Going Levert here!!! The stars are all aligned for him to take the next step this year with KD out. Harrell was gifted with two alphas who’ll likely limit his touches

 

Kyrie is a more ball dominant PG than D-Lo is. Plus with the addition of Prince (He will take some touches away), don't get too hyped now.

They are going to play Prince stretch 4 a lot. DLo was pretty high usage too. I’m skeptical on LeVert, but I think he has a chance for an even bigger break out year if all goes well. Watching him play, you can see the talent is there.

OR, those 2 alphas could open up the way for him for those ease dunks and layups. Still I'm taking Trez over Levert just because the nets have a 2 game 1st week of the playoffs

Christian Wood. Nice fantasy stat line C, good FT%, shoot 3s and block shots. Worth a look since BG injury prone or even if he gets waived will be be picked up by teams that need a C and given minutes?

Darius Bazley, anyone? For deep leagues obviously. How will the rotation in OKC look like? 

CP3

SGA

Ferguson/Roberson

Gallo/Bazley

Adams

Can Gallo play the 3 on this team?

I want to drop Ed Davis for either Bazley or another possible deep sleeper like MPJ. Ed is serviceable player yes, but a boring one. Would rather have some upside on the end of my bench.

i just see him getting drafted as a mid round player, which i think he’s a late round guy at best.

ranked 84th and 88th in last two seasons (9cat) on just 23 and 22 minutes respectively. I'm happy seeing him go in the 7th/8th. Upside if he increases minutes

Mario Hezonja looks like he's carving out a niche as a point forward coming off the bench for the Blazers.

Agreed, also, if Whiteside goes down (note: he's currently down with a re-sprain of his ankle) than Zach Collins moves to C which opens up minutes at the 4.

They are so thin at 4... options are -

Small - Mario/Hood

Bigger - Tolliver/Skal (really?)

 

Mario is gaining trust and could suprise

Sleepers and Break Out Candidates for Fantasy Basketball in 2019-2020 [PreSeason edition]

 

 

Second edition of my breakout candidates and sleepers for 2019-2020 – shortly before the regular season starts, we’ve been able to see what teams and players have done in pre-season so far.

ZZ – Snoozer, should make noise this season, but so far, isn’t owned in more than 25% of the leagues out there.
ZZZ – Sleeper, could be useful this season and either has intriguing short term potential or could make an impact later this season. Isn’t owned in more than 15% of the leagues so far.
ZZZZ – Deep sleeper, probably a good target in dynasty settings and could be roadblocked this season. Keep an eye on these when their team is out of the playoff race, has secured a sot, or if the team blows it all up.

Atlantic

Boston Celtics
C. Edwards (12%) `- Already a fan favorite, but has the game to back it up. Soon he’ll be in the 6th man of the year running, and deservingly so. Could happen as soon as next year. I liken him to Ben Gordon, but without the constant discussions about him being a starter, and questions about his ability to play PG. He’s neither, and that’s just fine, because he’s a player. ZZZ
R. Williams (8%) – He’s owned in as many leagues as Tacko Fall, and that’s just sad. People seem to go for the outliers. Tacko won’t play much this season as he’s on a 2way and is a very limited player. Meanwhile, Robert Williams should be the center of the future for the Celtics. ZZ
D. Theis (3%) – I think he could turn out the be the best option for the Celtics at C, as long as Robert Williams is still up & down. Could also slide to PF. Either way, he offers a bit of value and could see decent minutes. ZZ
G. Williams (2%) – Already one of the smartest players on the court in most games, much like Carsen – he’s a player. I don’t believe he’ll be extremely valuable in one or more cats, but just produces across the board, much like Horford. He could have value really soon. ZZZ
R. Langford (1%) – Still somewhat of an enigma due to him playing injured in college and now being injured again, so we’ve seen very little, and of what we’ve seen, we’re not sure if it’s representative of what he can do. I really like his upside, but it could take a while before we see it. When we start catching glimpses, it might be a sign that the Celtics will trade Jaylen. ZZZZ

