Tired of the friggin fouling.

 

Hope you took my advice and didn't cut bait after! Followed up a 15-6 and 5blk game with a 20-7 3stls 3blks 2 treys game. 

 

I understand not everyone plays in deep 16-20 team leagues but you def want to hang onto upside because it usually pays off in the end.

This is so much fun to be apart of! Only going to keep getting better and better. Congrats to those of you who got him in keeper/dynasty leagues too, what a stud you have on your hands. The kid is barely 19 and like 10 games into his rookie year. I can't even imagine what he'll be doing in 3-5 years when he becomes a vet, grows into his body more, the game slow down, and he keeps improving. One of the highest ceilings in the league right now, and no, that's not just tonight's hype talking. Legit talent here from a soon to be NBA star.

JJJ>Doncic by the end of the season. 

I own and I love JJJ's game fantasy wise and IRL but Doncic is by far the better Rookie. He is probably the best player on his team right now which is crazy. If you mean strictly in fantasy, I can see this happening... If he has figured out how to avoid the foul trouble thing. But then again, there is WCJ...

 

Anyway great game today, his fantasy stock is trending sky high again.

I tried to trade for him the first 2 weeks of the season and owner said no or only wanted a player like Nurkic in return. That same owner dropped him a few days ago and I woke up early to scoop him up instead of burning my #1 waiver priority. I’m laughing to the bank now because his upside is super high. I believe he will earn more minutes as the season goes and they will run more plays for him.

I wont be shocked if he is more valuable than Ayton by the end of next year. Im assuming he is going to have a pretty big second half of the season and be picked in the 40s-50s in redraft leagues next year. After that, it probably depends what Memphis does with Gasol in free agency.

Peak Garnett averaged 6 assists a game and was a monster rebounder. Do you reckon that JJJ has either of those things in him?

 

JJJ should also have a much higher blocks ceiling than KG so I don't think it's a very good comparison.

Do you guys think JJJ is good enough to use the number 1 waiver claim on if someone dropped him?

 

Hell. Yes. Literally helps you everywhere except assists.

If you are in a shallow redraft though do you think he has turned a corner? I mean he was posting some major duds. I think he looks fantastic at times but shallow leagues there are some stacked teams.

The duds were due to foul trouble. When he's managed to avoid fouls, he's always delivered.

A lot of players are increasing their rebounds this season with the new rules. Marc Gasol isn't getting any younger, JJJ's basically 18 just turned 19 years old and solidly built already & will most definitely grow another inch or two approaching 7ft tall. His rebound numbers are guaranteed to increase, so correction Garnett with a 3 ball & elite Blocks.

I was thinking that.  I wanted to wait until one of the teams has way too many injuries, and is forced to drop a really talented player out of necessity.  But JJJ could end having a better year than any of those players that potentially could be dropped later. I think you're right.  Thank you.

By shallow you mean an 8 team 12 roster spots, he is definitely top 96. I probably couldn’t name more than 40 players I’d rather own than JJJ!

Was anyone here consistent in anything in their life after just turning 19 other than jerking off?

I was, and still am, a consistent farter.
