I actually like sports but making fun of sports is still hilarious. And I know nothing about basketball so I'm right with you all.

You kid, but I did make the conscious decision not to use the word "player" in the rules (as opposed to "athlete") since you all are the players and it could get confusing!

Also - I took each of your rosters, got rid of injured players, and used the optimizer to fill them out into full-FanDuel rosters that I submitted into the nickel-entry contest they're hosting. I'll report back if any of your lineups do well!

i'm currently wondering if fantasy sports writers are all just dudes with spreadsheets who don't even know the rules of the sports they cover

I mean, if you were actually good enough you'd be one of the people pulling in a million+ a year betting, not getting ad revenue for writing articles about it.

My only strategy was to focus on 2 games instead of all 3. And then pick 2 players for each team I think will win (I have 0 background knowledge for this. I just guessed), then took 1 from each other team.

I have no idea if they're good. I went with expensive = good which is probably not entirely a fact
