  1. I was liking the dbl-dbl until I saw the shot attempts! Looks like he is back to his Brandon Jenning ways again....
  2. If only if FT weren't so poopy, I'd be super happy. But hey, it is what it is.
  3. Unless your league is shallow, 99% of us don't want to risk throwing away silver for gold that may end up being turd coated in golden paint.
  4. Like I said before, Ingles is a very safe conservative player. If shots aren't falling, he won't brick it. He's not doing so hot right now, but he does do other things.
  5. I won't lie that I was very skeptical about his development (I even jokingly called him Brandon Jenning 2.0), but it is encouraging to see that he has been taking better shots (been taking single digit shots when he is below 40% for the past month) and understands his struggles at face value. Still unsexy FG%, but I would take low 40% over 39% any day. Also, my line up is a bit PG heavy, so I don't need great TO numbers.
  6. Even though I always supported Myles Turner, I see him more as a top 40-50 for ROS right now because of his past history of letting us down. Also, any basketball player can have a streaky month. However, there is hope because Myles Turner is making the most of his opportunity and faith the franchise and team has in him.
  7. That's the Myles Turner I drafted! It pays to be patient!
  8. Man, this sucks because I wanted to trade him away, as I wanted more points and less assists, he has lingering injuries...
  9. Pick him up for points, treys, and assists they say. Well, where are they because I'm not seeing any-nay?
  10. No, if anything, Korver might help because the Utah offense needs a boost right now. Also, Joe Ingles has good yet conservative shot selection, which is why his numbers and shots attempted are low at times.
  11. In Ingles's defense, the Jazz offense is pretty underwhelming this season, so you won't be seeing a lot of amazing statlines with him. Also, he tends to be more of a conservative player than someone like THJ, who is more inefficient but scores a lot more points.
  12. https://www.nba.com/pacers/news/turner-hoping-regain-niche-offense-181108 Just a food for thought. So far, he's been killing me badly with his scoring. You can hate on this guy all you want, but I'll stick with him especially when the coach and franchise still have faith in him.
  13. For those worried about rebounds, you know that there are a good amount of players that are rich with good rebound numbers on waivers? Also, I don't know why people are surprised by his numbers. He was never a dominant center. If anything, the only thing people should be disappointed in is his points. He's a capable scorer with a good jump shot especially during his rookie season.
  14. I'm not sure why people are worried about Sabonis and O'Quinn. Sabonis may be solid, but he works better with the second unit especially with the great pick and roll chemistry between him and Tyreke (no team would even dare start him in the first unit). If anything, Sabonis at worst will limit Turner's ceiling, which will make Turner at worst a upper-middle round pick (around 5th-6th round). As for O'Quinn, well, he was more of a role player with above average stats by playing for the depleted Knicks. However, he'll have stiff competition with Sabonis. Also, Turner has much more to offer as a player especially with his shooting ability and range, and Turner does have some defensive skills. When you pick up Myles Turner, you should know what you are getting. I got him at the fourth round for the blocks, relatively safe efficiency (except for foul trouble ofc), and capable scoring. Also, Myles Turner never struck me as a dominant rebounder (he reminded me of Serge Ibaka without the coaches and managers who force him to do everything at once) especially when people took notice of him for his shooting and blocking during his rookie season. If people are worried about rebounding, that's actually a category that is relatively easy to fill up as there are a lot of players below his ADP who are great rebounders. Plus, Myles Turner is a more of a finesse type of center, so you can definitely get creative with him in your line-ups while most of centers are relatively one dimensional like DeAndre Jordan or Dwight Howard. Also, waivers can sometimes have a good amount of rebound specialists, as big men tend to get injured more easily than their smaller counterparts. Also, finally, with his Turner's skill set and his role as the second option for the rising Pacers, Turner has the ideal environment to make a comeback for this season. I cannot say if Turner has the champion's mentality like Oladipo; however, he shows the right attitude that will make him a future star (I mean if you want huge disappointment, then we can talk about Andrew Wiggins all day!). Yeah, he was disappointing last season, but I think there's a very strong chance that he will at least be worth his ADP.
