Short slate of NBA action on the schedule tonight. There’s an early game at 12:30 so make sure you get some lineups in early if you want action then. I haven’t dug into the lobby’s too much – but if I recall Sunday’s have been kind of light in the bigger GPP’s so I’ll likely stick to cash game lineups. There’s a limited number of sleepers on Yahoo/Draftkings – and I don’t think you need to go with many anyway. Yahoo has tons of $10 – $14 players, but those should be used with care in cash game scenarios as well.
Here are the target scores we are shooting for: These include the early game, but even without it – you’re going to want to build lineups within 10% of this range.
Here are the guys I’m rolling with in cash games:
Draftkings: Blake Griffin,
Fanduel: Thad Young, Westbrook,
Yahoo: Thad Young, Lowry
Here are the value guys I’m going to be targeting. It will likely grow/change as we move through the day.
G – Raymond Felton
F – Luis Scola
C – Alex Len
C – Bismack Biyombo
11/21 Results: Coming off one of my better days this NBA season, I was feeling good. Ended up 0-6 in tournaments last night across DK/FD as I was slightly effected by Indiana not needing to play starters in the 4th quarter. Overall I’m not really disappointed at all – considering I looked at the winning lineups last night – many had Jordan Hill and other players that were off my radar for the most part … and played well above any expectation.
My best lineup was one where I tried to create a balanced lineup with guys who had upside potential. What I ended up getting was a lot of balance – but not much upside. It’s possible in the shorter slates I should cut back on GPPs and do more cash … since this is likely a lineup that cashes a good % of the time, but I do like playing GPPs on short slates because the winning lineups can be easier to put together. Back at it today!
