For some reason, the hype coming into this year was all about Andre Drummond and how he was gonna punk Greg Monroe and take all his boards and blocks and the such. These same people drafted Drummond in the same round as Monroe and in some cases even higher. They were Monroe haters, just like Mr. Rush on “Too Close For Comfort” and the Federalists.

But now those same peeps who slept on the big guy are flipping out in classic Ted Knight style.

Monroe has been a stud for Mo Cheeks, racking up almost 12 boards and 2 blocks per contest. He’s also scoring 16.3 ppg and hitting 54 percent of his shots. In his most recent game, against Oklahoma City on Friday, he compiled 15 boards and 3 blocks to go along with 20 points – a vintage big man stat line.

So why the hate? The guy wasn’t a freaking maniac right out of the gate like Anthony Davis, but he has improved every year since coming into the league, and now he’s added the Swat to his game, an element that wasn’t really there before. Plus he’s only 23. It’s the prime time of his life!

It’s also prime time to see what else I found down on the blocks.

Anthony Davis – Speaking of The Brow, he continues to put up the kind of stats that would make you pitch a tent when you were a kid scanning the morning box scores at breakfast. Heck, I admit it, I felt a bit of a tingle down below when I saw the 12 boards and 6 blocks he piled up during his 32-point eruption Friday against the Lakers.

Al Horford – Used to be that center you settled for, like when there’s only Smarties and Tootsie Rolls lefts in the bag-o-Halloween candy. No more. Horford is now on par with the Baby Ruths of the league, with 10.5 boards and 2.7 blocks on the season. Although he’s been a little quiet on the glass the last few games, he has swatted eight shots in the last two.

DeAndre Jordan – Someone dumped him in one of my leagues. I rushed to see if Jordan had maybe tripped over Bill Simmons‘ ego at courtside and ripped his ACL but no, actually, someone just didn’t want a guy averaging nearly 14 rpg and more than 2 bpg to go along with a some steals and 56 percent from the floor. He had 18 rebounds and 3 blocks against Houston and a guy named Dwight Howard and 19 against the Magic earlier this week. Even still, something tells me to sell high here. And maybe you could sell him to someone who has …

Tyson Chandler – Ugh. Out 4-6 weeks. Shoulda known this one was coming. Sure, he misses time every year. But this year its early on in the season, and Chandler has been in the league a dozen years, and is he still a double-double guy when he comes back? Don’t know, and I don’t know if you should wait for him. Is he going to morph into Wilt Chamberlain if someone else grabs him?

Kevin Love – In these parts, you better be doin’ something really special, like what those cowboys been doin’ up on Brokeback, to get mention if ya can’t block shots. Well, Love’s yankin’ down almost 15 boards per to go along with all the other points and assists he been roundin’ up, and 15 boards is 15 boards, blocks or no blocks.

Rudy Gobert – If he were white and had a grizzly bear beard, he could be Mark Eaton’s little brother. Or, wait, if he ate half of Salt Lake City he could be Greg Ostertag. Or, wait, Wayne Cooper could be his dad. All right, Rudy Gobert is just Rudy Gobert, and the only reason you should care about this late-first rounder is if you have a dynasty team, reside in a mega-deep league or need to stream a gap on a short-schedule day. Or if you need to call someone a name (“Hey, Gobert!” Sounds mean right?) He’s had two games in the last week where he pulled down 11 and 12 rebounds, and he’s a lock for a block or two a game.

