  1. Nic Batum 2017-2018 outlook

    Wonderful. AG, Lauri, Gary and now Nic. goodbye playoffs
  2. Vent & Rant Thread 2017-2018

    First round of playoffs. Opponent (who's had a relatively injury free season and isn't really active on the waiver wire) only has Aldridge and Lowry missing 1 game so far this week. Meanwhile I've lost Boogie, barely made it to playoffs, and now I have to deal with AG and Lauri missing the entire week and Gary Harris probably missing tomorrow. Not to mention Lillard possibly missing Sunday for the birth of his daughter as well. Had to painfully drop Lauri for Evan Turner for a Sat/Sun streamer along with my existing streamer spot, and I know if I do make it to the next round my opponent's gonna pick him up and play him against me. Just hope I can pull off a miracle. I'm leading by 30 fantasy points but I'm down by 2 games for the rest of the week. It's so frustrating working your way to the playoffs and building your team up only to see everything go down the drain due to injuries. The funny thing is I would've avoided this nightmare matchup and actually would've kept Lauri if I tanked the last round of the regular season for an easier matchup with someone who's lost Curry and Klay and is still holding on to them....
  3. What a damn beast. Post-ASB Lillard is real. Taking over my team's first-rounder production left behind by the loss of Boogie.
  4. Austin Rivers 2017-18 Season Outlook

    No love for this guy? Playing big minutes - 35 minutes today even with Milos back in. Even though Milos may be working his way back to playing 20+ minutes a game, it looks like Bradley will be the one mainly losing out + Doc has played him at the 3 as well so I feel he should be pretty solid ROS. Not to mention that playoff schedule.
  5. John Wall 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    If it's 2 months he's pretty much out for most league's fantasy playoffs (save the finals). Most likely a drop. If it's 6 weeks he's a strong hold for those who are a lock as he'll be back just before playoffs begin. Estimated tmeline plays a huge role come fantasy playoff season.
  6. Looking to beef up my team for playoffs. Bradley just got dropped by an owner before the trade happened - the playoff schedule is enticing and I'm confident Doc will help turn his season around. But there's always a chance he goes to trash.. Team in sig. Do I have any one to drop? Am thinking of D Murray as a drop but he's been so good - just not sure if he will provide consistent production due to his lack of shooting ability.
  7. Pretty much official.
  8. Pretty much guaranteed season ender.
  9. Wait for something official from Gentry or Woj or Marc Stein, then drop if it's serious.
  10. Everything seems to be pointing to an achilles injury..... God please I hope not.
  11. Jabari Parker 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    I believe he can go back to his full allocation of 30+ minutes by the time March rolls around - about a week after the ASB. This is assuming he returns right on schedule before the ASB, of course. This is a similar timeline to how Middleton came back from his hamstring tear last season. He is a core piece of their franchise and is sorely needed for their playoff push. Two ACL tears is no joke, but so was Middleton's hamstring tear - it was literally torn off the bone, he was expected to miss the entire season, and yet he somehow managed to come back in time to be a fantasy stud for playoffs. With Parker, his teammates are raving about his recovery, he's been in game shape for quite some time, he looks healthy and he's probably working on his conditioning - it will be slow at first, but I don't see how it would take too long for him to get back in the swing of things.
