Don't be shellfish...Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+

PGs depth suddenly overfloweth from the wire, with a lot of guys on their choppers… chopping(?) their way onto fantasy squads.  Listen, I would make some sort of better parallel with that show, but I haven’t gotten to it yet.  Takes a lot of effort to plow through a show!  I friggin’ had to stop the new Arrested Development in season 4.  Yikes.  And speaking of arrested development, the Clips sure got a buster when Chris Paul went down with a separated shoulder Friday night, and through a series of updates will be out “up to six weeks.”  The trainer asked Paul if he was filing for divorce with his shoulder, but nah, just separated.  Huge blow to the Clippers, but it was a “rush to your nearest internet device” moment for fantasy owners to add Darren Collison.  On Friday night, in JB’s RCL 2 I missed out, then when deciding who to drop for him in RCL 1, I missed him by about 10 seconds.  Thank’s a lot Your Mom Says Hi!  A Hill ‘O Beans bout to be refried!  Yeah, terrible smack talk, I know…  If you’re not checking out the comments every night, all sorts of updates get fantasy spins throughout the evening, like El Burro breaking the news while watching his Clips’ title hopes get separated.  I like Collison a lot, and unless you singularly need assists, I like him over the other big breakout PG from the weekend.  I think he gives you 16/3/6/2 a game until Paul is done with marriage counseling.  The 35 minutes he’ll play a night should make those numbers pretty realistic.  Here’s what else I saw over the weekend in hoops action:

Kendall Marshall – Did I get you to click the article just to see who the other big breakout PG was?!  Eh, unless you watched nothing but NFL playoffs, you probably could surmise.  Racking up huge dimebags that make Steve Blake look like James Franco compared to Marshall’s Walter White, the new Lakers starting PG went 20/15 and 9/17 on Friday and Sunday.  As a Chapel Hill fan I of course like Marshall a ton, but I would rather Collison’s all-around game to the big dimebag numbers.  I was actually shocked Marshall had 2 treys in three straight before only one last night, as he wasn’t that great of a perimeter shooter at UNC, but hey, people change!  Hairstyles change!  I’ll miss you most of all Scarecrow!  10 points if you know that reference…

Pau Gasol – Playing like he wouldn’t mind going to Cleveland.  Not sure if they lied and said Cabo, so when he steps off the plane – if it goes through –  it’ll be a rude awakening.  But hey, if Gasol goes to the Cavs, a Kyrie Irving, Gasol, LeBron James core in Clevelnd next year?  Gus Ayonin’!  Huge 23/17/8 from Gasol on Friday and 25/10/5/1/3 on Sunday.  Could not be more of a sell high in fantasy leagues.

Jon Leuer – Whoa, welcome back! After dropping Leuer and Leuer on the Grizzlies depth chart, got 22 minutes for a 23/8/1/1/0 line with two treys shooting 8-13.  This was a blowout, but 16 points were dropped in by halftime.  Ed Davis has been playing well (17 mins for 17/11 last night and usually plays more than Leuer) on top of James Johnson showing great versatility and Marc Gasol returning soon from knee injury has me wanting none of these guys (other than stashing Gasol) in a 12-teamer right now.  Johnson gave us a nice run, and if there’s injuries would be a no-brainer pickup again.

Jerryd Bayless – Traded for Courtney Lee.  Since JB can’t hit threes (that JB!  I’m a pretty good shooter!), the Grizz get Lee to pop some treys and Bayless can roam around and show off a Celtics green headband.  Not much of a fantasy impact, although as of this writing I put $1 on Nick Calathes in our REL league who might get bigger PG minutes for those in 20-teamers like we do.

C.J. Miles – Playing well lately with double-digit scoring in 4 of the last 5 games and 21/6/3/3 last night.  I’m not a huge fan, but could give you some spot scoring should Jarrett Jack (back spasms) and Irving (knee) be out again tomorrow.  The trainer was like, “hey Jarrett, where does it hurt?” and Jack was like, “wahhhhhhhhhhhhh!  I’m Jarrett Jack!”

Amir Johnson vs. Jonas Valanciunas – I feel like only one of these guys can have a good game at a time.  Amir with a big bounce back of 17/7/2/0/2 on Friday and 17/8/2/0/3 last night while Luminescent Lithuanian goes only 7/7/0/0/0 and 17/5/0/0/1.  Right after a great LL run too… What are these Craptors doing to me?!

