  1. Myles Turner 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    ^ESPN has him at #23 PF now. But regardless, in most standard leagues only one PF must be owned per team along with maybe a SF/PF slot. Him not even cracking the top 20 of his position makes my point. In a ten team league, for example, only 10 PFs -must- be owned. Even if every team held two top twenty PFs, Turner would still be in droppable/streamable range. Like I said, the point isn't that he should be on waivers in every league. But pretending he should be seen as undroppable in every circumstance is just dumb at this point, especially now that the trade deadline has long since passed. It just depends on the particular situation. Much like dropping other players at his overall and/or positional ranking, such as, Bojan/Bogdan Bogdanovic (top 20ish SGs top 75ish overall), Courtney Lee (top 20 SG, to 70ish), Taurean Prince, Jeremy Lamb, etc. etc. etc., any of whom might be also be droppable in the right circumstance as well. All those guys have had similar to better overall and/or positional production. And the list is much longer than that. The point is simple. Turner's production has been purely streamable and nowhere near undroppable. In fact, if you dropped this guy a couple months back you've probably done much better streaming PFs for multiple starts than locking in Turner for his 3-4 starts/week. Like I said, it's just silly to pretend otherwise at this point.

    Like I said, the point was never that he should be on waivers in every league in every instance. It's that it's stupid to see him as being "undroppable" in every instance. Other guys around that rank shouldn't be seen as undroppable either. And it's just dumb to pretend otherwise. Also, like I said, he's outside the top 25 PFs. You chose only to analyze the top 75 part of what I said for a very good reason. Of course, that's intentionally obtuse, since it ignores the fact that the top 75 isn't spread out perfectly by position. If PF-eligible guys are over-represented in the top 75, then clinging to Turner over another guy who can contribute at a more needed position is still foolish, even if his overall rank is slightly lower. There are plenty of better choices at PF. If you happen to have 2-3 of the PFs that are better than Turner, and the trade deadline has long passed, it's stupid to just carry dead weight if there's another one of the 80-90 or so guys who have done about as well or better than he has this season available on waivers.

    ^How about any format where a guy outside the top 25 PFs and top 75 overall is droppable? The point isn't that he should be on waivers in every single league. But the argument that he is absolutely undroppable in every circumstance and every league is obviously laughable at this point.

    At least, that's what the geniuses in this thread were spouting a couple months ago when I cut bait... That said, he's probably been playing hurt recently just like he has for most of the season. Personally, I would still draft him next year for the right price.

    Check your bill. They auto-renewed me for $115.99 on my credit card bill a few days ago. I called to have it removed. Not saying it's not worth $116. I just didn't like that they auto billed me for it without my consent or even informing me in an email. I had signed up for the big discount some time in the middle of last season. But that's the problem with giving out your credit card for some deal that's too good to be true. I'm sure a lot of folks won't even notice the charge. All that said, I'll probably still sign up this year once it's discounted again. And then I'll go to a few games and pay $100/ticket so I can buy their $10 hotdogs/beers. Such is life for a baseball fan.

    Much of the above is incorrect. The most important part being this: Kawhi has actually been medically cleared to play by at least one team of real doctors, which is much more reliable than any fake RW doctors here giving his % chances. If you admit Turner "won't get you to the playoffs," then why tout his playoff value at all, let alone compare it to Kawhi Leonard's a far greater asset in playoffs or anywhere else. CSB as far as all those guys I mentioned being on your roster. My point was that they are all basically waiver pickups, which is why I chose to label Turner's production as waiver-level.
  7. Myles Turner 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    ^ If you're relying on Turner to get you to the "playoffs," you might as well get an early start on fantasy baseball right now. In terms of clinging onto either one of these fantasy turds for the purposes of playoffs, there is no question that Kawhi Leonard is a much better player and far bigger asset both in fantasy and real life. I'm not sure why that comparison would even be made in terms of fantasy playoffs. As far as regular season and/or roto, there are 81 other players who have been better than Myles Turner in fantasy according to ESPN's player rater, including guys like Taurean Prince, Kyle Anderson, Lauri Markkanen, John Collins, Jeremy Lamb, and the list goes on... and on. If you don't consider that waiver level production, that's fine. But good luck making the playoffs or winning a roto league with it.

