Speaker 0 00:00:00 Ladies and gentlemen, I give you, you're listening to the Fantasy Warranty FBA podcast with those John PBA and James Grande,
Speaker 1 00:00:11 What's going on, F Nation. John Pemba here with James Grande. Welcome to the Fantasy Line, NBA DFS podcast and live stream recording here for a Wednesday's 13 game main slate. Uh, James 13 games, you know, we hate this, right? I mean, there's so many players to pick from. Uh, we do our best to really like narrow down the games that we're gonna be targeting, um, and cut the player pool down as much as we can and identify the right chalk and, you know, there's gonna be value that opens up. But it seems like the last, like couple 13 game slates, there's been a team that has ruled out like six of their rotational players. Yep. And then we're forced to jam in a bunch of low floor guys. Yep. And one night it worked. The other night we played the Wizards value. You missed. Like it's really, it, it sucks when you're forced to play guys. And I once again, Miami, like half their rosters question up tonight against a Boston team that just beat the Horne to rule out all of their starters by like 45. Like Yep. Yep. Um, you know, so this is, this is gonna feel like another slate where it's like, great, we have to play, you know, like, like all these value guys that aren't, aren't gonna hit, you know, like
Speaker 2 00:01:21 Yep. And there's a couple teams like that, like, uh, Orlando already rolled out Carter Sus, cheki, maybe Baba,
Speaker 1 00:01:29 But they are getting Cole Anthony in Folz back though.
Speaker 2 00:01:32 Yeah. I mean, I just, I am extremely excited for somebody who shouldn't be out of their rotation to be out of their rotations soon. Can't wait for that. Should
Speaker 1 00:01:41 Be town tr probably trade, trade 'em to a contender and let these young guys play.
Speaker 2 00:01:44 You mean Gary Harris? Both, right? Like both probably seemingly gone.
Speaker 1 00:01:48 Yeah. Listen, Harris showed the other night almost 10 x to 3,900 bucks. Get a team that can win.
Speaker 2 00:01:54 Um, yeah, still a good three and D guy. I mean, yeah, you're right. Um, now I guess the one and that, the caveat to that is if you're playing multiple lineups, of course you can like fade and get, you know, spread out your exposures, but usually like in cash games in these situations, like you're playing these guys that like have low floors and whatnot. But yeah, I mean, it's been frustrating. Definitely. We've been stressing it all year. 13 games, 10, 11, 12, 13, whatever it is, have to monitor the news up until lock because things are so crazy when 26 teams are, are going on a slate. So Yep. Make sure we monitor the news, um, all the way up until Ross and beyond it honestly, because I mean, Popovich is on the slate after line lock, so anything's possible after
Speaker 1 00:02:45 Second and Carlisle still exists as
Speaker 2 00:02:47 Well. So, yeah. And Carlisle it, Karl, I think Carlisle in the late window too.
Speaker 1 00:02:52 John. Yeah. Sacramento. I know. Crazy.
Speaker 2 00:02:54 I don't know if you've looked to Vegas, by the way, speaking of her Carlisle, uh, that total in that game.
Speaker 1 00:03:00 2 45 what?
Speaker 2 00:03:01 We got 2 41 close, 2 41, which is the, uh, definitely the highest on the board. I think maybe just the second, um, time all year. We've seen a total over two 40.
Speaker 1 00:03:12 Yep. All right, let's get into it. Here again, we're gonna cut down these player pools for you all. We got 13 games. Uh, this one may be a quicker podcast for 13 games because we're really just gonna try to identify the guys that are, are worthy of building lineups around at each tier. Um, so we're gonna start at the top right. John Moran's at ten nine against Minnesota. Very expensive play for John Moran tier at 10,900 hundred dollars. We say that because in this group, if I'm gonna pick one guy, it's gotta be Halliburton and $9,500, right? Like you can spend up for SGA Booker Moran like, Booker just went for 70. All all, that's fine. Halliburton's giving you 16, two of the last three, he's under $10,000. If we're talking about value, we're talking about price, we're talking about matchup, everything is Halliburton in a revenge game. Going back to Sacramento again, other guys are fine for me it's Halliburton and it's kind of move on down.
Speaker 2 00:04:07 Yep. And I've heard Halliburton talk about, um, his time in Sacramento coming to an edge abruptly and he didn't expect it and he was definitely bitter about it. So I think that there is going to be a little revenge on his mind. I think we could get a ceiling scoring game at Ty's Halliburton here, not just the assist. Uh mm-hmm. <affirmative>, I think, I think 30 is in his bag. I mean, 2 41 total. Can't beat that.
Speaker 1 00:04:30 Nope. Definitely, definitely can't beat that. Uh, under $9,000. Uh, Anthony Simon's last night, obviously again shot the moon, 37, actual 53 fantasy points is giving you 50 now and two of the last three 30 and 37 points actually scored in those games here. Drone the Lakers. You've, you've been on this a little bit, the Lakers defense hasn't been that bad. Um, pat Bev, is he expected to return to, uh, to this game? Yep, he is. Uh, so where are you sitting on Simon's, uh, when it comes to this match here?
