    We’re not looking for a miracle out of him. He has the potential to hit 30+ fantasy points. At 3700 on Fanduel, I think he will be like 50%+ owned in GPPs. I don’t think anybody is stopping Giannis tonight to be fair.

    Yeah and with his tired legs how many fouls will he pick up trying to stop Giannis as he drives to the rim. Might be better value also with the potential to hit 30+. Good way to get ahead of the field if he busts. Just things to consider before blindly jamming him in. I may be jamming in by the time the we get to lock after I look over everything

    To add to the DeRozan conversation D. White is suppose to be back tonight I believe. How much that matters I’m not sure yet. And If Aldridge is back as well it may be harder for DDR to get there

    Wouldnt Porter be the starting PF though? Also potential foul trouble didnt stop Randle putting up 29 and 14 although it was a blowout. It may be that forwards are just going to let him get his going to the rim and just try to limit him the best they can without fouling in some spots. Plus read that he plays a more free safety role on defense for the bucks like James does for the Lakers.

  • samuri8

    Thad costs nothing and is actually a good ball player. As of now I am playing but I will concede that a point spread like this makes minutes very unpredictable.

  • 866

    Wow no M Porter Jr now? Had on a bunch of “balanced” lines with Mitchell and others 6500-7000 range. Looks like Free Square Thaddeus today. Also gonna have some D Bane at 3700. Still loving Curry/Lillard pairing and K D also. Gonna be a wild slate.

    Looking at the rotations half of Young’s mins would be against Giannis assuming they ran the same rotation as yesterday which I doubt they do since Williams was in foul trouble and Carter Jr. had his mins limited for some reason. Maybe the b2b

    As a Wizards fan, we are trash.

    I see they lost to the Bulls

    My condolences

  • rstylz

    can some one please just make me a couple LU’s today. My head hurts.

    I am not 19 anymore

  • frugal

    Thad is a trap. They aren’t going to run him big minutes in a blowout.

    No problem, I’ll make you a few lineups, yet you can only play them in high stakes head to heads versus me (and no substitutions) 😜

    Anybody have the stones to play Luka tonight? Struggling right now, but he has to bust out at some point, right??

    I want too, but an trigger shy. Local media had a little feature on him and he’s extremely frustrated with his poor performance so far. Immediately following the CHA game he went out on the court and had an individual shooting practice for 45 minutes. He’s going to explode sooner or later, but if Jimmy’s playing tonight I’m not sure it’s the right matchup.

    I try to grab a few shares anytime he is on the slate

  • Bodiaz36

    Yeah, the whole Dallas team looks out of sync right now, but I think the game can stay competitive. I just don’t wanna be a day late on the first Luka 60 burger. Obviously, it’s not optimal/cash play atm

    Thad would be great value at 3.5 because he is a good hooper and can fill up the stat sheet not just some scrub filling up minutes. Main concerns are: 1) yesterday was his first game back with no preseason and 2) it is a road back to back. He was coming back from a leg infection which makes me think his conditioning should not be the best. However, he did run 27 minutes yesterday no problem and they are out the same guys. I had tons of Otto on the early slate and have no problem going back there. Although my fav punt from the Bulls may be this Gafford dude at 3k. Should see 20 minutes and almost all of the 4th if (and likely when) it blows out.

    J-Rich revenge game? Price is right on him as well.

    Maybe. I typically don’t do enough entries where I’d target this game on a slate this size.

  • winnerchickendinner

    Conley shares?

  • frugal

    Is it time yet for MIN to unleash Edwards?

  • samuri8

    The max chaos news today would definitely be if Jamal Murray sits out.

    @winnerchickendinner said...

    I ran my projections despite feeling I don’t yet have enough data and it’s pointing me in the opposite direction of my gut.

    Gut feels: target WAS, MIN, BRK, ATL with Beal and Durant as locks

    Model: target CHA, MIL, CHI value, with Jokic and Conley as locks.
