    Yeah I’m gonna throw 1 into the $3.33.

    Quick position by position thoughts for FD.

    PG – leaning towards a combo of Fox and Ball. Ball doesn’t seem to lose a whole lot with all of those guys healthy and he can rack up the peripheral stats which is extra important on FD. Lowry also interesting if FVV is out.

    SG – not sure on Beal yet. Priced over 10K but some mid range plays I’m looking at: Malik Beasley, Norm Powell, Buddy Hield. Also possibly looking at LeVert if Smart is out. That BKN/Boston game might be sneaky if Tatum/Smart are out.

    SF – my thought process as of now: Love Lebron if Davis is out, b/c they’ll absolutely need him to win even with the high spread. If Davis is in, I’d rather get to Siakam and OG if Ibaka is out. If Ibaka and Davis are in, I may just play the combo of Hayward/Brown assuming Tatum and Smart are out. This is entirely injury dependent.

    PF – i’m gonna eat the Lyles chalk. Better matchup, even he if gives you 25-28, it won’t completely kill you. Jerami Grant is also really interesting if Millsap is out, MPJ as a deep punt. Leonard probably at the top end.

    C – I don’t see any other option but Biyombo here. I don’t see the need to pay up even with Jokic there vs. a bad Golden State team.

    Another day of waiting around on a whole mess of questionable dudes.

    Any takes here? I’d imagine 1 of Smart/Tatum sits, but not sure who. Temple probably sits. Millsap sits. Dray and Looney sit. Ibaka plays. FVV sits. LMA expected to sit. AD probably sits again, but we won’t know until after lock.

    Boston does play tomorrow, so it wouldn’t shock me if Smart and Tatum sat tonight.

    Honestly, I just wait on the news and react.

    Lowry seems pretty cheap on FD, especially if FVV is out. Not sure what to make of OG if Ibaka plays. Feels like he could go off again and shock everyone, or now when everyone hops on, he turns into hot garbage. 🤷‍♂️

    Got a feeling Rozier does well here. Super cheap on FD. Pretty cheap on DK, minutes back up, Graham likely out, spurs B2B, and brogdon who appeared to be stuck at 32 DK points for the last 7 weeks, actually crept into the 40’s (I did mention him yesterday, albeit briefly mixed in between all the…cough, cough Elf love). Still can’t believe he only played 19 minutes. Ok deep breath, onto today.

  • BlitzburghBeatdown

    Any thoughts on Plumlee at C on FD? He’s $4100 and scored 44 FD points in 26 minutes against GS when they played 6 weeks ago.

    I had a dream AD was ruled out right at lock. I didn’t have him in any of my main FD teams but had quite a bit in my 150 lineups. I guess really it was a nightmare lol

    Like Dinwiddie. BOS has actually been slipping against PG’s lately. Not sure if Kemba back patches that up, but Kemba will most likely be limited anyway. Price is fair. In good form. One decent and one excellent performance against BOS already, but those were with LeVert out. Of course this is a from an FD perspective, because I, like everyone else here is falling for that $3.33 trap.

  • Herf

    There are options EVERYWHERE. Looks to be a very high scoring night for the $3.33 contest. 450ish.

    Nothing about Dinwiddie lol. Just an alert saying AD out and then me looking at my AD exposure

  • gaelicgirl

    FD had a perfect opportunity to run 3 2-game express slates at 8:00, 9:00, and 10:00 with games starting at the same time…but no!
    They stuck the 7:30 game in with the 8:00 games, then stuck the 9:00 games in with the 8:00 games, and then stuck the 10:00 games in with the 9:00 games.

    I would think they all sit except Smart. I don’t think he’d let a tummy ache get in the way of playing

    How can the have Super Trey Day without Young on the schedule :)

    Been off on my main plays the last couple nights. However, something I’ve been doing on Yahoo and DK which has worked is stacking C’s. C is one of the few positions which on average there are teams allowing far greater than 1 FPPM. For example Last night on Yahoo stacking JVal with Dieng returned 68.5 for $41, ATL has been allowing 62.9 to C’s over the last 15. I did this last time SAC played DET where Giles/Len combined for 58 FP on $26. When there is a good idea of the minutes split at a total combined cost of < ~$30 and the opponent is giving up 1+ FPPM it’s tough to miss. A few spots where this applies today:

    Theis/Kanter $30 vs BKN allowed 55.63
    Giles/Len $28 vs WAS allowed 50.48
    Favors/Melli $30 vs MIN allowed 58.27 (whether Melli or Zion is the C here is certainly debatable not as clear cut as the other 2)
    Adams/Noel $34 vs LAC allowed 53.69

    I’m not so sure AD sits tonight. But who the F knows anymore.

    For sure. Unless I have some moment of clarity where I realize it’s an awful decision, which is highly unlikely.

    this is like show down slates for me in football-I will enter bunch line ups leaving plenty of money on the table

    FD used to always have a $4 large GPP every night. They got away from that about three years ago.

    on the road missing half their team basically-the lakers will get up big and the scrubs will come in and mop up or lakers just limit minutes and run a big rotation-how the game will stay close is if bron and davis both sit(which could happen)
