    so on heels of a busy weekend where I shipped out KAT/Noel for a ton of wings like Kawhi/Parsons/Derozan

    i’m trying to move some WW scrap like Aminu and Casspi and turn it into a Stifle Tower

    so i’ve got on the front burner;

    MY Horford, Casspi, Aminu and Mudiay (last 3 straight from the wire)

    FOR

    Gobert, A. Gordon, AND Jeff Teague.

      @sam: Nice, did you comment this trade earlier? Something similar I saw in a comment, but yeah I like what you would get. Teague is a nice step up and Gobert and Horford are getting pretty close in value

        @JB Gilpin: 26 and 5/9 FT argh!

          @Paul: Haha, make your damn FT, Brad!

    I got Klay too for 30!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Jeremy: Yeah that was the first one that came to mind for me too, damn that Slim going so fast! Although I hijacked it for the fast pick last time with Brow…

    Team: Wall, Teague, A.Bradley, Redick, Middleton, Batum, Durant, Bosh, Goose, Gortat, Gobert
    League: 10-team, 9-cat, h2h.

    Is it time to start panicking on Middleton? Since Kidd came back the Bucks have reverted to not running the ball through Duchess. His assists are down (by almost 2 assists!) and he’s shot above .400 only once(!) since Kidd returned to the bench on January 26 (and that was on 1/26. He hasn’t hit .400 since). Are we confident this is just a slump or should I be looking to deal? In my league, Duchess can be kept for one more year at a 10th rd price. If I do field offers for him, what kind of player/need should I target?

    • Joe says:
      (link)

      @Joe:

      Btw, after a win on 1/26, the Bucks have lost every game since. 5 in a row. This Kidd effect is looking real.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Joe: I remember you asking this a few weeks ago, and I wasn’t too concerned and I prob shouldve been! TO have stayed up too… But STL are there, shots are there, I gotta imagine they start falling better, and maybe he loses a few dimes, but it’s not enough to panic in my mind. I’d need 50-60ish overall back still, especially at that keeper value, and prob want a keepable asset. Damn this Kidd, he’s awful!

    Would you trade hayward + porter for butler ?

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @nont nontiskul: @sam: I think I would, I’m not too worried about Butler’s knee, he’s better than Hayward, and Porter’s health I worry about…

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @nont nontiskul: @sam: @JB Gilpin: Whoa nevermind! Did NOT see it ballooned into a 3-4 week thing, that’s critical. Def holding now

  6. jdubs says:
    (link)

    Man JB, doubling up! Well at least something good for you came out of last week… (too soon? sorry about that loss though, it certainly wasn’t an entertaining game so at least most everyone outside of Colorado didn’t have fun either!) Anyways, I’m thinking there’s going to be a great game at MSG with Wall and Melo trading buckets up and down the court! Gotta go Wall for 30 in this one to continue on his hot streak.

    What are you thinking about schroder nowadays? it seems more and more likely neither he nor teague will get moved before the deadline. I’ll probably hold until then, but is he worth keeping as a handcuff (have both teague and schroder right now) after if nothing happens? thanks man!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @jdubs: Yeahhhh it was a bad game for sure…

      Nice call on Wall!

      I am likely holding even if no trade past the deadline too. He’s still contributing 3s/AST/STL in lower minutes, and Teague def has some kankle issues haha

      • jdubs says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Nice, thanks for the tips… with all the Jeff Teague rumors flying around today things are looking up in terms of a trade though!

        Now I have another quandry…I’m currently in 11th place out of 14, and the last 4 weeks of the season I’ll be facing some light competition (14th, 5th, 12th, 10th). With the news that Butler is out 3-4 weeks, his owner is panicking and is looking for a fire sale. He seemed open to taking Elfrid and Stanley Johnson. Am I missing something here in saying that I should do this? I can’t believe we’re at that point already where 3-4 weeks means rest of the regular season…time flies!

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @jdubs: Yup it’s gettin’ wild out there!

