    Fanduel has pricing that actually makes sense! This should makes things way more fun.

    A real slate tonight where tough decisions are going to have to be made. The biggest question….will Westbrook see some real minutes?

    Yeah, no kidding. Last night was brutal.

    Lots of juicy games tonight….So many questions.

    ABC might play.

    Wonder if Wall will get any Mins.

    Will Lebron play.

    Does Westbrook’s usage take a big hit.

    Drummond has pink eye.

    Can Tatum repeat his performance.

    Is Ben S. Chalk

    Does Cousins still want to punch Adams.

    I actually cashed all entries last night thanks to Lowry/Lillard pairing. This preseason has been very different than last year where cashing was rostering all scrubs. The key for me has been to go studs and scrubs with the scrubs focused on either top 10 picks or later picks getting minutes/second year players.

    Another round of Ish Smith is cool right? He seems safe to play.

  • tmarohl

    Kidd was quoted yesterday as saying that he want’s to ramp up the starters minutes in these last two pre-season games, along with getting a look at some of the other guys before cuts are made this weekend. That probably means that ABC, Middleton, Brogdon get 20-24 minutes, and the bench getting the rest.

    If he is going with the same plan of giving 10-12 players significant minutes then yea. I am wondering if Cousins and Davis are going to see the 30+ they saw in the first game.

    Also have a feeling that Westbrook is going to get decent minutes. First chance to play and he needs to shake the rust off before regular season. Hell even with 20 minutes he would dominate the stat sheet. I may gamble

    It really has been different than last year. Last year was the first year I played preseason and it was way different than this year. I think part of the reason it’s different this year is b/c they are playing fewer games.

    What does everyone think about Washington? I’m looking at Beal and Otto tonight

    No Marcus Morris tonight: https://twitter.com/ASherrodblakely/status/916334905235210240

    Pelicans starters may still see good minutes as they will rest vs Griz “Don’t expect to see a ton of Anthony Davis (33 minutes vs. Bulls), DeMarcus Cousins (33), Rajon Rondo (31) or Jrue Holiday (30) during the Oct. 13 preseason finale at Memphis, so this weekend’s road trip at OKC and Chicago serve as the quartet’s final tune-ups prior to the Oct. 18 regular season opener against the Grizzlies” http://www.nba.com/pelicans/news/behind-numbers-presented-hub-international-pelicans-thunder-10/6/17#tw

    Drummond and Jackson out for Det, Leuer starting. https://twitter.com/i/web/status/916327729087352837

    No Lebron tonight. http://www.nba.com/article/2017/10/06/lebron-james-ankle-wont-play-against-indiana-pacers?cid=nbatvsocial_tw_sf119679792&sf119679792=1#/

    No vets for the Kings tonight: https://www.sactownroyalty.com/2017/10/6/16434722/kings-vs-spurs-preview-deaaron-fox-skal-labissiere

  • cheezpizza

    Just start 8 players who arent playing tonight. Should be good for 250+.

    So far I’m leaning Ish, Pels bigs stack, and maybe some SAC rookies.

  • jessedio

    Kidd said they will start ABC and prob keep his mins under 20. Who tf knows with that guy. 🤦‍♂️

    Still waiting on wizards and okc for wall and my boy westbrook

  • moped_jones

    Anyone think George gets a decent run tonight? Probably needs time to get chemistry with Russ and Melo, right?

  • KindGuy

    8 game slate. Love it. Although, I wish the main GPP on DK was a $4 20 max instead of a $5 150 max. The 20 max was filling without any problems but they decided to move to a 150 max on Wednesday.

    Who exactly are the kings vets? Do we have an exact head count?

    I’m guessing Z-Bo and Carter are for sure out. Hill and Temple also seem like possible sit candidates.

    That should make Buddy, Skal and maybe Fox good plays.

  • jessedio

    I’m not sure if the SAC news is a trap or not..lol I just looked and the Vets only played 9 mins each last game so their mins didn’t really take anything away from anyone.

    Think about what you’re saying, 9 minutes using a full 24 sec shot clock is 22.5 possessions…

    Those guys playing 9 mins didn’t take anything away from those other guys. People rest even if they aren’t on min restriction. They don’t play the entire half.

    I only like 2 players from that team. Skal and Fox

    Skal played 33 mins. Shot 70% from the field. His DFS stat line or mins won’t get much better than that. Everything has to go perfect for him to repeat that performance.

    Fox only played 16 mins which is weird to me. I like him as a player so I’ll have a few shares.

    Depending on the build on Dk maybe I’ll take a flyer on Hield if I need to save on a spot.
