I didn't watch, but heard he took a shot to the back and was out after that.

Well I have to get off DraftKings when I have too much free time. This is what happens:

- I set a lineup and enter.
- Can't put all my eggs in one basket! I decide to set another lineup, and I enter that.
- Then I think, "Wow, that is one kick-ass lineup! I need to enter that one in a few more contests!" So I do.
- But then I see I have too many of that lineup entered, and to diversify I edit that lineup for one or two entries.
- Then I think, "Wow, that is one kick-ass lineup! I need to enter that one in a few more contests!" So I do...
- etc...

Now I'm looking at $8.50 entered for the week when I started by entering $.25 contests...

But those lineups are so good!! So I enter one or two of them in $5 doubler contests...

Soon I'll be the guy at the intersection with a cardboard sign that says, "Will draft for food"

And I shall stand next to you my friend. I've reigned myself in a bit. Haven't had more than 5 a week yet. Only won $3 this last week. But between $.25 and $1 contests, I came out $1 ahead. Got into a Mon-Thur one last night. Rawls and Ebron did me no favors. Lockett either. So probably out another $.25.

My $3 win though was as good as I've done yet. Was a smaller league and got closer to the top. I seem to do a little better every week. Just need that 1 or 2 guys to hit and get lucky. One of these days I'll hit it big!(maybe win $10.) :lol:

Yeah I'm up $4.77 on a Mon-Thur game that cost me a dollar. But I only have three players left to play, so I'll probably watch that disappear, especially if Gore doesn't play.

I'm waiting on Gore for mine as well. Plenty of money left to grab Lynch or someone else though if I need to change last minute.

I had assumed all along that there was insider stuff going on and that Wall St. analytics types were making thousands upon thousands of different lineups using data monster computer models.

There is hope, but not for us.
Meh.

I was winning $250 last night going into half time on fandual, but then freaking Andrea Johnson gets two TDs and it knocked me down to 4th place= $75. Not bad for $5, but I really wanted first place!!

BeastMode out, again.

I own Rawls in a few Dynasty leagues.

Wait and see mode, I guess. Lynch does have nearly 2100 career carries at age 29.
Meh.

Schefter reporting that Julius Thomas is making his debut this week and will not be limited.

I had been using Ladarius Green in two of my leagues and he's done well, but now Gates is back and he's likely to cut into Green's looks.

Do I trust reports of Thomas playing and being unlimited? Bigger question, how is Jax/Bortles gonna use him?
