    Christian Wood is going to smash tonight and he’s at a decent price. Find your value in Miami and Dallas. Wood is definitely in play on DK

  • mbunner23

    John Collins will destroy Enes on offense right…. I mean Kanter can’t defend nobody.

  • Bodiaz36

    I would need to see a larger sample size of Christian Wood at C, with no Drummond in the picture, before I’m comfortable even paying 6K for him. On FD, his price is disqualifying imo. Am I missing something here? I know he has considerable upside, but the matchup isn’t ideal either

    I was thinking that too. But the more I look at his price tag the more I think I can fade. I believe his outcomes are between 50-60 points in best case scenario. There are guys that are cheaper that can get you 50 points tonight IMO.

    As far as the Dallas secondary plays, DFS, Brunson and Kleber…..then yes I will be scrambling too.

    What’s your take on the must plays for Dallas tonight if Zinger is sitting? Are there must plays on Dallas if Zinger is playing?

    Also, what’s your take on DFS vs THJ. I feel like DFS is a better play, what is your view on that?

    Thanks

    Assuming KP, Barea, Curry are out I like, in order, Kleber, DFS, Wright, Brunson.
    If KP plays and Brea/Curry are out I like KP(depending on site salary) and DFS and not much else.
    If KP out and Barea or Curry plays, no interest in Wright nor Brunson but I’d lock in Barea or Curry if announced starting.

    Michael Wallace MyMikeCheck 1h Coach Taylor Jenkins says memgrizz incoming players from trade deadline are going through physicals today and tomorrow. Memphis will have 11 available on roster for tonight’s game at @sixers.
    So the 11 i count are Ja,Tyus,Melton,Brooks,Anderson,Guduric,Konchar,Jackson,Watanabe,JJJ,Clarke. So they pretty much already ruling out Val?

    Why Wright before Brunson? Just the price difference?

    Welp. There goes that. Man I had 5 LUs with Whiteside as a pivot off of chalk Ayton. He’s 500 less and if he wasn’t hurt I would bet he outscores Ayton. Dang it!!

    Yep. I was right there with you.

    Does Portland even keep it close now? This could mess up the Jazz players if it’s a blowout, like Conley. UGH

    I really don’t think Ayton was chalk anywhere. In fact Whiteside would have been higher owned on every site. Kanter is the real C chalk.

    Do we pivot to Gobert now? He’s 400 cheaper and doesn’t have Whiteside in there now. He could get to 50 with a lot of rebounds.

    But I feel there is blowout concern now. Scared to roster him if he doesn’t get 35+. Not sure who plays C now for Blazers, Moses Brown??? EEKS

    sans Whiteside, Blazers would be playing from the perimeter…. like Houston.

    Last year there was a Blazers v Jazz game sans Nurkic, so it was VB Leonard vs Rudy …. Jazz lost big because Leonard killed it from the 3pt arc.

    Brunson could certainly kill even at his elevated price but there’s other guys around the same price with similar elevated usage. I keep hoping for a Wright breakout, my preference isn’t based on any data point other than I think he can match Brunson at a lower price allowing a payup at another spot. He’s such a good defender and the Mavs brought him in initially as a starter. I think he’s due a big game tonight where his block and steal upside come into play.
