    Yes like before. Monroe will get 15-12 mins at C, Boucher will get 8 to 10 maybe, and Siakam will fill the rest at the 5 position, splitting at PF. They will have to run small without J-Val, Serge and Kawhi.

    I hate playing Embiid when butler is in , but he could be in for a big game due to who Toronto has available to run at the 5

    I think I need to limit my exposure to this slate. :)

  • draggin49

    Anyone using gordon with cp3 out? Or maybe go cheaper and using Gerald green?
    I’m trying to remember, was Gordon better playing with cp3 and harden out or with cp3 playing with harden?

    Gordon on average is worse on the floor with Harden but has opposite days where he smashes. I don’t like his price on DK but on Yahoo is safe.

    Hard not to like Monroe at 4300. They have basically him and Boucher the 37 minutes Embiid is on the floor.

    Anyone get some Santa Slam e-mails? Have won a few tickets to the $44 Santa Slam but receiving e-mails on a $12.25 entry.

    That was where i was looking too. Isn’t Siakam undersized compared to embiid ? Monroe seems like a more even matchup as far as size /weight

    Ugh do I dare use olynyk 🤢
    He seems like he could better guard brolo who camps at the 3 pt line

  • captainwacky

    I’m going to keep taking shots on Monroe. They’re going to need his size if the game is remotely competitive, and he’s due for some blowout run if not. Obviously the matchup with Embiid is bad, but he’s super cheap and I dare him to foul out in less time than he would make value if they’re going to play him. Boucher and Siakam each way like 200 lbs, so…. not going to cut it guarding Embiid.

  • pjbyrne707

    with brogdon out who’s the start? Hill, Snell, Connaughton, or Sterling Brown?

    Siakam is too valuable a defender to waste him fouling out on Embiid. They need him on Simmons and pushing the ball in runouts. He could start at center because Embiid usually plays a really short first stint but I think Moose gets 25+ center minutes in this scenario.

    I agree, along with about 5 other reasons why it isn’t likely to work by putting Siakam there. This game does have a lot of weird outcomes though, so I’m going to try to cover a few of them.

    Had to know you’d target GS and Klay hahaha ;)

    Klay is in a solid spot, and he’s free on dk. Lots of ranges of outcomes, yet the price and matchup makes him worth some exposure.

    Maybe it had something to do with me saying I was gonna smack whoever says something about Ariza and revenge?

    haha!

    Interesting. The price is why I’m hesitant with Klay on DK.

    6400 is pretty cheap for Klay, especially since he has oddly been contributing in other areas besides points. and he’s usually better at home. Still he’s a variance machine so Ill have some yet not a ton.
