    Anyone else like to play GPP only on small slates since the variance is so high?

    I like Lowry but Charlotte plays pretty good D. Does anyone think he is a good Tourney play?

  • HammysWorld

    With such a small slate, I’m tempted to use my H2H lineups for GPP as well, the H2H will come down to 1 or 2 guys that make the difference, similar to the GPP.

    This may be the only night I ever roster Hibbert.

  • Cardiac555

    Can’t decide if I love or hate these small slates. Makes me want to put in some ridiculous LUs in smaller GPP’s since the “obvious” plays will be so highly owned.

    hate them :( Swept my H2H last night, H2H is so much harder with 3-4 games

    Will Dwight’s game be affected now that he publicly said he hate playing with Harden??

  • Beevsbee

    I think i might pass on playing tonight or maybe one entry LB KD KOBE RUSS Harden…Cmon now…

  • cjk3314

    Dwight Howard being “unhappy” is just rumors. According to Howard, its “noise”

    Early gut feelings tell me Westbrook/James shoot out tonight. Prob going to build around them

    That’s my strategy too. Build around them with plenty of value and high upside players I think is the best play for tonight.

    Houston loses to the Lakers 91-84 tonight. All in on Tor/Char!

  • bmann

    Hopefully we’ll have clarity on Hairston and Batum after shootaround. Really would open up quite a bit.

    I’d bet the Over… these are 2 of the worst defensive teams in the league and they play fast ball. This game will simply depend on shoot percentage and Kobe Bryant is shooting better as of late.

  • dp33071

    is there something going on with those two?

  • dominicanpapi

    I’m almost tempted to play Kobe. Almost, he’s at the 3 and Houston is terrible are guarding 3s. They’re also terrible at guarding shooting guards so you could make the argument to stack Kobe and Lou in one lineup.

    Have you seen the Cavs this season? They slow teams down big time, look at the 2H of the Celtics game

    The thing that stinks on FD is that Kobe and Lou are both 2’s and I just can’t justify not putting the beard in a lineup.

    I’ve watched my fair share of every team this year. I’m not all that excited about the Cavs/ Thunder game personally. I was just giving some stats for people to check out.

    I’m taking the night off…I need it after last night.

    Hard to tell. If kid is guarding lebron and he hits some shots then kd will want to come right back at him. You may be right thou

  • dominicanpapi

    This OKC-Cleveland game has all the makings of a 115-110 type game but it’ll end up being 95-87. I’d say Harden is the top play, then Russ (Delly isn’t going to stop him), Lebron, and KD.
