Even though he looks exactly like the youngest kid from Malcolm in the Middle, Steve Blake is playing like an NBA PG in the top.  Last night’s 16 Asts gives him 10+ in four straight, and starting to remind us of Chris Paul who has started the year with the ten straight 10+ dime games.  You can’t go anywhere in LA without someone trying to give you a dimebag!  I think that’s going to be a new term I’m going to add into the Razzball lexicon, 10+ assists equals a dimebag.  As in, “the Lakers got so high last night with Steve Blake handing out a dimebag!”  Pretty soon it won’t even be a crime anywhere.  Rasheed Wallace is like, “man I played at the wrong time!” Blake is an obvious must-own in all leagues, and I think will be all year.  He’s been D-Antoni-ed. Here’s what else I saw across fantasy hoops over the weekend:

Josh Smith - Even Nicolas Batum was tweeting about Smith’s Friday stat line!  21/8/7/5/4.  Super double rainbow line!  I don’t think that’s ever happened since I’ve taken over the Razz reigns.  Is there two pots of gold at the end of the double rainbow?  Fantasy reactions were like that Youtube video of the guy seeing double rainbows.  And this line was after a dud, then more-or-less goose egg in the games before.  Followed it up with 18/8/3/2/1 last night.

Jordan Hill - A career-high 24 points and a career-high 17 boards.  Another D-Antoni-ed!  Marks four straight great games and four straight 26 minutes+.  Must-own more-or-less everywhere.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope - Starting line-up baby!  Ok, so he’s done nothing and Rodney Stuckey is playing out the crucial minutes down the stretch.  But I still like KCP and the backcourt of he and BJ has some ridiculous initialized upside.

Marc Gasol - Hola, hola!  Gigante… ummm.. statisticos?  Yeah I’m too lazy to Google Translate that.  A stat line of 19/8/9 on Sunday after a Friday 18/8/8 line.  And you know what?  The former 3-5 Grizz are now 5-5 in those two games.  Look for a lot of plays to keep running through Marc.

Terrence Jones - With Omer Asik trying to out duel Andrea Bargnani for my “Il Diva” nickname with his trade demands, TJ is rocking (see what I did there!) out with the big man stats of 14/12/2/1/3 on Saturday night.  By the time I wrote that blurb to 30 minutes later, Asik now is saying he wants to play and has talked to McHale, GM, and players… in, ummm, Turkish I guess?  This is like The Real HouseRockets of Houston.  Jones is gonna bitch slap Asik for trying to “steal my spotlight!”  What a mess.  Hopefully Asik gets traded sooner rather than later.

DeJuan Blair - Playing like his Spurs starting days!  In 25 minutes, 7-9 18/5/2/2/1 on Saturday.  He’s best asset is the boarding, but he’s at a shocking 2.2 steals per contest right now.  Boggling!  He can rack up the cleanup big minutes as they come.  Definitely into 14-teamer considerations right now, maybe even in 12s if you need boards and steals.

Arron Afflalo – Just won’t cool off.  Dude, I used to love Afflalo back in the Denver days, but he’s just no fun on the Magic.  Let the kids play!

Kyrie Irving - A 41-burger Saturday night!  41/4/5/2.  @ThisIsUncleDrew.

Martell Webster - Got the start, and while he didn’t play particularly well, went for 43 minutes into the OT for 14/7/1/1/0 shooting 4-12.  Webster is getting a few more starts with Trevor Ariza on the long list of guys missing time with hammies, and still worth owning in 12-teamers for a stretch.

Nene - The Brazilian Steakhouse is sizzzzzzzlin!  After his worst game last Wednesday, followed up with a big 24/7/2/1/2 near rainbow line Saturday.  Not hittin’ the freebies, but riffing the multi-cat like the Denver glory days.  Worth being sure he’s owned (67.8% ESPN, 66% Yahoo).

