  1. 2018-2019 Breakout Candidates

    hey guys I used to love posting here regularly the past few years. Decided to retire from fantasy b-ball, been doing it since '02 and became fatigued of the process with real life happening. I'll definitely miss getting ready for drafts though! I'll probably Brett Favre this and be back sooner rather than later. Wish you all the best of luck in your drafts and leagues this season peace!

    I've been holding, those steals are too good to pass up with the rest of the lines he's putting up. I love per-mintue guys, as long as he keeps doing this I don't have a reason to drop yet, regardless of the minutes. If Isaac creeps in and he disappears for more than a few games then I'll gladly drop, but for now no.

    15 / 7 / 3 / 5 / 2 would've been sweet if he hit some 3's to round out the line but damn..
  4. I don't think anyone is expecting this level of output, but it certainly shows what he's capable of.. and this isn't like a Terrence Ross hit 50 situation, Bobby Portis always had way higher upside. I'm a Raps fan and Ross potential was severely over-blown. Dude was a mediocre off the bench 3 and "D" guy, he can't really dribble and does the same pull up move every time he goes left, had the worst FTA ratio among all college wing players. Usually when you can't create your own shot and don't drive/take contact it means all you do is catch and shoot - hence why guys like Wes Johnson always sucked. Portis on the other hand has a post game, floaters, he has a handle for his size, he's not a bad passer, and he has a pretty sweet catch and shoot game. His NBA comparison was a prime David West, which is pretty high praise.

    With Vucevic back you'll see his FG% tick back up over time. It's still concerning though just how massive the drop off was. We're talking about a guy who was top 30 for about a month and a half, and he completely fell off the face of the earth once that calf injury hit and he came back without Vuc around.. Here's to hoping he bounces back, but right now sadly he's probably the worst player on my entire squad, which I guess says a lot for where I'm at, but also shows how poorly he's played.
  6. wtf... When you come back to your laptop and check his stats.... how sweet it is

    Have to disagree about the middle part... if they don't play him he's even LESS likely to re-sign there on a rookie scale 1 year deal.. teams obviously see what he's doing right now - scouts aren't stupid. Some bad team (like the Hawks or BKN or Mavs) whom are talent starved would definitely make an effort to sign him, so not playing him is essentially a death sentence, the only way they can hope to retain him is to play him and sell him on the idea that they want to build forward with him as part of the core.
  8. Will Barton 2017-18 Season Outlook

    It's also because he gets to play more with Jokic and other starters.. it's far more effective than having to play with Lyles / Faried / Plumlee like he did in spurts when he was coming off the bench. Jokic makes guys like Harris and Barton even better..
  9. Will Barton 2017-18 Season Outlook

    They should knock Wilson Chandler to the bench in favour of Barton.. Barton is just clearly a far more impactful starter, Wilson is taking the small ball 4 approach who can defend smaller 4's, but with Millsap back he seems like a better choice to head to the bench with the way Barton is playing.
  10. Will Barton 2017-18 Season Outlook

    I saw some people wondering what's with his inconsistent jekyll and hyde runs, it's one of the simpler stats to dig out: That's about as straight forward as it gets. I REALLY hope they don't let Millsap come back as a starter for the sake of my team, when this guy plays well I'm way harder to beat because as a starter he's a top 2 round value.. Those are Middleton stats with more 3's, more blocks, more assists, and fewer FTA/PPG attempts type stats...Unreal difference between him as a sub and as a starter, I hope Malone notices.
  11. James Johnson 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    His minutes are the same.. he was just playing like crap the entire season outside of the first month or so.
  12. This guy is so good that despite his teammates' shortcomings and not passing him the ball for entire quarters (yes I watch the games, and sometimes he gets 1 SHOT in an entire half), he's still ranked #1 in total value and has been #1 based on average stats over the past two weeks and #2 past 30 days.