          Yeah I probably am not taking that butler risk, especially in (at least) a 14er. You need those depth guys. I would hold

  7. Kevin says:
    (link)

    Give me Klay for 30 tonight. Going for 2 in a row!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Kevin: He’s def a popular pick tonight! Good luck!

  8. Ryan says:
    (link)

    Gimme Wall for 30! The man has been on fire and is facing that stifling Calderon D and the surging Knicks tonight.

    I didn’t watch the BOS-SAC game, but heard about the block. Gotta look it up. I am so relieved that Turner has stopped taking as many 3s btw. I pray Stevens gets Marcus to stop shooting from deep eventually. He should not have more than four 3PA/game under any circumstances.

    Gawwwd I’m so sick of Ibaka. I don’t need blocks at all so, I could literally drop him for some WW guys and be better off. I actually received an offer of DD and D-Will for Ibaka and Elfrid. It helps me for sure since I need FT% and PTS, and to a lesser extent, 3s. My team avgs nearly 47% FG on the season too, so I think I can afford to take the FG% hit. Still can’t believe I’m actually considering this.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Ryan: Nice! Haha well Calderon might play 10 minutes in favor of Galloway again…

      totally agree on Smart – I ranted about that a tonnnnnn last year, about how I loved his slashing game in college, but they’re making him shoot over half his shots as 3s as a rookie! Didn’t make sense.

      Hah yeah it’s not awful! I would def try for a taddddd more to a team needing blocks, but it’s not that far off, sadly

    So Teague apparently deleted all his hawks related photos on instagram. Jeez I wish I had snagged Schroder from the wire. The guy who owns Schroder has been stashing him for almost a month now and he knows what might go down in atlanta so he isn’t looking to trade the pointguard unless it’s for the likes of McCollum. I still tried tho, I offered him Stanjo. Lol

    Another news that came out was Crowder revealing he’s been playing with a high ankle sprain. Before this even came out I already offered Korver & Stanjo for him, and his owner made neither move to decline of accept so I guess another bad game from Crowder plus the fact that he’s pretty much still injured might finally sway the guy to accept my offer!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Dante Green: Haha wow, what a whiner that Teague… Cool, yeah if he’s playing through it I’m not too worries, hopefully that deal works out!

  10. The Gintern says:
    (link)

    Damnnn, was gonna go IT but I don’t like picking the same guy as someone else, so let’s go with a Dirk putting on a vintage performance tonight.

    Haha oh man those GOP debate entrances were absurd! Not just Ben Carson being too hopped up on muscle relaxants or whatever the hell his deal is to realize he should be walking out, but Jeb making a face at Donny and before that Donny joining Ben and just kind of standing in the way. Worth re-watching or watching the whole clip if anybody hasn’t seen it.

    My deal for Crowder went through and I ended up getting josh smith too… Who am I dropping him for: wesley johnson, etwuan moore, or maybe even dunleavy? This is for ROS which is 3 weeks for me. Or do I, ugh, have to keep him?

    ‘Preciate it!!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @The Gintern: Ah damn he had a nice one, just needed to bury a few more of those treys!

      Hah yeah I saw it on SNL. Great stuff. Hah I would get Wesley Johnson if 9cat, low TO, nice D stats, nice 3s!

  11. hamtime says:

    1. with news of m gasol out for the season, is Wright an automatic pickup in 14/16m leagues?
    choosing between the following in each league:

    14m – dropped winslow for wright but Tele, Portis, Hezonja available in the pool. Do you like any of them more?

