    Had some Powell, Boucher, FVV lineups that I thought were going to get there before I went to sleep. Blowout must have hurt me.

    Tonight looks pretty straightforward. Bucks, anyone on WAS that can shoot a three, Trae bounce back, probably additional Dame time.

    Anyone else see Giannis in the 4th q last night? Injured or exhausted? Maybe both? Didn’t look right at all. I would have to think there’s a decent chance he sits.

    No Mavs? Aren’t a bunch of them missing? I need to go back and find all of yesterday’s news that was for today

    Pretty sure Tmarohl said he fell real hard earlier in the game. Probably both. I’m sure Tmarohl can clarify

    Anybody have an issue not being able to redeem a DK ticket ever? Won a ticket for the $888 today and see it in my account but it isn’t letting me redeem

    Yeah, he did, although ABC still played after. He also suggested that Giannis would probably sit tonight. We’ll see. The line to me suggests Giannis plays, but it has also shrunk a point or two from the open depending on where you look. Even without Giannis you’d imagine the Bucks would be heavy favorites.

    Added in the missing numbers up top and update the rest.

    It is probably worth noting the spread for MIL/CLE has shrunk by 3 whole points since it opened.

  • monarch

    Without DFS and J Rich the Mavericks should be pretty poor defensively although they still play slow. Good Aaron Gordon game off of planned rest.

    Status note: Karl-Anthony Towns (wrist) will go through shootaround; to be a game-time decision Saturday.

  • schube4402

    Have not posted here in a while. Hope you all are having a good start to the year. Early take on today’s slate for dk which I’m sure will change by lock… trae bounce back after terrible game vs cha, Burke with Richardson out at 3k, rui at 4500, graham vs atl defense, Middleton lock and load if abc out. Jimmy butler vs wash d in mid 7k…I’m sure more value will open up as day goes on.

  • HungryHungryHip

    So how popular is Burke going to be on FD? I think I like paying up for PG today w so many good options because don’t want to sacrifice one PG spot for a guy who could play 24-25 min tops. Feel like they could go with Hardaway at the 2 most of the game and Iwunda could play a lot at the 3. idk

    Given Woj’s report that Sixers are expected to have 9 players available Saturday, looks like they’ll be:

    Ben Simmons
    Joel Embiid
    Danny Green
    Dwight Howard
    Tyrese Maxey
    Tony Bradley
    Isaiah Joe
    Dakota Mathias
    Paul Reed

    Will continue to update.

    This is a tricky Jimmy spot. Matchup and price are fantastic, yet this game could blowout with no Westbrook and the wiz on a back to back 3 in 4.

    Jimmy puts up big numbers in close games. Doesn’t make sense to me to play Jimmy without Beal.

    Robinson is playable on both sites, Butler is especially appealing on DK. Herro is appealing on FD. The line has moved to Miami as 7 point favorites instead of 5. The Wizards defense is trash, and the Heat could just bomb away from 3 so I’m really looking at Herro and Robinson here. I think Butler is the best SF option on FD assuming Giannis plays. If Giannis is out, I’ll move down to Middleton and just try and grab more of the Heat secondary pieces.

    I’m seeing Miami -7 at Washington, I guess both teams at -6.5 is a tippo.

    Russell Westbrook (quad) questionable Saturday. https://t.co/t026y5llcI

  • HungryHungryHip

    Beal hasn’t been as monstrous as many hope for the 2 games Westbrook has missed this year. I really like the mid range 5K guys on FD for SG so I feel tonight is either going to be really good or REALLY bad for me …

    Yeah, that was a typo. Obviously the lines are always moving, and it had changed since last time I updated. Since I fixed the typo, I just went ahead and updated all of it again.

    Yes and no.

    One game he scored 48 DK yet they blew out Minnesota and he only played 28 minutes instead of his usual 38. So it would have likely been a strong 60 🍔 in a close game.

    The other against the magic he scored 48 in the full 38, so that’s mediocre.

    Whether Westbrook plays or not, if players are going to get full minutes, Beal will need a big game.

  • Njsum1

    Might be last chance to grab Graham in the mid 5’s on DK.

    Sure, but I’m talking context of position(2 spots on FD) with the mid tier options and opportunity to pay up at other positions(PG specifically or maybe C.) Cash games or DK obviously Beal is prob a near lock if Westbrook is out but I don’t think it’s the same on FanDuel

  • OHRye

    Doing a single game lineup for Den/Phi. Seems impossible to not play Jokic, but they’re gonna blow them out right?
