Ricky Rubio 2019-2020 Outlook

Recommended Posts

spacer.png

 

The Suns haven't had a floor general like Rubio for a long time. He's going to be so good for this team. Elite steals, elite assist, good rebounds for a guard. Will provide a couple of 3's as well. Extremely high minutes. And uh... He's good.

I think Rubio is going to be one of the biggest value picks of the year. Regardless of how you want to measure it (I think player rankings are overrated and it is mostly about your build), I think Rubio will smash it throughout the year. I watched way too many Utah games and learned way too much about Snyder's system over the past 2 years. It just isn't a fit for Ricky. It works for the Jazz roster, but Ricky's skillset could not be utilized and should not have been catered to. Ricky is still the same guy capable of running the offense and distributing, but he has actually improved his offense. I hate his corner 3, but he won't be sitting in a corner in Phoenix. His steals will be less than his peak days, but his offense will be better. 8 cat I think he is top 50. I think assists are becoming the NBA version of the NFL's RB by committee. I think Ricky is being severely slept on this year.

Ravishing Rick killing it! This is exactly what I wanted from him - elite assists, great boards for a guard and excellent steals. 

He's doing a really good job playmaking and keeping the offense flowing too - PHX looks like an actual NBA team for once. Excited to own him this year and I haven't said that in a long time.

Great fit in PHX and good coaching.

Was an entertaining game to watch unless you’re a SAC fan (I’ve decided that Walton really does suck as a coach)

He was top 50 in 9 cat his last two years in Minnesota. Then he switched over to Snyder's system in Utah and saw his assists drop dramatically.

Looks like he'll be back to returning mid-round value. 11 assists, 4 steals tonight. Lovely.

According to that blurb, the only reason to draft him was to be a steals and assist specialist. So yeah... They don't know who Ricky Rubio is.

He's much more than that in the right system.

Big year for Ricky I think - I can see something like 12/8/5 with 1.5 steals. His fg% is never going to be great but ft% should be elite. Top 50 player, easy and will outperform his ADP

He looked great out there running the offence w/ Booker. They've got a pretty damn fun team to watch all of a sudden

Just picked him up for Miles Bridges as i am in a 8 team league and dont have patience to wait for Miles to blow up. Ricky is usually a second half stud but looked good last night and with the Suns style of play i think he will be very good. Thoughts?

He's an average rebounder for a PG. Gives you about 4 per game. Most people play in standard 9 cat with TO's as a cat, so AST/TO ratio (if that's what you were trying to say in your post) is irrelevant for those leagues. Although it is great for those leagues that do have AST/TO instead.

He does provide a boost in FT%, but not sure what the gripe is about him being an assists/steals specialist. Those are far and away his two biggest strengths in standard 9 cat.

A player's AST/TO is not completely irrelevant to 9Cat leagues. Not every team that goes for AST punts TO. And most league's don't even have the AST/TO category, but they're still two (linked) categories that you need to think about in terms of team construction.

Lots of teams absolutely target all efficiency categories along with AST. See how Chris Paul dominated as a top 5 pick for many years.

Rubio is one of the biggest TO drains in fantasy basketball, so please just stop.

I guess its just semantics but when I hear assist steals specialist I think hes giving me piss in all other cats. something like pts and 3' specialist gets you only pts and threes. I think Rubio offers more than a specialist. not that big of a deal 

 

and royloi hit it on the head. getting dimes while not torching ur t/o is appealing to some. that's why cp3 was so valuable and appealing to some

Never said he wasn't lol.


Way to not address anything I said. Continue with your (wrong) proclamations, though.

Rubio is back to Minnesota level productions and may even exceed it. The Suns absolutely need his vision and ball handling and fast-paced way of playing.

He's gonna have a 12/10.5 sorta season with 2.5-2.7 turnovers. It was only the terrible fit in Utah that wrecked his assists and made his turnovers a nuisance.

You guys are just arguing to argue now aren't you?

BBM has him in the top 20 in turnover drains. With the increased usage in PHX, that's just a reality.

I have Rubio on a few teams and love what he offers. But let's not act like he doesn't have his warts. You'd think he was Malcolm Brogdon the way some of you are on the defensive.

He's ONLY Top 20 in "turnover drains" with the potential to lead the league in assists? Sounds great to me. At the MINIMUM he's top 5 this year.

Please just stop.
