    PG vs Orlando

    Ah yes. The reason I’m debating playing Wall and Augustin on FD tonight

    Seems like I am the only person on A. Gordon? And if I drop from Jokic to WCS I can upgrade from Lyles to Murray/Young/ or Mitchell which makes me really like lu. Seems those combos have a higher floor and ceiling.

    I have a ton of Gordon tonight!

    Don’t know if I can stomach playing KAT tonight with Butler being in. He has crushed against WCS and company, but the only huge game he has had with Butler on the court was their first game against LA. Maybe I add Butler to the utility slot and sub KAT if they pull some BS before game time. Maybe just roll KAT and hope most lay off of him due to the Butler factor and pray that KAT still smashes. Sorry, just typing as I think.

    Don’t know Wall’s price on FD but he’s 9,100 on DK and is starting right at me. Wall and Bea have great matchups tonight. I like Dwight for the dirty work too, 6,100 and is due for his 15-15, dare I say 20-20 games?

    Even if Jimmy plays who knows if he will even be engaged.

    9900 so more of a GPP play but he has 60 point upside.

    I’m all in on Scary Terry chalk, but out on Ellington. Just feels thin, and like any of those Miami guards and wings could go off and leave only scraps for the rest.

    Hayward is one of my favorite NBA players, but I don’t see any revenge game narrative. Utah did everything they could to try and keep him – it’s not like he was traded. I think he’s a competitive guy so he gets up for the hometown fans, but I also suspect Utah comes out looking to shut him down.

    Much more interested in stacking Terry/Jaylen/Horford and running it back with Mitchell. I don’t buy the idea that Boston doesn’t keep this close. A blowout is certainly possible, but the Celtics and their coach showed me enough without Kyrie last year that I’m a believer in their ability to get up for tough opponents when they’re short handed.

    Are they playing BKN? Yes. Play the opposing C.
    Are they playing WAS? Yes. Play the opposing PG

    Centers vs Phoenix. Not sure what the hell Horford was doing out there last night though…

  • mr_papageorgio

    If I play anyone from MIA tonight it’s going to be J Rich. He’s expensive but he’s the one that benefits from everyone being out IMO.

  • KindGuy

    It’s Yahoo Cup day!

    Where’s Dirk at? Lol.

  • frugal

    @travvis said...

    Anyone have an opinion on $10 guards on Yahoo? DJ Augustin is well DJ Augustin, but Washington is giving up major points to point guards. Johnson and Ellington for Miami seems like a slow, low scoring game, but I could be wrong. Then there is others like Ross, Crabbe and Monk. I am stuck.

    Yep wrote it up this morning, back on page 2:

    D.J. Augustin $10 – Agustin has hit 1.8X+ 6 games straight and hit 3x+ in 2 of the last 3. Washington has been pretty bad across the board so far this year and has allowed an average of 52.26 FP to PG, 3rd highest. Augustin isn’t a very high usage player, but his good games are typically due to high assists and Washington is allowing the most assists to opponents in the league at 27.1 per game. Augustin has averaged 28.7 minutes the last 5, I like his chances at 3X tonight.

    Wayne Ellington $10 – Ellington absolutely killed last game, so this is a bit of point chasing scenario. But the injury scenario in MIA got him a start last game. Indiana is top 10 in opponent points from 3’s and is 9th in FP vs SG. Ellington is a prototypical 3 and D wing and if the injury scenario is the same (right now Wade and Jones doubtful, Dragic questionable), he’s likely in line for big minutes again and is worth a look.

    Those are my favs, but also worth consideration: Johnson, Ross, Lin and if you have a couple extra dollars Ish.

    Standings are based on net winnings, so joining late or missing occasional days will not penalize you.

    I love Ellington. He has the greenest of all lights to let it fly. If he’s on, like against SA, he’s 6/10 from deep. He’s gonna get his shots, just don’t know what’ll come from them. Still think he’s WAY too cheap for 37 minutes of catch and shoot running off screens. It’s like getting Redick 1,500 off tonight.

  • Idontknow

    Josh Richardson is only $7600 on FD which I feel is underpriced given the situation. Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t they play around with JRich running point forward the past few times Dragic has been out?

    I know Winslow played point forward with dragic out the first game. Career high 8 dimes after preaching to Spoelstra in the off-season that he could dish lol.

    Not sure what the hell Horford was doing out there last night though…

    Bruh, that killed me. I was so certain he was going to at least get a 40 spot barring a blowout. I didn’t watch the game. Anyone see what was going on? Did Ayton just own him?

    Except for C so far this year — though not sure about the adjusted dvp numbers. Is anybody worried about Drummond?
