    McCollum at 6.5 on FD, just too cheap with 40 upside no?

    dude i been saying that since his price dropped… His 40 he is hitting is getting lucky… I do agree with you but he has been getting really lucky to get 40 if the coach don’t play him almost 40 mins he won’t touch that.. He played a lot yesterday so i think he will only get 30 tonight. He is missing a lot of shots he hit last year. I won’t be playing him today but good luck to ya man hope he proves me wrong but i would rather go klay tonight.

    Curry basically played half of the game last night so he should be fresh tonight.
    Eat the chalk with Philly.

    With KD out Currys usage jumps to 42% from 31%. He also rested the entire 4th qtr last night. Gimme all the Curry, fade away if you must.

    Will do. Enjoy your 40 points :)

    I’m going right back to the well on Lowry tonight he is under 8k against the hawks. My only concern would be a blowout but both teams on b2bs hopefully keeps this one close.

    I went with him too in one of my DK LU’s, but I am concerned about the b2b road games + he played 40 minutes last night. The Hawks had b2b home games. So that is an advantage for them. Plus they are coming off a nice win last night against the Knicks, so maybe they get a little momentum from that and keep it somewhat close?

    Since last season, Curry has played 21 games without Durant, where Klay and Draymond both played as well.

    He’s had 2 games where he scored over 60 FD points, but 13 games where he didn’t get to 5x.

    I wouldn’t advise a complete fade, though that’s what I’ll be doing, because he can certainly have a good game. I just think his ceiling is 45 FD points tonight.

    Draymond averaged 35 FD PPG and Klay 29 in that span. All 3 were wildly inconsistent without KD.

    Told you guys about westbrook over AD is safe for 65. Gonna play Westy again and Favors

    Eh…this really isn’t an I told you so moment, unless you specifically said the Pelicans will blow out the Suns, and AD wouldn’t see a full workload. AD put up 39 DK points in 25 minutes. If he played his typical 40 it would have been 62.5 DK points plus the double double bonus for 64 points, which is 2 DK points less than Westbrook.

    Who’s everyone liking at center tonight

    Loving the Process, but is Maker in play at all? his price tag didn’t raise much on FD? I mean if he gets to 20 FDpts thats 5x… Am I crazy for wanting to put him in one of my LUs? Help me guys I really value your input.

    We have also been seeing MVP Curry of late so I wouldn’t lean to heavily on last season’s metrics.

    Not sure what you mean by this.

    He’s had one great game in his last 10, and that was against Brooklyn.

  • colb24

    Rondo on back to back and coming off injury no way In hell slowing down Curry …. my only worry is NO gets ended early

  • scott33

    @apeterson8809 said...

    Stat correction finally helped me out last night. Bumped me from 6th to 2nd in the $33 triple threat last night. . .

    And don’t overthink it, CURRY if KD sits

    Thx champ, I always take your suggestions to heart.

    How much is AD on DK? He has hit value 2 times in his last 8 games on FD, and just barely. In his last 6 vs PHX, he has struggled to hit 4 times value. I think the GS players are traps tonight they are wildly inconsistent without KD, even in plus matchups

    A new thing is wing scorers vs Atlanta. If you need a punt…powell or CJ, if he plays, are good tournament looks.

    Not sure what you mean by what you’re saying either. He put up 50 points last night in only 26 minutes.

    Thanks man. It’s looking like the stars and scrubs build won’t be as effective tonight. Smells like a 1 star + 6k-8k balance + just sub 5k guys (JJ Redick as an example).

  • odeethedon

    My thinking on today’s slate on DK:
    With or without Durant play Curry he has always killed the Pelicans.
    Eat the Philly chalk. I’m stacking Embiid, McConnell, and Saric. McConnell is too cheap and Embiid and Saric will get huge usage boosts without Simmons and Vucevic has no chance guarding Embiid.
    Take all the Beal if Wall is ruled out.
    Lowry and Derozan are in great spots against the Hawks if you can fit them in.
    If John Collins gets the minutes he will smash against Toronto.
    Vucevic usually kills Philly but idk if I want to test him against a great defender in Embiid and he will have to use a lot of energy defending him. Would rather go Payton here facing the smaller McConnell.
    Dwight in a great spot to be low owned against a unathletic Spurs frontcourt. Lamb should be in play again if Batum is out.
    Kyrie and Horford should eat in a pace up game against the Pacers and should see a boost if Jaylen Brown sits. Smart and Rozier are also in play if Brown sits.
    Favors will smash the Bucks frontcourt. Hood could be a good low owned option against the Bucks bad wing defense against 3 point shooters.
    Adams should eat up boards against Dallas.
    Randolph gets up to play against Blake and the Clippers for some reason. Also like Cauley-Stein, Lou Williams, and Wes Johnson from that game.

    That’s all I got for now will be back with more thoughts if anything else comes to mind.

    Shhh on Redick.

    It’s reallllly looking like a Jahlil Okafor night though, am I right???

    U play DK or FD? I play FD, though I know a lot of the plays translate site to site. U think Maker is a bad idea with ABC back? is he a no go?

    100% DK. No real opinion on that game yet. Ricky Rubio price makes me go hmmmmm. Box score watchers will shy away, but the last 3 games were basically blowout situations.

    edit John Henson is probable.

    Fair enough. Okay AD was the play. I Still believe you’re chasing 15 points from him and get the safe 65 with Westbrook. That’s what I said yesterday. AD hasn’t reach 65 since Rondo came back.

    Curry’s ceiling is never 45 points. Do you know what ceiling means? Can Curry flop tonight and get 40 or less, yes of course but tonight is a smash spot for him with no Durant and there is a chance NO keeps it close enough for Curry to play into 4th. I would advise listening to APeterson whose results speak for themselves

    Oh didn’t know Henson was prob, yeah that makes Thin a no go. The 3 Centers that stick out to me the most with good match ups are Embiid, Horford & Deandre.
