thoughts on wilson chandler?

ditto, i spent all last season waiting for him to get back from china, scooped him up before he did and thought i hit gold... i did, but it was fools gold... he didnt seem like he got re-adjusted to NBA ball last year and seemed lost.. could he be back now looking to put up the numbers we know he can? looked good tonight

Could this year be golden if we grab him?

another name for thought- chris copeland?

thinking here is if Woodson sees Melo at PF with Cope at SF is a lineup that can produce is there any chance it sticks? Copeland is athletic and can score.. could be very solid theoretically if he was to stick in the lineup with decent minutes.. I could see many 20 pt outings, averaging at around 15-16 PPG.. not too bad

Ben Gordon has been pretty good lately, now I'm thinking of picking him up.

II like Gordon a lot. My league is extremely competitive in percentages and Gordon has become the best of the second-tier/WW scorers in my eyes for not devastating you in the FG%. He's consistent for the 3-ball and gets you some Assists.

IND will only play 3 games next week though.

and he is injured. maybe gerald green if he can't play in the near future. sullinger if he is still available. 4 games

For those of you in H2H leagues:

WAS-4 games

Martell Webster has been steady. Not great but definitely worth an add if you have a spot to burn.

I thought the same thing... but then he has one game this week =/. I'll add him next week hopefully.

like someone mentioned....1 game week, so not worth it....

but, i think he's going to be getting more playing time and has showed he can score the ball....his defense on the other hand....might be what keeps him off the court...

I'm presuming Delfino is owned by now.

Not nearly as much as he should be. Astonishingly still only owned in 10.6% of ESPN standard leagues. He's played very well lately and is worth a pickup in most formats.

doesn't ariza being back hurt his value quite a bit?

he's went from 34 to 26 to 19 minutes in the games since Ariza has got back, steadily declining

While Delfino will have the occasional stinker, he is the best 3-ball guy I've probably ever seen on a WW this late into a season. He's very fit and does not wear down while jacking it up. He can hit them on the road. His role is to shoot the 3 and the Rockets spread the floor and focus on getting him the ball. He's also an excellent passer and picks up decent assists.

Bledsoe, right? 3 more games left in this week.

And if any one dropped Kawhi, last chance for him now.

According to his ranking Kawhi should never be dropped. Unless you're punting cats that he provides (steals/to) he should be picked up ASAP.

Kawhi is one of the most overrated players in fantasy history IMO. It's absurd to suggest that he should "never be dropped".

He's great on steals but he is pretty mediocre or below average in the other volume cats. His percentages are nice but he doesn't shoot enough to make them very impactful.

There are PLENTY of guys who can do much more than Leonard without all the internet fanfare. I love when people on this board refer to Kawhi as "underrated". Lol.

He's one of those rankings anomalies. His perceived value is out of control.

tony allen is more productive than him in recent games :| but i'm keeping faith with him, high rebounds for a guard with some threes and steals with high fg% and ft%. so he is serviceable to say the least.

I don't know what type of league you play but in 9 cat leagues theres a real reason why he's so valuable. You seem to know why he's so good actually. His value comes from 3s percentages and lack of TO while not hurting really hurting you anywhere while doing it (except in cats that are heavily reliant on games played). You pick up a "less" overrated player. What do they do? They kill you in many other cats.

Kawhi Leonard's flaw is that he doesn't score, rebounds or assist enough. That's actually the best place to hurt your team if need be. If you're 1 z-score away in points, you can overcome an average scoring team by like 3-4 games. if you're 1 z-score away in steals? you need like 10. If anything basketballmonster unrates how valuable could he could be. He's been slumping lately but he's still a 4th round guy overall, 6th round for the month an 9th round for 2 weeks. The ratings are fine.

This changes if your league is a pts league or if it's 8 cat with no TO.

JJ Barea could continue to play well off the bench with Rubio's underwhelming play.
