  1. End of Season Fantasy Awards 2018

    If you play in a roto league Simmons is not ROY over Mitchell in any way, shape or form. Nice popcorn stats but a complete black hole in two categories (3pm, ft%).
  2. End of Season Fantasy Awards 2018

    Ive been playing fantasy basketball since around 1998-1999 and there was never a time that Bynum was a first round pick that I recall. That year that you are referencing he was maybe a second rounder at best. And like someone pointed out, at least you had certainty at some point that he was out for the year. Kawhi literally sucked up a roster spot with his uncertain status up until the final days of the season. Kawhi is the all time biggest fantasy basketball bust, and it’s not even really close. Edit: Just did a quick google search and it looks like Bynums ADP was around 11 that year. So it was technically late first round but Bynum at that time was a well known injury risk so owners somewhat knew what they were getting into if they picked him around that spot.

    I have to say, I specifically did not draft Kawhi this season because of reading through this thread In October and heeding the warnings of posters like @Code of Hammurabi
  4. Kawhi Leonard 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Go back and read the first few pages of this thread. There were plenty of people warning before the draft not to take a risk in Kawhi this year and to take someone like a Lillard, Lebron, etc at #8 instead. Those who “rolled the dice” on Kawhi.... well we all know what happened to them.
  5. H2H is dead with the resting - other options?

    Played both roto and H2H for many many years (started fantasy basketball in 1998). Roto is far superior imo. I quit h2h a few rears ago and never looked back. Now I have to chuckle to myself every season when the end approaches and half of the players in the NBA randomly sit out multiple games in a row. Then these threads inevitably pop up every season.

    5 points on 2–13 shooting last 2 games? Hot garbage.
  7. Seth Curry 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    He must have the same doctors as Kawhi.
  8. Chris Paul 2017-18 Season Outlook

    Looks like CP3 will play this weekend and Harden should get rested so it evens out maybe?
  9. Kawhi Leonard 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    I guess what perplexes me the most is how a player can have his "own" personal medical staff and how it can stand in such stark contrast with the team's doctors. It may happen more regularly than I know about but I don't really recall something like this happening before.
  10. Chris Paul 2017-18 Season Outlook

    TBF they've been extra cautious with CP3 all year long and my gut tells me he'll be out for a few games.
  11. Dwight Howard 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Wow I shortchanged him. He actually put up a 30-30 game.
  12. Dwight Howard 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    30-20 line incoming for this beast.
  13. Taurean Prince 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    yeah...not so much
  14. Kawhi Leonard 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Kawhi, letting his fantasy owners down since October 2017.
  15. Kyle Lowry 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Two monster games in a row.
