    Shaq Harrison at 3k is pretty enticing, I also really like Jordan Poole at 4K given the fact that they just cut pargo and he was already trending up in terms of minutes/usage.

    I understand the Shaq love, but Arci is just sitting there $100 more with a bigger foothold in the rotation already. Of course he’s not SF eligible like Shaq is.

    Yeah for now, I’m pretty much 100% Brown at 3800. Less interested in DRose with minutes up in the air but I’ll certainly have some.

    Also have oodles of Wiggins as SF is again, weak

    I’m looking at a lot of Tobias Harris at SF, but I’m not sure how much I love it. It’s the lowest his salary has been all year @ 6200.

    But one of them is named Shaq! Also the only thing I can (logically) posit towards Shaq is that he can probably play more combo guard/wing that Arci. But you are correct about him being higher in Boylen’s line of people he likes, which is kinda just how he operates.

    Tough not to just click on Rose and Brown every time, but SG is actually pretty deep.

    I think having rose exposure is going to happen, but I’m also going to be careful. Brown is just tough to get away from.

    Are we thinking Rose will have a minutes restriction?

    He’s still only a couple actual game settings removed from injury (though the extra week obviously does mean a lot), and yeah… the pistons are in a weird situation. They’re not competing for anything, the trade deadline has passed, and so while I can’t say for sure what their intentions are, I don’t know why they’d keep running rose for extended minutes (meaning like more than 28-30).

    Obviously 30 minutes would still be really sufficient at his usage and price, but I can see situations where we go “I can’t believe Rose only got 22 minutes!”

    There’s ZERO incentive to play Rose anything significant.

    Anything can happen and I’m not in Casey’s head, Rose is still a Piston today more so because of loyalty and Arn Tellem. I would be MORE shocked if Rose played 30 minutes than 20 minutes, and I’ll go a step further and say, I’d be more surprised if he played beyond 30 minutes than like a 15-18 minute range.

    With all that said, Rose has put up big numbers in the 20-25 minute range before and he’s priced OK on FD, so I wouldn’t specifically fade him in fear he doesn’t see 30+ minutes. I have no interest whatsoever on DK though. Pistons will most likely get waxed and Rose should definitely be glued to the bench in a blowout.

    Yeah, that all sounds reasonable. I like that he played a couple minutes in OT last week when they could’ve just put in Brown — I read that Casey doesn’t want to play Brown at the point. I assume we’ll get some bit of clarity tomorrow.

    Yeah, I think we’re on the same page.

    Chriss will stay on the floor against Houston,won’t he? Great option on DK at $6200 if so.

  • MoccasinMusic

    Can Damion Lee have a repeat performance against the rockets??

  • gaelicgirl

    Got Bleacher Report back!

    Had to download the new version of Microsoft Edge, and now it looks normal again.

    Been away from NBA for a while, but want to start playing again. Isn’t Sato a lock on Yahoo for $15?

    I don’t play yahoo nor am I super familiar with the pricing. I took a quick look and he looks too cheap, Poole will probably get some ownership too and is cheaper

    Anyone know what’s going on with Jarrett Allen decline in minutes and DAJ playing more. DAJ just playing better of late?

    As far as I can tell, that’s pretty much been it. I chanced into playing him at the beginning of his good run, and have played him every day since to great effect.

    Nikola Jokic has lost 20-25 lbs during season

    I would say that directly corresponds with his improvement from Mid January to now.

    Is it dumb to play Middleton and ABC together?

  • got9forya

    Finally can lose more money on FD in Basketball. Hope yall are buying something nice with my donations

  • superjon

    Embid’s price is too nice.

    Do we pair him with Harden or ABC, or go more balanced?

  • Kanner88

    So happy to have it back. Maybe it’s just been the withdrawals, but I’ve loved this slate since I first laid eyes on it too.

    Not if you think the game stays close enough, long enough that they play full minutes and do well. I don’t believe either of those first two happen so I won’t play them together. Probably won’t play Middleton at all on DK. There’s probably 7-10 SF’s I like more, but not sure if you’re talking elsewhere. ABC I’ll have exposure too here and there, because he’s so easy to get to, but Embiid/Harden/Westbrook all seem like better places to put your money, but he’ll also be lower owned than those 3 I’d imagine, so that makes him a bit more interesting. This is all from a DK perspective though and depending on pricing may be useless to you.