Josh McRoberts - Shot a nasty 3-10 including nothing but bricks in 6 deep shots, but 6/7/8.  You love the multi-cat, but I feel like he’s either awful all-around, or awful offensively and can rock a multi-cat.  Still no Al Jefferson, so McBob isn’t really a must own in virtually any leagues.  I think Big Al can produce and be healthy.

James Anderson - Has gone back to being James Anderson.

Tony Wroten - Everyone’s favorite last name pun is actually maintaining some value after the ridiculous triple-double debut.  22/6 and 19/3/2/3 over the weekend.  Michael Carter-Williams is steal dealing with a sore foot, probably with the added weight of so many letter sewn on his jersey, and could sit out a little while longer.  Wroten is worth an add in all leagues in this stretch.

Ryan Anderson - Welcome back!  Played 27 minutes in his debut, shooting 10-16 including a redonk 6-10 from deep.  26 Pts but only 1 board an 1 Stl added to the stat sheet.  Regardless, obviously needs to be owned in all leagues as impatient owners may have cut the chord prenataly.  Be sure he’s owned.

Anthony Davis - Eight blocks?!  Brow angry!  Brow no like Thaddeus Young!

Atlanta Hawks - Had 8 guys in double figures on Saturday night.  Sharing is caring!  But Teague only got one assist!  Say whaaaa!?  Shelvin Mack was the one dealin’ handing out a nice dimebag of 12!  Dennis Shroder was suspended, but Mack’s solid play crowds up the joint a bit.

Lou Williams - Returned to action on Friday night for 7/3/2/1/0 in 16:01.  Sat out Saturday not to overwork that ACL-repaired knee.  Just good to see him back on the court.  Worth monitoring.

Paul George - Everyone loved to yell at me for having George out of my first round, and his multi-cats have been cooling off to an ice cold 12/6/2 line on Saturday shooting 3-14.  Of course you’re allowed to have a bad game, but George is still a real-life superstar and not quite a fantasy no-brainer first rounder to me.

Derrick Rose - Thank God he’s back!  Still not shooting well (7-16) but hit 6 treys for 20/3/4.  I think you’re just happy he’s back.

Ty Lawson - 28/2/17.  “Time to kick your tires and light your fires!”  Wait, is that the line from Aliens?  I definitely know “Game over man!  Game over!”  That sound byte from Bill Paxton is how I feel about a few of my teams already.

Wilson Chandler - His hammy must be feeling good, getting another 29 minutes on Saturday to starter Jordan Hamilton‘s 15.  Chandler a solid 14/3/1 no TOs and two treys.  Will only get better.  Be sure he’s scooped up.

Donatas Motiejunas - A surprise 17 minutes on Saturday for 12/3/1/1/1.  If Asik is indeed back in the rotation, this is just a rando-blip.

Dwight Howard - Made more free throws in 24 attempts than Chapel Hill could make against Belmont yesterday in 48 attempts.  Ok, not quite true, but sad Dwight was close with 17 to UNC’s pathetic 22 in the upset home loss.

Olynyk of Nazareth vs. Vitor Faverani - The jumbo Brazilian against the most important historical figure in history goes to… Brazilian!  Vitor with a shocking 27 minutes, a start, and 9/14/1/3/4 and two threes.  What the hey?!  Olynyk in turn goes 6/2 in 15 minutes off the bench.  What the eff is going on?!  Faverani has much more value than Olynyk if he was ever given the full-time gig, but as I’ve been saying since Olynyk got surprising minutes, I want none of this.

Avery Bradley - 27 points?!  And Jeff Green, the only real sure-fire fantasy option had 2.  How this team is 4-7 is beyond me.  What a mess.

Minnesota Backup Bigs - Uh oh, Derrick Williams fans – just 3 minutes off the bench in a blowout win.  To be fair, he is coming off back spasms, but with Chase Budinger to return in probably 3-4 weeks, he’s safe to lose in all leagues.  Dante Cunningham got 28 minutes on Saturday for 12/4/3 and Robbie Hummel got a surprise 21 minutes for 8/5/1.  I think Cunningham could have solid value in 16+ deep leagues.

