bad under pressure. Was is far away the best Def of this group, especially against the Pass.
