First thing I want to talk about is site player pricing. I get aggravated when sites tighten player salaries and then they loosen them up. Just pick one way or the other. I think being consistent is important and that goes for all the sports that the site offers. If a site wants to be the next Draft Street and have sharp player salaries, that’s fine. For example, if the guy doing or looking over the player salaries might be a basketball guy and the salaries are sharper for basketball than other sports. That’s not the way it should be. Sites that have consistent player salaries will only help grow the DFS industry moving forward.
We have a 7 game slate on tap for Saturday night. Couple things I want to bring to your attention. Atlanta plays Philly after a tough game against Cleveland on Friday night. Wouldn’t surprise me to see Mike Budenholzer sit some players. The Heat have some major injury issues. Be sure to check if Dragic, Chalmers, Deng and Wade are playing. If any of them sit it could really open up some value.
Disclaimer: James Harden, Anthony Davis, LeBron James, and Demarcus Cousins should always be considered. Please, blog, may I have some more?
Oh man, Russell Westbrook has turned into Oscar Robertson meets Michael Jordan! It’s like the first time you heard your favorite off-the-radar album, you’re like, “it sounds like Godspeed You! Black Emperor meets Between the Buried and Me on acid!” And right at the end of yet another tripdub with monster scoring Friday night (40/13/11), Andre Roberson pulled a Van Damme from Kickboxer and kneed the shizz outta RW’s face. Friggin’ Roberson and his fat knees! After the game, the fashion photographers were like, “Russell, show me your good side, no no the other way, give me Le Tigre! Ferrari! MAGNUM!”
Luckily facial reconstruction for face dents doesn’t include a long healing period; maybe they just went in under the skin and used a Pops A Dent! It’s been reported he could’ve even come back yesterday if it were the playoffs. I’d guess he’ll miss another game or two, but looks like we dodged a bullet. More like, Westbrook’s cheek caught the bullet, just it bounced off his Adamantium! Here’s what else went down over the weekend in fantasy basketball action: Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well, one outta three of the letters in MCW is in efficient… That makes sense seeing as he usually shoots 33%!
In his debut for the Bucks, Michael Carter-Williams looked solid against his former Sixers for 7/0/8/2/0 in only 17 and a half minutes. All with only one TO! Shot 3-5 from the field, did split his two FT, but a mad efficient game in his new colors. Off the toe sprain, I’m not surprised his minutes were kept in check as the Bucks unsurprisingly took it to the Sixers. Full tank! Yesterday on the Podcast, Slim said even a great game wouldn’t have him change his MCW valuation too much, and he’s the logical one. But I’m antsy and loved what I saw! I don’t think he’s suddenly the top-50 guy I thought he’d be, but I think he’ll keep the %s in check with that decent MIL supporting cast, and he won’t make you want to kill yourself. And if that isn’t a ringing endorsement, I don’t know what is…. Here’s what else went down last night in fantasy basketball: Please, blog, may I have some more?
