    First time poster, I just got into DFS recently and need to qualify tomorrow for one of these major big-ticket March Madness tournaments. I’ve been scouting it out, and I like a lot of the players on LaTech as safe bets for 4x output. And I like the Montana big man Breunig, but I am looking for gems on William and Mary, Central Michigan, UC Davis, and some others. They really jacked up the value of the Murray State 2 standouts Williams and the other guy, but there has to be a lot of value in these scrubs playing against teams sulking with no motivation since they didn’t make the Big Dance. Anyways, I like

    Montana: Breunig, Gregory, and Dunn Jr.
    Tulsa: Johnson and Woodard
    NC Central: Jawara, HIlliard
    UC Davis: Fox & Hawkins
    Hampton: Chievous
    Rhode Island: Hassan Martin?

    BYU has good plays i you are willing to splurge on Collinsworth or Haws, which you may be able to do if you hit jackpot in some of these scrub games. I welcome any other ideas people have on players to watch for in these not-so entertaining games.I know there are others, I am just looking for surefire 35+ point performers or 4-5x value potential. Thanks

    You’re not asking for much huh? ;^)

    tomorrow’s contests actually look fun but are an absolute crapshoot

    Lots of fast pace vs slower pace teams. Be wary of Martin, he is an excellent shot blocker, which will do very little in that regard against a team like Iona, that loves to jack up 3’s. Kiruta seems to get more boards nowadays. Just my H.O.

    Breunig’s a good play. He’s been seeing a few more minutes lately, is decently consistent, and averages 4.2x value in his last 10 games.

    I’d avoid Gregory because he’s liable to lay a dud (look at his last four games). Floor is abysmal.

    Woodard is overpriced on both sites. Who is Johnson?

    I like Hassan Martin and Karamo Jawara, but not Chievous. I can’t afford inconsistency on such a big slate.

    I actually think tonight’s slate is a pretty fun one (although it would be nice if FD had the play-in games).

    The only problem I’m having is finding enough forwards.

    I’ll be playing the DK NIT/first Four slate. Hoping the madness will get the casuals into the games starting tonight as I’m finding it pretty easy to build a roster I feel comfortable with.

    Forwards are awful tonight. I could play 8 guards and 1 forward I think.

    Forward is definitely much weaker than Guard tonight. both my UTIL spots on DK are going to guards in every lineup. There are a few teams that I think have a significant advantage inside, but the difficulty for me is figuring out how these teams will come out and play each other.

    I will say for the most part I’m avoiding teams from the power conferences with the exception of Ole Miss as they will be playing up in tempo, but I don’t want to be let down by teams who don’t take the NIT seriously.

    Also, I’m not one for narratives generally but I think there’s value to be found in seniors on the schools from non-power conferences. Even when their best players at certain positions are Freshman and Sophmores I feel like the coaches actively give extra minutes and oppurtunities to seniors in their last hurrah. That and the “This is my last chance” narrative have me leaning seniors in any close decisions I’ve been making.

    That is a great point !

    Can you still not afford that inconsistency : p

  • gjtgjtgjt

    Boy was I wrong on Hassan, in my defense, Laury and English went full blind fold throw up prayers. I thought the coach might actually try to win…And then Kiruta gets the Tech while him and Hassan are even and he gets banished.

    I find it odd that FD has nit games mixed with the first 4 tomorrow considering they are playing by separate rules…

    Play in games have separate rules than nit games didn’t think they would mix but they did for tomorrow

    Looks like FD might have given us another value play today
