  1. Definitely wasn't aware of that. Dang.
  2. Cause all 4 teams will start tanking closer to end of season to improve their odds of getting Zion. And the first 4 teams tend to have the best odds (25%, 19.9%, 13.8%, 13.7% of landing the #1 pick)
  3. So a couple of items to go through: 1. This year, we had Ayton getting picked as high as late 3rd - early 4th round in 9-cat 12-teams. How high could Zion 'once in a generation / next LeBron' get picked? There's no way anyone would consider spending a 2nd round pick on a rookie, right? 2. How many teams are going to deliberately start tanking to get him, and what are the fantasy implications? Seems to be a 4-way battle between Knicks, Bulls, Cavs and Suns for the eventual #1 pick where he's likely to go. If I owned any players from those teams (see: Zach Lavine), I'd start trying to unload. If you're holding out for someone to come back from injury from these teams (see: Porzingis, Love), I just don't see the teams featuring those guys when there's a shot at the Zion sweepstakes - there's nothing to gain for either of them by playing those guys.

    Yup, lol. No way Porz plays this season. Knicks are in the Zion sweepstakes - it makes zero sense for them to play Porz. Next year Knicks, if they get Zion, could include Porz, Zion + 1-2 max players. That's a nice core to build around long term.

    Guys - I think folks need to temper their expectations big-time on this guy. So far, he's been way more hype/potential than actual value. Last year, averaging 30 MPG in an ideal situation, he was the 227th ranked player in 9-cat (65+ game sample size). He's not going to be a game changer in any way, regardless of where he lands. Move on. I'm in 2 competitive 12-teamer money leagues, and no one is touching him.
  6. Thomas Bryant - 2018 - 2019 Season Outlook

    Minutes don't matter if he's still churning out 3rd round value. Also, there's no indication of D12 being anywhere close to a return, and we know Morris is out for another 5~ weeks. Alongside Beal's explosion, Bryant's play has been one of the silver linings from an otherwise horrid Wizards season. Bryant, at 21, is their future at center. Expect him to be getting at least 20-25 min even after the team is healthy, and that'll be enough to return Top-50 value.
  7. Thomas Bryant - 2018 - 2019 Season Outlook

    I don't get all the drop talk. He's been 3rd round value in 9-cat per game over the last month. 2nd round value over the last 2 weeks. Guy's a stud glue-guy in just 25 mpg.
  8. Demarcus Cousins 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    I think he'll be a solid mid-rounder. While the Warriors are of course focused entirely on the playoffs, it's still a contract year for Boogie, and as Kerr mentioned in an interview earlier this year, they're looking at Boogie to give them a boost for the playoffs, while he's looking for them to put him in a good position for his next contract, with no intention of staying on beyond this year. Expect there to be at least a few 'showcase' kind of games leading up to the playoffs for Boogie. But don't think he'll play B2Bs at all.

    Oh man, like on BBM:

    That's not even true lol. Both Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson had higher rebounds per minute than Nance. TT is the better rebounder.

    What now? Sorry, is this based on just anecdotal viewing evidence or on real analysis/stats.
