    I must be alone on Melo. The Magic are bad vs the power forward and by my count will be sans their three best wing defenders in Isaac, Aminu and A-A-ron Gordon

    I have him on FD just for his minutes and shot security, plus sf on FD is horrible. Plus I’m still a believer in melo

    I mean, it’s still Melo.

    I just pretend he doesn’t exist. Hasn’t hurt me yet.

    Coby White obviously seems to be in a good spot with Lavine out, but at 6200, you’re looking 40+ fpts to be happy. Seems like a decent fade to me

    I think I talked myself into some Valentine

    By that same logic, I’ve repeatedly been burned by trying this with Coby. Feels like a “damned if you do” situation…

    All of these decisions are made through analysis, not emotion, and it’s usually the clubs who are dictating the moves. Players want to play, and obviously fans should try to understand the risk/reward of buying tickets.

    It’s definitely the clubs, not the players. I can’t find the quote now but I remember Lebron when he went to play for the national team saying something like “I really hope Pops can teach me to pace myself. I need to learn how to take better care of my body over a season.” But even when he recognized the need he still couldn’t bring himself to actually do it, and the Cavs certainly never had a coach strong enough to force the issue.

    Is he still on a limit? Only played 10 on Saturday which was his first game back in a month.

  • monarch

    Coby is a good fade with the Bulls adding three players to make up for Zach Lavine being out. Just a lot of bodies looking for shots and now Coby gets the Mavs best defenders. Last time I had this line of thinking he had like 55 DK points

    I dislike Coby immensely but have used him to success in DFS. Melo at least has no real ceiling, so it’s less risky. Also I can’t believe he’s still employed in the NBA.

    I’ll have some Sexton but I’m slowly pulling him out of some…. cannot trust the guy even with 20 shots.

    Not sure but he’s starting and had a 34 usage rate last game in 10 min. Worth a flier?

    I’m not sure how to respond to that. Both of your responses to actual posts by me that contained stats and stuff were pretty blunt and lacking. Anyways Melo has been in the winning lineups far more this season than this board would lead anyone to believe. Probably not tonight but to me its a decent spot without the Magic having their best wing defenders.

    I don’t mind the idea, but I wish it was his 3rd game back, not his 2nd.

    Speaking of Bulls on minutes limits, how many does WCJr realistically play? 5.5K on DK seems… ambitious if he’s still playing under 20.

    unplayable there. He’s the min on FD with a better scoring system for him though, which I’ve been dabbling around with.

    Panda…how you been doing lately? Back to the good old days?

  • monarch

    My favorite plays are KPJ/Nance Jr and Sabonis. With Trae, Harden, Morant, Vuc, Mitchell Robinson mixed around them quite a bit. Probably need to go get more Luka.

  • choppadown

    I think I’m off Kevin Huerter tonight, Lot of places to go in that price range on FD…

    Melo, like every other NBA player has a big game once a month. Melo happened to have a big game against the Pistons relatively recently. Means nothing to me. Melo, overall has been very underwhelming the past 2 months or so after the newness wore off. I also hate playing PF’s on DK who aren’t getting boards and blocks. Like, give me something besides points and a bunch of binary code.

    Melo’s like a virtuoso programmer in that sense.
