    also I don’t see how you fade Giannis on FD… it makes zero sense.

    OU-BRE seems a little pricey. Not sure. Just ran a CourtIQ on him actually with Baynes, Carter, Diallo, and Bridges off the floor. It’s not good.

    Did you do that without Ayton too? When I ran it, I see that Oubre actually gets the highest boost usage and fantasy points/min wise, unless I did something wrong. He’s actually second-highest usage after Booker. If that is the case, I think he’s a sneaky good play. He’s at that price where people will look at him and say “nah”, but he has proven that he has 50 point upside, so he’s a great leverage play off of Booker in my humble opinion. I will definitely take my chances a bunch with him tonight.

    Is pairing Brooks and Bowman together a bad idea? If so, would you rather have Burks or save some money and go with bowman?

    I ran one with the projected starting lineup if Baynes sits and he has around a 25% usage rate with 0.94 FPPM.

    I currently have bowman Burks and paschall

    The play from Pho is….

    Yep..Will Farrell…always in play πŸ˜‰

    However, if he goes the play from Pho is….

    Yep…Tom Hardy…always a solid choice πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ€πŸ”₯🍻

    Yeah, I have no idea what you did versus what I did. Did you include last season or something? He already had a high usage rate and a 1% boost is of no consequence really. His FPPM went down with how I ran it.

    We locking in rolo?

    Nope..look at Clarke’s minutes..plays 18 to 25 that’s what you can assume from Bruno. JVal being out solidifies him at roughly 25 to 35.

    not locking, but obviously he’s an amazing play.

    For clarity, it’s pretty much him or Embiid for me, and then I’ll try to get a bunch of Jval if he’s trending towards in. But Rolo will easily be my highest owned center.

    We can assume Jaren Jackson Jr gets a longer run provided he has no foul trouble

    I’m just rotating him w/Burks or GR 3, doesn’t make sense to fade him.

    or if he even plays, apparently he got hurt last game

    Again, I could be doing it wrong, but I didn’t do anything special. I just took off those players. Didn’t put in any special dates or anything. In any case, I still think, at that price, he’s a nice mid-range gamble play that could pay off big tonight.

  • captainwacky

    I think Oubre is an excellent play. This game environment should suit him well, and the minutes behind him are getting more hurt and sick as we speak. Add to that he’s pretty much a big shooting guard on offense, and the Hornets have no one who can guard those…

    Shaping up to be one of those eat the chalk kinda nights.

    I feel like there is so much chalk that it will spread ownership around a little

    I’m really only playing on Yahoo tonight for NBA so i’m basing this on Yahoo pricing, but I got burned the other day when I went after Giannis and he put up 44 FPTs. My value plays were fine but because Giannis didn’t pay off it wasn’t necessary. I feel like its a similar situation today.

    DSJ seems like the trap to end all traps to me.
