    I’m really hating this slate! I’m at the point of trying to really squeeze as many studs as I can. That being said, Is Portis stealing from Taj… if one were to consider Portis a play, would they then have to pair him with someone other than Taj?

    I really like Tony Parker at 5100, been on a nice run lately. First half a b2b i could see pop extending parker and duncan for the xmas day game and resting them tomorrow night.

    Lakers are actually above average against shooting guards

    I’ve checked 4 different DvP charts and your statement couldn’t be more wrong

    danny green. should get 20 minutes and a good shot at hitting value

    Danny Green shot 80% from the field and grabbed 7 rebs last game for him to hit value. You’re just burning money by playing him IMO. Having said that, he might drop a burger tomorrow the way NBA DFS works.

    Is anyone giving Duncan and or Manu looks on DK?
    I find myself hovering over those two a lot… It’s a tough play but IF they can get their PT (game stays close) they could both hit on a slate with limited value.. Thoughts?

    I’m playing two GPP lineups, one with Duncan. I looked up some of the Rockets/Spurs box scores from 2014-15 and Duncan held his own against Dwight. I can see him being overlooked by those who are paying up for Whiteside/DeAndre or punting with Bogut/Adams. Duncan is also cheap enough if you want to play him at the Utility.

    I’m completely off Manu. I’d rather pay down for Shumpert or find the extra $2K-$3K and get a guy like Wade or Kobe who might go off on Christmas Day. But if you’re thinking of cash games then Manu has a decent floor.

    Any advice on a good forward for 4300 on DK?

    None there
    Could take a chance on Portis
    Or free up a 100 to get Gibaon

    My guess is he’s confusing LA with Philly, who have been inexplicably good against SG relative to their team defense so far this season.

    Gotta say im pretty disappointed with incentives and RG in general for this slate. Most of the content is not out yet, lineup builder not active. I would have thought everything would be out early for the holiday.

    $5200 for a Guard on DK. Can’t decide between Parker, Reddick, and Dellavedova. Any input?

    Does anybody know when the NBA players usually show up in the line-up builder? I don’t play much NBA, so wanted to try messing around with that.

    I hope he does. Frees up ariza. w/ pop i doubt we’ll know anytime soon.

    Ummm…are you suggesting that Pop is the only coach who doesn’t publicly mention what his intended strategy before a game?

    I know because of this I cancelled my entries, nothing like picking 9 guys at total random, without proper tools to research the slate. Plus this slate is uglier than sin.

    I’ve checked 4 different DvP charts and your statement couldn’t be more wrong

    Here’s the thing: There are only four games where a shooting guard has put up 40+fps (DK) against the Lakers. Will Barton (40.50), James Harden (twice, 45.0 and 44.75) and Kevin Martin (47.25). And, that’s not because of a lack of minutes. Harden played 36.1 and 31.7 against the Lakers. Barton needed 38.3 minutes. Scorers such as C.J. McCollum, Bradley Beal, DeMar DeRozan and Andrew Wiggins all played more than 30 minutes against the Lakers and failed to reach 40fps.

    DvP can be misleading. For instance, Khris Middleton and O.J. Mayo combined for 45 FPS against the Lakers (DK has Middleton as an SG), Monta Ellis and Rodney Stuckey combined for 50 and Gary Harris and Will Barton combined for 42.75 on a night that Barton only got 20.50. Reddick needs only 29.4 fps against the Lakers to reach 6x value and that’s definitely within reach, but I wouldn’t be looking for a game from Reddick that is above average because he is playing the Lakers. Just my two cents.

    Will Leonard be guarding Harden? im looking for that Ariza pick

    OK,Draft Kings I live in Tennessee you know that ,Please stop checking my location every 10 minutes ,Or at least wait till I submit my lineups not 6 players into it !

  • intimadator2007

    Anyone think Chris Paul can put up 50 fpts before he gets yanked, Such a solid price on DK AT 8600 .

  • JinSoo

    Who’s going to put up bigger numbers tonight, Kobe Bryant or Dwyane Wade?

    thoughts on iggy? should get a lot of burn guarding lebron and doesn’t need a ton of shots to hit value….

    what centers outside of the top 2 (whiteside/jordan) are playable?

    blake or draymond? is draymond matchup proof at this point….

    Kanter/Adams

    Tyreke evans is a trap. I’m confident in this with dragic playing. He’s had those 2 huge games vs shitty defenses. he’s clearly struggled to good defenses and will do the same. Ish being gone won’t affect anything. if anything potential cole punt w/ the story line of him returning to miami.

    Is that just inner homer talking?
