Daily Fantasy NBA Basketball Picks for FanDuel and DraftKings - 3/30/16

There’s a solid nine-game slate in the Association on tap for Wednesday. Looking at offshore information, three games have no line (not a huge number this late in the season), but of those listed, none have high totals. It also looks to be a good night for road teams (with the majority likely to be favored). If I wasn’t looking, I’d be very wary of blowout risk. The Pels, Suns, and Lakers all on the slate. Who know who Memphis will roll out. Then there’s the always-rotating Spurs cast, and the underwhelming Knicks and Kings. I guess the theme of the night is risk. As always, check the Updates article and be close to a device near lineup lock. Below are the closest to “sure things” the night before…

***Please note that the Pelicans are virtually out of bodies. They may have eight guys suit up, and they’ll all have to play. Minutes being minutes, they should all be good value options. I’ll point out the Pels at each position, without a full write-up.***


Brandon KnightBrandon Knight - FD 7200 DK 7300
Opponent - MIL
FD Proj. Pts - 36.52 DK Proj. Pts - 38.57
Knight is about as solid as it gets on Wednesday. He’s one of the few Suns with more than two years’ experience who also belongs on an NBA roster. He has been getting plenty of minutes, and there’s a reasonable floor time expectation built into these projections. The Bucks’ defense vs. position (DvP) on PGs actually is very good (4th), but Knight will have the ball a ton regardless of how tough he finds the sledding. He has displayed a solid floor of 4 times salary/1000 (4x) and a lot of upside. He isn’t the most expensive play, but his salary is relatively high on a night with a ton of bargains.

Chris PaulChris Paul - FD 9400 DK 9600
Opponent - MIN
FD Proj. Pts - 47.12 DK Proj. Pts - 48.98
Speaking of high salaries…CP3 has the best point-per-dollar (PP$) projection at the top end of the salary range on FanDuel (FD) and DraftKings (DK). The Clips are playing at Minnesota, keeping the line reasonable, and mitigating blowout risk. His recent performances (other than struggling against the Dubs – hardly a sin) show a solid floor, which is crucial for big-ticket players. On the upside, DFSR system sees potential north of 6x, which is also pretty strong at this price point. With all of the bargains (read: Pelicans actually able to take the court), you should be looking for some spending opportunities. I like Paul a lot as a safe place to park some dollars, all formats, all sites.

Tim FrazierTim Frazier - FD 4000 DK 3700
Opponent - SAS
FD Proj. Pts - 24.75 DK Proj. Pts - 25.9
Toney DouglasToney Douglas - FD 5700 DK 4900
Opponent - SAS
FD Proj. Pts - 31.93 DK Proj. Pts - 33.48
Your Pelican options at the point. Douglas will probably see more court time and is a better-known commodity, but there’s a big price disparity. If you want a near-punt, Frazier may be your guy.

DFSR 705x90



Bradley BealBradley Beal - FD 5700 DK 5400
Opponent - SAC
FD Proj. Pts - 23.91 DK Proj. Pts - 25.78
I think these projections are quite a bit low. Assuming Beal sees his minutes jump back in the 30’s, you’re probably looking at one of the better values on the board. He has thrown out a couple of lousy performances lately, but also threw out an 8x in between. With the Kings on the docket, we’re looking for a Good Bradley appearance. There are some other SGs that look attractive at first glance, but they all have serious questions. This is the chalk play at SG on Wednesday.

Rodney HoodRodney Hood - FD 5200 DK 5200
Opponent - GSW
FD Proj. Pts - 25.5 DK Proj. Pts - 27.58
If he weren’t playing the Warriors, I’d say Rodney Hood was the safest play at this position. He has shown a very solid floor in recent games, and put up an 8x last time out in essentially one half. I doubt he goes eight-for-eleven from deep in the first half again, but if he sees his full complement of minutes, he should easily produce enough to justify his price. While the Dubs are always a tricky opponent, their DvP on SGs is well below average. On a very difficult night at the position, rolling with Hood looks like a solid option.

