  1. John Collins 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    From my experience in auction, $20 is too much for a player in his range. I wouldn't spend $15 but it's not horrible. I would be looking to get him for $10 or under.
  2. John Collins 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    This ATL team is pretty horrendous. Collins should get all the minutes that he can handle and, with Trae, Bazemore and Taurean chucking up shots without abandon, should have lots of opportunities for offensive REB. Unless his ADP gets too out of control come draft time, Collins has a good chance to outperform this season.
  3. Brandon Knight 2018-19 Outlook

    Tough to trust that he will stay healthy but for sure on the sleeper radar as the projected starting PG on the Suns. He's still only 26 years old and was a top 40 per game 8 cat fantasy player during both the 14-15 & 15-16 seasons. It's not like he can't play or be fantasy relevant.
  4. Kawhi Leonard 2018-19 Season Thread

    Want to get the discussion on this thread turned towards Kawhi's fantasy value for the 2018-19 season. I am assuming that he's fully healthy and ready to go in TOR. Definite top 8 pick IMO. We could easily see him add 2 MPG, which would obviously boost his counting stats. Only guys that I would take in front of him at this point are AD, Harden, Giannis, KAT, Jokic, Durant & Curry (and I may bump Kawhi over KD & Steph if everything is looking good the rest of the offseason and during TC, preseason).
  5. Jonas Valanciunas 2018-19 Season Outlook

    Agreed, if he starts seeing 30 MPG (definitely a possibility) then top 40 fantasy #'s should be expected.
  6. Was actually going to start a thread on this guy before the big TOR/SAS trade went down and am now compelled to do so. Now has 2 big factors working in his favor for fantasy: 1 - HC Casey is gone and replaced by assistant Nick Nurse, who has spent a lot of time working with Jonas and is reportedly a big supporter. Casey never really committed to Jonas and constantly jerked around his minutes, especially in the 4th Q. 2 - His biggest competition for C minutes is now gone with Poeltl traded to SAS. TOR will likely sign another back-up C (Alex Len??) but it's doubtful that they will have as big an impact as Poeltl. Still only 26, liking Jonas to have a career year this season.
  7. Kawhi Leonard 2018-19 Season Thread

    It will be interesting to see if we ever get a reliable indication on what the Lakers were offering. The Spurs obviously chose the stay relevant now path with getting an in-his-prime All-Star in DeRozan. I wonder if the Lakers ever seriously offered a package with 3 of the following - Ball, Hart, Ingram, Kuzma.
  8. I definitely have my eyes on him in redraft for this year due to his potential in BLK. Longer-term, I think he's a future fantasy stud that's going to average 5+ combined 3PM/BLK/STL per game.
  9. Jamal Murray 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Great point, unless this is just another season lost to injury for IT2 (or he's just washed at this point), he is likely is going to negatively impact the PT of other DEN Guards. DEN can obviously play a small ball 3 G lineup consisting of 3 of the following (Murray, GHarris, Barton, IT2) but everyone's minutes are likely going to get pinched here by the IT2 signing.
  10. Jamal Murray 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    This is the Jamal Murray thread and I don't like to get off topic but what you're stating is totally false. From 2/27/18 - 4/11/18 (when Millsap returned to the DEN line-up after his lengthy injury absence), Nokic was the #3 per game 9 cat player and #2 per game 8 cat player per that stretch per BBM. So, I guess the only way Millsap hurt Nokic is if your expectations were that Nokic would be the #1 ranked fantasy player....
  11. Jamal Murray 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Not that this craters his value but man, the IT2 signing certainly lowers Murray's ceiling for 18-19. Unless his ADP drops accordingly, I will definitely be passing on Murray for this season.
  12. Jamal Murray 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    An ascending young player for sure and he played much better during the 2nd half of last season. Biggest concern is that he has to compete for touches with a pretty loaded Nuggets team (Jokic, Millsap, GHarris, Barton). Still, he made a really nice leap from year 1 to 2 and won't be 22 until February. He could be one of those lower AST PG that makes up for the lack of AST by posting great %'s & 3PM and good REB from the PG position.
  13. Brook Lopez 2018-2018 Season Outlook

    For now I will assume that Parker plays elsewhere. BLo will have to compete for touches with Giannis, Bledsoe and Middleton and will also have guys like Henson and Thon looking for PT. However, he can still be pretty useful for fantasy getting 28MPG with good %'s BLK, and 3PM from the C position. I'm assuming he won't get jerked around like he did in LA. He could definitely post top 60 fantasy #'s.
  14. Most improved defenses 2018

    How about WAS as a real sleeper DEF for 2018. I read somewhere that WAS had the 2nd most sacks in the league over the 2nd half of the season. Kerrigan is great and Preston Smith is really solid. Last year's 1st rd pick DL Jonathan Allen needs to come back healthy (Lisfranc ended his 2017) and produce + 2018 #13 overall pick Da'Ron Payne offer some serious upside to this defensive front. Solid secondary too led by JNorman. Not in anyone's top 20 rankings right now but crazier things have happened...
  15. #1 pick in rookie dynasty draft

    Agreed! JJJ a future fantasy stud with 2+ 3PM & 2 BLK per game plus solid %'s and other nice stats (minus AST).
