    Nice slate. Getting the Bucks right will be paramount. We will have lots of questions for Tmarohl

  • jessedio

    IDK about this slate, can’t get a grasp yet. FD tightened up their pricing and there isn’t any value I feel confident about.

    $11.5 for Harden seems pricey.

    You nailed it jessedio. No value today. So, playing Harden becomes a very difficult decision given the crap you’ll be left with. Dk comment.

    Made a Harden/Lebron/AD lineup on FD as a place holder before I start my research. It doesn’t look terrible. Not unlikely for all three to be in the winning FD lineup. Figuring out the other pieces is hard though.

    effing FD, after the fiasco of the “down due to maintenance” issue, I can no longer log into my account. Been using the same password for years. They said it is wrong. I am now locked out and when I request password reset they are to send an email to my account for reset instructions, it never comes. Tried 5 times, reset email never comes. Not in spam either.
    Now I send a request in through support and they tell me to expect 3-5 business days for an answers
    WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    do they have an actual phone #

    I’ve tried a few early line ups. Must say the FD pricing is difficult. Harden takes a huge hit on your line up. Lots of studs to consider. No way you can fit 3 in a lineup. 2 restricts you. 1 stud and you have a nice line up but can you afford to miss out on a 70 plus day from a stud. There aren’t a lot of upper to.mid range guys. Butler, CP3, Nurk, Vic, Warren, McCollum,Middleton, etc..The key is to hit with your scrubs or value. Trent, Cowder, Greens, a Laker or a Rocket goes off. Really hard for me because I’m only playing one $3 line up with a bunch of 25c ones. I will be watching the board for your expertise.

    FWIW, big pace down game for the bucks. Middle had a good matchup because Orlando is weakest defending the SG position.

  • miggs6876

    I’m going to be focusing on the last 2 games. Houston/ OKC and LAL/Port. Both guys have lots of high scoring potential. Portland plays no defense and their offense has been dominate.

    Have no idea what to do at C on fd. 5.8k for Lopez was my initial thought. But, Vuc is tough defensively. Lopez might get 5 plus blocks. On DK he is much cheaper.

  • monarch

    Jimmy Butler, Malcolm Brogdon, Anthony Davis, Chris Paul. Guys with playoff experience that their respective teams went out and acquired one way or another last offseason. I would target them. They are also guys who have been known to sandbag during the regular season which has their prices today far lower than their median playoff game outcome.

  • monarch

    Brolo 4.7 is an awesome DK play. J Val embarrassed him his last time out. I buy into narratives like that plus no Ersan so its just him and his crazy mascot fighting brother.

  • monarch

    Portland plays no D. We are in agreement but…the Lakers do not stress the Portland defense as much because they do not spread the floor and have dribble guys with elite speed like a Levert, Morant, RWB etc. That game might be slower than perceived to be.

    I like them all with the exception of Brogdon. I’m a big fan of his but Miami is excellent defending the PG position. If Warren is limited or out he’s definetly a go for me.

    Is LeBron going to be the primary ball handler?

    Are you forgetting about the Waiters factor?