Andrew Bogut – Just like how the Warriors can’t lose, Bogut can’t stop multi-cat.  Rainbow line!  15/11/2/2/4.  I love Bogut.  I would go down under.  Hah – too far…

Perry Jones – I mentioned last week I thought he had a little James Johnson upside and a decent 6/2/2/2/1 line in 21 minutes for the Thunder last night.  Given it was a blowout, but he’s a guy on my radar (who can also pop threes), especially if Kendrick Perkins and/or Nick Collison go down.

Tyson Chandler – Apparently breathing the same air as Pau Gasol and also got an upper respiratory infection.  “Hey, tall guys, how’s the weather up there?!”  I was taught to spit on them and tell them it’s raining…

Tim Hardaway Jr. – I’ll let Slim address this.  Sad he’s getting phased out…

Shawn Marion – Limped around after the game.  It was a rough one for him after a nice stretch.  Stay tuned on his injury status throughout this week.

Kenneth Faried – Welcome back Manimal!  A really rough stretch for a long while from Faried.  The solution?  Go against a Mike D’Antoni team.  Sheesh.  17/13/1/2/2 near rainbow.  All in only 27 minutes.  Manimal beast mode!

Timofey Mozgov – If you didn’t peruse the 137-115 box score from the Nugs/Lakers, there is a lot of crazy.  Like Healthcare.Mozgov going for 20/7/1/2/2, only one away from a rainbow himself!  Shot 8-10.  And, not to undersell, he took an effing 3-point shot!  I don’t care if it was a halfcourt heave!  Hilarious box score.

Darrell Arthur – When it rains, it pours, and the Denver D.A. was a stat away from a rainbow as well.  4/11/6/1/2.  Man the Lakers need a new defensive mind…

Brandon Knight - Had one meh game on Thursday, then a great game on Saturday for 8-12 FG (1-1 3PTM 8-9 FT) 25/4/8/1/1.  Dem fightin’ numbers!  Pieces keep coming together with nice FG%, lower TOs (although he did have 4 in this one is under 2 a game the past 8) and the out-of-position boards – enjoy the ride!  And you better not jerk him around, Drew!

Reggie Jackson – A career-high 27 Pts for a 27/2/2/1 line last night.  Shot 9-12, hit all 3 treys, Maury Ballstein goes “That’s what I’m talkin’ about!”

Steven Adams – Love this guy.  Hurts his ankle, then tweets out “Just a flesh wound.”  Man, I hope that’s a Monty Python reference!

Tiago Splitter – Out 3-5 weeks with a shoulder injury.  Basically you can copy and paste what happened to Chris Paul.  Really not much in the fantasy implications, Boris Diaw should get a tad of a boost though, and should be playing tomorrow after getting strep throat.  Who he Frenchin’, Tony Parker?

Larry Sanders – 7/2/0/0/1 with 3 TOs and Gary Neal yelled at him saying Sanders should try and earn his money.  Boom!  Gary Neal talkin’ smack!  Sanders then took a swing at him and went after him with a broken champagne bottle.  He’ll undergo another thumb surgery and is out 4-6 weeks.

Chris Douglas-Roberts – Is somehow starting.  Went 10/4/2/0/1 in 36 preposterous minutes.  Preposterous in that he was out there that long.  But hey, the Bobcats won and he looks to be the guy for right now.  Worth a look in the deepest of leagues.

Pero Antic – Had a big game on Friday for 16/7 with trey treys, then 9/7/1/0/1 with three treys on Saturday.  Consistently playing 20+ minutes and can give ya some big man ThrAGNOF.

Gerald Green – Speaking of ThrAGNOF, the poster child is back!  Eric Bledsoe is out for a week+, so Green will get a couple of starts with 24 Pts/4 treys upside like what we saw Saturday.  Racked up 5 Stls too, plus 4 on Thursday.  Racking up the swipes.

Giannis Antetokounmpo – See, this was what I was worried about… Drew getting all rookie-angry as he counts down the days until he’s fired.  Only 14 minutes on Saturday for 0/3/0/0/0 and 4 TOs.  Yikes.  I’ve always said I like him and his upside, but just knew nights like this would happen and why I haven’t recommended him as highly as some other fringe-guys.