Speaker 2 00:05:00 I mean, Simon's is a bucket, right? I mean, he just scores the basketball. He has a high usage rate without Dameon and Willard. Um, so Dennis Schroer being in the lineup only helps Anthony Simons, especially with sugar guarding him. I know Patrick Re's expected back, but I think we all expect sure to get some time on the court as well. So I think Simon's is nothing but a tournament play, um, very hard to trust in cash because he is volatile, but he is gonna take a boatload of shots and as we've seen through the last three, as you mentioned, 30 plus, uh, actual point upside, Lakers currently eighth in defensive writing, they were better earlier in the year. But, uh, eighth in defenses rating. What I do like John though, Laker's number one team in pace once again. So using guys against them are gonna be optimal. Um, just considering the, the pace of spot for Portland. Portland 28th doesn't get much bigger in terms of discrepancy in from Pace, A pace standpoint. So I love Simon's for tournaments. Um, wouldn't use him in cash, but tournaments all award. Yep.
Speaker 1 00:06:04 Uh, next here guys below, I think Fred Elite's too cheap. I understand guys may be coming back for them and that's something to watch, but maybe that keeps Pronto a little bit more competitive in this game. MCC column looks like he's working his way out of, um, out of Covid protocols here. So I'm expecting that he likely, um,
Speaker 2 00:06:19 And Ingram's out and
Speaker 1 00:06:21 Ingram's out and ingram's out. So I think this could be an interesting spot for Van Fleet. I like holiday at $7,300 going up against the Knicks. Now Nick's coming off of a big blowout win last night. Uh, Randall had a monster day. Uh, Bronson only played 18 min in that game though, so, you know, it's not like they got too worn down, but a good spot to attack guards who've done it all season long, uh, with point guards there. Drew Holiday at 73 and then Jamal Murray, we just saw this magic for him. Uh, in 25 minutes he went for 46 fancy points, 45 or more in three of the last four games. Uh, we said it at the beginning of the year, like, play Jamal Murray. Now he is not gonna be this cheap again. He's not gonna be this cheap again. Like he's only gonna go up. So it's whether or not you think Houston can hang in this one or not. Uh, but 7,200 bucks is a, is a really good spot for him as well.
Speaker 2 00:07:06 Yeah, we missed, we as in everyone who wasn't playing Jamar, Jamal Murray missed the window. Right? Missed the window to get him at six K. Um, never come back. So too good too, too. We know. Do we know? Yeah. Michael Porter Jr. Already out. Like I think
Speaker 1 00:07:24 Bones is questionable.
Speaker 2 00:07:25 Yeah. I think that both those guys just being such high usage players just only helps Jamal Murray's case to continue to grow, um, for Denver.
Speaker 1 00:07:35 Yep. I agree with you there. Um, any other guards in this range for you? For me, maybe, uh, Trey Jones is 63.
Speaker 2 00:07:44 I mean, it just all depends on like them staying close. Like they stay close in that game and Trey Jones has, uh, absolute ceiling. Yeah, an absolute ceiling. It's crazy. Um, we haven't really seen that, but like we know he's capable of it. OKC might be without sga, like we don't know his status for today. Um, I, I, Josh Getty would obviously be yeah, a core, a core option if, um, SGA is out because big time, I mean there's, they're already facing the Spurs, Getty's already in play. I think even with SGA and if SGA is out, I mean all the board Josh Getty. So I think that's, you know, probably where I'd go in this tier. Um, obviously I think Jalen Brown still listened questionable, correct? Yeah.
Speaker 1 00:08:26 But I think he'll be good. So, so I think the heat status will depend on the status of Boston.
Speaker 2 00:08:33 If nobody plays Jalen Brown's out again.
Speaker 1 00:08:35 Yeah. If nobody's gonna play for Miami, they're not gonna throw out, you know, those guys there. So that's how I look at it.
Speaker 2 00:08:40 Well, if he's out, I mean, look, nobody plays Marcus Smart. Everyone immediately pivots to Malcolm Brogden and I get it because Brogden, which is fine. <laugh> Yeah, no, it was great. Like, I'm not complaining about playing Malcolm Brogden, but it's the same story every time. But who's better? Malcolm Brogden, Derek White, who's always the forgotten man in this, in this triangle of Guards that they have. Marcus Smart. Yeah, Marcus Smart is the one that's averaging seven and a half assists per game. Marcus Smart just went for 50 <laugh>, like no one's gonna play him. So if there's no Jalen Brown, I, I love, bro, I love White. I think they're both firmly in play and they both have upside and they both have a nice floor. Marcus Smart is gonna be the lesser round of all 'em
Speaker 1 00:09:26 Smart was like 11% the other day.
Speaker 2 00:09:28 <laugh>, nobody played him. He was every winning lineup.
Speaker 1 00:09:31 I, it's because the price, right? Like, because he is the Midtier price. And I was like, I'll just get value. Like, why would I spend six K on Marcus Smart. It's like, cause he, the last two times Jalen Brown was out, he went for 50, he went Detroit and then Charlotte. So, uh, something, something to watch there. Uh, for sure. Uh, are you gonna play any of the Orlando guards?
Speaker 2 00:09:50 Um, no, but I will be playing Reggie Jackson. Okay. Yeah. Reggie Jackson coming off 54 fantasy points.
