    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

    Speights is a PPM monster. I get the theory of fading him, but if he does get 25 minutes, he could easily put up big numbers that you will not be able to catch up to if you don’t play him.

    Anyone know where you can get player prop info?

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

    Faried went thru a full practice hes more on the likely to play side

    Switching over to DK for the first time instead of FD for tonight’s slate. Biggest difference in roster construction/strategy for tonight between the two sites? TIA

  • colb24

    Wheres Dirk at? I been cleaning up in cash games I monitor a few of his ideas then throw in some of mine and its been working , He’s solid! Always has great input.

    True, but he averages 2.8 PF a game this season going against a team that draws a lot of fouls. That being said he did rack up 4 against Den but managed to go 27 minutes and get about 25 fantasy points in a game that he started in.

    So I would use him if I really needed to pay up, and he could certainly win a gpp, but he could also crush your chances at winning one too. Would not consider him a “lock” at this moment.

    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.

    I don’t understand the cp3 hate either. If he goes, he’s going in a bunch of my lineups, depending how many I make. There is some risk, so I’m going to be somewhere in the 30 to 50% range. The usage would be outrageous if the game remains competitive.

    I’m not sure I can remember a bigger lock this year than Speights is right now.

    Barton is a great play. The play compared to what though? The lock of the whole slate?

    I was left scratching my head last night.

    I cashed on one of the free contests with a lineup I threw together in less than three minutes. That LU included Bjelica who only scored 9 points 😐
    Every cash game I was in where I literally studied and tinkered with throughout the day spending hours on fell flat with no cash..

    Sometimes I guess we over analyze way to much

    Girlfriend percentage?

  • DirkDigglerz

    Got a feeling it’s gonna be a LBJ Hayward duel

  • monarch

    Also if you guys haven’t seen…CP3 and Speights are 1.44 and 1.47 FDP/Min when on the floor together without Blake and DeAndre this season so they warrant a roster spot in at least one of my GPP LU’s.

    NVM….didn’t realize Paul was 9.8k on FD….Yikes

    @MPDR1983 said...

    Melo will be in the winning GPP tonight

    Yeah…my projections love Melo especially if Porzingus is out. However, does NY have a pick this year? I guess it’s still mathematically possible for them to make the playoffs, but any day now I’m expecting to get the news that Melo is shut down for the year as NY looks to improve their position in the draft. Exactly the type of player I like to fade this time of the season.

  • hpatel1089

    Curry/Hayward or Westy/RHJ FD cash
