    Porzingis against the Knicks…hmmm

  • WillyWongka

    Will JVal get an extended run to match the size of Vuc or do they go smaller to run him off the court?

    I think he’s still on a limit right? Unless they raised it, I don’t think it matters what Orlando does.

    In all honesty is it typically this hard in NBA? Like NFL I’m pretty decent at at least 2x cash each week. NBA is so difficult I don’t understand.

    It’s just different. I used to play nfl cash mostly with a few gpp darts. Most weeks green but profit is small mostly. On my first 20 deposit I made like 200 some over two seasons. Withdrew most and lost rest. Wasn’t really worth the effort or stress so I stopped every week nfl.

    Nowadays I come around to the dfs sites usually start of football season and after losing again for playoffs. Just good for fun. Stick to gpps. But last season after profitable football playoffs I dabbled in the nba with decent success, especially on fanball where I took 1st and 2nd in their biggest NBA contest one night

    The thing with me is i withdrawal when I am up and am prepared to lose what I leave in. If it grows i withdrawal again. Means I might not be playing next month but i already withdrew 10x what I put in from a hot streak I got on after a deposit for mlb to get a free nfl ticket. Cashed most every contest in nfl and NBA last preseason game to start of reg season. Then the losing streak started. Hopefully I get some more cashes in a row but if I don’t I am fine moving away with a little profit and not playing till Jan/feb

    Unsure if I wanna go back with Culver even if Teague is out. Just don’t know if he can get there with the big price bump

    I don’t think I would pay 5K for him on DK, but 3.8 on FD is enticing

    If we’re talking $3.8K on FD, then yes. $5K on DK, probably no.

    Early look at yahoo value today

    Bargain Basement:

    Guards:

    Markelle Fultz $10 – Fultz hasn’t had a big game yet but tonight may be that chance facing MEM who’s 4th in pace and 9th in opp total FP.

    Ish Smith $10 – While he’s been demoted to the bench, that may actually work out better for him. Last game he saw better minutes than IT and his price hasn’t budged desite averaging 2.2X his salary over the last 5 games. While his upside is capped in the Baal focused offense, he has the ability to to 3X even in more limited minutes.

    Forwards

    Damion Lee $10 – Pretty much the only Warrior whose price hasn’t adjusted, though they moved him from SG to SF. He’s had 3 games of ~2.5X+ over the last 5 and I can see that path again tonight vs the Wolves. Glen Robinson is still a reasonable $13 as well.

    C

    Maxi Kleber or Dwight Powell $11 – While Porzingis is the narrative play here, presuming POrtis starts I could see either or maybe even both these cheap bigs going 2X+ tonight in a game which will likely need 2 mobile bigs on the floor to match up with Randle/Portis/Taj.

    Few under $23 plays who’ve averaged 32+ FP and 1.4X+ last 5 games:

    Harrison Barnes $19 – 32.86
    Marcus Morris $23 – 33.56
    OG Anunoby $19 – 35.74
    Richaun Holmes $17 – 32.68
    Taurean Prince $21 – 30.8
    Will Barton $18 – 30.84

    Looks like it’s been slowly rising with each game. Up to 27 last game vs. MIN

  • jahust11

    Looks like a balanced night for me. Don’t trust any value so far. I like Whiteside, Horford, and JJJ on DK. Prices seem to low…

  • Calicapo

    An inordinate amount of games that could end up in the 250s….

    Sheesh…

    Normally I’m more excited when you write these up. I’m not too excited about those value plays.

    I’m liking balanced so far as well. Large slate and a few nice games to stack

  • Jeddy3

    Anyone watch the last Dallas game and know why Seth Curry only played his fist run and didn’t comeback? Anything specific other than he sucks?

    Edit: trying my hardest to get away from Hood.

    Yeah, I’m not too excited myself about them. News with MIN could put Culver in play again who’s still $10 and CJ Miles is a very interesting spot if he starts. I’m feeling a more balanced approach so far with a couple of those 1.4X lower mid tier guys and maybe 1 budget guy vs a full stud/scrub lineup.

  • JTL33

    Who do you guys like early on for cash games? Neto is probably going to be the chalk at point guard I’d assume

    I’m liking Brooks at $12 & Powell at $11. Barnes & Holmes vs the Hawks is tempting. Had Barton in my initial line. Little surprised no one has mentioned Drummond, he absolutely murdered the Pacers a couple weeks ago.

    Dallas was struggling, specifically guards in terms of play making. RC opted to give Barea those minutes in the 2nd and he blew up and as such lost his minutes in the 2nd half to him.

  • Petergunz82

    FVV for 6200 DK seems nice

  • ripking

    Anyone think Fournier could be a good sleeper? Seems like Memphis has been getting killed by shooting guards, I’m also contemplating Bog from Sac town. Towns, embiid or Drummond?

    I think Drum is going to go under owned with Towns and Davis on the slate both with just as favorable matchups.

    Jokic would appear to own some real estate in Embiid’s head based on last year game logs.

    Jimmy Butler gets up for games against LeBron and he’s got a good spot with Winslow out again.

    Julius Randle is in a perfect buy low opportunity again. He’s close to putting it all together, last game the peripherals weren’t there but the points were. Before that it was the opposite. The big story from this game will be KP against New York, but buried behind that is Randle is a Dallas native, he’s got the matchup, he’ll have friends and family in attendance, and he has a really good history against Dallas.

    I’ve decided I’m playing randle nightly cuz I’m sure when I get off the train it will be the night I regret it

    He did murder them and then he had a mediocre (by dfs standards) game against them.
