  1. Isn't repairing MCL a multi month recovery process anyway? They have no reason to rush Oubre back this season too.
  2. We might all have some stupid takes throughout the season, but just know none of them are as stupid as this.
  3. If you're so upset then why are you even playing H2H then lmao. The luck factor along with the variance is a feature of the game. And it's good for banter between friends. There's a reason why roto exists. And eltoro isn't even talking about just drafting for schedule. You can always make trades during the season to get players with better playoffs schedules. At the end of the day, everyone who's played fantasy for a long enough time knows that **** HAPPENS.
  4. ITT: People calling players dealing with injuries as busts.
  5. Mikal is not as offensively versatile as Oubre is. He can't iso like Oubre did, so the extra shots he'll be getting are going to fluctuate since it'll mostly be from cuts, catch and shoots, and fast breaks.
  6. Imagine saying drop city every time Favors doesn't get 10-10 instead of just dropping him and not coming back to this thread. Jfc these "discussion" threads should just be renamed circlejerk.
  7. Felt like he was moving off the ball well, especially since he came from the Nuggets. DLO and James Johnson were ball stoppers today and killed any offensive rhythm.
  8. Lol there's literally no reason to panic. Monty usually staggers Oubre's minutes with Ayton because Diallo sucks, but with Ayton out and Diallo starting, their bench unit would become even more trash with zero ball handlers when Booker and Rubio are on the bench. If Oubre started, the second unit would've gotten run out the gym since they're undersized and have zero defense. My first thought when I saw Oubre was coming off the bench was that Monty believed having Johnson in the lineup from the start as a 3 point shooter could keep up with the Lakers, and then have Oubre off the bench when Rubio and/or Booker sit. And that's basically what happened. It's a fluke game because Ayton's out, there's no reason to worry Edit: And he was late to the team bus. Probably met up with Kendall Jenner
  9. So you'd rather take a 7 game sample size rather than the 100+ game sample size where Favors still got his rebounds and stocks next to Gobert? If you think Favor's is going to average 0.7 blocks the rest of the season go ahead and drop him. Lmao. And yes I'd rather have Favors than Bjelica. Bjelica doesn't have any consistency and the Kings rotation is a shitshow once all their bigs come back. I'd rather have a big that is reliable and has a carved out role with low double doubles, high FG%, and stocks than a PF that has unreliable shooting and minutes. If you're so unsure watch the actual games.
  10. I've mentioned this talking point a couple days ago in this thread. Yes, Zion does impact his overall rebounding numbers but on the court it's not as impactful as people are making it out to seem. The recent teams the pelicans have played are 3 point shooting teams which means longer rebounds and a lot of blowouts which meant they gave Jaxson Hayes more minutes to help him develop. That and he hasn't been able to get into his usual position down the post to be able to block shots near the rim. Let him get used to where he has to play off of Zion. Favors got his playing next to DPOY Gobert. Favors isn't a player you judge just by looking at the box scores once in while.
  11. So what exactly do you think Zion joining the lineup takes away from Favors? Favors averaged .586/.675/11.8/7.4/1.2/0.7/1.4/1.1 last year (rank 76) with the Jazz playing next to Gobert who averaged 13 rebounds last year. And that was with Favors dealing with nagging injuries last season. Favors knows how to play away from the ball and where to position himself. That's his bread and butter. Favors is the only competent big man on the Pelicans that provides good rim protection. If you think pace is going to be the issue, Favors was on the floor with Ingles and Rubio a lot last year where they would bump up the pace because that's how Rubio plays too. If you're in a points league, I can't say much, but Favors is not a cut in 9cat.
  12. RHJ has like zero court awareness Back on the floor though.
  13. I don't get why people don't tune into the game if they're that curious about how someone is instead of being asked to be spoonfed answers. Anyways Ish Smith still looks good. It's going to be a timeshare between Smith and Napier with whoever is hot getting more minutes. No way in hell are they both playing together. But the good thing is that Wizards play a high pace. When Beal was on the bench it's a whoever's PG + Rui show. In the end it's about what your team needs.
  14. Embiid gonna be the first first round pick to have two games below 10% shooting in a week
  15. With how Mitchell looks down the stretch almost every game, I wonder if Snyder changes his game plan to cater to Conley more. Mitchell's so frustrating to watch on offense.
  16. There's some serious short term memory going on here. Gobert is a far better rebounder than Zion and Favors still had his in limited minutes. Fantasy basketball forums would be so much more civil and informed if people actually watched the games, but no, they just look at a box score and think they know everything that happened. Hell, people were saying Hayes was going to replace Favors. And then there's people saying Malik is a must own league winner because of the trade to the Wolves. Ffs just watch the games.
  17. I'm convinced no one actually watches the Pelicans by how everyone's reactions are. Yes, Zion does impact his overall rebounding numbers but on the court it's not as impactful as people are making it out to seem. The recent teams the pelicans gave played are 3 point shooting teams which means longer rebounds. One thing I will concede is that the pelicans aren't necessarily utilizing him well. The Jazz used to funnel the opposing offense into him if they got to the rim. That let him be in a prime position for rebounds. The paint also looks clogged all the time when they do pick n rolls, so what used to be bread and butter for Favors isn't working out for him. That said, Zion doesn't set good screens and hes not a good rim protector. favors has been looking a little sluggish recently so i do expect the break to do wonders for him
  18. Conley isn't going to play up to his Memphis day standards, but I think he can manage to salvage around 8th round value if he finds his shot. This team is Mitchell's team and he demands the ball a lot. From what I've seen in the past 3 years, he's not someone that works off the ball well so when Conley and Mitchell are on the floor together, Conley is going to be in the corner waiting for a look. Even when Utah had a better orchestrator and playmaker in Rubio, Snyder relegated him to spot up shooter. It didn't matter if it was a halfcourt set or not, Mitchell always seems to want to ISO and it kills the momentum. Utah doesn't even have a good pick n roll big since they lost Favors, so can't be too sure where Conley is going to find his assists. As great as Snyder has been defensively, he hasn't helped anyone offensively IMO
  19. I don't get the hate for him resting. Garland has looked physically worn out the past few games and he's been trying to do things that his body isn't able to keep up with. If resting one day helps him get over his rookie wall and prevents him from developing bad habits, that's a better outlook for ROS.
  20. FWIW FantasyPros has me 2nd/3rd for FG, PTS, REB, BLK, TO. 6th/7th for FT%, 3PT, STL. Last in assists. Although I've been pretty competitive in every single category besides assists. 6 out of 10 make playoffs, and everyone's active on waiver but usually no trades. I've been losing categories by single digits most of the time which makes me regret not streaming.
  21. 3 games out of playoffs in a 10T 9CAT league. With playoffs starting in about 8-9 weeks, I think the chances of me making it is close to zero. I'll choose to just enjoy the rest of the season than think about fantasy basketball implications. If anyone wants to suggest any YOLO moves since this is a lost season, I'll try to get it done, and sit back and relax.

  22. He has a tendency to settle for midrange shots or fadeaways. I think as the season goes on he'll bang it down low more, but he's not necessarily getting unfair treatment from the refs.
  23. Anyone know what the statistics are on how many players that were questionable played the next day? A lot of players have been questionable and game time decisions that just seem to be constantly out.
