    Lotta ways to go at captain tonight. Last game was pretty easy it was either Bron or AD, yet I can see a case for a number of guys tonight. Gonna be a little trickier.

  • SteeloCity

    You think so? I like AD and LeBron again at the top two spots on FD again.

    If (and it’s a big if) Miami can keep this one close without Dragic and Bam, Jimmy Butler could be the top Pt/$ player with the increased usage.

    You could probably make a case for Herro who may start and be forced into heavy minutes. Both of these guys can fill up the stat sheet like LeBron/AD.

    Tons of value available could make the captain spot too. Kelly O should get a ton of run here.

    I only play these showdowns on DK.

    I can see a Kelly O, Nunn, or butler captain In addition to bron and AD. Depends what these guys score. And what the rotations are.

    NUNN-Mania again!

  • truegrinder

    So hard to trust Nunn. Ughhh. There goes my Herro is going to have to go nuts tonight. Hard not to play the King at cap in my opinion

    No it’s not, do the math. He’s actually one of the worst captains tonight.

    Just give guys projections and start messing around with captain. I think the optimal captain may be butler.

    If you think Kendrick Nunn will get over 30 DK, he’d be the optimal captain.

  • Who’s ready for this!

    In a Heat keep the game close script you almost have to play Butler and Herro. And, I’d agree that you can make a strong case for Butler being the top pt/$ guy if you believe the Heat can keep this game close… or even win.

    i am thinking about Herro at the cap spot too. But isnt tonight with the injuries going to be easy to put King or AD or But at the Captain?

  • truegrinder

    guys that # 9.5 is present again too….. Maybe its a heat build tonight? Herro is my guy im leaning heavy on… Thoughts?

    You have to sacrifice butler to play the king at captain. You can get him in with AD, but then your playing Sol hill and Markeiff

    Butler is the best captain..if he gets 45 DK, or Nunn with 30, Herro would need around 40 to make a good captain

    I think Kelly O makes a nice captain. I just made a build that I really like, although you sacrifice Butler, you don’t have to fish too much

    You can easily play Lebron, ad, and butler if Kelly o is the captain. Only problem with Kelly O captain is that you have too many options for your last guy. I count 6 plays with similar projections. Unless you go rondo over Nunn then you have like 3

  • monarch

    Kelly Olynk can really derail a lineup tonight, especially at CPT. Ill play a few responsibly but those are some real hail mary lineups.

    I also feel that way about Tyler Herro to an extent.

    Butler or nunn make the best captain…imo

    If we think Nunn will get big minutes and 30 DK points. If we’re not certain about Nunn, Captain Buckets gives me the highest projected Lineup.

  • monarch

    I agree that those are excellent captain selections. I also like AD at CPT.

    Is anyone predicting a scenario where 1 of Butler, James, AD, is not in the winning line up?

    Seems hard to believe it won’t happen. It’d have to be a total annihilation to the point where, Butler doesn’t even get past 30, or Laker role players show out and have a huge role in the decimation, and one of AD or James settles around 35-40, right?

    Too much value on the lower end. Nunn and down really is full of too many guys who should score 20+ to think those 3 won’t make the optimal.

    I’m trying to like AD, yet the projections fall short. Can’t find an AD lineup going in that projects highly.

    Of course it can happen, like if crowder or rondo have a monster game.

    No, I make like 1 to 5 lineups for these things, so I don’t account for less likely scenarios.

    If I was putting in 150, I’d certainly have some of those lineups

    I’m really just trying to cash these things…not Just min, yet cash.

    Last time I had 3 lineups, 1 went 5x, 1 4x and 2x.

    I’d happily take those results again

  • bazerko

    I say fading one of those three is the way to go if you aren’t trying to split the grand prize with anyone. The odds are slim that all three won’t be in the winning lineup, but there have been instances in these playoff showdown slates where one of: Jimmy, AD and Lebron weren’t in the winning line ups. Out of the three I would lock AD into a lineup, while fading Lebron since I assume he would be higher owned than Jimmy Butler.

    Yeah it would be nice to finally win one outright. I just keep tying for 1st every slate, it’s starting to get annoying 😂

    I like the herro captain lineups…they project well if you think herro gets 40dk. I know I said that before, yet I’ve been thinking more about it.

    If he doesn’t get 40dk the lineups are kind of dead though

    Edit…anyone think the Lakers might start markeiff tonight with Bam out?

  • Felixxberg

    I know nothing about NBA, but I do know some things about SD, and if there’s something I have learned while playing NFL SD (also NHL SD, but that’s another animal), it’s that you need to leave a lot on the table to not split with 100 other people. It’s kind of easy to do it tonight because of the decent value players. Nunn captain opens up a lot of possibilities. At the end of the day you need to be perfect anyway, but I’d rather play to win alone (or a few ties) than to split with 100 people.

  • Gonna be interested to see who spo goes with to start the game with no bam specifically. Assuming lakers start dwight again, alot of different possibilities.