Wesley MatthewsWesley Matthews - FD 4900 DK 4900
Opponent - NYK
FD Proj. Pts - 23.2 DK Proj. Pts - 26.47
After receiving ridicule for this pick last week, I’m feeling a little less defensive. With Parsons out, his minutes have gone up as expected, and with them his production. Even coming off two bad shooting nights (one due to inaccuracy, the other a lack of attempts), he managed to maintain a very good floor. The Knicks are not a great matchup as their Pace is glacial and they defend the 2 very well. Nevertheless, the upside is there because the touches will be.

Believe it or not, no Pelican eligible for Shooting Guard on DK or FD is likely to play on Wednesday. Says a lot all by itself. If you really want a flier here, look at Jamal Crawford, especially on DK (but be aware he has a very, very low floor).

Baseball season is almost here. Check back soon for our MLB ebook on setting daily fantasy baseball lineups as well as our MLB DFS strategy articles coming in the next couple weeks.



Giannis AntetokounmpoGiannis Antetokounmpo - FD 9200 DK 9300
Opponent - PHX
FD Proj. Pts - 43.94 DK Proj. Pts - 45.05
He’s pricey, but he’s good. The Greek Freak stank up the joint last time out, but his price slipped a little as a result. I always like to buy lower than higher, and this is a good spot to nab some triple-double potential. The Suns interior D is strong, but not so much on the wings. Giannis will be handling the ball a lot per his coach, so the matchup should be just fine. If the Bucks were better, I’d be more concerned about Suns-related blowout risk. Fortunately, they’re not very good, so I’m comfortable spending here. I especially like the upside for tourneys.

Carmelo AnthonyCarmelo Anthony - FD 8600 DK 8500
Opponent - DAL
FD Proj. Pts - 40.39 DK Proj. Pts - 42.39
If there weren’t bargain opportunities to be had here, I might suggest stacking the SF position with ‘Melo and Giannis. As it stands, I think you have to nab a Pel, meaning you also need to pick between these two (especially on FD). Anthony is a little cheaper and a good deal more consistent. The true blow-the-top-off upside isn’t here though. He plays for the creep-along Knicks and the Mavericks only play at a slightly higher Pace. If you are looking at cash games, I think you lean this way.

Jordan HamiltonJordan Hamilton - FD 3600 DK 3300
Opponent - SAS
FD Proj. Pts - 20.84 DK Proj. Pts - 21.68
Luke BabbittLuke Babbitt - FD 4700 DK 3800
Opponent - SAS
FD Proj. Pts - 23.86 DK Proj. Pts - 26.15
Speaking of the New Orleans bargains … Hamilton is the punt/flier, Babbitt closer to a sure thing (I am having trouble believing I just wrote that about Luke Babbitt – but he’s a go-to choice on DK). Much like PG, determine your risk tolerance and choose accordingly. **Note that Donte Cunningham is also a SF on DK. Fortunately, DK is more forgiving positionally.**



Kristaps PorzingisKristaps Porzingis - FD 6900 DK 6500
Opponent - DAL
FD Proj. Pts - 35.18 DK Proj. Pts - 36.33
The Zinger is back. He has been on a tear for several games, as displayed by his skyrocketing price (up 20% on DK in a week). There’s still value here if he keeps up his production, as he’s the top non-Pel play at this position on a PP$ basis. The post-Dirk Stretch 4 (even if Dirk isn't actually in the ground yet), I don’t see KP being overly distracted by a Nowitzki closeout (a picture supported by the Mavs’ terrible DvP on the position). Plus, he can post up when he wants. Love this guy when he brings it, and he has been bringing it. A nice mid-priced option, there’s elite upside without the elite price tag. On FD, he’s pretty much a must-play due to positional scarcity.

Luol DengLuol Deng - FD 6000 DK 5800
Opponent - LAL
FD Proj. Pts - 29.58 DK Proj. Pts - 31.02
Luol Deng is another mid-tier price option at PF (on FD - note that he’s listed at SF on DK). While his fantasy output has been a bit unpredictable lately (in real life, he’s rock-solid), the DFSR system sees him with the highest floor of Wednesday’s better PF options. There’s plenty of upside to go along with it. The Lakers don’t defend any position particularly well, and PF is no exception. If this were in Miami, I’d be scared off by blowout risk. In the Staples Center, I think it’s tolerable.

