Sorry, I have 10 minutes so this will be quick. I have tried to catch up on all of the injury news and we’re still not getting all of the Pelicans news. Now I am getting news that Favors is out as well as Okafor. This puts Messi as a top play at 3000. If I only knew that Jackson or Redick were going to sit, I would definitely fire up Alexander-Walker, another near minimum salary play at 3100. I think he is going to get playing time regardless now, though. I can also get behind playing E’Twaun Moore at 4000 just for the value and the upside on this slate. This is going to allow me to get to James and Davis, who are projected to win by 14 points against Atlanta. I still think they can fill up the stat sheet in 3 quarters. Then I feel like I should be playing someone from Golden State, either Alec Burks or Draymond Green, Paschall, Robinson, Poole. Just take your pick. Then from the Memphis and Denver game, I don’t like targeting Denver, so if I play someone from Memphis, I might have to go to Ja Morant at 6500.

Post-Analysis:

This is obsession at its finest LOL. I even failed to mention about the WAS/ORL game which I would have loved to play Vucevic and/or Beal in that matchup, and for Denver and Memphis, it would have done me well to play Murray. He’s a guy I never think about playing, but every once in a while explodes and I don’t like playing Jokic so a great pivot. I should consider at least playing him from Denver if we can expect anything near to this in the future. I made this a two-game slate waiting for the news in the Pelicans game, which was smart, but I still could have made a play or two from the two previous games with earlier start times. I absolutely could have crushed if I would have played the value plays I wanted to play here (Melli, Alexander-Walker and Hayes who I didn’t think about) along with James, Holiday, Murray, and Vucevic or Beal. I think I could have fit all of these in there. The three values plays plus Lebron and Murray would have left 23200 for 3 more players and an average of 7733 per player. Let’s throw in Holiday (8400) and Vucevic (8200), and I still would have 6600. No way! Let’s check the math: 3000 + 3100+ 3300 + 10700 + 6700 + 8400 + 8200 = 43400. Wow! Okay, we’re already up to 351 FPTS! I would then only need 25.25 more for 1st. To show off, I could put Eric Paschall in that place at 5000 for 42.25, but I don’t have to be that extravagant. Evan Fournier would have worked too with 43.75 FPTS. Paul Millsap at 39.25, but at the very minimum Draymond Green had 25.5 and would have gotten the job done at 6200. Until next time.

Possible Winning Lineup:

PG Nickeil Alexander-Walker NO 35.25
SG Jamal Murray DEN 67.5
SF Lebron James LAL 68.25
PF Nicolo Melli NO 28.75
C Jaxson Hayes NO 31
G Bradley Beal WAS 56.5
F Draymond Green GS 25.5
UTIL Nikola Vucevic ORL 63.75

My Best Lineup:

PG LeBron James LAL 68.25
SG Nickeil Alexander- Walker 35.25
SF E’Twaun Moore NO 19.75
PF Kenrich Williams NO 24.5
C Nicolo Melli NO 28.75
G Trae Young ATL 46.25
F Anthony Davis LAL 30.75
UTIL Alec Burks GS 19.5
