    so Butler is overrated now?

    Yea, I still don’t believe in him. You’re fairly new here right? I think I’ve said he’s overrated here in the past. I’ll admit he’s kind of shut me up this season but I’m still not buying into him! Watched the game vs the Thunder on ESPN on Wednesday and he doesn’t look that much different compared to Chicago Bulls Butler.

    If it wasn’t for Rondo last year, Butler and the Bulls would’ve been swept by the Celtics!

    Good call on Nance last night.

    Thanks…too bad I only did a few lineups, as I thought the slate was trash (and I was right) and he was in my worst 😂

    Evan Turner against the Pelicans anyone?

    I have a lineup I really like but can’t fit in Beasley so I am looking for an upside alternative. And from what I understand SF against NOP is a real thing…..

    So you guys really think Bender is gonna put up a repeat performance? 25 seems more likely, which yeah at 4.3k is still more than 5x

  • kps3205s

    I argued the other day Domantas Sabonis would not be a good choice on DK at $6400 vs Miami. But tonight vs Cleveland is a different scenario for him to be considered at $6400.

    I reference his game against them on 11/1 when Turner was out and he played 37 minutes. Now add Clev on a b2b and their bigs are well…terrible last night. Now look at DvP which I know can be argued in either direction. Just s thought.

    Edit: Miami

    Yeah, I’m new. Never post & haven’t been a member since 2014 lol. Anyway Bulls Butler was still a beast

    It’s not bad, but at 8.2k, that won’t win you a GPP.

    Except he will not get 30 minutes

    That’s the million dollar question…someone’s who good at ownership projections..gimme a projection on Bender. That’s where I want to be. He got upside and bust risk. There have been games he’s gotton 30 minutes of run and have done nothing with it, and games where’s he’s smashed. So I don’t want to fade, yet I’m certainly not all in. I’ll take a field size share and win elsewhere.

    I don’t think we should overthink Bender. Min priced and most likely going to start. A reasonable line might be

    7 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 steal, 2 blocks, 3 turnovers, and 13 points.

    That’s good for 9x on FD.

    I was going to ask if he was today’s free square.

    Kind of liking Ryan Anderson today. PHO is 30th against PF’s (FD scoring). Today I am doing the $1 3 entry max. I will stick him in one LU for sure.

    What’s the opinion on Beasley? Think he could continue his streak

    @Bnett2210 said...

    I keep on fading him and he keeps on going off! I think I’ve played him like twice this whole season and that was back in early/mid December. I don’t want to cool him off! He’s the only reason the Knicks are even competitive these days.

    So for everyone’s sake, I’ll keep on fading him. Enjoy your 7x+ everyone!

    I am not seeing this statistical weakness in favor of Wall? Orlando ranks middle of the NBA in PG defense. Now, SG on the other hand….

    Not sure where you got your stats but according to Rotogrinders defense vs position Orlando is 30th against PG’s (FD). They are no better than 24th against any other position (including 29th against PFs).

    I’m doing an Anderson/Bender PF lineup as well

  • KindGuy

    Schroeder seems to never excel in smash spots. So I’m fading him against the Nets.

    DK color coded DVP says 29th

    Lots of bender talk but isn’t Daniels in a great spot to as Jackson is doubtful? I would imagine two of the three make value in bender, Daniels and Dudley as they all should see 25 minutes plus with Dudley being the biggest risk. FD pricing.

    When you put up 139 in a lineup, its time to take a day off…

    Yea I was wondering if he was going to cool off or not, I’ve been lucky to get him in 2 good spots lately, but just wasn’t sure if this be the one he cools off or not.

    I also agree with the Schroder take and not smashing in smash spots, I get him wrong every time.

    And DURANT

    Add Harden and LeBron too.

  • Petergunz82

    @TrustinthePlan said...

    Does the MEM/DEN game have any appeal? Maybe Plumlee and Lyles?

    Tyreke but he seems like more of a cash play at his price, should be good for low 40s

    No. On fan duel, he is bare minimum of 3.5k. It is hard to fade him at that price and match up.

    If Houston decides to go small and run Anderson at the 5 (since all of their other back ups are injured, and Capella can’t play the whole game!), I was thinking that Len (if he can stay out of foul trouble) would get some additional run for PHO when HOU is in that lineup configuration, as Len wold be able to stay with Anderson a little better. And at Len’s FD price of 3.7K, Len would only need 26 fpts to hit 7x which is completely feasible.

  • mbunner23

    Last night was brutal. PHO/HOU and WAS/ORL is what I’m looking at most tonight. Also liking the NETS/Hawks game. Some of the plays I like tonight are..

    Wall/CP3/Schroder

    Gordon/Beal/Booker

    Capela

    Hate his price on fan duel. However, he still in play. Haven’t decided if I’m playing him.