Henry Sims/Tyler Zeller – As ugly as they are, you should put these guys on your watch list if you’re in a deep league. Andrew Bynum’s thinking about throwing a retirement party! The Cavs dug into the closet for Sims on Saturday in the second of a home and home because, well, Bynum will not at any point be able to play in back-to-back games this season, if ever again. And, if Bynum hangs up his basketball shoes for his bowling shoes, Zeller will also be seeing some court time. Raise your hand if you accidentally drafted Tyler thinking he was Cody. What was that? Just me? OK moving on …

Derrick Favors – Would I have taken Favors if he was there at the right time? Sure. Would I have felt good about it if I had drafted him in, say, the second or third round of my draft? No way. I’m still not completely sure the huge bust out is coming. I bet a lot of people with Favors on their roster are feeling the same way, if not more so, after eyeballing his stats over the last week. Now is the time to pounce, my friend. If you look at his last two games, he was only held back from having exceptional lines because of foul trouble. There’s no guarantee that he’ll grow into the beast many project, but it’s worth a risk if you can get him cheap right now.

Al Jefferson – The Clipper Curse is over, and now the Bobcats are the new Clippers. That makes Jefferson … Bill Walton? The return of the Hornets name could turn things around, but only if the teel comes along with it.

Pau Gasol – As bad as he’s been, he’s still getting 10 rebounds and almost a block a game, and that’s all we care about in Razzball’s Boards-N-Blocks Department. In an odd admission, Pau said that he’s slower this year and has to get by on guile and skill instead of bursts. Not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.

Larry Sanders – So far Larry is having one of the most up-and-down starts to a season in recent memory. Inks giant contract. Manages only eleven boards in three games. Becomes a dad. Gets into a bar fight in a nightclub and sprains his thumb. If this pattern continues he’ll score 101 points next week and then accidentally burn down an entire city.

Vitor Faverini – Party’s over. Brad Stevens has decided Kelly Olynyk is prettier than Vitor, so now Vitor and his New Wave hairdo are headed to the seat on the bench next to the injured dudes in $3,000 suits. Got only 2 minutes and 40 seconds in Saturday’s win against the Heat. Ouch.

Little Big Man of the Week Award: Nate Wolters. The Milwaukee Bucks’ reserve point guard was forced into a starting role last week due to injury, and he responded with some nice play – and some surprising stats! Wolters snagged eight rebounds (along with nine points and six assists but whatever) against the Cavaliers, then contributed three rebounds and a block (!) Saturday against the Mavs. Not gonna happen again anytime soon, but way to go Nate! Who wants to go to Friendly’s and get a Conehead sundae? Attaboy!

    Pete, who are some of your favorite buy low/mid-tier Cs right now? Looking to move B. Lopez, either solo or in a package, for a lower-ranked C and a #2 or 3 F in a H2H pts league. Big bonus for dbl-dbls, so a blocks/boards guy who’ll barely scrape 10 pts is more valuable than in most leagues.

      Pete Nice says:

      @Steve Stevenson: Actually, Drummond wouldn’t be a bad guy to target. I also still like Robin Lopez as a lower middle-tier guy.

      Unfortunately a lot of injuries in the middle (Sanders out 6+ is the latest!) has dried out the supply of mid-tier big men.

      Maybe you can take advantage of frustrated owners: I for one am getting fed up with Big Al Jefferson, and maybe there’s someone who will throw Chandler into a deal. Guys might also be getting a little down on Favors and Pekovic, and maybe you could snag one of them.

    Hey Pete, I already asked JB, but since you headlined Monroe, would you trade Teague for Monroe in a 9-cat league, especially if you’re loaded at PG and could use another Forward? Thanks!

      @Joe: I would give Teague for Monroe. I bet JB said no eh?

      • Joe says:
        (link)

        @Pete Nice: Haha, indeed he did, although he did seem to feel it was close. I ended up accepting the trade before games today started. I think they’ll be pretty similar in value going forward, Monroe might even be better if he keeps playing like he has been. Good to hear that at least someone thinks the trade was a good idea :-P

    Hey JB, thanks for the continued council. Would you send Ibaka and Isaiah Thomas for Iggy and Favors? I could possibly replace Thomas with George Hill. Obivously Iggy’s not gonna keep up his level of production but I like Favors and think the combo of Iggy and Favors off sets the loss of ibaka’s defense, and then some
    thanks

      @Yoni R: Not sure if JB will pick up the phone over here but I’ll answer: I’d do it. I was kicking myself for drafting Iggy too early but now I’m patting myself on the arse. I don’t love Ibaka, and I’d take a risk on the potential of Favors over Isaiah — but not by much. I bet JB would say no way on this so I’d check with him.

