    It’s our daily DFS live thread, hosted by up to 5 DFS experts!

    These threads will provide daily news/updates and act as a sounding board for new players and experts alike. This will also be a spot where we can link to interesting shows (like the one Coach, Mike and Andrew H. are putting out every day) or other info we feel is worth highlighting.

    Myles and Andy G, two DFS experts that are going to be moderators for this thread (and the rest of the HB forums). They will also be making fill in appearances on the DFS Today podcast this 2019-2020 season.

    Here’s today’s podcast: Did the trade create a value pocket?

    Late updates:

    POR – Damian Lillard listed as Questionable now
    • major upgrade for CJ McCollum if Lillard were to miss the game
    • Anfernee Simons would become an elite value option across the industry if Lillard is out
    • this game is the last game of the slate so we may don’t know what will happen.

    OKC Nerlens Noel will play
    he should play plenty of minutes with Adams out

    Here are my Showdown/Captain notes for the later night.

    MIAMI @ OKLAHOMA CITY
    Captain: C. Paul
    UTLs: SGA, Gallanari, Jimmy B, Bam, Gallanari, Leonard, Dragic or Nunn, which is looking more like Nunn will start along with Noel starting for S. Adams.

    GPP Pivots: Shroder, James Johnson, Derrick Jones, Mike Muscala, D. Robinson

    PORTLAND @ DALLAS
    Captain: Luka or Lillard/McCollum if Healthy
    We are waiting for the status of Dame Lillard tonight as he has an upper respiratory illness. Does not look good.

    UTLs: , Hardaway, Lillard, McCollum, Whiteside, Anthony, Powell, McCollum, Simons.

    GPP Pivots: Jalen Brunson for only 1K!, Gary Trent, Anthony Tolliver, M. Hezonja for 1K, and Marjanovich at Center.
