    Doesnt mean im putting Harden in every LU but i will have exposure to him. Beal, Book and SGA are good pivots off him and can all go for 40+.

    You want more than 40+ at those prices on DK. Book is almost 10k.

    Front end of a back to back for some teams today. The knicks are one of them.

    For a lot of teams, actually – this is a really good point and something to monitor for teams with older dudes or unsure rotations; there might be some minutes dilution.

  • rstylz

    safe to say Dort gets 34-36 minutes?

  • Irisheric777

    Anyone have dort going off

    i have way too much dort

  • donkeydealer

    Hopefully Dort has his shot falling tonight. Excited to see what he does now that everyone else is gone. Cant believe Maledon isn’t on DK. Kid will be a must play halfway into the season

  • noddy

    No Dort for me. I don’t think he gets to 30+ on DK which you would probably need from him to win a GPP.

  • yanksfan1

    Where are you guys on S. Brown vs G. Hill?

    I think Maledon is out today anyway.

    Definitely noteworthy, though if any coach doesn’t care about B2Bs, it’s Thibs

    Brown pretty easily for me. The thunder don’t really have any incentive to push hill, and SGA should be dominating the usage alongside him. That being said, Charlotte can’t guard anyone, so I like all the Thunder.

    Thibs wrote a memo to the NBA office requesting a 72 day season.

    Something doesn’t compute here.

    I’m wondering if the Blazers are hiding an injury.
    How long did it take before we found out CJ was playing with a spinal fracture or whatever it was?

  • chronoxiong

    Okay, my dilemma tonight is about Harden. He was looking fat and was clearly unmotivated during the preseason. Just because they are going to be short handed tonight, who’s to say that he will be motivated tonight? He can just half ass his way through the whole game so he wont get fined. He’s 11k on FD which is very steep. If he barely gets you 50 fdp, thats not worth it at all. My current dummy lineup has me fading Harden with me “trusting” Derozan against his former team. Speaking of Derozan, I noticed that their guard heavy lineup played a ton of minutes the other night. I might have to roster some of them before they all hit the 5k-6k range someday.

  • Njsum1

    I got 8 lineups tonight 5/6 will have Harden

    IMO….If Harden wants out of Houston, he’s going to have to play well, as the Rockets have gotten trade offers, just nothing that wowed them.

    I’d guess Harden knows he’s going to have to make teams want to WOW the Rockets with offers, half assing it, isn’t the way to get that done.

    Still there is some concern, so I’ll make a few lineups without him

    I changed my mind.

    Nurk is an interesting one off on DK

    I will probably have the same exposure in 100 lineups :)

  • captainwacky

    I usually get pretty locked into ‘Jam everything in’ mode for spots like these, but because we’re dealing with an unknown circumstance in Harden and this roster, I won’t just blindly be at 100 percent. Probably 80 percent, and I’m even going out of my way to fade Wood in certain lineups where I build as though they completely implode.

  • mbunner23

    The big one for me is Buddy Hield or Gordon Hayward on DK. Buddy played 41 min and doesn’t have Bogy breathing down his neck anymore, Gordon looked good against Cleveland.

  • monarch

    I dont think anyone who has ever watched basketball needs to see James Harden score 60+ DK points tonight to make an evaluation if he is a worthwhile trade target, especially NBA general managers. Everyone knows his game.

  • noddy

    My favorite play tonight is SGA.

  • frugal

    Ok, finished pending news, I ended up going ~50% Harden, just don’t trust he’s going to be out there for 40 minutes giving his all tonight like he would’ve in a similar scenario last season. More exposure to House and Wood than Harden.

    Outside that, I have a good deal of exposure to ORL and I think the CHA/OKA 217.5 total is wrong and this game ends up being 1 of the highest of the night.

  • monarch

    I think the Rockets are moving on from him. He has been disrespectful to incoming coach Silas. They are committed to Christian Wood above Harden IMO. Harden could do great tonight, thats what he does but I bet if you asked the Rockets they would rather not have to play him.
