Elfrid Payton 2019-2020 Outlook

Recommended Posts

Hes on 24 mins rn so his minutes steadily going up, don't know why everyone was freaking out earlier, he's just come back from a lengthy injury so he's more than likely on a mins restriction

14-4-5 with a steal in 29 min. He missed a few easy layups as well (I'll attribute that to rust). I think he has cemented himself as the main PG on this team.

My guess is he'll start within the next 2-3 games. He's looking pretty winded on the court though, so he might come off the bench a couple more. But yeah they just won a game with him. Could've been two games if Randle hit the final FT and forced OT last game after Payton drove the comeback. The Knicks would've imploded this game if Ntilikina or DSJ were closing, and lost by like 20-30

Team looks so much better in terms of pace and flow w/ Payton. More focused, intense, smarter, all of the above, etc. Payton still made several missed layups and 5 TOs, but he's always been an a good slasher and always had a good-to-great assist-TO ratio. Should improve on these as the season progresses

They trusted him to play the lions share of the 2nd half as well as all of OT so those are great signs, hopefully cemented himself as the starter

👀 thank god for overtime... gives coach miller more insight into elfrids ability to control the pace... he's more vocal in directing the players during the offence.

Blurb hating.


I was wondering why he was being dropped en masse after such a positive game. Really goes to show how much of an effect those blurbs have.

I think for us who’ve played fantasy for a while now the experience comes in handy. We all know what the lord elf can do and we are just waiting for that opportunity so he can shine again. People who follow the blurbs like a bible will miss on this

There's also a lot of <10 team league teams, so it wouldn't make much sense to hold onto Elfrid if there are other guys like Griffin or Mitch Robinson on the wire that have the same or greater potential (I can't imagine who'd be on the wire in 8 or 10 team leads, I'm in a 16 teamer)

This guy is gonna end up being a really good pickup for anyone that stuck with him, hes coming back from a lengthy injury and dropping nice stats already, once he gets in his groove he'll win you games

We have all the evidence we need at this point. But two more: Payton highest +/- in the game (+19). Knicks first 2-game winning streak of the season

He didn't look as winded this game. Could be starting within 1-2 games if the Knicks have an inkling of rationality

on board. Scooped up in as many leagues as possible (this little Elf on the Shelf has won me championships previously so I have a soft spot for him)

The Knicks seem waayyyy better with him on the court and running the show
