    FD is not playing with Zion. His price has jumped up every game since he made his debut. I know he just scored 36, but I still can’t justify paying 6.3k for him.

    I reckon most people that have that mindset will just pivot to Grant for 300 less, who also has had a bump in salary, but one that is warranted based on his production.

    However, the play at PF is probably to take Randle (bigs vs CHA) and pair him with Nance (if Love sits on the B2B).

    So to win a tournament today should our mindset be that we need to average 50 points per player? This is for FD. That would be a total of 450 points.

    I think the NY/Cha game total looks low so I’ll definitely want some pieces from there. They are both in the top half of DFS points allowed on today’s slate.

    Secretly hoping the wiz bucks game stays close but doubt it. Here are my early player exposures: https://rotogrinders.com/blog-posts/the-little-engine-that-could-january-28th-2020-3281087

    Sorry that this is off topic but in my dynasty league I was offered RJ Barrett for Marvin Bagley. Thoughts? Bagley’s injuries are starting to scare me.

  • Ace15

    I just want to apologize to Eric Gordon and Danuel House. I had absolutely 0 faith in y’all and ya’ll proved me wrongggg.

    Edit: Tonight Giannis Lock. KOBE tribute game.

    I think I’ll be above the field on Zion tonight. At a time in the NBA season where most guys are dragging and the Cavs on a B2B….Zion is fresh and should destroy these guys. He wont always be at such a competitive advantage

    I think so. I scored 401 and didn’t win. Crazy.

    Interesting cause I think Zion is a core play in fd for me at pf. Like randle love and grant too but think Zion over 40 fd tonight

    Another night, another huge L. The past 2 1/2 weeks have me sick. It’s amazing how you can destroy at cash games all year long, then hit a 2 week streak questioning yourself. I’m not this bad at DFS. I’m determined to kill it today and get back on track. Gotta get the confidence back up! Maybe shortening my player pool will work.

    DK

    Player pool

    PG – Bledsoe, Lowry, Simmons, Suns Cheap guards?
    SG – Butler, Holiday, Thybulle
    SF – Middleton, Bridges
    PF – ABC, Zion, Siakem, Randle, Grant
    C – Ayton

    Definitely need to look into more injury news/situations this morning. Doubting Washington keeps it close so Milwaukee players are probably best suited for GPP at this point except Giannis?

    On a side note – Why is rotogrinders taking away big GPP scores on profile pages? Had 1 gpp win taken off from last season.

  • mr_papageorgio

    Someone in yesterday’s thread said the key to winning is to pick the best player at each position. That’s better advice than anything I’ve seen in premium so I’m going to simplify my process and try this new strategy tonight.

    Zion has been as advertised but $7200 is a lot for a guy who is capped around 25 minutes. I think I’d rather play Harris against GS for $100 more.

    Why does the Kobe tribute game have to be special for Giannis? What about Jrue Holiday who grew up in LA during Kobe’s prime? I’m not saying Holiday will do well, but so many people have Kobe connections.

  • monarch

    Zion played 27 not 25 minutes last game. He has the third highest FPPM on the slate behind only Giannis and Luka and it’s not unreasonable to think he might play as many minutes or around Giannis tonight. Those two or four extra minutes for Zion is between 3.4 and 6.8 additional DK points vs a soft opponent.

    Draymond Green and Kobe were tight. Perhaps we get a once in a month Draymond effort tonight

  • superstars92

    I don’t know much about how Zion will do, but all I know is don’t choose Brandon Ingram. He should be 0% owned.

    He went in my dummy lineup last night on FD. I’m ready to get on board if he is gonna play a min. of 27 mins. We’ll see if I still feel that after I go through everything. Really surprised how quick his mins are going up

    I’m a Bucks fan so I’m just going off by the impact that Kobe has had on Giannis. He adores him. I mean I’m on Jrue too if he has a Kobe connection and is vocal about it. Just going off what I’m seeing and hearing. Dray is a good call out on the KOBE connection, I’ll have him in some as well!

    I think I share only one player with you in your listed pool. So, one of us is going to kill it tonight and the other will bagel.

    Oh don’t choose Jrue, I was just giving an example. I think Jrue is hurt by Zion too…to the point now the Pelicans have like FIVE different players around 7k (Lonzo, Holiday, Zion, Ingram, Favors)….that’s crazy, whole team is around 7k on DK.

    Got ya! Yeah only really playing high usage players who have a Kobe narrative lol.

    Question for people who use to hand-make LU’s vs Now use optimizer or vice-versa? What has been more effective? I feel like my hand-made LU’s do perform way better than my optimized LU’s.
