    4,400 left at the UTL spot -> who would you play and why?

    Nance because he’s going put heroin in Randles pregame creatine shake leading to him sleeping on the bench.

    IF Lillard is out is Napier a lock?

  • cubanoshake10

    why no middleton tonight?

  • troutbum1616

    This lakers game tonight is the exact reason we all play GPPs, minutes are sketchy but if you hit it right and catch the value you can crush.

    Yes I think so

    I like him, yet Fournier is 1200 cheaper. I’m still going to play some Middleton. I think either he or Bledsoe, is going to go off tonight, so I’m sprinkling both of them into my lineups.

    When there are guys on the slate like Bledsoe, Payton, Lowry and Dunn who have 60 point upside…guys like Napier, Jones and Ennis just aren’t locks.

    My opinion on FD is the guys spending down at point guard are going to end up with higher price options at the other positions that are going to flop.

    yeah Im looking at pg and after Napier there is really nothing but Ennis. Very risky.

    Definitely is hard to look past. Issue being they are in the 8 o’clock slot this evening. Do you see his statis being announced prior to lock? Have 2 lineups on ice based upon his status, probably sprinkle a little of both even if they give Napier the green light…

  • cubanoshake10

    who is the better play..elf or dunn?

  • Stewartcr

    I think I’ll roll out one Ennis lineup to fit ABC and KAT in one but mainly going to go balanced this slate.

    Still unsure of what to make of Randle on Fanduel, he’s priced up to 6200 there and kinda liking Biyombo more for only 300 more.

    Any suggestions on Randle? Also is it generally a poor decision to stack more than two players from the same team in GPP? Thanks in advance.

    Dunn has looked great in his first game back and Elf is always a boom or bust play in my eyes. He either goes off or underperforms your expectations. However I don’t think he will necessarily ever completely tank your lineup like the riskier punt plays may.

  • Isolitary18

    Man i don’t wanna pay up for anyone over 8k on DK…every lineup I like once finished is balanced like crazy.

  • depalma13

    I think I’m playing Ant in gpps but fading him in pickem and fading Randle in gpps and using him in pickem.

    Stacking 2+ players is a viable strategy depending on the matchup

    I’m just going to assume lillards out on the front end of a back to back. Could backfire, but worth the risk for me.

    Me too, especially in cash if you are fading ABC

  • bbeast

    Tonight seems tricky with the Lakers in the mix. Most of the value appears to come from their backups who are filling in, but there is no certainty on minutes. If KCP and Ball were in play, I’d be pretty much fading this game. Ennis let’s me pay up at PF, even though the options are quite a bit there.

    As it stands I’m on Lavert, Fornier, Gordon and RHJ. I also like Bledsoe tonight. I’m on the fence with Antetokonmpo. Looking at his history, he’s failed to reach 5x value on FD a number of times throughout the season. When he’s done that 4 games in a row, he usually hits with 55+ points. Those were against CLE (twice), UTA and SAC. I think so much of his usage has dropped to Bledsoe, so not sure he’s going to do it against Toronto who is 13-1 @ home. However, he does play the second unit, and Toronto has just average second unit players. I’m leaning towards fade…

    I do like Nurkic tonight, he has pretty high usage of all the other Centers on the board tonight. I’d like to go back to Randle, but I think his matchup is tougher with Towns.

    I have a line(single entry Gpp player) I really like just cant decide between Jrue Holliday and Julious Randle? Gut tells me Jrue but the line up builder says Randle?

    I find myself putting him in every LU..was way wrong on him vs OKC, he should be motivated coming off suspension and did really well vs the Bucks last season. Giannis is probably on him though which could be a concern.