Khris Middleton - Another rocky start, but Caron Butler still has a bum shoulder and KMid will continue to get run.  I like K Middleton’s versatility, as does Prince Harry.  14/2/1/1/0 in 32 minutes against the Thunder on Saturday and two threes.

Zaza Pachulia - You kidding me Zaza?  I remember on Friday night looking over at my buddy doing the Bucks highlights and I was like, “how the eff is Zaza Pachulia 2-12?!”  And then he ended 2-14.  Then, whewwww-eee, shot up that field goal percentage with a hugely efficient 3-13 Saturday night!  Has Zaza seen himself shoot?  Yikes, Bucks are a mess.  And after hitting a deer this past week on the interstate, I hate Bucks everywhere.

Ekpe Udoh - The knee must be feeling better!  A double-double 11/11/2/0/2 line on Saturday in a whopping 39 minutes.  All the bigs are hurt, so I semi buy this as a deep league option.  Didn’t I just say I hated all Bucks!?  Dammit principles!

Luke Ridnour - Had his season debut Friday, and apparently Zaza is trying to show Ridnour some jumper tips as he’s gone 2-6 then 1-4 on Saturday.  I wish I could personally massage Brandon Knight‘s hamstring to get him back on the court…  I have the magic touch!  Wow, late night crown and coke talking… Thanks again DanThePoorMetFan!  I got the Maple though, it was on sale.  Hope that’s cool…

Jermaine O’Neal - Took a nasty fall, spraining his knee, his groin, and hit the Life Alert button right away.  He’s gonna be out a while.  Marreese Speights is in line to get extended run as the only true big off the bench.  I’m excited!  I get to go “the ace of Speighttttsssss!!!!” a lot more often now.

Deron Williams - Uh oh.  Another ankle injury.  You know, I moved him down in my ranks and I was avoiding at all costs, but I didn’t move him down nearly enough.  Looks like it’ll be at least 3-5 more games.

Shaun Livingston - A must own the next few games.  Shot a putrid 4-14 on Saturday, but a 11/5/5/2/0 line.  He looked good in the preseason too.

Mason Plumlee - These Plumlee brothers and their fleeting upside!  If I was a Duke fan, I’d be going nuts right now.  But Brook Lopez has an ankle injury as well and Kevin Garnett sat out, aiding Mason’s 7-10 19/6/0/1/1 line.  A short-term streamer, sure, but not seeing much long-term upside for this season.

Blake Griffin - Those who reached are getting paid off.  30/12/2/0/1.  Woop Woop!

DeAndre Jordan – Doc has figured out how to DJ.  Next he’ll be manning the turntable at Kanye & Kim’s wedding.  9/16 and 5 blocks for the big man.  He hath been unlocked.

Jonas Valanciunas - A Luminescent Lithuanian sighting!  A shining line of 8-11 (3-3 FT) 19/9 and a block.  Imagine what he could do, if say, the Raptors wingers weren’t shooting, I dunno I’ll make up a preposterous number of 27 shots each every game!  Oh wait, DeMar DeRozan and Rudy Gay did just that yesterday… #TradeGayAndFreeTheLL!!!!!

Shaq-ramento Kings - I dunno if I’ve ever seen a starting lineup get fewer minutes, at only 84 minutes for the starters yesterday.  Who is coaching this team, Brad Stevens?!  DeMarcus Cousins got only 18:10 and didn’t even do anything stupid!  At least, I don’t think…

Brandon Jennings - 23/5/14.  Helllloooo Shirley!  I just know that from Super Troopers… Settling into the new squad.

