    How do I track my best ball status?

    Once the contests go live (Thur night), I’d assume they will move to your Live Contests view and you’ll be able to click on your contests/lineups as well as the other teams in each of your 12 person contest/league.

  • Slow draft, emphasis on -S.L.O.W

    Used my best ball ticket on a fast draft, got distracted, and autopicked Damien Williams in the 6th.. if you’re in my league, you’re welcome

    Let’s talk some Thursday/Monday slate.

    The Th/M slate has like 30% of the NFL’s superstars in it and even has an extra prime time game on Monday for us to choose from. What’s everyone’s strategy for this one?

    Generally I like to multi-enter about 10-20 small stakes GPP entries that are significantly wilder than my Sunday Only in an effort to better diversify my players should I crap the bed on Sunday.

    Here are the players worth a roster spot from these extra games I can see. Any of these names stand out to any of you guys more than usual?

    Hou – Watson, Fuller, DJ
    KC – Mahomes, Tyreek, Kelce, maybe Hardman?
    Pitt – Ben, JuJu, Conner
    NYG – Dimes, Saquon, maybe Slayton?
    Tenn – Henry
    Den – Sutton

    Off hand I think that Daniel Jones may have the best upside to low ownership on the slate. He played very well in games with Saquon last year.

    Unless you are taking Lamar or Mahomes you want 3 QBs (all with different bye weeks) and you always want 3 TEs. RB is way over valued in best ball. You need one every week stud and then 4-5 guys who can rotate in. You want lots of high variance WRs in the later rounds and you also want to have at least one pass catcher for every one of your QBs. I try for 2 of each.

    Building a best ball lineup is a lot like building a tournament lineup. You want it to tell a story of a way the season could go. Correlation is your friend.

    Information I could’ve used YESTERDAAYYYYYYYYY! I definitely blew off TE too long, ended up with Hayden Hurst and I’m hoping to nab Herndon with my next pick. And I definitely didn’t realize correlation was so important with Best Ball. D’ohhh!

    A few promos for everyone to be aware of.

    DK Sportsbook is still matching any bet up to $50 on the Chiefs plus 101 points tomorrow.

    FD Sportsbook has a $25 instant match for a deposit going as well.

    Basically that’s a combined free $75 which is more than some of us will make off the whole season 🤣

    I did 7 BB leagues. The sweet spot for me was 4/5 RBs to start, 1 WR in round 2 or 3, spamming high TD variance WRs in rounds 6-9, grabbing 2 TEs varied between the Gronk/Engram level all the way to Fant/Hockenson and 3-4 QBs in the late rounds interspersed with “when in doubt take another RB”.

    I usually had 3 QBs but would go 4 on the teams where I took Fitzpatrick/Tua.

    What happens if a slow draft isn’t completed before kickoff tomorrow night? Thanks in advance

    They have been changing the alloted time to ensure they all finish. Be mindful, one of mine went from 8 hours/pick to 1 hour w shitty communication.

    On DK they sent out emails and like 4 pop up messages as well as the timer update was in the terms so I felt like they did more than enough to communicate the change there. Not sure if that’s the site your talking about.

    I personally think fuller is going to smash

  • wilks3579

    Who’s your ideal Captain tomorrow night for DK Showdown? I keep dumping CEH in there but I’m pretty sure EVERYBODY is doing that. Need to be different if I want to take down that GPP. I have one with Fuller that I like. Also been avoiding Kelce and sticking RSJ in my lineup to be unique, might need to get both in the same lineup.

    “Lol I missed you most Scarecrow”

    Not sure how to take this- But I was just being honest, Best Balls are really worthless checking until December, You can’t change anything- Some of my buddies start checking them when their season long craps the bed. Something to look forward to.

    Mom is still single and Covid free- Thanks for asking

  • parrothead112

    So if you don’t pay Lineup HQ doesn’t generate any projections? Or am I hopefully missing something? I am likely missing something.

    “ Doug Pederson says it’s a possibility that they might manage Miles Sanders early in the season after Miles missed most of training camp.”

    Not very surprised given how limited he’s been, but definitely wavers my confidence in playing him

    All projections are behind the paywall now. You can’t even use the optimizer to build up to 20 lineups without paying for it now. The days of free optimizers/ projections are over since that is the trend across the board. They are right to do so as it takes work to make all of those works so they should get paid for it. I hated when I paid for premium seeing so much stuff given away for free making me feel like a chump to be paying for it.

    Fair enough. I am a very casual NFL DFS player. Do most people actually make enough money at DFS to pay monthly fees?

    Actually I’m pretty sure “everybody” will be using a QB as captain. Fuller’s not a bad choice but David Johnson may have more TD equity than anyone on the field if Bill O Brien’s likely game script pans out.

  • thedkexperience

    I can do 20 lineups by hand. Past that, no way. This is also why I really don’t play 150 entry tournaments outside of 1 lottery ticket.

    Most people who play DFS lose money. That’s how the rake works.

    Meant I missed you, honesty and all. I know my BB roster is set by DK. Just wanted to peak. Saw it this morning in my contests

    I’ve been playing fantasy for 22 years and DFS for about 8. I’ve only been profitable at DFS the last 3-4 years with most of my winnings coming in the past 2. It takes A LOT of effort and bankroll management to be profitable.

    Also, I’m not a cash game player. I’ll play on occasion but my general line of thinking doesn’t usually match up with the masses. Most of my profit has been on single entry tournaments. If you are not realistic about game selection you’re not going to be successful.