Alexis Ajinca – Bigs from Europe – attack!  17/7/1/1/1 in 32 minutes on Saturday.  Has looked good the past few Pelicans games I’ve seen him play and with Jason Smith out with a shoulder injury and Ryan Anderson recovering from a scary cervical stinger, Ajinca could be pretty useful in deeper formats.

 

Next Game: I’ve got Golden State at Milwaukee tomorrow.  Over/under win margin for GS?  17?  I’m crossing my fingers to see another great Brandon Knight game.  I hope everyone is enjoying getting back into their routines and good luck in week 11!

      @Slim: I had to use the google machine but if your talking about a 30 year old Omar Sharif movie then 10 points isn’t nearly enough!

      I’ve been pondering, “What are the chances Marshall overtakes Blake and Farmar while they’re down?” This situation screams Linsanity 2.0 to me since it’s in such a big market. I’m starting to think he’s more valuable then Collison just because there’s a chance for something during playoff time.

      OKC only drafts good players, I like Perry Jones alot too.

      Hardaway saw a bunch of court time with Melo down. He was OK… Knicks never had a shot to win any of those games. But it was still a good sign. If Melo, JR, or Shump is traded or injured Hardaway would get a very large role. In a dynasty I’m still not budging. In a redraft you can wait for that to happen. Even with big minutes Hardaway would still be borderline in a 12 teamer. Right now he’s Jodie Meeks without the minutes. We can do better.

      There are no negatives for Steven Adams. Quickly turning into one of my favorite players and it would take an act of God to steal him from me in the REL.

      I’m siding with Larry Sanders here. He got in Neals face because Neal wasn’t playing hard. Neal got defensive. I thought Sanders showed leadership on a team lacking it. Oh and Gary Neal has no idea what it takes to earn $44 Mil.

      I’m disappointed I missed out on Antic in the REL. It was stupid. I knew better. I got Ajinca for $7. Got me some more upside! Like that’s what I really needed.

      Antetok… Oh and Ross had a dud last night too. I’ve got a little rule I follow. “Once is and outlier, twice gets my attention, 3 times is a trend” That’s 1…

    For the indefinite duration of Ryan Anderson’s injury, who is the better pickup between Ajinca, Smith, and Aminu?

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Shaqtin’ACoon: The Ryan Anderson injury is scary. He may be out a while. Jason Smith also doesn’t have a timetable with his shoulder injury so for now he’s not really in the picture. Aminu vs Ajinca. I would take Aminu 1st, his upside is pretty limited but his role is secure. Ajinca is a huge wildcard. The biggest problem he has is foul trouble. His per-36 fouls are something like 8.0 per game. That’s going to severely limit his playing time. When Jason Smith returns I’d take him over both, easily.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Shaqtin’ACoon: I would take the chance on Ajinca. I know Aminu has had some decent games when given minutes, but I would want Ajinca’s big man upside.

    Is the movie reference from Thie Wizard of Oz? I’m not sure because I haven’t seen it sober/non-synched with Dark Side of the Moon in about a dozen years. I don’t really have a fantasy question, I’d just like to say that Larry Drew is a total abomination as a coach. SET A GOD DAMNED ROTATION, A-HOLE! Seriously, my high school coach could do a better job and he spent half of our practices talking about hot chicks he nailed in college.

      @Clyde Prompto: Haha nope – Top Secret! Great underrated comedy. Drew is unreal, nothing is working, so when his best players like Knight and Middleton helped get a couple wins, he limits their minutes. Haha

        @JB Gilpin: Damn, I really wanted those 10 points!

    10 team H2H 9 cat
    How concerned at this point, should i be that i haven’t won a h2h matchup since before Christmas?
    I also have dropped 6.5 games in the overall standings in that period.

    I’ve just traded my Beal for Calderon which goes through Tuesday, and this is my lineup post trade.

