    I changed my mind on trying to change your minds. Fade RWB. He’s terrible. He may have 14 assists, 1 board and 4 points. Total waste of salary on such a huge slate. Please fade him. You are a fool if you play him.

    Because hes the only threat… they will just trap him everytime he has the ball

    You mean like what NBA teams did to Russ last year as OKCs only threat? Oh wait.

  • gillio

    Also Hernangomez could be a great play tonight. Could be an easy double double with a couple blocks for only 5k

  • Ganderson

    lol dont compare russ to the zinger please.

    You clearly missed the point of what I said.

    Maybe if I said Devin Booker for the Suns when Bledsoe is out last year you would get my point. How did Booker do those games?

    I see what you did there……

  • futoo

    Nothing to see here. Fade RWB.

    On a serious note, why are so many smarty pants guys all over Nance tonight? What am I missing?

    I briefly mentioned this Tuesday night and then watched 20 pages of talk about fading Lebron and Harden. How’d that work out for everyone? You can only lead a horse to water.

    Preach bill, preach!

    there was some speculation he might start, but other than that i dont get it.

  • nyknick

    highest raw points (pick 2): hardaway, lonzo, holiday, bev, clarkson, lou will?

  • RogueGrinder

    Paul George already said Melo wants this game. Yall overthinking this. I really hate small slates though…

    I think news from the Lakers https://twitter.com/Lakers/status/920773178967834624

    “The rotation will be shorter and minutes longer”

    Thanks. I couldn’t even pay attention to the real words Luke was saying. His voice is so mesmerizing.

  • gillio

    Robin Lopez could be in store for a HUGE game tonight

  • TheRyanFlaherty

    Crap. I actually have to put some thought into today. Yesterday took about 5 minutes to come up with a 370 pt lu on FD because of the ridiculous prices.
    Bad teams, bad players and new players whom your not fully sure how they’ll be utilized, combined with more accurate prices, makes this puzzle far more complicated than the first two nights.

    @gillio said...

    Why is nobody talking Porzingis? He’s the guy now that Melo is gone. Usage should be sky high. Low owned, high upside play

    Let him go overlooked 😎

    Early thoughts on slate (note: all prices via DK):

    - Interesting to see people talk about fading Westbrook. He’s $11,000 on DK. Wasn’t this dude at one point last season just outside $14,000? All I remember was that he was reaching value pretty frequently even at those prices. Westbrook is facing a bad Knicks defense in a projected uptempo game where he’s facing a stable of PGs including R. Sessions, J.Jack, R.Baker and F. Ntilinika. I’m not sure how this new roster affects his rebounding outlook, but he’s still going to score points and record assists.

    - Not buying the Markkanen hype. He’s a $5,600 (DK pricing) rookie playing in his first game against a Raptors team that tends to slow the game down and has a pretty decent defense. He’s not a great rebounder or rim protector. May need 20 real life points to exceed an average 5x return. As a whole, most of the Bulls appear as though they’ve had their prices jacked up. Feels like a trap. Maybe a possible contrarian tactic: play Markkanen’s counterpart, Serge Ibaka, for $200 cheaper (DK pricing)?

    - Lakers were a fast paced, horrible defense team that was one of the favorites to target in DFS last season. Lonzo Ball & Brook Lopez probably don’t change that. Should definitely be some value available in Clippers backcourt, assuming you can figure out how those rotations go.

    - Clippers are probably the best team to target followed by the Thunder and then the Bulls frontcourt.

  • Ganderson

    Lol the people saying to fade Russ are actually taking him… If you dont take him, how else would you make up for his 40-60 points?

  • Whacko

    @gillio said...

    Roberson-Kanter or Robin Lopez-Beasley

    Can you be more specific? What site? is this a more cash or GPP Roster you want…

  • Ganderson

    Nwaba sleeper play of the night…..

  • Ndepompei

    Beverly or Teodosic?
