  1. Ben McLemore is on my wire and, although obviously not a replacement for Holmes' big man stats, looks like a real spicy add at the moment...
  2. Exact same boat. Have AD and PG, and both of them wet the bed tonight. Fortunately - and somewhat ironically - Zach LaVine didn't.
  3. Just given PF eligibility on ESPN... but he can't get SG eligibility? When does he ever actually play PF?
  4. Problem there is not having another PG and all of the free agent PGs being absolute garbage (as expected in a 14 team league)... and not at all sure if Nance/Holmes have any trade value as a sweetener to combine with anybody else on my roster.
  5. No idea, really. Dragic would give me a second PG eligible player, though... and Devin Booker is elite as long as he can stay healthy. Booker + Paul George + Anthony Davis sounds like a dream combo... but not sure if I like Dragic enough to go through with the deal.
  6. My team as presently constructed (10 cat H2H - 9 cat plus offensive rebounds). 14 team league. Anthony Davis Paul George CJ McCollum Zach LaVine Robert Covington TJ Warren Jarrett Allen Brook Lopez Larry Nance Jr. Patrick Beverley Luke Kennard Richaun Holmes Miles Bridges
  7. He’s my only PG eligible player, and he actually helps a lot as an underrated source of rebounds for a point guard (two rebound categories in this league) along with steals and the occasional block.
  8. Can't keep all three (Paul George is on my IR), so have to drop one. 10 cat (9 cat + offensive rebounds) H2H, 14 team league. Here's my full roster. Anthony Davis Paul George CJ McCollum Zach LaVine Robert Covington Jarrett Allen Brook Lopez TJ Warren Larry Nance Jr. Miles Bridges Patrick Beverley Luke Kennard Richaun Holmes
  9. Fell to me at #26 (after I had already drafted AD), so I did exactly this and paired them up to punt assists.
  10. Went punt assists in my 14 team H2H league and drafted AD first and PG second.
  11. I think 8 AST from a score-first PG is overly optimistic, to be honest. I know he averaged 6.9 last season with Boston, but prior to that, he only eclipsed the 6 AST mark once. The rest looks relatively attainable... I'd probably knock the FG% down a percentage or two though, along with the BLK and STL a tick or two each.
  12. 1/8 at the half with 2 points... lord, have mercy.
  13. Yeah, I was banking on him playing tonight to have any sort of hope of possibly salvaging this week since I'm already losing, but that glimmer of hope flew out the window quick, fast, and in a hurry.
  14. I’m just nitpicking. Currently losing both percentage categories at the moment so that’s where some of the frustration derives from.
  15. 3rd pick actually (Giannis and Steph went 1 & 2). No doubt that he's probably the best individual player amongst the first rounders (also helps that he's pretty easy to build around), but is he "so much better" than someone like Giannis or Harden to where you'd have that much of an advantage over a Giannis or Harden led team just from the jump? Probably not. And I was fully expecting PG to stay in the 43-46% range for the most part, but like I said, I drafted him with the assumption that AD wouldn't be shooting sub-50% on a regular basis, and that's exactly what he's done since he's returned from the few games he missed earlier in the season. If PG is basically doing what I expected him to do (did not expect a 23 FGA per game volume, though), then I need AD to do the same... especially since most of his shots are coming either at or very close to the rim.
  16. I don't disagree with you at all, but when your #2 pick is Paul George who has been shooting sub-41% on 23 FGA the last week and you didn't initially intend to punt FG%, you're allowed to feel some type of way when your supposed FG% anchor is doing more harm than good in that particular category.
  17. Only decent landing spot where I think he'll be able to thrive (relative to OKC and HOU) is Philly.
  18. Sad to see his catastrophic fall from grace. Seems like the only system he fits into is one where he's constantly relied upon as the number one option to be an iso scorer in the midrange... and at 34, I don't think he has that capability anymore, even on a lottery bound team.
