    Anyone look at that 3 ball chucking 7 footer Brook Lopez in his 3 games vs Phoenix this year for DK???

    46 DK points on 11/17, 32 on 11/13 and 38.75 on 10/20.

    For $5100 I may have to make a donk call and take him.

    Great play if he plays 25+ minutes. Could end up playing 9 again, so who knows.

    I think I’d rather pay up a little and get Kanter or go down to Chandler…. There’s even a few guys sub 5k I’m looking at

  • timbeebe2

    Gonna throw Kuzma in a couple of FD lineups at $4300, just a gut feeling (worked for me with Rondo yesterday at 3% ownership)

  • MinusEV

    I never play the Pick’em contests, but the $60k Sharpshooter looks good tonight for $3…. Especially with such a Stud heavy slate.

    Yep, he is definitely a gpp play, but the history so far this year definitely favors taking a flier on him in a lineup or 2.

    I am also looking at Jarrett Allen, with Zeller gone, he should see at least 30+ minutes I would think, unless they plan to split him and Okafor. Did well against Embiid a few games ago and had 2 solid games since then.

    For a few hundred more you can get Jonas with huge upside. He’s getting more playing time and done it against Gasol & Gobert recently so I’m not too concerned about the matchup

    Why do I get the feeling that at least one stud is gonna bust tonight. The trick is to figure out which one.

    I watch most Nets games, they are in no way splitting him with Okafor. Allen is the man. He got in foul trouble last game so played less in the first half, but he is their guy.

    I think I will go with Harden and hope for the blowout so he doesn’t get there.

  • Numberboy

    LeBron hasn’t been the same since IT2 came back. He’s averaging 46 fppg with him in the lineup over 13 games & 57 fppg without him. His price hasn’t dropped accordingly. Even though it’s a great matchup LeBron is a full fade for me until that situation resolves itself or that price drops

  • TrustinthePlan

    Right now I have 5 lineups made with Westy in each one, paired with one other stud, lol. Curry/Harden/Durant/Embiid/LBJ, but I am with srcripps on this that at least one stud is going to bust, and my thinking is Harden or LBJ, so maybe I will double up and play with the value picks.

    But for right now, I am studying the value plays and trying to find the right ones, so I don’t make the same mistake as last night.

    Also, for some reason Dragan Bender keeps popping up at me, think I may have a few lineups with him even with Chriss back, Chriss may be out of the rotation or at least faded to limited minutes.

    Well of course he’s going to average less fppg with IT back. lol He takes up usage. but you’re right he does need a price reduction to better match his production.

  • Lathum

    The problem with LeBron is he isn’t even a great tournament play because the casual fan will keep clicking his name.

  • MinusEV

    I think I’ll be fairly underweight vs the field on RWB in GPP’s.

  • Tambo722

    What is everyone’s opinions on Ulis tonight? I am thinking of locking him in all 20 of my lineups. Should i not lock him? His minutes aren’t there, should that increase with booker out? Or should I just fade him?

  • Ace15

    I’ll be heavy Ulis tonight, love the spot. Pace Up, no Booker, and I like his matchup with Ennis better than if it was Lonzo. He’ll be part of my core tonight.

    His minutes will or should increase without Booker but also with no Canaan. He should run the point as well so that’s obviously a plus, I’ll have him but not in all my LUs

    Ennis hasn’t been playing many minutes so it’s actually a matchup with Hart/Clarkson & KCP should stay at the 2

    Caris levert is blowout proof right?

    I hate playing Bender but for 4k, in a great matchup, and with increased playing time, it is hard to make an argument against him

  • Lathum

    2 injuries last night cost me between $200-a few thousand.

    Had 305 on my main FD lineup with a low owned Olynyk, first in most GPPs was between 325-345.

    Had Fox in the late slate and missed the cash line in all lineups by .2.

    Just have to tell myself I’m building solid lineups, but man, so frustrating.
