Tomorrow night, we have another Sheridan Hoops Freeroll just for you, with $300 cash in the prize pool and $100 for the winner. It’s fun to play, and the price is right, but with over 1,000 entries last week, and over 400 hundred already this week, it’s quite a challenge.
DraftStreet offers daily fantasy hoops leagues even when there are only two NBA games. Click the top-left logo to play tonight, starting with free contests if you prefer.
I’m down $39 from the $100 weekly bankroll after three days, and still haven’t had a team finish in the money. It takes only one good night each week to turn a profit, and tonight is a brand-new season, so we’re not giving up.
|DraftStreet 15||Jan. 31|
|Starters||$9,000 to $13,000|
The daily chart makes five recommendations in three different price ranges. Narrowing the player pool down to 15 still leaves a lot of possible 8-man lineups. Enter early; many good contests will fill before the 8:00 EST deadline. You can make unlimited roster changes until then.
F1 Kevin Durant (OKC-F) $23,104
F2 David Lee (GS-F) $17,084
G1 Darren Collison (DAL-G) $13,010
G2 Klay Thompson (GS-G) $12,808
C1 Andrew Bogut (GS-C) $12,463
C2 Kendrick Perkins (OKC-C) $7,733
U1 Darrell Arthur (MEM-F) $7,368
U2 Draymond Green (GS-F) $6,258
The above lineup depends on Kevin Durant getting enough minutes to run up his numbers. I’m concerned that the Grizzlies will not only be shorthanded, but somewhat shocked by yesterday’s trade, and that game could be out of reach early. Using Draymond Green as a filler is based on Carl Landry and Harrison Barnes being unable to play; if word comes in time that either of them can go, I’ll probably replace Green.
