    Is playing Bey chasing points?

    Only if he duds 😉

    Wouldn’t go all in on a guy who shot 10-12. Yet a few shares makes sense.

    Ppl will sleep on Stewart if Plum sits.

    He has an ugly shot too. Haven’t seen anything that gross not from a Ball brother since Marion. I’m not betting on him dropping 3’s like that again.

    Yep. And very possible that Stewart also sleeps on Stewart and puts up 10fp versus Adams.

    It’s always risky starting bench players who aren’t normally part of the rotation or just have a small role.

    If the starters come out hot, these guys might not see much run. They’re worth playing, yet I’ve seen this movie before, and sometimes it goes like this…..

    OK why isn’t my guy playing, he’s going to get a DNPCD isn’t he, WTF????? 😡😡😡🤬🤬🤬🤯🤯🤯

    Happened with Delone Wright, Javon Carter and some other guy, that I can’t remember, this year alone.

    Yet if they get the run, both Bjelica and Reddick are nice cap saving value plays, with upside.

    Edit…would seem Redick is safer if both NAW and Hart are out. Bjelica hadn’t played in like a month, and fox was out as well. Plenty of games where just Bagley missed and Bjelica didn’t play

    Good point about bjelica getting unexpected minutes. It wasn’t just Bagley being out but Fox too. And if I recall correctly, a bit of a blowout.

    He was a 40% 3p shooter in college and it has transitioned very well in the NBA now. This isn’t a fluke because he doesnt have a sexy form and also, it isnt the first time this year he hits 6+ threes. Bad take for sure.

    As long as he stays out of foul trouble hes a good play today

    Good point. Jamaal Wilkes comes to mind as a highly successful “poor form” shooter. But now I’m showing my age. The ball just needs to get into the basket. Doesn’t matter what it looks like.

    If Hayward sits I’m ready to stack this SAS CHA game.

    I will target him in games that are blown out by 26 points at half and he will get wide open looks against guys who never see the court or against a team on a back to back after playing a real conference foe with absolutely no desire to play.
    Those are the games where he has paid off this year. Hope I’m wrong for guys who take him, and the player intake scores more fp.

    “With absolutely no desire to play” you lost me there have a good day we’ll come back to this when Bey does it again vs an opposing teams starters but im sure itll be because the opposing team didn’t feel like playing lol

    If he does it again this month in any situation I will tip my cap to you both!

    On my first run, I’m maxing out Porzingis, Diallo, and Keldon Johnson.
    No way Keldon Johnson burns me 6 games in a row.
    Clown gif incoming.

    He should see good minutes though if plum is out and the game is competitive as NO plays big.

    He’s not an offensive threat, kinda like the Noel play yesterday. Not likely to go off, yet the floor seems nice and centers can luckbox into hustle stats.

    He’s also rested and Adams isn’t much of an offensive center, so there’s hope he can stay out of foul trouble. I’ll have some shares at 3600 if plum is out

    If Plum is out, I’ll be maxed out on Stewart.

    Thanks, doesn’t mean he won’t get good run tonight. Yet I’d be wary if fox goes, and I even if he doesn’t, I’d still be cautious. If both fox and Bagley are out, I’ll have Bjelica in like 2/10 with the understanding that he may not play.

    Ditto this.
    I may not even have him in 1 of 10.

    I am with you Yuker.
    If I can get someone that has proven to hit 30 dfk pts, starts and has been getting minutes, which then allows me to pay up for a 10-11K player in a smash spot and then I 3X that 11k player, then I am alllll in! I would also have a few LUs with Bey in can he goes foul happy again.

    Picking a 11k player and 3Xing him is independent of those plays and is an inevitable outcome!

    You playing the DK Forum League??

    Is Kenny Williams the de facto point guard on OKC? Looked that way last game 🤷‍♂️

    Can’t argue against that. depends how much risk you want to take for the potential reward.

    Bjelica is more than Bagley on FD. You can actually just put Bjelica in your lineup and swap to Bagley if active or to Marcus Morris.

    I’m 100% fading Doncic tonight, barring one of those goofy scratches.

    My model normally loves Doncic, but not this time, which surprised be because of Amian Lillar’s supposed lack of D, though I’m thinking Lillard will be on JRich, Jones on Donc and Trent on DF-S.

    Anyhow, I’m seeing high ownership numbers for Doncic and that with a low projection for him makes him a complete fade for me.

    Another fun slate.
