    240 total, hmm.. Wonder if Zo plays today. Right now I got Fox & Buddy from Sac, Ingram & Kuz from LA. KD seems like a lock, anyone know how Klay does with Steph & Dray out?

    Without looking up the games from last year, I seem to recall that the Warrior offense was pretty underwhelming when Curry and Dray were out. KD if I recall may have hit value, but the offense as a whole was pretty stagnant.

    That late game can you not roster LeBum?

    I have to go with Rhondo if Lonzo is out. Great gpp play, up tempo game, poor Fox D.

    Klay has been hot. I’m riding him again. Think the warriors will need his scoring.

    Also, feel like Hart or Stephenson has a big game. WCS looks nice too. I’m fading LeBron and McGee.

    The only game(s) I could find without both Steph and Dray

    FD points

    3/14/18 – Durant (45) //// Klay (DNP)
    12/6/17 – Durant (66) //// Klay (28)
    12/11/17 – Durant (51) //// Klay (31)
    12/14/17 – Durant (60) //// Klay (27)
    12/18/17 – Durant (71) //// Klay (30)
    12/20/17 – Durant (36) //// Klay (41)

    I just posted the numbers. Both are probably worth a shot, although more KD is better since the offense will run through him.

    Not posted, were Bell and Iggy who both had some good games without Steph and Dray. Not sure which one I would rather play (if either). Bell has got over 20 minutes last 2 games. I think if you want low floor/high ceiling for GPP’s, Bell would be the play.

    Do you play a GS Big with how bad BKN has been against BIgs this season? Jokic put up almost 70 FD point on them last night

    Nice work 😎

    Yep, Durant is in play, Klay is still Klay, does what he always does. IMO Quin Cook is the player you want the most exposure to. No Livingston, no Steph, no Dray, he’s gonna run the offense a good bit and is in line for 36 minutes in a close game. 4200 on DK. He’s proved capable in the past, in similar situations, and has been hot lately.

    This season…All seasons, every season. Probably but who? Looney, jones, bell? Wish Gs had center who sees minutes.

    Yeah that is about what I remember.

    I can’t recall about Bell as I don’t remember if he was out due to his injury during any of those games as well.

    But I am not the best person to ask when it comes to that because I always look for an excuse to play Bell….so I will have him!

    I think the three centers I am playing are Bell, Howard and WCS. Maybe not Howard if I decide to double up on one of the other two (on FD) in my three lineups.

    Thx brotha. So KD exceeded his current price 3/6 times, Klay 1/5. Good to know.

    Anyone punting with Koufus the doofus tonight? Seems to be in the rotation now, went 8x last night..

    Too much value on the FD main slate today. I think hat takes me off the BTS 260 and 280 games as their should be no reason those scores are not crushed today (unless this is finally the day that all the scrub chalk lay an egg).

    Not sure if I will play the BTS 300. Not that I don’t think I can’t pass it but it is $25!

  • jhk1987

    So with Osman out today Does Nance finally get a start or will Cavs go with Nwaba or even Frye because they seem to hate playing Nance

    Shoot I forgot about Cedi being out. Hmm. Wish I could trust Nance getting 25 minutes, we saw a couple weeks ago what he can do when given decent run.

    Yeah if he can get the minutes he is in a smash spot with Jabari D against him

    I would bet on KD surpassing value today though. Reasons:

    *BKN on a back end of B2B.
    *The game is in GS.
    *GS was shelled their last game so I think KD comes to play.
    *Who on BKN is gonna stop him? RHJ, isn’t playing enough minutes, and even if he was, not going to shit KD down.

    And for your other post, I am not rolling with Koufso. I think he only got minutes last night because of the Wolves size. If I remember from last season, the Kings never played him back to back either, and he is much more out of the rotation so far this year.

    So the only time Quinn has got the start without Steph and Dray, was that game on 12/20/17, and he scored 12 FD points.

    He’s started 18 games in his career, and has got 30+ FD points in 6 of them. Below are the pieces missing for those games.

    No Curry or Klay
    No Curry or Livingston
    None of the starters played
    No Curry or Iggy
    No Curry, Durant, or Klay
    No Curry, Durant, or Klay

    I must I’m very impressed with myself. I won the league gpp this week AND finished in last. #rickybobby

    Alright, don’t laugh, but here’s another “conspiracy”

    Curry went down on Thursday, and I think most people probably figured he was going to be out tonight’s game. So why then is Durant 200 less than Lebron?

    Conspiracy: FD knows the masses will see Curry is out, and will want to flock to KD. Then they see KD is cheaper than LBJ, and it makes them want to play him even more. Thus missing out on the 72 fpts Lebron drops tonight.

    Of course I don’t feel as confident about this take as my Wayne Ellington take yesterday, but I do think Lebron is a decent pivot. If you’re playing multiple, then get some exposure to both.

    Yes but those stats are skewed. Imo, with Cook, the most important game is the one with no Curry AND no Livingston. And in that game he scored 36 DK points. Dray also played that game, who is a ball handler.

    I agree, I think KD smashes tonight. He’s gonna have to for them to win. Doofus also got run bc of WCS foul trouble. But then again, since the guy who won 50k in the Slam last night had Randolph, maybe there’s merit to rostering a Kings big who isn’t guaranteed run lol.

    yeah I think he would be fine.

    You could even go Rondo/Cook, which will probably be pretty popular.

    Ahh…how about AD at 11.8 with that little red 2 next to his name, when he’s actually the center, and sees the 5th BEST matchup for centers. If memory serves me correctly, didn’t he drop a 95 🍔 with 🥓 and 🧀 and a side of🍟and some 🍰🍨🍪 for dessert on the Suns not too long ago. Things that make you go hmmmmm
