    Drop down to Miles Plumlee. Gonna get the mins worst thing to happen is you drop his near min price

    I don’t see Plumlee being better than TT but I’ve been wrong before

    Wow great stats here, greatly appreciate the info

    Yeah, you would think he would have been in the best line up more often. I’m not sure how useful it is, because every slate is different and there’s so much more you can take into account as far as who else was on the slate. Onwership. It’s possible that a game or two turned into blowouts and Harden didn’t get full run keeping him short of his ceiling. It really all may be useless. Either way I suppose it proves that the idea that Harden is a must is not true in GPP’s.

    I’m fading Harden and hope he just gets like 55-60 fantasy points. Don’t like any of the value on the slate.

  • chronoxiong

    Just noticed that Steven Adams has been grabbing a ton of boards so far this season. And then I realize that he gets to grab them because that stat hog Westbrook isn’t out there. About time.

    DEF is nonexistent tonight

    That’ll be news to Klay, KD and Draymond…are you sure they got the memo?

  • monarch

    Been waiting for someone to mention Adams. He has by far his best matchup to date…just find the salary to go from TT to Adams. He could be the highest scoring center.

    Ran this query on court iq and for the past two seasons, Harden averages a ridiculous 1.86 Dk Pts per minute. I don’t know if I can fade. The only thing that gives me pause is that he’s struggled vs Clippers these past few years so maybe Doc Rivers knows his weaknesses?

    I agree with the Adams talk. I have him locked and loaded on FD. He plays much better at home.

    He is grabbing them because Schroeder and George have been bricking a lot of shots, in addition to RWB not being in there.

    So the Harden thing, sorry I got sidetracked if anyone was actually waiting…From what I could gather Paul missed 24 games last year. 4 games I couldn’t find anything in resultsDB, because either it wasn’t loading or Harden wasn’t on he main slate. So we’re down to 20 Paul-less Harden games. He was in the “best” not “optimal” DK line up 4 times out of the 20. Several of the games though were on big slates with 9+ games where a 60-65 FP Harden performance might not be enough.

    If we break it down to Paul-less Harden starts on slates with 7 games or less it was 2 for 8. The same %. In a 5 game slate like tonight it was actually down to only 1 in 6 times.

    Of course there’s still 4 unaccounted for games and there was some nights were Harden wasn’t in the winning line up, because he was outscored a bit by Westbrook. There was a game where Harden went over 80 and one where he went over 100.

    So, basically it’s more likely than not that Harden isn’t in the best GPP line up tonight IF Paul does indeed end up being out based on last years results. It’s obviously not that simple though. If you think Harden is a must, he might be, if you think the play is a fade there’s certainly proof it could work.

    The 80 point games were against Cleveland and Memphis and the 100 point game was against Orlando.. those were some of the worst defenses in the league last year.

    Agreed about Adams, got him too. He’s played really well against the Kings even with Westbrook. I think most will pay up for Jokic tonight after his monster triple double.

    Yeah, and actually my fault, tonight is 4 games not 5. I can’t find anything with 4 games.

    Gary harris projected for 45% wow

    Harden has crazy per minute numbers but im not liking any cheap plays really except bazemore and tucker..still feel like balanced is the way to go..unless harden drops 70+

  • Tnjkoch221

    Wish they’d announce something on CP3 soon.

  • jessedio

    wtf. Damn you Westbrook

  • TeamTarek

    Starting Sunday vs SAC (knee surgery)
    He has no minutes restriction

    wb playin lol

  • Monty1507

    I’m glad he is playing itll take more people to choose him instead of the players I want. 12,500 I dont think he hits value in first game back even without the mins restriction

  • kbsktbll88

    Westbrook playing is not surprising… no minutes restriction though? wtf lol

  • mbunner23

    I usually hate balanced but it seems like that’s the way to go tonight.

  • SenderGreen

    Hmmmmm Harden isn’t in core plays?!