Speaker 1 00:09:56 Yeah, the back to back just worries me, but it's good
Speaker 2 00:09:58 Price. It it does, and it's a great matchup too, Utah, like they have not been defending whatsoever. Um, so I, they are 23rd in defensive rating. They always have these massive totals and every game they're involved in, uh, 2 25 is on the lower end of the spectrum. But that's because the Clippers are, you know, not the most offensive sound team without Paul George and Ka. But, uh, Reggie Jackson back to back may maybe limited tournaments. Okay. So cheap though, dude. 5,400.
Speaker 1 00:10:27 Yeah. Uh, if we're going some first some value plays, I think Mon Morris is fine at 47. If this brook, they stay close with Brooklyn, uh, he can get you the fantasy points that you're looking for there. Uh, Jalen Noel, we keep talking about it. Carl Towns is gonna miss the next three to four weeks. Uh, they're already without Jordan McLaughlin. They're, uh, who else are they? Prince right? Was out.
Speaker 2 00:10:47 Yep. Torian
Speaker 1 00:10:47 Prince. Is McDaniels still out of the
Speaker 2 00:10:49 Out? Uh, McDaniels is listed as questionable with an illness. Okay. Um,
Speaker 1 00:10:54 Uh, but Noel I think is back into that 25 minute range. We were just hammering him at the beginning of the season. So, uh, we talked about it in chat, you know, they're like, oh, like is he gonna start, you know, the usage rate or the guy's missing aren't that high. Doesn't matter. Jalen Noel's usage rate is like 35%. Yeah. Like, he got, he got on the floor and just hit, hit eight shots and you're like, this is why you play 'em. So. Right. Uh, he still, he's 3,100 and they only bumped him to 39. So, um, on a speak slate like this, Jalen Noel is gonna be another very popular value play.
Speaker 2 00:11:23 Yeah. I think he is. Just looking at the landscape too. I think he's the only value play that we can really comfortably
Speaker 1 00:11:29 Get Dave Vincent all the way down to $3,200. I mean, he, he, you know, hasn't played in a while, but I mean, I don't know if everybody's out and he finds his way in. Um, I'll play, I'll play some Dave Vincent there.
Speaker 2 00:11:38 Agreed.
Speaker 1 00:11:39 Um, he's too good to be that cheap, uh, shooting guard position here. Uh, again, I don't really like any of the top guys. If you wanted to play Garland or Mitchell, like, I'm not gonna sit here and stand in your way. It's just, you know, not a spot that I'm in love with, always at their price points. Agreed. Uh, Bradley Beal at 87, I think is doable against Brooklyn. Uh, he's been really good since he's come back into their line up there. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>, um, you know, the blowout against Minnesota, you only had 33 fantasy points, but sometimes that happens in blowouts. Uh, Anthony Edwards at eight K. What's the usage bump for Edwards with, uh, towns on the floor?
Speaker 2 00:12:10 So with towns off the floor, Edwards is the leading usage getter. Yep. Uh, 32%. He is the leading usage, increased player, 4.9% increase. Um, so everything lines up for Anthony Edwards, 32% usage, 1.26 fantasy points per minute. Um, both team highs. So, uh, love that. Jalen Noel, by the way, 28.8% usage without Carl Anthony Towns 1.05 fancy points minute. So, um, you can get to both those guys, both in great spots.
Speaker 1 00:12:41 Yep. Love it. Uh, a sell at 77, I think you can run that. Obviously the price is getting high on him. Uh, but the O KC matchup just allows, I think for ceiling, uh, potential. Uh, they just won't touch Zach Levine, so we'll just, we'll just keep playing him. That's fine.
Speaker 2 00:12:56 It's, it's 25 5 every slate. Don't touch his price.
Speaker 1 00:13:00 Don't touch his price tag. So we'll just keep playing him. I'll just, I'll just keep playing Zach Levine at $7,300, like totally, totally cool. That's what you're gonna give him to me.
Speaker 2 00:13:07 And we know there's a ceiling too. Like he can go, he can score 35 points in a game and it wouldn't surprise it
Speaker 1 00:13:13 If a couple more threes dropped for him. Like he's just out there just, just knocking him down. So, um, yep. In, uh, buddy HEAL's revenge game as well. It's 62. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>, we like Halliburton. The price is finally getting back down to what you're comfortable playing healed. I know the fancy production hadn't been there, but then he popped off Brooklyn, so we know it's still in there somewhere. Uh, $6,200. Uh,
Speaker 2 00:13:35 Same with, same with Benny Mathen. Yeah.
Speaker 1 00:13:37 Yep. He popped, uh, someone shared, he had, he and LeBron had the same stat line the other day.
Speaker 2 00:13:42 Uh, dude, that, that is gonna, for the next however many years LeBron plays, that's the next best rivalry in the nba. <laugh>, Mathen versus James. Yeah.
Speaker 1 00:13:51 Uh, listen, we, we love the kid. They just like a very, I mean, right. It's like one day he plays 25, next day he plays 32 and you got like Newbar in the lineup or something. Me Smith, right? Like, you're like, what's going on?
