    I think on DK Drummond is too cheap and due to smash.

    Embiid owns Drummonds soul.

    Does Shumpert get extra minutes versus Cleveland.

    Does George Hill gets extra minutes versus Sacramento?

    Somebody had a birthday yesterday…what better way to celebrate then balling vs the Warriors on national TV tonight?

  • monarch

    Hield had 30 DK points in 18 mins last game. I’m locking him up vs whoever on Cleveland.

    You think he outscores Bogdan? I have enough to go up to hield but I liked bogdan more because of his peripherals.

    I haven’t looked at it that deeply. Bogdan gets a better matchup vs the likes of Clarkson and Burks…that’s a tough call. Hield has been up as high as 49DK this season, not sure if Bogdan can get that ceiling off the bench.

    Who on the Lakers will pick up most of Ingram’s minutes? Hart or KCP?

    Yeah and after Embiid said he sucked last game, you know he is going to come out angry. He could drop an 80 burger cause he is going to want to put the team on his shoulders.

    I’m glad this was brought up. This was my first thought when looking at Embiid, but I’m a little worried about why he sucked. This year is the most minutes he’s played up to this point in a season, and I’m a little concerned that he’s getting a little gassed here recently.

    So far he’s played 892 mins, averaging 34.3 mpg. That’s 106 more mins than the entire ’16-‘17 season, and he’s on pace to have 912 more minutes than last year, where he averaged 30.3 mpg. I love seeing him healthy and playing, but I do think he might have to rest a game or two at some point this season to keep his legs fresh. Embiid will attract a lot of attention against Drummond, and rightfully so, but I’m not sure if he will be as fresh as he was in previous games against DET.

    Come on Panda…

    He’s been under 34 FPS in 3 of the last 4 against Embiid.

    If you’re making tons of lineups, throw him in. But Embiid can get him in foul trouble quickly.

  • Benf15harp

    Embiid/Drummond get ejected tonight
    Book it lmao

    Both will probably play around 30. Flip a coin.

    Embiid got off to a fantastic start. His recent performances are more in line with what he did last year though. Embiid was never a 60+ FP producer at the frequency he was at the start of the season. I think he’s more returning to his mean as opposed to getting fatigued or anything of that nature.

    Safe to say this is a Klay day? Super fast, I think the Bucks lose track of Klay often tonight.

    Except Hart is significantly more productive with his minutes

    Nah.. 2 of his last 3. Yes one of them he got into foul trouble.

    Embiid is a large child. He has done absolutely nothing to suggest he owns any piece of Drummond. We all know Drummond has a knack for occasionally getting into foul trouble. He’s done it against much lesser centers then Embiid. That last game that resulted in Embiid talking extra trash the whole Pistons team looked like garbage. It was a road afternoon game. Odd start time. As a Pistons fan I can tell you they rarely ever play afternoon games at all and always absolutely suck in them. They also got blown out by Charlotte of all teams in an afternoon game a week later. Bad set up. Tonight is a normal start time, normal game, at home. It’ll be much different.

    He’ll be in my pool too. Only concern is a blowout. I had him last game and was looking great until he only played 18 minutes.

    Klay should roast the Bucks. They’re awful against 2 guards and defending the 3-point line. Issue is on DK the price, especially in comparison to other options. This could definitely be one of those 50 spots though.

    Thanks. He fits what I’m looking for tonight so far. One value and seven mid range guys with ceiling. Unfortunately, its nearly impossible to get those seven right and usually safer to pay for Giannis/RWB and start punting.

    We shall see Mr. Panda…

  • Wooden_Bones

    Do Griffin and Drummond work well as a stack? I see they have a negative correlation with each other, which leads me to believe the answer is no.

  • Ace15

    Tyreke night just to troll all of us. Fournier looks interesting as well, stars and scrubs night with all the value out there.

  • rgrinders34

    its real tough to pay up for any center other than Thompson vs. SAC tonight.

    Well it’s also technically just his 3rd season, he should still be very much in the improving stage of his career so the increase in production could be real.

    perfect pivot off the CHALKY bam is j Val vs. Brooklyn at way less than half the ownership
