  1. See here’s the tough thing, there’s no real “secrets” to fantasy. So you come out with this tough talk by saying you’re almost always right. I agree with the idea of not doing exactly what these guys suggest but now I’m genuinely curious as to some of your hot takes. Don’t give away all your “secrets” by any means but if you’re as good as you say you are post on the bold predictions or something to that effect. What’s the point in making the big claims and saying the experts are trash if you’re not going to give YOUR takes on guys
  2. Well he’s not going to get it right %100 of the time but I happen to find him more knowledgeable then most, and I for one find the BBM analytics to be the best. It’s not fool proof but it helps to pull off trades in your favour and especially does a good job at analyzing your team to predict how you stack up against your competition. Nothing is fool proof but it’s a close as it gets to accurate. I don’t really listen to Gallagher so no opinion on him. As for Lloyd we can just agree to disagree.
  3. I mean Josh Lloyd has helped me win my dynasty league 4/7 years but you’re probably right. I can’t wait for your podcast to come out!
  4. You do you man and we’ll see who’s closer to being right soon enough.
  5. What’s interesting is that his rebounds and assist numbers mirrored his Utah days despite playing 8min less per game. What dipped was his usage obviously. If his confidence can return then I think his usage goes up as well. As people mentioned earlier his ppg likely won’t return because he’s likely the 3rd option offensively. I don’t think it’s out of the question for his minutes to be over 30 again and to average about 16ppg with decent % and around 4-5 assists and rebounds. Not sure what ranking that would be but where he’ll go in most drafts he would be a value pick
  6. It’s a points league mock draft so that changes things for one, and two BBM guys know their stuff. I don’t understand the extreme Hayward hate, unless you drafted him last year and got burned. The facts are he had a big injury and has now had one full season to recover, and has been an above average to elite player for years. If you can’t see the bounce back potential I don’t know what to tell you. In my experience guys that only prescribe to the “what have you done for me lately?” mentality don’t typically do well in fantasy
  7. I've already been thinking ahead to next season at some players that could have nice bounce back seasons after disappointing this season. These guys come to mind, and I'm wondering if people have a few others on their radar. Gary Harris Gordon Hayward Taurean Prince Ricky Rubio Dario Saric I feel like Harris and Hayward could bounce back nicely but have my doubts on the other three. Who do you got as a bounce back and why?
  8. H2H 8 Cat Dynasty Absolutely rolled through the regular season with a win percentage of .741, but it wasn't without its bumps. End of Season Roster Lonzo, Jrue, Collison Hield, Beal, Ingles Isaac, Tobias, Gallo Horford KAT, Nurk, Robinson (1 stream spot) I dealt with a lot of injuries. Traded Dipo for Lavine + Gallo, then flipped Lavine for Hield + Horford. Traded Carter Jr. for a 1st round pick then activated Robinson (owned the rights to him, league settings require a rookie on active roster). Also traded Jarrett Allen for Collison (not ideal for dynasty but my PG situation was getting dire) Then things got wonky in the finals. Nurk got injured as we all know, so that hurt more, however I was still projected to beat my opponent 6-2 even with 3 injured players. However, the commissioner never issued a trade deadline (dynasty) which enabled active playoff teams to trade (which was so ridiculous a forum couldn't hold my rant). My opponent took full advantage and went nuts on the trading to maximize games. He traded AD for Jokic, Paul for DJ + Adams, Kyrie for Westbrook, and about 3 more minor trades. I was forced to trade Jrue for Kuzma + pick (terrible but not many options), and Nurk for Millsap. I then had to trade Kuz for WCS to compete in boards and FG. In the end even with an older and worse roster I still won 5-3 for my 4th title in 7 years. Special thanks to Mitch Robinson and Gallo for going HAM on the boards and for Nurk for being awesome all year (get well soon).

  10. I watched that “popped” clip a few times and it looks more like he’s saying “it didn’t pop”. Probably responding to a trainers question trying figure out what was wrong. I’ve panicked hard before on something like this (draymonds non contact knee injury last year) and he ended up missing a game or two, and that one looked worse. We’ll all find out soon enough, but I think there’s a lot to be hopeful about
  11. Drafted him with the 24th pick in my dynasty league rookie draft, back on the day of the draft. I had to trade my 1st round pick this year just to get the pick but he was still out there and I couldn't pass him up. A few of my fellow managers laughed at me no doubt...now I'm the only one laughing. I've got him, Carter jr. and KAT, so about 8-10 years of dominance should be coming my way
  12. Sweet. I always appreciate when someone gets a better eye test. Those were some of the things I was thinking too, and I agree it's hard to know how each guy will develop and what the teams will do around them.
  13. What's everyone thoughts on him dynasty wise? How does he stack up against someone like Jarrett Allen for example? Having watched both of them play, though not extensively, I find Robinson to be more intriguing long-term and I think his foul shooting could improve to above 70% in the years to come. Thoughts?
  14. Let's chat then! haha. Yeah he's such a tricky player to player to trade for because we know that he gives you something very few will give back. In my league I know I won't be able to get Simmons, he's untouchable, Kawhi? Maybe. If you manage to get him for anyone, let me know!