Dion Waiters - Hmmmm, interesting story coming out that Waiters has disappeared from the team after being called out in a players-only meeting.  The big takeaway is it should mean big minutes for Wahhhhhhh!!!! I’m Jarrett Jack (probably who called out Waiters) and Matthew Dellavedova, who got 31 minutes on Saturday.  He didn’t do much at 2/6/2, but worth noting.  Interesting tidbit, don’t typo “noting” as “nothing” because if you miss it in the proofread, they’re opposites!

 

Next Game: I’ve got Sixers @ Mavs tonight.  Excited to see Tony Wroten in action, who I haven’t seen yet.  Hopefully everyone has seen solid lines from their guys thus far and good luck in week 4!

    So I’m staring at JHill and Blake and Tobias on my waiver wire…
    The bottom guys on my squad include brewer, pbev, plumlee, Lin and this is an 8 cat weekly H2H
    What’s my move here? Definitely dropping brewer I assume but am I dropping pbev as well and grabbing both of these lakers?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: Hmmmm, agree, losing Brewer for Blake… Then sorta on how your team is looking, if you’ve been slow at the big man stats, grab Hill, if you need the dimes/steals, stick with PBev.

      • Zandy says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: leave Tobias out there for a bit? You wouldn’t drop plumlee right (Phoenix one)?

        Thanks dude!

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Zandy: Nope I’d still hold Plumlee… Any time man!

    RE: The Plumlee blurb- If you were a Duke fan you’d also be an A-Hole and nobody wants that.

      @Clyde Prompto: Haha, agree wholeheartedly sir!

  3. I posted this in the other thread but would you trade Chandler Parsons for Steve Blake straight up? I’m really trying to get something of value for Parsons because I have Jeff Green. Another is Pekovic for Jordan Hill, which doesn’t really appeal to me but I thought I’d ask.

    I dropped PBev for Tobias today so I didn’t get left behind when he’s cleared.

    Thanks man, really enjoy your work.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @WNWDOTCOM: Nah, I’d hold both of those moves. Still like Parsons a lot. Thanks man!

      @mUshi: I’d still take Wall, both banged up, think Wall a little less so

      • mUshi says:

        @JB Gilpin: follow up question, wall or westbrook? this is for a 9-cat roto league if it makes any difference. thanks again!

          @mUshi: Hmmmmm, close one… It’s a coin flip for me, I think I’d go Wall for the Asts, but barelllly

            @JB Gilpin: one last question! haha how much value do you think deron has ROS?

  5. Frank White says:

    Morning JB… 1- Someone just dropped Ariza. He’s a def pickup right?? 10 team cat, Oh and I’d be using my #1 waiver and dropping Hanson. 2- Is Beverley still worth owning?? They say to hold and wait but I’d rather your advise

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Frank White: No Ariza ia hurt. Pulled hamstring. I’d hold Henson, and yeah, keep Beverley a little longer

      • Frank White says:
        (link)

        Yeah but Ariza will be back in a couple games… I’m not looking for a stream but someone to keep. Still don’t grab him??

      • Frank White says:
        (link)

        Also do you think I should drop Manu Ginobili, cause he’s been sucking ass, and just stream guys in his position that are hot that week like Mo Williams right now?? I mean I also got Henson’s spot to grab a player but I’m trying to find a long term guy for that. IDK!!

      • Frank White says:
        (link)

        What does Frank White is* mean??

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Frank White: I typoed “is” in my first comment. Ginobili has been decent, I’d hold right now.

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Frank White: I’d drop Zac and Isaac but I would definitely hold Taylor for now, the girls love him. Oh I kid. That was too easy.

      In an attempt to actually be helpful, I completely agree with JB.

        @Slim: Ummmmm bopppppp!!!!

