    Murray is out, and Love is questionable.

    I’m guessing Love is out.

    If Murray and White are out that has to benefit DDR if the game can be competitive. It’s basically point DDR which probably goes horribly wrong because the ball will never be passed

  • tmarohl

    Dejounte Murray Out
    Derrick White – Probable
    Love – Questionable
    Hutchinson – Probable
    Caruso – Doubtful

    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.

    Ownership aside, you think Skal is a core play at 5600?

    Not saying he’s to the point of Continental Crust…but a more normalized 32 pts seems likely

  • tmarohl

    Illyasova – Out

  • tmarohl

    Detroit did not submit their injury report. Playing games – Probably don’t want to reveal Blake’s status this early in the day.

  • JSteele

    Last time Love was out Julius Randle went nuts.

    Anyone interested in paying 5k for 30 minutes of Melo. I’m guessing having Lillard back will help him get more open shots in the pick and pop

    I mean… if you think 32 points at 5600 is likely, then just lock the dude. He’s not going to be absurdly chalky at that price, but decently so I would guess.

    Well. He has been but he needs 30 minutes. One game last season he played 30 minutes he has 32.5 DK points.

    The year before that he surpassed value in six consecutive games to close the season.

    I had him in a few of those contests. So I will happily go heavy at $4300 on DK.

    I don’t think Lillard plays.

    Out of curiosity…………………………..huh?

    I don’t see how those two players are related. NY plays SA and CLE plays POR.

    Lebron worth the price tonight? Major dud last game vs Memphis

    He is my favorite play at the moment

    His back tightened up on him, and he says he is a game time decision.

    Status note: Damian Lillard (back) said he’ll be a game-time decision Saturday.

    no. lillard is questionable and seems closer to doubtful

  • tmarohl

    To be fair, Portland is listing him as probable. Dame himself say’s he is a game time decision. I am going to Bucks game, so I will not have time to adjust lineups so I am assuming he is out.

    CLE is incredibly week inside without Love. So, Randle smashed against CLE when Love sat a week or so ago. Now Love may be out again, weakening CLE inside.

    Now the thing is Melo and Randle are mostly different players. Melo plays more outside and Randle plays more inside. So, because of that I don’t think it’s a strong correlation.

    The correlation is that Skal just became an even better play if Love is out on FD at $4,200

    As of right now, no. I’m assuming Love is out and would rather play Nance.

    You think that’s enough for GPPs?

    Right, not Melo who was the player originally mentioned by JSteele as benefiting from Love out.

  • captainwacky

    @Petergunz82 said...

    absolutely. Obviously it’s not something you can project to be certain, but if you were like “hey, this guy at a reasonably variable position is going to get 32 points for 9 percent of the cap”, I would take that 100 percent of the time. I think I’m just simplifying basic DFS strategy (and assuming you get that, too), but sometimes you just take what’s given to you.

  • tmarohl

    Panda – Per Breves on the projection team, sounds like Detroit Beat Writers are convinced Blake isn’t playing.
