Thursday, March 10th Fan Duel Line Up Suggestions

The last few days I have been just awful with my line up combinations on Fan Duel.

I’ve had a few scores within reach of at least a cash out, but nothing really exciting to speak of.

I play mainly the larger GPP tournaments and maybe I could have caught a few wins on a few of the smaller 10 team leagues, double ups or 50/50’s.

Being a tournament player, I like the excitement for the potential for a big winner on my line ups, that’s why I stick to the larger GPP’s.

You just have to live with the cold spells when they occur during your tournament play.

Tonight we have a 4 game NBA slate on Fan Duel starting at 7:30PM

My main tournament plays tonight are on the $1-$20K Dribble (single entry), the $1-$75K NBA Swat and the $1-$10K Baby Swat with these two line-ups:

Sunday, March 6th Fan Duel NBA Tournament Line Up

Last night was the first time in a long time that I didn’t hit at least some sort of cash out on any of my Fan Duel NBA plays.

Why? Well there were a few reasons.

B Portis CHI 1.7 points, T Young BKN 0 points (DNP, rest), Wellington BKN 9 points, K Humphries ATL 6.7 points.

That’s bound to happen when you use some high risk/high reward players on your tournament line ups.

My highest line up score last night was just 273 points. The first place winning scores on my contests were in the 344 to 388 range. Minimum payout scores were 285 to 300 points in all the contests I played.

Oh well, I  just have to get back on track this week.

I’m playing a couple of Full Slate Contests (3:30pm start) Today.

Wednesday March 2nd Express Line Up Advice

I had 1 of my 2 Express Line Ups Cash on Tuesday Night.

Tuesday winners

I also ended up entering the nightly Free Roll and put in a $2 After Hours Line Up when I found out that S. Curry was indeed a scratch.

another win

The $2 /$150K After Hours NBA Shot did not fill until the very end and had quite a few duplicate line ups. My entry bounced around from a 0 win, up to $7 and held at $2.35 for a while but settled at a $1.32 (that’s the first time I ever won less than I paid to enter).

First place won by a 348.50 score and was shared by 98 players, each won $404.90. 2 players split 2nd place for a $100 payout.

Who were the difference makers on the winning line ups?

D Schroder ATL PG scored 31.1 to J Teague ATL PG 14.4

B Bogdanovic SF BKN 31.9 to H Barnes SF GS 22.6

Those guys made all the difference for the big winners Tuesday night.

The Wednesday NBA slate has 11 NBA games.

The Express Slate has UTA at TOR and POR at BOS

The Late Night Slate has LAL at DEN and OKC at LAC

Sunday, February 28th Express Line Up Picks

Fan Duel NBA Line Up suggestions for Sunday, Feb. 28th

Saturday Night proved to be a good day once again, we hit on 2 of our 4 line ups on Fan Duel.

Feb 27th Wins I hit on 2 of my 3 Express line ups and missed completely on my one Late Night line up. I went into the evening thinking the Express contess would be the more difficult to catch a win on with all the high salaried players to choose from, but I was incorrect.

The OT on the GSW at OKC game again cost me a top 100 finish. I was at 98th overall at the end of regulation and dropped to 198th overall after OT with my 341.4 score. BTW, 370 points took first place and 346.4 was the 100th place score.

This makes me think, do I want to start splitting my player selections on 2 game slates a little more evenly? IDK, I may start looking at this strategy. I do know that going with whoever you think will score the most points for each position is always the best strategy, but I’ve been burned twice this week on OT Games.

Looking at today’s NBA game Slates on Fan Duel, we have an early slate starting at 1PM ET with CLE at WAS and a 3:30 PM game with CHA at ATL.

The Fan Duel early slate has a $2 entry, $150K GTD NBA Shot which looks especially tempting.

Here are the Line Ups I’m using for the Early Tournaments on Fan Duel:

Fan Duel NBA 2/24/15 Express Line Up Advice

Since the NFL season ended, I have been tinkering with the NBA Contests available on Fan Duel.

Why Fan Duel, you may ask?

I have found that the variety of contests/contest schedules offered on Fan Duel fits my play requirements better than most of the other DFS sites.

I am more of a instant satisfaction kind of guy, I really like to have a quicker decision on my daily fantasy plays.

I have been concentrating on the nightly NBA Express and Late Night schedules on Fan Duel.

Fan Duel NBA Express Schedule Feb. 24thFan Duel NBA Late Night Schedule Feb. 24th

I work evenings 4PM to 12AM and have plenty of time to set my evening line ups every morning and have ample opportunity at work, to monitor my daily plays live on the Fan Duel Mobile App each evening.

Now, when it comes to NBA Fantasy, I am still a novice, I rely on the many expert sites I visit daily for insight and player suggestions.

I spend most of my pre-work time, 11AM to 1PM researching my daily NBA plays and building my line-ups. I mainly play $1 and $2 contests, and an occasional $5 line-up.

I concentrate on the Express and Late Night Fan Duel NBA Contests, mostly the $5 NBA Lay-ups, $2 NBA shots, $2 Mini Shots, $1 NBA Dribblers, $1 NBA Shots, $2 – 100 player leagues and $1 – 100 player leagues.

These contests all involve guarantees up to $20K to $50K and allow multi entries in almost all cases. If you want a little less volatility with your line ups, play the $1, $2 and $5 Express and Late Night Fan Duel leagues with 5, 10 and 20 players.

A few things I have learned from playing these select contests:

  1. You need to pick on the bad team defenses exclusively. To be honest, teams like the 76er’s, Lakers and Bulls consistently give up big point totals to opposing players.
  2. These small 2, 3 and 4 NBA game contests will allow for stronger fantasy line ups and may involve many fantasy point  ties and contest prize splits. The key to these is finding the one key player that is ignored by the masses who can put up a stat line that will make the difference.
  3. Playing the larger guaranteed express and late night contests, even if you happen to tie some one with your line up, will offer some very nice payouts.
  4. I will often multi enter line ups I really like, often into $1, $2 and $5 contests, hoping to multiple my winnings on my efforts.
  5. I cannot tell you how many times I have had $500 to $1000 win nights only to be reduced to small wins on my full slate contests (late games always seem to screw me), these express and late night contests end almost always at the same time and if you are in a winning position, it almost always sticks…….
  6. You need to closely monitor the injury statuses, even more so than your NFL play. A major sit out by any player in the NBA will increase play time (in minutes for back-ups) for lower priced back-ups and significantly improve their value.
  7. You need to find a fantasy source (Rotowire, Fantasy Pros, Number Fire, etc.) that you can trust and you must use them consistently to take advantage of their insights and knowledge of the NBA.
  8. I personally use several sources and go with the consensus of top daily plays,concentrating on the express/late night games and players.
  9. Number Fire fantasy advice/info is offered on Fan Duel for free your convenience.
  10. Sometimes you’ll get a better line up with only one or the other slate, only play both if your extremely happy with both game slates, express and late…….

Daily Line Up Suggestions

Starting today, I will posting, what I think is the best NBA fantasy line-up for the Daily Fan Duel “Express” or “Late Night” contests.

Keep in mind every body else posts a Free Fan Duel full slate NBA line-up, but they always keep you guessing on the Mini Slates offered on Fan Duel. I won’t……..

I will posting these NBA lineups daily, about 1 PM.

If I do not think the line ups are worth your time or mine, I will not make any suggestions that day.

I do not play, just to play. I will only show what I think will work that evening.
