  1. Nikola Jokic 2018-19 Season Outlook

    Yeah i'll put it in the "I was thin at PF and now I'm not" thread next time. Every time I open a thread when I do visit here I find senior members discussing the team they have on player threads. Most of those then proceed to scold newer members for doing the same thing they are already doing. Probably for years. I've pretty much figured out that newer members are generally not welcome. Solid information and knowledge around here though.

    I know people sometimes frown on this kind of talk in the thread but my PF's have been my weak link all season. 20 roster spot league and my rotation has been Ibaka, Vonleh, Marv Williams and Isaac. The super needy PG team in the league offered Aldridge for Teague and Satorasky this afternoon. Took it without blinking and go to set my lineup and see the eligibility. Go freaking figure. I guess I'm loaded at PF now ha.

    Pretty solid commentary. I traded my 3rd and 4th for a 2nd and 6th. I took PG and Oladipo with my 2 2nd rounders. I figured both would be pretty bankable top 20 for sure. I was probably expecting PG to be a little bumpier then Vic. The thing with Vic or any other player like him is that people always look at what has already happened. Going forward is literally the only thing I care about in fantasy. It may not be able to reproduce last year exactly but I have faith he will be in that range going forward.

    I have always loved him as a real life player. I haven't considered drafting him in fantasy for at least 3 years. He just goes way too high for the insane risk in my book. That goes for risk of injury and poor play. I don't understand how people keep trusting this guy as a top 15-20 pick (or higher) year in year out.
  5. Eric Bledsoe 2018-2019 Fantasy Outlook

    That's total nonsense. I have watched maybe 2/3 of Milwaukee's games. He's just playing his role these days. If he was frustrated he'd be jacking up bad shots and playing outside of the offense. He has been picking his spots and making the correct basketball plays. Hence his super high FG% and low TOs. It's lower volume for sure which is frustrating for fantasy but he's just playing his role on a very good team. He probably could care less about anything but winning games after years of playing for the Phoenix Suns. He'll probably go on a heater soon enough anyway...

    He set his own score up with a 15 yard run. Nothing cheap about that.
  7. Eric Bledsoe 2018-2019 Fantasy Outlook

    He's still getting basically his normal run. He's fine. You can however expect the occasional bad week. That's just how he is.
  8. Well he wasn't really playing all that much until 5 games ago. 2.2 steals and 1.4 blocks over that stretch. Certainly not meh...He needs to be owned if he's playing 25 minutes a night. He's a rare athlete.
  9. He definitely should be owned in all leagues until further notice or until his playing time falls off. He makes some serious "wow" plays.
  10. NBA Trade Season 2018-2019

    Honestly I think they should have been like fine whatever. I think Kelly Oubre is a hell of a lot better than Dillon Brooks. Everything else they were giving was a bunch of nothing.
  11. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope 2018-2019 Outlook

    I really want to grab him. In Houston he'd most undoubtedly average 35 minutes a game.
  12. Victor Oladipo 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    I'd assume it's less than 50. Nowadays there is no telling though.
  13. Luke Kennard 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    I'm not expecting a lot but I could see him being somewhat decent in shallower leagues. I was just kind of surprised he didn't have a thread at all because of the amount of deep leagues people play in around here. Even if it's only points/3s 37 minutes with that usage is pretty damn solid. Pretty good pedigree as well. Thought it was worth bringing up at least.
  14. Couldn't find a thread for this season. 28/8/3 with 5 threes in 37 minutes the other night. Granted, Blake was out. Guard and wing depth in Detroit is super thin at the moment with GR3 and Ish out for weeks. Anybody else keeping an eye on him?
