    Just thought I’d say a word on Thaddeus Young. I know he’s on a new team, and he’s never been a sexy pick, but for 5,200 on FD, I remember him breaking a few slates last season.

    Just about done with 50ish FD lineups, do not generally play more than 1-5 lineups but I could not resist on this first big slate.

    So much Cedi OsmanCAVS roster looks awful and someone has to score. $4,800 seems too cheap. Anyone have any strong feelings on Osman one way or another?

    Got a lineup with Herro and Barrea.
    Felt like a day to be cute just once with a lineup.

    Osman is probably going to be the 4th option among starters, not a lot of interest from me with Love in.

    FD SF is such trash. It’s Winslow/Issac/Barton or bust for me.

  • monarch

    Thoughts on Morant? 31 percent usage rate in the preseason but priced up 6600 and the matchup isn’t great

  • jessedio

    Dear god I have the morris twins in multiple lineups on FD.

    Oubre is a solid option

    Another “Data Driven DFS” blog post up. I mainly explored the pricing of players relative to a base projection we can give with limited information so early on… couple players stood out:

    I’m with Panda on the Porzingus take. I can’t see him in any of my lineups except for maybe the 25 center that I max enter with an optimizer. He will not be in any of my hand picked lineups. FD SF, I find myself all over Crowder.

    Woops, forgot about him yeah those are my 4 im rolling with.

  • JTAx33

    I just hate paying 7.7k for Fox; he’s struggled with consistency and you’re looking for 50 in GPP at that price

    I’m playing 60 on FD, and have zero Cavs.

    I think the Magic have a pretty good D, and it’s hard for me to see anyone from Cleveland having enough of a ceiling game to make them viable on an 11 game slate.

  • Csquared1987

    Anybody like Ed Davis tonight on FD?

    Pretty funny how the FD player photos are changing so much right now. Oubre went back to his Washington photo and Randle appears to have aged 10 years in the last 10 minutes

    I can’t wait until the games end to hear how we should have gone 100% on THJ

    what about Oubre or even some Prince?

    was supposed to quote guy complaining about FD SF

    Any Blazers fans with insight into how many minutes Whiteside will get tonight? I don’t like his $7K price on DK but he could be a steal at only $18 on Yahoo, which would be equal to $4,500 on DK based on percentage of salary cap used.

    I figure they’ll need his size against Jokic. But Spoelstra seemed reluctant to ever give him more than 24 minutes or so over the past couple of seasons with only some rare exceptions. I know they didn’t always see eye to eye. So was it just a function of them not getting along, or is he not capable of handling 30+ minutes a night anymore? When he was regularly logging 30+ minutes a few seasons back, he smashed a few times against Jokic and was consistently above 30 fpts, which I’d gladly take at $18.

    If I knew he was getting 30+ minutes tonight, he’d be a lock for me on Yahoo. This is how he has performed when playing 30 or more minutes the past couple of seasons:

    Sorry if he has already been discussed at length. It’s already 3 PM Central time, and I’ve only had time to skim through a few pages of today’s thread.

    DK cash…KAT/LMA or Embiid/Fox

  • monarch

    Probably going to want some Kyrie tonight. Not too many Tatums or Horfords on the Nets right now to hold Kyrie down. There is a scenario where he is the high scorer
