Was there anything about this being a mistake?  I always thought the floor cost for kickers was 4500 and D 4000.

Have to play this in a cash plus LU I'm thinking.  Playing to not go 0fer against Steelers backups could lead to 3x.

They were 3.5k vs Det several weeks ago.  I am still thinking about it for cash, but don't think they have a 10pt+ game in them for a gpp.

Agreed...a couple sacks and hope for an INT is probably best case scenario

FWIW, another potential GPP dart-throw: Ryan Switzer - WR, DAL Cole Beasley will be out, Switzer is taking his place in the slot. Against a Philly secondary that has had it's starters getting lit up. Minimum price of $4500.

Anyone like Marshawn playing for the incentive $$?  Bea$tmode?

Not for me...He may be OK, but he seems pretty TD dependent.  Doesn't get receiving yards..has hit 100 only once (although a couple of his better yardage games have been in recent weeks.

I know a lot of these guys are cheap, but I am trying to step back and think about this big picture and maybe pump the breaks a little on these 4.5K guys just because they are 4.5K.  I think a big problem with all the value this week is that there is not that much to spend up on this week with so many studs sitting.  Maybe a couple of these guys will burn me, but I just can't bring myself to click on names like Reynolds, M.Brown, Mahomes, etc.. when it's really easy to get a lot of medium priced guys that are maybe underperforming but are actual nfl starters like AJ Green, Gordon, Baldwin, etc..

Again, I am fully prepared for my post to bite me as usual and a  Mannion - J.Reynolds stack take all the gpps this week.

Looks like White is probably out along with Gilly and Rex and there is sub-zero windchills.  Looks like it could be another heavy lifting game for D.Lewis.

Just heard on the radio that NE has hung wall thermometers on the walls outside the Jets locker room to be sure they see the temps... :lmao:

Mike Evans vs. TY Hilton?  Waffling between these 2 for my last WR spot...

It's Hilton for me - Hilton "always" lights up the Texans and Evans is going to shadowed by M. Lattimore most likely.

For those looking for gpp darts...Theilen and Kearse are both near contract incentives...

Not really.  They don't seem to generate much of a pass rush, which is what I like to see for Ds.

I took them as a flyer on one of my GPP entries.

Currently up on the week, but since they are the ones who are scoring, are popular, and I have none, the Chargers are killing me.  I had a $5 gpp winning $250 about 25mins ago that is at $50, and my cash LU is getting closer and closer to the cut line too.  If a couple players don't step up, I could go from being up about $300 to being up about $5 on the week.  :scared:

Nope, even worse.  

My New Year's resolution should be to stop looking at my phone so much I avoid seeing these things.  Went from +300 to -$12 on the day as everybody screamed past my LUs in the 4th quarter.  :wall:

I keep slipping as well, but still on the + side for the moment.

Somehow my league LU caught up and won by .06pts.  If stuff holds, I will at least be up on the week - +$3!!

$20 in... $28.80 out.  PROFIT!

This is likely my last week.  I don't usually play the smaller slate type stuff, so playoffs are not on my agenda.  I will be up a whopping $52.30 on the season.   :P

Playoffs and small slates are the easiest.

$6 in....$8.75 out.  PROFIT!

It sounds even better when I put it this way: 16 $0.25 GPP lineups, 12 cashed (75%).

I'm glad the offseason is here so I can finish my model.  Big money in 2018, lolz.

One of my best weeks of the year. Scored 137.4 which was good enough for 2 50/50 wins and a 3 man league. Also did a $1 of .25 gpps that did nothing. $7 in $12.60 out.

I still don't have consistent success with small slates.  Will still try a little bit of playoff stuff, but won't play a ton of $. 

Are you mostly talking about the overlay you seek for your satellites making it easier for the small slates? 

Part of my "success" today was getting $6 on a $1 4pm gpp though. Sadly, it was my highest scoring lu of the day. 

The other part i noticed is the gpps are pretty small usually- i assume they are bigger in the playoffs?

Obviously I should have been more specific than to just make an offhand comment like that.

In the past I've done well with cash in small slates for the playoffs.  The studs are much easier to pick out of the group.  Usually you'll get a game or two where the o/u line is significantly higher than the other games.

You'll see bigger gpps for the playoffs.  I play them like cash.  I think you get so many people trying to be different that just picking good lineups can result in a return although you are passing on a chance at the big win.  

The biggest hiccup is when the kickers are all similarly priced, then it becomes kicker wars which isn't fun.

I just looked and there is a 1400 range for Ds and 700 for Ks.   Of course Gurley is 10k, and I assume you just need to jam him in.

That was good to see on the Ks and Ds.

I think a case can be made for Freeman if he's not injured.  One thing is for sure, I'm jamming my money into RBs.  Wrs have been a crapshoot the last month or so once Brown went down.

I think the hardest for me for that slate will probably be the Qbs.  It's a who's who of underperformers on the season for the most part.  

My first glance placeholder: Goff - Gurley/Fournette - Sanu/Cole/Ginn - Walker - Butker - KC.  

I guess I could MAYBE see fading Gurley and going with a combo like Hunt/Fournette if it could get you to a WR or TE that could break the slate and make up points you might lose at RB, but that is kinda scary.
