  1. D'Angelo Russell 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Bad move IMO. Players who have had these kinds of surgeries ended up missing only about a little more than a month or so. It's still a long season and there's no confirmation Russell will be out for the rest of it. Hopefully your number 2 priority is enough to get him back because it's very likely he'll be snatched up from waivers in a competitive league.

    Much better start today disregarding the TO's in the beginning. The previous game must've lit a fire in him. He looks better defensively, they're giving the ball to him down low and dominating Love, hopefully this is a sign of things to come.
  3. D'Angelo Russell 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    This. I don't get why people are saying he won't be back for the season. It's not as bad as surgery for a fracture or a torn muscle etc.
  4. Justin Holiday 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    I concur. I can see why you'd hate him if he tanks your FG in a cat league but in a points league he provides fine volume stats for a waiver pickup so I'm still holding on to him. He's even better than let's say a J-Rich in a points league. I hope he starts at the 3 once LaVine comes back so he'll take better shots.
  5. Rajon Rondo 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Looks so damn good in that Pels offense.
  6. Deandre Jordan 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    So.. fouled out, 2 points 5 rebs, overall underwhelming production without CP3 around... Not wanting to panic here, but is this DJ what we're going to get ROS? Is he done? He looks lazy on defense, doesn't run the floor as much now, and he doesn't hustle for rebounds as much as he used to.
  7. Rajon Rondo 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Can't wait for this guy to get back. Was beasting in my points league back when he was in Sac. People may have soured on him because of last season in Chicago but it's much different for a PG like Rondo playing with two high-usage wing players rather than two twin towers like Boogie and AD. Not to mention that Gentry has mentioned he wants him to be the primary ball handler - and Jameer hasn't really solved the Pels' problems with turnovers. They need a floor general like Rondo for that. I could possibly see a season averaging 9-4-10, with potential for a 1 or 2 more points/assists.
  8. Right now, no. Unless RoLo gets traded by the deadline, it's unlikely. They seem to be committed to Markkanen starting at the 4 as well. With that said, there's a chance RoLo gets shut down or benched for development purposes towards the end of the season. Most likely he'll hang around 25mins. But it's not too bad coming off the bench. He's getting all the usage in the world as the focal point in the second unit.

    Done with this guy. Missed out on Mitchell, Evans, Barton and Portis because I insisted on holding him. He's not getting the volume, and he's historically been too streaky of a shooter for me to justify holding in a points league. With that said, those who play in standard category leagues should hold him for the value of his stocks at the SG position.

    So... anyone knows what may have caused his overall offensive production to drop this year? He was doing fine or even better when CP3 was out the last few Seasons, what's happened this year?
  11. Deandre Jordan 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    The funny thing is I thought he would be even better than last year with the bigger offensive responsibility as well as the pick and roll game with BG being more efficient than with CP3... Should've went with Drummond smh
  12. Greg Monroe 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    So it is looking like a buyout then if no trade? It looks like Monroe is the more likely to be traded as compared to Chandler - Chandler has been quoted to really like it here in Phoenix and he's embracing the leadership role for these young guys. Monroe just doesn't seem like he's valued as a player at all in Phoenix and he's more of an asset...
  13. Josh Richardson 2017-2018 Outlook

    I'm trying to hold him (especially tough when I play in a points league) and I want to be optimistic of a bounce back in terms of him hitting his shots and bolstering his counting stats, but it just seems like he's a non-factor in that offense. How is he going to get it going if the team doesn't let him to begin with or he still keeps being passive with the ball in his hands?
  14. T.J. Warren 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    It's different from last years' injury. If I'm not wrong the rumors about the injury last year were either meningitis or sickle cell which are two completely different injuries from a concussion.
  15. Having trouble deciding who to drop - on one hand, J-Rich is in.a big slump and I'm not sure if he'll break out of it, and Justin Holiday contributes better to my points league even though there's a risk he might lose his starting spot once LaVine comes back. I'm also not sure if he'll slide over to the starting SF slot and he continues to have season-long value. Who's the better drop? Or should I stay put?
