Quote of the day
"Unfortunately, we didn't recognize the time situation. … It's another way to come out on the other end of the stick." -- Cavs forward Antawn Jamison, after the team failed to attempt a shot in the final two seconds, down 3 points to Dallas
You could have piled up some big stats and fantasy points last night if you looked in the right places. It wasn’t necessarily the usual places, though. How about a lineup of Andre Miller, Kevin Martin,Carmelo Anthony,LaMarcus Aldridge, and Channing Frye? That 5-man starting lineup would have generated 256 FanDuel points, an average of 51 per player. Only two of those five players found their way onto my FanDuel $55K contest roster, but I still put up a total of 273 points, which is almost a 99th percentile output for that contest format. It was also a full 90 points better than what I had managed in my previous daily contest entry.
The Waste Management Phoenix Open finally wound up yesterday. Congrats to shankopotomus9 and SANFORDORS, who posted the top GuruGolf scores in best ball and worst ball, respectively. Although Mark Wilson was the tournament winner, the top GuruGolf price gainers were Tommy Gainey and Gary Woodland, by virtue of their solid performances and their relatively low (mid-$600) opening prices. Slightly over half of all GuruGolf teams managed a net value gain for the weekend.
