    Only play tournaments hoping to hit big one of these times. But I think I am going to start playing cash games to try and build my money up. It seems people have more success this way. Any tips on what to play?

    50/50.

    Beat 50.000001% of the competition, you win.

    Any news on Jose Calderon and his groin injury?

  • mbunner23

    Wiggins Bosh, or Wade Randle?

  • TheRealJoker

    Who is the safest play tonight between Gorgui Dieng, Marcus Smart and PJ Tucker?

  • chronoxiong

    Doesnt anyone think Harden costs way too much against the Heat who are a good defensive team? Although both Whiteside and Howard are out.

    Probably Dieng. From a minutes/matchup standpoint.

    I am a fan of Smart, but I worry about his minutes. He has been productive, but it is in spurts. If his shot isn’t falling, then he can burn you.

    Wade Randle… IMO… Wade has been playing well and while Wade will most likely see Beverly instead of Harden…. i think Wade has a big game……… Randle should get all the minutes he can handle with Nance out…

    Curious that you think he’s a cash play when he has been well below his floor recently? Seems like a GPP play?

    In 24 games vs. Suns Lowry is averaging 11.6 real ppg.

    I lean towards Dieng but I might say Smart is Crowder is ruled out for sure. Sure it puts Turner in as the starter but that means Smart will get additional playing time backing up both thomas and bradley. Tucker’s minutes are very safe, but he doesn’t always get stats since he’s more of a “glue” player and probably the best real-life player of the 3 but not for DFS. I have plenty of all three of them in my lineups today

    I was thinking the same. But I already have Rubio/Kat slated on DK and am hesitant to roster 3 Twolves in cash.

    Howard being out is a factor here for sure. There’s also a ton of value elsewhere today. The heat definitely defend well and it’s a risky play but the ceiling is incredibly high on harden as well. I’ll have harden in about 50% of my lineups for sure. I would have more but SG has a ton of good plays tonight, including wade.

    With so much early news, this and Kobe are likely to be the lingering questions. Reports sound like he’s closer to probable but I wouldn’t be shocked to see him sit and galloway get another start. Good news is he plays in the first game of the night, so we should know before lineups lock.

  • galed

    true. but remember Marcus thornton played and put up 16 shots to Hardens 15. becasue thorton hardly ever plays now, Harden is easily a lock for 20 + shots

  • galed

    lowry has played like garbage the last 3 games tho.

  • lastcallcasualty

    Knight possible return tonight. Retweak those lineups boys!!!

  • galed

    Bass plays center not PF for the Lakers.

    Quick: What’s the most (DK) fantasy points Miami has given up to a shooting guard this season?

    Answer: 51fps to Monta Ellis on 12/11/2015 (yes, DWade played that game)

    This means that for Harden to reach 5x value (51.50 fps. Again, talking DK) he has to have THE BEST game any SG has had this year against Miami.

    I’m not saying you should or should not roster him. Just something to keep in mind along with Harden’s previous 39.50 out against the Heat on 11/1/2015.

    I have all three and could still fit Rubio and Melo in one lineup

  • FantasyFreakFFW

    So, is there any advantage to rolling out Lavine and Wiggins in the same lineup?

    You mean Stoud? STOUD-emire!! Completely different. Way off! Not even close to a nickname! Come on people!

    He’s been called STAT since he has been in the league.

    Think it is short for Standing Tall and Talented.

  • AdrianxBeatason

    how bad is this anthony brown character… if kobe sits is there anyway the lakers game stays close? i think wolves could blow them out theyve been competing with some good teams in tight losses.
