  1. Several years ago I came across an article online about "magic numbers", they called it. Basically it was a stat line you try to average on your roster that would have likely clinch you a playoff spot.. it was something like (off the top of my head): 17 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists, 1.5 steals, 1 block, 1 three, 1.5 turnovers, .480 / .820 In today's NBA, I'd say increase the threes and points, maybe steals too. The strategy was to try and get 6 or 7 of these numbers. It's hard.
  2. Is AD the #1 in these settings 100%?
  3. Was really nice to see him knock down threes last year while maintaining his FG%. Crazy that last year at .486 on 14 attempts was his worst year. Also love the spike in FT. My concern is missed games, as I am a H2H player. Pretty much missed half the season in 3 of his 5 years and hasn't played more than 66 in a season. IIRC with weird head injuries that don't really have timetables. Love the per game stats, though it's really annoying when he's scheduled for 12 games in 3 weeks and only plays 3. I think I'll be looking for value picks from guys like Joe Harris, Josh Richardson, Bogdan Bogdanovic, Kelly Oubre Jr instead of taking TJ Warren as my 6th man (finished 75th per BBM).
  4. Came here for Gordon Hayward info, I'm excited to not draft him this year because I will never return to this thread
  5. Talking about league, not platform. Clearly you didn't read his post, "If you are in a draft where..." Welcome to the forums.
  6. @young_styler, Fox was selected by Hinkie at the end of Round 4
  7. I'm hesitant to take players near their ceiling, but I guess in that 20-35 range they have similar upside
  8. I'm having a tough time ranking Myles Turner, Siakam and Collins. They were picked within a round of each other. Obviously Turner takes blocks and looks to lose points, but the other categories are very close. I feel like Siakam's price tag of "top-25" is a bit rich for my taste, even as a homer. I hope people will sleep on Collins a bit, with more "popular" players' names being thrown around in the media and socials, so Collins can provide a bit more value for his ADP. What do you guys think?
  9. Can't missed games be managed by sitting the player in roto? If there are max games for positions, players that will only play 60 games have more value in roto don't they?
  10. Also, no discussion on available players! Good luck everyone
  11. You can have my spot, I prefer H2H. Good luck! I'll be judging your team the most :ninja: Edit: WTF, did they get rid of the ninja emoji? Edit 2: If it's okay with everyone else..... :ninja:
  12. Traded up for him in a keeper league. Sent a bunch of mid rounds to that team that needed depth and am excited to have him as a long-time keeper
  13. It may be hard to find because the words aren't a metric for games played. Also because it doesn't matter that much I guess?
