    This forum would be pretty boring and entirely useless if every post was just people saying who they liked on this slate every day. How dare anyone question why someone likes a specific player or question their thinking behind a certain play. Maybe the person asking the questions is just trying to get into someone’s mind and see what maybe they’re not seeing. Ben said he liked Kieff. Then someone brought up his foul troubles. Ben said he thought being back in DC it might help with the foul trouble. Problem is Keiff had awful foul trouble in game 2 in DC, and every game since. It also stems back from the MMA comments so there’s also something tangible to attach the troubles to that might make it more than a fluke. No Ben is saying he received bullshit about his comment. Fail to see how a discussion about Kieff’s foul trouble, that is entirely legitimate is “bullshit.”

    Got ya, what you said is valid. Guess that the difference between “bullshit” and “discussion” just comes down to perception/sensitivity lol.

    How do you guys feel about the C position tonight? The two starting centers with favorable pricing (Howard/Lopez) are risky because of minutes. The other two starting centers with stable minutes (Gortat/Horford) are risky because of production relative to their price. Any strong feelings towards any center? I’m leaning towards Horford. Howard and Felicio also in consideration

  • jessedio

    I was saying reason for foul trouble was because of millsaps comments. 2nd game was in D.C. But refs were influenced by millsaps comment. Then game 3/4 in ATL were refs were def gonna have a quick whistle. My point is he shouldn’t be in foul trouble tonight because time has passed since comments and they are back in D.C. is this unreasonable?

    So you are saying the refs from game 2 haven’t done anything but hang around the house and did some gardening or took a few naps maybe gave the wife a little pickle tickle but definitely haven’t done any work or refereeing since then? Now they have calmed down and won’t call fouls because they are in a better mood after over a week off?

    Personally, I think you overweight the impact of post-game comments immensely.

    Playing 1 LU tonight; Wall/”(player-popup)Gerald Green”:/players/gerald-green-13374 or IT/Otto…feels like a coin flip

    I’m heavy on Horford. I think he’s got the best floor/ceiling combo. I think Howard was more of a squeaky wheel situation last game. Plus I expect him to be somewhat high owned based on his last game. I may use Felicio as a punt, as I don’t expect the Bulls starters to be on the floor the last 3-4 minutes of the game, but I could very well be wrong. On DK I may use a little Millsap at C, as I don’t like anyone else really and I hate going much more than 50-60% on anyone when I usually only do 10 line ups.

  • Beavsftw

    Putting THJ in my lineup cuz he’s bound to do something eventually. right?

  • MrPerfekt7

    So ain’t tryna read everything but who is it for the win.

    Liking Wall/Milsap/Green/Horford

    Actually thinking about going a different route with Wall/IT as my studs as opposed to Butler and one of those two. I can put Crowder in at SF in Jimmy’s place which I don’t hate. Really pains me as a Bulls fan not to play Jimmy and have some rooting interest involved but I think the Bulls get destroyed and this ends Friday night personally.

    It depends how much you weigh the calls going the hometown teams way. If you think DC gets a favorable whistle tonight, it’s not unreasonable.

    any love for howard tonight??

    Everytime a big name player or coach bitches about fouls they always call next game tighter

    Sorry forgot to quote the post above any love for Howard.

  • lorioj

    Did yahoo remove daily fantasy from their app today?

  • Ryan61290

    I pretty much read the thread from start to tip off every day and I don’t think I heard any mention of Rozier. I’m going 40% Rozier in my tourneys tonight because a) lineup differential on two game slate and b) Brad Stevens said he wanted to play him more to handle the ball. At 2.2k on DK, I’m fine with 15-20 min with 10-12x upside.

    Need some feedback

  • MrPerfekt7

    So will Dj Canaan perform for us or flip like Grant?

  • Theguy49503

    Is Shroder worth his price?

    Do you realize that the referee crews rarely coach back to back games in the same series with the exception of the finals?

    good luck winning tonight if you don’t play Ersan