Speaker 2 00:14:00 Torments, torments only, but
Speaker 1 00:14:02 Yep. I agree with you. Uh, would run Beasley out there at 55. I mean, he gave you another 26 fantasy points, you know, he's not giving you ceiling, but giving you five x you know,
Speaker 2 00:14:12 You like the minutes without Conley, right? Yeah. Like you're comfortable with the minutes. Like that's just seemingly what he's gonna play with Mike Conley off the floor. So
Speaker 1 00:14:19 Yeah. I didn't touch, I didn't touch on Sexton, but both of him are, are, are good plays. I think Sexton maybe more, um, at 54, but still mm-hmm. <affirmative>
Speaker 2 00:14:27 Agreed
Speaker 1 00:14:28 Play. Uh, you mentioned Norm Powell 20 actual in the fourth quarter yesterday. Yep. Um, only 24 minutes in that game. Is that worrisome for you?
Speaker 2 00:14:36 Um, maybe it was because I mean, he had a bad first half and then just obviously went nuclear in the, in the second half.
Speaker 1 00:14:43 He hasn't really taught that though. 24, 26, 24, the last three games.
Speaker 2 00:14:46 Yeah. Maybe that's just the role they want him to play. Um, and that's where he's been good. Right? I mean, he's been really good in this last stretch. And maybe coincidentally it's been the minutes. So I, I still think he's in play, uh, because they need his scoring. There's no George, I mean, John, they're gonna get John Wall back here. Yeah. That is worth mentioning. I forgot kind of when I was talking about Reggie Jackson, they get,
Speaker 1 00:15:07 Is he officially back or he listen is out?
Speaker 2 00:15:09 No, but the, he hasn't played a back to back, so they ruled him out on, um, Tuesday for, uh, left knee management. Okay. So anytime we've seen the management stuff, it's been just for back to back. So, we'll, we'll see. Maybe he doesn't play. That's a fair point. But, um, I expect John well back. So maybe that's a little down to everyone else. Okay. Cause Wall is a high usage guy. Sure.
Speaker 1 00:15:35 Uh, let's see there. I mean, man, as we mentioned, I guess if Wall is in a route, man, 40 seven's been pretty decent. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>,
Speaker 2 00:15:41 He didn't play at all in the second half by the way. He like, did not play. Like they, they basically just took him off the floor,
Speaker 1 00:15:45 Took him off the floor after having 11, five and three. Great. Yeah. Uh, classic, classic Clippers. Uh, Malik Monk, if you pick the right night, you're, you're, you're in good. You're in good shape. You know, you
Speaker 2 00:15:55 Can go for 40, it's lightning in a bottle.
Speaker 1 00:15:57 You can go for 18, you can go for 40, you pick the day and uh, good luck to you.
Speaker 2 00:16:01 Great spot though. 2 41. If there was ever, if there was ever a spot to like go for 40 again, it's this one.
Speaker 1 00:16:07 I, I would agree with you there. Do you trust Gary Harris with some guys coming back?
Speaker 2 00:16:13 Maybe because some guys come back, but like they're start, I think he can play small forward and stuff, so they might just need him to do that. Considering who's in and who's, I don't know. Franz is there. Yeah. It's tough. It's tournaments only. Not if you're, I don't think if you're playing a single lineup.
Speaker 1 00:16:30 Sure. Uh, grim started again. Even with Redish back 32 fancy points last night, dark throw, you're, you're never gonna get consistency, I don't think outta him, but mm-hmm. Um, you know, a value plate nonetheless. Anybody else for you?
Speaker 2 00:16:43 Not that I see, no.
Speaker 1 00:16:44 Okay. Small forward position at the very top. You got KD at 11 two. Uh, got a vintage Kevin Durant game the other day. 67. Uh, the ceiling does exist in competitive games. Can he do
Speaker 2 00:16:56 Well? Simmons got hurt. Well, Simmons got
Speaker 1 00:16:58 Hurt. Yeah. Ben Simmons got hurt. Ben Simmons is out already for this game too. So Ben Simmons is out. $11,200 for Kevin Durant. We didn't talk about Kyrie. Kyrie is at 85.
Speaker 2 00:17:07 Yeah. Kyrie definitely in tournaments. Durant definitely
Speaker 1 00:17:10 In enjoyments. You know, where are you? Uh, where are you on the top? You mean Tatum's at ten eight now Durant's at 11 two. Some of the higher prices we've seen on these guys this year,
Speaker 2 00:17:20 I mean, Tatum goes for 60 in that game. Maybe 70 that maybe the, he
Speaker 1 00:17:25 Play the fourth sat the entire fourth
Speaker 2 00:17:27 Quarter. Um, and Durant, we've said it kind all year. Like when Bensons has been out, he's been great. Uh, the rebounds have been up and the assists have been up. So yeah, I would, I could get to, I could see myself getting to Duran. I could see myself getting to see him.
Speaker 1 00:17:45 Uh, D Rosen. Bacaro
Speaker 2 00:17:47 D Rosen. Yes. Bon Carro. I think it's a little too pricey for me. Okay. Um, I know he's been great and he was really good last game, but still being really great. Only got him 38 fantasy points at 8,200. Um, like we could just play Anthony Edwards at this position. Yep. Or, or Lori Market.
