  1. I said before the season started that this dude was over-hyped. He's great at stocks...but a big negative everywhere else. You can't play a PF in fantasy whose going to shoot >45% AND grab >6 boards AND get >10 PPG AND make >1 three per game. Dude played 27 games last year and only scored 10+ points 3 times. Only grabbed 6+ rebounds 5 times. I know hes' young but he hasn't ever flashed any kind of offensive ability, even in college where he scored 12 ppg. It also doesn't help that he has 2 veterans playing his position (Simmons and Ross) who are averaging 28 and 22 MPG respectively. He's obviously a hold due to potential, but I think everyone was expecting WAY too many things out of Isaac that he's never shown before (most notably scoring and 3pt shooting)
  2. Joe Ingles 2018-19 Season Outlook

    What is up with these posts in like every thread. Yes, we know he's not going to average 24 PPG and break the NBA record for 3 pointers. Thank you for the hot take.

    Lil Uzi LeVert
  4. Andrew Luck is absolutely killing it
  5. Cedi Osman 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Cedi "John Stockon" Osman with 5 pts / 5 assists in the 1st quarter. I'm watching the game and this kid looks absolutely LEGIT.
  6. Eh, I'm not really seeing it with Lamb. Kemba/Batum are the main ball handlers, he kind of just stands in the corner and waits to get the ball. Gonna drop him for someone more promising unless I see something in the 2nd half.
  7. Bobby Portis 2018-2019Season Outlook

    Dear everyone: We know that Portis' value will take a huge hit when Lauri comes back. You don't need to keep repeating it. Until that happens, he's is going to be a very good fantasy asset for the next 1-2 months. I think a lock for top-80.
  8. Markelle Fultz 2018-19 Season Thread

    If you look at #1 overall picks, there's actually a huge hit rate. From 1979-1999, 18/21 #1 overall picks turned out to be All-Stars. From 1999-2015, 12/17 #1 overall picks turned out to be All-Stars. When you draft #1, you hope for an AD/LBJ/Duncan/Simmons/Iverson/etc. At the very least, you hope for a Wiggins/Bogut/etc.
  9. Markelle Fultz 2018-19 Season Thread

    To date, he's been a bust. That may change, but a #1 pick who refuses to take open jumpers and looks lost out on the court is a bust. Blake Griffin, Embiid, and Simmons also missed their first years. But they came in and played with confidence. Fultz looks completely shell shocked out on the floor. Guys who can play don't need to be coddled like babies. They just ball out. He may put in a nice 12/3/5 season as a 7th man this year, but that's not why you draft a guy #1.
  10. Rajon Rondo 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Rondo is one of those guys who is ignored every season. And every season he puts up something around 9/5/9 with a steal. His FG% is a +, and he doesn't take enough FTs for the percentage to hurt you. Considering dropping Lamb for him..
  11. Spoelstra just put him with 7 minutes left in the 4th against a small-ball lineup w/ Jeff Green at center. Pay attention people. Last year is history
  12. I made the noob mistake of benching our Lord after the 1st game. Please Lord, forgive me for I know not what I do. I shall place thee back into the starting lineup immediately.
  13. Trey Burke 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Trey Bruke #s last year as a starter (9 games): 19/3/8 on 48% FG with 1.4 threes, 1.2 steals, and only 1.9 TOs. Obviously not sustainable over the course of a season (those are essentially CP3 numbers), but I sprinted to add this guy when I realized he was on the waiver wire.
  14. Whiteside met with Pat Reily and Spoelstra this off-season. They had a 4 hour conversation and hashed everything out. Same thing happened with LMA and Pop 2 years ago. They weren't getting along well, so they met in the off-season and had a long meeting where Pop conceded that he wasn't using LMA correctly. All of a sudden LMA becomes way more involved in the offense and becomes a top 15 roto player. I drafted LMA after hearing about the meeting 2 years ago, and did the same with Whiteside after hearing about the meeting this off-season. I'm fairly confident that, barring injury, his minutes will be a lot closer to 29 than they will be to 25.
  15. I have my eye on him but it's his 9th year in the league and he's never averaged over 9 PPG, even when playing 30 minutes per night. He's never been a viable fantasy player and I'd be shocked if he becomes one at 33 years old.
  16. Jeremy Lin 2018-2019 Fantasy Outlook

    He did miss all of last year with a pretty bad injury. They're probably bringing him along slow, a la Gordon Hayward (24 mins). I'll have my eye on this guy, could really use his FTs.
  17. Joe Ingles 2018-19 Season Outlook

    No you can't expect 22/6 with 4 threes and 4 steals ROS. He'll finish around 13/4/5 with 2+ threes and 1ish steal on good percentages. Nothing flashy, but roto gold.
  18. Joe Ingles 2018-19 Season Outlook

    17/1/3 with 3 threes and 3 steals at halftime. Jinglin Joe!
  19. Put up enough bricks to build a chalet in the Swiss Alps. But can't complain about 21/19 with 3 blocks. Animal!!!
  20. Cedi Osman 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    LeBron is the black Cedi Osman
  21. Trey Burke 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    I assumed the low minutes are due to the blowout, can anyone who watched the game confirm/deny?
  22. Trey Burke 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Picked him up at halftime Dude averaged 19/8 as a starter and 16/6 post-ASG last year on 50% FG. I see good things happening this year
  23. Caris LeVert 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    I am so pissed. He was #2 on my must draft list but I spent all my auction money early and had to watch him go to another guy for $6. Im gonna hate this thread this year,..
  24. Cedi Osman 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    I must be getting unlucky. Just tuned back in and in 5 minutes he hasn't touched the ball once. Looks like he just stands in the corner while Clarkson, Hill, or Love handle the ball. He definitely is not the 2nd or 3rd option on offense.
  25. Cedi Osman 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Hows he looking? I turned on the first 5 minutes of the game and only saw him touch the ball twice. Then I turned off the game and he put up 7 points.
