Alex Len Outlook 2018-19

jokes aside, if Len stays out of foul trouble, I think 26-30 mpg for the next week or two is a good possibility. Only Spellman, Poythress, and Plumlee are left with Collins out for a week or two. Dedmon returning will likely put Len at around 25 mpg.

Dude is going to foul. That's part of his game. But if he can get his %s around 49% and 72% with .8 threes and 1.8 blks, congrats.

The weird thing is that his fg% fluctuates: 42.3, 50.7, 42.3, 49.7, 56.6. 

 

He was encouraged to "expand" his game during that 3rd year after showing promise in his second year, then they realized that they shouldn't try to post him up lol

They encouraged him to shoot more mid range shots during his 3rd year to expand his game. 20% of his shots were 16+ footers during that year, so that definitely dragged down his FG%. 

 

This year I think he will only be dunks/layups and 3's

Just not involved at all, it looks like the ball on both ends is avoiding him.

It's a blowout and it's not like his backups outplayed him. 

 

On the bright side, he attempted 2 threes tonight. He really has the green light to fire from behind the arc

You guys starting him in roto leagues?  I think I'm going to take a wait and see approach after his first game.

 

Well tonight, he's going up against a slower paced team and a bigger/slower type of center in Marc Gasol, so hopefully at least he won't be benched due to pace/small ball type of issues, only if he sucks.

Streamed him on Sunday for the Block and he won me the week.. Now I am thinking keeping him over Boban.. Obviously I need to see if he will get consistent playing time once Dedmon is back

Slow a$$ Boban who got 4 minutes of playing time Sunday vs. Len who is actually starting?  Not high on either but if you are contemplating this move then it's going to be a long season for you, imo.

Come on Len. Let's keep up a little consistency now. I was actually giving him 3 games before dropping and then he teases me with his last game lol.

It’s easy to drop a guy (Len) after 3 games as starter if he sucks than to cry to have missed him if he can put 1 3´s/ 11Pts / 9 Reb / 1.5 BLK 

 

easier to take a flier with Collins out for several weeks

Anything changes here now with Collins out for a couple more weeks? It seems like he has all the chances to break out, at least for the short term. Dedmon does not play major minutes even if he starts. Could see Len playing 26-28min even with Dedmon full healthy without Collins playing small ball 5
