It was a week to remember. We laughed, we cried, and I think we learned something new about ourselves, a la Full House weekly episode recap. God, I miss Danny Tanner, and his homespun wisdom. Where were you when I wanted to get a Wu-Tang tattoo when I was 18 years old, Mr Tanner? Speaking of emotions ranging from awesome to regret, let us consider the Razzball RCL: For the Random Commenter Fantasy League participators, week 7 was another step towards fantasy dominance, and in some cases, the rich got richer, and others delivered a “THIS IS SPARTA!” kick to their opponent. Let’s see how the debauchery unfolded, shall we?

JB’s Random Commenter League.  Ladies and Gentlemen, Theeeeeeeese are the JB’s!! Any Godfather of Soul fans out there? I hope so. One thing we can be sure of, is that this JB league likes the 7-2 stew, in multiple servings. The Handsome Lads and Donna’s Mate both helped themselves to a bowl of the 7-2, beating Baby Got Back and Serbian Stud (Darko). Sidenote: Is Darko Milicic still considered a stud in Serbia? I would sooner think Vlade Divac, or at least Rasho Nesterovic, but what do I know? It is interesting to note that the editor, JB, is in last place. Hmmm. The overall leader Your Mom Says Hi is on top with a record of 42-20-1. And in the biggest trade of the year thus far in RCL, King James traded his namesake, along with Aaron Brooks, Zaza P, and Jason Smith, to Punk Rock Gods for Al Jeff, D Will, Wes Matthews and  DeAndre Jordan. Boom.

All Country Ball Club Now, we serve a lot of 7-2 stew in the RCL kitchen, but everyone once in a while, we get the special order. A Vegan Kosher, hold the onions, stew. So it comes as no surprise that the Brooklyn Ballers try to get a 7-1 over Polskie Murarze order past this chef. I do not bat an eye, son. Order Up! Our Man, High as Greg Kite is still breaking hearts, as well as backboards, with an over all lead of 46-16-1. That is domination, people!

JB’s Random Commenter League 2.  The Deuce in full effect! Royal Flush knows how to grow up big and strong: with a weekly bowl of 7-2 stew, beating Razzle Dazzle2. The deuce is strong with that one. Overall, Slippery Squirrels continue to remain in pole position with a score 40-21-2.

Razzball League 3 the Ringers.   The Kosher Vegan Stew is becoming so popular, I’m considering putting it on the menu! The New Day Co-Op beat Beeeenga! with a 7-1 dish. Team Tough Guy Town is still ruling the roost with a score of 40-22-1.

Razzball Hardwood Classic.  Finally, a good old fashioned beat down! Daddy needs the odd bout of the ultra-violence from time to time, and Chump Change read me loud and clear, putting the boots to Bret’s Not Brown in an 8-1 thumping. Bret may not be brown, but this week he’s black and Blue, Amirite?? Chump was helped along with a trade where he gained Chris Bosh, and the Ru Paul of big men knew he better work! Overall, the Classic is ruled by Foot’s Flight Crew, with a score of 45-17-1.

The Double Bonus Fan League.  All we need is love. And a hippy serving of 7-1 stew. Doesn’t have quite the same ring to it, does it? Havana Raftriders confirmed what I have suspected all along, that he is a commie, by ordering up a batch of organic, in-season, locally grown, humanely slaughtered pinko stew, beating Spencer’s Super Team in skirt wearing 7-1 fashion. Fortunately, High Upsiders still likes his meat red, and is leading the league by a score of 43-18-2.

 

Be advised, The Holiday season work-to-rule is shortly coming into effect. I will endeavour to get you all the RCL action, but don’t expect the same wit and panache, as I will be travelling to see family.

Seacrest, Out!

