    Well obviously but the contract is a sunk cost and has no bearing on how he gets along with teammates. I mean why does he not apparently mesh with his other teammates?

    Players do care about who's paid what and what role they play. However, I believe here, it's mostly a hip injury issue and the Bulls taking it slowly with him. Porter never needed high usage to be valuable. Let them gel.He'll end up top 40 again this season, starts slow every year.

    The problem is that the wizards never valued him either.  He didn’t get along with Wall/Beal.  We never know what goes on behind closed doors and he seems like such a nice guy, he’s a low usage, efficient, 3 and D guy.  Seems like a perfect fit on any team.  Yet no one values him.  It starts to make me question whether there’s something about him that teams don’t like.  

     

    CONTRACT:4 yr(s) / $106,524,975

    If he can somehow get his fg% to where it was during the Portland days (around 44%), that would do wonders for his value. His past 5 seasons have been 39%, 39%, 40%, 41%, 39%... so I’m not too optimistic but playing with Giannis in this Bucks system looks like a major boost to his efficiency thus far. 

    The spacing on that Bucks team is underrated. The long range shooters get so much room. It's alaso why I feared Brogdon would shoot worse in Indy, but so far, he's been great as well. I think Wes should be able to hit 45% FG for the season. I also want to see how long that 14 pt streak will last. Pull him when he hits it in the 2nd for all I care.

  4. Free Agents owned in less than 50% of the leagues and deeper sleepers owned in less than 20% of the leagues.

    Crazy first week in fantsy. Some great breakout players (like my guys Nunn and Graham, salute). Also some players who're slow to get it going (CP). Lesson one: don't panic. Don't sell the farm for Nunn and Kaminsky, and don't give on CP and OPjr.

    New year, new format. I’ll be checking the waiver wires for free agent suggestions, based on statistical needs. For each cat, I’ll list a group of potential adds: a group of players which are owned in 50% of the leagues, or less. And then another group of players who’re owned in even fewer leagues: 20% or less, consider these ‘deep sleepers’, they could have value for just a few days, might be a gamble if you have dead weight on the end of your bench, or is some cases: dynasty targets.

    After the first week, I’ll also start doing a review of the suggestions I listed in a previous edition. Gotta take some ownership of the mistakes you make, I guess.

    Securing your FG%
    Players owned in 50% or less:
    • Davis Bertans (42%) – I think the averages we’ve seen over his first two games should be indicative of what to expect over the coarse of a season. He’s an incredible shooter who does little to nothing else.

    • Aron Baynes (21%) – With Ayton out for 25 games, Aynes will be valuable. He adds scoring, FG%, some rebounds, ast and maybe a few blocks, his FT% is great and he even shoots a few threes. Nothing great, but nice production across the board, without hurting you anywhere.

    Players owned in 20% or less:
    • Bryn Forbes (17%) – Not too great across the board, but his shooting is simple great. I think he could be just above average for guards in FG%, which is great in combination with his threes. Once again, not much else.

    • Jabari Parker (12%) – Not the production you’d want out of a former #2 pick, but he’s been okay in his role as bench scorer in ATL. His FG% usually hovers around 50%, which is nice, but against lesser competition off the bench, he could raise it a little bit.

    • Eric Paschall (10%) – Good scorer in college who just had to shoot a bit too many threes as a senior. I think he’ll do well for the Warriors who are desperate to find another scoring threat.

    • Jamychael Green (7%) – I love him in his current role with the Clippers. So dangerous, but don’t expect his FG% and threes to stay like they are – the 70% from three is a somewhat unrealistic expectation over 82 games.

    Securing your FT%
    Players owned in 50% or less:
    • Marcus Morris (49%) – I loved him in his first year in Boston, and this could be shaping up to be a repeat of that season. The numbers are very much alike.

    • Frank Kaminksy (35%) – Probably the guy who gained most from Ayton’s suspension, although he had looked good in the period before that as well. Kaminksy might just be a top 100 player this season.

    • Luke Kennard (34%)- As long as Griffin is out, Kennard has good value, much like he did in the playoffs last season. He’ll also be the biggest loser in value when Blake returns.

    • Ivica Zubac (29%) – Won’t play all that much all the time, but he’s looking much better than in preseason. Nice bonus for an already deep squad.

    • Aron Baynes (21%) – Does it all at an above average level.

    Players owned in 20% or less:
    • Tim Hardaway (15%) – Would hate to rely on him for FT, because he hurts so many other categories.

    • Josh Okogie (6%) – Was a great FT shooter in college, should be doing well again now.

    • Marquese Chriss (6%) – Doesn’t have a clue what he’s doing and racks up fouls and free throws alike.

    • Shabazz Napier (4%) – Not a good addition anywhere else, but if you’re desperate for ASt, he could be your guy.

    • Allonzo Trier (1%) – Doesn’t do much well, but knows how to score and attack.

    I think he's going to be goodish.  He's a great rebounder and if he gets time he can get a block.  Poor FT but doesn't shoot them.  No out of position anything.  Just pure 15/10/1.  Basically a free Kanter.  Actually he may be better than Kanter.  It just depends on how badly you need ten boards.

    Kanter has the FT% advantage normally, which TT clearly doesnt have. 


  6. Have to replace an inactive manager. He drafted a decent collection of players but has been mia recently. Will replace him with an active and knowledgable manager, with good experience. No buy-in, standard 9 cats, active off season with dedicated board and some really fun managers including a couple of fantasy writers, designers, podcasters etc.

     

    Booker, Hield, Coby White, Domas are his core youth pieces. DM if interested.
