Re: MLB 2015 DFS Thread

IIRC, FanDuel only allows someone to scoop up ten of your H2Hs at any buy-in level. So if you put up 20 games at $25, one opponent could only join 10.

How long has this been a rule? I remember starting 2-3 years ago, maybe they changed the rules as mote people complained about getting scooped?

Have a Brewers stack but didn't play Lind because I wanted to fit Lynn and Hamels, FML.

It was implemented around the time Condia got started. They also have a total daily entry limit, but it varies from sport to sport.

I'd imagine it's easier to spot fish at the niche sports like cbb cfb and prolly hockey and maybe MLB. I can tell you for a fact that on DK for cbb I can spot a fish within 2 seconds as there's like only 6-7 regs

I think it is easier to bumhunt on FD because you can click on their name name and see how many games they have played for each sport. I'm not sure if there is a feature like that on DK.

****ing parra ownership really telling today.

In my $10 double ups im cashing them all but not even close in my $5. And I suspect that's the 26% parra in my $5 vs 15% in $10.

F fish picking parra today.

Relax dude. Calling people fish for playing Parra is relatively absurd and uncalled for. He was batting leadoff for a team that has been on fire recently, seems like more then enough reason to play him. There are many ways to construct a lineup for MLB DFS, I think berating players for playing someone like Parra is unnecessary.

THIS

Parra is killing the ball. I missed Kole today (guess I'm a fish, but when I play him I always get nothing relevant). over the last week playing Parra is like guarantee to get mulitple points for a price that break your salary cap. It's not a fish move to play him it's smart.

Lol no parra was a fish play

BUT GUYZ HES ON FIRE BREWERS ON FIRE.

That's exactly why there are fish. Reasoning like that.

Fish aren't picking 8 hitting spot starters. They are picking "hot players on hot teams"

I used parra Friday and Saturday too. But it's interesting you didn't use him today. BECAUSE THERE WERE CLEAR BETTER PLAYS TODAY

I played Parra again today. Please share your pro picks for tomorrow so I can be less of a fish.

Re: MLB 2015 DFS Thread

In his last 10 games Parra hasn't had a single negative game. He's also had 6 games over 5FP on FD. Call him a fish play if you want, but when a guy is scoring like that each and every single night w/ a recent basement of .25 points and a ceiling of 7 plus points and he's been under 3.1k while playing for a team killing the ball. Yea I'll take that fish play all day long!

I know I am not as good as most of you, and we have recently discussed trying to remove L14 day stats from the process of selecting hitters. Long story short over the last couple weeks if you said Parra was a fish play and faded him each and every night you weren't too happy. If you played him you were probably very happy. I played him on Thurs/Fri/Sun (no action on 4th of July). I don't understand the hate, but before this year I had never heard the name Parra and maybe that's where all the hate is coming from? I'd love to get some of the more volume based players to explain why he's crap @ under 3k on FD

I was looking at his splits from this season and 3 year average, and one thing i noticed is his AB's are going up every month and as they are going up so is his success. At his age he may just be entering his prime and those who use the 3 year averages might be losing out as he might just be a better player at 28 then he was a 25. Bottom line he gets Wisler from ATL tomorrow @ 3.1 and that seems like a fair price point considering he is going against a pitcher that doesn't scare me.

It's already been stated but playing parra is not a fish move. Price plus production plus spot in the lineup pretty much makes him a must play based on value, and it's been that way almost this entire season, at minimum the last month plus he has been in every one of my lineups when not facing a bad matchup or bumped down in the order.

If you didn't play him today, there might be a Leake in your game.

Nothing complicated about Parra.He bats in front of 4 legit power guys and he feeds off bad rh pitching.He's faced a lot of that lately.

Re: MLB 2015 DFS Thread

lol you guys are such fish. Glad you all feel empowered when fish all post after each other making yourself feel better. Today there were absolute great values and if you missed them and played parra you are a fish.

Last few days parra at close to
Minimum it was fine, but today he's priced almost as much as some elite guys. Sorry you have leak.

Anyway ended up cashing everything without parra thanks to Calhoun and angels so it's all good

Re: MLB 2015 DFS Thread

People calling parra a great play or a fish play are both wrong imo. He was an ok play, nothing more.

(A better play on DK than FD tho imo)