  6. I’ll second your sentiment on the Shaq-ramento Kings. I had Vasquez in my lineup yesterday and an ultra-close battle for assists. He ended up benched and only logged 19 minutes. Greg Monroe came through in the clutch for me and delivered 3 assists for me to take the category by one dime but I’m weary of the Shaq-ramento rotation. This whole “change of culture, it’s not about wins and losses” mentality is not conducive for fantasy. I’ve been trying to move Vasquez but cut my losses after this one. Running with Tony Wroten for now and will look to fill this spot on the waver wire. A cold start and crappy rotation is enough for me to cut bait.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @WNWDOTCOM: Yeah I don’t blame you, and IT2 looks better anyway… What a mess those Shaq-ters

  7. Steve Stevenson says:
    (link)

    H2H pts, big bonus for dbl-dbls, start 2: Duncan (Bos, @Mem, Cle–but has only played both games of a back to back 1/3 times this year), T. Jones (Bos, @Dal, Min), Brewer (@Was, LAC, Bkn, @Hou).

    • @Steve Stevenson: Brewer has that extra game but I dropped him in favor of Jones. Going to roll with him this week, seems to have a lot of upside and a serious double double threat.

      • Steve Stevenson says:
        (link)

        @WNWDOTCOM: Thanks. Yeah, as a Rockets fan I like Jones a lot right now, but I have no idea what to do about Duncan. There’s a reasonable chance he only gets 2 gms, and Brewer has some nice matchups (including against the Rockets–attention everyone, if you have someone who gets stls and 3s going against the Rox, fire them up).

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Steve Stevenson: With Asik set to play, I’d still stick with Duncan, I know it’s risky, but Jones might get knocked down to the 20-25 minute range. Asik probably told the coached he’s gonna play like it’s a game 7 so they can move him faster.

    So I’ve been offered a trade in a roto league with percentages and no turnovers… I’ve been offered Lebron and DeAndre in return for Kevin Love and Josh Smith. I sort of want to do it because I’m far and away leading in 3ptm and could use a little help in FG%, but I sort of like, love Love, and Smoove is coming alive…but argh…it’s Lebron, you know? and DeAndre has almost as many boards as K Love… any thoughts?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @TH: Yeah I hear ya, it’s close, but with Love’s comprehensive injury history and LeBron being LeBron, I’d do it.

    Hi,
    I could use your advice. Gerald Henderson & Ginobli were just dropped in my league and i was wondering if you would recommend dropping any of these guys for them? my droppables are Pierce, felton, oladipo & Brewer. I know most people would say drop brewer for henderson but Brewer has been killing it lately plus i am a die hard T-wolves fan and watch every game, so I love rooting for guys on my fantasy & real life team. :)
    love your articles!
    thanks

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @nathan: Thanks man! Hold Brewer man, it’s all about having fun and cheering for your guys. I love Brewer too. I think I’d hold. You’re loving life as a Wolves fan right now!

  16. Brendan says:

    Drop Patrick Beverley to add Rondo? I love Beverley but he’s not taking many shots and his value is being hurt by Jeremy Lin. On the other hand, I don’t need assists, so Rondo would probably just be trade bait.

    Also, would you drop either Markieff Morris or Tobias Harris to add Terrence Jones? Jones has been playing well since he got the start due to Asik’s trade request, and if Asik gets his wish or remains benched, I can see a consistent player in Jones. Markieff Morris was the hot free agent last week, but has cooled down, perhaps in part due to an illness. I still like his chances of being a starter, though. Tobias Harris still has no timetable to return, but there seems to be so much potential there that I don’t know if I would want to risk losing it by dropping him. What do you think?

    I also have John Henson and Brandon Knight that might be droppable, but I really need them to play C and SG for me.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Brendan: Rondo needs to be owned, I’d rather replace Markiff or Tobias with him. Asik looks like he’ll be back tomorrow, unfortunately for everyone haha. I don’t think it lasts too long, but worth noting.

    OK! So someone needs to teach me how to play this game and win. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I think I have a good team, but keep losing. FML

    PG – Wall
    SG – Kyrie
    G – IT2
    SF – George
    PF – Griffin
    F – Favors
    C – Ibaka
    C – Bargnani
    UT – Wroten
    UT – Calderon
    BN – Johnson (TOR)
    BN – Stephenson
    BN – Nene

    Why do I keep losing with a squad like this?

