    Wonder if there is gonna be a repeat in minutes for the pelicans starters which caused the warriors to match? Jrue for example 47minutes last game

    I learned my lesson with this on the mil game… I will onley take centers and pf against boston they seem to find a way to shut down the main guards on a team… I did this the last few games with boston playing and it has work really well

    Middleton didn’t have much of a problem against Boston.
    The players that have problems against Boston are forwards like Giannis and Simmons that rely on attacking the rim for most of their points. I.E. guys who don’t have an outside shot. I said yesterday the Simmons would be the bust of the night because he would get the Giannis stacked lane treatment and be forced to pass the ball or take bad shots.

    Here’s the key

    You want a mix of guys that

    A. Are overpriced compared to their season averages but are hot. Think Lebron last night

    B. Underpriced but in a slump. Think Love

    Tonight’s A is KD and B is Gobert and CP3

    tonight will not be a night like last night. Actually A would be harden not durant for the price….. I think durant will be in the winning lineup but it will be the guys who pick the right punts…. I think its a night you have to have one punt on your team not 2…. gobert will stay around the 38 dk points i almost guarntee he will not get 50dk points against capela…Tonights Love will be Mirotic that is my bold call anyways…I am so happy i was 100 percent on love last night though great dk night

    Every night has been like last night

  • jessedio

    Missed playing last night because the freaking game was on at 4p.m….WTF

    Anyway. Tonight is a bit tough on DK. Lots of price drops and underpriced players. I really hate the way Chris Paul plays basketball but his price is tempting. NO and GS will be mega chalk since their prices are so cheap.

    how you figure the highest lineup had player A in it “Lebron” the classic style games anyways… the 2 game slate before that was a balanced lineup that one with no durant/curry highest stud was lowry and green. Then it switched to more of a star and scrub.. Not trying to argue brother just doing my research as well to best approach this slate tonight

  • BerkeleyBoss

    I’m prob gonna have some Pelicans starting lineup stacks on DK . I have the top 4 point per dollar plays as Mirotic, Rondo, Holiday, Davis. They refuse to price them up, I don’t get it. Last game those 4 combined for 206.9 and they are a combined 31.8k.

    You were so right about Simmons, wish I’d have taken your advice. Made sense, don’t know why I didn’t.

    I better not lose to Zaza Mcghee or Nene LUs… There are only 2 centers worth a damn on FD…

  • P0key

    @ashaff716 said...

    My budget wants me to punt on Exum (FD) … thoughts?

    Him being at home maybe he’ll get to 20 points tonight…

    middleton had a couple good games against them but not a great series for him at all. Prolly why they lost but they are great at shutting down the other teams studs. Plus middleton can shoot and doesn’t rely on layups, he isn’t a bad perimeter shooter.

    The way its been going for me watch ariza go off for 53 tonight lol. Always seems to be that one guy who just does what he normally doesn’t. And im often not on the right side of that.

  • sox9

    toughest choice may be Mitchell or Jrue. Dominant scorer on team in a slow paced game who often doesn’t stack the box, or volatile scorer in a fast-paced game?

  • sox9

    Rondo, AD, Mirotic could all outscore Jrue—Who outscores Mitchell on UT? Of course JRU could put up 50-60 fantasy points.

    Game 1 – 31 Points, 8 Rebounds, 6 assists, 2 steals, 1 block, 3 turnovers = 55.6 FD Points
    Game 2 – 25 Points, 4 Rebounds, 1 assist 3 turnovers. = 28.3 FD Points
    Game 3 – 23 Points, 8 Rebounds, 7 assists, 1 steal, 1 block, 1 turnover = 48.1 FD Points.
    Game 4 – 23 Points, 6 Rebounds, 2 Assists, 2 steals, 2 blocks, 2 turnovers = 43.2 FD Points.
    Game 5 – 23 Points, 3 Rebounds, 2 Assists, 1 Turnover = 28.6 FD Points
    Game 6 – 16 Points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist, 4 Turnovers = 19.5 FD Points
    Game 7 – 32 points, 2 rebounds, 3 assist, 1 block, 2 Turnovers = 39.9 FD Points.

    I guess you are right. 2 Excellent Games, 2 really good games, 2 average games, 1 below average.
    He was not why they lost though. I blame that on bad coaching, Jabari Parker and Bledsoe. If Parker didn’t have his head up his ass the first two games of the series with his pouting and whining to the media about playing time the Bucks most likely would have won game 1 in Boston. Bledsoe didn’t decide to show up until about game 6.

    Or they could have played jabari like they should have in the first place those 1st two games.

    They did and immediately pulled him because he was -14 in 15 minutes in game 1, and -15 in 10 minutes in game 2 and didn’t even attempt to play any defense in the first two games. Once the rest of the team told him to STFU and play hard he turned it around with a little bit of effort the rest of the series.
    I can’t wait for that POS to be off the team.

  • Supersharpie

    Paul/Tucker or Holiday/Looney for GPP?

    Been going back and forth on this for a while.

  • ASitar

    If you’re looking to get off Burke (like me) switch to Moore for $1k less (DK). Moore probably has a higher ceiling even if Rubio is out, and the same floor.

  • telestraightshooter

    Burks over Exum

    AB plays best unscripted, which does not fit coach Quinn’s style, but plays tend to devolve to that vs tight playoff defenses.

    He’s getting mins sans the Spanish floor general & the jazz would rather have the ball in his hands instead of Exum.

    Yes not every night is stars and scrubs.

    But ever night the top LUs will have a mix of hot and cold players

    The ones you want to fade are the hot players that are underpriced.

    Like I think Jrue should be a little higher on FD. He could be in the winning LU but I’ll take my chances and fade him tonight.
