    Lol. I’m just starting to work on the slate but I had this exact same thought this morning. Old habits die hard lol.

    HAHA man I am telling you, it’s like I watched the game the other night and I was just shocked at how involved in the offense Gasol was. The you have Schroder taking his turns running things as well. So I was like I can’t keep playing this dude with all these other guys getting involved. In prior years it was Bron and Ad with KCP, Green and Javale running around for 15 minutes. Nobody really touched the ball much except AD and Bron. Now Gasol is facilitating from the top of the key some possessions and then Schroder takes his turn. So logic tells you, naw stay away from this squad for the time being, just too many mouths too feed. Then we remember this is AD we are talking about, highest celling outside of Harden in basketball. I JUST CANT STOP IT!

    Sure I was able to make 50-70k a year in NBA DFS when you knew who was playing, it seems that the NBA and it’s players take for granted how much DFS has contributed to the popularity of the sport. Is it that hard for us to have lineups and who is in or out by 6pm EST? They seem to want to make it harder for people to like and watch the sport. Sure for people with regular jobs it’s tough to keep up with all of the news.

    Might take a flyer on guys like Iguodala and Avery Bradley as well.

    Andre is a 16-game player.

    Very good point. Not a guy to count on during the regular season. Kind of like Draymond nowadays (oops, did I say that out loud).

    Who’s going to have the good game tonight between Hunter and Hueter?

    Off topic, was anyone else shocked to hear about “Papi”?

    It’s hard for everyone champ, just another piece to the puzzle. Figure it out or don’t play

    who?

  • Yeoman

    Starting my lineup with JVal. Anytime Tyus gets a start I play his center. He’s spent his entire career, back to AAU with Okafor, feeding the low block.

    Yes high ceiling and Stevens kinda concedes 1v1 to the center plus Time Lord, Theis and Grant Williams are kinda screwed in this matchup.

    Morant’s all about the lob. Tyus gets you the ball on your hip right on time for your drop step. That suits Valanciunas a lot better.

    Tyus himself is priced a bit high for as little usage as he takes, though I’ll bet he gets a nice assist haul.

    I’m kinda liking Derrick Jones at $3,700. He’s getting the minutes.

    I googled Papi and I must say I am more interested in the new vegan plant based restaurant Papi opening in Portland than this nonesense, which is saying a lot.

    Am I that out of touch? I didn’t even know who anyone in that article was.

    From a big sample of 398.2 minutes last season when Tyus was on the court alongside J-Val, Jonas has +0.9% usage and +0.96 fpts per 36 mins (aka a game’s worth). In a small 40 minutes sample this season, J-Val is doing worse.

    edit: if it wasn’t clear, my point is that J-Val doesn’t benefit. +1 fp per game is noisy data / margin of error. He’s not +2 or +4 fppg.

    I just assumed it had something to do with Oubre .. when I saw LeBatard’s name in the link I just moved on

    Morris still out for the Clips, Kawhi still questionable _

  • nerman

    The only research I want to do today is know who the Reaper has? Come on, let us know, pal?!? Who are you taking out today?

    Also, I share a birthday with Lebron James AND Tiger Woods today. Let’s F’n Go!

    Same here. I thought it was Big Papi from the Red Sox

    NBA is a terrible game with wimpy players. NBA DFS is impossible to win at. That being said, I’m pumped for the slate tonight!

    good luck everybody!

    Back in the 80’s, we would do cocaine with the players and DFS was done on the same paper. We paid each other in blood, and never stopped competing.
