One of the biggest questions that some of you may have is hitting the lock button on Brow. As you can see in my preferred plays at the position, he’s no where to be found. Fading Brow is not for the faint of heart. Sure he had a terrible performance last game against OKC but he still played 38 minutes and his usage rate in that game was 30%. He also shot the ball 20 times including 7 free throws. The one reason for me is the health issue. He is still not 100% and you can see that watching him play. I think there’s better value out there like LMA and Towns that if he does go off, I cam overcome the AD lineups. Ownership is going to be high tonight so if you’re with me, say a little prayer before you submit.

Another situation I feel like we can take advantage of is the T-wolves situation. You unexpected rest. You have D rose dropping 50 then hurting his ankle. Late scratches, fatigues, soreness, Jimmy Butler calling players p*ssies. It’s a complete shit show.  According to Justin Russo @flybyknite on Twitter, host of the Seattle Down Podcast, “In the 71 minutes that Butler, Towns, and Wiggins have shared the court, MIN is -14.9 in NetRtg. In the 60 minutes Butler has played without those two, it’s +1.7. In the 77 those two have played together without Butler, it’s +11.8. This is, yeah.”

So why am I suggesting playing Rose and Towns together ? Towns has hit the 20 point mark in the last 4/5 games and also has a double double in 4/5. Rose is only $5600 tonight.  While his price has gone up, he has a usage rate of 25.8 % and playing over 30 min a game. People unfortunately are still thinking of Towns as the same Towns that started the season. I say fire them both up.  They have an incredible matchup against Lakers team who hasn’t figured out how to play together.  Ignoring the recency bias will be hard here, but these are spots we can take advantage of.
