NBA Daily Fantasy DraftKings GPP Lineup Review | Feb. 22

In this NBA DraftKings GPP, the 73,529 total entries came from 21,643 different DFS players, 3,217 (15%) of which made a profit. A total of 85% of DFS players who entered this GPP lost money.

The Winner

Congratulations to yo-teach, who won this GPP with a score of 356 with a single entry. The winning lineup used all $50,000 salary and had a cumulative team ownership of 162.5%. The key in this lineup were the value pieces David Nwaba and Jalen Brunson, both of whom were less than 10% owned and smashed. Russell Westbrook at 7.5% rostered did not hurt either.

Salary and Ownership

Eight of the top 50 finishers used less than $49,700. Here are the top salaries used last night:

  • $50,000 | 50%
  • $49,900 | 23%
  • $49,800 | 12%
  • $49,700 | 6%
  • $49,600 | 3%

The most popular optimal lineup was played 67 times, using all $50,000 team salary and having a cumulative team ownership of only 187.7%, which is surprisingly low. It scored a 264 and did not cash.

The 150-Maxers

One hundred and twelve 150-maxers entered 16,800 lineups, making up 23% of entries in this tournament. Thirty-six made a profit, and eight cashed fewer than 20 lineups. All told, 150-maxers took 15 of the top 20 spots.

The most profitable 150-maxer was JBCJBCJBC, one of the best in the business. He took second and fourth place; his best lineup used $49,800 and 103.8% ownership. Of note is that it does not have two players from the same team.