    Hello There Dan,

    I am in a 12ppl league with h2h cats system and my team looks something like this:

    -Paul George
    -Damian Lillard
    -Jrue Holiday
    -Greg Monroe
    -Andre Iguodala
    -Andre Drummond
    -Chandler Parsons
    -Robin Lopez
    -JJ Hickson
    -Trevor Ariza
    -Martell Webster
    -Nene (IR)
    -Lou Williams
    -Terrence Ross

    I will have to drop a player once Nene come back, which is probably later tonight. But I was also thinking of picking up Omer Asik and stash him away on the IR and pay close attention to him as well. In addition, a few people that are on the waver that I have thought about picking up are:

    -Greivis Vasquez
    -Miles Plumlee

    Because I was trying to trade for LaMarcus Aldridge as he is on a squad that is currently last in the league and needs more players… But anyway, do you have anything that you would like to point out to help me improve my team? I am currently ranked 2nd in this 12ppl league and all of my cats are 4th or better, and i am tanking ft% as you can see I have the big boy Drummond.

    The areas I am relatively behind are assts but that is just the person in first has CP3 and Jeff Teague. But anyway, hope to hear from you.

    Henry

      @Henry: glad to hear from you Henry.
      T Ross is the drop IMO for Nene, even though I really like his upside. Lou Williams has been very up and down as well, he might be a guy to consider dropping if you want hold T Ross, as Terrance is the starter for now for the Raps. Or both, if you want to grab Vasquez for the dimes.
      I would perhaps float a trade involving Monroe and, say Parsons for that Aldridge fella, if the Hawks manage to get Asik LaMarcus will see a big bump in his already solid production. Or do nothing, your squad is pretty good overall, as I’m sure you know.
      Best of luck!

    Should I drop John Henson for Tyson chandler?

    • Dan A

      Dan A. says:

      @Carlos: I would. Love Henson, but Tyson is a defensive presence. Just be patient, it’ll take a few weeks for him to get his legs.

        @Dan A.: Can I get a few recommendations too? Or is my comment too long to read?

      @Frank White: yes, all day!

      • Frank White says:

        Just to make sure I put it right, I have Hayward and he’s giving me Bledsoe.. Still All Day?? Sorry I’ve asked questions like that before and someone took it the other way around so I’m not trying to say that you looked at it wrong, just making sure.. Lol

          Dan A. says:

          @Frank White: dude. I can read, I’m not an idiot. Eric Bledsoe for Hayward, how would someone fuck that up? Don’t follow up with ” are you sure you’re sure?” email now.

          • Frank White says:
            (link)

            HaHa.. I meant I didn’t know if you thought I had Bledsoe.. What’s with the additude lately.. Lol. You don’t like me anymore.. HaHa lol jk

    I’m in a 9 cat h2h league. I have a small ball team punting turnovers. Please rank the following: Giannis, Beverley, Terence Ross, Reggie Jackson, Marvin Williams, Ersan, farmar(exp to miss one more week). Thanks !

    Dan A. says:

    I’m on my smartphone, so without bothering to look up all the stats, I’ll be pulling a w bush “goin with my gut!” kinda call. So, best to worst:
    Ross
    Jackson
    Williams
    PBev
    Ersan
    Farmar
    The Greek.
    I like Farmar as a decent PG given the circumstances, but he’s back in a week, maybe longer. Ersan and giannis are on a disaster of a team, but the Greek has the most potential on this list, IMO. The others are more obvious.

    Just joined a 16 team dynasty league, deep rosters, need help with who I should stash with my last roster spot, the options are ugly:

    Austin Rivers
    Tyler Zeller
    Alexey Shved
    Meyeres Leonard
    Kyle O’Quinn
    Lavoy Allen
    Ekpe Udoh
    Earl Clark

    Thanks!!

    • Dan A

      Dan A. says:
      (link)

      @Matt P: yeesh! That is ugly. Is Farmar available? Or b wright? Udoh is the best option, given the derth of points in New York, I suppose. Good luck!

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Matt P: If I wanted something right now I would go with Lavoy Allen. At least some boards with a few points and an occasional steal/block. For a future stash and pray I think that’s Austin Rivers. He was a high draft pick and showed some good scoring ability recently with Tyreke hurt. Evans is back so minutes won’t be there but he’s only one injury away from 25-30 minutes nightly. I don’t think I can say that about anyone else on your list.

    Hey Dan. I just got offered stephen curry for dwight howard/oladipo. I feel like I should ask for someone else with curry. What do you think? The trade could help on my 3s and FT%.

