    Oh, Crazy Eyes. He has a really strong history against Philadelphia too (if I’m remembering right), but that really doesn’t matter.

    I think it’s pretty clear that the majority of the field is going to be preoccupied with jamming in as many Lakers and Sixers as possible tonight and probably overlook SAC/OKC.

    This slate gives me a similar feeling that last night’s did; dubious value. I’m not touching Horford here as every plus attribute of his game has been neutralized by injury this year. I think a lot of people have been quick to blame the fit with Philly’s system, but I genuinely believe he’s been playing hurt and no amount of extra usage is going to fix that.

    I’m also liking Tobias less the more I look at it. 7.5K with no Simmons and Embiid is an easy 50 spot on paper, but I don’t know that he’s the real beneficiary of those guys being out. He rarely plays like an alpha scorer, which is what I think you want from the highest priced piece on a team. If he ends in the low 40s that’s going to hold back a lot of lineups.

    I think J-Rich and Burks are much more likely to get on a heater and chuck their way to 10x here. I’ll also take Sabonis over AD here. I don’t see a lot of upside to any Laker priced over 4K other than Davis, and he seems like the most obvious fade that could give you the jump on the field if he doesn’t go for 70+.

    Sounds like you are going to leave lots of money on the table.

    Honestly, if Taj doesn’t play it just makes Mitchell Robinson that much more viable.

  • BerkeleyBoss

    Oh man, this is feeling like a throwback slate. I used to play Rondo and Portis every chance I could, back when they had crazy ceilings.

    Yeah, 12-13 dead center minutes up for grabs. Robinson and Portis could each see 30 here really.

    Not at all. At the moment I’m paying up for CJ and Sabonis, then toying with AD/Whiteside/Randle/SGA.

    Right now I’m just basically fading Philly, though that may change as you probably need at least a piece.

    Lakers have me stumped the most. I like Caruso but am on the fence about Rondo/Kuzma/Kieff/etc.

    I respect Taj enough to still call him by his name, not his status.

    Robinson>Porits>Horford? Right? RIght?

  • captainwacky

    Also one guy we haven’t discussed a lot who I never get right is Julius Randle. He’s played pretty light minutes on this stretch for them, including only 25 yesterday. He probably gets full run here and won’t be highly owned given the slate texture.

  • choppadown

    Haven’t built a lineup yet for tonight, had a really good one for last night but didn’t cash due to couple guys under 15 points.

    Odd slate though, good luck everyone!

  • codygracyalny

    Hield/Bog or both?

    In all reality Taj is still OK. I mean even from a DFS perspective the guy still averages just a bit under a FPPM, he just doesn’t get enough minutes to be playable then the ripple effect of making others unplayable as well.

    The value on this slate tho

    Why do you like Caruso more than Rondo?

    I feel the same way. Guys like CoJo and potentially KOQ add to the nostalgia factor.

  • MrPerfekt7

    Crazy to fade Horford?

    Thoughts on Caruso?

  • choppadown

    Anyone playing Elf? Thinking JRich will be on Rj Barret?

  • captainwacky

    So Tobias Harris is going to guard Julius Randle? god dammit…

  • Supersharpie

    Help me out folks…better GPP combo:

    Hield/Tobias

    Or

    SGA/Warren
