    Hard not to just go all in on Ibaka+Gasol at 3600+4800.

  • Element828

    Gotta be careful with Ibaka though…they could go smaller with van fleet and powell

  • Morphitrix

    Ibaka has looked pretty weak in this series and I don’t think he’ll be breaking out even with Siakam out. My guess is the production from Siakam mostly shifts to KL, Gasol and maybe Lowry, but I also feel like they’re going to get blown out which might lead to more minutes for bench players.

    Kawhi will have to do to much on his own again, so I am locking him and fading Ibaka in the majority of my lineups (FanDuel)

    Have 1 lu with Baka, he needs to deliver, just in case. Have Powell in a couple of lus. Think Embid imposes his will again, hopefully his knee and stomach are up to it

  • Neilj907

    Right now I’m fading jokic but it makes me nervous he can always be a slate breaker especially if kanter is not 100%

    If they have to count on VanVleet for scoring they’re dead, IMO…he’s been awful in this series. This game feels like a potential blowout if Siakam doesn’t play. Hot referee take: Ref assignments for TOR/PHI (Davis, Brothers, Tiven) favor home team, assignments for DEN/POR (Foster, Phillips, Collins) favor lots of foul calls LOL

  • Morphitrix

    Pretty sure Embiid’s stomach problem is fully passed, and he had the knee issue before that, which led to his 2 bad games to start the series.

    Yeah i wish the raptors coach would go ahead and let us know who’s starting…to me I think it will be van fleet as they would need Ibaka to come in when Gasol rests but it could either way…honestly all the raptors minus Leonard have played awful in this series

    Siakiam a game-time decision. Gonna be pretty funny if he ends up playing

  • sox9

    Pascal now a GTD upgrade from doubtful

    that happened w/ Embiid remember

  • sox9

    If SIakam is a go, I gotta scratch Powell, Ibaka, Green, FVV off the pool of potential players list

    especially if you are not playing fantasy BB, but actually riding 5 raptors—I would be scared too

    Lol, there prices on dk are just simply to low to me and frees me up to lock 3 studs around em.

  • sox9

    Is Ibaka a sucker play on FD at $5K? It’s not like he is super cheap to begin with, and even if he starts—-if that rotation doesn’t work early TOR could switch to FVV/Powell very quickly.

  • sox9

    Kinda feels like Ibaka is already checked out and he doesn’t know how to play against Embiid (potential early foul trouble) the way Gasol does

  • RiskyBiscuits

    So on FD, I have Kawhi locked in right now at SF. Trying to decide on which cheap guy to pair with him. Anybody feeling any of these guys? JJ Redick is super cheap for what he is capable of, but he also clearly is not a priority offensively this series. Hood is passable, but he is the guy that is gauranteed to put up a dud after two good games. Will Barton is who I might be using, he really stepped up at the end of the last game and was hitting big shots. Any thoughts are appreciated.

  • Ree4erMadness

    Sigh, no more Powell. And I wasn’t playing Ibaka anyway. Look at their depth chart, they literally don’t have anyone to back up Gasol if they were to start Ibaka at the 4. That makes me think most of his minutes would still be at center, where he has sucked in this series. Anybody taking a shot on Lin? The 2 guys who tied for first in the $5 single entry showdown on DK both played Shumpert who didn’t do much but still helped them fit in all the studs.

  • yisman

    FVV and Millsap or Danny Green and Aminu?

  • piffffffffff

    Fd has siakiam starting?

    Any chance the raptors start their small lineup or will they have ibaka and gasol starting together?

  • RiskyBiscuits

    They have done this a bunch of times in the past, it doesn’t mean he is starting. He could be, but I wouldn’t depend on that little green check mark.

  • MRCOOKONUTS

    FD doesnt have inside info. That has to be an error though its leaning towards him playing.

  • yisman

    Siakim is IN

  • sox9

    he’s in
