    0% Aldridge for me

    Yeah, what is the attraction with Aldridge? The Portland narrative is old as he has played there about 6 times already since leaving. He never really crushes anymore. Just enough to get value. He will get popped it they are ahead or behind. I could see sprinkling him in some multi entry’s, but will be far from a core play for me.

    6? Try 15! he’s been gone a long time. Anyway, yeah, I’ve been high on him a couple times this year, but he really just isn’t worth it. Realistic best case he gets 40? 1 in 30-40 times maybe he gets 50+. Most likely going to get 35-40.

    Monk’s price was up and kind of chasey.
    Culver hadn’t shown enough upside.
    Zeller, meh.
    Thomas was doing better off the bench. Yet to come through as a starter.
    Sabonis had a tougher spot then it appeared on paper.

    You didn’t have Aminu.

    If it’s VegasInsider don’t bother. They don’t update that at all. George is probably still listed out from before.

    Yeah its from them

  • monarch

    Ya…Sabonis is priced around his ceiling. I could be wrong but he does not have a ceiling like Beal and he was more expensive. I couldn’t play him at that price.

    No one is talking about Giannis. As a Bucks homer, I can tell you the team is not playing very good right now. The threes are not dropping. They let crappy teams like the Bulls hang around, which leads to more minutes for Giannis than the Bucks probably prefer to let him play. On this slate to me option 1A is Harden, and 1B is Giannis. Both probably can be expected to put up 65 – 70 DK points tonight, with potential for more.

  • tmarohl

    Dougie McBuckets, played 32 minutes last night, took 15 shots, and his price went down $200 on DK. Thank me later :)

    I’m over 320 and some nights I don’t even get close.

    This is normal for limited entry players, even Very good ones.

    Of course if you make 150 lineups some of them will obviously do well even on overall losing nights. There’s nothing to fix. You can’t win them all.

    I’ve fortunately been on a good run. Last night I cashed 9 of 14 lineups for just over 2x my buy ins. I also had DeAngelo Russel getting injured in 5 of those lineups.

    The night before, complete whiff…0 for 7.

    The night before that cashed 5 of 7 for 2x.

    I consider myself a pretty good player, and I completely whiff sometimes. Unfortunately, we can’t win every night, that’s DFS.🤷‍♂️

  • monarch

    Speaking of whiffs. I have whiffed every single Saturday slate this season. I win on Sunday in NFL…keep my head above water throughout the week during NBA and get crushed on Saturdays.

    That changes today. I have a good feeling about tonight’s slate

    @tmar – I see the bucks recalled Dragan Bender today – you think he gets any run?

    Obviously, you are predicting TJ Warren to foul out in 22 minutes again

  • kettab24

    yea don’t sweat it keep grinding I’ve won 50k and 20k on 2 separate occasions and I still lose most nights than not….I’m a tournery play though

  • tmarohl

    @tmar – I see the bucks recalled Dragan Bender today – you think he gets any run?

    No. They just been shipping him and Giannis’s brother to the G League team for extra practice and to get a little game time in. The team is only about 70 miles from Milwaukee so it is easy to do. I don’t think Bender will see the court the entire year unless there are about four injuries in the front court. They are developing him for next year.

    He played 26 in the previous two games as well. Lot of minutes in the back court opening up if Brogdon is out. If McConnell is out, even more.

  • monarch

    Great TJ Warren spot

  • kettab24

    what are you guy’s thoughts on TJ McConnell? I think he plays…he’s a pretty tough guy and they’ll need him

  • monarch

    Tyler Herro priced way down and 29.2 percent usage in his most recent game

  • ep1977

    How does DK determine the positions? I notice way to many players having no forward eligibility who are wing players. For example Barrett is more of SF than a 2 guard since he can’t shoot yet he’s listed a PG/SG not SG/SF.

    Maybe last night. But tonight, I’m going to have some Sabonis. Not a core piece, yet more than just a one off for me. Plenty of meat on that 8500 bone with No Brogdon and Turner now doubtful.

    If by some Miracle it stays close, and we’ll need it to for Sabonis to reach his ceiling, run that back with Giannis.
