    My man Isaac has met or exceeded DK value in eight consecutive contests and barely gets a price bump.

    I’m off today so sorry for the extra observations but when Jeremy Lin does not play…Trae usually goes off and Collins (highly correlated) always goes off.

    Collins has been so bad lately. But I really love the match up for him tonight, so I’m probably playing him.

    Start with Rozier, and run it back with Embiid

    Donovan as your late night hammer.

  • Donnyleonard

    Do we like Ross better than Fournier today since Fournier may be matched up with Holiday a bit more than Ross?

    Start with Rozier

  • depalma13

    Start with Isaac and Kuzma and build from there.

  • monarch

    For a five game slate there are a TON of plays today. I’m going through LineupIQ this morning and having a hard time excluding players. Marcus Morris, Jae Crowder guards like Bembry/Bazemore get a bump. The list goes on and on. No need to punt too hard today….NVM on Bembry….he sucks lately

    feel the same way running it back with mcgee as well for 4800 on dk

    I know most peopole don’t like narratives but “revenge” spot for Gobert? I mean the Warriors publicly made fun of him for crying!

    Yes…he is a strong play regardless vs the Warriors…throw Crowder and Rubio in there with him and run it back with KD

    oh yeah I forgot about that! Gobert may squash Draymond like a bug tonight.

    any gs whispers in here is durant worth paying up for

    More likely they get into a fight and both are ejected minutes into the game.

    wouldn’t be the first time they’ve both burned us like that

    LeBron will be popular as always but look at the Hawks roster and try and identify anyone who can guard him.

    Look at the Hawks roster and identify anyone who can guard anyone at any position lol.

    i like this, does this also make bembry a good play at the min on FD? he’s the only one that can play backup pg. Not sure I’ll get collins in, really liking kuzma/marcus morris

    prince is solid

    Agree….Dedmon, Len, Bazemore and Huerter are respectable at the two and five spots but LeBron will be going against Prince, Bembry, Collins and Spellman if he is playing the three and four. Those are their worst defenders.

    Iā€™m going through LineupIQ this morning and having a hard time excluding players.

    My advice for any sport if you are using lineup HQ…

    Step 1: Buy a whistle.

    Step 2: Blow the whistle and yell “Code Brown”. Remember when we were kids and you heard this? It means someone crapped in the pool and everyone’s gotta get out.

    Step 3: You heard the lady, exclude EVERYONE from your player pool.

    Step 4: Start adding the players you LOVE into your player pool.

    Step 5: See how the players you LOVE fit together nd build your core from there.

    Step 6: Start surrounding the players you LOVE with the studs/value you LIKE for the day.

    This will help you avoid doing something stupid like building your core around Chasson Randle, Karl Anthony Towns, etc… and will help you still have a decent night when those guys dont come through….

    The problem with starting with everyone in the player pool and trying to EXCLUDE guys is that you are only eliminating the same idiots everyone else is.

    You keep looking at names like Jae Crowder and you’re like “Hmmmm, he COULD get 34 FPS and be in the winning lineup, I probably shouldn’t exclude him”.

    Well when all you have is a hammer everything starts to look like a nail. Similarly When all you have is 108 players in your pool, everyone looks like a potential winner.

    This reminds me of poker in that everyone thinks the best players got rich by taking down huge pots with crazy cards. The reality is they got rich by folding more often than you do. They played the premium hands and small edges added up overtime. Much like you should be playing the premium plays each evening and grinding out small wins until finally the stars align and the lineup hits yahtzee.

    Great lineups aren’t made by putting kadeem allen in all 150 lineups. They are made by building a great core and then surrounding it with under the radar guys like kadeem allen.

    I’m worried about a blowout and Lebron won’t see much of the 4th

    Well, Lin is definitely not playing with the buyout happening, or real close to happening, so there’s that.

    Gobert has trouble guarding Steph usually.

    Durant has been one of hte worst plays on the board for nearly a month straight now because he’s overpriced by $1,000 with Cousins there.. eventually he’ll have a big game and it’ll come at low ownership because he’s such an awful play every night…

    So if you have a great lineup and wind up with durant salary left over at F then id probably try it… but if you’re asking if you should build a core around a guy that’s severely overpriced the answer is no…