Speaker 1 00:18:08 Lori Marketing. We listen, we're all doing the last podcast. Chicago Bulls match up. Like you had to get in the,
Speaker 2 00:18:12 Get the Bulls. Dude. People hate the Bulls. They get like Wendell Carter, Larry Marketing, like people just hate the team.
Speaker 1 00:18:19 Yeah. If you just build a super team of anti bulls players, like you're out there. Yeah. Um, yeah. So Marketing Edwards, of course. I agree. I agree with you there. Uh, og any interest here? Scotty Barnes is back, maybe SICU back as
Speaker 2 00:18:31 Well. Sicu played last game. Okay. So he was limited and played 30 and played 30 minutes. Yeah, of
Speaker 1 00:18:36 Course. So like, yeah, we didn't play 40. He was limited.
Speaker 2 00:18:38 Limited.
Speaker 1 00:18:39 He's probably too expensive then for these guys. Right. Um, let's see here.
Speaker 2 00:18:44 Dude. Kel. Dude,
Speaker 1 00:18:47 Dude, I'm so tilted by this game.
Speaker 2 00:18:50 I played it. I played it. So,
Speaker 1 00:18:52 No, so here's what happened was I took the under two and a half threes. They were getting blown out like this entire game they were. And then late in the fourth quarter, the Spur started making a run with Kelvin Johnson. Keller Johnson just came out, they came out of this under three time out. He knocked down back to back three pointers. They hit the over two. And it was the only prop I missed of the, of the pick six was Kel Johnson under two and a half. And he had missed the entire day. He was one for seven under three. Timeout comes out, boom, boom, back to back three pointers. I was so upset. Um, I mean, he is not facing the Lakers, but he is facing the thunder. So, uh, sure. 7,100 if you want. Maybe he starts popping off a bit. Uh, Franz is always a guy. You can, if you want to go there,
Speaker 2 00:19:35 Like that's 30, 30.0 like seemingly a 30 point floor. Yep.
Speaker 1 00:19:39 Yep. I agree with you there. Uh, Bruce Brown's getting a bit too expensive. A guy is possibly returning there. Um, let's see here. What did Grants do? Just 23 fancy points. Not gonna do that. Uh, hunter against Orlando. Maybe not a, not a bad, not a bad price tag for him.
Speaker 2 00:19:55 Um, yeah, 1500 is good. Yeah, he's been right there. Is there, there is a, um, Boggan, Boggan return looming, by the way.
Speaker 1 00:20:02 Yeah. That's a doubtful. But
Speaker 2 00:20:04 We'll see. Looming just saying like it's looming.
Speaker 1 00:20:07 Uh, Trey Murphy, would he start with No, Ingram probably, right?
Speaker 2 00:20:10 Um, yeah, he started last game. Him and him and uh, herb were both super good last game.
Speaker 1 00:20:17 Yeah. Uh, I mean, we love Murphy. So if he's starting again, 5,100,
Speaker 2 00:20:21 Uh, 37 minutes by the way is amazing to see cuz they don't play him that many minutes like ever.
Speaker 1 00:20:27 Yeah. Yep. I, I'm, I'm in, I'm in, uh, winds load. You're running back with him. 4,600 bucks.
Speaker 2 00:20:33 Too many les on your team. That's why you wins low.
Speaker 1 00:20:36 Hey, don't ever do that again.
Speaker 2 00:20:39 Okay, no problem.
Speaker 1 00:20:40 Just kidding. Uh, four trade games and 10 shots. Not bad.
Speaker 2 00:20:43 Yeah, he double double, um, yesterday and he's starting starting in and, and Portland, John, we're, I'm starting to love Portland. You know why? Cause they just play their starters.
Speaker 1 00:20:55 They, they don't have anybody else lard return on Sunday though, so.
Speaker 2 00:20:59 Yep. It's turn on Sunday. So until then, all the starters probably even when Lard comes back, all the start is 35 plus minutes. So Winslow just too cheap. Probably a core play. Honestly,
Speaker 1 00:21:10 If SGA sits out, we didn't obviously talk about Wiggins or Man, but Jalen Williams at 4,200 probably a guy that will gravitate towards.
Speaker 2 00:21:17 Yeah. Um, I think that would be a very popular play because they could just play giddy as their starting point guard. Right. And then you're just,
Speaker 1 00:21:27 At the very least there should be we, well it's the thunder, we never know, but at the very least there should be more minutes for willing to go around.
Speaker 2 00:21:34 I don't know why my brain just processed that. Like, SGA sitting is the worst case scenario he has to play.
Speaker 1 00:21:42 Yeah.
Speaker 2 00:21:42 This is the worst. The thunder having guys out is the worst. Um, but I did just look it up just for us all tilts together. Yeah. Uh, when SGAs been off the floor, Josh Getty is surprising, not surprisingly the leader in usage. 29%. Uh, Lou Dort is second. 26.8%. Yeah. Dude, Lou Dort 6.8% usage bump. Guess who's the leader though? Is
Speaker 1 00:22:07 Poku?
Speaker 2 00:22:08 Nope. Jalen Williams. You were, you started to be correct and then you were wrong. Uh, 7.2%. Damn.
