    super buck no blog today?

    Sorry no time today, I don’t like to post one unless I have enough time to really give out my reasoning for my picks. In general, my fd thoughts for today are that Aldridge is a must play given that he was brought to Spurs to help the winning tradition and its an elimination game and he is playing a position with a lot of scarcity. Even though it is chalk, I believe it will be difficult to not go with a pairing of PatPat and Aldridge at PF. I also love Winslow paired with Leonard and Westbrook with Parker. My biggest question marks for the day are which cheap ass c to go with and whether I should go two cheap sg and try to spend up from Parker to Dragic or Lowry or go with one cheap sg and spend up to Wade.

    I delete all Lineups that either mistakenly not entered or due to site constraints, there weren’t any low-stakes GPP’s offered. Had 320 pts on DK’s 2-night Fri/Sat in a free, private contest, and it stung as that Quarter Coin would have been worth $300 or so. Fairly sure, as I didn’t see any DK’s scores higher anywhere. It’s all a lucky bounce here and there anyway. I’d have tied for 10th in a DK’s GPP last night had Lillard made that last three. But that shit happens all the time. I didn’t lose money.

    So it looks like we all hoping for a Spurs and Heat win just to keep NBA DFS going a little longer this season..lol

  • Tammy409

    Very little intrigue or maneuverability and thus ‘variance’ to seek on this slate it seems. Only wildcards that stick out (please chime in) are the injuries to Deng and Carroll opening up more minutes for Haslem & McBuckets potentially (Heat) and on the Raptors’ side? Who knows. None of the backups have been playing and they could move Norman Powell back in to SF position where he’d had success earlier this spring. Thoughts?

    True. Been experimenting a little with MLB and that’s really like throwing darts.

  • Tammy409

    Oh’, and WHAT are the Odds SAS finally put that E.European Center to use. That kid can play but hasn’t. I don’t get it with Duncan’s stuggles any more than I understand Miami and Stoudamire,k save for the fact that they are Team Vets and in Stoudamire’s case; he makes an awful lot of money to do not much at all, so are they still stubbornly hoping to get some ROI? He’s older than me. I’m on Social Security.for chrissakes and could do what he does…. Let him rest.

    Yeah they need to play Boban. He is good

    @superbuckwild

    Sneaky as in he won’t be over 15% owned. There is no such thing as a true sneaky play on a 2 game slate. There’s value and then there’s straight up stupidity. Richardson=low owned/ under the radar w/ potential upside due to injuries and if wade duds then he gets more run time. K martin/ Foye= dumb plays. I also feel a Duncan play tonight. Should be way low owned in a must win game.

  • zpa1989

    looks like carroll will play, deng will too most likely. anyone going to use either being a little banged up?

    again feel like its one of those things where i fade, they do really well, if i play them, they stink. might have to have a few shares to hedge my bets.

  • bossladii380

    I came in 4th place and won $75 in baseball. It took me damn near the whole day to research pitchers and batters. I ended up giving myself a migraine. The MLB grindown article might as well be written in Japanese with all those stats that I don’t understand because I HATE baseball!!!!!! I will be going through serious DFS withdrawl until the NFL season starts. Unfortunately, Pops will NOT use Boban unless there is a blowout.

  • zpa1989

    screw it rolling the dice with deng and carroll in a few whos with me? am i crazy or what

    Thats pretty shocking. I figured if you have Danny Green you were pretty close to solidified… then throw Derozan on top of that. Shhhiiiidddd. Unlucky stuff for you man.

    I also had Ed Davis who played well I believe Joe Johnson, I think it was Ross or Harkless that sunk me…

  • bossladii380

    Harkless had 19.6 pts and was 4.1% owned in my contest

  • Mindofigor

    I’m playing the players nobody is talking about in this thread

    KING BOBAN!!!!!!

    No NBA coach that wants to keep their job is putting in Richardson in a must win situation because WADE is throwing up a dud, Wade is getting a crap load of minutes tomorrow. K martin and R Foye are NO PLAYS not dumb ones, even in a 2 game slate.

    so your saying richardson and probably gerald green won’t see much run tomm since its a must win game? i think winslow is a better play hes a solid defender they need him out there. you agree? wade is a great play but will be super chalky. going to have to differentiate elsewhere to make a competitive GPP lineup if you want to use wade.

    derozan on the road scares me. i trust lowry more now. two pat seems like a good play hes been getting the minutes just not productive but i can see him getting 20 which on this slate for his price is all you need.

  • IronMonkey415

    That is exactly what he is saying and he is right……..BUT…I still want to take a chance on Richardson, If I lose I lose.

    like I mentioned before, I love Winslow. I think many will try to put both Leonard and Durant in with Wade and Aldridge. I don’t think it is out of the realm of possibility for Winslow to get 20 at his salary and Durant get 35 and if that extra money is able to move you up from a Cory Joseph to Kyle Lowry, and from Duncan to Biyombo that is well worth it…

    Yeah, you’re right, it couldn’t have been Harkless, I think it was actually Carroll that I had…
