Took him with one of my last picks in the draft, has monster potential in blocks, steals, rebounds. If he gets more minutes, watch out.

You can say the exact same thing about Ekpe Udoh, John Henson (their #1 draft pick), Luc Mbah a Moute, Sam Dalembert. The Bucks are in love with defense only, shot blocking PF/C's and there's not enough minutes to go around.

Looks like he's taking all the minutes away from Dalembert.

I drafted Dalembert for Blocks and Rebounds...but witih only 25 minutes total in the first 2 games, I might be dropping him for Sanders if this continues.

12 Team Yahoo, Auction Draft, 0.5 PPR:  2-1

Changed strategy up this year, spent big $$ on WR, then felt very fortunate to still land Miller and Gore:

 

QB:  Philip Rivers

WR: Julio Jones

WR: Odell Beckham Jr.

RB:  Lamar Miller

RB:  Frank Gore

TE:  Charles Clay

W/R/T: Kendall Wright

K:   Justin Tucker

DEF: Green Bay/Houston

 

BN: Delanie Walker, Leonard Hankerson, Christine Michael, Andre Williams, Antonio Andrews

If he can get 25-30 minutes a game, I can see around 12-8 with 1stl-2blk with over 50% FG. He doesn't shoot free throws THAT well, but he barely goes to the line and I'm willing to stomach it for the rest of his #'s.

Can he learn to stay out of foul trouble?

I picked him up because i thought there could be a chance he will become a starter.

Theres still a possibility. If he stays out of foul troubles and goes back to his double doubles per game. He could take it.

Love his upside. A double double with 2 blocks. A great player to have waiting on your bench. My season would be that much better if he became a starter or got starter mins at least.

He's hype. Stats seem great, but he's a terrible basketball player. He's hustles, but gets into a foul trouble too much. I don't see how you can say there's upside for him when he's already averaging 5 PF's in 25 mpg which is proportional to what he has always averaged.

I think his rebounds will drop and his minutes will also, eventually, drop. I watched his games and I wonder why he's out there sometimes. He goes for the dumbest fouls ever. He literally tries to block every shot out there even if it's a very deep 3.

Again, he does not have "monster potential" in steal and rebounds. I like his blocks.

Sanders gets the most minutes out of any of the front court MIL players and it hasn't been inconsistent. As long as this guy stays out of foul trouble, he should get his minutes and #'s.

I'm surprised that Skiles is completely sitting Drew Gooden even though he is healthy. I thought Skiles liked Gooden. Sanders is a decent bench for big men stats, but his upside is not that great considering his inconsistent performances and the MIL frontcourt mess. I imagine that he will be in and out of rosters all season.

Not today. Why don't you watch him play? Maybe you'll have a change of thought. I prefer Dalembert over Sanders.

Ilyasova has been decent tonight so his minutes are down. He will probably only get enough run in blow outs, games when Ilyasova sucks, or games when Dalembert gets in foul trouble. His lane to consistency is blocked in almost every path. He will be a headache to own. Bench player + being on Skiles team = pour me another shot please.

I do watch him play. Check who's playing in the 4th in a close game despite Dalembert having a good game.

Haha, why don't YOU watch? Sanders played all the crunch time minutes (actually the entire 4th quarter) and played slightly longer than Dalembert.

He still only ends with 20 minutes, assuming no OT. He won't have much value in leagues 12 and under with that sort of run. He needs 26+ minutes to be worth rostering in 12 team leagues.

He would get 26+ if he could only stay out of foul trouble. Skiles is wanting to play him. Had 5 fouls tonight.

Well looking at his fouls in every game (5+) it would appear that is a trend that may never end lol. He is like a Danny Fortson type guy who comes off the bench and bruises people around.

Foul trouble continues to limit Larry Sanders, as he finished Saturday's game with five personal fouls in 21 minutes.

Sanders once again salvaged some value, chipping in four points, six rebounds and three blocks, but he'll need to play smarter to take the next step. Amazingly, he's averaging 5.0 fouls in 25 minutes per game this season.


IF he stays out of foul trouble. he should produce.


Hoping for the better going forward.
