  1. Watching him closely because this is another opportunity to find a gem. New coach means new motivation to prove yourself. I'm a Love owner so Dekker is a possibility.
  2. I have to agree. I expected a bit more from what I've seen so far from Simmons. As for the off season, work on your damn weaknesses! Improve your game and it will also reflect on the teams overall play as well. Don't get me wrong, he is a beast but if he could of added a more confident mid range game along with a 3 pointer stroke, man, skies the damn limit for Simmons!
  3. This guy just spaces out the floor and passes like a damn point guard for his size. Craft motha@$!#%! So far, he's hitting the 3 at a high clip (don't know if that's sustainable throughout the entire season), he can rebound and gives you the odd stocks too. Guess all it took was an "opportunity" and Vlade signed this guy for 3 years and he's contributing to a successful Kings squad (so far). I understand the hype that is Bagley but from a coach perspective, he sees there is great chemistry with this current starting 5, the game has changed to a transition/3 pointer type flow, Bjelica hitting the 3 is spacing out the floor tremendously and opening up for easy baskets, etc. Finding waiver wire gems is a hit and miss but sometimes you just have to go with your gut, keep trying and you'll eventually find one. Here's hoping this Bjelica train keeps on rolling.
  4. Lucky to grab him off the FA wire early this week (especially after losing Dunn) after a GM dropped him during the days Burke was starting. So far and by the looks/feel of it, Frank is your starting PG going forward. Let's hope the confidence continues to grow but I definitely liked what I saw from him the past 2 games and coach does too. I was definitely one of those GMs who had Frank on the watch list but didn't have the confidence in him because there was no talk about his improvements nor did I see anything in preseason that would change my mind. I'm hoping he continues to get a sizable amount of minutes, produces and gives his fantasy owners the "It's happening!" feeling.
  5. Exactly why I picked him up in both leagues. Outstanding Bjelica!
  6. Can't believe I was able to secure TREZL in my 20 team league (off the wire)! Thank goodness! Gortat is done like my medium well done prime rib.
  7. Man, he just spreads the floor with the sniping 3PT shot and obviously coach trusts him. He's looking like what Saric was for me last year. I just had to add him in both my competitive leagues.
  8. Just another productive line and we're still in the 3rd quarter - 3-3PTS 15PTS 6REB 2AST
  9. Damn bro! I feel your pain but keep an eye out for lineup changes and see if these new starters are available on your FA/waiver wire! It's early in the year so you need to make some moves.
  10. Watch for changes to Knicks and Hornets lineups in the very near future! A possible replacement could be had from one of these teams off the FA wire.
  11. I'm in the same boat, Cousins currently stashed in my IR slot and I have Portis. I'm going forward with replacing Portis from the FA wire in my league. Not only that, I also have Kris Dunn injured too!
  12. Man, I just lost Portis but pending knee scan. I am contemplating picking him up from my FA wire after a nice line tonight and the Kings won.
  13. Exactly why I drafted him because this OFFENSE is insane! I hope he continues to thrive.
  14. Harrell's situation appears to be on the better path (IMO). Len, is definitely someone to keep an eye on but there are obvious question marks with the return of Dedmon (returning tomorrow) and consistency. Len looks like he wants to hold onto that starting spot but time will definitely tell. If he falters, Dedmon will be back to being a starter like he was last year.
  15. Man, I'm ALL IN with Harrell this year. Whatever he did in the off season and the way the game has changed to a fast pace/transition game, you just can't help but like what you see going forward. The ingredients are there for him to take all those PF/C minutes from Gortat and Boba. The 9 total blocks so far this year is a surprise but so far, he's definitely an asset on my roster. I dropped Lamb for him and held on to Josh Jackson (will be patient with JJ).
  16. He's definitely worth a flier but the question remains his role and minutes once Dedmon and Collins comes back. Dedmon was supposed to be the starting center for the Hawks but it's possible Len has earned the right to keep his starting gig if he puts a streak together with some decent to amazing stats. If that's the case, he'll fly off the FA wire in many deep leagues. I know I'll be watching.
  17. Great line! If he give consistent lines like this, my GOODNESS! He kind of let me down this week but here's to the future BazeGod!
  18. I am one lucky dude to pull off a trade for Trae just before the fantasy season started. I was concerned about the talk about this FG% and whether or not he could produce consistently but after watching tonight's game, I'm convinced I ended up on the winning side. I am a happy owner.
  19. No thread? Well, there is now! Here's your starting SG for the Grizzlies with an opportunity to produce given the minutes. The first 2 games of the season caught my attention and there's no denying it you're in a deep league this type of output would be a definite plus. He kind of reminds me of Kent Bazemore (Hawks) with the ability to hit the 3 and provide those rare stocks. In the past, he's always been the vet off the bench but this year is different now that he's starting. If you have a bench fodder you are comfortable dropping, you can't go wrong with Temple (take a chance and see).
  20. His confidence is much much higher in his sophmore year! I drafted knowing he worked on his craft, coach tagged him as the franchise guy and he would get all the minutes he can handle. Great game to kick off the season! It looks like both Fox and WCW are the ones to own with Hield knocking on the door as well.
