    Ask yourself how many times have you seen a 5.5 spread ending with a 15 point spread to 20 point spread at the end of the game.

    Mexico City, wonder who will be out by lock with the stomach bug

    ah. Ok. Thanks. Didn’t play NBA yesterday so off the grid for a bit with what is going on. Off today so I’ll have some lus. With the altitude there, maybe less minutes for guys possibly.

    for those in the league yesterday on FD the contests are set to go everyday of the week. 4/12 filled and 2/10 filled so far.

    Punts of the day for me even in my cash lineup is Joe Harris and Troy Daniels (i liked daniels before i saw rotowire has him listed as the starter).

    Ulis likely runs the Suns now with Booker out? Previous games he just dribbled up the court and threw the ball to Booker.

    I don’t think Warren is in a great spot with Otto draped all over him. Markieff is back in PHX vs Chriss and Bender. That is appealing.

    I agree, TJW trap play of the night with his salary on both sites. A ullis/daniels combo is a good way to go from TJW/PHO center

    Full on fade of RWB. Altitude is over 7K feet, 2K more than Denver.

    Lol….. rwb has the craziest Moter in the nba. He’s good.

    I would agree if he was priced up even a little bit. Fd he’s like 1600 more so fd for sure. DK he’s cheap af.

    Pretty decent value for a 4-game slate. Trick is going to be picking the right low-priced Suns and Nets to go with a couple studs. And the Utah backcourt could yield more value if those Hood/Neto injuries are still lingering.

    I also like Saric for his price on DK — and my favorite home/road split freak of nature Ryan Anderson is in play, too.

    Saric is GTD with cornea abrasion. My son gave me one of those before… saw a line across my eye for weeks and nothing but blurred vision the whole time. For my tournament lineup i’m rolling Amir Johnson. I think Dario sits or is impacted by that tonight.

    To play or not to play Harden, Westbrook, in a LU. It’s always been said that on a small slate that you just have to play RWB.

    We know that Ben Simmons and Joel Embid will appear in LUs tonight. But dang Embid is 10k 👀

    Last time Harden played against the Jazz he dropped 83.5 DKpts and 56 real life points, will he do that again playing in Utah? If I recall Mitchell and Burks didn’t play that game either, does that change anything?

    With Ryan Anderson Questionable if he doesn’t play is Eric Gordon a good pick up in some LUs?
    Will PG13 give us another dud or will he show up tonight?

    Beal gonna go off again tonight? I mean it is his team til wall comes back

    Yea I just follow the NBA social media accounts and it showed them having fun in Mexico and showing that the NBA cares

    I just don’t like a more aggressive TJW. When he’s overly aggressive things never seem to go well for him. I think TJW will be highly owned not just because of booker but because people will see his @ WAS stat line and say well he has to match that tonight without Devin Booker. My game of focus is going to be LAL/PHI for cash and tournament.On todays slate with the match ups i’m not saying fade RWB, James Harden or TJW (different class) But there’s players that can perform well below there prices that could match their fpt output. Today is MUCHHHHHHH better than Tuesday’s crazy looking slate.

    Mitchells D changes a lot i think.
    00% on Chris paul (but i have one cash, one tournament lineup)
    I cant chase the Beal/TJW thing.. i just cant. Not with that LAL/PHI game right ahead of it.

    have to fill up coffee and finish the blog :)

    JaKarr Sampson baby! lol sorry had to.

    I have no idea what this means, but I don’t care how well conditioned you are, that altitude will affect you. On a slate with several other studs he is an easy fade for me.

    It’ll affect both teams making it a even playing field!

    Both leagues are full so I started a 3rd one. The first two filled really fast yesterday (didn’t know FD only allows 20 member leagues?) I sent you an invite though.

    Was loving that first letter J and ends N play, a game that was suppose to be a blowout and Sampson and ZBo came to play

    Would love to play Westbrook. That’s a shit ton of salary though.

    But folks gonna tell ya you can’t fade him in a slate like this

  • dominicanpapi

    The thinnest positions in my view are point guard and power forward, so I think that’s where you can spend up. Fanduel basically priced Embiid/Simmons/Harden/Russ in a way where you can only realistically fit two guys.

    usually would be the case when there is only 1 stud like that. harden & simmons and even embiid are capable of matching his pts

  • 7klub06

    Well Simmons/Harden/Embid stack looks like a easy fit on DK. Just have to hope the rest of the low priced picks play ou

    This. You may need Westbrook if he’s the stud that outscores the rest by a wide margin, or you may not, if he isn’t. Harden likes playing Utah. Embiid and Simmons seem to like playing the Lakers from the one game sample size we have. Lots of ways to go. Not a bad slate for a 4 gamer.
