    does the kuzma madness continue tonight? what do people think

    I think Kuzma (With starter minutes) is an 8K player

    Nice chalk one up to the “Underdog”. I’m really not afraid to match up with those guys when they can only enter under 3 lineups.

  • zigger77

    So this Miami backcourt has fuckin NOBODY. Waiters got hurt last night. There’s legit j rich, Tyler, Ellington, and Derrick Walton jr to play 144 minutes. I don’t see how Tyler/jrich DONT play 40 then Ellington 38 and you STILL have 30 for Derrick Walton jr.

    Don’t see why not. Portland defense doesn’t scare me. Love so many Lakers tonight.

    I think he’s getting 40 minutes per night with brook out, so he’s always a strong play with those minutes. However, now he gets the pleasure of Aminu defense. I was all over Aminu last night to my dismay, yet kuzma is ranked dead last in DPRM, and I’m going back to the proverbial well with Aminu for 5200. He should be relatively unowne and has 40 point upside.

  • miggs6876

    @Njsum1 said...

    If Kemba is out, which seems unlikely, I’ll just play MCW, he’s 3300, what could go wrong…haha. But seriously that’s a great price if Kemba is out.

    I’d add Marvin Williams to the guys to target on Charlotte.

    Just like he had draymond D last night. One day his shot is bound to be off tho. Dray did do a good job ball denying at times.

    51.3 FD points last night for $6.8k and his price hasn’t budged, so yeah, I’m all over him again.

    Just hope the Blazers can make it a game, Lakers are on fire right now…

    That’s what I said earlier…the heat have to be your core, guaranteed minutes and points against the worse defense fantasy wise…this will be the third game I am on them and they have been profitable nights.. Richardson was 9% two games ago, then 16% last night. The other players have been even less owned. Last night I had Richardson and Kuz on 12/15 teams and had RWB and Harden on 9 of the 12 with them with one or other on the rest. tonight I may lock in RWB, Kat, Rich and Kuz on all 15. I am hoping to hear jokic minutes as if he has no limit then will take him over Kat. Also thinking Nurkic tonight after his dud will be sub 5%.

    Aminu def isn’t scaring me off kuzma, as I said 40 minutes for 6800 would be a bargain against Bill Russell. I just like Aminu tonight as well as kuzma is literally the worst defender in the league at the pf position according to espn.

    There were numerous people here yesterday saying don’t play Kuzma because Draymond was in. I’m not falling for that shit again

    Aminu defense doesn’t scare me. Have you been watching this guy play. He is the younger version of Lou Williams. Natural scorer if you ask me. Sure he is going to regress at some point. I don’t know how you don’t ride him at 6.8k. I’ll take my chances.

    You can’t trust nurkic, he’s a couple lineup type player at best IMO. He never gets consistent minutes. He’ll come out and put up 20dk in the first quarter, then finish the game with 25. But if ur feeling it, go with it.

    Last night I had like 40% of tyler/jrich I think because it was a bad matchup pace wise and dal was playing quite a bit better defensively lately. But tonight they get NO has legit been a bottom 3 defensive team as of late. And they play at a high pace. The one weird thing is the olynk was limited insanely last night and got 25 minutes and then you got bam playing 38 minutes which is GREAT if it happens again but Im not sure why it did.

    Plus KCP is stuck in CA again. Doesn’t effect his minutes per say, but does give a little usage insurance. If anybody is on the fence.

  • miggs6876

    I like Jokic tonight but I’m concerned about a blowout. Any thoughts?

  • dlogreen

    Anyone got the cajones to play Wall tonight?

  • miggs6876

    I’m thinking about playing 4 Lakers tonight.

    The most impressive thing for me is how he always seems to score differently. Step back or mid range or a different kind of layup.

    Back to Back game minutes are always dicey. Keeping Olynyk fresh for the back end.