  15. JB is getting his amount of shots (top 3 within his team), so I'd say owners should be patient. Plus, Thibs knows how good and dedicated Butler is when Butler took over for the injured D-Rose. However, you should definitely say good bye to the amount of FT's he will get because he is now the third offensive option in the team. JB used to play a lot of iso, so you can definitely see that Butler is still getting used to the new scheme of sharing the ball with greater talent around him. I can't say if he's worth the second round pick, but he's definitely going to reach his early round potential. Also, it is worth noting that guards, for some odd reason, start slower than the other positions. You can see this trend with Klay Thompson, Dragic during his first year with the Heat, and Beal when he came back from his serious injury. All-in-all, stay patient, everyone!
  16. What happened to him? I didn't get to see the game
  17. Even though I'm a Crabtree owner, I just can't help but feel bad anyone who picked up Cooper. He's extremely talented with his great route running, but I feel that he's just facing a mental block right now especially when he make critical drops on the end zone. However, it's nice to see that he still can make big plays even during his slump. I want to say that I am rooting for you guys, even if it means lowering Crabtree's stock. Hang in there, guys! His playoff schedule looks pretty friendly (Dallas, Phil, and Chargers without Verrett), so I'm pretty sure he's going to win y'all championships.
  18. Will at his worst is Tedd Ginn Jr, who is completely boom or bust. However, at his best, he's like the miniature version of Martavius Bryant. Super speedster who can make big plays but will make bad drops time to time. Also, there is no way that he will absorb Hopkins' target share because Hopkins has a better frame and shows much greater playmaking ability than Fuller would. Usually, people like Will are great if you are against a superior team. Since you might lose against that team by playing conservatively, you might as well go balls to the wall and hit that homerun. He actually helped me beat against a team that had Melvin Gordon, so he's a great FLEX whenever you need to roll the dice. Remember guys, that fantasy is heavily luck based. You might start your luck with someone like Fuller.
  19. I'm actually surprised by how many people wanted to trade him. Yeah, he has been pretty disappointing for a 1 round pick, but just look at his schedule after the BYE week! For those who traded, good luck watching me and other McCoy owners on the sidelines while we start killing it in the playoffs!
  20. Even though it is nice to hear Rodgers say such words, I would take it with a grain of salt. Last year, Packers did not have an consistent running game, despite Rodgers propping up Ty Montgomery who was emerging as a strong favorite with occasional eye popping numbers to replace the injured Eddie Lacy. In the end, the playcalling will be up to McCarthy, not Rodgers. Even though McCarthy is a well established HC, he's at times pretty predictable. I'd argue that he's just somewhat lucky to have Aaron Rodgers for his throwing versatility and Brett Favre throughout his career. But then again, there's only one way to find out whether MB is a buy-low or a bust.
  21. I guess you and Clay are meant to be. Clay has an inconsistent amount of targets and low amount of yards but will get RZ looks, which inflates his value.
  22. I am seriously considering dropping this guy for Charles Clay, which makes absolutely no sense imo. But here are a few things to consider. This season is by far one of the worst seasons for TEs. 1) Olsen is out for a while. 2) Gronk had a huge stinker against Eric Berry. 3) Travis Kelce got 1 target against the Chargers. 4) Jimmy Graham is sinking with the offense. 5) Reed is being his typical injured self. As much as I want Bennett to do better and do believe that he was too overly hyped, you shouldn't get expect too much from TEs this season.
  23. I'm not sure why some people think he's a bust because the production has less to do with Terrelle but more on Cousins. Yeah, Terrelle has been making bad drops, but we know that he can run his routes and catch his balls even when he was with a s---y QB. If you look at Cousin's past regular seasons, he usually starts pretty slow but gets much better. The only reason why I might want to trade Terrelle soon would be his brutal later schedule especially the playoffs (Seattle's Sherman on Week 9, Min's Rhodes on Week 10, Giant's Jenkins on Week 12, Charger's Verrett on Week 14, Cardinal's Peterson who is going to be ready on Week 15, Broncos on Week 16, and Giants again on Week 17 . Kirk, as your average all right borderline QB1, needs a good match-up to do well.
