    Anyone else having issues getting projections to load into Lineup HQ?

    They have not made the projections yet.

    Confusing scheduling

    Sunday they decide to lock at 1 PM, right as NFL Sunday was beginning.

    Then they decide to have no game Monday and have two on Tuesday, resulting in a less than optimal 6:30 PM scheduled start and the risk of the first game going to OT and causing issues with the second game.

    Iggy and Kelly O!!!! Gotta play Kawhi. I like Smart but he’ll be chalk. So will Brown. Love BAM and DRob. I’ll have moist of my exposure in Game 1. GL

  • jessedio

    Let’s go Nuggs. Time to finish these bums off.

    Big Jokic is a straight killa.

  • got9forya

    Man I feel this MIA and BOS game is going to be nothing but a defensive battle. Low scoring. I like Brown and Smart along with Dragic and Kelly O. The rest of my guys will be from the Den LAC game most likely.

    I believe you are paying a premium for Celtics guards. Their prices will fall throughout this series. Stevens has no choice but to play more bodies. The Heat go ten, eleven deep.

  • Brendan239

    I want to play Tatum from an ownership perspective and because of his price, but I think after last game he’ll be higher owned than he should be. What does everyone think about him? I’m heavy BAM, then Porter then Green at PF (FD).

    I would need to dig into the games, but in previous meetings, it looks like the Heat kept him in check.

    The biggest difference I saw just at a glance is that in those other matchups, he wasn’t playing as many minutes as he has been in the playoffs.

  • winnerchickendinner

    Going to stack MIA/Bos. Cant find any well correlated line up with jokic and/or Kawhi on Fanduel. Not on Duncan or herro as bos has been good against the three.

  • JSteele

    Miami and Boston are 1 and 2 in playoff defense. I’m expecting a low scoring game but that doesn’t mean players can’t still do well. Especially on FD where bleals are worth 3 points.

  • truegrinder

    its game 7. Kewhi is a lock. What dog do we put in with Kawhi? Tatum? Butler? Murray?

    That’s why I want to take him, he was only 35% on FD last game and Heat keep him in check. However, he’s 1 of prob 6 players that can hit 60 FD points. I take guys sometimes because they are “too expensive” and have bad history. He and BAM together @ PF might be a contrarian move. ESP if they both go for 55+ and everyone below them fall below expectations.

    Yeah you can do that on two game slates. Not the wisest move on full slates other than as a 1 off.

  • JSteele

    My concern with the Celtics is that it’s game 1, they don’t need to play their guys 40+ minutes yet and after a long series with Toronto they may want to limit them to around 36-37.

    Meanwhile the Clippers and Nuggets are all hands on deck playing max minutes.

  • @monarch said...

    1. He is getting disrespected with ownership as of now, looking literally half of kemBUM.

    2. He will draw kemBUM, and wanamaker all game.

    3. He’s gonna be aggressive, we need him to step and outplay kemba this series, he should be able to attack them at will.

    Also a few heat reserves shall be optimal tonight as well…I do declare.

  • monarch

    Also Kemba may have a new lease on life here. The Heat will defend him far differently than the Raptors did. He could have a 50+ game right off the bat and be 8.8k once the sites adjust. Kemba embraced the decoy role last series. He will have cleaner looks here.

    The disrespect to Kemba… How dare you sir.

  • monarch

    Re Dragon: He may draw Kemba. My bet is that Kemba is on Duncan Robinson or Herro.

    If the Celtics want to limit Dragon well Smart and Tatum are plus perimeter defenders. But Dragon gets his off PnR and kickouts. Hes not isoing people out there like Butler. The Heat do have people they can hide Kemba on.

    Pretty likely that Dragic outplays Kemba tonight..
    Highly unlikely Dragic is actually an optimal play at 7300 or 7000 – everyone’s healthy and his ceiling is barely over 6x

  • superjon

    Different touts are loving Herro tonight.

    Which obviously means I’m going to roll the dice and go with Robinson instead
