Re: 2017 NFL DFS

I have a Monday-Thursday Fanduel lineup where I had Smith/Hunt/Kelce and am in pretty good shape going into Thursdays Patriots-Bucs game.

Basically I need to choose 2 receivers for the Thursday night game, where basically one can be from the top group (Evans, Cooks, Hogan, Jackson, Amendola) and one from the rest, with the caveat I can start 2 of Hogan, Amendola, Jackson if I want.

2 options I thought of were Hogan/Amendola and Cooks/Humphries.

Anyone have any thoughts on which receivers I should go with or a different combo?

Re: 2017 NFL DFS

anyone playing less on DK since they increased their rake on some GPPs? (the Chrome extension mentioned here is pretty nice).

Also don't like that they removed the SNF game from the main slate.

Re: 2017 NFL DFS

I would guess if you are a completely amateur player (which I admit I am) it might actually be a little better to have the rake high enough to drive off the pros. If you are a -EV player anyways raising the rake might actually be beneficial to you because of this.

This question is very tough to answer without a lot more information.

How many are in the tournament? What is the payout? Do you have multiple line ups with this start?

Is it a GPP or double up/cash? Are you trying to hit a decent pay or gamble it up in a way that gets your lineup unique and gives you a small chance to win a lot?

I don't play on fan duel but don't they have a flex spot? Why does it need to be 2 WRs? Do you already have Gronk in your flex? How many others have the same start as you do?

i.e. the question as posed is tough to answer.

If you like this rake check out the 3 digit (50% rake). NO PROS!

I can't really answer most of those questions because I am an admitted DFS Donk. Fan duel has no flex. I have a few lineups but this is the most promising one going forward. I just wanted to see if anyone had an informed opinion what WRs might be in a good or bad spot due to matchup. This is a tourney.

I guess your comment I might want to go unique and try to hit the jackpot makes sense. I guess that would be an argument for putting in Humphries.

Re: 2017 NFL DFS

I like Amendola - and more w/o Gronk - paired with a TB player.I guess you're saying you can't go Evans/Amendola, I think I'd go Jackson/Amendola.

I took amendola and hogan. And I have Martin. I am crushing. The lineup in the lead at halftime is pretty much the same as mine except they have KC D and I have NE and they have Prior and I have Hill. So there is a world where the last play of the KC game could cost me the tourney.

Thanks. Made a little $$ but didn't pan out. The winning lineup had 1 Wr, the kicker and D different than me and that was the difference.

I had Tampa +5 too.

Could have been better or worse I guess.

Re: 2017 NFL DFS

draftkings has bare minimum rewards, high rake, and seems much tougher imo

I hate the DK 100 yard bonuses and dislike PPR compared to half PPR. But FD has a kicker ...

I think the tighter pricing on DK might drive away some casuals. I find it quite difficult to make a DK lineup compared to FD, so I imagine it must be very tough for some of the casual players.

Re: 2017 NFL DFS

I did a $33 entry GPP on FD for the Th - Mon slate, and I would say about 50% of entries had at least 3 players from last night's game and only about 40/280 had no players at all. I entered one "no Thurs" entry, would have done more if I knew these numbers.

DFS is basically dead and the big sites are all making money grabs now instead of focusing on long term

Given the main game slate and the Monday night game I think it is pretty reasonable that this week most full slate players would have multiple players from this game.

Re: 2017 NFL DFS

last nights game was the highest over/under of the week so it makes sense people played a lot from it

the thursday game is always over-represented just because people want a little action early. most of the time it stinks so fading is generally a good play

Re: 2017 NFL DFS

yes - I always fade TNF players, this week it was a must.

of course if the game had gone by the vegas line, I'd be looking for some long shot plays now.

Removing games from the main slate, having pickem with 3 people in a tier, 15-16% rake. **** is completely out of hand
