    Horford?

    Bucks have been struggling with versatile bigs who can play on the perimeter most of the year. They aren’t going to suddenly figure out how to stop them now.

    I think Durant’s a good play too, of course. Probably going to be looking at starting a lot of line ups with Harden (or ABC), Middleton, Durant, Horford. Doesn’t leave much money, but there’s a few guys around 4.5K that based on history and minutes could do enough to make it work.

    Playoff Al …. Curry is due and on DK looking nice.

    Yeah makes sense. Just scared about Harden and ABC putting up another dud lol

    Understandable. Don’t think it happens though. My hesitations on either and really more so Durant is Curry’s upside is similar at a much cheaper price and doesn’t have you scrapping down to a guy like Ilyasova.

    I believe Harden exceeds the 55 DK points he got in game 1 (he won’t get 4 blocks again, but I expect an improvement on the 9-28 shooting and maybe a couple more assists) and definitely expect ABC to deliver a bigger game as well.

  • tmarohl

    If the Bucks want to win, it will be cause all three of Middleton, ABC and Bledsoe have much better games than they did in the first one. I am locking in Middleton.

  • ASitar

    Mirotic is finding his way into a lot of my builds. At $3,500 he doesn’t need a lot to hit value and if his shot is falling he could approach 10x. Just doing 2. One w Harden/ABC, one more w Kyrie/Durant. Horford and Green in both

  • Theguy49503

    I think I got way to much Terry Rozier lol

  • Theguy49503

    Pat Connaughton gonna get the start tonight is Brown is out?

  • smokeyca14

    I have no curry abc or harden in my first lineups, wth?

  • me_mike84

    i’d rather have harden over giannis if spending up on one of the two.

    as far as the point guards…..curry is too appealing at 7,900 on DK. he and harden will be in my lineups.

    and if you don’t go for durant that still leaves enough money to still fit two of either horford, middleton, irving, paul.

    That’s pretty much everyone’s thought, right? Harden is probably going to have way higher ownership than Giannis I would think.

  • ASitar

    Tonight is going to be about picking the right mid-tier guy. Harden, Durant, ABC, Curry, Horford, Kyrie will get theirs. Who between Middleton, Klay, Tatum, Gordon, Brown, Hayward, Morris, Iggy is what’s going to differentiate. I hope Baynes is limited because I’m all over Morris.

    I’d expect the gap to be minimal. Harden will be a bit higher, because of the conceived higher ceiling and this slates much heavier on quality cheap forward options. On the flip side everyone knows Giannis isn’t getting 37 DK points again. People will have that same mindset of, people will be off him after last game and I’m going to get him at lower ownership due to recency bias, but no one really thinks like that anymore. They’ll both be over 50% owned easily.

    i would think the same. but i’m ok w/ the higher ownership as long as he produces the way we think he should

    Kyrie, ABC, Eric Gordon or Beard, Curry, Hayward?

    Interesting. I’m in the camp that Harden is a clear cut better play, and as you mentioned there’s more forward options than guard.

    Morris jumped out at me as well.

  • Nmj4786

    Isn’t game after a dud Giannis a thing??

  • superjon

    ABC bounce back and back to the well with Horford

    Also this is a Klay breaking the slate kind of night.

    Im calling it now. ABC will be 33% owned or less.

    I could end up being wrong. I just don’t think recency bias is as much a thing these days, especially on a 2 game slate. Most people will have multiple line ups and most will split their exposure between Harden and ABC, and then throw in the people who will jam them both in. Of course there will also be people who make line ups fading both, but those will be much more sparse.