Dante CunninghamDante Cunningham - FD 3700 DK 3400
Opponent - SAS
FD Proj. Pts - 20.18 DK Proj. Pts - 20.43
The Pelican of the night on FD. Yet another SF option on DK (where his price dropped, despite the fact that he’s topped 36 minutes the last three games).

On FD, a good second PF option is Paul Millsap. He’s got a high floor and consistency to counter-balance the tough Raptors matchup.



DeMarcus CousinsDeMarcus Cousins - FD 10600 DK 10200
Opponent - WAS
FD Proj. Pts - 50.56 DK Proj. Pts - 51.17
On a day with so many punt plays and cheaper options in general it's going to make sense getting Boogie in just about every lineup. This is of course assuming he's given a clean bill of health before the game. That's always a tricky thing with the Kings because they are about the worst in the league in disseminating information. And this is a late start game. They called his last game rest so I'm assuming he plays and if he does you can run him without fear in cash games.

Al HorfordAl Horford - FD 7100 DK 6400
Opponent - TOR
FD Proj. Pts - 35.1 DK Proj. Pts - 35.7
Like Millsap, Al Horford plays the Raptors on Wednesday. While the Raptors are an excellent team, they are not terribly effective defending Centers (bottom-third DvP). Horford has been consistent of late (the only blemish on his game log is a lone outing against the tough-as-nails Wizards interior D), and the DFSR system likes him in the 4x-6x range on FD. If you can live with that, roll with Horford there. On DK, he has the highest PP$ projection at Center (of anyone likely to suit up). His discount makes him very, very hard to pass up. So don’t, unless you feel the need to guess which Pels big man is going to have a huge night.

Robin LopezRobin Lopez - FD 5800 DK 5300
Opponent - DAL
FD Proj. Pts - 28.77 DK Proj. Pts - 29.21

A viable Center alternative on Wednesday, RoLo is worthy of consideration, especially given his price on DK. He can be very inconsistent, so I’d think of him as a Tourney play. I expect almost everyone to be on Horford or a Pel, reinforcing his status as a pivot/contrarian option. You could do much worse for lineup diversification.

Alexis AjincaAlexis Ajinca - FD 3900 DK 3500
Opponent - SAS
FD Proj. Pts - 21.15 DK Proj. Pts - 21.5

Omer AsikOmer Asik - FD 3600 DK 3800
Opponent - SAS
FD Proj. Pts - 17.92 DK Proj. Pts - 18.37

If you’re going to run a Pelican at Center, you pretty much have to go Ajinca on DK. Asik is a reasonable alternative on FD with their inverted prices. With so many Pel options at other positions (ironic, given that the variety of DFS options exist precisely because there are so few real-world options), you don’t need one at Center, but it’s certainly viable.

So yeah, basketball season! And we've got some goodies you can take with you. At the end of the post, we have our NBA eBook that you really ought to check out before setting even a single daily fantasy NBA lineup. It's free, below.

  1. I wish I was tall enough to punch Brook Lopez in his nonproductive, dumb face. Ruined all my teams. Good defense Nets. Moving on. Tomorrow is a new day

    • Important to remember this late in the season to run the optimizer and then start hitting x next to the guys you don’t love. No chance I was playing JR smith, Shump or Brooke Lopez so it gave me some pretty good results after I got rid of those guys and a few others.

      • I can understand two out of the three, but why Brook Lopez? He was top three center from every expert I talk to, read or watched.

        • Brooke Lopez hit a real slump last night but Shump did pretty well for the price and also Lebron was also out last night so that really helped with his scoring.

    • @Joseph Engel he only played 15 mins not his fault dude lol

    • Brook lopez is a bum, killed my cash game This dude is a waste..

