  1. I think he is underrated this year because of D Jordan. He will get more opportunity than expected while Jordan takes more of a veteran support with efficient stats - the trend is for Allen to get more PT into the season. Should be better than last year for fantasy stats.
  2. What was the adp and the resulting rank of Lebron in his rookie season?
  3. This guy vs. D. Jones Jr. Who is your pick? Very different players. I think Herro will be limited in rotation for being a rookie. Jones Jr. could take the next step with more minutes.
  4. Who else liked what they saw from Fultz today? He's super fast and acrobatic. His jumper looks stable as well. He is ready to develop in the NBA style baby. Definitely going to crush his ADP as well. I'm targeting in the last 2 rounds, if he's available.
  5. This guy is definitely one of the sleepers. He can easily go under radar because he hasn't proven as much compared to other available players. I find his ceiling to be 2 3's / 2 stls / 1 blk I would gladly pick him up at 7th-8th round.
  6. Oubre for me. Miles hasn't shown he can make shots and score as much as Oubre has last year. Oubre is also a great bet for 2-1.5-1 guy. I would pick him up at 6th-7th, if available.
  7. I prefer to punt because then you are taking advantage of the game. While everyone else is competing for 9 cats, you are playing potential 8 to 7 cats - this is huge. Suddenly Westbrook and Drummond become 1st round value players for you. Into the season, In FA pool, I can afford to pick up a player that others are afraid to because I don't care about that weakness. I believe your winning rate is higher with a punt strategy because you are selectively giving up a category or two and reinforcing your strengths further more. As long as you can focus on 5 cats that you are confident in. You are on your way to championships. My favorite punt is TO because players with a high TO rate tends to be dynamic in numbers as well - imagine Harden, RWB, Simmons/Doncic, etc. I find FT% punt less attractive these days because there are many emerging centers that can shoot those - I don't find it necessary.
  8. I'm not sure about Wiggins. He would be more of an obstacle -- how to win with Wiggins on my team? My bold prediction: Ingram will break out to be a 1/1/1 player. He will be top 80.
  9. What are your expectations for his average this year?
  10. Once Ayton can make 3s, I will sign up then. Very shy with 3s/stls/blks, he just doesn't feel like a 2nd round pick. I would pick J Collins ahead of Ayton. He seemed to have figured it out towards the end.
  11. Dwight still has a chance to be relevant in this league. Also not to say that he hasn't been. He doesn't have jumpers but he can very much run with the fast pace and play good defence. Capela may have surpassed Dwight in fantasy but in real life, it's not that far off.
  12. While Kyrie is indeed more of an exciting player with a higher upside (although he didn't really show that in the past 2 years) They are fairly similar in value at this point of their career. Even with injury, I would say they are equally prone to it. Just gotta pick and choose categories based on your previous pick.
  13. I wonder about this as well. Even last year when he had occasions to play extended minutes, he never was given that time fully. This year is a better bet for his playing time, thus justifying his current ADP. However, what are the current risk factors? Bad coaching? Foul trouble?
  14. If all stars align and he remains healthy, what are the numbers we can expect? With a positive view, I will say: 49% / 88% / 2.9 3s / 25 pts / 5 reb / 8ast / 1.5 stl / 0.5 blk / 2.5 TO That looks like a top 10 player to me.
  15. Woah, I didn't know he avged 3.3 blocks for the reason at his prime. He must have been top 5 pick at that time then?
