    Can someone explain the logic behind why I see so many Thursday night stacks in 50/50s on Fanduel? Conventional wisdom seems to say to fade the Thursday games, but I routinely see 5%+ of lineups in a 50/50 that play the majority of their lineup in Thursday games.

    Are these players simply action junkies?

    Are they hedging the Thursday night game by going heavy in a few lineups, but playing many more lineups where they’ve faded the game? This would make more sense in GPP play than 50/50’s, so it doesn’t seem optimal to me.

    Are they doing it to gather percentage played of Thursday night players for Sunday games?

    Any thoughts?

    Maybe for the “what if” moment…..

    I think they do it for several reasons, many of which you touched on in your post. All I know for sure is that I use it to my advantage.

    They are just looking for a sweat on the current game and not thinking about optimal strategy. Just good old fashioned -ev gambling.

    I think people like seeing their name at the top of the leaderboard. “Hey look! I’m winning 250k!!”

    I guess it’s possible that they have a big day of Home Depot, and maybe some Bed Bath and Beyond on Sunday, so they only want to stress over their results night per week.

    I have explained Fanduel to a new people and I think that new people do this because they are confused. At times it is a good strategy. The Bears vs. Cowboys game for example. If you could get in Romo, Murray and Forte and fill in with Cole Beasley. Most games don’t make sense.

    Usually is best to fade Thursday night games when entering Thurs->Monday slates.

    But it depends on the game.
    I semi-stacked last week DAL-CHI game and did really well.

    I almost always fade Thursday games..last Thursday and Thanks giving were obvious exceptions.

    There are a few people who do it just to get a gauge on percentage owned on Fan Duel. ON DK it makes no sense at all.