  2. Would have an awesome night if not for Lopez… Every night it’s one guy that gets me. Need to take Thomas’ advice above.

    • While I don’t suggest X-ing out TOO many guys, I think it’s very reasonable to go through and cross guys off if it’s keeping you within 1-1.5 points of the top line-up’s projected total – the human element will be helpful in finding lineups that “feel good” and, for practical purposes, are basically as good as one another.

  3. We need another great night you guys are killing it , mega slam tonight !!

    • Been a super solid run. We picked up a bunch of tickets to Slam tonight so looking to make a splash there for sure

  4. How much value can NO have going against the spurs?

    • In a normal situation, almost zero. But this isn’t normal. The NO guys are going to play major minutes because they don’t have anyone else.

  5. Huge!!!!! Thanks team DFSR. Best $30 I have spent! Used the optimizer to offset my own picks and turned $15 into $1750 on DraftKings tonight. Five $3 entry fees turned into $350 each… Keep up the great work guys!!!!!!

    • WHOA, Thomas! That’s a monster night! 100x+ is no joke of a night 🙂

  6. There’s something about being a Lopez twin that make them quite possibly the most inconsistent players I’ve seen in a long time

  7. $$$BOOM$$$ Optimizer killed. Was sweatin. THX DFSR

    • Very strong night. If not for Lopez getting buzzed in minutes would have been a clean sweep for FD and DK.

  8. Yes took Thomas advice n killed it last night

  9. Will I be charged automatically after the 3 day trial is done?

    You guys keep winning money with this optimizer. Is it that legit or do you guys do other research on top? Been playing all year and haven’t hit anything big. I only play about five 1 dollar lineups a night. Is it worth it?

    • Brian, are you playing cash or tournaments? I use the optimizer differently depending on format.

    • Hey Brian – if you’re playing $150 a month ($5 a night) investing $29.95 is actually pretty significant. That said, if it brings you from being a losing or breakeven player into a profitable one, the expense is immaterial. Some users, like Thomas above, have also recouped a lifetime’s worth of subscription fees by hitting in a single night. His results are not guaranteed, but he’s not the only one, either.

  10. Look all the dudes pissedat Brook saying he is inconsistent is completely wrong. He played only 15 mins because of the blowout. He is one man not the team. Now the criticism about Robin is warrantied

    • Yeah. He didn’t start the second half because of the score. This is the first time that’s happened to him all season I think.

  11. I’m suprised JJ barea isn’t on this list at home against the nicks I think he makes a better option then Frazier or Douglas who will be facing a fully rested Spurs team just my opinion

    • I don’t mind him, but at only 26 projected minutes he doesn’t register as a safe play IMO especially considering he isn’t a punt play anymore.

    • Also, just because the Spurs sat certain people last time, doesn’t mean some of the same guys won’t sit again. ALWAYS check on the Spurs as close as possible to lineup lock (and this in turn affects players on the team they’re facing).

  12. Trying to find and get advice on the best way to put complete lineups together seems im always one or two players off been playing for a few months gotten better but extra info always helps thanks can email me at cityboidawilling920@gmail

  13. I find it best to use the optimizer for about 75 percent of what they say and use your gut for the other 25 percent, has worked for me, up 200 so far the last 2 weeks I’ve had it, hoping to hit big soon before draft kings finally makes the ban go thru in Illinois

    • Depends on format (Cash or Tourney).

      Also, I doubt DK is making the ban go through – they’re’ likely fighting it tooth and nail. The whole regulatory environment is volatile, but it will eventually settle down. I predict somewhere between UIGEA and pure self-regulation (the big boys dropped the ball on that big time).

  14. Hey guys, I’m kind of a newby to your site so just wondering, what does someone mean when they reference how good the optimizer did?

  15. Kyle you just commented on Illinois. As a resident I am very interested in knowing what is going on? Are we going to lose our right to play? Only info I have I can find is there is a hearing on April 4th. Can DFS win this battle? If not I would be incredibly disappointed. If anyone can please update me with whatever they know good or bad I would appreciate it.