Brooklyn Nets
R. Kurucs (7%) – Didn’t have a great summer, and Taurean should take away quite a few minutes from him. Had him penciled in as the starter earlier this summer. Still, he has talent and could produce decent numbers in a backup role as well. The Nets don’t have that many options at SF/PF right now. ZZ
N. Claxton (1%) – Totally different player from Allen and Deandre, and I’m very curious to see what he’ll play like when Allen is on the court as well. Could they play together? Probably just a little bit, but it’s an interesting mix of skills. ZZZZ

New York Knicks
E. Payton (18%) – The Knicks had DSjr and Frankie Smokes, and STILL decided to bring in an extra PG. Not a great vote of confidence. DSjr had a good summer, Frankie did well for himself in the WC’s, but Payton probable fits best with the rest of their starters. We’ll see. And if they all fail, I’ve heard Fiz is prepping RJ for PG minutes as well. Ah, those Knicks. ZZ
K. Knox (14%) – Don’t really like him that much, but there’s some talent in there, somewhere. ZZZZ
F. Ntilikina (1%) – In the right system he could be very valuable. Showed that with the Frenchies, but will Fiz give him a chance to doe the same in NYC? I doubt it, but took a chance on him in the 13th round of my 20 teamer. ZZZ
I. Brazdeikis (0%) – Was great in college, was good in summer and haven’t seen much since. He strikes me as one of those typical Knicks picks in the second which turn out to do really well. ZZZZ

Philadelphia 76ers
M. Thybulle (11%) – The guy Philly gave up Tatum, Fultz, Edwards, Grant Williams etc for.  Has been a hot add, and probably goes beyond 25% if he has another good game soon. He can add steals and blocks in a few minutes, but needs to show consistency from long range. I think he’ll get there. Baby Robert Covington with maybe more upside? Philly’s wings are so thin, that he should see minutes straight away. ZZ
Z. Smith (1%) – Love his highlight reels, but he needs to be a bit more consistent. There’s a lot of room available in the Sixers backcourt, so let’s see grabs that opportunity. ZZZ

Toronto Raptors
N. Powell (15%) – Never been a huge fan, and even in the playoffs last year he wasn’t that reliable. Now he had his chance to grab a starting spot in Toronto, and he’s been impressive so far. It’s pretty neat for him that other wingplayers have been faaaar from impressive in Toronto. ZZ
C. Boucher (1%) – Tore up the G-League last year and has a set of amazing tools. Quite a bit older than you’d like and expect, but he could carve out decent minutes. Doesn’t need a lot of them to produce either. Can chip in blks, threes and rebounds, mostly. ZZZZ
D. Hernandez (0%) – Didn’t get a lot of attention, but the Raptors grabbed an interesting player in this year’s draft. He’s a few years away from contributing, but I think he could push a starter, down the line. ZZZZ
T. Davis (0%) – If you’ve followed me on Twitter on read this blog before, you already knew I love Davis. He’s a dog and he’s getting a chance to develop in the G-League while getting decent minutes in the NBA as well. Could develop into a PG or SG, and probably will see some minutes backing up both positions this year. Should’ve been drafted. ZZZZ

How much of a difference does it make if your league being H2H points vs Roto ? First year playing fantasy bball after 15 years of fantasy football.

Pretty big difference. H2H points is basically the same as standard fantasy football. Roto looks at which team does the best across 9 categories (typically) over the coarse of the year, so building a team is much more strategic to make sure you aren't overkill/deficient in certain categories.

Thanks! so are their players that are much more viable in H2H than roto? IE players like James White in football who are much more valuable in PPR than standard?

H2H is where you see punting certain categories come into play, in Roto you cant punt anything

 

Example: Bad FT% guys wont hurt you like in Roto if you build your team around bad FT%, same with block specialists, FG% anchors etc.

Yep, in roto you have to be very conscious of a players strengths and weaknesses. A guy like Westbrook is great in H2H points due to the popcorn stats, but significantly worse in roto by hurting your percentages and turnovers. I'd try a quick google on all the differences because it's honestly a lot to explain and I don't want to derail this thread.

 

Also just an FYI when people refer to H2H on here they are generally referring to H2H categories, which is a third type of league with a weekly opponent seeing who can win the most categories in a given week. If you see anything about punting it's referring to these leagues generally.
