    They’ve said they wanted to get murray some more run and with a couple guys out tonight, they may get a chance to do that. However, on DK, his price seems prohibitive in a tough matchup.

    i feel ya but may be a good pivot from everyone on the clippers news…. They did let hill put up 19 points on them a few days ago and Hill has been sucking ass lately

    Crawford already gets a ton of minutes. Someone has to back up Paul, and take Rivers’ back up minutes. That’s where Felton comes in. Plus I wouldn’t be surprised if Paul’s minutes get held back a bit tonight.

    Crawford is old too and hit 30 last night. They usually keep him around 26 and never play more than 30. Don’t think Crawford gets extra minutes. More likely to go to Rivers/Redick/Felton but the only one I think that is worth a shot is Rivers other than obviously Speights and CP3.

    Full fade on Paul for me. With Rivers resting 2 studs, I think the only reason Paul isn’t out too is to avoid the criticism Kerr got. I expect Paul to play less than 30 minutes tonight.

    you must be talking about last Saturday with him…. If it makes you feel better i feel the same way

    Not only last Saturday. Hayward and I have a history that goes back a couple years now. I try not to harbor grudges against players and permafade players but I regularly get him at his worst and miss his best.

    As for his matchup itself tonight, another poster earlier said that Hayward “always brings it” versus Lebron and this is where you have to be careful about what information you take in from others. Aside from Hayward’s last game vs LBJ, where he certainly brought it to the tune of 80% shooting, he hasn’t fared too well against him. Ten career games with only one other 40 point FD game and many duds. He’s playing well recently aside from the OKC bomb but I think I will try to rework my LU and exclude him.

    Note: Hayward is going off tonight he’s a must roster

    Damn, 345 with subpar 3Xs from Waiters and J.J. Right now i’m looking at LeVert (Kilpatrick is out but his minutes didn’t seem to change when he only played 7 minutes but still he’s been a decent run and it’s @ NY) and Crawford (minutes can be there, up to 31, with high ceiling and a great matchup).

    everyone is fading CP = play him

  • posts06

    Anyone on WB and Jokic tonight?? Seems to be enough value no??

    Looking at Curry/Payton right now, I might add one more entry with paul since, recency bias, most people seem to be off of him.

  • KillaChap

    It seems to me that the SF and PF positions are the weakest and where you have to pay up.

    This time of year, there are 3 types of players you should target:

    1. Stars on teams fighting for a play off spot or fighting for a top 4 seed to get home court.
    2. The marginal players who will get big minutes on teams racing to the bottom.
    3. Players in the MVP race.

    The 3 types of players you should absolutely avoid:

    1. Stars on teams once seeding is locked. We’re maybe a week or so away from that but be ready,.
    2. Vets on tanking tanking teams, even the young-ish ones. No incentive to win means no minutes for the best players.

    EDIT: whoops, my number 3 didn’t take for some reason.

    3. Lakers. Walton has become the most unpredictable coach in terms of minutes I’ve seen this season, baiting us with news of starts and then severely limiting minutes. Perma-fade.

    Nice thanks!

    Ownership is irrelevant when

    A. B2B in Denver altitude

    B. Only 5× 2 times recently, and hasn’t hit full upside.

    C. Might not play more than 30 minutes which will make it harder to make or exceed value

    If someone is making 1 LU then he’s an easy fade

    Or pay down and punt it. You playing on FD?

  • Scottjmark

    I like Corey Joseph. So avoid him.

  • BUFUu2

    I maybe over thinking this but bass should get a decent run with the clippers going against denver… Someone has to guard nurkic and plumlee

  • MPDR1983

    Melo will be in the winning GPP tonight

  • ccchalfant

    So with Jordan and Griffin out does Speights get a run?

    Bout 38-45 fantasy points with Griffin and Jordan 28/31 minutes and some are 20 point leads, 6 points/6 turnovers last night, might be kinda pissed at himself and looking to bury last night’s performance. Could also be the reason why he is not sitting tonight.

    Yeah. I feel like I can play lower priced guys at PG and SG and have it not be a full punt. SF and PF (aside from Speights) seems like full punts that are huge risks.

    I want no part of the clips scrub players-bass speights
    I think you will see a good game out of either crawford or jj and at about the same price I will do one of each

    last night sucked-I made a last minute move taking out randle and putting in williams and that cost me bigly as I could not choose between them-tonight I feel that way with crawford and jj so I will play the same team one with one one with the other

    I get some of the concerns here and hope we hear more throughout the day but look at bigger picture here. I don’t see why Clips would be throwing away games at this point. They still have a shot at a 4 seed and also have a shot to drop to the 7 seed. NO ONE wants the 7 seed in the west and have to play Spurs/GSW in rd 1. If CP3 plays, I highly doubt they limit his minutes and he is literally in the biggest dream spot known to man with his other 2 stars out, giving him more usage, and against the worst team in the league vs PG.

    I understand the hesitation but if he is going to play, I fully think he is worth any risk concerns regarding B2B at altitude or minutes. Bigger concern to me would be if Denver gets up big, they are more likely to rest him than chase but his upside tonight is only beaten by Russ.

    Joe Johnson fellas for FD cash?

    I would recommend having 100% speights tonight. Insanely good per minute producer and only other guys above 6’8 on team have played a combined 40 minutes this year. He’s a lock everywhere.

  • yorick

    Juancho looks like a great punt today. No Gallo/Chandler/Faried (likely). Fire him up.