    • Dan A

      Dan A. says:
      (link)

      @Kevin: what would you guess would be his drop to make space for oladipo? Is it someone you might have interest in, or a scrub? If a scrub, who would be a role player you’re interested in? All things considered, don’t scare this off, curry is special. I always worry about his durability, but man, he can ball. And in order to get a player like that, you usually pay a lot, so don’t look at what’s going out the door, focus on what’s coming back in.

    Yo Yo Yo wuzz up, check out my squad, any moves/trades you would recommend? Feelin like selling or dropping Robin (2 back to back stinkers) and Jonas (not sure if he will be consistent)…..or stay patient? shit does happen..
    Tony P, Steph Curry, Batum, Duncan, Horford, West, Eric Gordon, Bogut, Matthews, Robin, Jonas, Korver, Rondo….. ive been Eyeing D.J. Augy possible pick up for assist, thanks

    • Dan A

      Dan A. says:
      (link)

      @AJ: No not drop Lopez or Jonas for DJ Augustin. Be patient. Jonas is playing much better now that Rudy Gay is gone, and Robin has played well for the entire season. One or two duds do not a drop make.

  9. Jake Van Zuiden says:

    What’s up Dan! Got offered Kobe and Bledsoe for my Westbrook and Burke. Also got offered Rondo and Harden for my Westbrook and Burke

    • Dan A

      Dan A. says:
      (link)

      @Jake Van Zuiden: Kobe and Bledsoe sounds good. You will need a little patience with Kobe, he’s rusty. But it’s the Black Mamba. I’m not willing to write him off yet.

    Hey man, I need some advice. I’m in a H2H 9-cat 14-team league.

    Number one, is Enes Kanter droppable? Here are some free agents in our league: PJ Tucker, Marco Bellinelli, Ramon Sessions, Marcus Morris, James Anderson, Trevor Booker, Khris Middleton, Michael Beasley. Everyone’s telling me I shouldn’t drop Kanter because of his upside but he just doesn’t work as a bench player.

    Number two, I have Glen Davis, Tobias Harris, and Victor Oladipo. Should I drop one of them? I already considered dropping Big Baby but he’s still playing pretty decent ball.

    Sorry for the long questions. Love your articles by the way!

    • Dan A

      Dan A. says:
      (link)

      @Chinoy: I hear you about Enes. There is talk that he has a back injury, which makes it extremely difficult to trade him. You may have to drop him and move on.
      I would drop Baby once Harris has become more reliable, in a week or, max, two weeks.
      If you can get Hibbert for Rondo, you’re straight up robbing him, I would be surprised if Rondo plays well before February, so then there’s only like 6 weeks of the fantasy season with him playing at a high level. I could be totally wrong, it’s just a gut feel. So add a sweetener if you need to to get Roy, that would be good for you.

  11. Chinoy says:
    (link)

    I forgot to add this to my comment above.

    Someone offered me Brandon Jennings for my Rajon Rondo. Should I take it?
    I also counter-offered my Rondo for his Roy Hibbert and he’s putting it under consideration.

  12. AJ says:

    Yea I hear ya on R. Lopez and Jonas, but just this morning someone dropped Gortat, I have been saving my high waiver spot for sumthin nice…not sure if I wanna use it on Gortat thought ? Thanks

    • Dan A

      Dan A. says:
      (link)

      @AJ: hmm. I would say no. marcin is struggling pretty mightily. His stats lately are worse than Lopez or JV, so do with that what you will.

    Dan man,
    Need your help!
    Antetokounmpo or DJ Austine in the long run?
    Anteto I can solidify stl/blk while DJ I can improve on 3s/ast, so needs aint really important.
    Future are both murky so need you help~

    • Dan A

      Dan A. says:

      @quintero: hmm. I would say take Giannis. More upside

      • Quintero says:
        (link)

        @Dan A.: okay! Thanks mate!

  14. Frank White says:

    Hey Dan… Since Kobe is hurt do you think Farmar is going to be the man to pickup?? I know he’s hurt but on Yahoo it says Henry is only going to start until Farmar comes back and takes over.

    • Dan A

      Dan A. says:
      (link)

      @Frank White: Farmar will be the starting point, yes. Until they make a trade.
