    The concern for KAT is he could get sped up out of the game where he is shooting lots of early shot clock threes. It’s going to be a track meet and if the Wolves are chasing then it’s better for 27 shots/game Andrew Wiggins.

    I’ll still play KAT a lot though. Keep in mind he fails as much as anyone in what we think are great spots.

    Isn’t KAT the best possible center in the whole league for a pace up game?

    Lol DK put the alert for Bojan Bogdanovic on Bogdan. Maybe that will keep ownership away?

    This is what i’m doing, I think. I like a lot of players in that 8-9k tier.

    Siakam :)

    I also still really like Covington, who I was all about 2 nights ago. The pace of that game should be nuts and they’ll be plenty of peripherals for him to pick up

    Doesn’t hurt that the last PF to get a go at Charlotte put up a career game.
    Covington can be a bit passive at times though, so while I have decent exposure I won’t go over 25%.

    Here’s my helpful hint of the night…..

    Go to COURTIQ… run it for the Suns with Ayton off the floor..

    Looks like we’re discussing all these C punts but not realizing who’s usage is insane with Ayton off the floor..

    Lol my only concern with KAT is that Wiggins is a stupid chucker who is among the worst players in the league. So instead of scoring 90 DK KAT will “only” get 75 lol.

    His usage was already insane w him. Oubre’s the guy there. :)

    Siakam :)

    Beal, Kyrie, Lillard, Markkanen etc.

    Lots of different ways to go.

    Good info, thank you. We need one forum member assigned to every team for our daily can’t see that in the box scores update.

    Ugh I feel bad for the person who would have to watch every Hornets or Cavs game.

    I mean even if he’s passive he’s still likely going to have a double double at below 6K and that’s before the stocks he might add vs a very young Charlotte team who will be turnover prone.

    Pretty torn between Luka or Kyrie on DK. Luka only 200 more and DAL/NO seems like a better matchup and more fast paced. Can see BKN blowing the knicks out tonight. Thoughts?

    On the Contrary I think Hornets games will be fun to watch because every game is a track meet and they have some interesting young guys who can score. They can’t play any defense but they can score.

    I mean Kyrie literally needs to score 50 real life points to hit Luka’s ceiling lol. Luka could drop like 30-10-12 pretty easily.

    Saunders said he wants to push the pace this year and shoot more 3’s, that includes for KAT. It’s not going to be a problem because this is what Minnesota wants too.

    Usage rate leaders:

    Kyrie Irving 40.2
    Kawhi Leonard 39.3
    Dinwiddie 38.8!
    Trae Young 37.3
    Luka Doncic 36.8
    Giannis 35.7
    Curry 35.7
    Beal 35.4
    Siakam 35
    AD 34.5

    Just under this you have Tatum, Bacon, Oubre…and Wiggins lmao.

  • JSteele

    I have no concern for KAT, my concern is that he “only” puts up 55 FPTs and some of the other guys in the price range below him outdoes him.

    Only problem is letting Wiggins shoot them lmao. KAT is one of the best 3 pt shooters in the league. It’s a travesty Wiggins is allowed to touch and shoot the ball more than him.

    I think he’s a good bet for 60+. Like he’s as solid/safe as any play on this slate and with good reason.

    Yea, I love Tatum and Bacon tonight. I hope people chase Graham in this one. He had ridiculous efficiency for that stat line and was like 7/9 or something.

    Bacon was 8/21, Tatum was 8/22

    Could you imagine if they hit like 5 more shots each?

  • telestraightshooter

    For my DFS style, in-game captain-showdown has the highest rate of return

    • all I do is base it on the current box score
    • guessing is minimized
    • that shows how the matchUp, that night is affecting DFs production

    The sixers lost to the Raptors in 7 and never played the Bucks.

    For what it’s worth the Bucks might win more regular season games but they will get woodshedded in a 7 game serious against the 76ers, especially now. There are maybe 5 people in the NBA who can guard Giannis, the Sixers start 3 of them.

    Edit – lol, I can’t read. You didn’t say what I thought you did. My bad.

    Who are those three? Because two of those three were on the Sixers last year, and they were both taken to the woodshed in the games they played. The third one was taken to the woodshed 4/5 games in the playoffs.