    16m – own mahinmi – drop for wright, tele, or stash demarre carrol?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @hamtime: 1. Man, wish he was healthy… But yeah I think you add him. 14 – mehhhh, all kinda close in raw value, I like Wright upside. And 16, yeah Wright there too

  12. dom says:
    (link)

    is Matt Barnes a “must own” in 10 teamers now with Gasol out indef? Is he any more “must own” than Korver or Aaron Gordon, both of whom were just dropped in that league? How do these guys compare to Markieff Morris, who is currently occupying my second streaming spot? Thanks bro

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @dom: I’d prob rather go Gordon upside, so nah, not must wn in 10ers. I think for now I’d have to own Morris first though, then probably holding Gordon, I know tough to not stream in 10er though…

  13. sliimbo says:
    (link)

    hey buddy

    is it time to grab danny green again? could dump schroder, smart or evan turner

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @sliimbo: Def not Schroder! I’d likely lose Smart

  14. Peaniece says:
    (link)

    Yo JB since butler is out for 4 weeks Ive seen an opportunity to perhaps propose a trade
    my pau gasol and wesley matthews for his robin lopez and jimmy buttler
    I reckon i can hoard the 4 weeks of injury but would this overall be a good move?
    Thx <3

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Peaniece: Mannnn, it’s just tough because it could obviously linger, and maybe they wait until the few few games to bring him back for the playoffs. I think Pau is too high an asset to give up for that risk…

    Jay BEE

    Missed the 30 point challenge! Darn it.

    But was offered Batum for My Favors? What would you say to that??

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Ankur: Aw, we missed ya! If you had phenomenal big man depth, I might, but only might. I’m likely saying no though

      • Ankur says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Have Done! Mucho Thanks!

        • JB Gilpin

          @Ankur: De nada!

  16. Tyler says:
    (link)

    Playoffs start Mar14

    Drop blake griffin and tyler zeller for the following?
    Patrick Patterson
    Luis Scola
    Hollis Thompson
    Mareese Speights

    • Tyler says:
      (link)

      @Tyler: Jon Leuer also available

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Tyler: Ummm, well if you’re already in the playoffs, I might try to hold Blake. I guess you could lose Zeller for Patterson, but I would stream the spot

  17. Ankur says:
    (link)

    Hey Again,

    Would you rather own Matt Barnes or Jokic for rest of the season?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Ankur: Yo, ummmm gimme Barnes ROS, trust the mins more, especially with Gasol down

      • Ankur says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Thanks!

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:

          @Ankur: Any time!

  18. Lasandro says:
    (link)

    Word that Eric Gordon may be back by the end of Feb. In a vacuum, would you rather he or KCP (14cat roto)?

    And if Oladipo and Teague do get traded for one another, is it safe to assume their production would somewhat stay the same? Rotoworld seems adamant that Oladipo could regress in Atlanta but I dunno..

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Lasandro: Still KCP, who I think is better and will definitely be back right after ASB. Yeahhhh I dunno about that neither, I wouldn’t rush to judgement on either. Would crush Elfrid though…

  19. TheMuppetManiac says:
    (link)

    Better bigbto own Brandan Wright or Nurkic?

  20. hanns says:
    (link)

    should I pick up schroder and drop my archie goodwin, taj gibson, or jared sullinger?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @hanns: Sure, Taj seems a little beat up and he’s kinda blah to me

  21. That Feetwork says:
    (link)

    Hey JB or Slim!

    I currently have Goodwin on my team, but would you drop him to stash Carroll or E. Gordon?
    9-cat, 12-team H2H

    Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @That Feetwork: Hey man! Mehhhh, it’s close. prob not Carroll, wanna see him healthy for sure. i’m likely holding for now

  22. Dante Green says:
    (link)

    So as you know I have three guys who are benefitting from injuries to their teammates: Goodwin (Knight), Sjohnson (KCP), Fournier (Tharris). And I don’t think I’d be able to move these three because everything ESPN writes about them includes words such as ‘will lose value’ & ‘will go back to bench’. Lol I wish the Suns shut down Knight already, would love to have me a sun on my team in Goodwin. But what can you actually do in a situation like this? I’m kinda feeling helpless. Lol I mean it’s out of my hands. Nothing we can do really, but to wait for the demise of these players’ value. Lol

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Dante Green: Johnson is clearly the first drop to me. KCP plays monster minutes, and the only time Stanjo gets the big run is when they go small and play Ersan less. Also, KCP is for sure back right after the break. Fournier kinda can get his even off the bench and we just don’t know with the Suns yet