    • Google the Grove Report. You’ll need to look around the site and read some back articles, but it’ll give you the legislative/regulatory environment if you really are interested in the details.

  16. Dang, Lopez cost me last night. My gut said Gasol, but was worried about his minutes on a back to back. Couldn’t take my eyes off Lopez on the predictor. Oh well, it happens.

    • For sure. Blame Tony Brown for randomly just benching him to start second. If he plays like 8 more minutes even in the blowout DK cashes

  17. Such a shame to see all these states getting ready to ban DFS. Don’t get it. Brings in potentially billions in tax revenue as it grows. at least this requires skill. How is the lottery legal in most states? They rig that and you have horrible odds. Not to mention it makes the poor poorer as they hope they get be the one person that catches a break. Screwed up world we are living in.

    • Wait on jumping off the bridge. States know they can get money out of this – licensing fees, plus possible tax-type revenue. It’s fluid.

      Agree with you on lotteries and social policies, BTW.

  18. Tyson Chandler DOUBTFUL tonight!

  19. I’d imagine once the dust settles DFS will be “legal” in just about every state. You’ll just have a few states say they are “protecting their residents” when in fact it’s about the right people not getting paid. In the grand scheme it’s a good thing imo because DFS will be classified which will allow for proper oversight. Oversight is key. Next time some yahoo from DraftKings or FanDuel think about using “insider math” to play games they won’t do it because once classified it would be deemed as insider trader basically. You’ll create a ton of transparency that ultimately is good for the game imo.

    • It may not be quite that simple, but I agree most states will eventually allow DFS. Regulatory oversight is needed.

      Look for states with established brick-and-mortar gambling legalized (e.g. NV, NJ) to be the ones who won’t (or will be last to) adopt DFS regulations. Vested interests.

  20. @ben shushan- can you explain how you use each format and enter differently? Just curious on your approach.

  21. Does the basic optimizer give you lineups? I am unclear on this. I need all the help I can get lately picking lineups. If it pays for itself I don’t have a problem subscribing.

    • The “basic” subscription doesn’t provide an Optimizer. That comes with Pro. You can _build_ lineups with the Basic tool.

      Honestly, I should probably say “subscribe, under all circumstances” but it depends on how much you’re playing. I play relatively low stakes, and am positive-EV thanks to DFSR. Haven’t made a deposit into a DFS account since I found ’em, and balance is growing slowly. But if you’re playing $1 a night, it might be hard to justify a subscription. Just my honest feedback (hope I don’t get fired 🙂 ). Alternatively, you don’t have to remain a subscriber forever – try the Free Trial, if you like it stay aboard for a month, and take it from there. HTH

      • Ben is 100% right, here. If you’re playing $1 a night, you have almost no chance to recoup your $29.95 a month sub.

  22. Yes, I can, but I’m a contributor and don’t speak for the company. I just play my own account, and happen to use the DFSR tools exclusively (because they’re backed by the best numbers around, IMHO). And no, I don’t get a kickback for saying that. 🙂

    I am on Twitter but seldom check in. You can email me at bshushan@earthlink.net.

  23. Thanks, Ben. I play low stakes, but would play much more if I could build a sizeable and profitable bankroll. It is just so difficult to guess at so many variables every day that I could use the assistance. I have seen a lot of free optimizers, but Have had very little luck in using those random lineups.

  24. Important to remember ( or at least this is my understanding) that the DFSR optimizer is for CASH games. So for me, I only do GPP, the optimizer is just another tool I use to get me closer to my perfect GPP lineup. I run the optimizer several times a day and then weed out guys I don’t like for the slate and then run it again.

    • The optimizer can absolutely be used for GPPs (by using the stacking feature, and by limiting based on teams), but the default setting is absolutely for cash games.

      • In the pro tool could you put a suggestion on what games to stack and or limit? For gpps or maybe a list of high ceiling guys

  25. Bummer…

    Kristaps Porzingis (sore right shoulder) is being listed as doubtful for Wednesday’s game against Dallas.

