  1. Who would you rather own in a 5x5 Dynasty league and why? Andrelton Simmons (Age: 28yrs): Seemed to breakout last year. So far, he's been hitting well, showing good patience. His pop and speed are still question marks. But I think he's probably a good bet for at least 12-15HR's and 12-15SB's over a full season. With a ceiling potential of 20/20 in his best year. In what seems to be a great offense. or Addison Russell (Age: 24yrs): Has one good year under his belt, but that may have been a result of being on an elite offense. Still can't hit for average better than .250. Hasn't shown the 20sb speed potential he showed in the minors. But he's 4 years younger. His potential is probably something like 25-30HR and 15-20SB in his best years. But huge question mark if he could ever get anywhere close to that, and with an average that's serviceable (.250+).
  2. Andrew Heaney 2018 Outlook

    Heaney is the absolute worst. Good thing Tropeano is showing signs of life; pretty much guaranteed a spot in the 6-man rotation now.
  3. Team 2
  4. Interested. Sent you a PM.
  5. interested in this team:
  7. Need 2 in a keeper league

    I will take Juicers
  8. Brook Lopez 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Luke Walton is basically a clone of Kenny Atkinson. They both have 80 man rotations, where each player gets a maximum of 20-29 mpg, with multiple positions up to the "hot hand". Lopez will likely get dealt near the trade deadline to a contender for a draft pick. p.s. I hate Walton's rotations.
  9. Kyle Kuzma 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Kuzma's production lately will force Walton to give him playing time, which can really only come at the expense of both Ingram and/or Randle. Which is sort of a downer for Ingram, as I was hoping he'd get 32-33mpg this year. But with Kuzma playing so well, it looks like Ingram might get capped at 29mpg. The good thing is Kuzma is, so far at least, showing to be pretty efficient. So, if he got in the neighborhood of 25mpg, he might still be pretty ownable. I'm thinking...12pts/5rbs/1.8 threes/1.0 stl/.4 blk with solid percentages and low to's.
  10. Brandon Ingram 2017-18 Outlook

    Ingram doesn't pass the eye test at all. He has no fluidity to his game. No moves. Very awkward, rigid, and forceful. Watching him attempt a turnaround fadeaway is cringy; he gets zero separation. Watching him drive to the hoop is so predictable and he's constantly running into his man, instead of blowing by them. If you compare Ingram's game to someone like Jayson Tatum, it's like night and day. Tatum passes the eye test. I feel very confident that Tatum will one day be a solid 18+ ppg scorer; the only question being how well he does on defense. I've been targeting Ingram like crazy in all of my drafts so far (especially in dynasty/keeper leagues), but i'm pretty worried as of today. I think we might need to wait yet another year for him to develop. At best, Ingram's ceiling appears to be prime-Rudy Gay. But right now, I'm hoping for an extremely poor man's version of otto porter.
  11. Just drafted. Please rate my team. WHIR

    I think Turner as well as Cauley-Stein could realistically average 10 rbs. So you might not be punting rebounds after all. I think the team is extremely balanced. With lots of guards who shoot a high FG%. Very solid draft. Help?
  12. This was a pretty even trade. Cousins, while I hate his personality, is an established 1st round player. While Turner is expected to take a leap, but to what level? I'm not sure Turner can average 20pts and/or 10rbs. Brogdon is undervalued, but i think everyone is expecting him to repeat his elite FG%. I think he goes down to around 44-45%. Ross is a FG% killer; so he's really only solid if that's your team build (to punt FG%). Beverly should be able to average around 12pts with 2 threes and 1.5 stls. Porter will put up the same stats but with better %'s. I'd pick the Cousins side, but only by a hair. Help?
