“Who wants to win part of $45K for only $2 to play?!”

Yes, it’s Friday which means it’s DratKings night!  And I’m hopping in one of my low-risk, high-reward contests where I can win it big if I smoke da rest like a cig.  OK, I’m done with this bit, it’s just terrible isn’t it?!  I’ll be hopping in the NBA $45K LAYUP, with the $2 buy-in good enough to win me $5,000 if I can top the field.  Of course, all you have to do is finish in the top 20% to money, something Slim and I both did last week to double and triple up.  Slim did better!  Flaunting his $6 around like a Little Rascal.  Why daily fantasy is fun with your friends – instant gratification.  So hop in the contest tonight, follow our entries (“jbrazzball” & “SlimRazzball”), and let’s get Razzball Nation winnin’ some paper!  Here’s a look at five of my DK picks for tonight:

PG – Kyle Lowry – $9,800 – Like Kim Kardashian’s rack, I’m going heavy up top!  PG have been tearing apart the Pacers, and Lowry has been tearing apart, well, everyone while DeMar DeRozan has been out.  From 11/30-12/3 he had 3-straight 50+ DK point games and off 46.5 on Wednesday,

SG – Dion Waiters – $3,700 – While I’m not a big Waiters fan in season-long 9-cat fantasy, he’s a very cheap option tonight after putting up 14/1/4 last night and 23.25 then 39.75 DK points the previous two games.  LeBron James sat last night, but even if he plays, there’s a chance he could be limited and give Waiters another big chunk of shots off the bench.  If King James is listed as probable with no limitations, Sergey Karasev is a nice backup $3,000 option if he makes another start – could hit some treys with some high-floor, low-ceiling DK scoring.

SF – Jeff Adrien – $3,000 – Look at me saving so much money!  I feel like the frugal froggy – you may or may not go on a wild acid trip if you lick me.  Off the big breakout 27.75 points on Wednesday, there’s no reason Flip would give us The Bird and not play him.  It was in a shocking Timberwolves win, and he brought more energy than a right hook to Dolph Lundgren.  When I set my DK line-up, I chant “I fight to win!  For me!  For me!

PF – Anthony Davis – $11,200 – When you find the deals, you can click your heels!  …and make the best player appear..?  Nahhh, wipe that from your memory… Ummm, with all that money I’ve saved now, I can get the Brow!  Slight improvement.  Obviously the best player in the DK land, I’m not burying my head in the sand!  This is why my career as a rapper ended abruptly…

C – Mason Plumlee – $4,900 – Even though his last game was pretty brutal in a 9-cat sense (8/8/2/0/3 with 3 TO on 3-11 FG and 2-5 FT), DK doesn’t score %s and TO are only -0.5.  And in real life he fouled out in 28 minutes, but hey, things can only go up in a dream matchup against the Sixers.  Dubdubs add 1.5 Pts, a benchmark Prof. Plum should hit, with some nice upside given the little depth the Nets have up front – even if this is a blowout, which is doubtful.

 

Use these ideas to help guide your own NBA $45K LAYUP lineup, and bring in that big dough!  Good luck tonight!

    I think my REL team is blowing their matchup right before my eyes. FG% is a category I need to win, and was leading comfortably in all week. This is my teams shooting so far tonight.

    1/6 – 1/5 – 1/2 – 1/4 – 1/5 – 2/5 – 0/7 – 2/10 – 4/11

    Yet they’re 19/22 from the line, including 5/6 from Tony Wroten?!?

    Sup JB… My lineup for h2h 9 cat.. Sorry I just wanted to show you again cause I just lost Favors last night and I don’t know how long yet but I can’t afford a guy out at all right now. I’m in last place with 19 win points and the playoff spot has only 26 but it’s like every week I barely get 1 point closer if I even win. last week was the first week I won with everybody back but everyone else isn’t losing big and down one guy i’ll never catch up. I’m losing this week so what im trying to say, should I sell Favors for a sell low?? I’ll even take Gobert right now for him cause someone picked him up. There’s 12 weeks left and I gotta win at least 6-3 almost the whole way out basically. Do you feel me on this? What would you do cause I’m not gonna get anyone good for him unless I bundle and even then I’ll take a loss. Thanks buddy!!

      @Frank White: Nah def don’t sell too low, but I’m fine moving him. Ankle injuries can be rough for bigs, but I wouldn;’t give him away. Def could use another big I might offer him up to the teams at the top of the standings who can afford to stash more

    Hi again! Im a bit disturbed with Mr. Payton, I think I gave him enough opportunities. If tonight he doesnt give smtg I might show him the door. Its a 16 team league, I might go and grab (again) KOQ. I dont have any special need atm other waivers are: Pekovic, Matt Barnes, Ilyasova,MKG, Shumpert, CJ Watson, JJ, Norris Cole, Morrow, LaVine, Brooks…

    I have been hesitating with this guy all these weeks and actually I am not so dependent on anything he offers, maybe on his steals a bit…

    Thanks a lot!

      @Lawson: Ummm, well yeah Elfrid’s % for the low return is a concern for sure. LaVine is interesting short term, but TO are awful. I’d prob LaVine, with Vuc coming back it’s taking KOQ’s value.

    someone in my 14 team h2h 9cat league dropped Elfrid Payton. my assist category is one of my weakest; is there a chance for a second half resurgence?

      @KD Owner: Ehhhh I think it would take an injury to do much more. I think Oladipo gets better and better and keeps more rock in his hands when Elfrid is sharing the court.

    Hey JB,

    Tried trading Giannis and Gortat for Davis? In my 20-team-league.

    Do I have the ups if I have Davis for my two players?

    Thanks!

      @Kris: Anthony Davis? For Antetokounmpo and Gortat¿¿¿

      @SheriffMcRawDawg: Def taking Norris Cole. I think I’d have to take PLumlee too, wow looking at Hawes he’s faded back into nothingness again. He’s a good player too, surprised he’s not getting more run. Doing both, any time man!
