    Miles if Lowry sits.

    Delon too.

    Pick one or the other.

  • superjon

    Got a mix of Napier and Wright.

    Think of Lowry is announced in before lock I’ll pivot from wright to Johnson

  • superjon

    DeRozan is a lock?

    1. Massive usage bump if Lowry sits.
    2. Trending hot right now.
    3. Averaging 47 FD points/gm in his last 5 vs the Heat. Could have possibly been higher, but shot 30% in one of the games. Lowry missed 2 out of the 5 games.
    4. Most likely to guard him I suspect would be Ellington, Johnson, or Richardson. DeRozan has a size advantage on all 3 of them.

    Any reasons to fade?

    Only reason I can think of is he is coming off a B2B OT game

    We’re grabbing at straws here, yet the only reason I can think of is the back to back, yet it’s not a good enough reason for me to fade Derozan if Lowry sits. DK even reduced his price too.

    Edit: Still don’t think he’s a fade yet his back to back numbers aren’t great. He had one good game this year off a back to back yet only played 29 minutes the night before, not 42. I might not go 100% Derozan just in case there’s something to it.

    I think another reason to pay up for him is Roberson might be back. That makes McCollum less appealing even though Dame isn’t playing tonight.

    Bro shout out for putting me on Gordon last night, really helped out, of course scores were sky high so…

    Dallas vs ORL should be in a good spot. Loving some DSJ today.

    Roberson is officially out for tonight

    No doubt, glad he did what he was supposed to 😁

    If you like DSJ go with him, though I think I’d rather have Wes or Barnes.

    That ELF “defense” is hard to resist.

    Barnes is pretty priced up (Said the same about Gordon yesterday lol). Seems good for cash, but can he hit 6x plus at 7K? And Wes always never fails to disappoint when he’s on my roster.

    Does anyone think Dwayne Casey will be reminded that JVal is pretty good at basketball or will he think the big man is wiped out after playing 26/27 minutes yesterday?

    I’m liking a Dallas/Orlando stack myself

    Barnes starts out every single game looking like he’s going to smash and then just fizzles out.

    Can’t fade Westy today. Lots of value to for him and DDR in your line up.

    Put him with the afore mentioned JoVal on the 1st quarter All Stars team. When Nance Jr was starting on the Lakers he was on that team as well.

    Schroeder can run point on that team.

    Same here so far

  • upgradetoquestionable

    Haven’t roster this guy all year and the past few years every time I did he was a bit chalky and pooped himself. But on this 4 gamer, I’m looking at Dwight Powell for some value. Feel like Dal is gonna need him in there some. Feel free to ridicule…and/or talk me onto some other sub 4K forward.

    I was about to say “yeah”

    then realized he will probably take 30+ shots in a game where Lowry sits.

    Made a lineup at the last minute in under 10 mins and I hit 291 fp lol.