    I mentioned my situation in a previous post, but I have decided to drop KG for Tobias Harris. I can’t believe it’s come to this. With Horford, Cousins, Plumlee, (The newly resurgent)Markeef Morris and Tristan Thompson (anot to mention Durant) as my Crew of Biggies, I need to add some variety to my yahoo catagory league. And Harris is way too good & roundedto be left out there on the wire.
    Am I wrong parting with KG (Min. limits/ self stated “focus on Defense” etc) over Tristan Thompson? He has been very productive and is playing like 35+ minutes per game in Cle. The deal goes through tomorrow when waivers clear…any last minute advice would be greatly appreciated (again : )

    UPDATE….

    I should have mentioned that I am chock full of PG’s as well. (yet another reason why I need some swing men with multiple attributes)
    My roster includes: John Wall, Kemba Walker, Brandon Knight and Isaiah Thomas.
    …So the one droppable could be either Knight or Thomas (who I love). So for me it comes down to KG, Tristan Thompson or Brandon Knight – for Tobias Harris. What do u think??
    -Sorry If I’m belaboring the point & boring you all : )

    • Pete Nice

      Pete Nice says:
      (link)

      @Li: Not boring at all – cool question and thanks for the follow up.

      I wouldn’t be afraid to dump KG. He’s a bully on the court, and now he’s a bully in fantasy. He’s a part-time guy now, just like Pierce, and yeah he’ll have the occasional good game but if he’s ever going to come close to KG of even last year it won’t be until the spring when Brooklyn decides the games count.

      Personally I think the Harris hype is overblown, only because he hasn’t played yet. However, I have a rule about fantasy: It’s for fun (unless it’s for money). And if you love Harris, and he’s out there, and KG is the only thing standing between you and him, dump that Devil-looking mofo on his rear.

      • Li says:
        (link)

        @Pete Nice:

        I agree to the extent that people are drooling iver a guy that hasnt seen any minutes yet or even gotten on the floor, however, every single list preseason and updated player rankings have Harris pretty high up in their rankings. When he cane iver from Mil. last year he out up some gaudy numbers to finish the season. I guess this is the ason for all the pre-season hype. Im gonna go for it. Kg is playing 22 minutes a game, and u are absolutley right…..he won’t ‘play for real’ till tye spring. Thanks for the advice, I was leaning that way but needed a push over the edge as it were.

      @Chasles:
      Who are your potential targets at the PG position? I would be a bit worried about a lack of depth at Center if all your left with is Sanders. I have him too, and im sure he’a bound to bounce back / heal. I just hope its not a situation where he has fallen out of the new coach’s ‘good graces’ I doubt it though. Hes making millions of $.

          @Chasles: @Li: I agree with Li’s advice – you’re real thin in the bigs department. If your wire is loaded with F/C’s I guess you’re good to go otherwise you’ll have Love and nothing else.

          I’m also not so sure I dump Sanders outright. I’m thinking he’s going to get his crap together when he gets back. At the least, I’d use him as an asset in a trade — I for one would be willing to ride out his injury.

    Any advice on what I should do with my team? Things are starting off a little tragic in my H2H 16 deep league, lost the first week 6-3 and lost last week 5-4, things not off to a great start this week, what’s really killing me is Roses shit performance, and T Harris being out with injury + i’m carrying Alex Lens sorry behind. This is my current team.

