    Glass chalk day.

    Jrue is the GPP pivot lock, IMO. I don’t think this is an apples to apples comparison, but just take a look at how Beal chalk day ended up yesterday.

    What do you guys think a realistic projection for AD is? 55-60? Sounds about right to me. Do we think any other player on the slate (FD early only for me) can get there as a pivot off his massive ownership?

    CP3 at 2k less. Griffin at 3k less. Harden & ABC but those two are right around AD price as well. And I’m assuming the “blow out” potential will brought up vs PHX for the HOU players, right?

    Also a few mid range options who could get there on a good night. (Booker, Jrue, DJ, Lou)

    Any thoughts fellas? Or everyone just jamming in AD and figuring the rest out?

    I’m trying to find a way off AD, on FD too. Nothing I’m really happy with yet…

    I’d have an easier time on DK, I like a lot of SG’s

    I doubt he’ll be higher than that. I mean there are other players more than capable of scoring on the team. And we can just go back to last year when Boogie wasn’t there to check on his pricing history/performance. I mean he isn’t literally going to just absorb all of the ftpts Cousins would’ve gotten, which is that most people seem to think. He’s not gonna throw up 70-80 burgers night in night out. Yeah, he does a usage boost, naturally but I think we should be realistic in our expectations for him nightly is all I meant.

    I’m sure we can expect a floor of about 40 nightly is what I’m guessing. Average will probably be 50-60. With the occasional 70+ nights

    I feel you. I hope your right. I dont want him to be 12.5. For me though, when I look at ADs name, I think 70-80. I cant do that with other guys. Heres how Im going to think about AD from now on, if hes playing a front court with someone that can match up, ill stay away…. if not, ill play him. If its Gobert, Im definitely playing him. I cant wait to see Utah on a slate again.

    DK workers must not be working this weekend. Clearly, the NOP players were not priced up when they should be (aside from Miller and Holiday a bit). Might be last time you see this.

    they haven’t been working all season.. soft as tissue pricing

    beal chalk hurt though, no? as in he wasn’t that good.

    He was the first guy I locked into my LU over AD. I’m personally fading AD (FD early only slate). If he throws up 80, we’ll be in bad shape haha. Depending on how the other players on the slate perform. But If he puts up only 50, that’s not gonna kill me

    anyone like Milos Teodosic for the early?

    I have him in one of my 2 early FD I made so far. Price down and helps me get in Harden and ABC and Griffin. Not paying up for Paul or Bledsoe there.

    I’m playing Lauri, they’ll beed his length I think to match up with him. Not saying he’ll stop him but Lauri could be a decent, most likely low owned mid range option

    you’re fading AD @youtingly?

    You gotta wait I think. One of the reasons I’m not playing.

    So keep in mind Clippers go Blake/DJ, so that’s fairly big. Darius Miller is fairly small, so my guess is he doesn’t start. But again, I don’t know so you have to wait for the lineups to announce.

    The other 4: Rondo, Holiday, Moore, and AD should be set to start and all see a usage boost without Cousins, whos’ a usage monster.

    I love skepticisim that makes sense. DK even has Dante the projected PF. In the same token, if DJ gets into foul trouble…Also who backs up Brow at Center? Asik? Can Cunningham play center?

    He can stub his toe, or slip and fall in the 2nd and sit the rest of the game, always an option with AD

    Yea I’ve played Miller for last 3 games under 4K price and I think 4500 on DK is about right with minutes and a bump now I’d say.

    He’s still too cheap…I’m not saying he’s going to have a big game today, as I haven’t looked into yet, yet his price is too cheap. Miller spent a lot of time on the court with Cousins..with cousins his price should have been around 4k..IMO, without Cousins, it should maybe be around 5k to 5.5k. So the usage bump should be big. However, we’ll have too see if no Cousins drawing double teams, makes it harder or easier on Miller.

    Glass at the 5 surrounded by Griffin and Jordan with no help from Boogie, I can see it now.

    But with Beal, people were warning everyone that he doesn’t always do great with Wall out since he’s a pure shooter, and we had the data to back it up.

    It’s different now, because Cousins hasn’t missed any games this season. Obviously AD gets a nice bump with Cousins off the floor, so it’s a safe assumption to think the same would hold true with Cousins completely out. AD fills the stat sheet a lot more than Beal does.

    I’m not playing the early, but if I was I would definitely lock in Jrue. Then just go like 50% AD only to account for possible injury.

    LOL. That’s a great gif. By the way is it pronounced gif or gif?

    Early slate, Ive made a few lineups and can’t seem to fade AD. Also, Thon Maker has made it into a couple 😳

    You have to add one without him with his history of injuries. *

    Only made 2 lus for early on FD. Been playing there mostly except for pick ems lately since I’m hot there and like that starting 5. Like someone said, too bad there aren’t many early gpps as options. Since everyone will flock to AD, I’ll play the theory angle and hope AD doesn’t burn me. If Harden and ABC can better him I’m ahead of the field. If AD gets 75, I’m in trouble.

    If I make more entries for early, I will likely have a piece of him.

    Looking at DK, they already opened another $4. It’s like these sites have no idea of the interest of their product. No NFL today and very little available on FD right now. Pathetic.
