FANDUEL : WEEK 12

Recommended Posts

Yep, Edwards seems like a safe play now and Ekeler has some questions.  Not worth the risk.  But, I am leaving a couple GPP with Ekeler that also has SD defense and at least one other 4pm player.  I can make adjustments prior to kickoff if I feel like it.

Yeah, Edwards instead of Ekelor for me at least in 1.

...and, of course, Barkley gets the first NYG touchdown.

It's bad a bad feeling as I see the chalk hitting a bit in the 1st Q as Barkley/Chubb/Brate all scoring, and the can't miss expensive D gets scored on quickly.

Well, Mullens sucked, Beckham and Brown were underwhelming, but my line up scored 152.14 thanks to McCaffrey and Chubb which was good for 7th-15th place in the contests I entered.  Pay lines ranged from 132.64 - 136.32 in the twelve  $2 - 50/50 contests I entered.  $24 in...$43.20 out!

Could have been better, but I'll take a positive week, 53 in and 79 out.  Also currently 20th out of 595 in a $2 single entry Thurs-Mon good for $10 right now.  Let's go Diggs!

Didn't hit a qualifier...I was at 141, 135, 119...ticket line was 170.  The tickets that get you to a qualifier to get you to a larger tourney are pretty much a scam.  My best lineup today would have been 1.5pts short.  

Was on all the right people for the most part....this thread pretty much was too.  Cash+/Cash hit for 162 and 142.  Had a few gpp just under 170.  Just didn't have the right combo.  My buddy put in $92 over 3 lineups and won $1300, he strictly uses the optimizer here.  The only player I noticed he was playing that I wasn't was Westbrook.  He also stuck with Ekeler in his lineups that went over 190.  While I gave away 10 points shifting some lineups to Edwards.

A little more about that mega qualifier.  It didn't even fill up, was 1200 people short, 7885/9000.  If you wanted to enter this week, it was $5.  I'm sure there were thousands of tickets given away at $1 or less leading up to it, so I guess FD makes up for (some of?) the loss with all the pre-qualifiers, but I'm not doing the math.  From my perspective, I'm not sure it was even worth the $3 I invested since it played like a long shot GPP.  If I won, I'd be pretty happy though.  But if I knew my odds would be so long just to cash in the megaQ, I'm not sure I do it.  That's what I mean by scam, you don't know what you're getting into.  Or maybe I'm just too inexperienced playing for tickets and I don't know what to look for.

That NBA contest on 12/20 that some of us are sitting around with tickets waiting for didn't have a mega qualifier to win.  So while those odds will also likely be long, it's at least where the money will be won.  It just sucks you don't know how big it will be.

Played on DK but no thread so posting here. Barkley/Chubb carried my cash lineup, cashed in a $3 SE gpp with Luck, McCaffrey and Balt D and cashed 1/4 .25 gpps for $1.20 for a total of $9 in and $16.20 out.

I had 15 enteries and had 4 just miss by a couple of points. Very frustrating

I thought I would be ok with a 145pt lu, but it looks like getting 2x needed into the 180s? That is extremely high if o saw that right.

Best FD cash lineup in awhile - 162.54.  Ended up with Barkley and McCaffrey.   10 in, 23.50 out.  Also hit a couple gpps, best was 183 score for $15 in a $1gpp.   Overall up about $25, which helps a little with the last couple weeks.

For my $5 2x I cashed with 160.24 and 158 was the cutline.

Won a little money. Hard to complain about that. I do regret removing Ju Ju from my Sunday Million lineup. That would have netted more cash had I left him in.

Huh.  The $5 I was in had a 158 cutline, but that was for $6.67.  To truly 2x, I see a score of 198.42 needed.  That is nutso.  

I was almost out of money on DK, but hit a $1 showdown for about $30 tonight, so I am back!

10 more clutch tix. Up to 110

Nice!...I had no time last night and only did a $1 mini squib at the last second.  Good for 41st place.  Watson, Jonuu, Demaryus, Mariotta, and Fairbairn.

A relatively small Thurs-Mon gpp had a cash line at 138, most of my main slate gpp were in the 145 range.  I haven't played Thurs-Mon this year more than a couple times, but I'll have to start doing the placeholder (and usually fade Thurs) again.

I did likewise; cash LU almost outdid every GPP. L. Jackson, Chubb, Breida, Hilton, Smith-Schuster, Sanders, Ertz, Ekeler & NE: 177.42. Tried something different on that too, seeing others do it every week, and that is entering the same LU multiple times. Really liked the LU so I decided to do it for once. It worked out.

For the week, $70 in - $130 out. Best week I've had in a while.
