    I really like Derozan tonight with Beal out I don’t see Garett Temple being able to stop him at all. While I may have a couple of lines where I fade Cousins just to give some of my money away, considering the value in other positions I cannot really justify fading him too much. Even if he only scores 50 at his price, there is a good chance that Durant doesn’t score that at his price and same with Westbrook, meanwhile at both of those positions there are viable options in Lillard and Paul George that are several thousand less on FD and could potentially equal production because of closer games and better matchups, I really cannot say the same about the guys that are a couple of grand less than Cousins such as Monroe and Vucevic who both play for Freak show coaches that are liable to bring their minutes down to mid-twenties at the drop of a hat. While I would love a stack of Durant Westbrook and Cousins I really believe that tonight Lillard, PG13 and Cousins is the way to go. IF you want to read more about some of my picks please check out my blog on this site under blogs then NBA. Unfortunately the date on it says Sept 26 because it was late last night when I wrote it and I messed up and the edit function is not working on the site today, so please excuse the error.

    Got any numbers to back up the Tobias claim?

    Double revenge game, Scott Skiles coached Tobias at Milwaukee. Former coach with former player returns for vengeance. LOL What could go wrong. ;)

  • bmckane

    Call me crazy but I kinda like Ray Felton tonight

  • bstreich9

    Any love for CP3?

    Nothing against DeRozan. He is a killer. But I don’t know how you can justify playing him over Archie Goodwin at the moment (DK). Goodwin could feasibly match Demar’s output for 4k less.

    Well done. Who is the sneaky ‘under the radar’ play for tonight?

    Goodwins ceiling is close to DeRozans floor today. Both good plays I may play both.

    Agreed. I think I read DvP for Indiana is 5, but that doesn’t affect CP, Indiana tends to give up points if I remember correctly. May go CP to differentiate in a LU or 2

  • bstreich9

    I like MCW tonight for some reason but I like Middleton also :/

  • moshei24

    Archie / DeRozan / PG13 or Westbrook / Lou Williams / Tucker?

    Paul George said he has tired legs already because his conditioning isn’t where it needs to be after missing a year of ball. Easy fade for me until I see a return to form.

    I wanted to play him I went with Marvin Williams instead still turned out to be a good play as he 8x value. Troy would have netted me a few more pts.tho’

    Both great plays. Marvin’s been balling as of late I wish I would have gone with him over Aldridge on the late slate :/

    Past two games this year vs the Wizards Derozen has dropped 50 burgers on DK. No way Archie can match that.
