    going with a Halloween themed stack in one lineup. casspi (casper) and willy cauley stein. They are a stretch but all I could come up with. lmk if yall have any others

    My DK lineup for cash games tonight…seems like a lot of mid-priced guys this slate.

    Lawson
    DeRozan
    Carroll
    Faried
    Valanciunas
    Bledsoe
    Gay
    Butler

    Not a huge fan of Faried tonight or having 3 Raptors, but I’m not finding better options with what else I have.

    No BJ Armstrong?

  • adelosa

    Anyone on the contrarian short slate strategy of playing the upset?

  • depalma13

    Sirius XM NBA radio said the Raptors are going with Siakam tonight.

  • mattyice522

    is MCW really THAT much of a better defender?

    Anyone fear Lin could possibly see Jimmy Butler there’s really no one else to fear on that team ?

    No, I don’t think Jimmy will guard Lin. It’ll probably be Rondo.

  • JTL33

    Jimmy butler or Blake Griffen, who has higher upside tonight?

    ICWUDT…I still say Rodman is going to be a beast tonight.

    Blake for GPP, Jimmy for Cash

    D Booker now questionable tonight per rotoworld. Can’t imagine him playing.

    I would pivot from DeRozen to Vince Carter, also Carroll to Tracy McGrady makes sense, but then you won’t have enough salary for Butler and Gay, so in order for some salary flexability let’s swap Craig Hodges for Butler and pivot from Gay to Peja Stojakovic — Peja will eat tonight!

  • Wesleya90

    I think it’s safe to just build around Boogie/CP3/Millsap tonight. Anyone else think differently??

  • Jflack3

    all of my LU’s have Val in them….ugh somebody talk him up or down.

    This is essentially a new team with the addition of KD. This always happens with “superteams.” They have early season growing pains as the new player learns to adjust to the team. It won’t last forever. They will be crushing teams on a nightly basis come February or so.

    I don’t think they will be “crushing” anyone. Only on the rare nights where they shoot like 65% for 3 quarters. Their defense was a problem last year when compared to how they played defense in 2014. And now they have no rim protection. Iggy has lost a step or two from where he was previously. He’s still a good player but there are nights where he’s going to look awful like he did in the opener vs SA. I mean he’s pretty old for a wing player who is still expected to be counted on to play lockdown defense.

  • bigstacks2015

    I’m fading Boogie tonight, my lineups just look so much better without him. I think if you’re making multiple lineups your either all in or all out on him.

    MCW is one of the best PG defenders in the league. Rondo is to put it lightly, not good on D?

  • bigstacks2015

    I have a lot of Butler, Paul, Lowry and Joker

    Friendly advice, @bonkurz. Don’t post full lineups in the forums.

    Besides, since Andre Johnson retired from the NFL, he should be in the DK player pool for NBA. I’d pivot from Faried to Johnson…and maybe swap Jimmy Butler for Arian Foster

    Yeah and the Nets are gonna win the NBA Championship.

    Any data, stats, evidence to back up this blasphemous claim? Other than “MCW gets a lot of steals” ?

  • mah3612

    I always like to fade Demar. Carroll i think is a decent value, Denvers wings aren’t great defenders, and the minutes should be there with a high paced game. Trevor Booker is a great value on FD. He and gibson are good plays to me along side griffin for cash games

  • TicketRaven

    This is nice!

  • mbunner23

    Fade Boogie in cash or no? Can’t decide.

  • bigstacks2015

    Gay Butler or Gay Cousins? or do you prefer naked Butler naked Cousins? tough choices tonight.

  • IronMonkey415

    I’m all about that Gay Butler