    More like 6th-7th round production. Myles Turner is #82 on the player rater, right behind Taurean Prince, a waiver pick up. I mean I get your point that Turner would have more streamable value than Leonard since he has at least played. But basically both guys have put up waiver-level production, which is really where they've belonged all season.

    In a league like that I would personally go with 6-7 SPs and 2 closers, and I would only start drafting closers once they were all off the board, to grab the last few. But the number of closers you want to draft and carry through the season kinda depends on league size. In a 10 team league, there are exactly three available closers per fantasy team (not counting committees, unknowns, etc.). In a 14 team league, it's more like two.

    ^the entire internet has crapped all over them since that announcement though. So they might change their minds.

    30 points 6 assists. I guess he's healthy.
  12. Jeff Teague 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    He missed time with a knee injury. Hopefully that isn't the problem still.
  13. Bismack Biyombo 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    You'd think he'd have at least rebounded one of his three blocks.
  14. Myles Turner 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    ^So what? The waiver guys on Yahoo would have different names and %s. But the point remains the same. Plus those weren’t the only guys I mentioned. And like I said there are others. But yeah. Come to think of it Own% is also “ruined” by people clinging to dead weight like Paul Millsap, Myles Turner and Kawhi Leonard. Just because a guy guy has talent doesn’t mean he’s undroppable. Damaged goods are damaged goods.
  15. Myles Turner 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Some lowish owned guys on ESPN that have been as good as or better than Turner (player rater) so far this season: Kent Bazemore (56%), Josh Richardson (53%), Courtney Lee (35%), Justin Holiday (44%), Thaddeus Young (64%). There are others. Now granted, those guys are not big men like Turner. So if you really need blocks (personally I don't), it's much harder to drop him even though -anyone- you pick up will be better until Turner can at least get back onto the court. And I'm not sure why anyone would think his season long injury woes will suddenly change after this latest elbow thing, which would have ended his season if they had chosen surgery like they were talking about. Even if you're block starved there are low-owned guys out there who are healthy and get blocks: John Henson (23% owned, 1.5 blocks per game and rising along with his minutes) Ekpe Udoh (1.3%, 1.3 blocks on super low minutes). Bismack Biyombo (42%, 1.3 blocks and rising fast along with minutes) That last guy is probably the only one that has really caught my eye the last couple weeks though. I mean, I'm not saying Turner can't end up being a bad drop. I'm just saying he could also end up being a *bad hold*. But sure, he might have a miracle recovery, play tomorrow, and dominate the league ROS. Fine. Just don't tell me he can't be dropped or that there are no other options on any waiver wire that could possibly have any chance of putting up better numbers or good blocks. That's just not true. Now obviously if you can get some sucker to trade you KAT for him, by all means do so. Personally, I'd say if you can even still get Steven Adams for him, you're robbing the bank. But if your league sees him as damaged, waiver level goods, you can either drop him or let him keep dragging you down. And remember, some leagues have a lot of trades going on all the time while others have tons of adds/drops. It really just depends on the league. And points leagues, for example, don't care about blocks at all. Anyway, I'm just saying to call this guy *totally undroppable* 40-50 games into the season just seems more blind faith than objective reasoning. Especially while he's sitting on the bench with a blown out elbow that almost ended his season. If you're saying he -could- come back and dominate, that's fine. Just remember to add "or not" at the end. On the other hand, maybe I just dropped him so I could finally have an excuse to to change my dumb team name from "100 Myles and Runnin'" to an even dumber 100 yards and limpin'.
