Exactly what hype are you talking about? Less than half a page of posts about a player coming back from injury?  

 

I'm talking about the urge for some to pick him up already, the other 12 pages & his ranking on BBM & Yahoo

He isn't for every one, especially for people chasing points. 

However, he contributed nightly with solid production in every cats (except FT this year I guess). He flies under the radar.

I'm getting mixed signals. Is he due back?  I see it was a 2-4 week time table, 2 weeks ago.  I cant afford to stash an injured player for long but if hes going to see the court soo , he fits my team well

What mixed signals?  They said 2-4 weeks and he's practicing now and we're within the 2-4 week period.

So this guy is sitting on my wire in a 10-team league.  He was given the questionable tag for tomorrow which signals he's close.  Kyle owners, would you stress and/or recommend a pick-up?  I haven't followed him much, although it seemed like he was picking it up quite a bit over the last month or so.

He can be a difference maker in steals and blocks and he’s a slight positive in fg%, rebs and dimes. He has a large negative impact in points and and a slight negative in Ft%. His role is secure and he has a chance to increase the counting stats considerably if/when Conley and Gasol get traded or shut down in the coming weeks. If that fits your team build then go for it.

He's still IL eligible so I stashed him there and letting the chips fall, play out, basically scooped him as a tryout against my second tier guys like Elf, or products of a Davis trade like Jah, or maybe Zizic, for refererence, but at this point I'd rather own all three of those guys over Slo-Mo...however, Slo-Mo can fill it up, albeit at a slow pace, and he's a lil' inj prone, but dude was having the best stretch run of his career before going down...also a lotta moving parts in Memphis potentially coming soon, so he may find himself in a leadership role...I'm not concerned with Holiday...Slo-Mo is Memphis' guy and I believe he can be a productive member of anyone's team especially if he is your 13-15th guy...I am in a points league, but in a cats league he contributes everywhere as well.

Why do you say he is injury prone? He's played in at least 72 games past 3 seasons . I just dropped Favors to pick him up. A little less blocks and rebounds, but better stocks and a sprinkle of ASTs is perfect as the last player in a standard h2h

Like i said "a lil'" he misses games and I wouldn't hold him if he does on the IL again this year...its the reason I own him now! lol

I did that myself yesterday. But I am punting point after I lose Capela and Dipo.

If you really need points, I guess Evans is still worth a gamble.

It would have to be Batum or Millsap.  But I feel more patient with Millsap and less so with Batum (for obvious reasons not worth delving into).

difference maker is a bit too much ...  Mitchell Robinson is a difference maker in Blocks maybe. Tyus Jones or De"Anthony Melton would be difference maker in steals if they would get +30 minutes a night...

Slo-mo is going to beast it. No question. He was already starting to put some nice numbers before his injury. Short term Garret Temple is out 1-2 weeks. And outside of maybe Justin holiday, the wings on Memphis are terrible. Slight usage bump and plenty of minutes, he got 30 today already, first game back from an ankle sprain. And the best part is long term, if one or both of Conley / Gasol gets traded or shut down. Kyle Anderson is going to absolutley tear it up. Run if hes on your waiver, or buy low if you can , while you still can.

I don't disagree with these points but I decided not to touch him just because of the putrid playoff schedule in my league (3-2-3).

This was the reason I almost didn't pick him up.  But if he turns out to churn out nice, consistent value, he could be a fantastic trade chip to anyone who may be more-or-less oblivious to the playoff schedule (maybe for someone like Derrick White?).  Also worth noting, in my league, the playoffs are weeks 22, 23, 24, which puts Slo-Mo at 2-3-4.  Still not great, but I've made a point to ensure I have a reasonable amount of 4-game weeks on the 22nd.  Either way, I think he should be picked up considering his rising value.  And shoot, I'm not even a lock for the playoffs yet!  So I guess that's another reason to add anyone in the interim who you think can get you there, Slo-Mo being a fine example.

He’s seeing a specialist now for the shoulder. Never a good sign. I was holding in hopes Conley and Gasol were moved but instead I’m pretty sure I’m dropping him for another deadline stash.

Don't want to drop him. :unsure:  He is a hidden fantasy star just like Grant or Bridges in specific builds.