Speaker 1 00:22:14 <laugh>
Speaker 2 00:22:15 Usage bump for Jalen Williams. Yeah, that is Elite.
Speaker 1 00:22:18 He's a bucket dude. He's a straight up
Speaker 2 00:22:19 Bucket. That is E Elite. So
Speaker 1 00:22:22 Do like the Dort though. Uh, 30 fancy bucks the other game too, so.
Speaker 2 00:22:25 Agreed. No, I think, I think, um, if SGA sits, I think, and you know what,
Speaker 1 00:22:30 We had that big sample last year at SGA outta the lineup
Speaker 2 00:22:33 Too. Yeah, we did. Uh, I can look up, I can just look up last two seasons.
Speaker 1 00:22:37 Um, I think Giddy was on. They bet they they shut down Giddy. I think they shut down sga. Um, it might have just been the Lou Dort show truthfully.
Speaker 2 00:22:46 Yeah. Last two seasons. lou.is the leader, the clubhouse leader for usage rate. Yeah. 27.6%. Seven or 5.3% usage bumps. So, um, it's been solid last year. It's solid this year. I agree to 5,400 against the Spurs. That's elite.
Speaker 1 00:23:03 I kind of hope that the SGA sits.
Speaker 2 00:23:05 Oh. Oh, don't say that. Oh, it's gonna be the most painful rotation we've ever seen
Speaker 1 00:23:09 In our lives. I kinda hope he does. Kinda hope he does. Just so we can get these other guys at good prices, cuz you know. Anyways, uh, power forward here, uh, Giannis is 12 four in Madison Square Garden. Uh, you and I like to believe this narrative exists at Star players. Go into the Mecca and just dominate. Uh, he had 66 fantasy points against the Nicks already this season. Uh, that was at home.
Speaker 2 00:23:33 He has a 50, I think he has a 50 point game in Madison Square Garden, like 50 actual in Madison Square,
Speaker 1 00:23:40 Dude. 37, 36 and 38 actual points in three of the last four. Um, just uncharacteristically like not putting together like big games, you know. Yeah. You know, he'll have 11 rebounds. He'll have forces and one steal. Like he's not giving you that 38 12 8 2 and two game where it's like there it is. 70 fantasy points, but Right. Um, I would play, I would play him here. I would, I've been fading. I've been fading Giannis for a lot of this season. Uh, but I'm a sucker for our own manifested narratives and uh, you know, Lucas, Luke has gone it twice in the last three years. Luke
Speaker 2 00:24:19 Has, he sure has. He has.
Speaker 1 00:24:21 So Giannis is due, Giannis is due for, I'm
Speaker 2 00:24:24 Looking, so I'm looking at, uh, I was looking through box scores right here. He has a, he played two games last year at Math Score Garden. Triple doubled both of them. Um, he had, he played the next four times last year. Triple doubled three times against him. Yeah.
Speaker 1 00:24:38 <laugh>. Yeah. That's Randall's just too small. So. Yeah. Uh, anyway, so I, I do like Giannis. We've talked about Duran Tatum already. Uh, LeBron got a little after a big, uh, price bump. He's down a little bit here. Um, I don't know if I'm gonna get there. No. I feel like LeBron is the guy that does really well against Portland in his career for whatever reason. But, um, yeah, those are just again, sort of self-created narratives there. Uh, Kuzma has been balling, you know, it can, I have no problem running out Kuzma, uh, at $8,300. Probably not gonna see a rebound from Randall.
Speaker 2 00:25:12 Gonna skip over as I am. Like hes not even, not like he's not even there
Speaker 1 00:25:17 I should say.
Speaker 2 00:25:18 You're just, you're just skiing over.
Speaker 1 00:25:20 I'm not gonna, I'm not paying it. Not against Toronto. Not gonna do it.
Speaker 2 00:25:25 All right.
Speaker 1 00:25:26 Not doing it.
Speaker 2 00:25:27 Not yet. If McCullum doesn't play, don't, don't play Zion. I'll, I'll gladly do it.
Speaker 1 00:25:32 Uh, what about Bull Bowl? 39 minutes the other day against Brooklyn 41 fantasy
Speaker 2 00:25:36 Points? Uh, p Ben Carro, uh, has recently come out and compared him to Victor wma.
Speaker 1 00:25:41 Yeah, I saw that.
Speaker 2 00:25:41 Dots
Speaker 1 00:25:42 Dos. He dude, he might not be wrong. Did you see, did you see Bo Bowl do the pull up three the other day?
Speaker 2 00:25:47 Yeah, he's, no he's nuts. Um,
Speaker 1 00:25:50 I tune it out yesterday. The Celtics traded him and PJ Dozier for cash to Orlando. Like that was a mistake. You
Speaker 2 00:25:56 Know, imagine's when the Celtics had bowl. Bowl right now. Holy shit.
Speaker 1 00:25:59 Oh my god, that's so yeah. Could you Big seven two guy would even need Rob Bowlings come back.
Speaker 2 00:26:04 Um, yeah, I play bull ball in tortoise.
