  1. Justice Winslow 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    I have been really impressed with how Winslow has evolved and how well he is thriving as a ball handler. But I am not so sure of him being good regardless of Dragic. Unless they make a trade. Once Dragic is back, he will go back to starting at point and being the primary ball handler. At that point, Waiters will be playing more. And they will just have too many guys. Too many guys that like to handle the ball. Too many mouths to feed. They have 13 guys on their team that legitimately can make a case in being in the rotation. Ellington is out of the rotation now and Jones will probably join him unfortunately once Dragic is back. But otherwise, their other guys are playing and less opportunities will be there for Winslow. Just think about how many guys they have on their team that they use as ball handlers - Dragic, both Johnsons, Winslow, Wade, Waiters, Richardson (although he is better suited to be off ball). I hope I am wrong because like I said, Winslow has improved and it is nice to see.
  2. Demarcus Cousins 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    It is going to be real interesting to see how this plays out. I did not scoop him up, but I am definitely rooting for him. Even though Dominique is really the only guy that didn't diminish greatly the first year after the achilles tear, I think Boogie will be useful. Of course he won't be 100%. He may never be. Of course he won't play any back to backs this year. Anyone expecting him to be what he was will be sadly disappointed. But he has a chance to make some noise towards the end of the year, so if you have someone that is not useful to drop, why not take the risk? Plus fantasy is supposed to be fun. It is going to be fun to have him on your team and see how he does. He will be the 4th scoring option on offense. No pressure to be the man or to be what he was. They don't need that from him. All he needs to do is rebound and give them the spacing that they have never had from all of their other centers (beyond when they play Draymond at center). He is going to get those easy baskets their other centers would get at times. On the block, even diminished he is better than any other center they had on post ups. He was not always an efficient player and this injury doesn't help with that, but I think he has a chance to actually be more efficient because he is playing with 4 other all-stars (something he never had) and defensive attention will not be all on him. I think expecting him to be what Elton Brand or Rudy Gay became their first year after is a fair comparison. That would be my expectations for him this year.
  3. Most / Least Favorite Fantasy Players To Own?

    You're not happy with Turner now? 15.7 ppg, 9.4 rpg, 1.2 threes, and 3.2 bpg in the month of December just not that fun to have huh?
  4. John Collins 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Ok I know he has not been providing the same amount of stocks as he did last year. But for those complaining what would y'all rather have? Him giving you like 12 and 8 with a little more stocks than last year, or THIS: in the month of December, he was at 21.3 ppg, 12.9 rpg, 0.8 threes on 57% shooting. This dude is a monster. Honestly, who realistically thought he was going to give you 21 and 12 this year? I know I was very high on him and had him pegged as making a leap (I believe I mentioned him a Breakout thread on here). But I did not think he was going to do THIS good offensively this year and this consistent with it. And he is so comfortable shooting that corner three too - I watched the Hawks/Wiz game last night. I do believe the stocks will pick up to what he brought last year or a little less. And that should have been the expectation all along. But for now, just enjoy him for what he is bringing and not some unrealistic expectations of him that he is not living up to.
  5. Joe Ingles 2018-19 Season Outlook

    Yes he has been inconsistent this year with his shot. But overall he is basically providing a lot of the same value he did last year just with a worse FG%. Essentially the same points (on one more FG attempt), same assists, about half a three less, half a steal more (which has been very helpful), and half a rebound less. He had 3 scoring duds in a row now - but 4 good games preceded those duds. In December he was 11ppg, 5asp, 1.5spg, 1.9 threes. Make another three a game and it is essentially what anyone should've expected from him. And for me, that is what I drafted him for. The combination of assists, steals, and threes is why he is valuable and cannot really be replicated from many on the WW at this point, so I see no reason in dropping him. This is a dude that shot 44% from three for two years in a row and this year he is at 37%. Might not get to 44%, but I imagine he starts to get hot for a longer period of time very soon.
  6. Kris Dunn 2018-2019 Season Thread

