    I don’t mean contrarian, like 5%. It’s a showdown, even Solomon hill is gonna be 30%. I mean out of the 4 guys who will likely put up 40+ DK point performances, he’ll be the lowest owned.

    Out of Holiday, Trae, and Giannis, I’m predicting Middleton will be the lowest owned.

    For showdown I’m not gonna speculate. I’m referrin’ to the 2 day, 2 game slates that are available on DK but primarily FD is my focus. Showdown(SD) is not really my forte. I’ve done a few and cashed, but it’s not really my game of choice.

    What teams might do differently, is always worth discussion. Sometimes though its simple as, who did well last game, and why, and why did people who did poorly last game, do poorly from a fantasy perspective.

    Well, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist or super in depth analysis to see Middleton shot 6-23 and 0-9 from 3. Frankly, Middleton hasn’t shot well for a while, but he’s certainly shot better. If you think he’s going to shoot less tonight, whatever, but he likely won’t.

    Why did Jrue have such a great game? More rocket science analysis shows he shot 14-25, including 5-12 from 3. Guess what? Overall he’s also shot terribly this postseason.

    Collins went off because he dominated the boards and had 9 second chance points. Atlanta and Milwaukee were 2 of the best rebounding teams in the league, and there’s really no reason why the Bucks should have gotten beaten that badly on the boards, and yes I consider a 6 board different a lot, when you’re the home team and you’re supposed to be the 3rd best rebounding team in the league.

    The biggest discrepancy in rebounds was in the 4th quarter, when Capela almost matched the Bucks in total rebounds, which was also when Lopez wasn’t on the floor. In fairness, Lopez was -14 for the game, but I also wonder if they’re better off with Portis out there then Tucker. Portis had 8 rebounds in 14:42, while Lopez had 2 in 20:15, while Tucker had 7 in 34:55. I still don’t fully understand what Tucker is bringing to the table here. He played that whole 4 quarter, compiling 1 rebound. That’s it across all stats. While Capela had 6 points and 8 boards, Collins had 7 points and 2 boards, in 5 minutes, even Solomon Hills provided more stastically. What is he shutting down?

    If the Bucks shoot like they should, and take care of the glass better ,they should win, no matter what Trae does. Middleton can not shoot that poorly though.

    I think Bud’s thought process is that Tucker brings an “edge” to the team. That said, I think bud’s thought process is garbage.

    Every hawks game feels like that but it never happens

    He won’t be low-owned I can guarantee that, so he won’t be the contrarian play. It might pan out that he was the obvious play, but its hard to see him hittin’ over 43.5(5x) or even gettin’ to 43.5. Coach Bud always wants to get him goin’ so he’ll have plenty of opportunity because he’s his guy and dependin’ on how he plays, (more accurately, how he shoots), is the measurin’ stick for if the team takes this series. He has mostly underwhelmed though.

    You think middleton’s game 2 is going to decide the series? The bucks should have won game 1 easily even with Middleton shitting the bed lol

  • monarch

    I agree…the Hawks are difficult to blow out. They have a lot of answers on that roster to turn to.

  • Rickytango13

    Portis and hill open up some interesting things. I think tonight is the night to take a couple shots at reddish. Giannis 70 🍔

  • monarch

    I am eyeing Reddish but I would like his price to be lower because I don’t see him getting above twelve minutes.

  • billythekidcowboysheat

    Bucks same starting lineup.

    I guess bud needs his ass kicked again all game by pnr😁

    Give me capela/collins all night

  • monarch

    Going way over the field on Capela/Middleton and Giannis. I think I would rather have Okongwu over Solomon Hill in GPPS. Also taking a flyer on the (239) play of the night Justin Jackson.

  • BiGtIGeRs

    Dr Giannis will be what is ordered up

    2 awful no calls that were hawks ball already. Just because they don’t want to look at the monitors?

    He’s played like 9 minutes already and he’s most effective when he is fresh and energized 🤷🏻‍♂️ His game is like 80% effort
