    Morrow

    I did this, switched out Ellington for morrow, then that leaves me with Bogdonovic. Ugh. The price I pay for RWB.

    Drummond for Center if you can afford him

    Why?

  • mellofellowsu

    @nta87 said...

    Why?

    Averaged approx 44 fps in 4 games vs Orlando last year. That’s pretty solid.

    Also there’s not that great of a gap in salary on FD to justify playing Lopez over him. Drummond’s got the higher ceiling, no doubt about it.

    I think Lopez is as capable as Drummond of going 50+ fps tonight at a much lower price.

  • Jstri

    If it were a tougher matchup I’d definitely still consider fading Westbrook in some lineups. But going against the Kings who play virtually no defense Its hard not to put him in every lineup

    Was planning to go balanced but Westbrook is an auto play now. What cheap guys are out there

    Again, that’s site-dependent. Lopez is at $8.7k on FD, Drummond at $9.3k. That’s not enough given that Lopez could easily drop a 35.

    5 players in one LU from the SAC OKC game….is that too much!?

    I’m certainly not going to fade Westbrook completely in GPPs, but it may be smart to look at other options. Earlier in the year, he was putting up some big numbers, and was nowhere near necessary for GPPs. With the lack of options to spend salary on today though, and the emerging value, he certainly may end up being in more lineups than not for me.

    “earlier in the year” when durant was out, westy costed 1k-2k more

    McCallum called up from d-league. Any thoughts on how much that might drop patty’s value?

    I think I went with Mills earlier in the season when TP was out and McCallum ended up starting and getting more minutes. So that may be something to watch out for.

    I’m just praying that Conley is a late scratch, I’ve got Chalmers in and I figure he will have a lower ownership %age than Larkin, Mills, and Livingston and a higher ceiling as well.

    Lopez may spend some time away from the basket guarding Olynyk and lose a few boards. On FD, I think there are better C. I play mostly gpp on fd and would rather spend the $600 more for Drummond or move down to KAT or even Whiteside.

    Agreed. Lopez is at the low, low price of $7500 on DK while Drummond is $9200. Big difference.

    I agree. I think I’m using a combo Noel, a little Ibaka in case he gets some of Durant’s looks, Thad and Green. The value at pg, sg, and sf is fine with me.

    Isiah or klay gpp

    Isiah Thomas was a great legend but you should go with Payton today playing in a high pace game vs Kings. Isaiah today though with Bradley out and Smart limited mins

  • xdan3220

    Haven’t seen any mention of Harden yet on here, which I understand considering they are playing Utah. That said, is he really a complete fade? Some lines Utah has given up in the last few games:

    McCollum: 32-7-6
    Wiggins: 17-6-4 Rubio 10-17
    Reddick 25-2-2 CP3 19-11-2

    If Favors isn’t playing Harden seems like a stud that is going to go significantly underowned. Utah D efficiency is very middle of the pack, seems like an interesting guy to go with tonight on a weird SG night.

    Noel worries me, last game Brown started to play him with Okafor again and that really limits Noel’s upside.

    Hell no… I did a couple LU with 7 (hoping for the double/triple OT obviously).