Speaker 1 00:26:06 Uh, thoughts on Jar Jackson here. No towns go bear. Uh, he got 30 minutes finally against the Nick so that minutes limit seems to be gone. Uh, any interest here in Jarron Jackson Jr.
Speaker 2 00:26:20 Yeah, because he also had 30 minutes. The scoring was great. Three bounces were fine. Where were the blocks? Like this is the guy who's had three or more blocks and you know, was getting chatter last year for Defensive Player of the year because of how good he was on that end. So, um, that will, you know, regress to the, give a little positive regression there. So, um, yeah, I would go to Jeremy Jackson. I would also go to Jeremy Grant. Both, I think both are very viable.
Speaker 1 00:26:44 Play Grant now before, uh, lard comes back. Yep.
Speaker 2 00:26:47 Agreed. The
Speaker 1 00:26:48 Shots go
Speaker 2 00:26:48 Away. $200 cheaper by the way. He's uh, gone for 43 or more fancy poison than three string games.
Speaker 1 00:26:53 Yeah. Back to back 40 Fancy point games for Don Collins. But I'm not gonna, I just can't.
Speaker 2 00:26:58 Dude, you know what's so tilting? We talked about it last.
Speaker 1 00:27:01 I said the exact same thing.
Speaker 2 00:27:02 I'm not doing it. Not doing it. He's so cheap.
Speaker 1 00:27:05 You can't, if you wanna go there, go ahead.
Speaker 2 00:27:07 I won't. I didn't. I would just, we just mentioned that he's just so cheap.
Speaker 1 00:27:11 I know he is too cheap but he has just been so inconsistent. Capellas back like, I don't know, uh, PO at 46. Does he get the run today? 27 minutes?
Speaker 2 00:27:20 You know the meme of um, always Sunny the guy where he is like going like this or he is like he's trying to figure out what the heck's going on. That's us with pco. So I mean maybe you're more likely to play him if SGAs out, but like they also, if SGAs out that does nothing like to correlate with pco, you know, like they still have Robinson, Earl, the Haisley, Ken Williams, Jay, like it's a nightmare.
Speaker 1 00:27:47 Yep. Uh, if Jay McDaniels is out, um, I mean one you could probably play Jay McDaniel's at 46 if you wanted to. Um, Kyle Anderson did play 27 minutes. He be 23 finance points. He's $3,800. If you start, uh, Patrick Williams let us down. I don't know if Phoenix is the spot to go back, uh, to him. Probably not any other power forwards.
Speaker 2 00:28:08 Um, are Spurs guys out still. Cause if they are, I would play um, McDermott for a value I would pun. Yeah. Um, Han's out, he's out for a week. Uh, and Bates the app is questionable if Bates the app sat because, uh, yuck also out. Yeah. I think that I would give um, McDermott a look. Okay. He's been pretty good. Um, I mean 12 and 14 shots, the last two games. 25 and 26 fancy points.
Speaker 1 00:28:34 Yep. Guys, a guy can shoot the basketball that is for sure. So Sure. 3,600. Not bad. Again, good environment for it.
Speaker 2 00:28:40 Bats d up too if he play, if he plays bats. D up. Yep.
Speaker 1 00:28:43 Right. Center position here. Uh, we just saw Yoki in this spot against Houston. Uh, 59 Fantasy points in 27 minutes. Again, the question is just like, you know, does Houston hang? You know, I don't, I don't think they do. Um, but they could
Speaker 2 00:28:59 <laugh> like you also have to factor in like Denver was just insane from the field. Like Murray didn't miss Yoic, didn't miss everyone off the bench. Didn't miss like Devon Reed was not missing. Will they be that efficient again? I don't know, but like, so I feel like you're right.
Speaker 1 00:29:15 You could, you could pay Yoic or Anthony Davis is still being Anthony Davis even with LeBron. Yeah. So at ten seven a d i I think I would run that. Yeah.
Speaker 2 00:29:25 Um, and I mean I don't want to Beat's always a forgotten man, but like nobody else and I get that there's
Speaker 1 00:29:31 No Allen
Speaker 2 00:29:32 Still or Jared. Allen's still out. Yeah. So Mobley defense, Moby's great defensively, but like Beat is a bully dude. He's gonna bully Evan Mobley.
Speaker 1 00:29:42 Yeah, he is a big boy. Uh, yeah. So in Beat's fine. I agree. 80 at ten seven I'm in. He's been great. Bonus revenge game at 92. If you wanted to just game stack there,
Speaker 2 00:29:52 Him and Halliburton just throw him in hell in the revenge lineup. In your revenge narrative lineup.
Speaker 1 00:29:57 Yep. Zinger outta nowhere for 41. Actual against Minnesota, the other 85. Can he do it against Brooklyn? Meet and find out? Yeah.
Speaker 2 00:30:05 Um, I don't know. Maybe. Yeah.
Speaker 1 00:30:07 Seems, seems high. Seems high. Uh, let's see here. Uh, Turners at 76 we like for tournaments. Uh, Eaton keeps playing really well. I don't
Speaker 2 00:30:16 Yeah, he does. 70 for him. Yep. It's expensive, but I can get there.
