    Hornets next 2 games postponed. https://t.co/B8KLRc2ox3

    So on FD…you can play 2 of ABC/LBJ/Jokic. 1 is probably the optimal play. Concerned about my lack of interest in the Suns/Nets game. Booker and Paul are priced up, and it seems like Ayton doesn’t really pop off unless 1 of Paul/Booker is out.

    Yuck lol… Kaminsky is 4.6k and probably won’t get 20 minutes with them all healthy, Saric is cheap but takes up C spot, Allen is getting too expensive at 4.7k. I like Simons and Portis a little bit, I guess.

    I missed another value couple plays, Campazzo for DEN especially if Morris is out and Caruso. No guaranteed clear cut cheap value I see at the moment, will need some further news to open things up. Lot’s of mid range value though.

  • NarrowJ

    Nope on Caruso, but love Campazzo if Morris is out.

    Yeah, cheap plays kind of suck right now. J. Green and Vanderbilt probably stand out the most and they play the same position.

    If Theis is out, I guess you can try Semi or Grant Williams.

    Then I guess there’s Campazzo, Hampton, Nnaji from Denver too.

    Am intrigued by KCP but Minnesota are the best team in the league at opponent 3 pt percentage, middle of the pack on 3 point defense despite being bottom 10 in DEFF.

    I think I need Lebron and Davis out to roster THT, maybe a massive blow out could get him enough minutes/usage to cross the 5.5X threshold.

    Baynes may be in play

    Really? Feels like we’re going to see more Boucher and Portis than Baynes and Lopez. Maybe Forbes can do something tonight, seeing enough minutes.

    Hmm..Baynes most productive fantasy game this season was against the Bucks….Boucher hardley played.

  • frugal

    @theIrrigator said...

    Just checked and sure enough I have him projected right at 6X if he sees his average minutes over the last 10 games of 22.5.

    Lopez is in play. If he comes out hot, he’ll get the run. Last game bucks were playing catch-up and portis couldn’t miss.

    Yeah that’s the only reason I mentioned him. Looking at the game flow it looks like Baynes would of played 28 mins if not for fouling out

  • Njsum1

    Last time the bucks-raps met up, Middleton, Giannis, and Brolo smashed value. Not saying it will happen again, yet neither team seems to like playing much defense recently 🤷‍♂️

    You can even run it back with Baynes 😉….Baynes is a fine cap saver for 3500 especially if you want two or even 3 studs. Likely get you 16, yet could get you 29 🤷‍♂️

    All the value will open up at 10:20 EST when BKN announces both Kyrie and James are resting the second half of the B2B.

    Harden doesn’t rest.

  • Njsum1

    Saric, seems like a decent one off. Maybe he can go all a Whiteside in the Nets

  • Tribefan18

    Maybe you guys have discussed this before and I missed it…but how is Hassan Whiteside not starting anywhere and playing 35 minutes a game? He is a legit nba center and is being completely wasted for the most part. He is better than plumlee, lopez, Jordan, Steven adams, etc.

  • tmarohl

    @frugal said...

    Running projections without any adjustments for Durant being out, I have Harden for a near floor game…which I doubt. Will need to look more closely at this matchup.

    Top 5 DK projections tonight: Giannis, Lebron, Jokic, Dame, Ingram

    Best DK Values right now: Kaminsky, Portis, Allen, Simons, Saric

    You spelled Justin Jackson wrong.

    That also was when Siakim was playing like

    The analytics suggest he’s a bad defender, think Miami fared better defensively when he was off the floor regardless of how many shots he blocks. But I do agree, he should be getting 20-25 minutes a game. Maybe not 35 b/c the opposing team could always go small and run him off the floor.

    Why doesn’t Walton play his best players? That is the million dollar question.

    He’s an old school C where most teams are looking for more versatile bigs and see traditional C’s as nothing special and easily replaceable. But I agree if you’re going to sign a guy like Jordan or Adams I can’t see why Whiteside wouldn’t be a target ahead of them. IIRC there were some attitude issues with him or something which really tanked his value, can’t remember.
