Well, last night we had a Boogie pump-fake and it kind of wrecked my cash game lineup … yet I was still able to cash. That’s the kind of punches you have to roll with NBA DFS. Tonight, we’ve got a smaller slate of games, but sometimes that’s a fun slate to play because there’s simply less optimal lineups you have to think about building.
Here are the target scores we are shooting for tonight:
Draftkings: Al Horford, Lebron
Fanduel: Teague, Thad Young, Horford
Yahoo: D. Russell, Teague,
Here are some value guys that I think have a shot at doing some good tonight. Depending on the site you’re playing on and the number of games on the slate – typically you’re only targeting 1 or 2 of these guys. Honestly tonight – the salaries have flattened a bit – so a more balanced lineup is likely better than shooting for stars/scrubs. There’s not a ton of value yet – but maybe as the day rolls along some lineups will be cracked open.
G – Rondae Hollis-Jefferson
G – Rodney Hood
G – D’Angelo Russell
F – Jared Dudley
C – Bismack Biyombo
11/27 Recap: I was so busy with College football that I didn’t enter the big tournaments I normally play in time before they filled. So I decided to make it a cash game night & ended up having a good night despite laying some eggs in my lineup.
3-1 Cash Games Yahoo
1-2 Tournaments Yahoo
10 – 0 Cash Fanduel
Below is my FanDuel NBA lineup. The DeMarcus Cousins upgrade & eventual ruled out really threw my lineups for a loop. I should have late swapped back to Koufos in my Yahoo lineup but in my FanDuel cash game lineup I had to pivot to Dieng and off Casspi. Thanks to Covington and Harden, the rest of my lineup didn’t have to do much. A blowout & foul trouble helped me with Ish Smith. Aldridge was the biggest let down. I wanted Leonard, but settled for Aldridge because he was cheaper … that was rookie mistake. Turner got hurt late in the game otherwise I think that’s an OK pick. Overall, not great – but got the job done which is what you’re trying to do in cash games.
My Yahoo lineup was better – I just couldn’t get enough games to fill right before tip-off. If you want to play high volume on Yahoo – you really need to start entering games early. I should have late-swapped back to Koufos which was my original lineup but left it as is. Teague was my best call – he was the lowest priced ‘mid-tier’ PG I felt you could roll with in cash games on Yahoo and I probably was correct.
