  1. Was going to say this. Don't think it's really fair to compare 33 year old Ochocinco and 31 year old Brandon Lloyd free agent signings to trading for a high production high pedigree young WR.
  2. I haven't played mlb dfs but have been a long time season-long fantasy baseball player. I can see the thing about avoiding small or chalk slates. To me, Monday/Thursday seemed like natural no play days. I think I need to stop worrying about what days I should play and just start making lineups. Approach seems to be nail down your SP and stack some high implied runs bats. What I really want is nfl dfs but maybe this will help hold me over
  3. Checked back in on FBG to do some dynasty draft prep and good to see some familiar faces from the football fanduel threads posting here. I haven't dipped my toes yet into MLB Fanduel but plan to start soon. My question for you guys is: Do you play every night? How do you decide the days/slates you want to play? I loved having the week to prep for football, doing an initial early pass and then refining throughout the week. In baseball, the amount of lineups you have to churn out to be playing daily doesn't seem to permit that level of analysis. How do you approach MLB vs NFL?
  4. 1). The IVC is essential. Gives more control and better UI/UX for self building lineups than some other generators (e.g. Rotogrinders). Other columns that were must reads for me every week were Dodds' Cracking Fanduel and Wisdom of the Staff. 2a). Defense x Position and Targets/Touches (raw, %, trends). Feel like you have access to this information on the site but it wasn't accessible easily from DFS page. This information was always a part of my DFS prep. 2b) Was going to suggest more of a Vegas totals' feature but reading this thread I found out about the Vegas Value Chart. I always used Rotogrinders Odds and Lines for team totals and O/Us because that is, IMO, the MOST important information every week. Lee adding some suggestions on to the raw totals makes the feature even sweeter. My recommendation for this feature is to move it higher up the page
  5. Best week of the year for me, by far. Both my main slate lineups hit Luck DJ Howard Hilton Edelman Crabtree Brate Augayo Pats - 140.72 Brees McCoy Kelley Nelson Cooks Crabtree Brate Gost Patriots - 140.66 Thu - Mon is sitting at 102.36 with Antonio Brown to go today. Merry Christmas everybody
  6. Damn didn't know there was a chance of that at all. Doesn't affect my Fanduels at all but could've snuck in a Jacquizz Rogers start on a RB needy dyntasy team this week.
  7. Love it when a plan comes together
  8. Nope, was more about wanting to get Jordy in than a statement on Olsen
  9. Shifting off Olsen to 100% Brate. Allows me to upgrade Edelman to Jordy in the LU on the left. Swapping M. Thomas for Edelman on the right to keep my exposure.
  10. What are peoples thoughts on multi-entrying the same lineup in the BIG multiplier contests? I see people do it all the time but I'm not sure if I've read an analysis on whether or not it's considered good practice. I would like a little more 3x exposure, preferably at the $2 level, but the offering of $2 3x's is so small.
  11. Drew Brees Andrew Luck LeSean McCoy Jordan Howard Rob Kelley David Johnson Brandin Cooks T.Y. Hilton Julian Edelman Michael Thomas Michael Crabtree Michael Crabtree Greg Olsen Cameron Brate Stephen Gostkowski Roberto Aguayo New England Patriots New England Patriots Here's what I'm looking at for the main slate.
  12. Four games off the main slate is really messing with my head when it comes to putting together my Thu-Lu lineup. I am usually a 1 lineup on thu-mon guy, and I couldnt decide if I wanted ODB or AB as my "spend up" receiver. It pushed me to make a no-stud RB LU that can fit them both: Drew Brees Jordan Howard LeGarrette Blount Antonio Brown Odell Beckham Jr Tyler Lockett Cameron Brate Robert Aguayo New England Patriots
  13. How are you guys approaching the slates this week? A lot of different options with the Saturday/Sunday games. Might mess around some with late 4PM with the Bucs/Saints Saturday at 425 PM, and AB from Ravens/Steelers Sunday. More to think about with the Thu-Mon slate vs Main than a normal week.
  14. Has been a roller coaster year for Cooks' dynasty value, but back to back seasons of 70+/1000+/8+ at age 23 is nothing to sneeze at. With TB at home and on the road against ATL, Cooks' end of year numbers could look even nicer. I know as an owner I wasn't happy about the downtick in targets lost to Michael Thomas but Cooks' production and age still have me very high on him.
  15. How do the 20 man money lines compare to 100 man? Have been using the 100 man as my "non-GPP-contest-above-5x". I suppose the 20 man cash lines could be highly variable.