    Lillard Harden Calderon Igudola Ibaka Favors Hibbert Pekovic Valancinuas Nelson
    BN – Jo.Crawford/Kwahi/DeRozan

    Anything glaring you would improve now? Or just ride out this cold streak?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Winless since before Christmas: I definitely wouldn’t be happy, but I wouldn’t be panicking. At least you haven’t been blown out, or else I’d think you would’ve dropped further. I like the Calderon move. Shores up an underrated guy for one of the most injury prone. Calderon is sometimes brittle too, but he’s camping on the 3-point line now. I really like you team, just needs a few more dimes. Wouldn’t do anything too drastic. Kawhi should get it goin

      • Winless since before Christmas says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin:

        How dire is another low to dimes/steals guy for me in the immediate? Don’t know how much Crawford will be affected by the potential Rondo return/Bayless in the dimes department.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Winless since before Christmas: Not that dire, just my immediate thought. Calderon helps a lot. Crawford indeed is a good sell high if you can get anything

          • Winless since before Christmas says:
            (link)

            @JB Gilpin:

            Mainly thinking Crawford because my issues standing wise were – FG%/AST/STL/TO and i’ve dropped Beal for Calderon. With Crawford being of the <.385 FG% club the last 14 days also, don't know his leash for me.

            Do I need another FG%/STL guy on top of the addition of calderon? As Favors is my team leader in SPG last 14 days.Or does the loss of Beal mean focus on FG%/PTS? Even with Hibbert struggling in reb, don't see the need of another big with Favors/JV/Pekovic/Ibaka/Hibbert unless I were to get another blocker.

            Give the addition of Calderon the end of month, and see where i am then? or try and be more proactive now while i am essentially in a sell low on most guys over the 2 week period I have struggled?

            • JB Gilpin

              JB Gilpin says:
              (link)

              @Winless since before Christmas: I wouldn’t do anything too drastic right now, hopefully Calderon boosts what you need and see if the wire has a big name emerge until then

      @mUshi: trading a #4 & 69 ranked for a #5 #19 ranked in standard espn. Plus with the pau inj risk id prob do it. Guess it just depends on categorical needs I suppose..

    Do you see Marshall as someone worth a pickup with Blake and possibly Nash coming back soon?

    Roster is a bit flush and not sure if I have someone to drop. Thanks!

    Wall, Chandler, Jeff Green, DeRozan, Blatche, Dirk, Valanciunas, Ibaka, Teague, Lin, IT2, Lillard, Pekovic, Pierce, Frye

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Charlie: I know Frye is hot right now, but all his value is in threes, which is why I say Threes Ain’t got no face (ThrAGNOF!) I’d lose him or Blatche for Marshall. Blatche I think is a little overrated right now.

  7. matt says:

    Who’d you rather Jru or Lawson? Lawson is heating back up and jru is showing down. Other PG is IT2 … 2 PG owned(max roster) Other noteables Bledsoe,Jameer,Lin,B.Knight. Im worried Pauls owner will end up having Lawson since he’s obviously the best outta this group. Ok, last one Korver or Manu or Butler? Other sg is Matthews again 2 max

    In my 14 team h2h keeper league (we keep 5) I was offered Batum for Favors and Teague. I don’t think I would lose out that much in assists since Batum chips in a few dimes as well. Anyway i would probably maybe deal harden cousins for jennings davis. Is this worth doin if I go after Batum?Team is below.

      @Ryan: Yeah and Jennings would bring you in some lost assists. So it’d sorta be getting Batum/Jennings/AD for Favors/Teague/Harden/Cousins. Love having AD as a keeper I like it looking at all the moves combined.

    I got a team with Lillard, IT2, Burke, Evans, J.Green, Deng, D.Lee, Ibaka, Valanciunas, and M.Gasol
    Standard 9-cats.

    Redick is sitting there on the wire. Should I be contemplating an add/drop to stash him?

    P.S. Why is it that every time we’re ready to cut ties with Jeff Green he gives us the faintest, most teasing glimmer of hope?

      @Tony: 1 – Yeah three more this month… I would guess he does 2 of them depending on day-to-day health. 2 – Impossible to know, the Bucks are a disgrace. I would guess no, total guess. Never a three! Haha, the first time I saw that when helping Grey with comments for a few months last year, I just shrugged it off, then the second time I was like “what the hell!?” Good times.