    Ty Lawson Den – PG
    Derrick Rose Chi – PG
    Victor Oladipo Orl – PG,SG
    Gordon Hayward Uta – SG,SF
    Jeff Green Bos – SG,SF,PF
    Dorell Wright Por – SG,SF
    Caron Butler Mil – SF
    Tobias Harris Orl – SF,PF
    Marcus Morris Pho – PF
    Roy Hibbert Ind – C
    Omer Asik Hou – PF,C
    Patrick Patterson Sac – PF,C
    Alex Len Pho – C

    Problem is I’m not overly strong in any category, I feel i need to make some big moves, even considering trading Hibbert as his blocks are great, but no one else in my team really adds to blocks, so with his high value i could get someone who would benefit my team more.

    Open to any suggestions you may have!

    Cheers

      @Mr Bell: I’ve been in this situation before and I think you got to think about rebuilding fast, and I’d do it with guys who have more upside rather than give up your known quantities. Too much risk involved in keeping guys who “might” be studs as opposed to ones who are.

      I think you have to do some two- and three-for-ones, ones where you might be taking a loss but overall getting the best player in the deal. I don’t see any deals where you could get a top shelf guy but maybe you could get a second-tier player by packaging, say, Hayward and Wright. Then use the holes created by the 2- and 3-for-ones to grab guys with upside off the wire.

      Might have to cut bait on injured guys to keep you afloat while you find/wait on the wire guys. Dump Harris in a deal. I personally might think about waiving him if I was really desperate. Some people are really high on him though so maybe you could get something for him.

      I’d specify my keepers — maybe Hibbert, Olapido, Lawson? — and then put everyone else on the table. Looks like you’re kind of stuck with Rose now. Ugh.

      Hope that helps.

      Or you could shoot lower and get Josh Smith and maybe you could steal someone by getting him to throw in another guy.

    9 Cat Roto on a weekly basis. I’m at the bottom of FG, turns and blocks. Well, since Al Jeff is back, I’m hoping he can address 2 of my 3 problems. But since he has a bum ankle, I’m thinking of sending him off together with either Ilyasova or Tobias Harris for Lillard. Once I got Lillard, I’m sending Westbrook or Wade off to a shot blocker. Am I giving up too early for Westbrook? I don’t think his % and turns will go down. Your thoughts?

    my other options will be:
    b. Wade + Al Jeff for Bosh + Lillard
    c. Westbrook + Al Jeff for Bosh + Lillard
    d. Westbrook/Wade for Lillard

    I love the boldness! It’s fantasy people, make some freaking trades!

    I like the AlJeff and Ilyasova/Harris for Lillard deal the best. Not sure you’d have to settle for a two-for-one there but if you have someone good in mind for the open spot pull the trigger. I’d rather trade Wade than Westbrook at this point for the shot blocker. Better be blocks AND boards you’re getting back.

    • John says:

      @Pete Nice: @Pete Nice: My trading partner told me he’ll check it first. If that doesn’t go through. Is wade + Al Jeff for Bosh and Lillard okay? Somebody dropped Wilson Chandler, should I claim him off the waivers?

    Hey Pete,

    Maybe I’m just getting bored with my team, but i think I can probably try and consolidate some of my decent big men into someone much stronger maybe in a 2-for-1 (or even 3-1 as the waiver wire is overflowing with guys i’d be happy to own). Right now I’ve got Brook Lopez, Aldridge, Z-Bo, Plumlee, Tristan Thompson and picked up Bargniani after that breakout game last Friday (maybe i grabbed him a little prematurely, but cutting Faverani was a no brainer at this point). So far in my 10 team 8 cat H2H league, no one has been willing to trade. But injuries and DNPs are starting to pile up for some guys, so I think now might be a good time to start making more aggressive offers.

    If I offer Z-Bo, Tristan and Bargs for Horford and garbage to a guy that has zero depth (im talking like Amare and McGee) behind horford and ibaka, think I got a chance he accepts or am i just being hopeful? Anyone else you think I could package those guys for?

