Payne's Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup

Last night was a nightmare as Kent Bazemore, Lance Stephenson and Amar'e Stoudemire didn't come close to earning their value. Back to the drawing board for tonight.

PG - Trey Burke, $5800 - I'm following the minutes here as he didn't have more than four in any category last night. Tonight should be a much easier go as the 76ers are terrible.

SG - Dion Waiters, $4400 - This looks like a mistake considering he's topped 30 FPs over his last two games since returning from injury. The Knicks are not a great team defensively.

SF - Gordon Hayward, $7500 - It's too good of a matchup and he could approach a triple-double if Philly keeps this close.

PF - Thaddeus Young, $7500 - He should be priced about $1500 more and I'd consider taking him at that price. Him, Waiters and the next pick were easy takes tonight.

C - Marcin Gortat, $6800 - He's recorded at least 30 FPs in consecutive games forever now and has an awesome matchup.

F - Chris Douglas-Roberts, $3200 - Will be the most owned player tonight despite the bad matchup. Recorded 34.5 FPs last night and is dirt cheap.

G - Darren Collison, $4900 - I might switch this to Jamal Crawford depending on whether or not he plays. I'll go with whoever is starting.

Util - Blake Griffin, $9400 - This is going to be a blowout but I think he can do enough in three quarters to earn his value. Almost had a triple-double last game and I trust him more than Chris Paul right now.

What I Think You Should Know About The USMNT
Needless to say, it's been a great World Cup thus far. The USMNT having some success would be awesome.
La-La-La-L.A. Gets Lord Stanley!
Just a few things that caught my eye:
  • Alec Martinez's Cup-winning goal celebration? # priceless. I wonder if he'll ever get his gloves back.
  • Henrik Lundqvist stopped the 50th shot of the game. He couldn't stop the 51st. #connsmythe if the Rangers had found a way to come back in this series.
Do Analytics Take the Fun Out of Sports?
Apparently that was the topic of one of the presentations at the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference in Boston last week. The presenter, Yale's Edward Tufte, opined:

Don't let people tell you analytics are reductionist and take the joy out of sports. They mostly just take the stupidity out of sports.

Is he right?

The Problem With Drafting Billy Hamilton
Billy Hamilton went for $28 in the NL LABR auction this past weekend. I discussed this with a fellow writer who participates in Tout Wars with me later this month and we discussed the problem with investing heavily into Hamilton.
