Saturday, March 12 Fan Duel NBA Line Up Suggestion

I made one of the biggest mistakes a daily fantasy player could make yesterday on my NBA line up. I set a line up that I was happy with and then started reading some “expert” pick advice and changed my mind.  NEVER allow yourself to change your initial thoughts on your line up decisions (unless there is an injury involved). If you read something you think will work, make a new line up using that information, but always keep your original line up intact.

I ended up setting my line ups on the fly yesterday and produced one small pay-out.

Friday Win

My mistake was switching out L. Stephenson MEM SG who scored 52.4 points for E Moore CHI SG who scored 15.9 points. I had Stephenson in my original line up but switched him when D Rose was ruled out for CHI. That cost me a win on my 10 team contest and my Main Slate $10K tournament.

I had 2 lineups scoring over 317 points, which is a good night. But scoring was really high last night and you would have needed 350+points for a semi-decent win on almost every contest.

The Main Slate $10K was won with a 399.6 point score and 1st place took home $750 for that score.

I’m just going with the Main Slate contests tonight, I couldn’t come up with a line up I liked on the Late night or After Hours contests.

There are no Express Contests tonight on Fan Duel.

The Daily $250 NBA free roll starts at 7PM on Fan Duel tonight.

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:

Wednesday, March 9th Express Line up

Running late today, here’s the line up I’m using on Fan Duels Wednesday NBA Express Contests.

Wednesday Express Line up

H. Whiteside MIA C missed yesterdays practice with an illness, monitor his status.

A. Drummond DET C is who I’ll switch him out with if H. Whiteside sits tonight.

Tuesday, March 8th Fan Duel line up suggestions

I had a terrible night on Fan Duel last night, injuries, line up switches and me not paying attention all killed my scores.

Let’s see if I can do better tonight.

Tuesday March 8th Express Line Up

Tuesday March 8th Express Line Up

As always, there is a $250 NBA Free Roll tonight on Fan Duel starting at 7:30PM

Always monitor your NBA Fantasy Players statuses

There is something that every one who plays NBA Fantasy has to realize and understand. You must monitor every players status once you set your NBA fantasy line ups.

Last night for example, I had to change a few of my line ups right before the 7PM tip off with late injury news /scratch information.

You must remember, The NBA is quite different from the NFL.

Sure there are more injuries on the NFL, but you have a week of information to prepare/alter your line ups when playing Fantasy Football.

On Fantasy NBA, you sometimes only have 10 or 15 minutes to react to late player scratches for injuries, rest or personal issues. NBA Fantasy is not a set your line up and wait kind of game, you must really be into it and pay attention each and every day up until game time and make sure every one is playing.

This is especially true on Fan Duel, the line ups lock as soon as the first game of the slate tips off.

Last night, Vucevic ORL was a late scratch and D Green GSW ended up playing (I took him out earlier) for my Late Night Line-up. I missed this information and ended with a big 0 for my center position and wasn’t even close to competing on that contest.

Monday, March 7th Fan Duel NBA Line Up suggestions

Line Ups Updated 3:30PM & 6PM

First off, you had to know that Golden State would lose to a lessor team eventually, but the Lakers???????

Wow, who saw that coming? I figured a easy GSW win with the starters sitting out the 4th quarter.

Well that just shows you, sometimes the best match up in fantasy, just isn’t all it’s cut out to be………..

Luckily, I stayed pretty much away from that game (except for K Thompson and  a couple of Lakers)  and concentrated on the rest of the Sunday NBA schedule.

My efforts seemed to work, I ended up Sunday ahead of the game.

Still, I had 3 line ups that scored over 352 points but still only hit some small payouts. I doubled my buy-ins, so I do consider that a success.

The $1/$20K Dribbler was won with a 433.7 score (a $2000 win), which was 80 points over what my line ups produced……

I cashed on the Sunday Dribblers, here are my results:

Sunday Dribber Wins

Don’t ask me what happened on the daily $250 free roll, do you think the free roll winner (433.5 points) played a real money contest? I hope he did!!!!!!!!

My Express Line up did what I always hope to to do, at least hit a minimum win.

My Sunday NBA Express result:

Sunday Express win

There are 7 games scheduled tonight in the NBA, including ORL at GSW in which the Warriors should be looking to make every one forget what the Lakers did to them on Sunday.

My Main Slate Monday, March 7th Line Ups will be on the $1-$100K Swat, the $1-$25K Dribbler and the $1-$500 Mini Dribbler.

Conley PG MEM is out tonight, replace with K Irving CLE PG

Monday March 7th Main Slate Line Ups

Updated Main Slate Line Up with D Green GSW now a GTD

Updated Main Slate Line Up

Beware, V Oladipo ORL SG is a GTD and is a late starting game, It sounds like he will play.

Switch out Matt Barnes MEM SF with H Barnes GSW SF, Matt Barnes is a scratch.

March 7th Free Roll Entry

I skipped the Express slate tonight and went with a Late Night Line up.

$1-$10K Late Night Swat Line Up

Updated Late Night Line Up, D Green GSW may not play(Illness)

Updated Late Night Line Up

Monday March 7th Late Night Line Up

I may be using too many Golden State players (3) on my Late Night Line Up, I hope it’s not a absolute blow out and everyone sits in the 4th Quarter.

The Nightly $250 Free Roll starts at 7PM on Fan Duel

 

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.

Friday Fan Duel Express Tournament Line Up Advice

My Thursday Line Ups were close, but just one pay out…….

Thursday Main Slate Results

I was only 6 points off a small pay out on both the $250K and $100K Tourneys…….

The night started slow scoring for my line up and I started creeping up the rankings when the late games started. If only OKC and GSW would have gone into OT or if I had started K Durant 54.5 pts. instead of B Westbrook 39.7 pts. (their salaries were about the same) I would have ranked a little higher.

Thursday Late Night Scores

The late night contests also were slow starting for me, but at about 11:30PM I finally hit a payout and once again an OT game by OKC/GSW would have been to my benefit. Most late games that go into OT usually screw me, but last night it would have been nice, I was heavy into the last game with players.

The $2 – NBA TNT $250K had 3 players tie for 1st with 350.1 points and they each won $13K.

The $1 – NBA Swat $100K winner had 351.4 points for a $10K win

The $1 – NBA Swat $10K  winner had 312.9 points for a $750 win.

There are 10 games on the Fan Duel NBA Slate tonight and player salaries are not as top heavy as last night on all the slates.

I got my monthly FDP Bronze free roll invite last night, that’s a $2000 Rewards Free Roll for low limit players like me.

Bronze FDP Free Roll

Here’s the Line Up I’m using on that Free Roll and the daily $250 Fan Duel Free Roll:

Friday Free Roll line up

Here is my suggested Express Line Up for Friday, March 4th:

Here are the Line Ups I’m using on the Late Slate:

Here is my After Hours Line Up:

Friday After Hours Line Up

Watch the status of Clarkson on the Lakers, if he plays you might want to switch out G Harris DEN with him, you’ll have enough salary to do it.

Good Luck On Fan Duel tonight……
