    Is playing teague and smart together today stupid? I think they should share the court for some minutes no?

    Let’s just say, it is not Smart!

    Teague doesn’t seem to play more than 20 minutes no matter how many guys they are down, so I’m not sure I will play a lot of him.

    Harden down to 10200.. lowest in a long time. Feel like he has a good game tonight. I’m not going 100% though. This is all 1st glance. I had 10500 left after my GS Stack. Okay Dray hasn’t paid.. today’s the day I feel like.

    Got to play with your gut! I just don’t like Harden with Kyrie and Durant all playing. Actually don’t like either of the three when they are all playing at current prices.

    Finally a great price for Ingram and playing a Spurs team on a B2B. I see a quiet 50 burger from him tonight. Hard not to take Seth Curry and Tobias Harris against a crappy Pistons tram but pace of play has me concerned. Bump to Tobias if Embid out, not sure if I’ll go Dwight. Kinda want to play Teague, not many cheap PGs catching my eye. Also stuck between Covington (yeah, I know), Vanderbilt and Roby at PF. 100% BAM in my 4 LUs. Cheap C sucks too – a bunch of guys who get 18-28, sometimes 30 aside from Jokic, Vuc and Turner. I like Wiseman the most right now. Also, a lot of guys like Ellington/Thad/Okogie who’ve been cheap and getting minutes are now in the mid $4k’s, so punting is tough tonight.

    Why every 5 minutes? Just check 5-10 minutes before each tip time.

    The earlier I get the news the more time I’ll have to decide what do in regards to swapping.

    If I’m just getting the news 5 minutes prior to tip, I’ll have to make rushed decisions.

    Just too much news with COVID…that’s my opinion, yet I’d prefer no late swap. It’s not really even a debate anymore, as both sites tried no late swap and it’s been decided that late swap is the way to go.

    Primarily because as draftkings5464 alluded to, many players thought they were being hurt by no late swap, when in fact they were actually being helped by it.

    Personally, instead of making 5-10 lineups per slate, I’d do over 20 if I knew once first tip came, I can just sit back and relax.

    Anyone think Prince gets a bump with Nance ruled out? Or Allen?

  • realphipps

    Turn $25 into $50 on DK Sportsbook tonight if a Wizard hits a single 3 pointer.

  • marvalgames

    “Teague doesn’t seem to play more than 20 minutes no matter how many guys they are down, so I’m not sure I will play a lot of him.”

    True, but they were playing a lot of Pritchard who is out

    Thats for Friday I believe though

  • IT4MVP

    Are we playing Bam at that price? I know he’s been crushing but……

  • Tribefan18

    I like the boston-chicago game. Boston played last night and the bulls were off. With travel for Boston, and Kemba out again, should be tight.

    Stud and scrub report, few adjustments for early injury news.

    Highest projected in order of FP:

    DK: Jokic, Donic, Durant, Harden, Vuc
    Y: Jokic, Bam, Vuc, Doncic, Irving

    Looking at those lists, if there’s enough value, Luka and Jokic pairing could be very profitable.

    Value list:

    Thad Young $12/4.5K – Gafford continues to be a place holder with Carter Jr minutes shifting to Makkanen and Thad. He had his worst showing last game over the last 5 but I feel his minutes were depressed in a B2B. Oddly, CHI had 2 B2B’s seperated by 3 days rest (probably a COVID cancel, can’t remember). I have a strong feeling Thad delivers tonight with the potential for 3X Yahoo 7X DK type of night.

    Isaiah Roby $11/4.6K – Roby has looked pretty good over his last 5 with 4 games at 2.1X Yahoo/5.2X DK, 2 of which the best games he’s had this season outside the opener. POR is 7th in terms of OPP FG% at the rim and Roby takes 71% of his FGA in the paint. Assuming he can stay out of foul trouble, I think he’s got 3X Yahoo/6X DK upside tonight.

    Wayne Ellington $11/4.2K – Ellington has been 2X Yahoo/5.8X DK in 4 of the last 5. Assuming he starts again, he looks like a great value in a rematch where he just put up 29.8/30.5.

    Good luck!

    I like Sabonis. He might not grab 19 boards again, but he’s also not going 1-10 from the field again either

    I know it’s counterintuitive, yet this season had made me wish for no late swap. I used to be a big no late swap proponent, then came around to liking late swap last year/year before, yet it’s getting to be just too much this season. Just too much news, Every…Single…Night.

    I’d rather just have a couple of dead lineups per night at this point, then have to be refreshing BBM every 5 minutes for 3.5 hours. After all, it would affect everyone equally.

    Hard Pass. It would only take 3 or 4 nights of getting screwed before you would be begging for late swap. And why are sitting there hitting refresh every 5 mins? You dont have a cell phone? Turn notifications on and sit back and relax.

  • tmarohl

    Any chance Cleveland goes really big and starts Drummond and Allen?

    I find it best to simply build around most questionable guys and if I use a guy I plan a swap when I build the lineup so things are easier to manage. But I only enter ~6 lineups a night. I can’t imagine trying to stay on top of things if mass entering.

    Yeah, and now they have Carsen Edwards who saw 19 minutes to Teague’s 12 last game. No reason to think those 2 wouldn’t split minutes, also Teague is a declining veteran and Edwards is a guy they might want to develop yet. Jmo, but I’ll probably have very little of either.

    EDIT: Brown and Smart can play PG too, I believe. I dunno, I’m just looking elsewhere.

    That may be true for you, you may be begging for late swap, yet not me.

    I had my best nba DFS season by far when it was no late swap. I understand that yes, maybe 2-5 of my 15 lineups per night would be dead, yet I also understand that so would other peoples, and I’m playing against them. And that it would even out.

    In fact it would benefit me more, cause I hand build lineups, not using a lineup builder, not reoptimizing using an optimizer. Just swapping by hand.

    I can probably turn on notifications, yet I don’t use my cell for DFS, and have my tablet open to BBM anyway. So clicking refresh, while annoying, isn’t as annoying as deciding what changes to make to my lineups multiple times per night.

    Point’s moot anyway. NBA DFS will always be late swap. Just found it extra annoying this season with the amount of late news to digest every night.

    I’m not on Teague either but the reason Carsen saw so many minutes is because the C’s were up 35 heading into the fourth.
    Teague was third worst in def. rating last year and it may cause Lavine or Porter to chuck on him (Smart makes the sport harder though)
