    On second thought. I like Morris as my guy off the bench.

  • ASitar

    Let’s play who wants to split $100k 100 ways!

  • jason88cubs

    I mean it makes sense to play Simmons and Embiid together right?

  • wolverinezack

    You can go Simmons, Embiid, Tatum, Smart and fill in the other spot pretty easily. The only issue is do you go Simmons or Embiid on your 1.5x spot on FD.

    Like ASitar says, who wants to split 100k 100 ways. It’ll probably be more than that unless some obscure player like Jabari Bird goes off.

  • KindGuy

    It’s time for you NBA fiends to join the MLB fun. Unless, like ASitar said, you want to split $100,000 100 ways.

  • ScofieldReturns

    What multiplier should we look for in single game slates?

  • ashaff716

    so… everyones question… MVP Embiid or Simmons

    I think I’m going Simmons

  • P0key

    I’m so bad at these single game slates…i should just wait and lose my money tomorrow…

  • ASitar

    I am doing just one LU. If history repeats itself, Embiid outscores Simmons, Boston plays bigs (Baynes), Morris and Redick put up numbers.

    Building around Embiid and Horford.

    GL tonight.

    the other 2 capable guys are horford and rozier… you can basically bet on 1 of those 4 being the top scorer of the night

    I don’t think you can fit all 4 unless you want to choose like min priced guys who will get 5 FPs.

    I’m ready to split that 100k DK prize. Chalk city tonight. I’m just playing the most logical lineup within the salary cap. Simple right?

  • wolverinezack

    On FD you can go Simmons, Smart, Embiid, Tatum, Morris

    Gotta figure that LU is chalk.

    Im stuck between that LU and Embiid, Rozier, Horford, Reddick, and Morris

    That’s the dummy LU I just entered, so yeah…chalk.
    I don’t know if I even want to play this, honestly. Feels like I got away with something cashing my Showdown LUs on Saturday, but that was because of fading the chalk Pelicans. Don’t know how you fade the chalk Sixers and Celtics today. Tomorrow’s slate looks so much better, maybe I should just take the day off…

  • superjon

    Smart is starting

    Easy fade imo

  • superjon

    Smart probably starting sorry

  • ASitar

    Anyone doing a Simmons/Embiid/Horford LU on DK? 2 Celtics “bench” guys included of course. I’m thinking people will use it. Seems like the only contrarian route to go is to fade the top 3 players, but the odds of none of them putting up 40+ is about zero to none. Oh well, hopefully my single bullet will net $1,820.

  • wolverinezack

    I’m taking today off. Contemplating even playing tomorrow. Even the 2 game slates are hard to come by. You miss on one player and you’re shot. I mostly just do the smaller single entries and either chalk goes off and you share first place with multiple others or you share min cash with so many others that min cash is actually losing cash. I hit for 1500 last Friday and then 500 this past Friday. Might be better off just sitting on the profits and transitioning to baseball occasionally. The degenerate in me will probably still drop some LUs in on the 2 game slates

    thats my lineup and I dont care how many other ppl have it tbh.

    Will Simmons guard Rozier? Haven’t watched many sixers games

  • callmetouch

    Feels like Monroe or Baynes will smash tonight

    Yes, I would think Simmons will likely guard Rozier on the perimeter. But the Sixers can go a lot of different ways. My guess would be Simmons on Rozier, Redick on Smart, Covington on Tatum, Saric on Ojeleye and Embiid on Horford. But the size and versatility of Simmons and Covington really allow the Sixers to defend them many different ways. If Baynes is in the game, Embiid would likely guard him. That would probably move Simmons on Horford and could mean Covington and/or Redick on Rozier at times.

    Celtics will likely put Ojeleye on Simmons. Horford forced to guard Embiid (unless Baynes is in the game). Rozier may end up on Covington a bunch or Redick. Tatum on Saric. Smart on Redick or Covington.

    But again, both teams have a lot of defensive versatility so I think you could see many different match ups at times. Celtics may need more of Baynes against Embiid. If Baynes is in and Ojeleye out, Horford would probably end up on Simmons. Should be interesting.
