    So now we can start some regular season discussion now that the contests are up.

    Was going to skip opening night and wait for the big Wednesday slate but who am I kidding, I just can’t wait.

    Early thoughts, I see Mirotic is now classified as a SF (PF last season). That’s encouraging as that’s the most troubling position to find value IMO.

    In a 3 game slate at least one stack is necessary. I’m probably going with Mirotic and Butler.

    Wednesday games are up on FD

    Also, it would be a wise idea to at least load up on some swat LU’s. That thing would fill up in the early a.m last year.

    FYI

    Forgetting about Mo Speights and James Michael-McAdoo. Ezeli is not a lock for 20 minutes even if Bogut is out.

    Ezeli only needs about 8 mins on the floor to hit value lol. Ever seen him play?

    what is everyone anticipating tonight’s 50/50 cashing threshold to be with only 3 games?

    DK- 260ish

    roughly 270 on FD and 250 on DK to cash 50/50s. However, that fluctuates on a nightly basis based off how chalk plays pan out. I’ve cashed some nights with 220 on FD and not cashed others with 290+. Worry about the process to get the best plays, not just the outcomes!

  • phredlocks

    Off topic sorry. I need 3 for my weekly pts league. Ellis, Oladipo, Gordon, DWill or McCallum. (Each have 3 game slate)

  • JJourneay33

    OJ Mayo, Jabari Parker, and Giannis Antetokounmpo will all not play tomorrow night.

    While we are being off topic…

    WOOO

    If it’s Gordon Hayward or Eric Gordon, then I like him, Dipo, McCallum…If it’s Aaron Gordon, then I like Ellis, Dipo, McCallum

    I am inclined to agree. This information does alter my overall perception of Lebrons performance tonight.

    what’s wrong with Giannis? source?

  • roto718

    NVM I see he’s suspended

  • Dorr185

    Yeah, I was all about fading LeBron until I found out POTUS was coming. No way LeBron doesn’t put on a show for Obama. Not going all in, but the development merits at least one LeBron lineup.

  • teezee

    If you were to be entering just one lineup into competitions tonight, would you enter it into a multi-entry or a single entry tournament? and why?

  • JJourneay33

    @roto718 said...

    Suspended for Game 1 because of flagrant foul in playoffs. All of twitter if you search his name.

    If you think it’s contrarian put it in multi entry. If you think it’s just a safer, cash game type LU than go single entry.

    I would suggest entering it in a single entry double up if you’re just starting out. Highest chance to win and play tomorrow on the house.

    Do you guys think that Curry is considerably a better option than Klay? For some reason I’m starting to get the feeling that Curry isn’t necessarily the undisputed top dog in Golden State anymore, kind of like the Westbrook and Durant scenario, but maybe not to that extent.

  • millerto

    Anybody worried about Bazemore being too overexposed tonight? I feel like everybody is on him and Nate. Or is that just for the fringe DFS degenerates and he’ll still be

  • havs99

    Higher upside horford/Barnes/butler of Teague/Drummond/igoudala? DK gpp

    Wonder if this gives the Bulls reason to unleash D Rose a little more than expected?

    I’m not sure what’s given you that perception. Klay will have his nights, but Curry will be a top 5 fantasy player all year.

    Klay relies primarily on scoring. Curry not only can light it up for 40pts but can also combine that with 10assists, 4 steals, and some rebounds. Klay’s game is not nearly as well rounded as Curry.

    It’s a 3 game slate not much option out there for minimum price

    This is a bubble. Bazemore will not be over 10% owned i do not think. Could be way off, but i do not think the average person just starting NBA because they are bored waiting for NFL will know who Bazemore is
