    I was responding to the guy who said that no Powell was the reason doncic didn’t do well. It’s strange that you would hijack a response then accuse me of snarkiness. Ok.

    I wasn’t crazy about paying 11k (not 12k) for doncic, but did due to other value pkays. It bit me. Wish he could have duplicated his last b2b of 62 but no dice. Only min cashed. Oh well.

    365.5 on DK with Trae and Ghostface

    Marc gasol cost me about 20k+ today if he didn’t get injured and got 30fps which he was well on pace for if not more

    He’s 12k on DK. Your reply was snarky. He played 3 games without powell and played fine. His struggles on b2b have been well documented.

    When you post a question on a PUBLIC forum anyone can answer it. If you wanted only that person to reply You can send him a private message. I’ll make sure not to answer your next question.

    today was nuts…i’m scrolling through the leader boards and I swear 50 players reached value today or came close, and that’s not counting the massive chalk plays. Even Vince Carter 3.2k…23.75 fps. Yes someone played him

    edit: revenge game? lol

    I would say all 3 were bad plays. Yes, I did consider playing Exum myself but Illya out there at min price and no real high priced players to go to (yes doncic was not in a good spot then you add Porzingis coming back). Not going to go into the merits or lack thereof of playing bench players.

    Edit: Also I might add what exactly was Exum replacing? A guy you wouldnt normally start in DFS anyway. So sure Exum might go off on occasion, but it’s really the Love, Tristan, Sexton show in Cleveland. On the other hand, illya was replacing one of the best NBA players. Pretty basic thought process.

    Doncic last 2 games vs. Phx he scored 74, 67 points, Having Porzingis on the floor would not effect Luka’s projections, Luka scored over 70 pts 7 times while on the floor with Porzingis in Nov/Dec. As far as Exum goes, I mean I was looking for 24pts in a high total game, honestly thought he would get 10 assists tonight maybe 8 pts and run into a few rebounds. Obviously the plays didn’t work out tonight so I was wrong but lets face it Luck trumps Smart plays most of the time.

    Njsum, you are a well respected poster. I’m not looking to scrap with you.

    I merely asked a specific poster why he thought Powell being absent had anything to do with doncic’s struggles in this game.

    The fact that doncic hasn’t done great in some back to backs is fine to share. That may well have contributed to his poor performance today. It certainly hurts many players.

    I really didn’t want to go with doncic but he fit certain lineups. I’m frustrated he ended up not coming through. When a silly explanation like Powell being out was offered as proof not to play doncic, I took the bait and responded

    Again, not looking to square off over all explanations doncic. My apologies for being frustrated.

    All good man, I’ve been there…(too often lately 😭). My bad as well. Honestly, he wasn’t a terrible play…imo, that’s why I had him a couple of lineups. it’s just that if he doesn’t do well in a game that happens to be a back to back, I’ll cite that as the preeminent reason. Not that he can’t do well on b2b, he’s just risky.

    He’s also not a great play on FD, although FD always entices us with a good price as compared with DK. He doesn’t get many blocks and steals, which are worth more on FD and they don’t give the double double and triple double bonus like DK.

    Good luck tomorrow. 🍀🏀🔥

    The reason why we are all struggling to cash when we score over 350 points is because of the fricken fast paced games that is not featuring any defense being played. Look at that score for the Bucks/Wizards game! That was the main offender. I had four Bucks in my lineup but had Trae Young kill me and I picked Kelly Oubre over chalk Jaylen Brown. I scored 357.6 to barely cash in the Pick N Roll GPP https://www.fanduel.com/games/43075/contests/43075-234248102/entries/1974187112/scoring

    After a last minute stat correction, I lost two cash games to these annoying 50/50 train https://www.fanduel.com/games/43075/contests/43075-234252701/entries/1973428546/scoring?entry=1973324731

    Overall, I spent $10 and won $14.90. I seriously wish teams would start playing defense but that will never happen again. Thats the main root of the cause for these high scores. Also, still think the death of Kobe Bryant caused for the high scoring games from Middleton, Beal and Eric Gordon from the previous night. I have no clue why Doncic busted and glad to have faded that. Wonder if the team is struggling because they need an actual Center who can play solid basketball.

    Those high priced PG all flopped. Pretty rare for Simmons and donicic to do this bad on same nite

    Randle and Sabonis have nice matchups Wednesday

    I played him tonight. I figured he’d be pretty low owned, playing solid, getting min, and playing the pelicans.

    that’s where my head is at also. i am much quicker to fade expensive chalk as opposed to punt chalk.

    $3,300 for him in this spot is great value. gonna be very hard to bust in my opinion. i’ll gladly take 25-30 fantasy points

    It truly takes talent 2 play (1) LINEUP in the DRAFT KINGS MINI-MAX $0.50 GPP —- min. cash with 136.5 pts from BLEDSOE and MIDDLETEON and final LU score was 335.25…least it cashed..UNLIKE the SINGLE ENTRY ($1)

    If you believe luck outweighs skill in dfs, why do you play?

  • mbunner23

    Cashed easily even with Exum….

    Thank you Brad Beal.

    I thought the spread went down to -12 when Giannis was announced as out. He wasn’t at the arena by the way.

    it went from 16 to 11

    I bet Wizards +16 before the move and lost
