      @RbeZ: Thanks man! Yeah I’d try to add Galo, probably dropping RJax since I’m worried about the ankle

    seems like john henson isn’t getting that much love and wil have less playing time… should I drop him for danny green or copeland?

      @hanns: Yeah didn’t go well tonight… I’m not that huge on either replacement though I’d hold one more game

        @JB Gilpin: 12 mins don’t look good. Uggh, my blocks will be in huge trouble now. I guess I will wait and see 1 more game considering Kidd …

          @DK: Yeah i mean i dropped Henson in one league already since I don’t have a stream spot and I like to stream. Plus my blocks were decent in that one.

          @DK:

          you need to relax man

          you’re already 4 moves in the season is 24 hours old!

            @sam: LOL didn’t know my players would be that bad. And the teams with new coach… them playtime is so inconsistent.

    Demar looks like he’s working on the more traditional Pts/Reb/Stl triple double. He’s at 12/9/6 with 3 assists to boot and there’s still 3 minutes left in the third. I’m really thinking he could improve on that top 40 rank from last year.

      @A Hill O’ Beans: Sure is possible he’s a good player! Oh man, the hate I got ranking him so high last year… Mike Scott is playing great in that game too

    Whatsup guys! Love reading your guys’ stuff every night!

    Quick question,
    I am hurting from Oladipo, MCW, and all those injuries, but I sure dont want to drop them, even in one of my shallow 8 team leagues. Real question is I’ve gotten an offer of KD straight for Lebron, and I’m thinking of throwing out the first 3 weeks of the season anyways, which would reduce KDs damage to only 3 weeks.

    Yay or nay?

      @Benjarvus: Thanks for reading man!

      Whewww, with injury issues it’s tough to not think about it… H2H league right? I think I’ll hold strong with Durant

      • Benjarvus says:

        @JB Gilpin:

        Yup H2H 8 team league.
        To clarify, I have Bron and I want to trade for KD to add to my injury tea party for a couple weeks haha. But either way I’m thinking you’re suggesting taking KD in my situation then.

        I drafted with your guys’ rankings (hence MCW and RainbOladipo) so I’m sticking with ya through thick and thin since you guys still have Durant high!

        Thanks for the help again JB

          @Benjarvus: ahhhhhh my bad misread it. Yup I want Durant, even more so in an 8 teamer since you can find good replacements/streamers. Definitely praying to the injury gods these calls work out!

          • Benjarvus says:

            @JB Gilpin:

            Yeah just need that last playoff spot to do some wrecking in the playoffs!
            I am debating dropping Oladipo to stream but I might just give up 3 weeks and be content with 0.400 by the middle of November, where my guys start playing again.

              @Benjarvus: Yeah in an 8er it’s really close to the range to drop Oladipo, but I’d prob hold too

    Nice pod, you guys are putting in work!

    Somebody just dropped Calderon in my 10-team H2H. Is he worth my 2nd place waiver??

    End of my bench: R. Jackson, Beverley, Draymond

    I don’t know how long Calderon will be out, and it is a pretty shallow league, so it should be pretty easy to stream guys. The problem is that I have a good bench, so it’s hard to let go.

    Just in case, here are some other players on the FA:

    J. Butler, Oladipo, G. Hill, Carroll, Olynyk, Teletovic, Deng, Stuckey

    What do you guys think?

      @decaf: Ehhhh, I’m not too worried about the Waiver spot in a shallower league, but just saw an hour ago Calderon out 2-3 weeks. Yikes. yeah you gotta hold now.

        @JB Gilpin: Yeah, I read that report after posting the question. Agreed that I should just chill for now. Thanks!
