    BBM has him at 181 so that would indicate no, although I can think of some team builds where he might be worth rostering as the worst guy on your bench. Since the season began there were at least one dozen better players than him that came off the wire, but now? Idk. Who is really better than him who is on the ww in 12 teamers? Patty Mills, Garrett Temple, Omari Spellman? It will be team specific.

    Ranked 55 by BBM and 19 if you're punting FT%. If you can negate his negative FT impact I'd rank him top 50 for sure, even if you're not punting FT%. Considering he's never been valued as a top 50 guy during draft day, yeah I'd certainly say underrated.
  3. Dwight Howard 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    You're really not supposed to post from the A/C here but Harris has been struggling recently. Howard/Schroder barely have any value over ww players. Meanwhile, Middleton is a top 25 guy and Jval is a top 50 guy. Middleton clearly > Harris and Jval clearly > Howard so I think it's a slam dunk no brainer.
  4. Dwight Howard 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    I had him in two leagues, one is punt FT% where I got him for a my last $3 in an auction. The other I traded him away for Ariza. Ariza sucks this year and I don't foresee it improving any time soon. With his age steals are down and down due to wing depth in Phoenix idk how his pt/usage can go up. So at this point I'd consider Ariza a borderline ww player, but as you stated I couldn't keep Howard on my squad.
  5. Lonzo Ball 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    I traded him for McGruder, not proud of it, but meh. I received the offer and Lonzo was sitting on my bench (roto league). Lonzo has more upside but if I'm not rostering him atm and I would roster McGruder as my 10th best player then I think I have to do it as McGruder is better than Ilyasova who was my 10th previously. I only paid $4 for Lonzo in auction so I wasn't attached. This was the only league I had Lonzo in so I suppose I'm done with him for better or worse.
  6. Dwight Howard 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Howard barely has any value over a replacement player on the WW. 13/9 with a combined 1.5 stocks on 60%+ FG is really solid if you’re punting FT. He’s committing fewer TO this year because he’s not getting the touches but his counting stats are also down. Clearly he’s not contributing much in the way of assists or threes. So he’s basically a one cat guy, maybe two if you count stocks, who contributed positively in FG but crushes you in FT. He’s barely inside the top 150 according to BBM and even if you punt FT he’s just 72nd. So my advice is to keep him if you’re punting FT bc you’re not getting equivalent value back. If you’re not punting FT then I’d try to trade him to someone who is punting for any player of any value above the replacement ww player.

    All I can say is that sometimes you make good decisions in hindsight and sometimes you make bad decisions. All you can hope for is to make more good decisions than your opponents. I play in about 12 large buy-in leagues per year and I’ve already made some absolutely ****ful decisions but I’ve made some really good ones as well and I’m doing quite well thus far. If you just focus on your bad decisions you’ll be depressed af. Much better to be happy about your good decisions and forget the bad. Good luck!

    Even given those settings LaVert is better. You should check it out at fantasy basketball ninja. Has more league settings in its player ranking than BBM for free.

    If you go by metrics LouWill is barely rosterable in 10 team leagues and LeVert is good. But I suppose it depends on team needs etc.

    It’s a dick measuring contest. If your league isn’t “competitive” then that means the other person is better than you at fantasy and real life probably too . I personally don’t want to play in competitive leagues. If I had my preference I’d rather play in high buy-in leagues with absolutely ****ful owners.

    Out of curiosity when you say Howard are you referring to Dwight Howard? Also, is this a points league?
  12. TJ Warren 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Yes. I don’t think 20/5 is a fluke as he did that last year. Everyone expected regression as the forward position is fairly crowded in Phoenix but it’s Ariza who regressed which frankly isn’t surprising. His effieciency is exemplary: 47/91/1.2 TO. The only thing that isn’t sustainable is the FT as he only shot 76% last season and better than 90% is difficult to maintain, although I think he can manage 85%+ ros. The difference between this season and last is he’s averaging almost two threes per game. So you’re looking at a potential 20/5/2/1/1 player who could exceed the mean in every efficiency cat. That would put him as better than top 50, more like top 30. Eg. Gallo has finished 44th with a similar line, except for worse FG, better FT impact, fewer stocks. So I really think he can be top 50, or even better ros.

    So glad I traded him away in one of my 8 cat leagues but he’s been an oddly decent fit in one of my 9 cat leagues. Look on the bright side: 2 threes and 1 block today. 4 assists to 0 TO means an infinite A/To ratio!
  14. Danny Green 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    He’s always been like this. When all of his value is tied to stocks and threes sometimes he has insane lines but when he’s not getting defensive stats and he’s not hitting threes RIP...
  15. Jeff Teague 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Me too. If I knew he was going to play for sure I would have activated him but as I didn’t know until today too bad so sad.