Speaker 1 00:30:21 Yeah, I don't know about Mobley at 71, but he's very good. Obviously every,
Speaker 2 00:30:25 It's in this tier. I think 6,903 straight, 40 point games, three straight. Would
Speaker 1 00:30:31 You do or you go Gobert without towns?
Speaker 2 00:30:33 That's also fair, but like I don't even know if Gobert is usage just gonna go up at all. Like it's, I don't know the
Speaker 1 00:30:39 Goes up but it feels like they, they may need them on the floor cuz they, they have those rotations where they have towns slide over to the five.
Speaker 2 00:30:44 That's fair. That's fair. Um, yeah, 6,800 is a good price for Gobert.
Speaker 1 00:30:48 So I think I would run that a Capella 64. I don't mind. 3,300. That's a good, that's a good price tag for him there. Uh, clings been really good. 40 on fantasy points again
Speaker 2 00:30:59 And No Simmons. No Simmons. So
Speaker 1 00:31:01 No Ben Simmons. We didn't talk about Roy O'Neill, but again, somebody's playing with no Ben Simmons. Someone gets those myths.
Speaker 2 00:31:06 Joe, Joe Harris probably goes back into the starting lineup. Okay.
Speaker 1 00:31:09 Uh, let's see. Kelly o for tournaments at 57 twice get up there but tournament play. Uh, Mitch, Rob would, you're
Speaker 2 00:31:15 Yeah, all roads lead. All all roads lead to Mitch Rob 45 and then whoever starts
Speaker 1 00:31:21 No, definitely a foul spot game for him. Definitely
Speaker 2 00:31:23 Definitely's foul spot. Um, also whoever starts at center, your boy Zach Collins could start
Speaker 1 00:31:29 Here for since Yeah. 19 minutes though. Super annoying last.
Speaker 2 00:31:32 It's probably gonna be Gorgie Jay and it's probably gonna be the most tilting thing we've ever seen in our lives. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>. Um, but I would still play, even if Zach Collins didn't start, I would still play him because I think there's the 24 minute ceiling here for him. Sure. Um, I also think he got thrown out of that Lakers game if I remember correctly. He did something. Um, so maybe there could have been more time. Yeah. On
Speaker 1 00:31:52 The floor. Ang played seven minutes last game. I don't know what
Speaker 2 00:31:55 That was. No, I think Collin, well Pearl was there. Pearl? Yeah. Cos got, cos got thrown out okay. Of that game. So he um, I thought
Speaker 1 00:32:03 Didn't play in
Speaker 2 00:32:05 That game. Yeah, he played. He did. Yeah, he played but he left with, he left after 10 minutes and Collins played 19, so. Okay.
Speaker 1 00:32:11 Yeah. You know, I like Zach Collins. So works. Uh, alright, build our lineup. Uh, Halliburton point guard.
Speaker 2 00:32:18 Yep.
Speaker 1 00:32:18 Noelle at shooting guard.
Speaker 2 00:32:19 Yep.
Speaker 1 00:32:20 Uh, who else? So who was our other value guy that we had in here? We had two
Speaker 2 00:32:25 Didn't we? Uh, slowmo we have, oh,
Speaker 1 00:32:28 We want Anthony Edwards,
Speaker 2 00:32:29 Right? Oh, J uh, J uh, justice Winslow.
Speaker 1 00:32:31 Oh yeah. Winslow Winslow at 46. Did we want Anthony Edwards?
Speaker 2 00:32:37 Um, we could definitely play Anthony Edwards. It's a good spot.
Speaker 1 00:32:39 It's a good spot. I agree with you. Um,
Speaker 2 00:32:42 You can play Winslow at Power Forward if we need.
Speaker 1 00:32:44 Yeah, let's do a Winslow Power. Edwards Winslow, who's our
Speaker 2 00:32:50 Center. You should go. Um,
Speaker 1 00:32:53 Do you wanna do Zach Collins?
Speaker 2 00:32:55 Yeah, sure.
Speaker 1 00:32:57 Okay. Collins. Uh, that's Don Collins. What is that? Collins, uh, is Zach Collins at 45. We got 6,500 for a guard here. Guard forward in Utility. So we could probably spend up for one more guy.
Speaker 2 00:33:10 Jamal Murray.
Speaker 1 00:33:12 Sure. Murray
Speaker 2 00:33:14 Probably pivot to Giddy if SGAs rolled out there. Yep.
Speaker 1 00:33:16 Um, $6,100 forward or and utility player.
Speaker 2 00:33:24 I mean we could, we could like spend down to like Trey Murphy or something. And Murphy. And then what do we have for utility?
Speaker 1 00:33:32 Uh, we have $7,200 for a utility play. Uh, $7,200 utility is
Speaker 2 00:33:40 Jar
Speaker 1 00:33:41 Jackson. Kel Jar Jackson. Yeah. Let's get the other side of that Minnesota game that works. Or uh, grant or Jackson.
Speaker 2 00:33:49 You pick.
Speaker 1 00:33:50 Mm, Jackson works. I like the game though. All right, so that's our lineup. Halliburton Noel Edwards. Uh, we have Winslow Collins, Murray Murphy and Jackson has our lineup. 13 games book could be out. Uh, James and I will be in Discording on Twitter if you have any questions. And we will catch you guys later.
