FanDuel Diary: A Forgettable Friday

FanDuelSH_300x250

Congratulations to “knicksfan18” who scored a remarkable 324 points — led by Russell Westbrook (50) and Antawn Jamison (48) — to qualify for the $150,000 DFBBC final and earn a trip to Las Vegas for that event in March. Things didn’t go as planned in my Friday leagues. Kobe Bryant was content to watch everyone else score for a change, Tyreke Evans was a late scratch and I sure picked the wrong guy between Gerald Wallace (29) and Arron Afflalo

Fan Duel Diary: Enjoy the Night Off

Congratulations to “ajhoff32” for scoring 309 points to win the $325 first prize in our $1,500 tournament last night. My team struggled in 69th among the 167 entries, as bargain picks Alexey Shved and Moe Harkless were disappointing. Down $16 now from the original $100 bankroll in Week 4, I’ll have to wait for tomorrow to get even, as there are no NBA games tonight. Happy Thanksgiving to all our American friends and your loved ones. On Friday, there’s another DFBBC qualifier.
