  1. 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.
  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. It's fair. Given what he showed in the second half of season, not to mention longer and stronger, this guy is worth your bet to party with stocks. His ceiling is better than prime ak47
  6. 4 of the many reasons not to draft Zion at his ADP: 1. ADP IS TOO HIGH: He is too hyped even for his max potential this year. Man, this guy is already injured! lol 2. HIS SHOOTING IS HORRIBLE: I don't expect his shooting to improve unless he fundamentally restructures. 3. THIS IS NBA: There are many players in NBA that can guard Zion physically down low. He will also struggle with foul trouble. 4. FUN PLAYER: His ADP looks like a candy that people can't resist picking for the FUN factor. Testing your gambling mind...
  7. He showed flashes of fantasy greatness last year - I think his ceiling this year is top 40. Thoughts?
  8. Sure. Many can make 3s in today’s game and therefore Buddy isn’t justified as 3rd pick in my mind. However, get someone who can sure do twice more three’s than average specialist and pair with players who excel at stocks but no 3s - easier to find and not as expensive such as Isaac, Nurkic, etc.
  9. Do not sleep on JJJ. Similar talent as Mitch Rob but more all-around.
  10. Funny thing is the team won by 18 - he didn't really have to try so hard to make shots lol... He could be a drop candidate at this rate.
  11. Dropped J Allen for this guy - fingers crossed now. 🤞
  12. I wouldn’t bother with him this year as talent is stacked in G positions in Denver. The chance of him producing great numbers would be as good as every other guards.
  13. I think he might just turn 'probable' for next week. I'm considering taking that chance and drop Ariza for Covington.
  14. This kid can def produce... close to what I hoped JRich would do this year. Actually considering the swap now.
  15. He seems to be doing better of late. However, he's still not as productive this season overall. Did the injury ruin him indeed? Help me understand.
  16. I think he's been coming through for a few games now. I'm holding but it makes sense to shop around if you have other needs.
  17. Within the last 30 minutes, I just traded A Gordon for Middleton and Warren + Whiteside for Oladipo in 12 team leagues. They are still buy-lows.
  18. Seriously, it doesn’t make sense to hold him so long in IR when he’s indefinite to be back to where he was. There are other injuries to take care of.
  19. So productive every minute - he's looking like a hold in 10+ team leagues right now. Any chance that Kieff and Howard get moved out? I would hope that GM knows Bryant has the tools to become something great and develop him asap.
  20. Bryant isn’t so clear in his path with Mahimni in rotation and Howard coming back later, but has shown a very high upside. Anderson has started to show more consistency with his overall production. Who is your drop in h2h 10 team league? This move is to activate G Harris off IR.
  21. The rate of his production reminds me of Nurkic before this year, getting 20-30 minutes per night, oozing with upside but can’t be consistent. is Harrell complete enough of a player to get 30-40 min a night as a starter in NBA?
  22. He is talented indeed. Watching him play, it reminded me when I was impressed with Siakam earlier this season. He is very quick and long, able to penetrate at ease but tends to give up for an open man instead of finishing.
  23. Great. I get that this kid is good at least. But how good is he? must-start in 12-team? I picked him up in 10-team based on his production in last 7 days. In my view, he can be another candidate for ww pickup of the year.
  24. The nickname Slow-Mo is resonating as he's slowly producing to the expectations. Dropped Mikal for him in 10 team league.
  25. Butler side - Ball has too many downsides. While the number comparison can make it sound like a fair trade, consider roster spots too - you need to get rid of a player for the trade to work. That’s why people typically favors the side with the best player in the trade.
