The bolded is completely and utterly wrong. Actual competitive roto leagues are usually won by people that do best in efficiency stats because they're the ones where you find the most value.

 

Sure. Turnovers don't matter in H2H.

 

Neither do points.

 

Or steals.

 

Or assists.

 

Or blocks.

 

No s--- you can punt one category. And when you punt that category, you're not ignoring it. You're actively picking up negative stats in that category to make you stronger elsewhere. Turnovers always matter in 9-cat.

 

I never said anything about percentages.  I agree that efficiency stats are important, ie. FG% and FT%.  And I also agree with you that no cat is better than another.... in a vacuum.   If I were picking between 2 players with identical stats but one averaged 3 TOs and the other averaged 1.5, of course I will take the low TOs all day everyday.  I am agreeing with you for the most part.

 

Where I don't agree is that you should "focus" on TOs, as in try to be elite in that category because the inherent link between elite players and high TOs.

You're right in that we agree for the most part. Never did I say that you should focus on turnovers, simply that they matter.

Just bought low on this guy. 

 

Gave up Jrue + Bjelica for Prince and Gobert

 

I figured with Payton + Bogdan returning it was a sell high for Jrue/Bjelly

 

Anyway hope Prince pulls his finger out and starts hitting shots.

I don't own either but I never got the appeal for Payton, I wouldn't even touch him if he was on the wire in a 14team. Bad ft/To, no 3s, meh steals.

lol don't drop him. He is a streaky player and you should have know that when drafting him. This is nothing, he went on like a month long cold streak last season.

Don't worry ATL tank supporters, you can count on Trash Young to hog the ball when Prince finally gets his shot going :D:D

Prince was iced by his own teammates early (by J-Lin) and late by Young...even the Laker commentators were talking about it. Not to mention, Omari ******** Spellman shot a 3 with less than 30 seconds left. HAWKS LUL

Great shot selection from Prince the entire night, resulting in higher percentage shots and more makes. After he started feeling it, he finally did a heat check and hit that too. IMO he actually seemed a bit more conscious about making smarter plays...there were some instances where we could've slung an ill-advised shot over a defender (like in previous games), but he moved it around instead and let the game come to him. This is what I want to see from him going forward.

in one of my leagues, someone had him on the bench. Can't say I blame him but it's good to see him play well. Now need some consistency

In one of my leagues another player dropped Taurean Prince to FA. Should I take him from waivers with 2nd pick in waiver wire? Thanks.

AC forum, but this is an absolute no-brainer. No idea why Prince would even be dropped - he had consistency issues last year as well but when he gets hot, he can provide long stretches of outstanding production. Easy top 70 player on the season.
