    Today should be fun!

  • TakeTheOver

    I created dummy line-ups and am going to try to not do any construction until 6pm when hopefully there will be some sense of who is playing and who is not.

  • Joeltimb

    Anyone else think Tyreke is a borderline must play? SA will make it their mission to shut down the Brow. Can Parker fully contain Evans? He should see huge minutes.

  • beachbum0266

    Lakers have 7 healthy players I think. Also playing sac. Good place to look for value

    Absolutely. If Clarkson sits tonight it’ll be the ultimate dart throws at players.

    Happy NBA regular finale day – aka…Vander Blue day!

    Tonight is going to be a s**t show…

    I’m a little surprised we dont have bigger gpp’s on last day…..got to figure most players will go all out to hit the last big one…. we might reach crossover and slam #10 tonight..

    I’m thinking all in on westbrook/kanter and all out of brow tonight with a lot of kings, wolves and lakers..

  • mlapensee

    all out of brow tonight

    Why?

    He’s averaged 23 pts, ~12 boards, 1 assist, 4 blocks and 3 steals vs SA this season.

    Playing in a must win game for NO. Am I missing something?

    Just a gut feeling he wont reach value tonight… 45 yea but I need more for 12k

    I see value at PF tonight that can help me balance out my lineup better with kanter/westbrook/kawhi..

    However, those stats you put up convinced me enough to make a couple gpp lineups with him and russ/kanter… good luck tonight!

  • Joeltimb

    Don’t sleep on guys like B-Lo and Drummond tonight. They’ll be low owned but the match-ups are unreal.

    FYI: value is relative tonight. as someone who will be experiencing the chaos of the final NBA night for the fifth time and has seen how chaotic it can be, be careful. in a lot of ways, if you can field a lineup without a zero in it, you’ll probably be in good shape. take the studs you know will play heavy minutes and take the scrubs you know will play heavy minutes. to put this in perspective, dominant (not just good) winning GPP teams last year were made up of guys like steve blake, jordan crawford and mareerse speights. there were also so many random DNP’s that cashing with zeroes is actually a distinct possibility, even in GPP’s. Also, don’t feel like leaving money on the table is as bad of a thing as it normally is, because it may not be necessary to spend all your cash. Be careful and good luck!

    Reverse engineering night. More “must avoid” than “must plays”.

    Target teams who are playing for something first: Thunder, Bulls, Raptors, Pelicans, Nets, Spurs (Leonard). Then teams who are shorthanded: Lakers, Wolves, Kings

  • rsquier

    BRK, IND, OKC, NOP, all fighting to make playoffs. That’s where I’m going to focus.

    I expect that Brooklyn/Magic game to be a dogfight. Great game to stack.

  • anygame4u

    Focus on the teams that must win, real simple. If not you could roster someone who doesnt play. I will roster 1-3 Lakers on the last game of the day. Casspi is questionable and that makes building a roster even easier.

    Gotta love the Spurs tonight. I like A. Davis but not at todays price.

    Where are you seeing Casspi is questionable?

    And nevermind, I see it now. Gastroenteritis. FUN TIMES

  • silverblazer36

    RWB + Lakers/Kings stack for me on DK. Allows me to get at least 2 more players priced above 6K

  • bbjay20

    SG looks like a disaster today…Harden and a bunch of guys that probably won’t play a ton…Guess I’m on the Oladipo and McLemore trains.

    what about klay? game is projected to be high scoring, and we know how fast he can get his when hot.

    at SG, i also like jabari brown, mclemore, waiters, maybe even jr smith if bron kyrie or love sit.

    ppl liking oldadipo? not going near wade at all today, burnt me to many times

  • anygame4u

    Targeting someone on the Timberwolves, Lakers, and Utah Jazz is a good idea. I think most of us have Westbrook locked in.

    I like Lavine and D. Williams at PG. I’m going cheap at SG. Lock in a solid star at SF. Not sure how PF and Center will look by 4pm est. On paper Kanter should dominate today. Can he put together 2 great games in a row? Looking forward to the last minute roster changes.

    Will Klay and the Warriors play much tonight? I can’t imagine Wade playing much, if at all, with nothing on the line.

    I forgot to mention Brown. He’s in my LU’s over McLemore, and especially if Clarkson doesn’t play.

    I think Morrow could be a worthy pick, too. I do like Oladipo, but will probably use some of the cheap guys to go big elsewhere. What’s wrong with him, though?

  • dominicanpapi

    If you’re looking for more value, look at the Wizards-Cavs game. Sessions, Porter, etc.

  • Jflack3

    RWB + Oladipo + AD and a bunch of sub 4,500 guys

  • anygame4u

    And D. Gooden on the Wizards. Humphries is also worth a look.

    Targeting players on teams with playoff implications is the smartest thing to do today. Nets, Pacers, Pelicans, OKC, etc.
