    Yeah, seems like a nice spot to pivot to CJ or Melo for the Blazers production from what I see.

    Like CJ for the bounce back game tonight

    Is Dame really in a better spot than Kemba, Jrue, or Lavine?

    Dame’s floor on a bad night is 45-50. Those guys have higher chance to bust then hit 50 IMO. Not to mention Dame’s ceiling is wayyy higher than any of those guys. POR still fighting for their playoff life. With Kemba and a fully healthy Celtics squad, I’ll have shares but nothing too crazyy. Jrue is hit or miss tonight is a good spot though. Lavine is basically priced into his ceiling, I’ll have shares but nothing too crazyy. I still think Dames price is fine nothing too crazy.

    I’ve got 20 in FD Lottery today, 19 of them currently have Dame. I think he has a floor of 50, highest total, they’re projected to lose, the bench includes studs like Trent, Simons, Swanigan, Gabriel, Hoard, and Moses Brown. If I was doing more lineups I’d obviously have less exposure to dame but why not take a stand if you’re not max entering?

    Real question for me right now is if all of my lineups will have 4 blazers or just most of them.

    I won’t have any lillard tonight . Either Westbrook or kemba (more on fd ) ot leging down further . Don’t mind Ball if Ingram out

  • monarch

    I like Melo here 4900. I wonder if they put Whiteside on Zion and Melo on Favors. That actually makes the most sense.

  • lwilly

    DeMar DeRozan (back) doubtful Tuesday.

  • Packapunch

    POR ranks last in DFS points allowed to bigs. Why isn’t anyone talking about Zion? Limited minutes? He should get 28-30 tonight.

    I bet Derrick White gets a lot of minutes

    Because we’re all sick of hearing about how “this is the Zion breakout game” and then it never happens and he just keeps putting up the same production, which now he’s overpriced for. Or that’s just me.

    My most used PF on fd . Not as much a fan on dk

    Derrick White is good, Lonnie Walker is where I’m going to be heavier on DK. This is a night where value is kinda weird and there’s tons of studs. I’m a sucker for min-priced guys, but things line up pretty well for him today.

    Walker already played 27 minutes yesterday. Of the players that play I think White would be best positioned to pick up additional minutes/usage based on the situation of this particular game with price factored into the equation.

    I agree his ceiling is higher, but Dame literally just had B2B games of 39.4 and 37.5 Yahoo/FD scoring so his observed floor isn’t near as high as you are projecting. The question becomes is this more likely a ceiling game for Dame than the other guys I mentioned. Kemba I can absolutely buy into your argument as usage gets spread out. Jrue, sure. can be inconsistent. Lavine’s observed ceiling is 60+ and has the absolute best matchup he can have.

    Yeah agree on the SA guards. Walker, Murray, Mills, White. 1 of them will be in the winning LU, just hard trying to figure out who. I hate pop too…he could get weird.

  • casper

    Sato revenge ?

  • monarch

    I also dont make a habit of picking anyone vs Luguentz Dort and I project that to be Lonnie Walker IV

    Not sure how many minutes Walker played yesterday matters when he’s a young dude. Agree though that White is solid. Him and Mills both played less minutes than usual yesterday, so either or both could get good run. Murray played 33 yesterday, which is like a record for him, so he could easily scale back to that 24-25 range today.

    Yep, he’s a rookie and it’s kinda showing. Doesn’t rebound particularly well, can’t hit a 3, turns the ball over a ton. Seems like a real fun guy to watch waiting for that spectacular dunk but he just hasn’t really shown much of a fantasy upside.

    And Belinelli played 19 which means he probably needs a month off.

    In regard to Walker. I’m not projecting him above 27 minutes. I believe and I bet even you would agree…that White probably closes the eight minute gap from yesterday.

    I think many will go to Murray but I agree minutes are likely to get scaled back . Hence the other guards are the target
