Moritz Wagner 2019-2020 Outlook

Recommended Posts

Wagner and Bertans has this great mind meld thing going on that I've only previously seen from Jokic and Harris so I feel that Brooks consider them inseparable. Their playing time is predicated on which pair between Rui and Bryant and them are playing better along with foul trouble.

How do we feel about him 24 hours after coming back from Spaxe?

 

12 team roster owner or just a streamer?

 

at just 20 mpg it seems there will be more inconsistency than anything else even though that huge game put him close to top 100 on the year.

Borderline rosterable in 12 teamers as a possible stash or handcuff to Bryant, but he still did decent damage today in 20 minutes. Keeping a very close eye on his situation though, Brooks might start toying with the lineups if they keep losing.

He's made some noticeable improvements this year. Scoring about 50% better and almost doubling his rebounding and PER. He won't be able to overtake Thomas Bryant for the starting job though and I don't think he will play PF (Wiz have played him exclusively at center so far this season according to basketball reference), so the only way for him to truly shine is if TB gets hurt. He's basically Eastern Conference version of Brandon Clarke - a lottery ticket who still provides acceptable production in limited minutes.

the problem I think is that Bryant and Hachimura are also 2 young prospects who will get minutes all year if they stay heathy. no old veterans who will be rested or shut down later in the season. Clarke for example could be unleasehd later if they would shut down Valanciunas.

Watching him play last night 

Definitely moves around like a center 

No way he sees minutes at the 4

He's on the watchlist, but needs more minutes and reps. If he gets the minutes who knows what his production could be like as the season carries on.

My man doing work early, 5pts 2blk 1trp in 4 minutes. Love this guy.

 

Maybe gets some extended run if they play Bertans a little more against his former team.

good to know hes more or less getting blocks even if they vanish or whatever, that 0 was annoying to see on the surface as his value is the 3-block combo he offers

Yes, one of the most infuriating things when having the Yahoo stat tracker up, seeing that red line flash, and your player stocks disappearing lolz.

 

Right next to seeing a player get an offensive foul, ugh.

I really don’t understand why brooks isn’t at least attempting to play him out there with Bryant. He’s a stretch shooter and he looks great defensively, use them like olynyk and bam.

Give it time. I think he is starting to emerge as the best of the 3 between him, bryant and bertrans. better defender than both of them I would say, definitely better offensively than both, plus his name sounds super cool and that's important too. I don't think he will explode but I wouldn't be surprised if he settles into like a 28 mpg role and if injuries happen to bryant/bertrans, look out.

The Bertrans-Wagner duo is the second best two-man unit on the Wiz according to BBall Reference.

We'll see if that remains true. Wagner had that one huge game and the rest of his lines are nowhere close.  It's early in the season so that one game really made a huge difference in his ranking.

Dropped Mo Bamba for this guy. You better drop atleast 12/6 with minimal stocks. I am so god damn desperate for 3s/rebs/stls

 

Alarm for 3:09 am to see if he got claimed after I dropped him days ago. It is now 3:30. I do not like the person I have become over the years. 

 

Thomas Bryant is the better player between the three, Wagner and Bertans. Wagner is probably more well-rounded than Bertans but Bertans is a year behind of being an elite specialist to what he does.

What's with his minutes today?

I need him to start breaking out RIGHT NOW otherwise I can't afford to 'stash'

Patience may not be the virtue in shallow 12-team league, as on the ww, there are Harrison, Hunter, WCS, and Crowder.