  26. I am a standard subscriber. I try getting the 3 day trial on Pro but it won’t let me. Says my email is already there. Is there a way to get the trial? Thanks.
    Also, while watching the H & R Block commercial, AD looked like he twisted an ankle getting out of his car 🙂

  27. Who gets the bump besides Melo if Zinger is out?

  28. Hello,

    Like the articles you guys put out everyday. However tried to join but $15/month with no optimizer and $30/month for a lineup optimizer is way too much when rotowire offers cheaper prices.

    • Hey Matthew – I am a big fan of Rotowire, and we’re actually doing a little advertising with them in the very near future. That said, you simply can not count on projections from sites who do not focus explicitly on DFS for the most part. I’d be happy to be proven wrong, but by and large they simply don’t stay on top of things NEARLY enough to keep up in the most competitive DFS environment ever.

  29. What is different about your optimizer verse that of Roto grinders.

    • Hey Matthew,

      Different numbers. The numbers are the heart of everything. We also have the best lineup optimization algorithm possible, developed by the tech geniuses at LIneup Lab.

  30. the optimizer is high on kobe? thoughts?

    • you simply CANNOT use Kobe on FD since this is a late game and Kobe could take any night off at any time – even in the final weeks of the season he will get some time off here and there IMO – Kobe is a DK Late Swap play if you play there but on FD he is a huge gamble

    • It likes him as a per minute guy in general. It’s mostly a price thing as the salary’s dipped over the short term.

  31. I’ve had roto they basically paid me to stay gave me another free month but since I’ve used this I have cashed big and I am new to this the pro tool vs roto gives way different lineups and in my opinion this pro tool is more accurate . Sure it doesn’t hit everynight but it’s been close. I’d pay the extra for this you’ll make it back

  32. With Porzingus likely out tonight I think you will need to take a look at Derrick Williams who seems to play well when he is getting the minutes – at 3,500 the minimum price on FanDuel,it seems like a top Value Per Dollar play tonight and will be my top punt wherever I need to get some cap relief.

    • He’s bumped already in our system on the assumption he sees increased minutes. Showing up in many lineups even at 25 minutes which could be low

      • Doug – I project 30-32 Minutes for Derrick tonight and I see him with anywhere from 25-30 ftps based on the assumption that this game stays competitive with Dallas currently sitting as a 6 point favorite – even 25 FTPs would net him around 7X

        • I agree in principle. Mostly waiting for Zinger news to be confirmed as out and D Will confirmed as starter. Then I’ll bump

  33. One of the best feature of DFSR, is that you can have absolutely no interest in DFS or sports and win contests using the service. Any Joe Blow can get a line up and win every night, these guys do all the work for you all day. I am like a lot of you guys and could prob chill and not spend 4-5 hours a day/night checking news/stats. DFSR does all the work for you so a subscriber can chill. Although, I never will!

    • regardless of whether you get assistance with your teams here or anywhere,the fact of the matter is this….If you DO NOT have access to the internet or some kind of instant notification of DFS related news that almost always breaks out at 6:30 to 6:55 do not attempt to play that evening as there is always a good chance your picks will be affected in some way just prior to the 7pm lock and if you play guys that are even questionable to play after 7pm and on you almost must use the DK Late swap feature to put that player in or you are taking high risk at FD,Especially with players over 7K against the cap.

  34. Thoughts on joe Johnson tonight? I really don’t want to take Babbit. Also what about Mack against GS tonight?

  35. Which is a better start with Porzingis out, Dirk Nowitzki or Derrick Favors?

  36. Noticed Jordan Farmar is not in the optimizer tool. Is there a reason for this or a mistake? I think he could be an interesting GPP play as the starting PG in memphis against a not-so-great defensive team in Denver….

    • Farmar is not listed on any gambling site. I complained to Fanduel yesterday to add him and as usual they had their head up their arse and nothing was done about it.

  37. I’m confused on how to build good tourney lineups. I do pretty good with 50/50, but can’t seem to get the right combination to take down a tourney. Any suggestions? I do look at the O/U and lines, but just keep striking out. Alot of you guys seem very knowledgeable about it. Like tonight I’m thinking HUGE upside will be pels players and of course the obvious Cousins and the Alphabet.

