    Cousins or Gasol? That is the question of the day!!! Any tidbits of wisdom are welcomed.

  • spettey

    IT3 or Wall or both on FD???? Might end up completely fading six of these games.

    Probably Gasol but only because he is cheaper. Maybe you can play both on DraftKings

  • DirkDigglerz

    I don’t want to do it but I’m fading Gasol and Waiters it’s for a dud game it’s due

  • superjon

    On my biggest streak, cashed 5 nights in a row. Probably going balanced tonight. One LU my highest player is Carmelo. Do have a few LUs with at least one stud.

    Punt of the night – Norman Powell.

    I’m with you on Waiters, his price is getting a bit high for my liking.

    I might be just getting on the Gasol wagon but I am taking him tonight. I think he destroys Portland in the post.

  • ASitar

    I don’t usually play Lebron on a 10 game slate, but they need to right this ship. He will get 60 points with 70 point upside and Kyrie will be in the 50’s.

    Noel’s name mentioned today O/U 30 times? He’ll prob go 10x.

    Probably over and it will all be meaningless because Joel is gonna play tonight. I know listed as doubtful but he got in a full workout yesterday, was originally scheduled to be back on Tuesday but they held him out more as a precaution, nationally televised game coming off his all star snub and it’s a home game which is where he really thrives. I just get the feeling he will get out there.

    On a side note I have to say watching OKC last night was some of the most boring basketball I can remember. They run very few offensive sets, don’t move the ball at all, I mean I know that Westbrook is just doing everything for them but I lost count of how many possessions he was the only person to touch the ball for them. I’d go crazy playing with him because he doesn’t move the ball at all, he just dribbles and if he has a shot he hoists if not then and only then does he pass and racks up those assists.

    Anyone play the free roll for the swag and place? I happen to win a water bottle and $18 but I don’t see me getting the money or a ticket for the water bottle… Can someone please explain? First time I placed in something like that so I don’t know how it works lol….

    Maybe not. Embid is back

  • sammygoldz

    I can’t see noel putting up big numbers especially with Joel returning. Def will be keying in on Joel tho coming back off two games rest and a big matchup against Houston on ESPN

    Isn’t Derozan back?

    what’s this “switcheroo” FD slate about?

  • lionssuck

    @yanks250125 said...

    what’s this “switcheroo” FD slate about?

    well James Harden is listed as a center, so there is that

    Looks like C’s are listed under SG and SG’s are under C’s. So you have to roster two C’s.

  • lionssuck

    @lionssuck said...

    actually it looks like all the SG’s are listed at center & all the centers are listed as SG. So basically the only difference is that you get to roster 2 centers and only 1 SG

    I agree i won’t be 100 on him but still great price for a high upside i think when he gets around the 7-7500 that is when to fade him

  • lastcallcasualty

    Some thoughts……

    I’m staying off Embid tonight for a few reasons. He’s still on a minutes restriction for the rest of the year. At 8,200 on FD his price is a bit too high. Plus, he’s pretty banged up still. Also, with Harden loving to get to the free throw line and driving in the paint so much I think Embid gets in big foul trouble tonight very early. I“m in Philly and watch the Sixers all the time and Embid loves to go for the blocked shots which I think puts him in foul trouble. Plus, at the 7-8K range, there’s lots of better options at Center.
    I do like TJ in this game and Illya, possibly COvinginton but Embid is off my list.

    Lots of great matchups tonight for mid priced PG’s. I think the only PG i may pay up for is IT or Kyrie.

    WIth all the value and great matchups I think a balanced lineup is a good idea.

    I’ll never roster A. Davis. Never ever ever! At his price still so high I can’t see how you roster him anymore.

    Also, no more Lillard for me either at that price. He’s not his normal self these days.

    i’m not a big believer in blow out potential but how can the Cle/BKN game not scare anyone with blowout if rostering Lebron at that price.
