Minutes Watch – Tuesday, March 8th
Last night, the recent trend of ridiculously high Cash Lines continued. As of the time
of this article, the Cash line for $5 Double Ups is currently sitting at 357. YIKES! Honestly, this is
what I expect from NBA DFS in March, as the only people really playing this time of year are the big boys
who have their process, algorithm and whatever other tool, finely tuned. They don’t miss value plays this time
of year and that causes the cash lines to sore through March and April.
With all that being said, I’m not going to stop playing, and I hope you don’t stop either.
I will recommend however, that, during this time of the year, you should scale back your action a bit.
If you were playing $50 per day, drop it down to $30 or $25. Take a few more shots in GPP than you normally
would, because, hell, why not? If you put up 350 you’re probably barely going to cash your 50/50’s anyway, if
you cash them at all. So, take a few shots late in the year. This time of the year is when I took down the $2 shot in 2014.
Gorgui Dieng dropped close to 80 FP for me that night, out of nowhere.
Anyway, below, I will try to highlight some of the players at each position, that have seen a significant uptick
in their minutes played. As the season winds down, you’ll want to pay close attention to this, as, teams with
little to no shot at the playoffs begin to play their young players, so their can evaluate them heading into next Season.
On the flip side, you will see teams who’s playoff seeding is secured, start play their starters less minutes, and sometimes, sit them out altogether.
In the position charts below the MIN DIFF column represents the Difference in the Players’ last 5 Games
vs his Season Long Minutes per game average. This should give you a good idea of which players are
receiving more minutes than usual. With a little research, I’m sure you could find out why each player
has seen an uptick in minutes.

The Raptors and the Spurs jump out to me, in the early games and then the late night
