    Is everyone all of a sudden off of David Lee?

    I am. just a rule of thumb that I don’t play guys at their peak pricing unless it’s Harden, Westy, etc.

    IT is the worst defender in the league, statistically. Whoever he guards, whether it be Wall or Beal will eat. That’s not the only reason I like Wall. Highest projected total, seems to me that Washington wants to send a message to Boston as well. Think Crowder pissed him off. Give me all the Wall

    Or Otto Porter

    Give me all the Crowder! ;-)

    That’s not a bad play either. I’ll have my shares. I’m all over that game.

  • dgballer

    With Bradley out I would expect Smart to take Wall and IT will take Beal. I want to say that’s why Beal went off against them a couple of weeks ago

    xdan…what about TJ McConnell tonight? I want to put him with Elf and load up elsewhere

    those all seem like great logical points based on statistics. certainly more powerful information than his previous games vs BOS.

    I have exposure as well. I’m typically a 1 lineup guy, but I’m throwing a 2nd lineup stacking that game with the exception of Wall and IT where I like Payton and Bledsoe better at their prices (Yahoo specifc).

    Probably bite me in the butt but I’m ziggin while everyone else is zaggin tonight….

    1 of my 2 lineups tonight has McConnell. I’d only roll with him if Oak is out. Very few of Oak’s baskets come off assists, most of his scores they dump it down to him in the post and he creates for himself so he really hurts T.J. (whereas even Embiid has plenty of catch and shoots to get assists for guys). If Oak doesn’t play that really creates a lot of need for TJ to create and with Noel on the floor he is a guy that scores almost all of his points on assists (oops and occasional catch and shoot from 16 and in). So the sixers primary lineup would be TJ surrounded by 3 good shooters and a big man that lends himself to assists so he would have huge assist upside to go with probably 10-14 points some boards and a couple steals.

    My other lineup is running Stauskas because of the same thing and he was the starting 2 and the backup PG against Atlanta which really opens up his upside for extra playmaking.

    wait what happened to Sergio Rodriguez last game? Is he fully out of the rotation now?

  • Monty1507

    Evan Fournier going to play tonight?

    @whitemamba86 said...

    ok who are people playing on dk under 4k thats going to get 25 dk points? only person i see if grant now that hes starting.

    I don’t think it’s unrealistic to think Rosier can get 25 DK pts. Smith could get to 25 pts too. He had 20 against them last time out and that’s with no blocks or steals.

    Jeff Green could get 25 pts. Shabazz. Cory Joseph. Burks. Jamal Murray Hezonja.

    Hard to say, it certainly seemed that way. Stauskas was the clear backup pg against atlanta which was the first time that’s happened when both Sergio and TJ have been healthy. When Embiid isn’t playing it is really difficult for the Sixers to get Sergio on the floor becuase he is just soooo bad defensively. Embiid can erase those mistakes, Oak can’t at all and Nerlens can but not the same way Joel can.

    clippers going to blowout philly tonight over ny halftime

    I was thinking about this the other day. My thought is maybe he has been practicing for the dunk contest and it’s been wearing him out? IDK, only explanation I could come up with when trying to figure it out myself.

    Terry Rozier chase night. Help me baby Jesus

    I’d be surprised, 3rd game in 4 nights for the clips, 2nd of a back to back all on the road. Getting Blake back will be a boost for them but defensively they aren’t that daunting a team right now and Blake first game back will probably actually make them worse defensively assuming he takes minutes from Mbah a Moute. Sixer’s aren’t very good without Embiid but they stayed competitive with Atlanta the entire game at Atlanta the other day and have generally played well at home. I actually think this is a winnable non-Embiid game for the Sixers.

    Marquese Chriss
    Oubre
    Henjoza
    Maybe Sullinger
    Jerebko

    Solid picks. Not sure if Jeff G. @ $3300 but likely close and he’s always in play with me near that price.

    He has killed my LUs past few games smh

  • JSteele

    Not sure why but have a feeling Lee rests for the Spurs tonight. If it happens we will see a lot of Aldridge/Dedmon/Bertans combos

    I’ve long concluded that he is the “dunking’ equivalent of Kyle Korver
