  1. So I’ve picked him up for 2 reasons: 1. To bolster my steals 2. For the Memphis 4-3-4 playoff schedule (in my league) Can’t complain tbh.
  2. So who's the pickup here between Brunson, Delon Wright and Seth Curry?
  3. Well, if you actually believe the other guy is going to accept the trade, then it's a no-brainer.
  4. If this is a 9-cat league, I'd be legitimately surprised if someone who owns Harden and Ayton would trade for Jokic and Middleton. Harden > Jokic, and Ayton > Middleton. Not only that, Middleton is a serious fantasy playoff rest candidate due to the bucks being so far ahead in the East.
  5. Likewise. I hear a lot of 'Whiteside's way better in fantasy, and not that good at real defense', but I was looking at some advanced metrics and they seem to suggest he's pretty good. Not sure if Portland should be trading Whiteside. And this is coming from someone stashing Nurkic.
  6. One game doesn't mean much tbh. Held him since drafting him, and legit considering dropping or trading him for whatever I can get. Despite yesterday's excellent game, he's been so bad for the last couple of weeks, that he's still ranked outside the Top-150 in 9-Cat (14 day avg).
  7. So, this FT% problem is gonna be a real thing, eh? I typically try to avoid punting FTs (my other bigs are Jokic, Collins and Bryant), but this guy’s going to make it hard not to punt. I’m hoping he can lift it to 65-70%. Anyone know what his FT% in college was?
  8. I think they’ll ‘Spurs’ it like Kawhi. His minutes will be in the 20~ range when folks are healthy. But in the playoffs, they slowly ramp it up. He helps them wins the title and becomes Finals MVP. I mean, that’s going to happen, right?
  9. Is Young really the add? I've picked him up (dropped Culver, for anyone curious), but I'm tempering my expectations. His minutes and performances have varied a lot, and I have to wonder how much they'll even push Young. Have to wonder if the coaching staff is even willing to play him 35 MPG consistently with all the injuries going on.
  10. To echo what has already been called out - this is a SELL HIGH moment. If you can somehow get a 2nd or even 3rd round proven/consistent player for him, you should trade him immediately. Will I trade him? No. Too much fun lol. WillI regret it? Maybe lol.
  11. Lol. Have both Jokic and Zion. Them fatboys gotta run.
  12. Man, I benched this guy today cause of the heavy schedule. Oh well. Hopefully it's a sign of things to come.
  13. It's a player development season at this point. So gotta develop Mahinmi real good.
  14. Out for today. Thankfully, it's a full schedule today, so probably won't hurt people too much. But hoping this doesn't turn into a lingering thing.
  15. For a long duration/sample size, yup. He can get hot during some weeks and post early round value. Equal likelihood of sucking for a few weeks and being outside the top-100.
  16. Jrue can play off the ball too. When Pels had Rondo and Jrue, both thrived. I think Lonzo is a solid top 80-100 play for 9-cat leagues for ROS.
  17. I agree with the 'if he doesn't play today, then something is fishy' idea. This is just weird at this point. Arguably one of the most durable players in the league just being in a limbo state doesn't make sense. Man, if he's trying to force his way out this early in a contract, that's cray.
  18. Just traded for this guy (gave up Trae Young) in a 9-cat h2h. Let’s keep that ride rolllling.
  19. And his combined 0.7 stls and blks don't help either. He's averaging a whopping 1.0 combined stls/blks/3s (in 32 mpg) over the past week while also hurting your FT%. In 9-cat, that is what gets you ranked as 134. Folks need to get over pop-corn stat trip-dubs thinking that's the secret to fantasy success. That's what makes you an amateur in Nba fantasy. Fultz ceiling for this season is around current-state Derrick Rose imo. Top-100 range.
  20. Guys, did I miss a memo or something? Fultz is ranked 134th in 9-cat over the last week. And that's despite having a trip-dub in there. If that's your definition of a 'Fultz breakout', good luck, buddy. Seriously.
