    I faded Klay and Simmons for Lou/Blake. I woke up happy, just missed on Andre 20/20

  • cfitz19

    Finished with 311 last night and had three players score under 20 fantasy points. Still came out pretty well. Lets see if I can improve just a little tonight and take home some big bucks. Thanks for all of the insight here, some awesome stuff.

    I can’t believe how bad Jae Crowder has been for the Cavs this year. Really enjoyed watching him in Boston. Thought this was a great deal for CLE (even with IT injured for the first half of the season) but now it’s looking like BOS got the better deal.

    The reason I say this is I have a cash LU I really love and the 2nd PF spot (FD) left. Unfortunately I have the exact amount left that Crowder costs. One year ago I would have said “hell yeah! All the Crowder for $4500!”

    It’s a damn shame how bad he has played. He literally tosses up some of the ugliest bricks from 3. He was such a better shooter last year. Too hard to trust him now. They might as well move Jeff Green into the starting lineup imo. He has been much more consistent.

    January 4th, 2015 – Dion Waiters last game with the Cavs – get outta here with this ‘revenge’ stuff you guys are ridiculous

    Give it time, come playoffs Crowder will look like a potential all star and everyone will be talking about how bad the Cavs fleeced the Celtics in this trade.

    Some more random stats.

    In his last 100 games, Lebron has played 15 B2Bs, and made value in 4 of them. Highest was 76.8 FD points
    In his last 100 games, ABC has played 9 games with 3 days of rest and made value in 3 of them. Highest was 63.9 FD points

    Lebron and Giannis have played on the same day a total of 10 times this season. Giannis has outscored Lebron on 6 of those days.

    are revenge narratives only good for a game, a year, whats the time frame they still exist? guess it depends on how bad the departure was.

    I agree. Don’t watch a lot of Cavs games but since they were playing Philly I watched. When did Jeff Green become this guy? I think he’s played on 4 or 5 teams in just the few years I’ve played DFS. Remember picking him a few times and being nothing but disappointed. Last night he did not look like a role playing journeyman.

    Yea still early to call. On paper the cavs definitely robbed the celtics. Once IT is back it will start show i think. Not really that much dropoff from Kyrie to IT. I feel like Crowder will feed off IT being back too since they are familiar with playing with each other. So it will only boost him.

    Thats some deep research there bud. But good stuff

    You got it!

    What’s most interesting is how the defenses compare in the last 5 games.

    Sacramento has been giving up more to the studs than Miami, but it was the complete opposite in the first 5 games.

    I agree. It very rarely is worth paying attention to.

    Cousins V Sac (yes)
    Lou V Lakers yes)
    Bledsoe v PHX (with Giannis out…………hell yes)
    RWB v Golden State (revenge b/c of Durant, not b/c of the actual organization = yes)

    Bradley V Bos (no, Bradley isn’t pissed and seems to really like his new team)
    Love V MIN (no, he doesn’t hate the team or the fans)

    And plus, what you said………..if it’s been a long time then also “NO!”

    It might not even be that useful, but data is never useless.

    Honestly with all the numbers I’ve posted it really seems like ABC > Lebron, which is why I’m really leaning towards Lebron instead.

  • hanyo66

    Remember:

    The goal is not to get 6x value from all 8 of your players, but from all 50,000 of your dollars. This makes the safety of studs like LeBron so much more appealing to me. If you can get a 5x floor from $10,000, that’s 20% of your money that was well spent.. getting 5x from a 4K player is only 8% of your money well spent. 5X’s are not created equal – it’s much more important to hit on your higher priced picks

    A CHI/PHO stack will win the money

    Damn dude! Those are some hot metrics.

    Hope that one guy doesn’t blame you for his bad choices again.
