2015 AF Rank - 811 2016 AF Rank - 854

Anyone tried this on NBA?  I figured out the way to win in AFL and pretty well during the season, NBA is another story, more people seem to be playing and it's harder to make a solid team and pick the right guys on the right days.  Best I can come up with after playing it for a few weeks is to pick the guy you think will post the best fantasy line and then build players around him, cheap and expensive to fit under your salary cap.

I've heard NBA is the hardest to make money on in the regular season when it comes to daily fantasy. Pre-season is a different story, but to generally be in the money come the regular season you need your lineups to be scoring ridiculously well.

Yep, it's owning me at the moment, will try for the next 3 days and if no luck I'll stick to money lines.

Tried a couple of games but I lack the player knowledge to be competitive.    Will stick with AFL and dabble in NRL.


 next NFL season will get involved with my son who has been playing Fantasy in the US for past five years.l   We lived in Denver for 2 years and he was a NFL nut before we got there.

Yeah FanDuel and DraftKings are big business in the states!  NBA is way tougher than AFL so I've given it the flick too.  Basically need to pick the best 1-2 players of the day and then build around them, but some days players are so off and their price tag is too high!

This is why I don't play NBA Moneyball!  Everyone of my players scored over 20 and I still finished outside the top 155!  :o

I put an entry in for the Bulldogs v Eels NRL game tonight. Unlike the AFL I almost found it impossible to use up all my salary cap ::)
