    Don’t have many. I assume everyone plays. They most likely suffer a bit of a letdown between last nights win and facing the vastly superior Bucks. If you want to go with the blowout angle and play Wood I think that’s acceptable. Drum’s history against the Bucks, especially since they got BroLo is pretty mediocre.

    I’m not playing the blowout angle. The Bucks have not been blowing anyone out. They get leads of 12-14 and let the other team back in. Another thing in Detroit’s favor is my wife is going to the game with me. She rarely sees a Buck’s victory as they tend to lose when she goes. With that said, she did witness a victory against Detroit in the playoffs. I would also think just by very human nature seeing how they decimated Detroit in the playoffs last year that they don’t come out with the intensity they need to beat Detroit. If this was football I would call it a trap game.

    Also, this feels like a Bucks practice from last season minus Blake and Drummond. There are so many ex Bucks on Detroit. They know each other well. Snell, Thon, Wood, Frazier. Wood and Thon especially – Giannis considers both of them his little brothers. Wood is the kind of guy that plays with a chip on his shoulder and likes to prove his doubters wrong. I am looking for a huge game from Wood.

    Last note, if Detroit was smart, Wood should be in the starting lineup. Lineup should be Drummond at C, Blake and Wood at F, whomever your point guard is, and Kennard in the back court.

    Damn, forgot about Aminu too. He should be an excellent play tonight per dollar

    Aminu at the same price on FD might be a good pivot

    Why pivot from the chalk when the chalk is smashing?

    Maybe I’ve grown a little bitter this season, but I’ve cost myself more money this season by trying to pivot from the chalk when the obvious has been the right play.

  • Way2fast23

    So have I…and I really love Skal at 4200 now that Whiteside is out. Do you think the return of Lillard and Tristan and Love down low affects Skals upside?

    The problem with Wood is he’s not even really in the rotation. He’s just getting blowout run.

    Birch feels like good chalk

  • Bodiaz36

    I’m gonna go out on a limb and say Skal won’t be getting 50+ fpts tonight. With that said, he’s still an excellent play. You can easily pair him with Birch or Aminu at PF (on FD) and pay up at C..aEmbiid or Drum

    Because…?

  • JustDFSin

    @monarch said...

    I’ll probably go back to Biyombo if obvious value doesn’t open up. May play him regardless

    Are you playing on fd or dk?

  • monarch

    @Pandamonious said...

    He has to play. There isnt an alternative for the Magic in the front court. Sort of like the GSW situation last night

    I know, but he should be starting, because he is your third best front court player.

    Im confused at some of these takes i see regulars are making. Its almost as if they see a injury replacement is starting and now he is chalk. If he was minimum priced i could see it but 5700 on FD? I dont get it

    Yeah, but Spellman and Chriss still failed, because they’re Spellman and Chriss.

    Birch has played high minutes before and done nothing with them. I agree, he probably plays 30 minutes. He probably doesn’t suck. He just most likely gets 20-30, with closer to 20 most likely.

    I’m not playing Drummond. He has not been historically able to pay off that price tag against the Bucks, and there is a pretty good sample size to look at. Can he smash? Yes, but history says he wont. On FD, I would rather play Rudy for the late night hammer at 1.3K cheaper. with that said, $8,300 on DK is something I might have to put in a lineup or two.

  • monarch

    Build out a case for Birch for me where he plays on the low end of 20 minutes. Where does the minutes go at the four and five?

    I don’t play FD. He is 4300 on DK with a great shot at 28+ minutes

  • monarch

    Panda….Spellman was 6.8x last night. That’s not failing

    Foul trouble against Sabonis and Turner, and he is still Khem Birch.

    They are going to use a combination of Birch, mo bamba, aminu and probably Amile jefferson if he is active

    That’s kind of a copout because that applies to every player in the NBA but still. Where do the minutes go. We have 96 minutes to account for at the 4/5

    He will be able to pay off that salary, with plenty of room for upside.

    We need to assign minutes projections

    Haven’t looked at DK yet, but I wouldn’t play Khem Birch at $5,700 on FD if he was guaranteed 48 minutes.

    Thanks! Think Im just gonna lock in Skal and Aminu on FD like someone just said and move on
