    I don’t know why you guys even listen to these “experts” they don’t do nothing but sway you in the wrong direction. I only read the grind down but I’m skeptical about that.

  • River2009

    Anyone else seen that Bledsoe is questionable?

    Second that, whats your thoughts on Bledsoe and Al Will?

    def al will for sure he will tear them up…. had 11 points in 4min last time…… idk about bledsoe i think he is questionable but i don’t think he is that great of a defender thinking he may guard young and I will be taking a risk on young

    soo i’ve listened to two podcasts so far this morning…everyone is off the clippers…..food for thought fellas…also i watch some game film from the last time the spurs played OKC..they hid parker on robertson….and started Green on Westy…I think the 4th or 5th possession he blocked Westy’s jumpshot…..Westbrook played really well that game but didn’t even crack 60DK points….

    If bledsoe out Ulis will be chalk. Think I am going to fade westbrook today and stack the late night games and mix in some leonard.

    I’m not sold on Kyrie and the Whiny Bitch. Detroit just seems such a slow pace and opponents don’t seem to do too well against them in a fantasy points sense. But then again, I“m broke so what the hell do I know?

    I love Noto and his work is clearly as in depth as anyone but again, I’ve never won money playing his recommendations. I did do pretty well during the MLB season last year with the RG premium tools. Definitely going to get it again this year.

    How is it a poor argument when it’s true?

    Mind you, I’m only talking about slates that are 4 games or higher. How often do you see winning (or top 5) line ups that have two 9k+ players at the same position?

    What I think people really tend to forget is that the more expensive players tend to be higher owned due to their higher floor and ceiling. Taking up two spots at a position with chalky players that will have a harder time hitting value is rarely ever going to be a +EV play.

    It’s not true, it is based on the sample size of how many contests you go back and check the top lineups. I doubt you have done this the entire year and have kept a record of how many times someone went double stud at a position. While I will agree with you that the minority of top lineups utilize this construction, it still comes down to the slate and how the players perform. I just think it is a bad thought process to automatically eliminate a possibly simply because it is perceived to fail. Tonight for example, if Lebron and Kawhi both go for 60+ (which is feasible) and you surround them with the correct value plays, your lineup has an excellent chance to finish top five in a contest.

    Yup. Ulis will be a lock if he misses.

  • jtwfantasy

    At first glance Alan Williams seems to expensive, but I’ll probably still roll him out at what will hopefully be a low ownership and pray he doesn’t get in foul trouble. I doubt phx wants Alex Len running up and down the court in this fast paced game.

    gasol or oladipo?

    Ordinarily I would agree with you, but Detroit on the backend of a B2B and the Cavs rested, and the Pistons giving up 115 to the pacers last night, Cavs should be able to roll and I can see big nights for both Kyrie and LBJ.

    Lock and load Conley/Gasol based off of 3 game production log they own the Clippers. And they playing in Memphis. Grit and Grind.

    Hopefully I will hit over 300+ tonight wishful thinking

    I keep saying this, but building your own projections is the way to go.

    Everyone is off Griffin and Paul, and probably Deandre….however…as I said earlier, I think there is some value on Dk to rostering Redick, Crawford, and Rivers on Dk at a combined price of 11.2 k. It’s more of a cash strategy, Yet these three players have averaged 72 dk points per game versus Memphis this year, and you have a 3 game sample size. Cp3 and blake missed 1 game each, so the true average may be 5 to 7 points lower….still, there’s a decent floor at the price, with some ceiling as well. Thing of it is, that you have to roster all 3, cause you can’t accurately project who may have the big game. At least one of my lineups will take this approach tonight.

    Everyone is off the Clippers as they’ve played like garbage since the break and are facing Memphis. While it’s true PFs have had some success against Memphis, 1 rule I almost always follow is avoid players facing Utah, Memphis, San Antonio, and Dallas.

    That’s what I already did last night with my initial build. See you at the top. Or bottom.
    Probably bottom.

    I think most of us wish we had the ability to create accurate projections. I’ve tinkered here and there but never quite get it right. Some of us are just better with numbers than others.

    Did Paul play in those matchups. Not saying Conley is a bad play (only 5 games and RWB is a fade) but it is food for thought.

    I’m doing a LAL/PHX game stack. I rarely do those, but tonight it just feels right.

    It’s not about being 100% accurate, it’s about correctly identifying the players in the best position to succeed. I didn’t project Payton with a triple double, but my model had him tied with Schoder as the top plays at PG (on Yahoo). I don’t mean to come of rude, but IMHO you are playing at a huge disadvantage if you aren’t using a projection system of some sort. The free ones are OK, but you have to consider how many people out there are using those same numbers to build their lineups.

    @superjon said...

    I always look at the past night’s winners, and you rarely (if ever) will see someone play two studs at the same position.

    Exception might be if it’s a short slate.

    Why would that matter? If they are in two different games they have nothing to do with each other.

    Studs are studs, regardless if they are the same position or not. They only time I could remotely see your point was if they were guarding each other.

    IIRC CP3 missed one of those games but played in the other 2.

    2/3 Ironically Conley scored 30 irl points both times vs CP3