    Sorry for the long post, but thanks for any advice.

  16. Pete Nice

    Pete Nice says:

    I dunno man I kind of think you’re aiming low with Horford. At least try Plumlee in that deal instead of Z-Bo. He’s been playing great, and how can you get bored of Z-Bo!!

    • zshaft says:
      (link)

      @Pete Nice: Thanks, Pete. I just wish Z-Bo put up some stats other than just pts and boards. If i make it Horford and Tobias Harris does that change things? Or what about if i swap out Ibaka for Horford and tell him to give me anyone he wants along side Ibaka? Better?

    In my ESPN league, I am considering trading Jeff Teague to a guy who has NO PG’s (Steve Blake is his top PG). I am asking for Gordon Hayward & Wesley Matthews for Teague/and either Amir Johnson, Harrison Barnes, Reggie Jackson, Kelly Olynyk, J.J. Hickson, or Robin Lopez
    Which of these secondary options make it a fair deal (for both me and my potential trading partner) I LOVE Hayward,, but I want to make sure Im getting fair market value-as Teague is a beast & climbing most rankings lists and looks to become a top 10 pg.

    Pete Nice says:

    I don’t love Hayward too much but I will swallow that because, since you do, that’s all that matters. It it’s really love, and he’s your guy, you should do what it takes within reason to get him. I think that’s a 50s tune by some girl group.

    Anyway, I’d part with Jackson, Amir, Lopez, Olynyk or Barnes, in that order. Again, I don’t love that deal.

    new trade question:

    Should I part with Demarcus Cousins for Aaron Affalo and Tristan Thompson or perhaps offer Teague instead. I need depth badly and both of the players I’m targeting have been putting up big numbers every night (ex: Affalo and Thompson are averaging about 45 pts. a night in a ESPN league) Cousins, has had a few sub par games, but when he’s on he reaches the upper 70,s or even cracks 80. I wouldnt typically consider trading such a beast, but outside of my Starting-5, My squad drops off significantly and I need depth.
    Im just worried about the potential rise of the Magic’s SG as well as the Varejo/Bynum possible log jam. But Thompson is playing 35 min and avering like 12 and 12. and Affalo is avg. 36 min: 20 pts/5 Reb/5Asst. Do I pull the trigger ?
    P.S. I might have to add a low grade bench player to sweeten the deal (a-la Reggie Jackson, Robin Lopez, Marcus Morris, Olynyk (i like his upside though)
    Appreciate any thoughts and ideas. Thanks. -Li

      @Li:

      heres my huge ESPN Team (To provide the entire picture)
      John Wall, Evan Turner, Paul George, Cousins, Andre Drummond, Teague, Chandler Parsons,
      Ilyasova, Eric Gordon, Miles Plumlee. Patrick Beverley, Reggie Jackson, J.J. Hickson, Harrison Barnes, Andrea Bargnani, Kelly Olynyk, Amir Johnson, Robin Lopez, Marcus Morris, Steve Adams, and( Chase Buddinger on IR)
      -So after my top guys, & a couple solid bench players I could certainly use some added depth to fill out the roster that plays 14 roster spots every night (w/6 UTIL spots).
      After seeing my team (if you didn’t doze off yet), Do I sacrifice a stud in order to add two very good starting caliber players??
      -Li

        @Li:
        wow its late. affallo could be traded as they groom the new rookie SG, and Thompson could see his 35 min/gm go down when and if Bynum gets back to form/Varejo & Bennett. Im gonna raise my asking price.

        wow its late. sorry for stuffing the forum with late night, half-crazed scuttlebutt. : )

    9 CAT roto. Who is a better fantasy player, Ibaka or Howard? Is Wade-Ilyasova too much for Ibaka or Howard?

      @John: Ibaka. I’d try something a little less than Wade to go with Ilyasova, and then try just Wade-for-Serge straight up. Then send him the pair if all else fails.
