    FD Gpp. Harden/Lopez or Jokic/Booker?

  • RandysCrow

    • Ranked #48

      RG Tiered Ranking

    13.8 is a lot to pay off for Harden. Obviously he can do it against the Suns, but with CP3 playing I’m not sure Harden is needed to get that. You would need 70 fpts to pay off Hardens price, but you would realistically need for him to get about 80 to offset what the field under him will produce. The next cheapest guys under Harden at SG on FD are all in spots to put up a ceiling spot (60 fpts), so you need more than for Harden just to hit value.

    I don’t see it, unless Gordon were to sit for Houston.

    I keep telling myself I don’t see it….then later in the night I keep being disappointed….

    I think we can stop with the Harden is too expensive narrative.

    You can find reasons to fade him but price shouldn’t be one.

    J Collins only $7600 on FD vs Washington…. will his mins be back in the mid-30s or upper 20s?

    I didn’t say his price should stop you, I just said he needed more than to just hit value. Paying for Harden is no problem on FD, but the expected return is what may give pause.

    If your projection model has him for 75-80 then by all means lock and load. But if you just project him for 65-70 (which is where I am at), then I think he is fadable.

    I am playing john wall tonight-it is lots easier to know that you will get a zero ahead of time instead of hearing about it after lock like Lowry

    He’s a little pricey on FD, DK he’s “only” 12.9. However, Harden destroys easy matchups. If the game gets out of hand, he likely won’t pay off the price. Yet if it stays close, and you fade, you’re going to be begging for the game to end. Always take at least a field size share of the guy with 100 point upside.

    Any love for Cory Joesph on yahoo if he gets the start?

    Right now, I just have Harden and Booker together and hope it’s back and forth.

    Yeah I have interest. He’s currently in my dummy line, not sure yet if I’m gonna end up going there or not.

  • JSteele

    It doesn’t seem like anyone on the Spurs gets that much of a boost without White. Maybe Mills is worth a look.

    Starting my LUs w Booker/LMA/ABC/Green

    Is Jordan McRae a good punt today?

    Yeah that leaves you thin though. Not like Booker is a bad play…he’s just pricey and if you’re going to pair a 9k player with a 13k player, you’re going to be scraping. However, if you hit on the punts, it might work out nicely if the game plays high and tight.

    is it worth playing john collins and faried?

    Don’t see how you can make a lineup without Collins on FD.

  • JSteele

    I know Jamal Murray is questionable, but if he doesn’t go, Monte Morris is still way too cheap 6k on DK.
