    Tyler Johnson intrigues me with Green presumably out and Wade perhaps limited with the migranes and first of b2b. Could be a great min price punt on DK

    Agreed. Kid can get stats when given the time. Jumps as high as any white player I have seen.

    I have no feel on PG tonight to the point that I am sitting here debating the merits of Mario Chalmers vs. Tyler Johnson as my second PG on Fanduel. Does anyone feel strongly about any PG’s besides Westy tonight, no one has the look of hitting value.

    Linsanity?

    What about Conley? Lillard and McCollum are terrible defensively. I could see Conley having a solid game, especially if Gasol is out. Conley would presumably take a few more shots.

    The more I stare at this the more I just wanna stack the whole Thunder team. They seriously don’t want to lose 3 in a row right now.

    Linsanity?

    He is interesting tonight, if he can get the 27 minutes he was rolling the first couple games instead of the 20 minutes he got the last two, against Dallas he could definitely go 6-7x on FD.

    Looks like Wade is going to play. Green on the other hand appears to be less likely to play. I like Tyler Johnson for only 3K on DK on a slate that isn’t very exciting. Gotta take a couple of chances and this could be a good one.

    Less talk about jeremy freaking lamb!!!

    Yes because apparently SG is STOCKED with great players tonight. Not a lot of chalk plays today and I think Lamb could end up being the one to make or break you. The guy is jackin up shots in not a ton of minutes and right now has a floor of 4x and a ceiling of 8x. There are more obvious questions we don’t really need to talk about, but this I think we should. I’m glad to have heard comments from both sides but I’ll say this. The guy just got a nice contract, is hitting shots, and maybe just in a better position for him being out of the shadow of RWB and KD. That’s a lot of pressure playing with those guys, it can’t be easy. I think he’s got some confidence now and I’m locking him in to all my LU’s.

    Dwight Powell seems like a safe bet for 5x on DK (he’s been averaging 9 & 9 over his last 3 with minutes increasing each game). Last game he only hit 4/14 shots so there’s upside here if Zaza gets in foul trouble again.

  • noddy

    I feel like I have to have Jimmy Butler on my roster. Nothing more tilting than watching chat when he goes off and I don’t have him on my roster.

    @tonytone1908 said...

    I think that’s key. Confidence is the one thing he never really had. He would come in and miss a couple shots and just sink his shoulders and wander around the court the rest of his minutes. The games where he was confident, he showed plenty of potential.

    I might actually roster him only because this slate sucks. And he’s playing Dallas.

    Conley has been the guy I’ve been looking at too, agreed about Lillard and McCollum defensively, at 6,600 on FD he strikes me as being slightly overpriced but I guess it’ll depend on how the rest of my lineup shakes out. Saw a mention of Justice Winslow just above, I like him as a nice low cost SF play

    Yes the shut down defense of Mirotic and Doug McDermott is very intimidating.

    Butler will be on Durant most likely.

    Big fan. His minutes are increasing every game and he’s so close to that double double every single time.

  • bspchs12

    Wade?

  • kyleb728

    I think I may take a flier on Wesley Matthews, gotta think he hits his shot eventually right? Very cheap too. Don’t think many will be on him

    IDK, I think it’s chasing points and the upside is a bit limited.

    Well I have to roster him since I was building him up. Lamb one time please. Very well said.

    Dragic?

  • millerto

    Man if you guys talk me into Lamb, I swear

  • Xaque

    Anybody have the stomach to watch Dallas games this year? Is Dwight Powell really a lock for 20+ minutes? I was under impression that he played a lot in part because of injuries this year. He had a great preseason(I won some money playing him at like 0.3% ownership on 10/23) but he was starting pretty much then. I think he’s a great player if he gets minutes but this is the kind of night where taking even one “reach” dud will completely sink your ship. It’s hard to ignore his last 2 games however.

  • mccraw

    Anybody like Rudy Gobert against a banged up Denver? Looks like he could control the boards.

  • RatedDAL

    Somewhat a beginner as far as proper research goes but common sense tells me that finding low ownership on a slate like tonight could be huge. Are punts an even bigger determining factor in GPP’s, moreso than they normally are?
