NBA Thoughts 1/16/17 (Late)
Happy MLK day to everyone. The late slate features the best games of the day but offers very little value as of now. If we stay without news until lock, we could see a night where Westbrook would be hard to fit in. As of now, the balanced approach seems pretty strong and is my preferred strategy on a slate like tonight. I’ll lay out some of the cheaper options I’m using and who I’d like to pay for. Let’s get to it!
We don’t have minimum salary guys that are in play but we could save salary by using some $4k and $5k guys. Here are the ones that are making my lineups.
|Cody Zeller||Derrick Favors|
|Andre Iguodala||Cody Zeller|
|Derrick Favors||Terrence Jones|
|Jae Crowder||Michael Kidd-Gilchrist|
These players will all see significant minutes and could exceed their salaries. They also allow you to pay up for some of the top guys with higher ceilings.
Guys who make it happen
It’s hard to pay up for Westbrook because of the lack of value but we could still use most of the second-tier. Here are the guys I want in my lineups.
|Draymond Green||Kevin Durant|
|Stephen Curry||Lebron James|
|Kevin Love||Chris Paul|
|Kevin Durant||Stephen Curry|
|Al Horford||Draymond Green|
The slate is packed with studs who don’t reach the $10k price tag. I want to fit as many of these guys as I can with the potential of the late game being a shootout.
Feel free to message me on Twitter (@MLora). I’ll also be in the premium slack chat answering questions leading up to lock. It’s a short slate but a good one. Till next time, party animals!