        @JB Gilpin: ha yep, good old “and there is no C”

        Wade has been pissing me off all year, then he goes and plays in a back to back this weekend, every game he’s in he’s dunking and running around like a wild man, which leads me to believe his injuries aren’t that bad and they’re totally milking it….. I just doubt they lift the no back to backs altogether, tho it seems Wade might be able to force his way into a few from now on?

        Rotoworld says Hensons out tuesday but wants to return for the weekend stand, i’m sitting him because my leagues a weekly league, still debating whether to hold the guy at $9 for the future, or package him as the centerpiece to reel in a few pieces, if he’s playing and getting 20+ mins it will be tough to deal him, the future is bright, if the Bucks get smart and fire Larry Drews dumbass….

    Wait, so you HAVENT seen all of S4 of Arrested? You’re killing me, Buster!

    Sneaky Wizard of Oz ref. Instead of my 10pts, could you tell me what kinda numbers by J Butler would warrant me picking him off the FA pool in place of say my Pierce or Island Volley Ball? All these trade rumors in Chi have me wondering about his rest of season potential

Plus Michael Sera looks weird as hell. Not quite Wizard of Oz, it’s Top Secret! I doubt Butler gets moved, I think he can be a 50ish kind of player. Needs to stay healthy though. Hah – Island Volley Ball? I should probably get that…

        Wilson! Chandler!! Ah forget it..

        So stat wise, when should I go grab butler? When he’s posting a 16/5/3 consistent line? Pierce is nice right now and as we discussed yesterday, Wilson is mostly hit and sometimes miss. One would have to go should butler play good

        Not gonna lie, had to work at watching s4 also. But it’s got great payoffs and rewatchability! It was always gonna be the weakest season.. C’mon! Want some awesomely weird Cera action, watch This Is The End

        @JB Gilpin: what about Cousins, Lillard, Beal for George, IT, Monta

          @TR: I like that one too, like getting the best guy in the deal

    I’m in first place in a 10 team, H2H league (9 cat) and wanted to enhance my team a little… thoughts?

    MCW
    Joe Johnson
    Paul George
    Millsap
    Valanciunas
    Lowry
    Drummond
    Reggie Jackson
    Parker
    Deng
    Knight
    Wilson Chandler
    Marshall
    Henson (IR)

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Dom: MCW and Lowry are both injury risks and I think there’s a high probability MCW gets shut down sometime in the fantasy playoffs. On top of having Parker, I would look to trade for a stable PG with a better shot at great playoff production if any teams are looking to deal

    Hey JB!

    Aminu, Lamb or Humphries?

    Aiming more towards Lamb or Aminu.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Michael: Sadly, while I should agree with that, if needing immediate value it’s tough to not take HUmphries. Even though he is a joke. Then Aminu vs. Lamb comes down to needs

    Olladipo and it2 for unibrow. Which side wins?

    • HWY68 says:
      (link)

      @Corey:

      I know JB will chime in but as an Anthony Davis owner I vouch for the unibrow. By almost every fantasy metric, he’s elite. Top 10 with top 3 upside.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Corey: Yeah I gotta agree with above. Love IT2 and Oladipo is a great buy low, but AD is worth more.

  19. Mike says:

    What do you think about this trade?

    I get: Klay Thompson
    I give: Tim Duncan

    I’m looking to boost my threes but i’m afraid that i’ll start losing on rebounds and blocks

    My roster: jennings, ellis, dragic, rubio, ariza, eric gordron, lebron, t. harris, ibaka, drummond, hawes, valanciunas, tim duncan

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Mike: I think you could boost your threes by streaming and would hold off. I’m not a big Thompson guy. If Ariza stays cold another game or two or if an injury opens something up, you could daily stream treys

    A hahahahah Sanders then went after him with a champagne bottle and is out 4-5 weeks a hahahahah. Bucks are jokesters. Except master pimp knight of course.

    Hey JB,

    Brandan Wright was a preseason sleeper but has underwhelmed lately.

    10 team h2h – drop Wright for Henson? I’m in first by two games.

    Keep up the awesome work!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @HWY68: Well Wright breaking his shoulder really had him losing out on most of that upside. I would indeed go Henson even with an unsure role. In a 10 team, there should be some other good options too, but I like Henson the best out of the two. Thanks man!

