    I have quite a bit of interest in Jonas V tonight. He could smash in 20-25. 40-50 pts on a small slate might be enough. Bjelica is also sneaky with high upside and prob low ownership.

    Jonas a great GPP play

    Give me German with Thunder on back end of b2b only time he seems to ham for them this year.

    You can actually play both Rondo’s tonight, as the real one had his minutes limit lifted.

    Zero mention of Rondo today, is that because it is so obvious and he’ll be Aaron Holiday from yesterday owned, or are people not considering him despite 4400 and not minutes restriction

    Good call. I can see him smashing the OKC second unit with Dwight

    Does that mean he’s all of a sudden going to get 30+ minutes and take over the point guard spot from LeBron?

    Not saying Burks is a good or bad play, but he shot awfully last game. 2-13 and 0-4 from 3. Change that to 6-13 and 2-4 from 3 and you have a much more respectable fantasy total. He didn’t really lose usage, he just missed shots.

    Usage last game: 21%
    Usage when he scored 38 DK points- 24%
    usage when he scored 34 DK points- 19%
    Usage when he scored 47 DK points- 29% (which is obviously a lot higher than 21%)

    He was standing around a lot waiting to touch the ball. I’m not at home but how are his rates with Draymond ON?

    I’m in on Burks. MEM is bad, Burks should get what he wants. Not scared of him and Dray on the court together. GSW has very few guys who can get buckets, Burks is one of them right now.

    This is going to blow your mind…

    On the season, with Drayond and Burks ON, with Curry, D’Lo OFF we have a 51.1 minute sample.

    In that sample Burks has a 29.7% usage rate. That’s an 8.3% boost from his season average.

    He also averages .93 FPPM in that sample, which is only a +.03 FPPM boost.

  • monarch

    I’ve got Burks as a .84 this season with Draymond ON and the Warriors shooters off the floor

  • noddy

    Is Dame in play against Jrue?

    It’s worse with Poole and Lee off. I wonder if Burks as a SG stand in the corner role is not as optimal for him then if he were SF or PG.

    No, I am not suggesting he is going to best the greatest player of all time in any way shape or form.

    But for 4400 and 25+ minutes it seems like a no brainer to me. His back court competition (aside from LeBron) is KCP, Green, CaruGOAT, Daniels, and Cook. Not exactly a who’s who of ballers. It’s not even 8am yet and roster construction for me will be entirely based off of NOP injuries so who knows what direction I’ll go, I just figured Rondo would be a big part of that.

  • monarch

    I like Burks tonight. I’ve got him in the 30s DK tonight. Not a core piece for me at the moment.

    Yeah, if I was building a line up on FD right now, I’d have Bowman/Rondo as my PG’s. On DK it’s a little dicier, since you only need one PG and Morant is also priced fairly there. Although he should still be in the multi-entry pool

    Why is he not a core piece if he’s at 5k projected in 30s? Better value somewhere else?

  • tmarohl

    I am actually seriously looking at Melo on FD. They didn’t bring him in to rot at the end of the bench. If he debuts tonight I would think he would at least 16-18 minutes. He can chuck up a lot of threes in that short period of time.

    He has a high fail rate. He is a ball dominant iso player. I’ll have to look at the situations he crushed and see if Dray and Bowman negatively impact him. I also pointed out earlier that Memphis is forcing a ton of threes. I see some red flags to keep me from going all in.

    But its early. Only guy I really like without NOP news is Draymond and AD.

    Look at popcorn machine and see how his rotations play out. If he is basically sharing with Dray then that explains his poor usage and is a bump to Bowman who had more of the court to himself. I do like Burks more than Paschall.

    Last game he had about 10/30 minutes with the second unit while the remaining 20 he was with the starters/Dray

    Last game’s baseline/with starters/with second unit:

    • Usage: 21.4 / 22.9 / 32.9
    • Rebounds per 36: 4.8 / 2.5 / 8.7
    • Assists per 36: 6.1 / 7.5 / 4.3
    • FGA per 36: 15.7 / 15 / 21.7

    Obviously need to look at more games, but it looks like he basically becomes the primary scorer when with the secondary unit while his minutes with the starters are spent basically funneling assists.

    Thanks. He probably did much better as the lead option with the bench unit.

  • PaperStacking92

    Melo may not even play tonight

    Terry Stotts says Carmelo Anthony arrived in New Orleans last night.

    Stotts will meet with him today with an expectation that he could play tonight.

    It is early, but the two players I hate the most on this slate so far are Draymond and AD. Draymond because I just don’t think he can thrive without elite shooters around him. AD, because he is obviously hurt and hasn’t grabbed a rebound for about the last 4 games.
