    Just want to say. It’s straight up crazy how hard the chalk has smashed this year. It’s been a bit ridiculous, keep waiting for things to turn a little bit but my god….I feel on FD specifically it’s ridiculously hard to cash/win if you don’t have chalk. On DK I feel there are still many ways to get there without the chalk, but FD is ridiculous.

  • Jeddy3

    Chalk is chalk for a reason unfortunately. Also, there is a ton of content on the web so everyone knows about it now.

    Who wants to fade Doncic on a 2 game slate?

    Not me.

    Seems like there is enough value to fit in him and one other stud. Not sure if that’s the route I’m going yet.

    Going the other route. 2 game slate with Doncic? No way we can fade right? WRONG, straight fade tonight because it makes no sense which makes all the sense.

  • JustDFSin

    On FD most of the players are overpriced so you basically are picking players with the least bust potential

  • JSteele

    If I understand correctly Washington is a sweet matchup for Jokic foul trouble and a guy like Barton/Jeremi Grant/Plumlee to smash?

    Basically. The theory is Jokic is too fat and out of shape to do well in pace up games.These are Tmarohl’s theories though. Not that I disagree. Just want tot give him credit.

  • ppierce

    its almost like you have to fade doncic and hope he just hits 40 tonight. otherwise its pretty pointless to play.

    Why? It’s a 2 game slate. Tons of guys will be chalky that you can fade. Why fade the best one?

    Yeah I’d go the opposite. Just play Luka and hope he outscores everyone else by at least 10 which he has been easily doing. Not too difficult to fit him in either

  • monarch

    It’s a great night to play around with showdown…two showdown slates both have some 20 max offerings.

  • Bodiaz36

    Luka will be a full fade for me, and I don’t say that lightly. I expect him to be around where he usually is (60 fpts or so). I’m looking at Jokic, for significantly cheaper, who’s in a more exploitable matchup. I think it’s a ceiling game for him. I’ll grab Unicorn and PG from the first game, and call it a night. Good luck to all

    I’ve been learning this year not to fade the chalk. I’ve been fading chalk like ABC last night and got wrecked. I thought I was smart playing Drummond with Vuc AND Gordon out. Meanwhile ABC has a 80 burger. I can’t keep doing that. Luka, tonight you and I will ride in battle togetherrrrrrrr!!!!

  • Micah831

    And did anyone talk about Embiid going scoreless last night? Wtf

  • Bodiaz36

    Eh, Beers had both Embiid and Wanamaker in his 6-pack yesterday I think. Happens to the best of us sometimes…

  • rpolzin25

    Lock in luka… Fade joker… Cash…i mean easy peasy right?

    I’ve watched a few Denver games this year, perfect fade spot as the DvP is going to draw people to him but he’s going to get run off the floor. WAS is 7th in pace, we have 2 samples against very similar paced teams which are also great DvP matchups vs C in ATL and MEM.

    Playing 2 of Wager/Bertans/Bryant + Ish smith. Should be contrarian enough.

  • frugal

    Crap slate unfortunately. George and Kawhi eat into each others production and this doesn’t look like a good spot for Jokic which will push all ownership to Luka. Perfect night to hedge a balanced lineup but not sure there’s enough mid range guys with high upside to really build a high scoring lineup.

    Oh. Makes sense now

  • JSteele

    Isaiah Thomas returns to Denver where he wasted a year of his career being buried in the rotation.
