It seems like such an insane idea that you pigeon hole yourself into a specific punt build based on your first pick. In the case of Dame, he gives you elite points, FT%. In your 3% Dame is just decent. I don't play that league setting, but his high volume in 3's might not be awesome. Going to defer to you on what the overall target 3% is and then you decide how good Dame is at that cat. 


Dame gives you a base in boards, assists. Not amazing, but contributes fine for a guard. His steals are not close to elite. Blocks are whatever and will be dictated by your bigs selections. And his FG% isn't good. 

 

So my advice to you if you want to punt is to be open minded about what falls to you in the second. If you don't get a good source of steals, start down that path. Or start down the path of punt FG% if that value presents itself. Basically, wherever the value presents itself to punt a category Dame isn't strong in then start down that route. But, rebounds isn't the first thing that comes to mind to punt with Dame. Just going quick on BBM, Dame was 20 out of guards in boards. I would call that a categorical advantage and not a "punt". 

Totally agree. Don't punt based n your first or even second pick just cause they don't contribute greatly. You punt if someone is gonna be a negative effect, not because they are not a positive effect.

Yep he tends to get it going more and more as the game goes on. Its rare he doesn't go on a hot streak at some stage even if he starts off cold shooting the ball.

Exactly. The only thing that's annoying tonight is the the two missed free throw's. Can't complain though.

Loving the increase in boards so far. Hoping he keeps it up. Just wish he would get up to even 1.3 spg which would be a career high. But that's such a trivial thing to nitpick with the insane numbers he's putting up already. 

 

High key gonna finish top 5 this year.

I just think you need to stop advertising your embarrassing league and the embarrassing trades taking place. If its not competitive, we really dont care. If you can get KAT for Tobias + WCS, the league is a joke.