    • Defense vs Position for the past 10 days or so,Teams that now have something to play for and deciphering between teams that are playing for the playoffs and those just playing out the season and Points Per Dollar by looking at 5-6x or more are keys to winning GPPs – i have been 1st in 2 40-50k man tourneys in the past week at FD and these 3 major things to look at other than late reported injuries and changes are keys to success in DFS

      • Also, history against opponent also helps. I took wayne’s advice for Will Barton the other day against DAL and cashed a good score. He had had three decent scores the past three games against them.

        • the only thing is Ken in looking at past history vs other teams is what,if any injuries kept starters out during those games..that could influence the points totals a bit and skew the numbers

  38. Derozan is high on the optimizer. I was thinking of not using him. He has a pretty descent floor, but not alot of upside. is he a good cash game or can I sneak him into a GPP play tonight?

    • Derozan did great last night. Was not listed here on the free garbage we are given. Thank you. But if DFSR free picks do not pan out why are we to believe in your pay for optimizer? Post your best options and I will believe your system works! I challenge you to post the best lineup here for tonight, and if it scores as big as planned I will tell everyone I know and post everywhere that your system works and to pay for it.

  39. It seems to me if I have someone playing in the last games every night I seem to always break even or win. Does anyone else do or is just me ? Thank you DFSR your optimizer is a life saver the only thing make sure you do your homework on the low end players because ive found a couple of them get sent to the D-league but still be in your line up optimizer. Other than that it’s the best tool I’ve used since day one of fantasy sports.

    • I believe you are winning on the last game because it is usually a West coast game and that usually means Steph Curry and Draymond Green and that inconsistent not very good leach brother Klay Thomp. Also Laker J Randle and all the teams that play against the Lakers, and the players on the Clippers (CP3, D Jordan), and teams that play against the Clippers . The Kings and Boogie Cousins and teams that play against them. People also win on the east coast teams who pick for and against: Philly Sixers, Wash Warriors, Brooklyn Nets, NY Knickerbockers.

  40. DeAndre Jordan or K-Towns? Thoughts anyone?

  41. Hey guys I’m new to DFSR. I’m only doing the 10 o’clock games tonight. Any advice on some good lineups? I can never seem to get in the top picks. Looking to hit one of these big.

  42. Hey DFSR – What’s the latest news on Rondo and Markieff Morris?

  43. Thanks Doug – definitely appreciate the info! I’ve been playing DFS since 2012 but I’m pretty new to DFSR…getting back to me so quickly is why I will stick with you guys – you seem to care about your customers and that’s hard to find in today’s world. Thanks again for the late info…!

    • Thanks! We try our best and know what it’s like to get info from bigger sites. It’s why we created this one really.

  44. I’m always 1 or 2 players off…Hope my luck start to change with DFSR

  45. I was ready to spend on premium, BUT, a few Phoenix players did very good last night and you all had neither a one pegged, and the weak greak forgot to eat his alphabet soup. FAIL. Anyway, if your system was so good you would use it exclusively and not rent /pimp it out. And your company would be called: DFSR Winnings Corp. LLC.

  46. Derozan did great last night. Was not listed here on the free garbage we are given. Thank you. But if DFSR free picks do not pan out why are we to believe in your pay for optimizer? Post your best options and I will believe your system works! I challenge you to post the best lineup here for tonight, and if it scores as big as planned I will tell everyone I know and post everywhere that your system works and to pay for it.

  47. Glad I kept Derozan. The punt players really underdelivered. I think I will not play anyone not vying for a playoff run.. ie: Pelicans. Powell(Dallas) was a total bust too. Boggie went freakin nuts..again. insane.

    • Slightly disagree here. Frazier, Hamilton and Ajinca all hit 5X value at their prices last night.

  48. Yeah they did actually. I think Powell was my only dud. Both my 50/50 paid out, but was talking tourney. Doug you guys are awesome. Glad I found you guys!!
