    Dario is 6’10’‘ and Noel is 6’11’‘ with a huge wing span. I do not think the Bucks big can contain them at all. I am locking in 75% of the combo for GPPS and mixing around

    don’t forget Holmes
    pt/min last night was insane

    No joke.

    Against the clippers last night McConnell-Covington-Saric-Noel had 130+ points on FD. They are all under $5500.

    Just sayin.

    I think the place to target Milwaukee is vs. bigs, and small forward. Delly is back in the starting lineup and they seem to do well defending vs. point guards. I like Noel/Covington from that game.

  • bstreich9

    Everyone on Noel, rightfully so, but I will pivot to some Richaun Holmes.

    I just wonder what kind of minutes he will see. He hasn’t played 20 minutes on the second end of a back to back all season & he’s coming off his highest minute total of the season last night. This is a guy that has a history of knee problems, who they most likely want to trade. Obviously they don’t have many options right now, and maybe they don’t care so much about his long term health since they might be moving him anyways, but I still wouldn’t be shocked if he ends up playing only 18 minutes or so either.

    You can’t look at those stats. All of those other games on 2nd of a back to back Okafor was starting all those games, he has been a guy coming off the bench all season. He routinely played 30+ minutes in back to backs last year. The only way he is seeing only 18 minute tonight is if he gets in foul trouble, he was their best player last night, their whole season has had offense revolving around their big men and they want to win games and change the culture. He will see at least 28 minutes again.

    What about Willy Hernandez all? Seems like he runs that second unit especially against Dallas

    Brook Lopez is too cheap on dk

    I was just about to come on here and say the same thing. I think this game COULD be full of fantasy points. Im digging a little deeper now though. But at first glance… Lopez vs Whiteside could be a battle. Plus Brooklyn is usually competitive at home.

    Just was looking at hernangomez think he could be good and low owned

  • WestCrook1

    If Zeller and Frank are ruled out Hawes becomes a great play

  • WestCrook1

    LeBron statement game coming up

  • Ronboogie6

    I know he has been horrendous but is anybody gonna take a shot at Kristap because of low ownership and low price?

    Barkley/Iverson/Moses?

    No Dr. J? Shame!

  • P0key

    Steph Curry had jersey retired at highschool yesterday…remember when Austin Rivers did that months ago and went off….maybe durant takes a seat a backseat and let steph put on a show..

    Couldn’t make it work. I’d have to go down to Mike Gminski at center.

    Absolutely. Im gonna play him until he has that big game at his low price. Its coming eventually. Tonight could be the night.

    Do you have any basis for saying that or just guessing? Milwaukee is pretty crappy team right now. Over their last 5 they are getting rebounded by 2 boards a game, giving up 9 steals and 7 blocks per game, not to mention giving up almost 112 points per game. He is still 4,100 on FD, he may not score in the 40’s again but a 10 point 8 board, 3 assist, 2 block 2 steal game is almost his floor tonight without foul trouble. That puts him over 30 points and that is a realistic floor, he could go for 40 or more easily. Just guessing at things isn’t very helpful, try to back things up.

    Great post. ….Xdan. Exposure, Minutes, and Foul trouble go thru my thought Process with Noel….If I have 10 GPP lineups, I will have 30% exposure to Nerlans Noel on FD because: FD Price, Usage, Points in the Paint(Mil last 3 games are not performing well), rebounds, ect.ect.ect are way to JUICY to Ignore or Fade. Also, I’m not paying attention to the B2B issue due last year’s game logs which showed he played 30+ minutes on b2b nights( several times), even off injury. He can get into foul trouble because the FREAK will be going to the RIM!!!! However, Illsova or Covington or Holmes might be the players who pick up early foul trouble(Illsova and COV lead the team in Fouls per game). MY only FEAR is that Vegas has this game being a Blowout(resting Starters) and the fact that DK didnt adjust his price with the possibility of Okafor sitting again. In the past, DK has adjusted pricing for certain players that would benefit from being a bench player to a starter; IE: Terrance Jones(The Brow constantly hurt). This seems Odd!!!!! However, I will be be Lock n Loading at a least 3 Noel and McConnel stacks tonight. In addition, I feel Saric, Holmes, and Illsova are overpriced on FD. They will difficult to use on a 9 game slate.

  • snivlem77

    Can anybody explain to me what the all-star slate on FD is all about? Same games as main slate, only one small GPP…I don’t get it

    It seems to me like they just increased everyone’s pricing between 1000-2000 depending on the player. I like the idea.

    What time is the NBA Grind Down usually posted? Thanks!

  • coachearnest

    Noel should be 100% in cash games tonight and one of the other Philly bigs should be 50% owned. So put in Noel and research between Illy and Holmes as the other one.

  • coachearnest

    between 1 and 2 central

    I agree its a great play. However, Poor shooting in Basketball is like a Baseball player in a 2-32 slump.It could be tuff to predict when they get out of it. We had the same problem in MLB with Gian Carlo Stanton. He was priced so low you had to put him in at a least 1 Gpp a night hoping he crush it.

  • monarch

    I can’t play Steph. I see the angle but he’s not last year’s Steph. I watched the last game at Miami, where he went 42,7,7 a year ago and he’s just not that player right now. He’s fooling around too much and I feel like KD comes out blazing after playing poorly at Miami.