    Do I make a trade of Favors and Ibaka for Millsap and D. Lee?

      @Jay_0321: Haha, how it goes sometimes. Your slate of games vs. oppo can do you in, opponents having big weeks can do it, lots of factors. I think you try to ride it out, I wouldn’t make that move.

    Sanders and Zaza both dropped in my league. We start 2 C and a flex, H2H pts, big bonus for dbl-dbls. Because of eligibility restrictions, Cs are gold in this league (Lavoy Allen was just picked up). How much to bid on the Bucks out of $100? I don’t especially need a C (start Howard and B. Lopez, Chandler on IR), but love them as trade chips. The biggest adds this year have gone for about $30, but then again Lavoy went for 10.

      @Steve Stevenson: Do you only have the 1 IR spot? I might not make a run on Sanders if that’s the case. $15ish for Zaza, if he could hit a shot he’d be a dub dub machine

      • Steve Stevenson says:

        @JB Gilpin: yeah, just 1 IR, 4 bench.

          @Steve Stevenson: Yeah I’d let Sanders roll through others’ FAAB, I’m not exactly sold he becomes what we saw last year when back.

    who do you guys like, Tobias Harris or Jordan Hill? Will the return of the black mamba mean Hill’s run is almost over?

    • JB Gilpin

      @zshaft: Obviously like Hill more now, think Harris will narrowly be better but he’s gonna be eased in. If I had one spot right now, it’d be Hill on my team.

    What’s the story with George hill? Is he a buy low or def someone to avoid?

    • JB Gilpin

      @Zandy: I’d say buy low. Got banged up and he’ll get his numbers once the season wraps up

    Would you move Brook lopez and say gerald green for LaMarcus Aldridge?

      @Jay: Yea I’d definitely offer that one to get LA

    Big trade in our league today – I got CP3, Monroe and Tobias for The Brow and Boogie. Absolutely love Davis, but couldn’t turn down CP3, with the crafty Tobias sweetener. Picked him up last year and he helped solidify a roto championship, so he’s a pet fave. What say you to the trade JB? I now have Durant, CP3 and Westbrook, altho a bit thin after that.

      @Prodders: Yeah CP3 the best player makes it a winner. i love the Brow too, but agree, can’t turn it down. I think Monroe is solid and gives you a great core like it!

    got offered david lee and victor oladeepthroat for ty lawson. worth it? and should i be worried about lou williams coming back? should i try to sell high on teague?

      @big bob: On Teague, I think he’s a tad of a sell high, but I’m not really shopping him. Can Sanders go to IR? If so I’d drop Davis and open up a spot. I think I’d probably hold off on that trade, I really like Lee, but I think your team could us Lawson’s asts more

    Ilyasova for Blake. Who wins?

      @The Nightman Cometh: Sorta depends on needs, but I’m buying Blake a good bit, think I might have him since healthy

    JB need some help

    I was offered Nene for my Trey Burke ? I personally think Burke has a lot more upside and nene is bound to get injured and plus I think i am pretty set on PFs? Some help would be great. Another question was that SLIMS told me to trade Zach Randolph? what do you think, he is actually tearing it up

      @Michael Pan: 13 teams… Yeah i might hold Burke with the depth you have up front. I think I’d hold ZBo, his perceived value always seems to be lower than his real value, so he’s tough to really trade what he’s worth. If someone offered me a nice haul for him I’d do it, but I wouldn’t be actively shopping

    In need of a PG would you recommend dropping Felton who continues to have lingering injuries to pick up and stash Trey Burke? Thanks

    • JB Gilpin

      @AJ: Nah I think I’d hold onto Felton, yea he has lingering injuries but he’s still playing big minutes and playing every game.
