    Lowry going home for a playoff game worth anything on narrative street? Looked at his games in Philly the last two years and nothing special there, but this is the playoffs.

  • TomBradyBlueMamba

    Anyone has a good feel on Philly? They are tough to predict. Embiid / Simmons / Harris / Butler all potentially can steal the work. Embiid inevitably should conquer the hold Gasol has on him during his career right? First home game in round 2 could be the spot. He is risky at his price though for sure, given the situation. Simmons feels due for his 50+ game but he was used strongly on defense last game and it worked. Butler the Raptor slayer averages 50 DK points against the Raptors in his career last 2 years, 17-19. But he did get held back in game 1 so can he do it again. We know he is primarily a defender and game closer. J.J. Redick sure could help his team out better. This is a tough team to predict in a single game showdown

    Maybe 50 cents?

    If Brown keeps Jimmy “Don’t call me James” Butler on Lowry, don’t see him scoring more than his average low- to mid-30s again. Really interested to see how Nurse adjusts to Brown’s Game 2 adjustments, as I expect Brown to keep Simmons on Kawhi and Embiid on Siakam again since that worked out pretty well.

    I hope Scott sits (although I don’t think he will). I don’t like anyone below $4,200. Taking another shot at Ibaka again. I know he won’t get many minutes, but he can do a lot with 20 minutes. Lowry is my Captain.

  • yisman

    tinkering with my 2 day lineups but on Yahoo I had Harris/Harkless and on DK I had Curry/Harkless so my lineups are probably dead regardless.

  • ASitar

    If Ennis plays, is Scott the play or Ennis. I can’t see them completely benching Ennis w the way he’s playing

  • sox9

    Two ways I can cash. Leonard has an off-game of 40 fantasy points. Butler+Reddick put up 75-80 fantasy points combined. Actually, I may need both to happen.

  • sanders_tj

    I’ve had really good success playing PG’s against Philly all year so gut tells me to shove Lowry in at MVP spot on the FD $10 contest… gotta be contrarian as the vast majority would be shoving either Butler or Kawhi there, no?

    This is playoff Lowry though

  • NDNole

    One lineup. Done tinkering. Hoping reddick gets about 35 points at 33% ownership or less.

    Yeah his usage has been dreadful. Gotta get contrarian on these showdown slates though.

    That is true. I think I have him in there once.

    Since Ennis returned from injury he’s 20 mins w/ Scott playing.

    Thanks. Ima roll w him

    1 in 4 chance of that.

    For some reason Leonard’s dK pts jump 122% vs Philly.
    Thats 56 vs usual 46

    could happen,
    but that’s like a girl wishing her guy will change. ;)

    I like the odds of Monroe outscoring Embiid better.

    But hey!
    Embiid is projected @ 52% ownership.

  • Element828

    Embiid has been sooo bad in this series but Idk what to do…Gasol on embiid and Leonard on Simmons has me going to Harris/Butler and reddick feels like a good price. Leonard and Lowry my fav raptors. Have some interest in Gasol but I feel like he will get 20-25 fpts

  • BerkeleyBoss

    I actually think its somewhat likely that Embiid is the highest scorer in this game. Wouldn’t be shocked if he came out quick and put up 25 in the 1st quarter. Rolling out a couple FD showdown lineups with him at MVP.

    I’m on the same page. Hopefully our other spots are diff. Good luck to you

    Monroe and Scott officially GTD, Embiid-style

    76ers love this

    Monroe was Probable after shoot around.

    I hope scott heals his heel 1 or 2 more games.
    me love more monroe, but he might not see floor w/ his bad defense

    Maaaaannnne, why do you gotta say that? He’ll be his lowest owned these playoffs and he ALWAYS can crack 70 DK points. I had to add one more w him at C. 3 total (Lowry, Kawhi, Embiid). I’ll either be giving you a high five or asking you to PayPal me $18

  • TomBradyBlueMamba

    Leonard feels like the fade. He shouldered all of the work last game and it ended in failure so you would think they look to get the team more involved this game

  • Element828

    Thanks!! Yeah embiid ownership at 52% makes me underweight on him also. Good luck to you also

    Haha. Just feels like his minutes should be back in the 30’s & he doesn’t have the stomach thing anymore, so It’s just Gasol’s defense. He’s back at home and I’d like to think that somebody as dominant as Embiid can figure it out and this is as good a time as any for a breakout game.

    I still like Kawhi to outscore him, but it’s well within the range of outcomes!
