Special Friday morning edition! Well, special in that we’re a day behind… But we get to kick your weekend off strong! Who said your weekend doesn’t start on Friday… On today’s show, we catch up on all the players returning from injury including Gary Harris, Derrick Favors and Mike Conley, then get into some possible 12er waiver adds like Luol Deng. We then preview tonight’s games, make our 30-point challenge picks, then wrap up the week at the movies with a Fantasy Movie League update.

Floor General?! And no, this article isn’t about the sales of Steph Curry ‘s “Floor General” shoe.

I’m not even sure this is what they even call point guards nowadays, with the game moving more away from traditional point guards and onto combo guards and point forwards.

After focusing on best teams to face for big men stats, let’s take a look at the best teams to face when looking for categories that suit point guards.

Man, what a night for highlight-reel dunks!

GIFs so nice I had to put up twice! Wait, that didn’t really work… But yeah, telling everyone that Gordon is cuttable sure made me feel great while writing the notes this morning! Stupid Clippers getting Lob City-ed against them! Taste of their own medicine! Career game for Gordon, going 13-21 FG (4-8 3PTM 3-6 FT) for 33/7/2/0/0. Actually, ya know, that’s not really the best line. 3 turnovers, no D stats, and 50% FT shooting… I feel a little better now re-thinking it, and good thing highlight-reel plays aren’t bonuses! Although I wish they were for my Semaj in REL! Feel free to scoop up Gordon in any leagues as I’m sure he was a popular drop, but I still wouldn’t be losing key assets for him. Let’s see if he can carry this success a few more games, fix the FT issue, and deliver on the D stats we’re know he’s physically capable of. 0.8 STL/0.6 BLK – lower stocks than last year – in an expansion of minutes?! Where’s the beef?! Hopefully I give you more meat to chew on in the notes today! Here’s what else happened last night in Fantasy Basketball action:

(Yep, I just find that pic funny, and yup, I was amused that Tony Parker made it into any of my content.  Don’t hate.)

Howdy RazzNation!  I’m going to use the format from last week to keep a running list of current pickups for each category, new additions will have an asterisk (*) beside them, so  you can keep up to date on the latest hot adds.  I will also remove players who stop being productive, or move over that 50% ownership mark.  Ownership percentages will be updated as well!  Let me know what you think of this idea!  Basically, I ran into the problem of the same guys being good pickups every week.  I figure it’d be better for everyone to keep a running list, so that the pickups are all in one place, instead of having to look at previous editions of RazzWired.  I’d love comments, criticisms, or advice on what to add!  That being said, here we go!

Peter here, back from a work trip in Jamaica. JB was right when I needed to escape the cold of the Wizards losing season. Maybe they will bring back JaVale McGee and Javaris Crittenton!?!? One can only hope.

Fortunately, the Wizards were off on Tuesday so that meant I got to watch actually good teams, including an overtime game in Phoenix. Here’s your Tuesday recap:

I was happily watching my beloved basketball, and enjoying, yet all the while feeling old. I reminisce about the good old days. The bulls were winning 72 games, shorts had just gotten longer, the only tattoos were on Dennis “the Worm” Rodman, and Centres were lumbering lumpy giant dudes like Bill Cartwright and Rasho Nesterovic, with undefined arms and soft hands, like a baby’s bottom. It was a simpler time. You could be a geek, and still dominate the NBA, a la John Stockton, who was a millionaire, and never stopped getting his mom to cut his hair, apparently. The league, while being dominated by the likes of freaks like Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen, still had room for geeks to make their mark. Heck, the biggest geek of them all, the illustrious Larry Bird, the one lumpy to rule them all, still played in 1992. Is there space for Geeks in today’s league, or is there only to be athletic freaks from now on? Let’s take a look at a few from each column, and see if they fit the description, hmmm?

Man, without fantasy, blowout NBA games featuring sub-.500 teams might be more insufferable to watch than Vanderpump Rules. I would know, because I was watching both last night – L.A. hipsters being the absolute worst on the TV with the wife, then professional NBA players being the absolute worst on the iPad!

But of course some guys played well in the Denver @ Dallas travesty – a game I know Slim watched as well due to his Nuggets-bias – including Nikola Jokic going for a career-high 27/11/4/0/1. Hit 10-12 FG, 7-7 FT, and after Salah Mejri looked like Hassan Whiteside with 3 blocks in the first few minutes, Jokic really helped anchor down better post play.

Side note on those first two buckets for Jokic – look at Dwight Powell struggling to play D on centers. Just sayin’ based on our Pod this morning! Anywho, this is obviously the right step forward for Jock Itch to get unleashed, and he should have no problem working his way up to 30+ MPG every night now, right? RIGHT?!

F@#% You, Malone. So that tells me both A) you don’t reward players for playing well, B) but you do punish players for playing poorly, C) actually that makes total sense! It’s why we keep seeing the rotations wildly different night-to-night with no consistency for good performers. It’s exploitative coaching 101 – you don’t reward your underlings for doing something good, only punish them if they disobey. This also tells me it’s yet another Jusuf Nurkic slam, who went 4/6/2/1/0 on 2-6 shooting with 3 TO, and got thrown around a little by Mejri. I think Slim chose the wrong time to be REL-biased by the Nuggets, shoulda stuck with his Jazz! Here’s what else happened last night in fantasy basketball action:

Soooooo, a big mea culpa from your’s truly.  On top of an epicly busy weekend (is it epicly or epically?  Even online it’s hard to get a definitive answer!), I at least had an epic (no adverb!) epiphany…  Doing the RCL recap post on Fridays was just plain silly, as half of the next week had already gone by.  Due to having multi-posts dedicated on the other days, and two posts on my plate for Monday, I thought Mondays would be rough doing it then.  I mean, who wants 3 posts of “me”, and who would want the world to know I have no life and write all day on Sunday and Monday morning…  Oops!  Too late!  So we’re going to do these on Mondays now, except, well, probably not the next few Mondays…  Stupid holidays!  But earlier in the week than Friday, and on Mondays once we flip to 2017 and get through all this awful Christmas music…

We’re still all chasing Cronos’s in the Take on the Jay league, sitting pretty with a 46-16-1 record, good for 93 RCL points.  A 5 point lead on the field!  I’m going to yell at Jay, both for letting this happen, AND for my Panthers beasting his Bolts…

Check out how your teams stacked up after weeks 6-7 in the 2016-17 RCL Master Standings Table table, and here’s some notable takeaways from the past two regular season weeks across our 23 RCL Leagues:

REL Basketball1The rich just got richer at the top of the REL standings, with the top 4 teams going at least 6-2-1 and separating from the pack.  But they didn’t separate too much, with HateUs Anus picking up a monster 9-0 victory and getting the illusive perfect victory.  FATALITY!  I’ve been playing some Mortal Kombat XL, and some of those fatalities are ridiculous!

After some heavy-spending on the wire the past few weeks, things cooled off a bit in FAAB spending this morning.  Nothing was looking too appealing, not surprising in a 20er!  Here’s how week seven in the 2016-17 REL went down, and how we’re looking heading into week eight:
