    DK still has the $3 max 3 entry GPP. I play in it everyday. DK will have single entry GPP once the regular season starts.

    I don’t see the $3 on there today.

    Utah is a good defensive team, so I may look elsewhere with the POR guards, especially dealing with Stotts..

    Really like going ABC over Harden; similar production for $2,200 less on DK allows for better roster construction I’m finding.

    On what planet do they have similar production? This is silliness…

    Frugal sounds like your a big Mavericks fan so go ahead and hype up DWill, the slowest PG in the league. That great last game your talking about I think he had 17 points and zero assists! Yea I said zero! It’s almost impossible to be a starting PG and not get one assist. He’s basically a injury prone spot up shooter now, it’s painful to watch him try and dribble up the court. If Dallas is smart they play him 15-20 minutes at most and hope he doesn’t turn a ankle on the 3 point line or something. I used to love DWill but you and I know that come winter it’s the Barrea and Seth Curry show with a hurt DWill or a struggling DWill getting 15 painful minutes a night.

    Im not drafting Dwill in my season long, the guy is always hurt… he will have maybe 1 or 2 games in the year where he is lights out but thats so few and far between

    Funny note. I was going through the profiles of some of the touts and let’s just say, most of them are not very good. Not a whole lot of 1st place wins unless the entry was $300+. Many hadn’t had one of their top ten scores in over a year.

    Really wants to make me just become a minimal research kind of guy and just stick with my gut. Always seems to be when I’ve done my best anyway.

    Their production isn’t too similar preseason to date.

    That said, if you’re looking for 6x from Harden tonight he’d likely need a triple double to hit it, which he’s certainly capable of and came darn close against the Pelicans. Over the last 2 games, Harden’s had 1.9 and 1.4 DK points per minute played vs Giannis .96 and 1.29. The question is whether the Giannis trade off gives one enough relief to boost up another player in a great position to hit 6X+.

    Last year the Warriors played a preseason game at the Valley View Casino Center and the game had to be canceled because the floor was unsafe. This makes me worried about playing Warriors or Russell. The first sign of the court being unsafe they will all get pulled from the game. http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/13914129/poor-floor-conditions-lead-early-end-los-angeles-lakers-golden-state-warriors-preseason-game

    I wouldn’t ever play guys based on what they may suggest or imply that they will do, but if you can pick up reasons why guys are good or bad plays, that never hurts. But I agree with you, end of the day you want to trust your gut, I’d rather live with playing a guy I thought was in a good spot and not performing than playing a guy someone else touted who shi*s the bed while your guy that you faded went off.

    I am a huge Mavs fan. Even with that said, I am in no way advocating DWill as a solid play night in and night out nor suggesting playing him over some of the other PGs tonight. But in the G or Util spot DWill starting at $4.8K only needs 28.8 to hit 6X and last season he averaged 28.5 DK points per game.

    Just because someone says someones a good play doesnt mean its true. He should give some type of reasoning behind it, then you can make your own decision on if its good or not. Look at box scores, minutes, usage, all that stuff

    I was at that game, not going tonite :(

    The gulls haven’t been home in a while and opening night is saturday. No worries this time.

    And yes I was one of the guys asking for a friggin’ refund it was ridiculous!

    I do not know what happened with my profile displaying wins but my rank gets displayed. I think there was a time where people were looking at profiles to gain an edge in H2H’s. They stopped displaying mine since I was targeted??

    Anyhow, I still see my Rank go up and down the flyweight so at least its capturing that. :)

  • JGun10

    So DWill averaged 28.5 last year playing regular season minutes, he’s a year older and slower. Plus it’s preseason there’s absolutely no reason to play him more then 20 minutes at most. Do you really think he’s getting 28.8 points while playing 15-20 minutes? If he has another “great” game like last time, maybe he will get 17 points and up it to 2 assists. No way does he get 1.5 points per minute played, that’s top 5 material. You can play him in whatever spot you want, I need to see him play at least 25 pain free minutes before I ever play him again.

    Better spot tonight??? Miles Turner or J Green?

    Play both. Miles turner got 32 minutes last game and is there starting center, and Green will start and maybe play at the 5 who really knows with all the Memphis injuries going on

  • Jwhosky

    lol… i like both… safer cash play?

    This game will have the second highest pace after GS-LAL; I don’t think it’s that silly to project more opportunities for points, rebs, asts, etc. Will Harden outscore him? Probably; Dallas has been terrible in transition D where Harden thrives but will it justify paying $10,900? My opinion is no. The extra 2,200 allows me to move from scrub to mid-tier player based off of my roster construction, which I referenced also.

    I try to project what might happen, not what has happened

    Why is fanduel not letting me enter contests? Saying I can’t play in my state? I live Indiana and play every day.

    Nene sitting out of tonights game puts capela in play, he should start at center and get decent minutes.

    I hate that nickname. People are going to be asking about it all season just like last year. I get the last name is tough, but is it so hard to type Giannis?

    what happened to him being called “ the greek freak”

    Giannis Antetokounmpo from MIL Bucks name too long so they call him ABC, alphabet soup etc.

    Why not Ant or Antman

    If you are not on wifi. I have had the app glitch and prevented me from doing lineups if I was on 4g because At&t had issues and used a different isp that was theirs in Kansas and Kansas can not play.

    Terry stots said that he’ll likely play tonight’s game in terms of rotations/minutes similarly to the last preseason game