    I was really surprised I was able to get Collison in the RCL. I almost didn’t bother checking for him when I heard about the injury cause I figured he’d be gone already. Nice to know I beat you by 10 seconds though, it’s a good thing I knew who I was gonna drop right away for once.

    ” I’ll miss you most of all Scarecrow!”, I LOVE Top Secret! That movie is hilarious beyond reason. It’s not quite Airplane, but it’s close, and I will never look at 2 guys wearing a cow costume quite the same again. Ha, I love that movie and I may just have to watch it again now that you’ve brought it up JB.

      @A Hill O’ Beans: Hah yeah I was waffling between Brewer and someone, liking Brewer is gettin those steals again. Oh well.

      Haha – glad I got a Top Secret fan! Agree, not quite Airplane, but awesome in its own way. Haha when the cow had the boots on – awesome! Loved the Pac man part. And when the guy falls off the building and turns out to be made on china. Hahahaha – Razzball movie night!

    MCW or jrue holiday?

      @CDS: Holiday ROS. Consistency + I think MCW gets shut down at some point

      • CDS says:

        @JB Gilpin: Do you think he would accept that trade? My MCW for his jrue..

        MCW
        Lowry
        IT2
        Wall
        Dragic
        Derozan
        Klay
        Lebron
        Boozer
        Ibaka
        Pekovic
        Sanders
        Plumlee
        Should I add someone else or leave my team how it is? I didn’t start the season that well but I’ve been doing good the past 5 weeks

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @CDS: I don’t think it’s bad to offer at all. I wouldn’t do anything drastic if you’re winning, but that move will help ya out come late in the season

    You see Elton Brand taking over C for the Hawks?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @m1chael: Eh, I mean he’ll get starts I think he and Antic will mix and match and play comparable minutes, with one starting one day the other the next

    • m1chael says:
      (link)

      @m1chael: Also I think Brewer is back. So now that Brewer is in the picture. I’ll pick up Humps or Brand? Brewer or Lamb? Need help with 3’s surprisingly for next week.

      I’ll be dropping James Johnson/Mike Scott.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @m1chael: Straight 3s I would say Lamb, but like Brewer overall more. Daily moves? You could just stream that spot day-to-day

        • m1chael says:
          (link)

          @JB Gilpin: Not daily. H2H yahoo 9 cats

            @m1chael: I’d still say Lamb for the threes, Brewer for all around

    It was just announced that Luol Deng is being traded to the Cavs…

    what do you think of Deng’s fantasy outlook for the future?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Ricky: Takes a hit. Better playmakers offensively on the Cavs. I’ve never been a huge Deng guy, but I don’t think he’ll gel that well, personally

  26. Shaft says:
    (link)

    Deng to the Cavs for Bynum and some picks. I assume this makes butler a must hold. Any other implications you think?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Shaft: Deng takes a hit, as does Waiters and Miles. Mike Dunleavy can continue being a deep league scorer. But yeah, not much, all aforementioned stuff not critical.

  27. Colli looked pretty damn nice in his first start for the Clips and my fantasy squads. Happy with it. Sorta what I expected with some added hot sauce- versus an under-manned Magic squad.

    Lakers are retarded for not making Bynum for Gasol happen. Congrats to Bulls. This could cripple Laker nation… says the Jordan Hill owner.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @EL BURRO: Yeah man he looked awesome. I was right there with ya on wanting him. Wish I had nabbed him in more leagues. Laker nation sighs in regret…

  28. Lasandro says:
    (link)

    Knee jerk-reactioned a Pierce drop for a Dunleavy pickup. Not too silly.. Right? Also, Manu is still on the wire. If Dunleavy or Butler don’t perform in their next two games, is either of them worth a drop for Manu? Or Pierce or W Chandler? Think Butler may be the best of the bunch should be hit his stride

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Lasandro: Ehhhh I woulda held Pierce there. Dunleavy is a wild carrd, so a few bad games and Manu pickup looks good. I still would go Butler then Pierce above them all though, unless something drastic happens

    Would you drop bargnani for my man Andrew Bogut or Anderson varejao? both are on the waivers, or should I hold the wet noodle?

      @Thunder from down under: I would grab Varejao. Love his upside for the duration of the year
