    Lowry (6800) and DeRozan (7000) are tooo cheap on FD.

    I agree. The question is whether or not that game stays competitive. Dame dropped a 70 burger last time they played the Pels, LMA always seems to beast against GS. My first inclination is to stack Portland, not sure which 4 guys I want to use other than Dame. And SF is by far the weakest position, not sure what I wanna do there…

    probably because they’re trash in the playoffs

    Can you figure out a way to stack that game? I feel like there won’t be much defense played.

    Unfortunately, one might have to use Evan Turner in a game stack. He’s min priced, but he’ll need to get steals & blocks to exceed value. Not sure I wanna go there. I like Aminu’s price on FD, he went over 7x his current price the last time these teams played.

  • tmarohl

    Wade and Evan Turner look too cheap for first game as well.

  • telestraightshooter

    Mirotic.

    Mirotic is priced 3k under performance since he shaved.

    And he averages 1.39 fppm vs Portland over the last 2 years.

    Yeah, he’s a core player.

    Like graphite is to a nuclear reactor.

  • ASitar

    Are 4 Pels too many?

    Are Wade and Rondo a must as playoff veterans at their price?

    Who is the 10% owned player that’s likely to hit 9x?

    Do you think Dewayne Wade ends up getting more run then Tyler Johnson?

  • Kmasonbx

    I’m so glad the sites are so slow to raise Mirotic’s price to where it should be. I’ve locked him in 3 straight games, tomorrow will be 4. If there’s enough value you can play the Pels top 4 guys in 1 lineup since they account for such a high percentage of the team’s fantasy output.

    No way I am not playing Rondo. Something about him when shit gets real.

    Floor general. Look at what he did with Chicago last year in the first round (before he got hurt).

    Glad we are back to real players and not guessing who the bench guy that will get 8x

    Eh…you’re still going to have to take a chance or two on some bench players as it’s a small slate. You just won’t have to be guessing who will actually play. Minutes are a bit easier to project as well.

    I agree, you will have to play bench players here but what I meant was the G league player that will get 8x :)

    Probably similar minutes.

    Exactly, you’re making more an educated guess, then a random dart throw, when it comes to certain players.

  • tmarohl

    All teams will be running tighter rotations. Often time only 7-8 deep. The only exception is if you run into a blowout type of situation. Starters will be playing max minutes. The 9th and 10th guys on the bench who get minutes in the regular season will see their roles significantly reduced or eliminated. Keep that in mind when building your rosters. Minutes = gold in the playoffs.

    But isn’t there always some random 6th man or just some guy being a filler for 10-15 minutes who breaks the slate lol. Buy your spot on the Playoffs are about minutes

    What was said, was usually the 8th, 9th and 10th guy on the bench dont play much.

    Not the 6th man. This happens because usually the starters are playing close to 40 minutes, if not more when the game is close.

    yes they are and roberson last year killed it in the playoffs i normally play the cheap defensive player on the team guaranteed 30-35 mins and can shoot a 3

    That’s the example I was thinking of…… Dude came in and killed

  • ASitar

    Aminu looks like the guy that could go overlooked with his recent production that could smash. I think one of Murray or Cook from that game could go off. Winning short slate GPPs is picking players from the least “exciting game” in hopes they go off. IE, San Antonio stack could win it for someone Saturday if LMA, Murray, Anderson go off and AD puts up 45 points. I’m only doing 3 DK $10 GPPs and I’ll have one that is less sexy.

    yes he did i had him at like 8 percent owned for the first 3 games they played then ppl caught on lol
