    I hope people play Myers Leonard and Vonleh tonight. They suck. If they were any good, Terry Stots would be playing them more mins. But they have always been stuck in timeshares or getting DNP-CD.

    you think they play aminu at small ball 5? you think he can bang around with len/williams? i think leonard will have to play at least 20 to 25 minutes but your right i doubt he does anything productive with them. i can see harkless at the 4 with aminu at the 5 crabbe 3 with lillard and cj. so that means the suns line up with uliss booker warren chriss and williams/dudley? what do you think

    I’m not a Blazers fan nor do I watch their games. But I do think Aminu will get run tonight and he should be the small ball 4 and whoever they decide to run at Center. That’s why I think Aminu is a safe play at PF but not sure if he will be in the winning GPP lineup. The rest of the scenario you mentioned could happen too. Myers should play but I can see not doing much with his playing time.

    Anyways, I need to snap my 3 night losing streak. There aren’t many games today but there’s a lot tomorrow and I’m sure that’s because there are no NBA games on Monday due to the NCAA Title Game. So I have tonight and tomorrow to snap this losing skid. I’m torn on what to do at PG and SF.

    Pg you have some guys in good spots ,lillard with no nurkic , although on dk he’s close to 10k
    Below him Payton/rondo/Rubio
    I may make 1 lillard lineup but for gpp I need a ceiling type game from him. I think I’d rather have the extra $ by playin someone below him and upgrade elsewhere
    SF butler is not cheap but probably one of your safer option. Wiggins price isn’t bad but it could be the Rubio/towns show.
    Warren is similar price to Wiggins, I’m not sure how well Portland is vs SF

    The best option is a dude named Von-Meyers Leonard

  • cleanslate

    Devin Booker will make or break the slate on FD tonight. If he gets rested and it’s not announced until after lock, the tilt by everyone on here will be in full effect. I really wish that game wasn’t starting so late, he’s the ultimate gamble tonight and will probably be super high owned, so if you fade him and he ends up sitting that will be huge in GPPs.

    he almost rested the other night

  • Lawnboy88

    How risky is it to fade McCollum and Towns on this slate with 50 lineups?

  • cleanslate

    He has a bum ankle and the Suns are tanking. He was rested 2 games ago and was questionable heading into his last game. He played the last game at home, but they are on the road again and the last game he rested he was on the road.

    None of this means he is out, but he is certainly a risk.

    yeah made me diversify a bit more

    GL everyone!

  • AtomicCity42

    GL tonight Fellas. Really think Aminu does well tonight.

  • AtomicCity42

    My sleeper for tonight was Derrick Jones Jr

  • RobertoTomba

    Booker is waaaay to expensive. Remember way back when he was under $6000 (a week ago)? The 91 point (FD) game caused an over-correction. He’s going against the best defense in the league against SGs. He might be worth playing against Houston tomorrow, but that’s about it at 8K.

  • sanders_tj

    So with the ORL BKN game with the closest spread in the main slate, and the highest implied points, where is the hidden value in the Nets? RHJ has hit 5x for several games in a row now so I’m locking him up. Anyone else from BKN?

  • jadoninc

    Butler is 40% owned in the dk 4pt play.

    I hate doing it, but I also have Lopez. He should do well, but he’s burned me twice lately. If it made sense for the rest of my lineup, I would have also had Lin.

    I do have a few on the other side of the ball, however.

    its all about the price.

    They are bad players. But for 3K on DK, you take Leonard, and you can have the 60 point studs you want. And if Leonard puts the full effort in, he’ll get you 25 fantasy points, thats over 8x.

    The times I lose the most often, is because I overlook the “guy who sucks” who is minimum price. Not cuz of HIS performance, but because he opens up the chance to get more studs in the lineup.

  • zpa1989

    anyone think CJ dame and aminu all hit value on FD tonight in what will likely be a blowout? i feel like you have to fade on of those 3, and maybe leave some salary on the table.

    I agree but raw points are all that will matter given the overall player pool and surplus of value on FD tonight, and it’s hard to see many SG’s outscoring Booker outside of CJ on FD tonight. Having to take 2 SG’s on that site on a night where only 2 SG’s have a realistic floor of 30+ points by necessity puts him in play, as you can make up for his lack of point per dollar value elsewhere. If he plays, my projections have him as a lock at the SG2 spot.

    Even if it’s a blowout, they will play into the 4th. Maybe not the entire 4th, but McCollum/Aminu play the rotation that starts the 4th, so I expect them to play at least 6-8 mins in the 4th…and that’s if it’s a blowout, which is like 20+ points and unlikely. Plus, they need to win this game, so Stotts isn’t going to rest anyone even if it’s a 20 point game heading into the 4th.
