  1. Otto Porter Jr. 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    2nd half of season started really early this year.

    Other than Boogie erry friggin body in my lineup shot worse than my 9 year old girls team. Wall 4-15 Bogdan- 3-10 Oubre- 2- 11 Porter- 2-8 Aminu 2-10 Combined 13 for 54 for a sparkling 24%.
  3. Otto Porter Jr. 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Hope he sits for 2 weeks so I can just play Oubre. Worst trade ever....
  4. Forget the turnovers, my only gripe with Boogie this year has been his subpar FT shooting has cost me that cat a few weeks. He seems to get tired and miss quite a few in 2nd halves. But 93% tonight in double OT to go with the rest of that line. BOOGIE MONSTER!!!!!
  5. 50 plus minutes tonight. 39 plus minutes in at least 8 of the last 12. Gentry is gonna kill him. But what a line.

    Biyombo and Kuzma combine for ZERO FRIGGIN REBOUNDS. I led my league all week in that category, end up finishing 4th, and lose to the guy who had the 3rd most.

    Birch has 7 boards in 16 minutes. Also guarding Horford right now. FML.....
  8. Bismack Biyombo 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    I don't care who he's guarding. He should be able to fall into at least 3 or 4 rebounds on the defensive or offensive end.
  9. Bismack Biyombo 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    ZERO boards in over 20 minutes. WTH. Desperately need some rebounds in my matchup today. Maybe if I talk ish about him again he will come through. Bum....
  10. Otto Porter Jr. 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    I agree with most of this. I will say though that he is most definitely in a shooting slump. His FG % is almost 49% for the year and he was at almost 52% last season. His 3pt % for the season is over 42% for the season and he was over 43% last year. In his last 8 games he is shooting 37% from the field and an abysmal 22% from 3. I've built my team around my 2 keepers, Wall and Boogie so I'm obviously punting turnovers. I planned to punt FG too but despite an overall low % as a team I've found that I can be competitive in that cat and did not want to be at such a disadvantage in 3 cats (TOs, FG, and FT). So I made a move for Porter thinking his efficiency would help while also contributing to 3s and steals where I'm relatively strong. This is my 1st season taking fantasy b-ball seriously so I'm still learning but I think I made a mistake in targeting Porter b/c he doesnt get enough volume to really help my %s, and a lot of his value is tied to his low turnovers, which doesnt really help me when Wall and Boogie can lose that cat for me by themselves any given week. Live and learn but I'm at least hoping Porter's shot can return to form so he can at least help me in 3s and steals. I may try to move him again but, as is being discussed, I don't know how much value I can get in return.
  11. Well, there does seem to be quite a bit of talk on Twitter about something going on with Vuc and Fournier so seems there is more to it than wishful thinking from Mavs fans. Don't like the deal from a Magic standpoint but they do have the worst record in the league right now so maybe they go full tank/rebuild mode. Seems they haven't made the best deals in the past but have new management this year. The more I think about it, the more a trade seems better for Vuc's ROS value. And going to a team like Dallas where Vuc would seemingly be a focal point of the offense may be better than going to a contender that already has players commanding a lot of shots. We'll see but first step is to just get back on the court.

    I traded for him a few weeks ago in a keeper league that involved a future draft pick. What would you considering buying low? What type of players would people offer/accept for him at this point?
  13. Hassan Whiteside 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    I don’t care what arbitrary round value people want to assign him ROS. I just know those blocks are killing me in my matchup and he’s got 2 more games this week. Wonder if the back to back affects him at all? The low minutes could actually work in the favor of those that have him if it helps him not miss games. He’s blocking shots at a ridiculous rate. Not to mention the scoring and boards he’s putting up recently as well.
  14. Rudy Gobert 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Interesting that he’s probable on the first night of a back to back.
  15. I was going to ask what qualifies as “a lot” of talk and, at this point, seems like nothing but some wishful thinking from some Mavs fans.
