    Just too many cooks in the kitchen

    I think the knicks had a good thing going and then they decided to bring in Rose…. we’ll see…. reminds me of the clippers last year bringing in bug eyes.. :/

    2 fave Superdraft plays? Ingles @ 1.75x and Butler at 1.3x?

    I like Oubre at 1.55. I wasn’t on Ingles, but I might. I like Mitchell and Gobert.

    Couple thoughts: Noel is a toothpick. Boogie will have his way.

    Everyone knows I hate narratives. I’m not on that game because there’s narratives. I’m on it because both teams stink defensively. Simple as that for me.

    Golden State sucks defensively?

    Who will be the random player that goes off and wins someone a GPP on DK? That is the question

    Gallinari

    Your math is incorrect. I get your point, but the point is to get max value out of each dollar spent no matter where it comes from. Forcing in 3k guys to get 10 x is a common mistake quite a few make, assuming they can find the correct spend ups to balance out that extra salary saved. Either way noel will easily go 8-10 x.

    That is good for me then. My 10k plays will 3X while Noel gets 10X. Everything evens out nicely!!

    Thats what i have been trying to figure out for the last 2 hours. Nothing is popping.

    I look at my LU and I have tried to stay away from the super chalk with no success.

    I think i am just going to play a cash style LU in GPPs tonight.

    What’s up with Capela’s minutes of late?

    Hear me out: stats don’t show everything.

    GS plays fast. Steph is terribly defensively. Brooklyn will look to exploit him. 1 of Harden or Kyrie will have a game here. If Brooklyn goes small with KD at the 5, this game will be a track meet. Wiggins is also terrible on the defensive end.

    That red 2nd for GS defense against wings is misleading on DK.

    I think Steph and Draymond eat. KD and one of Ree/Harden go ham sammy.

    I hate narratives.

    Me too, but only because I haven’t found a good way to quantify them.

    Like, having a tool on how players generally do on their birthdays.
    Or the dreaded Bobblehead MLB narrative. Whenever someone homers on their Bobblehead day, everyone knows about it, but you never hear about the guy that went 0-4 with 3 ks on their bobblehead day.

    Big blowout and foul trouble last 2.

    See Panda on page 3:

    “Yeah, I don’t think that’s an issue I’d worry about though. He lost minutes to a blowout, before than foul trouble, before that a perfectly good DFS game against Toronto.”

    Thanks.

    I am feeling this slate.

  • RipCityRings

    I keep imagining Wiggins/Oubre foul trouble leading to a Bazemore game, but it’s a tough call with Sterling/Paschall/Nwaba all right there on DK.

    Makes sense. I realize a team being ranked highly in defensive efficiency doesn’t mean they can’t be exploited in this game, was just making sure you were talking about what I think you’re talking about, because saying they stink defensively seems sort of extreme, but yeah. That’s kind of how they were in their championship years too, in that they were always ranked well metrically on the defensive end, but got into their share of track meet high scoring games.

    Your math is incorrect

    I didn’t really do any math, yet the math I did is not incorrect. 8x for a 5k player is 40 points or 5x +15. 10x for a 3k player is 30 points or 5x +15.

    Now I don’t know what Noel will do, yet to say he’ll easily hit the upper end of his range and get 31-40 DK is a stretch.

    Also Cousins at 1.65x

  • Herf

    Miami will try to match Utah’s three point barrage and Kelly Olynyk will have a big game at a decent price.

    Just a hunch for a big who likes to chuck it from deep.

    Interesting. He’s 7th among SF’s, or would be 6th among SG’s in DRPM too. I guess Harden is getting shut down tonight?!

    There’s so many other factors. I’m not a GS homer like you so you could fill me in.

    Still early in the season, I wonder who’s guarding the other teams best perimeter player every night. Is it Wiggins or Oubre?
