  1. The Wizards are a bad franchise but this is silly. It’s not the team’s fault every time he has a bad game. He’s been playing consistently in the high 30s for minutes. This was the 2nd night of a b2b and blowout WIN so it makes perfect sense that he did not close out the game. The rotoworld blurb and the response to it are just lazy writing. Sato provides good value as a waiver pick up but he’s not a consistent stud (better than Wall 😂) that some think/want him to be. Enjoy the good games and rely on the rest of your team when he has his share of duds.
  2. Cant buy a bucket tonight. Every time someone suggests he's better than Wall he has a stinker. Obviously no causation but how bout we just stop that... Very different fantasy profiles.
  3. Boogie took a hard and awkward fall after being grabbed from behind by Myles Turner and having another guy bang his leg on what was ultimately ruled a flagrant 1. Good news is after staying down for a while he got up, knocked down 2 FTs, and remained in the game. Overall a good sign tho he should have given the ball up on the break for an easy layup.
  4. So AD is not quite as good as Lebron (arguably and IMO the 2nd greatest player of all time) = he's overrated. Got it. The internet.....
  5. 1. From a fantasy standpoint its immaterial whether or not his teams make the playoffs so I don't think it matters if he's overrated in real life. Fantasy wise I don't see any argument for him being overrated 2. I would also argue he's NOT overrated in real life. He's played his entire career in a loaded Western conference and on teams that have significant holes. Has he ever played with a quality wing player? So I'm not going to put not making the playoffs on him being overrated.
  6. I’m streaming him tonight for the hell of it and in a long shot attempt to win 3s. I remember watching Furgeson play internationally for USA basketball 17U several years ago and came away thinking he was the best player on the floor. He had NCAA eligibility issues, as I understand it, from playing at Deion Sanders Prime Academy in Texas, which is why he went to Australia for a year. Anyways, he definitely has talent and he seems to get a lot of open looks since defenses are obviously focusing on Westbrook, PG13, and Adams. If he continues to make shots he could carve out some deep league value since the minutes seem to be there. If not, on to the next one.
  7. Fouled out but I don't think we could have asked for better in 15 minutes. As someone who watched him all last year, I thought he moved really well and overall looked good. Its obviously still a huge concern coming back from an achilles at his size but I've always thought a potential positive was that Boogie never had tremendous athleticism in terms of explosiveness or suddeness. He's just extremely skilled and pretty agile and fluid for a guy his size. So the injury may not affect his game the way it would someone who relies more on raw explosiveness. There will be nights where he probably just doesnt have it physically but I'm excited about his fantasy contributions going forward.
  8. Its definitely wishful thinking to focus entirely on the positives of playing in the GSW offense when the reality is that the negatives (coming back from achilles tear, not having played in a real game for a year, and significantly reduced minutes and usage) far outweigh the positives from a fantasy production standpoint. The volume simply will not be there for him to put up the Boogie monster numbers of years past with GSW this season. And he will have fewer overall turnovers b/c of the reduced minutes and usage but it remains to be seen if he will be overall more efficient. Again, he's coming back from a major injury and integrating into a new offense that features 3 other players who get a lot of shots and usage. I could easily see his efficiency being the same or worse with %s. I hear ya on playing with additional space and less attention from defenses but this is obviously not a situation where pre-achilles Boogie just signed with GSW and is ready to roll after a full healthy off and pre-season. Its gonna be a lesser Boogie physically (at least this 1st year back and perhaps for his career) AND he will have significantly less usage. Don't see how that's a recipe for "better than ever" from a real life or fantasy perspective. I think that entirely depends on roster options and league size/settings, etc. I dropped a player to stream earlier this week, which opened up a spot in my lineup Friday. So he's in my lineup. If I had other options, I'd likely wait a game or 2 before slotting him in over even end of bench type guys. Having said all of the above, I'm still all in on Boogie for this season as I kept him from last season and am rooting for him on a fantasy and personal level. But my expectations are pretty low, so I will have fun watching this either way.
  9. How could he not? Well, his minutes and usage will be significantly down from any point in his career and he will be the 4th option joining a core group that has already won 3 championships without him. Plus there's the whole big man coming back from one of the most devastating injuries in the sport thing. But yeah, how could he not comeback better than before...
  10. Agreed. I'm in a limited keeper league and drafted KP entirely as an asset for next year either to keep or trade. Anything he does this year would be icing. The fact that he won't even be re-evaluated until mid February, at least as I understand it, means that he is likely to have little to no fantasy relevance this year in my view. ETA- I also have two IL spots which made drafting him a priority for me.
  11. During tonight’s broadcast Reggie Miller said Boogie would be back in 3 weeks without any further context. No idea what he’s basing that on but seems like as good a guess as any and puts him right at about a year since the injury.
  12. Reverse jinks works after seeing peeps go overboard. Seriously tho. 20 and 10 on 9/11 and 2/3 from FT. No turnovers and a block. I’ll take it. Lmao
  13. Boban has matched up really well against Nuggets. Might affect Trez’ minutes today.
  14. I don't think Dipo's presence hurts him. If anything it creates better looks for Bojan. I havent looked at usage rate numbers but I'd be surprised if its significantly different with or without Dipo being active. Bojan is not a sexy name to roster but he's one of the better value sources of pts and 3s with good efficiency IMO. He's shooting a career best 51% from the field and a pretty absurd 48% from 3 on the season. Those numbers are gonna regress but I would definitely think he's worth a roster spot in all but the shallowest of leagues. I'm talking only in terms of 9 cat. This guy has been pretty consistent and defintely worth a look in any league where he is available while he's still shooting it so well. Don't imagine there are many guys available for free who give you 2 3s, 16 pts, and high 40s to 50% FG,.
