    What are your guys thoughts for Xmas day? I’m thinking of fading Greek and AD. On the fence about fading Westbrook.

    So basically, three games against the Sixers last year. Giannis has scored 78.6, 89.7 and 84.6 FD points. You really want to fade that?

    no value to fit in ABC. I currently have raptors guards PG13 and jojo with value. abc too expensive, plus Sixers got al horford now so a tougher matchup for abc.

    That’s funny. There is so much value on this slate it is ridiculous. Pricing is extremely soft on both FD and DK.

    Yeah, play PG13 in the slowest paced game of the day. His range of outcomes is 25 – 50. Giannis will probably play 35 minutes, and give you floor of 50 with upside in the 80’s.

    You know who defends guards really well? Boston!

    Yeah after doing research, Im not fading Greek any more. I will have him in 85% of LUs. I will fade Embid though. I feel like you have to have Harden and Giannis, so it makes it really hard to get Embiid when there are other plays at C

  • siddom

    good points but raptors usage is now funnelled to raptors guards with injuries….who are these value plays you are referring to?

    I have 35 Santa Slam tickets. Giannis and Embiid together will be in at least 20 of them. Not even hard to fit in Giannis, Embiid, and Glass. FD pricing is ridiculously soft.

    George Hill, Rajon Rondo, Lou Williams, Rondae Hollis Jefferson just to name a few.

    the others are fringe value plays imo, and RHJ is over priced at 5.3k….like I said value is tough on DK. ABC is a great play but though to fit him in on DK

  • tmarohl

    Need more? Wes Matthews, Damion Lee, James Ennis, Danny Green, KCP, Willie Caulie Stein. Slate is littered with value and we haven’t even had any guys scratched yet.

    I was talking FD pricing. RHJ is only $4100

    ok yeah FD value is loaded. u fading Lowry even with the usage?

  • monarch

    I’m seeing a lot of pricing errors for tomorrow slate

  • jayzee666

    Literally my mostest favoritest day of the DFS season!
    I can’t REAPER/Snowflake/Bust anyone!!
    I bet they created this day off so the players can have a stress free day without my doom cloud hanging over their heads!!!

    Only at home! Lowry is a fantastic play. He could go off like Dinwiddie did on the post Thanksgiving game.

  • JSteele

    Beer likes Harrell, PG, RHJ, Jamal Murray, DRuss for Christmas

    Gross….at least we can begin to narrow the player pool lol.

  • JSteele

    The general build the last few years for the optimal lineup appears to be 1 stud with the rest balanced. Giannis last year, Embiid the year before that.

  • monarch

    To be fair….whats the upside for Harrell vs the Lakers? PG is bleh with everyone playing. RHJ is okay, Blue Arrow I can always go for. D Russ, I’ll keep taking the discount on Burks. I’ll really only play D Russ if Draymond were to be out.

    The upside is that he tells everyone to play Harrell and then he fades him and gets ahead. Harrell is an awful play against that Interior D. He’s cheap though and has “shown” upside at his price, but totally disregards the matchup.

  • JSteele

    On DK, i’m having a hard time getting to Giannis. But my lineup with Embiid looks nice.

    Burks is a solid play, yet his minutes are affected by GR3. I’ll like the play much better if he remains out. Yet I’ll still like it.

    Feels like a Harden game.

    I’m trying to make Giannis-Harden work in some lineups.
