You can say that again. He's one my my last 3 picks in a 12 teamer. Now, if he could just improve his FT..

 

His FT% has been 70% or above for the past 3 years.  I think there will be some progression to the mean here.  I expect it to end up at a little above 70% at the minimum.

Typical rotoworld.  Doesn't even give Bazemore a blurb after he puts up a beautiful 8-cat line.  2/1/1 last night.  There was one season he had good FG%.  I'm hoping the extra play means Bazemore is able to get on a groove and keep that FG% decent.  Keep it up, Baze!

It doesn't really matter anyway.  Only averages 3 ft attempts per game so not enough volume in ft attempts to have much impact.

The new ROCO?

 

The original ROCO!  Bazemore has been doing this for years.  Only difference with this year is he finally has the minutes to make himself standout.  He's been low-key fantasy gold top 100 for years.

Not like covington helps your FG though either

If you look at 2015-2016, Bazemore's break-out season, he had an FG% of 44%.  He was great that year.  Subsequently his FG% fell, as did his minutes.  He dealt with some minor injuries.  But if you look at Bazemore's 3 point percentage, it's actually positive.  Part of his FG% woes is he was asked to shoot almost exclusively 3 pointers.  Now that he seems to have a little more freedom on offense, his FG% has risen back up.  I wouldn't be surprised if he made 44% of his shots this season again.  We're looking at a legend in the making my friends.

My man Kent is criminally undervalued.  I got this gem off of the waiver wire in one of my leagues this year.  And he's getting no love on the forum.

 

First off, who doesn't need what is basically a 1/1/1 guy?  Especially since he's more like a 1.5/1.5/1 guy.  If you can swallow his FG% (which a correctly constructed team can), he's absolute gold.  Keep in mind he did this last year with only 27.5 minutes a game.  Can you imagine this cat if he gets 30+ minutes a game?  15/4/4/1/1/1.  Basically Gordon Hayward.

 

If he's on your wire, run, don't walk!

Yeah I don't get it. Can you believe somebody dropped him for J.Clarkson. I compared the two and they don't measure up, not close. Prince is supposed the be the man, but Bazemore gets stocks and stocks and treys and stocks. Hopefully I can scoop him.

Got dropped in my league. It's not super-competitive but still. Am I missing something?

He is going to have up and down weeks but will average top 75 especially when Collins comes back (less TOs, higher fg%)

 

I just dropped him hours ago but wil pick him back up. Trying out vonleh, mitchrob, and bam in a 10 team league.

Bad idea to drop a god. He’s ranked lower because of to’s and ft% that will normalize. His stocks and 3’s are amazing. Don’t expect him to still be there when you go to pick him back up.

he is getting drop is mainly due to his inconsistency. It drives some owners nut. He can get you 3 point one night then the next score over 20 + points.

Your god was standard 9-cat

 

#84th    2017-18

#146th  2016-17

#74th    2015-16

Like i said, I expect him to top last year's 84th ranking. He's a career 42.4% shooter, shot 42% last season, shooting 48.5% this current season which is good. But that should normalize as well. His TO is similar to last year's at 2.4.  He is a career 71.7% ft shooter. I expect him to shoot better than the current 68%, but not the 79.6% he shot last year.
 

As mentioned, I play in a 10 team league. It isn't hard to find a 7th or 8th round streamer weekly. 

I wrote previously that Bazemore:

"larger sample size  (65 games from last season including his game with right knee injury)"
#23 (3-pt, steals, blocks)

I understand his value when punting categories.

Isn't that just about everybody outside the top 50? I don't get that mentality.

Idk. Huerter looks decent and is lurking.

 

And it's the Hawks. There are no umwritten rules as to how the rotation must be approached. Maybe coach feels like having Bazemore come off the bench one night.

Getting outplayed by Huerter at the half and less PT (9min vs Huerter's 19min). Is this indicative Bazemore's (declining) ROS outlook? Was already contemplating dropping Baze for his inconsistency...

Just scored 9 pts in a few minutes, that said, who cares about the points when he's picking up stocks like a kid getting candy on Halloween... 4 steals and 2 blocks and it's still in the 3rd
