    I’d rather have Taurean Prince. So far Bagley is only backing up Richaun Holmes so his minutes have been capped

    Yeah…IMHO playing a guy from the late game just to have them is as stupid as stacking the first game for no other reason than it’s the first game. Just play the highest upside guys in the best spots, don’t overthink things.

    Whatever floats the boat. I am making sure I have exposure to the Suns/Clippers game even though I am fearing a blowout. But it might be competitive if Beverley and Lou are out again hence why I mentioned PG-13 and Kawhi. I think Mikal Bridges is a lock from that game too.

    If those guys are out, we will just see a lot of Iso Kawhi and Iso George like last time against Minnesota. I think PG has shown greater upside lately even though he’s priced a bit less. Phoenix is very similar to Minnesota when it comes to total FPTs allowed.

    I think Trae Young is about to blow Madison Square Garden apart with a 50 piece. Heard it here first.

    FWIW, the 2 tournaments I’ve won on Yahoo this year, neither had a player form the late game. Went to bed in first place, woke up in first place.

    50 FPTS? or 50 real points?

    The first one would be a fade at his price.

    I have some interest in George on Yahoo based on price and matchup and potential injuries. And some in Bridges for the same reasons. Neither having anything to do with the time of tip.

    I think I will do an early night hammer and then hope all the other games have leaky roofs.

    One time I had a game stack of the first game. I was winning 10k for about 30 minutes.

  • superstars92

    DeAndre Ayton hurts all the Suns because he just posts up a lot.

  • monarch

    Trae we bad vs the Knicks last year for whatever reason. And in narrative filled Madison Square Garden? 36 and 27 DK points. You could combine those efforts and it probably wouldn’t be necessary tonight at his price

    Why? It’s been gaining steam the last 2 or 3 years.The current 2-way deals play right into that type of system. The 3rd round would essentially be a “farm” round deal with even stricter limitations, no increase in active roster sizes.

    Because they have bargained for reducing the number of years in the draft forever. It used to be like 16 rounds. They prefer that players be free agents. The owners have been able to keep the current system in place with two rounds for the last several negotiations for competitive balance reasons.

    They are now also trying to unionize the G league. I’m sure they will try to limit the size of the G-league draft as well.

    I believe the Suns/Clippers game stays somewhat close. Especially if the Clippers guys are out. I think Rubio, Bridges, Oubre, Saric, Ayton is still a solid lineup.

    High usage guys on both sides are in play IMO, Minnesota blew them up for 117 points, so they lose quite a bit of defense with so many injuries.

    There’s not even a point in having more than 2 rounds. Most 2nd rounders don’t even make it past 2-3 years, some don’t even get signed at all. If there were 3 rounds, you would just have more of these guys so I think it’s better they play them in summer league and then teams can bid on the good ones (like Paschall).

    Trae Young 60 real points you heard it here first.

    I can’t believe Lonzo is chalk tonight

    There is a better play tonight that rhymes with Lonzo

  • superstars92

    So interesting, Vuc may not be as high owned as I expected at first….now he becomes more interesting of a choice. I guess his ceiling isn’t high but his floor is so high for that price.

    He would become a really good play. I’d have to see how many Lakers I’d feel comfortable playing with Rondo as my third favorite Laker

    I’m seeing 12 percent

    Who rhymes with Lonzo besides Alfonzo “all I do is win Championships” McKinnie?

    AD news changes a lot. I’m hoping he plays, show all the Lakers he’s a tough cookie.

    I would play Javale and Rondo. I don’t think LeBron is necessary tonight as you have PG and Kawhi with similar ceilings.

    Ronzo Mall

    He invented the mall.

    LeBron would have a 60 point floor if AD sits
