  1. Hamidou Diallo season outlook 18-19

    Nabbed him in my 20-teamer and my body is ready.
  2. I grabbed him at pick 91, and I'm super excited... He looked good in Summer League physically, and I hope he's able to play a bit more of the 3 now that Orlando's likely gonna keep Gordon at the 4. That team is a mess. This dude will hopefully be a stocks monster, with some sprinkling of scoring and rebs My biggest fear is that he turns into Anthony Randolph 2.0... Good to know there's a support group for that in this thread, in case things do go south
  3. Jimmy Butler 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    I don't have a subscription to the Athletic, but according to Shams: https://theathletic.com/580655/2018/10/11/jimmy-butler-return-timberwolves-chaos-tom-thibodeau-trade-request/ I have Jimmy as a keeper and this is just amazing and surreal. I really hope that the Heat are still in play for a trade though.
  4. Jimmy Butler 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Not only that, but seemingly right after his mic drop exit, he gets dressed and does an interview with Rachel Nichols where he basically s--- talks KAT for being soft, and does the whole sorry-not-sorry routine, apologizing for being too honest. I own Jimmy in one league and the entertainment factor alone makes him an interesting player to have.
  5. Punt Assists 2018-2019

    Are you in a head to head or roto league? If playing roto, then there's less point in playing the punt game. If you're playing head to head, your goal is to win against your opponent each week, and it doesn't matter by how much categories you win... could be 5-4 in a 9 category team, but a win is a win. So if you know that the guys you have drafted in the first couple rounds are not strong in specific categories, then you decide to ignore those categories and build your team to make your core guys' strengths stronger. For example: If you're picking 9th in 14 teams, and manage to get Paul George + Jimmy Butler in your draft, then maybe you decide to punt assists since they're not elite at assists. If you ignore trying to build your assists, then you will lose the assist category every week. But hopefully the guys you pick up instead can help you win the other categories that PG13 and Jimmy are good at, like points, steals, rebs, FT... and at least one of either TOs, 3's, rebs and blocks.
  6. Punt Threes 2018-2019

    I guess AD + Jimmy is the duo to go for punt 3s really... no other combination of stars in the top 2 rounds would really warrant a punt 3 build. Interesting that you mention punt FT but tbh your build isn't really that weak on FT... and there are some punt 3 type guys who would help boost FT like DeMar and LMA in mid rounds too... alongside guys like Rubio and some good FT shooting bigs like Kanter, JV, etc..
  7. Punt Assists 2018-2019

    For a 20 team H2H, I'd say that looks like a decent punt assists, soft punt FT team... Kat without Jimmy will be a beast. Where did guys like Vuch and JV land? I assume they were gone before you grabbed DJ? I'm on board on Kanter this year, but I guess with Dallas' team, DJ can be a low risk, high reward kind of pick, especially if he somehow finds a way to block shots again. Grabbing Josh Richardson over 100 in a large league is a steal IMO... I'm in a 20 team H2H and I'll be targeting Miles Bridges too. I think Kevon will be fine while Boogie is out... out of that list, I'd probably keep an eye on Zack Collins to see how the frontcourt of Portland pans out, since skill-wise, he's probably better than guys like Swanigan and Meyers Leonard.
  8. Punt Assists 2018-2019

    15 category league?!?
  9. Punt Assists 2018-2019

    I'd take Butler over Love in that scenario personally... They're both injury prone, but Butler on a contract year will have something to prove, and he'll generally give more well-rounded stats anyway. For your 3rd, I like Khris Middleton for the same reason I prefer Butler, although I can't fault taking Devin Booker if you think scoring will be hard to come by. Plus he gives you PG eligibility at least, which is huge in a punt assist build, but be ready to not have him for a couple weeks to start as he recovers from surgery.
  10. Kawhi Leonard 2018-19 Season Thread

    If that's the case, then most of Toronto's fanbase is crazy too (except for the diehard DeMar stans). Dude is gonna rule the east.
  11. I'm targetting him if I end up with a punt assist build, but I'm unsure of his value... Is 7th too early in a standard 12 team h2h league?
  12. Punt Assists 2018-2019

    Has anyone successfully done a punt assists and blocks build? I know it's kind of counter-intuitive since it's punting a big and small stat together, but I was considering on focusing on efficiency bigs who won't hurt my FT% as well as guards who produce big stats. Thoughts? Any potential pitfalls?
  13. Punt Assists 2018-2019

    Sorry my bad, my league is a 2 team keeper and I'm targetting him 3rd round, which translates to 5th I guess in a real draft. I sometimes forget to translate it back to 'real' draft
  14. Jimmy Butler 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    As a Raptors fan, I'm kind of glad that Jimmy waited this long to let his intentions be known to the organization. Had he demanded a trade a few months ago, who knows... we might have seen Kawhi get traded for Jimmy instead of DeMar...
  15. Punt Assists 2018-2019

    I was just thinking about Drummond, and kind of surprised that nobody has mentioned him much on here considering his great steals production for a bigman combined with his elite rebounding numbers, and still gives around 1.5 block per game. Plus the dude is durable. Let's put aside the talk about him shooting 3's for now til we see it on court, but is he being overlooked because of where he gets picked in drafts, compared to a big like Capela in the 3rd?
