    DK should make everyone’s salary end with 824 today.

  • superjon

    LaVine getting pretty expensive, but he’s playing great and has a nice match up.

    Might pair him with Luka who we get a little discount on FD.

    Damn. Still doesn’t feel real, Kobe…Will always remember my Kobe 5 De La Sols best pair of hooping shoes ever. RIP to Mamba and all the victims. .

    Sans Rockets Harden & RwB/ Paul over last 2 years:

    • Gordon is 50 dK per 36
  • johnnyjakes

    I don’t get why they would both sit, especially in light of what just happened. I expect superstars to go off tonight.

    Well Harden is hurt and Westbrook doesn’t play in BTBs.

    I wish my employer would not work me in BTB’s. I would love to get paid for 4 day work weeks.

    Professional athletes…especially NBA players put in far more hours than we do and I generally work 60 hours a week.

    Gordon will be like 10% owned imo. No one is going to play him since he’s washed up.

    Wow, just saw his price on DK.

    He’s only 4,400 on FD. Practically a free square if both Harden and RWB are out.

    Think he will be about 33%. May put up over 20 shots tonight . People will play him though I mostly won’t, on dk that is

  • monarch

    Just play Clemons for 3k. He will also get up 20 shots and against Jordan Clarkson and the Jazz second unit

    Yes. Kobe was a love to hate guy for me as a Mav fan as he’d always destroy us and yet I admit I shed some tears yesterday. He was so young and for one of his daughters to die as well, heartbreaking. I’m a little shocked they actually played all the games yesterday. If it’s hitting me this hard I can not imagine how hard it’s hitting the players and coaches.

  • siddom

    I said this and ill say it again; Chris Clemons SZN!

  • frugal

    Usage points to Gordon and Capella destroying tonight, but matchup suggests Clemons and Hartenstein play extended minutes in a blowout.

    Haha. Good point. I promise I’ll be more productive and efficient if I get every other day off.

    RIP KOBE :(

    Yea on DK at 6.9k, I don’t think many optimizers will love him so that already means he’ll get a massive reduction in perceived ownership (since optimizers use FPPM, and price as two factors). Some who aren’t using an optimizer might take him, but logic will tell you that’s a really high price at 6.9k so that should cut down more into ownership. That’s where I’m getting about the 10 percent number owned on DK from my estimation. He might be like 15 percent at best, but my range is around 10-15 ish. Austin Rivers though, at 3.6k, will be massive chalk.

    Clint Capela will probably be sub 10% owned or around 10% owned too. DK really messed up here. I have no idea why they decided to make him 8.5k. He literally should be 7k, lower than what he was before. He sees a reduction without Harden and Westbrook since all he does on offense is catch lobs.

    Capela gets absolutely no benefit playing without Harden and Westbrook. He gets hurt if anything.

    Yeah, I’ll be heavy on Clemons. I’m targeting Lavine and Luka too in a Kobe tribute game.

    Projected lineup has only played .9 minutes together, but running HOU sans Harden/Westbrook in CourtIQ shows a 1.9% usage boost to 18.3% and .72 FPPM boost to 1.94 for Capela.

    mj played 82 games just about every year when he wasn’t hurt. guys are just pampered these days. i know it’s been rehashed many times in here but, still feel bad for someone who buys tickets months in advance for their kid to see bron or rwb or whoever then they don’t get to.

    That’s just noise. I’m fairly certain Capela won’t benefit without Harden and Westbrook.

    How many mins is in the sample size of Capela without both Harden/Westbrook but with Eric Gordon? I’m going to assume those mins were probably garbage time mins in which Capela stayed in just because D’Antoni wanted to feed him the ball to “develop” him and don’t apply to a full game.