    Last six games: 16.3 points, 6.1 rebounds, 6.1 assists, 1.6 steals, 51.1% FG%. And he is capable of more steals and blocks (only 1 block in those 6). He was not a great three point shooter in college, was not in his first two seasons in the pros, and he wasn't going to magically turn into one. But do you know where he was elite in both college and now the pros - steals! Top 6 in steals per game last year. I am sure he is going to start making more threes similar to last year or a little less. But If anyone drafted him to be a splash brother, than sorry your expectations were off. And for those complaining - Can you find someone else on the WW that can replicate those stats in the past 6 games? Or replicate what he did last season?
  7. Elfrid Payton 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    He has had stretches throughout his career when a coach does not mess around with his minutes where he can give you 13-15ppg, 6-7reb, 7-8assts, 1-1.5steals with a good FG% (FT% not so hot and doesn't shoot a lot of threes though). And Gentry seems to believe in him. So yeah, that is where the hype is coming from.

  9. Eric Bledsoe 2018-2019 Fantasy Outlook

    This. I haven't watched 2/3 of their games, but I have watched enough to totally agree that he his playing the role Bud wants him to play and does not look upset about it. I am ok with the lower volume of shots if the FG% remains high. Assists were what I expected. My only complaint the whole season has been the steals being lower, but that is due to the defense Bud is having them play. Also, being in a contract year, if he truly was upset about how he is being used, I am sure we would somehow have heard about it either from him directly or from the magical "sources."
  10. Klay Thompson 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Won? He said Klay was a poor man's Buddy Hield, Klay won't average 20 PPG and Buddy will have better peripheral stats. He also implied that Durant had been having a negative effect on Klay. Those were the comments of his I focused on. All of these were proven incorrect at the time. Fast forward to now - still incorrect. Even with Klay in the worst prolonged slump of his career, he is still averaging 20.9 PPG (more than Buddy) with 1.2 steals (0.5 steals for Buddy) and 0.7 blocks (0.4 blocks for Buddy). For me, I never said Buddy sucks or called the dude a fool. I just pointed out the facts between the two and they still remain true. Safe for him to come out of the woodwork now while Klay is slumping hard. But facts are facts. Buddy is having his best year, but he still isn't better than Klay - slumping version and normal version.
  11. D’angelo Russell 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    I am a fan of both Dinwiddie and Russell, and I have them both. For me, it is difficult for me to say who is better right now. It is close. They are both talented. Both still have room to grow. I don't think we have seen the best from either of them. Dinwiddie is a more consistent shooter right now and less turnover prone, but Russell has better vision/better pure passer. That consistency makes Dinwiddie the better player now by a small margin I suppose. But I think for me I give the edge to Russell in upside not just because of the age difference (22 versus 25 - small but makes a difference), but the fact that if/when Russell can become more consistent with his shot, and cut out the dumb passes, he will become a better scorer and player overall than Dinwiddie. And for people that are questioning the Nets commitment to Russell given that they signed Dinwiddie to an extension and not Russell yet: Since Russell is a restricted free agent, they are waiting to see what kind of offers Russell gets first on the open market and then will decide if they want to match it. It does not mean they are not going to match (unless it is a max deal which seems unlikely) or that they are not committed to him. It is a wait and see approach. Similar to what the Jazz did back with Hayward the first time he was a free agent and the Hornets signed him to an offer sheet (which the Jazz matched). Imo I think they like all three of their young studs (LeVert, Dinwiddie, and Russell) and think of them as cornerstones of the franchise moving forward or at the very least trade chips (Russell and Dinwiddie) for a superstar if needed. Throwing LeVert into this conversation, he is the best of the three for right now and the future. He has the most upside I feel.
  12. Nikola Mirotic 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Niko was getting shots up last week. So with that and the news that he is going to be evaluated in a few days, I would be surprised if he wasn't back next week.

    It’s a compilation of quotes. Same person didn’t say both.
