    The debate would go on for pages . Then someone would bait him weeks later and it would start up again lol.

    Who is your favorite pay-up stud on DK? I really like Curry but he is the top priced option on the slate so I am wondering if someone else offers better QPR.

    I think any Curry, Harden, or Durrant could be the top scorer. If things fall the right way…Maybe even Fox, CJ, or FVV. If you’re multi entering best to cover everything. If not, I always take a look at opportunity cost. For example, Curry may go off but are there value picks also available there who could do way, way better from a FPPD aspect and is there a player at another position with a similar upside? More or less, is something like a Curry and Nance Jr pair likely to beat Simons and Durant?

    i secretly always thought this was my buddy who also lived in the Charlotte area ( i think that is right for MtD?).. anyways, i definitely got drunk, (attempted to) called him out and was met with wildly blank stares- and then he felt like he had been attacked because i said he was the guy who thought Covington > Durant LOL.. yeah, good times

  • bobbbb

    slow injury news today

  • frugal

    Trent Jr out.

  • MutomboNoNoNo

    Roto forum classics:
    MTDurham’s novels where he fought the whole board.

    And Brendan’s hot cheating wife saga.

    dfs reminiscing has me wishing FanDuel would bring back the ol’ drop the score of the lowest player format they had!

    I think he had chemical dependency issues

    What a great week he has had. Let’s recap.
    1) “Accidentally elbows”, then sucker punches Stewart with back hand fist.
    2) Complains that it wasn’t worthy of a suspension
    3) Almost loses to the lowly Pistons, Twice
    4) Gets two fans kicked out in Indy.
    5) Grabs his junk and try’s to do the Cassell dance.
    6) Plays in a game against Sacremento at home that went to triple OT because of his failures at the end of regulation and first overtime because he decides to settle for 25 plus foot jumpers instead of going to the basket and getting breathed on.

    Trent Jr out.

    Svi!!

  • tmarohl

    RJ Barrett expected to play

  • tmarohl

    Watch most of these questionable Knicks get ruled out and have out of the rotation Kemba break the slate.

  • Divine_Prodigy

    Can you trust Jaren Jackson Jr on this slate though ? Like truly ? Foul trouble(potential) and the fact he always plays 26 or less minutes . Idk man .

    You can never trust JJJ. But he can also break a slate, so just view any lineups with him as inherently more volatile.

    MtDurham, lol. God that guy was relentless.

    Feel like playing one BK/NY stack just to be contrarian.
