  1. Taurean Prince 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    I think people are too occupied and worried about Trae dominating the offense. He's not taking 40 shots a game. If anything he's gonna get a ton of attention and make excellent passes to Prince, Collins, etc, and hopefully set them up for easy shots / buckets. I'm betting Prince will get all the shots and playing time he can handle and that Young's presence benefits him more than hurts him.
  2. Caris LeVert 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    I agree. I'd rather have him on the nets than wolves by far.
  3. Caris LeVert 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Oh last pick its not even a question. That means you're in a 10 team or noncompetitive league. I would go for him around pick 100, especially if I needed guard stats. He's gonna get big minutes (for the Nets that's about 28-30). He's one of the building blocks of this franchise. Would not be surprised to see him starting at SF. If he comes off the bench even better - he'll feast on second units. He'll possibly start at PG if D-lo gets hurt again, and will likely fill in backup minutes there anyway. His upside is still really high. Predicting 16 points / 4 reb / 4 ast / 1.5 stl / 1.5 threes That's probably good for close to top 60-75 value.
  4. Taurean Prince 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Love. Predicting 36+ minutes + high usage. 18 points / 3 assists / 5 reb / 1.5 stl / 0.5 blks / 2.7 threes / 43% FG / 85% FT Would have to take in the 5th or 6th round, or you're probably not getting him.
  5. Punt Assists 2018-2019

    You can get 3 pointers later in the draft, but big man stats are a little more scarce. If you miss out on a big early you're looking at Turner/Collins/Allen/Whiteside/Nurk/Adams/DJ, etc, plus shot blocking wings to make up the blocks. After that it's pretty tough. But even later than that you could take shooters like Reddick, Crabbe, Hield, Ingles, Eric Gordon, Joe Harris, etc to try and catch up on 3's. To respond on taking Jokic and punting assists - I think that's a terrible idea. I don't get why people would take a player who makes such a huge impact in a category then immediately say ah I don't want that value let's punt it. NO! If anything he gives you such a big advantage in assists that you can fill in with assists later when the value is right, rather than reaching on assists. If anything I would probably be leaning to a punt in either points or blocks, and maybe shoot for CP3, Love, PG, Jrue, Booker, Gobert/Capela on the way back.
  6. Clint Capela 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Yes its pretty true. Depending how many teams and what format. It's usually Gobert + Drummond in the early-mid 2nd round. Then Capela, then its a big drop off to Turner or the next shot blocking big. So probably late 2nd, especially if you're leaning toward punting points or FT or just stacking big man stats. I took him at #24 in a 14 teamer to pair with AD (after my other 4 targets were taken PG, Gobert, Drummond, Jrue).
  7. Rudy Gobert 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    It's total value. I'm pretty sure it means total stats, not per game stats. Capela played 18 more games than Gobert, thus the discrepancy.
  8. Mitchell Robinson 2018-19 Season Outlook

    A timeshare would be awesome for Robinson's value (versus riding the bench or getting 10 min/game). If he can get around 20 min/game I think he can put up relevant value - maybe 8 points / 6 boards / 1 steal / 1.5 blocks on 60+% FG and negligent FT on minimal attempts. Maybe those projections are a tad high but definitely attainable. I could see something like Kanter 25 min/game - Robinson 20 min/game - maybe some other player Kornet or something around 3-5 min/game.
  9. Donovan Mitchell Season Outlook 2018-2019

    (Watch out the A/C forum cops might get ya!) PG and Butler are way ahead of CJ. CJ imo is way overrated and had stretches last year outside the top 60. I wouldn't touch him until the 4th or 5th round at the earliest. Butler is a lock to get hurt at some point and is a solid DND for me until late 2nd/early 3rd. George is probably the safest pick. Mitchell will likely be the most fun to own.
  10. Donovan Mitchell Season Outlook 2018-2019

    I'm going to say that 5 is insane, but top 10 is totally reasonable. He's likely going to lead the league in steals, score over 20 points, gets about as many rebounds + assists as other 1st round guards Lillard and Curry (and more than double the steals than Lillard), and gets close to 1 block a game from the guard position. Plus over 2 threes per game. That's EASY top 10.
  11. Kemba Walker 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    I do think his FG will bump up a little. He's really worked on finishing at the rim this offseason. A small improvement there can only help.
  12. Punt Assists 2018-2019

    I really couldn't believe it either. I think Giannis, KAT, Durant, and Westbrook went top 4. So both Harden and AD fell to 5 and 6. Unbelievable. Giannis is below both imo. The numbers guys will definitely say its AD and Harden 1 and 2 and it's not even close.
  13. Punt Assists 2018-2019

    Probably Middleton and Harris would be your next 3's/steals/% play. J Rich and Covington are also options. Sorry its unclear who your first pick is (Embiid in the 2nd).
  14. Rudy Gobert 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Not sure about that...im pretty sure Gobert gets more points, rebounds, blocks, and has a higher FT.
  15. Punt Assists 2018-2019

    Just drafted in a 14 team h2h league with deep bench. I got AD at 5 and was gonna punt assists but another team was also punting assists, and a few teams loaded up on assists, so there was a somewhat barren wasteland between about 5-7 teams with low assist numbers. So I switched gears and took some players later to make up the difference - Batum, James Johnson, Levert, Augustin, Lin. Only other guard I had with assists is Kemba. Hopefully it's enough to win against most of the lower assist teams. If I can win half of those matches that could be an extra 10+ wins on the year, which could be a huge difference.
